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:
Elizabeth: Hi Stephen, I have a friend who has a family member suffering with corticobasal degeneration. Understand it's a rare dis-ease and wondered if you have had any experience with this treatment or if it's possible to be treated? Similar to yourself I believe everything can be treated or reversed but I am not familiar with CBD. Thanks for all you do and inspiring others to better health!
Rachel: Good Morning Dr Cabral my name is Rachel I located in Queensland Australia. I have listened to your podcast with Melissa Ambrosini and your words spoke to me. I would love to know if you take online clients from Australia? I am also extremely interested if you offer any nutrition training? I am looking to start my course very soon and I would love to be able to take part any training that you offer as I really understanding the concept of what is best when it comes to health is individual for every BODY! Any information you could give me would be greatly appreciated, even if you can suggest a training course that I could complete that you would suggest.
Katie & Susanne: Hi there, I’m in Australia and I would love to have a consultation with him as his story really struck a cord with me and he sounds like the right person to help me get well again. Is that possible via Skype of do I need to be living in America? Thanks so much. Kind regards, Katie
Danielle: Hello! I would really appreciate your advice on post pregnancy iron deficiency anemia please, also what are your thoughts on black strapp molasses as a natural cure/treatment? Many thanks Danielle
Lindsey: I am a firm believer of functional medicine and rebalancing the body to heal any disease. My daughter’s father was recently diagnosed with severe kidney failure. They are still running test to see what the next step is but right now they’re thinking dialysis. He’s 34 years old and has been on hydrochlorothiazide, verapamil, and enalapril for high blood pressure for the pass 6+ years. He believed his high blood pressure was linked to these terrible migraines he’s been suffering from for over 10 years. He was an avid user of over the counter pain pills to help with the migraines, especially excedrin. He follows the standard American diet with a lot of diary and no pork or red meat. I’ve listened to your podcasts on high blood pressure, migraines, high histamine foods, etc. Along with the other information I know, I’m starting him on a detox tomorrow eliminating a lot of the foods he currently eats. My thoughts are to find out what is triggering his migraines because I am almost certain it’s food related. He’s also going to start adjusting his schedule to getting 8 hours of sound sleep, working out (cardio and light weight training), and intermittent fasting. My question is, am I on the right track? My goal is to get him off of the pharmaceutical drugs and show him that he can balance his high blood pressure by changing his diet and lifestyle. I want him to work with a functional medicine doctor but he’s still skeptical and brainwashed by conventional medicine. He’s still taking his high blood pressure medication because everyone is telling him to keep doing it. What supplements can he add to help with the kidney failure and stress? And also, what labs would you recommend him to start with?
Jen: Hi Dr Cabral, I was recently diagnosed with a mild case of Candida. My MD wanted to put me on antibiotics, but not only do I prefer to cure it naturally, as I understand it, Candida is fungal and not bacterial, so antibiotics wouldn’t work anyway. Is that correct? I wondered if you could recommend a natural way to cure this mild case? I understand certain foods like cold smoothies and salads, can add to the dampness in the body and that I should stick to warm veggies and lean protein. Would that be your recommendation as well? Also, I have heard about accelerated silver and wondered about your thoughts on using it? Any advise is MUCH appreciated and respected. Thank you Jen
Mary: Hello. I use your daily nutritional support shake and fruit and vegetable blend and have also used the detox you offer. I perceive that I am getting great health benefits from all of these products and have gotten several friends and family members hooked as well. I also listen to your podcast and find it very valuable and educating. Thank you for all you do. Could you explain your thoughts on the fad of low lectin and low oxylate diets and how this plays into your suggestion of having a predominately plant based diet. I would also like to know your thoughts on the Ayurvedic perspective of regular green smoothies being aggravating on the physiology of many people as they can be hard to digest. I presume this is due to the high fiber content and maybe the possible affects of lectins and oxylates on the immune system? Thank you for your time!
