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:
Savanna: Hi dr cabral, have a question about cholestasis. I was diagnosed with my first pregnancy and induced early. I am pregnant again and am hoping I will not have it again. I can't find much information about how to prevent or treat without drugs. I did 3 of your liver detoxes last year and I'm hoping that will make a difference this pregnancy. Any suggestions you have to maintain a healthy liver during pregnancy? I have heard about maybe taking activated charcoal. Any tips or resources for more info would be great, Thank you
Christine: Hi Dr. Cabral! I’m loving this world of information you’ve created and I’m truly grateful for it! I have a question about my 11 yo daughter. She seems to have a bit of contact dermatitis around her mouth. It looks like small patches of itchy tiny red bumps on the sides of her nose and the corners of her mouth. We’re careful not to use Steroid creams and want a more natural way to help clear it up. Any insight would be great. Thank you for all you do!
Patti: Hi Dr. Cabral, thank you so much in advance for answering my three questions! I’m a 35 year old woman, and I eat a vegetarian diet. 1. get very tired before I get my period, and am wondering if you have any thoughts on how to combat this! I also get breast pain. 2. I get headaches very frequently. Sometimes I will just feel what I call kind of a background headache where it’s not horrible, but I feel like it’s on the brink of getting bad. Sometimes the base of my skull on the right and left side will feel tender. Do you think it could be a tension related headache? Or is there something I should do or look for to figure out what it could be? 3. I have always been a night owl. Sometimes it seems the more I fight it the harder it makes my life. I’m an artist and work for myself. Is there a problem with going to bed at 3am and waking up at 11am? I don’t want to cause my body unnecessary stress, but sometimes I think this is just the way I am and should accept it and not be too hard on myself. Thank you for all the help you can give.
Tee: You are brilliant amazing and incredible Dr Cabral Can Mycophenolic Acid come through an cord blood umbilical stem cell Iv? After I did this Iv I developed mast cell activation. Can you please do a podcast on mycophelic acid ? I am done to 4 organic foods due to reacting with histamine and mast cell, brain fog, limbic system sense of smell has heightened and fatigue. Please any help
Ryan: Hi Dr. Cabral, I donated blood through the American Red Cross on December 2nd and before taking my blood they checked my pulse and my blood pressure. My pulse was in the low 90’s and blood pressure was 140/70. After knowing these numbers I started taking garlic and quercetin to help lower my blood pressure. I recently donated again on the 29th of January and my blood pressure went down to 118/72 which is awesome, but my pulse was in the mid 90’s. Why would my pulse stay high when my blood pressure dropped so much? I thought there was a correlation between the two. How can i lower my resting heart rate? Also I’m a competitive bodybuilder so I eat clean and weight train 5-6 times a week. Thank you for donating your valuable time to help so many people.
Simon: Hello Dr C! Thanks as always for your wisdom. I was wondering if there were any health downsides to eating slightly spoiled or mouldy food, such as browned fruit or bread where you remove the mould? There is so much written these days about the effect of mould toxins (in both food and the environment) and I was wondering whether the same thing applied to fresh food that is 'past its prime’?
