Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend!
I’m looking forward to sharing with you some of our community’s questions that have come in over the past few weeks…
Let’s get started!
Abigail: Hi Dr. Cabral! I'm an IHP, and I have a client with Down syndrome (18 yr old female) who is starting to experience symptoms of acute regression. We have done lab testing and are working on correcting her "root cause" imbalances, but I was wondering if you could point me toward any resources (podcasts, websites, etc) to further my education in this area since I don't know much about acute regression and how to help "reverse" it naturally. All of the information I've found so far is from more of a conventional perspective, so any of your insight would be very helpful!
Adrianne: Hey Doc! Thanks for showing up everyday to make the world a healthier place. My sister in law was told by her dermatologist that she has barnacles. She showed me one next to her eye. Google calls it Seb-k and says the cause is unknown. I am thinking maybe a deficiency or toxicity. Can you shed any light on the subject? Thanks!
Laura: I would like to ask two questions.1- I have recently purchased your Daily Nutritional Support. On the list of ingredients is Zinc Picolinate. According to some studies it has been found that this form of Zinc may cause liver damage. Do you believe this to be true? If so are you considering changing to another form of Zinc? 2- I have read your book The Rain Barrel Effect. I enjoyed it and am very interested in helping a family member with MS. Have you found that going through your cleanses has helped reverse the symptoms of MS and or cured anyone from this condition? Thank you for your time. Laura
Darren:Good day Dr Cabral. Is there any truth to ghee is used in ayurveda as the first thing in the morning on an empty stomach as doing this will lower cholesterol levels, aid in unblocking "clogged" arteries (by preventing endothelial cells) and getting a daily supply of omega 3s and vitamin E? Or is that overstating its properties? I know it's a saturated fat but are there any concerns with using it or who should avoid it if any? Thanks for your help
Concerned Mother: Dear Dr. Cabral, I've been listening to your show for a while now and am working with one of your health coaches. I'm very happy seeing some changes in my own health. I know my son needs help too and I'm hoping you can tell us the best way to begin. He is 9 years old and was adopted as an infant. We know his birth mother smoked regularly during the pregnancy. He had a regular delivery but was not breast fed. He's had a few rounds of antibiotics over the years for rashes that turned into infections. He is overweight (none of the other members of our family are so I wonder if genetics play a role in that) and has recently developed asthma. He has always had a runny nose and gets rashes and hives regularly. He has learning disabilities and when he was younger he needed occupational therapy for eating and walking. He is still lagging in physical skills and coordination and will stuff his mouth full and not chew his food well no matter how much coaching we offer. I sometimes think his sense of fullness may not be functioning well. Every time I go to the doctor for any of these issues I end up feeling blamed for his weight but they don't offer any really helpful advice. Where would you recommend we start in helping him rebalance his body? Thank you so much for all your help!
Simon: Hi Dr Cabral – I am wondering if there are any downsides to taking L-glutamine long term? I have been taking it consistently for the last 5 or so years, ranging from a steady 5mg per day, to larger less-frequent doses (10-15mg) on strength training days only. As someone who both exercises frequently and has been trying to heal ongoing IBS/gut permeability issues, glutamine seems like a great dual-benefit supplement but I just want to check there aren’t any long-term downsides. Thanks!
