Viruses are on of the most overlooked reasons for poor health, fatigue, acne, low mood, brain fog, auto-immune, and inflammatory health conditions...

What starts as a seamlessly harmless microbe ends up entering your system and then replicating until it literally wears down your immune system...

The virus can then move into your actual DNA and bury itself so deep that it can be difficult to eradicate them...

Luckily, we have scientifically proven all-natural methods for boosting the immune system, killing viruses, stopping the replication process, and beginning your recovery...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept #760 to discover how to destroy viruses, Herpes, Shingles and cold sores - Enjoy the show!

There really is one BEST way for achieving your desired goals and stepping into the life you've envisioned for yourself.

It's a 3 step system that has been passed down for thousands of years through oral and written teachings:

The 1st step is becoming crystal clear on exactly what you desire...

The 2nd step is now transforming those thoughts into actions that will ultimately lead you to your goal...

And the 3rd step is removing yourself from the need to control the outcome...

It's this last step that most people have never been taught, which is why many people are literally blocking themselves from achieving their goals...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 759 to figure out how to let go of your need for controlling the outcome, so that you can finally truly create the life you've always desired - Enjoy the show!

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!

Lena: Hey Stephen, You've got a listener from paris! I really like your podcast, it is very informative! keep the good work ;) I've got a question about myself, i would sooo love for you to answer I will really try to be short ;) My name is Léna, I'm 30 year old, vegan, gluten free girl and since last july, i've began having big pain in my belly every time i ate, like the pain one got with gastroenteritis, where you move in all directions with your hands around your belly but never feeling relieved. It was lasting about 2 to 3 hours (maybe the time of digestion) with big pains on my back every time i ate. My eosinophils were very high in august, around 2200 (the high limit is in about 580!) then it drops to 1800 and a few months later to 750 but i think it did go up again later (i didn't do another analysis but had giant pains). I did a lot of blood tests, there were no parasites founded (but i took an anti-parasite pill), no H pilory, i did biopsies, 2 fibroscopies, 1 coloscopy but nothing founded I have a appointment in internal medecine at a hopital in a few months to find why i got very high and anormal eosinophils I did have a test to know if i'm sensitive to some foods: there were brazil nuts, eggs and some other nuts (little reaction) and other foods that i don't even eat (like corn, barley, milk etc.) i totally stopped brazil nuts and eggs for now. I will try to reintroduce them in a few months Anyway, my pains hurt for six months and in december, when I was really tired of suffering every time i ate (it was getting worse again), i saw a nutritherapist and she said to stop eating carbs (fruits, butternuts and vegetables like carrots and beets) for a short period of time and to increase anti inflammatory oils and decrease proteins. A very low carb globally (more vegan ketolike actually). I have complements like turmeric (curcumin), vitamin D, zinc, b12, glutamine, fish oils (and estroblock but it has nothing to do with that!) And in 3 days my pains decrease immensely! It's been almost a month and I already feel better. Sometimes i feel unconfortable or i feel pain but nothing compared to before But, i'm feeling a bit tired and i find it weird to eat so much fat (like more than a 120 g a day, less than 50 grams of net carbs a day but i'm more at 25g, and 60 gr of protein). And i didn't have my period this month... I'm afraid of my thyroid, my hormones  and especially my acne since i had cystic acne all my life and it's been fine since the last year, one year after stopping the pill (which i had for 14 years!!!) So, my questions are: what do you think could explain my pains if it's not parasites or allergies? If you have an idea, what could be the solutions to feel better and have a normal life, which i so much want Should i maintain this "vegan keto diet" or what should I do? What complements should I take to regulate my hormones and not have acne. i feel so lost between opposite articles on the web about low carb / keto / diet / hormones, i feel quite abandonned by doctors, and it's just me, a young girl, stuck with this problem thank you so much for answering this, it would really mean a lot to me cheers from France because yes, even french people are listening to your podcast! ps: i always had trouble with digestion, but more like bloating and gas. I'm very sensitive. i'm very thin, i do sport, i eat a lot of vegetables ;)

 

Ryan: Hey Dr. Cabral I am reaching to you on a recommendation from one of my clients and I believe your friend, Dave Armstrong "Army", in regards to my father. In September 2017 he had a partial knee replacement that resulted in an infection followed by heavy antibiotic treatment. Since that time he has been suffering with a multitude of health issues concerning his kidneys, blood platelets, diabetes, as well as his pancreatic and digestive function.  He has seen over a half dozen different doctors and specialists and gone through just about every test or scan that they can think of.  Yet, collectively they have absolutely zero idea of what's going on.  The only answer they have given is more medication to mask the real problems. I fear that they will never get to the bottom of it and will just continue to medicate the symptoms away until one of the systems eventually fails. I'm not sure how your practice works but I would like to set up a consultation for him if possible. I will also be contacting your office as instructed by Julia via Dave.

 

J.A.: Hi Dr Cabral, Love your podcast and learning about natural medicine. I am on a healing journey to resolve 'chronic mystery pain' that came on me 2 years ago and has not left. I have addressed Heavy Metals and had extensive testing OAT, HTMA all look ok. The only thing left is elevated LFT and billirubin my practitioner thinks this could be causing excess estrogen/histamine. So working to balance hormones via the liver. Aside from this I want to do your 7 day detox but will have to tweak it as I am very sensitive to 'pea' on IGG so will use hemp protein and supps my ND has given me. My question - sorry took a while to get to it! but trying to give full picture is about meals. Since listening to your last podcast (705) on 3 meals per day I anted your take on how I eat to assist with the above. I eat a plantbased diet. My day starts with a smoothie at 5.30am (I start work at 7am) so it is a long day and hence I usually have a snack (e.g hummus on rice cakes at about 10am. Lunch which is a salad with quinoa/veg etc at 12.30pm. I then have another snack like a piece of fruit at about 2. then dinner at about 7. Because I have a longer day am I ok to snack? or am I overloading my body and delaying healing? should my snack be protein shakes? Weight is stable and I don't need to lose weight. Pitta/Kapha body type. Any additional comments on the whole situation appreciated. Happy New Year! I will be listening to every podcast :)

Mel: Hi, not sure if you received my question last time... Sorry if you did... What ate your thought on baby formula if it has to be given along with breastfeeding? First foods for baby? Also, best contraception to avoid pill?

Amelia: Hi Dr. Cabral, I'm in my 40's and have been researching the best supplements for hair growth and skin firming. I have heard about things like Collagen Love and Vital proteins, but I'm not sure what brands to trust to work. Can you please recommend a few that are great for both skin collagen and tightening as well as hair growth? Thanks Amelia

Dee: Hi Dr Cabral, Can you recommend alternatives to plastic wraps and storage baggies? I’m seeing some silicone options, ((specifically Stasher brand)) but I was wondering if there’s anything better or more cost effective. Thanks for info Dee

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:

Deborah: Quick question about the CBD Oil - my daughter will be interviewing for jobs shortly and was concerned about the affect this product will have on any blood tests she may have to have. We are aware that the product does not contain THC which is one thing these blood tests look for, but will the CBD Oil have any other effect on a drug test? Also, she currently takes 50 mgs. of Trazadone for insomnia and has since she was young - anxiety runs in the family, as does insomnia, so I'm thinking the CBD Oil may help with her sleep issues and GAD. Should we be concerned about her taking the CBD Oil while also taking the Trazadone? Thanks for your help.

Cynthia: Hi Dr Cabral, I have been following you and listening to you for a while. I have learned so much from your podcasts. I am at a loss as to what to do at this point. I have followed and read books by Dr Mercola and other like him for years. It seems like everyone has gotten on the band wagon with the Keto diet. I know it works but I didn’t always feel great on it and there was part of me that just knew that all the extra protein that many said was ok couldn’t be good for you. I know people that lost a ton on the Paleo as well. Again, there was a part of me that did not believe that some healthy grains are good for you. I even use a flour called Einkorn that has not been genetically modified. I have eaten non gmo/organic for years now. I also eat a very clean diet staying away from most processed foods. I have the knowledge, maybe too much and can’t seem to get it right when it comes to what is the best diet for me. I liven the north east and it is hard to fine a Dr that believes in a more holistic way of health. The couple I found are only for the wealthy. I found a Dr who’s claim was integrative medicine and who accepted my insurance. I was hopeful. I shared my history with her as follows. "I gained a lot of weight with my first child ( 95 lbs) and struggled to loose it. I had a bad knee injury from hiking years ago which at times made it hard to exercise. It worsened in time resulting in surgeries and a total knee replacement.Three children later and after 30 years of loosing 20-30 lbs and gaining it back plus some I am in need of loosing 100lbs. I crave carbs and sugar. I always used all organic ingrediance in my cooking and baking and pretty much cook everything from scratch. I love salads, a variety of vegetables, green smoothies, and many healthy foods. I even eat fermented foods. I know I eat too much and I know surger, even organic is not good for me. My cravings make me feel like an addict at times. I am sick of thinking about food so much!” I shared more things that I had learned and read over the years and her response was, “you know more that most, including me.” At that time she said I would like to prescribe something that will help you with your cravings. She handed me a paper that said, Contrave-Naltruxone Wellbutrin. I said, is that a drug? To which she replied, yes! I was, needles to say so disappointed. I don’t even take aspirin and this, “alternative” Dr. wants to put me on a drug to help with my eating! For how long, a month a year, life, then what? I never went back. So here I am deciding on the next course of action. I saved $300.00 and am wondering if I should do the Dr. Cabral 21 day detox to start and then get some testing done. Believe me, I would drive to Boston to see you if my insurance covered it. I really need help and I trust your knowledge and education and respect your desire to help others. You of all the Drs. I have listened to make the most sense. I want to know if I may be missing certain nutrients and need to be on a certain type of diet for a short period of time like you talk about and then change to something else for my body type. I also know that following healthy diet is for life. I am 62, have a good amount of energy, work part time out of the house and have a small home business). My last blood tests came back normal, including thyroid though slightly low in vitamin D. I am not on any medication. The detox sounds amazing and if you think I should start with that first, I will. There are just so many out there that claim to be the best. I want good health naturally and I don’t want to put gmo’s, non organic, synthetic things into my body. I can save for some of the test you talk about. I honestly wish I could do it all at once. Please advise me as I want to get started asap! Thank you for your time and all you do to help others. Sincerely, Cynthia

 

Karin: Hi Dr Cabral, I have a question for you regarding morning sickness during pregnancy. Firstly..... why do some women get it and can it be avoided or minimized? I had it REALLY badly for 20 weeks and it scares me to even think about having another child. My mother had it too! HELP!

 

Donna: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank You for all of your help in educating your listeners to a future of optimal health! Are you familiar with the Isagenix 30 day cleansing & fat burning system? It's about $300. I am 5'6" at 128#s. I have done your 7 day detox and your 90 day Candida Protocol. What do you recommend over the Isagenix cleanse for an occasional total body cleansing? Also, do ionic foot cleanses remove toxins? I also have dry skin and I drink approx. 70 oz. of water from a counter-top Berkey. I even have to drink water through the night because my throat gets dry. I take pharmaceutical grade fish oil, vit. D, probiotics, eat a clean diet, and just started taking your protein shakes & fruit/veggie powder every morning.One other thing, from a previous question you suggested I take a Telomere test and you were concerned that I might be leaking protein into my bloodstream. It's not yet in the budget but if I were leaking protein into my bloodstream, what would you suggest I do? A 6 month ago hair analysis test showed I have a slow oxidation pattern, copper toxicity, aluminum elevated, low zinc, low potassium. I've been taking zinc liver chelate, metal flush, spanish black radish, b complex. I just got tested again; awaiting results. Thank you! Donna Dear Support Team, I sent in an online (for on Air) question yesterday explaining a hair analysis test I had that showed a copper toxicity. I added the supplements I was taking, Metal Flush, Zinc, Spanish radish. But I don't think I added in that it also showed aluminum level elevated ( i think i did on that), low zinc, low potassium. It would be awesome to be able to view our original submitted question and have say 24 hours to tweak it if needed to save you all some time from people like me ha ha! Respectfully & Thankfully, Donna C.

Nick: Hi Dr Cabral About six months ago I drastically changed my life for the better and concerning health related issues, your podcast was what helped me most. Thank you so much for that! To be frank, the content, the quantity and the versatility of your podcast is absolutely unbeatable. Please keep going! Alright, to my question: Now that I've become more health conscious, I reduce my alcohol intake to a minimum. With all the benefits, it's got its downsides, too. For example I avoid going to bars and clubs with my friends for that very reason. I don't really mind that. However, I do miss meeting new people, and especially girls, in those scenarios. Where should I go now to get to know health conscious and goal oriented people like myself? Btw my gym doesn't seem to be the best place for that. Thanks again! All the best from Switzerland Nick
