Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend!
I’m looking forward to sharing with you some of our community’s questions that have come in over the past few weeks…
Let’s get started!
IS: Hi Dr. Cabral, I’m a daily listener of your podcast and often search some information for any health topic. I tried to find an episode about Lichen Planus skin disease but didn’t find anything. My grandmama has this autoimmune disease and I would love to know more about the reasons and mechanisms of the disease. Where should I start when thinking any advices for my grandma? She has suffered from skin and gut issues for her whole life and now she is 88 years old. Thank you for advance!
Tracy: Hello!Thank you for all you do to help others on a daily basis. I gain so much knowledge through you. You give so much hope to me on my health journey. Could you please tell me what I can do to improve low immunoglobulins A (my level is 40) & E (level <2) ?Also, I have antiparietal cell antibodies, struggle with a ton of nutritional deficiencies in spite of eating very healthy, complement c4a is very high at 1839. I had Lyme disease 2 years ago which after 3 rounds of antibiotics I still was not symptom free and have been struggling intermittently since. I am trying to piece the puzzle together. Frustrated because I feel like with my very healthy lifestyle, I should be feeling so much better than I do. Thank you so much!
Paula: Hi Dr Cabral. How can someone do the CBO protocol, the CBO finisher and still be sensitive to numerous herbs? I thought this was going to be resolved once I rebalanced my microbiome but I continue to react to things like Saffron, licorice, cumin and a bunch of other teas and spices! Do you think it takes more than 6 months to fully heal the gut and have a healthy microbiome? Maybe if I continue taking the daily probiotic for a few more months it will improve? What are your thoughts?
Sarah: Hi Dr Cabral, I’m a big fan. Thanks for what you do. I am looking for some advice for my husband. He suffers with issues down the right side of his body. He has tendinitis in his right leg, he has a blind spot in his right eye, a hernia on his lower abdomen and a lump on the right side of his lower back. Is this a liver issue? Would cutting out inflammatory foods such as gluten, dairy, sugar, soy, eggs help? He also gets heart cramping from time to time. He has seen numerous doctors and is always told to go back if things get worse as he is managing but he is in pain everyday and is quite miserable. Do you have any other suggestions? Many thanks.
Julia: Hi I have suffered from IBS (mainly IBS-C) for over 10 years. I have been through a number of diets-GF, DF, FODMAP etc. but will admit its been difficult to stick with it and also then everything I ate just ended up not making me feel good even "healthy" foods.I have done the 7 day cabral detox and have felt amazing afterward so would like to continue and learn more. I also think hormonal testing I would greatly benefit from.
Andrea: After doing the big 5, I had some minor yeast overgrowth, mineral imbalances, very little mercury and some hormonal issues. Nothing too "out of whack" I would say a part from hormones. I am 23, and currently a level 1 IHP student thus follow all of your nutrition, supplementation and exercise recommendations. I haven't ovulated for almost a year now (no signs of my period) after stopping the pill. My estrogen was extremely low (0.5) and so was progesterone (21). The rest was in control including cortisol, DHEA, testosterone, etc. I couldn't test during a specific day in my cycle because I don't get my periods so that was a bit annoying of course. Given that I've followed all your health coach's recommendations (Laura) such as CBO Protocol, CBO finisher, Adrenal soothe at night, DNS, etc would you think that at this point it looks like I have to go the conventional path? I know that you don't give medical advice but I'd love to know your point of view. Do you think I should try hormonal therapy temporarily to force my period? Or should I wait a few more months? Even though I'm still far away of becoming a mother, I do worry about fertility. Not only that but I also get very worried as I know that the period is a sign of health... Thank you so much in advance!
