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!   

Marie: Hi Doc, I posted the below in the support group, and was told to ideally ask you directly for the specifics. Thanks in advance!!"Is anyone able to solve this mystery for me? I am looking to start taking evening primrose oil for hormone balance and was unsure of when to take it. From what I’ve seen on here Dr Cabral suggests taking it in the luteal/second phase of your menstrual cycle, which I‘ve also seen recommended by Alissa Vitti and Jolene Brighten.  However there are also a ton of articles recommending that women who are trying to conceive should only take it during the follicular/first phase of the cycle, as there may otherwise be complications in early pregnancy.  While I am not trying to conceive currently, I am still a little confused due to the mixed messages.”Marie

Colin: hey doc, I just finished watching your review of the latest food guidelines on 1-12 and a great video as always. All the conversation of inflammation and alcohol etc has got me thinking. For those of us that are pursuing hypertrophy training or weight training in general, we are essentially pursuing a constant cycle of inflammation/recovery. While this can be argued as "good inflammation" to a degree, versus some of the other worse ways we can inflict inflammation on ourselves, what would some long term risks of a typical pursuit of physique/muscle growth be? Im speaking as someone who has weight trained and "eaten to grow" for 10+ years now, and Im in my 30s with a great BMI and body comp. I dont anticipate stopping any time soon. Outside of the novel risks of acute injury etc, what sort of long term risks do you think we bring about from pursuing a "muscle growth" oriented fitness style and almost perpetual inflammation in our muscles. As I have said in my comments to your youtube videos, I find you to be an excellent voice to bridge the gap between natural and conventional medicine. I wish more conventional medicine doctors were like you. Keep up the fantastic work.

Candace: Hi Dr. C! Question on Krill oil... I recently heard that taking krill oil during my cycle, on the days where I may be experiencing PMS, could help alleviate symptoms. What are your thoughts on this? And if recommended, can I combine this with the Omega 3 supp (from you) that I already take. Thanks! You’re amazing!

Yvonne: I heard a podcast in which you mentioned you use a PEMF mat. I also have a Swiss Bionics iMRS PEMF mat but think it caused my trigeminal neuralgia - is that possible? After about 2 weeks of using the mat I felt euphoric but shortly after that, that feeling stopped and then I had my first severe episode of trigeminal neuralgia. I stopped using the mat and have tried to use off and on but the neuralgia returns. I assume whatever the mat does is too much for my brain/nervous system - your thoughts?

Jen: Hi, Dr. Cabral! First of all, thank you. I know that your protocols and readily-available information has both improved my quality of life now and increased the longevity and quality of my future years. As I listed to Podcast 1803 and your recommendations for alcohol consumption & conversation around sugar, I have a question: What about all the wines being marketed as lower sugar, cleaner, etc.? There is FitWine and a few friends in the fitness industry haven gotten into that MLM Scout & Cellar wine. I'm not on board with either--would rather enjoy a really good glass of wine than a bottle of something claiming to be healthy--but I'd like to hear the science behind it and your opinion on "cleaner" wine. (Organic touch point would be awesome, too.) THANK YOU & SALUD!!

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: 

Anonymous: Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to answer our questions! It means so much to get answers to health questions from a trusted source. On occasion, I've noticed my stool is a light green color. When this happens, it typically lasts for a few days before returning to a more normal, darker color. I'm trying to trace the source to dietary reasons and not sure if increased fats and/or improperly digesting fats could be the cause. Please let me know what you think could be the potential causes for lighter colored stool and if you have any recommendations. Thank you, Dr. Cabral.

Valeria: Hi Dr. Cabral, my question is about covid-19 and the rising numbers/deaths here in the United States. I know there are a lot of factors that cause the wide spread of covid, but I want to know what you think is the REAL reason why there are so many deaths in the US compared to other countries. My grandfather has been in the hospital with covid and pneumonia for nearly a week now. Do you think covid deaths are a result of many people not wearing masks/not social distancing in public places, people's individual immune systems not being able to fight the virus, or is it the hospital conditions, such as low staffed and over packed hospitals, not enough supplies, lack of individual care and attention to detail to the individual's needs?  Just by hearing what my grandpa is going through at the hospital he's at, I think it is the latter. Both of my grandpa and grandma actually got covid, but my grandma recovered fine and didn't have extreme symptoms. They both followed the rules and wore their masks, but at their age (80s) maybe it was inevitable. Thank you for reading and thank you for all the work and research you're doing.

Kate: I try to eat intuitively, and only eat when truly hungry. I am a pitta body type (but with a very small frame) and once I learned to stop emotionally eating my weight just fell off and now I’m at the lowest end of a healthy weight for my height. My question for you is this: I’ve listened to all your podcasts about meal timing/IF and have tried to make changes but simply don’t get hungry early in the morning. I eat dinner at 5:00-5:30 pm, and don’t get hungry usually until around 11-12 am. I obviously don’t want to get too catabolic though, so is it ok to continue to just eat in the mornings when truly hungry or should I force myself to eat even when not?

Meghan: Hi Doctor Cabral, asking for a friend who Suffers from severe nasal polyps, he was told that he likely breathed in a spore through the environment that started it. He can no longer breathe at all through his nose, has lost his sense of taste and even had surgery which fixed the problem for 6 months and then they grew back. Could this be mould in his home? And do you believe he can fully heal from this? What would you recommend? His quality of life has really diminished and would love to help him find relief. Thanks so much for your ongoing commitment to this work it doesn’t go unnoticed.

Anonymous: Hey Dr C, I have been experiencing some white squiggly things in my urine. Not sure what to even look for when trying to look up previous podcasts. I had an OAT done and it showed high oxalates could this be related to that? Could it be a build up of what kidney stones are made from? What should I do? Interested to know what could be causing this too Many thanks

Heidi: Hi dr Cabral! I had covid about 9 weeks ago and still haven’t recovered my taste or smell. Do you have any recommendations for me? I’ve been taking all my b vitamins, zinc, vitamin c, vitamin d etc, but nothing has come back.

Thank you for tuning into today's Cabral HouseCall and be sure to check back tomorrow where we answer more of our community’s questions!

Did you know that having an inflamed gut can cause weight gain?
 
And did you know that gaining weight (body fat - adipose tissue) can cause inflammation and thus more weight gain?
 
And the cycle continues…
 
This is such an important topic to peel back to the root cause and that is why on today’s #CabralConcept 1846 we will be discussing the Gut-Adipose Inflammatory Axis connection - Enjoy the show and let me know if you have any questions!

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!   

Dustin: Is the daily probiotic support contraindicated for someone with a slight candida overgrowth? I just got my Big 5 labs and it showed a minor candida overgrowth. Part of my wellness plan is the Limited Yeast Protocol and it will be a few months before I begin that, therefore, I was curious if I need to discontinue my Daily Probiotic Support in the meantime since it will be a little while before I do the Limited Yeast Protocol. Thanks for all you do!

Becky: Hi Dr. Cabral I have a question. I contracted COVID-19 back in July 2020. I wasn’t very sick just achy and had flu like symptoms but my smell and taste disappeared. I thought I was starting to get it back when all of a sudden I started smelling and tasting horrible things. Everything started to smell like rancid Thai food and now as it is January 2nd it’s not any better. Only sweet things taste like anything and everything smells awful. Do you have any suggestions on how to get my olfactory nerves to rebuild faster? Thank you!!

Angela: Dr. CabralLove your show and the work you do to help the community! I’m generally a listener curious in all the different medical dilemmas you discuss on your show, however I now find myself in search of answers. I recently had a dental implant and the following day from the surgery I woke up with the feeling of a lump in my throat that has persisted for over two months now. The only time I don’t fee the lump sensation is when I’m eating and drinking and when I’m asleep. I saw an ENT who diagnosed me with Globus sensation in which we are trying to rule out silent acid reflux first and then moving on to other possibilities of what may be causing this. In the mean time I’m looking for solutions to help minimize the feeling of the lump. There is no pain and does not present any issues when eating and drinking but it is so annoying. Any ideas of some non toxic remedies? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!Angela

Ashley: I want to thank you for all your research you do to help everyone you can going through dis-ease in their body. I suffer with pain and pressure in my stomach. Recently I had a barium swallow done to make sure that my surgery from 2007 to repair a hiatal hernia done was still holding up. They noticed that I have a lot of air trapped in my upper left colon. I have completed the food sensitivity test and cut out the foods I was sensitive to. I have Celiac, acid reflux, dairy free, no eggs, no vanilla, or pineapple. I was wondering what your recommendation would be to help with this. I have listen to your podcast on the different test to take and wanted to know which test to start with. Looking forward to working with you and healing my dis-ease.

Dustin: Hi Dr. Cabral! I am a long time listener and wanted to ask about a hint you gave back in 2019 where you eluded to an anti-aging supplement formula you were working on and you stated it would be coming out around February the following year (2020). You were very excited about it and eluded to some of the ingredients, which I was excited about. I waited all year with peak anticipation :) and nothing came. Is this still in the works?

Justin: I was wanting information specifically on pulsatile tinnitus, and if regular tinnitus frequently accompanies that or not. I do have both and I’m not sure if they’re the major culprits to my insomnia or theirs other underlying issues. I understand that pulsatile tinnitus could be a symptom of cardiovascular issues. I do have a heart murmur, does that coincide with pulsatile tinnitus some how?

Hannah: Greetings Dr. Cabral! My dad is 62 years old, has been battling Congestive Heart Failure, and is sadly pumped full of pharmaceuticals to deal with everything. He had 2 mitral clips inserted this past October, and is now being evaluated to hopefully be put on the list for a total heart transplant. It's so tough and sad to watch him go through this, and I wish he didn't have to struggle so much. Would working with a skilled Naturopathic Doctor be possible, even with his condition and dozens of medications? What would you do in this situation? Thank you so much for shining your light!!

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: 

Ashley: Hi Dr. Cabral! I'm writing on behalf of my sister in law. During almost the entire duration of her pregnancy with my nephew she experienced extreme hyperemesis gravidarum. It was so severe that she had a mid-line IV of metoclopramide for a month because she couldn't even keep water down. Vitamin B6 was eventually suggested to her and that helped more than anything else. She wants another child but her experience with that pregnancy was so terrible that she, understandably, does not want to risk going through it again. The question is, what might the underlying causes be and, if dealt with, can she have confidence that she wouldn't have the same issue again? Her doctor told her that she's basically allergic to pregnancy hormones but our hope is you might have some better insight for us. Thank you so much in advance. I wrote into you 2 years ago about my fibroadenomas and shortly thereafter I ran the big 5 labs. My mind was blown by how your answer to my question on the Cabral House Calls lined up completely with my lab results! It's clear that you have invaluable knowledge and I can't express how grateful I am to you for sharing that with me and so many others. My whole family has decided to run the big 5 labs and I can hardly wait to see the healing that it brings! Thank you!

Raquel: Hi Dr Cabral, I had my thyroid levels tested and it showed that it's underactive. After supplementing naturally (no synthetic hormone) for over 9 months, many of my symptoms improved except this intense muscle weakness. For instance, although i exercise often, when I do long-holds during yoga my legs shake so much that I can no longer breath properly unless I stop. What could help with this? I also feel it when I stretch after a run or during body-weight exercises. Thank you.

Cory: I am currently seeing a functional medicine doctor for candida, and leaky gut. She wants me to stay away from all gluten right now. I have been staying away from gluten for 6+ months now with the occasional cheat. What are your thoughts on this? I’ve heard if you take something out of your diet your body is more sensitive to it when you add it back in.

Darrel: Good day Dr. Cabral. You regularly recommend 7-9 servings of fruit on your show, I was wondering if fruits that aren't native or relatively known in North America are included in this. In the Caribbean, we've things like Pommecytheres (June plums), Pomerac (malay apples), padoo, cashews, custard apples, cashews, balata, chennete etc. Would they also have similar nutritional profile and antioxidant qualities or should we too seek out importing blueberries and other fruit that aren't necessarily native to us? Keep up the great work.

Kate: Hey Dr. Cabral! Hoping you can help me out. I’ve been WFPB for the last 9 months. I have lost over 50 lbs, and am now in my healthy weight range. I eat to full satiety, but still am 25% body fat and would like to decrease that percentage a few points. I have felt extremely well until very recently. I have lost my period and believe I’m suffering from other symptoms of hypothalamic amenorrhea such as feeling cold, fatigued, sleep disturbances, frequent urination etc. I am confused on how this can be happening when I am eating 2500+ calories every day, only working out lightly 2-3 times a week and still am a “higher” body fat than traditional HA sufferers. Please help me know what to do next, I am stumped.

Thank you for tuning into today's Cabral HouseCall and be sure to check back tomorrow where we answer more of our community’s questions!

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!   

Lauren: Hi Dr. Cabral,I’ve been following a plant based pescatarian diet. I also love eating vegan meals of non gmo/organic tofu and legumes. I recently did your Big 5 tests and my food sensitivities came back that I’m sensitive to soy and many beans. I’m basically left with black beans and pinto beans. I’m currently following the CBO protocol (1 month in) and feeling great! I will try re-introducing those foods in the coming weeks. I’ve been eating WAY more fish now. My question is...is it safe to eat fish everyday for lunch & dinner? I eat only wild caught and low mercury fish. sockeye salmon, cod, haddock, shrimp, mussels, mackerel. I know fish has many health benefits plus it’s delicious. I also feel my best following a plant based pescatarian diet. But our oceans are still very polluted so I wonder if it’s possible to eat TOO much fish in a week. I would love your thoughts.Thank you!

Mike: Hi Dr Cabral is it possible to have high levels of mold toxicity for 3 years and just now have symptoms? It’s been 3 years since I left the moldy house. I took the mycotoxin test from Great Plains and Chaetoglobosin A was at 107 when it should be under 10. I started developing symptoms on September 18 and have been getting worse.

Karen: Hello Doctor Cabral and thank you for being a most-trusted and consistent resource in a time when fads and contradiction are so prevalent and so hard to decipher.My question is related to combining whey protein powder with collagen powder. I recently heard a popular health podcaster say that these two proteins should not be combined, but he didn't take time to explain his viewpoint.After a hard workout I like to combine these two protein sources.Is there some sort of problem with the uptake of amino acids when these two protein sources are combined or is there something else I am misunderstanding?Thanks SO very much!

Heather: Dear Dr. Cabral,I am new to your program and functional medicine and I have embraced it whole heartedly. I am a 44 year old who will be having a double hip replacement. I have changed my diet and detoxed, used acupuncture, chiropractic care, physical therapy and medication. However, none of these have helped and I am barely able to walk and need the surgery to function.My question is: what are the possible causes for needing this surgery so young and is there a likelihood that I would need replacement surgery for other areas ; like my knees?

Anonymous: Let me start off with a big thanks to you Dr. Cabral and everyone working with you. What you all have created is such a gift to anyone and everyone who is interested in taking charge of their health.I am a 48 year old woman who exercises regularly, eats healthfully, and works hard to manage my health. I do not have any medical problems but nearly every evening I suffer for several hours with excessive gas.I recently developed what I believe is lactose-intolerance and though the gas has decreased since giving up dairy, it is still a nightly problem. Ironically, the rare evenings when I don't experience this problem are days when I have NOT eaten particularly healthy.The only thing I can equate this to is fiber intake. Most days I consume quite a bit of fiber as part of a healthy eating plan. When I do not eat healthfully, I consume very little fiber and this seems to result in less gas.I don't really want to decrease my fiber consumption as I feel like it is a beneficial prebiotic for healthy bacteria. Am I mistaken?And, what can I do to decrease the gas?Thank you SO much for helping me with what feels like a very embarrassing problem.

Stacey: What are your thoughts on the Covid19 vaccine? I am a healthcare worker and am apprehensive to get the vaccine. My main concern is about the mRNA attaching to or replicating any cancer cells that could be in the body. Could mRNA cause abnormal cells to reproduce, or could this technology actually help in our fight against cancer?

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: 

Mike: Hi, Dr Cabral can mold toxicity cause Pre-diabetes or type two diabetes?

Lorena: Is it true that salt increases cellulite due to water retention? I’m referring to good quality salt such as himalayan and Celtic salt but people tend to say that I go a little overboard with it in my meals haha! I’ve been noticing some cellulite indeed and I eat very clean mostly plant-based foods and exercise daily. I also do daily Ayurvedic self massages and have done a few of your functional medicine detoxes. Any advice?

Maria: Hello! Hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas and new year :)I would like to ask for your opinion on ‘Getiana Lutea root’ and ‘Zingiber Officinale root’ as a digestive support supplement. This was recommended by my naturopath but have never heard you speak of these before. I was told one must be careful with taking digestive enzymes with Sibo and that these would be safe to use. Thank you so very much. Maria

Maria: Hi again, I also have a one other questions. I purchased an organic toothpaste and realised it contains ‘organic ethanol’. Would this be okay in toothpaste? It is the second ingredient after Aloe Vera so I am assuming there is a decent quantity of it inside. Appreciate your help!!

Adonis: Hi Dr. Cabral, what binders can someone take for Chaetomium? It was really high on my Mycotox test. It was 108 when it should be less then 10. I really can’t find information on this type of mold and how to get it out of my system.

Dan: Dear Dr Cabral, long term listener and big fan reporting in. My girlfriend is having issues losing weight. She was diagnosed with PCOS and insulin resistance and has recently been having panic attacks and depression. She also has persistently high CRP, around 10. She turned pescatarian a few years back and has started to exercise more but she is still finding it difficult to lose weight. I suspect she has raised cortisol levels and a hormonal imbalance which are likely contributing to her inflammation and poor metabolism. Her thyroid levels were normal, around 1.5 TSH. Have you any advice where to start, do you think your fatlossity plan will work with these root conditions or do you think there needs to be some preparatory work to see the maximum results? From your number 1 fan Dan.

Lauren: Can you do a review on Baruka nuts? I’m also interested in your thoughts on their trail mix which has a mix of the fruit and nuts.

Thank you for tuning into today's Cabral HouseCall and be sure to check back tomorrow where we answer more of our community’s questions!

There's an old tired cliche that goes like this, "The only way you can fail, is if you give up..."

Although, I'm not a big fan of cliches there is a certain truth to this saying. However, the truth lies more in the fact that there are only so many variables and possibilities you can try before becoming successful and reaching your goal.

The issue is that most people go about trying to achieve their goals and dreams all wrong... In today's Cabral Concept podcast I explain what the right ways are to make success inevitable and finally come out on top!

Don't miss today's show on why you will be successful!

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!   

Cindy: I am recovering from covid . It’s been about 6 wks. I am have lingering respiratory issues. Trouble getting my energy back. Would you have any suggestions . I take vit D zincImmune boosters. Protein shakes. I’ve read that Covid can leave information in the body what’s your thoughts?

Christine: Hi Dr. Cabral. For the past month or two, I have been occasionally tasting a strange taste in my mouth. The best way I can describe it is almost like baking soda. It’s not overwhelming and it comes and goes. Water could taste strange but everything else tastes normal. I take some daily supplements (magnesium glycinate, mega food blood builder, evening primrose, vitamin d, and a vegan omega 3). I am a 38 yo plant based vegan who works out 4 days a week. I haven’t had Bloodwork done in over a year but last work up showed low iron and d. I do suffer from health anxiety so something like this could cause me into a spiral of self diagnosis. Any insight would be so appreciated!

Jenna: I have had a swollen or shotty lymph node on the side of my neck since I was a child (so about the last 20 years). I developed another one on my neck about 4 years ago that also hasn't gone back to its normal size. I can feel them under my finger and they move around if I push on them. My PCP says this is completely normal & nothing to worry about. Can you tell me why a lymph node would stay enlarged like this for 20 years? Is there anything specific I should be doing to get this to go away or do you think it's permanent?

Meghan: Hi Dr Cabral, I have tried searching but couldn't find any shows previously on this topic, I have a friend who when he drinks too much he gets a severe skin rash on his face, throat and then body and becomes quite unwell. It seems to be exasperated with wines/champagne. Do you think it is likely that it is a preservative in alcohol that causes this and is it an indication of something else going on in the body or just an allergic reaction to this preservative? Is there anything he can do to minimize the reaction if he does want to drink at social events? Many thanks

Megan: Hi Dr Cabral, My 14 month old (who is here today thanks to your protocols!!) is having a hard time since starting day care. He is suffering with respiratory issues including multiple bouts of tonsillitis which were really severe we (much to my heartache) had to put him on antibiotics twice to get him better but obviously you know first hand the impacts of antibiotics in the longer term and on gut health. I currently have him on your children's immune protocol at a reduced dosage as per his body weight (20 pounds), investigating mould in our house, removed gluten & dairy, have him on a probiotic and omega 3, I had tried to book in to see one of your health coaches for an immunity call but they said they weren't able to assist because of his age. I understand and respect you cannot give recommendations specifically over a podcast but I don't want to just wait until next time and face antibiotics again so my question is if this was one of your girls what would you do to support them to get to the root of why its happening while he is so little and in the mean time treat it naturally if it reappears? Is there a throat spray/protocol for a child this young? I would really love some support and don't know where to turn. Thank you so much in advance would love to hear your thoughts.

Megan: Hi Dr Cabral, I know you have done a tongue analysis episode but It wasn't quite enough information for what I was looking for. I have scalloping of the tongue and little blister like bubbles at the back of my tongue. From what I can understand the scalloping represents malabsorption, I am currently taking a digestive enzyme with my meals and taking a Healthy Gut Support substitute and probiotic. What else can I do to help support my body? In regards to the little blisters i think that represents the intestines, I did do the intestinal cleanse protocol which well and truly cleaned me out but the bumps are still there and wondering what else I can do because my body is obviously inflamed and showing this through my tongue. Thanks so much

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: 

Shelly: Hello, Dr. Cabral Thank you for all you are doing In your journey of health and wellness. I have a long history of asthma and allergies as child, fibromyalgia and central sensitization as adult. This past year Having food reactions that cause tingling in arms, legs, metallic taste in mouth, Ibs, stomach pain, brain fog and fatigue. It’s been long road but long story short In My labs show glutathione is low and Oxalate is high. I’m not sure if low glutathione is because of Oxalate toxicity and I’m having crazy food And environmental reactions because glutathione is low and I can’t get rid of toxins from food? Is the gut primary problem? Difficult to figure out root cause.

Trina: Hi Dr. Cabral, First, I just wanted to say thank you for going above and beyond with your team to help our community, it is very much appreciated! My question is about cultivated food, mainly meat from the stem cells of animals. I was wondering what you thought about it's potential safety, health benefits, and whether you agree with those in the industry that it could be a way of providing sustainable food as well as helping the environment.ThanksTrina

Cody: Hi Dr. Cabral - thank you so much for all that you do for all of us. I look forward to listening to your podcast every day.  It is my understanding that you can only absorb 3 supplements at one time. I like to take my supplements with breakfast. I often add in powdered forms of collagen, mushrooms, barley grass, acerola, etc. My question is are the powders considered food or supplements. I'm not sure if I'm overwhelming my system if I take a couple powders with 3 supplements (pills).  My second question is - do you have any experience with Asea and Renu28? The people that sell it claim it "cures" just about everything from seizures to blindness, but it all just sounds too good to be true. Thank you again!

Nicole: Hi Dr. Cabral!!  In the future, I may be mandated to take the new vaccine at my work. What can I do before and after to keep me safe!!!! Love all you do!!!!

Sarah: Hi Dr Cabral! I’m a big fan and can’t stop recommending your podcast to EVERYONE.  My friend is really suffering with eye inflammation and is currently on a 6 week course of steroid type eye drops. Are there any natural remedies that could help to reduce the eye inflammation? She is very worried and feels vulnerable when she has issues with her sight which seems to be quite often.  Thank you so much and Happy new year!

Joe: Hello Dr. Cabral, I've been a huge fan of you since finding your podcast a year ago. You've been a lifesaver in my household. I was curious if you've read the recent studies showing that LED lighting damages the retina. I know that past studies showed that LED light disrupts sleep and the circadian rhythm, but my wife has macular degeneration and we are extra worried with these new findings because we live in California, and our state has forced out incandescent bulbs completely. Companies out of state are also not allowed to ship these bulbs to California anymore. I'm sure I can find a way to get bulbs if I visit another state, but I'd love to hear your thoughts on this new research if perhaps you decide to review it on one of your Friday episodes. Thank you for everything you do - we are so grateful for you! -Joe

Mo: Hi Dr Cabral, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year (assuming you get this in January). I was wondering if you had heard of the Niacin Flush Sauna Protocol? I found some research on it where it was a 30 day sauna protocol with Niacin and the dosage would increase from 500mg to 5000mg by the 30th day. I started it a few days ago and literally after the first session I noticed a red bump on my arm popped out and I think its just the toxins being pushed out. Another thing I wanted to see if you had any insight on would be dandruff from this protocol. I noticed the day after my scalp got really itchy and dry and its getting worse and worse. I put sesame seed oil for now but I wanted to see if these were related. Looking forward to your insight.Thanks again as always, wishing you and your family the happiest healthiest safest holiday season and new year to come. 2020 has been an amazing year and you were a big part of it for me and my family! Regards, Mo
