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!
Melanie: First of all, thank you so much for taking the time to answer our questions. I’ve been doing seed cycling for a while now, so I do the pumpkin and flax seed in the follicular phase and then the sunflower & sesame in the luteal. Does that mean I can’t eat those seeds at other times? I love pumpkin and sesame and I would love to have them more often. Could I for example have pumpkin seeds in the luteal phase? I hope my question makes sense!
Bettina: Dear Dr. Cabral Thank you for sharing your knowledge I really appreciate listening to your podcasts and getting more knowledge every day. I've come across this product called OMEGA 3 from Nordfolk and I would love to know your thoughts. The oil is made of the zooplankton Calanus finmarchicus. The is EPA / DHA / SDA is bound in wax esters. When taking two capsuls a person gets: SDA 79mg, EPA 68mg, DHA 58mg, Total OMEGA 3 221 mg, ketolic acid 30 mg, Sterol (Brassicasterol etc.) 11 mg, Astaxanthin 1000 μg and D3 5 μg. What are your thoughts and could I take these instead of Nordic Naturals cod liver oil? I would love to use only your products but not livng in the US unfortunately my country puts huge taxes, I know this is out of your hands just mentioning it to say why I ask for alternatives :-) Thank you for your time. Best regards, Bettina
Lyndsey: Hi Dr Cabral I’m wondering if you can answer this question. Both my husband and I have apple watches and wear them to bed and get our sleep data from this. My resting heart rate goes down to 58-63 but my husbands resting heart rate is from 38-57. He often gets notifications in the morning that his heart rate went under 40. Is this ok?? I’m quite worried about it. Even during the middle of the day his resting heart rate during the day gets down to 47. I’m 36 and he is 34. He is a teacher and is quite a I’ve all day. Thanks for your help.
Jenna: Can you please talk about autoimmune hepatitis in the liver? What are the root causes of this and also what are the solutions you can think of? Prescribing immunosuppressants is what the doctors want to do for this, but I know there has to be another way. Thank you!
Lara: Hi, dr. Cabral :) I like putting all things I can into my smoothie, so I blend berries with different types of lettuce and herbs, add some seeds like chia and sunflower or pumpkin & linseed (depending on seed cycling), sometimes walnuts, hemp protein, etc.. I like using a lot of cinnamon, turmeric powder (with a bit of black pepper), ginger root in it as well, but I was wondering, how much of each is too much? Because I put A LOT! And too much of a good thing isn’t necessarily better, right? Lara
Shelly: Hi Dr. Cabral! I listen to your podcast every morning & you are like part of our family now. I am wondering about water consumption. I drink half my body weight in ounces per day but was wondering if water combined with other ingredients counts. I make a daily smoothie with almond milk, powders, fruits & veggies. Usually I need to add water because of the thickness. Does that water count & how much water is too much water for a 44-year-old, 5’5”, 130-pound woman? Thank you so much for your ongoing support.
