I'll always remember this quote that I heard when interning under an old school naturopath:

"The world doesn't need any more medical specialists - What we need are more generalists..."

What he meant by this wasn't that there isn't a time and place to see a specialist for a health condition, but the problem is many specialists aren't looking at the entire picture of how the whole body is interconnected...

This connection couldn't be more pronounced than the link between link between stress, infertility, and weight gain, yet most doctors and IVF specialists completely miss it...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 516 as I share with both men and women how to uncover the underlying root cause holding them back from improving their physical, mental, sexual, and emotional well-being - Enjoy the show!

If you have increased intestinal permeability (aka "leaky gut") there are many ways to try to heal & seal the gut wall...

The problem is that there's really only one best way to do it...

Sure, you could use probiotics, fermented food, and bone broth, but those items simply do not work for the majority of people...

The reason is that although people get the foods and nutritional supplements right a lot of the time, what they miss is the correct order in which to implement them...

Unfortunately, the order you use your anti-bacterial/fungal herbal blends, biofilm disruptors, and probiotics is the key to whether or not your gut will ever fully heal (and seal up)...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 515 for the exact details on how I help my private wellness clients heal & seal their leaky gut issues - Enjoy the show!

Welcome back to Day 2 of the Cabral #HouseCall podcasts!

We have more great questions to answer today from our community and I'm looking forward to getting started!

Lindsey: Hi I've been through some hormonal testing which has now put me on the supplements below. Please can you advise if I can take these supplements whilst I do the candida bacteria protocol. Please can you also advise if you can take other supplements like Maca Powder, acai powder, greens powder and flaxseed? Douglas Labs Ultra Preventive III w/ copper Douglas Labs B-Complex - Douglas Labs DHEA 25mg - Douglas Labs Glutathione Plus - Douglas Labs Zinc Picolinate (50mg) - Douglas Labs Ultra I-3-C –

  

Julie: Dear Dr. Cabral, my Dad got a stage 3 melanoma diagnosis a couple of weeks ago. The doctors removed the tumour and one lymph node with a 1mm metastasis. Now they want him to take interferone alpha for the next 18 months. Interferone has severe side effects like flu symptoms etc. From your naturopathic point of view is there anything we can do to ease the side effects? And do you have any additional suggestions to support his body and immune system in healing? Thank you so much for all you do to help people! Best regards, Julie

 

Dee: Hi Dr Cabral My husband and I finished your liver detox and are now on week 3 of the candida protocol. We had blood work done last week and got the results today. Our white blood cells are low. Besides cancer, what could be the cause of that? (We are getting another test in a few months to check count again) Also our vitamin D was low. We do have some of your D3....so should we be taking that along with candida protocol? Thanks for suggestions

  

Nikki: Hi there - I have tension headache symptoms but feel like it might be my TMJ. I'm sure you've answered this in the past so if you could direct me to the episodes to listen to, that would be great! I was having trouble locating it. Also, not necessary to read on your podcast but I just want to give a huge, THANK YOU! We have never met or spoken but I really do feel a genuine thoughtfulness and care from you and I'm so appreciative for this. I think many listeners probably feel this way and it's very special (and rare) to make that kind of connection. A million thank you's to you and your team...from the bottom of my healthy gut!

 

 

Sara: emf radiation - how important is it we acknowledge this, stay away from it. how can we stay safe and how can we help our bodies deal with it since impossible to avoid! Please explain the dangers of emf radiation as well. Shungite Bracelets help? Thank you!

 

 

Rebekah: Hello! I'm so grateful for this podcast! I've written in several times and appreciate every answer you've given me! What you're doing is truly amazing so thank you! I took an IgG food sensitivity test and found out that I am intolerant of a disturbing amount of foods, and very healthy foods such as sweet potatoes, mushrooms, beans, eggs, ginger, kale, collards, turmeric... just to name a few. I've had so many issue with my stomach and esophagus but never have issues with diarrhea or constipation. The main issues being nausea, reflux, indigestion, burping, and at its very worse, my left upper abdominal area will hurt so bad, swell and I will vomit for a full day. The pain in that area is worse than the actual vomiting at times. I'm staying away from acidic foods as well and eating large portions (anything more than a cup and a half) other wise I will get ill and have that pain. For the past 3 months I've had a whole foods organic smoothie every morning and the past 2 weeks I get really nauseous after the smoothie and I've had to stop drinking them. Between the IgG test and eliminating what I've had to based on the nausea and vomiting, I feel like i'll be eating cardboard in a month. What could this be?? Also I have purchased your all in one nutritional support powder and add it to my oatmeal in the morning since I'm so limited on what I can eat I know I need to get my nutrients in some how. Thank you so much in advanced.

 

Thank you for tuning into this weekend's HouseCall and I look forward to speaking with you again on tomorrow's Motivation & Mindset Monday!

Hello and welcome to Day 1 of our weekend Cabral #HouseCalls!

I'm looking forward to answering more of our community's questions today and we have some great ones!

Here are today's topics:

Alex: Hello Dr Cabral! I was wondering if you've ever done an episode on adaptogens. I've been reading about them and wondering if they are worth investing in. If possible, could you go over their effects/pros/con/benefits for the body? If you've already covered them, let me know what episode, and I'll check it out. Thanks for all you do. Alex

 

Andy: Hi Dr. Cabral, Our son, 19, is having problems with his wisdom teeth. They recommend he has them extracted. He has a needle phobia and has syncope with all needles, injections, IV. The receptionist at the oral surgeon mentioned he may need nitrous oxide before they put in an IV. I've read nitrous oxide can be detrimental to ones health especially if the MTHFR snps is in play. We don't know that though. He recently did the hair, tissue, mineral analysis and organic acids tests through your clinic but those results could be 4-6 weeks away. He's generally in good health. Do you see any issues with using the gas? Thanks for your help! Andy 


Lindsay: Hi Dr Cabral! I came across your profile on Instagram , and as a certified Holistic Nutritionist I've been following you closely since. I absolutely agree and align my thought process with all that you educate on, so thank you for all you do. My question is regarding fluoride. I've received numerous questions on this topic regarding "should we choose a fluoride free toothpaste since there is conflicting information on fluoride in the talks of it being in our water, oral care ( toothpaste etc). " Thanks so much , appreciate you ! Lindsay

 

Alyssa: Hi, I have been experiencing digestive distress for the past 3-5 years. I am pretty certain that I am gluten intolerant, though I tested negative for Celiac (when I eat gluten, i experience symptoms such as significant bloat, belching, fatigue, sometimes nausea; when I eat gluten-free bread or meals, I feel OK). Additionally, I experience similar symptoms even when I am avoiding gluten. I've been to a couple different GI's, and one of which was helpful in the sense that he suggested I try a breath test for SIBO; I tested positive. And the test noted that I produce an overabundance of methane gas. My relief was through-the-roof: "I finally found out what is wrong with me!". However, I asked my doctor some follow-up questions and he left me feeling less relieved and a bit in the dark on some things. So, through some research and a friend's recommendation, I am reaching out to you in hope that you may have the answers to some questions or at least be able to provide some sort of guidance. - Do any foods trigger bacteria overgrowth or producing methane gas? - How can this be avoided in the future? - Once the 2 weeks pass and I get the bacteria out, would you suggest I immediately start taking probiotics to introduce good bacteria and build up the lining again? If so, do you suggest any probiotics' brand or type in particular? - I often experience fatigue. Do you believe this could be a direct effect of SIBO or consuming gluten if I'm gluten intolerant? My doctor told me that the recurrence is real and is about 50%; he is not able to identify if foods trigger the bacteria overgrowth or provide suggestions on how to perhaps avoid this in the future. He also cannot say if he recommends probiotic, based on conflicting evidence. Any insight you are able to offer is greatly appreciated! Best, Alyssa

 

Stephanie: Hello About 4 months ago I stopped eating gluten and dairy products and have gotten relief from many health issues and feel tremendously better. I feel silly asking this but one thing I noticed is that I no longer have issues with frequent urination/overactive bladder (was never officially diagnosed with this by a doctor but it was always an issue). I am just wondering if this could somehow be related? Thanks for any info you can provide! :) Stephanie

 

Christie: I stumbled across your podcast and man am I glad I did, your podcasts are inspiring and I finally have hope that one day I can just be normal! So thank you thank you for all that you do!! 6 years ago I had the vertical sleeve gastrectomy, after losing 120 pounds I got pregnant with my 3rd son. While pregnant with my son my ferritin levels were untraceable and I still struggle to keep those numbers up. I’ve struggled to keep my vitamin D levels up but I've struggled with that for over 15 years. I had an IUD in for 8 months and was so depressed that I was sucicidal, plus I gained 40lbs while on it. I had it removed and now I can’t get the 40lbs off (that was 2 years ago), but the depression is better. Also the week before my period (we call it shark week) I am insane my emotions are all over the place from depression to suddenly happy and inspired to angry and the only time I feel normal is when I'm on my period I feel great when I'm on my period but the weeks before and after are pretty scary. No matter how much I sleep, I still find it hard to get out of bed in the morning and I need a nap in order to finish functioning during the day. I have to exercise at night because after working out I have to go straight to bed and if I workout in the morning then I sleep all day. My doctor has tested my thyroid loads of times and TSH is 1.98 within the numbers I guess. My doctors say that I have “Adjustment Disorder” as well as exercise induced asthma and was diagnosed with degenerative arthritis in my low back at age 30 (6 years ago) but I refuse to be on medication for any of it, I just deal with the pain and go every week to the chiropractors for the pain (i won’t even take Tylenol) and try and avoid exercising outside so I don’t go into an asthma fit. Over the past 10 months I've been on 10 different antibiotics, I've had 2 root canals, 2 nasal infections, 2 vaginal bacterial infections, and pneumonia and am currently on an antibiotic. I just would like to know where you think I should start first, what test do you suggest I start with? My doctors just want to put me on medication and I want to fix the problems, not mask them and create more issues than I already have! Also several doctors just shrug me off and say “you’re normal” and just a tired mom of three boys but man I certainly don’t feel normal. Help please!

Thank you for tuning in today and we'll be back tomorrow with another HouseCall!
