The last thing I want you to do is worry that you're going to get cancer...

Worry, fear, and helplessness, are certainly all helping hands in causing dis-ease and cancer, so let's push those aside during this conversation...

What I do want to do right now is share with you some important information that could possibly save your or a loved one's life...

When cancer is caught early enough, natural treatment protocols (and conventional measures) can intervene and return your body back to balance...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 578 for the 10 early warning signs of cancer not to ignore - Enjoy the show!

In our 24/7/365 hustle society we may have lost sight of the fact that being busy does not mean you're accomplishing anything...

To me, one of the worst things I believe you could do is to "work hard" and not get any results to show for it...

This is what truly leads to frustration and eventually to giving up on your goals...

But it doesn't have to be that way, and on today's #CabralConcept 577 I want to share with you why you may not be making (as much) progress as you'd like - Enjoy the show!

Welcome back to day 2 of our weekend Cabral HouseCalls!

I'm really looking forward to doing my best to answer your questions today that have been coming in over the past few weeks, so let's get started!

Adalyn: Hi Dr Cabral, I am so grateful for your podcast and have to admit I'm completely addicted. I love all the knowledge and especially the science behind it. I am a pitta body type and I'm lectin sensitive. I have plateaued in my weight loss. I have bloating, acne around my nose and chin, I'm extremely fatigued, brain fog, and I think I deal with some poor circulation and inflammation as my limbs go numb easily and my knees ache a lot. I hike 3-5 days a week and do weight training 2-3 days a week. I've had some Mercury fillings removed in the last year. I wondered if you had any ideas what might be going on and what I can do to heal my body? Thank you so much!!

Cynthia: hi Stephen, You're a true blessing, thank you for all you do. My almost fifteen year old (125 lb) has had IB for 5 years, often worse in the mornings. He has had a food sensitivity test through our naturopath dr.and tested very high for dairy and mid range for wheat. Seven years ago he contracted e.coli while vacationing in Mexico and was put on a probiotic that only helped temporarily. Most mornings he has cramping and diaerrea usually after eating breakfast but lately after eating most meals. He also tiny white raised bumps on his cheeks and upper arms, he is an ectomorph body type. His life is very affected by the IB to the point where is is nervous to venture too far from home. i have listened to your healthy gut podcasts and was wondering if thats the exact route i should go with a teenager. With many thanks, Cynthia

Mariellen: hi dr Cabral!!!! I have been struggling with cystic acne and have had no luck getting rid of it. I am on DIM and adrenal response through you guys and it hasn't seemed to calm down at all. Through my own research, I have looked into insulin levels being too high and maybe that being the cause of it? I've never had tests done but I do have a lot of potatoes in my diet, frequent urination (like I literally urinate probably 20+ a day), always hungry. I have read that insulin is frequently linked to what people just write off as hormonal acne. I am unfortunately still on hormonal birth control and am going to stay on it until after my wedding because last time I tried to get off of it my skin went even crazier and I was breaking out all over my back! I suffer from sinus inflammation as well. Not sure what information will help. How would I figure out if this is the root of my issue? And what natural ways can I go about this?

To add to my last question I can't remember if I wrote I haven't had an actual period in two months now. I get the big massive headache right before I would "get it" and all the symptoms just no actual menstration 

Sam: suffer from alopecia and noticed it triggered deep after taking antibiotics. Is alopecia reversible via diet?

Elizabeth: Hi Dr Cabral, I wondered your thoughts on Pycnogenol, aka pine bark extract. I was looking into it to potentially assist with melasma, eye sight and tinnitus. I also read it can help with jet lag. Although I was little concerned to read that it may cause stomach issues? I presume it's relatively safe to use, just maybe not long term? Thanks so much for your awesome podcasts!!

Tina: Hi Steve. First I want to say thank you for your passion in the world of natural healing. I recently discovered you and have been bing listening to all your podcast. My question is about my 16 year old daughter. She has been having what I believe to be ovarian cyst pain monthly. I don't believe in giving my family advil but the past couple of months she was in tears and I broke down and gave it to her. Can you recommend something else to help her with this pain? And is there something we can do to keep her from having these? (balancing hormones?) Also want to mention that she was diagnosed with POTS 4 years ago. It's pretty mild and doesn't sideline her too much. I've long suspected it might be related to gut issues. Would love your thoughts! Thanks again!! Tina

 

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

I hope you had a fantastic last week and now it's that time again where we get to check in with the community and see what questions we have for this weekend!

Here are today's Q&A's: 

Camille: Hi Dr. Cabral, In my house, you are known as "Cabral"...I talk about you and quote you SO much, we've just shortened it to Cabral...anyway, I use your All in One Daily shake and daily fruits & vegetable powder in the smoothies I make every singe day for my husband and I. I also take your activated B everyday. I have completed one of your 7 day detox programs with huge success. Swear by those for sure. My question today is: What do you think about collagen powder or products? I am 58 yrs old and wonder if I need to use this or if there is really any benefit. If you do recommend them, what is a good one to use? I follow your clean eating menu from the detox and exercise about 20 minutes 6 days a week. Thank you in advance. Your so kind to share your wisdom in so many ways. Camille

 

Cindy: Hello there Stephen Cabral. God bless you and your team for all you do for everyone! My question is... I've suffering from fibroids for like 3 months. I cramp all day everyday and now I have low back pain. What can I do to shrink these fibroids? Pls help! Thank you in advance! 

Maryanne: Dr. Cabral, i have listened to all your podcasts and want to thank you for all the education you provide in the area of naturopathic medicine. I have learned so much that has changed the lives of my family and myself! I have an interesting problem that I want your opinion on. 5 months ago, my left knee developed a PAINLESS effusion that since then as recurred approximately every 10 days. During that time my knee is quite stiff and difficult to move in full range of motion, but doesn't prevent me from living life. It lasts 2-3 days and then resolves until the next time. Between exacerbations, i have some mild tingling in BOTH of my knees. It is a predictable occurrence that I can keep track of on my calendar! I don't have any other joint pain or swelling except mild right thumb pain that I believe is related to computer work. I had blood work done by my PCP and it was negative for lyme, rheumatoid factor and inflammatory markers. My PCP was at a loss for what this could be as well. I have eliminated gluten and sugar from my diet, but sometimes indulge. I rarely eat dairy as well. I have researched the internet and have read about intermittent hydrarthrosis which seems to describe my problem exactly. I am reluctant to see a rheumatologist because this is somewhat manageable, although frustrating during the days my knee is swollen. It doesn't hurt but can slow me down. I'm a 54 year old post menopausal woman in good health, not overweight and no chronic health problems. I plan on doing your 7-day detox, but am also wondering what else I can do to address this problem? I'm afraid this could evolve into rheumatoid arthritis or some other auto immune illness. My father had RA. I really appreciate your time in addressing my health concerns. Thanks again for all your podcasts and great information.

 

Maya: Hi Dr. Cabral! I have been struggling to lose excess weight in the lower half of my body only. I also experience extreme brain fog, difficulty focusing and have been unable to have an orgasm. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's, adrenal fatigue, gut permeability and Epstein-Barr. I've done a lot of functional testing and most recently, I did a neuroadrenal test from Neuroscience that showed I have low sympathetic tone, high immune activation and central imbalance, low serotonin, epinephrine and norepinephrine and high cortisol levels. I have taken countless supplements that don't seem to make a difference. I have experiemneted with paleo, AIP and ketogenic diets. And I have tried various types of exercise, including HIIT, circuit and resistance training, yoga, qigong, etc. I meditate, journal and practice self love regularly and am getting frustrated with the lack of results. Would love any advice on any or all of the above. Thank you so so much for everything you do. I wish all doctors were like you! Best, Maya

Jen: I was reading an aarticle about how boosting 1GF-1 Protein by eating certain foods in a particular order, can rid your body of cellulite permanently. I  wondered what your thoughts were on this. If cellulite is a toxicity issue, then whats the best way to rid your cells of all those toxins? Would eating these foods do it?

Thomas: Love your podcast!! Everyone talks about ways to loose weight but how about if you want to put on 10 pounds? I went gluten free about 3 years ago and on what I would call a whole foods diet. I love the results, less inflammation. I have back surgery 10 plus years ago and still had a little swelling around the scar for years and the gluten free diet really helped with that and with what doctors where calling arthritis but I guess was really just inflammation. That all said I went from 185 pounds to around 170. I am 6' 2'' and pretty active and can easily carry another 10 pounds put am one of those people that does not can weight very easily. Even when I ate anything it was hard to maintain 185. Any ideas how I can put on healthy weight?

 

I hope you enjoyed today's community Q&A and be sure to come back tomorrow where we answer more of your questions!

I'll be the first one to tell you that I do not promote or recommend weight loss supplements...

I prefer people to boost their metabolism through sustainable approaches using nutrition, exercise, and other healthy lifestyle factors...

However, since I get asked quite often if there are any supplements that have been proven to help lose weight, I did want to share the ones with actual research behind them...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 574 for an unbiased breakdown on which weight loss supplements actually work - Enjoy the show!
