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: 

Ryan: With regards to D3 supplementation and vitamin K2, how important is it to get K2 if you're supplementing D3? If I'm taking 5000IU of D3 daily, but am not getting K2 from supps or eating organ meats or grass-fed butter etc... do you think that could be an issue? Does taking magnesium and eating a well-rounded diet offset this potential issue? With the food sources of K2 being what they are, surely hardly anyone is getting much K2. What are the work arounds or other factors involved here? Or should I just make sure to get a K2 supp?

Mike: Hi Dr. Cabral how often should someone use a infrared sauna for mold toxicity or heavy metal toxicity? Thank you.

Sara: Hi Dr Cabral! Thank you so much for all your amazing content and giving us the opportunity to learn so much and so deeply about the body and mind!  I am today writing for a friend. I tried finding podcast about this (when looking for health-answers I always first go to your podcast), but without luck. My question is regarding rematoid arthritis and which underlying imbalances to focus on the heal or at least minimize the pain, stiffness and swollen joints?  She is not yet diagnosed, but as I am a nurse, it seems like that's what it is. Never the less it's definite that she has inflammation and a lot of pain and being swollen in the joints and the high pain also seem to come in waves. I've guided her to make changes in the diet and with lifestyle to increase gut health and lower inflammation and she also tried MSN, Glycogen, Collagen, Magnesium to help the joint-health.  But anyway, I would like to know more on how to address and guide her to a more balanced life if this actually is reumatoid arthritis?  Thank you so much for your help and guidance!

Lara: Hi, dr. Cabral, you amazing soul :) I heard of some benefits of using the mushroom ganoderma but I always have to check it up with you, hehe.. you are my go-to on all things health.. so please explain more about it if you can.. I have fibromyalgia, but I’m sure information could also help others..  Thank you so much for everything you do, much love to you, your family and everyone trying to heal.

Carolyn: Hello Dr. Cabral, My son and I were patients of yours a few years back and you were very helpful!!!  I am hoping you can help once again! I just found out I am positive homozygous APOE, and I am terrified, as my mother has dementia. You have mentioned the benefits of Ashwaganda, but I have read where it is not recommend for people with autoimmune issues. (I have Hashimotos, and Sjogrens.) Should I still take it?  Thank you, and God Bless!  Carolyn

Cory: Hi Dr Cabral, my 4 week old is currently being tested for hirschsprung's disease. While we wait for test results and maybe surgery, the surgeon has prescribed 4 bowel irrigation’s a day. It seems excessive and I worry that she’ll lose muscle tone and become dependent on the irrigation to have a bowel movement. Are there natural ways to manage hirschsprung's disease? Thank you.
