921: The Caffeine Cortisol Connection (Good or Bad?) (TWT)
33:07
At least in the US we tend to look at foods, diets, or supplements as either all good or all bad…
 
However, like most things the truth usually lies somewhere in the middle…
 
And no truer words have ever been spoken when it comes to talking about caffeine...
 
For one person caffeine can be a highly beneficial and positively improve brain cognition and other areas of the human body, while at the same time it has the power to create massive nervous system, hormonal & immune dysfunction in another…
 
This is why on today’s #CabralConcept 921 I want to review the “caffeine cortisol connection” to separate fact from fiction and show you how much may be beneficial and at what time in order to maximize effectiveness without as much downside - Enjoy the show!

920: The At-Home Stress Test that Predicts Disease (MM)
31:23

When I was studying to become a Naturopathic Doctor I took a course that briefly went over the Holmes Rahe Stress Test...

Although it was mentioned just in passing the inventory quiz left a lasting impression on how we get sick and dis-eased...

I now use these questions in some form or another every day in my practice in order to assess how full a person’s Rain Barrel is (before they got sick and currently)...

Tune into today’s #CabraConcept 920 to take this same Stress Test for yourself to see if you score below a 150 - Enjoy the show!

919: APOe Keto, Medical Mystery, Bone Marrow Supplement, Fearful Child, Fruitless Diet (HouseCall)
28:34

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!

Judy: Hi! First off, my deepest gratitude for everything you and your team does! You’ve mentioned this on the show before but I was hoping you could elaborate. I recently found out I’m homozygous for apoe4. I was following a cyclical keto diet for about 2 years before finding out this information. My cholesterol was a high at 253, but my ratios were really good! I’m curious if you think those of us with this allele need to minimize all fats, including monounsaturated sources like olives and avocados, or are you only concerned with saturated? Thank you!

Cole: Hi! I would love to hear your opinion on Kratom and whether or not you think it’s safe to consume regularly. Thank you!

Rob: Hello Dr. Cabral! First, thanks for all that you do! I discovered your podcast last year, and I am hooked. I bought your book a few weeks ago, and I really enjoyed it! I am not sure if this is the correct spot to send questions for your podcast, so if not, I apologize. I am a 40-year-old male for over a decade I have always been dizzy, suffered from anxiety, and am always tired. About eight years ago I was diagnosed with Epstein Bar Virus, and it was pretty bad. Two years ago, I noticed white spots on me and had been diagnosed with Vitiligo. I suffer from heart palpitations, and just this morning went to the ER for chest pains. All testing came back normal, as it did the handful of other times I went to the ER. A couple of issues were noted in my bloodwork this time- low WBC ( 3.3 - this comes back low on most of my bloodwork), elevated bilirubin (always have this), High MCHC (35.8), and low Monocyte Absolute (0.2). I can not remember a time where I felt good. I exercise, eat well, and have been to numerous doctors and specialists who cannot find anything wrong. I am hoping that maybe you may be able to see something that they don't. Any help is appreciated!

Sandy:  Dear Dr. Cabral, I was diagnosed with a high risk HPV after my last pap smear, and I really want to help my body expel the virus ASAP. Could you maybe give me some tips about the best way to do this? Thanks so much for your answer - and everything else you do! I always start my day with your podcast, and I know if anyone could help me, it’s you! Sandy

Jay: Dr Cabral, what do you think about supplementing with Bone Marrow as an alternative to Bone Broth. I would think that ancient peoples would've eaten bone marrow and so I'm wondering if you have any thoughts. I found a bone marrow supplement that comes from New Zealand raised cows.

Jamie:  Hello!! I have a question about my 10 year old son. He has had some bouts of anxiety over the course of the last two years. Nothing super dramatic but somewhat concerning when it occurs. A week or two of being fearful of eating for fear of choking, fears about something bad happening to him or his loved ones, fears of getting in trouble at school although he's a great student. A friend of mine mentioned the possibility of pandas syndrome but after reading about it he doesn't have most of the common symptoms (OCD and tics) but I can see where some of his fears overlap with common pandas fears. What would you suggest as a starting point for testing? Some say "all kids go through being fearful" but I can't help but wonder if there's more to this story? Is there something in particular you recommend as a starting point for young patients who struggle with anxiety? Thanks for your help!

Mary: Hi there! My name is Mary, I'm 21 years old and have been listening to the podcast for a while now. Ever since I was diagnosed with Chronic Lyme last year, I have been very interested in functional medicine and helping myself to feel better this way. I was on antibiotics for a while and now take valtrex twice a day along with many other supplements including activated charcoal, probiotics, vitamin c, cod liver oil, and a stamina blend. My doctor also has me on a diet of no dairy, no gluten, no fruit and no sugar. No dairy, gluten and sugar has been easier to give up but the natural sugars/ fruit has been much harder. I was wondering if this is normal to have this diet? Also I am almost equal in all ayervaydic doshas and want to help my diet to reflect that, how can I cater to all doshas while following this "lyme" diet? Thank you for all of your help, I hope to help people as well as you do one day!

918: SARMs, 10-Undecenoic Acid, Swedish Doctor, Repeat Question, Organic Milk Allergy (HouseCall)
29:57

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:

Coty:  Hi Dr. Cabral, your Podcast have quite literally been a life changer for me. I wanted to know your take on sarms and weight training. Their inital creation was for medical issues such as bone loss, mucsle dystrophy amongst other things. But applied to healthy diet coupled with 3-4 days a week in the gym, at very low dosages they been shown to have intense muscle mass gain and retention, increased endurance, and fast recovery/joint health. Sorry for such a drawn out question but I am interested to hear your unique insite on the subject. Thank you :)

Diana: I love your show. I just found it a few weeks ago and have been catching up on older episodes, but it’s certainly not something I can do in a weekend. I just finished listening to a different podcast series on candida, which shall remain nameless because I have major issues with how the alternative medicine professional who made it represents all traditional medicine professionals as quacks. In this podcast, the person stated that ALL antifungal medications (they never said whether herbal supplements were included in this term) cause candida to switch from a yeast to a fungus, which is the harmful opportunistic form. The only way to combat fungal candida, according to them, is to take undecylenic acid (specifically 10-undecenoic acid rather than the salt form calcium undecylenate) to encourage candida to revert to its yeast form. All other fatty acids, including monolaurin, are in some ways antagonistic to candida and will force it into its fungal state. I’ve also read conflicting opinions about whether candida can acclimate to herbal antifungals or not. Some say herbs merely discourage candida rather than killing it so there’s no possibility for adaptation; others say candida can get used to herbs and will form a resistance against them so it’s necessary to cycle the supplements. I’d like to hear your thoughts on this. Obviously you believe in the herbal approach and also include undecylenic acid in your protocol (I think I’ve listened to the episode where you explain your protocol at least 4 times already). It’s been difficult to find reliable information explaining HOW herbal antifungals work and even harder to find an explanation about undecylenic acid. Thanks for everything you do, and if I can get through the day without having to type “undecylenic acid” again I’ll be very happy.

Anton: Hello! I am really interested in alternative medicine, I live in Sweden and here we don't have any big titles in functional medicine. Everything that isn't conventional medicine is "alternative" and the only thing that is kind of accepted the non-conventinal way is chiropractic,massage and TCM. So my question will be; My dream is to be an ND (or something similar) and open a clinic like yours and help people in the alternative medicine way. I feel I little lost how to make it here in Sweden, Is the only option to move to Canada or US to get the ND degree, and start my clinic there? Thanks for all the valuable information, I use you as my Life-coach, you are my idol!

Em: Hi Dr. Cabral, I suddenly have really bad allergies. Is there a cure for this? Don't want to rely on allergy medicine forever. Thanks!

Judy: Is there a natural way to prevent motion sickness when in a car or plane? Also what are things I can do or take once I have the symptoms such as nausea, dizziness or headaches?

Angela: Dear Dr. Cabral, My 9 month old has developed flushed red cheeks over the last two weeks. They have began to get a little scaly and very dry. The Dr said it was eczema and I am so upset and lost as to how it happened as I follow most good health principles. For example: - he was born vaginally, naturally with no drugs - We allowed the vernix to sit for a week - whole plant foods were introduced at 6 months - We eat almost 100% organic produce - We eat limited amounts of pasture raised, organic meats and wild caught fish like sardines and salmon. - We drink spring water - We use limited soap, only a little organic body wash every few days. - We give him Epsom salt baths once a week - The house is cleaned chemical free with vinegar etc - Clothes are washed with soap nuts and vinegar - we give him nude time in the sun on the grass each day to help his vitamin d levels I am beyond frustrated as I feel like I am doing everything by the book and yet he has still gotten eczema. The things that I think may have contributed to this are: - He was mixed fed from about 2 weeks old because he kept losing weight when I exclusively breast fed (I have insufficient glandular tissue) and I was able to mix feed between breast milk and organic cows milk formula for only 6 months. Now he gets all his milk from organic cows milk formula. - I make home-made milk kefir and he has some most days. I was giving it to him for a probiotic but am not sure if this created the problem. I have since stopped feeding it to him but there has no change in his skin as yet. I was hoping you could give your very valued opinion on what I could do to help my little boy. Thank you so much for taking the time to read! I know it was a lot of information but I thought this might help you to get a better understanding of the situation. And thank you for your fantastic podcast I have learn so much from it and it inspires me daily to make better decisions for the health of my family. Regards, Angela

917: Top 8 Unhealthiest Meals, Best EMF Meter, Glutathione Boost (FR)
43:31

One of the best parts about my work is that I get sent "insane health articles" everyday where people want to see what my take (or reaction ; ) would be to them...

One of those articles was entitled, "The 8 Unhealthiest Meals in America," and I have to say that the headline lived up to the hype!

Besides sharing those 8 meals with you, I also want to review what I consider to be the best everyday EMF Meter for your home and office - I now consider it an essential health tool for everyone to own (or borrow)...

Plus, on today's show I want to detail all the healing benefits of the "master antioxidant" that each one of us produces naturally when our body contains the proper vitamins & minerals ...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 917 for all the details - Enjoy the show!

916: How to Create Split Body Part Training Routines (TT)
25:24

For most people I'm an advocate of full-body workouts done 2-3x per week...

This will give you the metabolic resistance training work that your body requires to boost metabolism, balance hormones, adapt to stress, increase endorphins - while at the same time not burning out your nervous system...

But, for a certain percentage of the population there is a time and a place for split body part training routines that can amplify your results...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 916 for all the details on how to create split body part training routines - Enjoy the show!

915: Lose Weight with Ease by Balancing These Hormones (WW)
31:20

If your goal is to transform your body and lose weight, you absolutely must get these hormones under control...

Without balancing your hormones, you simply won't be able to process carbohydrates, stress, and toxins, or eliminate fat the way your body was intended to...

This means that simply exercising more and eating less will no longer work for you if your hormones are "out of whack"...

That's why on today's #CabralConcept 915 I want to share with you which hormones (and why) you must balance in order to lose weight with ease - Enjoy the show!

913: The 9 Time-Tested Ways to Boost Your Mood (MM)
29:25

I used to try to maintain a happy and "zen" mood 100% of the time until I realized that not only is that goal not possible, it's really not that healthy...

So although I now believe it's best to allow yourself to experience every emotion in life, it's also equally as important to be able to pull yourself out of a low mood quickly -

Because if you don't, you risk affecting every other area of your life with potentially long-lasting repercussions...

That's why on today's #CabralConcept 913 I want to share with you the 9 time-tested way to boost your mood whenever you may need it (choose the 1 or 2 thatstep work best for you) - Enjoy the show!

912: Intestinal Issues, Sick for 5 Years, Infant Supplements, Non-Toxic Furniture, Contact Lens Solution, Maintenance Diet, Parasite Test, Alternating Arthritis (HouseCall)
25:34

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!

Janine: Dear (team) Stephen, First if all i would like to dat that i absolutely love your podcast, very inspiring!! I have a question about the 21 Detox: I live in the Netherlands, So it is not possible for me to order the ‘all nutricion proteinpowder’. What can I choose instead of the poeder to make my morning shake with? (So I get the protein en vitamins that are in the poeder). Thank you in regard for answering. With kind regards, Janine van wijck

Deanna: Hi there, I’ve been dealing with intestinal issues since 2010. I eat relatively healthy, drink lots of water and exercise. I’ve tried diets/pills but it never seems to be the answer to my problems. I drink a herbal tea every night in order to have a bowel movement in the morning. I don’t have extreme symptoms, I have occasional gas and bloating but I am always constipated and usually very irritatable. I feel I may have a bacterial overgrowth. I’d like to finally get to the bottom of this and heal my gut, balance my gut and get to living a life that does not revolve around my gut issues. Could you please help me with this. I am willing to do whatever it takes. Thank you. Deanna Doherty 

Linda: Your site was recommended (from friends) that got their health improved over three months. I have been sick for over 5 years double over with stomach and intestinal pain, bowels vary from diarrhea, severe gas, upper reflex, constipation, bleching, my rectum is always burning. I have many test and the results were negative, I was told to take nexium 2x a day for the rest of my life, I am not on any regular medication due to the high cost. I took myself off of the stomach pills because there is little results, I just stopped Gabepentin, migraine medication. I suffer with asthma. I am so frustrated and with no medical insurance I don’t know were to find help. The last 5 years I have noticed my tigger foods any thing in onion family, garlic, black pepper, sugar, nutmeg are a few that give me extreme pain. My question is how can I narrow my search to what will help, I started a program in September protein shakes and have lost over 50 pounds but I am still very over weight. I also have autoimmune disease since 1995. Thank you Linda 

Cara:  Hi Dr. Cabral! I give my 2 1/2 year old 1/4 scoop of your DNC in her morning smoothie, 1/4 teaspoon of your DFV plus I was giving her Klaire Lab Infant probiotic still but I just ran out. Not sure if that was the best for her infant to 2 years, but it's what had been recommended to me. Can I give her a portion of your Daily Probiotic at this point in time? As far as boosting immune system before traveling via airplanes I always would give her elderberry, extra probiotic and I'd sprinkle camucamu on top of that concoction. Is Camucamu still a good choice or could I give her a portion of the Full Spectrum Vitamin C? She is about 23 pounds. Thank you for all you do!!

Cara:  Hi Dr. Cabral! I am almost through your Rain Barrel Effect book - it is absolutely incredible and very practical for everyone as a foundation. I'm curious about your take on furniture - couches and beds without flame retardants, they are hard to find. We got ourselves an Intellibed when I was pregnant because it doesn't have flame retardants - they use silica thread to serve that purpose. We got my daughter a Naturpedic mattress. We got a couch at a boutique place where it was refurbished and no chemicals. Just thought I'd check in and see your mattress / pillow recommendations. I know you gave a great bamboo sheet recommendation. In gratitude!! Thank you for all you do!!

Donna:  Greetings Dr. Cabral, I have three options of daily contact lenses I'm looking at and would love your advice on the following;1. Acuvue Moist contacts in a solution of 58% H2O in buffered saline with povidone. 2. Bio True contacts in a solution of 78% water immersed in a solution of borate buffered saline. 3. Aqua Comfort Plus in a solution of 31% nelfilcon A, 69% water, in buffered saline containing PEG and HPMC. The saline may contain up to 0.05% Poloxamer. Also, are contacts safe to wear out in the sun or does the sunshine effect the material of the contacts like heat does to plastic bottles? Thank You for sharing all of your knowledge, experience, and advice on so many topics relating to health and nutrition. Respectfully, Donna 

Danelle:  Hi Dr. Cabral, I listen to a ton of podcasts and yours is my favorite. I'd love to know what kind of diet you follow. Maybe you could tell us what you normally eat in a day? Much gratitude to you, Danelle

Zhang: Greeting Dr Cabral. I have a question about the parasite test you use. I've heard from another functional medicine practitioner (Evan Brand) that the GI-Map genetic based stool test is the best stool test on the market. I am wondering why you feel Biohealth's is superior to GI Map's stool test? Thank-you

Ann Marie: Hi there! New listener, my daughter turned me onto you and so happy to have found you. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us. I'm a 67 year old woman, my question is how do you know if you have arthritis? I have had pain for about 6 months that started in the hip, then moved to shoulder and now back. It seems the pain is moving around my body. At its worst, it is at a 8/10. I have been taking Ibuprofen for pain but obviously don't want to take that everyday. What can I do? I know I can clean up my diet a bit so what should I absolutely stay away from? All the best and thank you so much!

911: Right Rib Pain, 1:1 Support, Non-Hormonal Contraceptives, Explosive Lifts, Adaptogen Directions, Plant Protein, Knee Pain (HouseCall)
32:02

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:

Sean: Hi Dr. CabralI’ve been listening to your podcasts for the last few months and I’m really loving them! I have a question for a friend of mine that’s dealing with an issue. For the past 5 years she has been experiencing a sharp pain in her right side (just below ribs) and she’s gone to a general practitioner several times to get help. They’ve done ultrasounds and X-rays and haven’t found anything that would be causing the pain. I thought I’d reach out to you on her behalf so she can figure out the issue and hopefully overcome it! Thanks! Sean 

Jennifer: Hi thereI have two questions. 1.  Is the Daily Protocol Powder appropriate for nursing mother's to take, even though the green powder contains spirulina? I am taking an IV of antibiotics during my delivery and would like to get back on a gut healing / vitamin rich protocol as soon as possible. 2.  I suspect that my mother-in-law may have candida overgrowth and she is interested in testing with Dr. Cabral. Is it better to set up a consultation and go through the 3-month program with Dr. C or a health coach than independently order the lab? I know that she will benefit from having a tailored program with 1:1 support, and think that applying for the consulting package is better. Thank you! Jennifer 

Kim: Hi Dr. Cabral, thanks for the show, love your podcast! I have 2 questions: 1) which non-hormonal contraceptives can you recommend? except condoms. what do you think about the copper spiral? 2) Is Stevia ok? Thanks a lot and best regards from Germany, Kim 

Lorenzo: Hello Dr Cabral! I am 32 and have gone through many fitness transitions over the last 15 years from distance running to power lifting to couch potato then crossfit. I’ve been listening to you for over a year and have moved to your recommendations of a full body routine 2-3 times a week and have been feeling better than ever. I would like to start incorporating more explosive lifts, just because I enjoy them. How would you include kettlebell and barbell clean and jerks and snatches in your full body routine? 

Chris: Hey Doctor Cabral, my question is about adaptogens. About a week ago I started taking adapt, 2 with breakfast and 2 with dinner, to help with my healing from adrenal fatigue and balance cortisol levels. A week before that I finally was able to get really good sleep consistently, finally and be able to sleep the entire night without being woken. I figured adding hpa adapt to my regimen would give me that last kick to help calm my body. At first I felt really calmed down from it almost too calm, but it felt better than being too high energy. Cut to a week later and now my body although it doesn't feel anxious energy, it feels a lot of energy being so that I cannot fall asleep at all at night, no matter how much melatonin I take my body literally won't shut down. I'm curious as to why that is, I know that adaptogens are supposed to adapt to stress but going from too calm to too wired seems weird. I will also mention that I am a 26 year old pitta and I've tried taking a b complex prior but that makes me very jittery. Thanks! 

Valerie:  Hello Dr. Cabral! Really enjoy your Podcasts and I look forward to them everyday. I switched to a Whole Foods Plant Based (WFPBD) in early March and I feel amazing! I’ve read that a women should be getting about 48g of protein per day. I try and have three 1/2 cup servings of legumes a day. I wanted to add more throughout the day. My job doesn’t allow me to sit down and have a meal so, I bring my food in small mason jars. I usually try and have a main dish ( in a hot flask) and two different kinds of vegetables in my mason jars as well as fruit. I saw a Holistic Nutritionist and she said as a WFPBD is incomplete protein, I can have as much as I want. Today I listed to a YouTube video, by Dr McDougall and he said no more than a 1 cup serving a day, as to much protein leads to calcium loss, even if your on a WFPBD. Dr. Gregor says only 3 servings a day and he states that the incomplete protein statement is invalid, as there have been no concrete studies done to prove this. I find it confusing and a lot of conflicting information. What is your views on this? How much protein should you be getting, when on a WFPBD?

Mea:  Hi Dr Cabral, I have intermittent knee pain, but my DO cannot find anything structurally wrong with my knees. This is making me think it may be an inflammation issue. After 1.5 years of this, I am ready to cut the dairy, gluten, sugar, soy, corn out of my diet but if was wondering if you have any additional recommendations. I am 30, female, no history of injuries, and my work out routine has not changed. I eat mostly whole foods aside from milk in coffee (could coffee also be part of this?). Also still battling acne since my teens. Your podcast is wonderful, thank you so much for all that you do.

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!

909: The Answer to How Often You Should Be Exercising (TT)
32:36

When it comes to exercise you essentially have 3 camps:

1. There are those people that love to exercise - it boost their spirits and they couldn't imagine living without it...

2. Then you have the people that exercise, but only because they need to to stay in shape, or because they know it's healthy for them...

3. And then there's the last group that has no interest in exercising even though they know (deep down ; ) it would help them transform their body and get healthy...

Well, the good news is that no matter what group you fall into there's actually some compelling research that can provide you with the bare minimum that you really need to be doing, as well as the maximum you should do...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 909 to discover the science how often you should be exercising - Enjoy the show!

908: Instead of Counting Macros Focus on This (WW)
31:46
I consider it a great privilege to get asked to answer hundreds of questions a day and luckily I have an amazing team to help our community...
 
Also, having the ability to see what people care about the most allows me an endless stream of podcast and article topics...
 
One of which that has been popular lately seems to revolve around how many grams of carbohydrates, protein, and fat you should consume per day...
 
And while I’ve created extremely precise diet plans like this for athletes, figure competitors, and celebrities, for the everyday living it’s simply not worth your time (or effort)...
 
The reason I say that is because you can get 90%+ of those same results without all the weighing, measuring, and stress...
 
That’s why on today’s #CabralConcept 908 I want to share with you the simple meal planning template I use in my Functional Medicine practice to help people reach their wellness and body transformation goals (healthily) - Enjoy the show!

With every mistake I make I seem to begin to understand deeper truths in life...

One of those truths occurred to me some time ago now, but I've never forgotten the lesson...

It has to do with assuming I can get more out of life than I am willing to put in...

It just may be one of the most important things I've ever learned and I wanted to share with you an example I've seen play out over and over again in my personal and professional life...

905: Altitude Sickness, Candida Glabrata, Male Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, Thinning Hair, Cancer & Thyroid, Higher Education, Thinning Skin (HouseCall)
26:02

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!

Ashley: First off thanks for all of the amazing podcasts, I’m fairly new to them but you’re the only podcast I listen to on a regular basis because the information is so applicable to not only my life but the lives of people around me! Quick question, I’m from Indiana and recently went on a snowboarding trip to Keystone, CO. The second day I noticed a headache that Dr. Google led me to believe was a tension headache and my resting heart rate was in the hundreds, I believe I was experiencing issues with the altitude and it seemed to get worse until we boarded the plane to head home. I believe my Indiana lungs / heart couldn’t handle the elevation. I don’t plan on giving up traveling to these high elevations, is there any way to prepare my body for another high altitude trip? Normal resting HR in the 60’s, drink recommend fl. oz. of water per day if not more, hot yoga recently started, lift 3x a week, no caffeine drinks ever...much room for improvement though! Thanks for everything! :)

Merrin: Hi, I have been battling a mild candida glabrata vaginal infection for 12 months. I've tried the candida diet and boric acid but nothing has worked. I'm about to start a 5 week course of amphotericin cream and am wondering if you have experience in helping women specifically with candida glabrata (non-albicans)? I'm in Australia, so do you do skype consults and how do I access any necessary supplements? BTW - I love your podcasts!

Don: DR. CabralFor the last 7 to 8 years I’ve been dealing with what my Urologists calls pelvic floor dysfunction. Meaning when I eat certain foods it causes my bladder to spasm which pushes on my pelvic floor tightening the muscles, making me feel like I need to use the bathroom more often. The worst time for this is of course at night. Often this can be severe enough to cause some burning or stinging at the end of my penis. I first noticed this after eating sweet fruits like pineapple, mangos, spotted bananas, and citrus fruits especially lemons. But the past couple years it has progressed to foods like sweet potatoes, cooked carrots and occasionally squash. My urologist said the only thing that I can do is eliminate the trigger foods, but the list keeps getting longer. Also I’ve noticed stress and any type of single leg exercises (like lunges) can aggravate this issue as well. Things I’ve have tried; deep breathing, meditation, kegels, an anti-anxiety medication, and yoga, none of which seemed to help. Is this a pelvic floor issue; meaning my pelvic floor needs to be stretched or strengthened? Or do you think it is something internal going on that I need to get taken care of? I want to make sure I am making good choices financially to get this handled, but I’m not sure if I should run one of your lab tests first or just go straight to the Urinary Protocol, or maybe it is something else like Candida Overgrowth. P.S. Love the show, I originally heard you on Renegade radio with Jason Ferruggia. I’m so glad I found you. Thanks, Don

Emily: Hi Dr. Cabral, I'm a 26 years old female experiencing thinning of hair and hair loss. I have a section that is becoming bald. I have been on birth control pills for 10 years. No family history of hair loss. Relatively healthy. Not stressed out. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help

Gail: Hi Dr Cabral, Love your podcasts, they have given me so much inspiration to get well.Ten years ago I had breast cancer.Lumpectomy,6months of chemotherapy,12 weeks radiation,steroids etc followed by 5 years of follow up meds,etc. My thyroid went crazy, been on thyroxine ever since.I would appreciate your advise on a place to start on my way back to health. Cheers Gail

Celeste: Hello Dr. Cabral, Much like you, my introduction to natural healing and functional medicine began after I had an ailment that medicine couldn't solve. The healing I saw my body do for itself was so life changing that I decided to change my entire college path to try and leverage schooling to educate others about our body's natural ability to heal itself. I am about to graduate from college with a basic Health Science degree. I was just wondering what advice you had on my next steps? I want to go to graduate school eventually. I have been going back and forth between some type of Nutrition degree, PT school, or....? I am at a loss for where to go. My ideal job would be a health coach or something along those lines. Do you have any recommendations for a graduate program or certificate program I can begin to look into for the upcoming few years? Thank you!

Carla: Hi Dr. Cabral, Is there a way to naturally restore thinning skin? I'm 36 and was treating what I think are flat warts on the back of my hands with tea tree oil, and while it hasn't seemed to do much for the warts it's significantly thinned my skin. It looks kind of like smooth wrinkled tissue paper and gets dry very easily and sore if I wash my hands a lot. I work with my hands which doesn't help, but I've been putting sesame, castor and coconut oils on at night and whenever I can, but they haven't really done much. Is there anything else I can do? Thanks very much! Carla

Thank you for tuning into this weekend’s Cabral HouseCalls and be sure to check back tomorrow for our Mindset & Motivation Monday show to get your week started off right!

904: Gluten-Free Greens, Thyroid & Pregnancy, Smoothie Bloat, Gluten-Free Options, Adrenal Adaptogens, Birth Control Acne, Cancer & Hormones (HouseCall)
28:58

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:

Kara: Hi Dr. Cabral, I purchased the greens for the time being assuming it was gluten free (I have celiac's) like your Equilibrium greens. After a few uses I was reading the label more closely and there is no gluten free certified mark on the container. I have stopped use but before I give the product away I wanted to get your opinion if you think greens is safe. Some websites said it was gluten free while others had no mention of it being gluten free or not. I know contamination can come from incorrect timing of harvesting wheat and barley grass.

Sophia:  Hi Dr. Cabral/team, You were recommended to me as a good resource for potentially getting a second opinion on some medical issues I am having. I am a 25 yo pregnant female. The back story is I have always had hypothyroid symptoms but normal labs by standard western medicine guidelines (tsh) in August of 2017 I decided to see a naturopath who tested my thyroid antibodies and also found a large nodule on the left side of my thyroid. My antibody results were elevated indicative of hashimotos which runs in my family. The naturopath suggested I see an endocrinologist for evaluation of my nodule. I had an ultrasound done this January which was abnormal and suspicious of malignancy. I had an FNA to follow which again came back with abnormal but inconclusive results. My sample was sent for genetic pathology screening which came back with a BRAFV600E mutation 95% positive for malignancy. It is being recommended I have a complete thyroidectomy once the baby is born. I want to do what is best but something doesn’t sit right with me about taking my whole thyroid out. I am trying to educate myself as much as possible before October when I make my final decision. I’m mostly concerned about the impact not having a thyroid will have on my overall health and if I do need to have it removed what can I do to try and counter negative effects. I’m hoping for a second opinion of a complete thyroidectomy sounds reasonable in my case. Thank you!!

Sarah: Hi! I came across Stephen Cabral’s podcasts a month ago and I’ve been watching everyday ever since :) Just wanted to let you guys know that they’ve been so so so helpful and I wish I had found them earlier.. anyways thank you for doing what you’re doing and here’s my question: Why do I get so bloated whenever I take my morning smoothie breakfast? Here’s usually what’s in my smoothie: frozen berries (sometimes frozen bananas) + 2 tablespoon pea protein + quarter avocado OR coconut milk + 1 pc dates/fig + kale + sprinkle of cinnamon powder and toppings are a mixture of chia seeds + activated nuts and seeds + goji berries/mulberries, unsweetened coconut flakes + buckwheat + occasional sprinkle of cacao nibs. I’m also on a paleo diet (8 months now) and I take digestive enzymes, gut repair supplement, probiotics and aloe vera juice to heal my gut. Initially when I first started having the breakfast smoothie I felt good but I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve been taking the breakfast smoothie too often that my body started to develop some kind of intolerances towards it? Thank you!! Sarah

Ryan:  I recently took the Food Sensitivity Test and tested high for Dairy, Wheat Gluten, Eggs, Bakers & Brewers Yeast, and Alomonds. So I have a few questions: (1) I'm finding very hard to find foods that don't contain all of these, especially snacks, as most of the GF items I find are made with Almonds. Any suggestions on what i can eat or where i can find a list of good choices? There are only so many fruits and vegetables I can eat before I want to rip openn a bag of potato chips and eat the whole thing. (2) Is Gluten Free the same as Yeast Free? If not, please explain the difference and how to go about reading labels, what to look for, and suggestions on what to eat (see #1) (3) How do you calcualte the # of calories you should eat per day; AND; how do you calcualte the % ratio of Macros. I know you aren't supposed to self diagnose your bodytype, but I think I am an Endomorph / Mesomorph currently weighing 205. I'd like to get down to 195-200. I do intermitent fasting (16/8 protocol); my first meal is at 12:00 and I have the Daily Nutritional Support shake, next meal around 2:30-3:00, and dinner around 7:30. There are so many caluclations out there on the 'average' male. Can you help in explaining the right way to calcualte calories and % breakdown of MACROS (Protein / Fat / Carbs) Why do you need to calculate your macros? Unless you have a rigid fitness goal there’s no need to be so rigid. Check out all my previous prodcasts on how to make your plate 50-75% vegetables. Starch for weight gain.

Chris: Hey Doctor Cabral! After finally healing my gut and now that I'm able to tolerate herbs such as ashwagandha which used to give me brain fog and anxiety, now I have no side affects and notice all the benefits finally! I am taking the hpa to help give me that extra boost to healing my adrenal fatigue and balance cortisol. My question is, I've heard that you should cycle adaptogens in order to prevent your body from getting used to it. With cycles such as 8 weeks on 4 weeks off. Any truth to this? If so should you cycle different adaptogens in the mean time? So far the herbs seem like there doing wonders for my body I just don't want to over do it and it lose it's affects. Thanks!

Lee:  Hello Dr. Cabral, First of all, I just want to thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with the world. I find your story and what you do for others so inspiring. I am very grateful for your podcast! My question is related to hormones and cystic acne. I am almost 40 years old, not currently on birth control but recently had a situation in which I had to take the Plan B contraceptive. I really didn't want to do this, knowing how much this could mess with my hormones, etc but felt this was the best case scenario considering the alternative. This was about six weeks ago and for the past month I have been battling non-stop cystic acne on my chin and even a bit of weight gain/overall bloating & puffiness. I do have a history of cystic acne ( especially when I was on the pill years ago) but have cleared it for some time. I currently take probiotics, use natural skin care products and eat relatively clean. Is there anything I can do to reset my hormones and get back to normal? I'm just not sure where to start. Thank you in advance for your advice! All the best, Lee

Kay Dee: Dear Doc, I have tried most everything and since my terminal diagnosis 7 years ago, and my refusal to accept modern medicine, I have been cancer clear and healed a LOT, BU.Y I am still confused and working hard to heal what is left. Due to an emergency operation to remove a very large rumour that was my ovary, I have had a reactive m sensitive body with early menopause. Only one ovary, yet my body seemed shocked and I have had hormonal and food and weight prob,ems since, after a lifetime of normal body weight. The only way it goes is if my diet is extremely basic. I also have to take some oestrogen and progesterone . I did have a functional medicine consultation and. Some tests, in which I was found to have lower levels than a menopausal woman, this was two years ago. I still get some hot flushes at night, but what was once life destroying symptoms , I have managed to get down to annoying and sleep interfering symptoms. I will eat plain veggies and some fish and a little fruit and maybe arrowroot and coconut flour and will improve, but if I have rice or any beans I start to get fatter, and swollen, also my mood takes a tumble. I did have signs of mould in our last house, and we moved out of concern for its effects. Sometimes my inflammation seems to be irrational, I felt joint pain at the sites of old injuries, I hurt my toe badly 3 years ago and the joint never fully healed it seems. I have a LOT of constipation and nothing I eat seems to help unless I take herbal colon formulas. I do also sometimes get mild palpitations at night, and wake hot, and have to wait for it to pass. Then it appears randomly, I will sleep through the night! My libido has suffered and I have had incredible downs at points. Also my hair is not as thick as it was and I have had some hair loss, but at the moment it’s growing well, that seems up and down too. They did take my appendix out as well as the ovary, even though I asked them to touch nothing else, and I do wonder if this has affected me adversely. I know if I don’t resolve these final issues, they could mount and make me sick again. So I reach out to you, because your extensive knowledge and gifted experience I have never done into contact with before. I believe full health is possible, not matter what your previous challenges and when I look back I wonder if, like many women , I have always had hornaonal issues? PMT, water retention, mood difficulties , the in later life the pill, the morning after pill etc. The cancer I had was pseudomyoxma peritonei, supposedly incurable, but I have been totally free of it just a few months after my diagnosis 7 years ago. This cancer supposedly starts in the appendix and travels to the ovary. I thank you in advance from the bottom of my heart, because all I have done and learned has bought me a long way, but I need some help on these last confusing difficulties .... Love and wishes Kay Dee PS. I listen to a LOT of podcasts and read a LOT, your podcast is exemplary. 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!

899: Top Psychologist Explains the Purpose & Meaning of Life (MM)
27:28

I used to ask myself all the time what's the whole point to what seems to be a mundane day-to-day existence...

I simply had no idea what I was supposed to be doing and I had little idea what the point of it would be anyway...

But then I started to read more and educate myself on ancient philosophies, as well as modern day clinical psychology...

I began to realize not only does our existence not lack meaning, but on the contrary we have so much to live for!

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 899 where I share with you one of my favorite clinical psychologist's viewpoints on the purpose and meaning of life - Enjoy the show!

898: Shake Consistency, Abdominal Discomfort, Dissolve Lipomas, Keratosis Pilaris (HouseCall)
26:56

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!

Anne: Dr Cabral, I just started into a new case of daily nutritional support. I buy the 6 and get 2 free amount every several months. I started with a 2 week detox and have continued for the last 14 months with a shake for breakfast, plant based lunch and reasonable dinner. I have lost 40 pounds and went from 160 to 120 #. So thrilled with my new me! Thank you! I just am disappointed again with the flavor change of the daily nutritional support. I got a batch a half year ago or so that was tasteless and I found out the stevia was left out. My next batch was back to great taste. Now this new batch is pretty tasteless again and wondering what the difference is now? I’m mostly disappointed with the inconsistency of the product...it is very expensive for me to buy and I’m hesitant to keep purchasing it if the flavor keeps changing.

Madison:  Hi there! I heard of your podcast via Melissa Ambrosini, and it came at the *perfect* time. After running a stool sample + blood work with my local chiro and finding klebsiella pneumoniae and microbial yeast overgrowth (candida). We did a standard treatment he always prescribes for this, cut out kombucha and I started eating all foods (I'd been gluten/dairy avoidant for years, thinking it was a dairy allergy). Things got better until they didn't... and now, 6 months out, have worse abdominal bloating and discomfort than before. (I'm talking side/liver pain, terrible + embarrassing gas, discomfort and going from loose stools to constipation and back again. IBS seems to be the thing all the doctors are saying, as I can't trace *one food* that causes an issue consistently. It's dairy, sometimes. Smoothies, sometimes. Greens, sometimes. Wheat, sometimes. Things really flared up after traveling to Australia and eating the airplane food. I feel strongly after listening to your podcast that your candida protocol would serve me well! I don't think it's just IBS, especially after having this testing. Plus, I was on a z-pack 3-4 x a year, *every year* as a child, on antibiotics for acne and birth control for a few years too. My main question is: do I need to do more testing since it's been 6 months? Or am I good to purchase the full protocol based on the blood work and stool samples I already have? I'm open to applying to work one on one, however know it's a large financial commitment and if I already have the tests, it might not be necessary! Thanks so much for taking the time! I look forward to completely healing! -Madison P.S. It's worth mentioning that diverticulitis also runs in my family, and almost everyone has gut issues. It *could* be that too?

Tiffany:  I am seeing a Naturopath in Atlanta about my fatty lipomas under the skin. She seems to know what she's talking about and after listening to several of your podcasts, I think she has put me on the right path. I would love to know if you have had experience with lipomas and have successfully treated them? I am 45 y.o., 133 lbs, and work out 5 times/week. I am "healthy" by western medicine standards, but have had gut issues and am now on Dr. # 4 trying to figure out what's causing the lipomas to appear. Dr. Kate Brooks says they are related to blood flukes, and immune/gut/inflammation issues and I have been on a host of supplements and minerals for the last month. I hope this will work, as I'm spending lots of $$$ on these supplements (none are her own brand. she recommends different ones).

Stephanie:  I'm writing in about my 9 year old son. He has a bad case of Keratosis Pilaris. I searched previous podcasts for Keratosis Pilaris but couldn't find any so I'm here asking your expertise. He recently finished your children's CBO protocol and followed it up with the gut rebuilding. The bumps on his arms are a lot better but the ones on his legs almost look worse. He had a history of antibiotics as a child BC of kidney problems (which is why we chose to do the CBO protocol). Wondering if this is diet related or what we can do to clear it up? Thanks so much for your time!

Thank you for tuning into this weekend’s Cabral HouseCalls and be sure to check back tomorrow for our Mindset & Motivation Monday show to get your week started off right!

897: Heal ThySelf, Acidity, Phantosmia, Thalessemia, Lichen Sclerosus, Neuropathy, Burping & Gurgling (HouseCall)
27:01

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:

Kylie: Hi Stephen! My name is Kylie and I’m from Australia. First of all I want to say thank you for everything your doing to help others all over the world. I came across your podcast only recently and have been binge listening ever since. The fact that you want to share your hard earned knowledge and reach out to help as many people as you can is truely inspiring! I am a mother of 3 beautiful children (9,7,5) and over the last few years have slowly felt my health start to suffer, where now I’m at a point where I feel completely overwhelmed, lost, unable to sleep, brain fog, moody, very VERY low libido, yeast infections, Dry skin, low mood and bloating. 6 years ago I learnt how nutrition played an important role in overall health. I eat clean whole foods- lots of veg, fruit, small amounts of red meat, fish, chicken, some nuts and seeds, healthy fats. No gluten, refined sugars, processed foods, alcohol or dairy. Bit of background- relatively healthy childhood. I was extreamly sick throughout all my pregnancies and was put on steroids for my 3rd pregnancy so I could just function. After I weened my 3rd child I noticed a huge hormonal shift that has never really normalised (negative mood, skin complexion, low libido, feeling down) Have been to doctors about my issues and without testing have just told me maybe I have IBS, pomphlox eczema (gave me steroid creams) and try to put me on anti-anxiety drugs. I have had a huge passion for health and wellness for many years and know that there is a root cause for all that’s going on health wise for me. I have lost faith in my GP and want to start putting my health and my life together. On one of your episodes, you mentioned, that in order to heal, you knew you had to switch off your “fight or flight” response. That healing cannot commence until we are calm and in a parasympathetic mode. I want to know more about how you made this switch and where I need to begin to start getting myself better. I also start studying nutrition next month and want to have the energy and focus to do so. Thank you, and I hope you can help me. With love, Kylie 

Chris: Hey Doctor Cabral! I'm a 26 year old, Pitta, exercise 5 times a week (bodybuilding style) and only have a once a week cheat meal like yourself. Stick to a 40/30/30 Carbs to protein to fat ratio. About six months ago I finished your cbo protocol for Sibo, h pylori and e coli. Although the healing has been a long process, now I feel great, I have no more bloating or brain fog even when I eat high fodmap foods. Still healing my adrenals which are much better with recently adding bitter melon to stabilize blood sugar seemed to help a lot especially with sleep. My only problem right now is I am still Constipated if I don't consume at least 800mg of magnesium daily. Right after the CBO protocol I tried to re build stomach acid and used ginger tea with meals only to have a severe burning in my stomach which significantly felt like it eroded my lining irritating it. It made sleeping a nightmare as my stomach would be pulsing all night. I began to take colloid silver and healthy belly for 2 months in case there was any h pylori still there. Then I started taking pepto bismol morning and night as a coating for my stomach as natural herbs gave me brain fog. 3 months later and my stomach was healed enough to switch to slippery elm and marshmallow root which have done wonders in soothing my stomach but now since I stopped the pepto bismol it feels like my motility is even slower. Right now I take glutamine, your daily activated multi, vitamin d, fish oil, melatonin, slippery elm, marshmallow root, your daily probiotic and a digestive enzyme. Zinc in any form even with food makes me nauseous and cannot tolerate gse at all, very irritating. Never have been able to tolerate citrus well for that matter. Have one cup of coffee with theanine in the morning. I also notice occasional bubbly urine. And I don't think it's h pylori only because I always have HUGE appetite lol. But in case I was thinking I may need to do some more colloidal silver and mastic gum again or maybe work on cooling herbs like amla to calm down and soothe my pitta? Or maybe its the adrenals? Sorry this is long, just wanted to be thorough. Lab testing is a little out of budget right now so any advice is much appreaciated. Thanks and loved your book by the way!

 

Elyssa: Hi! Big fan of your podcast and have learned so much from you. I'm 29 and suffer from a smell disorder, Phantosmia, for the past 10 years of my life along with anxiety. I was originally mis-diagnosed with Temporal Lobe Epilepsy and took several anti-Epileptic drugs for 6 years without much relief. When I got off all medication, I tried other methods of relief such as acupuncture with no success. I am now seeing a functional doctor who thinks based on my blood work, I have a low functioning immune system, deficiency in B12, and infection in my gut. I am drinking celery juice every morning to restore hydrocloric acid in my stomach and help get my digestive system functioning better. I'm very active and eat a very healthy, whole food diet. I just want to be better and get rid of this awful smell and anxiety, how do you think I can get cured of this?

 

Kelly: Hello Dr. Cabral! Love your podcast and listen every day! I was told when I was a teen that I have a genetic disorder in which my red blood cells are irregularly shaped. Specifically, my doc told me that my hemoglobin only holds 3 molecules of oxygen instead of 4. I researched this online as an adult and believe it is called Thalessemia. I was never told that I need blood transfusions, but the doc told me I would need to take iron supplements for the rest of my life. I have gone through periods of not taking the supplements out of fear of iron toxicity and negative log term effects of metal overdose. However, my energy decreases, I feel faint, and I experience negative psychological issues (especially in the days following menstruation) and eventually I return to supplementation. I am a clean eating vegan but I have never been athletic and easily become exhausted with overexertion and burnout easily in intensely mentally stressful situations. Can you please advise whether you think it's safe to be on a 150% RDA iron supplement for a condition like this or am I right to be concerned with the negative consequences of lifelong iron intake? Can you please tell me what you recommendations for someone with Thalassemia (and Gilbert's Syndrome) because research seems limited on the topic? THANK YOU!

Sue: Hi Dr Cabral, I’m a big fan and love listening to your podcasts whenever I have a down moment. Thank you for doing them and helping so many. I am a 38 yr old female and have dealt with Lichen Sclerosus of the vulva, perineum and anus for about 11 years now. It’s so uncomfortable it’s become crazy making. It’s impacted my ability to get a continuous scratch-free night’s sleep for years. Do you have any non-hormonal and non-steroid recommendations to help with the root cause or even the itchiness? My health background: Age 3 kidney failure from e. Coli and believe to have contracted Hep C while in the hospital, age 17 (1996) diagnosed with Hep C, age 20 got Lyme disease from a tick but cleared with heavy antibiotics, age 27 diagnosed with Lichen Sclerosus, age 33-34 forty-week Triple Therapy treatment for Hep C (Interferon, Ribavirin & Telaprivir), age 34 cleared Hep C, Thyroid tests all come back showing normal functioning. Sue (Bavaria, Germany)

 

Anita: Hi there, I'm wondering if there are any podcasts on the topic of neuropathy. My dad has neuropathy and I'd like to know if there is anything he might be able to do to help his health. I did a search on the website and nothing came up so I thought I'd check with you anyway. Thank you! Anita

 

Martin: Hello from the UK Dr. Cabral, I really enjoy your podcasts and find your approach to health and wellness very refreshing. Please can I ask your views on my 10 year old daughter. As a baby sometimes she would vomit immediately after drinking her formula milk (not just a little, almost the whole bottle would come back up). She was also quite windy. Randomly at the age of 3 or 4 she started to suffer from really bad constipation at one time she went almost 2 weeks without a bowel movement. The Doctors and Nurses who dealt with this treated us like we fed her a diet with no fibre which was not true. The Doctors didn’t seem interested in finding out why this happened and she was placed on a Medicine called Movicol infant which seemed to help (Here’s a Link to the product details which terrify me as I read them now – She was on a child version of this daily for approx. 12 months). However we found the single biggest factor in curing this was removing drinks with artificial sweeteners. From the ages of 2-5 she’d get ill with a cold in early October and be constantly ill until the following February. Today and over the past year or so her stomach looks bloated and feels hard. Sometimes after eating she’ll burp or gurgle a little which she finds embarrassing. Her bowel movements seem to be very slow too (not always daily). To give as much information as possible, her diet includes most everyday foods including gluten and dairy but also a good mix of vegetables and fruit. We had a food sensitivity test carried out last year (on a strand of her hair), it came back negative on Gluten and Dairy but suggested she had sensitivity to Carrots, plums and a couple of other vegetables. I know this is quite a lot to consider, but I feel there is an accumulation of signs which point to an underlying food/ digestion problem. If you have time, I’d really appreciate your advice on where to start with testing and healing. Also, if applicable how to approach an elimination diet on a child as I don’t want to give her a complex about certain foods. You might wonder why it’s taken so long to get to this. Well truth be told, I’m only just starting to join up what I see and wondering if there might be a link, rather than an unconnected sequence of conditions. This is coupled with the fact that Doctors don’t seem interested in finding out the cause of health conditions, they either can’t find anything wrong or give drugs to treat the symptoms rather than dealing with the cause. Many thanks for your time, Martin

895: Could You Pass This FBI Fitness Survival Test? (TT)
31:48

In the not too distant past I used to coach some very high level Olympian, World Champion, and professional athletes...

It was a lot of fun, but the stakes were much higher - A fraction of a second or minor deviation in technique was often the difference between winning and losing...

However, during this time I also began working with special operations military and FBI agent candidates that were looking to pass a unique fitness test that they'd be judged on...

It was the perfect blend of endurance and interval work that would prepare anyone for a survival based situation, which of course is why you had to be able to pass it to get into this elite club...

Believe it or not, even though the years have passed, I've never forgotten about this specific "test" and I've even begun to incorporate it once again into my own exercise routine...

So, on today's #CabralConcept 895 I want to share my high-level training philosophy which you that you can take anywhere in your life... Plus, I want to demonstrate the exact FBI Fitness Survival Test with you to see if you could pass it (let me know if you could or not!) - Enjoy the show!

894: Are You Just Tired or Do You Have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)?
34:04

"Adrenal Fatigue" or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS/CFIDS/POTS) go well beyond simply feeling just tired...

They are deep rooted nervous system, hormone, mitochondrial, and immune imbalances that have even deeper underlying root causes affecting those systems of the body...

This is why it's important to understand what level of fatigue your body is in and how quickly you can turn it around...

The good news is that there is one simple question to ask yourself to understand your level of adrenal fatigue and then a protocol based on that to move you towards perfect health (and abundant energy)!

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 894 to find out if you are just tired or if you're suffering from a level of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome that you never knew was there - Enjoy the show!

893: The Invisible Dangers of EMFs (TWT)
30:16

One of the hardest things about preventative natural health is to worry about something that you can't see...

And that's exactly the problem with trying to combat electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs)...

This "electrosmog" is everywhere we go and the emissions from cell phones, modems, smart meters, baby monitors, white noise machines, and thousands of other devices are affecting our cells at a DNA level...

This can lead to symptoms of fatigue, fibromyalgia, headaches, brain fog, inflammation, pain, hormone disruption, and even cancer...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 983 on the hidden dangers of EMFs and what you can do to block their harmful effects - Enjoy the show!

891: Triathlete Supplements, Adopting a Healthier Lifestyle, ED Issues, Fungus in Lungs, Sesamoid Bones, Ileostomy, (HouseCall)
27:46

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!

Kathryn:  Hi Dr. Cabral, I love your podcast and I'm working through listening to ALL episodes. Everything you say I can find studies to back up and I trust your opinion more than any other doctor. To get to my question, I am a 33 year old female and do Ironman triathlons. I eat an extremely healthy plant based vegan diet. Even while training I stick to natural sources for fuel. I eat raw dried fruit bars and bananas for calories in replace of sport gels, for hydration I mix sea salt in water with lemon juice and honey as well as drink raw coconut water. My question is, what supplements do you recommend I should be taking daily to support my training? Right now I supplement with B-Complex liquid, vitamin D, a Probiotic, and Magnesium. I tried taking Iron for about 8 weeks but I had bad reactions to it so I stopped. I've thought about taking a Vitamin C and a daily multi vitamin and I've thought about trying your nutritional support shake, but I'm afraid I'll have a reaction to some of the ingredients as I have a very sensitive stomach. I usually can't digest processed foods. Right now in lieu of a vitamin C supplement I add Camu Camu powder to my morning smoothie, but that is only about 4 days a week. I know the recommendations for the average person, but with the training I put my body through with15 hours a week of swimming, biking, running, strength, and yoga, I probably need more nutrients, I just don't know what and how much. I appreciate all that you do and I look forward to listening to your answer. I've heard you say you work with a lot of athletes so I believe you will have a better answer for me than the average naturopath doctor. Thank you!

Em:  Hi Dr. Cabral - my mom was recently diagnosed with diabetes. How do I get her to adopt a healthier lifestyle? She eats unhealthy and usually snacks right before going to sleep. Thanks!

 

Chu: Hi Dr Cabral, I am 37 years old and I've been having random twitches all over my body and dealing with ED issues for over a couple of years now. My doc wanted to put me on anxiety medication which I refused due to the side effect. I have a vata body type and yes I have been going through some stressful situation but nothing excessive. I was just wondering if this might be due a vitamin/mineral deficiency or something else? I recently started supplementing with zinc and B-complex. Also, I just started your 7-day detox a couple of days ago and was looking at purchasing the omega 3 but a friend informed me that Krill oil is better. They do both provide the same benefits correct? Thank you for your time.

 

Christian: Hello Dr. Cabral and team, I have many questions, but will keep this message succinct. From listening to your podcast, I am almost certain that I have some kind of fungal or yeast overgrowth happening in my body. I recently had a CT scan that showed “tree-in-bud” nodules on my lungs, which is typically seen as marker of some type of fungal infection, furthering my suspicion of an overgrowth (possibly Candida?). I am going to see a pulmonologist specialist at UCSF in two days, and I am afraid they may want to take an open lung biopsy to confirm any suspicions of infections they may have, however I am almost 100% certain that a fungal overgrowth is occurring (I have other “symptoms” like random skin rashes, white coating on tongue, memory fatigue, sporadically intense sugar cravings, etc etc..). Would an organic acids test be able to show if I have a fungal overgrowth? Or is there any other test, besides biopsy, that could help my doctors at UCSF confirm their suspicions of fungal infection? Personally, I have known people to do your Candida cleanse protocol, and their “symptoms” cleared up fantastically. I would be willing to get on that same protocol, but am unsure if my western medicine doctors will understand my concerns of not wanting to have a biopsy done and will be trusting enough of my own suspicions. Can you tell me the method/s that you would recommend to test for Candida/fungal overgrowth? Also, can you recommend what i should say to my doctors at UCSF to better express my concerns that this “infection” is more likely an overgrowth that could be minimized or suppressed through detox and diet change? Thanks in advance, Christian

 

Logan: Hello Dr. Cabral, love your podcast and how helpful you are to your listeners. I am a triathlete and I have been struggling with a necrotic (dead) sesamoid bone now for about 6 months. I haven't really been able to run since around that time. I had an MRI done and the Dr recommended working with a Physical Therapist who specializes in custom orthotics to help alleviate the pain around the sesamoid. I am currently still working with the PT, but we have tried 4 different kinds of orthotics, none of which relieving the pain even while walking. Do you have any recommendations on how to heal the area? I do not believe that the bone will come back to life, but am not certain if there are other things I could be doing for it. I have read horror story's online about how unsuccessful the surgery can be. All I want is to be able to run again and compete in triathlons, but at the bare minimum have a pain free walk. Thank you 

Meagan: It would be great to be advised by you re my wellness. My name’s Meagan I’m 31 years old and I live in Brisbane, Australia. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease 11 years ago and in 2011 I had an ileostomy constructed and in 2013 I had my large bowel/rectum/anus removed and my ileostomy has become permanent (To this day I have ongoing pelvic issues such as Pain and bottom wound discharge from post op complications and infection from 2013) I also have localised psoriasis (over my knuckles, navel), endometriosis, bilateral hydrosalpinx of my fallopian tubes, and bouts of anxiety. I’m a symptomatic carrier of duchenne muscular dystrophy and suffer from bouts of myositis and have chronically elevated CPK levels. My specialist advised me this year that I could cease my crohns medications due to good control of the disease. I’ve also weaned off my antidepressant completely a few weeks ago. The only medications I’m on are the contraceptive pill for endometriosis, krill oil, 3 monthly b12 injections and I use doterra essential oils for support. I use low tox/natural products to clean, I make my own liquid hand soaps, body scrubs, mouthwash, use organic toothpaste, natural deodorant paste and toxin free shampoo, I use a menstrual cup. I rarely wear makeup. I avoid buying processed food/I try to avoid preservatives etc, So I’m quite committed to looking after myself and lowering my toxic load. Concerns: 1) I’m constantly tired every day and lack energy (I don’t even remember the last time I wasn’t tired) and 2) despite all these positive things regarding my health, I still have low grade inflammation in my body (as per stool calprotectin level and crp blood result). Note: I haven’t had a crohns flare since my last surgery, My psoriasis hasn’t flared for a long time and I use essential oils to manage it, but I guess I’m wondering if it’s my endometriosis? My aim is to eventually stop taking the pill but I’m not sure if stopping it will worsen my endo. I’m certain my other contributing factors are anxiety/unbalanced mental health right now, stress, going to bed way too late at night, and higher concentration of pollution where I live. I guess why I’m emailing is because I want to know if you have any recommendations for: - controlling inflammation - what tests I should get done to provide a full body assessment of what areas need to be rebalanced (I hear you mentioning organic acids testing for candida screening, leaky gut screening, and investigation of food sensitivities on alot of your podcasts) - would a detox be recommended? - endometriosis control and management off the pill - recommendations on a functional medicine doctor/any other professionals Thank you so much for your time, Regards Meagan

890: Miserable Condition, Lead In Protein, Future Tours, Bulging Veins, High-Risk HPV, Balancing Female Hormones, Blending Foods, Bulky Calves (HouseCall)
28:18

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:

Cameron: Hi Dr Cabral, my name is Cameron, I'm a 42 year old male from Melbourne, Australia. I discovered your podcast a few months ago, after searching for answers to my medical issues, and since then I've been hooked. You've opened my eyes to the fascinating world of functional medicine, so thank you! My reason for writing is for advice on my Menieres disease that I was diagnosed with about three years ago, after a couple of severe vertigo episodes, along with tinnitus and hearing loss in my right ear. I have seen several ENT specialists, and had an MRI which came up clear, and done various tests to help confirm the diagnosis. As a result, I've been put on a low sodium diet, been prescribed Serc (betahistine) and a diuretic pill, and been told to also reduce caffeine, alcohol, and stress. I've also tried Ginko Biloba, and several different vitamins. The only medication that has noticeably helped is 2mg Valium pills, taken only when symptoms flare. After more sporadic episodes in the last year, usually lasting for a burst of a few weeks at a time, I had a steroid injection into my inner ear, which appears to have stopped the vestibular problems at least for now, however, the hearing problems and tinnitus remain. Hoping to find more help, and after hearing your podcasts, I started seeing a naturopath, who also used to be a pharmacist. She suggested an IGG food sensitivity test, which came back showing a strong sensitivity to egg and dairy. Up until then I loved eggs, and consumed whey protein powder on a regular basis around weight training. I'm currently on a moderate detox, and going to the gym more often to try to help with blood flow. I'd love to hear your thoughts on Menieres disease, and any suggestions as to what else you think could help me. It is a miserable condition, which I would do anything to get rid of. Once again, thanks so much for all you do, you're an inspiration, and I'm very glad I discovered your podcast. Regards, Cameron

 

Judy: Consumer Reports did another testing for lead found in popular protein powders. It was particularly high in vegan proteins which are ones I would be more inclined to use, so I am very concerned. I am currently using the Cabral Daily Nutritional Support Powder which happens to be vegan as well. Is your product tested for heavy metals, and if so, what were the results of the test? I appreciate what you do to help support our health and I was hoping that as you continue to make enhancements to your other product lines, I would love to see more vegan friendly protocols.

 

Stacey: Hi Doc, I would love to know what your West coast book tour stops are. Would you be able to give me the locations in Los Angeles/Santa Monica if these are on your stops?

 

Alex: Hello, I’m a loyal customer (completed DCD, using daily Cabral supplements, completed sleep hormone testing and sleep protocol) and enjoy listening podcasts. My question is about varicose veins (not spider veins but deeper veins). I have very big, bulging veins on one leg and less severe case on the other. They first appeared over 30 years ago after my 1st pregnancy. 8 years ago I had a laser closure procedure that was not successful as it never repaired my veins and they continue to be very enlarged. Here are my 2 questions:- what would you recommend for treating or preventing further development of varicose vein? - i’m doing spin classes 2 - 3 times a week. Can that contribute to the enlarged veins? Should I avoid this type of exercise? And what is recommended? Thank you!

 

Jenny: Hi Dr Cabral, I've recently had my annual pap smear and have been diagnosed with high-risk HPV, without abnormal cells. Could you let me know what's the best way to get rid of the virus as fast as possible? Which of your supplements would you recommend? I'd like to add that I eat a very healthy, mostly plant-based, diet and supplement with Vitamin C, Zinc, Selenium, Magnesium, B-12 and Vitamine D. I also drink green juices daily, and use superfoods like chlorella, spirulina, maca, Ashwagandha, etc. But I would love to hear your suggestions on what more I could do, as I value your opinion more than my doctor’s. Very muck looking forward to your feedback!

 

Susanna: Dear Dr. Cabral, I listen to your podcast every single day, and it has changed my life! I did your Candida protocol, and finally found relief after years of gut issues. Thank you for that! Now I have a question about a different health issue: I’m 41 and have been dealing with PCOS for 10 years now. I’ve managed to keep it under control with healthy diet and supplementation, but after 3 years of having it back, my period went missing again.. :( Which supplements/protocols do you recommend for balancing the female hormones, and hopefully getting my period back? Thank you for everything, you’re my hero! :) 

Alana: Hi there... I see you offer detox’s etc, however some people reviews stated they works with you on a program. Do you offer online services, like a meal plans and workout plan together? I live in Canada and was wondering if I could work with you In order to lose about 15 pounds. I’m a 41 year old female and would love your help!

 

Yasmine: Hello Dr. Cabral, I love eating smoothie bowls for breakfast. I usually add plant milk, vegan protein, avocado, the greens, nuts, seeds and superfoods to it, and it's an easy way to get all my nutrients in. I know you're a big fan of smoothies for breakfast, so you are the perfect person to ask: is blending the foods as healthy as eating them whole? Does it make nutrients more or less absorbable or effective. Is blended fibre (in flax seeds for example) still as good for regularity as the whole ones? Thank you very much for your answer!  

Clemens: Hi Dr Cabral, Thank you for everything! You've been a tremendous help. Now, my problem are my calves. They're kind of bulky anyway but by the end of the day more often than not they are just so swollen. They are heavy and it makes me tired. Also it looks really bad and my pants don't fit anymore. For the life of me I can't figure out what it is. I reduced my water, carb and dairy intake and that seems to help a little. Definitely looking forward for your food sensitivity test coming to Europe! Is there anything else I should consider? Best of wishes and thanks again Clemens

26:21

I've got a fun #FridayReview lined up for you today with everything from what we have coming up over the next 2 weeks to a plant known for stinging you with serotonin!

First up, we'll be covering a brand new piece of research on how timing just 15-minutes of cardio after learning a new skill can dramatically increase your retention and processing...

Next, I feel I have to give fair warning about the trend of taking random supplements based on genetic mutations that may or may not be presenting themselves in a person's present life...

And finally, I'll be bringing you my super-nutrient of the week which today focuses on a plant known to reduce inflammation, allergies, joint pain, and prostate issues...

888: Guest Interview with the BodyBuilding Yogi, Ben Pakulski (TT)
53:42

Ben Pakulski is a living legend when it comes to transforming your body to the highest level imaginable...

However, he's also a bit of an enigma in the fact that he spends a lot of his time talking about how to create change on the inside before you ever think about shaping the outer physique you desire...

Now of course, on this guest interview I did ask Ben about his exercise training techniques and he was nice enough to share and breakdown his "S.S.I" formula that gives his clients and unfair advantage in the gym...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 888 for this fun and informative conversation with the BodyBuilding Yogi, Ben Pakulski - Enjoy the show!

25:27

If you were to go back just a couple hundred of years, you'd be surprised at the various rituals people did on a yearly basis in order to stay healthy...

You'd probably be even more surpirsed to hear that these had been handed down to them for thousands of years from their ancestors that knew the secrets to staying well...

And, I think most people would be shocked to find out that all of these ancient practices are now being proven by medical science and lab testing to be accurate and necessary...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 887 to discover the 4 different cleanses you must do yearly to stay healthy - Enjoy the show!

886: Eat These 3 "Unhealthy" Foods Daily (TWT)
37:04

With an internet full of different diet plans telling us what's safe to eat and what's not it can be ridiculously difficult to figure out who or what is right...

Besides that, we have a lot of plans that are meant to work in the short-term (and do work), but fail miserably in terms of long-term health and body transformation...

One of the reasons for this is that diet programs that eliminate certain "healthy" foods by putting them on their "NO list," causes you to miss out on their extremely valuable nutrients that you need to prevent dis-ease and cancer...

That's why on today's #CabralConcept 886 I want to share with you 3 so-called "unhealthy" foods that you should be eating on a regular basis to get well, transform you body, and live longer - Enjoy the show!

In my opinion the Rain Barrel Effect can and should used in every area of your life...

Whether it be mental or physical wellness, weight loss, or anti-aging issues it's important to be aware of what's building up and causing stress in your life...

In my opinion, we often give out far too much advice in our culture that revolves around what more we should be doing or adding to our life...

That's why in today's #CabralConcept 885 I want to share with you one technique to raise your energy and vibration levels by doing the opposite - Enjoy the show!

884: Toxic Work Environment, Gallbladder Missing, Protein in Kidneys, Choking, Elderly Falls, Cardiac Inflammation, Rash on Face, Enzyme Timing, "Lady Regions" (HouseCall)
34:40

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!

Carla: I have PCOS, and possibly endometriosis & some type of thyroid dysfunction (these two haven't officially been diagnosed, but I have symptoms that have lead me to think I may have them). As I learn more about my condition and how to heal myself through lifestyle & supplements, I also try to get rid of toxins, do detoxes, eat well & exercise. However, I've worked with fire resistant garments for almost 15 years of my life and recently I learned that fire retardants are endocrine disruptors. I'm not able to immediately leave that field of work. Is there a way I can protect myself? I recently started wearing gloves (but they are plastic which is possibly not ideal either) and a cotton mask to keep from breathing in the fibers. What would you recommend? I'm not sure exactly HOW bad it is to continue working like this or if it's something I definitely need to get away from as soon as possible. Thank you for any guidance!

Kate: Hi Dr Cabral, I had my gallbladder removed 10 years ago but didn't drastically alter my diet until about 3 years. I eat a mainly paleo lifestyle (with occasional legumes), and I've discovered through recent bloodwork that I have deficiencies in a number of areas. Specifically with Vitamin D and also with my thyroid (I am well outside the "optimal" range but technically still "normal"). I take 3000 IU Vitamin D each day but after researching saw that having no gall bladder can lead to the inability to absorb fat-soluble vitamins as well as possibly affect thyroid and even cholesterol. Is there a way to overcome this? If I were to start taking your daily digestive enzymes, could that help my vitamin absorption? Thank you!

Julie: Dear Dr. Stephen Cabral, A friend of mine suggested your podcast last week and I have binged listened ever since. I have dealt with different issues such as Candida and fatigue. I overcame Candida with an elimination diet. Or maybe so I have thought… I have had my thyroid tested and it is normal. All my markers are normal except they found that I have Kidney disease. They were not able to find the root cause of it… My glomerular filtration rate is currently at 46 mL/min. The nephrologist stated that since I am an athletic build that is why. I am currently dealing with mood and fatigue. So if you can point me in the right direction of testing and why, that would be very helpful. Thank you! Julie Johnson 

Jill: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have a friend who has achalasia. She has had the balloon dilation procedure done 2-3 times. It often works for a time and then she has difficulty getting food down her esophagus. I'd love to hear your thoughts on diet info related to achalasia, the possibility of overcoming it, and any steps she could take to find health/healing. My understanding is that it's an autoimmune disease ... and can't be "cured" ... ? But I know you overcame Addison's. Any help/direction would be so amazing! Thank you so much for these house calls!!!

Claude: Hi! Don't know if you've already talked about this on your podcast: "Elderley's falls" (sarcopenia)?Is there anything i can do for my 93 years old dad?Thank you from Quebec.Canada

Elizabeth: Dear Dr. Cabral - I found your podcast about 6-8 months ago after you appeared on EOFire. My daughter was "cured" from her gut, thyroid, chronic EBV through holistic/funcational/naturopathy and it literally gave her a life again! (She lives in Florida and we live in the middle of the country. )So thankful! But today, I'm writing about my husband. Genetically he is challenged. By that I mean that everyone in his family is/was obese. His 2 brothers died in their 50's, (one from a PE and one from untreated diabetes) His two living sisters are in their late-50's and early 60's. One is riddled with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and both are overweight. His father died of Lymphoma at 72 and his mother from congestive heart failure at 82At 40 my husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer, but considered cured from that. At 46, he developed progressive hip pain and the joint was so eroded that he had to undergo a hp replacement at 47. All the nsaids and steroids that he took for that and for years prior to that for a football (knee) injury lead to acute renal failure before the replacement was done. His knee was replaced about a year ago. He has a stressful job and works about 7 days a week. He was also diagnosed with osteopenia at 46 and used Forteo for about 6 months, but I just wasn't comfortable with him continuing that. Since then he has been on Prolea. Uses supplements from the Shalkee Corporation. Daily vitamin, D3, Calcium, Iron and CoQ10. About 2-3 years ago he began gaining weight and becoming more and more fatigued. But our diet had not changed and in fact has gotten cleaner and healthier due to my desire to feel my family whole foods For 25 years he maintained a weight of 165 +/- 3 pounds. He's gained about 35 pounds; mostly around his umbilical area, but also in his groin area. He is tired ALL the time, cold, his eyes are puffy every morning, decreased libido, frequent nose bleeds, (but only after blowing his nose) decreased muscle mass and seems to catch every cold virus that comes around. He's always had periodic bouts of HSV II which seem to be worse with increased stress. He had extensive lab testing done last fall through Veridia Diagnostics. I would be happy to send these to you. Cardiac inflammation is a little high with hs-CRP 2.1 and Homocysteine (10). Food Allergies (IgE) were all negative, but IgA was not done. Lipid; Total Cholesterol 217 Triglycerides 100, HDL 70, LDL 141, Apo B 104. Fasting glucose 97, Insulin 7, A1C 5.3, Cortisol 11.2, Adiponectin 25.6, Leptin 13.9 Ferritin 156, Vitamin D 66, Magnesium 2.2, Creatine 1.3 Cystatin C 1.07 TSH 2.0, T4 5.3, Free T4 1.0, T3 1.23, Free T3 3.0, Thyrodglobuin antibody 10.6, Thyroid peroxidase antibody 12.93, Testosterone 640.6, FTI 31.7, SHBG 70.2, Estadiol 29.6 I think we have a thyroid problem, even though his labs are "normal". What should we do next? Sorry this got so long, but I really value your opinion. He would like to feel more like himself again and lose the weight. I would like to have a more energetic husband. Thank you in advance, Dr. Cabral!

Lizzie: Hello! My husband has had a persistent rash on his face that seemed to come out of no where. In January it started. It looks like small tiny pimples and red dots. Forhead, nose, cheeks. Subsides slightly and always comes back. His face is not itchy and it is most prominent when out of shower. Then in Feb his stomach started becoming itcy, more patches of dry skin, not rash-like on his face. He also has had toe-fungus for years, from sports in college. What could be causing this rash and how can he work to get rid of it? He eats very little protein, when he does, crappy chicken. Lots of veggies and he does have a massive sweet tooth. He is 37 yo. he is also going through a job transition. thank you!

Terri: I just purchased your digestive enzyme. Do I take this 15 min before each meal or only the first meal of the morning? It then works all day with just taking in the morning? Thank you 

Catherine: Hi Stephen, I regularly listen to your podcasts and would love it if you could help me out. Here’s a bit of information about myself, I’m 24, came off the pill just over 2 years ago and got quite bad acne all over my face (got worse and worse over time). Previous to coming off the pill, roughly about 1-2 years before, I became intolerant to dairy. In the past year I have been getting reoccurring yeast infections ("lady regions"). I have just completed a 3 month parasite cleanse, saw lots come out in my poop and I feel much better for doing it. However I am still getting yeast infections, I have figured out I have candida / gut issues. Would you recommend any other tests apart from the acids test? I’m not sure if my hormones could still be imbalanced? I have cut out a lot of foods that I used to eat such as bread, refined sugar etc but it’s not enough to kill whatever yeast/bacteria is inside me. Thank you

Annie:  Hello, I have been suffering with halitosis for around 15 years. I have been to every specialist that there is. I have even had my stomach biopsy and I have been to several dentist and gum specialist to rule out oral health care and everyone tells me I am fine and they cannot find anything wrong. My breath smells like feces and I didn't know what else to do? Please tell me where to start. Do you except health insurance?

Thank you for tuning into this weekend’s Cabral HouseCalls and be sure to check back tomorrow for our Mindset & Motivation Monday show to get your week started off right!

883: My Health Coaches, Gut-Based Acne, Prostatitis, Lack of Water, Face Paralysis, Blood Panel Test, Eliminating Foods, Abdominal Pain (HouseCall)
26:40

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:

Ali: I’m applying for the private concierge membership because I want one-on-one consultation with Dr. Cabral for a complicated situation that I’m in... I noticed that Julia and Caitlin are almost half the cost of seeing Dr. Cabral… is that cost difference a reflection of their ability to diagnose as well as Dr. Cabral, or is it more so a reflection of popularity because he’s of course the man behind the magic of all of this? Thanks! Ali

 

Libby: I’ve been listening to your podcasts for a little while, I can’t find you addressing this question, and thought it would be beneficial for many people. My daughter is almost 13 and is struggling with acne and has had some learning disabilities. I was listening to you suggest that they both are gut related. She was on antibiotics a lot as a baby/toddler. She had reoccurring ear infections and strep. She then had tubes, adenoids out, and tonsils out. What would you suggest for an almost teenager in getting her gut healthy?

 

Annie: I'm dating someone who has prostatitis. He's 30 and has seen a couple of MD's who all tell him not to worry about it. He used to drink quite a bit and has recently stopped which his doctors said is a good thing. He has pain in his low back and fell on his coccyx when he was little. We are working to strengthen his feet and spine, but the pain wakes him up at night when he changes positions and when he lays on a flat surface. He saw an acupuncturist that said sex is good for him and there isn't pain with orgasm. Is there anything else that you can recommend that he do to help remedy this? Thank you for your insight and all you do.

 

Terry: Am I getting enough water when I only consume between 30 - 40 ounces of water per day? If I try to force myself to drink more water, it only feels like I have a fish bowl in my belly. I ONLY drink natural spring water or filtered zero water with concentrace mineral drops. No soda, no alcohol. I have organic green tea once or twice per week. I feel great and have zero dehydration symptoms I know of. I will drink more water if I go hiking, but, it's still not remotely close to 1oz per body weight. Once again, I feel great, but, if I try to drink more water, I don't feel as good. I've always been this way. Urine was clear until I started taking the active B complex vitamins, now it is Yellow due to the B vitamins. I am vata body type all the way. Male, 47, 6 ft tall, 125 and cannot gain weight regardless of how much I work out or eat. I recently saw a local naturopath doctor. No sibo, candida, nor parasites. Lots of food intolerance due to leaky gut, but already healing from that with help from her and from you. I am a huge fan of your show. Thank you for all you do!

 

Peg: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you so much for all of the incredible information you share on your podcasts each day; I’ve learned so much from you over the last year and still find episodes I haven’t heard yet. I’ve also recommended your podcast to countless friends for all types of advise. I’ve searched your archives to see if you’ve answered any questions about Bell’s Palsy and I haven’t been able to find anything on this topic. 3 Months ago after a long plane flight I woke up to 1/2 of my face totally paralyzed. I was in a foreign country and not near a hospital so I searched online for answers as to what may have happened and determined it was likely Bell’s palsy. I contacted my pcp who prescribed a course of antivirals plus prednisone. Even though I did not want to take either, I could not find any other suggestions online so I tried them both without improvement. Once I returned to the states I saw my doctor who confirmed I have Bell’s Palsy, but only based on a clinical diagnosis, no MRI. Can you please tell me what causes Bell’s and what I can do to help to improve the symptoms? I’ve regained partial function in areas of my face but I far from back to normal. My doctor said it can take up to 6 months to go away and has no suggestions for treatment in the meantime. I am anxious to do something to regain my normal face back! So far I’ve done a few things on my own: Acupunture. Oral B12. Alpha Lipoic Acid. Please let me know if you can help, or if you have treatment suggestions. Thank you so much, Peg

 

Lily: Hi! I am writing to you with a question regarding the blood panel test Dr. Cabral recommended on his podcast, Female Panel by Life Extension. I have been experiencing amenorrhea for about a year as well as persistent digestive issues (constipation, bloating), anxiety and now brain fog. My gynecologist sent me for some very basic bloodwork a few months back (FSH, LH, TSH, DHEA-S) but besides a DHEA-S level of 498 she said I seemed to be "in range". I have been recommended to take Spironolactone/birth control but I am focusing on addressing the underlying stressor/s that are contributing to these symptoms. In order to get the best results with the blood panel, Life Extension recommends pre-menopausal females to get blood drawn on day 21 of their cycle. Being that I have amenorrhea, do you have any further recommendations for when I get the bloodwork done? Thank you for any help you can provide, sorry this was so much at once! I really appreciate all you do. Sincerely, Lily

 

Tallulah: Hello! I love the information you provide and have been seeing some great benefits from your CBD Oil. I am basically a mess, physically, right now and my quality of life is definitely not great. After being healthy my entire life (aside from stomach issues), I have been diagnosed with the following: Bradycardia, Metabolic alkalosis, hypoglycemia, raynaud's disease, leukopenia, amenorrhea (haven't menstruated in 4 years). I spent time in a treatment center for an eating disorder but I was really just eliminating foods over time that were hurting my stomach (and I enjoy working out—wasn't trying to lose weight). I should mention that I haven't had any kind of illness such as a cold or flu for over 10 years so at least my immune system seems to be working! At this point, I can barely eat or drink anything without bloating and pain. I have eaten clean for many years—pescatarian—organic, lots of vegetables, pasteurized eggs and no dairy or gluten. I also grill or bake all of my vegetables to help with digestion—even lettuce—never raw. I make my own soups and meals so as to avoid added salt or hidden gluten. I also don't take any medications other than Vitamin D, Biotin, Iron, zinc and magnesium supplements (clean versions) and unfortunately, miralax because I don't seem to be able to have a bm without it, which makes everything worse. At this point, I don't know what to do but suspect your Candida & Bacterial Protocol could help. Does it require fasting in any way? I am concerned about eliminating even more foods and losing more weight and getting lightheaded. Also, I would desperately love to do all of your tests to finally get some answers but know that I can't afford them right now. Do you have any recommendations for my situation aside from the tests? Hopefully, someday I can take them. I am no longer going to traditional doctors as it has cost a lot of money, hasn't helped and goes against most of what I believe in for how to heal the body. I appreciate any advice you can provide. Thank you so much for all of the help you are providing people. You are literally, saving lives. Thank you!

Laura: Hi Stephen, I love your podcast and everything you're doing. I've had increasing lower abdominal pain over the last 12 months. It's becoming unbearable and really affecting my day to day life. I'm extremely healthy and lived a balanced lifestyle. I avoid dairy and gluten. 2 weeks ago I had the laparoscopy for the removal of endometriosis but None was found. I got my period this month for the first time in a year. I am not under weight or living I highly stressed life. A year ago I would have been very stressed though. My blood tests are great according to gymno and doctor and I monitor all the things that could potentially affect or cause these pains. There's no common foods that I am aware of. What questions me is the pain comes on around 5pm and stays for 3-4 hours. Generally I have lunch around 1 and don't snack at work or really eat until dinner. The pain seems to ease after I eat. The pain is shark, in the middle of my lower abdomen and causes severe bloating. Could I have a parasite or something causing this pain when my stomach is potentially empty? I'm exhausted and gutted that even after an operation I don't have any answers! If I was to take any of your tests what would you recommend? Any advice will help I don't even know where to begin now. Thank you so much

882: What Bad Medical Science Looks Like, Vegan Gelato, Vitamin B5 (FR)
29:47

Welcome back to the #FridayReview and we’ve got a great one today!

First up I’ll be sharing with you another (even cleaner) vegan gelato to enjoy on those hot summer month flex meal days... 
 
Then, I go back and forth over some dubious medical research on eye heath that shows how poorly done many of these “scientific research” studies are... 
 
Lastly, I reveal this week’s super-nutrient that is referred to as the “Hormone & Adrenal Vitamin” because of its impact on energy and hormone production...
 
It’s been a fun week on the #CabralConcept podcast and I hope you enjoy today’s show!

880: The 10 Unhealthy Health Foods I Won't Eat or Recommend (WW)
32:33

In our culture we love to kinda-of, sorta-of, twist the truth to make certain beliefs fit into our dogma...

And this couldn't be more true than in the world of health & nutrition...

For example, I have no problem with making fun delicious recipes, but do you really think Paleolithic people were baking "Paleo" almond flour cupcakes?

All kidding aside, on today's #CabralConcept 880 I list the 10 unhealthy health foods (not paleo cupcakes ; ) that I won't eat or recommend because they're deceptively horrible for your health - Enjoy the show!

877: Bone Density Testing, Exercise Wheezing, Menstrual Acne, SIBO Regrowth, Wean Off Anti-Depressants, Low Back Thyroid Pain, Missing Period Test (HouseCall)
23:32

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!

Alex: Hello Dr. Cabral, I’m a long time listener of your podcasts, have done DCD and sleep protocol. Thank you for educating the community, i’ve learned so much! I’m interested to find out when women should request a bone density test? Is it driven by the age (50s ?) or by having any specific symptoms? I’ve searched the podcasts but didn’t find any reference to this topic. Thank you!

Donna: When I do Russian Twists, I hear an echoey sound as I inhale/exhale when I twist from side to side. It's what I would imagine someone with asthma might sound like. I also have muffled hearing in both ears, mild stuffiness, and a little pressure in my forehead. I do not experience this with rowing, sprints, weight lifting, jump rope, or anything else. Could this be a symptom to a food sensitivity? I eat friends uit, vegetables, lean meat, salmon, seeds/nuts (NO Peanuts), No dairy except Kerry Gold Butter. I eat eggs from free range chickens. Any thoughts on this? (You are welcome to resend this pacific question if needed)

Nicole: Hi there! I'm not sure which test(s) I should be taking. I'm 32 year old woman, do resistance training 4-5x per week, am about 13% body fat and am considered healthy. I eat pretty high quality food 90% of the time but do have the occasional treat (gluten and sugar, some dairy). I suffer from chronic acne on my chin (prominent around my period but I typically have redness and inflammation all month long). I am SO over it. After listening to the podcast, I may have some form of hypothyroidism. I really want to optimize my health, continue to feel amazing as I age and get rid of this acne I've been battling for a few years (after I had my son 7 years ago). If you can suggest which test(s) I should consider, I'd appreciate it. Thank you!

Taylor: Hi Dr. Cabral, I recently did the Candida and Bacterial Overgrowth Protocol and I stuck to it very well the whole time. I was feeling amazing around the 60 day mark. Around day 80 I started getting really bad gas pains, burping a lot in between meals as well as right after, and it has been going on constantly for 3 month. My digestive issues were never this bad and I am feeling unsure about what to do next. I also took 2 rounds of the Healthy Belly and have been on the clean gut probiotic and that hasn’t seemed to change anything. I did some food sensitivity testing as well and nothing is seeming to show up. Do you have any recommendations on what I should do? I appreciate it!

Lindsay: Hello Dr. Cabral. Thanks for all you do to bring overall health and wellness to the masses! 5 years ago I was diagnosed with post-partum depression and put on Lexapro (antiidepressant). My symptoms continued, even after seeking therapy and being put on the highest dose of Lexapro and eventually adding Wellbutrin, at its highest dosage. I struggled with massive downs which left me unable to leave bed for days and frequent suicidal thoughts, terrible irritable and an inability to cope with anything, and extreme dependence on outside stimuli to find happiness. Eventually it led to a referral to a psychiatrist who diagnosed me as bi-polar. Since being put on valproic acid (depakote) my symptoms have been much more manageable. I have been able to lower my dosage of both of my anti depressants, yet I still do take them. My question is - where do you stand on the use of pharmaceuticals in mental health? Would one be able to alter their chemical makeup through diet, supplements, lifestyle? I feel so great now that I am more balanced, but would ultimately love to not rely on pharmaceuticals. I should add that I take Vitamin D, Bs, multi, Fish Oil, Calcium-Magnesium-Zinc. I recently purchased a light box to sit under in the mornings for about 30 minutes, even though I live in a decently sunny area.

Alisha: How does Lower back pain relate to low thyroid function?

Mason: Hello! I love your podcast and everything you talk about so much. My question for you is this. I college student, and I just turned 20. It's been just over a year now that I haven't gotten my period.Within this past year of losing my period, I went away to college which caused a lot of stress to me, and I started to develop more of a plant based diet. I am not fully plant based, as I do eat meat and eggs every once and a while but not very often. I have been to my primary doctor about this. He did some blood work, and all of my hormone levels are normal. I have a pelvic ultra sound scheduled in May. In the mean time what should I do? Do you recommend that I get any other tests done? Should I incorporate certain foods/supplements to try and get it back? I want to get it back as naturally as possible. Thank you so much!

Thank you for tuning into this weekend’s Cabral HouseCalls and be sure to check back tomorrow for our Mindset & Motivation Monday show to get your week started off right!

876: Healthy Travel, Greens & Proteins, Inflamed Gymnast, Antibiotics & Dental Surgery, Treating Blood-Based Symptoms, Eating Disorder (HouseCall)
29:52

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:

Brodie: Hi Dr Cabral. I thoroughly enjoy listening to your podcasts and really appreciate the knowledge that you share. I am travelling to India for approximately one month this year. I am worried about falling sick whilst I am there from food or other sources. Can you suggest some key supplements and natural first aid products that would be useful for my trip? I am not based in America and unfortunately cannot afford to purchase your products and then pay for shipping fees on top of the cost (I have already inquired with your team about this). I have previously listened to one of your podcasts suggesting that low stomach acid can contribute to some bacteria illness'. I was wondering if a product related to this would be suitable for me to take? I look forward to hearing your suggestions and I would much prefer to use natural products than conventional ones, I am just unsure exactly what to bring. Thank you!

 

Erin: Is it okay to mix the greens powder and the daily nutritional support shake in the morning or should I drink them separately/ at different times? I wasn't sure if it matters or not. Thank you! 

Lauren: Hi Dr. Cabral, I was so excited to find your show! I have been listening to several shows a day and can't seem to get enough. When you speak about functional medicine chronic illnesses both physical and mental seem to make sense and there is so much hope out there for those that suffer from them! I have a question about my younger sister, and was hoping you could provide some insight. My sister is a competitive gymnast and 15 years old. Over the last year she has intermittently complained of shortness of breath. After Christmas she got a cold, followed by influenza (which she tested positive for) and sinus infections and then hand foot and mouth (vs a reaction to the antibiotics she was on for her sinus infection). She was out from school and practice for over 2 weeks.After the illnesses this winter her difficulty breathing became much worse (notably on her floor routine). My mom had just taken her down to Rush in Chicago for testing for an exercise challenge test last week and the test confirmed exercised induced asthma. She also had her IgE preliminary test was negative awaiting on the specific results. She was prescribed an inhaler containing albuterol and steroids taken 2 puffs 20 min prior to practice. I feel like we are just applying a bandaid over a much bigger problem and was wondering if you could shed some insight onto how you may work up this case. Thank you so very much for all you do and for sharing your knowledge with so many others to help improve their quality of life! ~Lauren

PS- no need to share this on the podcast as this is a complete tangent, but I am a small animal veterinarian and starting my journey in a more holistic approach in my practice because of how you and other functional medicine practitioners have inspired me! Animals have more chronic illness and cancer now than ever before.... and its time to start looking for those root causes in them too!

Nancy: Dear Dr. Cabral, Firstly, I’d like to say thank you so much for all your excellent advice and nutritional supplements, both of which have helped me dramatically improve my overall health and energy levels in just a few short months. My question is regarding the prophylactic use of antibiotics post-surgery. I am scheduled for gum graft surgery in a few months, and I know the periodontist will prescribe some antiibiotics afterwards to prevent infection and to ensure the graft doesn’t fail. I was prescribed amoxicillin after my previous gum graft and had horrible side effects (a rash that lasted a month and lots of digestive issues), so I’d really like to avoid taking antibiotics again, especially now that I’ve done the Dr. Cabral Detox and am feeling so much better. I’m wondering if I start taking extra nutritional supplements such as high doses of vitamin C, D and zinc in advance of the surgery and afterwards, would it be sufficient to minimize the risk of infection? If so, what would be the recommended dosages, and would you suggest any other supplements as well? Overall I am quite healthy; I don’t take any medications and rarely get sick, so I think my immune system is pretty decent already. I follow a mainly plant-based diet, and am taking the DNS powder and fruit and vegetable blend daily, along with immune boosting mushrooms like chaga and lion’s mane. Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated! Kind regards, Nancy

 

Katie: Hi Dr. Cabral, I'm a fairly new listener of your podcast and I've found it to be extremely educational and helpful in my journey to improve my health. I was diagnosed about 4 years ago with Triangular Alopecia shortly after taking an antibiotic (when I was 22 my skin drastically changed and I suffered severe breakouts--antibiotics and acne creams where the Dermatologists treatment recommendation). I've had my hormone and thyroid levels tested several times by my Dermatologist and my PCP, all of which came back normal except for my estrogen levels which were slightly low according to my PCP. I've taken Spironolactone, Doxycycline, and Birth Control. My acne is under control but I continue to lose hair around my scalp and on the sides near my ears. I had a biopsy done a couple years ago that showed signs of female pattern hair loss, which my Derm could not make sense of because of my young age and location of the hair loss. After several years of treatment with creams and pharmaceutical drugs failing I decided to see a local CD who also addresses hormone and other imbalances in the body. The tests I did with him showed normal levels for my thyroid but extremely low levels of Estradiol (<0.20), Progesterone (<0.20), and Testosterone (0.20), High Cortisol (12.6), Deficient in Vitamin (B12 13%), and Deficient in Vitamin D. The results confirmed all my symptoms. He recommends I take B Complex vitamins, Vitamin D3, a Multivitamin, B 12 Folate, Progesterone cream (1/4 teaspoon days 12-27 of cycle), and Testosterone Cream (1/2 teaspoon daily). Have you ever connected these imbalances or deficiencies to Alopecia and used this treatment regiment? I am excited to have answers and alternative treatment to Rx but worried about inciting further damage to my body. Sorry for such a lengthy question. Thank you for all your hard work and compassion towards helping people!

Mia: Hi Dr. Cabral! My name is Mia and I’m 27 years old. I’ve struggled with eating issues for 10 years 5 years bulimia and 5 years binge eating disorder. Any tips on how to manage that and control my mind? Also I became a carrier of tuberculosis when I was 13 years old and I had to take isoniazid for nine months. I feel like I’m always tired even though I get good sleep. Would you think that antibiotic contributes to my fatigue and also I have hormonal acne on my neck, jawline and chin. What tests would you recommend for m?!

874: How Saunas Boost Your Immune System & Fight Cancer (TT)
22:52

I'm more likely to promote a healing modality that's been around for over 1,000 years than I am to go head over heals about the latest "biohack..."

I honestly believe that most of what we need to heal our body has already been laid out for us over thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine and other methodologies...

However, I do enjoy seeing these ancient healing techniques being proven by science and backed up in the real world...

This is why on today's #CabralConcept #874 I want to share with you how saunas boost your immune system and fight cancer - Enjoy the show!

873: Should You Be Following the New Nordic Diet? (WW)
31:15

Over the years I would say I've been a close follower of every new diet that's hit the mainstream - I consider it my job to know what people are reading about...

Most of them literally aren't worth mentioning since they do more harm than good...

But every now and again there's some excellent research that lifts a legitimate diet plan up and it stands on its own merit...

One of those "new diets" is called the Nordic Diet and on today's #CabralConcept 873 I want to share with you the details of this diet plan and if you should be following its principles in your own life - Enjoy the show!

872: New Research: Can You Cheat Death? (TWT)
37:20

Every once in awhile when I'm doing some in depth research I have an "aha" moment where things begin much clearer...

And, when I was re-reviewing the top 12 causes of mortality I felt a sense of clarity that enabled me to see through the seemingly disconnectedness of each individual reason...

What I came up with is that there are a small handful of things you should NEVER be doing that will enable you to most likely live at least a decade longer and stronger... 

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 872 to discover this new research on how you just may be able to cheat death for at least extra 10 years - Enjoy the show!

870: Abnormal Periods, Healthy Weight Gain, Linzess, Heavy Sweater, Natural Hair Care, Skin Issue Causes, GI Map Test (HouseCall)
28:08

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!

Gwen: I've pretty much always had abnormal periods, but now it's almost been two years since my last period. I've gone to the gynecologist, with no real answers. The doctor ran several test, including checking my testosterone, Sex Hormone-binding Globulin, DHEA Sulfate, Luteinizing Hormone, and thyroid. All of these came back within normal range. The blood-work did show low prolactin (2.7 ng/ml) and low 17-OH progestrerone 14 ng/dl). I'm not underweight, nor do I have extremely strenuous exercise. Emotionally I do not feel stressed, so I'm not sure what else could be causing the amenorrhea. Some further background I've also been suffering from chronic constipation, and had the Mediator Release blood test. For the digestion issues, I've been following a low fodmap diet, while under the direction of a dietician. She had me taking Designs for Health GI Revive formula, magnesium, digestive enzymes and probiotics. The digestion does seem to be improving and now I'm trying the reintroduction phase. I also have low Complement C3 and C4, Speckled ANA Pattern, ANA titer 1:40, positive ANA screen by IFA, but my rheumatologist doesn't seem to say the results are conclusive of anything. I'm guessing the low fodmap diet should help seal any leaky gut I have, but Ive already been on the diet for several months. Since I'm a graduate student (who loves all the work I get to do!), I do not have tons of extra money to run every test, but I also want to get to the root cause of the amenorrhea. I love your podcast, and am very happy I discovered it!

Kevin: Hi Dr. Cabral, My name is Kevin and I was wondering if you could give me some advice on how nutrition should look like for gaining muscle, but consuming foods that are good for my health. I competed in my first bodybuilding show last fall and I am now back on a gaining cycle. During my previous bulking cycle I was eating a lot of foods that helped me gain weight, but were not necessarily the best for my overall health. I want to keep competing and adding me more muscle, but not on the expense of my internal health. I am stuck between a rock and hard place trying to gain weight, but having a clean diet that cuts out sugar, wheat, and processed food 90% of the time. I only allow myself one cheat meal a week. With my body type leaning towards the ectomorph, combined with some mesomorph, I am having a hard time putting on mass. Any suggestions you may have would be truly appreciate. You are somebody I look up to and want to model for my personal life and career. Thank you very much sir.

Anonymous: Hi Dr Cabral, Really appreciate your work and have become so much more knowledgeable after discovering your podcast. My question is regarding LINZESS, I have been battling GI issues (constipation, gas, bloating) for 6 years now. I have tried so many diets, detoxes and supplements including the Candida protocol over those years and nothing seemed to work until I was prescribed LINZESS. Since starting Linzess all my symptoms seemed to disappear. Do you have an idea why this drug has been so successful ? I would prefer to take a more natural approach to healing in the future. Thanks much!

Alex: Hi Dr. Cabral - I have a question about overheating at night. For the past year or so I have been waking up very hot in the middle of the night (but not sweating, I do not typically sweat heavily when exercising either). I have updated my bedding (per your recommendations in previous podcasts), and have kept a bedroom temperature of 62-65 degrees through the winter. When I get into bed, I am usually chilly but wake up a few hours later almost every night throwing off the sheets and extremely warm. I'm relatively healthy... I took the Food Sensitivity test last year and have eliminated all high sensitivity foods and also completed the CBO protocol after taking the Organic Acids Test. Any ideas what could be causing the elevated temperatures at night? Thanks in advance!

Brandon: Dr. Cabral, I’ve cleaned up all of my personal care products including deodorant, soap, and toothpaste. BUT, I can’t find a hair product similar to a hair fiber (my hair is really fine and looks like a frizzy mess if I don’t put anything on it) that is organic, free of unknown ingredients and fragrance. Any tips on finding something like this? Also I’m looking for a shampoo as well.

Elizabeth: Hello Stephen and colleagues. I am 64 and have been struggling with bothersome skin issues on my face for decades. I have always had acne, not severe but unattractive. In my 40s I developed some mild dermatitis and now Rosecia. At times, like right now,  I experience all 3. I know my digestion isn’t great. Based on a tendency to inflammatory issues (mild IBS, post nasal drip, joint issues)I follow a paleo-ish diet and don’t eat wheat and gluten and avoid grains and dairy. My body seems very happy with that. But it hasn’t improved my skin as I had hoped.. Do you have any suggestions as to the cause of my skin issues and what I can do? Thanks for any help you can offer. Cheers, Elizabeth

Cindy: Hello! Do you offer a G.I. Map lab test kit? If so, what is the cost? Is there a link you can send me please? Thank you!! Cindy 

Thank you for tuning into this weekend’s Cabral HouseCalls and be sure to check back tomorrow for our Mindset & Motivation Monday show to get your week started off right!

869: Sugar & Candida, Clean Home Products, Ears Ringing, Worms in Fish, Rotating Diarrhea/Constipation, Cryo, Cervicitis (HouseCall)
25:45

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:

Rosie: I’ve been struggling with Candida for a while now and have recently begun a program in hopes of getting a handle on it. I was wondering what foods you suggest to eat to help aid in the process of getting rid of the overgrowth and what foods you suggest to stay away from. I am currently eating no foods with sugar or starches which has been very limiting. Is there another way?

 

Melody: Hi Dr. Cabral! I found you about a year ago and SO very much appreciate the information you offer on a daily basis. While I feel I am very early on in my journey to improved health and wellness, I want to take as many baby-steps as I can in cleaning up not only my diet, but my home environment as well. My question today is centered around general household products. I’ve already tackled filtered water (both drinking and in the shower), and want to move on to gradually removing other toxic items that I may be unknowingly using on a daily or weekly basis. Can you offer your “top 5 or top 10” areas to tackle regarding home cleaning products, laundry detergents, fabric softeners, candles and home fragrance plug-ins (which I just recently learned are both no-no’s), etc. Any guidance and/or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

 

Zach: Hi Dr. Cabral, I am suffering from tinnitus that is unrelenting. I haven't noticed any hearing loss but over the past several months I've been battling this constant ear ringing and it seems like there is no hope. I am only 22 and I am afraid that I'm going to have to deal with this for the rest of my life. Any time I try to sit in a peaceful quiet space or try to meditate I end up being even more stressed out by this annoying ring in my ears. I have not yet seen a doctor for this but I intend to very soon. I hope that you can lend some advice because I am not sure what to do at this point. I want to make meditation part of my routine but being reminded of this condition makes it hard to relax. Thank you!

 

Vrajhi: Hello Dr Cabral. thank you so much for what you do. I recently read an article about wild fish containing parasites/worms. I do not care for purchasing farm raised fish, but this does make me a little apprehensive about buying wildcaught. I love sushi and would prefer to eat only on the coast, but once or twice a year may eat it in TX. What are your thoughts on this? 

Kristine: Hi Dr. Cabral, I am dealing with a lot of gut issues after a severe bout of viral gastroenteritis while traveling in Spain in July of 2017 (let's just say it was 10 days of having to use the bathroom 50+ times a day). 9 months later, I still go back and forth between diarrhea and constipation, have constant painful bloating, and sharp pains in my lower abdomen after I eat. I have seen a gastroenterologist, who ordered several tests (celiac, TSH, sed rate, CBC, CRP, comprehensive metabolic panel, c.diff, and stool calprotectin as well as stool cryptosporidium & giardia). Everything has come back negative/normal. At this time, I cannot afford to see an alternative medicine practitioner as my insurance will not cover that. I have begun taking probiotics and digestive enzymes about 3 weeks ago which have been helping with the abdominal pain as well as being very beneficial for the anxiety I have developed due to this; however, I want to get down to the root of the problem so the constant diarrhea/constipation cycle and bloating will go away. Do you think I should go back to my gastroenterologist and order any more tests (perhaps organic acids or IgG food allergy testing) or what would you recommend at this point? I maintain a mostly plant based diet with very little to no refined sugar or processed foods, I do yoga and moderate intensity exercise regularly, but no lifestyle change has seemed to be able to fix my issue. Thank you so much in advance, Kristine

Cynthia: My husband has recently tried cryogenics - his golf buddies are all doing it. And he says he does feel better after. I prefer to check these things out first, what is your opinion on cryogenics? Is it like taking Advil, a bandaid for inflammation?

Emily: Hi Dr. Cabral - I’m a 26 years old female. My doctor recently told me I have cervicitis as I have been experiencing admoninal pain. How can I treat it without going on antibiotics? Thanks in advance for your help

866: How to Fix a Slow Metabolism (Root Causes) (WW)
33:44

My goal is to help people to understand that feeling sluggish, having brain fog, and not being able to lose weight are not "calorie in, calorie out" issues...

Metabolic issues almost always stem from a hormonal or toxicity-based imbalance...

This explains why some people can eat two to three thousand more calories than someone else their same size, but yet they don't gain weight...

865: The 4 Ways to Fix Your Sleep Cycle (TWT)
28:23

When trying to achieve your wellness, weight loss, or anti-aging goals there aren't too many lifestyle factors that should concern you more than getting good quality sleep...

This doesn't just mean being able to fall asleep within a few minutes of your head hitting the pillow, but it also concerns your ability to get into a deep restorative sleep and stay there...

The problem is that most people have never been told that dysfunctional sleeping usually signals that there's a hidden underlying root cause for this imbalance...

863: Bulimia, Potato Diet, PCOS Test, CD4 Immune Cells, Denmark Delivery, Kombucha, Feet Burning (HouseCall)
26:10

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!

Michelle: Hello Dr Cabral, I’ve listened to almost every one of your podcasts and find them excellent. I am a bit of a complex case & am seeking your advice. I am based in Australia. I have been suffering from bulimia for the past decade (binge purge type) & also use laxatives (only at night to normalise bowel movements within the recommends dose). I currently do not binge purge, only binge eat at night & have an overwhelming urge every night around 2am to binge mindlessly. I am gaining a lot of weight. I try to eat healthy during the day, and maintain an active lifestyle. I also suffer from gastritis and bloating & constipation. I am currently seeking a psychologist to help with my disordered eating. I am 5’1 and around 103 lbs. my lowest weight hasn’t been 90 lbs. I always ate normally when I was younger - 3 meals & was never consumed with food & counting calories. When I was 21, I weighed in at 136lbs and decided to go on a calorie controlled diet - around 1200 a day & some exercise. After 1 year, I lost 36 lbs and was feeling great. Then, these urges to binge & purge took over - like an animal instinct. Since then, I have been in a binge purge cycle. Now I eat around 3000 calories a day, and 2000 of these are at night within 1 hour. Please help. My eating disorder psychologist cannot pint point any emotional triggers - she explained that it developed as a result of Dieting, and my body weight needs to reach a set point. Currently I feel good at 103 lbs, and I do not want to put on any More weight, but my binges at night (no purge) are killing me. Please help. what can i do to normalise my eating, to not eat at 2am & to maintain this weight. I am now 31.

 

Mr. Rivera: It would be great if he could do a podcast giving his opinions on the potato diet.

 

Debbie: Hello doctor Cabral! Being a longtime listener, I trust your opinion very much. I would love to get your advice on the best test to find the underlying cause of PCOS, and what are the best ways to treat it. My doctor just wants to put me on the pill, without any further tests, but I know that’s not gonna do anything about the condition, and only treat the symptoms. Thank you in advance, and thanks for all your amazing health advice!

 

Dan: Hi Stephen! Huge fan of your podcasts and your work. I'm a practitioner from Sydney Aus. In a recent viral related podcast you mentioned low CD4 helper cells, which one of my challenging patients have (low helper : suppressor ratio). Do you see this often? I'm finding nothing I'm doing is shifting it. I know however the patients zinc and copper levels are still low despite supplementation and am wondering if this could cause low CD4? Would love to get your opinion Cheers! 

Christina: Hi there, I live in Denmark and i was just wundering, i am a heath coach, just started my up on my own and i want the best for the people i am gonna help, du you sell you produkt for other people to sell to their clients? i notice that you dont deliver to Denmark, but what if is was for wholesale? i really want good qualities and you are the ONLY ones that i trust so i really hope that you can help me.

Kathryn: I love your podcast, I've been listening to ALL your episodes while I work and everything you say makes sense to me. My naturopathic doctor even says everything you say is spot on. I have a short hopefully simple question. There seems to be a health craze around drinking Kombucha for gut and overall health. I haven't found a lot of research supporting the health claims. What is you're opinion on Kombucha? Is it helpful or harmful to gut health? I love drinking it for the carbonation, I can't drink carbonated water because it hurts my stomach, but Kombucha seems to do just fine. Thank you for all that you do. 

Audra: I have been diagnosed with dactylics by an MRI in my feet. This has lead to being diagnosed with seronegative arthritis. I do have a positive ANA and hashimotos. I wanted to know if you have any knowledge on dactylitis in the feet. Everything I research on this leads to Psoriatic arthritis which I clearly do not have. I have alot of aching in my legs and my feet burn and hurt all over. When I put on shoes my feet start burning. Neuropathy has already been ruled out via nerve test.

862: Returning Yeast, Gut vs. Blood Cleanse, Health Coach, Purple Hands & Feet, DNA Test, De-Bloat, Viral Inflammation (HouseCall)
26:40

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:

Kara: I started your candida and bacteria protocol about 6 weeks ago. All was going well until I stopped using the sacchamices bulardi. I started the second probiotic for about a week and got off because I didn’t feel right.my symptoms returned. So my question is where should I go from here? Can I go back to the first probiotic since it was working? Also, what does that say about what’s going on with me if the first probiotic worked and then my symptoms seemed to return. Thanks

Luke: Hi, I’m wanting to get your opinion on your 7, 14 & 21 day detox plans. Im a 26 year old male who lifts weights at least 4 times a week so I’m not looking to lose much weight but I am looking for a deep detox as I suffer from gut issues so what would you recommend is the best cleanse for that and would it be beneficial for gut health issues?

Kyrsten: Hey I would like to get certified as a nutritionist or a healthy couch. Is there a program that you would recommend?

Rachel: What can I do if I’m always cold? My hand and feet turn purple a lot. Thank you for your work and podcast. I listen often but haven’t made my way through all so not sure if you’ve addressed my questions. Thank you very much!

 

 

John: To whom it may concern, I am interested having a test taken for my apoE genotype and beginning a regimen for heart health. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you soon, -John

 

Lauren: I am emailing in regards for some much needed help and relief (sorry about the lengthy question). I am 22 years old and have been suffering with a few issues since I was young and no one can seem to help me. I have PCOS so I don’t get my period, my hormones are all out of whack, I am constantly bloated in my stomach, I am very heavy/ hold on to a lot of fluid in my arms ( to the point where I feel like a man), I have been diagnosed with IBS, SIBO and can go days without going to the bathroom (although surprisingly they have been good for a few weeks now). I eat very healthy, never eat take out, eat plenty of veggies, try to avoid gluten (never eat bread or pasta), eat wholegrain such as brown rice, quinoa, try to eat spouted nuts/ seeds when I can, make my own raw desserts/ treats so I barely eat packaged things, trying to avoid soy due to my hormones, recently cut down on red meat as I did not enjoy it and felt my body cant process sit but do eat fish. I am extremely active and have been most of my life and usually do at least 45min of exercise daily. I have seen various acupunctures, bowel specialists, gynaecologists, nutritionists, Chinese medicine doctors, reiki practitioners to name a few. I've taken herbal mixes, tablets, medicines, oils, ultrasounds (internal and external), colonoscopy, stool tests, laxatives (they don't do anything), upping my fibre, removing soy, dairy and gluten but nothing seems to work. I have a high tolerance for pain but lately I am just sick of feeling and looking bloated everyday. It doesn’t matter what I eat or what time of day I constantly feel like I have a baby and am super swollen. I feel that my body does not absorb anything and as a result I am always super tired due to my body trying to break down food/unbloat. As I do not get a period I feel my body holds on to a lot and it doesn’t matter how much exercise I do I cant seem to slim these arms or unbolt them. Sometimes I literally want to get a pin and use it as relief to de-bloat my stomach and remove the weight in my arms. I have gotten to the point where I almost want to give up but I was listening to a podcast and heard Doctor Stephen Cabral on it and thought I would give the last bit of hope in me to him and his team. I have no idea where to go from here. Sorry for the overload in information I thought it would be easier to give you a lot so you could see where I was at. Thank you for your time.

 

Leslie: Hello from London! I am a recently-qualified Nutritional Therapist and absolutely love your podcast. Your dedication and enthusiasm give me hope that our profession can truly help people heal. Thank you so much for sharing your vast knowledge, I learn something new every time I listen! I'm writing in regards to a 10 yr old boy suffering from what has been diagnosed as status migrainous - or side-locked headache. His symptoms are: - very bad headache on left side of head that comes and goes - extreme tenderness across the entire area of the trigeminal nerve - sometimes he can't even have his face touched - extreme fatigue - a very heavy feeling in his head - stuffed sinuses They have done various tests, including an MRI, and have ruled out many other conditions. They have tried him on many medications - including very strong anti-inflammatories, antibiotics, occipital nerve block, steroid injection, anticonvulsives, hyperhydrosis and oxygen therapy. Nothing has made any difference. He has been suffering now for almost 8 weeks. Doctors are beginning to offer psychological services as they say he may have to live with this pain indefinitely! The headache started after an extreme bout of stress due to high pressure training at a professional football club (soccer). He was pulled out of the program in November, and by the beginning of January came down with a very bad virus he just couldn't seem to shake. His mother still believes he is suffering from the virus as he still has extreme fatigue and runny / stuffy nose. My intuition is that his immune system was under enormous stress due to excessive athletic training, and that EBV or Herpes Zoster could have re-activated itself in the nerve. I asked them to run a check to see if he had EBV and it came back positive for a past infection but not active. It is my understanding that it will only show an active infection at the first exposure - and any re-activation of the virus would show up as IgG and not IgM. I would be so grateful for any input. His parents are beside themselves with worry and are in a lot of distress seeing him in so much pain. Up until 8 weeks ago he was a very healthy, happy active boy. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this very detailed question. As an aside, one reason you are my favourite podcast is that I am originally a Massachusetts native so listening to you in Boston is a real treat for me. As you may have guessed from my name, we have Portuguese heritage in common too. :-) Also, I'd be interested in working as a health coach for you here if you ever need UK support. Thanks again - keep up the great work!

860: The Hidden Cause Behind Chronic Inflammation (TT)
33:06

90% of all dis-eases in the world stem from inflammation...

The problem is that inflammation is not a disease to be treated - It's a symptom of something much deeper going wrong inside the body...

Inflammation should serve as a signal that there is an imbalance within the body that is causing the immune system to work on overdrive...

Today on the #CabralConcept 860 we'll do deep dive on explaining one of the main hidden causes behind chronic inflammation that almost nobody talks about - Enjoy the show!

859: How & Why You Should Make the Move to 3 Meals a Day (WW)
29:55

Before I knew why eating more frequently wasn't good for me, I used to consume 6 meals per day...

When I was trying to "bulk up" that would consist of 3 large meals and 3 snacks or "protein shakes..."

Then, when I was looking to "cut up" and get leaner I would eat 5-6 small meals throughout the day...

Although this did work for body transformation it certainly is not the best formula for overall peak health or longevity...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 859 to discover how and why you should make the move to 3 meals a day - Enjoy the show!

856: Estrogen Acne, Best Stool Test, Ayurvedic Smoothies, Allergy Protocol, Parasite Cleanse, Low Immunity, ACV & Shingles, Acne Scars (HouseCall)
26:26

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!

Mia: I have been struggling with bad acne on my neck jawline and chin. I’m taking estroblock 2 times per day I’m pretty healthy. Also I am 27 years old and I am so tired 10 days before mensturation! So very tired, brain fog and acne before my period. Do you ever suggest progesterone cream before period? 

Mark: Hi Dr Cabral. Why don't you use the GI-MAP GI Microbial Assay Plus Stool Test? I've heard that it is the best parasite checking stool test on the market because it use DNA analysis. Would love your thoughts.

Nina: Hi Dr Cabral - LOVE LOVE LOVE your show, i was recently introduced through an Ayurvedic podcast I listen to where you were a speaker. What i love is how you mash up ayurvedic, TCM, and other functional medicine areas to address health. As it should be! I have found so much wisdom in Ayurveda to address a bout of insomnia 2 years back where dr's were pushing sleep meds and I fortunately found holistic health, and of course discovered nothing is 'just' insomnia, etc etc. Have come a long way and incorporated different healthy practices into a blended approach that fits my lifestyle. Am curious your take on something... Ayurveda (at least what I hear and read) seems to frown upon smoothies - lowers agni, hard on digestion etc. What's your take? I see you promote smoothies and now that I am feeling healthier I would like to try them out (will pay attention to digestion etc) but i see them as a great opp to get so much nutrient dense food in one meal! What’s your stance on gluten, even if it’s organic non gmo? Same with org non gmo grains? Non gluten org Oats? I'm a vata pitta so even though i strive for lower carb/sugar, i have some carb at least with lunch and often also with dinner. Finally any Cookware recommendations, i see so many people mention ceramic? Is this type of investment 'worth it'? Trying to balance prioritizing health against managing the budget of course! Many many thanks if you made it this far - i'm busy catching up on the hundreds of episodes of yours I haven't listened to, digging into your wonder fb community, and starting the reading challenge! Bless you! Nina

Jessica: Hello wonderful Doctor Cabral. My mom is about to turn 60, and has been battling sinus infections since I can remember, every winter and spring in particular. A lot of the time she takes antibioitics to help, and they do. (though I keep telling her bad in the long run) She has seasonal allergies and teaches elementary students in a room that is not well ventilated. Lately she has been sick for weeks, out of school with an upper respiratory infection, with wheezing, a heavy chest, and cough when breathing. She is taking inhalers, Albuterol (I think a steroid) (so bad right?!) which also seem to temporarily help. Can you explain why these inhalers mask the issue. What can she do to help this naturally and stop having so many sinus and chest infections? She is ready to get control of her health and get to the bottom of this vs masking the issue w drugs. Thank you!!!

Sydney: Hello!! I have a question regarding the parasite protocol. In the information description it says that following one parasite protocol wasn’t enough to rid the body fully. Was this referring to this cleanse as well? Should I order two of them or is this cleanse long enough to ensure it rids the body of parasites?? Thanks so much :)

Aubrey: I have been sick for months it feels like. I have recently gone through a very stressful situation in my personal life and I am wondering if this could trigger bad health and a poor immune system? Since Christmas I have had influenza twice, 2 different stands. A couple week after that I was hit with strep along with an ear infections and then I was hit with a nasty stomach bug that put me out for a couple days. I am now dealing with what feels like a sinus infections. I typically eat a plant based diet, and I am very active. Although being sick has made that harder, but I have two little ones who are 4 years old and 2 years old who depend on me. So I don’t have much of a choice than to push through things! I can feel my body breaking down on me and I am searching for any support to boost my immune system, as well as to help aid in this stressful life situation I am currently experiencing. I am wondering if your Candida protacal would be a good first step to helping my body or if you have any other suggestions. I am open to about anything that is out thereright now! I love your podcast and what you are doing to help bless so many lives! Thank you for all you do!

Anissa: I need to figure out what is going on with my body. I've had my second outbreak of shingles on my face since January. I just drank the mixture of ACV recommended and my stomach is upset. Is there a lesser strength I can take and still be results? Many thanks. Anissa

Holly: Hi Doctor Cabral, I just found your site and podcast and couple weeks ago and can’t believe how awesome you are and all the interesting information you provide. I am 25 and struggle with acne and pitted rolling acne scars. I am struggling with the scars and how to get rid of them and was wondering if you can help. Much thanks.

855: Mentorship, Pet Health, H. Pylori Test, Leukemia, Diastastis, Thalassemia, Exercise Ball Seat (HouseCall)
26:35

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:

Lindsay: Hello Dr. Cabral and Staff, I am a third year naturopathic medical student at Bastyr University in San Diego and I am writing to ask if Dr. Cabral would be my mentor. I'm certain he receives similar requests all the time, but let me tell you why mine is unique. I am married with 3 young children. My husband and I gave up a comfortable life in Colorado because we saw too much preventable suffering in the people around us and wanted to devote our lives to helping people get better. I, like Dr. Cabral, am motivated to reach masses of people, not because I am chasing wealth, but because I have a sense of urgency to reach a broad audience so that people who are suffering can find help before it's too late for them. For this reason, I want to hit the ground running when I graduate next spring. I would treasure the opportunity to observe the operational aspect of Dr. Cabral's clinic. If I can learn what's working for him, then I can spend less time reinventing the wheel and more time helping people. If it is possible for me to visit your clinic, even just for one day, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this message, and thank you even more for all you do each day to reach people in need. Sincerely, Lindsay

Michelle: I just heard Dr. Cabral on Joyce's Plant Based Nutrition Summit. She mentioned that Dr. Cabral healed his Addison's Disease. My little spitz terrier dog, Spooky (about 16 pounds) has had Addison's for about 4 years. I was wondering what Dr. Cabral did to cure his Addison's and is it translatable for dogs. I give Spooky a monthly 6 ml shot of Percorten and a daily 1/3 tab of 5 mg Prednisone. Hate polluting him with these but he is doing well but still would prefer a more natural way if possible. Thank you

 

Kate: Dear Dr Cabral team, Quick question. Is the fruit and vegetable blend safe to take in pregnancy? I am already working with a functional doctor, who has recommended some supplements, but I would like this in addition. Best, Kate

Staci: Dr. Cabral: Do you have a test that will check for H.pylori in the stomach? I have recently been diagnosed with a stomach ulcer and since I rarely take ibuprofen or Aleve and I don’t consume alcohol on a regular basis, I read where H.Pylori can be a factor. Also, can underlying stress cause an ulcer or enhance the symptoms of an ulcer? Thank you for your help, Staci

Deborah: Thank you for all you do to help people have better health and a better life! My grandmom-in-love (69 years old) has atypical leukemia; its a myeloid disorder (MDS/MPN). Her doctors started her with the Chemo pill-Hydrea and she is currently under a Dacogen treatment. She’s struggled with Hashimotos for years because of her thyroid. She’s had low energy and thyroid problems for decades. She has cellulitis on her thigh, back, ankle, and stomach. She is sensitive and had adverse reactions to all medications she’s been under. How would we be able to rebuild her immune system and detox her body from all the chemo she’s been under? What info do you need so we can help my grandmom? I believe you can help with her horrid “dis-ease.” The doctors don’t know how long she has to live. The best they hope for is her body will go into remission and she will be for 2 more years. I hope to see her live for another 15 years. I look forward to hearing back! I had submitted this question to the support group and they gave me some good suggestions but also recommended submitting my question as a HouseCall. Thank you! 

Josh: My sister is a 40 year old Mother of three. She can’t seem to shake some pesky stomach weight . After visiting multiple specialists, in committing to a personal trainer, the doctors have told her that she has diastisis recto and the only Way for her to get a flat stomach again. Is to get plastic surgery. Is this true? 

Kelly: When I was a teenager my doctor said that I had a condition where my red blood cells were irregularly shaped and I would always need to take iron supplements. Is this considered thalassemia? I frequently have low iron levels on traditional blood tests but have never had had any other low results- like low oxygen bind capacity. I used to take iron pills regularly but then read that this can be dangerous and lead to iron overload and brain issues. Over the past few years since I stopped taking iron, I have had puzzling symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, shortness of breath (which becomes more acute when I think I can't breathe), panic-y feelings connected to what I believe are heart palpitations after eating or when lying down, and rarely a feeling of doom and disconnect from reality and rare fainting. Although these symptoms may sound overwhelming, I am absolutely functional but consider myself highly sensitive and aware to bodily changes. Do any of these symptoms correspond to untreated anemia? I have tried to balance out my calcium, magnesium, sodium, and potassium on my own through mineral supplementation. If I take iron pills and never have too high iron on blood tests, is it safe to say that I am at no risk of iron toxicity/overload? Thank you, Dr. Cabral!

Lance: Hello Doctor Cabral. I understand that you have multiple years experience in musculoskeletal strengthening, alignment, and mobility exercises. A few of my coworkers have replaced their office chairs with exercise balls. We sit multiple hours a day documenting on our computers. They say only good things about the switch. I am skeptical and have been doing research on the idea. I see arguments from both sides as realistic and I am still torn. What are your thoughts on the potential benefits or complications that can be caused by doing this?

I know in the health & fitness field we can fall into a lot of the "he said, she said" battles of whose idea is right or wrong, but under it all there are certain truths that we must all understand...

It's fine to debate the specific details of nutrition such as keto vs. Paleo, or exercises that are best to "tone your glutes," but what I'm more concerned with is helping people to build a strong foundation that will stand the test of time...

851: A 100-Year Old Forgotten Form of Healing Revived (TWT)
29:24

World War I and II brought a halt to many great innovations of that time, but maybe none more so than in natural medicine...

About 100 years ago numerous forms of "alternative medicine" were being studied, researched, and verified, as well as being proven with patients in the real world...

The problem was that conventional medicine was just beginning its surge and stranglehold on the way that we are allowed to "diagnose and treat disease..."

Therefore, many of these amazing forms of natural healing (although rooted in science) were forgotten or at least marginalized to the point that the general public never heard about them again...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 851 to re-discover with me one of those 100-year old forgotten forms of healing that is now making a resurgence - Enjoy the show!

849: Ayurvedic Dosha Assessment Errors, Afternoon Cravings, Costochondritis, Smoking Cessation, Children's Stomach Pain, Swollen & Painful Breast (HouseCall)
25:06

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!

Annie: Hi Dr. Cabral! Huge thanks for all you do and all the free help/advice you offer. I have been binge listening to your podcast over the past couple of weeks. I have really enjoyed how you integrate Ayurveda into your practice. I recently ordered my first 14-day detox and anticipate awesome results! My question is: could you talk about weight gain for Vata/pitta body types? I’m a Vata-Pitta (very thin wrists and ankles, a little broader shoulders, dry skin/hair, bloating and constipation) and have carried extra fat on my belly since around age 8 (I’m 24 now). It looks strange on my body as I am otherwise quite bony and lean. I eat clean and exercise regularly. Could this be excess Vata? I feel it’s not Kapha as it does not change with my diet or exercise and is in such a specific area. Would really appreciate any suggestions as it’s very frustrating and makes me feel insecure - I mean who doesn’t want a flat stomach? Thanks in advance!

Elizabeth: Hi Dr Cabral. I love your show and all the valuable information you provide! My question is about afternoon snacking... I find that I eat healthy, whole nutritious foods for the beginning part of my day, but when 3pm rolls around I am ravenous and reach for anything I can get my hands on. It feels like my brain shuts off it’s wellness meter and I get caught up in the moment. I wouldn’t say it’s a binge because it’s not a lot of food... but it definitely feels like a lack of control. Why does this happen? Is there something I should be doing earlier in the day to prevent this? Thanks!

Gabriella: Hi Dr. Cabral, First off, thank you for sharing your work and for sharing it with us. I have a question regarding what I was told was pain that started from a virus. The pain in my chest on the left side by my heart. My GP felt the area and told me it was text book costochondritis and that the virus that’s caused it was probably long gone but that the inflammation was still around. He told me to take three Advil a day until the pain went away. I usually refrain from taking Advil especially that much. I was wondering if you had another solution. Thank you, GP

Donna: This is somewhat urgent. I’ve been a smoker for over 30 years struggling to completely quit. I’m getting ready to take advantage of your CBD Oil offer for March. Will this help me and do you have a protocol or suggestions for quitting smoking? I have been using the DNS for seven months, completed a 7 day detox, and ready to do a 21 day detox. I eat healthy, exercise and in good health except slightly elevated cholesterol. I will eventually do some testing but need to end this habit now. I prefer this question not be on a podcast or could this be addressed in a most general way as to addiction. If you could help me through a personal email I would greatly appreciate it. Otherwise I would like to be anonymous. Thank you so much,

Joel: Dr Cabral, my four year old has been complaining of stomach pain just left of his belly button for about 3 months. He originally had a “stomach bug” in November for a few days in which he vomited and wasn’t feeling well. Afterwards he’s continued to complain on average 3 times a day of just general stomach pain. In January he had an incident where he was writhing in pain. We took him to the ER by the time we arrived he said he felt fine. We eat overall pretty healthy Paleo style diet with organic foods overall. I can’t tell if it’s stress or if he’s really got something going on there. I’ve noticed his anxiety increase (gut/brain Or perhaps craving attention cuz we have a 7 month old that takes a lot of our attention noe too). He poops once a day and they are normal. His appetite is normal as well. Would you recommend rotation diet? Could you give a 4 year old CBD? Would you still run an organic acids/allergy test? How would you do a 21 day Cabral detox with a 4 year old? Thanks! Joel

Woody: Hi, I'm interested in working with your advisory services. Briefly, 65, healthy, no meds, 180, 6 ft. PSA went from 3 to 6. MRI/biopsy Gleason 7. Urologist wants to destroy. Been following podcasts for awhile, done some research. Overseas business trip mid April through early May and putting off decision. Using Nutraceuticals and intermittent and longer fasting.

Jai: Hi Stephen, 3 questions: My girlfriend gets headaches a lot when she is on her period, if she lacks sleep and when stressed, what can we do to prevent this? She also gets swollen breast that are painful to the touch. Yes, she takes birth control. And finally, she has lost about 50 lbs, and would like to lose an additional 10-15 more. She works out 4-5x per week at 45 min each, eats 3-4 balanced meals (protein, fat, carb and veggie), she drinks 1/2 her bodyweight in water or more daily. She is a CNA 4 3rd shifts per month and outside of exercise and the extra activity from being a CNA she is sedentary. She cannot break 139.8 lbs at 5'4" and endomorph body type. What would you suggest? Thanks.

Thank you for tuning into this weekend’s Cabral HouseCalls and be sure to check back tomorrow for our Mindset & Motivation Monday show to get your week started off right!

848: Vasectomy Risks, Digestive Itchiness, Zinc Testimonial, BP Symptoms, Dientamoeba, Exercise on CBO Protocol (HouseCall)
26:38

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:

Hayley: Hi Dr Cabral, I would love an opinion about vasectomies. I have read many men suffer side effects following the procedure, which isn't really talked about. Are there longterm hormonal implications from interfering with the normal flow of things down there? Thanks so much!

 

Lizbeth: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you for all the knowledge that you keep sharing through your podcasts. I will forever be grateful to everything I am learning through your podcast! I finally decided to purchase the CBO protocol! What made me make the final decision was getting a skin reaction after a dinner at a work-related event that I had to attend. None of my co-workers had it, and so I figured my body is definitely asking me to take care of this situation once and for all. I have always had a weak digestive system, but never had I experience rashes because of food consumption. These rashes also made me feel hot in those specific areas where the rash was happening. It did itch but I was not able to see any type of bump caused by it, only red skin. And I still get the itchy sensation after eating most meals. I do follow a very healthy diet, organic produce and meats, and Mediterranean style as you have suggested in other podcasts. Also, after that meal I suddenly gained a couple of pounds, and I can tell I am inflated because of how my watch and rings feel. I do have to say your team was extremely helpful in helping me make a choice to start at least with the CBO, and they suggested I contacted you as well to have a better idea of whether there are more steps I need to take besides the CBO Protocol. I have had h pylori in the past, and I have been concerned whether I have it again or no. I have listened to your how to leak a leaky gut in the past, as well as the one on food poisoning and H pylori, but I still can really put down the proper timeline of the products that I need to heal my body because I think I may need the intestinal cleanse. I know your upcoming book will have this info, but I would much rather not wait. I would think (for what I have heard you say) that I need the Healthy Belly, digestive enzyme, the intestinal cleanse and the CBO protocol, but for instance the CBO protocol already has the healthy belly and I have no idea if that bottle is all I need. Could you help me and guide me on whether or not I need an intestinal cleanse to heal my gut and the timeline on how to heal my digestive system? Thanks for your advice! 

 

Anonymous: Stephen, thanks for your uplifting and informative podcasts! I get a lot of value from them. First I need to add a testimonial to your “super-nutrient of the week,” zinc, that you discussed on the March 2, 2018 podcast: I had extensive plantar warts on my toes for decades. I tried virtually all OTC remedies and liquid nitrogen at the MD’s office and none of these worked. Finally a dermatology PA suggested I try oral zinc along with my OTC topical remedy. Having decided by experience the OTC topicals were useless, and the zinc dose she suggested was high (400 mg) the literature cites up to 600 mg/day, I took (only) like 200 mg zinc per day for several weeks. My decades-long infection with plantar warts went away. I went off the supplemental zinc and the infection did not recur. This personal nutritional medicine outcome is why I listen to your podcast. You can find scientific studies showing effectiveness of Zn on Pubmed for example, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11952542 “Oral zinc sulphate in the treatment of recalcitrant viral warts: randomized placebo-controlled clinical trial.” However you won’t find Zinc supplement in the plantar wart department at your drug store. Despite its effectiveness its use doesn’t seem to be widespread. Zinc may have some special properties for viral infections, for example production of antiviral interferon. See http://piel-l.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/Zin-en-verrugas-virales.pdf (You might be interested in the authors’ acknowledgement of the limitations of blood trace element analysis in diagnosis) Now, on to my question. (I’m hoping a naturopathy based therapy might help for my other medical problems) I’m 64 and suffered a heart attack about 12 years ago and had a stent implanted in my right coronary artery, Then I immediately changed my diet to a healthy plant based one, and also do a moderate exercise program 5+ days a week and often do mindfulness meditation. For 95% of the 12 years since I have taken statins, blood pressure medicine and aspirin. My BMI is good, all blood based testing is good, except lipids if off the statin. I drink alcohol moderately. Since the heart attack I also have ED and pain/stiffness in calf muscles when walking. I also get some swelling in my ankle sometimes if walking or standing for a length of time. I also have some degree of plantar fasciitis Conventional medicine has me diagnosed with peripheral artery disease, based on ankle/wrist blood pressure ratio. I’m a little skeptical of this because many people show similar patterns in these pressures and are asymptomatic. My cardiologist doesn’t think I am at a high risk for another heart attack. Generally I feel great. I’ve recently gone off my statin to see if my calf stiffness problem will go away. So far no luck. While they were OK with an experiment, the MDs highly recommend staying on the statin. I think the literature overall indicates statins help reduce the likelihood of a second cardiovascular event, but it’s not like a silver bullet. My blood pressure is not terrible without the medication so I could go off it temporarily, or permanently if a natural method would give adequate reduction. Could you recommend a course of action that might help identify and treat the underlying cause(s) and symptoms? Are the symptoms all the result of a systemic vascular disease? What would you recommend? I did hear you mention cayenne, ginger and argenine that might help my condition but you didn’t mention how much. I am sure there are many people with a similar set of symptoms. What do you think of Nobel prize winner Dr. Ignaro’s recommendation of argenine, citrulline, Vitamin C, E, folate, and lipoic acid? (published in “NO more heart disease” 2005) Thanks so much for any comments and keep up the great work!!!

Peta: Hello, My name is Peta, I'm 28 and live in Australia. I'm wondering if you would recommend I do a lab test first or go straight to one of your detoxes. My main concern was acne, and being tired a lot of the time. Acne is at it's worst before my menstrual cycle (so maybe hormonal?) It is a lot better when I eat good fats and reduce sugar intake. However the past few months my bowel movements have changed - constipation and then diarrhoea and acne has worsened. My DR ran a blood test. Results say A mild thrombocytopenia (not sure what that is). Stool test detected Dientamoeba - the doctor said they are not sure if this is causing my symptoms and has prescribed antibiotics. Is this the best option? I am yet to take them. Thank you, Peta 

Kathryn: Hi Dr. Cabral, I listen to your podcast every week after someone from my yoga teacher training told me about it. I find myself relating strongly to the questions from your house calls that deal with digestive issues. You always have the same advice, do the Candida & Bacterial Complete Protocol. My question is when is the best time to start this? for some back ground information about me (I'll try to keep it short) I'm 33 years old and have had digestive issues for the better part of 5 years. For the first two years of this I would get sick almost every time I ate, I was advised by doctors and dietitians to only eat what I didn't have a reaction to which was almost everything. I was also told to eat chicken and eggs to get nutrients I might have been missing. for most of 2 years I had every medical test done to check my gallbladder, my stomach, and intestines but the only thing found was legions on my stomach and an increased number of mast Cells in my stomach. my Doctor theorized I had an over active immune system called Mast Cell Activation Syndrome. I was put on medication and told again not to eat anything that I had a reaction to. I mostly ate potatoes and eggs for a year but saw no improvement. I eventually took my health in my own hands and became a plant based vegan eating mostly fruit. This helped a lot and the occurrence of my digestive problems reduced dramatically. I did this for about 6 months and started training for ironman triathlons which had been a dream of mine. My coach said I needed to eat a mostly high fat diet, I tried this for a a few weeks but my symptoms returned. in the last 2 years I've stayed plant based vegan, but now I eat a more balanced diet consisting of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and starchy vegetables. it comes out to about 10-15% protein, 25-30% fat, and the remaining carbohydrates in the form of fruit or starchy vegetables. I've been seeing a naturopath for the past year and have done an organic acids test and food sensitivity test. As well as numerous blood tests to check nutrient levels and hormone levels. I never eat foods that I have a severe or moderate reaction to according to the food sensitivity test and very rarely eat foods that I have a mild reaction to and when I do it's in very small amounts. The organic acids test showed that under yeast and fungal markers Arabinose, Carboxycitric, and Tricarballyllic are high being 50, 35, and .76 respectively. Under Bacterial markers Hippuric and 2-Hydroxyphenylacetic were high at 575 and .76. My naturopath suggested Candida and SIBO but instead of advising on how to treat it because I was in the midst of Ironman Training has instead been trying to correct my low nutrient levels with supplements even though I'm not absorbing them well despite sticking to my whole food lifestyle. I literally never have a cheat meal or day. I experience diarrhea and nausea about once or twice a week still and would really like to put my digestive problems behind me for good. Right now I'm taking a Heart Burn medicine for inflammation in my stomach, St. John's Wort, HPA Stress Adapt, 10,000 IU Vitamin D3, Iron, and Liquid Vitamin B Complex, and probiotic. I'm again heavy in ironman training so I'm reluctant to start the protocol while training 12-15 hours a week. what amount of exercise do you recommend while doing the protocol? Is it an violable option for me during training? or would I need to reduce my exercising until I finish the protocol? I really appreciate your podcast and will be bringing this up to my naturopath the next time I see her. Thank You, Kathryn

846: Find Out Your Total Toxic Load (Quiz) (TT)
31:34

I had never heard of the term "Total Toxic Load" or "Total Body Burden" until about 12 years ago when I was re-discovering the ancient Eastern practices of detoxifying the body...

What was interesting to me is that no matter what form of medicine you study such as Functional Medicine, Ayurvedic Medicine, Bioregulatory Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, etc. (except conventional medicine ; ) you'll find that ALL of them use detoxification as a cornerstone for helping people get well...

But the question is, how do you know how many toxins you may be holding onto if they are inside of you and not able to be seen?

Luckily, there's a Functional Medicine quiz we use in my practice that can show you very simply what your total body burden is based on your current symptoms...

845: What No One Ever Tells You About Losing Weight (WW)
29:01

Did you know that there are actually 3 main "levels" of weight loss and that depending on where you fall within those levels that the type of nutrition and exercise will vary greatly?

The truth is that the plan to help someone lose the last 10 lbs is drastically different than the blueprint for losing 50-100 lbs...

The trick is to know what is holding you back from ultimately achieving the body and health you desire and then following the proven plan to get you there...

844: The Right & Wrong Way to Enjoy a Cheat Meal (TWT)
28:10

I'm a big proponent of never having to say goodbye forever to some of your favorite foods - even if they don't make the "healthy food list..."

The problem is that the key to keeping your body and mind healthy is not moderation, but instead balance...

And this means that you must first rebalance the body and get it firing on all cylinders before you begin to introduce a regular once or twice a week "cheat meal" (we'll also discuss "alternative word phrasing")...

843: How Not to Hold Yourself Back from Your Goals (MM)
25:39

Sometimes in my practice I see people stuck - They don't know what they're doing wrong, and for whatever reason they can't seem to "catch a break..."

However, from an outsider looking in, and as someone that's suffered quite a bit from poor (mental & physical) health earlier in their life I can see where they're going wrong...

But, even if I'm able to articulate it to them, it often times doesn't resonate and this is simply because it clashes with their current belief systems...

The problem is that although your beliefs up to this point have gotten you to where you are now (both good and bad) they most likely will not take you to the next level you seek...

842: Rain Water Collection, Thinning Hair, Esophageal Cancer, CBD Digestion, Child Seizures, Fatigue Testing, Pyroluria Test, Healthy Gut Protocol (HouseCall)
26:28

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!

Hayley: Hi Dr Cabral, thanks for all that you do! I've listened to your recommendations on water filters and alkalising water. However I have a question about rain water. I live in rural Australia where we have a rainwater tank for our drinking water. I know rainwater in naturally acidic... is this necessarily a "bad thing"? Ours is around pH6. I know it's not the acidity of the food/ drink that's the issue, it's the way our body responds and processes it. If you think rainwater would be too acidic, how can we rectify it? Would a pinch of (aluminium-free) bicarb do the trick, or would that have other negative implications? Thanks!

Susanne: Hi! I am interested in sorting out my health, Im struggling with fatigue, anxiety, stomach problems and thining hair. I am a 26 year old woman. However, I live in Spain. Is it possible to take the health tests from Spain? With shipment and legislation and everything. In advance, thanks for replay. Kind regards, Susanne 

Anonymous: Hello Dr. Cabral, I was recently diagnosed with Esophageal cancer. The PetScan says it has not metastasized and that it is at the base of the esophagus. My questions are many:

#1. How did I get this? We have no family history of any cancer; my job is like most people these days basically typing onto a computer screen and on the phone all day. I work out of my home. I am considered an obese 56 year old male at 6'1'' and 235 lbs. Now I am down 25+ lbs. to 209 so am simply considered overweight. I have never smoked, only drink alcohol occasionally and have a relatively healthy diet consisting of no soda or junk food, good home cooked meals, occasional sweets, espressos and teas. I have been on and off at the gym over the years as it never seems to produce results.

#2. What can I do from a naturopathic angle to fight this cancer?

#3. Understanding everyone is different and you cannot diagnose my specific case, is radiation, chemo and surgery the only answer? I watched "Cancer Can Be Killed" on Amazon last night and they discuss "Hyperthermia," "Ozone Therapy" and naturopathic dietary alternatives that sound a lot better than the traditional big 3.

#4. How proven are these other modalities? If I was your brother or father what would you suggest? Thanks for all you do Doctor!! Hoping you can provide some answers sooner than later, Anonymous

Travee: I have been taking your CBD oil for 25 days now . It gives me indigestion. I rarely get indigestion. Is there anything I can do for that Oh and I love, love, love your podcast. I am learning so much and slowly getting healthier

Jenett: Hi Dr. Cabral, My friends son is a little over a year old and has been suffering in and off, from seizures. He has not had vaccinations so she's ruled that out, but the doctors cannot seem to figure out why he continues to have the seizures. Do you have any ideas as to what can cause this and what she can do about it? Thank you so much for your help. Jenett

Krissy: Hi Dr. Cabral, I am a new follower of your podcast and as a podcast fiend I have many episodes to get through still! I was wondering if you had any recommendations for my current health situation. I've been dealing with gut issues ever since having an infection and taking Cipro while living in Guatemala a few years ago. After returning to Canada I was diagnosed with leaky gut, Hashimotos and have since been treated for Candida, Klebsiella (multiple types), SIBO and various other overgrowths. After my last visit with my ND we agreed it was time for another SIBO treatment, this time making sure to emphasize prokinetics. The issue I have is that every time I start to treat SIBO I get such severe Adrenal Dysfunction.. I wake up during the night and cannot fall back asleep for hours.. and am incredibly fatigued and weak feeling throughout the day... as well having a reduced tolerance for stress. I wonder if this is because the treatment also reduces good bacteria and thus essential nutrients and minerals? Or is it due to a sudden increased ability to produce my own thyroid hormone and now my medication is too high? My ND does not want to test my thyroid levels every week as she thinks they will be all over the place anyways throughout the treatment. Have you ever worked with someone with these symptoms? I appreciate your feedback.

Toni: Hi Stephen! I have been listening to your podcast for a while now and have finally decided to write in. I have just been diagnosed with Pyroluria and undermethelation and couldn't seem to find any information on your podcast search page in regards to both. I am from Australia and not sure if this is a new term for it here or where I should turn to look for more information on the topic. Hopefully you can shine some light on the diagnosis for me! Thank you, Toni 

Christine: Hi, do you still offer the healthy gut protocol (the powder AND probiotic) as a package? I bought it in September and am recommending to a friend but cannot find it. I only see it in your store as sold separately. Thank you.

841: Acid Water, Copper IUD, Camp Fire Cough, Gout, Infertility, Ear Issues (HouseCall)
27:12

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:

Carla: Hi Dr. Cabral, I live in a Canadian city that fluoridates it's water and have been using a table top distiller to make drinking water for the past 5 years. I've been adding mineral drops to the water as I've heard that distilled can leach minerals from your body. Is this true and am I doing enough to make the water safe to drink? I've also heard that distilled water is acidic and also not good to drink for that reason. Unfortunately I rent and can't afford to add special filters to the household system. Thank you very much for any advice you can give! Carla

 

Meghan: Hi Dr. Cabral! I’ve searched through your podcasts for your take on copper toxicity and couldn’t find what I was looking for so here it goes. I had a copper iud in for 10 years and then replaced with another one year ago. I had it taken out today. I’ve been suffering with; brain fog, insomnia, recurring UTIs, bladder urgency, recurring yeast infections (chronic), extreme fatigue, dry skin and most recently - dermal hyperpigmentation above my upper lip out of no where. I’ve been to dozens of specialists and taken countless tests with no help. I’m gluten and dairy free. I’ve tried the candida cleanse and recently your 21 day detox with no results which I know is abnormal. I did the OAT with you and subsequently ordered the yeast protocol from you while waiting for the results because I know I have candida overgrowth. My OBGYN said NONE of this is related to my copper IUD and it couldn’t cause copper toxicity but I just don’t believe it so I decided to have the IUD removed against her recommendation. Do you recommend I do the hair tissue mineral analysis for copper? Will I have any success on the yeast protocol of yours without cleansing myself of the copper? I am so tired of trying everything with such high hopes and then no success. Do you have any recommendations for someone with suspicion of high copper? I know that copper toxicity can cause candida overgrowth and most of my other symptoms as well. Thank you for all you do and looking forward to my coaching session this week to go over my OAT results.

 

Melisa: Seeking your guidance. We have a 3 year old son who at the end of last winter we realised our wood fire was causing him to cough at night, we stopped immediately & the cough went away. Several months later we had a camp fire to cook dinner (forgetting about the cough) and again our son woke at 3am with asthma symptoms & very restricted airways. I have tried using essential oils, diffuser, garlic teas, salt, coconut oil, to open his airways but it has been two nights now where we are awake all night. In the past he has had symptoms the same on two occasions & as his father suffered from serve asthma as a child & can relate to the tight chest & short of breath feeling we have given him an asthma puffer as recommended by a doctor. Can you suggest anything else I can do to quickly open his airways & allow him a nights rest without having to resort to the puffer. Also is it your recommendation to never use wood fires & instead using electric heating if living in a cold climate? Thank you!!!

Cynthia: Hello. Without getting into my whole story...one condition I have is gout. I am curious what your view is. Some say it is a liver issue some say methylation, without knowing the individual do you think there is a common thread? Thank you! 

Anonymous: Hi Dr. Cabral! I recently discovered your podcast and you are amazing! I really enjoy your podcast and have learned a great deal about how functional medicine can help heal the body.

I'm writing based on a severe infertility issue I'm having, so I apologize for the lengthy question. At 37 years old, I was diagnosed with premature ovarian insufficieny (POI), which has been heartbreaking. I'm now 38 years old, 130 lbs, 5'4" and have been trying to conceive my first child. I had a failed IVF cycle and made it all the way to egg retrieval, but unfortunately there were no eggs to retrieve.

I developed this condition fairly quickly , which leads me to believe it can be reversed. At the time of my diagnosis, I had food sensitivities, weird rashes on the side of my stomach, itchy skin, severe bloating and weighed 145 lbs. I also went through extreme stress (moving, job dissatisfaction, money woes, one parent diagnosed with cancer, other parent died unexpectedly).

Currently

-My periods are now irregular (40-72 days)

-FSH reading on two separate cycles were 32 mIU/ml and 27 mIU/ml

-AMH was 0.21 ng/mL

-Extremely low estrogen, progesterone DHEA, testosterone.

At 36 years old, I had a fertility work up and everything was normal

-Regular periods (27-29 days)

-FSH 9 mIU/mL

-AMH 3.8 ng/mL

-Normal estrogen/progesterone.

I do have a history of an autoimmune disorder (mixed connective tissue disorder), and my POI is not due to a genetic mutation. I want to try another cycle of IVF but I'm worried about the low rate of success based on my stats. I've lost all the excess weight and bloat through dietary changes (mainly paleo diet) and walking. What do you suggest I work on leading up to my next IVF cycle? Also any ideas as to why this severe infertility disease happened to me in such a short time? Would you be willing to work with me to help me get back to optimal reproductive health? Thanks!

 

Zach: Hi Steven! I am currently dealing with problems with tinnitus, and strange sensations in the ear that make them sometimes feel plugged, and I am wondering if this is a sinus issue, blood pressure issue, or something else. Also I had my lipid panel done a few months back and everything was fine except my LDL was high. Could the LDL have some sort of connection to this? And what can I do to find out what type of nutrition will work for me to get to optimal health?

836: How to Break the Cycle of Suffering (MM)
24:05

Deep down I have an unsuppressible need to teach people that they are not their disease...

This most likely stems from years of my own previous wellness issues that I used to embody and wear as part of my identity... 

That's why it's so important for me to get you to understand that you are not your autoimmune, migraine, skin, weight, cancer, or other health issue - Instead you are a healthy, strong, vibrant human-being presently struggling to get well...

But, the first step to overcoming dis-ease in any area of your life is that you must dissociate with this current condition and begin to change the persona of the person you've told yourself that you've become...

I know it's not easy, but I fear that without changing your mindset you will never be able to break the cycle of suffering...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 836 for details on how to change your thinking, rewire your neurology for success, and begin to live the life you were meant to have - Enjoy the show!

835: Tonsillitis Recap, Cancer Referral, Pre-Pregnancy Detox, Potato Skins, Milk Alternative, Papulostear Rosacea, Post Nasal Drip Lab Test, Overcoming Fructose Malabsorption, Fix GI Tract (HouseCall)
26:56

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!

Somah: Hi Doctor Cabral, Hope you are well. Your podcasts’ have changed my life. They are so informative. I’ve recommended you and your supplements to anyone who will listen. I take your CBD oil, Vitamin D, Vitamin C and some other things you recommend. I’m a 39 years old female, eat well, exercise often but last year I had about 7 bouts of tonsillitis. The doctors recommended that I get them removed but I’m a bit skeptical. I’ve been on Antibiotics all of last year and even steroids. There has to be another way. Please help. I’m so close to just getting them removed. I have an infection right now. Any information you can offer will be appreciated. Thank you so so much!!

Anonymous: Hello Dr. Cabral and Team, Just received diagnosis on Friday (2-16) of esophageal cancer. It was a complete shock, I am a 56 year old white male, 6'1", was 235 lbs in October and now 210 as of this morning. Unfortunately thought that my inability to swallow was a temporary issue. Have had Barium swallow, endoscopy (biopsy) and CT scan. Results from latter should be back today or tomorrow. Weight loss has accelerated to about 1 lb./day. Started on Ensure yesterday. Tough getting food down. Have been eating cream of wheat with bone broth, Athletic Greens with nut milk, soups, nuts, avocados, etc. Had just started listening to your podcast in January and had ordered your 7 day detox just a few weeks ago. Obviously won't be finishing that off. In process of setting up my team to fight this cancer. Hoping you can help out or point me in the right direction. 

Shannon: Hi Dr. Cabral. My question is regarding where to start in terms of what test to purchase to get a better idea of my personal health status. I'm 33 YO, 5'4", 62.7kg. My weight has not changed in the past 7 years, but my body composition has. I stay very active and eat clean organic foods, limit on the dairy and grains. I recently replaced my black morning coffee with ACV, lemon and sea salt and incorporated a fruit/veggie smoothie. Noticed an instant change; less bloating, no heart palpitations or anxiety. I was thinking of starting with the Organic Acids test, but not too sure. I would also like to complete your 7-day detox, but trying to conceive. What would you recommend? Very grateful for your time, thank you. Shannon

Judy: I read in one of your FAQs that we should not eat the skins of potatoes. Does that include all varieties of sweet potatoes? Why should the skins be avoided? 

Jess: Hi Stephen, Thank you for your incredible podcast! i have a few questions - sorry in advance for the long post what can i do to help acne during pregnancy? i usually do have some skin problems however in the few weeks it has been worse than usual. i just found out i am pregnant (about 6 weeks) so think thats the reason it has gotten so much worse. i am also still breast feeding my toddler (once or twice a day) - so i know a detox is out of the question. what are some other things i can do to help this? Also what would you suggest to use instead of toddler milk/formula when trying to wean? my little one is 19 months old and still had some breastmilk, apart from that he also has a grass fed toddler formula/milk. would you suggest an alternative milk like coconut milk? Thank you so much Jess 

Cristina: Hi Stephen, I am 36 years old woman. Two years ago I developed an autoimmune condition called Hidradenitis Suppurativa. So last year I decided to change my foods habits. I did an intolerance food test and with the diet I am in remission. My diet is gluten free, dairy free, nightshades free. I eat veggies, meats, fish, fruits and nuts. Two months ago I developed Papulostear Rosacea in one of my cheeks. At this moment I don’t understand what’s going on. I have been on a healthy style since January 2017. What’s wrong with me? 

Bill: I have a heavy, constant post-nasal drip. I have listened to Stephen's podcasts and it seems that the appropriate test for me to order is the IGG test. Is that what you would recommend in order to diagnose my problem? 

Ann: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you for addressing my question about fructose malabsorption. About three years ago I began to experience feelings of nausea, gas and diarrhea. I went to see a gastroenterologist and he completed several invasive tests as well as a test for h pylori and SIBO. He told me that I had IBS and to take Prilosec, which I never did. A couple months went by and the diarrhea got really bad. I went back to see the same doctor and told him that something was wrong. He said, “Well I guess we can run a breath test for lactose and fructose”. The test result showed that I have fructose malabsorption. The doctor told me that there is no cure and that I should avoid eating food with fructose in it. Little did I know that a lot of food has this in it with varying amounts. I am fine with not eating sugar, honey, wheat and most fruits but I love all vegetables. I don’t feel as though I am getting a balanced diet because some veggies I can’t eat. Everyday I take a multi vitamin, fish oil, and D3 during winter. Will I ever be able to eat all my favorite veggies and fruits again? Thank you for speaking about a common sense approach to medicine. I have referred many people to your website. Ann

James: My wife is having problem with heartburn and bloating.She is starting the detox this Monday. What else should she do to treat this condition?

834: Motion Sickness, Antibiotic Skin Reaction, Choosing a Lab, Antibiotic Gut Issues, Mexican Produce, Dental X-Rays, Chew & Spit (HouseCall)
27:03

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!

I would never say Ayurvedic, TCM, Bio-Regulatory, Functional Medicine, or any system of natural health was simple to master...

2 weeks ago I held a weekend-long Detox Retreat where I gave a seminar on the 9 toxic emotions that hold people back in life...

828: OAT Results, Application Process, Dosha BodyType Diet, Cooking for 2, Cystic Breakouts, Marfan Syndrome (HouseCall)
30:48

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

28:17

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:

Tom: Dr. Cabral, I am contacting you today seeking help with gastritis. I heard you on Justin Stenstrom's elite man podcast and talked breifly with Justin about contacting you. I have been on and off medications for almost a year, have kept refining my diet, I meditate regularly, currently trying acupuncture, anything I can to try to rid this, but I just can not seem to kick it, I am willing to do anything to get rid of it for good. Let me know if you can help. Thank you for your time!

Valerie: Hello Dr. Cabral! I have Adrenal fatigue and astopinia. I like my wine (a little to much) and I tend to drink about a bottle , on my two days off. I wonder if you could do a Podcast on drinking and how your body process it and in general, what what effects it has on ones health. I really enjoy your Podcasts. So much great information.

 

James: Hi Doctor Cabral. I listen to all your podcast and just ordered the 21 day detox. I have many questions but thought I stay with one for now. I have had serveral attacks for 15 years with Diverticulosis. I take heavy dose of anti biotics for 10 days drink only fluids and it goes away. My attacks come once every year to a year and half. Do not want to have the surgery just yet. I am 60 years old and wondering if getting my gut better and doing your detox a few times a year would help with me from getting the attack’s. I do not follow a healthy diet but was thinking of going with plant base type mediteraining diet. Can you please let me know what I should do to prevent this for good. Please keep up the great work you are touching, and helping so many people. Be well, James

Zoe: Hi Dr Cabral, I wondered if you could help me with some issues that my parents are suffering from:

  1. My mother has osteo-arthritis - as "diagnosed" by a medical doctor. She has felt it worsening over recent years - one of her ankles has only limited movement (as it has seized up/the bone has fused - per my understanding) - and she worries that she will end up being unable to walk. She is otherwise fit and healthy, although she suffers with anxiety, depression and some digestive issues (which seem to be linked to the anxiety). (she has also suffered from debilitating migraines since childhood, which can be better or worse depending on what else is going on in her life) and she had a difficult upbringing. When she does do exercise (such as dancing or hill walking), she really suffers with pain for several days after, and i worry that she is inclined to do less and less exercise as her condition worsens. She is a type a personality and either wants to walk for miles on end, or not bother with anything at all - all or nothing. I have heard that changes to diet and myofascial release can be beneficial, but i'd really appreciate your advice.
  2. My father has suffered with quite significant digestive issues for the last few years since he gave up work, and since encountering significant emotional stress in our family life. Before this, he had seemingly a very strong constitution - he had a very good job at the top of a company - and i think he misses this defined purpose and interaction. He is generally slim, fit and healthy, although he has suffered with inflammation and significant pain in his knee in recent years. he can have low mood and energy and he no longer sleeps deeply or well. If he eat rich food, late at night or a high volume of food, he experiences significant pain, bloating and a need to rush to the loo on a repeated basis. He took a food diary for a week, and it seemed to me that dairy and wheat (including beer!) were, at least, contributing factors. However, he is very relunctant to remove any of these, as he thinks that removing them will making him more sensitive to them, and that he then wont be able to tolerate these foods at all.I think there is a pattern with his digestive issues and how happy/purposeful/stressed he is. He added disgestive enzymes to his routine, on my advice, which he found helped more than the acid reflux medication that his GP gave him (called, i believe, Lansoprazole). However, in recent months, his pain and acid has become worse and he has gone back onto the acid reflux recommendation, which unfortunately says that he cant used any other digestive aids (including enzymes, presumably) for at least 2 hours either side of taking the meds. He doesnt have any white coating on his tongue so i dont think he has a bacteria overgrowth, so i've been trying to get him to take probiotics. Ive encouraged him to take electrolytes as he has a tendency to drink a lot of water (to counter the red white and beer!) - and he thinks that this has helped with energy and hydration too. Do you have any advice including a test you'd kindly recommend as i would like to give him a test as a belated Christmas present from myself!
  3. General question - i wondered if you had any thoughts on myofascial/lacrosse balls for releasing tension in the shoulders and ankles? And do you rate tissue salts? Finally, do you have any recommendations for strong CBD oils in the UK, as unfortunately, i believe that I am unable to purchase your product.

Apologies for the length of this request - i am hoping to pass your advice to my parents, and to get them to listen to your podcast, so they dont think im simply nagging them unnecessarily! Thank you, as always, for all that you do for our community! Best, Zoe

 

 

Zhang: Hi Dr Cabral. In regards to the food sensitivities test you offer, should I avoid the foods that come back as being highly sensitive for the rest of my life or just for a period of time? Thank-you

Joe: I am a regular listener and I appreciate what you are doing through your podcast. I am completing your detox protical with great results. In your daily nutritional support you list the various %’s of how each vitamin or mineral compares to the USDA minimum guidelines. Like you, I plan on using the daily support powder in my smoothies. I was curious after looking at the label, why do you have B-12 at 4,167% of % daily required and B-6 at 1,250%, but at the same time, calcium and magesium are respectively 5% and 13%? For instance, I have stopped consuming dairy and I find it hard it to reach 100% of calcium through diet alone. Should I find other supplements for these minerals? Thanks for your feedback.

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!

Nothing is more frustrating when you're trying to eat well and exercise, yet the weight still won't come off...

The great news is that while you're losing weight some very unexpected benefits can arise through your efforts without you having to set them as additional goals...

822: How to Get Out of Your Own Head In Order to Heal (MM)
22:56

It's been my experience that the majority of schooling (even Naturopathic) teaches us to treat the individual as an object that is almost like a car out of alignment...

We look to prescribe a medication or natural supplement in order to heal (in the case of conventional medicine "suppress") the health issue, but we pay very little attention to the silent cries of the patient...

What if the real reason a person can't get well has more to do with their dominant thoughts rather than their physical being? What if they've "tried everything," but still can't get well? Do we do more of the same?

Or, do we begin to treat people as human beings and speak with them on a deeper level? Unfortunately, this level of care is not taught in school, but it is imperative for those looking to heal others as well as themselves...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 822 to find out for yourself how to get out of your own head in order to finally heal - Enjoy the show!

821: Valtrex, Acid-Blocking Repercussions, Osteoporosis, Gut Permeability Issues (HouseCall)
26:44

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!

Lauren: Hi Dr Cabral, First, thank you! You continue to help me daily! This question is for my sister. She is 32 and after doing a month of whole 30 she found out she has a mild case of crohns in the tail of small intestine. She only got ct scan and colonoscopy with biopsy. The gastro told her to take lialda 1.2 (2tablets a day) and budesonide 3mg (3times a day) for two weeks while she is overseas and then come in to discuss treatment. I am very anti this as the doctor never discussed why she has all this inflammation in the first place. For background she also found out she had HSV-2 3 years ago right after she randomly got shingles. for the HSV2, she takes valtrex as she thinks its the only way. She has also been on birth control for 15 years. I believe since she started Valtrex, her stomach has been in shambles and her hair appears to be thinning. The doctor took her blood work and said everything seems 'fine' but she has elevated testosterone. First, Can you please recommend what she should do for crohns as well as what foods she should eat/avoid .. I want her to see a nutritionist to see what she can eat and/or a functional doctor or better yet you despite living in NY, to test for food sensitivities, organic acid test, heavy metals, thyroid etc. Secondly, can you please recommend the absolute necessary testing she should get done and how she can go about NOT taking these harsh treatment drugs doctors typically prescribe. I have a feeling her immune system already is poor and those treatments will make it worse and lead to later bigger problems. Third, could the valtrx and birth control and HSV2 in general be something causing the crohns? I want her off those medicines but I figured she may respond better to you rather than me telling her! Thanks in advance!! I really want to help her as she is overwhelmed and needs direction on what exactly to do/eat etc.

Lori: Hi Dr. Cabral. I’m so glad I found your podcast. I tell everyone about it and love passing on information to them that I think will help them - I have a question about my loud stomach. My stomach seems extremely loud after I eat, but there’s even times when I haven’t eaten anything and it is still making gurgling noises. I drink a smoothie every morning using your daily nutritional support, and I just ordered the fruit and vegetable blend. I tried using the probiotic in the daily protocol but it made me so bloated and uncomfortable that I stopped taking it. My diet is okay. It could be better but I don’t eat red meat, have occasional chicken, and eat mostly fish. I don’t eat a lot of processed food, and I do some form of exercise every day, either rowing, elliptical, weights or yoga (my favorite). I also try to meditate daily. I do get heatburn and maybe 5 years ago I was put on Zantac every day. I went off after a year or two because I felt I didn’t need it anymore. Ironically, I was put on high blood pressure meds a few years ago even though I am not overweight and have no other risks factors other than high bp readings at dr.’s office. I’m 5’7”, 135, workout daily, limit salt, no red meat. In your podcast 108, it said low stomach acid could be a cause. I monitored my bp for one month at home and had very good readings. I brought that info to my pcp and he said I could possibly stop, which I did. I’ve been monitoring and am having good readings. It’s been almost 4 months that I’ve been off all medication, not even over the counter Tylenol. I’m wondering if you think my loud stomach is because of an overgrowth and should I give the probiotics another try? It really made me very bloated and it was very uncomfortable. Thank you for your help. I look forward to hearing what you think I should do.

Deb: Dr. Cabral, I am a new 'convert' to your wealth of health insights thanks to friend Lisa. I am 68 female with Hashimoto's who has osteoporosis in both hips and osteopenia in spine. I have resisted taking any of the bisphosphonates or Prolia in the 15+ years I've experienced bone loss due to all the side effects. I eat healthy mostly Mediterranean diet (and no gluten, soy, or GMOs, eat organic 90%) and focus on exercises that will strength butt muscles and take 'all the right supplements.' A functional medicine osteoporosis expert proposes (while not a fan particularly) I take Prolia for 1 year and follow it up with a year on Fosamax reasoning that Prolia DOES build bone BUT if you stop it you are at greater risk of fracture. My integrative PCP is proposing Prolia and does not like bisphosphonates. What is your advice please?

Sarah: Hi Dr. Cabral, I recently got introduced to your podcast through your interview on Jay Ferruggia's podcast and I've been tuning in often to your podcast ever since! I've also been sharing it with my friends and colleagues and family members when I hear something on your podcast that might help them! So thankful for your insights and simple, straight-forward approach to healing. Over the last year I worked with a nutritionist in the Ottawa, Canada area (I also got him hooked to your podcast). Together we identified many food sensitivities (through electrodermal testing) and I changed my diet and approach to food drastically since then. (I'm trying to get my family on board but that has been a bit more challenging. But that is a topic for another day!) I saw immediate and ongoing amazing results. I am 5'4", athletic body type although small, and when I was a teenager weighed around 105-110 lbs), but after my 2nd child I kept gaining weight and couldn't lose it even though I kept increasing my exercise and work-outs and considered myself to eat very healthy. I had reached over 130 lbs, felt tired all the time, and was experiencing early signs of depression. Removing the foods I was sensitive to, I lost 18 lbs in around 3 months, and I recently lost that last stubborn 5 lbs after a bout of the flu (I am now back to 108-110lbs!). I have more energy and more zest for life, etc. Among my food sensitivities are the usual culprits but also a curious list of fruits and vegetables: gluten, oatmeal, corn, soy, dairy, pork, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, zucchinis, all legumes, papayas, mangos, kiwis, bananas, coconut products (except oil), sesame oil and seeds, garlic, food additives and stevia, etc. But I still experience frequent bloating and gas and sometimes constipation after having a "cheat meal" no matter how small the "cheat" ingredient is (which is on my food sensitivity list). The funny thing also is that my food sensitivities seem to change every few months. I also still struggle with psoriasis on my scalp - that has not gone away (had it for nearly 10 years now) and still is itchy even after 14 months of being on my program. I recently eliminated caffeinated coffee (still have decaf) and alcohol but this didn't seem to do anything. I have sugar maybe once a week in a larger amount, usually it is a teaspoon or less per day. I eat vegetables and protein every meal (usually meat protein since I can't do legumes) and do starch for lunch and dinner. I recently stopped eating between dinner and bedtime (and changed my bedtime routine based on your diurnal rhythms podcast episode. I go to bed close to 10pm and I naturally wake up close to 6am sometimes before. Whereas before I was so tired no matter how late I slept in!) I take magnesium glutamate (2 capsules before bed), a Vit B12 supplement (bought at pharmacy, Jamieson brand - my physician had identified low B12 levels through blood work before I started my diet change), and a Vit D3 supplement (also bought at pharmacy). I also take a probiotic capsule every day (mix of bifido and lacto) that my nutritionist gave me specifically for IBD-type of symptoms. I take the odd digestive enzyme before a cheat meal, and during periods of more cheating (e.g. holidays) I take glutamine powder every day. Wondering if you have any specific recommendations on how to figure out the problem around my digestion and my psoriasis (I suspect they are related). I listened to your previous podcasts on psoriasis and also on food sensitivities and digestion related. However, I am not clear what is the best protocol to start with: candida yeast overgrowth protocol, or the detox, and should I do the 7 or 14 or 21 day detox? and then what? (weight loss is not my goal). And, based on my body type, should I be eating a different proportion of macro nutrients? Also, my nutritionist's method did not identify the severity of food sensitivities, so I don't have a good sense for which foods to really remove completely and which ones are ok to cheat once in a while (other than dairy and gluten, they give me constipation for 3 days).Lent has started so this is a perfect opportunity to reset my body and my mind! Look forward to your suggestions. thank you so much.

Thank you for tuning into this weekend’s Cabral HouseCalls and be sure to check back tomorrow for our Mindset & Motivation Monday show to get your week started off right!

820: Detox Ingredients, 3-Day Parasite Test, Blood Sugar Dysregulation, High SIgA, Post-Workout Antioxidants, Plastic Water Bottles (HouseCall)
26:22

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:

Josh: I wanna know the ingredients in the detox protocol?

 

Denise: I would was wondering if the parasite test are very good at finding farm type parasites. I have been around farm animals all my life and did have two parasite test that did not find anything. I know my gut is still boating causing discomfort. It could be bacterial overgrowth but l don't know how to tell want the problem is. Do you have any thoughts on how to figure the problem out. Love your podcasts. Thanks for all your great advice.

 

Gene: I heard Dr. Cabral on a podcast and realized he may be one of the few people would could solve the last puzzle in my blood glucose puzzle. Does Dr. Cabral do online consulting? What is his hourly rate? Thanks for any thoughts. Gene

Jordan: Hi Dr Cabral. I recently took an Adrenal Stress Index test by Diagnos-Techs. Everything came back normal except my Total salivary sIgA which came back high. Do know what this could be a sign of? Or is there any any follow-up tests you think I should run to see if this is anything to be concerned with? Thanks!

Daniel: Hi Dr. Cabral, You are amazing. The knowledge on Health, Nutrition, Fitness and mindset provided to us by you on the Carbal Concept is outstanding. I first heard your interview on the Renegade Radio podcast and I resonated with much of your ideas and principals of balance in life. After finishing the 21-day detox, I would like to continue with the daily all-in-one shake, but I have a question regarding the influence of anti-oxidants (vitamin E, C, etc.) consumed post-workout on muscle adaptation, particularly muscle growth. Health is most important and with health comes both performance and aesthetics. I would like to build more muscle as I am slightly underweight after being overweight as a teenager and losing both muscle and fat with too much cardio focused training (lowest I have been was 160lbs at 6ft 6” tall). I still have some stubborn belly fat to address and was wondering if there is accuracy in some of the research regarding post-workout anti-oxidant consumption blunts the muscle growth stimulation? My training sessions (weights or HIIT) are first thing in the morning and my breakfast is also a post-workout shake. Would it be more optimal to have a 2:1 Carb to protein post workout shake for breakfast then have the Dr. Cabral All-In-One Shake later in the day as a snack away from the workout? Thank you and all the best, Daniel

Jordan: Dr Cabral. Thank you for the Jala water recommendation. I live in Boston and had been going to the Boston Clear Water mineral spring in Lynnfield and filling up with glass jugs to get my water, but now I will be getting the Jala water. My question is, it seems that the Jala water comes in plastic water bottles. What is your opinon on this? I've heard some people say some kinds of plastics are fine and others say all plastics are bad. What do you think? Am I fine drinking from Jala plastic water bottles? Thanks

818: Warning: Avoid These 4 Weight Loss & Sports Supplements (TT)
30:45

In any industry that has the ability to do a lot of good, you'll inevitably find a few "bad actors" that try to smear the good name of those looking to server others...

This is the exact case in the nutritional supplement industry where cutting-edge Ayurvedic, TCM, and Functional Medicine formulas are literally giving people their life back (along with healthy lifestyle modifications), but still a few companies are trying to ruin things for everyone else...

What they do is use very cheap ingredients that often contain putrified protein, heavy metals, mold, or other contaminants and try to get away with it...

The problem is that those "marketing companies turned supplement retailers" do not care about your overall well-being and health...

That's why on today's #CabralConcept 818 I want to share with you the 4 weight loss and sports supplements to stay clear of in order to keep yourself healthy & safe - Enjoy the show!

815: Why You Must Fail In Order to Ultimately Succeed (MM)
24:40

When I hear someone utter the words, "failure is not an option" I usually crack a little smile, since I know they must be new to this game we call life ; )

The funny thing is that the person uttering that phrase is actually more correct than they even know - but for the wrong reasons...

You see, failure is not an option. It's the only option in life. You don't get what you want in life, or achieve your wildest dreams without numerous failed attempts...

On today's #CabralConcept 815 I'll share with you why you MUST fail in order to ultimately succeed and why those failures are actually something to look forward to - Enjoy the show!

814: Creatine Recommendation, Cracked Teeth, Mouthguard, Foundational Help, Fruit Fast, Toxic Rash, TBI & Vision (HouseCall)
25:55

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!

Judy: What brand of creatine do you recommend and do you recommend a certain amount based on body weight and goals or should I follow the manufacturer’s instructions?

Cristi: Hi Dr. Cabral, I continue to appreciate all of your helpful information, and I have been trying to listen to all the back episodes of your podcast. I’m wondering what you have to say regarding bruxism and/or gum recession. My conventional dentist claims that I grind my teeth at night which is causing cracks in my teeth that he showed me on an x-ray. He also said that this is the cause of my gum recession where as my previous conventional dentist said that I simply brush too hard and never said anything about bruxism. It seems as if this dentist recommends a mouth guard to almost everyone that comes to his practice. From what I overhear every time I am in the office, everyone seems to have one. After getting my teeth cleaned, I either have a headache or my mouth is sore in some way. The cleanings are very rough. When I wear the mouthguard, I have a hard time sleeping with my mouth closed especially if I am a little stuffy, and I wake up with a dry throat. I also feel like I grind my teeth at night after visiting the dentist and when wearing the night guard. I also hate the thought of sleeping with plastic in my mouth every night. When I did not use the mouthguard for a period of time because I had a cold, I then tried to wear it again, and the next morning my teeth had moved; my bite was different and it took a couple of days to come back to normal. Suffice to say, I am no longer wearing the mouthguard, and I am finding a new dentist. I have already started on your nutritional support shake, with additional magnesium and vitamin D as well as curcumin. I eat an extremely healthy diet, essentially what you recommend. I suspect that if I do grind at night, it is stress related. I try things to mitigate this Such as exercise, yoga, meditation, CBD oil, etc. But I have no way of knowing whether or not I am grinding at night and if my efforts are stopping the problem, or if I am going to end up with all of my teeth falling out one day Because I am not wearing the horrible night guard which the dentist chastises me for not wearing. Help! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

 

Vaughan: Hi Dr Cabral, thank you for your amazing mission to share your wealth of knowledge with the world, including myself! My question is for my wife, she has been diagnosed with Narcolepsy 5 years ago, has anxiety and situational depression. She has been loaded up with some high doses of medications over the last 5 years including clonazapam, Dex-amphetamine, A-nuvigil, Lyrica and a number of others on and off. She has had a history of chronic endometriosis, abdomen pain, mood issues and has only just completed surgery for a full hysterectomy. She is a 20+ a day smoker and displays addictive behaviours. I have been unable to get her to look at underlying causes, opposed to treating symptoms and feel there is serious gut linkages between all of her issues. She is the definition of a complex case and so far all medical practitioners are simply juggling her between specialists (neurological, sleep, gyno, psychiatrist) and nobody is looking at the whole picture to assess causation. HELP! I know a little (enough to think gut disbiosis - leaky gut / SIBO leading to neurological and hormonal impalances ). What are your thoughts? Thanks for your time and consideration.Best regards, Vaughan 

Ali: Hi Dr. Cabral! I've been told by a functional medicine doctor that when we take supplements, vitamins, probiotics, etc. that we're inhibiting our body's natural ability to create those things that we need on its own, which is turn makes us more dependent on the supplements... Is that true? She's big on fasting (after curing herself from Hashimoto's through fasting and fruit), and believes we can thrive on fruit-only, as our primate brothers + sisters do. I have some lymph stagnation and my kidneys aren't filtering waste, so she has me on a 90-day detox with a bunch of herbs and I'm told to eat only fruit.... This seems quite extreme and I'm wondering if you could offer your thoughts? I know I won't stick to fruit-only for the long-haul, but is it an okay thing to do for 90 days? On the long haul, do you agree that our bodies can make everything we need if we stop consuming so many supplements and probiotics? Thanks so much!

Derek: Hi Dr. Cabral. Found your podcasts about a year ago and love the helpful information. I have recently had a red rash/red bumps break out on just my neck. I believe it to be eczema. It flares up from time to time and gets a little itchy. I am going to try eliminating gluten and eggs from my diet as I know them to be common sensitivities. What else could I do in addition to this? Thank you so much!  

Krystal: Hello Dr. Cabral, My husband experienced a TBI after a near fatal car accident he had in 2015. Because of the accident he has loss of peripheral vision on the right eye, scarring on the left eye (retina), seizures, short term memory loss, depression and migraines. Doctors say he won’t be able to drive again because of the loss of vision. I give him magnesium, turmeric and multivitamin every morning. With that, he also takes seizure medication called oxcarbazapine and devalproex. I am hesitant to stop the medications because he had a grand mal seizure in July when he tried to come off the meds. Chiropractors are nervous to do any adjustments due to the severity of his accident. With all of his issues, are there any other natural remedies I can implement for my husband besides the turmeric and magnesium? The main thing he wants back is his vision. Thank you so much doctor, your podcasts are so informative!

813: After Dinner Snacking, Stressed, Achalasia, Eyelashes Falling Out, Antibiotic Regimen, Shaky Muscles, Rebuild Body (HouseCall)
25:05

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:

Eliana: Hi, I am addicted to your podcasts! They have taught me so much. My question today is about the timing of carbs. It makes sense to me that with my goal of getting lean, it would be best to eat my carbs earlier in the day and none at night (after 3?). I heard your episode about meal type/timing and do eat liquid breakfasts, and have begun to have my carbs at lunch. I have begun cutting carbs out of my dinner and mostly have greens and fish, sometimes lentil soup. I eat a very healthy diet based on Mediterranean practice. I do sometimes have a snack after dinner which is usually a rice cake with 2 tablespoons of peanut butter or something with dark chocolate. Do you agree with cutting out these carbs at night, and do you have any other ideas for me to get lean, as I already eat well and exercise frequently (lift 3-4x’s per week and throw in cardio around that). Thanks!!

Julie: Hi Dr. Cabral, some years back I was diagnosed with PCOS (but no insulin resistance) after coming off the pill that was prescribed to me due to my bad acne when I was 15 years old. My doctor put me on the pill again until I had enough of taking synthetic hormones. I stopped taking the pill about three years ago altogether. I have always been very slim but about two years ago started to put on fat on my legs (+cellulite) and arms and just some around my belly. Also my skin has never been really clear. I suffer from acne mainly on my cheeks and upper back and shoulders. I am also prone to rosacea. I also noticed that hair growth increased on my legs and to some extend in my face. I have been taking vitex which brought me a regular period but I stopped taking it (June 2017) after my Naturopath told me that I should not take it long-term. I still get my period but my cycle is ranging from 35 to 61 days. I was trying to heal my gut with primal dieting, but felt awful due to histamine reactions. In August last year, I tried to heal my gut once again with the "gut thrive in 5 program" which I did great on. I did not lose any weight though, but my sugar cravings are gone, I seem to have a higher threshold for histamine containing products and I have regular bowel movements. Unfortunately, I still worked out even though my muscles were fatigued most of the time. I had the same issue when I was cutting out carbs on the primal diet. I now know that I was stressing out my body, and increased my carb intake dramatically. My carbs are mainly coming from sweet potato, pumpkin, some fruit (no citrus fruit), legumes, oats and occasionally from quinoa or wild rice. I also cut back on my workouts and focused on destressing, doing walks, Yin yoga (and some vinyasa classes if my body could handle them as my muscle fatigue was extreme at some points). I feel way better with an increased carb intake and have a lot more energy. My muscle fatigue is now completely gone and I started to incorporate about 2, 20 to 30 minutes runs into my week. I also do some more vinyasa classes now and I feel fine. Still do Yin Yoga, am on a 55 days meditation streak and started to take Rhodiola in the morning, which seems to help with energy and recovery and I think I am on a good way to get my period regular this time. I also started to look more into Ayurveda in order to tame my skin, as it still is inflamed most of the time and to better look after myself according to my body type. About two years ago I saw an Ayurvedic doctor in Germany, but she wasn't sure if I was a Pitta-Kapha or Tridosha. If I do online test, I always get Tridosha. However, I am focusing on a Pitta pacifying diet (but eat no dairy at all and just occasionally some eggs and salmon) at the moment and have the feeling that it helps with the inflammation on my skin. What still really bothers me is the fat around my legs and that I seem to not lose any weight regardless of what I am doing as well as the hair on my face. I am eating well (all very nutritious and organic food) as well as not too little or too much food. I am worried that I damaged my metabolism because thanks to your interview at the Melissa Ambrosini show I know now that cutting out carbs lowers your T3. Am I on the right track and just need to give my body more time to heal? Or could there be any other possible explanation? Some more infromation: An extensive hormonal test was done at the endocrinologist in Germany in 2015 (6 months after I stopped taking pill) and in 2016 (1,5 years after taking the pill). All has been fine according to my doctor. I had also an ACTH test performed since 17-OHP was slightly elevated with 1,38, but it came back normal. From 2015 to 2016 my T3 level dropped from 3.2 to 2.3, which I am not sure if that is concerning. I could not find a normal range for DHEA-S level. Mine seems pretty high with 311 (in 2015) and 362 (in 2016), but I am not entirely sure. I am 28 years old (as I know it matters when it comes to DHEA). I could not have a test done in 2017 so I don't know where my hormones are at at the moment.

Jocelyn: Hello, I recently heard you on a podcast and what you practice. I am 25 years old and suffering from the after affects of diagnosed achalasia. I have frequent heartburn and stomach inflammation. I have suffered from many cases after a hellar myotomy with hyponatremia. I am hoping to come here for help because my doctors don’t have any root cause answers. how can I set up a consultation with you?

 

Jen: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have three questions today: 1) As I've gotten into my 40's, I noticed my eyelashes and eyebrows have gotten lighter and I have a hard time growing my eye brow hair out. I've also always noticed that my hair grows incredibly slow. Do you know why this is and what I can do to grow out my hair faster as well as my eyelashes/brows? 2) If I have to do a round of antibiotics, is there a protocol for ensuring that I dont get candida, UTI or a yeast infection, as a result? Is there a natural anti-biotic that I can take in place of Antibiotics for a sinus infection, such as Silver? 3) Can you recommend a protocol or supplements to improve my memory, as I've noticed lately that I have a hard time remember (short term). Sometimes I think its due to stress or overwhelm, but I'd like to know what you recommend to improve this. PS, Please, please, please tell me when your new book is coming out? Thanks for all you do- Jen

 Josh: Dr. Cabral. I️ was diagnosed with Rocky Mountain spotted fever in 2015. I️ took doxycycline and was later cleared of any other co infections. But since then health has not went back to where it was. I️ suffer from fatigue weak and shacky muscles almost tremors and poor blood work. Any suggestions. Thanks for the work you do

Jodie: Hello, I am 28 years old I wasn't having menstrual cycles for 4-5 years since 2013. So many possible causes: rapid weight loss I dropped 2 stone in my final year at university and maintained that for a year and then I started exercising heavily and became orthorexic- choosing to only eat foods that were considered healthy/ superfoods. My gut health has been so bad since this miserable period in my life. In 2016 I tried to eat more and gain weight to see if my cycle would return but had no luck, so my doctors told me I may suffer with infertility in the long run so I should consider trying for a baby if this is something I wanted. I was terrified of being infertile so I followed their advice and opted to try fertility treatment to fall pregnant. In August I fell pregnant. My pregnancy has been ok, I've had some skin issues (rashes and spots on my face and legs), water retention, brain fog and extremely uncomfortable stomach issues ( gas, bloating, constipation and diarrhoea). I know I cannot do much in terms of rebalancing and detoxing during pregnancy but in 2 months time when my baby is here I'd love to fix my health once and for all. I know this is a silly question, but where should I start and what can I do now to help reduce the symptoms? Kind regards, Jodie, UK

811: The 4 Forgotten Ways to Detoxify Your Body Seasonally (TT)
30:33

Did you know that until just a couple of hundred years ago, it was common knowledge and practice to detoxify with the changing seasons?

Of course, it only makes sense when you think about how your body has to transition and adapt from a colder to warmer environment (as well as dealing with dampness, etc.)...

Fortunately, this knowledge has not been lost and through the preserved works of Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine we can begin to see how best to help our bodies remove the sluggishness, heat, allergies, brain fog, etc. that come with being out of balance...

810: Heal Your Gut & Health Using This Sensitive Gut Guide (WW)
33:48

It's hard to imagine a scenario where looking at proper gut function, digestion, and absorption of nutrition wouldn't come into play...

After all, even if you're eating a great diet what truly matters in the long-run is if your cells are getting that nutrition...

And, for people with weak digestive systems that may have been compromised by antibiotics, alcohol, birth control, ibuprofen, stress, poor food combining, etc. they may be on the road to slowly declining in both mental and physical health due to improper absorption of nutrients...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 810 for details on what I do in my Functional Medicine practice to help people heal their gut and health by using what I call a "sensitive gut guide" - Enjoy the show!

809: How to Eliminate Inflammation from Food Sensitivity Reactions (TWT)
28:11

One of the fastest ways to heal the body is to eliminate the stressors that are currently holding it back from rejuvenating itself...

One of the first stressors that must be removed is the eating of foods that your body is sensitive to...

The reason for this is that food sensitivities (or allergies) cause an inflammatory immune response every time they are eaten...

Overtime, this greatly wears down the body's defenses and leads to greater dis-ease in the body and mind...

On today's #CabralConcept 809 I want to share with you how to eliminate inflammation from food sensitivities and how to rebuild your body - Enjoy the show!

807: Skin Supplements, Intestinal Cleanse, Food Testing Options, Pins & Needles While Sleeping, Fix Your Gut (HouseCall)
25:39

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!

Jenett: Hi Dr. Cabral, I am interested in what supplements you would recommend to help keep the skin more youthful. I heard a combination of collagen, Omega 3's and a good probiotic, would help. Would you agree? Can you recommend good brands for these and any other supplements you might recommend? Thanks, Jenett

 

Dr. Dianne: Hello, I am so thankful to have been connected to Dr. Cabral and enjoy his daily podcasts. I have been through two years of tests and products to resolve Chronic GI issues without significant results until beginning with products suggested by Dr. Cabral. My Questions are in relation to directions of usage as follows;

  1. Intestinal Formula #1 states; "Start with 1 capsule daily. Increase by 1each day until desired effect." Question: Once desired effect is achieved do you discontinue use (until needed) or continue with 1/day?
  2. Intestinal Formula #2. Is the intension to continue with the directions until the entire container is gone or until a specific result occurs.
  3. Intestinal Cleanse. Is this something that can be utilized during a average work schedule or is it a cleanse in which your will need consistent access to the bathroom.

Thank you, DiAnne

 

Steve: “Any Lab Test Now” has food sensitivity tests ranging up to around 1 grand. Is this worth it or is there a better way? Thanks, Steve

Lisa: Hi Stephen I often get pins and needles, cramping and dead legs. I am female, 34 and around 50kg/5’ 4. I do an office based job so I am sat down for most of the day, but I live in London and so I walk a lot everyday. I often find I wake up in the night with a dead leg or an arm that has gone to sleep and I can’t move - I need to physically lift it up to try and get some blood back into it. Could this be due to a magnesium deficiency? Thanks for all your invaluable advice in these podcasts - keep up the good work! Lisa

 

Cassi: Hi Dr. Cabral. I am trying desperately to heal my gut, but I feel like I keep taking 1 step forward and 2 steps back. I did your Candida protocol about a year ago and felt fantastic for around 6 months. Then I wanted to continue to the healing so tried turmuric - I was so bloated for about 2 weeks it was awful. Once I got back to "normal" I tried drinking apple cider vinegar with water in the mornings and again my stomach got extremely exacerbated and I had to do a liquid diet for a day and restrict my diet to get back to normal. The same process repeated when I started taking probiotics (I didn't buy your brand but a well known quality one). Now I'm back to being very constipated, bloated, gassy and miserable after every meal again. I did see a NP and did a stool test, they said I had SIBO and for about 2 months took a digestive enzyme w/ meals and Biocin for 4 weeks. I felt like this did nothing whatsoever to help. Do you have any next steps recommendations? I am thinking about going strictly on youe sensitive food diet plan or a SIBO specific plan, but not sure if that's what I should try next. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

806: Help is Here, Healthy Baby, Sugar in Shake, Pyrolles, Clean Gut Probiotic, Enlarged Thyroid, SIBO Answer, Antitrypsin Deficiency (HouseCall)
25:37

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:

Chrystelle: Hi Stephen, I heard your podcast & I thought "finally! Someone that can help me!" I want to give you the full story (so you have all of the facts) but the short version so I don't write a story book. So here goes - I had a milk allergy as a child. I couldn't drink it without getting sick and sometimes leading to bronchitis. Milk was reintroduced back in my diet in my early years & I was told I had outgrown the allergy. I drank milk for another 20 years before realising it doesn't agree with me. It bloats and constipates me. And I was probably bloated for 20 years. I also had asthma and a child and plenty of medication to go along with it. I also took adhd medication at the age of 14 until o refused to keep taking it. Since then, I have taken the pill, I have had 3 Caesarean's, a d&c because of a missed miscarriage, a breast reduction & wisdom teeth removed surgically. So again, plenty of medication. Over two years ago I entered a body building competition. Where I reached about 8-10% body fat. I was eating more than most in the same position but I was also eating 175g of protein a day in every form, shakes, bars, meat, canned fish. I ate a lot more rubbish that I usually would. I was training up to 8 times a week. I started noticing plenty of digestive issues after the comp. I'm unsure if they were caused by the prep or if they came back as I introduced foods that I had cut out. To help, I cut out gluten, dairy and rice. It seemed to help but as time went on, I started to react to more and more foods. I would get bloated or more commonly headaches, pimples on my facd, get tired and change of mood. I tried cutting out all grains, sugar and starchy carbs. Doing this I lost weight & the boating and headaches stopped but then I became constipated and not much energy and not sleeping well. I have had inconsistent bowel movements for as long as I can remember. I have drank alcohol but very rarely these days & also look drugs as a teenager. Last year I was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome by my gp. Determined to find out why (the doctors aren't much help) I did my own research and I thought I might have candida overgrowth. I tried the candida diet which did not help. I gained weight and felt awful and reacted to more foods. Wow as I write all of this down, I realise I have put my body through a lot! But I just want to feel good again. I would love consistent moods, energy & no more headaches and bloating. I hope you can help me figure out my dishes, heal my body and point me in the right direction. Kind Regards, Chrystelle

Anonymous: Hi Dr. Cabral! My husband and I are healthy 27 year olds who want to try for a baby soon. Do you have any tips (aside from what you have given in previous podcasts of which I will check) on a healthy pregnancy? I’m doing the 14 day Cabral Detox before we try and wondered if that is a wise choice. In my mind, I’m removing toxins and preparing a healthy place for our baby to grow. I’m a petite 119 lb woman and I hope I can do the right things to strengthen myself in the process and eventually for giving birth. Is there a book you could recommend that tracks what to be mindful of each month to pursue an ideal health for my family and I? Thank you so much for all you do!

Melissa:Hi Team, I started day 1 of the 7-week detox today. I'm curious about sugar being listed as "other" ingredients. If the whole point is to reset liver and avoid sugary fruits to help lose weight, why is this an ingredient in the protein powder? Thank you, Mel

Jess: Hi dr Cabral, I can’t thank you enough for you’re generosity in sharing your wealth of knowledge! I heard you on Melissa ambrossini’s podcast and listen to you every day in the car! Was hoping you could shed some light on the topic of food addiction and practical ways to beat it? OR pyrolles, undermethylation and copper/zinc imbalance which I have recently been diagnosed with. Would love to hear your thoughts on how to overcome these imbalances as I know a major overhaul of my diet and lifestyle is necessary. Thanks again, Jess

Bill: Hi Dr Cabral, Long time listener, big fan of the show. What are your recommendations for supplements on your website to take if I can’t afford the candida protocol at this time? Thanks!

Robert: Dr. Cabral, First of all, I enjoy your podcast. I'd like to leave some general feedback about the podcast sound. Lately the podcast is only on the left channel, nothing from the right. I randomly choose an older podcast, and it didn't have this problem. So, please adjust your equipment so we can enjoy the podcast in both ears. Thank you.

Rosie: Hi Dr Cabral, I have been told I have an enlarged thyroid by my past few primary care physicians. Every year I end up taking a blood test to check my thyroid levels as well as an ultrasound to make sure there aren’t any growths. My tests always come back normal and I am always told just to continue to keep an eye on it. Is this something I should be concerned about or do some people just happen to have a larger than normal thyroid? I would like to find out what the root cause of this could be. I’m 36 years old and pretty healthy, no major health issues. I would appreciate any information/advice you could give me!

Kathryn: Hi Stephen, A friend turned me onto your podcasts and I've been listening to many episodes and then decided to do a search of every episode you mention SIBO and have been going through those. I've had ongoing digestive issues for 6 years now. At one point I couldn't eat anything without getting sick. I changed my diet to a whole food plant-based lifestyle (no animal product at all except for honey occasionally with my oatmeal) and that helped tremendously but I still have episodes about 1 time a week or so. I've done an ALCAT food sensitivity test and stay away from all foods that cause a severe or moderate reaction but still occasionally eat the mild reaction foods in very small quantities, those don't seem to be a problem. I've had a organic acids test done recommended by my naturopath which showed SIBO and candida overgrowth. That was a year ago, since I was training heavily for an Ironman we decided to go the route of fixing some of the other problems like nutrition deficiencies and thyroid problems. Right now I take a vitamin D supplement, Vitamin B12 complex liquid, I just started Iron, and I've been taking Saint John's wert and HPA adapt for over 6 months now. I am again heavy into ironman training with my race being a little less than 3 months away, April 28th. I'm still having symptoms almost once a week where I just feel like my body is not digesting the food and it just sits there until I become nauseous or I have diarrhea. through listening to your podcast I've heard you say over and over again to use the Candida and bacterial protocol and I'm considering it. Should I wait until after the Ironman since its a 12 week protocol and I have to eat certain foods during training to sustain my workouts? my workouts are about 4-6 hour bike rides and 2-4 hour runs on the weekend totaling about 12-17 hours of endurance training a week. Thank you for all your information you provide. I'll be bringing you up at my next appoint with my naturopath as she uses the same supplements you do. Thank You, Kathryn

Lauren: I have a question about my 60 year old mother. She has recently been diagnosed with Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency. They found a spot on her lungs and are telling her its emphysema. She has never smoked. She was around her Nana who was a smoker but that was when younger and only when they visited her weekly. Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency is said to be a genetic disorder but I didn't know if its 'turned on' by inflammation. Is this something she can take care of with diet? She has had asthma for years, steroids and many breathing treatments multiple times a year. She also has been on depression pills for at least 25 years and fibromyalgia for 20 years. She also only has bowel movements a few times a week. She has the symptoms of parasites and candida (low appetite nauseous and high sugar cravings). I would like her to do the OAT test. Wondering what your suggestion is and what you know about Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency. Thank you!

804: Harvard's 4 Most Important Types of Exercise (TT)
27:34

Although I truly believe those working in the field have a huge advantage over those studying exercise physiology in a controlled lab environment, every once in awhile I come across some research that we can all agree upon...

Usually those studies revolve around foundational exercise programming that every human should be following...

I also believe that one of the reasons why people are getting injured more than ever or completely burning out their adrenals & thyroid (HPTA Axis) is because they've lost sight of what a balanced workout program looks like in the first place...

On today's #CabralConcept 804 I want to share with you a letter written by Harvard University on the 4 most important types of exercise you should be following for best results - Enjoy the show!

802: The Mounting Evidence Against Eating Meat? (TWT)
31:54

Today's topic is no doubt going to raise a few eyebrows, ruffle a few feathers, and have a few people seeing red, but...

I ask if that is your initial reaction without first hearing the research what is your allegiance to eating meat?

And, in today's podcast I'm not actually telling you not to eat any meat, but I do find it interesting when a research study with thousands of people in it provides some telling data why can't we listen first?

Remember, "I have no dog in the race" and my #1 and only priority is helping people (and myself & family) live the longest healthiest lives they can...

I think you'll find today's #CabralConcept 802 eye-opening when it comes to the mounting evidence against meat and protein consumption in general - Enjoy the show ; )

801: Who Told You Life Was Supposed to Be Easy? (MM)
28:35

I have to admit that at one point in my life I was searching deeply for the answers on how to remove this human condition we refer to as "suffering..."

At the time I was angry, unwell, my body was broken, and I had very little going for me...

What I was looking for was a magic pill, undiscovered path, or some other remedy that could transport anywhere, but here...

However, after taking time to study the world around me and dig into ancient philosophies dating back thousands of years I discovered a universal truth on how we can turn our trials in triumphs...

On today's #CabralConcept 801 I want to share with you why life is not supposed to be easy and why that's actually a good thing - Enjoy the show!

800: Affordable Detox, Gluten Opinions, Weak Digestion, Chronic Yeast, Adrenal Testing, Hormone Therapy, Skin Removal Surgery (HouseCall)
26:23

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!

Courtnie: Hi my name is Courtnie and I was just wondering if there was any other detoxes you could recommend to me? I’m having a problem with my bloating and I would love more than anything to do your detox but unfortunately I just can not afford it anytime soon. So if there are any cheaper brands that could help me in the mean time, I would really appreciate any suggestions you may have! Thank you guys so much for your help and all of your hard work!

Maya: Hi Dr. Cabral, I love your podcast, and value your opinion and expertise very much. I was wondering what your thoughts are on gluten.. is it good or bad for our (gut) health? I’ve read so many conflicting studies and articles, and I just don’t know what to believe. I would love to know your thoughts. Thanks so much for all you do!

Ameliah:  Dr. Cabral I need help. I found you through the elite man podcast my significant other listens to. I love your podcast and I see a naturopathic doctor where I live. My health has been in a really bad place the past 2 years or so. This time last year I went to my Pcp for chronic chest pain and she told me it was my stomach. I tested positive for h. Pylori. Did a strict 2 week regimen of antibiotics twice a day and an ulcer preventive. Went back tested again it was negative. About a week later I woke up with the worst stomach ache of my life and chest was burning so I went back and they put me on a PPI. I took it everyday for 10 months. Knowing I didn't want to be on medicine I tried coming off by myself several times over the course of the 10 months. The Pcp had no intention of helping me get off the meds and actually increased my dosage after 6 months because I went back with the complaint of something feeling stuck in my throat. She diagnosed me with globous sensation and ordered me to get scoped by a GI. I was really scared and have been suffering panic attacks during this entire process and didn't want to see the GI. So the Pcp wouldn't refill my prescription for the PPI and actually dismissed me from the practice. That's when I found the naturopathic doctor this past December and followed her protocol for getting off PPIs. Since I went cold turkey off them I suffered intense symptoms that mainly resided in my throat. My throat felt so strained and made it hard to swallow. I lost 7lbs in 5 weeks from not being able to eat without discomfort. The naturopath put me on zinc carnosine and panplex 2 which has helped a lot. But since December she's only did Amma therapy and ordered a blood test. Her suspicion is leaky gut. But she seems extremely puzzled by my throat. I've eliminated all gluten and dairy the past 6 weeks as doing elimination diets I'm sure I'm sensitive too. I haven't ate meat for almost 2 years . My stomach doesn't hurt I pass normal bowel movements everyday that are very clean. My lymph nodes under my chin constantly feel swollen. My extremities tingle I'm always fatigued. My heart beat accelerates from walking so I haven't been able to work out for months which was a big part of my daily life. I feel lost,hopeless, and desperate. I'm a mother to a beautiful 4 year old and I can barely get through my days for myself. All I drink is tea,water,and fresh juices. I live off fruits vegetables and grains. I don't understand why I'm not healthy I'm 28 years old. Please help me.

Shawnna: I have been dealing with chronic yeast infections for over 8 yrs. I've tried to get rid of them myself, and many times I've broke down and taken fungal medications, only for it to return within 2 months. I have also been diagnosed with seborreheic dermatitis, which is frustrating by itself. I heard your podcast #725 on Candida overgrowth.. I loved it! I'm hoping I will finally be able to get rid of the yeast problems I have been dealing with and feel normal again. Can I go ahead and order the protocol without getting the organic acids test?

Christina: Dear Dr. Cabral, I live in Germany and I am a really big fan of yours, I listen to your podcast religiously. On episode 730 you answered a question that 1 to 1 translates to my situation. I was on a detox diet for 4 months and I haven't had a migraine ever since. I used to have them every week. My ND had me test everything except for adrenal hormones. During the diet I developed dry skin and and dry eye symptoms and it hasn't gotten better. I looked up fat absorption issues and I definitely have those so i am going to get an enzyme. If I do have adrenal fatigue what would I need to do to get better? Thanks a million!

Dan: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you so much for all that you do. You are truly changing the world. I am a 27-year-old male and former collegiate wrestler. I have recently become hypothyroid and have extremely low Testosterone. I have been working with a functional medicine doctor who has tested my blood for all deficiencies related to thyroid (Vitamin D, Selenium, Zinc etc.). I also had a CDSA 2.0 stool test, SIBO saliva test, and food sensitivities test. I am still waiting for my adrenal test results. Everything has come back completely normal except that I was slightly low on vitamin D so I immediately began supplementing. I also take a comprehensive multivitamin, fish oil, and curcumin. I have not done any type of hormone therapy yet and I would really like to avoid it if possible. I am desperate to find the root cause and I'm not sure what to do next. Please help. Thank you so much!

Mary: Hi Dr Cabral! About 4 years ago, I under went bariatric surgery. The procedure was successful and I lost 180 pounds. I plateaued about a year and a a half ago and have maintained my current weight of 180 lbs. As a result of the procedure, I have some quite a lot of excess skin. I've started the process of looking into plastic surgery to remove the skin. The procedure is costly and the doctors have advised me to be at a weight I am happy with before going through it. I wondering if there is way to know what an ideal weight would be for myself. I've always had a goal of being 160-150 lbs in mind but assumed due to the excess weight to my skin I may not be able to achieve that number unless its removed. Is there a way to figure out what an ideal weight would be for myself before I under go plastic surgery? And if so, which one of you test would you recommend running for me to jump start the process of trying to loose what I need to hit that number. I am 30 year old female, 5'7' and 180 lbs. I would consider myself pretty active. I walk 4 miles a day. I strength train three time a week and focus on cardio 2 times a week. I still monitor and mindful of my eating habits. Thank you in advance!

 

Thank you for tuning into this weekend’s Cabral HouseCalls and be sure to check back tomorrow for our Mindset & Motivation Monday show to get your week started off right!

799: California Trees, Choosing Supplements, Dizzy, Rib Pain, Mouth Rash, Low Hormones, Central Serous Retinopathy, Supplement Timing (HouseCall)
26:39

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:

Lance: Hi Dr. Cabral, the more I pick your brain with these questions the deeper I research into whether your information is correct. This opens all sorts of doors! I have not been disappointed. My wife and I have the opportunity to expand our house and because of this, I get to recreate our yard. I am always looking to support my family's health/well-being as well as searching to minimize the cost of nutrition. I live in Central California and have plenty of great weather for planting and growing fruit/nut trees. My busy schedule does not allow me to garden but I could tend to trees. I have been asking people what type of trees they would plant. So my question to you is...if you lived in California, had limited space and was able to plant max 5 trees, which ones would you pick? Keep in mind, you would be using these trees for nutritional purposes.

Patrick: I started taking supplements to try and lower my blood sugar. I take others like HCL to help with digestion and even others for gut health or general wellness. Like many listeners, I find that I'm suddenly taking A LOT of supplements and keep hearing about new ones that would be beneficial. How do we know which to take long term, which to take short term and when to stop taking certain ones? Thanks!

Angela: Hi Dr. Cabral! First off, thank you for everything you do. Your advice and podcast lessons are priceless. My question is regarding my boyfriend's spine. In high school he played competitive hockey and endured 5 concussions and also broke his neck (the C4). Three years ago he was in a car accident and had suffered severe whiplash and another concussion. These injuries have taken place over the last decade and immediate treatment, such as physio did not happen. Over the last month he has changed his lifestyle by cutting out all alcohol and beginning to lift weights again. He instantly started to get severe dizziness, inability to focus his eyesight, intense head aches, as well as nausea and loose stool. He has since been diagnosed with Cervical Vertigo and he is starting his sessions with a chiropractor next week. He has a high stress job and also has a hard time relaxing the mind before bed and high anxiety to the point his heart rate speeds up and says that his pounding heart can turn painful. He has terrible posture and comments on his weak and painful lower back, and I have noticed considerable muscle mass decrease in his legs. I've been giving him Natural Calm before bed every night, trying to get him to cut down on caffeine, and from your description, he has a Vata body type. What are your recommendations on his healing journey in terms of rehab exercises or diet? He thinks he will be this way forever and I just want him to not be in pain or a stressful state all the time, and live a long healthy life. Thank you for your help!! Angela

May: Hi Dr. Cabral, Love your podcasts and thought I would take this opportunity to tell you to keep doing what you are doing. You are amazingly knowledgable and I appreciate your easy to apply tips and information and for that I am grateful. Without taking up too much of your time... I have had a dull pain in my upper left abdominal quadrant just under the lower rib. When I palpate under the rib, there is a mass that I can feel that is tender. I've had it checked with the physician a few times who states that it is muscular and has ordered a chest x-ray I'm thinking to ease my worry. Without having to go this route, could there be other reasons for the pain here? For some background, this dull pain initially started when I was pregnant with my son almost 6 years ago. When he was in my belly, he would "put his foot there" and I would gently nudge it aside. The pain has come and gone so I've left it to it being a muscular problem, but for the last 3 months, it hasn't gone away. I changed sides on the bed thinking it could be my sleeping position, I've stretched it over and over again and before it would subside. No change in appetite, or BM but the dull ache I've noticed is more prominent during my ovulation (day 1-12). Not sure of the pattern, or if it is hormonal (I'm 42). I'm regular, not on any pills and generally healthy otherwise. Blood work done recently with functional medicine practitioner who states that my liver could be compromised but nothing significant, more proactive in intervention (dandilion, milk thistle, etc) ... Any recommendations or suggestions I do welcome. Thank you.

Lily: I’ve been listening to Dr. Cabral’s podcasts recently due to a rash I’ve had around my mouth for about 10 months now. I’ve tried a lot of different things (vegan and gluten free diet, Doterra detox, medicated cream, etc.) and the only thing that’s worked is the cream. The problem is: as soon as I stop taking the cream for a few days, the rash begins to reappear. I know it must be unhealthy to use a medicated cream for as long as I have so I really want to find a way to heal the rash once and for all! From what I’ve gathered by listening to podcasts it sounds like I should do the Dr. Cabral detox, do a food sensitivity test, or both? I’m 24 years old and I’ve had a long history (It has been on and off since I was about 10 or so?) of eczema and other skin rashes such as my current one. I eat very clean and minimally processed foods. Please give me some advice on what you recommend.

Paula: Hi Dr. Cabral, I just got my hormone levels checked and they're all lower than those of most 90-year-olds (except cortisol, which is slightly lower than average). I'm 27. Slight hypothyroidism. Starting hormone replacement. I've also had a couple foot fractures this year (from minor things), and I'm worried I have osteopenia/porosis. Both of these issues are likely due to the eating disorder I had for several years. I also have acne, bloating, & foot fungus - so I'm trying candida cleanses, and am SURE I have leaky gut. I just ordered your HTMA & heavy metal detox kit (another test said my metals are high). Been eating a clean vegan diet mostly free of grains & foods I learned I'm sensitive to. Main questions: 1.) How REVERSIBLE are issues like osteoporosis & severely low hormones at age 27? (I'm worried my body is falling apart/permanently damaged.) 2.) WHAT CAN I EAT without causing more damage/food sensitivities? 3.) Is there any ORDER I should do all of these things, in order to best heal my body? PLEASE answer all you can - I know it will help others, and after gong to several practitioners that won't listen/don't get it, you're my main hope! THANK YOU for all you do.

David: Hello from Australia I really enjoy your podcast and gain plenty of useful information from it. Thank you very much. I have a health question which I am happy for you to share if you wish. I am 36 years old and have suffered from an eye condition called central serous retinopathy (CSR) for the past 12 months. Simply put, it is when a blood vessel bursts in the back of my retina and the fluid leaks into my retina causing blurred and dulled vision in that part of the eye. My eye is unable to drain the fluid faster than it enters my retina. It is incredibly hard to read and function as my sight has become so impaired. Each time I think it is improving it seems to happen again and I end up back at square one. I have had repeated attacks in both my left and right eyes. I have seen an eye specialist and he basically says only time can heal or I can have laser surgery to fuse the leak. Laser surgery means that I will lose that part of my sight forever but I am told that I shouldn't notice it. The other problem with laser surgery is that it doesn't stop the cause of my condition and there is nothing to say that the blood vessels in my retina won't burst again the next day and I am back where I started. The specialist tells me that the condition can be caused from high cortisol levels and is often linked to steroid use and stress. I have used a topical steroid for a contact dermatitis I used to have on my hands but I have cleared this dermatitis since switching to a mostly (90%) plant based diet and I have not used any topical steroids since October but my eyes don't seem to have improved. I have received no advice re nutrition or supplements or any other testing that I should have done or could do. Do you have any suggestions? Kind regards, David

Judy: When is the best time of day to take my vitamin D and vegan omega 3 supplements? And are they best on an empty stomach or with a meal?

797: Use Exercise & Detox to Combat Weight Gain & Liver Issues (New Research) (TT)
29:37

These include auto-immune issues, diabetes (formerly adult onset), cardiovascular, and now non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (what!)...

And if children are susceptible to these toxicities of the modern world just think about the accumulation that has happened by the time you get to be an adult...

Luckily, #FunctionalMedicine has provided us with a roadmap of how to uncover what is wrong with the individual and then go about rebalancing the body from the inside out...

796: How to Finally Get Rid of Candida & Bacterial Overgrowth (CBO Protocol) (WW)
30:35

If you're at a loss for how to get well, keep the weight off, or live longer the very first place I recommend looking into is your overall gut health...

And, you may very well be surprised to find that the majority of people who are struggling with some type of body, mind, or health issue have a degree of gut dysbiosis...

This means that their intestinal tract has some type of over growth of yeast or fungus (Candida) or bacterial overgrowth (SIBO, C. Diff, etc.), or both...

This can be lab tested and verified or you can listen to your body and your symptoms and choose to rebalance your gut without further Functional Medicine testing...

On today's #CabralConcept 796 I will lay out all your options, what your symptoms of dis-ease may feel like, and then how to finally get rid of candida and bacterial overgrowth for good - Enjoy the show!

795: "The Rain Barrel Effect" Debut! (TWT)
35:29

Over 20 years ago I made the promise to myself that if I ever figured out how to get well again I would share that message with the world...

250,000+ private client appointments later with 18 years of research, I can honestly say I believe what I've learned and put into practice works and it can help you too...

My wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging philosophy was shaped by a decade of feeling unwell, thousands of books read, studying under dozens of mentors, and interning in natural medicine clinics all over the world...

All of that led to an eye-opening revelation of what really works. And that comes down to healing the body at a deep foundational level where you are removing the toxicities and replacing the deficiencies all at once...

In my new book, The Rain Barrel Effect, I share with you exactly how I have helped thousands of people get well, lose the weight, and finally feel alive again even when they had given up hope...

It is my goal on today's #Cabral Concept 795 to pass along this much needed information and explain my specific protocol of how to take back control of your life and body - Enjoy the show!

25:52

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!

Chelsea: Dear Dr Stephen, Hi there, I'm Chelsea and I'm currently a final year medical student at the University of Otago. Next year as our intern year we are required to spend 6 weeks at a clinic or a hospital of our choosing as apart of our course. I heard your podcast on the Melissa Ambrosini show and it really resonated with me. I am very interested to learn about the different healing modalities other than Western medicine and I believe that this make me a better a medical practitioner in the future. I see a lot of cases at the hospital where Western medicine is making people sicker instead better and I know there is another way. I would absolutely love to spend around 6 weeks with you and your clinic if that is possible. I am fascinated by everything you do at your clinic but particularly in the Ayurvedic medicine and how you treat people according to their body types. Please feel free to ask me any questions or concerns you have. Look forward to hearing from you soon. Warm Regards, Chelsea.

 

Leslie: Hello Stephen, I am someone who has been investigating and practicing health and wellness for many, many years. I am a composer who also uses sound and voice to support clients. (I coach voices for all occasions, from public speaking to personal health and therapeutic purposes.). As a coach and practitioner— and physical trainer (I have been a certified yoga teacher for over 15 years), I have been thinking about getting a certification as a coach for wellness— body/mind/spirit to integrate with voicework. Hearing you speak recently on a podcast, I resonate deeply with both your history and mindset. I thought I heard you share that you have a coaching program... I am curious if this is true? I am based in Spain until July, but may be spending time in Cambridge until for a month or so in August. I am not sure if you are in town then, but I would Love to meet you!!! Thank you, Leslie

Marcela: Hello I recently listened to your podcast abut Candida. I am so lost I have some of the symptoms you been describing and have had a numerous of blood works done with all of them showing inflammation and blood white count low, I get the bloating, joint and muscle aches brain fog and irritation. I am not sure where to begin. Is there a way for you to take a look at my blood work. Please help.

Gabrielle: Hi Dr Cabral! Thank you so much for all you do! I love your podcasts I have become some what addicted to all the information you share ! I have a few questions I hope that's not too much! I have a 7 year old daughter who was recently diagnosed with PANS her Mycoplasma was not active but showed higher numbers and she tested positive for only band41 for Lyme and often has cold sores. We have done stool tests blood work and an organic acid test. Acording to our bio med Dr she has a "small bacterial overgrowth" which he said we would deal with in the future??? She is currently on antibiotics now 65 days and I really don't want to continue her down this road. She also takes coq10 lysine 3thorne multis vit c Nordic nats omega 3 meltaonin for bed and digestive enzymes when eating protein. I really want to remove the antibiotics but it seems every time we remove them within 3 days her motor tics aggression sleep disturbances etc are back full force what should we do next ? Thank you again so much !!!

Melissa: Hi Stephen, I just listened to your podcast about candida and wanted to learn more information about it so... im here. :) I noticed online you sell a package that is onsale right now for candida and yeast kill off to get back to healthy stages... Is this going to help me get back to normal gut health in 3 months? I know you don't quite know my status of my gut... and neither do i quite frankly, but I do know its to the point now where almost every time i eat i am either in pain or really gasey/bloaty. I just really want to make sure if im investing into this package, it will help me. I am currently unemployed and feel helpless with my issues... all doctors (like you said) think i just have IBS... but i know its alot deeper than just that. Thanks for your time, Melissa

 

Melodie: Hello Stephen! The vessels inside my nose are extremely dilated. It causes me to bleed easily, especially when I get too much sun. They also are dilated outside which has me dealing with rosacea from time to time (I've managed to get rid of redness naturally). Plus, I have very dark circles (brown / purple) under my eyes. People say it's genetics (hello Portuguese genes) and there's nothing to do about it. But, I'm wondering if all of this isn't related. Also, in your previous shows, you said to look for gut issues. So my question is : could dark circles and dilated vessels in the face be related to digestive system issues? Muito obrigada! Melodie 

Anonymous: Hi Dr. Cabral, I am wondering if there are any imbalances that could be the cause and or any natural ways to help with premature ejaculation. It is a subject that people don't talk about and so it is rather an embarrassing question. However, I have just been so curious if there are any natural ways to improve this that you would know of. Thanks

792: Peeling Nails, European Supplements, New Constipation Cause, Pregnancy Virus, Arginine Foods, The SIBO Cycle, Female Bruising (HouseCall)
24:50

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:

Louise: Dr. Cabral. I am so very grateful to have found you. You and your team do outstanding work, from your clinical expertise, to your podcasts, to your excellently laid-out website and user-friendly instructions for treatment protocols. I am starting my 7-day detox and will continue on with your candida protocol. Here is my question: I tend to have soft, peeling fingernails that break easily. What do you think about collagen, silica, and biotin supplementation?

Ruchi: Hi, I am looking for children candida and bacterial overgrowth protocol for my son. My 6 year old son is suspected to have candida yeast overgrowth and based on reviews from other moms, I am hoping that your protocol will help him. I am based in Netherlands and may not be allowed products from US. Do you have any branch in Europe from where we can order? Please advice. Thank you. Kind regards, Ruchi

Andrea: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have struggled with constipation for years now, and after trying several protocols, elimination diets, x-rays, etc. I still can't figure out the root cause. My question is this: Can a tight hip flexor or abdominal muscle impair digestive function? When I palpate my lower left quadrant, it feels dense and ropey, and I can't tell if I am feeling a strained muscle or part of the sigmoid colon. Thanks so much for any help you can provide! I love your podcast. I've learned so much and continue to learn more each day.

Anonymous: Hi Dr. Cabral, thank you for answering my question on HSVII and the CBO protocol. I am early in my 2nd pregnancy and wondering if the high/full spectrum vitamin C, full spectrum magnesium and reishi powder are safe throughout pregnancy. I take your Orthomolecular/Innate Iron prenatal combo. If so, at what dosages? Also after a emergency cesarean first pregnancy I have contemplated a planned cesarean this go around (never thought I’d say that, as I wanted a natural birth) however I also have a fear of possible outbreak the time of birth. Any recommendations for delivery? OB wanted me on valtrex 2 weeks before delivery which I never took because my baby came a month early. Less important, but curious, if the virus can be eradicated why would arginine foods still sometimes trigger it?

Anonymous: Hi Dr Cabral! Accounting to the Arginine / Lysine List on episode 273 someone with HSVII should also avoid blueberries? This is one of the foods that i have every day in my smoothie as one of your high recommendations. Pumpkin seeds are another healthy go-to I have a couple times a week and I even opt for the sprouted pumpkin seeds. Any suggestions?

Anonymous: Hi Dr Cabral! I have a question linking the gut, SIBO and immunity. Stool tests have shown that I have ‘nil’ lactobacilli and bifidobacterium. I also have a leaky gut (lactulose recovery 1.5% and mannitol recovery 19.6%) and an immune deficiency (igG subset deficiency). My question is - how do I restore balance in my gut when I don’t seem to tolerate any probiotics due to relapsing SIBO (I’ve tried many). The only way I seem to keep SIBO in check is to stay on maintenance herbal protocols, prokinetics and strict(ish) diet. I know this isn’t helping to heal the gut though ....yet all my symptoms (eg stomach spasms, nausea etc) return when I try to broaden diet or introduce probiotics, fermented foods etc. It’s a vicious cycle. How would you suggest moving forward to heal the gut?

Andrew: Thank you so much for everything you do for us and humanity. You are an amazing soul. Quick question for you regarding a friend of mine. She bruises extremely easy all over and has pretty severe menstrual cycles. No birth control pretty healthy. I suggested she take the adrenal + hormone lab. She also was recently on acutain for acne until I was finally able to get her to question it enough to where she ended up stopping at less than a month of use. Any advice is much appreciated. Thank you!!

788: The 10 Tell-Tale Signs of a Coming Disease (HouseCall)
34:56

Believe it or not, Conventional Medicine is actually beginning to not only accept, but scientifically verify hundreds of natural health based "signs of disease..."

From a Naturopathic, Ayurvedic, or Facial Diagnosis perspective these tell-tales have been known for thousands of years to reliably predict ongoing or future health based issues...

This is why it's so important to become more aware of your symptoms and how your body may be changing (even if it's subtle)...

So to make it easier for you to know where to look, on today's #CabralConcept 788 I will outline the 10 tell-tale signs of an upcoming disease (and of course how to overcome them) - Enjoy the show!

787: Stop Trying to Be Everything to Everybody (MM)
24:55

One of the big benefits of getting to help people work on their overall health & wellness on a daily basis is that I get to see trends...

As I listen to each person explain their story of how they got sick, put on weight, or can't seem to get well, patterns begin to form...

And these patterns start to look eerily similar to each other when it comes to very specific stressors in our lives...

One of those stressors that many people share is constantly being a people pleaser - to the detriment of one's own health...

786: Hashimoto's Test, Alcohol Sensitivity, Nutritional Programs, RA Triggers, Male Acne (HouseCall)
24:37

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!

Tania: Hello Stephen, I have been diagnosed with Hashimotos and was wondering what test is the best one to take from your lab to help me lead a healthier life and get off Synthroid for good ? I am taking different Synthroid doses on alternate days and still feel tired and have cold feet and hands. I am hoping you can help me. Regards, Tania 

Joyce: Thank you so much for all you do! I LOVE listening to your Pod-casts and I do your daily protocol daily! I also drop Vit D and occasional your CBD oil! I exercise daily during the week and eat clean! I generally feel awesome !! ( I am in my 50’s, some say I look like 40’s J ) Anyway in the past few years I have been become less and less tolerant to alcohol ( 1 glass a night not every night) and party occasions 2 glasses. Most times I drink , I will wake up at 2am with a bad headache, eye and neck ache which will last 24 hours no matter what I do.! Is it possible that I have developed an alcohol sensitivity ? I have really stopped drinking because of this, however when I do have the occasional glass I really do pay a price…. Your thoughts 

Michelle: Hello! I just wanted to ask a quick question regarding nutritional programs. I recently received my holistic nutritionist certification and I am looking to expand that. I was wondering if there are programs or certifications for nutrition and holistic health in general that you think are most beneficial. Thank you so much!

Denise: I know you said that some people can not get better because they hold on to anger. Do you think it could be a problem with EBV. I have RA and I think it was triggered by EBV. When I get stressed I think it might be triggered. I was on AIP for two years and was doing OK and slowly improving. Then under a stressful situation I had the RA triggered again. Now I am having a problem stopping the reaction. If I try to alkaline my diet it help some. I am still having inflamtion problems. I am also very cold all of the time then my body temperature shots up and wakes me up

My lymphatic system does not seem to be working well. If you have any advice please let me know. I love your podcasts and lessen all time hoping to figure it out. I have tried to work with some functional medicine people and had some testing done but it did not help much. Then when I added sunflower oil and vitamin B and did see some improvement. My hand joints are very deformed is there anything I can do to stop it from getting worse. I have a lot of pain in them now. Can you tell me why they continue to become deformed. Please help your number one fan.Denise 

JD: Hey Dr. Cabral, I just started listening to this podcast at the beginning of this year. I love it. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us. So I’m a 31 year old male and I have been getting pimples under my skin for for a while now in places like my jaw line and behind my ears on the side of my nose. Soon as i try to pop them they swell up to double the size. Sometimes it feels like I’m walking around with a golf ball attached to my chin. I also wash my face once a day. Just hoping you could give me a few reasons why it happens and maybe how to stop them. Cheers.

785: Persistent Acne, Speed Up Digestion, Overnight Detox, High Prolactin, Lean Midsection, JRA Solution (HouseCall)
28:04

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:

Louis: Dr. Cabral, thank you for everything that you do. You are truly amazing. I have an issue and I am looking for some guidance. For the past 8 years I've been dealing with acne, and I can't get rid of it. I also was diagnosed with colitis when I was 10 but have for the most part gotten that under control. Now, my acne goes away when I'm on vacation, but it always comes back when I'm home. Here is the kicker though... I'm a functional medicine practitioner. I've ran half a dozen tests on myself. I've rebalanced my hormones, got rid of parasites, cleared infections and detoxed heavy metals (I had major mercury toxicity), and yet my acne still persists. I even got implants in my teeth that had root canals because doctor Mercola said that he had acne up until he was 40 and it didn't go away until he got his implants. Now, of course my skin has drastically improved over the years, but it is not clear. I am wondering what you would suggest? thank you, Louis

Sharon : I have started committing to the 12 hour overnight fast you have discussed in your podcasts. Is there a anything you can recommend to help the body with digestion and detoxifying overnight?

Jenn: Hi Dr. Cabral, I am a 33 year old female. I am wondering how to lower high prolactin levels? My levels are elevated slightly 35.7 ng/mL. My levels have been elevated for a few years but getting higher. I have hypothyroidism and am on medication (Synthroid). My menstrual cycles are very irregular and I have had bouts of major hair loss 3 times over the past 3 years. My LH and FSH were tested and normal (both 4.5 mIU/mL on day 2 of cycle). I am currently not trying to get pregnant but a bit worried for my future. I'd really like to find a natural approach to lower the prolactin level. Thank you! 

Christine: Hi, I'm a non-standard PCOS woman (no polyps but have insulin resistance). Currently I take 1500 mg Metformin for this (I do not have diabetes), Cabral's activated daily ( as well as additional mtheylated B complex, zinc, vit d 5,000, VIt C, chlorella/spirulina, curcumin, folate 400mcg) and eat a fairly healthy diet cooking my own food lots of veggies and quality meats. I did the 3mo healthy gut protocol and sealed my gut, ending last month. I exercise 5-6 days per wk (pilates, HIIT's, a 20 min "long run", walks, strength train 3x/wk, ab focus on TVA). I am lean (18-19% body fat), lean/toned, probably an ecto/mesomorph blend body type and in excellent physical condition. I'm 41 years olds (mitochondria test came back as 33yrs body age) trying to conceive my 3rd child but have been experiencing multiple chemical pregnancies and miscarriages. I suspect I have high cortisol and some other hormone imbalances as I am lean and toned everywhere but my belly and have steadily gained 7-8lbs over a 3 month period while making dietary changes to stop this. I have a pouch and slight love handles. What lab test (or other recomendations) do you suggest that I do in order to lean out my midsection and see if any imbalances are contributing to my pregnancy troubles. Thank you!

 

Craig: My 7 year old daughter has had swollen joints for about the past 2 years. Her doctor tested her for JRA and the blood test came back negative. The swelling is in her wrists and ankles, but usually one side at a time. It doesn't keep her from doing things like gymnastics, soccer, basketball, etc., but I also know that she has a very high pain tolerance. We are going to Children's hospital in Los Angeles today for an appointment with a specialist, but I really want to pursue a more natural approach if possible. What tests would you recommend running as a good starting point? Would one or some of the 'Big 5' be a good place to start? Thank you for your help, I don't want my baby-girl to be in any kind of pain.

Can too much of a good thing suddenly become a very bad thing for your body, health & mind?

781: Should You Be Following a Low Lectin Diet? (TWT)
30:26

The new buzz around "lectins" has certainly taken the nutrition industry by storm, but is it all hype or is there some truth to it?

The low-lectin diet asserts that it's the "sticky" proteins in most #plantbased foods that cause everything from intestinal discomfort to brain fog to leaky gut to auto-immune conditions...

The question is are we looking at the wrong enemy in terms of foods, or is there something deeper going on within the gut that may cause lectins to be an issue in the first place?

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 781 for an depth look at whether or not you should be following a low lectin diet!

I believe the idea of "bucket lists" has begun to take a turn for the worse and is becoming synonymous with focusing on your mortality...

Instead, I believe creating a bucket list should actually be viewed more as a motivational tool for visualizing how much more life you have to live!

And as a result, I recommend that everyone construct multiple "buckets" for every stage of their life...

779: The Starting Point, EMF Blocker, Dryness, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, International Skype Consults (HouseCall)
28:45

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!

Jessica: Dear Dr Cabral,

I have been listening to and learning from your podcast for quite awhile now and really enjoy it! I have a complicated health diagnosis right now that I was hoping you could weigh in on. We recently moved cross country and I need to find a new functional doctor. My last was excellent and after years of feeling ill and having odd symptoms she finally diagnosed me with Chronic Inflammatory reaponse Syndrome from mold toxicity. I had every positive test required for the diagnosis. I have MARCoNS in my sinuses at high levels which I am working on with a compounded colloidal silver spray and cholestyramine as well as GI detox. My thyroid is low functioning so I am on naturthroid. I had 4 children in seven years with hyperemesis gravidarum and no nutritional support so my labs all came back low and depleted for vitamins, minerals and electrolytes etc. Because the mold toxicity has gone on for so long my system is stressed on labs also. Everything from low adrenal function to low MsH levels and elevated liver enzymes, h.pylori, epstein barr and harmful gut bacteria. Progesterone is very low and estrogen a little low also. My inflammation levels are sky high and I take a ton of anti-inflammatory supplements just to function. I get horrible sinus pain and headaches and my body swells and retains water when the inflammation is higher. Regardless of taking large doses of functional brand magnesium and ionic magnesium as well as mineral salt soaks, I still maintain very low magnesium levels. Side effects of all these issues are random fevers, chronic constipation, brain fog and chronic fatigue levels as well as the inability to sleep well. The worst part is the horrible horrible mood swings, panic attacks, terror, ocd thinking cycles and nightmares. I did not have these before I became ill and my doctor was positive it was from the mold and inflammation. I take large amounts of turmeric, phenibut, and cbd oil. Sometimes it switches off like a light and I regain emotional balance and other times I stay that way for a long time. I have a family to care for and I cannot seem to turn this around. I eat low glycemic, no sugar, no dairy, low grains with lots of green vegetables. Id love to do the Dr. Cabral detox because my doctor said one of my issues is being unable to clear things from my system but I am allergic to stevia and dandelion both pretty severely so I have no idea how to go about throroughly detoxing. I can have monk fruit so I was put on Paradise Herbs greens powder to help support my system. I have a huge basket of top quality functional supplements that I take daily and still feel unable to do life. I also have about 20 lbs to lose and cannot seem to budge the weight no matter what I do. Thank you Dr. Cabral. All of my best to you and your family.

Respectfully,

Jessica

Elizabeth: Hi Dr Cabral, I noticed while on the Berkey filter website they have a product called WAVEEX for protection from mobile phone radiation and another product called Zeolite for removing heavy metals and body toxins. I was quite intrigued by these and wondered if you could share your thoughts on them? Thank you for one of (if not the best) health podcasts out there! 

Donna: Dear Dr. Cabral,

I am a 51 year old female and I don't think my body is properly absorbing water. In May 2017 I did the 7 day detox, June-Aug. the 90 day Gut protocol followed by your probiotic / healthy gut support. I eat a clean primal diet ( fruit, veg., nuts, seeds, good sourced meat, free range chicken/ / eggs), exercise with resistence 3-4 times a week.

I take pharmaceutical grade fish oil, coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, butter from grass fed cows, Vit. D drops, Pure vit. C powder, have been one month now on your daily support shake and fruit / veggie powder.

I weigh 128, 5'6" and drink an average of 70 oz. of water daily from a Berkey.

My skin is dry and even through the night my throat gets dry and I have to drink some water. When I raise my arms above my head and pinch the skin around my left breast, the skin collapses together before going back to normal.

What might be blocking my body from proper water absorption?

Also, when I do Core Twist I actually hear a sound when I inhale / exhale out of my mouth. It sounds echoey as what I would imagine someone might kind of sound like with wheezing, but I'm not wheezing.

I haven't felt out of breath or had any restriction to breathing but it's as if there is something not clear in my lungs or chest? I have noticed this off and on for about two years and never hear it with cardio, resistance training, only core twists.

A recent Thermography scan suggests there is thermal asymmetry in the left ethmoid sinus consistent with sinus dysfunction. Midline hyperthermia in the lower anterior neck suggestive of possible thyroid dysfunction, inflammation of both carotid arteries. And scattered muscular / myofascial hyperthermia throughout the upper back and periodontal inflammation in which a few months ago I had a root canal right before hearing a pod cast that you would have recommended against doing!

What are your thoughts?

Thank You So Much!

Respectfully,

"In It To Win It"

 

Michelle: Hi Dr. Cabral,

Im obsessed with all of your podcasts and the information available to us from you!! Thank you. I ve searched through your archives and cant seem to find anything about oxygen therapy.

2 questions... What are your thoughts on HBOT with regards to autism and when to implement the therapy if at all.

Question 2, one of my biomedical facebook groups has really been into ozone water therapy. Im trying to do research and it doesn't have too much online in regards to safety, and how long to implement. I would really love to hear your opinion on drinking ozone water. (they say it gets rid of bacteria and h pylori in the gut)

Thank you for your thoughts!

Michelle 

Jessica: Hi, I live in Australia and I am currently undergoing an intensive gut healing protocol. I was wondering if Dr Stephen Cabral offers one off skype consults? I was wanting to check in and get a second opinion on the protocol I am currently following and what other tools I could be implementing. I have blasto, very low bacteroides, heavy metals and mould issues.

Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Kind regards, Jessica

778: GI Health, FIR Sauna, ALS Diagnosis, European Food Tests, Juice Plus, Decrease Milk Supply, Private Consulting (HouseCall)
26:53

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:

Anonymous: Hi Dr. Cabral, thanks so much for continuing to produce such helpful information and insight to healing and optimizing health. I listen to your podcast daily and have shared various episodes with family members whom I believe would benefit. My question is about GI health--I've been working with my naturopathic doctor to heal mild gut inflammation I began experiencing around this past Christmas. In addition, I've also been working with diet and supplementation (digestive enzymes, probiotic, aloe vera after meals to soothe gut, etc) to address improved gut motility to eliminate constipation and now have improved bowel regularity and volume (BM at least 1-2 times per day, Bristol scale type 3 or 4). This week I had an ultrasound with my OB/GYN to rule out concerns I had with pelvic pain; while the ultrasound was negative for gynocological concerns, the tech reported that the imaging process was made more difficult due to an "overabundance of stool". I'm confused about why I am otherwise not feeling constipated and having productive BM's--is it possible that my gut motility is adequate but I'm somehow not emptying my bowels completely or have buildup in my large intestine? Most every BM feels "complete". I look forward to your response and appreciate your time!

Michael: I enjoy your podcast very much. I found out about you from the Food Heals podcast. I live in Ann Arbor, MI, and so far could not find an FIR Detox Sauna based on your recommendations. Before I buy anything, I'd like to try it with medical supervision. Could you help with some suggestions? Thanks.

Jessica: Hi, I heard Dr Cabral on the Melissa Ambrosini podcast. Dr Cabral was inspiring to say the least. I'll get straight to the point. My father in law has recently been diagnosed with ALS. Is this something you can help with at your studio? We have confirmation from the neurologist, we have just been to see a naturopath and she is running some tests (to name a few: Hair trace mineral analysis, Magnesium serum levels, Zinc status test). From the podcast you seemed like the kind (only) person who could help. The MD doctors here just gave the diagnosis and said 'Go write your bucket list and live your best life for the next 2-5 years' WTF! After some research I have come to realise ALS is not some mystery disease but like all 'disease' just the body telling us that these are toxic things in there affecting our system. We are in Australia, willing to travel! Can you help or lead us in the right direction? Jess

Bruno: Hi Dr Cabral, huge fan from Europe. I would love to do the food sensitivity test, but I saw that you don't ship to my country. Any recommendations on tests to do here. Can't seem to find anything similar here. Cheers! Bruno

Katie: Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us, since learning about your podcast I feel I finally have information I can trust for my daily questions about health and wellness - I credit my current quality of life to you because I now know dairy, gluten & egg are sensivities for me and taking those foods out has helped me more than I could ever have enjoyed those foods - truly life changing. My question is about Juice Plus - I have been taking the orchard and vineyard blend capsules for a little over a year and because last year was my best year yet I am scared to stop taking them BUT would really like to know what you think. I stopped taking their daily complete shake because it contains pumpkin (one of my other food sensitivities) and switched to the equilibrium daily support shake. I now take my fruit and veggie juice plus capsules in the morning with my lime water with the hope they are comparable with the juiced powder you talk about all the time. Can’t wait to hear what you think - sure appreciate your thoughts and expertise!

Jeff: Hi Dr. Cabral, I’m writing on behalf of my wife, Amanda. She has currently been nursing our daughter for 6 months. She has gotten several clogged ducts which resulted in Mastitis at least 3 times already. She has been prescribed Keflex for the infection each time but we are not crazy about the idea of taking that many rounds of antibiotics. She would like to stop breastfeeding seeing as she’s back to work and has had several complications with going several hours without nursing or pumping. Unfortunately, the typical advice is “skip feedings and pump less” but she seems to have an oversupply and that method just results in more clogged ducts. She has tried several natural remedies, I.e. cabbage leaves, sage/peppermint teas. We are now worried it may be an issue with her prolactin levels. Her OBGYN Just today suggested a prolactin inhibitor. She has reduced the number of feeding/pumping sessions but her milk supply remains the same.

777: "Functional" Nutrient Deficiencies, 3x5 Exercise Routine, Super-Nutrient Manganese (FR)
29:24

One of the major issues with our current healthcare system is the fact that we don't consider people "unwell" unless they have a gross abnormality on their blood work labs...

However, waiting until people are sick we are negligently allowing people to walk around with nutrient deficiencies (that blood work can't pick up) and toxicities, which later cause the dis-eases we're trying to prevent in the first place...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 777 for more details on that topic as well as some ground breaking research on a 3x5-minute workout and our super-nutrient of the week discussion - Enjoy the show!

775: The 7 Contributing Factors That Create Poor Health (WW)
32:23

We tend to look at disease as something that's out of our control and that it just happens to us...

Conventional medicine and the media has brainwashed us into thinking it's simply "bad genetics," or a normal process of aging...

However, none of that is true and holds very little weight when you begin to understand the "pathology" of dis-ease in the body and why we become sick or overweight unintentially...

And, the great news is that all these poor health conditions are reversible, as long as we begin to uncover the underlying imbalances that created the environment within our body that allowed for the expression of these symptoms in the first place!

Tune into today's #CabralConcept #775 to learn the 7 contributing factors that create poor health and what you can do about it - Enjoy the show!

774: Why Running Just Your Blood Work is Never Enough (TWT)
28:54

Last week I detailed what you should request for your annual blood work (and why), and I still stand by the importance of running those labs, but...

Running just blood work will never catch everything...

For example, it's near impossible to figure out gut dysfunction (GI issues), allergies, heavy metals, cortisol, and other hidden imbalances through your blood work alone...

This is why Functional Medicine lab testing has become so popular over the last decade...

It is the ONLY way to figure out what the underlying root causes are to the wellness, weight loss, or anti-aging issues you may be facing...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 774 to learn why running just your blood work is never enough and what other labs you may want to look into based on your conditions - Enjoy the show!

773: Make the Choice to Never Complain Again (MM)
26:03

Have you ever found yourself in a downward cycle where everything seems to be going the wrong way...

During these times it's easy to play the role of the victim and complain about our current circumstances...

We've all been there and we certainly feel justified in our complaints since after all we've got a lot worth complaining about!

However, in the long-run this cycle of complaining actually hurts far more than it could ever benefit us...

772: The UK, Gynecomastia, Bone Broth Myth, Sauna Recommendation, Starter Lab Test, Clean Out the Candida (HouseCall)
26:42

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!

Dalila: Hello, Could you kindly tell me, weither you deliver to England, UK. I am very interested in doing your wellness and food sensitivity test! If not, would you be able to recommend anywhere in the south of England that may practice something similar to what you do. This would be of great help. I love listening to the podcast, very informative. Thank you for your time. Kind Regards, Dalila

Aaron: Hi Stephen, thanks for the podcast. I have been struggling with gynecomastia caused by low testosterone. Everywhere I look online seems to say that since it is not weight based there is not much to do. I also do not want to begin taking testosterone. Thanks

Tenille: Greetings from Hobart, Australia Dr Cabral! I really appreciate your podcasts, the wisdom you share & am really hoping you can provide some guidance for my own health issues. I ordered various tests last year and now have a clear picture of what I'm dealing with. I'm seeing a local Dr (integrative medicine specialist); her knowledge is amazing, but admits she's honestly not 100% sure of an exact diet plan to suggest for all of my symptoms (aside from a cup of organic bone broth 3 times/day to repair stomach lining/heal gut, no fruit, no starchy veggies, 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar daily, only eat soluble fibre (ie: soaked psyllium), no coffee, no yeast products or gluten, etc), which I find extremely difficult to navigate & follow as it's bland, unappealing & I honestly haven't been able to stick to it :-(

I recently listened to your podcast via Melissa Ambrosini's show & believe you may be the person who can help :-)

Here are the results of various blood tests, colonoscopy/endoscopy & complete stool test:

- no h.pylori or parasites detected

- Aerobes: Overgrowth of streptococcus gallolyticus (formerly called strep. Bovis); thankfully colonoscopy detected no bowel cancer, nor polyps. Normally streptococcus level allowed is <5%; I have 58.33%.

E.coli undergrowth; level is 41% (should be 70-90% range)

Anaerobes: bacterioids low - only 39.5% & only 3 species detected.

-severely lactose intolerant

- GORD/erosion of oesophagus/experiencing frequent reflux/heartburn

- high level of candida overgrowth

- zinc level is 10.4 (low considered 11.5 on Australian scale & 23 considered high)

- copper toxicity found: Australian scale states 8 is low & 21 is highest margin. I'm 38.4 (extremely high)

- low bile production level

- oestrogen dominance

- not breaking down fats properly

- leaky gut / malabsorption of vitamins & minerals

- luckily all thyroid levels were within normal ranges

I have also gained 20kg in 2 years. I have been on the contraceptive pill for 23 years now (tried to stop it on 6 occasions only to have severe acne breakouts).

- experiencing very low energy, fatigue, brain fog, gurgling stomach, etc.

I dearly want to fix my gut, absorb all the vitamins & minerals naturally from veggies, fruit & meat, and then finally; stop taking the pill. I've spent over $3,000 on testing, hospital visits, supplements & Drs appts in the past 4 months. I've also completed the OAT test, but can't afford to return my Dr just yet for the results, as her visits are so expensive and I'm trying to renovate my home on the top of everything else.

I imagine your CBO protocol is probably my next best step, but is it possible to purchase a shopping list or a nutritional guide (eg: month 1 of the protocol) separately, then the other 2 months in due course? I'm trying to find the most economical solution as it has been an expensive road getting to this point & stressing me out like crazy!!

I've been prescribed in the past months the following:

- 1 mth of Nexium (1 tab daily) for GORD. Reflux has returned nightly since stopping it.

- 2 mth course of Nilstatin to combat candida overgrowth

- high strength vitamin c daily

- co-enzyme Q10 daily for fatigue

- Uflora Intensive (1 daily) made by Metagenics

- Acitvated Vit. B6 (1 daily)

- Acticated Vit B (B12, etc) 1 daily

- zinc citrate (30mg/day zinc equivalent) - 1 daily (to help pull out copper slowly)

I was also prescribed 2 x 2 week courses of Erythromycin initially to try & kill off the strep. Gallolyticus

(Eg, 2 wks of antibiotic, then 2 wks Uflora intensive to try to rebuild gut flora, then 2wks antibiotic/ then continue to take Uflora.

I know this is a long message, but I wanted you to have a clear picture of where I'm at. I'm doing all I can to be proactive in learning, researching & funding better health for my body, but I really need some expert advice to put me on the right track moving forward.

With deepest gratitude, Tenille

Dee: Hi Dr Cabral, We recently purchased a Therasage personal sauna on your recommendation. We love it! I’m wondering if there is a guide as to how long you should stay in the sauna and also at what temperature? I’ve googled it, but there are many differing opinions. I remember one of your podcasts said just 20 minutes is beneficial, but we don’t even start sweating until after 15-20 minutes at 140 degrees. Thanks for any info you may have on the subject.

Jennifer: Hello, Jenn here. I listen to your podcasts during my commute to work on a daily basis and enjoy learning. i am very interested in health and wellness and am hoping to transition into that arena in the future. I am going to order a few of your tests that I think would be right for me and see where I am. Currently I have no major issues, that I am aware of. I am 43, 3 year plant based with minimal processed food and sugar. I occasional drink. I get my B12 and Vit D checked often and taken both supplements. I think the hormone test might me best for me, thoughts?? I just want to be my best self and improve anyway I can.

I also want to schedule an appointment with you or your staff for my husband, Matt. Not sure what my options are and pricing. He is 40, 3 year plant based as well. We both train for 70.3 triathlons. We believe he has some sensitivity to gluten, do to his congestion when drinking beer. Whenever he trains consistently for a few months he ALWAYS gets sick. He has constant sinus, mucus stuff going on. He got the sinus surgery and did not help. We tried gluten free for 3 months and seemed to help only minutely. This has been going on for over 10 years, even before we has plant based. He too takes B12 and Vit D. It makes him depressed and discouraged to workout and train when he always gets sick and it sets him back. We would love to figure this out. Thanks, Jennifer

Tila: Hello Dr. Cabral, I'm trying to make this as short as possible. Since I was a baby I had multiple ear infections (which meant rounds of antibiotics) and because of that I had tonsillectomy when I was only 2 years old. I got my first food allergies and sensitivities when I was around 5 and had always stomach issues when growing up. In my teens I was sick all the time, I had low fever almost daily, stomach issues (which I thought were normal) and multiple sinus infections (more antibiotics).

I kind of just got used to feeling tired all the time and having my stomach issues. Fast forwarding to my College years. I got super busy, like most of us. I did college year faster than others which meant long days and weekends studying. I was also in long distance relationship which brought more stress in my because of 10 hour time difference. I think I finally hit my limit. One day, out of nowhere I got really serious allergic reaction from peanuts (anaphylactic shock), I ended up going to hospital for a day. MD's did one good thing, they sent me to do more food allergy testing. I had so many food allergies and sensitivities it was crazy! No wonder my stomach had been hurting for years.

I got some diet help from a professional, I removed all the foods that caused trouble for me and I started to follow SCD Diet. It helped so much. Year later I moved to United States. I had lof of time to study about nutrition and I got really into plant based diet. However, I was also emotionally stressed because of being far away from my family and I started to eat more sugar than ever again. In couple years, my stomach issues were back.

This year I went back following SCD diet. It's hard because I would love to eat mostly plant based diet, but it seems like my stomach has hard time to handle certain carbs and sugars. I wonder if my gut bacteria is still unbalanced or if I have parasites/candida? What would you recommend to do? I would really love to feel energized and live my life without my stomach issues. Especially, because like you, I would love to help people with their health issues in the future, but I don't feel super confident, because I can't even fix my own issues. Thank you so much!

771: Full Diagnosis, "No Frills" Diet, Wean Off Medication, GenoType vs. PhenoType, Cravings After a Cheat (HouseCall)
27:40

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:

Ruben: Hello Dr. Cabral, First of all THANK YOU for putting in the time to put out the podcast on a regular basis. I wasn't sure what address to reach out with my question, so I figured I would start with this one. The question is actually for my wife. She had a annual exam yesterday and the Cholesterol test came back high. The doctor prescribed her a low dose Statin. My wife has been really sad since then because she really watches what she eats and is active.

here is a brief overview:

Height: 5'8

Weight: 134 lbs

Age: 38

- Does not eat beef/pork

- Eats chicken ( once a week)

- eats fish ( once a week)

- drinks a green drink 98% of the time, daily ( spinach, banana, apple, ginger, tumeric, spirulina, water)

- when she doesn't pull her back ( she has few back issues), she works out about 4 times a week.

- workouts consist: 10 minutes cardio fast pace, 20-30 minutes strength and conditioning.

- Prior to the blood test she hasn't really worked out for about 2 weeks

here are the numbers ( fasted test)

Chol: 280

Trigly: 173

HDL: 51

Chol/HDL rate: 5.49

LDL: 194

Non HDL Chol : 229

Rest of the numbers look good.

She has a history of high cholesterol even though she doesn't eat bad at all

2012 : Chol 169 | Tri 62 | HDL 40 | Ratio: 4.23 | LDL 117

2015: Chol 246 | Tri 139 | HDL 46 | Ratio: 5.35 | LDL 172

2017: Chol 226 | Tri 186 | HDL 47 | Ratio: 4.81 | LDL 142

2018: Chol 280 | Tri 173 | HDL 51 | Ratio: 5.49 | LDL 194

She does not want to start taking a statin but she really feels defeated, so I am reaching out to see if there are any other tests that she could do to make sure there aren't other things that are actually causing the high cholesterol. Also, if she can do any of your protocols or any of the daily support products.

Any info that could give us some hope or something to try in the near future would be really really appreciated! Kind Regards, Ruben

Breanna: Hi Dr. Cabral. Thank you so much for providing us with such amazing content, and inspiring many to live happier, healthier and happier lifestyles. I listen to your podcast daily and have providing me with the knowledge I've always wanted to know growing up. I have a little story for you. For as long as I can remember I would be in excruciating pain 24/7, especially in the morning. I was diagnosed with lactose intolerance as a baby, but it wasn't until I was 11 years old that the doctors diagnosed me with Celiac Disease... then depression, then anxiety, then acid reflux, then anemia... my symptoms never went away, my intestines never fully recuperated and I was taking 5 different pills daily at 12 years old, despite eliminating gluten. I stopped taking all medication a year ago because I was fed up and I am now 18. Through your podcast I now realize why all these extra symptoms occurred and how they were going against me.. the health system failed me. My intestines still aren't fully recuperated but this isn't part of my question. I just believe my health background may play a part in my current situation. I was always super active growing up as I was a competitive dancer. A year ago I decided to start going to the gym and got approached by a coach who offered her services to help prepare me for a bodybuilding competition. I did my first competition in april and won 2nd place. That diet wasn't bad and didn't have to do too much cardio as I was only 17 and she didn't want anything bad to happen. 3 months later I started prepping for my second show, at 18 years old. My "diet" lasted 12 weeks. She started me off at 1800 calories, lowered weekly and by the end I struggled to loose weight. For the last 4 weeks I was doing 2 hours of cardio + 1 hour weight training, and my diet composed of 5 chicken breasts and 2 tbsp ground flaxseed (+ 1/4 cup oats ONCE a week on leg day, and cut out those carbs 2 weeks out). How did I survive? Barely. I realize that this is extremely unhealthy, but I was too far in to give up. I had 0 days off the gym in 4 months. Also, I was extremely constipated. There was a period where I went 4 weeks only pooping 3 times and had to use diuretics each time to force myself to go!!! I started taking probiotics as another coach had told me this helped her use the bathroom, and it did for a while. My body toxicity was so high. She also advised me to use "estro control" to help get rid of that toxicity and loose my last pounds on my legs. I won first place by the way :). But here is my question.. what exactly did I do to my body? And what could I do differently next time? From listening to your podcasts, (especially your low carb diet ones), I realize I lowered my metabolism dramatically, lowered my thyroid, increased cortisol, burned a lot of muscle and increases levels of disease from purely eating chicken. To put in perspective, I'm 18, 5ft, mesomorph body type, was 95 pounds before going to the gym, gained a lot of muscle and started my diet at 112 lbs but cut down to 98 lbs for my competition. To reverse diet, she advised me to eat 200g carbs, 100g protein and 45g fat, and 0 cardio.I had very minimal "cheats", meaning I only eat whole clean foods such as sweet potato, rice, berries, gluten free oats, veggies, protein powder, eggs, chicken, extra lean ground turkey, rarely red meat, nuts, peanut butter and coconut oil (literally all I eat). Following this diet I am 5 weeks post show and 120 lbs!!! I went from being 10% body fat to having the most fat on my body I've ever had. So what do I do now? Do I just follow this new diet and wait for my metabolism to reset? I know that lowering my calories and doing cardio is only going to hurt me more in the long run (metabolism, thyroid, cortisol)... so I'm just confused and extremely unhappy. On top of that, I haven't gotten my period in months (and no I'm not pregnant). I now go to the gym 5 times a week to weight train and I take multivitamins, omega 3, potassium, digestive enzymes and probiotic5, but no more estro control... should I still be taking these supplements? I have recently started implementing your morning routine (water, yoga, smoothie) and definitely feeling better, but not looking better. Can you help me? I'm sooooo lost. And I know you are the best of the best, and the only person I would trust answering this properly, as you always look at all perspectives.

Amanda: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have been listening to your show for over a year and absolutely love it. I receive more knowledge from you to help my clients than most other sources.

My question is about a current private client I am working with.

She is about 65, has had 2 heart attacks in the last 8 years (the last one about 2 years ago) and she is on about 12 different medicines (metformin, wellbutrin, Spironolactone, Zetia, *Metoprolol ER, *Crestor, *Aspirin, Cymbalta, Levothyroxine, Plavix, Avapro) progesterona along with 2 topical hormones estrogen and testosterone.

My question is, what would be your order of operations for this client. She is open and ready to change her diet and lifestyle and ideally, one day she would love to not be taking any medications or the least amount possible.

I've got her on your daily support shake and doing berry smoothies daily. We are working on increasing her stomach acid and next I would like to help her get rid of heavy metals (is there something you recommend for this that won't interfere with her medications?)

She is on so many medications and I can see that they are crossing to cause many of her symptoms, I also want to be sure to take things really slow and respect her doctor decisions (although she has tried to come off medications many times and they almost always resist her requests).

Any advice would be great, thanks for all that you do

 

Judy: Hi Dr. Cabral! I just finished your podcast (713) on body types and Inhave a follow up question. I am currently on week 2 of your detox and I have suffered for over a decade with adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism. Therefore, I have metabolism issues that I didn’t always have at a young age. When determining my body type, should I consider my current state or when I aas a kid with no health issues?

Judy: Hi Dr. Cabral, In your podcasts, you mentioned the importance of a cheat meal once a week for grehlin and leptin levels. I have a hard time resisting cravings once I cheat. I am on week 2 of your detox and no linger crave all the bad foods. I worry I will go downhill again once I allow myself the bad foods. What do you recommend I do to prevent a relapse? Are the better cheat foods to stick with that still address grehlin and leptin and avoid a relapse? What about portion sizes for cheat meals?

768: The Sweet Science of Heart Rate Training Made Easy (TT)
21:35

I'm a big fan of not always stressing yourself out with the "micro" or the details of designing a workout program...

I'd rather have you start to move your body, have some fun doing it, and enjoy all the mental and physical benefits that come with exercise...

However, at some point you may want to take your workouts to the next level and when that time comes one of the best ways to do that is by listening to your body as to how hard you can push it...

Everyone is different, which is why using a heart rate monitor can be a simple, but HIGHLY effective way to burn more fat, boost your metabolism, and keep your workouts safe at the same time...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 769 where I share with you the "sweet science" of heart rate training and exactly how to integrate it into your workouts - Enjoy the show!

767: What to Ask for (and Why) When Running Your Annual Blood Work (TWT)
21:53

Running your blood work every 6-12 months should be mandatory in order to "catch" serious health issues quickly...

The problem is that not all MDs or PCPs will run all the lab tests you should be looking at...

For example, most MDs will run your cholesterol, but they overlook homocysteine and CRP, which when all elevated can spell serious trouble for inflammatory heart disease...

Of course, all of these dis-eases are correctable, but you do need to know what you're dealing with in the first place...

So, on today's #CabralConcept 767 I want to share with you what to ask for (and why) when running your annual blood work - Enjoy the show!

766: How to Make Yourself Happy (MM)
30:03

Many people think happiness is elusive and that it's not something they could possibly achieve for any sustainable amount of time...

I used to feel this same way until I began to use a simple system that all begins with realizing when you are at your best and feeling great...

What I've found now is that life isn't supposed to be perfect all the time, but I believe we can feel happy the majority of the time if we first know what happiness looks like to us...

Today, on #CabralConcept 766 I want share with you the mental exercise I use in my private practice to demonstrate how you can make yourself happy on daily basis in a very practical way - Enjoy the show!

765: Carpal Tunnel, Mystery Jitteriness, Bells Palsy, ADHD, Nauseous After Eating, Prenatal Iron (HouseCall)
26:56

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!

Viviane: Love your podcast, have learned so much. ok, straight to the point. My hands get numb at night , both hands, and wake me up several times during the night. Started a long time ago with the left hand , but now are both. Dr. said I had a very light case of carpal tunnel 5 years a go, gave me shots and for a couple years , it was fine. Came back and much worse. went again to DR, did nerve tests and same diagnosis. Got the shots again , which did ABSOLUTELY nothing this time, but made my hands very much uncpable for a couple days. I get numb even sleeping with braces they prescribed. My hands feel sore and hurtful , tender all day from the numbness at night. it is not the position i sleep in....please give me some light. 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 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. Thank you Joey

Sue: Hi Dr. Cabral, Before Christmas I was under a lot of stress at work. We took a family trip after the holiday and on the first night I woke up and half of my face was paralyzed. The next day I phoned my dr. who prescribed predinisone and antiviral medicines which I took but I've seen no improvement. My dr says I have bells palsy. Can you please help me to understand why this may have happened and how I can begin to heal my body from the inside out? its been 3 weeks and there has been no change to my paralysis so far.

 

Travee: what nutritional supplements would help a child with ADHA?

 

Matt: Hi Dr. Cabral- Thank you so much for all you are doing to help people. I have a question about my wife and some nausea she is experiencing. She gets nauseous after almost every meal (and has for years) and needs something like gum or a piece of candy to get rid of the nausea. She is 35 years old and healthy. No smoking, known medical conditions, or health "dis-eases." :) I want to try to help her so we tried to find trigger foods to no avail. It appears unlinked to any foods or times of the day. Her grandmother also has the same issue and her nausea is helped by smoking cigarettes. I would love any advice or suggestions. Thanks again for everything.

Taylor: Hi Dr. Cabral, As always thank you for the ways you share your wisdom & expertise for the community! I just received my pregnancy protocol in the mail from you. I am curious about the iron. I am planning on taking the prenatal vitamins for the next 3 months and then begin trying to conceive. Should I be taking the iron supplements now or when I get pregnant? I have heard conflicting things about if women get to much iron then they can easily overdose ect. Can you give me some more insight why taking iron is important and the specifics on if I should be taking it before conception/after conception? Thanks! Taylor

764: Corticobasal Degeneration, Nutrition Training, International Clients, Iron During Pregnancy, Kidney Failure, Mild Candida, Low Oxalate Diets (HouseCall)
30:53

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:

Elizabeth: Hi Stephen, I have a friend who has a family member suffering with corticobasal degeneration. Understand it's a rare dis-ease and wondered if you have had any experience with this treatment or if it's possible to be treated? Similar to yourself I believe everything can be treated or reversed but I am not familiar with CBD. Thanks for all you do and inspiring others to better health!

Rachel: Good Morning Dr Cabral my name is Rachel I located in Queensland Australia. I have listened to your podcast with Melissa Ambrosini and your words spoke to me. I would love to know if you take online clients from Australia? I am also extremely interested if you offer any nutrition training? I am looking to start my course very soon and I would love to be able to take part any training that you offer as I really understanding the concept of what is best when it comes to health is individual for every BODY! Any information you could give me would be greatly appreciated, even if you can suggest a training course that I could complete that you would suggest.

 

Katie & Susanne: Hi there, I’m in Australia and I would love to have a consultation with him as his story really struck a cord with me and he sounds like the right person to help me get well again. Is that possible via Skype of do I need to be living in America? Thanks so much. Kind regards, Katie

 

Danielle: Hello! I would really appreciate your advice on post pregnancy iron deficiency anemia please, also what are your thoughts on black strapp molasses as a natural cure/treatment? Many thanks Danielle

 

Lindsey: I am a firm believer of functional medicine and rebalancing the body to heal any disease. My daughter’s father was recently diagnosed with severe kidney failure. They are still running test to see what the next step is but right now they’re thinking dialysis. He’s 34 years old and has been on hydrochlorothiazide, verapamil, and enalapril for high blood pressure for the pass 6+ years. He believed his high blood pressure was linked to these terrible migraines he’s been suffering from for over 10 years. He was an avid user of over the counter pain pills to help with the migraines, especially excedrin. He follows the standard American diet with a lot of diary and no pork or red meat. I’ve listened to your podcasts on high blood pressure, migraines, high histamine foods, etc. Along with the other information I know, I’m starting him on a detox tomorrow eliminating a lot of the foods he currently eats. My thoughts are to find out what is triggering his migraines because I am almost certain it’s food related. He’s also going to start adjusting his schedule to getting 8 hours of sound sleep, working out (cardio and light weight training), and intermittent fasting. My question is, am I on the right track? My goal is to get him off of the pharmaceutical drugs and show him that he can balance his high blood pressure by changing his diet and lifestyle. I want him to work with a functional medicine doctor but he’s still skeptical and brainwashed by conventional medicine. He’s still taking his high blood pressure medication because everyone is telling him to keep doing it. What supplements can he add to help with the kidney failure and stress? And also, what labs would you recommend him to start with?

 

Jen: Hi Dr Cabral, I was recently diagnosed with a mild case of Candida. My MD wanted to put me on antibiotics, but not only do I prefer to cure it naturally, as I understand it, Candida is fungal and not bacterial, so antibiotics wouldn’t work anyway. Is that correct? I wondered if you could recommend a natural way to cure this mild case? I understand certain foods like cold smoothies and salads, can add to the dampness in the body and that I should stick to warm veggies and lean protein. Would that be your recommendation as well? Also, I have heard about accelerated silver and wondered about your thoughts on using it? Any advise is MUCH appreciated and respected. Thank you Jen

Mary: Hello. I use your daily nutritional support shake and fruit and vegetable blend and have also used the detox you offer. I perceive that I am getting great health benefits from all of these products and have gotten several friends and family members hooked as well. I also listen to your podcast and find it very valuable and educating. Thank you for all you do. Could you explain your thoughts on the fad of low lectin and low oxylate diets and how this plays into your suggestion of having a predominately plant based diet. I would also like to know your thoughts on the Ayurvedic perspective of regular green smoothies being aggravating on the physiology of many people as they can be hard to digest. I presume this is due to the high fiber content and maybe the possible affects of lectins and oxylates on the immune system? Thank you for your time!
