2375: Belly Fat, Coffee & H Pylori, Heavy Night Sweats, Niacin, SVT Symptoms, Diet vs. Exercise (HouseCall)

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…


Eve: Hi Dr Cabral. Thanks for answering my question. I have always struggled with belly fat. The rest of me is thin but I have lower belly fat and love handles. No matter what I do I can’t get rid of it. I eat incredibly well, alternate between strength and cardio training daily and fast for approx 16 hours every day. I definitely do not overeat, perhaps sometimes under eat when I am having busy days. My only thought is that it could be hormonal (I’ve just taken out my IUD that I have had in for 6 years) or something to do with stress levels? Any advice you have would be greatly appreciated as I have been trying to find an answer since I was about 10 years old.


Angie: Hi Dr Cabral. I have had HPylori and am healing gastritis due to that. I used to drink one cup of coffee in the morning, but haven’t done that in over two years. I started drinking bio coffee which ingredients are: Instant Arabica coffee powder, non dairy creamer (glucose syrup from tapioca starch and vegetable fat from palm kernel), oligosaccharide (from chicory root) and wheatgrass powder. It’s suppose to be alkaline and it’s the only “coffee” that doesn’t hurt my throat and stomach. I actually feel better throughout the day if I drink it. Ideally, it would be best if I never drank coffee or processed foods, but I am curious to hear your review of the product.


Anonymous: Hi Dr. Cabral, I am a fairly new follower but want to thank you for all that you do. I listen to your podcast every day and enjoy learning about the wide range of topics that you talk about. My question is on behalf of my partner. He is an extremely heavy sweater at night, to the point where I feel like I need to wash the sheets every day. He is 29 years old, vata body type. He is not over weight but is working on implementing less red meat and more vegetables into his diet. He has a pretty active job but does weight work outs 2-3 times a week and runs a few times a week as well. The one thing he does enjoy is beer, and drinks around 3-4 daily. Other then that, he is a pretty healthy guy. I have tried to look for what could cause sweating at night but mostly find information on menopausal women. I was wondering if you had any suggestions for things to look into or tests to run to start trying to figure out the cause of his heavy nighttime sweating. Thank you so much.


Anonymous: Hi Dr. Cabral, I had a question about niacin. Growing up my mom had told me that getting too much niacin, specially as a female, was not good for your health. However, if I take the DNS powder and activated vitamin B complex each day I would be consuming well over the recommended daily intake of niacin. My mom doesn't specifically remember why she thought too much niacin was bad, so I figured I'd ask you. In my research I did find that pregnant women need to be careful with niacin intake, but couldn't find any information on any health risks for non-pregnant individuals. Any insight would be appreciated, thank you.


Stacey: Hello Dr. Cabral You have become a beacon of light & hope to me. I have been suffering for 15 years with extremely strange symptoms. My first symptom was SVT on my daughters 1st BDay my HR was 240 when the ambulance arrived and took about 10 min of baring down to get it under control or they would have to shock me . This continued until my catheter ablation to my heart a year after in 2007 . Soon after new symptoms popped up .. numbness in my chin , left leg , weakness in legs , brain fog and the very worse is and was the sensory overload. I have not been able to go to a movie , family gathering , b day party , any event without alcohol to calm my nervous system down . If I don’t drink ( and it’s shameful & no I’m not an alcoholic) I will actually throw up from the sensory overload and a feeling of what I’d think a seizure feels like comes me . It’s unbearable to say the least . ( p.s. zero family history of this) MS has been ruled out , my Drs have not been able to diagnose me with anything except SVT , Raynauds, MCAS & now POTS / dysautonomia in 2018 . These last 4 years have been my absolute worst ! I’m afraid I’m going to die . I’m now on xanax and plaquniel. Do you think your program can help? I have breast implants since 2006 , hernia mesh and amalgams.


Megan: Hi Stephen I have two questions for you: 1. to what extent does diet outweigh exercise i.e. if I only ate super clean and my exercise regime consisted of a light walk and gently yoga every day, would I lose muscle tone or would I retain light tone? 2. in your opinion what should a typical eating day be like for a vegetarian? Can you please
