Just a few years back I was pushing my body hard with working out, but I was missing one crucial component to staying healthy, energetic, and injury free...

What I didn't realize is that all of us have an upper limit on how hard we can push our bodies if we're not keeping them balanced through certain forms of "soft" exercise, additional rest, stretching, nutrition, and other balancing protocols...

Tune into to today's #CabralConcept 348 to find out how to rebalance your exercise program and life for maximum health, happiness, and body transformation - Enjoy the show!

We seem to live in a world where we must force ourselves to fit into a one size fits all approach preached by the media and "experts..."

The problem is that although we are all human and have the same basic physiology, how we respond to nutrition, exercise, stress, and pathogens varies greatly from one individual to another...

This makes cook-cutter programs and advice obsolete and frustrating for those following the advice, but not getting the results they deserve...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 347 for the answer and alternatives to whether or not you should eat only when you're hungry - Enjoy the show!

It's unfortunate, but by the time we typically think about taking care of our brain, it may be too late...

This is because hidden damage of brain diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, dementia, and others start decades before the initial symptoms begin to show up...

Our 2nd #HouseCall of the weekend is here!

And here are today's community questions & answers:

Lindsey: Hi Stephen, I have been listening for a while and following on your Instagram page (which I like to recommend to all my followers too) for a while now. I am quite worried about my mum at the moment who was put on methotrexate a few years ago as her psoriasis and arthritis was so bad. (She has had it since being a teenager and is now 64) At the moment she has no immunity, she catches everything; colds, chest infections, sickness bugs etc and I don't think I've seen her well in a while. She is scared to come off this immune suppressor due to the pain/ discomfort that will come back but she currently hasn't go any quality of life anyway? How can you help her all the way from the UK? I've bought and done your detox etc so I'm aware of the products in your store but I'm not sure if you could help her here in the U.K with tests etc as you need blood turnarounds quickly etc. Thanks and keep up the good work Lindsey

 

Stacey: Hi, just wondering if you can do a podcast on dandruff, itchy, oily scalp and the root causes behind it. Solutions to heal! Thanks

 

"Mel from Australia" and "MN" your question did not come through... Please resubmit!

 

Shahna: Love the podcast and your approach and comprehensive explanations to health. The podcast is a daily must. Instagram is fabulous, too. Thank you! Now the question... My husband is 51 years old and has hardening of the skin on his toes, especially the pinky toe and hardening of the nails. To describe the affected nails they look clawlike and come to a point. He used to be an executive chef before our marriage of four years and indulged in food and drink along with his work, worked long hours on his feet and basically wore himself out for many years. He switched to an outdoor job approximately 15 years ago and thought the hardening occurred due to wearing boots. He suffered from gout like symptoms a few months ago and has agreed to a vegetarian diet for the majority of his diet. He is not overweight, maybe a bit of extra weight in his stomach. FYI I have purchased your detox program for both of us. He has the option of one or two weeks. He isn't taking a vitamin or supplement currently, but I did order for him your daily activated multi vitamin and will include your generous vitamin d with it. Please advise. Many, many heartfelt thanks. I am spreading the word. Thank you.

 

I hope you enjoyed the Q&A and all the tips along the way!

The first Cabral #HouseCall of the weekend is here and we have quite a show for today!

The questions are amazing, as always, and hopefully I did each one justice... Check out today's community questions:

Kate: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have been working with a naturalpath for several years to help restore hormone balance (I'm a 32 yr. old female with severe estrogen dominance symptoms!). We have tried so many different things like, healing adrenals, boosting thyroid, anti-inflammatory plant based diet, etc. But my progesterone is still very low. Do you recommend BHRT? My doc wants to put me on it for a few months on days 11-28 of my cycle and see if she can "jumpstart" production? There is a lot of conflicting info when it comes to BHRT! Thoughts?

 

Rachna: Good morning I am interested in having the Weight Loss test done however, can you confirm if this test can be done for someone that lives in Canada? Thank you!

 

Chelsea: I have to have a CT scan, what are some things I can do to help offset the radiation in my system? Are there any detox products you recommend or any major uptick in certain foods? Will spending extra time doing grounding work help? What about an Epsom soak or infared sauna? Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my question and thank you for your podcast, I appreciate the information you share.

 

Laura: Hi . Do you work with patients out of state by phone?

 

Bonnie: Hi Dr. Cabral, Can you please talk about iodine supplementation and if it is necessary? I have used sea salt for years and it does not contain iodine. I have read about the need for iodine supplementation in the absence of iodized salt, but the more I read, the more I am confused about how much to take, or if I even need it. Details about me, if needed: I am 38 years old, 5'7" and 114 pounds. I am healthy mother of 3 children, but have been struggling to balance some issues I believe are hormone related (hairloss/libido/mood/energy). My annual bloodwork shows my thyroid to be within normal range according to my physician (T3: 30.%, T4: 7.4 UG/DL, T7: 2.19, TSH: .6 UIU/ML), low vitamin D (currently 58 after supplementing 4000iu daily for one year. Prior to starting supplement was 21). My diet has been primarily Paleo for the past 5 years. I am working at transitioning to less meat and adding in limited grains and legumes. I am currently on day 4 of your 7 day detox and just purchased the daily support and greens powder, I plan to try starting my day this way following my detox. Despite years of attempting to get what I need from food. I need something that works! Thank you for your podcasts, I have really enjoyed them! Bonnie

 

I hoped you enjoyed the show and I can't wait to bring you Part 2 tomorrow - I'll talk with you then!

Once you begin viewing weight loss as more than "calories in vs. calories out" you will be well on your way to finally achieving your goals...

In my practice, I do my best to teach people that rebalancing your metabolism, hormones, inflammation, and blood sugar, are far more important to long term-success...

However, in the short-term there are a number of ways you can lose the weight stress-free without falling for the top 3 most common reasons people fail at weight loss...

We're back with our 2nd HouseCall of the weekend!

Here are today's community questions:

Jeni: Hi Dr Cabral! I have a question regarding two of my boys. One is sixteen years old, the other is 7. Both suffer from super dry, cracked hands. They play with basketballs and footballs regularly, which seems to make their fingers spit and crack even more. It is extremely painful for them. Is there anything I can try that is natural, or anything I should be looking out for? We have tried them sleeping with cotton gloves with different things on their hands. That doesn't seem to help at all. Their doctors have prescribed steroid cream which I am against, but, again have tried. That didn't even touch the problem so after two weeks we stopped that. Any suggestions would be helpful!

 

Deb: Over the years I have exercised, danced and ran up and down stairs caring for my family. I have gardened or purchased most of our plant based foods from local farms. But now at age 63, I have experienced trouble with my right knee for about 3 years which flairs up whenever I used the steps, stand to long washing dishes or sit to long watching TV. When I get up in the morning so my knee hasn't been supporting weight, all is well until I use the steps. I am now about 30 lbs over weight and know that if I could lose the extra weight it will probably help but am limited as to what I can do. What could you suggest?

 

Ray S: I saw that you are giving away free bottles of vitamin this month and i know I should be taking it. Could you tell much how much though? Does it matter my age or weight? Does it matter what kind?

 

Andrew C: Thank you for all you do. I’m a long time listener, but just writing in for the first time… My question is that I am a profuse sweater and can’t seem to control it. I sweat through my shirt everyday and if I exercise I leave a pool of sweat wherever I am. Is this genetic and can I do anything about it? Thanks for your help!

 

Thank you for submitting your questions this week and I hope you enjoyed the Q&A and all the tips along the way!

Jan 7, 2017

After a great start to the year reviewing many of the most popular topics for achieving your health, weight loss, and anti-aging goals, we're now going to answer our first community questions on today's Cabral HouseCall!

Let's get started!

Matthew: Hello Dr. Cabral I love listening to your podcast. I know that you can tell things about your health by looking at your nails, but what do white marks on my finger nails mean. Ive read it could be an iron deficiency but I wanted to know what you thought. Thanks.

 

Alexandra: Hi Dr. Cabral! My name is Alexandra. I've asked questions on your podcast in the past, and I keep up with your podcasts and Instagram posts daily. Thank you for putting all of your information out there for people like me! I've learned so much. You're one of the only people I've listened to who has the view on health and wellness as I aspire to have! I recently just graduated and am going back to school to complete a nutrition program, but want to practice holistically and have an integrative approach. Do you allow people to shadow in your practice? I would love to be able to sit in on one consultation, specifically pertaining to nutrition. I feel as if I would learn so much, probably more than any kind of 'clinical' rotation I would ever have in school. Looking forward to hearing from you! Thanks for your time, Alex

 

Alana & Mark: Hello Stephen Cabral & team! My husband and I have both ordered your Parasite Protocol in the past and are seriously contemplating ordering 2 of your Genetic DNA Wellness Packages and 2 of your Food Sensitivity Testing Packages- however we know you offer discounts once a month on different things. As we are both listeners to your podcasts, will there be any discounts coming up on either of those tests we could use? We believe in investing in our health, for knowledge in this case truly is power, yet we want to do so wisely. Thank you, Alana & Mark

 

Emily: Hello Dr. Cabral.. I'm writing to ask you what I can do to help my boyfriend of 3 years.. long story short... he has a brain condition that's extremely rare, called palatal myoclonus. After years of no answers a Dr found nerves pressing in his brain, in the trigiminal region. He has has awful jaw and face spasms, painful head pressure, clicking in the ears, head fogginess, headaches upon waking etc..he has been through the ringer.. seen over 35 doctors and even had brain surgery 4 months ago. There are so many symptoms for this problem.. but his main issue is constant head pressure and pain. I don't know why I'm writing other than desperation or even really asking, just wondering if there's any type of pain relief treatment you could recommend. I'm an every day listener of your podcast and I really respect your work. Any response is greatly appreciated Thank you Emily

 

Thank you everyone for tuning in and I'll be back tomorrow answering more of your questions!

We're back with the weekly #FridayReview and today I have 4 items I can't wait to share with you!

The first one is more of a rant on how there's so much misinformation and blatant manipulation of the truth (even in scientific research studies) that it's causing people to become confused as to where to turn and what to do...

Next up, I'm revealing a fun "Sunshine Finder" app, as well as my recommendation when it comes to sinus congestion. Finally, we'll wrap up with the #1 site to look up household products to find out the hidden toxins that may lie in them...

It's unfortunate that many people are told they are simply eating too many calories or not exercising enough, which is why they can't keep the weight off...

That simply couldn't be any further from the truth...

Sure, some people do eat too much and need to move more, but for the most part if you're trying to lose weight you've already reduced your calories and started to be more active...

The problem is that losing weight and keeping it off forever is a metabolic issue and has far more to do with balancing your hormones than it does with "calories in vs. calories out..."

On today's #CabralConcept 333 I'll share the details with you on how you can finally uncover the hidden root causes keeping you from your ideal healthy body - Enjoy the show!

Most people view inflammation as something bad, but I have a much different view of it…

The media has made inflammation out to be the bad guy and something that is supposed to be wiped out through pharmaceutical drugs or nutritional supplements…

However, what they haven't told you is that inflammation is actually a warning sign of some type of tissue trauma that has happened in the body…

This means that if you simply try to mask the symptoms of inflammation you are still not treating the hidden root cause of the true health issue…

Tune in to today's CabralConcept 332 to find out how to naturally flush inflammation from your body while healing from the inside out at the same time – Enjoy the show!

Why is it that almost everyone sets New Year's goals for them self, but 92% fail when it comes to achieving what they set out to do?

(This literally means 9 out of 10 people never reach their goals!)

I don't believe it's for lack of wanting to be, do, or get a new result in their life. Instead, I think it's simply that no one has ever taught them how to go about strategically setting their goals to get what they want out of life...

On today's #CabralConcept 331, I'm going to share with you the "secret" goal setting success formula I was taught many years ago and now use in my own private practice to help people make goal setting fun and easy to achieve - Enjoy the Show!

Here are today's community questions we'll be covering!

Psoriasis Suffer: Hi Dr. Cabral. I truly appreciate all you do and you work has inspired me to not give up. The problem is that I have dealt with psoraisis since I was a child and Nothing seems to work… It often gets better for a short time and then relapses. It makes relationships and my social life very difficult. I really need your help and advice. Thank you thank you Thank you!

 

Lorraine: Should I take a b-complex vitamin. If so, which one. Am I doing too much b-complex if I’m doing your all-in-one too? 

 

Sally: Hi Dr. Cabral I love your podcast and just started to listen to all the back episodes to catch up - I apologize if you already answered my question… I’ve been suffering from migraines for over a decade. I just recently heard you say it could be food related. How so, and how am I able to find out what I’m allergic to. What foods should I avoid if I get migraines? Thank you so much!

 

Thank you again for tuning and I can't wait to share with you the start to a brand New Year of the #CabralConcept tomorrow - stay tuned!
