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!   

Lyndsey: Hi there, my background is I’m 36 yr old female, have history of long term antibiotic use mainly for UTI’s. I also have coeliac disease and was diagnosed at age 19. I’m on the path to getting well and am working with an IHP here is Australia. I have done the starter lab tests, am just waiting for the results of these. I’ve started the CBO protocol and will have been doing it for 1 week tomorrow. My question is that for as long as I can remember if I let myself get really hungry I get nasty bloating and wind pain which then gets worse when I eat something. Why is this? It doesn’t seem to happen if I do t let myself get really hungry. My 14 year old daughter gets the exact same thing. I’d love to know what causes this. Thanks so much

Uchi: At 45, I’ve had all of these conditions : PCOS, Hashimoto’s, High Blood Pressure, Colon Cancer, insomnia, skin allergies, constant diarrhea, leaky gut syndrome and anxiety. Have gone to hundreds of doctors, including 2 fx med but my symptoms continue. I want to advocate for my own health and take it into my own hands. Feeling overwhelmed: I don’t know where to start... address what issue first: Autoinmunity? Gut health? Inflammation? Would love to get some light on where to start and focus first.

Sarah: Good day Dr. Cabral. Is Aphantasia something that can be cured or is it something you have to live with? For listeners, it's basically not being able to picture something in one's mind or visualise mental pictures. When told to visualise (like in your motivation and mindset Mondays or during meditation) I always assumed they meant figuratively or something. I did not know people actually see clear pictures in their mind or imagine clearly like they do in TV or film. Just wanna know if there's a root cause or it's normal some people are just unable to do so. Thank you. Have a great day

Sarren: Me again. I've noticed some pushback in health spheres from some doctors that smoothies are overrated. I enjoy them but they're saying blended fruit and vegetables aren't nutritionally equivalent to the same fruit or veggie left whole even though some properties remain present, blending breaks down insoluble fiber. There's also talk of natural sugars are released from within the cell walls of the fruit and become “free sugars”. Is there any truth to what they're saying or are they just bumping their gums? Keep up great work

Rhonda: Hi doctor Cabral,  I just started listening to your podcast and just can’t get enough of the amazing health information you have made available. Thank you so much!  I have a question I’m hoping you can answer: I’ve been reading a lot about menopause and am a bit spooked about what happens to your body when you lose estrogen. Therefore, I was wondering if there’s anything we can do to delay menopause as far as the lifestyle is concerned?  Also, one of my friends is in early menopause (she’s only 44). Is there anything she could do to reverse it?  Thanks again for everything you do!  Rhonda

Mandy: Hi Dr Cabral, I have a question about my daughter. She is 5 and multiple times each week she is waking up in the night crying with painful legs and feet. Can you offer any advice? Thanks, Mand

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: 

Sheila: I have elevated levels of Cobalt (0.068) past the blue range on the Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis. Can you please explain what could cause this (I don't eat a lot of meat), I do take the EquiLife B Complex once a day. Any other causes for elevation? Is there a concern with this level and if so what can I do to bring it down?

John: Hi Dr. Cabral - I’m having an issue with fatigue and lightheadedness following lunch. I do 2 shakes and 2 meals each day. I don’t have an issue with breakfast which is essentially an oatmeal shake. There’s no protein powder in the shake. I get fatigued following my first whole food meal which is lunch. The next meal at supper causes no issues even if it’s the exact same meal that I had at lunch. I don’t believe the time of day makes a difference because if I go the entire day without eating and only have supper, I get the issue at supper. The common pattern appears to be the first whole food meal of the day. Do you have thoughts on why this could be happening and possible solutions? Some additional information on me: I believe I have mild POTS based on my symptoms of lightheadedness when I get up, etc. I took an Organic Acids test which showed unbalanced gut flora and yeast overgrowth. I am on day 14 of the CBO protocol, but this issue started long before that. I’ve tried Ginger tea which upsets my stomach. I’ve also tried HCL which causes severe burning in my digestive system the next morning. Do I perhaps need to add more food or protein to my first shake to “fire up” my digestion for the day? Thank you for your time.

Suzy: Are you familiar with Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome? This is what I believe I have. I experience a burning sensation in my butt, outer hip and down my IT band. Sometimes it's more of a dull ache. It's especially painful when I lay down and put pressure on those areas. I go to physical therapy but it only helps temporarily and really would like to solve the issue long term. Do you have any insight?

Lara: Hi, dr. Cabral :) I like putting all things I can into my smoothie, so I blend berries with different types of lettuce and herbs, add some seeds like chia and sunflower or pumpkin & linseed (depending on seed cycling), sometimes walnuts, hemp protein, etc.. I like using a lot of cinnamon, turmeric powder (with a bit of black pepper), ginger root in it as well, but I was wondering, how much of each is too much? Because I put A LOT! And too much of a good thing isn’t necessarily better, right? The second part of my question is about the seed cycling.. can I still use other seeds like chia no matter on the time of the month? And how much of the seeds for seed cycling can we use daily? Because I use a lot of sesame (I live in a country where we use Tahini with or in EVERYTHING, lol) Thank you for everything you do, listening to this podcast is a part of my morning routine every day and on days I cannot listen to it, I have withdrawal syndrome.. a little joke there to brighten up your already amazing day (although not far from the truth).. please keep it up, you’re helping so many people.. keep being this amazing! Lots of love for you and your family and everyone listening, Happy healing, Lara

Brynn: Hi Dr. Cabral! Thank you for everything you do! I love your podcast and have learned so much from you! I wanted to write in and ask you what your thoughts are on some of the health issues I am having and have been trying to figure out for the past few years. At the beginning of the day, I am not swollen or inflamed at all. However, throughout the day, my legs (especially ankles and calves) will get swollen and tight. They don’t get as swollen if I’m able to elevate them throughout the day but I have a desk job so it’s hard to elevate them. I workout 5-6 times a week. I’m 25, 134 lbs and 5’8”. It also seems like I have bad circulation since my fingers/feet will stay cold or hot, lips will turn purple when I’m cold, etc. I’m not sure if my circulation is correlated with my swelling or if it’s not related? I also have bad scoliosis - could this play a factor into my circulation and swelling? Sorry this is long, but I would really appreciate any help! I’m doing your parasite cleanse right now and will be doing the mold and heavy metal one after to see if those help. I also had a call with one of your health coaches and they suggested I do the food sensitivity test and the candida metabolic and vitamins test. Thank you so much I’m advance!
