Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend!
I’m looking forward to sharing with you some of our community’s questions that have come in over the past few weeks…
Let’s get started!
Stephanie: Hello! My husband and I have listened to your podcast for several years. As a personal trainer, I use "A Man's Guide to Fitness" to train all of my weight loss clients. As a nutritionist and health coach, I now run your Organic Acids Test's, IgG and Metals tests and recommend all of your protocols. I do a lot of research and have spent countless hours and days watching videos and reading articles about the OAT's. I know more about bio-chemistry and the Krebs cycle than I ever thought I would! In fact, I'm downright obsessed with the test. However, when I ran my own test it was determined that all of my nutritional markers were fine except my Vitamin C was low (seems to be the case with everyone on this test) and my Vitamin B5 level was high. Pantothenic acid is not one of the vitamins whose high range indicates a deficiency. My question to you is this, "Would it be possible that my B5 is high because it is literally passing through me without being absorbed at all?" I was off the chart for Candida (101) and my Oxalic/Citric acids were off which I think was off due to a calcium deficiency. I found that PH was definitely acidic and I have begun taking your Cal-Mag and now my PH is back to normal. I eat a lot of spinach (thinking that I was getting calcium) but it turns out a high oxalate food like spinach does not provide much calcium and in fact may contribute to a decrease in my calcium absorption. Would the CBO protocol be appropriate for me to rid myself of the Candida? Furthermore, should I run a metals test to determine whether or not I have a build up of metals (I had my amalgams removed back in the late 90's by a regular dentist) since I understand that Candida can bind to metals in the body? Sorry to be so long winded. Thank you. Ayubowan.
Linda: Hello, I'm interested in coming up with a nutrition plan, and would like to figure out if I have a food intolerance. Your application form is not secure, and so I did not feel comfortable providing that level of personal information online. Please let me know if there is a written form I can pick up to fill out instead, if I can speak with someone on the phone, or, preferably, set up an appointment. Thank you, Linda
Philippa: Hi Dr Cabral. I love your show and since discovering it a couple of weeks ago i have been trying to listen to as many as i can. I have especially enjoyed your shows about Ayurveda and my husband and I have started to implement a lot more Ayurvedic principles into our life. We think that I am a Vata-Pitta (medium height, small wrists, always dry and cold and a tendency to worry a lot) and my husband is a Pitta-Kapha (moderate build, does not do well with hot weather, but very easy-going and can sleep for hours). My question is about food. As i am dominant in Vata i know that my body needs more carbohydrates for fuel and i have found that I do not do well on red meat. However, my husband as a Pitta seems to crave protein and especially red meat. I am not sure what foods to cook now - during the day it is fine as we both have our own breakfasts and eat lunch at work. But at night we eat together at home. Can you recommend any kinds of meals which would work well for both of us? I do not want to end up cooking two meals, but want to make sure we are both nourishing our bodies in the right way. Thank you so much!
Joey: Dr. Cabral, Good morning. First of all thank you for everything you do. I sent you a question on Jan 14. I know you say it takes 3-4 weeks. It’s now been five weeks and I just wanted to know if you received my email. I am attaching my email below. Thank you so much. Joey. Dr. Cabral, I am a 39 year old male that’s an ex athlete that still works out everyday. My diet is really good and have been fasting between 12-16 hours a day for about a two years. The last three years I have been spending time coaching basketball in Eastern Europe and in China(4 months). For the past year, I have been having serious lower throat pain that comes and goes usually lasting for weeks. Also while having this pain I get other symptoms such as blurred vision(especially bad in left eye), fatigue, lightheaded when standing up, dizziness, numbness in hands and feet(like they have falling asleep) and just overall really jittery and anxious. Doctor, I just feel off like everyone is moving around me in fast motion. It’s really frustrated because nobody can seem to figure out what’s wrong with me. Anything you can do would be appreciated.
Marisa: I'm a 34 year old female and for over 10 years I regularly get cystic painful breakouts around my mouth area during ovulation and sometimes just before my period. My period was always regular. I then became pregnant and started breastfeeding and the breakouts disappeared and I got my great complexion back. My baby is now 8 months and I have started to wean her and my breakouts have returned although my period hasn't come back yet. My blood sugar is within the normal range but at the higher end. Could there be a testosterone link? My body type is slim and slender and I've never had to diet, always been slim but I do have a sweet tooth but otherwise my diet is healthy. I also suffer from constipation. Thank you ever so much!
Jeff: Hi Dr. Cabral, A friend of mine had been diagnosed with Marfan Syndrome. His doctor told him I can not lift weights or even move heavy furniture. I was wondering if you have any insight into this condition that I can pass along to him. My concerns are the effects a lifetime of not being able to step into a gym will have on him down the road. Thanks!! -Jeff
