One of the many reasons why intuitive eating does not work until you become completely healthy (in mind & body) is due to the fact that food cravings are not always what they seem…

Often times cravings can actually stem from certain metabolic imbalances or nutritional deficiencies…

However, these cravings can also come from gut microbiome imbalances or certain dietary manipulations that are quite common practice right now…

On today’s #CabralConcept 1216 I want to share with you why you still have food cravings and how we can go about rebalancing your body to then better understand and listen to what it needs - 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!   

Anonymous: Hi Doc, First thing I’d like to do is thank you. Great podcast, you’re helping a lot of people with all the information shared. Keep it up. I have a mold question in regards to genetics; The most popular mold physician says testing for specific HLA-DR genes is necessary to determine if the body is creating the antibodies to go after the molds in the body. I have what he calls the “dreaded gene” that is found in only 1% of population, meaning multiple sucestibility to mold/lyme/etc as my body apparently doesn’t create the antibodies against them. On top of this, I have a MTHFR mutation. So my question is wether this HLA-DR gene testing matters or not? Do the MTHFR/HLA-DR genetic tests all mean the same thing? There is much debate as to the credibility behind this theory so I was hoping to hear your thoughts on it. Thanks!

Jenett: Hi Dr. Cabral, My friend was diagnosed with ocular pressure due to an imbalance of eye fluid production. He as told it can lead to glaucoma and blindness. Is there a way to balance this naturally? Thank you! Jenett

Marissa: Dr. Cabral, I really appreciate you and all your time spent on sharing your years of reading and knowledge with our community. I found you by my research on Ayurveda and since finding you have listened to almost every podcast you have done. I feel like I have gotten my own "certification" in wellness by having all of this information you have shared. Thank you!! You have helped me, my friends, and my family live better. I have done a DCD, CBO protocol/finisher, heavy metal detox and use your shake, adrenal soothe, CBD, and other products daily. I am a 40-year-old vata body type and enjoy the gym. I like going in the morning (5am) and usually do it fasted. I don’t want any food, but some days I have a ½ banana for being vata (per your recommendation.) I have noticed over the years that I cannot do cardio to almost any degree without my muscles getting tight after and I used to get sleepy post the workout (approx. 2-3 hours.) I tried electrolytes during the gym, but it doesn’t help. My HTMA markers are normal. I enjoy being active, but have learned to not push it for the past 2 years, thinking that my body is too stressed. I now stick to mainly body weight exercises and no cardio, but I like getting better oxygenation with some increase in heart rate. Also, my morning temperature does not get over 97.6 degrees most days, only on the 2nd half of my cycle. My most recent Dutch hormone test showed my rising morning cortisol had been slightly low and my morning cortisol slightly high, with normal ranges the rest of the day. I test my HRV with my Oura ring and struggle to get that over the 40’s. My TSH in the past was between 5-9 and now is lowered to 2-3 with the help of Armour Thyroid at its lowest dosage. Why can’t my temperature, HRV go up? If you met me you wouldn’t think I had a low energy. I am lean and not overweight. I want to get all metabolism markers higher. Any guidance would help! 

Mrs M: Dear Dr Cabral, I have searched but found no results regarding bunions (hallux valgus.) Can you recommend a natural treatment that does not involve surgery? I did a Google search and found all kinds of splints / straps / bandages and toe separators. I would very much appreciate if you could share any ideas on how to remedy this situation. I have only just begun to experience pain, I do not have a large growth and it’s only on my one foot. The big toe only points towards my other toes slightly. My mother and grandmother had it quite badly (my mother had hers removed surgically.) I have large, wide feet (European Size 43) which makes finding comfortable, well-fitting shoes for work (office job) nearly impossible. I’m also a runner but do not yet feel much pain when running (yet?) Would very much like to avoid surgery if possible. Thank you in advance for your help and feedback, it is very much appreciated. Mrs M.

Katie: Hi Dr. Cabral, This is the second time I've written in to the Cabral concept and instead of listing symptoms, I'd like to ask you a more over-arching health question. I'm in my late 20s and have been struggling with physical and mental health issues for most of my adult life. As a young woman I made most of my mistakes early on because I was ignorant to the health care system and honestly wasn't a great advocate for myself. I allowed health professionals to diagnose and prescribe medication without questioning any of their methods. I thought doctors were altruists who cared for my well being and ultimately wanted to heal their patients. I was very wrong. I have a deep sense of distrust of doctors and although I see more healing in the natural medicine and holistic industry, I still find myself questioning whether the treatments will work. It's a different business than the traditional health care industry, but a business none the less. How do you, I, or anyone for that matter, sift through all the information out in the world today, and how do we know who to trust? Sometimes I wish life came with an instruction manual. I'm feeling defeated and would love your insight. Thanks for always spreading your knowledge and positivity.

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: 

Samantha: Hi Dr. Cabral! So happy my mom turned me on to you. I will get straight to the point! I have been getting small eczema patches on my forearms the last few winters (I am 28yo female) when never having them before. They started to show up in August of 2018, a lot sooner than I was expecting. My mom bought me a food sensitivity test (thinking there was a correlation) and low and behold I had high reactions to eggs, barley and wheat. Once I cut those out on elimination diet, my skin cleared! 30 days later I reintroduced one at a time to see reaction, and I have been dealing with the worst flare up of my life ever since (It is now March). My skin went crazy! Both my arms became covered and there were times when my skin was literally hot to the touch. I obviously cut out eggs and gluten, and eventually dairy, alcohol, nightshades, legumes and meat. My skin finally has started to calm down a bit. I took the stool test and was positive for E. Coli, Blastocystis Hominis, and some yeast (NG of candida, though). Starting parasite cleanse soon and also just purchased OAT to get more answers. My question is, is there a correlation between parasites/E. Coli and food sensitivites? Is it possible to eventually reverse these sensitivities? My diet is so restricted right now and losing too much weight, but it is the only way to keep my skin from being on fire and extremely itchy. Thank you for all of your guidance and the positivity you spread daily! I know this will be a while before it answered. I hope it can help someone else out there as well. Thank you! -Sammy

Samantha: Hi! My name is Samantha and I love your approach on treating disease and other common health issues. For about a month now, I have been experiencing immense pain in my back, arms, and legs. I am 19 years old and I have been lifting weights for about three years. Lately, whenever I weight lift I get light headed, shaky, my feet get cold, and chest pain. It it is like my entire body has been drained of energy when I barely started my workout. I have went to many conventional doctors and they gave me diagnosis such as GERD, but I have had no improvement. I would love to hear your opinion and hopefully get some insight on what is wrong with me and how I can treat it, holistically. I eat a very balanced diet and I am always active, so I would really appreciate your help. Thank you!

Ella: Hi Dr Cabral. I've recently come across your podcast through Melissa Ambrosini and I'm obsessed. Just wanted to say thank you for all your free information. My concern is this: I'm 22 years old and started getting grey hairs at 20/21. It's rapidly progressing and I find more and more every day. I've started to dye my hair because I am so self-conscious of going grey so young. Everyone tells me it's genetic but my intuition tells me something deeper is going on. The last 2 years of my degree was when this happened and I was stressed out of my mind (14 hour study days, no breaks, bad sleeping patterns, etc). I was also vegan for 6 years and am a vata body type (i've been transitioning out of this now after concerns that my overall health is depleting). I dont eat gluten but am always gassy or bloated after meals and sometimes feel so full and gross i dont want to eat. Can you please help me see if this is a mineral deficiency or if it's hormonally based? Which tests should I run? Thanks so much.

Hannah: Hello hello! I was curious to know your opinion on spore-based versus non-spore based probiotics. So thankful for all you do!

Stephanie: Hi Dr Cabral ... cannot thank you enough for all that you do! Your energy and enthusiasm is infectious. i tell just about everyone I know about you and your podcasts! I’m Writing a question on behalf of a friend who was diagnosed with Charcot Marie Tooth disorder - her feet go numb and sometimes her legs. The doctors say it’s hereditary and there is no other insight provided - how, why, what exactly is going on. Have you ever encountered this disorder? Are there tests you would recommend to find out if there is something internal going on that could be fixed that would also help this? Thank you for any insight!

Darrell: Hey Dr Cabral. I am a regular voluntary blood donor but recently my blood count has been hovering around 13.5 which the nurse say is lower than normal for males. I am 34, weigh around 153, 5'6 height, vata pitta body type, really ripped, fit, no known issues. Is there anything that can be causing the low count, is it a cause for concern. Is there any product, supplement, herb or lifestyle recommendation I can take to boost the count. Thank you, keep up great work
