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:
Jen: Dr. Cabral, firstly I want to thank you for providing a place where you share your wealth of knowledge so that we can learn from you, understand the science and make the best choices to become our best selves.I have been listening to you for a couple of months now, found you through FASTer Way and met you at our conference last December. I did some labs myself and am taking steps to find the root cause of my symptoms and get better. My question today, however, is about one of my kids. I have a 16 year old son who is a competitive swimmer and easily spends 15 – 20 hours a week in a chlorinated pool. He is very fit, very little body fat, eats fairly healthy (although we are working to improve that – a 16 yr old athlete eats a lot!). I know that chlorine is not good for us and can disrupt our hormones. I read that as a halogen, chlorine, fluorine and bromine are similar enough to iodine that they can be absorbed by the thyroid instead of iodine and displace the iodine. Spending this much time in the water, what is the best course of action to take? Should we put him on the Daily Thyroid Balance, will this be enough to help? Should we test Thyroid levels first, are there foods he can eat to help minimize the effect of all this extra chlorine, any other protocols to consider?
Jenna; I'm currently in the IHP program and loving it! Question about exercise: I myself have been an avid yogi my whole life and so I find myself doing an hour vinyasa class a 2-3 times a week so my first question is whether that would be considered a workout day in your eyes or if you think more is needed, especially since my body is very accustomed to yoga. The other thing I wanted your opinion on is barre, if you are familiar with this workout (mainly women do it) as it's micro movements of the muscles instead of full range, and also very high rep/ low weight during the arms section of the class. The instructors encourage shaking of the muscles as a sign that we're fatiguing the muscles to their limit, and is explained as a good thing. Thoughts?
Cindy: Dr. Cabral, I am “the Cindy” from Cabral Concept 1339 (Oct 6, 2019). You said that using DNP Level 2 or 3 - for 4 months would raise one’s levels to normal. Well, I believed you… and I still do bc I also took your recommendation to test. It has taken 4 years, but I did it! I have completed EN CBO, EN heavy metal detox, EN Mold Detox, and several EN 7 day detoxes. Fatigue with brain fog and migraines have been real problems for me. But I rarely have it now. I’ve used EN DN Protocol, level 2, sometimes level 3, consistently for over a year (since moving back to the U.S.), and on and off for about 2 years… and I feel blessed! And finally, I ran the big 5! On Nov 3rd, I will get the results. My guess is … probably still some mold - since I seem very sensitive in that area… and hormones! I still sneeze a lot (histamine issue) if I don’t take zyrtec. And I will always need to focus on detox pathways since I am MTHFR positive with 70% decreased enzyme activity. Thyroid ultrasound shows my thyroid is small/flat… but I believe it still works because my thyroid medication has decreased. I do have a question related to the SMART DNA test I ran through EN. With methylation (MTHFR) and Liver Detoxification (COMT), the lab states “2 and 16 Urinary Oestrogen Metabolites.” ??????
Cindy: I do have a question related to the DNA test I ran through EN. With methylation (MTHFR) and Liver Detoxification (COMT), the lab states “2 and 16 Urinary Oestrogen Metabolites.” What does this mean? I have such a weak bladder (always getting up at least 1X during the night), great urgency sporadically during the day, especially when I am doing EN 7 day Detox. Is this related? Any ideas on what causes my weak bladder? About 20 years ago, I had a bladder volume test; that was normal.Again, thank you for all you do to help people learn.I want listeners to know that you create your health each day with every choice. So many health stories are sad, but there are also lots of wins out there! You may share any of my lab data or use any of it with research.
Cindy: Another question… I am probably pitta-vata in body structure. But after 2 years of poor sleep, reduced exercise, increased stress, and 4 years of living in a moldy house… I accumulated 7 prescription medications, brain fog, fatigue, and 25 extra pounds. I have taken thyroid medication for over 20 years, but never felt any symptoms until my 40s. After 4 years of learning and focusing on real health, I feel great! I used Fatlosity for 5 months, lost a few pounds, gained it back, lost it again, kept it off… and then seemed stuck. I eat healthy & live a healthy lifestyle. I have energy to exercise and don’t crash afterwards! I believe my weight struggle is hormonal now, so the big 5 labs will give me direction in that. I still have 10-15 pounds to lose. I still have pain in the bottom and top of my feet, at times and recently headaches have started again. These headaches occurred while I was slowly losing fat. Many times, while having a headache, I would use a coffee enema and yes, my HA would go away. Is it possible that these HA were caused by toxins in my fat being released? Any thoughts are much appreciated! Blessings & Aloha! Dr. Cabral, thank you for sharing your knowledge. I hope soon there will be a place for "Cabral's Good News"-a place for healing stories.
Anton: Hi Dr. Cabral, thanks for the amazing work you are doing, you have impacted my life for the greater.A short question today,Is it okay to mix olive oil and lemon juice in the morning in a little dark glass bottle, and than eat it for lunch?What I mean is if the lemon juice will increase the oxidation if the olive oil?Have a great day!
Jody: Hello Dr. Cabral, I like to come to you for the latest health and wellness information. I have recently come across many disturbing articles/podcasts discussing the issue of lipofuscin and the use of PUFAs and omega 3 fish oil (specifically DHA) these articles state that these fatty acids are toxic and most of use are supplementing if not mega dosing. Please give us your feedback here thank you!
