Today's #FridayReview is dedicated to the science & art of Orthomolecular Medicine, which is just fancy talk for using vitamins and nutritional supplements to heal your body!

I started studying this type of medicine about 10 years ago and it was at that time that I realized in some difficult to treat health & weight loss cases food alone was not going to be the answer...

The reason for this is that when the digestive system becomes too weak and the gut has become too imbalanced and inflamed people cannot adequately absorb the proper nutrition from the foods they eat - even if they're organic and whole foods. 

At this point the best way to heal is to give the body building blocks that it needs to begin to repair itself. As a doctor it is not my job to tell the body how to rebalance itself, however it is my job to give it everything it needs to return to proper function, as well as remove the toxicities from it that hinders it from efficiently become well again...

To learn more about Orthomolecular Medicine and how nutritional supplements can heal your body, be sure to check out today's #CabralConcept podcast!

Doing a "cleanse" seems to be the talk of the town lately and they've certainly grown in popularity since celebrities starting using them a few decades back...

But did you know that cleanses have been used for thousands of years? In Ayurvedic, Chinese, and Greek medicine we see thousands of documents showing their recommendations and successes...

Most people could greatly benefit from an intestinal cleanse, as long as they are doing it safely and effectively - And, as long as it is a short term protocol. (It's important that your bowels do not begin to rely on a laxative instead of your own natural intestinal movement.)

Tune in today to the #Cabral Concept podcast to check out the details of what I recommend in practice, who intestinal cleanses are best for, and what products I feel are safe to use...

Enjoy the show!

Allergic reactions inside the body are one of the most under diagnosed causes for many of the health issues people are suffering from...

The reason they're often missed is because your body doesn't always immediately react to an allergen or "pathogen" that's invading your body. Often times the histamine reactions build up over days and it's only then do you see symptoms.

If you've ever suffered from allergies, hives, food sensitivities, environmental allergies, migraines, headaches, fatigue, reflux, digestive difficulties, skin issues, or any type of inflammation I recommend you check out today's Cabral Concept podcast!

Enjoy the show!

There's an old tired cliche that goes like this, "The only way you can fail, is if you give up..."

Although, I'm not a big fan of cliches there is a certain truth to this saying. However, the truth lies more in the fact that there are only so many variables and possibilities you can try before becoming successful and reaching your goal.

The issue is that most people go about trying to achieve their goals and dreams all wrong... In today's Cabral Concept podcast I explain what the right ways are to make success inevitable and finally come out on top!

Don't miss today's show on why you will be successful!

Today I want to teach you why over complicating your workouts doesn't get you better results!

I see far too many people making up insanely difficult exercise routines & programs for no reason whatsoever - except to make the exercise even harder and look "cooler."

It's that type of mentality that ultimately gets people injured and pushes them away from working out and making exercise a long-term part of an overall healthy lifestyle...

Right now, I want to talk about what does actually make up a great workout and how you can truly get better results by keeping things simpler...

Enjoy today's #CabralConcept show!

Adding more fiber to your daily diet is one of the simplest ways to lose weight while improving your health -

Today, I want to explain to you how to choose the right fiber type (soluble or insoluble) and how some types of fiber may not be the best idea to add into your daily meals until you correct your digestive issues...

Plus, I'm going to review how many grams of fiber you should be taking in per day and what some of the best foods (and safe supplements) are for easily reaching that daily goal.

One day a few months back I was trying to explain to one of the wellness clients in my Boston practice how to look at food & digestion in a new way...

I wanted them to understand there are no "good" or "bad" wholefoods - only foods your body can easily digest, breakdown, and utilize...

It's important to understand that when your digestive system is weak and you have reflux, bloating, gas, cramping, or stomach pain that many of the foods we deem healthy are actually going to cause you more harm than good...

Check out today's Cabral Concept where I reveal the "Fork Test" solution that I give to my digestive based wellness clients!

Let's face it, sometimes you just have a bad day or week (or month!) and just need a way to hit the reset button...

It's happened to everyone, but starting over is often easier said than done. The tough part is that our bad habits have begun to set in and now it's harder to break those patterns and adopt new ones -

This is why I believe small incremental changes don't always work for a lot of people. What you may need is to use the "pull the bandaid off fast" approach. This will allow you to create a "pattern interrupt..."

Listen in today on the #CabralConcept podcast on iTunes (or link in my bio - just click my name above) and hear how I teach my private clients how to hit the reset button & start fresh for best results!

Right now there's a lot of debate between those that believe workouts should be ultra-short 4-minute bursts and those that feel only longer 60-minute+ exercise programs will get results...

As with everything, bio-individuality should decide who needs shorter workouts and who would benefit from longer routines - This helps eliminate a one-size-fits-all approach and allows for more individuality & customization...

Plus, your personal goals, the amount of days you exercise per week, and what type of shape you're currently in should be taken into account when choosing workout types and length...

For more details on how to decide what works best for your body, check out today's #CabralConcept podcast for details!

Over a billion people suffer from poor sleeping patterns - I used to be one of those people.

Sometimes it would take me hours to fall asleep and some night's I wouldn't sleep at all. Then there were the nights where I'd fall asleep, only to wake up multiple times throughout the night...

None of this is normal and it took me years of study to find the underlying root causes for sleep issues. And although there are dozens of symptoms and specific issues surrounding sleep, there only 3 main reasons why you can't sleep.

Today, I break down those 3 reasons why you can't sleep so that you can get your life back on track and enjoy the deep, peaceful, and restorative sleep you were meant to have!

It took me a decade to grasp this "philosophy," and it's not something you ever truly master...

Too often we find ourselves in a state of perfectionism, where we want everything to be perfect before we even get started - Or worse, sometimes we're extremely hard on ourselves when we mess up on the path to achieving our goals...

After having worked with thousands of clients, my mission is to help them to see that the aim is never to be perfect, but rather to make progress on a weekly basis. You don't need to be perfect in order to achieve everything you want in life!

Once you give yourself some room to breathe and accept that you'll never be perfect, you are then free to try new things and understand you will have your ups & downs, and failures & successes... But in the end you'll be happier because you'll never have the regrets of never trying at all...

It's time to start dreaming big and then making small steps each week towards those goals!
