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!
Amanda: Hey Doc, Thanks for all your amazing information. You continue to help me guide my clients to the highest form of health. I have a client with quite a great number of food sensitivities. My question is with removal of heavy metals, balancing of the microbiome & healing and sealing of the gut wall is it possible to restore my clients gut health to the point where he is no longer sensitive to so many foods? Thanks!
Jenn: Hi Stephen, First of all I just want to tell toy how much I LOVE your podcasts! They are my listening choice when I am out walking, hey... why not kill two birds with one stone? I get in my physical activity AND mentally you get the wheels turning in my head, thoughts to ponder. I have a question for you in regards to your Podcast #615, looking at HIIT training. At the tail end of the Podcast you summaries the differences in regards to longer intervals = shorter rest and shorter intervals= longer rests which makes complete sense to me now after your explanation. You stated that the shorter intervals should be done at the end of a strength training session for 3-5 hard workouts. Does this mean 3-5 times through or for 3-5 minutes? Thanks for any info you could pass on, Jenn
Anonymous: Hi Dr. Cabral! I really love listening to your podcasts every morning on my way to work. I'm a female Dietitian, 26 years old, and struggle with gas, bloating and some constipation. I've never struggled with my weight (BMI right around 18) or any health issues, and my hormone levels are always normal. I sleep very well, exercise often and eat a variety of fruits, vegetables, lean protein, nuts/seeds, sweet potatoes and oatmeal and drink PLENTY of water. To my knowledge, I have no food allergies or intolerances and can't seem to figure out why some days I am more bloated or constipated than others. I started taking a probiotic daily about a year ago, which helps a little, but doesn't fix the issue. I tend to eat similar foods each day and can't find a pattern with my symptoms and some days just wake up bloated or produce more gas than others. It's so frustrating and I feel like I shouldn't have these problems at my age! I never had these issues until about 5 years ago. Any advice or help you can provide would be great! I've listened to your previous podcasts about constipation and found them very interesting. Thanks so much!
Megan: Hi Dr. Cabral, Let me begin by thanking you for being such an incredible resource for all of us who listen to you. I have the highest respect for you and am so grateful for your generosity in sharing all of what you know! My question is in regards to my 10 year old son. Let me give you a bit of the back story. 2 years ago he started suffering with terrible eye tics. It started with rapid blinking and then turned into hard blinks with some facial scrunching as well. It was constant and so sad, very hard to watch him suffer. We did go to a biomedical dr who ran a nutreval and we found he had yeast overgrowth and leaky gut. We cleared up the yeast using biociden and a biofilm supplement along with others that he needed (zinc, B complex, vitamin D, alpha lipoic acid, and restore for the gut). We cleared up the tics quite quickly and really have been symptom free for 2 years. He does flare a little with illness, so when he gets sick he has a little twitch but nothing at all like he had. I guess he is considered a PANS child. We have completed the nutraeval twice since then, the last one being in June. The yeast had returned despite following his food sensitivity diet (we also had the sensitivity test done as well). We started the biociden and the biofilm supplement again and also continued using the other supplements he needs as well. We have followed our plan fairly strictly and have kept with it for 2 years. So I am a bit confused as to why the yeast came back. The last week or so I have noticed some of that blinking again. Not at the same severity it was to begin with but I am confused as to why it is returning and what may be causing the inflammation which would in turn cause the tics? I guess my question is how do I best support the immune system to help reverse this response? What do you think I should do from here to help keep these tics from returning? Thank you so much for your help and I apologize for this long winded question, I just felt it was necessary to explain a little of our background! Thank you again, Megan
Megan: Hello! What's your best recommendation for boosting glutathione levels? Levels came back on a nutreval as very low in this area. We have tried using pharmanac and NAC pills but have yet to be successful in boosting these numbers. Thank you in advance!
