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:
Julie: Hi Dr Cabral, my daughter (18) was diagnosed with Mono just before basketball playoffs in 2020. To help her with her energy levels during that time she was given a b12 injection before each game. Within a month or so she developed severe acne after never having skin issues of any kind so we feel certain it is injection related. Do you have any suggestions for clearing this type of acne. It is severe and beginning to scar her face. Thank you for your help! Julie
Thomas: Hi Dr. Cabral, I recently completed the 21 day detox, and I am also in the process of achieving level one and level two IHP certification. I truly enjoy your passion and ability to teach all the material in an effective, engaging, and enjoyable way! I wear an Oura ring to track sleep and other variables such as HRV. On day two of the 21 day detox, I noticed an obvious and significant increase in my HRV that lasted for the entirety of the 21 day period. Following the completion of the detox, I noticed my HRV settled back into my normal/pre-detox levels. The magnitude of the HRV change was roughly 20ms. My question is - To which component of the detox would you attribute the favorable increase in heart rate variability? I assume it’s one or more of the ingredients in either the FM or AYU detox, but I would really appreciate any insight you can offer. Would it be recommended to use a supplement to increase HRV on a regular basis, or is it just better to focus on a holistic approach to maximize PNS activation? Thank you! Tom
Savita: Hi Dr. Cabral, I'm very grateful for you and your podcast! I was wondering, what are your thoughts on the COVID-19 Vaccine. Thank you. Savita
Victoria: Hi Cabral! I just learned that my 5 year old niece has a heart murmur. Do you have any recommendations she should follow for this? Currently and also growing up in effort to eventually grow out of it ? Thank you!
Bethany: Hi Dr. Cabral - love your podcast and appreciate what you do for all of us. I have a question regarding my 17 year old daughter. She has recently been diagnosed with Aortic Ventricular Tachycardia and arrhythmia. My question is... can this be caused by Hashimoto's, which she has also recently been diagnosed with - her thyroid antibodies are off the chart. Additionally, any words or advice you can give regarding treatment for this to help ease our anxiety would be appreciated. It's obviously scary for us parents when anything health related is happening with our children. Thank you!
Aaron: Hi Dr. Cabral! Thanks for sharing your knowledge with these podcasts. Would you discuss the difference between Vitamin D3 absorption and utilization? I have listened to a TON of your podcasts, and relistened to all the Vit D topics. You mention needing cofactors like Vit K, Mg, etc. I use 2 scoops of DNS in almond milk each morning with my 6 drops Vit D3, take Histpro, B-complex, and 1Mg at lunch, and balanced zinc with Mg at dinner. My Vit D levels with PCP won't go much above 33. (I had gone from 5 drops to 7 with no change, so settled in on roughly 35units/lbs.) I have heard others say oil based capsules are better than drops for accurate dosing. Do you recommend drops because there is some level of sublingual capillary absorption? If so, do I need to take the DNS a couple hours before Vit D so the cofactors are already in my system, ready to work? Are the cofactors primarily for absorption of Vit D into the body, or primarily for conversion of Vit D for use in the body? This question is getting long, and I hope you understand what I'm asking. Thanks again for getting deep on bio-regulatory medicine!
