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:
Summer: Hi doc! Thank you so much for the time and effort that you put in to serving your fellow man. I’ve learned so much from you and share your podcast every chance I get! Long story short, I learned about natural health a little too late in life. After years of imbalance, infertility, dis-ease, and irreversible surgery, my husband and I are hoping to adopt an infant and I’ve recently learned that it is not our decision whether or not the child is fully vaccinated according to the standard vac schedule. It is the state’s decision until the child is 6 months old when the paperwork has all gone through. So basically I will be forced to take the baby to every ‘well child’ appointment and hand them over to a well meaning, but ignorant hospital employee for all of the neurotoxins mandated by the gov. After learning this I initially decided that I can’t be a party to that. I’ve wrestled with this for months and decided that any poor child in the system would at least be better off with us where we can try to mitigate the damage immediately and give them a healthy full life to the best of our ability. So I’m wondering what is the best way to physically prepare the baby for each visit and how to detox from these unnecessary tox injections? Thanks again! Summer
Summer: Hi Doc! In the case of adoption, since the majority of infants in the system are born addicted to drugs and alcohol, and within hours are bombarded with vacs and antibiotics, what is the best approach to help their poor little bodies find balance and healing for the first time in their young life? Also, if the birth mother has some kind of infection like an STI, would you recommend allowing the use of antibiotics especially in the eyes or can some kind of a modified natural anti-v protocol be used if all parties are in agreement? Thanks! Summer
Even: Is H pylori bad for you if left untreated? I don’t have any symptoms but tested for it on stool test so I don’t want to spend all this money to treat if it doesn’t matter. Thank you!
Kenzie: Hi dr Cabral! I have Gilbert’s syndrome and typically have no symptoms from it. I am a wine sales rep and do love wine so sometimes my job requires to drink a little. I try to limit it but when I do drink I am pretty hungover. How do I support my liver when I do? I’ve heard milk thistle is bad for Gilbert’s
Amy: Thank you for all of work & sharing this information Dr Cabral! My son is 7.5 years old and has suffered from allergy induced asthma for the last 6 years. We thought he was doing much better, then last October he was hospitalized for 3 days due to an asthma attack. Less than 3 months later he ended up with pneumonia and not to mention all the viruses he’s had between. Of course the allergist wants him on Flovent 2 times a day, Albuterol, allergy shots & daily Zyrtec but this just doesn’t feel right. We’ve done a food sensitivity and removed those items including dairy & gluten. We met with a holistic nutritionists that did a stool test & learned he has gut dysbosis & a presence of H . Ployri. He is currently on a supplement regimen to help those issues but still doesn’t seem to be improving. We have an air doctor, water filter, only use natural cleaning products & hygiene products. We eat organic & only local grass fed meat. We have removed all the toxic burdens that we know of and are at a loss of how to help him heal. I appreciate any feedback for next steps. Thank you!
Greg: Hi Dr. Cabral, I love fruit and sometimes I enjoy the crunchiness and convenience of freeze dried fruit. No additives, fruit is the only ingredient. What are your thoughts? How does it compare it to frozen or fresh
Anonymous: I want to first off thank you for all that you do! Providing valuable information for free is very altruistic and appreciated by all of your listeners. I have a few quick questions: -Do you have any recommendations for seasonal allergy support for dogs? My dog gets hot spots for a cluster of weeks 1-3 times a year and I want to be able to help support his gut health/suspected histamine response during those times. -What are your thoughts on the ayurvedic herb, Neem? I am a kapha-pitta (pretty even split) and it was recommended to me by a practitioner and has helped me greatly especially when pitta is aggravated. I was just curious as to your thoughts on it. -What are your thoughts on vegan meat alternatives (for example, Sweet Earth Benevolent Bacon)? Are there any good brands you know of that you would recommend for eating occasionally instead of having the actual processed meat? Sorry if that was too many questions for one submittal, and thank you for your guidance!
