I think many of us too often wait and hope for good things to come into our life rather than thinking about all the small things we can do to cultivate that happiness we all search for…

 

Through my research and working with hundreds of thousands of people I have seen some very impressive turnarounds, especially in terms of mental health that all begin with first changing the mindset…

 

On today’s #CabralConcept 2306 I’d like to share with you 10 ways to attract more good and positivity into your life – enjoy the show and let me know which one was your favorite in the comments below!

May 29, 2022

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…

 

Jessica: Hi! I'm a 31 yo female. Overall healthy. I developed a rash when I was about 19 that has been biopsied multiple times. Initial few showed generalized inflammation but nothing specific. The most recent was concerning for cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. The physician I saw still decided to label it "parapsoriasis," because "he didn't want to put lymphoma in my chart." Labs have always normal and show no blood involvement. Treatment options are topical steroids (which keep it at bay but have never cleared it completely) and light therapy (which I never had time to commit to 3x per week with work, so I try to get sunlight on my trunk as often as possible). There's not much data I can find from a FM perspective - maybe some data to show clustering of cases which could indicate an environmental trigger. Any suggestions on what the root cause of this could be and options for FM treatments?

 

Douglas: Hi there! Love all the knowledge you share and I have learned so much from the labs and your podcasts. Thank you for the noble mission you are on. Your life’s work is truly inspiring. For the last eight months I have been taking your DNS and Crisp Apple Green supplements. Both are outstanding. So I have a brain injury, 6-7 concussion in my life, low elastase with my pancreas, am 6’5” and 230 pounds. Based on the labs, Ive done a mold detox and cleanse protocol and am feeling like I have more energy. Currently am doing the Healing Gut protocol. For the longest time (20 years) I have been a light weight when drinking any kind of alcohol. I drink maybe a glass of wine or cocktail once a month at most. I instantly feel sleepy when I have a glass. I cant even drink a whole glass sometime as i have the sensation its after midnight and I should be asleep. I do not intend to want to drink more should I fix this, I just want to know in case there is something unhealthy with my body such as missing a key enzyme. What are your thoughts? Thanks! Douglas

 

Angie: Hello Dr. Cabral! Thank you for all you do, you are truly inspiring! I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism after the birth of my son (the same day I gave birth). I had a miscarriage 3 1/2 years later and was diagnosed with essential thrombocythemia. It's an uncommon disorder with no cure according to my hematologist. I do not have the JAK2 gene mutation but I do have a “less severe” gene mutation that somehow became activated. I did not always have these disorders and was curious if you could make any recommendations on how I can bring my body back into balance for these conditions. I’ve been seeing a naturopath since I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and I recently asked her about leaky gut and if there were tests we could run but she wasn’t interested in running tests (told me to do a low fodmap diet instead). I’m meeting with a Functional doctor next week and hopefully she will be more open to running tests. In the past I had a food sensitivity test and I’m sensitive to a huge list of foods (top foods are wheat and eggs). I had a hormone test a few years back as well and my progesterone is low and my testosterone is barely registering. Lately I’ve been very bloated and gassy even when following the low fodmap food list. Thanks so much!! Angie

 

Thomas: Hey Dr Cabral! I’ve been listening to your podcasts for about 4 years and share as much of this knowledge as I can remember with others. My wife in particular has experienced more balanced hormones and a better sense of awareness all from your teachings. You are the a saviour and we can’t thank you enough. One mystery that I can’t seem to pinpoint is her coughing after eating (any meal, spicy, sweet, or salty). Even if it’s just cooked vegetables with no oil and very light seasoning. Could eating really cause coughing or do you think it’s just a very broad food allergy?

 

Justin: I’ve been taking 1 teaspoon of baking soda mixed in 4 to 5 ounces of water almost nightly for the past year. I had heard it keeps you from having to get up frequently to urinate, which has been an issue for me. I also heard that it was good for your kidneys. Sometimes it seems like it helped with frequent urination, and other times not. However I recently heard that frequent consumption of baking soda can neutralize stomach acids, causing a host of problems. What are the benefits of baking soda, and what would be the best dosage for the average person?

 

Patti: Thank you for significantly helping both myself & my son to live a better life & your team for being so responsive, & helpful. I just listened to the podcast where you answered a question on a hip replacement. What are your thoughts on cortizone shots for pain? Also, antibiotics are recommended for dental work after a joint replacement. What are alternatives? 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!

May 28, 2022

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: 

 

Nicole: Hi Dr. C! I have an Oura ring and get quite a lot of deep sleep, far above the average. Most nights I get over 3 hours of deep and it averages about 40% + of my sleep. I get normal amounts of rem, but was curious why I would get so much deep sleep. I am active and go to sleep around 9:30 most nights. Is there any negative reasons as to why my body would need so much deep sleep, or is it just more of a good thing? Thank you!!

 

Alicja: Dr. Cabral, I love your podcast and your wisdom, my question is about sauna. If you could have sauna in your house, would you choose infrared sauna or regular dry sauna? I'm asking because I just bought a house and will make some changes to it. I want to add a sauna and I'm not sure if IFR sauna would be better than regular dry sauna. Thanks in advance for your answer.

 

Tina: It’s 4 AM and I’m wide awake! I went to bed around 9:30 PM and between then and now I literally woke up about 8 different times. I 53 years old and I did the big five labs plus the gut and parasite test. My hormones are low, I did the 14 day functional detox, a liver and gallbladder flush, and currently I am five weeks into the CBO protocol. I’m also six weeks into the protocol that my IHP level two gave me to follow. I’m doing adrenal soothe, adrenal energy, DHEA, The deep sleep protocol, magnesium, etc., I’m following my protocols and I’m having very little to no relief. I did two different parasite cleanses. I did the mold test and I have zero mold in my body. I don’t know what’s going on with me. I just need to sleep! I am unplugging two hours before sleep. I’m doing deep breathing and meditation almost daily. I’m doing theta healing with a health practitioner to calm my sympathetic nervous system because my cortisol levels are all messed up. My cortisol is at its high right before I go to sleep at night and in the morning it’s very low.I’m lost at this point and I don’t know what to do. Of course I will keep going with my protocols and after 12 weeks I’m supposed to test my hormones again to see where my levels are. I just don’t understand why I wake up at least 10 times a night.

 

Amy: After having C VIRUS 8 months ago, I noticed my underarm odor got a very strong "onion" smell. Previously, I had very light, to no, body odor. I haven't changed anything in my diet (I don't eat a ton of onions or garlic) or supplements. What could be causing this? I'm a healthy, 38 yr old female. Thanks!

 

Jo: Hello Dr. Cabral, My 12 year old daughter recently had blood test done and showed her DHEA elevated. It was 200 above their normal range and her prolactin was 2 above average range. She also has a noticeable mustache and hair on the upper and lower parts of her back (thin but noticeable). She started her cycle at 9 and still has irregular cycles. Curious as to what you would recommend for this. Can not get into an endocrinologist until July. Thank you.

 

Briana: Hi Dr. Cabral! I searched the podcast archive for fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) and found no results on the topic. Very interested to hear your thoughts/opinion on the procedure. Specifically in regards to how it may (or may not) benefit individuals with autism spectrum disorder. Thank you!!

There's been some really interesting research on the effects of heat and cold and their ability to burn body fat - or more appropriately defined as boosting metabolism.

 

What probably most interesting is that in terms of cold therapy we can see from the research studies that it has the propensity to actually alter the state of the fat tissue itself…:cold_face:

 

Really fascinating science and on today’s #CabralConcept 2301 I'd like to share with you the 3 reasons cold exposure increases fat burning - Enjoy the show and let me know if you've ever tried cold therapy!

As trans-resveratrol, PQQ, astragalus, and NMN continue to gain in popularity it’s time to explore which form of vitamin B3 is best when it comes to the “anti-aging molecule.”

 

There are 3 forms of niacin (B3) that have been clinically studied to improve everything from eyesight to mitochondrial energy to longevity gene expression…

 

However, with multiple forms on the market how do you know which one (NMN vs. NR vs NAD) is best to take?

 

Tune into today’s #CabralConcept 2300 to find out the unbiased answer and why - Enjoy the show and let me know your thoughts in the comments!

Brian Tracy is one of the greatest self-improvement mentors to ever live and I love being able to share his work with you…

 

I think Brian is best known for taking complex “to-do lists” and simplifying them to get rid of what is not needed and focus on the crucial couple of items that will truly move the needle in your life…

 

That’s why on today’s #CabralConcept 2299 I’d like to share with you the simple 5-step goal achievement plan adapted from Brian Tracy - 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…

 

Stephanie: Hi Dr. Cabral! I am a night shift nurse and I am having a tough time with timing my meals/food during the nights i’m working. I am trying be as healthy as I can working night shift (7p-7a). I know the number one best thing for me to do for my health would be to switch to day shift but unfortunately with the staffing shortage at the hospital I am unable to switch as of now and need to stay on nights. I work 3 nights of 12hr shifts a week. Would you be able to recommend the best meal timing for the nights i’m working? I have listened to your podcasts about meal timing for a normal sleep cycle with being awake during the day which I follow on my days off! :) Thank you so much! -Stephanie, a fellow New Englander

 

Anita: Thank you for your podcasts and all you do to promote health and wellness. I appreciate you. I am not able to tolerate any of supplements or even the detox protocol. I do ok for one or two days and then I am terribly sick and cannot even tolerate hardly any foods. I have CYP2C19-2 copies of variant. Overall functional effect- no enzyme function (drugs less effective, increased chance side effects, and unable to clear from liver- blood thinners, PPIs, anti fungals, anti seizure drugs, SSRI'S, and TCAs. I also have SLCO1B1- one copy. Predicted decreased function. Overall functional effect- Decreased protein function. One copy of Hemochromatosis HFE variant also, may not increase risk. My question is: is there an enzyme I can take something I can do to reverse the effects of these genes? Thank you so much!

 

Erica: How does daylight savings time affect our biological processes and rhythms?

 

Erica: Would you ever consider doing an episode that sums up all the recommendations that you would make specifically for professional athletes and how this differs from the average client? For example, through trial and error I feel that my body tends to need more vitamin C, zinc, and magnesium; I've also found ashwaganda to help, as well as higher protein, and I also tend to feel best after around 9 hours of sleep even though my genotype is kapha-pitta (for reference, I'm a professional boxer so there's around 2.5-3 hours of training and about another 1 of walking every day, so it's high demand). I'm a newbie to the podcast but I wanted to thank you because it's already become a constant part of my routine to listen to every morning, which is really comforting and helpful so I really appreciate you putting all the time and effort into doing these episodes and connecting with your audience. Also, I was wondering if you've heard of the hypnotherapist Marisa Peer? You give so many great recommendations, and after listening to a few of your Motivation Monday podcasts (which are some of my favorite), I thought her YouTube videos on mindset and taking control of inner narrative might be something you (or other members of the audience) might enjoy so I wanted to pay it forward :)

 

Terry: My wife thinks I have nocturnal convulsions. She said I have the symptoms as described by Dr. Google. I searched to see if you have ever discussed nocturnal convulsions on your podcast and did find any hits. If that is what I have, what can be done? I have run the big 5 labs and I have a good idea of my mineral deficiencies that I am working on improving. The symptoms seems to have gotten worse since I have been walking 10,000+ steps per day.

 

Jamie: Thank you again for everything that you do and your help to help us all be a little better every day. Really appreciate you and your team. We have a bit of a quandary at home as we have a toddler aged just over 2.5 years and a new baby around 16 weeks old. Whilst my wife and i do not have any dairy in the house (i've largely fixed my gut and know i have a sensitivity and she is very much on baord and will do big 5 later this year). EVery medical practicioner is pushing dairy, her nursery has dairy every day. She is exposed to some and we are ok with it as we control what we can at home but there is a worry about her receiving enough calcium for her growth. What specifically would you suggest food / drink wise if you were to cut dairy completely to ensure your kids had enough calcium when growing? Also as an extra add on question does this change as they get older...?thank you again

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: Hi Dr Cabral! I do the Daily Foundational Protocol Level 2 & immunity protocol. I do have the HSVII. However, I had the C-virus in January. I was sick for half a day, major head pain and then tired but mostly recovered by the next day. 1 week after I lost taste/smell for 5 days. A week after that, I started getting a herpes like rash on one of my fingers. It took a few days to heal. A week later, it resurfaced. I kept an infrared light on it consistently and it healed in a couple days. A week later, it resurfaced. What do I do? I have heard that HSV2 can hide behind heavy metals/Parasite, but I've done the HM & Parasite protocols. Help me out :) Thank you so much!

 

Erin: Muscle knots...i always seem to have them in my lower neck/shoulder area, especially on my right side. Weight workouts make them even worse. What’s the reason for this and what can I do to correct this? Thanks so very much.

 

Ernestine: Hello, Is there a home water softener system that you recommend?

 

Anonymous: Hi Dr Cabral, i have written in before for low wbc.. a quick summary.. i am an anxious perso & an over thinker. A very hard trait to disconnect from for me but i am working on it. I take adrenal soothe, magnesium in the morning, vit d vit c , DNS shake.. in suggestion to my question before you had question i had asked about my low wbc you suggested it could be oxidative stress, which made total sense to me & still does.. but I just recently had some blood work done, the dr was helping me try to dig a little deeper as to why this might be happening as its always on my mind. It turns out i tested positive or its showing up in my bloodwork for EBV &cytomegalovirus. Honestly im shocked & pretty disheartened. I had my cbc drawn and it had actually went up a little & i thought maybe i was doing something right & the same draw as the virus results it had gone significantly down. Im quite frankly scared this is going to lead me down a sad path and i dont know my next move. My cortisol was also high & she said im in adrenal burnout. I listened to a previous podcast of yours (episode 760) i guess I'm wondering if there is anything else i can do or whats your best suggestion for me. Really just feeling kind of helpless. Appreciate any direction from the bottom of my heart, thank you.

 

Steven: Hi! If calcium levels are high in the blood, would you assume that they would appear higher than magnesium in a hair tissue test? And if they're low in the blood, would they appear lower than magnesium? Or is the calcium tested in the hair tissue test different to the one in serum?

 

Susan: Hi- I’m a psychotherapist who works with many women with chronic gastrointestinal issues due to severe eating disorders and long-term restrictive behaviors around food. When trying to introduce fish for instance- they wake up smelling like fish and it seems to seep from their pores. Other “re feeding” and re introducing “fear foods” leads to chronic bloating, pain, gas, constipation and diarrhea. Due to the behavioral triggering aspect, these clients cannot do any kind of fasting or elimination protocol. And supplements can increase symptoms. Most gastro and even ED dietitians and naturopaths don’t seem to have any lasting answers for healing. I really feel for these clients and want to be able to offer suggestions that might actually help. They are often so frustrated and hopeless- and the symptoms can lead to isolation which leaves them at risk for relapse. Any info and help you have would be much appreciated! Thanks for all you do

One of the reasons why I enjoy talking about helping people achieve the ideal body for them is to give them hope that there is another way…

 

We’re constantly bombarded in the media about weight loss more than any other health-based topic and unfortunately, it’s presented in more of a negative light…

 

My goal is to share with people that it’s really about rebalancing your body, your hormones, and your health and as a result of that you will automatically get to your best bodyweight…

 

Tune in to today’s Cabral Concept #2294 to go deeper on the weight loss topic of how the epigenetics of weight gain affect aging as well - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

Although I highly recommend looking at your gut imbalances, food sensitivities, and hormone levels if you’re struggling with acne, I also wanted to share some interesting research on vitamin deficiencies as a root cause…

 

It turns out that on top of vitamin C, zinc, and other nutrients, your skin also needs specific B-vitamins in order to balance the bacteria and skin biome…

 

For all of the details on how acne can be eliminated with these vitamins tune into today’s #CabralConcept 2293 - 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…

 

Nina: Hello Dr. Cabral, first I’d just like to thank you for everything that you do and share with this community. You have helped so many people with your knowledge and passion to help others. I’m a 36 year old female, and I have recently recovered from Candida overgrowth, blastocystis, vitamin/mineral deficiencies, a few other gut issues. I recently took a saliva based hormone test and has very low levels of estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone. My DHEAS were on the very low end of normal and my cortisol levels were in the normal range. Could this be a case of my body still recovering/catching up? What do you recommend to rebalance my hormones? Thank you again for all that you do!

 

Lori: Hi Dr. Cabral, I am currently enrolled in your IHP 2 program (just certified in Level 1) - I recently was discussing one of your podcasts with a ND re: Covid & the gut, & she mentioned she is seeing alot of Pancreatitis in patients after Covid also. Wondering if this is something you have encountered, & if you can speak on this topic in one of your podcasts. Please advise ~ Sincerely, Lori 

 

Kathrin: Dear Dr.Cabral I have Vitilligo and there is no cure . It really depress me . Do you have any suggestions .I try to be Gluten , no Dairy ,Eggs and low carb low fat . But nothing help .Only direct Sun exposure in the Summer. I feel helpless. Thanks for your time

 

Jillian: Hi Dr. Cabral, This may seem random but, I’m wondering if you have any knowledge on sandbox health safety for children. I’ve been debating on getting one for my toddler and have heard some people mention they can be unsanitary and harbor parasites. We would keep it covered when not in use. Also I’ve heard some people use diatomaceous earth but have also heard it could be harmful? What are your thoughts?

 

Barbie: Hello. I am in desperate need for Dr. Cabral to help me! He seems so knowledgeable and so nice. I have spent thousands of dollars on trying to get better and figure out what the “cause” is to my health issues and NOBODY, not even the naturopaths I have seen can find it. My prayer to God is to PLEASE, can I somehow talk to Dr. Cabral? Can he PLEASE help me?

 

Summer: Hey Doc! I have gut disbiosis, possibly SIBO, and leaky gut, have gotten rid of HPylori, and now mid CBO protocol. I have been doing coffee enemas on and off for a few years with a clean organic coffee. Larry I try to do a round once a week for the extra liver support. I always feel great after, but more often than not, a few hours to half a day later, I’ll experience terrible bloating. It feels like a huge gas bubble or something that won’t move. I usually end up doing another enema to move it through. I usually do two rounds of about 6-8 cups distilled water then about 4 cups of coffee. I started using less water thinking I was just using too much and not being able to move it all back out, but it’s still causing problems most times. Any idea what might be causing the bloating and discomfort? Thanks for everything!!

 

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: Hi and thank you so much for everything you do and all your time. My question is this. Back in October of 2020 I had my gallbladder removed. Prior to having my gallbladder removed I had amazing bowel movements sorry for the tmi. I also never had a uti. I'm 46 by the way. After I had my gallbladder removed I started to experience that my bowel movements were starting to slow down. Then I had my first UTI in December of 2020. Then I started to develop adult acne little white pimples all over my face my neck my scalp even my ears. Then my bowel movement started to slow down even more. And I got another UTI in April of 2021. My bowel movements continue to slow down. I try to eat ery healthy I eat healthier than most people. And am very intentional with my health. And I try to do all the right things and take all the right supplements. But I am consistently seeing that my constipation has gotten worse. And my acne has gotten worse. And I have gotten another UTI recently in the month of february. Most recently I also noticed that I get full faster and I fell like I'm so stuffed I also have more gas and burping. What would you recommend.

 

Rebekah: Hello Dr. Cabral. I am 39 years old and over the past year I have been having a cluster of symptoms. GERD, headache, vertigo, off balance, fatigue, muscle spasms, numbness and tingling in my hands, feet, tongue, lips. I had an MRI that showed non-specific white matter changes and was referred to a neurologist. An EMG was done but I have not gotten results. I am not a fan of the neurologist I was referred to and am looking for a more holistic approach to my symptoms. I suspected I was having mold toxicity. We have moved out of our home and into a brand new house but my symptoms have not gone away. I changed my diet by eliminating dairy, gluten and going organic.I did have vitamin b12 checked and it was normal. I am currently on your CBO protocol. Any advice on things I should be testing for or foods to eliminate? This is very frustrating and I wish I could feel normal again and get to the bottom of this. I am so glad I found your podcast and thank you for all that you do.

 

Alicja: Hi Dr. Cabral, First I quickly want to say that I love your podcast and wish I discovered it sooner. Trying to catch up with all older episodes since I learn so much from you. Thank you for all you do. My question is about thyroid. I recently found out I have hypothyroidism and Hashimoto. I'm against taking hormones. How can I rebalance my thyroid naturally? I have a naturopathic doctor who mentioned to me LDN (low dose naltrexone) that for some people can reverse autoimmune conditions. Any thoughts on LDN? Is it worth trying or would you recommend other, more natural approach? (I'm also dealing with GI issues I'm addressing and I read that LDN may also be helpful to my gut issues)

 

Gordon: Hello Dr Cabral, my issue is what seems to be a chronic problem with lightheadedness/dizziness. Has been going on for a year plus, happens every day now, sometimes several times a day. I’ve had MRI’s, thorough eye exams (thought to be related to ocular migraines) and ear exams - all testing returned within “normal” limits. I am in my early 70’s, take no medications, exercise regularly, maintain a healthy diet. Typically have a low heart rate and low blood pressure. Any ideas as to cause, next steps? Any help is appreciated. Thanks for all you do!

 

Adam: Dr. Cabral, Many thanks for all that you do. You have truly been a blessing! My questions are related to anti-aging and Equilife's new Longevity Line, which I am very excited about! What is your current anti-aging supplement protocol? Do you take cell boost and inflamma soothe? If so what dosage? Are there any other anti-aging supplements that you use outside of equilife? On episode 1507 you mention that you have been taking nicotinamide riboside (NR) for three years but it was not included in cell boost. Instead nicotinamide mononucleutide (NMN) was included. Do you prefer NMN over NR? Longtime client, Adam

Most people are not aware that there are simple at-home lab tests that you can run that will definitively show you what deficiencies you may have or toxicities you may be holding onto…

 

One of those lesser-known labs is called the Environmental Toxicity Test which looks at over 170 different environmental toxins that are the most common to be exposed to…

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2288 We are going to go through a real-world case study on how environmental toxins infiltrate our bodies and what we can do about it - Enjoy the show and let me know if you have any questions!

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been trying to share information about why people can’t seem to lose weight by just reducing calories alone…

 

One of those reasons is due to the metabolic hormones that can become dysregulated when your sleep is not optimized…

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2287 I’d like to share the main reasons why poor sleep causes weight gain and what you can do about it - Enjoy the show and let me know if you have any questions!

A whole “new” field of non-meditative activities is starting to become mainstream and I wanted to make sure you knew about them…

 

They are helping to revolutionize the relaxation and rejuvenation field by turning down the brain wave activity which can stress us out…

 

This new field of study is being referred to as “non sleep deep rest” (NSDR) and it includes more than just meditation…

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2286 I’d like to share with you how 10-minutes of NSDR is helping people rejuvenate their bodies and minds - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

May 8, 2022

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…

 

Jennifer: Hi Dr. Cabral! I got "the virus" in March 2021 and again in January 2022. I am a healthy 44 woman. For some reason each time the virus affected my heart rate. It gives me the feeling like my heart is beating very fast and makes me feel anxious or gives me a feeling like I drank too much coffee (when I only drink 1 cup a day). Last year I had my heart checked and everything was normal. It went away after I received the v last year but I really don't want to get a b shot this year. Any other ways to stop my heart from beating so fast? My vitamin A and C levels are low, B levels are high. Blood pressure is sometimes low but usually around 100 over 70. Thank you for your help. I love listening to your podcasts.

 

Allen: Hello Dr. Cabral, I have done the HTMA lab in the past. I did have some aluminum levels and vitamin deficiencies  in my hair samples. I have since taken supplements to fix those vitamin deficiencies.  I recognize now that I should have done a heavy metals detox right away, however I was in the middle of trying to conceive and did not wish to interrupt that and I know it's not safe to do while trying to conceive. So I never completed a heavy metals detox. I eat a balanced diet, I'm a healthy weight,  I complete a few liver detoxes each year, I workout 4-5 days a week with a mix of sauna, weights, and cardio, I use the sauna sometimes as well. I was wondering, aren't I naturally detoxing heavy metals and other toxins from my body very regularly while sweating and eating foods that support the natural detox process? I know that the supplements in the heavy metal detox assist with the detoxification process, but I'm wondering how much I am naturally able to detox on my own simply by living a healthy lifestyle. I know the research supports that the supplements that come with the heavy metal detox work. Are there other ways to remove heavy metal toxins? Thank you for answering my questions!

 

Kelly: Hello Dr. Cabral! Thank you so much for your podcast and book. You are a true blessing to people like myself seeking optimum wellness and disease prevention! I am a relatively healthy 35 year old female with a have a strange question- My husband and I had Cin October. Prior to our infection with C, I had suffered for about three years with unexplained shortness of breath. I tried endlessly to get to the bottom of what was causing this sudden onset shortness of breath. I did diaphragm exercises, I took iron supplements, I increase my aerobic exercise, I tried adaptogens and stress relieving herbs like lavender, I did counseling and meditation… The shortness of breath came out of the blue in my early 30s and magically disappeared when I fully recovered from C (which took about two week). The only explanation I have is that while I had C I would inhale steam with essential oils like Teatree oil and grapefruit seed extract and another germ fighting blend. I’m curious about your thoughts on whether my long term shortness of breath could have been attributed to some bacteria or fungus in my lungs that was inadvertently wiped out as I treated my C symptoms with gentle steam inhalation with essential oils. I am baffled at how this chronic condition could vanish!

 

Oren: Hi, I'm a 20 years old female. I can't remember a time in my life when I wasn't chubby. I'm not immensely overweight, I weigh about 70kg at 1.71m. I've done strict keto for months, combined with omad/intermittent fasting a few times a week, and I also train BJJ 4 times a week. Now starting carnivore. I eat about 1300-1700 calories a day, depending on my hunger. My body won't respond to any of that except for helping with bloating. Measurements and compositions stayed the same for a year of trying these things and I don't really know what to do anymore. I took the body ype quite, and my answers were almost dispersed equally between the different body types, with a small favor for the Vatta and Pitta types, except for the fact that I gain weight easily and can't seem to lose it from my thighs and belly no matter what I do. I'm kinda desperate so I'd love some help, thank you :)

 

Anonymous: Hi dr. Cabral! Hope you are doing well and hope you can help point me in the direction TO get well :)! I experience chronic runny nose upon waking in the morning or after laying down for a long period of time. It stops running a couple hours after being awake and sometimes comes back in the evening. I also have extreme sugar (mainly chocolate) cravings, nocturia, mood swings, acne (mainly around jaw/chin) and foul gas (no bloating). My candida metabolic vitamins test showed no microbial overgrowth, below the mean for all neurotransmitter metabolites and slightly elevated orotic acid. If I have no bacterial overgrowth where is the gas coming from? And why won't my nose stop running (lol)! Do I need to run additional FM labs to figure this out? Thank you in advance for all your advice & recommendations!!!

 

Summer: Hey Doc! On day 14 of a 21 day detox and day 14 of CBO as well. 32 year old female hypothyroidism and gut disbiosis confirmed with testing.I have actually lost some stubborn lbs that I haven’t been able to budge in years so grateful for that! I’m concerned that it’s because I’m starving… been eating clean for 5-6 years. I can’t tolerate any of the plant proteins so have had to add salmon and a little wild game into my lunches. I used to survive on mainly fats especially nuts and eggs. I’m really struggling to get over 1,000 calories and hit my macros. Really missing my hearty breakfast. Worried about causing further damage to my thyroid and adrenals. I seem to now be intolerant of my normal exercise as well. Exercise in the morning is out of the question. My stomach is ALWAYS gurgling (not hunger pains) just noisy. Terrible gas and bloating for the last 9 days. I think that may be due to all the extra veggies I’ve added. I cook everything to help digestion, I use Canadian bitters before meals, chewing everything to a liquid, gut massage, and ginger and peppermint teas. Is my digestion actually getting worse? Should I just power through?That’s what I’m doing, but would like to hear your thoughts even if it’s 7 weeks out! Support group had some suggestions but not satisfactory. thx!

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: 

 

Shirleyta: I have suffered for BMS for 1.5 years.. what should I do, Doctor? What kind of specific Doctor do I need . Thank you for your kind attention.

 

Fiona: Scans show fatty liver but I don't consume any alcohol, my diet is organic and plant-based with no processed foods. How is this possible?

 

Anonymous: Hi there! Firstly, thank you for all the knowledge and wisdom you share! I have been working on healing my gut for about 3 months now. I have noticed some changes like more energy, less cravings, better sleep. However, I am still really struggling with my skin. My skin periodically gets this sort of rash that looks like sebaceous filaments and water retention. I know sebaceous filaments are natural but they are not always this prominent. Are there foods that cause this? Also, I have noticed that i have a sensitivity to lectins and a lot of the protein sources on the Dr. Cabral detox are a bit high in lectins(beans, legumes, chia seeds). I listened to your podcast on eliminating them for a while if one is sensitive and then reintroducing them later on. How can I modify the detox so that I still get enough protein while also avoiding lectins? Thank you so much in advance!

 

Moriah: I was just listening to your podcast and you said something word for word what I said to myself a year ago… “I won’t take antibiotics unless I’m dying” Last year, antibiotics caused me to catch a c diff infection and I’ve never been so sick, the antibiotics they gave me to cure the c diff, didn’t even work and I got a second infection, I literally felt like I could have died. A local naturopath finally helped me heal my gut and repair my issues. Just wanted to say thank you for speaking out about the danger of unnecessary use of antibiotics

 

Lisa: Is it ok to use cbd oil while pregnant? I have been using cbd oil for 2-3 years to help me sleep at night and I can’t sleep well without it. Thoughts on taking it during pregnancy ?

 

Anonymous: Hi. I have been listening to your podcast for a while and it has really been helping a lot with my health issues. In numerous podcast episodes, you have mentioned that keto and long intermittent fasting isn't good for female hormones. I have extreme insulin resistance and I have had it for years. I have tried keto with vegetables for about 3 weeks now along with intermittent fasting of 16 hours in order to try to reduce my insulin resistance, hair loss at temples, and skin rash. However, i seem to be gaining more weight around the belly even though I have not been consuming any carbs other than low glycemic vegetables. What could be causing this? I thought that belly fat especially love handles were caused by high insulin? Also, what method would you suggest for healing extreme insulin resistance for a female? Thank you so much in advance!
