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:
Heather: Hi, me again! I also had a quick question about the natural flavors listed on the ingredient list for the Daily Fruit and Vegetable powder. What is it? I was under the impression that natural flavors are just another word for artificial flavors but I doubt you would put that in any of your products. Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions!
Amal: Hi Dr Cabral, I've been diagnosed with an inflammatory eye condition called Uveitis in my left eye. Doctors have not looked into what's causing it but I think it is autoimmune. I also seem to have something called lipedema. Everytime I try to detox my body, it will accelerate the inflammation in my eye, causing further damage to the eye. I tried to take iodine and it would help my eye but cause me to rapid fat gain everywhere. I then tried N acetyl cysteine and the same rapid weight gain but it would lower inflammation in the eye and clear my vision. Then I tried chlorella and spirulina and I would feel coolness in my eyes in 10 mins and it would clear my floaters, inflammation and improve vision. However I will gain a lot of body fat within 2 days of taking the chlorella & spirulina. I came across gynostemma herbal tea and I started losing weight within days but my eye would start hurting and I could also feel weakness in my right eye. I'm not sure what to do. I cant lose the weight without hurting my eye and I can't detox my liver or the rest of my body without gaining weight. My hair has become damaged and dry and I have developed a lot of cellulite on my legs and excess fat around my ankles and everywhere else. I am trying to work on gut health Any advice would be helpful.
Alicja: Hi Dr. Cabral, I would love to get your opinion about inducing period with prescription drugs. I lost my periods a while ago, but I'm only 38 so probably too early to be menopausal. 4 years ago I was pregnant and then was breastfeeding my baby for a while. It's been about 2 years since I stopped breastfeeding, but my cycles don't want to return. After having my baby I developed gut issues. Later I also found out I have hypothyroidism and Hashimoto. I've been addressing both. Overall I feel now much better and stronger comparing to where I was a year ago (thanks to moving to a new house and thanks to your protocols. I've done para pro and currently I'm in the muddle of CBO protocol) I should mention that I am underweight (BMI: 16.2) Since I've been feeling better recently, do you think I could now "induce" my period with a medication? Or do you think I should still wait longer until my body decides it's time. I'm not sure if it's good for me to be that long without cycles. I often hear from other women that once first period is induced, next ones come on their own. I tried Vitex in the past but stopped because I didn't feel well taking it. Thank you so much for your answer. I'm forever thankful for all your help.
Paula: Can you do a podcast on adolescent sports medicine or adolescent sports nutrition? Thanks.
Lynn: Hi Dr. Cabral, I’ve enjoyed your podcast for years now, thank you for such great content. Recently I was diagnosed with posterior vitreous detachment by my optometrist. What would you suggest? Thank you so much Lynn
Zak: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have been looking at taking NMN together with Trans Resveratrol however am concerned about any implications these 2 supplements may have on Hashimotos which I have. I have read a pubmed study suggesting that TSH may increase and that NMN is an antagonist to thyroid hormones? I would love to take NMN for all the benefits mentioned in your previous podcast however have reservations. Are you a able to shed some light on the effects NMN may have on the thyroid in particular Hashimotos? Thanks so much for all your insightful material. Zak
