But, to ascend to that next level in life there will need to be change-
 
That’s why on today’s #CabralConcept 1942 I’d like to share with you why you must do the thing you fear to get the results you’re looking for - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

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!   

Kimberly: Hi Dr Cabral. I am a devoted listener and your protocols and FM detoxes have improved my quality of life so much. My question is, I took the J & J vaccine. My reactions were normal ( fever, chills, nausea, headache,etc). I did experience severe headaches a few weeks after receiving the jab, so my PCP referred me to ER to get CT, contrast MRI to rule out blood clots. I was fortunate not have the rare blood clot, but the MRI showed that I have an Olfactory Groove Meningioma. I never had headaches before, and I had an MRI a few years earlier to rule out pituitary tumor as a cause of my low thyroid. I have 2 questions: 1. Is it possible my immune response to the vaccine triggered the tumor to push against my nerves causing these severe headaches? 2. Would something like florafilm help keep this tumor from growing. I know I have to defer to my neurologist and her team but curious of any natural treatments for this type of brain tumor.

Carmen: Hello Dr.Cabral, After a visit to the ER due to severe dehydration from a stomach flu, I was sent home with the CT results of my pancreas classified as normal. After getting home and reading the findings of the CT, the statement "extensive fatty replacement of the pancreatic parenchyma", left me a little worried. It does not sound " normal". I am 42 years old, 5'6, 130 lb, I eat fairly healthy, don't smoke or drink, but do have high cholesterol (350 total). Any thoughts? Thank you for all you do, it truly makes a difference in my everyday life

Joy: Hello Dr Cabral, my question is related to the heavy metal detox supplements. It was recommended by my HC that I do the heavy metal detox based on results of the minerals and metals test. I noticed the Florafilm (in the protocol) has an ingredient from egg whites (lysozyme). When I did your food sensitivity test it showed a sensitivity to eggs. Should I avoid the Florafilm supplement because of my egg sensitivity? On a side note, if I click on just the Florafilm supplement in equi.life, that’s not included with the protocol, it lists different ingredients including no lysozyme. That confused me. Are there 2 Florafilm supplements? Thank you!

Maria: Thank you for your time! My question is, i have eliminated eggs for over 6 months due to having a severe iGg reaction on my food sensitivity test. However, I had not continued with the CBO protocol due to being underweight and my health coach believed it is more important to get my body to a healthy stage as long as my digestion is okay. As I had not done the CBO protocol, I was wondering if I am able to introduce eggs to my diet as my immune system has had a long time without being exposed to the egg protein, or would it still be best to avoid eggs? This also includes a few other foods like chia seeds and cows dairy.

Nicolette: Hi Dr. Stephen, first off, THANK YOU. I have gone through all your Thyroid podcasts, and feel I have a pretty strong understanding on how to heal my Hashimotos. I still work with an endocrinologist as I have been on Synthroid for 15 years. (I am 27). I started on it at a very young age. I am on an extremely high dose and have been really working to heal myself with multiple of your test, and protocols (metals and CBO). I stick to a very clean diet, workout regularly, and have really reduced my stress levels. I told my endocrinologist that since my numbers (T4, T3, TPO, reverse t3) are looking good, I would really like to start to decrease my dosage of synthroid to begin to get off of it. He said since I am still not feeling me best (weight gain, alway puffy, wake up groggy, cold hands/feet) that my body needed a change so he lowered my synthroid, but added Liothyronine. He said if I do well on this and continue to, we can work to move off them? 2 questions, being on these two medication I’m not suppose to have calcium and iron until 4 hours after. That really effects my morning smoothie with your supplements since some of them contain those. What are your thoughts on those two medications being used together and when should I consume my morning smoothie? THANK YOU!

Maria: Hi Dr Cabral, forever appreciative for your knowledge! I have a quick question, I understand that heating oils is not a good idea due to oxidation, however I just read in the book I’m currently reading, that each time an oil is reheated, it breaks down and it’s chemical structure becomes more destabilised. I am unsure if that just includes oils used for deep frying, or also oils such as avocado oil when reheating leftovers? Thank you!

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: 

Jamie: First and foremost, a thousand thank yous and it still wouldn't be enough for you and of course your team. After having COVID quite mildly it does seem that i have some symptoms that are taking a bit longer to get over and i would love to understand what is going on a little better if possible. So it is to do with energy levels. I would jump on the peloton beforehand and then walk to work feeling energised. Nowadays if i do that i will feel tired by 2pm and when i use a lot of energy i will get a small fuzziness in my head and light burning in my nose. What is causing this and what might one do through functional medicine, supplements diet etc... to help maybe address this and restore the energy levels to the previous position? Thank you again as i couldn't see a specific answer in your podcasts addressing this and i followed your immunity protocol as soon as i tested positive and for a while afters (even had a call with Julia but was too early to ask her the above!). Again i cannot express how grateful i am for all you have studied and all you have done to make functional medicine mainstream again and accessible to all. It has changed my life for sure and i really enjoy being able to pay little bits forward whenever i can. Keep well.

Isabelle: Hello doctor Cabral, I love your podcast, especially the weekend edition! I was wondering if you could maybe help me out with the following: I do 16:8 IF every day. My last meal is around 4 or 5pm and during my fasting window I only drink water. My sleep has not been great, therefore I want to start using magnesium and other supplements before bed. However, the purpose of my fast is to get as much authopaghy as possible, so I don't want to get too many calories in or increase my blood glucose or any other hormones. Do you think that magnesium would interfere with my fast? And what other supplements do not affect the clean, water fast? Thank you for answering our questions, you ar amazing! Isabelle

Denise: Hi dr Cabral, I hope you are well and healthy! I think you're probably the only person that could clear this up for me, so here's my issue: they say that prolonged fasting stresses out the body and can lead to hormone imbalance - especially when it comes to women. I'm a 43 year old woman and I love fasting. When I do a long, 24-hour fast my HRV goes up, deep sleep doubles, hart rate and tepmerature goes down and I reach the best recovery score on my Oura ring - much better than when I eat regularly. But I am afraid that it will mess up my hormones. So can I trust that if my recovery index is okay, my hormones will be okay too and not go haywire? Or are these totally different systems that don't influence eachother? I can't wait to hear what your thoughts are on this. Thanks a million for this, and everything else you've done for our community! You're THE BEST! Denise

Eliana: I am 24 years old and very healthy, eating a diet of whole foods and exercising often. I frequently have achey, sometimes sharp, muscular pain in my upper back and neck. It’s definitely worse with stress and I have wondered if it’s worse on the days I drink coffee. My chiropractor said exercise (I strength train a lot) and caffeine both make the body more acidic which could lead to this pain. Could you shed some light on this and how to lessen the pain? I do drink less caffeine now and many days I have chai instead of coffee... however, I still experience the pain most days.

Janice: Hi Stephen, I have listened to your podcasts for quite a while now, thank you for what you do. My question is, if my employer makes covid vaccines mandatory, would I be able to get a note from your office excusing me from the vaccine? I am 62, in good health, love my job and I don't want to lose it, but I will not get the vaccine. I have been working from home since March 2020, I do not come in physical contact with others. Things could change and they could order us back into the office, and that is my concern. Thank you for your time.

Rebecca: Hi Dr Cabral, I’m 11 months post partum and my hair is starting to get very, very dry to the point it’s snapping off all around the front and is constantly frizzy and matted, I’ve never seen it like this before. I’m still breastfeeding, so I know I can’t do many protocols in terms of detox but just wondering what you would recommend to help with this in the mean time? Also noticed my babies hair is doing the same thing? I’m guessing it’s some form of malabsorption of proper nutrients/vitamins etc thyroid or stress? Also just for a bit of background I did an OAT 2 weeks before I found out I was pregnant and it came back with high clostridia (not diff), two mold markers, quino acid high and lactic acid etc just to give you a rough idea of the pattern. Tanks for your time, Bec :)

Mold is finally becoming known as one of the preeminent bio toxins in our environment… And one of the reasons why it is so pervasive and goes undiagnosed for so long is because it is invisible in most cases to the human eye…
 
Although it is easy to test for and the symptoms can be clearly defined most of the time the damage from the mold mycotoxins has already set in...
 
This is why understanding what environmental factors in which foods are highest in mold is your best bet...
 
Tune in to today’s Cabral Concept podcast 1937 to discover What Foods Are High In Mold & MycoToxins - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

It’s been documented that by the year 2030 1 in 2 people may get cancer within their lifetime…
 
That’s an insane statistic and one that we need to be diligent about right now…
 
And that’s because large-scale diagnosable cancer does not infect the body overnight and much of it has to do with our lifestyle and especially nutrition…
 
This is why on today’s #CabralConcept  1936 I’m going to review and outline the top 7 cancer-fighting foods and how to easily incorporate them into your daily diet - Enjoy the show and let me know what some of your favorites were!

None of us have enough lifetimes to live in order to learn what we need to know about becoming successful in any one area…
 
The good news is that we can borrow from other people’s wisdom whenever we’d like so that we can shortcut that learning curve to success…
 
But, once you know the shortcut exists you still have to factor in one more formula in order to make it to the top…
 
That’s exactly what we’ll be discussing on today’s #CabralConcept 1935 on how to achieve excellence in any area of your life - Enjoy the show and let me know your top takeaway!

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!   

Ellen: I have been told but a few naturopaths that my DHEA is high, ranging from low 200’s to 390. I am a 60 yo post menopausal women who experiences fatigue, lack of energy and regular insomnia. My primary Dr doesn’t seemed concerned provides little direction. Can you shed light on DHEA’s importance and how to lower? My cortisol is also high. I d not feel stressed.

Karen: Hello Dr. Cabral and thank you in advance for helping me with this problem! I'm a 48 year-old, healthy woman who has experienced flushing, brain fog, and profuse sweating on my eyelids and under my eyes whenever I consume garlic. Sometimes, even the smell of garlic can cause the onset of these symptoms. Unfortunately, this sensitivity has become much worse as I have gotten older. These symptoms will last for several hours and are quite uncomfortable but can be lessened slightly by drinking large quantities of water and/or by chewing mint gum. It certainly makes sense to me that this is an allicin sensitivity, but my symptoms seem so odd in comparison to other food sensitivity based symptoms. Do you have any insight into what might be going on and/or if there is anything additional I can do to offset the symptoms if I happen to accidentally ingest garlic? I am in the habit of asking restaurant staff if certain dishes contain garlic, but oftentimes they either do not know or incorrectly state that there is no garlic in the recipe (and sometimes there is not enough garlic in a recipe for my taste buds to detect it but there is still enough for my body to respond negatively). Thank you!!!

Sarah: I understand the benefits of infrared sauna multiple times a week. Right now I’m only able to go once a week. However, I do workout 5x a week, a mix of strength & hiit, and sweat a lot. So my question is, does sweating during cardio provide the same benefit as the detoxification benefits of the sauna?

Ana: Hey Doc! I'm a certified L1 & L2 IHP and I love it so much. I always go back to the materials and I feel like I will be doing so forever. There is so much content! My question is: One of my client's saliva hormonal test came back with lower than normal cortisol at the four different times in the day but quite high DHEA.Some estrogen dominance too but testosterone was ok. I'm usually used to high DHEA when cortisol is high but not high DHEA when cortisol is low. Is this common? Why would this happen?

Roberta: I have hashimoto, I keep reading, should not take ashwagandha if you have hashimoto. Is this true? Thank you Roberta 56 with terrible hot flashes due to post menopause,brainfog,anxiety and panic attacks. Thank you

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: 

Karen: Hi there Dr. Cabral and thank you for being the one resource I trust for non-biased answers to my health-related questions. I am a fair-skinned, healthy, 48 year-old woman. Recent gene testing shows that I might be prone to Vitamin D deficiencies and historically, I struggle to keep my 25-OH Vitamin D levels above 20 ng/mL in the wintertime and 40 ng/mL in the summertime unless I am supplementing with vitamin D3. I prefer to get D3 from the sun when weather permits but am very torn between the positives of sun exposure and the negatives of skin damage, and it seems as if health practitioners have wildly conflicting opinions. Currently, I use the app 'D Minder' to tell me when I can get vitamin D from the sun (based on my geographical location and the time of year) and I lay out in the sun in a two-piece swimsuit for a total of 20-30 minutes on those days (usually 3-5 days a week). Am I risking unnecessary sun damage with this approach and is there anything I can do to offset the damage such as red-light therapy, serums containing sea buckthorn and other healthy oils, eating a healthy whole-foods diet, or even the use of Fernblock (Polypodium - fern leaf extract) which I am considering taking prior to sun exposure? Very much looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

Maria: I have read lots to do with the importance of avoiding rancid/oxidised oils, however was wondering if this is also the case with spices. Would there be any harm (despite loss in flavour and potency) in consuming stale spices? Such as many cardamom pod seeds I have found are more of a tan brown colour than black. Just wondering if It’s better to throw them or fine to use them. Thank you so much for your help!

Chelsea: Hello Dr Cabral, This question is regarding cumulative radiation exposure and is there any way to mitigate it. In the last 17 years I have had 7 CAT scans. Two of the head (sinus issues) and five of the abdominal (kidney stones) area. It’s been seven years since my last CAT scan. In the past two years I have had five xrays of my hips, two xrays of my chest and one of my shoulder. Most recent X-ray was March 2021. I am scheduled for a mammogram in May 2021. The breast center will not provide ultrasound if mammogram is not done (I did do thermography and need further evaluation). Mouth X-rays at dentist as well in Feb 2021. I’m 44 and terrified at of all the cumulative damage that this radiation may have/has done to my body and want to know...is there anything I can do about it? Thank you for all that you do, all that you share and the empathy you resonate. With gratitude, faithful listener since May 2016, Chelsea

Gordon: Hello Dr Cabral, appreciate all you do! I have suffered from lower abdominal discomfort on and off since my time in the Vietnam War. I was treated for an intestinal infection. The acute pain went away. Years later I had surgery for an inguinal hernia. The pain (cramping, tenderness, some bloating and gas) came back, and continues on a regular basis now, affecting my sleep. Many drs thought these symptoms were related to the surgery - adhesions or possible that it affected the nerves. I was put on Gabapentin which did not help. Any thoughts on relation to the hernia or am I still experiencing issues related to the intestinal infection I had so many years ago? Thanks!

Darren: Good day to you Dr Cabral and your family. I checked the search bar before asking this question but maybe I did a poor job in doing so. If possible, can you briefly touch on or probably consider doing a future show on the best time to take different supplements, vitamins and minerals so as to avoid any conflict, adverse interaction and optimal absorption possible. For instance, I understand Vitamin A can decrease Vitamin D intake. Also, if that's the case, won't the minerals and vitamins in multivitamins inhibit each other? As always, keep up great work

Lara: Hi, dr. Cabral :) I have a question about the avocado seed (pit) powder as a supplement. It’s supposed to strengthen the immune system and supposedly it’s also anti inflammatory and a powerful antioxidant.. I’ve got a recommendation for it for fibromyalgia but I don’t trust anything until I check in with you first haha..

Thousands of years ago eating seasonally was just part of our normal everyday routine…
 
However, with mass farming production, easy freight shipping, and growing indoors has allowed for us to get any food pretty much any time of the year…
 
But, did you know that certain foods eaten at specific times of the year actually improve the health of your body…
 
On today’s #CabralConcept 1930 I’ll share how the human body was meant to eat seasonally and why this Spring you should be reaching for certain foods to enhance your overall health - 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!   

Jen: We always hear about Hemoglobin A1C being too high and that being a concern, but I'd like to understand if Hemoglobin A1C can be considered too low. If so, what would cause that/ what can be done for it? I learned in IHP that ideal range is 4-5.6, but my number is 3.6 on my lab test. I struggle with hypoglycemia symptoms, could that be related?

Karima: Hi Doc! Love love love your content, you're doing an incredible job! I am a 23 year old healthy woman that is trying to optimise my health as much as possible. I've done several of your protocols (parasites, detox, cbo, cbo finisher), exercise regularly, sleep well, meditate, eat well, take the DNS, omega 3, zinc, magnesium, vitamin D, CBD oil, B complex and digestive enzymes on a daily basis. I'm diving deeper and deeper into biohacking because I want to optimise my performance at work (I'm an entrepreneur) and just started taking Coenzyme Q10 on top of my other supplements. Also started adding a tsp of mct oil to my daily smoothies. My questions are: 1. Do you think there will be a detrimental effect of taking coenzyme Q10 if I'm just 23? Could my body develop a dependency to it? 2. Any other supplements that you have seen in your experience that are great for boosting mental performance (creativity, focus & efficiency)?

Tab: Hi! First off, thanks for all you do! I’ll be joining the IHP school in the fall and have already started directing people I love in your direction for their health & wellness needs. My question is about metabolism. I’ve heard someone say recently that to speed up metabolism is actually not good for longevity due to it being accelerated cell division. They equated accelerated cell division to early aging/death. Their point was to eat things that are more nutritionally dense so that our body uses it better. Long story short, I’m just conflicted on the issue of metabolism and want to be able to coach my clients with the truth. Thanks again and God bless!

Jacquie: Hi Dr. Cabral, I hope you're having a good day! I'm an IHP and I'm writing on behalf on my 27 yr old client. He has completed the big 5 and we've been working the process (modified CBO, HM detox, 21 DCD). He's lost over 20 pounds and feels generally healthier. The only issues remaining are the swelling on the whole right side of his body and sometimes pain in his lower right abdomen. My question is why the swelling just on one side? I could see if he had an injury to a specific area that could cause swelling, but it just seems odd to be the whole right side of his body. He does have one kidney that is quite smaller than the other, but all the conventional medicine tests and the big 5 lab results came back saying his kidneys are healthy/functioning normally. Any ideas of where to look next? Thank you for all that you do!

Lina: Hello, Been listening to your podcast for a few years now, and it has completely changed my life!  My fasted sugar is between 110 and 120, not the Big 5, or 21 day detox ( not even during it), Fatlossity, or other types of yearly cleanses helped me find the cause/solution for that number; the only time I managed to keep it under 100 was while doing keto for 6 months/counting macros.  Your podcast educates me enough to know I don't want to do that as my long term lifestyle choice.  I'm trying to eat a mostly plan based, gluten free, fiber fueled diet. I exercise 3 times a week and go beyond 12,000 steps daily, have my last meal at least 3 hrs before bed, take berberine and sleep well, ... so apparently I'm doing all the right things for the past 3 years and nothing seems to help me lower that number. I also struggle with weight loss.  My endocrinologist said nothing could be done right now, but to wait a few years until I actually did become diabetic and then I could get a prescription that could help me manage it.  I don't want to follow that advice. I want to continue trying to find the root cause and stop it from becoming diabetes, since it runs in my family. I don't know where to look next.  thank you for giving us this space.

Sarah: I’ve noticed that when I eat a lot of processed foods & sugar, not only do I get the immediate bloating and puffiness the next day, but when I keep that up for several consecutive days, the areas around my genitals, anus and left armpit gets itchy and I get little bumps which might be hives. My affected armpit gets a distinct yeasty smell and stops emitting regular body odor. I’m aware this has something to do with Candida overgrowth, but can you tell me why I get itchy in those specific areas? It’s like my tell tale sign that I’ve overdone it and need to get back on track with healthy eating. I just want to understand why this happens. Thank you!

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: 

Nate: Hi Dr. Cabral, I just completed the intestinal cleanse during my CBO protocol, and despite using up to 5 capsules each time by day 2, and doing the whole cleanse for 5 days as per the instructions and plenty of hydration and exercise, I never had more than one bowel movement a day (which is what I was having before the cleanse). The only change was that stools were darker because of the black powder. This response does not seem normal - what can explain it? Does this means I technically did not cleanse the die-off enough? Should I have continued for more days? Any help is much appreciated! Thank you for all you do! Nate

Janie: Hello Dr. Cabral, I’m writing in because I am concerned about my HRV. I started wearing a Fitbit a year ago because I was interested in the cardiovascular tracking technology as I have a family history of strokes & cardiovascular problems. I am a 49 year old women, always remained active throughout my life & never struggled with weight gain or fluctuations. I exercise regularly (I powerwalk around 5 miles a day, my steps are often between 15-20k on my tracker), I eat exceptionally well (tons of veggies in my diet), I drink a little coffee and wine but nothing excessive, I have a good home life with low stress but my HRV is in a range between 14-20 & usually on the lower side. Everything that I read says I am way lower than optimal but I do all of the things that it says to do to optimize? I am concerned bc I have read that this can be a warning sign of strokes. Should I talk to a doctor about screening tests or is there anything you would suggest I do to improve my HRV?

MacKenzie: Will the environmental toxicity test show if my saline breast implants are causing me to be sick? If so what do I look for on the test to show me that?

Sam: What causes skin tags and are there any natural ways to get rid of them? It seems like I get a couple new ones each year. They are very small but can be annoying.

Kelsey: I have gilberts syndrome so it’s hard to tell what my fatigue is coming from. I don’t love the idea of having silicone in my body but have extremely uneven breasts so I am scared to get them removed. Are there any tests to test for silicone? Will the environmental toxicity test show me anything?

Kenzie: My OAT showed I am deficient in amino acids. What would you suggest? Saw that amino acids or bcaas can cause cancer

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!   

Kazz: Hi Dr Cabral, thank you so much for sharing with us all your health knowledge, it is so appreciated! I have a question regarding vitamin D3 and the ingredient you use, specifically cholecalciferol. I searched on your podcasts for information regarding this and couldn't find.. I have heard, and my own follow-up research results show, that this ingredient is also used in rat poison and there seem to be some adverse effects from it in humans where they have similar symptoms as rats when poisoned by this. I'm sure you have some information on this and I'd love to hear more about it from your perspective, maybe even a whole podcast on it if you feel there is much info and people would benefit from hearing it. There is not too much discussion on this online that I can see and maybe your balanced perspective on cholecalciferol would benefit people when they are researching it. I'd love a juicy discussion about it from you if it is worthy of one, and why you think it is a good thing for us to take when it is an ingredient in rat poison. I do understand that most of us are deficient in vit d and supplementing benefits us, but why cholecalciferol when it seems to be used in rat poison? And then, what about the symptoms some people experience when taking it?

Jenna: Hey Dr. Cabral! You and your team have helped me so much over the past 4 years with digestive distress and acne troubles, and I am so greatful for all that you do! I was wondering if you had any podcasts that go into depth on cavities? I went to the dentist in December and had to get 5 cavities filled, and I feel like I already have another one 4 months later. I eat well, limit my coffee intake to 2 cups a day maximum (yes I know I can still do better here), and exercise daily. I breathe through my nose normally, but in times of stress (my day job gets very stressful) and during hard workouts, I breathe through my mouth. Could this cause cavity formations? I never used to get cavities as a child, and got my first one at 18 years old. I’d love to get your take!

Stephanie: Hi Dr Cabral! I'm wondering if you have any new research or updated information about the AHCC supplement? Almost a year ago on one of your Friday Review podcasts, you had briefly mentioned this supplement and specifically related it to HPV but said that you couldn't say much more about it. I recently had an abnormal pap test with atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance with a positive test for other HR-HPV (not 16 or 18). This is the reason I have been interested in the research on AHCC. My next question is do you know of a good, high quality AHCC supplement that I could purchase? Thank you for everything you do and sharing your knowledge. I listen to your podcast pretty much everyday! I look forward to your response. Thanks again! Stephanie

Victor: After a near death accident in 1994, I have not aged one day. Peopke can't believe when they see pictures of 30 years ago and even my primary doctor has said so. Can you explain?

Hayley: Hi Dr Cabral, hoping you can offer some suggestions. Stuttering in children... I have an 8 year old son who has suffered with stuttering off and on over the years however had gotten worse and has been very persistent over the past 2 or so years now. He’s been seeing a speech therapist for a while now who offers techniques but it’s not really helping. A couple years ago we did the gut rebuilding protocol and a food sensitivity test. Nothing had seemed to shift it although I have read that increasing B1 and some amino acids may help. He regularly has DNS, we are mostly plant based and gf. I give additional zinc, c, b12 and iron when I suspect these are on the low side. Being in Australia I can no longer afford postage and the cost of further testing, do you know of anything else we could try? Thanks so much

Meredith: Hi Dr. Cabral, I am so grateful for your work and it’s helped me so much. My questions is about my 7 year old son- from age 3-4.5 we lived in a home with black mold- I have tested positive and have been working the CBO and mold protocol myself. My son sneezes constantly, especially in the am- also struggles with paying attention in school and listening/complying with us. I am sure we have gotten out of the mold house, and I’ve had our current house tested. He tested allergic to mold and dust at the doctor, but I’ve not done a urine test for him. I want to help him and get rid of his symptoms. Assuming he does have mold, is there a kid protocol that is safe? Thanks so much- your advice is greatly appreciated!

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: 

Ryan: Dr Cabral, I have had GI issues with taking supplemental oils (primarily CLA and, most of all, fish oil). Is there any way to circumvent this? Background: though I’ve always struggled with fish oil, I have had my gal bladder removed fairly recently. My digestion did not take a tut. For the worst, though the surgeon prepared me and warned me for such. I basically haven’t noticed it being gone and have been on high fat diets with no issues, but I still figured the whole “not having a gall bladder” was pertinent info for you.

Lee-anne: Hi Dr Cabral, I wanted to tap into your knowledge about something that Iv noticed in myself. I have a feeling of fullness in my throat, like I always need to swallow. There isn't anything visible to note and I can't think of anything that makes it worse or better and there doesn't seem to be a time of day that affects it either. Do you have any ideas? Thank you again for your time and your work, I really appreciate all that you do.

Pam: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have been getting immunotherapy shots for my seasonal allergies for 2 years. My allergy doctor feels that they are the only way to reduce my medication intake and build immunity against my highest allergens. As I listen to your podcasts and lean about toxins, I am wondering if I am just adding toxins to my body with every shot. I received results from the mycotoxin testing with high markers in the multiple mold species category. I am currently finishing the CBO protocol and will be starting the mold protocol along with the CBO finisher. Do the benefits of immunotherapy outweigh the risks? Is it possible that my allergy to mold will be eliminated by the mold protocol? (I'm not really clear on how they are connected) Thanks so much for your time! I have learned so much from you and look forward to future podcasts!

Andrea: Hi Dr. Cabral! Do you know of any safe and effective ways to treat yeast overgrowth while pregnant? 

Haley: Hi Dr. Cabral! My questions today are about varicose veins and general circulation. I was wondering what the actual imbalance(s) were that would cause varicose/spider veins and general circulation issues like I seem to be happening. Also, do you have any recommendations on supplements, protocols, devices, or services (acupuncture, massage, etc.) that could help with varicose veins? Last question. The muscles in my lower legs/ankles are used a lot throughout the day, and my calves run pretty tight; is it possible for tight muscles (especially in the lower leg) to compress my veins to the point of poor circulation and being one, if not the cause, for my varicose veins? Some background: I’m 31 and a professional dancer/teacher. Between work and spending time in nature with my dogs, I average 15-20,000 steps a day. Most of my work comes from tap dancing which involves a lot of downward force and lower-leg-muscle usage. I average 12-15 hours of tap dancing per week. I’ve noticed the varicose veins (and some spider veins) on my lower legs getting more prominent. I do experience some fatigue and heat in my lower legs when on my feet for an extended time. My fingers and toes usually run pretty cold, but they are also “clammy” a lot of the time, even when my body is warm. Thank you!
