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!
Carla: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have a question about these small (1/16th to 1/8th inch), flat topped, skin coloured, bumps on the back of my hands. I've had them since early spring and I've been to my naturopath about them, but they are persistent and don't seem to be responding to treatment. He said they were a virus of some sort and recommended putting tea tree oil on them. When I first started the tea tree oil they seemed to respond by bringing larger painful ones to the surface (they are not normally painful). But after that they have seemed to stop responding and come and go as they please, sometimes lasting for months. The painful ones are gone and now they are just skin coloured bumps again. They are staying on the backs of my hands, with one or two by the wrist or first joint of finger. I've minimized tea tree oil use as it's made my skin raw and picking them off just makes them grow back. I've spent hours trying to find similar photos online of this condition but have had no luck. I was thinking they could be from weightlifting gloves I wear at the gym, although I stopped wearing them after they started. Any suggestions on treating this would be much appreciated, thank you! Carla
Jen: Hi Dr. Cabral My question is regarding my neck. It seems to go out a lot and I have to go to the Chiropractor on a regular basis. Sometimes its as simple as reaching for something, that seems to put it out. When I asked my Chiropractor, he said that stress can cause the same ones to go out. On my last visit, he found that my Atlas and L-2 were out, which was causing horrible headaches. I really want to do my weight workout but I'm afraid of pulling my neck out of place again from lifting the weights to do bicep curls or fly's. Do you know what might cause this to happen so often and is there any way to strengthen my neck to prevent this from continuing? Also, can you give me any tips on proper stance when doing bicep curls so that I prevent injury? Much appreciate any advise. Thank you Jen
Donna: Thank You Dr. Cabral for all you do to help people live healthy! I listened to Episode 286 on water filters. We have well water a long with a water softener using salt pellets. We do use the counter top Berky for drinking water. Is the water softener & salt pellets a problem and if so, what do you suggest? Do you recommend Berky shower head, Culligan, or Aqua Bliss for well water? Also, we will be going out of state for vacation, what do you recommend for our family for clean water? What about a water filtered bottle and what kind/brand? Thank You, Donna C.
Donna: Dr. Cabral, I am 51 year young lady and a friend strongly suggests I take Jon Lee's ProgesterAll natural balance progesterone cream. She says it prevents cancer, osteoporosis, and balances hormones. My Chiropractor/nutritionist says the product is good but doesn't see the need for me to take it now and I don't know of any symptoms that would show I do or what they would be. He wants me to continue to eat healthy, exercise, and think well. What do you say and are we ideally not suppose to need this at any point in age? Also, are you familiar with the Eat Well, Move Well, Think Well Lifestyle Wellness Corp. certification through James Chestnut? There are not many wellness Drs. in the US with that certification but I was able to take the course through my Drs. (being the only two Drs. in MO) and it's really been helpful. Respectfully, Donna C.
Nikki: Anonymous question: I do a coffee enema 2-3 times per week. Is there a need for any other type of detox? Thanks for the info!
