I used to ask myself all the time what's the whole point to what seems to be a mundane day-to-day existence...

I simply had no idea what I was supposed to be doing and I had little idea what the point of it would be anyway...

But then I started to read more and educate myself on ancient philosophies, as well as modern day clinical psychology...

I began to realize not only does our existence not lack meaning, but on the contrary we have so much to live for!

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 899 where I share with you one of my favorite clinical psychologist's viewpoints on the purpose and meaning of life - Enjoy the show!

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!

Anne: Dr Cabral, I just started into a new case of daily nutritional support. I buy the 6 and get 2 free amount every several months. I started with a 2 week detox and have continued for the last 14 months with a shake for breakfast, plant based lunch and reasonable dinner. I have lost 40 pounds and went from 160 to 120 #. So thrilled with my new me! Thank you! I just am disappointed again with the flavor change of the daily nutritional support. I got a batch a half year ago or so that was tasteless and I found out the stevia was left out. My next batch was back to great taste. Now this new batch is pretty tasteless again and wondering what the difference is now? I’m mostly disappointed with the inconsistency of the product...it is very expensive for me to buy and I’m hesitant to keep purchasing it if the flavor keeps changing.

Madison:  Hi there! I heard of your podcast via Melissa Ambrosini, and it came at the *perfect* time. After running a stool sample + blood work with my local chiro and finding klebsiella pneumoniae and microbial yeast overgrowth (candida). We did a standard treatment he always prescribes for this, cut out kombucha and I started eating all foods (I'd been gluten/dairy avoidant for years, thinking it was a dairy allergy). Things got better until they didn't... and now, 6 months out, have worse abdominal bloating and discomfort than before. (I'm talking side/liver pain, terrible + embarrassing gas, discomfort and going from loose stools to constipation and back again. IBS seems to be the thing all the doctors are saying, as I can't trace *one food* that causes an issue consistently. It's dairy, sometimes. Smoothies, sometimes. Greens, sometimes. Wheat, sometimes. Things really flared up after traveling to Australia and eating the airplane food. I feel strongly after listening to your podcast that your candida protocol would serve me well! I don't think it's just IBS, especially after having this testing. Plus, I was on a z-pack 3-4 x a year, *every year* as a child, on antibiotics for acne and birth control for a few years too. My main question is: do I need to do more testing since it's been 6 months? Or am I good to purchase the full protocol based on the blood work and stool samples I already have? I'm open to applying to work one on one, however know it's a large financial commitment and if I already have the tests, it might not be necessary! Thanks so much for taking the time! I look forward to completely healing! -Madison P.S. It's worth mentioning that diverticulitis also runs in my family, and almost everyone has gut issues. It *could* be that too?

Tiffany:  I am seeing a Naturopath in Atlanta about my fatty lipomas under the skin. She seems to know what she's talking about and after listening to several of your podcasts, I think she has put me on the right path. I would love to know if you have had experience with lipomas and have successfully treated them? I am 45 y.o., 133 lbs, and work out 5 times/week. I am "healthy" by western medicine standards, but have had gut issues and am now on Dr. # 4 trying to figure out what's causing the lipomas to appear. Dr. Kate Brooks says they are related to blood flukes, and immune/gut/inflammation issues and I have been on a host of supplements and minerals for the last month. I hope this will work, as I'm spending lots of $$$ on these supplements (none are her own brand. she recommends different ones).

Stephanie:  I'm writing in about my 9 year old son. He has a bad case of Keratosis Pilaris. I searched previous podcasts for Keratosis Pilaris but couldn't find any so I'm here asking your expertise. He recently finished your children's CBO protocol and followed it up with the gut rebuilding. The bumps on his arms are a lot better but the ones on his legs almost look worse. He had a history of antibiotics as a child BC of kidney problems (which is why we chose to do the CBO protocol). Wondering if this is diet related or what we can do to clear it up? Thanks so much for your time!

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:

Kylie: Hi Stephen! My name is Kylie and I’m from Australia. First of all I want to say thank you for everything your doing to help others all over the world. I came across your podcast only recently and have been binge listening ever since. The fact that you want to share your hard earned knowledge and reach out to help as many people as you can is truely inspiring! I am a mother of 3 beautiful children (9,7,5) and over the last few years have slowly felt my health start to suffer, where now I’m at a point where I feel completely overwhelmed, lost, unable to sleep, brain fog, moody, very VERY low libido, yeast infections, Dry skin, low mood and bloating. 6 years ago I learnt how nutrition played an important role in overall health. I eat clean whole foods- lots of veg, fruit, small amounts of red meat, fish, chicken, some nuts and seeds, healthy fats. No gluten, refined sugars, processed foods, alcohol or dairy. Bit of background- relatively healthy childhood. I was extreamly sick throughout all my pregnancies and was put on steroids for my 3rd pregnancy so I could just function. After I weened my 3rd child I noticed a huge hormonal shift that has never really normalised (negative mood, skin complexion, low libido, feeling down) Have been to doctors about my issues and without testing have just told me maybe I have IBS, pomphlox eczema (gave me steroid creams) and try to put me on anti-anxiety drugs. I have had a huge passion for health and wellness for many years and know that there is a root cause for all that’s going on health wise for me. I have lost faith in my GP and want to start putting my health and my life together. On one of your episodes, you mentioned, that in order to heal, you knew you had to switch off your “fight or flight” response. That healing cannot commence until we are calm and in a parasympathetic mode. I want to know more about how you made this switch and where I need to begin to start getting myself better. I also start studying nutrition next month and want to have the energy and focus to do so. Thank you, and I hope you can help me. With love, Kylie 

Chris: Hey Doctor Cabral! I'm a 26 year old, Pitta, exercise 5 times a week (bodybuilding style) and only have a once a week cheat meal like yourself. Stick to a 40/30/30 Carbs to protein to fat ratio. About six months ago I finished your cbo protocol for Sibo, h pylori and e coli. Although the healing has been a long process, now I feel great, I have no more bloating or brain fog even when I eat high fodmap foods. Still healing my adrenals which are much better with recently adding bitter melon to stabilize blood sugar seemed to help a lot especially with sleep. My only problem right now is I am still Constipated if I don't consume at least 800mg of magnesium daily. Right after the CBO protocol I tried to re build stomach acid and used ginger tea with meals only to have a severe burning in my stomach which significantly felt like it eroded my lining irritating it. It made sleeping a nightmare as my stomach would be pulsing all night. I began to take colloid silver and healthy belly for 2 months in case there was any h pylori still there. Then I started taking pepto bismol morning and night as a coating for my stomach as natural herbs gave me brain fog. 3 months later and my stomach was healed enough to switch to slippery elm and marshmallow root which have done wonders in soothing my stomach but now since I stopped the pepto bismol it feels like my motility is even slower. Right now I take glutamine, your daily activated multi, vitamin d, fish oil, melatonin, slippery elm, marshmallow root, your daily probiotic and a digestive enzyme. Zinc in any form even with food makes me nauseous and cannot tolerate gse at all, very irritating. Never have been able to tolerate citrus well for that matter. Have one cup of coffee with theanine in the morning. I also notice occasional bubbly urine. And I don't think it's h pylori only because I always have HUGE appetite lol. But in case I was thinking I may need to do some more colloidal silver and mastic gum again or maybe work on cooling herbs like amla to calm down and soothe my pitta? Or maybe its the adrenals? Sorry this is long, just wanted to be thorough. Lab testing is a little out of budget right now so any advice is much appreaciated. Thanks and loved your book by the way!

 

Elyssa: Hi! Big fan of your podcast and have learned so much from you. I'm 29 and suffer from a smell disorder, Phantosmia, for the past 10 years of my life along with anxiety. I was originally mis-diagnosed with Temporal Lobe Epilepsy and took several anti-Epileptic drugs for 6 years without much relief. When I got off all medication, I tried other methods of relief such as acupuncture with no success. I am now seeing a functional doctor who thinks based on my blood work, I have a low functioning immune system, deficiency in B12, and infection in my gut. I am drinking celery juice every morning to restore hydrocloric acid in my stomach and help get my digestive system functioning better. I'm very active and eat a very healthy, whole food diet. I just want to be better and get rid of this awful smell and anxiety, how do you think I can get cured of this?

 

Kelly: Hello Dr. Cabral! Love your podcast and listen every day! I was told when I was a teen that I have a genetic disorder in which my red blood cells are irregularly shaped. Specifically, my doc told me that my hemoglobin only holds 3 molecules of oxygen instead of 4. I researched this online as an adult and believe it is called Thalessemia. I was never told that I need blood transfusions, but the doc told me I would need to take iron supplements for the rest of my life. I have gone through periods of not taking the supplements out of fear of iron toxicity and negative log term effects of metal overdose. However, my energy decreases, I feel faint, and I experience negative psychological issues (especially in the days following menstruation) and eventually I return to supplementation. I am a clean eating vegan but I have never been athletic and easily become exhausted with overexertion and burnout easily in intensely mentally stressful situations. Can you please advise whether you think it's safe to be on a 150% RDA iron supplement for a condition like this or am I right to be concerned with the negative consequences of lifelong iron intake? Can you please tell me what you recommendations for someone with Thalassemia (and Gilbert's Syndrome) because research seems limited on the topic? THANK YOU!

Sue: Hi Dr Cabral, I’m a big fan and love listening to your podcasts whenever I have a down moment. Thank you for doing them and helping so many. I am a 38 yr old female and have dealt with Lichen Sclerosus of the vulva, perineum and anus for about 11 years now. It’s so uncomfortable it’s become crazy making. It’s impacted my ability to get a continuous scratch-free night’s sleep for years. Do you have any non-hormonal and non-steroid recommendations to help with the root cause or even the itchiness? My health background: Age 3 kidney failure from e. Coli and believe to have contracted Hep C while in the hospital, age 17 (1996) diagnosed with Hep C, age 20 got Lyme disease from a tick but cleared with heavy antibiotics, age 27 diagnosed with Lichen Sclerosus, age 33-34 forty-week Triple Therapy treatment for Hep C (Interferon, Ribavirin & Telaprivir), age 34 cleared Hep C, Thyroid tests all come back showing normal functioning. Sue (Bavaria, Germany)

 

Anita: Hi there, I'm wondering if there are any podcasts on the topic of neuropathy. My dad has neuropathy and I'd like to know if there is anything he might be able to do to help his health. I did a search on the website and nothing came up so I thought I'd check with you anyway. Thank you! Anita

 

Martin: Hello from the UK Dr. Cabral, I really enjoy your podcasts and find your approach to health and wellness very refreshing. Please can I ask your views on my 10 year old daughter. As a baby sometimes she would vomit immediately after drinking her formula milk (not just a little, almost the whole bottle would come back up). She was also quite windy. Randomly at the age of 3 or 4 she started to suffer from really bad constipation at one time she went almost 2 weeks without a bowel movement. The Doctors and Nurses who dealt with this treated us like we fed her a diet with no fibre which was not true. The Doctors didn’t seem interested in finding out why this happened and she was placed on a Medicine called Movicol infant which seemed to help (Here’s a Link to the product details which terrify me as I read them now – She was on a child version of this daily for approx. 12 months). However we found the single biggest factor in curing this was removing drinks with artificial sweeteners. From the ages of 2-5 she’d get ill with a cold in early October and be constantly ill until the following February. Today and over the past year or so her stomach looks bloated and feels hard. Sometimes after eating she’ll burp or gurgle a little which she finds embarrassing. Her bowel movements seem to be very slow too (not always daily). To give as much information as possible, her diet includes most everyday foods including gluten and dairy but also a good mix of vegetables and fruit. We had a food sensitivity test carried out last year (on a strand of her hair), it came back negative on Gluten and Dairy but suggested she had sensitivity to Carrots, plums and a couple of other vegetables. I know this is quite a lot to consider, but I feel there is an accumulation of signs which point to an underlying food/ digestion problem. If you have time, I’d really appreciate your advice on where to start with testing and healing. Also, if applicable how to approach an elimination diet on a child as I don’t want to give her a complex about certain foods. You might wonder why it’s taken so long to get to this. Well truth be told, I’m only just starting to join up what I see and wondering if there might be a link, rather than an unconnected sequence of conditions. This is coupled with the fact that Doctors don’t seem interested in finding out the cause of health conditions, they either can’t find anything wrong or give drugs to treat the symptoms rather than dealing with the cause. Many thanks for your time, Martin

In the not too distant past I used to coach some very high level Olympian, World Champion, and professional athletes...

It was a lot of fun, but the stakes were much higher - A fraction of a second or minor deviation in technique was often the difference between winning and losing...

However, during this time I also began working with special operations military and FBI agent candidates that were looking to pass a unique fitness test that they'd be judged on...

It was the perfect blend of endurance and interval work that would prepare anyone for a survival based situation, which of course is why you had to be able to pass it to get into this elite club...

Believe it or not, even though the years have passed, I've never forgotten about this specific "test" and I've even begun to incorporate it once again into my own exercise routine...

So, on today's #CabralConcept 895 I want to share my high-level training philosophy which you that you can take anywhere in your life... Plus, I want to demonstrate the exact FBI Fitness Survival Test with you to see if you could pass it (let me know if you could or not!) - Enjoy the show!

"Adrenal Fatigue" or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS/CFIDS/POTS) go well beyond simply feeling just tired...

They are deep rooted nervous system, hormone, mitochondrial, and immune imbalances that have even deeper underlying root causes affecting those systems of the body...

This is why it's important to understand what level of fatigue your body is in and how quickly you can turn it around...

The good news is that there is one simple question to ask yourself to understand your level of adrenal fatigue and then a protocol based on that to move you towards perfect health (and abundant energy)!

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 894 to find out if you are just tired or if you're suffering from a level of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome that you never knew was there - Enjoy the show!

One of the hardest things about preventative natural health is to worry about something that you can't see...

And that's exactly the problem with trying to combat electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs)...

This "electrosmog" is everywhere we go and the emissions from cell phones, modems, smart meters, baby monitors, white noise machines, and thousands of other devices are affecting our cells at a DNA level...

This can lead to symptoms of fatigue, fibromyalgia, headaches, brain fog, inflammation, pain, hormone disruption, and even cancer...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 983 on the hidden dangers of EMFs and what you can do to block their harmful effects - Enjoy the show!

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!

Kathryn:  Hi Dr. Cabral, I love your podcast and I'm working through listening to ALL episodes. Everything you say I can find studies to back up and I trust your opinion more than any other doctor. To get to my question, I am a 33 year old female and do Ironman triathlons. I eat an extremely healthy plant based vegan diet. Even while training I stick to natural sources for fuel. I eat raw dried fruit bars and bananas for calories in replace of sport gels, for hydration I mix sea salt in water with lemon juice and honey as well as drink raw coconut water. My question is, what supplements do you recommend I should be taking daily to support my training? Right now I supplement with B-Complex liquid, vitamin D, a Probiotic, and Magnesium. I tried taking Iron for about 8 weeks but I had bad reactions to it so I stopped. I've thought about taking a Vitamin C and a daily multi vitamin and I've thought about trying your nutritional support shake, but I'm afraid I'll have a reaction to some of the ingredients as I have a very sensitive stomach. I usually can't digest processed foods. Right now in lieu of a vitamin C supplement I add Camu Camu powder to my morning smoothie, but that is only about 4 days a week. I know the recommendations for the average person, but with the training I put my body through with15 hours a week of swimming, biking, running, strength, and yoga, I probably need more nutrients, I just don't know what and how much. I appreciate all that you do and I look forward to listening to your answer. I've heard you say you work with a lot of athletes so I believe you will have a better answer for me than the average naturopath doctor. Thank you!

Em:  Hi Dr. Cabral - my mom was recently diagnosed with diabetes. How do I get her to adopt a healthier lifestyle? She eats unhealthy and usually snacks right before going to sleep. Thanks!

 

Chu: Hi Dr Cabral, I am 37 years old and I've been having random twitches all over my body and dealing with ED issues for over a couple of years now. My doc wanted to put me on anxiety medication which I refused due to the side effect. I have a vata body type and yes I have been going through some stressful situation but nothing excessive. I was just wondering if this might be due a vitamin/mineral deficiency or something else? I recently started supplementing with zinc and B-complex. Also, I just started your 7-day detox a couple of days ago and was looking at purchasing the omega 3 but a friend informed me that Krill oil is better. They do both provide the same benefits correct? Thank you for your time.

 

Christian: Hello Dr. Cabral and team, I have many questions, but will keep this message succinct. From listening to your podcast, I am almost certain that I have some kind of fungal or yeast overgrowth happening in my body. I recently had a CT scan that showed “tree-in-bud” nodules on my lungs, which is typically seen as marker of some type of fungal infection, furthering my suspicion of an overgrowth (possibly Candida?). I am going to see a pulmonologist specialist at UCSF in two days, and I am afraid they may want to take an open lung biopsy to confirm any suspicions of infections they may have, however I am almost 100% certain that a fungal overgrowth is occurring (I have other “symptoms” like random skin rashes, white coating on tongue, memory fatigue, sporadically intense sugar cravings, etc etc..). Would an organic acids test be able to show if I have a fungal overgrowth? Or is there any other test, besides biopsy, that could help my doctors at UCSF confirm their suspicions of fungal infection? Personally, I have known people to do your Candida cleanse protocol, and their “symptoms” cleared up fantastically. I would be willing to get on that same protocol, but am unsure if my western medicine doctors will understand my concerns of not wanting to have a biopsy done and will be trusting enough of my own suspicions. Can you tell me the method/s that you would recommend to test for Candida/fungal overgrowth? Also, can you recommend what i should say to my doctors at UCSF to better express my concerns that this “infection” is more likely an overgrowth that could be minimized or suppressed through detox and diet change? Thanks in advance, Christian

 

Logan: Hello Dr. Cabral, love your podcast and how helpful you are to your listeners. I am a triathlete and I have been struggling with a necrotic (dead) sesamoid bone now for about 6 months. I haven't really been able to run since around that time. I had an MRI done and the Dr recommended working with a Physical Therapist who specializes in custom orthotics to help alleviate the pain around the sesamoid. I am currently still working with the PT, but we have tried 4 different kinds of orthotics, none of which relieving the pain even while walking. Do you have any recommendations on how to heal the area? I do not believe that the bone will come back to life, but am not certain if there are other things I could be doing for it. I have read horror story's online about how unsuccessful the surgery can be. All I want is to be able to run again and compete in triathlons, but at the bare minimum have a pain free walk. Thank you 

Meagan: It would be great to be advised by you re my wellness. My name’s Meagan I’m 31 years old and I live in Brisbane, Australia. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease 11 years ago and in 2011 I had an ileostomy constructed and in 2013 I had my large bowel/rectum/anus removed and my ileostomy has become permanent (To this day I have ongoing pelvic issues such as Pain and bottom wound discharge from post op complications and infection from 2013) I also have localised psoriasis (over my knuckles, navel), endometriosis, bilateral hydrosalpinx of my fallopian tubes, and bouts of anxiety. I’m a symptomatic carrier of duchenne muscular dystrophy and suffer from bouts of myositis and have chronically elevated CPK levels. My specialist advised me this year that I could cease my crohns medications due to good control of the disease. I’ve also weaned off my antidepressant completely a few weeks ago. The only medications I’m on are the contraceptive pill for endometriosis, krill oil, 3 monthly b12 injections and I use doterra essential oils for support. I use low tox/natural products to clean, I make my own liquid hand soaps, body scrubs, mouthwash, use organic toothpaste, natural deodorant paste and toxin free shampoo, I use a menstrual cup. I rarely wear makeup. I avoid buying processed food/I try to avoid preservatives etc, So I’m quite committed to looking after myself and lowering my toxic load. Concerns: 1) I’m constantly tired every day and lack energy (I don’t even remember the last time I wasn’t tired) and 2) despite all these positive things regarding my health, I still have low grade inflammation in my body (as per stool calprotectin level and crp blood result). Note: I haven’t had a crohns flare since my last surgery, My psoriasis hasn’t flared for a long time and I use essential oils to manage it, but I guess I’m wondering if it’s my endometriosis? My aim is to eventually stop taking the pill but I’m not sure if stopping it will worsen my endo. I’m certain my other contributing factors are anxiety/unbalanced mental health right now, stress, going to bed way too late at night, and higher concentration of pollution where I live. I guess why I’m emailing is because I want to know if you have any recommendations for: - controlling inflammation - what tests I should get done to provide a full body assessment of what areas need to be rebalanced (I hear you mentioning organic acids testing for candida screening, leaky gut screening, and investigation of food sensitivities on alot of your podcasts) - would a detox be recommended? - endometriosis control and management off the pill - recommendations on a functional medicine doctor/any other professionals Thank you so much for your time, Regards Meagan

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:

Cameron: Hi Dr Cabral, my name is Cameron, I'm a 42 year old male from Melbourne, Australia. I discovered your podcast a few months ago, after searching for answers to my medical issues, and since then I've been hooked. You've opened my eyes to the fascinating world of functional medicine, so thank you! My reason for writing is for advice on my Menieres disease that I was diagnosed with about three years ago, after a couple of severe vertigo episodes, along with tinnitus and hearing loss in my right ear. I have seen several ENT specialists, and had an MRI which came up clear, and done various tests to help confirm the diagnosis. As a result, I've been put on a low sodium diet, been prescribed Serc (betahistine) and a diuretic pill, and been told to also reduce caffeine, alcohol, and stress. I've also tried Ginko Biloba, and several different vitamins. The only medication that has noticeably helped is 2mg Valium pills, taken only when symptoms flare. After more sporadic episodes in the last year, usually lasting for a burst of a few weeks at a time, I had a steroid injection into my inner ear, which appears to have stopped the vestibular problems at least for now, however, the hearing problems and tinnitus remain. Hoping to find more help, and after hearing your podcasts, I started seeing a naturopath, who also used to be a pharmacist. She suggested an IGG food sensitivity test, which came back showing a strong sensitivity to egg and dairy. Up until then I loved eggs, and consumed whey protein powder on a regular basis around weight training. I'm currently on a moderate detox, and going to the gym more often to try to help with blood flow. I'd love to hear your thoughts on Menieres disease, and any suggestions as to what else you think could help me. It is a miserable condition, which I would do anything to get rid of. Once again, thanks so much for all you do, you're an inspiration, and I'm very glad I discovered your podcast. Regards, Cameron

 

Judy: Consumer Reports did another testing for lead found in popular protein powders. It was particularly high in vegan proteins which are ones I would be more inclined to use, so I am very concerned. I am currently using the Cabral Daily Nutritional Support Powder which happens to be vegan as well. Is your product tested for heavy metals, and if so, what were the results of the test? I appreciate what you do to help support our health and I was hoping that as you continue to make enhancements to your other product lines, I would love to see more vegan friendly protocols.

 

Stacey: Hi Doc, I would love to know what your West coast book tour stops are. Would you be able to give me the locations in Los Angeles/Santa Monica if these are on your stops?

 

Alex: Hello, I’m a loyal customer (completed DCD, using daily Cabral supplements, completed sleep hormone testing and sleep protocol) and enjoy listening podcasts. My question is about varicose veins (not spider veins but deeper veins). I have very big, bulging veins on one leg and less severe case on the other. They first appeared over 30 years ago after my 1st pregnancy. 8 years ago I had a laser closure procedure that was not successful as it never repaired my veins and they continue to be very enlarged. Here are my 2 questions:- what would you recommend for treating or preventing further development of varicose vein? - i’m doing spin classes 2 - 3 times a week. Can that contribute to the enlarged veins? Should I avoid this type of exercise? And what is recommended? Thank you!

 

Jenny: Hi Dr Cabral, I've recently had my annual pap smear and have been diagnosed with high-risk HPV, without abnormal cells. Could you let me know what's the best way to get rid of the virus as fast as possible? Which of your supplements would you recommend? I'd like to add that I eat a very healthy, mostly plant-based, diet and supplement with Vitamin C, Zinc, Selenium, Magnesium, B-12 and Vitamine D. I also drink green juices daily, and use superfoods like chlorella, spirulina, maca, Ashwagandha, etc. But I would love to hear your suggestions on what more I could do, as I value your opinion more than my doctor’s. Very muck looking forward to your feedback!

 

Susanna: Dear Dr. Cabral, I listen to your podcast every single day, and it has changed my life! I did your Candida protocol, and finally found relief after years of gut issues. Thank you for that! Now I have a question about a different health issue: I’m 41 and have been dealing with PCOS for 10 years now. I’ve managed to keep it under control with healthy diet and supplementation, but after 3 years of having it back, my period went missing again.. :( Which supplements/protocols do you recommend for balancing the female hormones, and hopefully getting my period back? Thank you for everything, you’re my hero! :) 

Alana: Hi there... I see you offer detox’s etc, however some people reviews stated they works with you on a program. Do you offer online services, like a meal plans and workout plan together? I live in Canada and was wondering if I could work with you In order to lose about 15 pounds. I’m a 41 year old female and would love your help!

 

Yasmine: Hello Dr. Cabral, I love eating smoothie bowls for breakfast. I usually add plant milk, vegan protein, avocado, the greens, nuts, seeds and superfoods to it, and it's an easy way to get all my nutrients in. I know you're a big fan of smoothies for breakfast, so you are the perfect person to ask: is blending the foods as healthy as eating them whole? Does it make nutrients more or less absorbable or effective. Is blended fibre (in flax seeds for example) still as good for regularity as the whole ones? Thank you very much for your answer!  

Clemens: Hi Dr Cabral, Thank you for everything! You've been a tremendous help. Now, my problem are my calves. They're kind of bulky anyway but by the end of the day more often than not they are just so swollen. They are heavy and it makes me tired. Also it looks really bad and my pants don't fit anymore. For the life of me I can't figure out what it is. I reduced my water, carb and dairy intake and that seems to help a little. Definitely looking forward for your food sensitivity test coming to Europe! Is there anything else I should consider? Best of wishes and thanks again Clemens

I've got a fun #FridayReview lined up for you today with everything from what we have coming up over the next 2 weeks to a plant known for stinging you with serotonin!

First up, we'll be covering a brand new piece of research on how timing just 15-minutes of cardio after learning a new skill can dramatically increase your retention and processing...

Next, I feel I have to give fair warning about the trend of taking random supplements based on genetic mutations that may or may not be presenting themselves in a person's present life...

And finally, I'll be bringing you my super-nutrient of the week which today focuses on a plant known to reduce inflammation, allergies, joint pain, and prostate issues...

Tune into the #CabralConcept 889 podcast for all the details - Enjoy the show!

Ben Pakulski is a living legend when it comes to transforming your body to the highest level imaginable...

However, he's also a bit of an enigma in the fact that he spends a lot of his time talking about how to create change on the inside before you ever think about shaping the outer physique you desire...

Now of course, on this guest interview I did ask Ben about his exercise training techniques and he was nice enough to share and breakdown his "S.S.I" formula that gives his clients and unfair advantage in the gym...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 888 for this fun and informative conversation with the BodyBuilding Yogi, Ben Pakulski - Enjoy the show!

If you were to go back just a couple hundred of years, you'd be surprised at the various rituals people did on a yearly basis in order to stay healthy...

You'd probably be even more surpirsed to hear that these had been handed down to them for thousands of years from their ancestors that knew the secrets to staying well...

And, I think most people would be shocked to find out that all of these ancient practices are now being proven by medical science and lab testing to be accurate and necessary...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 887 to discover the 4 different cleanses you must do yearly to stay healthy - Enjoy the show!

With an internet full of different diet plans telling us what's safe to eat and what's not it can be ridiculously difficult to figure out who or what is right...

Besides that, we have a lot of plans that are meant to work in the short-term (and do work), but fail miserably in terms of long-term health and body transformation...

One of the reasons for this is that diet programs that eliminate certain "healthy" foods by putting them on their "NO list," causes you to miss out on their extremely valuable nutrients that you need to prevent dis-ease and cancer...

That's why on today's #CabralConcept 886 I want to share with you 3 so-called "unhealthy" foods that you should be eating on a regular basis to get well, transform you body, and live longer - Enjoy the show!

In my opinion the Rain Barrel Effect can and should used in every area of your life...

Whether it be mental or physical wellness, weight loss, or anti-aging issues it's important to be aware of what's building up and causing stress in your life...

In my opinion, we often give out far too much advice in our culture that revolves around what more we should be doing or adding to our life...

That's why in today's #CabralConcept 885 I want to share with you one technique to raise your energy and vibration levels by doing the opposite - Enjoy the show!

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!

Carla: I have PCOS, and possibly endometriosis & some type of thyroid dysfunction (these two haven't officially been diagnosed, but I have symptoms that have lead me to think I may have them). As I learn more about my condition and how to heal myself through lifestyle & supplements, I also try to get rid of toxins, do detoxes, eat well & exercise. However, I've worked with fire resistant garments for almost 15 years of my life and recently I learned that fire retardants are endocrine disruptors. I'm not able to immediately leave that field of work. Is there a way I can protect myself? I recently started wearing gloves (but they are plastic which is possibly not ideal either) and a cotton mask to keep from breathing in the fibers. What would you recommend? I'm not sure exactly HOW bad it is to continue working like this or if it's something I definitely need to get away from as soon as possible. Thank you for any guidance!

Kate: Hi Dr Cabral, I had my gallbladder removed 10 years ago but didn't drastically alter my diet until about 3 years. I eat a mainly paleo lifestyle (with occasional legumes), and I've discovered through recent bloodwork that I have deficiencies in a number of areas. Specifically with Vitamin D and also with my thyroid (I am well outside the "optimal" range but technically still "normal"). I take 3000 IU Vitamin D each day but after researching saw that having no gall bladder can lead to the inability to absorb fat-soluble vitamins as well as possibly affect thyroid and even cholesterol. Is there a way to overcome this? If I were to start taking your daily digestive enzymes, could that help my vitamin absorption? Thank you!

Julie: Dear Dr. Stephen Cabral, A friend of mine suggested your podcast last week and I have binged listened ever since. I have dealt with different issues such as Candida and fatigue. I overcame Candida with an elimination diet. Or maybe so I have thought… I have had my thyroid tested and it is normal. All my markers are normal except they found that I have Kidney disease. They were not able to find the root cause of it… My glomerular filtration rate is currently at 46 mL/min. The nephrologist stated that since I am an athletic build that is why. I am currently dealing with mood and fatigue. So if you can point me in the right direction of testing and why, that would be very helpful. Thank you! Julie Johnson 

Jill: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have a friend who has achalasia. She has had the balloon dilation procedure done 2-3 times. It often works for a time and then she has difficulty getting food down her esophagus. I'd love to hear your thoughts on diet info related to achalasia, the possibility of overcoming it, and any steps she could take to find health/healing. My understanding is that it's an autoimmune disease ... and can't be "cured" ... ? But I know you overcame Addison's. Any help/direction would be so amazing! Thank you so much for these house calls!!!

Claude: Hi! Don't know if you've already talked about this on your podcast: "Elderley's falls" (sarcopenia)?Is there anything i can do for my 93 years old dad?Thank you from Quebec.Canada

Elizabeth: Dear Dr. Cabral - I found your podcast about 6-8 months ago after you appeared on EOFire. My daughter was "cured" from her gut, thyroid, chronic EBV through holistic/funcational/naturopathy and it literally gave her a life again! (She lives in Florida and we live in the middle of the country. )So thankful! But today, I'm writing about my husband. Genetically he is challenged. By that I mean that everyone in his family is/was obese. His 2 brothers died in their 50's, (one from a PE and one from untreated diabetes) His two living sisters are in their late-50's and early 60's. One is riddled with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and both are overweight. His father died of Lymphoma at 72 and his mother from congestive heart failure at 82At 40 my husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer, but considered cured from that. At 46, he developed progressive hip pain and the joint was so eroded that he had to undergo a hp replacement at 47. All the nsaids and steroids that he took for that and for years prior to that for a football (knee) injury lead to acute renal failure before the replacement was done. His knee was replaced about a year ago. He has a stressful job and works about 7 days a week. He was also diagnosed with osteopenia at 46 and used Forteo for about 6 months, but I just wasn't comfortable with him continuing that. Since then he has been on Prolea. Uses supplements from the Shalkee Corporation. Daily vitamin, D3, Calcium, Iron and CoQ10. About 2-3 years ago he began gaining weight and becoming more and more fatigued. But our diet had not changed and in fact has gotten cleaner and healthier due to my desire to feel my family whole foods For 25 years he maintained a weight of 165 +/- 3 pounds. He's gained about 35 pounds; mostly around his umbilical area, but also in his groin area. He is tired ALL the time, cold, his eyes are puffy every morning, decreased libido, frequent nose bleeds, (but only after blowing his nose) decreased muscle mass and seems to catch every cold virus that comes around. He's always had periodic bouts of HSV II which seem to be worse with increased stress. He had extensive lab testing done last fall through Veridia Diagnostics. I would be happy to send these to you. Cardiac inflammation is a little high with hs-CRP 2.1 and Homocysteine (10). Food Allergies (IgE) were all negative, but IgA was not done. Lipid; Total Cholesterol 217 Triglycerides 100, HDL 70, LDL 141, Apo B 104. Fasting glucose 97, Insulin 7, A1C 5.3, Cortisol 11.2, Adiponectin 25.6, Leptin 13.9 Ferritin 156, Vitamin D 66, Magnesium 2.2, Creatine 1.3 Cystatin C 1.07 TSH 2.0, T4 5.3, Free T4 1.0, T3 1.23, Free T3 3.0, Thyrodglobuin antibody 10.6, Thyroid peroxidase antibody 12.93, Testosterone 640.6, FTI 31.7, SHBG 70.2, Estadiol 29.6 I think we have a thyroid problem, even though his labs are "normal". What should we do next? Sorry this got so long, but I really value your opinion. He would like to feel more like himself again and lose the weight. I would like to have a more energetic husband. Thank you in advance, Dr. Cabral!

Lizzie: Hello! My husband has had a persistent rash on his face that seemed to come out of no where. In January it started. It looks like small tiny pimples and red dots. Forhead, nose, cheeks. Subsides slightly and always comes back. His face is not itchy and it is most prominent when out of shower. Then in Feb his stomach started becoming itcy, more patches of dry skin, not rash-like on his face. He also has had toe-fungus for years, from sports in college. What could be causing this rash and how can he work to get rid of it? He eats very little protein, when he does, crappy chicken. Lots of veggies and he does have a massive sweet tooth. He is 37 yo. he is also going through a job transition. thank you!

Terri: I just purchased your digestive enzyme. Do I take this 15 min before each meal or only the first meal of the morning? It then works all day with just taking in the morning? Thank you 

Catherine: Hi Stephen, I regularly listen to your podcasts and would love it if you could help me out. Here’s a bit of information about myself, I’m 24, came off the pill just over 2 years ago and got quite bad acne all over my face (got worse and worse over time). Previous to coming off the pill, roughly about 1-2 years before, I became intolerant to dairy. In the past year I have been getting reoccurring yeast infections ("lady regions"). I have just completed a 3 month parasite cleanse, saw lots come out in my poop and I feel much better for doing it. However I am still getting yeast infections, I have figured out I have candida / gut issues. Would you recommend any other tests apart from the acids test? I’m not sure if my hormones could still be imbalanced? I have cut out a lot of foods that I used to eat such as bread, refined sugar etc but it’s not enough to kill whatever yeast/bacteria is inside me. Thank you

Annie:  Hello, I have been suffering with halitosis for around 15 years. I have been to every specialist that there is. I have even had my stomach biopsy and I have been to several dentist and gum specialist to rule out oral health care and everyone tells me I am fine and they cannot find anything wrong. My breath smells like feces and I didn't know what else to do? Please tell me where to start. Do you except health insurance?

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:

Ali: I’m applying for the private concierge membership because I want one-on-one consultation with Dr. Cabral for a complicated situation that I’m in... I noticed that Julia and Caitlin are almost half the cost of seeing Dr. Cabral… is that cost difference a reflection of their ability to diagnose as well as Dr. Cabral, or is it more so a reflection of popularity because he’s of course the man behind the magic of all of this? Thanks! Ali

 

Libby: I’ve been listening to your podcasts for a little while, I can’t find you addressing this question, and thought it would be beneficial for many people. My daughter is almost 13 and is struggling with acne and has had some learning disabilities. I was listening to you suggest that they both are gut related. She was on antibiotics a lot as a baby/toddler. She had reoccurring ear infections and strep. She then had tubes, adenoids out, and tonsils out. What would you suggest for an almost teenager in getting her gut healthy?

 

Annie: I'm dating someone who has prostatitis. He's 30 and has seen a couple of MD's who all tell him not to worry about it. He used to drink quite a bit and has recently stopped which his doctors said is a good thing. He has pain in his low back and fell on his coccyx when he was little. We are working to strengthen his feet and spine, but the pain wakes him up at night when he changes positions and when he lays on a flat surface. He saw an acupuncturist that said sex is good for him and there isn't pain with orgasm. Is there anything else that you can recommend that he do to help remedy this? Thank you for your insight and all you do.

 

Terry: Am I getting enough water when I only consume between 30 - 40 ounces of water per day? If I try to force myself to drink more water, it only feels like I have a fish bowl in my belly. I ONLY drink natural spring water or filtered zero water with concentrace mineral drops. No soda, no alcohol. I have organic green tea once or twice per week. I feel great and have zero dehydration symptoms I know of. I will drink more water if I go hiking, but, it's still not remotely close to 1oz per body weight. Once again, I feel great, but, if I try to drink more water, I don't feel as good. I've always been this way. Urine was clear until I started taking the active B complex vitamins, now it is Yellow due to the B vitamins. I am vata body type all the way. Male, 47, 6 ft tall, 125 and cannot gain weight regardless of how much I work out or eat. I recently saw a local naturopath doctor. No sibo, candida, nor parasites. Lots of food intolerance due to leaky gut, but already healing from that with help from her and from you. I am a huge fan of your show. Thank you for all you do!

 

Peg: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you so much for all of the incredible information you share on your podcasts each day; I’ve learned so much from you over the last year and still find episodes I haven’t heard yet. I’ve also recommended your podcast to countless friends for all types of advise. I’ve searched your archives to see if you’ve answered any questions about Bell’s Palsy and I haven’t been able to find anything on this topic. 3 Months ago after a long plane flight I woke up to 1/2 of my face totally paralyzed. I was in a foreign country and not near a hospital so I searched online for answers as to what may have happened and determined it was likely Bell’s palsy. I contacted my pcp who prescribed a course of antivirals plus prednisone. Even though I did not want to take either, I could not find any other suggestions online so I tried them both without improvement. Once I returned to the states I saw my doctor who confirmed I have Bell’s Palsy, but only based on a clinical diagnosis, no MRI. Can you please tell me what causes Bell’s and what I can do to help to improve the symptoms? I’ve regained partial function in areas of my face but I far from back to normal. My doctor said it can take up to 6 months to go away and has no suggestions for treatment in the meantime. I am anxious to do something to regain my normal face back! So far I’ve done a few things on my own: Acupunture. Oral B12. Alpha Lipoic Acid. Please let me know if you can help, or if you have treatment suggestions. Thank you so much, Peg

 

Lily: Hi! I am writing to you with a question regarding the blood panel test Dr. Cabral recommended on his podcast, Female Panel by Life Extension. I have been experiencing amenorrhea for about a year as well as persistent digestive issues (constipation, bloating), anxiety and now brain fog. My gynecologist sent me for some very basic bloodwork a few months back (FSH, LH, TSH, DHEA-S) but besides a DHEA-S level of 498 she said I seemed to be "in range". I have been recommended to take Spironolactone/birth control but I am focusing on addressing the underlying stressor/s that are contributing to these symptoms. In order to get the best results with the blood panel, Life Extension recommends pre-menopausal females to get blood drawn on day 21 of their cycle. Being that I have amenorrhea, do you have any further recommendations for when I get the bloodwork done? Thank you for any help you can provide, sorry this was so much at once! I really appreciate all you do. Sincerely, Lily

 

Tallulah: Hello! I love the information you provide and have been seeing some great benefits from your CBD Oil. I am basically a mess, physically, right now and my quality of life is definitely not great. After being healthy my entire life (aside from stomach issues), I have been diagnosed with the following: Bradycardia, Metabolic alkalosis, hypoglycemia, raynaud's disease, leukopenia, amenorrhea (haven't menstruated in 4 years). I spent time in a treatment center for an eating disorder but I was really just eliminating foods over time that were hurting my stomach (and I enjoy working out—wasn't trying to lose weight). I should mention that I haven't had any kind of illness such as a cold or flu for over 10 years so at least my immune system seems to be working! At this point, I can barely eat or drink anything without bloating and pain. I have eaten clean for many years—pescatarian—organic, lots of vegetables, pasteurized eggs and no dairy or gluten. I also grill or bake all of my vegetables to help with digestion—even lettuce—never raw. I make my own soups and meals so as to avoid added salt or hidden gluten. I also don't take any medications other than Vitamin D, Biotin, Iron, zinc and magnesium supplements (clean versions) and unfortunately, miralax because I don't seem to be able to have a bm without it, which makes everything worse. At this point, I don't know what to do but suspect your Candida & Bacterial Protocol could help. Does it require fasting in any way? I am concerned about eliminating even more foods and losing more weight and getting lightheaded. Also, I would desperately love to do all of your tests to finally get some answers but know that I can't afford them right now. Do you have any recommendations for my situation aside from the tests? Hopefully, someday I can take them. I am no longer going to traditional doctors as it has cost a lot of money, hasn't helped and goes against most of what I believe in for how to heal the body. I appreciate any advice you can provide. Thank you so much for all of the help you are providing people. You are literally, saving lives. Thank you!

Laura: Hi Stephen, I love your podcast and everything you're doing. I've had increasing lower abdominal pain over the last 12 months. It's becoming unbearable and really affecting my day to day life. I'm extremely healthy and lived a balanced lifestyle. I avoid dairy and gluten. 2 weeks ago I had the laparoscopy for the removal of endometriosis but None was found. I got my period this month for the first time in a year. I am not under weight or living I highly stressed life. A year ago I would have been very stressed though. My blood tests are great according to gymno and doctor and I monitor all the things that could potentially affect or cause these pains. There's no common foods that I am aware of. What questions me is the pain comes on around 5pm and stays for 3-4 hours. Generally I have lunch around 1 and don't snack at work or really eat until dinner. The pain seems to ease after I eat. The pain is shark, in the middle of my lower abdomen and causes severe bloating. Could I have a parasite or something causing this pain when my stomach is potentially empty? I'm exhausted and gutted that even after an operation I don't have any answers! If I was to take any of your tests what would you recommend? Any advice will help I don't even know where to begin now. Thank you so much

Welcome back to the #FridayReview and we’ve got a great one today!

First up I’ll be sharing with you another (even cleaner) vegan gelato to enjoy on those hot summer month flex meal days... 
 
Then, I go back and forth over some dubious medical research on eye heath that shows how poorly done many of these “scientific research” studies are... 
 
Lastly, I reveal this week’s super-nutrient that is referred to as the “Hormone & Adrenal Vitamin” because of its impact on energy and hormone production...
 
It’s been a fun week on the #CabralConcept podcast and I hope you enjoy today’s show!

A "cheat meal" or flex meal isn't supposed to be viewed as a bad thing or that you've done something wrong...

You haven't - But, that doesn't mean there aren't real repercussions to drinking alcohol or eating some of your favorite "unhealthy" processed foods...

In our culture we love to kinda-of, sorta-of, twist the truth to make certain beliefs fit into our dogma...

And this couldn't be more true than in the world of health & nutrition...

For example, I have no problem with making fun delicious recipes, but do you really think Paleolithic people were baking "Paleo" almond flour cupcakes?

All kidding aside, on today's #CabralConcept 880 I list the 10 unhealthy health foods (not paleo cupcakes ; ) that I won't eat or recommend because they're deceptively horrible for your health - Enjoy the show!

The 1st step in learning to eat better for your body is to discover the power of whole food (mainly plant-based) nutrition...

The 2nd step is to go deeper into the nutrients in whole food and how that can effect your overall wellness, weight loss, and aging... 

The 3rd step is to uncover your bio-individuality and finally realize how some foods (even "healthy foods") may react negatively in our body based on our current condition in life...

For some of those unique inflammatory health foods check out today's #CabralConcept 879 for what food group to eliminate to reduce allergies, brain fog, bloating, and burning - Enjoy the show!

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!

Alex: Hello Dr. Cabral, I’m a long time listener of your podcasts, have done DCD and sleep protocol. Thank you for educating the community, i’ve learned so much! I’m interested to find out when women should request a bone density test? Is it driven by the age (50s ?) or by having any specific symptoms? I’ve searched the podcasts but didn’t find any reference to this topic. Thank you!

Donna: When I do Russian Twists, I hear an echoey sound as I inhale/exhale when I twist from side to side. It's what I would imagine someone with asthma might sound like. I also have muffled hearing in both ears, mild stuffiness, and a little pressure in my forehead. I do not experience this with rowing, sprints, weight lifting, jump rope, or anything else. Could this be a symptom to a food sensitivity? I eat friends uit, vegetables, lean meat, salmon, seeds/nuts (NO Peanuts), No dairy except Kerry Gold Butter. I eat eggs from free range chickens. Any thoughts on this? (You are welcome to resend this pacific question if needed)

Nicole: Hi there! I'm not sure which test(s) I should be taking. I'm 32 year old woman, do resistance training 4-5x per week, am about 13% body fat and am considered healthy. I eat pretty high quality food 90% of the time but do have the occasional treat (gluten and sugar, some dairy). I suffer from chronic acne on my chin (prominent around my period but I typically have redness and inflammation all month long). I am SO over it. After listening to the podcast, I may have some form of hypothyroidism. I really want to optimize my health, continue to feel amazing as I age and get rid of this acne I've been battling for a few years (after I had my son 7 years ago). If you can suggest which test(s) I should consider, I'd appreciate it. Thank you!

Taylor: Hi Dr. Cabral, I recently did the Candida and Bacterial Overgrowth Protocol and I stuck to it very well the whole time. I was feeling amazing around the 60 day mark. Around day 80 I started getting really bad gas pains, burping a lot in between meals as well as right after, and it has been going on constantly for 3 month. My digestive issues were never this bad and I am feeling unsure about what to do next. I also took 2 rounds of the Healthy Belly and have been on the clean gut probiotic and that hasn’t seemed to change anything. I did some food sensitivity testing as well and nothing is seeming to show up. Do you have any recommendations on what I should do? I appreciate it!

Lindsay: Hello Dr. Cabral. Thanks for all you do to bring overall health and wellness to the masses! 5 years ago I was diagnosed with post-partum depression and put on Lexapro (antiidepressant). My symptoms continued, even after seeking therapy and being put on the highest dose of Lexapro and eventually adding Wellbutrin, at its highest dosage. I struggled with massive downs which left me unable to leave bed for days and frequent suicidal thoughts, terrible irritable and an inability to cope with anything, and extreme dependence on outside stimuli to find happiness. Eventually it led to a referral to a psychiatrist who diagnosed me as bi-polar. Since being put on valproic acid (depakote) my symptoms have been much more manageable. I have been able to lower my dosage of both of my anti depressants, yet I still do take them. My question is - where do you stand on the use of pharmaceuticals in mental health? Would one be able to alter their chemical makeup through diet, supplements, lifestyle? I feel so great now that I am more balanced, but would ultimately love to not rely on pharmaceuticals. I should add that I take Vitamin D, Bs, multi, Fish Oil, Calcium-Magnesium-Zinc. I recently purchased a light box to sit under in the mornings for about 30 minutes, even though I live in a decently sunny area.

Alisha: How does Lower back pain relate to low thyroid function?

Mason: Hello! I love your podcast and everything you talk about so much. My question for you is this. I college student, and I just turned 20. It's been just over a year now that I haven't gotten my period.Within this past year of losing my period, I went away to college which caused a lot of stress to me, and I started to develop more of a plant based diet. I am not fully plant based, as I do eat meat and eggs every once and a while but not very often. I have been to my primary doctor about this. He did some blood work, and all of my hormone levels are normal. I have a pelvic ultra sound scheduled in May. In the mean time what should I do? Do you recommend that I get any other tests done? Should I incorporate certain foods/supplements to try and get it back? I want to get it back as naturally as possible. Thank you so much!

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:

Brodie: Hi Dr Cabral. I thoroughly enjoy listening to your podcasts and really appreciate the knowledge that you share. I am travelling to India for approximately one month this year. I am worried about falling sick whilst I am there from food or other sources. Can you suggest some key supplements and natural first aid products that would be useful for my trip? I am not based in America and unfortunately cannot afford to purchase your products and then pay for shipping fees on top of the cost (I have already inquired with your team about this). I have previously listened to one of your podcasts suggesting that low stomach acid can contribute to some bacteria illness'. I was wondering if a product related to this would be suitable for me to take? I look forward to hearing your suggestions and I would much prefer to use natural products than conventional ones, I am just unsure exactly what to bring. Thank you!

 

Erin: Is it okay to mix the greens powder and the daily nutritional support shake in the morning or should I drink them separately/ at different times? I wasn't sure if it matters or not. Thank you! 

Lauren: Hi Dr. Cabral, I was so excited to find your show! I have been listening to several shows a day and can't seem to get enough. When you speak about functional medicine chronic illnesses both physical and mental seem to make sense and there is so much hope out there for those that suffer from them! I have a question about my younger sister, and was hoping you could provide some insight. My sister is a competitive gymnast and 15 years old. Over the last year she has intermittently complained of shortness of breath. After Christmas she got a cold, followed by influenza (which she tested positive for) and sinus infections and then hand foot and mouth (vs a reaction to the antibiotics she was on for her sinus infection). She was out from school and practice for over 2 weeks.After the illnesses this winter her difficulty breathing became much worse (notably on her floor routine). My mom had just taken her down to Rush in Chicago for testing for an exercise challenge test last week and the test confirmed exercised induced asthma. She also had her IgE preliminary test was negative awaiting on the specific results. She was prescribed an inhaler containing albuterol and steroids taken 2 puffs 20 min prior to practice. I feel like we are just applying a bandaid over a much bigger problem and was wondering if you could shed some insight onto how you may work up this case. Thank you so very much for all you do and for sharing your knowledge with so many others to help improve their quality of life! ~Lauren

PS- no need to share this on the podcast as this is a complete tangent, but I am a small animal veterinarian and starting my journey in a more holistic approach in my practice because of how you and other functional medicine practitioners have inspired me! Animals have more chronic illness and cancer now than ever before.... and its time to start looking for those root causes in them too!

Nancy: Dear Dr. Cabral, Firstly, I’d like to say thank you so much for all your excellent advice and nutritional supplements, both of which have helped me dramatically improve my overall health and energy levels in just a few short months. My question is regarding the prophylactic use of antibiotics post-surgery. I am scheduled for gum graft surgery in a few months, and I know the periodontist will prescribe some antiibiotics afterwards to prevent infection and to ensure the graft doesn’t fail. I was prescribed amoxicillin after my previous gum graft and had horrible side effects (a rash that lasted a month and lots of digestive issues), so I’d really like to avoid taking antibiotics again, especially now that I’ve done the Dr. Cabral Detox and am feeling so much better. I’m wondering if I start taking extra nutritional supplements such as high doses of vitamin C, D and zinc in advance of the surgery and afterwards, would it be sufficient to minimize the risk of infection? If so, what would be the recommended dosages, and would you suggest any other supplements as well? Overall I am quite healthy; I don’t take any medications and rarely get sick, so I think my immune system is pretty decent already. I follow a mainly plant-based diet, and am taking the DNS powder and fruit and vegetable blend daily, along with immune boosting mushrooms like chaga and lion’s mane. Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated! Kind regards, Nancy

 

Katie: Hi Dr. Cabral, I'm a fairly new listener of your podcast and I've found it to be extremely educational and helpful in my journey to improve my health. I was diagnosed about 4 years ago with Triangular Alopecia shortly after taking an antibiotic (when I was 22 my skin drastically changed and I suffered severe breakouts--antibiotics and acne creams where the Dermatologists treatment recommendation). I've had my hormone and thyroid levels tested several times by my Dermatologist and my PCP, all of which came back normal except for my estrogen levels which were slightly low according to my PCP. I've taken Spironolactone, Doxycycline, and Birth Control. My acne is under control but I continue to lose hair around my scalp and on the sides near my ears. I had a biopsy done a couple years ago that showed signs of female pattern hair loss, which my Derm could not make sense of because of my young age and location of the hair loss. After several years of treatment with creams and pharmaceutical drugs failing I decided to see a local CD who also addresses hormone and other imbalances in the body. The tests I did with him showed normal levels for my thyroid but extremely low levels of Estradiol (<0.20), Progesterone (<0.20), and Testosterone (0.20), High Cortisol (12.6), Deficient in Vitamin (B12 13%), and Deficient in Vitamin D. The results confirmed all my symptoms. He recommends I take B Complex vitamins, Vitamin D3, a Multivitamin, B 12 Folate, Progesterone cream (1/4 teaspoon days 12-27 of cycle), and Testosterone Cream (1/2 teaspoon daily). Have you ever connected these imbalances or deficiencies to Alopecia and used this treatment regiment? I am excited to have answers and alternative treatment to Rx but worried about inciting further damage to my body. Sorry for such a lengthy question. Thank you for all your hard work and compassion towards helping people!

Mia: Hi Dr. Cabral! My name is Mia and I’m 27 years old. I’ve struggled with eating issues for 10 years 5 years bulimia and 5 years binge eating disorder. Any tips on how to manage that and control my mind? Also I became a carrier of tuberculosis when I was 13 years old and I had to take isoniazid for nine months. I feel like I’m always tired even though I get good sleep. Would you think that antibiotic contributes to my fatigue and also I have hormonal acne on my neck, jawline and chin. What tests would you recommend for m?!
