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!   

Maria: Forever grateful for your knowledge ! I recently heard that baking potato (starchy foods) causes the formation of a harmful substance‘ acrylamide’, which can be carcinogenic. Apparently it is from the chemical reaction of certain sugars and the amino acid asparagine from high temp cooking. Furthermore, if you eat Baked potato it is recommended to not eat the skin, or just better to steam or boil. I’ve never heard of this before so was wondering of if you have ! Thank you

Simon: Hi Dr Cabral! You've mentioned many times that fruit does not digest well with other food groups; but that it can be the best way to get carbs after a workout. Is it ok to combine whole fruit (I don't have the opportunity to blend) with my post workout shake (plain WPI, BCAAs and 14oz water)? I assume as the shake is dissolved the typical food combining rules don't apply? I also wonder if it is ok to consume fruit with that much water? As an asside, would you recommend any particular common fruit over others post workout if my goals are muscle gain and recovery? Thanks so much!

Meredith: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you so much for all your help and support! I listen to your podcast religiously. I need help with the quarantine 10. I gained this weight last year during the stress of the pandemic. I cannot get it off no matter what I try- I have done two of your detox's, the CBO protocol, a mold protocol, the finisher, and intestinal cleanse. I have tried exercise and eating habits that always worked for me in the past, and nothing works. I even have worked with a hormone doctor who has me on natural thyroid, progesterone, and testosterone. I may have slight insulin resistance as well. Any advice on where to go next is greatly appreciated, thank you so much!

Ally: Hi Dr. Cabral- absolutely love the podcast and I've learned so much from you already. I'm writing in about my mom (63 years old) - starting about 3 years ago, she started slurring her words and it's gotten increasingly worse ever since. She takes medication for her thyroid (hypo) and blood pressure and also has type 2 diabetes. We're unable to trace it to anything specific and her doctor doesn't seem to care or ask questions. Is it possible that it's a side effect of the medication or could it be something more serious (stroke?). I tried researching on my own since I'm not able to go to doctors appointments with her and I wasn't able to find anything helpful. Looking for advice on what sort of underlying root cause imbalance would lead to consistent slurred speech. Thank you!

Simon: Hi again Dr Cabral, I have a very different question this time. Our healthy six month old has been suffering recently with very bad eczema. I have struggled to isolate a cause given he is 100% breastfed, natural water birth and no antibiotics, occasional natural soap in bath. I did have some eczema though when I was young. We have been using mineral oil (which I understand isn’t great) for fear that natural food oils may cause future allergies in a baby, and last time he got so bad we used steroid cream. I feel stuck as most natural treatments seem either inappropriate for a baby (with ingredients I worry may be too harsh for his skin); and the ways of isolating the cause (food, gut permeability, stress) don’t seem applicable to a breastfed baby. Can you please provide any thoughts on how we can address the underlying cause of this issue and treat the next flare up if we need to? Would probiotics be advisable in a 6 month old? Thank you so much!

Pia: Dear Dr. Cabral, thank you so much for everything you are doing for the health and wellness of the world. I just did a detox, I am on my first month of the CBO protocol and will do an intestinal cleanse as well as the heavy metal detox and the CBO finisher. A big thanks to your team as well for getting me on the right path after breastfeeding for 20 months and being depleted. First question: my partner and I would like to start trying for a second baby as quickly as possible - is this already possible during the CBO finisher? Second question: before falling pregnant again I would like to get some dental work done, which is not necessary from a medicine standpoint but from a visual standpoint and it's very important to me. It would include pulling 4 healthy teeth (to create more space in my mouth) and therefore undergoing surgery. Is there an ideal timeframe during all my protocols to undergo this procedere? And how can I support my teeth and bones to heal and restore after the surgery? All the best from Germany! By the way: yesterday I finally started my IHP certification and cannot wait to change the view of health care together with you and all other IHPs. Pia

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: 

Hunter: Hi Doc l!! I've been following you for over two years now (starting with the Cabral detox) and I'm grateful for the knowledge and products you and your team provides. My question: I was diagnosed with vasodilation or vasomotor in 2017. I'm 42 male year old but it really started about 2005. I used to drink a considerable amount of alcohol then, but I've made a huge lifestyle since. Blood pressure is always good, I eat 80% healthy and alcohol is close to none now. My ears are always red and sometimes out of nowhere one ear in one spot will get red and hot and then it spreads to the rest of the ear. If I rub them that could also trigger it. A decade ago is when the redness showed up more on my face, especially if I have a little anxiety. Face and ears are flushed, blood feels like it's boiling, hands, arms and upper body also. I'm always warm. If I work out in the morning I'll get flushed but my ears won't stay hot after, just red and then they cool down, but in the evening when I workout that's when they stay red. In the summer I have to have the air on in my car because the heat is ten times worse for me. My chiropractor says it could be hormonal, or is it in the gut, or nervous system? I trust your knowledge, any help with this is appreciated. Keep up the fantastic work.

Analise: Hi Dr. Cabral! I know you’ve spoken numerous times in regards to hormonal acne, but I wanted to write in for help with possibly identifying my underlying cause, or at least pointing me in the right direction. I have suffered from hormonal cystic acne since the age of 12, I only break out on my cheeks, but primarily on MY left cheek. I currently am on spironolactone 100mg and birth control to help control it but still have breakthrough acne. A couple of years ago I got off my medications and started breaking out severely underneath my jawline and then on my cheeks. I waited for a year to see if it would clear up and it didn’t. I plan to get off my medications again at the end of this year and would like to help treat the underlying cause now. Some other symptoms I have that could be related is constant bloating from the time I wake up, I also have a layer of white on my tongue that I have to continuously scrape off and am unsure what that is all about. I do have a gluten, egg, dairy, and almond sensitivity. Otherwise, my labs are all within range with the exception of my T3 uptake being 21.00 (below low normal). My skin was best when I was vegan, but felt I was nutrient deficient and living with brain fog. How can I treat the underlying cause of my acne? Thank you for all you do!

Ryan: Hi Dr. Cabral! This may be out of your scope of practice but I was wondering if you have any advice for Bicuspid Aortic Valve. I am 30 and had my heart checked out due to anxiety and they found that two of the valves of my aorta are fused together from birth. This is causing leakage because the valve can’t close all the way as well as stress to my aorta. I’m so grateful I got checked out because I guess only 1% of the population has this and it isn’t something you feel unless it gets really bad. Any advice on how to keep the leakage to a minimum and limit the aorta from getting any larger? Any supplements or foods that would be great or even things to avoid? Thank you for your time!

Fred: Hello Dr. Cabral! I just listened to your Friday review about wireless headphones, which scared me because I have a wireless hearing device in both my ears all day. My audiologist says that the technology of wireless hearing devices is the "new trend" and that all hearing aids are now being made this way, so I'm having a hard time finding ones that are not wireless. But I've been worried about the exact thing you talked about - could my wireless hearing device be harmful to my brain? It's frustrating that so many doctors don't care or know the science of EMFs and it's even more scary that this huge industry is subjecting people to something which may take decades before they see the link to diseases. I don't want my hearing aid to be the next cigarette smoking health risk! I'd love to know your suggestion on what I should do regarding hearing devices. Thank you!

Kristen: Hello Dr. Cabral. Thank you for all of your knowledge. I am 28yo and have been dealing with gnawing and dull epigastric pain that causes nausea for a few years. This occurs at night, especially after a drink or two of alcohol or carbonated beverages. I used to take ibuprofen quite often for 4 years due to tension headaches but haven't taken it in 5 years. I drink 2-3 cups of coffee daily. I felt like I had every symptom of H pylori but I did your stool test and it was negative, it just showed low bacteria counts. I have been taking a probiotic daily with no help. What do you recommend I do to ease this gnawing feeling?

Lew: The results of the hair lab test I took through Equilibrium and ARL showed a high level of mercury- .324. Is that a worrisome level and if so what would you suggest I do about it? I do have numerous metal fillings that contain Mercury but would prefer a more conservative approach than removal of all tooth fillings. Thank you.

The thing about science is that you have to read all of it…
 
This includes the parts that don’t necessarily fit your dogma or companies “marketing plan…”
 
I believe as health practitioners we have an oath to uphold that we should truly do no harm and do our best to present both sides of diet, exercise, biohacking, supplements, teas, recovery, etc.
 
That’s why on today’s #CabralConcept 1993 I’d like to present you more research on how high-fat diets and late-night eating may cause irreversible weight gain (and I share both sides to be fair) - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

So often conventional medicine compartmentalizes our imbalances and can’t see the whole picture-
 
For instance, when we are feeling chronically anxious, sad, lower mood, depressed, or any number of other feelings, doctors mainly look to pharmaceutical drugs to “add more” to your body/brain…
 
The problem is that a number of imbalances including stress, gut dysbiosis, and nutrient deficiencies can easily lead to a lack of feel-good neurotransmitters… 
 
That’s why on today’s #CabralConcept 1992 I’d like to share with you how natural remedies like intermittent fasting can improve your mood neurotransmitters and get you feeling better in a healthier way - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments below!

Each one of us has the ability to summon a part of our mind that would enable us to overcome any obstacle that stands in our way…
 
The problem is that we’ve been conditioned since childhood to believe that we have limits on our talents, genetics, smarts, charisma, energy, or hundreds of other factors that make up who we are…
 
That’s why on today’s #CabralConcept I’d like to introduce you to the concept of overcoming your inner Frankenstein while awakening your innate Einstein (John Assaraf Reference) - 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!   

Michael: If someone has mold toxicity (Chaetomium) do they need to use anti fungal herbs or antimicrobial herbs? My exposure was in 2017. I get confused some people say yes and some people say no.

Joanna: Hi Dr Cabral I have a question regarding children's formula.  What are your thoughts and recommendations for baby formula if unable to breast feed. What formula do you recommend? I don't consume dairy myself but I don't want to deprive my baby when the time comes, as I know they need calcium? How can they best get calcium through diet also?  Also during pregnancy, if mum doesn't consume diary, what are your suggestions for calcium consumption for mum during pregnancy? Many thanks and appreciate your help as always Joanna

Joanna: Hi Dr Cabral What are your thoughts on the GAPS diet. This is not for myself however would love to hear your idea on the topic while also educating myself? Many thanks Joanna

Carl: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have had gut related issues for some time... Candida overgrowth etc. My morning Cortisol is on the low end, which leaves me feeling shaky upon waking. It feels as though blood sugar is low, but is fine. When I get up from sitting, I feel almost an adrenaline rush where my muscles feel weak and shaky. My blood pressures rises to the 160/115 range. When I sit back down, the BP eventually goes to the 140/85 range.

Irene: How do you know what supplements to keep taking forever or what ones to take for a period and then stop? How long should you take these? I take a bunch of supplements and sometimes feel like I can't keep up with the cost of taking them all forever. For reference I take a b-complex, turmeric w/ peprin (depression/migraine), NAC (for skin OCD picking habit), fish oil (depression), Gaia Adrenal Support (stress/depression), Magnesium glycinate (migraine), CoQ10 (migraine), Quercetin (trying just one bottle for allergy season)…

Lorena: Hi Doc! Thank you so much for taking the time to answering our questions :) I have two questions: 1. Any advise for greasy hair? I've tried doing everything. Several 21 day detoxes, CBO protocol, changing shower filter, shampoos, all natural remedies. Everything. Not sure what to do at this point. 2. I found an omega-3 supplement that looks really good quality. It has been tested for heavy metals and purity and it says that it has 600mg DHA and 300 EPA. Why would you still stay that the fish oil you sell is better? If it is because it's higher in EPA and if so, why should we prefer those higher in EPA than DHA?

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: 

Julie: Hi Dr Cabral, my daughter (18) was diagnosed with Mono just before basketball playoffs in 2020. To help her with her energy levels during that time she was given a b12 injection before each game. Within a month or so she developed severe acne after never having skin issues of any kind so we feel certain it is injection related. Do you have any suggestions for clearing this type of acne. It is severe and beginning to scar her face. Thank you for your help! Julie

Thomas: Hi Dr. Cabral, I recently completed the 21 day detox, and I am also in the process of achieving level one and level two IHP certification. I truly enjoy your passion and ability to teach all the material in an effective, engaging, and enjoyable way!  I wear an Oura ring to track sleep and other variables such as HRV. On day two of the 21 day detox, I noticed an obvious and significant increase in my HRV that lasted for the entirety of the 21 day period. Following the completion of the detox, I noticed my HRV settled back into my normal/pre-detox levels. The magnitude of the HRV change was roughly 20ms. My question is - To which component of the detox would you attribute the favorable increase in heart rate variability? I assume it’s one or more of the ingredients in either the FM or AYU detox, but I would really appreciate any insight you can offer. Would it be recommended to use a supplement to increase HRV on a regular basis, or is it just better to focus on a holistic approach to maximize PNS activation? Thank you! Tom

Savita: Hi Dr. Cabral, I'm very grateful for you and your podcast! I was wondering, what are your thoughts on the COVID-19 Vaccine. Thank you. Savita

Victoria: Hi Cabral! I just learned that my 5 year old niece has a heart murmur. Do you have any recommendations she should follow for this? Currently and also growing up in effort to eventually grow out of it ? Thank you!

Bethany: Hi Dr. Cabral - love your podcast and appreciate what you do for all of us. I have a question regarding my 17 year old daughter. She has recently been diagnosed with Aortic Ventricular Tachycardia and arrhythmia. My question is... can this be caused by Hashimoto's, which she has also recently been diagnosed with - her thyroid antibodies are off the chart. Additionally, any words or advice you can give regarding treatment for this to help ease our anxiety would be appreciated. It's obviously scary for us parents when anything health related is happening with our children. Thank you!

Aaron: Hi Dr. Cabral! Thanks for sharing your knowledge with these podcasts. Would you discuss the difference between Vitamin D3 absorption and utilization? I have listened to a TON of your podcasts, and relistened to all the Vit D topics. You mention needing cofactors like Vit K, Mg, etc. I use 2 scoops of DNS in almond milk each morning with my 6 drops Vit D3, take Histpro, B-complex, and 1Mg at lunch, and balanced zinc with Mg at dinner. My Vit D levels with PCP won't go much above 33. (I had gone from 5 drops to 7 with no change, so settled in on roughly 35units/lbs.) I have heard others say oil based capsules are better than drops for accurate dosing. Do you recommend drops because there is some level of sublingual capillary absorption? If so, do I need to take the DNS a couple hours before Vit D so the cofactors are already in my system, ready to work? Are the cofactors primarily for absorption of Vit D into the body, or primarily for conversion of Vit D for use in the body? This question is getting long, and I hope you understand what I'm asking. Thanks again for getting deep on bio-regulatory medicine!

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!

To say I love health & fitness tech or “biohacking” would be an understatement ; )
 
But, in reality, there are only so many devices, gadgets, and wearables you can use and track at any one time…
 
So when I was trying to decide between the very best wearable in the industry (right now) I narrowed it down to the Apple Watch vs. the Oura Ring…
 
And on today’s #CabralConcept 1987 I break down in a head-to-head battle the Apple watch vs. the Oura Ring to see which one is the winner for biohacking your health - Enjoy the show and let me know what your favorite wearable tech is in the comments!

There has been a lot of debate on this topic over the past few thousand years, but I believe we do have a definitive answer…
 
That answer actually lies in how our nervous system has been genetically hard-coded to be naturally ready to take in larger amounts of food during a specific time frame during the day…
 
On today’s #CabralConcept 1985 we will explore all 3 main meals, as well as how intermittent fasting plays a role in what should be the biggest meal of the day - Enjoy the show and let me know your thoughts in the comments!

I understand not everyone has this problem, but…
 
Many people suffer from opposite pulls from their love for their passions, work, career, or education versus relationships and family time…
 
I’ve spoken about my tug-of-war battles before, but I’ve been using 5 questions at the end of each week that help keep me balanced (I think they’ll be useful for you as well)…
 
On today’s #CabralConcept 1984 I’d like to share with you how to keep the main thing the main thing - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought 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!   

Melanie: First of all, thank you so much for taking the time to answer our questions. I’ve been doing seed cycling for a while now, so I do the pumpkin and flax seed in the follicular phase and then the sunflower & sesame in the luteal. Does that mean I can’t eat those seeds at other times? I love pumpkin and sesame and I would love to have them more often. Could I for example have pumpkin seeds in the luteal phase? I hope my question makes sense!

Bettina: Dear Dr. Cabral Thank you for sharing your knowledge I really appreciate listening to your podcasts and getting more knowledge every day. I've come across this product called OMEGA 3 from Nordfolk and I would love to know your thoughts. The oil is made of the zooplankton Calanus finmarchicus. The is EPA / DHA / SDA is bound in wax esters. When taking two capsuls a person gets: SDA 79mg, EPA 68mg, DHA 58mg, Total OMEGA 3 221 mg, ketolic acid 30 mg, Sterol (Brassicasterol etc.) 11 mg, Astaxanthin 1000 μg and D3 5 μg. What are your thoughts and could I take these instead of Nordic Naturals cod liver oil? I would love to use only your products but not livng in the US unfortunately my country puts huge taxes, I know this is out of your hands just mentioning it to say why I ask for alternatives :-) Thank you for your time. Best regards, Bettina

Lyndsey: Hi Dr Cabral I’m wondering if you can answer this question. Both my husband and I have apple watches and wear them to bed and get our sleep data from this. My resting heart rate goes down to 58-63 but my husbands resting heart rate is from 38-57. He often gets notifications in the morning that his heart rate went under 40. Is this ok?? I’m quite worried about it. Even during the middle of the day his resting heart rate during the day gets down to 47. I’m 36 and he is 34. He is a teacher and is quite a I’ve all day. Thanks for your help.

Jenna: Can you please talk about autoimmune hepatitis in the liver? What are the root causes of this and also what are the solutions you can think of? Prescribing immunosuppressants is what the doctors want to do for this, but I know there has to be another way. Thank you!

Lara: Hi, dr. Cabral :) I like putting all things I can into my smoothie, so I blend berries with different types of lettuce and herbs, add some seeds like chia and sunflower or pumpkin & linseed (depending on seed cycling), sometimes walnuts, hemp protein, etc.. I like using a lot of cinnamon, turmeric powder (with a bit of black pepper), ginger root in it as well, but I was wondering, how much of each is too much? Because I put A LOT! And too much of a good thing isn’t necessarily better, right? Lara

Shelly: Hi Dr. Cabral! I listen to your podcast every morning & you are like part of our family now. I am wondering about water consumption. I drink half my body weight in ounces per day but was wondering if water combined with other ingredients counts. I make a daily smoothie with almond milk, powders, fruits & veggies. Usually I need to add water because of the thickness. Does that water count & how much water is too much water for a 44-year-old, 5’5”, 130-pound woman? Thank you so much for your ongoing support.

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: 

Anon: For how long should we be taking foundational supplements like omegas after the initial 4 months time frame? What about b vitamins and adrenal soothe or Daily Fruit 7 Vegetable Blend as well.

Anon: Is the FM Detox on SSRI’s not recommended? If not, what can we do moving forward?

Anon: CBO protocol and a fecal transplant? Any benefit doing both?

Anon: What would be the consequences of lack of bile production?

Lauren: Hi Dr. Cabral, I'm writing in with 2 questions: 1. I received my Food Sensitivity test and was surprised to see that green tea, mushrooms, and a few other foods I have been incorporating more recently showed up. I had taken the test a few years back, and none of these foods showed up for me. My coach did mention that some foods eaten frequently may show up, and I'm wondering the science behind this - is this a truly inflammatory response to these foods? I did find some research dispelling IgG testing (e.g. AAAAI) noting the presence of IgG is likely a normal response of the immune system to exposure to food. Wondering your perspective on this. 2. I also recently completed the Big 5 and have completed a 14-Day Detox, Parasite Protocol, and on to the Heavy Metal Detox amongst other supplements recommended to balance out my hormones, thyroid, and gut dysbiosis. Though there were no parasites detected, I have had an anal itch for the past 8 months, and have had very low libido along with recurring UTI and yeast infection-like symptoms. Have tested negative for 2 parasite tests, UTI tests, and STI tests as well. Wondering if you have any guidance on what this might be. Thank you!

Paula: Hi doc! Hope you and your family are great! What are your thoughts on incenses? I love using them especially when I meditate but not sure if they’re toxic…

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!

General protein intake requirements will always be different than those for active exercisers…
 
The reason for this has to do with both metabolic needs, as well as muscle tissue recovery from the workouts themselves...

Maybe life isn’t going so well right now, or you may just feel like you have more potential than you’ve achieved so far…

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!   

Lyndsey: Hi there, my background is I’m 36 yr old female, have history of long term antibiotic use mainly for UTI’s. I also have coeliac disease and was diagnosed at age 19. I’m on the path to getting well and am working with an IHP here is Australia. I have done the starter lab tests, am just waiting for the results of these. I’ve started the CBO protocol and will have been doing it for 1 week tomorrow. My question is that for as long as I can remember if I let myself get really hungry I get nasty bloating and wind pain which then gets worse when I eat something. Why is this? It doesn’t seem to happen if I do t let myself get really hungry. My 14 year old daughter gets the exact same thing. I’d love to know what causes this. Thanks so much

Uchi: At 45, I’ve had all of these conditions : PCOS, Hashimoto’s, High Blood Pressure, Colon Cancer, insomnia, skin allergies, constant diarrhea, leaky gut syndrome and anxiety. Have gone to hundreds of doctors, including 2 fx med but my symptoms continue. I want to advocate for my own health and take it into my own hands. Feeling overwhelmed: I don’t know where to start... address what issue first: Autoinmunity? Gut health? Inflammation? Would love to get some light on where to start and focus first.

Sarah: Good day Dr. Cabral. Is Aphantasia something that can be cured or is it something you have to live with? For listeners, it's basically not being able to picture something in one's mind or visualise mental pictures. When told to visualise (like in your motivation and mindset Mondays or during meditation) I always assumed they meant figuratively or something. I did not know people actually see clear pictures in their mind or imagine clearly like they do in TV or film. Just wanna know if there's a root cause or it's normal some people are just unable to do so. Thank you. Have a great day

Sarren: Me again. I've noticed some pushback in health spheres from some doctors that smoothies are overrated. I enjoy them but they're saying blended fruit and vegetables aren't nutritionally equivalent to the same fruit or veggie left whole even though some properties remain present, blending breaks down insoluble fiber. There's also talk of natural sugars are released from within the cell walls of the fruit and become “free sugars”. Is there any truth to what they're saying or are they just bumping their gums? Keep up great work

Rhonda: Hi doctor Cabral,  I just started listening to your podcast and just can’t get enough of the amazing health information you have made available. Thank you so much!  I have a question I’m hoping you can answer: I’ve been reading a lot about menopause and am a bit spooked about what happens to your body when you lose estrogen. Therefore, I was wondering if there’s anything we can do to delay menopause as far as the lifestyle is concerned?  Also, one of my friends is in early menopause (she’s only 44). Is there anything she could do to reverse it?  Thanks again for everything you do!  Rhonda

Mandy: Hi Dr Cabral, I have a question about my daughter. She is 5 and multiple times each week she is waking up in the night crying with painful legs and feet. Can you offer any advice? Thanks, Mand

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: 

Sheila: I have elevated levels of Cobalt (0.068) past the blue range on the Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis. Can you please explain what could cause this (I don't eat a lot of meat), I do take the EquiLife B Complex once a day. Any other causes for elevation? Is there a concern with this level and if so what can I do to bring it down?

John: Hi Dr. Cabral - I’m having an issue with fatigue and lightheadedness following lunch. I do 2 shakes and 2 meals each day. I don’t have an issue with breakfast which is essentially an oatmeal shake. There’s no protein powder in the shake. I get fatigued following my first whole food meal which is lunch. The next meal at supper causes no issues even if it’s the exact same meal that I had at lunch. I don’t believe the time of day makes a difference because if I go the entire day without eating and only have supper, I get the issue at supper. The common pattern appears to be the first whole food meal of the day. Do you have thoughts on why this could be happening and possible solutions? Some additional information on me: I believe I have mild POTS based on my symptoms of lightheadedness when I get up, etc. I took an Organic Acids test which showed unbalanced gut flora and yeast overgrowth. I am on day 14 of the CBO protocol, but this issue started long before that. I’ve tried Ginger tea which upsets my stomach. I’ve also tried HCL which causes severe burning in my digestive system the next morning. Do I perhaps need to add more food or protein to my first shake to “fire up” my digestion for the day? Thank you for your time.

Suzy: Are you familiar with Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome? This is what I believe I have. I experience a burning sensation in my butt, outer hip and down my IT band. Sometimes it's more of a dull ache. It's especially painful when I lay down and put pressure on those areas. I go to physical therapy but it only helps temporarily and really would like to solve the issue long term. Do you have any insight?

Lara: Hi, dr. Cabral :) I like putting all things I can into my smoothie, so I blend berries with different types of lettuce and herbs, add some seeds like chia and sunflower or pumpkin & linseed (depending on seed cycling), sometimes walnuts, hemp protein, etc.. I like using a lot of cinnamon, turmeric powder (with a bit of black pepper), ginger root in it as well, but I was wondering, how much of each is too much? Because I put A LOT! And too much of a good thing isn’t necessarily better, right? The second part of my question is about the seed cycling.. can I still use other seeds like chia no matter on the time of the month? And how much of the seeds for seed cycling can we use daily? Because I use a lot of sesame (I live in a country where we use Tahini with or in EVERYTHING, lol) Thank you for everything you do, listening to this podcast is a part of my morning routine every day and on days I cannot listen to it, I have withdrawal syndrome.. a little joke there to brighten up your already amazing day (although not far from the truth).. please keep it up, you’re helping so many people.. keep being this amazing! Lots of love for you and your family and everyone listening, Happy healing, Lara

Brynn: Hi Dr. Cabral! Thank you for everything you do! I love your podcast and have learned so much from you! I wanted to write in and ask you what your thoughts are on some of the health issues I am having and have been trying to figure out for the past few years. At the beginning of the day, I am not swollen or inflamed at all. However, throughout the day, my legs (especially ankles and calves) will get swollen and tight. They don’t get as swollen if I’m able to elevate them throughout the day but I have a desk job so it’s hard to elevate them. I workout 5-6 times a week. I’m 25, 134 lbs and 5’8”. It also seems like I have bad circulation since my fingers/feet will stay cold or hot, lips will turn purple when I’m cold, etc. I’m not sure if my circulation is correlated with my swelling or if it’s not related? I also have bad scoliosis - could this play a factor into my circulation and swelling? Sorry this is long, but I would really appreciate any help! I’m doing your parasite cleanse right now and will be doing the mold and heavy metal one after to see if those help. I also had a call with one of your health coaches and they suggested I do the food sensitivity test and the candida metabolic and vitamins test. Thank you so much I’m advance!
