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:
Ruth: Hi Dr Cabral, my daughter introduced me to your podcasts and I am so glad she did. I listened to podcast 1173 on “why you need to boost your low T naturally”. I have been getting the pelleted HRT for a few years now and the day I listened to this podcast I had just gotten pelleted again. I think it will be my last one after listening to your podcast. Because I have had a total hysterectomy two years ago, I thought the pelleting would give my body what it no longer can do by itself. I also had very low libido and drive at the time I started them. I am an obese, 67-year-old female and have gained about 20 pounds since the hysterectomy. Would you recommend I stay off the HRT pelleting and try the supplements you mentioned in your podcast? Vitamin D Magnesium full spectrum Zinc picolinate I already have high cholesterol and you mentioned that HRT could lead to even raise it more!? I am currently on phase III of the cell core detox program. I do have chronic stress because I am in pain from a scope of my right knee a few years ago where the surgeon cut away some cartilage and said I need a total knee replacement because of arthritis. I am hoping to correct my nutrition and give my knee the right environment to heal itself. Is this possible? The following is in my HRT pellet: t-pellet 100 mg x 2 estradiol 12.5 mg I also take NP thyroid 90 mg 1am and ½ noon FreeTe 1 capsule daily after 1 ½ months after pellet insertion (I understand this is to draw out the extra testosterone and make it last longer) Iodine 12.5 mg 1 daily DIM one daily ADK 1 daily Thank you for any insight you can give me!
Luke: Hi Dr. Cabral. Sorry for the controversial question but I need some guidance. My wife and I have just found out that she is pregnant after a very long journey in trying to conceive. During this time we have done lots of research and decided not to vaccinate or have any unnecessary medical intervention during the pregnancy and beyond. My wife and I would like to know what else we should consider doing to make sure that our baby has the best start to life. We both take the level 3 daily protocol, have done all major protocols from equilibrium nutrition in preparation to having our baby, we follow your recommended diet, we exercise and have removed all toxins from the home among other things. I believe that this is enough for us to give our baby the best start to life but is there anything else that we should consider? We know that we are up for some push back from friends and family for our decisions but we just want to make sure that we are doing what is best for our baby. Thanks in advance for your guidance with this.
Sally: Hi doctor Cabral, I was wondering if you could explain what Secretory IgA is. After suffering with digestive issues (bloating, gas, etc) for a few years, I did a stool test, and my Secretory IgA came back very low. My doctor tried to explain what it is and what I can do, but I did not really understand it. I've been listening to your podcast for years, therefore I know that you have the amazing ability to explain difficult medical terms and make them more digestible (pun intended!), so I would be very grateful if you could tell me more about it. In particular, what lowers Secretory IgA and what I can do to fix it? Thank you very much! Sally
David: There are multivitamins that have an AM and PM formula, or are taken separately. One reason is to control certain vitamin and mineral ratios. This is based on science that says that there are different nutrients that compete against or inhibit the absorption of other nutrients. Examples I found online were: Iron can have a negative effect on zinc absorption; Folate can mask the symptoms of B12 deficiency; Vitamin A interferes with absorption of vitamin K; and aim to take calcium and magnesium supplements at least 2 hours apart. Is this something that should be considered when evaluating a multivitamin? Does the dosage and formulation of DNS control for nutrients that compete or inhibit absorption of other nutrients? Thanks so much.
Michael: Why would someone get sicker and develop new symptoms by killing pathogens? I have mold toxicity (Chaetomium), some candida and high h. pylori.
