We're back with our 2nd Cabral #HouseCall of the weekend!
I really enjoyed answering yesterday's questions and looking forward to tackling today's Q&A...
So let's get started!
Tracy: Hi Doctor Cabral. Thank you thank you for all the info. I was wondering how you feel about consuming coconut water daily. I try and drink a 16oz bottle of organic harmless harvest coconut water every day (supposedly this brand is closest to the real thing and I truly enjoy it) 1. Does this count towards my daily water intake? 2. is it too much sugar at 28g, but since it is natural sugar I feel it is ok? 3. are there many benefits of drinking quality coconut water? Background, I do suffer from SIBO and many other intestinal and skin issues. Thank you.
Jenn: Hi there! I had also sent this email to the firstname.lastname@example.org address too and never got a response. I am very interested in trying out the daily shake, but I need to make sure there is no caffeine, even green tea, in the product. My body is very sensitive to it and I have a hard time tolerating it at all. I hope to hear from you soon so I can make my purchase!
Lisa: Hi Dr. Cabral, I take Epsom salt baths 3 times a week using Dr. Teals Epsom salts unscented. I took you up on your recommendation of using San Francisco Salt Co Epsom salts and bought a gigantic bag of it. Unfortunately the two times I used it I got a huge headache about 2-4 hours later. I would love to know why that is. I hate that I stare at this beautiful big bag of salt I can't seem to tolerate. Btw, I use about 1 -1.5 cups of salt in the bath water. Thanks much! Lisa
Cynthia: Can you please do a podcast on silent reflux. I was just diagnosed and I'm looking for a natural cure to help me with my symptoms. Thank you…
Max: Hi Dr. Cabral! I've been listening to your podcast since last summer and it's been a great source of information. I've made many changes to my habits after listening to your podcasts, including the detox, and having smoothies every morning. It's definitely improved my daily life! Thank you for your work! My question to you now is about asthma and pet allergies. I was diagnosed with asthma at 32 y/o. After allergy tests, I was told I'm highly allergic to pet dander (dogs, cats) and common house dust mite. After a stern chat from my Dr., I found new homes for my cats, got rid of rugs and heavy fabrics, and "allergen proofed" my house. It's been 6-7 years of clean breathing with no asthma attacks; the only exceptions when visiting households with pets, and being exposed to them for over 3-4 hours, or overnight stays (and I'd take medication like Allegra and or albuterol pump in these occasions). Interestingly enough, the asthma/allergic reaction varies depending on the breed of dogs I'm exposed to (for example, hardly any reaction to a yorkie-terrier, but then get short of breath near a bulldog). My question is - should I never consider getting a pet again? Or are there any non-medication alternatives to alleviate these allergic reactions so I could potentially get a pet? Again, thank you for your work and time. Max
Lindsey: Hi, I've spent most of the winter mixing interval sessions on the treadmill and with weight sessions I have sore shin/ thigh and hip pain on one side; possible Sacroiliac joint? It's effecting my training now. I've changed shoes, rested a few days, massage etc but not helping. I will get back outside on the road when the weather is better but in the meantime what can I do? Is it the treadmill impact? Thanks for your fabulous podcast and help x
Jeni: Hi Dr. Cabral! Words cannot describe how much you have changed mine and my family's health since I have discovered your podcasts! Thank you! I have asked questions before regarding my husband and children's health issues (to which your advice worked 100% on each question), but have always put my health issues off for another time. I am ready to start feeling better as well! My story is a little more complicated than theirs. My main symptoms are hives (usually around my joints but also on any part of my limbs) and joint pain. The hives also come on any time of day or night, but really appear after I have had any type of contact on my skin. (Example: when I go skiing, my boots rub in certain places on my feet. My ankles and feet are super swollen with hives for the rest of the evening.) Most Dr.'s have automatically chalked it up to a food intolerance and Rheumatoid Arthritis. I have taken the steps from a medical doctor to do allergy tests for food, but all have come back negative. Let me also say, they did NOT do a food sensitivity test. I have done the Whole 30 program to help me eliminate foods but in doing, the hives and severe joint pain have NOT gone away. I am in my mid 30s and this has started just a few years ago, but has gotten progressively worse and is starting to affect my life. Does this sound like a classic case of Rheumatoid Arthritis to you, and if so, what should my next step be? I don't love the idea of taking medication to improve it but am starting to feel like that is my next step. I just recently listened to your podcast on nightshades, and am just starting to eliminate that. What else do you recommend?
I hope you enjoy today's Q&A and all the tips along the way!
