Before my body got well I had to rewire my brain to allow that to happen...

This meant throwing out some pretty ingrained philosophies on life that I was carrying with me and were weighing me down...

Without releasing that baggage, the stress would never have allowed my body to heal...

Listen in on today's #CabralConcept 254 as I share some of my personal "rules for life" that I live by, and how you can begin to create your own. Enjoy the show!

I'm excited to be back with our 2nd Cabral House Call of the weekend!

Right now, we're going to answer 4 of your questions on:

Chad: Is it a good idea to empty out contents of vitamins/supplements that come in capsule form, into say a smoothie, rather than consume the vegetarian capsule itself? Thanks so much

Erika: Hi Mr. Cabral, My Dad just recently had a "growth" on his prostate which he had surgically removed. "it wasn't cancerous" so he thinks he now has nothing to worry about. I am sure a growth is a sign of an unhealthy body and more bad new to come? Is this true? He needs to know this was a sign to change his ways, and is very stubborn in changing his diet. He does eat red meat weekly and just recently stopped consuming cows milk. Please help is persuading him to realize this was a sign. And do you see it as a precursor to cancer from past experience? Is there anything else you recommend? Thank you for all that you do! Erika

Tara: Is there a certain amount of carbs women should be eating every day, even if they're trying to lose weight? I've heard that you should stick to under 50 grams of "healthy" carbs for weight loss and none of those from grains or beans, but then I've also heard that women in general don't do well eating under 100 g a day, because of cortisol and adrenal factors. What does your experience tell you? Is it fine long term to eat only non-starchy vegetables for carbs, with no grains/rice, beans or legumes? Thanks!

Chloe: So I started using pure magnesium oil spray and I got an itchy sunburn like feeling from a few sprays on both arms and legs. I couldn't wait to wash it off! Apparently this reaction could mean a magnesium deficiency, wondered what your take is on this and should I stop using it? Thanks Stephen!

I hope you enjoy the community Q&A and all the tips thrown in along the way!

Here are today's community questions:

Stephanie: Should someone take Charcoal capsules while on the detox?

Shawna: How do you get parasites and what foods should I stay away from?

Toni: Night Sweats: Are nightly night sweats our bodies way of trying to detoxify from a larger issue? My night sweats are so bad, I have stained my white sheets yellow and I am very worried. I eat healthy: vegetarian, don't really drink, definitely do not smoke (occasionally marijuana), and workout five days a week. Help!

Isaac: Hi Stephen, Thank you so much for all that you do. I just started listening to your podcasts a few weeks ago and I find my self looking forward to each and everyone. I was wondering if you could recommend any brand of an all in one multivitamin for Adults. Once again thank you

Some gurus preach skipping breakfast all together, while others recommend making breakfast the largest meal of the day...

Then there are those stating that lunch should be your biggest meal when digestion is strongest, but won't that leave you feeling tired?

And finally, some advocates (especially in weight loss) recommend making dinner your smallest meal, while others often times eat very little during the day and save one large meal for before bed...

Today, on #CabralConcept 249 we'll clear up all the confusion and help you understand why there is one clear cut winner for what really should your largest meal of the day - tune into to today's show for all the details!

When I first heard about and was diagnosed with "leaky gut," it wasn't given any real merit by conventional medicine. It was considered a made up, natural medicine myth or ailment... 

Now, 20 years later it's not only mainstream medicine, but they're actual giving people fecal transplants! It's funny how allopathic medicine always has to take it to that next level ; )

On a more serious note, leaky gut (intestinal permeability) is actually very important to understand and discuss. And it's so prevalent in today's world, that on today's #CabralConcept 248 I'm going to list the symptoms you may be suffering from that typically are caused by leaky gut root cause issues...

Don't miss today's informative show how what is leaky gut and why everyone is now talking about it - enjoy the show!

We've all been taught that it takes years or maybe even a lifetime to change the way we think or behave, but this simply isn't true...

The way you view life can change in an instant. It all depends on our life circumstances, events, what we're looking or, and what we've been exposed to...

Today on #CabralConcept 247 we explore how to rewire your brain for change, which is all summed up with just two little words...

After sifting through some amazing books I just read this week, as well as looking into "what's working now" in my Boston practice, I wanted to bring you our #FridayReview!

The book I found this most interesting this week is a short piece on how we can actually predict our behavior and our outcomes based on the habits we choose on a daily basis. It's a very interesting read on how by using certain questions & triggers we can begin to achieve things in our life we never thought possible...

Next up, I want share with you a fantastic nutritional supplement that calms anxiety and stress, while inducing deep relaxation. It's great for day-time stress reduction, or even taken before bed to get into a deep restorative sleep...

And last, but not least, I found a product that combines 7 kettlebells into 1 to save you money and space, while still being able to get in a great home workout!

Tune into #CabralConcept 244 for all the details and reviews - enjoy the show!

I know there's a lot of talk in the media and online about "Muscle Confusion" and how you should be changing up your workouts every time you exercise, but...

Check out today's #CabralConcept 243 to discover how often you should be switching up your workout program for maximum results!

I think too much of the time we believe we don't know how to achieve our goals and that we lack the proper plan or guidance to get us there...

However, I believe that if you look back on your life you will see times when you did achieve success...

It is at those moments of success that we must look for what caused that result? Success leaves clues and today on the #Cabral Concept 242 I will show you what to look for, so that you can ensure your success for the future!

If you're suffering from digestive issues, bloating, fatigue, skin, headache, or autoimmune issues there is one thing you must clean up before anything else...

That one thing is finding out what the offending foods are that are causing the systemic inflammatory immune reaction creating the outward symptoms you are now experiencing as your "dis-ease."

You can use elimination, rotation, exclusion & other diets to pinpoint those foods, or complete a simple at-home food sensitivity test...

For details on how to complete this and begin the healing process tune into today's #CabralConcept 241. Enjoy the show!

Some people seem to be born with strong willpower and a knack for easily sliding into healthy habits and sticking to them, while others trudge through day in and day out trying their hardest to stick with a plan...

The truth is though that everyone develops habits in the same way, it's just that not everyone is conscious of how they're doing it...

Today, on #CabralConcept 240 I'm going to break down the psychology and demystify how anyone can begin to develop a range of habits that will serve them and help them accomplish any goal they set for themselves!

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!

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!

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...

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!
