Research shows us that there is a link between the APOe4 blood type and Alzheimer's, cardiovascular disease, and other inflammatory conditions…

 

Having this blood type may leave you more susceptible to Alzheimer's but it does not determine your destiny.

 

Knowledge is power and understanding that you are genetically predisposed can help you take action and create positive lifestyle changes that can greatly reduce your risk.

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2342 I want to share with you more information on the link between the APOe4 blood type and Alzheimer's and what you can do if you are a carrier– Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

One small decision over the course of the day may not seem like very much…

 

However, each one of those small decisions begins to accumulate over time…

 

If you continue to make the same choices you are making today, will you be where you want to be in 5 years?

 

If your actions and habits are not leading you on the path to your goal, how can you change them and create daily habits that will?

 

On today’s #CabralConcept 2341 I want to share with you how volume-based thinking can help you change the course of your actions, develop new habits and improve in any area of your life – 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…

 

Khadijah: Hi! I have a few questions about POTS. Basically, last year my doctor prescribed me four different birth controls within five months since I was getting side effects, and these hormonal changes triggered PCOS. I broke out I. Terrible acne and my hair started falling out s my dermatologist prescribed spirolactone. When I was on this medication I was passing out, had terrible joint pain, and fainting. I was bed ridden for weeks my side effects were so bad. I went off out it realizing it was the medication, but it also caused lasting side effects including reactive hypoglycemia and POTs. I’ve changed my diet from vegan to keto and that’s helped with the hypoglycemia, but my heart is still super irregular and I’ll start sweating, getting incredibly anxious and have a very fast or very low heart rate. Also I just feel so tired and my hands and feet get cold and numb. How do I heal this? I want to exercise and go out without feeling awful, and drink alcohol and coffee without feeling like a may have a heart attack.

 

Alicja (Ah-leets-yah): Hi Dr. Cabral My question today is about ammonia levels. I run Candida, Metabolic and Vitamins Test and it showed I have a very high levels on Ammonia Excess (Orotic) I believe that also that high ammonia contributes to my bed sleep at night. How can I get rid of that ammonia? I once red that taking L-ornithine helps. What are your thoughts on that? Thank you so much for your answer. I appreciate your help and wish you and wonderful day.

 

Gregg: Hi Dr. Cabral - love the pod and the help you motivation you provide daily! Question: what are your thoughts on lectins and their effect on gut health? Others in the healthcare space have suggested that foods like beans, bell peppers and tomatoes can contribute to leaky gut due to their lectins creating microscopic tears in the intestinal wall. Are these valid concerns? Is there research to back this up? thanks again! gregg in seattle.

 

Komal: Hi I did my 21 day detox. Can I keep doing another round or is there a limit

 

Bridget: My friends 12 year old son was born with no eyebrows. He does have a few hairs that are blonde but you can't really see them unless you look hard. He has brown hair otherwise. Do you know what could cause this? As he gets older, the kids at school get meaner. He does have allergies to peanuts, animals and is a bit overweight. Other than that he seems like a healthy kid. Thanks so much for all of your hard work helping the community.

 

Summer: Hi doc! I’m over halfway through the CBO protocol now, and I’m noticing a huge increase in plaque and calculus build up on my teeth. Ever since I cleaned up my diet about 5 or 6 years ago, I noticed I would barely build up any plaque and never built up calculus. I couldn’t believe how clean my teeth always felt and always got comments from the my dentist and hygienist. But now all of a sudden after starting this protocol, I always have ‘fuzzy’ teeth and it drives me crazy! I was a dental assistant for 7 years and still work in the dental field. Do you think perhaps this could be a vitamin or mineral imbalance? I’m wondering if I’m getting too much of something. I take 1-2 scoops of DNS daily alongside my other supplements that I’ve always taken. The only supplements that have changed would be adding DNS, switching to EquiLife alkalizing vitamin c, omega 3, and daily thyroid support. I also started taking Hyland’s bio plasma 12 cell salts religiously. I would love to hear your thoughts on this! Thanks for your time!

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 Stephen, hope you are keeping well. I’m an Addison’s disease patient since July 2021 after a long few months trying to get a diagnosis - brain fog, weight loss, anxiety and panic attacks, adrenal crisis and OCD. I’m hearing a lot about different diets for autoimmune diseases and wondering your thoughts on cutting out gluten sugar and dairy to help. Currently taking hydro and fludrocortisone daily. Also in terms of vitamins what should I be taking daily just need some help getting my life back on track. Also I’ve had covid twice which def didn’t help with addisons. Recently came across your podcast on adrenal fatigue and heard you have addisons as well. The thought of being on these heavy meds for life is kind of scary. I had all the symptoms you had and would love your opinion. Thanks Michael

 

Rachel: Hi there, Just wondering if you could do a podcast on your recommendations for children and supplements. I'd like to find out if it's necessary to provide children with Multivitamins and/or what supplements you suggest they take in conjunction with a balanced diet. Thank you.

 

Nicole: Hi Dr. Cabral. I have a question about my ectopic heartbeats. I've been battling chronic fatigue, stress, and gut issues for a few yrs now after having tragedy after tragedy in my family happen. Anyway I did do the oat test and HTMA as well as food sensitivity test and have a plan going forward to heal and seal my gut. However one very mysterious symptom I've been having ( out of a few actually) is that I get ectopic heartbeats all the time! Not just a few but hundreds a day. I did a heart ultrasound as well as 24 hr heart monitor and they found nearly 2500 pvc and pacs in a 24 hour period. These tend to happen during early morning and in the late afternoon into the evenings. They have gone away for weeks at a time entirely only to return once again for weeks- months. My cardiologist says they are benign and that its just anxiety. Wjat are your thoughts. I don't feel like I'm an anxious person although I do know with my ongoing health challenges and emotional stresses in the past this could have played a role to some degree. My thyroid panel is optimal at 30mg armour thyroid no no more antibodies present. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

 

Sarah: Is it possible to completely get rid of thyroid antibodies? Mine has hovered around 300 for years and deciding if damage is done and should just go on thyroid med instead of chasing full reversal! Thankful for people like you putting in the time to help the world!

 

Courtney: Hello! Your story resonated with me as my 5 year old daughter has been on a daily 6ml antibiotic the last 2 years for recurring UTI’s due to holding and reflux to the kidneys. Doctors believe she will grow out of it. I’m very concerned that the daily nitrofurantoin is ruining her gut flora and what this will mean for her future health. Even with the daily antibiotic she will have a UTI once every 3 months and will be on a full 10 day course of another antibiotic (keflex or Bactrum). She will be starting biofeedback when she is 6 (October). We give her a daily probiotic: Jarrow YumYum dophilius. What more can we do to help her break this cycle, get her off a daily antibiotic and get her gut health back? Thank you so much! Courtney

 

Rita: Hi! I’ve attempted the CBO protocol twice but can never seem to follow through properly all the way to 12 weeks. The problem is that I own a bakery and am always tasting our products for quality a few times a month, especially when we’re creating new flavors. My bakery business truly brings me and my customers joy and fulfillment, so quitting that is currently not an option. I’ve taken the food sensitivity test and am highly sensitive to gluten, dairy and eggs. I don’t need to have entire servings of our pastries but I’m wondering if this will affect the effectiveness of the CBO protocol during and after the process. I know I desperately need to rebalance my gut but don’t know how to balance this with my livelihood. Please help! Thank you so much.
