I hope by now you know that when I mention anything pertaining to weight gain or loss it is not about vanity metrics or having to conform to a specific body size…
 
My work is centered around helping people optimize their entire well-being and improve their quality of life…
 
And one of the most critical factors in living longer and reducing “dis-ease” risk (co-morbidities) is by maintaining a healthy weight…
 
I bring this up today because based on new research we now definitively know that COVID is worsened with extra weight gain…
 
On today’s #CabralConcept 2162 I will share with you why that is and how we can improve outcomes - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

We know that in order to be able to achieve our goals in these next 12 months we might need to be following a proven system…
 
However, beyond that, you also need to make sure that you are not the one slowing down your progress or potential…
 
Believe it or not, most people don't achieve their goals, not because of a lack of knowledge, but rather a particular mindset that self sabotages their success…
 
That's why on today's #CabralConcept 2159 I'd like to share with you how to eliminate the 5 toxic mindsets preventing you from achieving your goals - Enjoy the show and let me know if you can think of any others!

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!   

Victoria: Hi Dr. Cabral, Someone I know has been in the hospital with double pneumonia and tuberculosis. The antibiotics weren't helping for awhile so they had to put her in an induced coma for a week and on a ventilator to keep her alive. Eventually, she left the hospital but then her ankles started hurting. After review by doctors, they found something called "mycobacterium haemophilum" that could be possibly infecting / eating away at her bone. They only had one very unfortunate solution for this to prevent it spreading to the rest of her body. I have a few questions. I know you are not supposed to give medical advice -- so I won't be asking for medical advice. If she would look to help to fix this dis - ease in her body naturally, what do you think the best solutions would be to start? I am trying to get some kind of a Naturopathic doctor to start working with her. Looking for any possible guidance though you may have. Wondering if this happened because of all the antibiotics she was pumped (7+ kinds) to keep the other infections at bay imbalanced her microbiome and body dramatically. She has also had an autoimmune disease for most of her life in which she has been on a strong steroid for (15+ years). Thank you so much for your input.. really appreciate your time on this.

Joanna: Hi Dr Cabral Could you please explain how someone can have an issue with sulphur detoxification and why they get symptoms with foods high in sulphur? What is the underlying cause of this? How do you go about Correcting this? Does this have a correlation with sibo? Plus what is hydrogen sulfide bacteria and how does occur? Many thanks for your help

Charonne: Hi doctor Cabral, I hope you're doing great! I was wondering if you could maybe give me some advice on the following: I (42 y.o. F) always have cold hands and feet - especially during the winter. In those cold months, my fingers will often swell up and look inflamed from the cold. I know that it has to do with my low thyroid and a very low blood pressure. I'm working on this with my health practitioner, but it’s going slowly, so I would really love to know if you know of any great natural remedies to get and keep my hands and feet warm. Thanks so much in advance for your answer, and for everything you do! Especially for creating the CBO protocol! I’m almost finished with it, and my digestion has never been better! :) Charonne

Anonymous: Hi Doc, Thanks for everything! (I know this is a family show so I will try to phrase my question in the right way. Choose the best alternative for your preferences.) Alternative 1. Are there any underlying root cause to sexual fetish’m? Alternative 2. Are there any underlying root cause to why some people have a “fruitful desire” in which gratification is linked to an abnormal degree to a particular object, item of clothing, part of the body, etc? TIA!

Elizabeth: How do you know what your exact body type is? As well as what is better to do to lose weight carb cycling or macroing? I've put on 40lbs , 54 yrs metabolism is shot :(

Laura: Hello! I'm a 27 year old Vata. My at-home saliva test showed low cortisol in the AM and higher than optimal at night. I know this is adrenal fatigue and I've listened to all of your shows on this. I feel exhausted in the morning but still anxious so I chose not to go for adrenal energy support. I already do the daily foundational protocol level 3 with magnesium before bed and zinc at dinner time. I've done the CBO & CBO finisher and do my seasonal detoxes as well. Any recommendations for raising my cortisol levels in the morning naturally? I already bought the light box but not sure what else to do as I really feel very tired in the morning (and caffeine worsens my anxiety). Sleep is good, 7-7.30h of sleep every night with 90 mins of REM and 2h of Deep.

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: 

Maria: Hey! Thank you so much for taking the time to answer our community’s questions :) I’m a Vata body type 29 year old woman currently working on healing my adrenal fatigue. I have elevated levels of cortisol in the PM and low cortisol in the AM. Unfortunately, I don’t do very well with adrenal soothe due to histamines. I’ve tried it several times but it just doesn’t agree with me. Any other alternative that you recommend? I can’t take adrenal support in the morning because I already suffer from anxiety (funny given that my AM cortisol is low). Sleep is good, I track it with my Oura ring and take magnesium, DNS, omega 3, daily probiotic & vitamin D everyday.

Maria: Sorry me again! I forgot to mention that I decided to take a break from heavy lifting and just stick to 10k steps every day and Workout 3x a week with resistance bands only. BMI 21 & 15% body fat percentage. I was doing a lot of sauna but I read that it might not be the best right now as it can be a stressor to my body. What are your thoughts? My workouts are not as intense so I don’t really sweat. Sauna is the only option I have…After running the hormones test with your team, all of my hormones are also on the lower side (including estrogen). So I don’t want to push my body too hard.

Jenna: Do you think that drinking pomegranate juice has more benefits or more downsides? I know drinking any juice without the fiber of the fruit will spike blood sugar, but I also know pomegranate is great for antioxidants. Would you recommend drinking this? (maybe in small amounts?)

Darren: Hey Dr Cabral. Wishing you, your family and Equi Life team all the best in the new year. By the time you get this it'd likely be finished but this question is for future reference. I got the Equi Life Activated B Complex, Activated Multivitamin and DNS recently. I looked at the daily value percentages and was wondering if it was possible to take 1 capsule instead of 2 suggested for the B Complex and 2 instead of 4 capsules suggested for the activated multivitamin. I'm trying to stay healthy and do what's right while still keeping budget but I'd do what's right if I actually have to do the suggested number. Also with regard to the DNS, is there any reason why it has added sugar in the ingredients? Is it for a particular reason or merely for taste?

Christina: Are infrared sauna and proteolytic enzymes (taken on an empty stomach) safe when you have breast implants? Thank you for the wonderful information provided in your podcasts.

Christina: When I exercise or do a physical activity requiring more oxygen, I have to yawn to bring in the oxygen that I need. Otherwise, I feel like I am not getting enough oxygen. Is this normal? Thank you for all your help and advice.

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!
