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:
Rhea: Hi Dr. Cabral - Can you please provide a point of view on Waveblock's radiation deflectors for Bluetooth earbuds? While it deflects radiation from the ear/brain, could that be absorbed elsewhere in the process of deflection? I would love to know if you think this is a safe solution. THANK YOU!

Maelys: Hello Doctor. I discovered your podcast few months ago and I listen to you every morning on my way to work. Thank you for sharing all this knowledge. I have hidradenitis suppurativa, it is « genetics » as my sisters, mom and her mom also suffer from it. Do you have any advices? Have you help any client to put it in remission? I have been very ill for the last year and a half. I am literally feeling half alive… I found a great GP that diagnosed candida overgrowth (Candida albicans) currently treating it with nilstat I am wondering if those 2 conditions could be linked? Therefore HS won’t’ be genetics but a symptom of candida overgrowth that is transmitted by the mother’s vagina canal at birth? Thank you
Leandro:Hi Dr. Cabral. I enjoy listening to your podcast and have learned a lot from them. I wanted to ask if you ever tried Magic Spoon cereal and would you recommend it? It's supposed to be a healthy alternative to traditional cereal. https://magicspoon.com/ Thanks, Leandro
Danielle: Hi Dr. Stephen Cabral, Big fan of yours! I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos Hypothyroidism and have been detoxifying my environment. For the past 2 years I have been working with Polymer Clay as a hobby. I recently looked into what this "non-toxic" clay was made out of and it is man-made from a plastic, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) base. Would you advise staying away from this material as someone with an autoimmune disease? Thank you!
Hilary: Hi Dr Cabral, I am a new listener and am a huge fan, currently working through the backlog of podcasts. I have a question regarding daily activity. Like many these days, I work from home and am currently finishing my Bachelors Of Science in Health and Wellness (then plan to move on to the IHP courses!). I am 44 years old, had my last baby at 38 and have never been someone who has had trouble with my weight. I am a kapha body type, very curvy and gain weight evenly everywhere when I put weight on. I never lost the “baby weight” from having my last child and have put on about 15 extra since then. Completely due to a sedentary desk job at home, combined with being tethered to the computer after work to work on my degree. Needless to say, I have a very hard time getting my 10,000 steps as it seems there are simply just not enough hours in the day between work, school and commutes back and forth to pickup/ drop off of kids. Do you have any recommendations for how I can get my 10,000 steps in, if they’re broken up in chunks are they still effective? I follow a 14/10 to 16/8 intermittent fasting schedule 7 days per week and since hearing your podcast, do not eat after 6pm on any given day. I am very careful of my caloric intake, keeping my total calories right about 1500.
Nicole: Hi Dr. Cabral! I am a big fan and super enjoy your podcast. It has really sparked an interest in the field of natural medicine and health and I hope to be enrolled in your ihp program in the next year :) I have a question around napping. I have a newer job where I am up before 5:30 and working by 6:30. After 8-9 hours of working and being stimulated by tons of people and things to do I feel like I absolutely have to lay down. I take great naps between 20-30mins and feel refreshed, mind cleared and like I can continue on with my evening normally. I can get overwhelmed and stressed with work, take adrenal soothe daily (3-4 capsules) and was wondering if this is normal, and why I need extra sleep at 3pm after early and eventful workdays. I go to bed 9:30-10:30 every night, sleep well, and am a pitta-kapha body type and 27 years old if that adds anything. I have listened to your show on napping and wanted to hear any additional thoughts. Thank you!
