Sometimes the thought of running away from it all is very enticing...

Thank you for joining us for Day 2 of our weekend community Q&A!

We have 7 more excellent questions to answer and so let's get right into them!

Anon: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thanks so much for all the time you take to help educate all the listeners, you have made an amazing impact on my life. My questions are, I know I clearly have a fungal and possible candida overgrowth and have for several years but just was left with no answers as to why or how to fix them. I have had toe fungus for several years off and on and couldn't understand or get it to go away permenanty. I would on occasion get a good fresh nail to grow in on my big toe right foot and then a few months later find it sore and overcome again by fungus! Anyway, I know I need to do the Candida Protocol but I am currently nursing my 11 month old son. I would like to start this asap but I fear to do anything while I'm nursing, should I wait until I'm finished or would it be safe to start? My other question is, I do have saline breast implants and will be getting them out as soon as I can due to not liking the way they look the weight of them and also my overall health. I fear I will not like the way Iook after and am hesitant to get newer smaller ones placed back in. What is your take on these? And I know I will be placed on antibiotics after so where do i start with gut repair after the fact?

Anon: Hi Stephen First of all, thanks very much for all of your free podcasts. They are a wealth of information I don’t think is available anywhere else on the net and you are an inspiration to me and I’m sure many others. I am male, 44 years old, 12.10 stone (76.8kg) in weight and in reasonable health. Although I don’t get much exercise and work at a desk I’ve managed to drop a couple of stone over the last year by healthy eating. I have been suffering from male pattern baldness for about 16 years but the progression has been slow and I have been using Minoxidil for many years and Finasteride for the last 5 years. I have however, over the last year, had bouts of hair shedding that last for a month or two then it calms for a month or two before starting again. The shedding its self seems to be strongest around midday when I start to feel a tingling or itchiness on my scalp. It appears to only be on work days when I’m sitting at my desk, although it could be that I notice it more at this time. I do get regrowth between the shedding months but I’m keen to find out if this is just a natural progression of male pattern baldness or if there is anything I can do to slow or stop the cycle. Again, thanks very much for all your hard work.

Anon: Hi Dr. Cabral, What are your thoughts on botox injections? Are they dangerous? Are they worth it? What other natural things could you do instead of botox injections for wrinkles? Thanks for your help!

Jenett: Hi Dr Cabral I just recently started listening to your podcast about a month ago and love it! I get SO much information and you answer so many questions that I would ask myself, had I been in your office. I have been studying and researching all things Naturopathic for my family and myself. I have two questions and would so incredibly grateful for your advice. 1) I have battled estrogen dominance and adrenal fatigue for years which has caused weight gain, heart palpitations, fatigue and so many more symptoms. I was researching the blood type diet and pear shaped diet and a endomorph body type diet which all describe me to a T as far as telling me to avoid things like grains, which I have an intolerance to but Im still off. Is there a way for me to naturally balance my hormones without so many supplements? 2) My son is going to be 11 in July and he is at least a foot shorter then all his class mates and he only weighs 47lbs. Every time he has a new doctor see him, they want to run every blood test and stool sample but aside from a little low albumin, which they said nothing of concern about, they cant seem to figure out why he cant gain weight. He was 5Lb 13oz when he was born so he started out small but normal pregnancy and birth though they gave him a bottle in the hospital without asking me so he did have trouble with nursing and he cried all the time, which they told me was collic but in hindsight, leads me to believe he may have been hungry and malnourished. The thought devastates me as a mother that I neglected to see this. He is active, healthy, smart and an honor roll student so aside from his weight, there are no obvious issues but I am concerned about his weight. Do you have any insight as to what this might mean? Thank you so much for your time and whatever advice you can give. Love, love, love your show and will always be a fan!!

Chelsea: I'm interested in ordering your parasite protocol, but am wondering if it comes with additional instructions on how and when to take the supplements. Are there specific protocol directions that come with the order? Thank you!

Cindy: Hello Stephen Cabral, I love your podcast! Best ever and I have learned so much from you! Thanks a MILLION! I've been dealing with flu like symptoms and feeling super exhausted. Doctors can't seem to figure out what is wrong with me. So much blood work done and everything is "normal" Some say it's depression others have no clue?? What can I do to find answers. Plus I have 2 girls so I need my health back. Lol Any feed back would be much appreciated. God bless you for all you do for us! :) Thank you, Cindy L

Madison: What are the benefits vs. harmful effects of colloidal silver chelated using Fulvic Acid? I am using it primarily to treat chronic Epstein Barr Virus. I have read that it also reduces inflammation and heals leaky gut. As someone with chronic EBV and also interstitial cystitis, reducing chronic inflammation is a huge goal. However, I have been experiencing some major die-off symptoms (aches, muscle spasms and weakness, sleepiness, fatigue, nausea).

I hope you enjoyed this weekend's Q&A and all the tips added in along the way!

Welcome back to the Cabral HouseCall!

Today is day 1 of our community Q&A and I'm excited to be answering these specific questions:

Jen: Hi Dr. Cabral, Your weekend podcasts when you answer listener questions are quickly becoming some of my favorites. I'm learning answers to all sorts of questions I didn't even know I had! And I really like how you reference back to older podcasts for more information. Needless to say, I think your podcast is great! Do you have any suggestions for a natural way to cure razor burn/shave rash? I seem to perpetually get it around my bikini area and occasionally in two small spots in my armpits, same spot under each arm. I've tried using every type of shave lotion/gel I know to exist, from natural ones at my local health food stores, to the chemically ones found at the big box stores, without much luck. I read online that coconut oil can help (it's like a go-to cure-all for just about everything) but it didn't do anything for me other than make that area of my body greasy. Any ideas? Thanks! Jen

Jen & Salma: Varicose Veins & Hi Dr Cabral. Thank you for taking the time to read and help me with my question. I have a few dark veins, possible spider, slightly raised in my legs maybe a cm or 2 long. These have occurred following 2 pregnancies and I'd like to remove them - is lazer my only option?

Simone: Excluding HIV/AIDS, are there any natural cures for STIs and/or STDs? Specifically, chlamydia? Thanks for any insight with this!

Susanne: My husband has a CDL license and has to pass random drug tests. If he were to us the CDB oil would he pass the test?

Lisa: My question and concern is regarding the use of CBD oil for OCD in my 19 yr old son. He has had OCD for about 9 years and been on Prozac. With maturity he has gained more control with it and wants to get off of this prescription. He is not a marijuana user or illicit drug user of any kind and against it (at least for himself) as am I. I would hate for him to start using CBD oil to mask symptoms and slip into the belief that using a drug is okay which could lead to further usage. I would want him to learn how to manage his OCD and not cover up his symptoms. He had years of therapy but rejected it overall. My other question is other than CBD or in addition to, what types of treatment or testing would your practice do to help someone like him wean off of his medicine. My biggest regret as a mother is putting him on them in the first place. I wish I would have known about functional medicine 10 years ago. We did recently talk with his doctor about CBD and sent her your podcasts and information regarding it. She didn't agree or disagree but I hope she finds the info beneficial. Thank Dr, Cabral.

Nikki: Hi again :) I had written in a few months ago about an ear infection my daughter had. Four months later (she is 1 now) she has another one and are giving her the garlic drops as recommended and it seems to be working! However, today her fever came back. We've been giving her a few drops in each ear 3 times a day. I don't know what more we should do. I really want to avoid antibiotics and I fear she may be prone to ear infections. Her mood is fine, stool is normal, more sleepy, less hungry. A HUGE thanks for any insight on this and for all you do for this wellness community. Your knowledge is truly a gift to us.

Cassi: I'm currently doing the Candida protocol and just started phase 2. I have just recently noticed a slightly significant increase in my appetite and am wondering if you think this is related/unrelated/in my head...? Thank you!!

Thank you for tuning into today's Cabral HouseCall and be sure to come back tomorrow for Part 2 of our Q&A!

We've been told for decades that the way to become more flexible and prevent injuries is to stretch...

However, new data has repeatedly shown that stretching for the sake of stretching does not improve flexibility, nor does it prevent injuries...

It turns out, though, there is a specific way and time to stretch that does work and it can be done in as little as 30-90 seconds...

For details tune into #CabralConcept 482 for "The Best & Worst Times to Stretch" - Enjoy the show!
