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!   

Alex: Dr. Cabral, thank you so much for your work. The info and protocols you share have literally given me my life back. I listened to your podcast on lectins and need some clarity. The Organic Acids test confirmed some yeast and bacteria overgrowth, and I am currently on month two of the CBO protocol. I did not have any parasites, hpylori or clostridia. I do not want to eat poultry/meat for welfare standard issues, and seafood is not very appetizing to eat (except wild salmon). Thankfully I am not allergic to eggs, so this has been my main source of protein. I noticed the vegan proteins on the sensitive gut guide are mainly legumes. Hemp hearts are great but leave me very hungry in between meals. I have been trying lentils and chickpeas, but still have painful and explosive gas which goes away when I eliminate legumes. I did not have any IGG sensitivities to legumes, but have avoided them for years due to symptoms. Should I rerun the food sensitivity and eat legumes the day before the test? Also, once I complete the CBO protocol would it be possible to digest these vegan legumes? I heard from another source that it's because there is not the bacteria present to breakdown the legumes, but adding certain strains of bacteria can help with digestion. I am wondering if the CBO probiotics will repopulate the gut with these bacteria. Should I try again, is there anything I can do to add these vegan proteins back into my diet or am I just to avoid them for life and occasionally eat poultry/meat to keep protein intake at a decent level? Thanks again

Chanel: Dear Dr. Cabral, I am a new listener and have loved every minute. I appreciate your analytical, but practical and caring approach. I also appreciate how you put yourself in the listener’s shoes. Every day, I try to learn more about the microbiome and natural health by reading, listening to podcasts, docuseries, etc. I am writing in to obtain your perspective and guidance. My family and I are on a health journey. We’ve made a lot of changes over the last 1 ½-2 years. I’ve suffered with some health conditions and have made many diet & lifestyle changes in order to improve my health. I still have some things to work on and my goal is to include as many natural/holistic methods as possible in order to regain my health and may write in about my health challenges at a later date. My husband is in the process of making changes too. Most importantly, our three daughters (ages 5, 8 and 12) have been the catalysts for our diet & lifestyle shifts. I am writing in about our girls, primarily my middle daughter. I apologize in advance for the length of this email but will try to condense everything. I’ve been able to look back in hindsight and realize some of the things that brought us to this point. In 2017-2018, we incorporated a lot of wheat in our diet. I thought that was the healthier thing to do so we traded white bread and pasta, etc. for wheat. This, along with an overall less than nutritiously dense diet, regular antibiotic prescriptions, hectic lifestyle, etc. more than likely, contributed to the decline of their gut and digestive health. Our children began to experience many health and digestive issues. Not long after this “wheat swap”, my oldest daughter began to randomly break out in hives. My youngest was diagnosed with GERD and then my middle was diagnosed with GERD along with other conditions. My middle daughter also experienced continuous reflux, stomach pain, bloating, nausea, headaches…you name it! These things heightened last spring; traditional medicine, doctors and specialists were not able to help us and may have set us back with acid blockers. This was a very hard time for our family and for me as a mother as I watched my children suffer. My middle daughter had a feeling of malaise, had low energy and was just not herself. She was also having moments of getting hot/flushed, with rapid heartbeat, headache, stomachache, dizziness, etc. We saw a naturopathic doctor in the spring 2019 and she was very helpful at the time. I also ordered a Diagnostic Solutions GI Map stool test from another practitioner for my middle daughter and the results showed high opportunistic bacteria, extremely low Sec IgA and low normal/”good” bacteria. We were put on a protocol and after treatment, things improved, but my younger two daughters take Miralax to prevent constipation. We removed gluten and dairy and embraced a whole-food, plant-based diet, incorporating organic, grass-fed & finished meats, etc. basically removed most candy & sugar, improved hydration and sleep, as well as slowed down our lifestyle. I thought that we were done with health issues, but my younger two daughters were diagnosed with lichen sclerosis (after many doctor & specialist visits) during the summer of 2019. We recently began seeing another holistic practitioner. She’s been helpful and we’ve incorporated supportive supplements to provide key nutrients that their bodies were missing, as well as some natural based prevention methods. This practitioner uses a Zyto energy scan. I’m skeptical of the scan and don’t fully understand it, but felt it had low risk and low cost so it was worth a try. My daughters and myself had the scan done and the results showed many different types of viruses (to include lyme and co-infections), bacteria, fungi, metals, parasites, microbes, mold, dysbiosis, etc. for all of us. However, my middle daughter is starting to experience some of the same symptoms as last spring, but to a lesser degree. I am very concerned to say the least. I feel that gut & digestive repair is a big piece to this puzzle. She’s had many other symptoms too, such as skin rashes, peeling and itching, an ulcer on her gum, and most recently, we’ve been referred to the children’s orthopedic department for unexplained ankle pain and knee pain that significantly impacts her mobility and to neurology for tingling on the bottom of her feet. I realize that this a lot of information, but I wanted to give you some background on my children. Another MRI was ordered, along with some labs. I’ve ordered your OAT for all of my girls, along with your stool, mold and toxicity tests for my middle daughter. We want to be through and comprehensive in our approach. We don’t want to return to this place of ill-health ever again. I know you can only give advice, but if this were you & your daughters, what would you do? We are desperate to rebalance the body and restore health to my child. We live in a rural community and there are not many practitioners that explore and practice natural-based medicine, along with comprehensive testing. Needless to say, our lives have been disrupted and we’re looking to find a place of peace. I realize you won’t be able to answer this immediately, but wanted your direct feedback.Concerning my middle daughter: *What else could/should we be evaluating or exploring-tests or labs? *What do we do in the meantime while we wait on test results? *Do some of these symptoms sound like an issue with the vagal nerve or gastroparesis? *What are your thoughts on the energy/Zyto Scan? *How would I know if we actually have all of the microbes, infections, bacteria and viruses, etc. reported from the energy scan and the best protocol to treat these things? Where do we start? Please help. Any guidance and/or direction is appreciated. Thank you for your time. ~Chanel

Anthony: Hi Dr. Cabral, I’m a big fan and have been listening to you since you were interviewed by the MindPump crew. My wife is in her mid-40’s. She normally has difficulty sleeping however it has gotten worse over the past 6 months. Typically, it lasts around a week and is right before she gets her period. We both believe it is hormonal , common, but not normal. I searched previous podcasts and didn’t find anything. Hoping you can shed some light on the possible etiologies and point is in the right direction. Keep up the great work and thank you for all of the knowledge that you share. Happy Holidays! Anthony

Rose: Does too much sugar in older mans diet effect his prostrate levels??

Anonymous: Dr. Cabral, I am writing to let you know that I would love to have you record a follow up to podcast #1306:Mystery Illness Solved:Client Case Study (TWT). My story is similar to your complicated client in that I was diagnosed with a Myeloproliferative cancer in January 2018. I have primary myelofibrosis with a component of Polycythemia Vera (needing an occasional phlebotomy due to hematocrit >45). I also have a history of Hashimotos Thyroiditis (currently on watch and wait) and reflux diagnosed a few years before. I have never had any other health problems in my life andI have been fairly active and healthy. November 2017 when my abnormal bloodwork was found I started an Anti-inflammatory diet and was ultimately able to bring my TPO antibodies from 150 to 70 and heal my reflux. Unfortunately as I continued trying for the next year to heal myself I was not able to improve my blood work with the myelofibrosis. In November 2018 I began working with a Functional Medicine practitioner and he found that I had high levels of mycotoxins, mercury, gut dysbiosis, and parasites. For the next year we worked to resolve and eradicate everything we found with the necessary protocols. I have been dry brushing, juicing, sauna sessions, coffee enemas, DCD, intermittent fasting, weekly 24 hour fast, supplementing, and on a anti-inflammatory diet. I even enrolled in IHP level 1 and 2 in January 2019 in order to further my education. I was trained in conventional medicine as a Physician Assistant and now I feel I could never practice the same way again due to what I have learned in experiencing this health journey. I feel better than I ever have in the past 20 years, the problem is, is that the Myelofibrosis continues to progress and we are at a point where my oncologist is suggesting I need to start on low dose chemotherapy. SO....I would love to hear what you found with your client and how you approached it and your results. I am so thankful for finding you and your wonderful community. Your positive demeanor and messages inspires me in my journey. Thank you for all you do.
