When I first learned about the "Law of Attraction" I thought it was a lot of "hocus pocus..."

But then I started to read more about it and how this type of setting of intentions had been practiced for thousands of years and even spoken about in every major religion...

However, I didn't find it to work very well in my life until I discovered some of the intricacies that aren't talked about in mainstream writing... Everything changed when I incorporated a couple of key principles.

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 1004 of why you must be careful of how you set your intentions - 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!

Eliana: Hello, I would first like to say that I absolutely love your Podcasts and everything you have taught me thus far! I am a 21 year old personal trainer who is extremely interested in natural health and this podcast has changed my world! I have been struggling with a hiatal hernia for years. It feels like something is pressed up against my diaphragm or sometimes my left rib cage (it switches between those 2 places so sometimes I wonder if my diaphragm is out rather than it being a hiatal hernia). I have received chiropractic treatment for this and while the manual adjustment of pushing it back into place does help, it does not last. My mom, grandma, and twin sister also struggle with this. I had lymes disease 3-4 years ago (so did mom and sister) and was treated with a combination of homeopathy, Chinese herbs and glandulars by a lymes specialist in Maine. Also had H pylori and Epstein bar and was treated for those coinfections as well. Since then I feel great, had a feeling of relapse a year ago and cut out all food sensitivities. I feel great again but my hiatal hernia comes and goes in long phases. It is back now and I have not noticed any pattern to when it comes and goes. It causes me extreme stress and anxiety, especially at night. Also causes bloat. I have eaten extremely healthy (organic Whole Foods) since I was born thanks to my parents, and I pay attention to deficiencies, eat 3 meals a day, have a smoothie in the morning, fast for 12-13 hours, etc. I also exercise 5 days a week (lifting, cardio, mobility work, etc) and avoid crunching movements due to the hernia. I take zinc, B12, D3, and am a pescatarian/gluten, dairy, corn free, no processed foods, no antibiotics, don’t eat late at night, don’t overeat, eat tons of veggies and fruit. Please let me know what you know and suggest regarding hiatal hernias. Thank you so much!

Christie: Good morning. Sorry for the long post but I’m hoping you can help. My mom started with diverticulosis in 2007 and in 2012 it became “moderate” diverticulitis. It got continually worse and then in 2017 she had a bowel resection done. They removed a foot of her colon. Ever since then she has dealt with horrible gas and constipation. She just had endoscopy done a few weeks ago because she felt like things weren’t passing through and the doctor said her stomach was red and inflamed but she does not have h. pylori. She also has Gastroparesis. The doctor then put her on Zantac two times a day for 4 weeks and Miralax at night. She also takes the Beachbody digestive boost. Her doctor has also mentioned putting her on Linzess. She can’t afford testing because my parents are retired and on a limited income so I’m wondering if you think doing a certain protocol would help her without testing first. Can you recommend anything? I would appreciate any suggestions. I’m not happy with how things are going for her and really want to see her healthy again. 

Laura: Hi I have a couple of questions. I have only been listening for around a month so I may have just missed this. I haven’t heard dr Cabral talk much about beans and legumes, is the a reason why hey aren’t recommended or not at the top of the list! I’m primarily veggie and eat a lot of veg, however I do like to add lentils, beans or chickpeas to my food to add in protein and other nutrients! I was just interested to find out what your take is on this. Also, I’m going to start a naturopath nutritional therapy course in the UK next month so maybe I will find all this out for myself. However I have taken nutritional supplements before and I use to really be bought into juicing detoxing. However I have read various things that suggests that a supplements can actually shorten your life and aren’t as good as they seem. Also taking butrioanl shakes with condensed nutrients can actually be difficult for your body to digest all at once. For example you would eat a whole meal in a few minutes, therefore how is it ok for your body to process nutritional supplement shakes in such a short amount of time! Thanks Laura

Katherine: Hi there, I'm from Windsor, Ontario, Canada and I'm wondering if there is a ND over here that you would recommend? I have benefits through my work that would cover my appointments so that's why I was wondering if Dr. Cabral would recommend someone over here? Thank you so much for your time, Katherine

Meg: Hi Stephen, Being located in Australia, I don’t have easy access to wild salmon as all Australian salmon is farmed. Therefore I wanted your advice in regards to the best salmon choices. Would you recommend consuming wild tinned salmon over fresh farmed salmon? Is tinned salmon equally as nutritious?

Renae: Hello Dr Cabral, My Mum was diagnosed with hemolytic anaemia a couple of years ago and has been taking pharmaceutical medication daily to manage this. We both believe that there must be a way of finding the root cause and getting to the bottom of it so that she can feel well and be medication free again. Other symptoms she experiences separate from the anaemia are under active thyroid, osteo arthritis, IBS, foggy brain and really bad memory loss. She is only 62. She has tried to improve on things like diet to help herself and has seen a naturopath briefly but has not seen a change in her blood levels or other symptoms. I gratefully discovered your work a few months ago and I am very hopeful that with your advice on what labs she should run and where to start that she can finally find her path to wellness again. In the meantime I have given her a copy of your book. I did write in to your team who recommended the HTMA and OAT (thank you team :)), however given this is not a common auto immune condition I just wanted to be sure if there were any other recommendations you would make. Huge gratitude for your work. Warmest regards, Renae.

Julie: Do you have any protocols to address nighttime bed wetting in children? I have read that there may be imbalances or constipation that could cause this, but my pediatrician says it’s normal for boys and he will likely outgrow the issue (6 yr old boy) I have 3 children, 2 no longer had night time issues once potty trained and did not have to be “taught” to make it through the night. Thank you for your insight. I have learned so much from your podcasts already! Julie

Brittany: What are gse Citracidal drops? (Referenced from cold sore notes on podcast, mix them with apple cider vinegar and cyanne pepper)

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: 

Chloe: Hi Dr Cabral. My question is about the increasing information about breast implant illness. I have had breast implants for nearly 6 years. I have gained weight in this time and I have been increasingly feelings less “vital”. The weight gain could be due to me changing from a very physical job to an extremely sedentary job. My question is have you seen “breast implant illness” in your practice before? I have seen a lot of people on Facebook claiming to be healed once their implants were removed and losing weight and inflammation. They show before surgery and after surgery of their face looking completely different from inflamed to healthy in just a couple of hours after surgery. Can you lab test for silicone in the body? Do you think this is a thing? Or could I just be feeling this way due to toe rainbarrel effect and it could have nothing to do with my implants at all? Thanks in advance and thank you for all the incredible work you do! 

Diana: Hello! I've had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for 22 years and I'm a bit confused by the terms you use to refer to the ailment. I always thought CFS, CFIDS, and ME were different terms that referred to the same syndrome. However, you seem to use them to refer to different levels of severity. Could you explain why and what the differentiation between them are? Thanks for answering. I love your podcast and am binging on past episodes, but getting through everything seems like a Sisyphean task. I'm not complaining, though; at least I know I'll never run out of episodes to listen to. Best, Diana

Mary: Hi there, A friend of mine has been talking about some of Dr. Cabral's recommendations and it sounds interesting. I was wondering where I could find more information on Dr. Cabral’s naturopathic recommendations? Thank you! Mary Kay

Sean: Hi, My friend just got diagnosed with gastroparesis after numerous tests and visits to the doctor. I'm wondering if you had more information that i can pass along to her that will help her. thanks!

Shantal: I did a huge battery w/ a naturopathic doctor here in SF (SIBO test and GI effects test). I came up with slightly elevated levels of methane gas, high levels of yeast, and low levels of beneficial bacteria. The doctor suggested 2 rounds of primarily homeopathic/herbal meds with 1 antibiotic. I've not taken them yet as I feel I want more direction and guidance than what was given. I've been listening to Dr. Cabral's podcast for months and am curious about working with anyone in his practice. I don't want to do those tests again (eek) but do need more direction from here onward. I went to Europe for a month(just returned last night) and did not have ANY of the inflammation that I do here in the US but my skin was irritated by either the dairy, meat, or heat. Clearly I have much I need guidance on. How do I find more about this, the process to work with someone, and if it's all virtually done (I'm in San Francisco). Thank you and be well...

Allison: Hi Stephen! I was hoping to get some information on hormone imbalance. I recently turned 30 and all of a sudden I am noticing a huge change in my skin. Very dry and itch. Especially my face and scalp. We live in the south and have lots of humidity so I feel like this isn’t just because of dry air. My periods have also recently changed. More painful cramps and it’s now 5 or 6 days instead of 4. I’m wondering if these symptoms could be a change of hormones and if I should get tested for a hormone imbalance. Do you do anything like that? Any help is much appreciated!

Julie: Can I get information about signing up for this September's health coaching certification? Also, are there appointments available with one of the coaches to help me determine my dosha body type? Thank you, I have been enjoying listening to podcasts and am learning much. Julie

Kristen: Hi Dr. Cabral, Love your podcast and all the content. I am currently reading The Rain Barrel Effect right now and love that too. I do have a question for you that I cannot seem to get to the bottom of. I currently live in San Francisco, CA but I am originally from Portland, OR. Every single time I go home to Portland (5-6 times a year), the weirdest thing happens. I get SO extremely tired, fatigued, major brain fog and sometimes anxiety. It baffles me because when I go home I eat pretty much the same way I would when I am in SF, drink lots of water, drink the same amount of coffee, work out the same etc. I do get more sleep when I go to Portland (catch up on sleep) so I may be getting 9-10 hours instead of 6-8, but usually when I am in SF I'll catch up on sleep at least one night on the weekend as well and I don't feel this way. It feels as if there is literally something in the water that's making me feel this way (I did some research - SF has fluoride in the water while Portland does not so not sure if that would make a difference at all?!?) Any suggestions or thoughts? Thank you! Kristen

Katherine: Hi Dr. Stephen, Thank you for all you do and the wealth of knowledge you produce in your podcasts! I have a friend who has super sensitive skin. She gets red marks wherever you touch her and it will last a while (over 10 mins). Is this a lack of calcium? What can she do? 

Thank you for tuning into today's Cabral HouseCall and be sure to check back tomorrow where we answer more of our community’s questions!

It's been a busy week and I hope you're doing well, looking forward to the weekend, and ready for this week's #FridayReview!

Today on the show I'll be talking about our 2nd opening of the @IHP_Certification (Integrative Health Practitioners), as well as our ability to now ship labs & products to 15 countries world-wide (all happening on Monday)!

Next, up I have a fun new technology review on how to "light up" your house based on whether or not you are looking to increase energy in the morning or calm things down at night...

Plus, I'll be sharing my family's new pick for gluten-free oats to replace our former favorite that was shown to contain glyphosate...

And last, but certainly never least, I want to highlight a Scandinavian herb known for its ability to fight fatigue, stress, and anxiety as well as any adaptogen out there...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 1001 for all the details - Enjoy the show!
