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…

 

Richard: Hello Dr. Cabral, I would really appreciate it if you would provide your thoughts on dry fasting. I tried to search for previous shows where you spoke of this but couldn't find one where you spoke of dry fasting in detail, it's pros, cons and if there is ever a time where it should be used. Some say its dangerous and should never be done and others think it has its uses. I have a lot of cysts/lipomas (not sure which one) all over my body and a podcast I was listening to said drying fasting might work to get rid of them because when the body is dehydrated it will look for dysfunctional cells, tissues etc. to dissolve and extract water from. What do you think about all this? Thank you for answering my question, hope you are having a great day!

 

Gail: Hi Dr. C! Thank you so much for all that you offer to us humans seeking to learn and find health and balance in our lives. I am currently going through the program to become certified as an IHP level 1 and then level 2 health coach to add to my work as an acupuncturist and I'm so excited to have finally found the knowledge I have been looking for. I am curious to hear your thoughts about Rifaximin to treat SIBO. My friend was diagnosed by her ND with SIBO and Rifaximin is part of her protocol to treat it. Thank you for your wisdom on this and so many other health-related topics!

 

Michael: Hi Dr Cabral, what could cause burning/pin sensations in the hands and fit ? Tested negative on h pylori and candida. Tested positive for mold toxicity and possible sibo.

 

Michael: Hi Dr Cabral, what would cause someone to wake up about every 2 hours at night to frequently urinate?

 

Anonymous: Hi there! Thank you for all the great work that you do! It has made a huge impact on my life. I have been working on improving my gut health for almost 4 months now and I have noticed some improvements. I realized that i am extremely sensitive to lectins. I have always been but i never knew they had a name. So what i'm wondering is, can i still use oils from lectin-heavy nuts or seeds on my skin? Things like sunflower or chia seed oil? I am also trying to resolve a histamine issue that I have which came as a result of my leaky gut. So while i have eliminated high histaminr foods for a while, i am noy sure if i can still use them topically e.g with avocado hair masks. I look forward to your insights!

 

Jade: Hello, I have recently come out of having 4 months of antibiotics in hospital, plus have also come off my contraception; the hormone coil. Obviously this has sent me hrmones and metabolism into chaos, I feel so puffy and bloated and lethargic. I am such a healthy person, eat well and exercise and I can barely get out of bed! I am about to start a liver cleanse, but would you recommned this and can you suggest anything else to help? Thanks so much

Jul 23, 2022

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: 

 

Richard: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have recently been looking for a new blender and it seems like much to my surprise, all the descent premium or high end blenders have a plastic jar. After some time of doing research I had decided on purchasing the ninja but then found out that the jar of this particular blender is plastic. This is really concerning to me because it's something that I use everyday and I don't want to be ingesting chemicals from the plastic. I know a lot of these blenders claim that the plastic is BPA free but from what I understand, when BPA is not used they use other chemicals that are just as bad if not worse than BPAs. I also mix in hot water for my morning smoothies to warm them up a bit since I use a lot of frozen fruits so that would make things more problematic. I also use hot water to clean the blender since sometimes there are stains I need to remove. Is this a legitimate concern or am I missing something here? I would love to hear your thoughts on this and some potential alternatives. Thank you for all your help, it is much appreciated!

 

Kristen: Hello! I’ve learned and been helped so much through you! After a “virus” my chest feels so much pressure, I went to a cardio dr and all checks out. I do have MTHFR I read that “ Homozygous variants, and some heterozygotes, may see a decrease in the metabolic pathway that converts folate and folic acid (vitamin Bs) into active forms. There can be a build up of homocysteine (amino acid) which has been linked to cardiovascular issues. ” I’m trying to turn over every leaf to get to the bottom of the random pressure when I lay down. Is It possible they are related or is there a connection with either one of these issues. I’ve done 5 protocols in over a year with significant improvement! To which I’m soo grateful to you and your staff!

 

Darren: Good day Dr Cabral. I see un ayurveda, they extol the benefits of ghee. I use it but recently started looking at the nutrition facts label and all the grass fed New Zealand based ghee brands I have seen say they contain some trans fat. Is pure grass-fed ghee of transfat concern? ? If ghee has trans-fat, why is ghee called healthy? Or is it a misperception given New Zealand is often touted as favoured by nature when making milk, with a climate, soils, and plentiful water that generate an ideal environment for growing healthy grass and New Zealand livestock access open pasture year-round, meaning space to roam and follow their natural affinity outdoors. Care to make us understand? Thank you

 

Lori: Hi, I am considering enrolling in your certification program. I am wondering, however, how to utilize it to practice legally in IL and many other states where it seems only an RD or CNS are allowed to make nutritional recommendations to clients. Thank you! ~Lori

 

Hazel: Im at a loss for breakfast I have high oxalates, a latex alergy and spontaneous uticaria/ dermatographia. I am following your mediteranean diet Many thanks. I listen to all your podcasts

 

Cody: Hi Dr. Cabral - I get acid reflux, mild diarrhea, and intestinal pain on my left side when I eat mildly spicy or citrus foods. I was curious if I had H Pylori, and I did a stool test and upper endoscopy which both came back negative. I also did an organic acid test which showed high levels of yeast. Before I start the CBO protocol, I decided to try some supplements targeted towards H Pylori just in case due to my symptoms. I've been taking Manuka honey, 1/2 cup cabbage juice, and L. Reuteri. I was fine for 2 weeks, but I'm now starting to get intestinal pain on my left side. I was planning to add mastic gum, but I've put that on hold now. Would you recommend stopping the H Pylori supplements and starting the CBO protocol? Compared to the CBO protocol, I've taken much less potent antimicrobials/antifungals in the past which started out fine but then gradually gave me intestinal pain. This is what led me to trying a treatment targeted towards H Pylori, which testing says I don't have, in the hope that it would allow me to tolerate the CBO protocol better, but I'm already having pain which I suspect is from the strength of the Manuka honey. In addition, zinc supplements give me intestinal pain, but I also take DGL licorice which is fine. Thank you for your time and advice.

Does the future of exercise come in pill form?

 

Today I want to share with you some new research that lends insight into the connection between exercise and hunger that could pave the way to producing a pill that provides similar benefits to exercise…

 

And while I am all for scientific advancement, I feel there are some key health benefits to exercise and moving our bodies that may not have been taken into account.

 

Join me on today’s #CabralConcept 2358 where I go over exactly what this research shows and why I think exercise is still the best medicine – Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

There are many reasons someone may choose to take oral contraceptives…

 

Whether it be to prevent pregnancy, reduce PCOS symptoms, balance hormones, or a variety of other reasons.

 

It’s not my place to be telling you what you should and should not be doing, but as an Integrative Health Practitioner I feel it is important that we address the dangers of taking birth control and what to watch out for if you choose to use it.

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2357 I want to go over what your doctor won't tell you about the dangers of oral contraceptives/birth control – 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…

 

Sierra: Hi Dr. Cabral! For awhile now I have been experiencing dizziness and light headedness when walking around inside certain stores, however once I leave the store I feel better. I’ve read about it being a vestibular disorder and this condition being recognized as “supermarket disorder” or “visual vestibular mismatch”. Although it affects me the most when I’m inside stores, it also affects me when I play certain video games as well, or when I’m around a lot of people. This affects me 50% or more of the time. My question is, do you have any recommendations that may be able to help subdue the affects of this condition? Thank you!

 

Kelsey: Hello! I am wondering if you can clarify the difference between a "Reacted" supplement versus an "Elemental." I work at a place that sells practitioner grade supplements and my boss asked me if I knew the answer to that. I did not, but I thought of someone who would be better able to clarify! :) You, of course! Thank you for your help!

 

Anonymous: Is it possible for an overload of histamine to affect female hormones and cause estrogen dominance as a secondary effect? I am asking because we recently had "oakpocalypse" here in Houston (tree pollen above 12,000, which was double the previous all-time high record), and I was having symptoms of high histamine, but I also started having some symptoms of estrogen dominance (no other life or dietary changes in that time period other than the extreme allergen exposure) - when I googled this quickly, I found some articles off the bat that suggested histamine could increase estrogen, so I wanted to hear your expertise and any recommendations for what someone should do if this happens (other than your standard allergy advice ex. Vit. C, quercetin, bromelain, preventing allergens from entering home, Nettie pot, etc.)

 

Karim: What would you say is worse, Coke Zero or glass of wine? Hahaha. Sorry if it sounds silly but I’m just interested in your point of view.

 

Marnie: Hi Dr Cabral-I will be having an Inspire implant placed for sleep apnea. I will be having antibiotics perioperatively and postoperative. What must I do to protect my microbiome? Thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge. You are a Godsend! 

 

Jordan: Hey Cabral! This is kind of an odd question. I have been having extremely frequent sleep paralysis and muscle numbness ever since I got covid. I know I am not alone in this as I know someone else that has been going through this as well. I have seen that there is now new research seeing a correlation between the two. I’m just wondering if you have any suggestions regarding sleep paralysis. Thanks!

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: 

 

Anonymous: Hi. Thanks so much for taking our questions on your show. I love hearing other people get their answers and learning while I listen. I heard on a previous show that fine lines or wrinkles around the mouth area is not a result of aging but from other causes. I am only 47 and have recently (within the last two years) noticed a significant increase in vertical lines around both my upper and lower lips. Is this from nutrient deficiencies or something else? I did the big 5 labs, have been working with an Equilife IHP, and have been using your products now for 8 months. I was hoping the increased nutrition plus protocols I've completed (21 day detox, CBO, parasites, heavy metal) would have helped but the lines just keep getting more noticeable. Is there any way to get these to go away or can I only hope to keep them from getting worse? Thank you so much for your help!

 

Wendy: Hi Dr Stephen, can i ask if EMS training is beneficial for weight loss, especially for people over 45 years old? Doing lots of high intensity activities may not be suitable for people aged 45 and above.

 

Paloma: Thank you so much and your team for all your hard work every single day! I was wondering whether some PMS symptoms are normal or does it always indicate hormonal imbalances?

 

Paloma: Me again! I once asked you whether you thought cardio was necessary if I got my 10k steps every day + 4x a week resistance training with bands & free weights and you said it wasn't. I'm a 25 year old Vata so I don't like doing a lot of cardio because I lose muscle very easily. You've been speaking a lot about cardio recently so I'm wondering whether your answer would be different now? I don't have a lot of free time so to implement some jogging or biking would mean taking out 1 or 2 days of resistance training…

 

Tina: First off thank you and your team for all you do. I am a 53 years old. I did the big 5, the gut and bacteria test, and mold test. I am 12 weeks into my protocol working with an IHP level 2. I have done the 14 day functional detox. I am 8 weeks into the CBO protocol. I just finished the intestinal cleanse. I did a parasite cleanse and liver flush. My morning cortisol is very low and my evening cortisol is very high. Thyroid was a little high. I’ve been taking supplements to support my hormones and I have been doing the deep sleep protocol because I was experiencing really bad insomnia. I still continue to wake up at least four times a night. I’m very thirsty, I wake up startled, I wake up starving , and of course then I have to go to the bathroom because I have been drinking. I’ve been doing the deep sleep protocol, I’ve been wearing blue blockers before bed. I recently bought a lief device because my HRV is very very low. On average my number is 16. I also still have very bad Reynards. My fingertips go numb and purple. I also have this scab in my nose that clears up but then comes back quickly. TPOab is 32. Which is very very low. Any other suggestions on what I could be doing? Is my rain barrel that full? Do I need to keep doing functional detoxes? Could it be lyme? Thank you !!

 

Ryan: Hey doc Cabral. Wanted to ask a question regarding Graves’ disease vs hashimotos. When testing thyroid antibodies, i recently heard Amy myers say TSH receptor antibodies is more telling of graves and the thyroid peroxidase and thyroglobulin markers are more telling for hashi’s I wanted your thoughts on this, as I am testing these markers every few months in conjunction with near daily red light therapy exposure to thyroid. I did see a reduction in TPO antibodies from about 158 in November last year to 45 this past February. So it is cool to think that it may be lowered due to that exposure. I am a previous Graves patient. But will be looking to get the TSH receptor antibody test next time. Have you seen red light therapy work for these issues? Have you ever noticed any difference in testing those anti body markers for different patients? If TPO is lowering is that a sign that inflammation as a whole for the thyroid is lowering?

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2350 I would like to share with you the top 2 ways that damage or thin out your hair and what you can do to prevent it- Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

We all have stories that we tell ourselves…

 

Whether we learned them as children or developed them through life experiences as an adult, these stories shape who we are today.

 

While most of these stories have allowed us to get to where we are today, it is important to note that oftentimes they hold us back from reaching the goals we have set for ourselves.

 

The good news is that YOU are the one telling the story which means YOU can change it!

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2348 I want to share with you how to recognize the stories that are holding you back and what you can do to move forward – 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…

 

Anonymous: I wrote in on FB and your support email and was referred to ask here. Can you tell me why the Omega 3 capsules and liquid has different EPA/DHA ratios and the liquid has added DPA. What would be the reason a person would select one option or the other besides not wanting a capsule or liquid?

 

Rani: I have searched the podcast archives and haven't found anything on this topic so I was wondering if you could touch on it. Could you explain the reticuloendothelial system (RES)? Specifically the iron recycling system. I see many practitioners talk about the iron recycling system & how supplementing with iron is unnecessary and possibly dangerous. I would love to get your explanation on this topic. Thank you as I value your knowledge and wisdom.

 

Samantha: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you for your time. 10 years ago I had what I thought was painful dermatitis/eczema on my hands, but looks like Chilblains. 2 years ago, my family and I found out we had mold toxicity and are still working through protocol with a functional practitioner (my suspicion is years ago, chilblains was my first symptom from an overactive immune response due to the unknown ongoing mold exposure). Do you have any insight on what root cause(s) is for chilblains and if it’s related to histamine and what can be done to heal from the disease, not just manage it. Thank you, Samantha

 

Alicja (Ah-leets-yah): Hi Dr. Cabral, My question today is about protocols and sleep. I started CBO protocol and my sleep got worse. Every day when I took CBO supplements I woke up between 3:00-3:30 am. When I'm up at this time - there is no chance for me to go back to sleep. I took a break from the supplements and my sleep went back to normal. I'm not sure what that means. Meantime I got my stool test results that detected one protozoa (Entamoeba coli) so I decided to do parasite protocol. The same thing happened. I started taking supplements (Para Support) and I started waking up between 3:00-3:30am. What do you think is happening? Any thoughts how to work around that? I need my sleep for proper healing. As always I appreciate your help and thank you greatly!

 

Alicja (Ah-leets-yah):One more question: My test results also showed I have very low levels of pancreatic enzyme: elastase. (It should be more than 200 ug/mL and I only have 28) I take digestive enzymes with every meal. Is there anything else I could do? Do you think HCL would be better for me? Or should I take HCL together with digestive enzymes? Is low elastase reversible or most likely I'm gonna be stuck with low numbers for the rest of my life and rely on digestive enzymes for the rest of my life too? I would love to hear your thoughts. I trust your knowledge very much. Thank you for you your amazing work.

 

Summer: Hi Dr. Cabral! I’d love to hear your thoughts on plant based protein powders. I don’t know if I can use actual company names or not, but I’ve used Genuine Health and Sun Warrior over the last few years and I notice that I CAN tolerated plant based protein in a powder but CANNOT tolerate most plant proteins in whole food form. Looks like both companies are calling their products fermented which also raises a couple of questions. I know you suggest cutting anything fermented if you have gut dysbiosis, but how could any of those ‘good healthy’ fermented bacteria survive the processing required to make these powders? So is it necessary to cut these powders with gut dysbiosis? Is the purpose of the fermentation in these cases meant to purely break down the plant into a more digestible form rather than trying to use it to repopulate the gut with good fermented bacteria as you would do with homemade ferments like sauerkraut? I can understand that it might help break down the plant, but I don’t see how any good bacteria would ever survive that processing. Thanks so much, and have a great day!

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: 

 

Zoe: Hi there! Just listened your episode “how to cure constipation” as I am constipated right now. You mentioned that you would recommend an international cleanse. I didn’t see the brand in the show notes. Could you please tell me which brand you recommend for that? Also I have already purchased the 21 day detox. Should I do a intensional cleanse first and then detox? Or is it okay to just start with the detox? I am getting my hormonal birth control out on the 22nd so I was planning on starting the detox on the day of removal or next day.

 

Anonymous: Dr. Cabral, by the time you answer this, I will have completed the CBO protocol and likely be continuing through the CBO Finisher. I am currently beginning month 3 of the CBO and have a need for more improvements in my constipation/trapped gas symptoms. I have been very diligent, and followed the protocol exactly as recommended. I tried the intestinal cleanse on week 6 and experienced the constipation and lack of motility in over two years, and I took the binder and 4 capsules 3x per day for 5 days with only one bowel movement. If this protocol does not provide any improvements, where do I go from here? What testing do you recommend? (I did the HMTA and Stool Test leading into the CBO). Thank you!!

 

Samantha: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you for all that you do! I would love your insight. I'm a 30-year-old woman from New York. I recently had surgery on my right side Bartholin gland. I had an allergic reaction to either the anesthesia or intravenous antibiotics they gave me during the procedure. I'm seeing an allergist in a few weeks to figure that out. I had dermatitis that spread all over my torso, chest, arms, and back; it was pretty severe. A dermatologist prescribed me a ten-day taper protocol of Prednisone (which was really intense!). At the time of writing this, I'm done with the Prednisone and the bumps from the allergic reaction are gone, but I'm still SO itchy and I'm breaking out in hives. The itching feels like it's coming from the inside out if that makes sense. Actually scratching the area doesn't provide relief. I've been diagnosed with mast cell activation syndrome and I'm listening to your previous podcasts about it now. I've also been taking allergy medication and eating a low histamine diet. This combination provides very slight relief. I feel hopeless and want to feel like myself again. Thank you for any guidance that you may have. With Gratitude, Samantha

 

Stefanie: Hi Dr. Cabral, You are truly amazing! I love all that you do and am so appreciated for finding equi.life and these podcasts! You are a blessing I have had hypothyroidism and addison's disease for 5 years. Recently my doctor discovered that I also have Polythemia Vera. In your experience have you seen all of these diseases to be related? I'm trying to find the right direction on how to naturally lower my red blood cell count without having to take blood medication to lower this. Have you worked with patients with polythemia vera? I would love any advice on where to begin healing this blood disorder.

 

Cassie: Hi Dr Cabral. Thank you for all you do for everyone here. It’s appreciate by so many of us! I have this “anxiety rash” is what my doctor labeled it as, but it happens with any heightened emotion, happy or sad and when I’m nervous. It starts on my neck and moves to my chest and when it’s really bad it goes to my arms. Splotches on my face can appear too and my cheeks are always sort of red anyways. Sometimes a trigger is as simple as a customer at work complimenting me, and I feel it happening, which I don’t really understand. Or being excited about something. Not all the time, but sometimes it can feel like a rush of adrenaline. It’s come to the point where I feel uncomfortable in my own skin and I’ve hidden it for years by not wearing shirts or anything that goes below my collar bones or people always ask what’s wrong. I’m getting married this summer and it makes me nervous I’m going to be a red mess because I know I’ll feeling all the emotions that day. Doctors have just thrown anxiety meds at me, and that is not what I’m looking for. I am a very active person, exercise a lot and eat pretty healthy, I have noticed the healthier I eat the better it is but I can’t figure out triggers with food. Any advice is so greatly appreciated! Thank you, Cassie

 

Marleen: My bloodwork showed high B12 but I don't supplement how is this possible?

Over 70% of people in developed nations are overweight, yet somehow most are undernourished…

 

In our fast-paced world filled with quick fixes and over-processed food, it’s easy to understand that many people are overconsuming calories, but the food they are eating is lacking in the sufficient micro nutrients that their bodies need.

 

Recently I was asked to consult on a project and provide insight into the macros and micros needed for daily consumption and advise my thoughts on when and if supplements were needed.

 

On today’s #CabralConcept 2344 I’d like to share with you some of the research from this project and how to ensure that you are providing your body with the essential micro nutrients that it needs- Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought and if you have any questions!

Research shows us that there is a link between the APOe4 blood type and Alzheimer's, cardiovascular disease, and other inflammatory conditions…

 

Having this blood type may leave you more susceptible to Alzheimer's but it does not determine your destiny.

 

Knowledge is power and understanding that you are genetically predisposed can help you take action and create positive lifestyle changes that can greatly reduce your risk.

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2342 I want to share with you more information on the link between the APOe4 blood type and Alzheimer's and what you can do if you are a carrier– Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

One small decision over the course of the day may not seem like very much…

 

However, each one of those small decisions begins to accumulate over time…

 

If you continue to make the same choices you are making today, will you be where you want to be in 5 years?

 

If your actions and habits are not leading you on the path to your goal, how can you change them and create daily habits that will?

 

On today’s #CabralConcept 2341 I want to share with you how volume-based thinking can help you change the course of your actions, develop new habits and improve in any area of your 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…

 

Khadijah: Hi! I have a few questions about POTS. Basically, last year my doctor prescribed me four different birth controls within five months since I was getting side effects, and these hormonal changes triggered PCOS. I broke out I. Terrible acne and my hair started falling out s my dermatologist prescribed spirolactone. When I was on this medication I was passing out, had terrible joint pain, and fainting. I was bed ridden for weeks my side effects were so bad. I went off out it realizing it was the medication, but it also caused lasting side effects including reactive hypoglycemia and POTs. I’ve changed my diet from vegan to keto and that’s helped with the hypoglycemia, but my heart is still super irregular and I’ll start sweating, getting incredibly anxious and have a very fast or very low heart rate. Also I just feel so tired and my hands and feet get cold and numb. How do I heal this? I want to exercise and go out without feeling awful, and drink alcohol and coffee without feeling like a may have a heart attack.

 

Alicja (Ah-leets-yah): Hi Dr. Cabral My question today is about ammonia levels. I run Candida, Metabolic and Vitamins Test and it showed I have a very high levels on Ammonia Excess (Orotic) I believe that also that high ammonia contributes to my bed sleep at night. How can I get rid of that ammonia? I once red that taking L-ornithine helps. What are your thoughts on that? Thank you so much for your answer. I appreciate your help and wish you and wonderful day.

 

Gregg: Hi Dr. Cabral - love the pod and the help you motivation you provide daily! Question: what are your thoughts on lectins and their effect on gut health? Others in the healthcare space have suggested that foods like beans, bell peppers and tomatoes can contribute to leaky gut due to their lectins creating microscopic tears in the intestinal wall. Are these valid concerns? Is there research to back this up? thanks again! gregg in seattle.

 

Komal: Hi I did my 21 day detox. Can I keep doing another round or is there a limit

 

Bridget: My friends 12 year old son was born with no eyebrows. He does have a few hairs that are blonde but you can't really see them unless you look hard. He has brown hair otherwise. Do you know what could cause this? As he gets older, the kids at school get meaner. He does have allergies to peanuts, animals and is a bit overweight. Other than that he seems like a healthy kid. Thanks so much for all of your hard work helping the community.

 

Summer: Hi doc! I’m over halfway through the CBO protocol now, and I’m noticing a huge increase in plaque and calculus build up on my teeth. Ever since I cleaned up my diet about 5 or 6 years ago, I noticed I would barely build up any plaque and never built up calculus. I couldn’t believe how clean my teeth always felt and always got comments from the my dentist and hygienist. But now all of a sudden after starting this protocol, I always have ‘fuzzy’ teeth and it drives me crazy! I was a dental assistant for 7 years and still work in the dental field. Do you think perhaps this could be a vitamin or mineral imbalance? I’m wondering if I’m getting too much of something. I take 1-2 scoops of DNS daily alongside my other supplements that I’ve always taken. The only supplements that have changed would be adding DNS, switching to EquiLife alkalizing vitamin c, omega 3, and daily thyroid support. I also started taking Hyland’s bio plasma 12 cell salts religiously. I would love to hear your thoughts on this! Thanks for your time!

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: 

 

Michael: Hi Stephen, hope you are keeping well. I’m an Addison’s disease patient since July 2021 after a long few months trying to get a diagnosis - brain fog, weight loss, anxiety and panic attacks, adrenal crisis and OCD. I’m hearing a lot about different diets for autoimmune diseases and wondering your thoughts on cutting out gluten sugar and dairy to help. Currently taking hydro and fludrocortisone daily. Also in terms of vitamins what should I be taking daily just need some help getting my life back on track. Also I’ve had covid twice which def didn’t help with addisons. Recently came across your podcast on adrenal fatigue and heard you have addisons as well. The thought of being on these heavy meds for life is kind of scary. I had all the symptoms you had and would love your opinion. Thanks Michael

 

Rachel: Hi there, Just wondering if you could do a podcast on your recommendations for children and supplements. I'd like to find out if it's necessary to provide children with Multivitamins and/or what supplements you suggest they take in conjunction with a balanced diet. Thank you.

 

Nicole: Hi Dr. Cabral. I have a question about my ectopic heartbeats. I've been battling chronic fatigue, stress, and gut issues for a few yrs now after having tragedy after tragedy in my family happen. Anyway I did do the oat test and HTMA as well as food sensitivity test and have a plan going forward to heal and seal my gut. However one very mysterious symptom I've been having ( out of a few actually) is that I get ectopic heartbeats all the time! Not just a few but hundreds a day. I did a heart ultrasound as well as 24 hr heart monitor and they found nearly 2500 pvc and pacs in a 24 hour period. These tend to happen during early morning and in the late afternoon into the evenings. They have gone away for weeks at a time entirely only to return once again for weeks- months. My cardiologist says they are benign and that its just anxiety. Wjat are your thoughts. I don't feel like I'm an anxious person although I do know with my ongoing health challenges and emotional stresses in the past this could have played a role to some degree. My thyroid panel is optimal at 30mg armour thyroid no no more antibodies present. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

 

Sarah: Is it possible to completely get rid of thyroid antibodies? Mine has hovered around 300 for years and deciding if damage is done and should just go on thyroid med instead of chasing full reversal! Thankful for people like you putting in the time to help the world!

 

Courtney: Hello! Your story resonated with me as my 5 year old daughter has been on a daily 6ml antibiotic the last 2 years for recurring UTI’s due to holding and reflux to the kidneys. Doctors believe she will grow out of it. I’m very concerned that the daily nitrofurantoin is ruining her gut flora and what this will mean for her future health. Even with the daily antibiotic she will have a UTI once every 3 months and will be on a full 10 day course of another antibiotic (keflex or Bactrum). She will be starting biofeedback when she is 6 (October). We give her a daily probiotic: Jarrow YumYum dophilius. What more can we do to help her break this cycle, get her off a daily antibiotic and get her gut health back? Thank you so much! Courtney

 

Rita: Hi! I’ve attempted the CBO protocol twice but can never seem to follow through properly all the way to 12 weeks. The problem is that I own a bakery and am always tasting our products for quality a few times a month, especially when we’re creating new flavors. My bakery business truly brings me and my customers joy and fulfillment, so quitting that is currently not an option. I’ve taken the food sensitivity test and am highly sensitive to gluten, dairy and eggs. I don’t need to have entire servings of our pastries but I’m wondering if this will affect the effectiveness of the CBO protocol during and after the process. I know I desperately need to rebalance my gut but don’t know how to balance this with my livelihood. Please help! Thank you so much.

Did you know that we have 4 times the amount of lymph in our bodies than we do blood?

 

So why is it that we almost never hear about this crucial health system of the body?

 

If your body is not able to properly move this fluid (it’s a manual operation), your lymphatic system can get backed up and blocked…

 

And while there is no alarm bell to signal when your lymphatic system is overloaded, there are signs from your body that it needs help…

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2337 I want to help you understand how this manifests in the body and share with you the top 10 signs and symptoms of poor drainage and detox – Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

For years now we have known that Glyphosate is harmful to our health, yet it continues to be the largest and most widely used pesticide… 

 

In 2015, Glyphosate was deemed a “probably carcinogen,” yet pushback from major corporations, media marketing tactics, and financial incentives have skewed the perception of this pesticide and enabled its continued use.

 

Today, I want to share with you some of the research on glyphosate and its link to “probably causing” cancer, as well as give you some tips on how to avoid it in your foods…

 

Join me on today’s #CabralConcept 2335 where we will be talking about what Glyphosate is, why it’s still being used and how to avoid it – Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!
