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:
Korindi: My 15 year old daughter who has Down Syndrome was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos Encephalitis. She has had some major mental behavior changes. Before the world shut down she was a happy high functioning freshman and was even on the cheer squad. I have fought hard for a diagnosis knowing this was not DS related and something more was going on. Is there one test that you recommend more than the other to order for her? Also what supplements are best to lower the inflammation on her brain. I have an appointment for a endocrinologist and a rheumatologist. Is there anything else you would recommend? I need my daughter back. TIA
Paula: Hi Dr Cabral, I am a level 2 student and am really enjoying all the material. I travel to Brazil quite often because my family lives over there and I'm getting a bit concerned about getting infected with parasites or H. pylori... I have a few questions that I hope you don't mind answering:1. When eating out over there, I'm pretty sure they make ice out of tap water and not mineral water. Should I be worried or does the freezing process kill parasites/H.pylori?2. How would I know if I get infected with H. pylori/parasites? Would I experience some sort of diarrhoea/stomach pain or not necessarily?3. Any tips to reduce my risk of getting infected? Any supplements?Thank you so much!
Mo: Hi Dr Cabral! Hope all is well. Today I have a question about my fathers blood work. His monocytes came back at a 0.4, Eosinophils at 0.2 and Basophils at 0.0, Neutrophils 2.2, Lymphocytes 1.6. He's 56, did the 21 day Dr Cabral Detox, Heavy Metal Detox, Intestinal Cleanse 2x, and is finishing up the CBO right now. He will also be doing the Mold Protocol soon after. Hes taking all EQ brand: Adrenal soothe at night and Adrenal Energy in the morning, Omega 3, D3, Full Spectrum Magnesium,Balanced Zinc,FullSpec C. Hes slowly coming off hormone therapy so he'll be taking natural supplements to boost his test levels. His diet is exactly what you recommend. Hes lost 20KG since starting these protocols (he had a terrible diet before) and he feels great. Also, his Potassium level is 5.3. I'm just hoping for some insight as to whether these numbers are okay being this low/high or if he should do anything about it. Thank you as always, you are the best!
Anonymous: Hi Dr Cabral!I’m in my middle 20’s and I have a goal in mind to become a Functional Medicine doctor.I live in Europe so my only option is to going for the MD degree.I need your help with the details to put my mind at ease.How does it work with residency if you already know you want to practice functional medicine / integrative medicine?First it will be 5-6 years in med school, but what happens after that? Could I study FM after that and then open my practice or should I pick up a conventional residency first? And if, which one is most in line with FM?Sorry if the question isn’t that clear but I hope you get the point.You could answer the question in the way that if you where in my shoes, how would you be doing it if you know all what you know today (which is a lot, lol).I hope that you, your team and family has a wonderful day.God bless you!
Olivia: Hello,I was wondering if you could let me know what courses/certifications I would need to complete in order to be considered as a potential candidate to be one of Dr Cabral's coaches? I have a very similar story (health derailed by long-term antibiotic use as a teenager, followed by long-term SSRI use). I've been on a personal journey of discovery for 25 years and have learned a great deal. Although I am a qualified personal trainer and yoga instructor, my knowledge includes aspects of Chinese medicine and acupuncture, and I am passionate about biochemistry, in particular endocrinology. I would very much appreciate some guidance on how best to optimise my knowledge, so that I can serve others under the leadership of a physician such as Dr Cabral. Healing myself and helping others understand their bodies in order to optimise health is my calling.Thank you in advance for your time.Best wishes, Olivia
Erin: Hi Dr Cabral! I’m a longtime fan of yours. I learn so much from you and my family knows of you as “my mentor” :). I went to see if your virus protocol is available but saw it was taken down. Ugh!! I can’t take the censoring anymore :/ are you making this available through email ? Thanks for all you do!
