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…

Tennea: Hi Dr Cabral, I’m currently doing your IHP training. I wanted to know if you have any advice on the condition called Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) I had an accident 4 years ago leaving me “permanently disabled” in my left arm, hand, and shoulder after breaking my elbow (terrible triad). And I ended up with this nerve chronic pain CRPS. I also developed a anaphylactic reaction to seafood last year (I LOVE seafood), I believe it’s related to the CRPS. I would be eternally great full for your advice or thoughts on this. Warm regards Teena

Lara: Hi, dr. Cabral :) I’m hoping you could talk about the “extra” ingredients in supplements.. like different fillers, additives, preservatives..? Which ones should we be careful about, which different names do they use for the same crappy substance, for example, citric acid is in lots of them, also lactic acid, etc. What kind of a capsule (vegan) should it be and so on? Would love to buy extra clean supplements but sometimes it’s really difficult to get them, especially with the crazy prices.. Thank you! Happy healing, everyone!  

Rachel: Body odour. I sometimes find that I have very very strong body odour in my armpits. It's not the "normal" BO smell. It is pungent but more like a strong gasoline smell. When it happens it's almost as if I can't wash it off. Showering and washing my armpits helps lessen it, but the smell is still there. Any idea what the cause could be or how to rectify it? Thank you!

Debra: I have mast cell disease,, hereditary alpha tryptaemia syndrome, and Intracranaian increased hypertension which causes debilitating migraines. I have done your detox and despite the debilitating migraines getting worse I stuck it out. I did the hair migraine erase test and I had to stop all supplements recommended for now. I was reacting to everything. Especially the shakes high in vitamin A. Do you have experience in IIH aka pseudo tumor? Would love to work together further. I'm a huge fan and desperate to heal.thanks, Debra

Nick: Hi Dr. Cabral! I have two questions for you — one, i recently had a snowboarding accident where i hit my head and got a CT scan and MRI which showed a Cavernoma in the back upper outer edge of my head. Do you have any natural remedies advice for controlling / improving it? i’ve had no symptoms and it was found incidentally. (i’m 25 years old) my second question is — they told me i will need to monitor it probably 1-2 times a year with contrast and no contrast MRI. Should i be concerned with the gadolinium metal that’s used to contrast the MRI? if so, would you have any alternative suggestions (i.e. recommending no contrast) or any detox solutions you’d recommend if you think it’s necessary? thank you!

Karen: Hi Dr. Cabral - I recently found your practice and I love what you do. My question is - my son joined the navy and had extensive blood work done. He discovered that he has a high percentage of sickle cell trait. He was 1% from the navy's limit. Are there health issues associated with a higher percentage of this trait? Thank you so much! Karen

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: 

Chelsea: Hi Dr. Cabral! Two quick questions - I’m a healthy and active 30yo female and have a high running body temperature. My friends and my partner often comments that my skin is always hot to the touch almost like I have a fever but it’s my baseline, especially in the evening and overnight. I sweat easily and am a true pitta. Do you know why I might run so hot? I have stripped back most inflammatory foods after doing my lab testing and am in good health overall, and don’t have hot flashes or anything I’m just curious why I’m warmer than anyone I know! Second - my Oura ring shows me that I get almost all of my REM sleep between 6am -8am. Is this normal? This means any time I have to get up early I miss out on most of my rem, when when I try to go to bed earlier. I’d estimate most nights I’m fully asleep before 11 and always practice good sleep hygiene to maximise my deep and rem cycles. Is this normal/is there anything I can do to get more rem before 6am? Thank you! Chelsea
 
Jill: Hi Dr Cabral. Thank you 100 times over for changing my life. Question I go to bed around 11 but around 2-3 am I start itching uncontrollably until I wake up. All over really but then specifically in one spot on the inside of my thigh. It keeps me up all night. I have read It’s because of body temperature change, moisture etc I also have severe dry mouth upon waking? Is this simply dehydration? . I have an air purifier in my room and i drink water? Does this mean i need more? I try to slow down water before bed to avoid waking up to urinate. What am i missing or what Would you suggest? What exactly is going on? Thank you again, Jill
 
Anonymous: Hi! I am such a huge fan of the podcast! It has truly taught me a lot. I have been learning a lot about ayurveda lately, but something that still confuses me is the ayurvedic season. In my country, we only have only rainy and sunny seasons, not the 4 seasons. I was wondering how that translates ayurvedically to the dosha seasons. I would like to tailor my diet to the season but I'm a bit unclear on how to do that. Also, my birth constitution is predominantly vata(50%) and the rest is pitta and kapha respectively. I understand that I need more grounding carbs, and wholesome oils and fats in my diet. Especially because I tend to have dry skin and dull low density hair. However, whenever I increase them, I gain a lot of weight especially in my face and belly. I assume it's insulin issues. I have tried detoxing and fasting but I still have a lot of food cravings. And it's not for refined carbs, it's for healthy foods like sweet potatoes and also fats like avocados . When I finish a meal, I feel physically full but mentally unsatisfied. I can't seem to stop eating even though I know that I've had enough. The feeling is so strong. I also can't seem to stop thinking about food even when I'm not eating. It's overwhelming. I would love your insight on this. Thank you for all you do!
 
Michelle: Hi Dr. Cabral. I hope this will be an interesting one for you to answer. Couple years ago before I knew what a proper functional medicine gut/stool test was I did one that gave me a list of foods to avoid and superfoods to maximize based on my microbiome. Avoid list foods were bell peppers, paprika, tomato and the reason given was because my gut had pepper and paprika mild mottle virus and tomato mosaic virus. Another food on the avoid list was coffee and the reason given was because the catechols in coffee can be unfavorable to my gut. What are coffee catechols? Is any of this real? Can the viruses be eradicated? I don't drink coffee but I want to try a coffee enema so will I be compromising my gut as the test suggests? Thanks for the guidance!
 
Marleena: Hi! Thank you so much for what you do! I’m a Vata 32 years old currently working through adrenal fatigue with your team. I’ve been trying to maximise my self-care so I started implementing hot Epsom salt baths 2x a week before dinner. My readiness in the Oura ring is not as great the morning after the days I do the bath as it looks like my heart rate is a little higher throughout the night. Any idea why these baths might be affecting me like that? I only stay for 10 min.
 
Brenda: Hi & thank you Dr Cabral for all your knowledge. What are your recommendations/experience with transdermal cream vs by mouth form. An Ayurvedic practitioner recommended chandika vit d transdermal cream instead of using a by mouth form of drops or supplements to prevent less liver overload . Appreciate your advice regarding this. Thank you

There are so many tips surrounding the topic of intermittent fasting that I consider it my job to simplify the overall dogma as much as humanly possible.
 
My goal for today's show is to teach how the body works and when it is most important to feed it based on bioenergetic needs.
 
I believe by the end of the show you will understand intuitively when you should be eating and how much, as well as when not to be consuming the largest amount of food during your day.
 
For this big quick intermittent fasting tip tune in to today's #CabralConcept 2253 for all the details – Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

I do my best to keep up with the latest science and the most innovative ways to help people boost their metabolism and lose unwanted weight…
 
However, there is a big distinction between what you can do that has short-term benefits, versus working at the root cause of a slow metabolism that will continue to work for years to come…
 
The difference comes between what you add to the body versus how you enable the body to function in a balanced state of equilibrium…
 
That's why on today's Cabral concepts to 2252 I'd like to share with you how to use internal versus external fat loss fixes to give you the best of both worlds and maximize your results – Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

Too much growth hormone can certainly cause potential issues during middle age, but too little can also spell disaster…

 

The reason is that your skin, hair, nails, muscle, connective tissue, and even your organs rely on having the proper amount of growth hormone…

 

That's why on today’s #CabralConcept 2251 I'll share how to increase your human growth hormone (HGH) naturally - Enjoy the show and let me know if you have any questions!

Are you having a tough time reaching the goals you envision and set for yourself?
 
If your first 90-day set of goals didn’t come to fruition the way you had hoped, it’s time to take an inventory check on where your time went and why it was reshuffled towards non-priorities…

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…

 
Justin: Hi Dr. Cabral, Does cold weather make you sick? My mother is paranoid about her body being cold even when she is inside, and being out in the cold weather she is even more paranoid. She is convinced cold weather will make her sick. I’ve looked this up and could not find anything on it. Thanks
 
Fay: I’m curious… Dr. Cabral you cured yourself of all your diseases. Drs tell me mine is not reversible. I have Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI).. my pancreas is not producing the enzymes I need to digest my fats, proteins and carbs. I have done your labs and your protocols. However, I am going to have this continued bacterial overgrowth because of the EPI. I am taking XXXX enzymes with all meals. My pancreas is fine, not enlarged. My liver is fine..I still have my gallbladder. I have no surgeries or diseases. I’ve done all the bloodwork, endoscopy  etc. I am fine except for the EPI. My Dr said I was drinking more alcohol than I should have on a daily basis. It’s been a few years now that I only have few drinks on weekends. I know I should have none.. I’ve tried that with no change. My question is can I heal my pancreas so that it makes the enzymes I need? Otherwise there’s no point in doing anything more to get rid of the excess bacteria I have.. it’ll just keep coming back. I suffer with bloating and burping. XXXX enzymes helps but I really don’t want to take these pills the rest of my life if I don’t have to. Thanks for any insight with this.
 
Kenny: Hi Dr. Cabral, a friend sent me an article saying that there’s health risks to taking melatonin. I take it at least 5 nights a week and I know in the past you’ve spoken very highly on melatonin and it’s safety. Here is a link to the article. It’s CNN, so I am very skeptical already. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts. Thx! https://www.cnn.com/2022/02/01/health/melatonin-overuse-wellness/index.html
 
Alicja: Hi Dr. Cabral, I love your podcast and have learned so much from it! I've had candida overgrowth and other gut issues that I have been working on. I've done a couple of protocols for candida and parasites in the past (not yours) but still experience lot's of bloating. I take probiotics daily. One of the probiotics I take has S.boulardi in it. I know it's a good yeast, but it still yeast. My question: can Saccharomyces boulardii make candida worse? I also had to take antibiotic recently (Xifaxan), so I want to bring good bacteria to my gut now. Will I benefit from s.boulardi, or can it make my candida worse? (I just purchased Complete Candida, Matabolic and Vitamins test from you and will retest for candida to see where I stand now, I'm curious about the "good fungi" and candida interaction)
 
Alicja: Hi again Dr. Cabral, I also would love to ask you about the medicianal mushrooms and candida overgrowth? Chaga, Reishi, Lion's Mane, Turkey Tail, Cordyceps etc. Can they be good for a person with gut imbalances and candida overgrowth? Or will they make my condition worse? Thank you so much for your answers. Lot's of gratitude and love towards you and your family.
 
Elizabeth: Hi Dr. Cabral! Thank you for all of your wonderful wisdom - I have been a faithful follower for many years. My daughter was diagnosed with a Chiari-1 malformation at age 2 (about 4 years ago) after a fall that required a CT scan due to persistent concussive symptoms. We had an MRI one year ago that showed interval development of a syrinx. Because of the higher probability that it may cause irreversible paresthesias and/or chronic pain, we decided to have decompression surgery in attempt to reduce the pressure in her spinal cord. She has had a follow-up MRI in the past 6 months which has not shown much improvement in the size of the syrinx. Wanting to avoid surgery again, I am curious as to whether you have any recommendations (not cures, diagnoses or treatments) to improve her symptoms. We are currently in PT due to her low muscle tone and poor coordination. I also give her a high quality multivitamin, Vitamin D3/K2, and omega daily. How would you treat this if it were your daughter? Thank you again! Elizabeth

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: 

Jovita: Hey Dr. Cabral, I would like to know if you can help me with my stomach problem. I get bloated a lot and burp 24/7 to a point where I can’t sleep at night. My doctor said I had a chronic constipation and bacteria in my gut and I also have heart burn. And I have been having this problem for 2 years and the medicine doesn’t help. Is there anything you have that I can buy to help ?

Jenna: Hey Dr. Cabral! I really appreciate this community you’ve built. It has helped me overcome health complications I didn’t think I’d ever heal and restored my faith in the power of my own body and mind. My question is a little different. I am thinking of going back to school to get my masters in psychology because I love the field, but don’t know what career I want to pursue with it. I was wondering if functional medicine companies like yours had a psychologist on staff working with the team and the clients. I would love to work with people who are determined to improve their health in all areas. I’ve thought maybe sports psychology would align the best with working on both the physical and mental aspects of health, but thought I’d ask if there are any opportunities for psychologists on functional medicine teams. Thanks for all your help!

Gillian: Hey there Dr. Cabral! I want to thank you first for sharing all your wisdom with all of us. You have an amazing heart for people and touch more people than you will ever know. My question is about breast implants. I got silicone implants 15 years ago and after reading and learning about natural and functional medicine, I think I may have made a big health mistake. While I love the way it makes me look and feel, I do not want to sacrifice my health. I’m in my late 30’s and healthy. Should I have them removed for health reasons and if so, are there any heathy alternatives? Thank you so very much!

Nancy: Hello Dr Cabral, I am a 57 yr old female with history of Hashimotos Thyroiditis, sleep apnea and I had a heart attack 5 yrs ago with one stent placed. I am on Pravastatin 20mg and zedia 20mg. I have recently gained about 30lbs over covid period due to lack of exercise. I am vegan and gluten free. My cholesterol has crept back up to 190 and my glucose is at pre-diabetic level (over one point) I have gained most of my weight in my middle region and my cortisol is also elevated. My oxidative stress and inflammation markers are low. I sleep well and I meditate and do breath practices. I can't tolerate stronger statins due to side effects. I know exercise will help and am getting back on the wagon. What else can I do to reverse all of this. Thank you.

Desire: Hi, is heavy metal intoxication related to Autism/ASD? Is there any treatment recommended if they are related to reducing the effects of heavy metals e.g diet, vitamin or natural therapies?

Audrey: Hi Dr. Cabral. I’ve been listening to to show for several years now and it has truly changed my life. Thank you. I’ve searched for this question but have not found it on the archives. Is broken 8-9 hrs of sleep still considered getting a full 8 hrs sleep? My 6 month old still wakes up once a night, so for instance I will get 6 hrs of straight sleep then another 2-3 hrs after I feed her and she goes back down

Lifting weight is NOT about building muscle…
 
Sure you can set a goal to build more muscle, but the benefits of training with resistance go well beyond how you could transform your physique…
 
Many of these benefits are internal and not able to be seen on the outside - However, they can be felt when things are working well.
 
So on today’s #CabralConcept 2246 I’d like to share with you 7 reasons to lift weights beyond muscle building - Enjoy the show and let me know if you can think of any others!

Contrary to popular conventional medicine belief you can overcome PCOS and you do not need pharmaceutical drugs in order to be able to achieve that…
 
And what infuriates the women we work with to an even greater degree is that they have never been told there are all-natural alternatives that have been proven to work far better than the drugs most MDs push on their patients…
 
So to clear up a lot of the confusion and actually provide a protocol to help rebalance the underlying root causes of PCOS I wanted to dedicate a whole show to this important topic that will affect 1 out of every 8-10 women…
 
Tune into today’s #CabralConcept 2245 to learn more about PCOS and what works best to overcome the root causes of this dis-ease - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

Sometimes it can seem confusing and unfair how certain people can send negativity and criticism your way without even knowing you…
 
It’s happened to all of us, but that doesn’t make it right - especially when it is unprovoked and uncalled for…
 
But nevertheless, it will happen again in the future - The good news is that once you understand the reasons behind it that have nothing to do with you per say you will let it roll off you much easier…
 
So on today’s #CabralConcept 2243 we’re going to go through why hurt people hurt people and how to appropriately respond - 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…

Hannah: I have a lot of confusion around protein consumption, especially when building muscle. Do you have a rule of thumb of how much protein is needed? When working with a nutritionist online, at one point she had me at 112 g, my body weight was around 140. This number was super hard to hit if I was not down in protein bars and shakes. Protein bars and protein shakes do not agree with my stomach at all. After finding you, I’m doing the detox and running some labs to work on my gut health. I would really like to get protein from natural sources. Can you help with how much protein do you think is needed?
 
Gary: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have severe gut issues and I am working with a functional Dr. We have determined I have leaky gut and bacterial imbalances in the gut. I also suffer from chronic constipation. We are trying to address these things currently. I also did a food sensitivity test for IGG and had very few problems there. However, I have massive bloating and cramping in the colon with EVERY meal no matter what food I eat. I tried the pulse test for IGE and found no increase in pulse, but I am getting horrible reactions every time I eat anything. Any advice? (I know stress is making things worse and I am very stressed currently, but this seems a bit extreme to be only stress) Thank you! Gary
 
Mallory: Hi Dr. Cabral! I am 27 years old & have been sick since I was a toddler. I had 4 sinus surgeries by the time I was 11 and was on an insane amount of medication & antibiotics as a child (so much so that it stained my adult teeth). Ever since I've had extreme gut issues, anxiety, & more recently I've developed POTS & other auto immune issues. A year ago I learned about candida, pathogens, parasites, mold, etc. I started on my own parasite cleanse which resulted in an instant crawling sensation all over my body. I had an intense herxheimer reaction & even tested positive for the flu. Since then, I have found a local functional doctor who has ran several functional tests & currently has me on a protocol similar to yours for my immune system and detox. He believes this is the root to the vast majority of my issues. The problem today is that it's been a year and I still see visible pathogens & film-like in every single one of my bowel movements. I still feel this crawling sensation, although not at all as intense as it was a year ago. My question is: is it possible that I can feel the pathogens moving as they are being pulled out of my body? Have you seen patients who took this long to detox? Any advice is much appreciated! It currently feels like I'm still so far from being well.
 
Zita: Hi, What about illnesses like eating compulsive disorders or Bulimia? Can they provoke adrenal insufficiency or hypothyroidism? Kind regards, Zita
 
Catherine: Hi Stephen. I’ve been lifting for 8 years. I was a swimmer growing up. In college I went from 140-105 lbs in three years by running and eating a paleo diet. I was about 6% body fat. I gained 20 lbs by eating 2700 of a paleo diet calories in 2017. I started intuitive eating. Mid 2020, I randomly started to gain weight. I tried cutting my calories and I started binge eating as a result. I gained 50# in 8 months. I was getting debilitating migraines with aura 2019-2020. I haven’t had a period since 2018. I started cutting with a coach in March of 2021. We reversed to 2300 calories and went down from there. I lost 12 lbs and plateaued in July. We tried going lower. I went down to 1200 calories (still paleo) and still did not lose weight. I believe my hormones are messed up and the binge eating is coming back. My digestion sucks and I have to take linzess. I don’t know what to do at this point. I am sitting at 5’5” 156-158 lbs, 25/26% body fat based on Dexa. I still have no period. My mood and my energy are all over the place. I take progesterone but it doesn’t do anything. Any tips on where to go from here? I want to get back to 140#.
 
Cassandra: Hi Dr. Cabral, Since probably November, I've started noticing tiny bumps on my eyelid. They have only appeared on the top lid of my right eye. It's not like a stye that I've seen people get on the main surface of the eyelid; they show up below the lash line, like where the two lids meet when you blink. They're the same color as the rest of my skin and can be scraped away with my fingernail. They don't hurt, but I'm just wondering what would cause this and if it's a sign of something I should be concerned about. 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: 

Christina: Hi Dr. Cabral. What do you think about eating for your blood type? I’ve been reading the book “Eat Right 4 Your Blood Type” and find it particularly interesting. Any comments or thoughts on this?
 
Ryan: Hello, I have been wondering if you know anything about the approximate ratio of black pepper to turmeric is needed to get the benefits of the bioperine? I don't want to get too much into the micro here but also would like to know practically if a tiny grind from the shaker is enough or if larger amounts are needed? Thanks in advance.
 
Cindy: Dr Cabral, I listened to Episode 760 on killing viruses. It talks about the need to ramp up your immune system, however, I have an autoimmune thyroid,(Hashimotos) and was told to avoid things that ramp up my immune system, because the immune system has already gone rogue, and it could cause the body to attack itself even more. For instance, I read to avoid echinacea and Holy Basil. Can you clear this up because I certainly would like to support immune system without causing issues with my autoimmunity. I listen all the time, so thanks for your help on this issue. Cindy
 
Liz: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you for putting so much time and effort into your podcasts; it’s clear that you have a drive and a need to help people help themselves! I’ve learned a lot over the past couple of years. My question is, what do you think of fucoxanthin supplements to aid in fat loss? I haven’t been able to find a lot of information on it, but what I have seen seems promising. It’s hard to find though, and I question the quality of the supplements I have been able to find. Is fucoxanthin legit? And if so how do I find a source I can trust? Thank you!
 
Bob: Hi Dr. Cabral. Love the podcast and your unbias approach to everything you cover. I know you have a lot of content on Intermittent Fasting so I apologize if my question has already been addressed, but I'm wondering what breaks a fast when doing Intermittent Fasting? I'll start my morning w/ some organic non-caffeinated herbal tea (typically some Roasted Dandelion Root or Rose Hips & Hibiscus by Traditional Medicinals, or Lemon Ginger plus Probiotics by Bigelow). Would that break my fast? Also curious about supplements. Would taking a supplement pill first thing in the morning or right before bed break a fast?
 
Crystal: Hi Dr. Cabral! I am 25 and have struggled with my weight my entire life. When I was in high school, I got very slim but then gained over 100 pounds between ages 19-20. I was then diagnosed at 20 with PCOS which has resulted in chronic dry eye syndrome and hypothyroidism. I went vegan shortly after I was diagnosed for ethical and health reasons. I was able to lose the majority of the weight, but in the past year have put a lot back on. Even with listening to your previous podcasts on PCOS, doing slow weighted workouts and steady cardio with balanced, high-protein meals, the weight does not want to shed. I'm at a loss for what to do and was wondering if you could recommend a certain diet/protocol? I want to mention that because I'm vegan and aiming to eat higher protein meals, I often use faux meats to meet my macro goals. I sway towards cleaner products, but many have PUFAs, which I know you say causes inflammation. Could this be a reason I'm not losing weight? Do I have to give these up to reach my goals? What are some better protein sources for vegans besides beans, tofu, and tempeh? Thank you so much! I so value your work and expertise, and am so grateful for your podcast and deep care for peoples' health!

One of the biggest factors people cite of why they don’t exercise is “lack of time.”
 
I think this is a fair statement when you take into account being at work 10 hours a day (including travel time, getting your kids ready for school, making dinner, and then having a little downtime…
 
The problem is even if the statement is true, you still miss out on all the wellness, weight, and longevity benefits of exercising…
 
So one interesting workout program that is popping up is taking away the excuse of not having the time to workout…
 
That’s why on today’s #CabralConcept 2239 we’ll review if 5-minute “mini-workouts” are the future of exercise - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

“If it fits your macros” (IIFYM) has become a simplified way of manipulating your weight, but is it healthy? 
 
To be honest, not everyone cares about the answer to that question if it helps them attain their weight loss/gain goal, but what I’ve seen in my experience is that most people will care about the long-term consequences when it becomes too late…
 
So in order to help you achieve the goal you are looking to hit while at the same time getting healthy I’d like to share with you how to move beyond macros for better health - Enjoy #CabralConcept 2237 and let me know what you thought!

I know we talk mainly about healing the physical body, but often what is needed is a rewiring of our mind…
 
Believe it or not, we can actually begin to control the way we think, the thoughts we think (to a large degree), and the feelings we feel…
 
And once we begin to do this we can then take more appropriate actions, which will inevitably lead us on a different course in life to better ourselves for ourselves, our family, and our community…
 
That’s why on today’s #CabralConcept 2236 I’d like to share with you the best ways to detox the mind and improve overall happiness in daily life - 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…

Tina: Hi it’s me again! LOL. My husband is 48 years old and was born with congenital heart disease. 12 years ago he had a heart transplant. For the most part he is very very healthy from what his transplant team tells him. He recently also did the big five, we are waiting for the results to get back, but my question is because he is taking so many drugs, especially his immunosuppressants, heart rejection medicine, is he still able to take all of the supplements his IHP level two practitioner will recommend? I’m wondering what your thoughts are on someone like him. Can he reverse everything just like someone who has not had a heart transplant? Should he consult his transplant team before taking anything? Just curious what your thoughts are on someone like him Who is anatomy is not the norm. Thank you so so much for all you do!
 
Kelly: Do you have expertise in working with epilepsy? My teenage son starting having seizures at 16-he is stable on medication- he is 19 I want to get him off meds and find root cause -if you can help - i will fill out paperwork for a wellness appointment kindly kelly 
 
Anonymous: A part from the usual low thyroid symptoms, is there any link between candida and high TSH? And if so, why would that be? A part from the potential malabsorption of iodine and selenium of course.
 
Angie: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you for your guidance through my families healing journey. I have a question regarding my 11 year old daughter. She has an enlarged tonsil on the left side of her throat (my left when I look in her throat). Our general practitioner doctor noticed it after a bout of antibiotics due to strep when she was a kindergartner, so we went to see a specialist and he said to just “watch it.” She now sees a naturopathic doctor and tested positive for HPylori and SIBO, which she has done treatment for and eradicated. She currently takes your DNS, DFVB, Vitamin D and Omega 3. Her tonsil is still the same size it was when she was 5 and nothing seems to get it to settle down. Do you have any suggestions?
 
Soussi: Thks a lot i got ur page from a friend of mine .i get hemophilia A One year now.i m 46 years old and this hemophilia not heriditaire i get some scanners but no reasons .i take no médecine now i have only médecine in case of hémorragy.the facteur 8 Is on déficit it was 0 the first tme but now 5. Percent. Is there any aliments i have to avoid to boost my imunity.and help this facteur 8 to rework again thks a lot

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: Hello! You are truly incredible, I love your work. My question is regarding the adrenals. I am a 25 Vata and currently on stage 5 of adrenal fatigue (ongoing resistance). My tsh is functionally low and so are all my sex hormones (including estrogen). I'm working my way the destress protocol but I just get confused whenever I hear you say "the body is under stress and so it will produce more cortisol". Looking at thyroid for example, I know thyroid is reduced in higher levels of cortisol but in someone that is not producing enough cortisol because the adrenals are exhausted, this doesn't apply right? I guess my question is "can someone be on the fight or flight, if they are on the later stages of adrenal fatigue?". I would assume that since little cortisol is being produced, the body is not stressed and therefore not in the fight or flight?
 
Stefanie: Hi, before my question I wanted to thank you for and your team for all that do everyday. Now to my question, I am 34 yrs old and had my gallbladder removed a few years ago and from time to time I feel similar pain but to a lower level on my right side right under my ribcage. I was told that sometimes I can have stone residue on that duct between my liver and my now removed gallbladder. I have gotten sonogram, mri and nothing comes up. My cbc showed for sometime to have high cholesterol but I managed to bring that down. Currently I do macros with 50 g of fat a day and definitely seen a change in my overall health but I still have this pain. I do strength training 4 times a week and cardio twice a week, 8k steps a day. I also drink a gallon of water a day. I take omega 3, vitamin d, zinc, magnesium, and a multivitamin. How much fat should be consuming and what kind of fats ? I normally eat organic chicken breast, organic ground turkey breast, top round beef (which has lower fat), almonds, evoo cold pressed, avocado, oats, powder peanut butter, cage free eggs, some coffee cream and that's mainly what my fat sources are overall. I rarely eat processed foods, thank you.
 
Yasmin: Would you do a podcast on psoriasis please. How can we cure it? Without having to omit absolutely everything from our diet (which is what I see people do). Is it curable? Have you treated patients with skin problems like this.
 
Anonymous: Hi dr Cabral! I am a wine sales rep and so I have to drink for my job. I love wine but I get hungover off of one glass. Are there ways to support the body during drinking? I only drink a few glasses a week max but I want to make sure I’m staying healthy. Also any tips for preventing the hangover? Thanks!
 
Alison: RE: Hypothryroidism and Hashimotos Is it possible to reverse these two? I see a Dr. at Vanderbilt Univ. Medical Ctr. and he tells me it is not even a possibility.
 
Tina: Thank you for everything you do. I recently did the big five and I am working with a level two practitioner and I am so excited about my journey to wellness. I have a reverse osmosis under the sink water system. I read somewhere that the holding tank under my sink can cause the water to get moldy. So I went ahead and purchased a test kit that I took at home and sent off to the lab and the results came back telling me the below …. I’m not quite sure what to make of this. Is this water harmful to drink? From what I understand all water, from an RO system and even a Berkey will have some type of bacteria in it. The only pure water is distilled. Thank you!!! Total HPC Bacteria 580000 CFU/100ml SLR. Health Effects: Heterotrophic (carbon-consuming) bacteria include a wide range of relatively harmless microorganisms that are commonly present in natural water sources. While HPC is indeed an indicator of overall bacterial presence in your water, it is not a good indicator of health risk since many of these bacteria are not pathogenic, or likely to affect your health. On the other hand, coliform and e.coli bacteria, are well known indicators of pathogenic health risk. Common Sources: Heterotrophs are microorganisms that require organic carbon to grow and reproduce.

Typically when you go on a calorie-cutting diet to lose weight your metabolism inevitably begins to slow down after 6-12 weeks of consistent dieting…
 
This has been shown to occur over and over in the research, yet it is still the most common way people approach the topic (even the “experts”)…
 
The problem is once you’ve slowed your metabolism you need to cut even more calories in order to continue losing weight - eventually you have to eat so little that it’s nearly impossible for anyone to maintain these types of diets…
 
This is also why the failure rate is near 100% on traditional weight-loss diets…
 
The good news is there is an alternative and it works so well it’s actually been shown to improve your metabolism…
 
But don’t take my word for it, on today’s #CabralConcept 2232 I will present the research and simple plan you can follow to still boost your metabolism while losing weight - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!
