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!   

Lisa: Hi StephenMy mother suffers with an Essential Tremor. It affects her hands and arms, making it difficult to eat and drink. Her mother also had this and her head would shake later in life. I am concerned that this may be something that I also acquire as it appears to be an hereditary trait. I have also noticed my hand shake when taking a glass of water or lifting a fork, but so far it has just been on a few isolated occasions and not a regular basis. I therefore wanted to ask if there was anything I could do to reduce my chances of developing a tremor like my mother and grandmother. I exercise frequently and try to eat a balanced diet. I am a healthy (slim) weight and on no medications. Any tips/advice would be much appreciated.Lisa

Gabe: Hi Dr. Cabral, I had a question to day about fodmaps. I know mushrooms are not allowed when following a low fodmap diet, but what about adaptogen powders. Typically I put lions mane in my smoothie or coffee. I also use reishi sometimes as well. Would these be ok to use on a low fodmap diet or should I stay away from them as well.

Karen: First off, a quick but heartfelt thanks to you and your team for all the work you do to educate and improve the health of those around you. It is a huge undertaking to commit to these daily podcasts, but your community really benefits from them!!!My question is about stabilized rice bran. I have heard there are great benefits to supplementing with it. However, I have concerns since I've heard it is the outer shell of the rice (also called the 'bran') which accumulates the most arsenic (which is why white rice tends to have less arsenic since the bran has been stripped away).Am I misunderstanding this concept? Do you have any insight into the health benefits of stabilized rice bran verses the risks?Thanks SO much!!!

Gabe: Hello Dr. Cabral, I hope you're doing well as these winter days really start to set in. My question pertains to the CBO protocol. I ran my organic acids test and was recommended to complete the CBO protocol based off my results. However, I am very underweight and was wondering if I can still gain back good weight on the CBO protocol. I know in the first few weeks the list of food that are allowed to be eaten is slightly restricive. Do you think it would be more beneficial to work on my weight first and then do the CBO protocol, or can I kill two birds with one stone in this case. I value your opinion and appreciate your help! Also, by the time you're seeing this it'll probably be close to Christmas, so merry Christmas as well, and again thank you!

Lara: Hi, dr. Cabral:)Your podcasts are an amazing start of the day for me, you’re such a bright star in a very dark night.. I’m sure a lot of people think this way.. thank you so much for doing what you’re doing..Today my question is about cold brewing tea.. I thought it was ok because I read about it but now a nutritionist told me I’m basically just making flavoured water and that the essential oils in herbs that are healing cannot get out of the herbs soaking in cold water.. do you have some knowledge about this? I’m sure some Ayurvedic knowledge..? :Which can be cold brewed then and which not? And how to prepare tea, I also heard not everything can be put into boiled water..?Thanks you so much and I wish everyone happy healing:)

Lorena: Hi Dr Cabral, thank you very much for taking the time to answer these questions. What would your suggestion be if someone goes through the CBO Protocol & CBO Finisher but then 3 months later gets food poisoning from a bad piece of sashimi? Would you say doing the parasite protocol directly if testing is not an option financially?

Mo: Hi Dr Cabral! Its Mo here. I'm reaching out in regards to my daughter again. Today is Nov 8th and about 2 days ago she developed this red spot that sort of looks like eczema in both her arm pits. Her left side is a lot more prominent than the right. She's only with me a couple days of the week and while with me she does not eat or touch any dairy, gluten or processed foods, however, unfortunately while with her mom she gets cheese, milk, yogurt, crackers. I have always had lots of skin issues (prior to doing your protocols) and so I'm worried since she has my genes she could develop the same issues. What would you recommend we do? While with me I give her your Omega 3, DNS, kids D3. Should I get her tested for food sensitivities?Thanks as always, my whole family loves you and all that you do for everyone in the community!Cheers, Mo.

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: 

Matt: G’day Dr Cabral,You provided some fantastic insight into my question from episode 1731 regarding Psoriasis. However I wondered if you had further insight into the white spots that I also mentioned in my question that don’t appear to be psoriasis. These white patches have developed in places where I have had scars and even a birth mark. The hair on these patches have turned white. These patches are mainly on my shin area and the back of my calves. What do you think this skin condition could be? Is it something I need to treat from the inside or topically? and do you think I will gain the pigment back in my skin with the right treatment?Thanks so much for your ongoing support, effort and advice.Cheers Matt

Freddy: Dear Dr. Cabral,First of all, thank you for all the help you provide for the Equilife community. There are countless people that have benefited profoundly from the work you do, myself included.I am interested to hear your opinion on the usefulness of amino acid blood testing. Through common functional medicine testing we learn about our body's vitamins, minerals, hormones, neurotransmitters, and fatty acid profiles, however it doesn't seem like a common practice to test for amino acid levels. Have you used amino acid testing in your practice? If so, for which types of clients? Also, is testing one's amino acid levels a good baseline test most people would benefit from doing? Your thoughts and insights are much appreciated.All the best,Freddy

Cindy: How do I change my wake up time? Or should I even try?My body naturally wants to go to sleep between 8 - 9 PM (at least during this season), but I usually stay moving until 9 so that I won't fall asleep too early. My alarm is set for 4:40 AM but I never make it until then. This morning I woke up at 2. I feel rested but annoyed! Based upon my Oura ring, I only get deep sleep in the first part of the night. I have noticed that if I get close to 90 minutes of deep, I won't be able to fall back asleep (even if I use my Apollo, sleep cycle). My REM is usually good (around 90 min. or a bit more), deep often low (around 60 minutes), but lately I am RED, not good, on the amount of sleep because my body won't stay asleep. Again, I feel rested when I wake up, but later in the evening, I cannot sit down to watch TV because I will fall asleep. Should I just be happy that I sleep well for the first 5 or 6 hours? If I stay up later, it doesn't change the time my body wants to wake up, well, it may push it back a little, but it is still too early.I have ran your Big 5 (cortisol normal curve). I have been testing my Blood sugar, and yes, every morning it is elevated (106 to 143, usually between 106-110).Any suggestions?

Cindy: My 1st Food sensitivity test had most grains as a problem area, especially wheat, gliadin, and wheat gluten. After CBO protocol and a couple years of healthy eating, I still feel gluten is a big caution area for me. However, on my 2nd food sensitivity test, all grains are in the green, except those mentioned above, but they are only in the low range. My Smart DNA test revealed that I would not digest gluten well; this won't change since it is DNA, right? I do feel that when I eat gluten (with my "choice" meal, now and then or with sour dough bread on occasion), my digestion slows way down. I will need to focus on elimination for a couple of days, or it won't happen. I'm a bit confused on why this IgG test shows gluten as not a big problem. Are these 2 test, Smart DNA and IgG food sensitivity test reporting on different items related to Gluten?Thank you for all you do. I love the changes you are making!

Carly: I practice seed cycling for hormone balance (1 Tablespoon of each: Flaxseed & Pumpkin during the First Part of my cycle and then switch to Sesame & Sunflower for the Second Set, or rest of my cycle). It has been very helpful!However, I don't like Flaxseed (grinding, etc) and Sesame seeds are a little higher (2nd green color) on the IgG Food Sensitivity Test.Question: If I only eat 1 seed from each category (Pumpkin and then Sunflower), do you think it would still have the balancing effect on my hormones?I appreciate all of your shared wisdom.Isn't it beautiful how your "Mess became your Message!”

Joanna: Hi Dr CabralWhat may be the cause of ongoing low blood pressure? Mine sits around 100/60 sometimes systolic in the 90s? Do you have any suggestions of how to increase blood pressure and causes?Also I have had low heamagloin for a few years now around 114, I have had microscopic blood in urine and stool both have been investigated with specialists, iron was also ok, and have checked b12 folate all normal. However my next step would be looking into red blood cell morphology/cytology. Could you please share some brief insight this, and direct me to any relevant podcasts you have done on this before? Or share any other thoughts about low heamagloin?I am an IHP so am working on gut and hormonal healingI do get a bit dizzy only on occasions, fatigue is ok most of the time, usually I feel quite energised. Periods are not heavyThankyou so much

One of the reasons heavy metals are implicated in many auto-immune and heart issues is their affinity for dysregulating the hormones…
 
They do so in multiple ways - one of which is by mimicking your own natural hormones and displacing them…

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!   

Noah: Hey doc! Love all your videos, super grateful to learn from a great doctor! My question is, for maybe 10-12 years, I have had rough red pimples you can say on my arms,chest,back and legs. I think it’s called follicular hyperkeratosis? What can I do that for that? No doctor even my functional medicine doctor doesn’t know how to treat it(effectively get rid of it). I currently don’t eat wheat,diary,eggs,soy and fish except salmon. I do deal with a lot of food allergies and allergies in general. Thanks!

Gail: Hi, for years I've been waking up at night many times - between 3 on good days and sometimes 5 or 6 on bad days - to go to the bathroom.I used to wake up many times during the night thinking that I needed to pee, but most of the time my bladder was far from being full...I started to take a Medication for overactive bladder a few weeks ago, and since then I still wake up many times during the night, but now my bladder is always full, which means I really need to pee 3 to 5 times per night.I've tried to limit any fluid intake after 5 pm but it did not change anything...I take a sleep supplementation as well as Magnesium; I meditate, do yoga and am otherwise healthy and fit...Do you have any clue what could help me? I haven't had a straight night of sleep for years now and of course, when I wake up at 4 or 5 am, it's getting harder and harder to go back to sleep...Thank you SO MUCH in advance for any help you could provide! Gail.

Paula: Hi Dr Cabral, thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to ask you questions! I was wondering if you consider dairy products from the animal buffalo as harmful as those from the cow? I know that if even someone doesn’t show a sensitivity to cow’s milk on an igG food sensitivity test, you still don’t recommend it for many other reasons. Does this apply to buffalo mozzarella as well for example?

Anonymous: What would cause a decrease in HDL levels? Last year my HDL was 48, I was hoping to increase this and started taking your Omega supplements in February. I eat pretty healthy, but have room for improvement: fish once a week, flax, chia, olive oil and nuts. I had my cholesterol tested recently and my HDL is now 38! It’s gone in the opposite direction. My HDL/LDL ratio is good, I am just curious why my HDL would decrease and suggestions on how to increase it.Thanks!

Judy: I was told I have sluggish bile causing poor breakdown of fats. What are some things I can do to support my gall bladder?

Kirsty: Hi Stephen, I know you have spoken about the ill effects of consuming dairy products, but I was wondering what your view is on raw milk dairy? I don't consume milk myself but I have been reading that it's a good source of enzymes (lipase) and also Butyrate which is necessary for cell rebuilding in the colon? I follow your protocols and love all your nutritional information so thought I'd get your thoughts on this. :) So much thanks!

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: 

Brandon: What are your favorite men’s soaps and shampoos? Looking for recommendations on regular shampoo and dandruff shampoo.

Anonymous: Hi Dr Cabral- thx for all the work you do! I’m about 10 years in on my health journey. I found you 1.5 years ago and now I’m making some progress. I’m currently working with a level 2 IHP, have done the food sensitivity lab, the spit test lab, a 14 day detox, the CBO plus the finisher, and the mold protocol. I’m still getting yeast infections (I’ve already listened to all your past yeast infection podcasts) and they come at the same time in my cycle and it seems hormone related. The other issue I’m still fighting is bacterial infections on the tip of my nose and sometimes inside my nose. I’ve had maybe 20-30 over the past 4 years. They clear up w neosporin. So far, every doc that I’ve asked can’t figure either of these 2 issues out, for long term success. I’m on all your supplements and the DNS daily. I’m healthy, active and great besides these two annoying reoccurring issues. The nose infections are definitely linked to sinus stuff that I’ve worked on through the years- All linked to Candida and sinus infections etc. thx for the help!

Kazz: Hi Dr Cabral, thank you for all the difference you are making in the natural health field, sharing your knowledge and being accessible to everyone who has a question, I appreciate it so much as so many do! My question today is regarding chronic eczema and supposed extreme allergy to dust mite and the treatment of ACTAIR immunotherapy. My daughter's bf who is 25yo has spent his life suffering with extreme allergic reactions; rhinitis, eczema and the occasional bouts of asthma. He has had plenty of courses of antibiotics over the years, but in recent years not so much, however recently he has had such a bad case of eczema that the scratching extended to staph. His dr prescribed antibiotics and when one course wasn't it enough, 2, 3... now onto his 4 consecutive course of antibiotics. He has had an allergy test, tested positive to dust mites and has been in consultation with specialist to possibly begin ACTAIR immunotherapy for dust mite allergy which is a 3 year desensitising process, and does come with side affects. I'm wondering if you know much about this therapy. I feel he could get great results using EquiLife products, a hair mineral analysis etc. He is concerned that there is no proof that would work. Would love to hear your comments :)) thank you so much.

Kelly: i Dr Cabral, my 8 year old son completed the children’s cbo this summer. He did have an anaphylactic reaction to a scallop in the middle of it where we had to stop for a few days, but for the most part we followed it well. I had been sharing my cbo finisher with him, although not religiously. He seemed to have been doing better. Belly aches, head aches seemed better, acid reflux is gone, arm pit eczema gone. But, the last 5 days he has been getting random hives all over his body, and itching throughout the day, all over, but especially at night when he’s trying to fall asleep. The only way he’s been able to fall asleep is with a little bit of Benedryl and wet wraps. He also has blotchy red spots around his mouth area. He had terrible eczema when he was 3mo-3 years, but it has mostly been gone since then. Now, it seems like it’s coming back. We did the food sensitivity test as well as scratch testing, and try to stay away from those. He hasn’t been eating anything “new” that I’m aware of, so I don’t understand what’s happening. He is very sensitive to gluten, dairy, sugar, and many foods and did have a lot of dairy at a friends house just before this started. Any ideas on what’s happening and how to help him heal would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

Michael: Hi Dr Cabral, what is the difference between collagen protein and bone broth protein?

I had the pleasure of connecting with Tyler Jean on how his ND studies are finishing up in Naturopathic Medical School…
 
We had a fun and eye-opening conversation about what it’s like for today’s Naturopathic students (especially during the pandemic) and what awaits them when they graduate…
 
Plus, Tyler shares his unique situation of already having built quite the following years ago on social media (and how he did it)…

Coffee (and tea) may just be the most popular nutritional supplement on the planet…
 
Now I know most people wouldn’t look at their morning coffee or tea as a supplement, but that’s exactly what it is…
 
It’s a nutritional extract of the whole food that you are consuming and in this case, it may be one of the healthiest things you can add to your daily routine (within reason)…
 
That’s why on today’s #CabralConcept 1761 I’d like to share the research on how coffee can boost fasting & autophagy benefits - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

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!   

Kelsey: Collagen deficiencies run in my family. The females get really saggy skin, especially all over the legs and I’ve noticed my upper eyes are having the first signs of drooping. I take collagen supplements but I just read something about collagen not being absorbed unless taken with silica. Is this true? Can you recommend any anti-aging tips for better collagen production or just general anti-aging recommendations?

Lara: Hi, dr. Cabral:)My question is regarding soaking nuts & seeds.. there are so many contradictory information out there, I’m really confused..Some say everything should be soaked to minimise the phytic acid and encime inhibitors, others that some nuts and seeds don’t have to be (cashews, Brazil nuts, pistachios, pine nuts, smaller seeds like sesame, chia, linseed, hemp seeds..)..Which info is correct and why?Then you read that it should be soaked in a water with a little salt in it, but a nutritionist I asked said that binds the minerals in them and takes it out of the nuts so it’s not recommended..?Then there are so many different information on how long to soak which nuts/seeds/grains/legumes.. how long is best for which?Then, some say to soak in a refrigerator, others not to..How about roasting them after? Does that take away any of the nutrients?Or just leaving them soaked and probably refrigerated so they don’t go bad?Basically I’m interested in all information about this topic but don’t know where to find it because everyone says different stuff..Also, is it bad to eat lots of these..?Thank you so much, as always, you are a lifesaver! Lots of love to everyone healing out there..

Katharina: I wanted to first thank you for all your teaching! I am almost finished with IHP Level 2 and have learned so much! I am an RN in a busy Boston hospital and it has been quite a year. I am using the knowledge gained in IHP for my family and beginning a small practice helping others get their health back!What I haven't heard throughout (And with so many podcasts I have probably just missed it) is about air filters. I am currently working my way through the whole podcast list and have searched for air filters and listened to those. I know you recommend a couple of freestanding ones, but what about just putting HEPA filters on your forced hot air system for the house? My husband asked me when I told him I wanted to buy an IQ Air and I was a bit stumped at why IQ air is better... He sort of just lets me do whatever crazy health stuff I want, but I want a solid answer to stand behind here! Can I just put a filter on the heat/air conditioning system I have now and filter the whole house at once?

Ivana: Hi Dr Cabral,Two years ago at age 22, I was diagnosed with Crohn's and had to have 5cm of my small intestine removed due to a stricture. I am fully in remission, no medications, sticking to the kind of lifestyle you promote and doing great. I did the CBO protocol and I'm now on the CBO finisher, I cannot thank you enough for creating something like this protocol, it did wonders for me and I can't believe something so simple made such a huge difference! Although I feel great now, I know that at some point in a year or two I will need to do a colonoscopy or an MR enterography to check on my intestines. As you probably now, when preparing for such a procedure, they give you a bunch of aggressive laxatives that are artificially flavoured and full of additives. How harmful is this in terms of wiping out the good bacteria in the intestines? Would there be any alternative way of cleaning your intestines, for instance, drinking just liquids and shakes for two days and then taking some more natural laxatives? Would it be useful to do the CBO protocol after the procedure?Thank you for all the work you do, the fact that the information you share and your 3 months protocol helped me more than 7 years of doctors' appointments says it all. All the best!

Brianna: Hello,So, my doctor recommended me to go on the Candida diet and I noticed there’s a Candida & Bacterial Optimizer (CBO) protocol and I definitely want to try this due to the fact I’m having a hard time coming up with meals to eat, however, I did notice one of the probiotics does have milk in it and I have been vegan / plant based for almost 5 years now and don’t have dairy so is there any way I could get this protocol without the probiotic that’s on there that has milk? I am currently taking a probiotic from my doctor and the strains are the same minus 2 strains.

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: Hello Dr. Cabral, really enjoying the new Thursday guest podcasts! Thanks for all that you do! My question is in regards to people with graves disease who have had radioactive iodine ablation. (Thanks to you I understand the workings of the HPA and HPT axis, and triggers/solutions for autoimmune conditions within the framework of our lifestyle habits and epi-genetics)My question is simply this, in your clinical experience have had clients regain normal thyroid function after having their thyroid ablated without needing thyroid medication? When I had this procedure a few years ago I was told I would be on thyroid medication forever since the ablation apparently induces a permanent hypo-thyroid state. I have been on nature throid for a while and am doing well, but wanted to see if a protocol (12-16 weeks?) with the daily thyroid support and potentially an additional thyroid glandular could help heal my thyroid and allow me to wean of nature throid? I understand that this could work for typical hypo-thyroid or hashimotos clients but could this work for those who had radio-active iodine ablation? My goal is to eventually be off thyroid medication for good, and use supplements as the stressors of life see fit! Thanks!

Rie: Hi. Thank you so much for all you do to help people. I have completed all the tests except for the food sensitivity test and have completed all the protocols as indicated by my health coaches. I follow your daily regimens as well. For the past three years, I have been getting salivary gland infections. My MD prescribes antibiotics each year and these take care of it after the ten days of treatment. I do not go to the doctor until they are so bad that I cry whenever I try to eat. These salivary gland stones/infections are very painful and I hate to have to take antibiotics. I ha e noticed that they occur in either August or September. This year I made it until October. I take the alkalizing vitamin C and the Hist Pro, but I did miss some days on the Hist Pro. I figure they are allergy related since they occur at the same time of year generally. My doctor isn’t very familiar with them and thinks I should see an ENT for possible surgery. I have searched all the podcasts and only found information on tonsil stones. Mine seem to be in the glands under my tongue, but the lymph gland on the left side of my neck enlarges first each time. Please help me!

Inga: Dear Dr.CabralI have another question about my baby .. he’s currently 16 months old and has never slept through the night. He wakes up 5-10 times a night! My pediatrician just said that’s what happens with breast fed babies . I find that hard to believe. He wakes up crying and wants to be fed he won’t take a bottle or pacifier. He co sleeps with my husband and I .. I have tried a sound machines, diffusing lavender, foods high in magnesium, and taking out gluten/ dairy from his diet. We tried getting him to sleep in his own crib hoping that would help and he cried hard for 5 nights each night in his crib .. I really don’t know what to do .. thank for any advice you can give me I really appreciate you and value your opinion. Inga

Daise: You talked about the importance of hormonal balance to burn fat as one of the 5 factors to burn fat. But you did not explain how to do that. Could you please explain the solution to this problem. How to balance your hormones? Are you saying fatlosity is the answer to this problem?

Meghan: Hello Dr Cabral, I have had incredible transformations through your protocols, now have an Integrative Health Baby, am an IHP 1 and currently enrolled in IHP 2 and will be one of your supporters for life.My question is regarding the product called Ion Gut Health which was created by Dr Zach Bush. The main ingredient is Terrahydrite® Tests showed it restores cellular tight cell junction integrity. ION*Gut Health supports the body’s production of beneficial enzymes through redox signaling (cellular communication) and promoting lysine production. Are you aware of this product and in terms of healing leaky gut and what are your thoughts about it? I know you are supportive of the ingredients within the healthy gut support product but keen to hear whether you have come across Terrahydrite in your research. Many thanks in advance

Although I’m an avid reader and someone that seeks out as much information as I can in order to learn, grow, and teach, much of it I take with a grain of salt… 
 
The reason why I say this is that over the years I have seen a marked difference between “what should work” as stated by the research, and what “does actually work” as seen in the real world…
 
And when it comes to self-improvement and growth there are a few principles I’ve seen work for thousands of people to increase growth, satisfaction, and happiness in life…

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!   

Simon: Hello and thank you Dr Cabral! We are expecting our second baby in late November and I am preparing for six-plus months of reduced and interrupted sleep with additional stress. I'm wondering what your best recommendations are for preparing for, and dealing with, this taxing time? My main concerns are impacts on energy and focus (at work, exercising, and being a good father), as well as general health and not reversing my last 12 months healing from chronic IBS-D. I've listened to all your podcasts on adaptogens and figure a maintenance dose of stress-reliving supplements like Adrenal Sooth, swapping with or adding energy-boosting supplements like Adrenal Energy Support on days when I need more energy and focus at work? What do you think of Korean and American ginseng for energy also?Are there any supplements or practices that benefit sleep when you know it will be frequently interrupted?Many thanks!

Simon: Hello Dr Cabral, Simon here again! As above I am preparing for a period of reduced sleep and increased stress when our second baby arrives. I normally like to train frequently (mix of weights, calisthenics, yoga and cardio) and do want to keep fit over this period, however I am cautious not to impact my overall health and energy by adding additional stress to on my body and waring myself out. How would you approach exercise over this period? I am a Vata/Pita body type.

Samantha: Hi Dr Cabral!Do you ever use Chaste tree in your practice for pms symptoms and/or to help stimulate progesterone in someone with estrogen dominance?Thank you so much! I just completed the big 5 labs and am working with one of your health coaches. :) Thank you again for all you do. I have learned so much through your podcasts and wouldn't be where I am today without you.

Jessica: Hey Dr. Cabral, thanks for all you do! I am a healthy 36 year old female. For the past few years I have had two issues that I have tried to fix with a healthy diet and a decent amount of supplements that I take daily with no help. Firstly, I have horizontal ridges in my nails that are worst/deepest/sometimes only in my thumbs (which can get uncomfortable almost painful at times). Secondly, I lose a lot of hair, like a ton when I get out of the shower. Not sure if these items are related but they are both very frustrating. I workout every day (running or HIIT), I am vegan and gluten free, not really stressed, I've taken a food sensitivity test, and I take a bunch of vitamins daily. Any idea what could be causing this to happen? Thanks so much.

Marissa: Hi Dr. Cabral. I’m hoping you can do a podcast or provide some advice on “red skin syndrome” aka topical steroid withdrawal. I’ve been withdrawing from corticosteroids for about 5 months now and am more than ready to be healed completely. Do you have any advice how I can speed up the process?

Chris: Hi Dr Cabral,I have a perplexing situation that I hope you can shed some light on. This summer, my husband who has no known allergies, went for a run outside and after coming home and starting the cool down process, he broke out in hives all over his body, from head to toe. His face swelled up as well as his tongue (although no trouble breathing) and became super itchy on certain parts of his body. He took Bendadryl and a Pepcid AC (as prescribed by his sister, a nurse) and the reaction slowly went away over about a period of an hour or so. This happened twice during the heat. We assumed it was heat rash or he swiped against a bush and had a reaction to it, but then it just happened again in mid-October in Chicago on a very cool day. The only common denominator we can think of is that the night before he drank some beers and then went for a run the next day, however this would be odd to have a reaction when he's had beers several times throughout his adult life and then exercised the following day with no issues. He is 40 yrs old, in great shape with no known medical issues besides psorasis {for which he takes a monthly injection :(}. What could be causing this strange reaction? Thank you.

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: 

Carrie- Ann: Hello,You are a true inspiration. Thank you for changing this world one person at a time.I’ve been a wellness Chiropractor for almost 20 years now and I listen to your podcasts daily. I’m going to start your IHP program in 2021.My question is about my 9 year old daughter. She has been suffering from an itchy vagina for almost 12 months now and 2 months ago started also having an itchy anus too. She’s seen a very thorough naturopath who worked on healing her gut, parasites, homeopathic and more. None of this helped. We’ve changed to organic cotton underwear, use all natural laundry detergents and soaps, she has a very clean, organic diet with almost no dairy, gluten or soy. She takes probiotics, multivitamin and vitamin D and C daily. We’ve also tried some conventional treatments like canesten cream and over the counter worming tablets.A very quick history is my daughter was born with a congenital diaphragmatic hernia and had surgery on day one of life. She was tube fed for 4 months (breastmilk) and on many drugs. After the age of 4 months she has never had another drug in her body and has never taken any antibiotics.Thank you so much for you knowledge and help. It’s so appreciated.

Marc: Hi is there a test you can perform to see what may be causing my scalp to be dry and having excessive hair fall?

Mo: Hope you’re doing well! My question today is about head lice. My daughter is 3 and her preschool told me that a child in her class has had head lice 2X now in the past 30 days. They stay away from school and come back when it’s gone but it keeps reoccurring. I’m concerned it'll spread to my daughter and I want to prepare myself in case anything happens. What would you recommend for kids if this happens? Thank you as always!

Lorena: Hey Dr Cabral! Thank you so much for all of the knowledge that you share with all of us! My son is 12 and started doing the CBO for children. However, when I read the instructions it said that it’s recommended for children under 100lbs. He’s actually 110lbs (50kg) (his BMI is healthy). He’s very fit, eats very healthy, does a lot of sports, etc. Just wondering if maybe I made the wrong decision and he should have gone for the adult CBO? Thanks!

Bryan: Hey doc! Love the videos, I want to ask your opinion on Lyme disease. My doctors told me I have fibromyalgia but I didn’t really believe it since I’m a 18 year old male who has had chronic migraines, stomach pains and fatigue for years and now so many symptoms one being crazy dizziness. So I went to see a functional medicine doctor and he told me he thinks it’s Lyme disease. He’s currently treating me with only herbs since he think antibiotics will do harm than good for me. What’s your approach to healing Lyme? Do I need to take antibiotics to fully recover? Thanks!

Samantha: Hi Dr Cabral,If the activated B complex causes body odor unlike I have ever experienced and I'm absolutely sure it's this vitamin after lots of trial and error....would you recommend continuing to take it as this could be a sign of it doing its job detoxing the body? I read Choline has been associated with a fishy body odor, but only in individuals with a rare metabolic disorder known as trimethylaminuria. I wouldn't call the body odor smell fishy though. Just more pungent than ever before. :/Thank you oh so much! I tried to find the answer myself but feeling a little confused and wanted to ask the expert! :)
