In my opinion the Rain Barrel Effect can and should used in every area of your life...

Whether it be mental or physical wellness, weight loss, or anti-aging issues it's important to be aware of what's building up and causing stress in your life...

In my opinion, we often give out far too much advice in our culture that revolves around what more we should be doing or adding to our life...

That's why in today's #CabralConcept 885 I want to share with you one technique to raise your energy and vibration levels by doing the opposite - Enjoy the show!

Jul 8, 2018

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!

Carla: I have PCOS, and possibly endometriosis & some type of thyroid dysfunction (these two haven't officially been diagnosed, but I have symptoms that have lead me to think I may have them). As I learn more about my condition and how to heal myself through lifestyle & supplements, I also try to get rid of toxins, do detoxes, eat well & exercise. However, I've worked with fire resistant garments for almost 15 years of my life and recently I learned that fire retardants are endocrine disruptors. I'm not able to immediately leave that field of work. Is there a way I can protect myself? I recently started wearing gloves (but they are plastic which is possibly not ideal either) and a cotton mask to keep from breathing in the fibers. What would you recommend? I'm not sure exactly HOW bad it is to continue working like this or if it's something I definitely need to get away from as soon as possible. Thank you for any guidance!

Kate: Hi Dr Cabral, I had my gallbladder removed 10 years ago but didn't drastically alter my diet until about 3 years. I eat a mainly paleo lifestyle (with occasional legumes), and I've discovered through recent bloodwork that I have deficiencies in a number of areas. Specifically with Vitamin D and also with my thyroid (I am well outside the "optimal" range but technically still "normal"). I take 3000 IU Vitamin D each day but after researching saw that having no gall bladder can lead to the inability to absorb fat-soluble vitamins as well as possibly affect thyroid and even cholesterol. Is there a way to overcome this? If I were to start taking your daily digestive enzymes, could that help my vitamin absorption? Thank you!

Julie: Dear Dr. Stephen Cabral, A friend of mine suggested your podcast last week and I have binged listened ever since. I have dealt with different issues such as Candida and fatigue. I overcame Candida with an elimination diet. Or maybe so I have thought… I have had my thyroid tested and it is normal. All my markers are normal except they found that I have Kidney disease. They were not able to find the root cause of it… My glomerular filtration rate is currently at 46 mL/min. The nephrologist stated that since I am an athletic build that is why. I am currently dealing with mood and fatigue. So if you can point me in the right direction of testing and why, that would be very helpful. Thank you! Julie Johnson 

Jill: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have a friend who has achalasia. She has had the balloon dilation procedure done 2-3 times. It often works for a time and then she has difficulty getting food down her esophagus. I'd love to hear your thoughts on diet info related to achalasia, the possibility of overcoming it, and any steps she could take to find health/healing. My understanding is that it's an autoimmune disease ... and can't be "cured" ... ? But I know you overcame Addison's. Any help/direction would be so amazing! Thank you so much for these house calls!!!

Claude: Hi! Don't know if you've already talked about this on your podcast: "Elderley's falls" (sarcopenia)?Is there anything i can do for my 93 years old dad?Thank you from Quebec.Canada

Elizabeth: Dear Dr. Cabral - I found your podcast about 6-8 months ago after you appeared on EOFire. My daughter was "cured" from her gut, thyroid, chronic EBV through holistic/funcational/naturopathy and it literally gave her a life again! (She lives in Florida and we live in the middle of the country. )So thankful! But today, I'm writing about my husband. Genetically he is challenged. By that I mean that everyone in his family is/was obese. His 2 brothers died in their 50's, (one from a PE and one from untreated diabetes) His two living sisters are in their late-50's and early 60's. One is riddled with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and both are overweight. His father died of Lymphoma at 72 and his mother from congestive heart failure at 82At 40 my husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer, but considered cured from that. At 46, he developed progressive hip pain and the joint was so eroded that he had to undergo a hp replacement at 47. All the nsaids and steroids that he took for that and for years prior to that for a football (knee) injury lead to acute renal failure before the replacement was done. His knee was replaced about a year ago. He has a stressful job and works about 7 days a week. He was also diagnosed with osteopenia at 46 and used Forteo for about 6 months, but I just wasn't comfortable with him continuing that. Since then he has been on Prolea. Uses supplements from the Shalkee Corporation. Daily vitamin, D3, Calcium, Iron and CoQ10. About 2-3 years ago he began gaining weight and becoming more and more fatigued. But our diet had not changed and in fact has gotten cleaner and healthier due to my desire to feel my family whole foods For 25 years he maintained a weight of 165 +/- 3 pounds. He's gained about 35 pounds; mostly around his umbilical area, but also in his groin area. He is tired ALL the time, cold, his eyes are puffy every morning, decreased libido, frequent nose bleeds, (but only after blowing his nose) decreased muscle mass and seems to catch every cold virus that comes around. He's always had periodic bouts of HSV II which seem to be worse with increased stress. He had extensive lab testing done last fall through Veridia Diagnostics. I would be happy to send these to you. Cardiac inflammation is a little high with hs-CRP 2.1 and Homocysteine (10). Food Allergies (IgE) were all negative, but IgA was not done. Lipid; Total Cholesterol 217 Triglycerides 100, HDL 70, LDL 141, Apo B 104. Fasting glucose 97, Insulin 7, A1C 5.3, Cortisol 11.2, Adiponectin 25.6, Leptin 13.9 Ferritin 156, Vitamin D 66, Magnesium 2.2, Creatine 1.3 Cystatin C 1.07 TSH 2.0, T4 5.3, Free T4 1.0, T3 1.23, Free T3 3.0, Thyrodglobuin antibody 10.6, Thyroid peroxidase antibody 12.93, Testosterone 640.6, FTI 31.7, SHBG 70.2, Estadiol 29.6 I think we have a thyroid problem, even though his labs are "normal". What should we do next? Sorry this got so long, but I really value your opinion. He would like to feel more like himself again and lose the weight. I would like to have a more energetic husband. Thank you in advance, Dr. Cabral!

Lizzie: Hello! My husband has had a persistent rash on his face that seemed to come out of no where. In January it started. It looks like small tiny pimples and red dots. Forhead, nose, cheeks. Subsides slightly and always comes back. His face is not itchy and it is most prominent when out of shower. Then in Feb his stomach started becoming itcy, more patches of dry skin, not rash-like on his face. He also has had toe-fungus for years, from sports in college. What could be causing this rash and how can he work to get rid of it? He eats very little protein, when he does, crappy chicken. Lots of veggies and he does have a massive sweet tooth. He is 37 yo. he is also going through a job transition. thank you!

Terri: I just purchased your digestive enzyme. Do I take this 15 min before each meal or only the first meal of the morning? It then works all day with just taking in the morning? Thank you 

Catherine: Hi Stephen, I regularly listen to your podcasts and would love it if you could help me out. Here’s a bit of information about myself, I’m 24, came off the pill just over 2 years ago and got quite bad acne all over my face (got worse and worse over time). Previous to coming off the pill, roughly about 1-2 years before, I became intolerant to dairy. In the past year I have been getting reoccurring yeast infections ("lady regions"). I have just completed a 3 month parasite cleanse, saw lots come out in my poop and I feel much better for doing it. However I am still getting yeast infections, I have figured out I have candida / gut issues. Would you recommend any other tests apart from the acids test? I’m not sure if my hormones could still be imbalanced? I have cut out a lot of foods that I used to eat such as bread, refined sugar etc but it’s not enough to kill whatever yeast/bacteria is inside me. Thank you

Annie:  Hello, I have been suffering with halitosis for around 15 years. I have been to every specialist that there is. I have even had my stomach biopsy and I have been to several dentist and gum specialist to rule out oral health care and everyone tells me I am fine and they cannot find anything wrong. My breath smells like feces and I didn't know what else to do? Please tell me where to start. Do you except health insurance?

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:

Ali: I’m applying for the private concierge membership because I want one-on-one consultation with Dr. Cabral for a complicated situation that I’m in... I noticed that Julia and Caitlin are almost half the cost of seeing Dr. Cabral… is that cost difference a reflection of their ability to diagnose as well as Dr. Cabral, or is it more so a reflection of popularity because he’s of course the man behind the magic of all of this? Thanks! Ali

 

Libby: I’ve been listening to your podcasts for a little while, I can’t find you addressing this question, and thought it would be beneficial for many people. My daughter is almost 13 and is struggling with acne and has had some learning disabilities. I was listening to you suggest that they both are gut related. She was on antibiotics a lot as a baby/toddler. She had reoccurring ear infections and strep. She then had tubes, adenoids out, and tonsils out. What would you suggest for an almost teenager in getting her gut healthy?

 

Annie: I'm dating someone who has prostatitis. He's 30 and has seen a couple of MD's who all tell him not to worry about it. He used to drink quite a bit and has recently stopped which his doctors said is a good thing. He has pain in his low back and fell on his coccyx when he was little. We are working to strengthen his feet and spine, but the pain wakes him up at night when he changes positions and when he lays on a flat surface. He saw an acupuncturist that said sex is good for him and there isn't pain with orgasm. Is there anything else that you can recommend that he do to help remedy this? Thank you for your insight and all you do.

 

Terry: Am I getting enough water when I only consume between 30 - 40 ounces of water per day? If I try to force myself to drink more water, it only feels like I have a fish bowl in my belly. I ONLY drink natural spring water or filtered zero water with concentrace mineral drops. No soda, no alcohol. I have organic green tea once or twice per week. I feel great and have zero dehydration symptoms I know of. I will drink more water if I go hiking, but, it's still not remotely close to 1oz per body weight. Once again, I feel great, but, if I try to drink more water, I don't feel as good. I've always been this way. Urine was clear until I started taking the active B complex vitamins, now it is Yellow due to the B vitamins. I am vata body type all the way. Male, 47, 6 ft tall, 125 and cannot gain weight regardless of how much I work out or eat. I recently saw a local naturopath doctor. No sibo, candida, nor parasites. Lots of food intolerance due to leaky gut, but already healing from that with help from her and from you. I am a huge fan of your show. Thank you for all you do!

 

Peg: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you so much for all of the incredible information you share on your podcasts each day; I’ve learned so much from you over the last year and still find episodes I haven’t heard yet. I’ve also recommended your podcast to countless friends for all types of advise. I’ve searched your archives to see if you’ve answered any questions about Bell’s Palsy and I haven’t been able to find anything on this topic. 3 Months ago after a long plane flight I woke up to 1/2 of my face totally paralyzed. I was in a foreign country and not near a hospital so I searched online for answers as to what may have happened and determined it was likely Bell’s palsy. I contacted my pcp who prescribed a course of antivirals plus prednisone. Even though I did not want to take either, I could not find any other suggestions online so I tried them both without improvement. Once I returned to the states I saw my doctor who confirmed I have Bell’s Palsy, but only based on a clinical diagnosis, no MRI. Can you please tell me what causes Bell’s and what I can do to help to improve the symptoms? I’ve regained partial function in areas of my face but I far from back to normal. My doctor said it can take up to 6 months to go away and has no suggestions for treatment in the meantime. I am anxious to do something to regain my normal face back! So far I’ve done a few things on my own: Acupunture. Oral B12. Alpha Lipoic Acid. Please let me know if you can help, or if you have treatment suggestions. Thank you so much, Peg

 

Lily: Hi! I am writing to you with a question regarding the blood panel test Dr. Cabral recommended on his podcast, Female Panel by Life Extension. I have been experiencing amenorrhea for about a year as well as persistent digestive issues (constipation, bloating), anxiety and now brain fog. My gynecologist sent me for some very basic bloodwork a few months back (FSH, LH, TSH, DHEA-S) but besides a DHEA-S level of 498 she said I seemed to be "in range". I have been recommended to take Spironolactone/birth control but I am focusing on addressing the underlying stressor/s that are contributing to these symptoms. In order to get the best results with the blood panel, Life Extension recommends pre-menopausal females to get blood drawn on day 21 of their cycle. Being that I have amenorrhea, do you have any further recommendations for when I get the bloodwork done? Thank you for any help you can provide, sorry this was so much at once! I really appreciate all you do. Sincerely, Lily

 

Tallulah: Hello! I love the information you provide and have been seeing some great benefits from your CBD Oil. I am basically a mess, physically, right now and my quality of life is definitely not great. After being healthy my entire life (aside from stomach issues), I have been diagnosed with the following: Bradycardia, Metabolic alkalosis, hypoglycemia, raynaud's disease, leukopenia, amenorrhea (haven't menstruated in 4 years). I spent time in a treatment center for an eating disorder but I was really just eliminating foods over time that were hurting my stomach (and I enjoy working out—wasn't trying to lose weight). I should mention that I haven't had any kind of illness such as a cold or flu for over 10 years so at least my immune system seems to be working! At this point, I can barely eat or drink anything without bloating and pain. I have eaten clean for many years—pescatarian—organic, lots of vegetables, pasteurized eggs and no dairy or gluten. I also grill or bake all of my vegetables to help with digestion—even lettuce—never raw. I make my own soups and meals so as to avoid added salt or hidden gluten. I also don't take any medications other than Vitamin D, Biotin, Iron, zinc and magnesium supplements (clean versions) and unfortunately, miralax because I don't seem to be able to have a bm without it, which makes everything worse. At this point, I don't know what to do but suspect your Candida & Bacterial Protocol could help. Does it require fasting in any way? I am concerned about eliminating even more foods and losing more weight and getting lightheaded. Also, I would desperately love to do all of your tests to finally get some answers but know that I can't afford them right now. Do you have any recommendations for my situation aside from the tests? Hopefully, someday I can take them. I am no longer going to traditional doctors as it has cost a lot of money, hasn't helped and goes against most of what I believe in for how to heal the body. I appreciate any advice you can provide. Thank you so much for all of the help you are providing people. You are literally, saving lives. Thank you!

Laura: Hi Stephen, I love your podcast and everything you're doing. I've had increasing lower abdominal pain over the last 12 months. It's becoming unbearable and really affecting my day to day life. I'm extremely healthy and lived a balanced lifestyle. I avoid dairy and gluten. 2 weeks ago I had the laparoscopy for the removal of endometriosis but None was found. I got my period this month for the first time in a year. I am not under weight or living I highly stressed life. A year ago I would have been very stressed though. My blood tests are great according to gymno and doctor and I monitor all the things that could potentially affect or cause these pains. There's no common foods that I am aware of. What questions me is the pain comes on around 5pm and stays for 3-4 hours. Generally I have lunch around 1 and don't snack at work or really eat until dinner. The pain seems to ease after I eat. The pain is shark, in the middle of my lower abdomen and causes severe bloating. Could I have a parasite or something causing this pain when my stomach is potentially empty? I'm exhausted and gutted that even after an operation I don't have any answers! If I was to take any of your tests what would you recommend? Any advice will help I don't even know where to begin now. Thank you so much

Welcome back to the #FridayReview and we’ve got a great one today!

First up I’ll be sharing with you another (even cleaner) vegan gelato to enjoy on those hot summer month flex meal days... 
 
Then, I go back and forth over some dubious medical research on eye heath that shows how poorly done many of these “scientific research” studies are... 
 
Lastly, I reveal this week’s super-nutrient that is referred to as the “Hormone & Adrenal Vitamin” because of its impact on energy and hormone production...
 
It’s been a fun week on the #CabralConcept podcast and I hope you enjoy today’s show!

A "cheat meal" or flex meal isn't supposed to be viewed as a bad thing or that you've done something wrong...

You haven't - But, that doesn't mean there aren't real repercussions to drinking alcohol or eating some of your favorite "unhealthy" processed foods...

So on today's #CabralConcept 881 I want to share with you how and when to exercise off the effects of a cheat meal - Enjoy the show!

In our culture we love to kinda-of, sorta-of, twist the truth to make certain beliefs fit into our dogma...

And this couldn't be more true than in the world of health & nutrition...

For example, I have no problem with making fun delicious recipes, but do you really think Paleolithic people were baking "Paleo" almond flour cupcakes?

All kidding aside, on today's #CabralConcept 880 I list the 10 unhealthy health foods (not paleo cupcakes ; ) that I won't eat or recommend because they're deceptively horrible for your health - Enjoy the show!

The 1st step in learning to eat better for your body is to discover the power of whole food (mainly plant-based) nutrition...

The 2nd step is to go deeper into the nutrients in whole food and how that can effect your overall wellness, weight loss, and aging... 

The 3rd step is to uncover your bio-individuality and finally realize how some foods (even "healthy foods") may react negatively in our body based on our current condition in life...

For some of those unique inflammatory health foods check out today's #CabralConcept 879 for what food group to eliminate to reduce allergies, brain fog, bloating, and burning - 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!

Alex: Hello Dr. Cabral, I’m a long time listener of your podcasts, have done DCD and sleep protocol. Thank you for educating the community, i’ve learned so much! I’m interested to find out when women should request a bone density test? Is it driven by the age (50s ?) or by having any specific symptoms? I’ve searched the podcasts but didn’t find any reference to this topic. Thank you!

Donna: When I do Russian Twists, I hear an echoey sound as I inhale/exhale when I twist from side to side. It's what I would imagine someone with asthma might sound like. I also have muffled hearing in both ears, mild stuffiness, and a little pressure in my forehead. I do not experience this with rowing, sprints, weight lifting, jump rope, or anything else. Could this be a symptom to a food sensitivity? I eat friends uit, vegetables, lean meat, salmon, seeds/nuts (NO Peanuts), No dairy except Kerry Gold Butter. I eat eggs from free range chickens. Any thoughts on this? (You are welcome to resend this pacific question if needed)

Nicole: Hi there! I'm not sure which test(s) I should be taking. I'm 32 year old woman, do resistance training 4-5x per week, am about 13% body fat and am considered healthy. I eat pretty high quality food 90% of the time but do have the occasional treat (gluten and sugar, some dairy). I suffer from chronic acne on my chin (prominent around my period but I typically have redness and inflammation all month long). I am SO over it. After listening to the podcast, I may have some form of hypothyroidism. I really want to optimize my health, continue to feel amazing as I age and get rid of this acne I've been battling for a few years (after I had my son 7 years ago). If you can suggest which test(s) I should consider, I'd appreciate it. Thank you!

Taylor: Hi Dr. Cabral, I recently did the Candida and Bacterial Overgrowth Protocol and I stuck to it very well the whole time. I was feeling amazing around the 60 day mark. Around day 80 I started getting really bad gas pains, burping a lot in between meals as well as right after, and it has been going on constantly for 3 month. My digestive issues were never this bad and I am feeling unsure about what to do next. I also took 2 rounds of the Healthy Belly and have been on the clean gut probiotic and that hasn’t seemed to change anything. I did some food sensitivity testing as well and nothing is seeming to show up. Do you have any recommendations on what I should do? I appreciate it!

Lindsay: Hello Dr. Cabral. Thanks for all you do to bring overall health and wellness to the masses! 5 years ago I was diagnosed with post-partum depression and put on Lexapro (antiidepressant). My symptoms continued, even after seeking therapy and being put on the highest dose of Lexapro and eventually adding Wellbutrin, at its highest dosage. I struggled with massive downs which left me unable to leave bed for days and frequent suicidal thoughts, terrible irritable and an inability to cope with anything, and extreme dependence on outside stimuli to find happiness. Eventually it led to a referral to a psychiatrist who diagnosed me as bi-polar. Since being put on valproic acid (depakote) my symptoms have been much more manageable. I have been able to lower my dosage of both of my anti depressants, yet I still do take them. My question is - where do you stand on the use of pharmaceuticals in mental health? Would one be able to alter their chemical makeup through diet, supplements, lifestyle? I feel so great now that I am more balanced, but would ultimately love to not rely on pharmaceuticals. I should add that I take Vitamin D, Bs, multi, Fish Oil, Calcium-Magnesium-Zinc. I recently purchased a light box to sit under in the mornings for about 30 minutes, even though I live in a decently sunny area.

Alisha: How does Lower back pain relate to low thyroid function?

Mason: Hello! I love your podcast and everything you talk about so much. My question for you is this. I college student, and I just turned 20. It's been just over a year now that I haven't gotten my period.Within this past year of losing my period, I went away to college which caused a lot of stress to me, and I started to develop more of a plant based diet. I am not fully plant based, as I do eat meat and eggs every once and a while but not very often. I have been to my primary doctor about this. He did some blood work, and all of my hormone levels are normal. I have a pelvic ultra sound scheduled in May. In the mean time what should I do? Do you recommend that I get any other tests done? Should I incorporate certain foods/supplements to try and get it back? I want to get it back as naturally as possible. Thank you so much!

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:

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!

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

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...

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!
