Welcome back to our first HouseCall of the weekend!
I'm looking forward to answering our community's questions on all things wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging so let's get started!
Here are today's questions:
Melanie: Hi Doc, Any clinical pearls on renal artery stenosis? I have been looking for a supplement protocol. All I can find is proteolytic enzymes and chromium to support the arteries. I was hoping you had some herbal remedies to suggest? I am well aware of lifestyle and diet being huge factors. Thanks for all you do for us! I appreciate all you have taught me!
Leilani: Dear Dr Cabral, Thanks again for your great podcast! I did a search and couldn't find anything on glaucoma. My dad is 71 years old and has glaucoma. He had valves inserted to regulate the pressure. He now takes two different kinds of drops and has to do daily eye massages. The drops gives him terrible black circles around his whole eye socket, it makes him look very sick and old. I was just wondering if there is anything you can suggest in general to help glaucoma sufferers. He doesn't take any supplements and doesn't have a particularly healthy diet either. Would vitamin C and/or astaxanthin supplements be of any benefit? Very grateful for your time and assistance, thank you in advance for your advice and suggestions.
Thomas: Hello Dr. Cabral, Thank you for always taking the time to answer our questions. This may seem like a strange question but whenever I take my socks off my left foot is dry but my right foot is always just a bit damp. I am a lefty. I have noticed this for as long as I can remember and was just wondering if there was some type of medical meaning behind this?? Thank you
Dee: Hi Dr Cabral, Could you recommend a good way to get enough Omega 3 on a vegan diet? We eat chia, flax, hemp and berries often, but I wondered if I should also be supplementing it? We do use your all in one powder, your fruit and vegetable blend and gut support daily. I noticed you have omega 3 on your site, but it's fish based. Wondering if there is a good vegan option? Thanks!
Ashley: I recently discovered that I have another cavity, or maybe it is the same cavity, located in between two molar teeth, that has become wider and more serious. I know I need to get more fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, K, so I started to supplement with Wiley's Finest Wild Alaskan Fish Oil, Orange Burst. This supplement has vitamins A and D. I try to eat more organ meat like chicken liver, and fish like sardines. I do not use fluoride products on my teeth. I use OraWellness brand and other natural products on my teeth and I think they are slowly helping a little. I plan to purchase Fermented Skate Liver Oil capsules, which has all the fat soluble vitamins and Blue Ice Royal Blend capsules, which is a mixture of 1/3 butter oil and 2/3 fermented cod liver oil from http://www.codliveroilshop.com/ After doing a little research, I suspect my tooth decay is due to my intestinal problems. I usually have constipation and other health concerns that would be helped if my intestines were cleansed and working at their best. The earliest time I got an appointment at my dentist was early next month (October), so in the mean time, I'm also considering skipping the Organic Acids Test for now and going straight ahead and purchasing your Candida & Bacterial Complete Protocol and Constipation Support. I am only 26 and I do not want to lose any of my teeth. What do you think about the supplements and products that I have been using? What do you think about the supplements that I plan to purchase? What else do you suggest I do to preserve and remineralize my enamel? Thank you for your excellent podcasts!
Rose: Thanks Stephan. I have been listening to your podcasts for a couple months and really enjoy your balanced approach to health concerns. You are not dogmatic. I have a niece that is suffering from eczema and so is her 5 year old daughter. She has tried food eliminating and natural pathetic medicine but it keeps flaring up. She does have a quite a bit of stress in her life but she is getting help with that. We have good natural path doctors locally but I find it is difficult to find a good doctor that will do testing. What tests do you recommend for eczema? Thanks so much. Also, I am a post menopausal women that would like to get optimal health I know that I would like hormone testing but would like advise too as to testing.
Cara: The 2 weeks leading up to my cycle or a couple days for and weeks after a full moon, my heart rate at night is 10 beats higher than normal and my body temperature is up 1 degree. This causes me to wake up feeling like I worked out all night and am exhausted. I can't seem to figure out what is causing this. I am 48, female, 5"2', 112 pounds, love to workout but it's hard when I don't feel like I've slept. I eat a low FODMAP diet, and Paleo. Thanks for any insight
Thank you for tuning and be sure to check back tomorrow as I answer more of our community's questions!
