Every quarter I like to look at my priorities and goals list and make sure it is up-to-date…
 
Along with those goals I also want to make sure that my non-negotiables match what I am looking to get out of life over the next 90 days…
 
If I am not putting in the work, providing enough value to those in my life, or of service to our community I have to rethink either my goals or what I am willing to do in order to achieve them…
 
That's why on today's #CabralConcept 2173 I'd like to share with you my non-negotiables list and hopefully inspire you to create one of your own – enjoy the show and let me know what you thought and what some of your non-negotiables are in the comments below!

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!   

Anonymous: Hello doctor, I’d be grateful if you would provide your thoughts about my digestive concern. I pass gas often. Sometimes several times within an hour. It’s odorless. It’ll begin a couple hours after lunch and continue through the night. I pass a lot of gas in the mornings before having to go number 2. After that i won’t have excessive gas until after lunch again. I never feel bloated. I’m not gassy when fasting, it’s only after eating whole food meals. I drink a smoothie for breakfast. Lunch and dinner follows your weight maintenance plan from ihp. I eat plant based for 80% of my whole food meals. I take two digestive enzymes with each meal and I use extra enzymes when I eat beans. Thanks in advance for your response.

Angie: Hi Dr. Cabral. Thank you for your work and dedication to help people all over the world get well and feel alive again. I have done the detox, parasite protocol and am now doing the CBO protocol and am currently undergoing testing for mold toxicity through my local naturopathic doctor. I have two questions: 1). I will be doing the CBO Finisher after the CBO protocol. My body does not react well to glutamine and it gives me unexplained anxiety. I can take the FM detox levels, but not the 5G in the Healthy Gut Support. Why is that? Because of this, what dosage do you recommend me titrate until I can handle the 5G? 2). If I have high levels of mold and will likely need to repeat or lengthen my treatment, what do you recommend? Should I repeat month 1 and 2 again or continue only certain supplements until I get my levels down?

Jen: I am curious why I urinate so much more after a smoothie, than just plain water. Whenever I have a smoothie, I am running to pee multiple times within the following 1-2 hours. I don't have this with water. Thank you!

Emma: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have struggled for years with constipation, gas and bloating. I have tried everything in the book and the foods I have the hardest time digesting are vegetables and fruits. I struggle because I know how healthy they are for the gut and everything, but they just make me more constipated and bloated. What do you recommend?

Lorena: I take the DNS everyday and recently have done a blood test in which serum vitamin B12 and serum folate were elevated. Does this means there's a deficiency or that I'm taking too much vitamin B?

Lorena: I also forgot to ask that I recently did a hair tissue test that showed high magnesium (low potassium) & high zinc (copper normal). I take 400mg of magnesium citrate and 100mg of mag glycinate before bed and the balanced zinc every morning. As an anxious Vata, my body does well with magnesium. But now I’m not sure what to do. Should I stop taking magnesium and zinc?

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: 

Ashley: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have had amenorrhea for quite a long time. It first started when I lost a large amount of weight for a bodybuilding competition. This was 10 years ago. Over the years I was put on birth control to help try and regulate the period and "bring it on" however I didn't like the way that made me feel and I knew that was only putting a bandaid on the problem and not fixing the real issue. I have tried MANY different things to no avail. Fast forward to present day. In the last 2 years my period has started to return! My doctor says this is a great sign. Maybe my body is becoming more balanced? However it still is irregular. I've gotten it about 4-5 times a year the past two years, it lasts just a few days. The very hard part is I will experience pms symptoms for 3-4 weeks! Irritability, extreme bloating, extreme nipple and breast discomfort. Truly severe symptoms. It even affects me mentally as well as physically. I know you often talk about estrogen dominance but in my case, my estrogen, including estradiol and those other female hormones, are extremely low. What do you do in this case? How can I rebalance these hormones and ease these symptoms? There is a lot of information out there and it all can be so overwhelming, like there's so much I need to do. Please help!

Anonymous: Hi Dr. Cabral! I’m a daily podcast listener and I want to thank you for all your helpful wisdom you share. I’ve had medical issues that I was born with that has caused me to have chronic pain and multiple surgeries throughout childhood and all the way to being an adult now. I recognize as an adult that those procedures and how I was treated was at times necessary and that the doctors were only trying to help. However, lately I’ve taken a look at what happened through a child’s perspective and can see how scary, invalidating and traumatic those experiences were. How do I move on from medical trauma? How do I get help with moving through this when the same people I look to for help are the same people that trigger these feelings in the first place? My body feels constantly stuck in SNS dominance despite following all the health protocols, and I know this issue is holding me back from being well. I’ve tried working with different therapists, hypnotherapist and a life coach. Any guidance would be much appreciated.

Erin: Hoping you have some advice... I keep getting sinus infections and constantly have allergy issues and in the winter often get bronchitis. I’ve done allergy testing and have bad environmental allergies. I’ve been doing a lot of gut healing over the past few years yet I am still having these issues. Starting to feel defeated...any ideas or advice? If it does help/matter, most family members on my moms side have allergy issues as well. Thanks so much for all you do.

Kathy: Dear Doctor Cabral, thank you for helping so many people. You are amazing! My daughter (who is in her 20's) wants to know why something has been happening for the last few years, and I did do a podcast archive search, but nothing came up, so I would love to know if you have seen this before: The first bite of any type of food that she eats after not eating for a couple of hours (especially first thing in the morning) tastes very sour and causes her cheeks to pucker. The food is not necessarily a sour food, so it seems a little unusual. Water is the only thing that will not do this. She's in great shape and takes good care of her health. Thank you so much, I really appreciate you. :)

Tina: I have a few brown spots on my face that my dermatologist is calling melasma. Is there a way to get rid of it naturally without using all the bleach and chemical creams he’s recommending? He told me melasma comes from the sun and from heat. So now I’m afraid to go for a walk during the day with the sun out and also I have been avoiding the infrared sauna because he said the heat can cause more of it. Are the spots caused by liver toxicity? Hormone in balance? How can I get rid of them? Thank you so much!

Lola: Hi! I have learnt so much from the show and it truly is a blessing! I am a 24year old vata-pitta female with kapha vikruti and I have had alopecia since I was 16. I had always had extremely fine and thin hair so getting alopecia really affected my mental health. It started out as small bald patches on the sides on my head and one in the back, but then over the years, I got thinning at the temples, a receding hairline and thinning at the part of my hair and the crown. I have tried everything but haven't really found a solution. I have recently adopted a pitta pacifying diet, but I'm not sure if it's helping. I am now losing tiny hairs that almost look like vellus hairs and I'm not sure why. I think the hair that regrows falls out after a few weeks. Please.provide some insight into what the issue could be. Also, I have tested my thyroid and it is normal.

Thank you for tuning into today's Cabral HouseCall and be sure to check back tomorrow where we answer more of our community’s questions!

It seems that there’s a different diet out there for every day of the week…
 
However, if you strip back the marketing and dogma of all of the best diets they all center themselves around tried and true formulas backed by science…
 
That’s why on today’s #CabralConcept 2168 I’d like to take you through the most effective (scientifically proven) way to start a diet (no matter what diet you choose) - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

I use to believe that how we age was mainly due to our genetics and outside factors largely outside of our control…
 
But then after running a large-scale functional medicine practice and working with many families I saw how some individuals look decades younger than other adult siblings…
 
What I begin to realize was while there certainly is a genetic factor as to what we will look like when we age how quickly we age and how youthful we look has far more to do with our toxicities and deficiencies…
 
That's why on today's #CabralConcept 2167 I would like to share with you the seven factors for flawless skin and how anyone can easily adapt these to their life – enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend!

I’m looking forward to sharing with you some of our community’s questions that have come in over the past few weeks…

Let’s get started!   

Emma: Hello Dr. Cabral, My mother has been diagnosed with Grave’s and Thyroid Eye Disease. Her symptoms include proptosis in one eye, very low TSH and normal T4 & T3. Although all of her antibodies have shown very low or zero, even after repeat testing. Is there a specific imbalances or deficiencies you commonly see paired with low TSH ? What could be causing the proptosis if she doesn’t have any antibodies? Could Candida be at play? What are your top recommendations for Grave’s/Thyroid Eye Disease? So grateful for your support. Thank you!

Anonymous: If someone is sensitive or allergic to wormwood and/black walnut, what product or ingredients would you recommend instead to be able to do both a parasite protocol and a CBO protocol? It seems like omitting the microbial balance and parapro would not achieve the best results, but I can’t tolerate either of these. Even using the smallest doses and titration, I get severe stomach pain when using these supplements. I have learned so much from your podcast. Thank you for all you do!

Michelle: I'm always on a quest to source the best possible animal proteins I can find. Recently I went on a search for turkey, specifically turkey slices like deli meat. I know better than to buy any grocery store deli meats so I tried searching for local pasture raised turkeys but couldn't find anything except a whole bird. Then I referenced The Cornucopia Institutes Organic Poultry Scorecard which gave me one option I could find in the stores with a 4-bird rating but on further research of that company I found they only have a special Holiday bird that qualifies for the GAP step 5 rating and all their other birds are only GAP step 3, which means outdoor access, not pasture raised. Very frustrating and I've come to the conclusion that I'll probably need to buy a whole bird and cook it myself. What I am wondering though is even with the local pasture raised farms it's normal to supplement with an organic / non-gmo feed that is a grain product. I do not eat grains due to my autoimmune history. If I'm eating animal protein that had some grain feed during it's life span does that affect me? To quote Michael Pollan "You are what you eat eats.”

Melania: Yeast showed up in the stool test but not in the OAT. How is this even possible?

Tina: I am a 52 year old female who loves doing bodybuilding shows every couple of years. I eat a very healthy macro-based diet with Whole Foods play on for the most part I am very healthy. I just ordered the big five and I’m excited to test my hormones. Curious how I can put on more muscle without taking steroids? How can I increase my testosterone levels naturally? Is there something I could be eating or taking to help me put on more muscle since I do strength train five days a week moderately heavy but I feel like I’m not putting any new muscle on. Thank you for everything! I think you’re amazing and I appreciate you and your team so so much.

Simon: Hi Dr Cabral, I know you are a big fan of high-powered blenders for smoothies and I was wondering what your thoughts were on 'vacuum'/pressurized blenders, which remove air before blending, supposedly reducing oxidation. I have to make my smoothie 2+hr before I drink it every morning so the potential to reduce oxidation is appealing, but I'd love to hear whether you think they are worth the extra money and have any recommendations?

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: 

Lorena: Hi there! I’m a 28 year old Vata and IHP Level 1 and 2 certified. Recently, I’ve been noticing that my Oura ring has constantly been telling me that my heart rate has been elevated at night. My HRV as a result is much lower than usual. I haven’t got one night of a normal heart rate and it’s been in “red” in the Oura app (56-62 bpm. At the same time that this started happening, I started to feel some weird neurological symptoms similar to those in MCAS (intense anxiety especially after eating, heart palpitations, brain fog & more). I’ve also suddenly started to experience bloating and gas after whole food meals (not smoothies). I’ve never had digestive issues before and did the CBO a year ago for skin issues solely. Trying to figure out how to lower this heart rate at night. I’ve even lowered stressed massively (at work & stopped working out intensively). Any idea what could be going on? I take a good amount of magnesium before bed too and sometimes even melatonin. Waiting on stool test results because I want to rule out parasites & h pylori. But if the latter is negative, what else should I look at?

Melanie: I always hear you talk about people with high blood pressure needing more potassium in their diet. They would therefore not have to worry too much about sodium. However, my dad has high blood pressure and a few weeks ago ended in the hospital as his potassium levels were very very elevated and it was life threatening. He has high blood pressure, diabetes type 2 etc… I was wondering how this can be possible? I thought everyone with high blood pressure usually had low potassium levels! Btw this event happened the day after he took the laxative to do a colonoscopy so not sure if this is relevant.

Anonymous: Hi Stephen, I have a question about insulin. In the health world currently, there is A LOT of talk about blood sugar and insulin in regards to losing weight. I am regularly reading that insulin must be kept low because insulin halts fat oxidation. Therefore is insulin is up you can't burn fat. However, there is an abundance of research that shows that under isocaloric conditions, there is little to no difference between LCHF and HCLF diets. I knw you yourself are familiar with the rice, fruit, and fruit juice diet reearch which was basically all carbs and yet insulin sensitivity was improved and weight loss occured. Surely this would suggest energy balance is the overriding important factor in weight loss. If "fat can't be burned when insulin is present or high" how can such studies be explained? Would love your insight here. Thank you.

Amber: Hello Dr.Cabral. First I just want to say thank you so much for all you do and give. I’m currently getting my level 1 and I truly look forward to learning from you everyday. Ok so in regards to my question… My 7 year old son got covid about 3 weeks ago now. He got hit in the form of mostly diarrhea for two days. I’m only giving that piece of info because the current problem has only happened since having said virus. (In all his 7 years he has been sick about 4 other times.) He’s been hit with the current problem about 3 times in the last two weeks. He’ll be eating and his stomach will start to hurt really bad. One, was on Thanksgiving which I thought ok maybe all the different foods being combined. Then it happened again today two different times after eating something he always eats. Didn’t hit him as hard but still came. His stomach does seem to settle once I give him this ginger drink. My mom intuition tells me something isn’t right and I need to catch it before it develops into something worse. I have some ideas on where to start but I’d love your thoughts first. Greatly appreciate it. Thank you very much.

Ewa: hello, my son Isak18 can't seem to get his full voice back after he caught a cold early fall, which happened around the same time last year. Its Really bad especially in the morning when he has to cough, clearing the pflem and scratchyness out. The ENT took a pict of inflamed vocal cords, lots of pflem and gave him antibiotics and steroids. He felt all better for a week before it came back again. He is working outside around damp leaves quite a bit but doesn't have any other mold-symptoms... Since he was a little puppy his colds always got to his lungs and airways. What do you think doc, whats going on? Much appreciation your way! Ewa and Isak

Malinda: Ive read in medical studies of children who contract the chicken pox virus are less likely to contract shingles later in life, which is so much worse. If this is true what is the best way for them to catch the chicken pox now that so many children are vaccinated against it? What can parents do to avoid their child from contracting painful shingles later in life? As well as naturally boosting myself?

I hope by now you know that when I mention anything pertaining to weight gain or loss it is not about vanity metrics or having to conform to a specific body size…
 
My work is centered around helping people optimize their entire well-being and improve their quality of life…
 
And one of the most critical factors in living longer and reducing “dis-ease” risk (co-morbidities) is by maintaining a healthy weight…
 
I bring this up today because based on new research we now definitively know that COVID is worsened with extra weight gain…
 
On today’s #CabralConcept 2162 I will share with you why that is and how we can improve outcomes - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

Although I do agree that the best place to start for a weight loss or body transformation plan is through diet and exercise there are multiple ways to improve your results 
 
Besides rebalancing your fat-burning hormones a surefire way to increase metabolic rate is by harnessing the power of natural herbs known to boost metabolism 
 
That's why on today's #CabralConcept 2161 I wanted to share with you the five best herbs for weight loss - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

We know that in order to be able to achieve our goals in these next 12 months we might need to be following a proven system…
 
However, beyond that, you also need to make sure that you are not the one slowing down your progress or potential…
 
Believe it or not, most people don't achieve their goals, not because of a lack of knowledge, but rather a particular mindset that self sabotages their success…
 
That's why on today's #CabralConcept 2159 I'd like to share with you how to eliminate the 5 toxic mindsets preventing you from achieving your goals - Enjoy the show and let me know if you can think of any others!

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!   

Victoria: Hi Dr. Cabral, Someone I know has been in the hospital with double pneumonia and tuberculosis. The antibiotics weren't helping for awhile so they had to put her in an induced coma for a week and on a ventilator to keep her alive. Eventually, she left the hospital but then her ankles started hurting. After review by doctors, they found something called "mycobacterium haemophilum" that could be possibly infecting / eating away at her bone. They only had one very unfortunate solution for this to prevent it spreading to the rest of her body. I have a few questions. I know you are not supposed to give medical advice -- so I won't be asking for medical advice. If she would look to help to fix this dis - ease in her body naturally, what do you think the best solutions would be to start? I am trying to get some kind of a Naturopathic doctor to start working with her. Looking for any possible guidance though you may have. Wondering if this happened because of all the antibiotics she was pumped (7+ kinds) to keep the other infections at bay imbalanced her microbiome and body dramatically. She has also had an autoimmune disease for most of her life in which she has been on a strong steroid for (15+ years). Thank you so much for your input.. really appreciate your time on this.

Joanna: Hi Dr Cabral Could you please explain how someone can have an issue with sulphur detoxification and why they get symptoms with foods high in sulphur? What is the underlying cause of this? How do you go about Correcting this? Does this have a correlation with sibo? Plus what is hydrogen sulfide bacteria and how does occur? Many thanks for your help

Charonne: Hi doctor Cabral, I hope you're doing great! I was wondering if you could maybe give me some advice on the following: I (42 y.o. F) always have cold hands and feet - especially during the winter. In those cold months, my fingers will often swell up and look inflamed from the cold. I know that it has to do with my low thyroid and a very low blood pressure. I'm working on this with my health practitioner, but it’s going slowly, so I would really love to know if you know of any great natural remedies to get and keep my hands and feet warm. Thanks so much in advance for your answer, and for everything you do! Especially for creating the CBO protocol! I’m almost finished with it, and my digestion has never been better! :) Charonne

Anonymous: Hi Doc, Thanks for everything! (I know this is a family show so I will try to phrase my question in the right way. Choose the best alternative for your preferences.) Alternative 1. Are there any underlying root cause to sexual fetish’m? Alternative 2. Are there any underlying root cause to why some people have a “fruitful desire” in which gratification is linked to an abnormal degree to a particular object, item of clothing, part of the body, etc? TIA!

Elizabeth: How do you know what your exact body type is? As well as what is better to do to lose weight carb cycling or macroing? I've put on 40lbs , 54 yrs metabolism is shot :(

Laura: Hello! I'm a 27 year old Vata. My at-home saliva test showed low cortisol in the AM and higher than optimal at night. I know this is adrenal fatigue and I've listened to all of your shows on this. I feel exhausted in the morning but still anxious so I chose not to go for adrenal energy support. I already do the daily foundational protocol level 3 with magnesium before bed and zinc at dinner time. I've done the CBO & CBO finisher and do my seasonal detoxes as well. Any recommendations for raising my cortisol levels in the morning naturally? I already bought the light box but not sure what else to do as I really feel very tired in the morning (and caffeine worsens my anxiety). Sleep is good, 7-7.30h of sleep every night with 90 mins of REM and 2h of Deep.

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: 

Maria: Hey! Thank you so much for taking the time to answer our community’s questions :) I’m a Vata body type 29 year old woman currently working on healing my adrenal fatigue. I have elevated levels of cortisol in the PM and low cortisol in the AM. Unfortunately, I don’t do very well with adrenal soothe due to histamines. I’ve tried it several times but it just doesn’t agree with me. Any other alternative that you recommend? I can’t take adrenal support in the morning because I already suffer from anxiety (funny given that my AM cortisol is low). Sleep is good, I track it with my Oura ring and take magnesium, DNS, omega 3, daily probiotic & vitamin D everyday.

Maria: Sorry me again! I forgot to mention that I decided to take a break from heavy lifting and just stick to 10k steps every day and Workout 3x a week with resistance bands only. BMI 21 & 15% body fat percentage. I was doing a lot of sauna but I read that it might not be the best right now as it can be a stressor to my body. What are your thoughts? My workouts are not as intense so I don’t really sweat. Sauna is the only option I have…After running the hormones test with your team, all of my hormones are also on the lower side (including estrogen). So I don’t want to push my body too hard.

Jenna: Do you think that drinking pomegranate juice has more benefits or more downsides? I know drinking any juice without the fiber of the fruit will spike blood sugar, but I also know pomegranate is great for antioxidants. Would you recommend drinking this? (maybe in small amounts?)

Darren: Hey Dr Cabral. Wishing you, your family and Equi Life team all the best in the new year. By the time you get this it'd likely be finished but this question is for future reference. I got the Equi Life Activated B Complex, Activated Multivitamin and DNS recently. I looked at the daily value percentages and was wondering if it was possible to take 1 capsule instead of 2 suggested for the B Complex and 2 instead of 4 capsules suggested for the activated multivitamin. I'm trying to stay healthy and do what's right while still keeping budget but I'd do what's right if I actually have to do the suggested number. Also with regard to the DNS, is there any reason why it has added sugar in the ingredients? Is it for a particular reason or merely for taste?

Christina: Are infrared sauna and proteolytic enzymes (taken on an empty stomach) safe when you have breast implants? Thank you for the wonderful information provided in your podcasts.

Christina: When I exercise or do a physical activity requiring more oxygen, I have to yawn to bring in the oxygen that I need. Otherwise, I feel like I am not getting enough oxygen. Is this normal? Thank you for all your help and advice.

Thank you for tuning into today's Cabral HouseCall and be sure to check back tomorrow where we answer more of our community’s questions!

Today’s show was a little bit of an unplanned rant ; )
 
I meant it in the best way possible, but I saw these fad diet gurus retracting their beliefs well before they even knew they were headed down the wrong path… 
 
And the only reason I bring it up is to help all the people they inevitably cause harm to in their misinformation wake…
 
So on today’s #CabralConcept 2154 we’ll dig into the worst way to fast and without naming names add a fun little fad diet rant in to serve as a warning against future insane diets - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend!

I’m looking forward to sharing with you some of our community’s questions that have come in over the past few weeks…

Let’s get started!   

Abigail: Hi Dr. Cabral! I'm an IHP, and I have a client with Down syndrome (18 yr old female) who is starting to experience symptoms of acute regression. We have done lab testing and are working on correcting her "root cause" imbalances, but I was wondering if you could point me toward any resources (podcasts, websites, etc) to further my education in this area since I don't know much about acute regression and how to help "reverse" it naturally. All of the information I've found so far is from more of a conventional perspective, so any of your insight would be very helpful!

Adrianne: Hey Doc! Thanks for showing up everyday to make the world a healthier place. My sister in law was told by her dermatologist that she has barnacles. She showed me one next to her eye. Google calls it Seb-k and says the cause is unknown. I am thinking maybe a deficiency or toxicity. Can you shed any light on the subject? Thanks!

Laura: I would like to ask two questions.1- I have recently purchased your Daily Nutritional Support. On the list of ingredients is Zinc Picolinate. According to some studies it has been found that this form of Zinc may cause liver damage. Do you believe this to be true? If so are you considering changing to another form of Zinc? 2- I have read your book The Rain Barrel Effect. I enjoyed it and am very interested in helping a family member with MS. Have you found that going through your cleanses has helped reverse the symptoms of MS and or cured anyone from this condition? Thank you for your time. Laura

Darren:Good day Dr Cabral. Is there any truth to ghee is used in ayurveda as the first thing in the morning on an empty stomach as doing this will lower cholesterol levels, aid in unblocking "clogged" arteries (by preventing endothelial cells) and getting a daily supply of omega 3s and vitamin E? Or is that overstating its properties? I know it's a saturated fat but are there any concerns with using it or who should avoid it if any? Thanks for your help

Concerned Mother: Dear Dr. Cabral, I've been listening to your show for a while now and am working with one of your health coaches. I'm very happy seeing some changes in my own health. I know my son needs help too and I'm hoping you can tell us the best way to begin. He is 9 years old and was adopted as an infant. We know his birth mother smoked regularly during the pregnancy. He had a regular delivery but was not breast fed. He's had a few rounds of antibiotics over the years for rashes that turned into infections. He is overweight (none of the other members of our family are so I wonder if genetics play a role in that) and has recently developed asthma. He has always had a runny nose and gets rashes and hives regularly. He has learning disabilities and when he was younger he needed occupational therapy for eating and walking. He is still lagging in physical skills and coordination and will stuff his mouth full and not chew his food well no matter how much coaching we offer. I sometimes think his sense of fullness may not be functioning well. Every time I go to the doctor for any of these issues I end up feeling blamed for his weight but they don't offer any really helpful advice. Where would you recommend we start in helping him rebalance his body? Thank you so much for all your help!

Simon: Hi Dr Cabral – I am wondering if there are any downsides to taking L-glutamine long term? I have been taking it consistently for the last 5 or so years, ranging from a steady 5mg per day, to larger less-frequent doses (10-15mg) on strength training days only. As someone who both exercises frequently and has been trying to heal ongoing IBS/gut permeability issues, glutamine seems like a great dual-benefit supplement but I just want to check there aren’t any long-term downsides. Thanks!

Farren: Good day Dr Cabral. I know you won't get this in November but like 8 weeks from now sometime in late December, early January (Happy New year BTW) but what are your thoughts on drives like "No Nut November"? In line with with what you teach on mindset and motivational Mondays, I believe you'd lean toward avoiding porn given what it can do your brain but are there benefits to not ejaculating or abstaining over a given period? One elder while growing up said its always good to keep the "blood flowing" there even if you don't climax while I see so-called experts saying you should often cause of benefits ranging from better sleep to prostrate health. I read somewhere in ayurveda where they said different doshas should have different requirements. Hope this didn't come across too crass. Do you have thoughts on this?

Erin: Asthma! What is the root cause of asthma? I have been told magnesium deficiency but would love to hear your input. Thanks so much I really do love listening to your podcasts.

Deanna: hi Dr. Cabral, I was wondering what you think about certain alternative detox methods - in particular, would you recommend zeolite, and if so, what form? And also I have been hearing about chlorine dioxide which seems quite controversial. I rely on your opinion about these things. I also did order your detox protocol, so I will be trying that as well. I feel it is so important right now to be detoxifying. Thank you for your help! Deanna

Jenna: Are you familiar with the Jovi Patch? I'm seeing good feedback about it in regards to helping with menstrual cramps. Apparently it's a patch that you put over your uterus and it "works to pick up the message your body is sending out, rerouting it and absorbing it like a sponge using nanocapacitors." I'm a tiny bit skeptical on how this works and if it's safe and wanted your perspective before I try it.

Sheba: Hello, I was asked about ways to detox the the vaccine. Do you have any suggestions? I want to share this information as unbias as possible and I will represent IHP to the best of my abilities. Please let me know if you have any advice or suggestions on this matter. Best, Sheba

Anonymous: Hi Dr. Cabral, I am 27 years old, resistance train 5-6 days a week, and have a very good body composition. Since high school, I have had a large bump under my right nipple that has not gone away. I got a sonogram in college that did not show any cancer or tumor, and it seems closer to the description of gyno, but only on one side. Overtraining during high school and college impacted my hormones, of which I am still trying to fully recover from. The bump was noticeable before I began rigorously training for athletics, but I am sure the hormone damage did not help in it subsiding. My question is as to whether or not you would recommend looking into your DHEA supplement, or if I am too young to begin something like that. My life now is fairly stressful, but manageable, I am an engineer, lift weights (as previously mentioned), walk at least 10,000 steps a day, eat very healthy, and also struggle with digestive issues (story for another day). Any recommendations you have are greatly appreciated and thank you so much for what you do. We, the listeners, are forever in debt.
