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!   

Anonymous: Hi doctor Cabral, I have a bit of an embarrassing question and I feel very uncomfortable discussing this with the people I know, so really hoping you can help me. How can you tell the difference between brown vaginal discharge (old blood) and a runny stool on your hygienic pad? I have some bowel issues, so sometimes when I pass gas, a little bit stool comes out and ends up on my pad. And when I wear tight pants and sit all day, the pad can move, so the stool ends up a bit higher – where your vaginal discharge usually is. I want to be mindful of brown discharge too, because I have some hormonal problems. Anyway, I really feel super embarrassed about asking this question, so I hope you don’t mind answering. Thanks so much in advance for your answer, I really appreciate it.

Mark: Hi doctor Cabral, What are your thoughts on hydrogen-rich water? Are the health claims around it true? And do you think a hydrogen water maker would be a good investment for one’s health? Thank you in advance for your advice! Mark

Michelle: Hi! I know you recommend being dairy free. I am for the most part. I really like Greek yogurt and seem to tolerate it well. What are your opinions on yogurt?

Tim: Hi Dr. Cabral, I love your podcast and love your products. Thank you for all of your time and effort, I appreciate it. My question is does diet tonic water have any negative effects on the body? I like to drink one in my shaker cup in the morning mixed with lemon. I just like the taste and a change from regular water. Is this ok or is it not good for me?

Simon: Hi Dr C! For about two years I’ve been getting red swollen sores on my lip and penis (always in the same place) that a bacterial test has shown to be overgrowth of staphylococcus. They typically flare up at the same time and usually when I get a cold or am run-down. Can you recommend anything to rid myself of this overgrowth permanently (or reduce the frequency and magnitude of outbreaks? I tried using antibacterial wash consistently for a fortnight but that doesn’t seem to have done the job. I’d love your thoughts.

Anonymous: Hi dr cabral, many many thanks for all you do! I have a question about my 18 yr old daughter. She has a little history, at around 14 she started restricting her diet for her sport. Thats the short version. During that tine she started her period. Very heavy periods. It lead to anemia, an iron transfusion & followed by a blood transfusion. She now is sadly on a bc pill. she still has irregular periods, cramps.. i took her for her yearly chec up at her regular doctor and her non fasting cholesterol came back high. She is a very active girl. Competitive cheerleader, tumbling, loves running & working out and honestly eats pretty healthy. She also suffers from anxiety.. Are there supplements that can help. Please help with some direction as to how i can help get her on track—endless thanks

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: 

Kate: Can you talk about nail fungus? I have it on all nails in one hand only for two years and nothing has worked. Ive tried anti fungals, and various oils and home remedies.

Lorena: Hello! I am a 25 year old healthy woman, I healed myself from a wide range of health issues by following your protocols so thank you very much for that! I continue my journey with the daily foundational protocol L3 & eat a predominantly plant-based diet with some good quality animal protein twice a week. I eat 3 meals a day and exercise 5x a week. I usually do 12-14h fast on a daily basis (sometimes 17h accidentally on weekends when I sleep in) but I was thinking of implementing the 24h fast that I know you do on Mondays myself haha! I don't want to lose more weight but I would do it for health reasons. Do you think it is a bad idea given that I'm a woman and it might be taking it too far? Or do you think that 24h once a week is fine? I wouldn't exercise on that day and would work from home relaxed. I'm a Vata body type so don't want to take it too far with my nervous system but I really want to get those autophagy benefits.

Darren: Hey, Dr Cabral. I appreciate all you do for the community. You may likely receive this either during or after the Olympic games but I've a question with regard to the controversy surrounding two young athletes. Christine Mboma and Beatrice Masilingi both 18 years old from Namibia are among the fastest in the world over 400m in world even at that age. However even though both of them were born female and grew up as such, the international governing bodies are saying be they must take drugs to reduce their naturally-occurring testosterone if they want to compete in women's 400m mean because their naturally occurring testosterone is considered too high. They must medically limit that level to less than 5 nmol/L, double the normal female range of below 2 nmol/L. The question here is whether taking medication to reduce natural testosterone is healthy and is there an ayurvedic or natural health means to do so for other women or female athletes who may find themselves sin that situation. Thank you.

Kathy: I am a 65 year old female with a white circle in middle of back about 4 inches in width and white spots under arm encompassing armpit. Looks like pigment issues but also where I have rubbed for years when I run 25 miles a week. Could It be from rubbing or something else going on.

Anonymous: Hi dr cabral.. thank you for all you do! No one wants to ask this question for sure but maybe i will help someone else too. In short i seem to have for the last couple years my stomach seems to have a hard time digesting? Strong gas. No pretty way to say it. Sometimes it CAN be after your regular culprits like brocoli or kale etc .. but it seems un normal. Would a probiotic help or make it worse or can it help? I tried the healthy gut support hoping it would help and Even the dns seems to contribute to it.. Something tells me i skipped a step there but im honestly feeling a little stressed/anxious about committing and getting through the cbo protocol.. i just want to feel like my best self please help! all the best :)

Hayley: Hi Dr. Cabral! I’ve had neck pain off an on for years. What makes your neck pop and crack some days but not others? I don’t typically notice it on days when I don’t hurt. Do you have an recommendations for a way to support my neck while I sleep since most of my neck pain starts over night and I notice it when I wake. Thanks!

I have no doubt this will start as one of the more controversial shows I’ve ever done, but if you keep an open mind and stay to the end I think you’ll find the answers to:
 
  • Is sugar the enemy?
  • Is it carbs or processed carbs that cause issues?
  • Could heavy fats be a hidden culprit?
  • What does the science say?
  • How to possibly ease carbs back into your diet
 
We have a lot to cover and I’ll add over a dozen scientific research studies to the show notes page, so now let’s dive into whether or not sugar and carbohydrates cause type 2 diabetes!
 
Tune into today’s #CabralConcept 2028 for all the details - Enjoy the show and after listening let me know what you thought in the comments!

Ever find yourself stuck in the same place in life, or thinking the same negative thoughts day in and day out?
 
If so, it’s not a surprise since neuroscience has now taught us that 91% of the thoughts we have each day are virtually identical to those of the day before…
 
Therefore, if we want to change our life for the better, we must discover how to change the way we think…
 
That’s why on today’s #CabralConcept 2026 I’d like to share with you how to break the cycle of negative thinking - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

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!   

Kenneth: Really enjoyed your podcast with mindpump. I've had some really bad stomach issues that have lessened since going to a more high fat, high protein diet and smaller, but more meals. I've had more success lately, but your approach has struck a chord with me. My question is in regards to the 'bio-film' that comes out with bowel movements as a gel like substance. Do I need to get rid of it? Is it a bad thing? Thanks!

Hayley: Hi Dr. Cabral! I wake up almost every morning with a sinus headache. I’ve had difficulty breathing through my nose for years. I purchased a high quality air filter (one you recommended), and no longer let our dogs sleep in the bedroom with us. I take an allergy pill every day but don’t feel like they have much affect on me anymore and I do a saline rinse nearly every morning and night to help clear some congestion but it only works temporarily. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Paula: Hi Doc! Have you heard of Lumen? Not sure if it just marketing or if its actually worth it. It measures your metabolism by measuring the CO2 concentration using a breath maneuver, which is performed by inhaling a fixed volume of air through the Lumen device (dynamic to each individual), holding it for 10 seconds, and exhaling fully. So they basically recommend exhaling every morning which then helps you identify things like what the best workout for that day is, how many carbs to eat to avoid fat storage, etc.

Jennifer: Hi!! Thank you so much for showing up every weekend to share your incredible knowledge with us. I am a 23 year old woman, I've done several of your protocols and just maintain it now with some DNS, omega 3, probiotic, vitamin D, C, digestive enzymes & magnesium every day. I eat a predominantly paleo plant-based diet with the occasional fish here and there. I do 45 minute sessions of lower body strength training Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Tuesdays is upper body TRX with some body weight circuits like high knees, skipping, etc and Saturday is Upper body strength training with sprints. I therefore feel like I'm always performing anaerobic exercises and not sure if I should implement some sort of aerobic exercise? I am super fit and I do more than 10k steps every day and I feel great but not sure if I should do aerobic for health-based reasons. I just don't really have the time to add another workout day and I also enjoy the 2 days of rest per week.

Hayley: Hi Dr. Cabral! For years I have noticed a lot of tension in the right side of my neck. When I lay down at night, I notice that it seems like I have a second pulse that is not my carotid artery but it beats loud and if look at my neck in the mirror I can see it pulsing. I don't notice this however when I stand and look in the mirror. Is this something to be concerned with, or fairly normal? Thanks!

Marika: Hi! I have a very hard treatable candida biofilm (probably multi species - I also have streps and sibo) visible in my mouth and probably throughout my whole body since I feel both rashes and chest pain when consuming the slightest of even complex carbs like wild rise and sweet potato. I’ve spent 20000 dollars on diets and protocols - tried similar to CBO program including biofilm breakers with practitioners. It doesn’t resolve - if I eat too little carbs my body and Candida gets in defense mode and if I put in just a little all symptoms are back - what level of carbs shall I eat and what else to do? Also have insulin resistance and helicobacter etc. Plus toxicity - trying to get all out on continuous protocols. Best Marika

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: I have 2 questions about supplementing chromium for blood glucose regulation. First, are the effects of supplementing chromium acute? Or if I were to stop, would there still be a lingering effect due to increased stores in my body? If acute, how long would that last? One meal? Two? One day? Secondly, would you use a picolinate version, or a GTF version? Or something else?

Carolyn: Hello Dr. Cabral. I just wanted to tell you I love your podcast and I just finished reading your book. I am 35 and have PCOS and believe I am a kapha body type. I typically try to fast for 14 hours overnight to help with my insulin resistance. However, I work twice a week and leave my house very early on those days. On my way to work I like to drink my coffee (I do add collagen powder to it). I know this breaks my fast, but I have been reading that consuming caffeine on an empty stomach should be avoided. Can this be impacting my weight loss or causing any other negative impact?

Alex: Hello doctor Cabral, I'm really hoping you can help me with the following. My 74 old father won't stop smoking. He's been doing it since he was 18 and trust me, we tried everything you can imagine tp get to stop but of no avail. The only win we had is that got him down to 3 cigarettes a day, but that's all that he is willing to give us. He has high blood pressure and high cholesterol, but other than that no major health issues. I would really like to know if there's anything he can do to reduce the damage that those cigarettes are creating. I love my dad and I want to keep him healthy and alive as long as possible. Are there any supplements, foods, natural therapies or anything else that we can get him to do in order to lessen the damage a little bit. Thank you so much in advance. Your opinion and knowledge mean the world to me. Best, Alex

Cynthia: Hi doctor Cabral, How would you treat someone who has GI issues (smelly gas & bloating) caused by dysbiosis? I did a stool test which showed no candida or bacterial overgrowth, but lowered amounts of beneficial, residential flora. Thanks, Cynthia

Tracy: Hi Dr Cabral. Thank you so much for your podcasts. They are both inspiring and educational. My question is about diastasis recti. I believe this is why I have a bulge on my stomach that doesn’t go away with diet. I am a mother of 2 (the youngest is 3). How would you recommend to heal this issue.

Sarah: Hi Dr Cabral! If someone absolutely has to take antibiotics, what do you recommend they do (afterwards or in parallel) so their gut health is not ruined?Thanks so much! Sarah

Unfortunately, the likelihood of your MD knowing that Alzheimer's and dementia are now reversible is highly unlikely… 
 
Of course, it’s not their fault since this is something that is not taught in traditional medical schools where monotherapeutic treatment plans are the only given option (even though they’ve been proven to fail over and over)…
 
This is why we need to take our health and our family’s into our own hands…
 
Today on the #CabralConcept 2022 I’m going to share with you a clinical study and published protocol with a proven 90% success rate on the 25 ways (some) doctors are reversing Alzheimer's & dementia - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

Some people believe that by “dieting” alone or reducing their calories they automatically get the same benefits of intermittent fasting…
 
And since there are quite a number of people that share this viewpoint, I’d like to break down the big differences between the two…

How could one chemical cause so much damage in the human body?
 
The answer goes back to a breakdown in the ability to process, metabolize, and eliminate a compound called glutamate…
 
Some people simply aren’t as equipped to handle this natural and artificially created food chemical, which is why no one food is right for everyone…
 
On today’s #CabralConcept 2020 I’d like to share with you how gluten and glutamate cause learning disorders, auto-immune, anxiety, mental health, and neurological issues in the brain and body - 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!   

Anonymous: Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions! I love tuning in to your podcast every day to learn from you. During the summer community detox in June, my stool had a LONG (5-6" I would estimate) whitish-yellow mucousy strand in it. This was upon waking on day 3. I would love to know what you think caused this or what it could be. Anyhow, I'm happy it's OUT! Thank you in advance!

Jamie:Hi Dr. Cabral, you have been a gift for me! I have learned so much from you and have applied many changes to my life and am so grateful. Thank you. My question is about “throat stones”. No one likes to talk about them, and I’m hoping you can shed some light on what they are, and how to prevent them. Thank you!!

Mary: I’ve recently been hearing and learning about Ayahuasca plant medicine as a miracle type cure for things such as addiction, trauma, depression and anxiety. I would love to hear your thoughts on this and these types of retreats in places like Costa Rica.

David: Hi Dr. Cabral, I've been living in bad times for 5 years now. Non of the doctors here in Hungary were able to figure out what's wrong so they sent me to a psychiatrist who gave me a bunch of antidepressants. My symptomps are: extreme fatigue, brain fog, low mood, difficult concentrating, poor memory. They say it is severe depression... well, it is not. I always knew these symptoms are caused by something so I started to read books. My mother in law works in a LAB so I had her checked my anti TPO and anti TG and I figured out I have Hashimoto's. With your diet I lowered my TSH from 3.9 to 1.5 which is awsome, but I still feel weak and fatigued. Lots of symptomps passed though. Difficult to fall asleep, I am tired when I wake up, deep sleep is usually 9 minutes O.o I avoid gluten, dairy, corn, suger, coffee. I eat tons of veggies and fruits, smoothies, I reduced my fat intake and take B6 so my blood pressure lowered from 170/110 to 120/80. I think I am healing but I am fed up living in a 90year old sick man's body (I am 30) Anyways, you are awsome and you have ANSWERS for everything. Others always said, it was all in my head :( No it is not... Something is causing it. You are a blessing to the world, thank you for everything, I hope one day I find what's causing it!

Thomas: Hi Dr. Cabral, I’m in the process of completing my level two IHP certification, and I absolutely love the program! I recently completed a 7 day functional medicine detox. I routinely donate blood on a quarterly basis, and I have done this for approximately three years. I have never had an issue with hemoglobin levels, and 13.0 is required for men to give blood. However, one week following completion of my most recent detox, I went to donate blood, and my hemoglobin was 11.6. Therefore, I was unable to donate blood that day. My question is this - can completing a 7 day detox cause a significant decrease in hemoglobin levels? Additionally, besides red meat and eggs, what foods would you recommend as healthy sources of dietary iron? Thank you for all you do! Tom

Dora: Heavy metal detox smoothy (safe or not) Hi Dr. Cabral, I have hashimoto’s and all the endocronologists says it cant be cured and once my thyroid is destroyed i can get hormone pills... I Heard about celery juice and Heavy metal detox smoothie (wild blue berries, barely grass juice powder, banana, orange, cilantro, dulse /sea weed/, spirulina) The question is. Can it be harmful? They say it leads out Heavy metals out of your Body. But what if it grabs Heavy metals and drops it somewhere else? In my brain, liver, thyroid etc. Is it a safe way to get rid of Heavy metals? I think it could help with curing Hashimoto Thank you for everything you do!!! With your help and Podcasts many of my family members cured their diseases completly. It is my turn now. Doctors say Hashimoto is not curable, i dont believe them.

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: 

Michael: Hi dr Cabral do you recommend any lab test or supplement protocol for someone dealing with post Covid syndrome? I have mold, candida and h pylori as well.

Thomas: Hey Dr. Cabral, I have been taking CBD (yours when available) for about four years now, mostly every morning. I noticed all of the beneficial effects early on. Now, I don't notice a difference when I forget to take it, meaning I stay calm and balanced in a parasympathetic state. Is there a point at which one can reduce dosage during non-stressful times, or is this one of those supplements that has a long-term effect and should be taken everyday? Thanks, you are the goat.

Danica: Hi Dr. Cabral! I’m wondering what your advice is for vata- kapha dosha. I myself am about 2/3 vata, 1/3 kapha, and I find a lot of the advice to be contradictory between these two. Often, if you just went smack dab in between the two, it would look like advice for pitta, which I have almost none of. I understand that you treat the imbalance from which dosha the symptom is arising, but I mean more for general daily advice such as food, exercise, sleep, etc. Thank you so much!!

Tracy:  Hi Dr Cabral. Have you heard of a product called ASEA. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this.

Lara: Hi, dr. Cabral :) I’ve seen a question in the support group on Facebook about the crystal deodorants where only one ingredient is Ammonium Alum.. is that a safe ingredient or should we stay away from it? Thanks so much and have a great day, everyone!

Molly: Hi I was wondering if "Hi-Ball" Energy (zero cal) seltzers AND/OR "regular" seltzer water breaks a fast? Thanks I have really enjoyed your podcast so far, I just started listening last week!

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!

The #1 reason to exercise is NOT to lose weight…

 I explain all of this in-depth on how to beat fatigue and the #1 reason you need to be exercising on today’s #CabralConcept 2015 - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought below!

It’s amazing that it’s taken this long, but finally, we are starting to find a balance with “experts” in the space no longer subscribing to the notion that everyone should be fasting the majority of the day every day…
 
This is very important since from a clinical standpoint many of my colleagues and I have seen rapidly declining thyroid and sex hormones in those that “over fast…”
 
That’s why on today’s #CabralConcept 2013 I’d like to share with you how not to over-fast & shut down your thyroid and progesterone levels - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments below!

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!   

Chantal: Dear doctor Cabral, What is the best way to lose belly fat? I’m an active 38-year-old female, no kids, healthy weight, working out regularly, meditate, do not smoke or drink, eat whole food plant-based diet..I'm pretty much perfect, haha ;) I have muscle definition all over my body, but there’s a layer of fat over my stomach that I just can’t get rid of it. I do have some digestive issues, so when I'm bloated my belly looks huge and it makes me very self conscious. Any advice you have would be much appreciated. Thanks so much! Chantal

Lara: Hi, dr. Cabral :) I’ve tried to find it on previous episodes but with no luck, so I’m writing in on behalf of my friend.. he’s got plantar fibromitosis and he’s sometimes in a lot of pain and has been advised surgery, but doesn’t want it.. could you explain this condition a bit more, why does it occur and what would you recommend? Thank you so much for everything you do, you are absolutely amazing! Have a great day, everyone!

Jamie: Hi Dr Cabral, another quick question after thanking you again for all you & your awesome team do. I have been part of the community now for over 3 years & it has changed my life & will subsequently change my children’s lives (maybe even my teams lives once they are sick of hearing my changed diet etc!) Massive heartfelt thank you. This year I decided that to get serious & finish my internal health journey (regular strength exercise next!) so to do another CBO heavy metal & mould protocols I didn’t need the distraction of alcohol so decided to make 2021 alcohol free (almost 6 months in so covid has made this easy :-) ) as a result I needed the occasional go to drink for a celebration and stumbled across Freestar.co . It seems awesome & tastes incredible (if you like beer) but I wondered what are potential downsides of it and ingredients & therefore what’s a reasonable intake. I mean I think I might make this a permanent social drink preference in the future… ingredients below - thank you!!! ingredients are all natural & highest quality include: Purified Water, Malted Barley (Gluten Free), Perle Hops & blend of other natural ingredients. 10 parts per million of gluten in the finished product & to be officially gluten free you need under 20ppm. 0% alcohol in process and product.

MacKenzie: Hi I am getting surgery and am worried about taking antibiotics. If you have to take them what are the best things to take/ do to reduce the damage it does to your gut.

Simon: Hello, I am wondering if you eat raw fish, specifically raw tuna or salmon. If you do eat raw fish, how often do you eat it, how many ounces, and specifically what type of tuna or salmon do you recommend for the best health benefits and the least amount of mercury/other toxins? Thanks

Jamie: i Dr Cabral, much shorter thank you this time but again thank you for absolutely everything you and your amazing team do. If we wanted to check periodically that there were no tumours benign or not or anything like that growing anywhere in our bodies should we be doing a periodic five year CT scans or what other tests along with the standard functional medicine tests for our general health should we be doing that would likely pick something up? I’m not worried but I have too many friends or colleagues who suddenly found a tumour and it was a bit late.

MacKenzie: Can you cure H Pylori without a total diet change? I have a lot of events going on and cannot do a cleanse but I would like to try to kill the H pylori with the suggestions you made on foods to include and supplements.

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: 

Ruth: Hi Dr Cabral, my daughter introduced me to your podcasts and I am so glad she did. I listened to podcast 1173 on “why you need to boost your low T naturally”. I have been getting the pelleted HRT for a few years now and the day I listened to this podcast I had just gotten pelleted again. I think it will be my last one after listening to your podcast. Because I have had a total hysterectomy two years ago, I thought the pelleting would give my body what it no longer can do by itself.  I also had very low libido and drive at the time I started them.  I am an obese, 67-year-old female and have gained about 20 pounds since the hysterectomy.  Would you recommend I stay off the HRT pelleting and try the supplements you mentioned in your podcast? Vitamin D Magnesium full spectrum Zinc picolinate I already have high cholesterol and you mentioned that HRT could lead to even raise it more!? I am currently on phase III of the cell core detox program.  I do have chronic stress because I am in pain from a scope of my right knee a few years ago where the surgeon cut away some cartilage and said I need a total knee replacement because of arthritis.  I am hoping to correct my nutrition and give my knee the right environment to heal itself. Is this possible? The following is in my HRT pellet: t-pellet 100 mg x 2 estradiol 12.5 mg I also take NP thyroid 90 mg 1am and ½ noon FreeTe  1 capsule daily after 1 ½ months after pellet insertion  (I understand this is to draw out the extra testosterone and make it last longer) Iodine 12.5 mg 1 daily DIM one daily ADK 1 daily Thank you for any insight you can give me!

Luke: Hi Dr. Cabral. Sorry for the controversial question but I need some guidance. My wife and I have just found out that she is pregnant after a very long journey in trying to conceive. During this time we have done lots of research and decided not to vaccinate or have any unnecessary medical intervention during the pregnancy and beyond. My wife and I would like to know what else we should consider doing to make sure that our baby has the best start to life. We both take the level 3 daily protocol, have done all major protocols from equilibrium nutrition in preparation to having our baby, we follow your recommended diet, we exercise and have removed all toxins from the home among other things. I believe that this is enough for us to give our baby the best start to life but is there anything else that we should consider? We know that we are up for some push back from friends and family for our decisions but we just want to make sure that we are doing what is best for our baby. Thanks in advance for your guidance with this.

Sally: Hi doctor Cabral, I was wondering if you could explain what Secretory IgA is. After suffering with digestive issues (bloating, gas, etc) for a few years, I did a stool test, and my Secretory IgA came back very low. My doctor tried to explain what it is and what I can do, but I did not really understand it. I've been listening to your podcast for years, therefore I know that you have the amazing ability to explain difficult medical terms and make them more digestible (pun intended!), so I would be very grateful if you could tell me more about it. In particular, what lowers Secretory IgA and what I can do to fix it? Thank you very much! Sally

David: There are multivitamins that have an AM and PM formula, or are taken separately. One reason is to control certain vitamin and mineral ratios. This is based on science that says that there are different nutrients that compete against or inhibit the absorption of other nutrients. Examples I found online were: Iron can have a negative effect on zinc absorption; Folate can mask the symptoms of B12 deficiency; Vitamin A interferes with absorption of vitamin K; and aim to take calcium and magnesium supplements at least 2 hours apart. Is this something that should be considered when evaluating a multivitamin? Does the dosage and formulation of DNS control for nutrients that compete or inhibit absorption of other nutrients? Thanks so much.

Michael: Why would someone get sicker and develop new symptoms by killing pathogens? I have mold toxicity (Chaetomium), some candida and high h. pylori.
