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?!

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!

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!

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!

Although there doesn't seem to be a full antidote for the complete absence of suffering in life, there are ways to mitigate it... 

For example, you will not be able to avoid the loss of family and friends in life, since that is part of the natural life cycle, but you can control how you live you life...

By taking control of certain aspects of your life you will be able to see how you can steer yourself away from decades of pain and regret...

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!

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

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...

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...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 865 to discover the 4 ways to fix your sleep cycle by healing those imbalances - Enjoy the show!

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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...

That's why on today's #CabralConcept 852 I want to share with you "The 10 Most Common Food Misconceptions" and what to watch out for - Enjoy the show!
