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:
Jovita: Hey Dr. Cabral, I would like to know if you can help me with my stomach problem. I get bloated a lot and burp 24/7 to a point where I can’t sleep at night. My doctor said I had a chronic constipation and bacteria in my gut and I also have heart burn. And I have been having this problem for 2 years and the medicine doesn’t help. Is there anything you have that I can buy to help ?
Jenna: Hey Dr. Cabral! I really appreciate this community you’ve built. It has helped me overcome health complications I didn’t think I’d ever heal and restored my faith in the power of my own body and mind. My question is a little different. I am thinking of going back to school to get my masters in psychology because I love the field, but don’t know what career I want to pursue with it. I was wondering if functional medicine companies like yours had a psychologist on staff working with the team and the clients. I would love to work with people who are determined to improve their health in all areas. I’ve thought maybe sports psychology would align the best with working on both the physical and mental aspects of health, but thought I’d ask if there are any opportunities for psychologists on functional medicine teams. Thanks for all your help!
Gillian: Hey there Dr. Cabral! I want to thank you first for sharing all your wisdom with all of us. You have an amazing heart for people and touch more people than you will ever know. My question is about breast implants. I got silicone implants 15 years ago and after reading and learning about natural and functional medicine, I think I may have made a big health mistake. While I love the way it makes me look and feel, I do not want to sacrifice my health. I’m in my late 30’s and healthy. Should I have them removed for health reasons and if so, are there any heathy alternatives? Thank you so very much!
Nancy: Hello Dr Cabral, I am a 57 yr old female with history of Hashimotos Thyroiditis, sleep apnea and I had a heart attack 5 yrs ago with one stent placed. I am on Pravastatin 20mg and zedia 20mg. I have recently gained about 30lbs over covid period due to lack of exercise. I am vegan and gluten free. My cholesterol has crept back up to 190 and my glucose is at pre-diabetic level (over one point) I have gained most of my weight in my middle region and my cortisol is also elevated. My oxidative stress and inflammation markers are low. I sleep well and I meditate and do breath practices. I can't tolerate stronger statins due to side effects. I know exercise will help and am getting back on the wagon. What else can I do to reverse all of this. Thank you.
Desire: Hi, is heavy metal intoxication related to Autism/ASD? Is there any treatment recommended if they are related to reducing the effects of heavy metals e.g diet, vitamin or natural therapies?
Audrey: Hi Dr. Cabral. I’ve been listening to to show for several years now and it has truly changed my life. Thank you. I’ve searched for this question but have not found it on the archives. Is broken 8-9 hrs of sleep still considered getting a full 8 hrs sleep? My 6 month old still wakes up once a night, so for instance I will get 6 hrs of straight sleep then another 2-3 hrs after I feed her and she goes back down
