Check out today's questions:
Andrea: Good evening! I have been listening to your podcast for months now and am so thankful for them! Each episode is jam packed with information to optimize my health and teach me so I can share with others. I am a personal trainer and have been approached by people who take and sell Isagenix Products. I am not sure if you have heard of this line, but wanted to get your thoughts on the products. Thank you so much in advance! -Andrea
Lily: Hi Dr. Cabral! I absolutely love your podcast - especially the house calls. There are so many different subjects you tackle, and it’s so great that you give reference to specific episodes if listeners want to know more about them. I’ve learned so much from you, and can’t thank you enough for that. Now, I have a health question which I hope you can help with: my problem is that I feel bloated, look 6 months pregnant and have flatulence almost after every meal. I’m 39 years old and have had this problem for maybe 10-15 years. I’ve been vegan for 5 years now, don’t eat gluten or sugar, have regular bowel movement every morning and I work out 5-6 days a week, do yoga, not really stressing out too much. I only eat raw foods (fruit) in the morning, in my smoothie. Cutting dairy and gluten has helped a little bit, but it’s still pretty bad. I also do intermittent fasting, use probiotics and digestive enzymes, but nothing is helping :( Other than PCOS, I don’t have any health conditions that I’m aware of. So, what do you think is the problem? What’s would be the best thing to try to get better? I live in the Netherlands, so can’t order any of your tests unfortunately, but any advice on how to start treating this would be MUCH appreciated. Thanks so much in advance!
Thomas: Hello Dr. Cabral I love your podcast. I am a 43 year old male 6'2" 175 eat very healthy gluten free a and exercise almost daily in some form. I have had a blood test and was told my HEMOGLOBIN A1C was 5.7 a bit high. Like I said I eat very healthy and even have a very low sugar diet. I went on a 30 day NO sugar diet and did the test again. I had the same exact results they did not budge. I then decided to test my blood sugar on my own through out the day. Before and after meals, early in the morning and everything came out great. Very good readings. So my question is should I be concerned that my HEMOGLOBIN A1C is 5.7 and can not be able to change that? For the record my parents and one of my sisters also has the same exact reading 5.7. If there is anything you think I should do please let me know. Thanks Thomas
Michael: Stephen: I have been experiencing inflammation in either of my eyes for the last 24 months. I went to primary care and an eye doctor who called the issue “episcleritis”. Frequency was either eye being inflamed every 60 days or so. Doctor prescribed an artificial tear product that didnt seem to change the frequency. They tested for rheumatoid arthritis and did not find anything. Last May, I added a daily multi-vitamin and an extra C tablet to my regimen. I went 6 months before I had a recurrence...since then I have had several days of redness/inflammation/pain in either eye. Is there another recommendation besides the continued increase of vitamin intake (preventive)? I typically double up in vitamin C and take ibuprofen during the inflammation events. Is there another recommendation for treatment during the event? Appreciate your podcast...heard you on EOFire and appreciated your approach/insight. Thanks. MLC
Angelita: I am 63, 5'6" , 140lbs. Exercise on a very regular basis. Love my smoothies, eat well and exclude anything white in my diet. Am on medication for cholesterol, blood pressure and Paxil. I am confident that these meds could have been avoided if I had been more informed of diet when I was younger. Throughout the last 40 years, I have been always physically active and hope to continue. I just discovered your insightful podcasts. I am truly confused whether I need to take multi-vitamins. There are so many out there. What do you recommend for someone my age? II live in Quebec, Canada and our winters are quite long. Do I need a mineral boost throughout this season? Thank you.
