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:
Judy: Do you have any suggestions on how to prevent motion sickness when flying, driving or on a boat? I often get it when flying on a plane and have to take Dramamine and want to get away from taking conventional medicine. Periodically it happens on a car ride which I can prevent by not reading in the car and sitting in the front seat.
Jenett: Hi Dr. Cabral, My daughter has had a red dotted rash around her mouth and below her nose. It appeared around the time she and my son were sick with step and had taken antibiotics. I had to take her off because she got an allergic reaction from the amoxicillian which made her entire body breakout in small dotted red rash so I assumed it was a part of that but it’s been weeks and the rash around her mouth is still there. When I look online, it looks like Candida. Could this be what it is? If so, are there any home remedies to get rid of this? Is there a way to rebuild their gut after the antibiotics? Thank you so much -Jenett
Camilla: Dear Stephen, I was crying through the entire 745/podcast. Happy tears. Because You just explained my dream. And with such ease. I would just love to come to Your clinic. But I live in Denmark. I listened to You on the Melissa Ambrosini show, and I just knew right away that I want You to help me get back on track. So my question is, what would You recommend for me. Like, where do I start? Do I run tests? Do I detox first? How do I find out what my body-type is, so I can start eating accordingly? I really hope that You can help me! I’m kind of desperate. Thank You so much, and please let me know What I need to do/ What info You need/ What to send/ pay.. I will do anything. All My Best, Camilla
Anita: Hi Dr. Cabral. Thanks for your Aussie support, I've waited patiently for this time. You're podcasts are truly brilliant, thank you so much. So I have a question about my daughter. She is 23, lived her first 21 years in Australia, and now has moved to Oslo, Norway. Here are her symptoms. She has had rectal bleeding for two years now. She noticed this does not occur if the stool is very soft and no force is used. She has minimized gluten and dairy consumption. However still does consume these items on rare occasions. She gets recurring bouts of threadworm, even though she is very hygenic. She has great difficulty falling asleep and lives in Norway where lighting conditions vary widely. But she has always had sleeping difficulties, even in Australia, falling asleep around 4-5am, then sleeping till midday. She has had an outbreak of boils for almost 6 months and currently lives in a basement apartment in which mold seems to grow quickly. She does use a dehumidifier. She tries to keep her stress levels in check but is doing a Masters degree and thus they naturally rise. She exercises at least 4 times a week, mostly resistance training, with bits of intervals. She takes a Magnesium supplement called CalmX by Metagenics, which used to help, but no longer has much impact. She also takes fish oil, Vit B (as she is a vegetarian). There are several issues going on, I just don't know where to begin to help her?
Donna: Dear Dr. Cabral, On a recent podcast you mentioned that it wasn't good to eat produce from Mexico. What if it's from Mexico but is USDA certified organic or some produce just has a little green "organic" sticker on it? Is that trust worthy? It seems as though most of our produce at our local Fresh Thyme store is from Mexico. On amazon and in stores I can only find organic cold pressed unrefined sesame oil from Mexico. What do you use and from where? Does Avocado oil need to be organic as well because I haven't found any. Also, is it important that all nuts we eat are organic too and must they say USDA organic? You recommend wild blueberries, but our costco store carries frozen ones that do not say organic.What brand do you use? What kind of cleaner is safe for kitchen sinks, showers / tubs to remove stains & build up.What about shampoos & soaps, laundry detergent, and dryer sheets? Are there specific ingredients to stay away from such as sodium laurel sulfate? What about make-up, nail polish, & polish remover? Thank You so much for sharing all of your knowledge with us!!! D.C.
Chantelle: You're a fabulous human, Dr. Cabral - thank you for helping so many of us be our healthiest self! I don't like going to the dentist because they require you to undergo x-rays at each cleaning. Do you think these frequent x-rays are safe?
Matt: Hey Dr Cabral. I heard about this new product which supposedly helps prevent hair loss. I looked at it and it seems to have high quality ingredients like Ashwagandha, Circumin, Kelp, Biotin, Selenium, etc. Do you think it could actually help prevent hair loss/male balding. Thanks!
Lance: Have you heard of "Chew and Spit"? What does this do to the physiologic and/or hormonal response? Your perspective is greatly appreciated! Thank you for tuning into today's Cabral HouseCall and be sure to check back tomorrow where we answer more of our community’s questions!
