Hot and cold therapy has numerous benefits for the body…

 

I think most people shy away from trying them because they think it might be overly complicated or expensive.

 

But reaping the rewards from these modalities can be as easy as turning on your shower.

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2448 I want to go over the benefits of hot & cold contrast showers and how you can implement them into your daily routine – Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

We live in a world of instant gratification…

 

We want things quickly and that includes what we eat as well.

 

The combination of lifestyle factors and processed foods have increased the amount of inflammation in our bodies which can lead to a variety of “dis-ease”.

 

On today’s show I want to go over an important scientific study about inflammatory foods and discuss how intermittent fasting can play a role in blunting these effects and additional ways you can reduce your inflammatory load. 

 

Join me on today’s #CabralConcept 2447 where I go over this research and dive into what the most inflammatory foods are and why fasting helps – 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…

 

Callie: Hi Dr. Cabral, I am looking for answers for my 3 year old daughter who was diagnosed with Loose Anagen Syndrome. Ever since she was a baby, she loses massive amounts of hair every February. I am not sure what it is about the month of February (we live in Wisconsin so it’s winter during that time) but that is the exact time it occurs every year. The past couple of years her hair has grown back well after she loses so much every February, but this year it is not growing back as well. The hair that she does have is extremely thin and fine, gets tangled easily, and falls out easily. Any ideas of possible root causes for this condition? What can I do to help her with this? Thanks!

 

Hayley: Hi Dr. Cabral. I have two kids - both of them eat very well both have different levels of yellowish teeth. My daughters is very mildly yellow but my sons is more yellow brown. They eat very well - have grown up vegetarian/vegan- But my son was also diagnosed with Crohn’s last year. Maybe that has something to do with things? Not sure. we’ve always gone to a holistic dentist he thinks that 30s are very healthy but I don’t believe they should be this discolored. If you have any ideas would love to know. Thank you so much again for your time

 

Michelle: I recently came upon your podcast and have to say how much I enjoy learning from you. I am hoping you may be able to help. My mother has had burning mouth syndrome for over 9 years. She has been to almost every type of dr/dentist/specialist under the sun and no one has been able to figure out the cause or come up with any protocol to give her any relief. She also was diagnosed with Parkinson's later the same year as the burning mouth. Do you have any insight into this disease and how it can be better managed? It's been 9 years of continuous pain and the lack of enjoyment of anything she eats and drinks is taking a toll. Thank you.

 

Kelsey: Hi Dr. Cabral! I’m wondering if you could shed some light on why taking an inositol supplement was so successful in lowering my testosterone. After starting an inositol supplement daily and it being the only notable change in my lifestyle, my testosterone went from way higher than normal for a woman my age (27yrs) (5.3) to within normal range (3.6). These levels were taken on the same day of my cycle so it seems that it really is a true reflection of the success of inositol. I know inositol is meant to help with blood sugar regulation, but was not expecting it to be so helpful in lowering my testosterone levels. Thanks!

 

Heather: Hello Dr. Cabral!! At the time I am writing this I hope you are enjoying summer with your family! A couple of your older podcasts on children’s immune health have been circulating (858,956) and questions have been asked of the Facebook group about where to find the supplements you had recommended in the shows now that the FDA no longer allows you to link them. My question is, are you still doing the same immune protocols for your girls as you did years ago? How can we find out what the products are that you use for your kids? All of us parents out there who love and trust your advice would be so grateful to get the info! Blessings to you for the light you are in this world!

 

Anonymous: Hello, 'm asking this question for a 24 year old fairly healthy, muscular young man. He took Accutane (isotretoin) for acne , about 5 months now and now is experiencing some impotence (erectile dysfunction)-- this started about 3 months ago. I've read some case reports about this medicine possibly cause this side effects and people are saying that it is a LONG term side effect ( and irreversible). Is this true? Or is there hope we can rebalance / cleanse the body of the toxins from this medication? THANKS so much for your help and mission. I'm a huge fan of the podcast and have recently tried intermittent fasting and starting to feel the wonderful benefits. :)

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: 

 

Alaa: My lab showes that i have Multiple small follicles in bilateral ovaries arrange randomly my gyne ruled it as PCOS i have amenorrhea since more than one year i only got it twice my period was always regular my whole life i have tested all my hormones and everything was in the normal range the dr informed me only estogen was normal low , although i have amenorrhea, excess hair , oily skin some days i feel fatigued, some days im super good , some days i cannt move a pen and things starts falling sometimes healthy bowel movements sometimes severe constipation the dr didn’t find any thing wrong in any lab tests and ultrasound, insulin is super good and fasting glucose is always between 70~88 , what i can do about that ? Im super active person because of my work and i excercise usually 4-5 times a week weight training and my cardio is 20 min *5 times a week .. i used to do low carb HIIT AND INTERMITTENT FASTING But I stopped them cause I feel my body cant handle it anymore. My main concern is why sometimes im feeling super good and sometimes im feeling like super zero energy where i stay in bed all day long and going to the toilet seems very hard is it related to alot of exhaustion cause im on 1400 kcal diet as a female but some days im super active and fine i cant find anything since i did all the MRI ULTRASOUND LAB TESTS THAT I XOULD DO AND EVERYTHING IS FINE

 

Maria: Hi Dr. Cabral! I've written in about this issue before and am just looking for any last insights you might have into my vitamin D deficiency. Last time you suggested a vit D lamp, but I didn't end up going that route since summer was just around the corner. My vitamin D has hovered around 30 for the past year. I've had it checked 5 or so times now. I've listened to your Vitamin D podcast many times and I'm doing literally every single thing you suggest. I was taking 10,000 IU Vit D at lunch w/ a meal containing fat, I take extra K2 with it, I also use the DNS powder daily. After 3-4 months of doing that, I was able to get my number up to 39 (highest I've ever had). In early May I backed down to 4000 IU b/c I took a couple vacations to the beach and also it's summer now, and I'm outside getting sun exposure daily for at least 20-30 minutes (more than an hour on the weekends). So I just retested and my Vit D dropped to 22, even with all this sun exposure! What might be preventing my body from absorbing Vit D? And what are your thoughts on continuing 10000 IU long term since it doesn't seem to results in dangerously high vit D blood levels for me

 

Anonymous: Hello! Big fan of the show, thanks for all you do in the world of wellness and for helping so many people! I am curious what your thoughts are on taking Digestive Enzymes during pregnancy. I know women should minimize their supplement intake as much as possible when pregnant (avoiding herbal therapies, avoiding mega doses of vitamins, etc.), but was curious if these are safe to keep using during pregnancy. Thanks again for all you do!

 

Marlen: Hello! I have a question regarding zinc. Whenever I take it I develop mouth sores and skin lesions stop healing properly. I think I am deificient in copper since I have early hair greying (I am only 27), lowered white blood cells and a history with recurrent iron deficiency anemia. I would like to take balanced zinc (for balancing copper) but cant tolerate zinc (same thing happens when taking a mutltivitamin). I also have lots of food intolerances and gut imbalances (I am currently doing the CBO protocol) but still struggling since everything seems to be upsetting my system. Any suggestions/insights? Thank you for everything you do!!

 

Jamie: Hi! My question is about Lyme disease in children. My daughter is 6 years old and we believe she has Lyme disease. She is being tested now. Is there a test you suggest and protocol to help her if she has it? Thank you!!

 

Darren: Good day. What are your thoughts on Dr XXXX (@carnivoremd2.0) saying to avoid seeds, roots, stems, vegetables because they're harmful to human body in favour for meat, organ meat, fruit, honey and white rice occasionally?

 

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!

Cold and heat-based therapies have been used for thousands of years due to their numerous benefits…

 

But just because something is beneficial for one person doesn’t necessarily make it good for all…

 

For example, when is the best time of the day to use cold therapy and for how long and at what temperature…

 

And, should you do your sauna before or after exercise, and for how long?

 

On today’s show, I want to walk you through the differences between both hot and cold therapies and help you understand how to properly utilize each one. Plus, we’ll detail when the best time is to use them around your workouts.

 

So join me on today’s #CabralConcept 2442 where we discuss when to use sauna & cold plunges and if they may be beneficial to YOU – Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

Whether it’s for immunity, sleep, recovery, metabolism, mood, or many other processes, vitamin D3 plays a major role in how you feel…

 

And while you can get vitamin D3 from some food sources and sunlight, you may not be able to achieve optimal levels through this alone...

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2441 I want to share with you why vitamin D3 is important to the body and help you understand if you should take vitamin D3 all year round – Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

We all know our immune system plays an important role in keeping us healthy.

 

And over the last 2 years, the discussion of boosting the immune system has taken center stage.

 

But as with anything, it is important to understand why you are doing something and how it works instead of just taking it at face value.

 

When it comes to our immune system, we need to look at the body as a whole and understand how each part works together.

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2440 I want to share with you the 7 immune-boosting organs in your body and how they all work synergistically to keep you healthy– Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

It may seem like there are people out there who were just meant to succeed…

 

It feels like they were born with a natural talent or skill that makes it easier for them than the rest of us.

 

But I am here to tell you that isn’t true. 

 

There are no special skills or talents that other people possess that you cannot also learn.

 

And while talent may not be a prerequisite for success there are some things that all successful people have in common that you can implement too.

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2439 I want to share with you the 7 ways you can succeed in life and be great at whatever it is that you are looking to achieve– 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…

 

Richard: Hello Dr. Cabral, About 9 months ago I started working with your wonderful team at Equilife to rebalance my body & get healthy again. I took the big 5 labs and worked with an Equilife health coach. She came up with a plan which I followed diligently. It consisted of the 7-day detox, CBO, CBO finisher, mold, heavy metal detox and an intestinal cleanse at 3 separate times during the plan. At the end of all that I even did the 21-day detox to help clean out any toxins that the protocols didn't catch. Unfortunately, I am still in a hypothyroid state due to Hashimotos. I understand that some people will need medication or some kind of glandular support even after rebalancing the body due to the destruction of the thyroid tissue. The problem is that I can't seem to tolerate thyroid medications or even natural glandular products. When I take these I get symptoms such as severe insomnia, heart palpitations, anxiety etc. even at the smallest of doses, Just like symptoms of being overmedicated. I've done lots of research over the years and one of the thyroid books that I have says that low cortisol can prevent the thyroid hormones from entering the cell. According to my SMM test, my cortisol results were fine. A few years ago I was on cortisol medication which enabled me to tolerate the medication but it didn’t help my symptoms. The same thing happened while taking adrenal cortex. My question is if you ever had a patient that couldn’t tolerate medications/glandulars & if so how would you remedy this? FYI I have been in a hypothyroid state for 30 years now. I live a very healthy lifestyle with an antioxidant rich diet, exercise & manage stress. I am planning on retaking the big 5 labs again to see if the protocols worked & if there is anything that is preventing me from getting well. I had to retype this question & shorten it once the text field prevented me from typing any more words, apparently I still have to submit 2 questions. I apologize for the length of this question as I tried to make it as short as possible without leaving out important details. I’ve spent all my time, energy & finances in trying to get well & I’m not sure where to go from here. I am very grateful for you & your team and thank you so much for your help!

 

Carrie: I understand my APOe4 is 2/4. What does that mean for me? I was told I have a 50% chance of acquiring Alzheimer’s. Thank you.

 

Sandra: My almost 6yr old son has had a cut under his big toe (where toe meets foot) and sometimes it looks irritated and other times it dries out - the cut runs from end to end of his toe..at one point it was on both big toes and now only one. I have tried fully drying it out with a hair dryer during the winter, also applying teat tree oil/ointment.. but this one cut is always there. Do you have any advice on what it can be and how to heal it?

 

Tonya: Hi there! I am pretty confident that you and your team can help my aunt get on the right track with her health but I thought I'd write in so my cousins can here it for themselves... now I am going to be very vague because I don't know many details but I do know that's ok as far as you just pointing her in the right direction... my aunt has kidney issues. She currently does dialysis 3 times a week and has been for quite some time. One time she told me she is only allowed to drink 8oz of water a day. And my dad has told me she has not urinated in years. I would love so much for her to not have to spend the rest of her life like this. Where can we start? Thank you so much for all your knowledge and care. (I plan to join IHP and have just started reading your book! )

 

Tara: Hi there! I love your podcast and have gotten so much out of it. Thank you for all you do. I’m currently reading your book, The Rain Barrel Effect, for the second time. It’s SUCH an informative read, stuff I wish I learned earlier in life. I homeschool my three young boys and would LOVE to utilize your book in our homeschool program. It may be a bit advanced for them, but I can adjust it to their level. I was wondering if you ever thought of writing a book geared more towards our younger generation? Or do you have an recommendations of books I can incorporate into our day. Thank you so much! Tara

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: 

 

Marilyn: In listening to your podcast about healing and sealing Leaky gut/SIBO, what is the name of the Lactobacillus strain that you suggest to start with? I can't quite understand what you said. I have been diagnosed with Leaky gut and possible SIBO but my functional doctor is wanting me to start with Probiotics and I get upper stomach pain from them.

 

Sandra: hi Dr. Cabral, love your work and I just finished the limited yeast protocol for high candida that came up on my big 5. I reintroduced all foods except for eggs. My migraines did not stop, and I want them gone – it makes me so hopeful that you say they do have a cure. My rain barrel must have filled up back in 2008 when painful migraines and hair loss/thinning started, and both have continued since. I am just fully looking into it after finding your work. For the last 6 years the migraines are mostly only in the nerves behind the eyes (eyes are healthy, no changes over time either) and mainly around the same time as my period, lasting 2-3 days. For 2 cycles, during the protocols, the migraine came a week after my period, that was the only change. I am working with a health coach and now focusing on heavy metal detox – mercury levels at 0.132. What else should I focus on? I think they are hormonal... and wonder if hair thinning can also be tied to hormones.

 

Emily: Hi Dr. Stephen, I really appreciate your guidance and advice. My just turned 8 year old son has been critically ill many times. He has severe brittle asthma, severe mucus plugging (has required high flow oxygen many times) and is highly allergic to many things, including being anaphylactic to antibiotics. I had a healthy pregnancy & he was born just after his due date, all natural birth & breast fed till he was over 12 months old. His siblings have no allergies or lung issues. He is currently undergoing allergy injections (2 injections every 4 weeks) for his rye grass, dust mites, moulds, and olive tree pollen allergies, we are 18months into this treatment which is set to continue for 3years. So far we have had no noticeable improvement from the injections. We have a farm in the South East of South Australia. He enjoys being active outside with his siblings and friends when he can. I am searching for help and advice. I am searching for answers as to why this is happening & what can be done to really help his lungs to strengthen & heal. I am struggling to get answers as to what is causing it all, from his specialists. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. Kindest regards, Emily

 

Adele: Hello I am a 65 year old female, 5'2", 104, very active (walk, light weigh lifting (3-5 pounds), cycle classes, other gym classes. I suffer from daily chronic migraines. It is debilitating many days. After trying numerous preventive drugs - I now take "Memantine"(as of 3 months ago) which is for dementia patients - it is working fairly well right now.. Side effects are dizziness, low energy, head buzzing, etc. I plan to begin HRT again soon. should I? Other options for post menapausal issues? I have had 2 annual infusions of RECLAST past 2 summers. Osteoperosis same after that. They want me to take a 3rd infusion. Other issues are: severe osteoperosis, macular degeneration, neck and back pains. Supplements: (organic?) Vitamin D3 10,000IU, Calcium, Vitamin K, Magnesium, Fish Oil, I eat a fairly healthy diet - I ordered the 21 day Detox, food sensitivity test, Complete minerals and metals test. Any other recommendations? What is too much Vitamin D?

 

Alicja: Dr. Cabral, I need your wisdom again. I started checking my blood sugar and noticed it is always high. My glucose level first thing in the morning is always above 100 (between 105-115) I can't get it below 100, no matter how long I go without food. After eating it's between 130-180 depending what I ate. I listened to your older podcast and applied all 3 things you talked about. I eat 3 meals per day (3-4 house apart) I tried fasted jogging in the morning and I typically do intermittent fasting. glucose level is always above 100. I also noticed that if I go over 3h without food, the glucose level often rises up comparing to what was 2-3 h after meal. Do you think it's because not eating is too much stress on my body? I'm not typical candidate for diabetes. I'm tall and skinny, vata body type. I'm underweight (BMI below 16) I'm not sure if I have to give up carbs? Also does all that mean I'm insulin resistant? Or that I don't produce enough insulin? Thank you again for your help. Your big fan. Alicja

There are tremendous benefits that can be gained from specific biohacking techniques…

 

But just like anything else, if you take it too far, it can potentially put your body at risk.

 

The problem most people have, however, is time…

 

I don’t know many people, myself included, who have an extra 2-3 hours per day for their biohacking routine.

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2435 I want to share with you the benefits behind specific biohacks and review my new 30-minute daily biohacking routine – Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

Unfortunately, a vast majority of doctors in the conventional medicine space do not feel adequately prepared to help women transition through menopause…

 

So, it’s no surprise that women would look for alternative options on how they can help ease the symptoms…

 

The problem is that most conventionally trained MDs are simply not aware of the numerous resources that provide insight into a holistic approach to menopause and the years of science that back them up, so their doctors simply dismiss them…

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2434 I want to share with you the research behind the specific herbs that ease menopausal symptoms, so you can make the best decision for you – Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

What is a cow’s favorite color skittle?

What would it mean to you if you woke up every day feeling at peace and proud of the life you are living?

 

We all have goals, but one of the main things that prevent us from reaching that next level in life is the busyness of our everyday lives…

 

It may seem impossible for you to add more to your schedule right now, but adding more doesn’t necessarily mean more time, effort, or energy…

 

On today’s #CabralConcept 2432 I want to share with you one of life’s best secrets and how life’s “great paradox” can make a lasting impact on 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…

 

Lisa: Hi Dr Cabral! I am starting to travel a lot for my job, and I am wondering if I should be concerned about going through the XRay machines at airport security several times a year? I am also curious if you think the check in using Clear (where they scan your retinas) are safe. I was considering signing up, but I wanted to get your thoughts first. Thanks!

 

Ashley: Hello Dr. Cabral! I have been listening to your podcast and following your protocols since I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called undifferentiated connective tissue disease in 2018. I am currently doing the CBO protocol after completing a 7 day detox. I feel so much better and down about 7 pounds! I am about a week and a half in to the CBO protocol. My only issue is that I am experiencing constipation, loose stools, and afternoon fatigue. Also having so muscle pain at night that feels like “growing pains”. I was recently diagnosed with periampullary diverticulum of the gallbladder, and was told by my GI specialist that this might be why I have a hard time digesting seeds and nuts and probiotics would help. From personal experience I have struggled to find a decent probiotic that worked for me. I don’t know much about this diagnosis. In February 2022 I did a candida test which was negative. I also did an igG 184 food panel and had lots of sensitivities which indicated leaky gut. In May 2022 I completed a SIBO test which was also negative. I’m just wondering if anyone had any experience with periampullary diverticulum of the gallbladder and if I should continue to follow the sensitive food guide as is when I know I don’t have SIBO or candida overgrowths? Thank you!

 

Amanda: Hi Dr. Cabral, I've listened to your methylation podcasts & know I have issues bc of genetic testing. The problem is, the SNPs I have showing red aren't the ones you mentioned in your podcast. I read that I should avoid methyl Bs because of having COMT/TXNRD2 A4251G TT risk alleles combined with COMT V158M AA risk alleles & COMT H62H TT risk alleles (all three are red for me) because this means I have trouble breaking down dopamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine and estrogen: "It has been clinically observed that the body may have trouble tolerating methyl donors (folate, B12, methionine, betaine, choline) with a COMT V158M + and a VDR Taq + status.” Also said with lower COMT activity to avoid supplements w/ catechol structure - quercetin, EGC/G, and luteolin (which you said help methylation). My B6 is low (0.96) but B12 looks okay (1.2) and I was advised to take your Activated B complex, but I'm nervous about the methyl Bs after reading above. My brother also has low B6 and vit C and has seizures if he ever misses doses of Keppra. My question is whether you know anything about these other SNPs, if you advise supplementing with B6 only, or if I can somehow get more genetics guidance through your practice?

 

Carol: Thank you so much for helping me with the main Dr Cabral detox and the heavy metal detox. I feel better. My question is about treating hematochromosis, where some people build up excess iron in the body, especially the liver Normal treatment is frequent blood donation. My question is, is the metal detox going to help this? How about the regular detox? Thanks Carol

 

Alicja: Hi Dr. Cabral, I hope you are doing well. My question is about Adrenal Sooth suplement. I learned from your podcasts that the best is to take it at night, or at lunch and then again after dinner. My highest stress is always in the morning and first half a day. Is it ok to take Adrenal Sooth with breakfast? Or would that slow me down too much and made me feel a bit sluggish during the busiest time of my days. Big THANK YOU for your amazing work.

 

Cathy: Hi Dr Cabral, I am so happy to have found you several weeks ago. I work with a wonderful Holistic Chiropractor and she is following you as well, she has me on a parasite cleanse and I did a liver cleanse beforehand in January. My question has to do with a friend who has Fragile X-Associated Tremor Ataxia Syndrome (FXTAS.) Apparently, she is a "carrier" of the gene and has an adult son with autism who has the RNA gene. I looked on your recent podcasts to research but didn't find anything. Thank you in advance for any info you might share and I look forward to working with you and your staff in the future. Cath

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: First off, thanks again for all that you do in providing great content, services and products to our community. I have a question in terms of tinctures. I am currently growing shiitake and lion’s mane mushrooms on logs in my yard along with harvesting wild oyster and turkey tail mushrooms. After eating ample mushrooms I will have a lot extra and am thinking of making a dual extract tincture with all 4 mushroom types to take advantage of the medicinal properties. My question is if you end up with a 30% alcohol tincture and take a dropper per day does the alcohol consumed counteract the benefits of the mushrooms? Can kids consume tinctures? Thanks again.

 

Alicja: Dear Dr. Cabral, Could you please explain the difference between Adrenal Soothe and Adrenal Energy Support (EquiLife supplements) Which circumstances would a be better fit for adrenal soothe and when adrenal energy support is better. Thank you so much.

 

Keith: Dr. Cabral, I'm 61 years old, I've lived with Crohn's since my early teens and despite numerous doctors, psychiatrists, tests my disease went undiagnosed. I suffered through many episodes of depression, apathy, anxiety and general malaise. At 46 my disease flared and I was misdiagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, being treated for UC for 3.5 years with multiple flare-ups, hospitalizations, prednisone cycles, etc. After a severe flare-up I ended up in the Emergency Room at the University of Chicago, by God's grace Dr. David Rubin was on call and took over my case. Two days later after multiple tests, I was told my colon was ready to rupture in 4 spots(1in each segment), 5 days later surgery to remove 98% of my large intestine. 6 months later after a sigmoidscopy, I endured a 10.5 hr. surgery due to the significant scar tissue and inflammation. I live with a permanent Ileostomy. I've been on an 11 year journey to understand and develop a lifestyle to adapt to this handicap and have yet to be exposed to a comprehensive article, podcast, etc to better understand this condition. Your podcasts have enlightened me on so many subjects and would ask if you might able to address this on one of your podcasts? Sincerely Keith

 

Ryan: Thanks again for all that you do and hope you are having a great day. For my question, once you take the time and put in the effort to get your gut rebalanced how sensitive is it to becoming imbalanced and what can you do to help maintain? More specifically, on a week long vacation I can have a few alcoholic drinks daily, would this or could this mess things up? Is there anything that can be done during the vacation to help reduce the risk? Daily foundational protocol, healthy gut support, probiotics, immune support…? Have you heard of ZBiotics? It is a pre-alcohol probiotic that breaks down acetaldehyde, would this help? Once again I know the best answer is to abstain from daily alcoholic drinks but just wondering how to reduce the potential damage. Thanks again.

 

Kevin: Hi, I have recently been diagnosed with sarcoidosis. Are there protocols or perhaps labs whose result(s) would provide a path beyond medications?...or is conventional medicine my only option? Thanks, Kevin

 

Katherine: I had a thyroid storm in 1984, and my thyroid was radiated. I have been on Synthroid for 38 years. i was diagnosed with Graves in 1984. I am 60 years old. 5'3 135 pounds. I have struggled with my weight for all of these years. How do I stoke my metabolism without a T-3 or T-4 gland?

We are at a place in society where we have everything we need right at our fingertips…

 

And while technology is great, it has stunted our need for movement and helped us embrace a more sedentary, techno-based lifestyle.

 

New research shows us that daily movement is essential to our overall health and longevity, but unfortunately, many people are not meeting this health requirement…

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2428 I want to share some research with you and go over why formal exercise is not enough to stay healthy and the importance of getting in other forms of movement - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

With over 100 trillion bacteria in our digestive system, it is easy to understand that science is only just breaking the surface on the intricacies surrounding gut health…

 

There has been a lot of talk recently about fecal transplants and how they might be beneficial to those suffering with severe gut issues.

 

What are fecal transplants, why would anyone need one, and what could be the possible downsides of doing one?

 

Join me on today’s #CabralConcept 2426 where I go over what this method involves, how it is being used, and discuss my thoughts on if fecal transplants are the next big thing in gut health - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

Where most people go wrong is that they overestimate the amount of work in order to make improvements in any area of their health…

 

What really matters is what you are doing on a daily basis because these daily actions accumulate over time…

 

Science shows us that a majority of the cells in our body are turning over every 90 days…

 

If you can commit to making small changes in your daily habits, you can make a dramatic turnaround in any area of your life (especially your health) within 12 weeks’ time…

 

So, on today’s #CabralConcept 2425 I’d like to share with you why healing is inevitable- 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…

 

Alicja: Hi Dr. Cabral, I hope you are doing well. My question is about Adrenal Soothe suplement. I learned from your podcasts that the best is to take it at night, or at lunch and then again after dinner. My highest stress is always in the morning and first half a day. Is it ok to take Adrenal Sooth with breakfast? Or would that slow me down too much and made me feel a bit sluggish during the busiest time of my days. Big THANK YOU for your amazing work.

 

Anonymous: Are there any herbs, supplements, etc. that you know of that definitively cause miscarriages? (Not simply herbs/supplements that are recommended to not use during pregnancy out of caution, but herbs/supplements that have an extremely high correlation and possible causation with miscarriages specifically)

 

Angela: My 22 y.o. daughter was diagnosed with Pars Planitis when she was 10, which is a disease of the eye that is characterized by inflammation of the narrowed area between the colored part of the eye and the choroid. This may lead to blurred vision; dark, floating spots; and progressive vision loss. As the condition advances, cataracts, retinal detachment, or macular edema may develop". She has been seeing one of the best doctors for this at Emory Chilldren's Hospital in ATL. She gets steroid injections and or a cryo procedures done once/twice a year. Her doctor had always predicted that she would grow out of this in her early 20s, but that is not happening. Her doctor is now recommending that she start taking either Humira or methotrexate (which is what I am taking). I was diagnosed with RA in 2004 and she was tested for that recently as well, but found that she does not have RA. I have been following you for several months now. I have done the 21 day detox, ran the big 5 labs plus the stool test, had my 2 hr consultation last month with one of your IHPs and working through all of my protocols now. The last thing I want is for her is to get on these meds which I am trying desperately to get off of . Just wondering if you have any knowledge of this and what you recommend?

 

Mallory: Hi Dr. Cabral! I thought of one more question to ask you after writing in last week! I’ve done your mold protocol & felt better fairly quickly! I do however still see biofilm in my stool every day after slowly detoxing for about a year now. Could what appears to be biofilm in my stool, actually be the result of something else, such as a supplement? Are you able to say if this is my body still detoxing? I’ve been getting what I believe are Herx - type reactions about once a month. I am wondering if this is more than likely because of detoxing too quickly, or if i am just catching more colds because my immune system is down. I use gi detox, which I realize is charcoal based. As I heal, could my body become less sensitive to charcoal / binders in general? Can you tell me if it is possible to heal from mold toxicity (Ochatroxin A, specifically) without any binders at all? Can Citricidal help? Lastly, I was diagnosed with hoshimotos shortly after I got my mold labs back. Have you seen individuals get rid of hoshimotos by detoxing from mold? So sorry for all the questions, I understand you cannot give medical advice :) I unfortunately have not yet been able to get in touch with any other professionals that are as experienced as you in my specific dis-eases! :)

 

Jenna: I am writing on behalf of my Mom who has been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and it's mainly concentrated to her leg muscles. They are constantly achey, especially at night and hurt even more when she lays down on them. It's like the nerves are sensitive to any pressure. She has done 2 labs through EquiLife- an HTMA and an Omega 3. The HTMA showed Calcium & Magnesium through the roof, and elevated mercury (she has amalgams but won't get them out). The Omega 3 test was normal (she supplements). What would be your next step in this scenario?

 

Steven: Hey Doc! What are your thoughts on AquaPure? Apparently it uses regular tap water and a small amount of salt to create a “powerful” cleaning solution that removes pesticides, bacteria, and other contaminants. It claims to get rid of more than 99% of pesticides but no sure if this is legit!
