Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows!
This is where we answer our community's wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track!
Check out today's questions:
Anonymous: Hi Dr Cabral, I'm a long time listener and have used some of your tests and products. I truly appreciate everything you do. My question for you is about my recent food sensitivity test results. Out of the three levels of reactivity (high, moderate, mild), I was moderately high for dairy and moderate for 22 other foods, such as nuts, gluten, green beans, peas, soy, coconut, and eggs. This seems like a lot of foods to have a sensitivity to so I'm wondering if I should do your SIBO/Candida protocol a 2nd time (did it earlier this year) in case I have SIBO/Candida issues again or if I have to just omit these foods for a while to give my body a rest. As always, appreciate any insights you can share on how best to move forward.
Zoe: hi Dr Cabral, another question for you to kindly answer - i wondered if you had any thoughts how to manage a combination of rosacea and rayneuds (as, they appear to me, to be equal and opposites) - ie what is good for rayneuds - like saunas, keeping warm, spices - is bad for rosacea. Thanks, as always. Zoe
Jenmarie: Hi Dr. Cabral, I am trying to figure out my body type and what diet works best for my body type. I am 5'6" weigh about 135 lbs, my shoulders are as wide as my hips, Smaller breasts, long neck, and If I put my middle finger and thumb around my wrist, my thumb overlaps my middle finger. Can you tell me what body type this is and recommend what diet I can benefit from the best? I am training for a marathon as well so I want to feel and look my best. Thank you so much for all your advise. Jenmarie
Jenett: Hello Dr. Cabral, Over the past month, I have been feeling increasingly fatigued, have had a lot of headaches, neck pain and overall weakness. I had blood work done and found I am low on Iron but I've been taking it for a while now, with little improvement. I try to drink coffee to give me an alert boost but it doesn't help much. As much as I love coffee, it doesn't love me, as It never fails that I breakout after drinking it for more than once a week. Why is this, and what could all of these symptoms be a sign of? IS there a test I could run to determine what is going on? Many thanks, Jenett
Kelly: Hello Dr. Cabral. I love your podcast and listen every day! I am a 31 year old female that has suffered from on-again/off-again bulimia since I was 15. The root of my bulimia has always been my desire to lose weight. I am VERY pear-shaped (medium sized on the top, very large in the hips, thighs, and butt) and have always been overweight despite infinite futile attempts, which always leads me back to bulimia. Two questions- FIRST QUESTION: Can you speak to why some women have such large bottom halfs? I have been taking DIM, Calcium D-Glucarate, adrenal support herbs, extremely clean vegan diet, as well as progesterone cream on days 14-28 of my cycle to try to balance out my hormones after blood tests revealed almost non-existent progesterone levels and average to above-average estradiol levels. SECOND QUESTION: What are the long term effects of bulimia? I have always suspected that my bulimia habit is working against my weight loss efforts due to an insulin rollercoaster. Thank you for your time!
Katie: I love all the tips and education you share, thank you! My question is about what could cause areas of my body to “fall asleep” During a yoga flow? I know it typically has something to do with circulation but I’m moving and breathing yet seem to be the only one in my class that constantly has to come out of a pose to “shake” the tingling feeling in my legs, arms & back. I’ve asked a couple of my teachers and mentioned it to other students and they were confused - like they’d never heard of that before. It happens a lot when I sleep, too, but that seems more normal. Is this an indication of a problem that the “google dr” just doesn’t know about?
