I'm back with another #FridayReview and today I want to share with you a fantastic book on Functional Medicine, as well as clear up some misconceptions on a popular vitamin!

Functional Medicine focuses on more than just the symptoms you are experiencing when you suffer from a chronic health condition - It instead looks at the underlying root cause keeping you from becoming well again... Today's book talks about this healing process in more depth!

We all know vitamin D is crucial for our overall health & wellbeing, and you'll see many of your processed foods fortified with Vitamin D2, but is that really the best form for you to utilize and absorb? 

And lastly, I'm doing my final recap on the most popular alarm clock that actually simulates the sun rising to wake you up - no more air raid sirens startling you out of bed!

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 237 for all the details - enjoy the show!

Intermittent fasting can be one of the most powerful ways to heal your body and achieve your ideal body weight, but it must be done correctly...

And by that I mean that you should not fast longer than your body can tolerate. Just because a little is good, does not mean "more will be better..."

In today's #Cabral Concept 235 I explore how long you should be fasting for each day and when to fast longer, if at all. I also touch on whom intermittent fasting is NOT a good idea for... Enjoy the show!

Getting a good night's sleep is easily one of the most important things you can do to improve your wellness, body transformation goals, and longevity...

But often times due to stress, poor eating, alcohol, travel, kids, a racing mind, or other lifestyle interruptions, getting to be on time and staying asleep can be easier said than done...

The great news is that you can reset your sleep cycle and begin to enjoy more energy, a positive mood, less inflammation, and overall more vitality!

Listen in to today's #CabralConcept 234 for details on how to take back control of your sleep - enjoy the show!

Are unrealistic expectations holding you back from being happier & healthier?

I find too often many people believe that everyday they are supposed to feel jazzed with energy and smiling from ear to ear...

I'm here to tell you that life was never meant to be that way. Although you should not be suffering from any chronic bodily or mental health issues, minor things will pop up from day to day...

The great thing is that those days we don't feel our best help us to appreciate when we are enjoying optimal health & wellness...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 233 for more details on how to enjoy more happy & healthy days than not!

We're back with a brand new Cabral HouseCall answering your questions from the past week!

Check out today's question & answer below:

(Anonymous): 1. Does your body odor directly correlate with your diet? If I cheat, I find I have bad smelling armpits/breath is this related?

(Anonymous): 2. Do you recommend apple cider vinegar in your water daily? Bad for teeth?

(Anonymous): 3. What supplements can I take to help with my acne? 

Lisa: Hi, I start everyday listening to your daily podcasts. I've learned many valuable things so thank you! I am a few years into my autoimmune, adrenal fatigue, female hormone recovery and one thing I don't hear very often is what actual numbers should optimally be whether it be female hormones, thyroid, adrenal numbers. Sometimes I would like to order tests on my own but don't feel confident reading them on my own. I am 51 and still going through menopause.

Cristie: What is your take on steroids and the effects on the body?

I hope you enjoyed this week's HouseCalls and please feel free to leave your own question and I'd be happy to answer it on an upcoming show!

Too often we choose our workout based on what we see in magazine, whatever is most popular this month, or maybe at friend's suggestion...

The problem is that your workout can either do wonders to build up your health and transform your body, or it can slowly break you down and make you feel worse overtime...

What I'd like to do today is share with you how to find the best workout for you. This means you'll learn how your exercise routine should actually balance out your life and not push it in one direction or the other...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 229 to discover the right workout for you!

After hearing a story the other day about how a child at daycare was being given Skittles (candy) as a reward for good behavior, I knew I needed to share this with you...

When food is provided as a reward for doing "good work" or behaving in a certain way that the parent/teacher is looking for, it begins hardwire the brain in a way that looks at food now as something beyond just fuel for the body...

Food has now become linked with being "good," and "feeling good." This can set children (and adults) up with lifelong emotional and mental struggles with using food as a means to comfort themselves...

This reward system concept can actually be applied to anything and does not have to just consist of food as the reward...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 228 as I explain the research behind this psychology, which comes from an amazing book called "Punished by Rewards." I'll also show you how to break the cycle and live a healthier life, both physically and emotionally!

I know you've been told over and over that to lose weight, get well, end the joint pain, improve your mood, and sleep better that you must reduce inflammation...

I don't deny that decreasing inflammation will help every area of your body and health, but I do want to let you know reducing inflammation is not the answer in the long-run...

You see, inflammation is still just a symptom. That means it is being caused by something else. Which means, there is an underlying root cause to why that inflammation is present in your body...

Listen in on today's #CabralConcept 227 as I explain how to get at the underlying imbalances that are keeping you from achieving your body transformation and wellness goals!

Have you ever noticed that the people that do the most criticizing and judging are typically the unhappiest with there own life?

Over the years I've come to see that placing judgment on others actually hurts you more than it does the other person. The reason for this is that when you are always living in a world of judgment, you become a victim of it yourself in your own mind…

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 226 where I discuss why people can be so critical of others and how to escape this vicious cycle so that you can begin living a life of peace of mind and prosperity!

Chloe: What is your take on Atrantil for sibo? And other than using L-Glutamine how would you cure a leaky gut?

I'm back with another #FridayReview and excited to bring you these 4 items I use everyday in my #Boston practice to help people get well, lose weight, and feel great!

Today, I'll be reviewing a book that shows you color photos of common (and not so common) skin issues that you may be suffering from. It's a great book to have on hand if you have kids or suffer from skin issues...

Next, I'll be covering some research showing how anger and laughter actually change your immune response and are being used to help people recover from disease and cancer...

Plus, I'm going to share with you the popular anti-parasite herbal supplement we use to clean out your gut if you suspect you may have parasites, and I'll be giving you my pick for the easiest and healthiest solutions for natural deodorants (and I've tried them all!)

Many people don't know what a rebounder is until I mention it's other name that you're most likely more familiar with…

When most of us were kids we called it a trampoline and used to jump up-and-down on it and have some fun! Well did you know it's actually used today as a great way to get a workout in, and also improve your health and wellness?  

Believe it or not, it's one of the very best ways to move your lymphatic system, improve your cardiovascular health, and even lose weight!

Check out today's #CabralConcept where I explain all the details and outline 33 reasons you should be using a #rebounder at least once a week!

Getting rid of cellulite takes a multi-pronged approach. You must both address the elimination of excess body fat, and then the reshaping of the "septae" holding the fat cells in place...

This isn't as hard as it seems and it's something we help women with every week in our Boston practice. The first step is an elimination diet along with healthy detoxification protocols to begin eliminating excess toxic water weight and fat stores...

Next, we "unclog" the lymphatic system and begin to remove these built up toxins and oxidized fat. We also add in some dry brushing and rebounding for fun (and it works great!)

Tune in to today's #CabralConcept 221 for the complete protocol and details - Enjoy the show!

There's really no longer a question of do you need to detox, so today I want to teach you why it's so important and how to get the most out of it...

With close to 100,000 man-made, synthetic chemicals in the environment escaping toxins in 2016 is just out of the question. Therefore, it's imperative that we understand how our body detoxifies these chemicals and what it needs to support this process...

What would you regret not accomplishing in your life?

That's the first place I start when trying to help people assess what's most important to them and what they should set as goals...

Too much of the time we expend our time and energy trying to work on projects or accomplish things that we think we should do, or we feel should be important to us...

In the end this takes precious time away from accomplishing what we really do desire deep down inside...

Listen in to today's #CabralConcept 219 as I detail how to decide on what's most important to you and how to design a plan to accomplish those goals. Enjoy the show!

I believe you can still get great weight loss results without sacrificing your long-term metabolism or health...

The reason I say that is that I see too many people jumping from diet plan to diet plan without a clear vision in mind for how they're planning on keeping the weight off...

Any fad diet can get you results in the short-term, but how do you make it sustainable? What you need is a plan from the start of how you'll lose the weight healthily and then keep it off for life...

Check out today's #CabralConcept 214 for details on how we help clients everyday in our practice do exactly that. Enjoy the show!

Sep 6, 2016

One of the most overlooked causes of weight gain and wellness issues is toxic water weight...

Toxic water weight is what I refer to as the end product of what your body does to compensate for toxins in the blood that the liver can't keep up with detoxifying...

With over 77,000 man-made chemicals in the environment your body can get overwhelmed and as a result toxins are forced into your adipose tissue (fat cells) which cause those cells to swell...

Although this keeps your blood cleaner by pushing the toxins into your fat, it does cause a swelling of your cells, which makes you look and feel bloated, puffy, and swollen...

It's also why when I have people in my private practice go through my Dr. Cabral Detox system they say they feel like someone "deflated them..."

Remember, it's not always about eating less and exercising more. Your body is far more intricate than that and often times there's a few more layers of the onion to peel back before you find your answer...

But the good news is there is always an answer!
