The 2nd weekend edition of the Cabral House Call is here!

Here are today's community questions!

 

Carolina: Love listening to all your podcasts! Thanks for all you do and teach us. What are your thoughts on a product called SuperBeets? I am looking to have more energy and eventually not need coffee in the mornings.

 

Carlos: What is the best way(s) to fix an anterior pelvic tilt? Thanks in advance for your help!!

 

Patrick: I know you're not a fan of coffee/caffeine, but I'm curious-- is it caffeine that makes coffee detrimental or the compounds and makeup of coffee itself. Is drinking decaf OK?

 

Lisa: Hi Stephen I suffer with a form of migraine where I get a dull ache on the right side of my head and brain fog. I find this quite debilitating. The Dr has prescribed sumatriptan which works, but I would like to understand and eliminate the cause - what would you recommend? I recall on a former podcast you made a link between headaches, inflammation and anti-histamines and so I tried using my hayfever medication once (steroid nasal spray and regular anti-histamines tablets) which surprisingly worked! Please help!

We're back with our 1st Cabral HouseCall of the weekend!

Here are today's questions:

Anon Female: Herpes/Cold Sores Remedy I'm wondering if you could cover the following topics on your podcast: I know you did a quick segment on herpes (type 1, simplex) on your show once, but I'd really love for you to cover this in more detail. I've been getting cold sores on my face (lip, nose, eyes) since I was a little girl and still go through periods where I'm getting them all the time. If I can take valtrex/acyclovir right on it's emergence, I'm usually okay, but if not, it gets really bad. I hate to take this medication, as it's the only thing i will ever take (I won't even take advil!). Is there anything I can do, a certain protocol, that will keep the herpes dormant?

 

Anon: I've had 1-2 cysts on my scalp for the last 2-3 years and they don't seem to be going away. They're not getting any bigger, however, just staying the same. I recently just discovered a new one. They're small, probably about 1/8 of an inch in diameter and not red or visible, but I can feel them. Why is this occurring? And is there anything I can do about it? Thank you!

 

Jessie: hello. First off thank you for trying to help pass along the good word of health. My question is, I have started wearing earplugs to bed at night because i am an extremely light sleeper. EXTREMELY. I need room pitch black, and any sound will wake me. It seems to be helping me get a better sleep, but bothers my ears since not that comfortable.... I have also started to notice a ringing in my ears at night. Are these connected? Is being a light sleeper a sign of ill health? Is there another way to get more sound sleep?

 

Alana: Hello, Stephen Cabral & team! I have been listening to all of your podcasts (and interact with your instagram as @reachalana)- I just purchased your Parasite Cleanse Protocol tonight and cannot wait to start it ASAP (yes, I did priority shipping). I had a quick question: you say on the product description that "it's not enough to do a 3 or 4 week parasite cleanse". Does that mean I need to order 2 of the sets to use back-to-back? Please clarify. Also, are there detailed instructions that come with the Parasite Cleanse Protocol? Thank you so very much, Alana

 

Enjoy the community Q&A and all the tips along the way!

Welcome to the #FridayReview where we'll be talking about all things wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging in regards to the health benefits of juicing!

Today's first product review is on the juicer I finally settled on after trying out over a dozen. The one I'll be talking about doesn't oxidize your fruits & vegetables the same way most commercial models do...

Next, I outline my favorite Fall juice recipe! It's has just the right amount of sweet (and warmth) to enjoy as temperatures start to drop a little... Plus, the health benefits of these particular ingredients are fantastic!

The last items I'll be reviewing today is a nutritional supplement for those that can't afford a daily organic fresh-pressed juice, don't have the time to make one, or don't want all the messy clean up...

Tune into #CabralConcept 272 for all the details - Enjoy the show!

20 years ago, my digestive system was barely functioning. I had trouble breaking down even easy to digest foods...

This led to a gradual weakening of my body and immune system, which resulted in a host of fatigue, GI, skin, auto-immune, brain fog, and other conditions...

It wasn't until I found out about the healing power of smoothies that I actually began to rebuild my body from the inside out. For the first time, I was able to absorb the nutrition from the pre-digested liquid smoothies and my body began to rapidly change...

But, not all smoothies are created equal (some are actually harmful), and as a result some people are not getting the benefits that they deserve...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 270 to get the same exact wellness & weight loss smoothie recipes that I give my private clients in my Boston Naturopathic Medicine practice!

There's probably no other plant based food in the world with more controversy and arguments over it than coffee...

On one side, we have the coffee proponents who talk about its high levels of antioxidants and the research showing it can improve everything from cardiovascular function to decreasing Alzheimer's...

Then, there are the anti-coffee advocates with an equaling compelling argument that coffee can over-stimulate the adrenal glands, cause burn out, and harm digestive function...

So who's right? i think the answer will surprise you, and I'll share it with you in more depth today on the #CabralConcept 269 podcast - enjoy the show!

Oct 31, 2016

Somewhere along the way most of us bought into a false belief that is holding us back from achieving greater things in our life...

We've been brainwashed into thinking that "changing," or becoming more than what we were brought up in, is somehow bad or disrespectful to our current friends, family or co-workers...

This type of thinking forces us to set small goals and never really feel fully realized or alive. It's also this mentality that leaves us with a life-time of regret of what might have been...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 268 to find out why this thinking occurs and how to break the cycle, so that you too can enjoy the life you've always wanted to live!

The 2nd Cabral House Call of the weekend is here and I'm looking forward to tackling your most important and pressing questions today!

Here's what the topics are for today's show:

 

Emily: Hi Dr. Cabral, I grind my teeth loudly when I sleep. My teeth also hurts often and sensitive to heat/cold. Any recommendations on how to fix this? Thanks!

 

Ann:  Hi Dr. Cabral, We really liked episode 254, its always nice to hear what rules and guidelines other people set for themselves in the way of healthy choices. Also, if you didn't receive the email we sent, we wanted to thank you so much for the bizarre recommendation (episode 246) of placing a bar of soap at the foot of the bed to help with symptoms of RLS (restless leg syndrome) It actually WORKS! We look forward to each and every podcast. Have a great day.  + Hi Dr. Cabral, I was thinking of purchasing the Fatlossity Diet Plan manual, could you explain more about this product. Is it intended for short term, or a long term way of nutritional eating? Thanks!

 

Dee: Any suggestions on a quick and drug free way to get rid of a dyshidrotic eczema rash? I deal with them from time to time. I understand rashes stem from the liver, so I'm juicing and eating raw, taking milk thistle and using coffee enemas. I'm also doing vinegar and domeboro soaks, and using shea butter mixed with lavendar and frankincense. I'd appreciate any input. Thanks.

 

Elizabeth: Hi Stephen, I have read Inositol is good for that "get up and go feeling" and any anxiety/irritability, do you have any thoughts on this product? Love listening to your shows, Thanks! :)  - Take with B

 

Thank you for listening in this week and I'll talk with you tomorrow on our Mindset & Motivation Monday show!

Welcome back to another Cabral HouseCall weekend!

Today we're taking more calls from the community and we've got some great questions today!

So let's get started:

 

Rebecca: Hi Dr Cabral, LOVE your podcast. Thank you so much for all of the helpful information you provide. I have several questions I'd love to ask but here are my top 3 for now: 1) What are your thoughts on digestive enzymes? After trying the GAPS, low FODMAP, and other elimination diets as well as probiotics, digestive enzymes are the only thing that have helped with my bloating/distended stomach. It hasn't cured me of it  but it has significantly reduced it so that it doesn't occur every day. 2) Have you heard of Longevity Coffee, and if so, do you recommend it?

 

Donna: I’ve recently been introduced to your podcasts and I'm finding them timely, informative and enjoyable. I'm having a particularly challenging time right now, from all directions. This evening, as I was having a pity party, your podcast popped into my head. I gave myself the "10X" test and reminded myself to 1. be thankful that things aren't worse and 2. to focus on creating positive change. My question about supplements is something I've wondered about for a long time...when is the optimal time to take them...morning, midday or before going to bed?

 

Erin: Hi! I'm 26 yr old female. 2 years ago I got in a car accident that burst fractured my L1. Ever since I have not felt the same and all doctors have done is prescribe pills that block pain receptors. I am struggling with intense leg spasms almost every morning. They last 10-30 seconds and is very painful. It has not seemed to get better even with working out and occasional stretching. I eat a lot of potassium which only temporarily helps. Maybe one day and the muscle cramps are back. What can you suggest?

 

Anonymous:  Hi Stephen, I have a toe nail infection in both big toes and both toe nails have now come off. Is it unsual to have both toe nails infected? I don't know how or why this happened. A new nail is growing underneath but I am not sure if the infection has gone. What is best to treat this, I have read topical oregano oil may be good?

 

Enjoy the show and be sure to tune back in tomorrow where we answer 4 more and completely different community questions!

I know that the vast majority of people exercise and workout because they want to stay in shape or lose some weight, but there are so many more reasons why it's important...

One of the number one ways to improve coordination is by completing a certain group of movements - and becoming more well-rounded in what you actually choose to do for workouts...

Many people believe that athletes or an athletic body is all genetics, but I can tell you from 20 years of working in the health & fitness industry that that is simply not the case...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 264 to discover how to become more coordinated and athletic, as well as how to design the perfect week of workouts - Enjoy the show!

Approximately 1 our of 3 Americans has a parasite. And worldwide, the number may be much higher, since a half a BILLION people alone have hookworms living inside them...

These parasites can be picked up almost anywhere - local restaurants, salad bars, house pets, farms, under cooked food, contaminated drinking water, walking barefoot, etc...

And, unless you're using a anti-parasite protocol 1-2x a year, or testing for parasites, you may not ever know you have them...

The Western philosophy and mentality drives us to keep pushing forward even when things don't seem to be going our way...

This can lead to stress, frustration, and feelings of being overwhelmed...

When you find yourself feeling "stuck" like this, the only solution is to temporarily slow down, step back and assess where you're at and what's important to you...

The 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend is here where we're answering your questions that have come in over the past few weeks!

So let's get started and here are today's community questions:

Susan: Hello Dr Cabral I am an avid podcast listener and am so disappointed you are in Boston! I think you need to open a Toronto clinic! My question is about psoriasis. I have it but not too bad - scalp only. My 2 daughters have developed it as well one is 16 one is 7 . The 7 year old developed it after she scraped her knee. Just wondering what I could try to get rid of it and if you can "cure" this auto immune issue thru diet. Most information seems to say no. Also looking online and various studies show that people who get psoriasis before the age of 25 have a shortened life span. This is disturbing for me and looking for some help. Susan

 

Max: Hi Dr. Cabral, I'm writing on behalf of my friend Sally - she has a 12 year old son diagnosed with ADHD. She has not, nor does she want to get him on medication to treat it. Now that those teen hormones are kicking in, they are struggling. Do you have any recommendations or suggestions on how to help them navigate and or treat ADHD? Thank you! Maxiel

 

Chad: Thanks for all of the great info!! What are your thoughts on the trap bar deadlift? It works the anterior chain more than a traditional deadlift, so is it a good substitute in a routine for squatting and deadlifting since it seems to be a combination of the two? I used to squat heavy, but now I’m no longer of fan of loading my spine with heavy weights

 

Me: How I choose labs & supplements - Safety first

It's already Friday and I'm looking forward to bringing you my weekly review of the best books, supplements, research, and all things wellness, weight loss & anti-aging!

We're starting off today with a brand new research study that just came out last week reinforcing the idea that even diet soda or zero calorie drinks can still pack on body fat and prevent us from losing weight...

Then, I'll be reviewing one of my favorite book companies for exercise and stretching techniques - They make it really easy to follow along and get results in the real world!

And finally, I'm always getting asked what I recommend for energy, snack, and protein bars, so today I'll present you with my two current favorites!

I'm excited to be back with our 2nd Cabral House Call of the weekend!

Right now, we're going to answer 4 of your questions on:

Chad: Is it a good idea to empty out contents of vitamins/supplements that come in capsule form, into say a smoothie, rather than consume the vegetarian capsule itself? Thanks so much

Erika: Hi Mr. Cabral, My Dad just recently had a "growth" on his prostate which he had surgically removed. "it wasn't cancerous" so he thinks he now has nothing to worry about. I am sure a growth is a sign of an unhealthy body and more bad new to come? Is this true? He needs to know this was a sign to change his ways, and is very stubborn in changing his diet. He does eat red meat weekly and just recently stopped consuming cows milk. Please help is persuading him to realize this was a sign. And do you see it as a precursor to cancer from past experience? Is there anything else you recommend? Thank you for all that you do! Erika

Tara: Is there a certain amount of carbs women should be eating every day, even if they're trying to lose weight? I've heard that you should stick to under 50 grams of "healthy" carbs for weight loss and none of those from grains or beans, but then I've also heard that women in general don't do well eating under 100 g a day, because of cortisol and adrenal factors. What does your experience tell you? Is it fine long term to eat only non-starchy vegetables for carbs, with no grains/rice, beans or legumes? Thanks!

Chloe: So I started using pure magnesium oil spray and I got an itchy sunburn like feeling from a few sprays on both arms and legs. I couldn't wait to wash it off! Apparently this reaction could mean a magnesium deficiency, wondered what your take is on this and should I stop using it? Thanks Stephen!

I hope you enjoy the community Q&A and all the tips thrown in along the way!
