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!
Nycole: Hi Dr Cabral, I love the podcast and your positive energy, thank you for all your work!I have spots on my skin called CARP, confluent and reticulated papillomatosis. I have had them for 3 years, wondering where it comes from and what to do about it. I eat a mostly paleo diet and recently strictly gluten free due to celiac. Thanks!
Rebecca: I’m looking for information on an elevated secretory IGa, my results were >6000 Anti-Gliiadin IgA was >500 Occult blood 77 I had a gi map test completed by a different company and I don’t feel like they understood the results. I’m concerned about celiac and will start removing gluten from my diet. And get a FOBT from PCP. Just looking for more insight on the elevated IgAs Thank You so very much, I have spent a small fortune and don’t feel like I got the best support or answers to my labs. The health coach said she had never seen such high IgA,s before As well I’m enrolled in the IHP 1&2 program, just signed up 2 weeks ago.
Maria: Hi Dr. Cabral! I have a question in regards to vitamin D levels. I have had my levels tested 4 times over the last 9 months. I can’t get my levels to budge from 30-35. I was supplementing with 5000 IU of the EquiLife drops and then bumped up to 10000 IU two months before my last test, but to no avail. I have listened to your podcast on the cofactors for vitamin D absorption many times. I use the DNS powder daily, so I’m getting all the other vitamins and minerals you mention in that podcast that are required for absorption. I had been taking my vitamin D at breakfast with my morning smoothie which contains 1-2 tablespoons of seeds. I just started taking it at lunch time instead and also started supplementing with additional K2 (MK7) at that time as well. I live in the Midwest, so sunlight vitamin D is really only possible from June-September. Not sure what else I can do to get my levels up. I am on month 1 of the CBO finisher, after completion of CBO protocol. I’m sure poor gut absorption has had something to do with it? Any other advice on how to get my levels up or why my levels haven’t budged at all?! Do you have a favorite vitamin D light that you recommend?
Karen: Dear Dr. Cabral, Thank you for your podcast and the easy way you get the information out about having good health. I am 62 and in the best health of my life thanks to many changes I have made. 10 years ago, I switched to a gluten free diet, the change it made in how I felt was amazing. Since then, I have been devouring books on health, and continuing to modify my diet and exercise. I am now dairy free, (a recent change) and eat very little sugar products. At 62 I am back to the weight I was when I graduated from high school! My question for you is about a condition I have on my lower lip, it has been there for about 25 years in varying degrees, and is called Actinic Cheilitis. It is a continual sloughing of skin cells on my lower lip, sometimes it is mildly painful, and is worse in the winter months. My dermatologist gave me a cream to treat it, a strong pharmaceutical that actually works by destroying the skin. I went through 1 round of this and couldn’t tolerate the cream. The pain and ugliness on my lip was awful and I experienced body aches, headaches and couldn’t sleep, a condition that is a rare side effect of this cream. As this is considered a pre-cancerous condition, I need to do something. I appreciate any suggestions you have.
Dawn: I started the 7 day detox and after the 3rd shake, I felt nauseous? Is this normal? Should I continue on?
Bettina: Hi Stephen thank you for your podcast, i only recently started listening to you. I got your rRain Barrel book and the 14 day detox. would love to have the tests done however with the $ exchange and taxes it get really expensive. can you suggest any labs in Brisbane or Gold Coast that you would recommend. looking forward to hearing from you. sincerely Bettina
