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, thanks so much for continuing to produce such helpful information and insight to healing and optimizing health. I listen to your podcast daily and have shared various episodes with family members whom I believe would benefit. My question is about GI health--I've been working with my naturopathic doctor to heal mild gut inflammation I began experiencing around this past Christmas. In addition, I've also been working with diet and supplementation (digestive enzymes, probiotic, aloe vera after meals to soothe gut, etc) to address improved gut motility to eliminate constipation and now have improved bowel regularity and volume (BM at least 1-2 times per day, Bristol scale type 3 or 4). This week I had an ultrasound with my OB/GYN to rule out concerns I had with pelvic pain; while the ultrasound was negative for gynocological concerns, the tech reported that the imaging process was made more difficult due to an "overabundance of stool". I'm confused about why I am otherwise not feeling constipated and having productive BM's--is it possible that my gut motility is adequate but I'm somehow not emptying my bowels completely or have buildup in my large intestine? Most every BM feels "complete". I look forward to your response and appreciate your time!
Michael: I enjoy your podcast very much. I found out about you from the Food Heals podcast. I live in Ann Arbor, MI, and so far could not find an FIR Detox Sauna based on your recommendations. Before I buy anything, I'd like to try it with medical supervision. Could you help with some suggestions? Thanks.
Jessica: Hi, I heard Dr Cabral on the Melissa Ambrosini podcast. Dr Cabral was inspiring to say the least. I'll get straight to the point. My father in law has recently been diagnosed with ALS. Is this something you can help with at your studio? We have confirmation from the neurologist, we have just been to see a naturopath and she is running some tests (to name a few: Hair trace mineral analysis, Magnesium serum levels, Zinc status test). From the podcast you seemed like the kind (only) person who could help. The MD doctors here just gave the diagnosis and said 'Go write your bucket list and live your best life for the next 2-5 years' WTF! After some research I have come to realise ALS is not some mystery disease but like all 'disease' just the body telling us that these are toxic things in there affecting our system. We are in Australia, willing to travel! Can you help or lead us in the right direction? Jess
Bruno: Hi Dr Cabral, huge fan from Europe. I would love to do the food sensitivity test, but I saw that you don't ship to my country. Any recommendations on tests to do here. Can't seem to find anything similar here. Cheers! Bruno
Katie: Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us, since learning about your podcast I feel I finally have information I can trust for my daily questions about health and wellness - I credit my current quality of life to you because I now know dairy, gluten & egg are sensivities for me and taking those foods out has helped me more than I could ever have enjoyed those foods - truly life changing. My question is about Juice Plus - I have been taking the orchard and vineyard blend capsules for a little over a year and because last year was my best year yet I am scared to stop taking them BUT would really like to know what you think. I stopped taking their daily complete shake because it contains pumpkin (one of my other food sensitivities) and switched to the equilibrium daily support shake. I now take my fruit and veggie juice plus capsules in the morning with my lime water with the hope they are comparable with the juiced powder you talk about all the time. Can’t wait to hear what you think - sure appreciate your thoughts and expertise!
Jeff: Hi Dr. Cabral, I’m writing on behalf of my wife, Amanda. She has currently been nursing our daughter for 6 months. She has gotten several clogged ducts which resulted in Mastitis at least 3 times already. She has been prescribed Keflex for the infection each time but we are not crazy about the idea of taking that many rounds of antibiotics. She would like to stop breastfeeding seeing as she’s back to work and has had several complications with going several hours without nursing or pumping. Unfortunately, the typical advice is “skip feedings and pump less” but she seems to have an oversupply and that method just results in more clogged ducts. She has tried several natural remedies, I.e. cabbage leaves, sage/peppermint teas. We are now worried it may be an issue with her prolactin levels. Her OBGYN Just today suggested a prolactin inhibitor. She has reduced the number of feeding/pumping sessions but her milk supply remains the same. If you have any tips or advice we would greatly appreciate it. We are huge fans of the podcast and your advice is rapidly changing our nutritional and exercise habits. Thank you for everything you do!
Chris: Hello, I am inquiring about the approximate wait time for acceptance of the "private concierge consulting" for a new client. I am writing on behalf of my brother who is overweight, has back problems so severe he now walks with a cane at 49 yrs old. We are desperate to help him before he falls to becomes so debilitated he has to be in a wheelchair. Thank you, Chris
