I was reading through some articles last week and came across an interesting one where both MDs and NDs teamed up to share the nutritional supplements they believed EVERYONE should be using...

Surprisingly, these doctors all agreed on which ones most people should be using on a daily basis...

Why did they so readily agree?

As a Functional Medicine Doctor or Integrative Health Practitioner, you will read thousands of labs in your practice every year, which will highlight the most common deficiencies - This makes it easy to know what 9 out of 10 people are always short on...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 1075 to discover the 5 vitamins everyone should be taking - Enjoy the show!

Do you ever feel that you should be further along in your life or progress than you currently are right now?

If so, you're not alone and there are a few proven factors that can stall people from reaching their potential and living their best life...

One of those is the opposite of the Placebo Effect and actually neutralizes much of the goal setting and progress you are trying to make...

The good news is that you can overcome this hurdle once you become fully aware of how it is sabotaging your goals and results...

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!  

Caris: Hi Dr Carbral, Firstly, thank you for so openly sharing your wealth of knowledge to all of us- I'm so grateful to be learning from you all the way from Australia.  My question is in relation to my Dad's health. He is 61 years of age and has suffered from reflux since he was in his 20's, and subsequently, has been on a the highest dose of Nexium (40 mg/day Esomeprazole) for 30+ years. For the past ~10 years he has also been having surgery every 6 months to remove between 10-20 gastric polyps at a time. His gastroenterologist has also said his stomach lining is chronically inflamed. I have been doing a lot of research on this and believe the polyps may be as a result of the Nexium suppressing his stomach acid for so many years. He has also had high cholesterol since his twenties (requiring long-term statins), has chronic back pain and recently, low iron.  His doctors have said that it is better to stay on the Nexium and deal with recurring gastric polyps, than to risk developing oesophageal cancer as a result of his reflux.  He eats a very healthy diet with lots of fruits and vegetables and rarely has junk foods, although he does drink socially a 1-2 times per week. I fear that his low stomach acid means he isn't absorbing enough nutrition from food, and I am greatly concerned for his health and the damage that chronic medication-use has caused. I am desperately seeking your advice of what direction we can take to improve his health - we will do anything!! Thank you so kindly in advance.  Caris 

Lauren: Hi Dr. Cabral. Thank you for everything you do! I have listened to all podcasts back to episode 800.  I am 5'3 and 163 pounds. I have always struggled to get back down to where I think I should be at 135 in a balanced approach. About 5 years ago, I trained for a bodybuilding competition, and since then have felt like no matter what I do, I can't lose weight.  Last year, I worked with a local FM doctor, and was able to finally feel like I was making progress. The problem is he had me play around with intermittent fasting. At that point, I stayed at around 155, and felt like my health was finally in my control. Then I tried taking fasting to the next level. I fasted until lunchtime everyday for the past three months. I have listened to your thoughts on this, and stopped. But now what do I do? I bought your thyroid support and now only fast 12 hours daily (8pm-8am), and I do your daily protocol (greens and daily nutritional shake) but I still feel so stuck. I feel like my body just wants to hold on to all the fat. I keep telling myself it is not broken, It is doing what its natural response is to going without food. But how do I get out of this cycle? Logically I feel like I need to eat more often so my body knows it has food, but that goes against what I have been learning about space between meals. 

Valeria: Hi dr.cabral!  So iv had epilepsy (complex partial) for 14 years now (if ur hearing this in 2019 it's 15 years) so since I was 7. After listening to a lot of ayervedic and balance dosha podcasts iv grown curious as to trying ayervedic medicine to rid my seizures for good without undergoing risky surgery which would impact 20% of my verbal memory. It'd be great for you to give me advice as to what I should do. Thanks 

Paul: Hello, My name is Paul and I’m an 18 year old male. Lately I’ve struggled with acne, primarily Perioral Dermatitis, and took an antibiotic to cure it. It worked very well but now I’m worried and believe I have Leaky Gut. I’ve read and listened to many podcasts and hear bone broth is great for curing this. I also have had you and your team suggest an organic acids test and food sensitivity but I cannot afford those right now. Do you suggest I try bone broth and if so, how often should I consume it. Also, any other suggestions?  Thanks,  Paul  

Ryan: Hi Dr. Cabral, I discovered you through listening to Ben Pak and MindPump and love your podcast as well. I have noticed two itchy bumps on two different spots on my scalp. I thought they were pimples at first but the just wouldn't go away. I went to see my doctor and he prescribed me an antifungal topical cream to put on and then a special shampoo. I found all they did was suppress the bumps and they would just move to a different spot on my scalp. My haircut barber said it might be from not washing my hats regularly and that it might be ringworm on my scalp. He said I need to ask for antifungal pills to kill the infections not just topical creams or shampoos. Can you please give me any recommendations that will help me fix this and not just give me temporary relief or suppressants? Are antifungal pills going to give me long term complications? Are more natural solutions that I've seen online like garlic, tumeric, coconut oil, or aloe vera just going to suppress or give temporary relief, not actually fix the issue? Thank you very much! - Ryan

Lisa: I am 39 years old and have two children, but over the last 3 years, I've had two miscarriages at 10 weeks. I am currently doing the seed cycling and have seen good results so far. What tests do you suggest starting with in order to figure out what's happening? I can't afford all the tests at this point, so where should I start? 

Jane: Hi there, I was just wanting to enquire as to how to get your Detox shipped to New Zealand! Kindest regards, Jane

Thank you for tuning into this weekend’s Cabral HouseCalls and be sure to check back tomorrow for our Mindset & Motivation Monday show to get your week started off right!

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: 

Nancy: Not sure how to join your facebook page;I believe I have developed food sensitivity and IBS or colitis after taking antibiotics a couple of times a year for a variety of problems. I think this summer put me over the edge with 2 rounds of antibiotics, most recently Augmentin. My elimination has not been the same since. I also developed swelling of the lips after going vegan and think I can say it is from a peanut butter powder / peanuts I was using. I have never had these problems like this before-my rainbarrel is definitely full.I am not certain where to begin, but I know my digestive system is Way Way off. Was also diagnosed last year on colonoscopy with diverticula for the first time ever. I was quite surprised about that. I am 64 and have always watched my diet.Do I need to start with the gut rebuilding products? I have been listening to your podcasts. I need a little guidance on where to start here and what products to get. Thanks. Nancy

Isaac: Hi I have IBS maybe SIBO and also some anxiety/nervous system type of issues I want to get tested for. Im in the health field and dont feel like I need a coach or someone to meet with on a regular basis. Im wondering if its a good option to just get a test for each of these things and then I saw they come with a 30 min coaching session. Would this provide me with supplement/diet recommendations based on the tests? Would this be a good route if I not wanting the coaching on a regular basis?

Kristy: Hello, I was just wondering if you ship to New Zealand at all? Many thanks!

Tijana: Hi Stephen Cabral's support team!I am 19 years old and I am suffering from hypothalamic amenorrhea. I have not had a regular period in around 3 years. I have maybe had 1-3 over the 3 years but for the past year I have not had a single one. I am aware that I am suppose to exercise less and eat more in order to get my period back as well as reduce stress (mental and physical). Which is very hard for me as I love going to the gym and pushing myself. I have not been able to lose any weight even though I am exercising lots and eating a relatively healthy lower calorie diet. I am at the heaviest I've ever been in my life weighing 145lbs and I am 5 foot 7. I also have extreme cellulite. I have a decent amount of muscle on me which makes me question why I have so much cellulite (never suffered from cellulite before). One last thing to mention is I am extremely constipated, I never ever have regular bowel movements, maybe 2 times a week if I am lucky. I have been following your team for a while now and just wondering what is the best way to go about my situation. Please help. I live in Canada and I am able to run any blood test for free. Am I able to send your team my blood test results?Thanks,Tijana

Josh: Hi Stephen,I have recently discovered your Podcast on iTunes and find it really interesting and insightful, I love it. Your listener questions are great and have prompted my email. I’m hoping you can give me some advice, particularly in relation to my digestive gut health and cystic acne. Brief background about me; I’m a 26 year old male, who lives an active lifestyle – I play Rugby League and resistance train 5 trains a week. My diet is ‘clean’ and balanced. I work as an Architect and as a result, I’m sedentary most of the day - 7.30am until 6pm. Then, I will go the gym after work and rugby train 2x a week, after the gym. Onto my issues, trying to be brief, I appreciate your time is valuable; - I started getting cystic acne roughly around the age of 15 years old. - I went to my local General Practitioner at the time, who put me on a repeat course of antibiotics Lymecycline 408mg. At the time, the antibiotics worked periodically and provided some relief.- Now I believe this is part of my current problem… I still take these antibiotics (although, I have started a regime to slowly come off of them, as I describe below – I’m scared to come off of them in one hit, due to the amount of time I’ve been taking them). - Over the years, my cystic acne has been terrible, then good, then back to terrible. I have visited my GP on numerous occasions, who have either switched the antibiotics I have been taking or provided a topical treatment, as well as, the oral antibiotic. - Again, this has worked on and off for many years. But never actually completely stopped the cystic acne. - After many hours of research over the years, I’m now aware that the antibiotic’s I have been taking are more of a prevention than a cure; and have likely been making my general health worse! (I did broach this with my GP, however they dismissed it). - I battled with the above regime for years and years. Getting huge cystic acne spots, having a period of no acne, then the acne resurfacing. - For at least 6-8 years to present day, I have tried to exclude dairy and bread as practicable as possible; doing this seemingly had little or no effect, as the cystic acne hasn’t budged. Bringing us back to 2018; - Around March 2018, my friends and I booked a summer holiday, I found this as an opportunity to get in to great shape; I was in the best shape of my life (my physique has always been relatively good, but I have never pushed myself and tried to get low body fat). - From March to June, my diet was very ‘clean’ contained lots of vegetables and few carbohydrates. - During the same period, the supplements I were taking consisted of the following – Zinc, Magnesium, 2 tbsp’s of ACV per day, Calcium, Vitamin A, Vitamin D3, Burdock Root and Probiotics. - I found over that time period that my cystic acne flare ups, were very rare. Any spots I did get where minimal, I certainly wouldn’t call them cystic – more small white heads. - I felt great, I got into the best shape of my life and finally after 10+ years my acne was seemingly going. My confidence was at an all-time high and I was loving my life. - I put my reduction of cystic acne down to my diet, active lifestyle and supplementation routine. Note; I was still taking the prescribed antibiotics during this period. Late July to early October 2018; - During a rugby match in July I suffered a complete tear of my distal bicep tendon, requiring surgery. - I had surgery on the 6th August, going under general anaesthetic. - As a result of my surgery, my activity levels reduced dramatically – walking was the only form of activity, were I would walk up to 20,000 steps a day. - My diet was largely the same as the previous, however I started getting my meals made and buying them from a company. - The only differences between my diet and supplementation between pre-surgery and post-surgery were; - Stopped taking Probiotics - Stopped taking Burdock Root - Increased carbohydrates and reduction of vegetables, eaten with my lunch time meal - However, my cystic acne was back as worse as ever and has been present ever since. - I couldn’t put my finger on why my acne was back, so I started doing lots of research, listening to Podcast’s (how I found ATP LAB!). - I come across one Podcast that suggested acne, specifically cystic acne is caused by underlying Streptococcus - SIBO overgrowth, in the gut, which can be caused by the frequent use of antibiotics! - This rang true with me, I had severe tonsillitis as a child, which resulted in me having them removed. I understand tonsillitis / strep throat is caused by group A streptococcus, the same bacteria which the Podcast stated causes cystic acne. - Perhaps, I never fully treated / removed the by group A streptococcus bacteria as a child, which results in my cystic acne; my diet / supplement change post-surgery and the reduction in vegetables, increased carbohydrates and no probiotics allowed the overgrowth of this bacteria? - The overgrowth could also be attributed to the antibiotics, general anaesthetic used during the time of my surgery? - Whether the streptococcus theory is factual or not, I do believe that the bacteria in my gut, is very poor, particularly since surgery – but largely due to the 10+ years of taking antibiotics; which again, could cause my cystic acne. Present day from 10th October 2018; - Listening to your Podcast on acne and the streptococcus Podcast on acne, changed my mindset completely. As a result, I have changed my diet and supplementation routine. - I have tried my best to incorporate as many of the strep killing foods / vitamins and minerals into my diet as possible. By no coincidence, these strongly match the foods / vitamins and minerals, many experts suggest consuming to prevent cystic acne. - Present day diet from 10th October 2018, largely reflects that post-surgery. Lots of vegetables, typical day; Breakfast: 4 whole eggs, cooked with coconut oil. Lunch: 200g chicken breast Large servings of broccoli, cauliflower, red & white cabbage ‘Stir-fry’ of spinach, kale, onions, asparagus Mixed with turmeric, ginger, garlic granules. Dinner: 200 – 300g chicken breast Large servings of broccoli, cauliflower, red & white cabbage ‘Stir-fry’ of spinach, kale, onions, asparagus Mixed with turmeric, ginger, garlic granules 110g quinoa, bulgur wheat and wholegrain Hummus. Snack: Tin of tuna Half an avocado 100g pickled beetroot - Around 2,600 calories – 230 grams protein, 160 carbs and 110 fats. - Present day, daily supplementation from 10th October 2018; Calcium Magnesium plus Zinc - Solgar -Take two before bed -Take one at lunch Zinc Pilcolinate - Now Foods Zinc Picolinate 50mg-Take after tea Vitamin D - Carlson labs D3 5000mg -Take after tea Vitamin A - Now Foods, Vitamin A, 10,000 IU -Take after teaBurdock Root - Now Foods 430mg-Take two before bed-Take one at lunchDandelion Root - Now Foods 500mg-Take one before bed-Take one at lunchACV - 4 tbsps / day-Take two tbsps in morning-Take two tbsps before bedFibre - Now Foods Fiber-3-Take two tbsps with ACV on a morningFish oils - Now Foods Ultra Omega 3 Fish Oil-Take two with lunchProbiotics - Now Foods GR8-dophillous-Take two at soon as get to work, 2 hours post breakfast, don’t eat for 2 hours afterwards-Take one mid-afternoon, 2 hours post lunch, don’t eat for 2 hours afterwards Multi vitamin - Nature's Way, Alive! Max3 Daily-Take three with lunch-Garlic – Raw-Swallow two whole cloves (crushed), before bed- As you can see, my diet is very clean (quite boring) and many of the foods contribute to strong gut health? I still to avoid dairy and bread – maybe it doesn’t help with my acne and may help my gut health? - However, since starting the above regime, my flatulence and bloating has been overwhelming and without wanting to provide too much detail, it smells! But my stool is of a healthy consistency, due to my high fibre intake. But, I cannot understand why I have so much flatulence. My overall health is good. I rarely get any illness or any other issues, only cystic acne! - Side note; I’m more than happy to sit this one out and wait for the flatulence to stop / reduce, if it will. Continuing my present day regime. - As noted at the start, I have also began a regime to stop taking the antibiotics. I’m scared to come off of them in one hit, due to the amount of time I’ve been taking them. - Reduction regime; Take one acne tablet every four days then have a day off, for a month. Take one tablet every three days then have a day off, for a month. Take one tablet every two days then have a day off, for a month. Take one tablet every other day, for a month. Take one tablet every three days; tablet, day off, day off, tablet..., for a month. Take one tablet every four days, for a month. Take one tablet every 5 days, for a month. Stop taking acne tablets. My theory as a whole; - Taking antibiotics for most of my life has resulted in me having poor gut health, maybe group A strep / candida / leaky gut / H pylori?? This has a direct cause to cystic acne causing bacteria. - Increased carbohydrate, reduced vegetable consumption during my lunch time meal and stopping taking probiotics (all post-surgery), as helped bad gut bacteria thrive and increase my cystic acne. - A moderate carbohydrate diet results in acne for myself – moderate to high GI. A recent food intake and resultant cystic acne, may help prove this theory – - I had plain Quaker oats, instant oats two nights in a row before bed (Thursday and Friday), then the Saturday I got one of the worst cystic acne spots I have ever had. When I look back through my diet on MyFitnessPal and correlate to my acne flare ups, there seems to be a strong correlation, particularly post-surgery. - As a complete side note, a couple of points; - For a 26 year old male, my libido is very low. I rarely wake up with ‘morning wood’ etc and random erections are very infrequent. I discussed this with my GP and I had a blood test to test my testosterone levels. The GP stated they would inform me of my results, only if, the results showed anything irregular. They did not contact me. It has been like this for a couple of years. I couldn’t certain how long. - When I drink alcohol and go on a night out, my mouth can stay dry and ‘claggy’ with white salvia for up to 3 days afterwards, I appreciate alcohol dehydrates you but I don’t think it is normal at all. Especially when, I can drink up to 5 / 6 litres of water a day. Link to poor gut health? Questions; - Is my current regime, feeding the bad gut bacteria, hence my flatulence? From my research I’ve heard that introducing cruciferous vegetables and probiotics at the start of a regime to kill bad bacteria is the wrong approach? - Or is the flatulence a result of a change in diet and killing of bad gut bacteria? - Can I stop taking the antibiotics completely immediately? Or is my reduction regime sensible? - Does bad gut health / group A strep infection have any link to low libido? -Lastly, does my theory and current diet regime seem appropriate to make my gut health better and finally , after 10+ years stop my cystic acne? I really hope you can help me and provide some advice. My confidence is at an all-time low, I have spent thousands on different skin care products over the years to try treat my cystic acne, I finally believe I could be on the right track, by trying to increase the amount of good bacteria in my gut and removing the antibiotic use, I just don’t understand the flatulence. I did well at trying to keep this brief. Apologises. I look forward to hearing from you. Many thanks Josh 

Katie: Hi Dr Cabral I am currently one of your wellness clinic patients and active listeners / readers. LOVE YOUR WORK! My question is what is your thoughts on the equalation diet? It claims you can eat whatever you want and be healthy and lose weight? It gets some great results which I struggle to understand given I strongly believe certain foods are not good for you eg. dairy, sugar, processed foods, which all feature on this diet. Really interested to hear your thoughts! 

Chris: Hi, Do you provide on-line training? I am in Austalia and am looking to change carreer into the health and wellness area and have a great interest in a lot of the information that Dr Cabral provides. I'd really like to learn more so that I could use it in a procatice setting. Thanks, Chris

Jamie: Hi there, just finished week one of the CBO protocol. Bloating and constipation seems to be worsening. I’ve upped vitamin c and magnesium (calm), drink a ton of water, plenty of body movement daily etc. I’m doing the healthy fats too. What do you recommend at this point? I’d already planned on the intestinal cleanse at the midway point but should I stop CBO and do it now or try to hang in there until week 6? I’m doing the nutritional support powder every morning with the blueberry smoothie. I added prune juice to it yesterday out of desperation. I’ve struggled with this issue for many years and have tried everything it seems, except I’ve never done an intestinal cleanse. Just looking for some direction as to what to do next. Thanks so much. Devouring the podcasts. ~Jamie

Amelia: Hi there! Not sure where to ask this question on what test to get so I am going to lay it out right here! If this is the wrong place, please let me know where I can find it on the website. I am a 23 years old, haven't had a period since 2017 before I took Plan B. For over a year now I have had gut issues...loose stools, constipation, bloating, pain, food sensitivities, etc. In August 2018 (few months ago) I went to a functional medicine doctor who did a blood test on me. Came back with low cortisol, free T3, T4, testosterone, progesterone...and high TSH and thyroid peroxidase. I am now on Adernal Cortex and Nature-throid. My doctor was not worried about my gut problems, I on the other hand am very interested in this subject and am aware of the correlation between gut issues, stress (a whole other story), and health issues. My question is...what should I be doing now? I cannot afford an OAT and Stool test at this moment but I think that is the next big step. I have eliminated so much from my diet yet I still am having gut issues. On top of that I am noticing cold sore like things around the edges of my mouth and my puffy face still seems to be here. Please help! I am a less than rich college student who wants to heal herself and is struggling to get back to my old self! Have a nice day and thank you for reading my message, I am sure you get a ton.
Amelia

Olivia: Hi there, I've been suffering with serious gut, candida, hormonal and mitochondrial issues over the past two years and am interested in working in Dr. Cabral to try to resolve these health problems. Could you kindly let me know how I should proceed? I look forward to hearing from you!

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!

You can literally make a case for the benefits of every form of exercise...

These include cardio, intervals, weight training, HIIT, Pilates, etc...

The problem is that not every form of exercise is beneficial for every person depending on where they’re at in life and what they may be struggling with right now...

This topic becomes extremely important when you are trying to overcome a high level of stress, fatigue, exhaustion, or thyroid & adrenal based issues...

There is no better time to set some amazing goals for the next 12 months than right now...

But, before you go and create those grandiose goals I want to make sure you are in the right mindset...

After all, without the proper belief system it doesn't matter how much you want to achieve your ideals, your sub-conscious mind will find a way to bring you back to your current set point...

That's why on today's #CabralConcept 1067 I want to share with you how just a few small mindset shifts can lead to massive results - 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!  

Tracy: Hi Dr. Cabral, My partner has started vaping nicotine recently. I'm concerned about this and when we've discussed it he's said that nicotine isn't bad for you, that it's the tar in cigarettes that is so damaging to one's health. I don't feel comfortable with this answer and would like your opinion on the health benefits and/or detriments of taking in nicotine by vaping. Thanks so much for all that you do. I love your podcasts and find them so helpful. Tracy

Jenine: HI! I'm feel very spiritually compelled to work with Dr. Cabral, and I am really hoping you guys can work with me! In January, 2017 at 38 years old, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer with mets to liver, lungs, and lots of lymph nodes. It was a shocking diagnosis to say the least....I only had symptoms a couple of months leading up to the diagnosis. I underwent a over a year and a half of chemotherapy and worked with a functional doctor. I juiced and became a vegan and my cancer did not show any tumors on the scans for about 6 months. The tumors showed up once again last November, and after more chemotherapy until this past spring, we decided to do a clinical trial immunotherapy in June. Although still better than chemo in terms of side effects, I began to have many autoimmune related responses....colitis being my main issue, but also temporary arthritis and secondary adrenal disease from long term use of prednisone. I've had a blockage this past summer from the colitis and was hospitalized multiple times for dehydration, and adrenal disease (the worst). After all this my latest scan showed a very small growth (width of my thumb) of another tumor in my liver. So now I was taken off the trial. There are other trials and an oral chemo that I will have to look into, but right now I am still suffering from colitis and adrenal disease so until I am off the prednisone, I cannot do treatment....I also need to heal so it's ok! I tried to wean off prednisone from 60mg to 40mg last week and was sick with diarrhea and stomach pain for 2 days. It has resolved itself since as I went back on 60mg for the last week. This morning I tried to wean again, and took 50mg, I will do that for 3 days and see if I can tolerate. My main objective is to support my body as naturally as possible as I am going through this. I also need a better way to support my body suffering with cancer of course and these autoimmune issues I'm getting! I am no longer a vegan as with colitis it was not possible to eat so plant based with the roughage.....I needed the protein as well. I do try to eat as healthy as possible, and do not eat red meat. I eat fish once a week and eggs 3-4 times a week. I eat a lot of rice and cooked vegetables, smoothies, etc. I have been indulging more than usual because of the state of my colitis and how awful I've been feeling, but I really need to be 100% on track again. I've looked into Ayurveda a few times, and have even done a 3 day cleanse with mung dal, but it's a little more complicated than I would like right now with all I am going through. The practitioner I went to wasn't great, and I don't think she was confident enough to help me with Ayurveda. I need some specific testing done, and a streamlined Ayurvedic approach to what I am going through right now, and I'm hoping you guys can help with that. I would love to speak and see Dr. Cabral. I know he has a waiting list, but I will get on if I need to. Or is there another way? I live in Northern, NJ so I can go to Boston. I am willing to do anything and believe the body can heal. Can you help me?

Kristina: Dear Dr. Cabral, I have always been a health and fitness enthusiast so dealing with a sudden medical issue was a shock to me. I found out I was pregnant at 3 weeks and we were over the moon with excitement. At 7 weeks I started bleeding and it was dismissed as a miscarriage. After pressing several doctors for an ultrasound finally one agreed. They discovered a 3.1cm mass in my right fallopian tube - it was an ectopic pregnancy. We were devastated, but given the option to treat with Methotrexate injections or surgery. I chose Methotrexate, which has been disturbing to say the least just thinking of all the chemicals that are now in my body. I am thankful my tube did not rupture and that I am still alive. Methotrexate strips your body of all folate and can also be damaging to the liver. Folate will reduce the drugs effectiveness so I am on a zero folate diet until my pregnancy levels reach zero. We were told we would need to wait 3 months to repair my body and create a safe place for pregnancy. My question to you is what would you recommend would be the most effective way to cleanse my liver of these toxins and replenish my body with nutrients. Also in what order? (i.e. replenish with nutrients/folate rich foods first then do the cleanse toward the end of our 3 month wait?) Thank you Dr. Cabral!

Colin: Stephen, I wasn't sure if this was the best avenue to ask you a question, but I figured I'd give it a shot. I was totally blown away by your two hour video with MindPump TV a few weeks ago on YouTube. The things it made me think of which I never have before were a huge eye opener. I really appreciate your approach. My question is this: I have read CBD reduces inflammation. Is this the same type of inflammation that a hard weight training workout induces? The kind that is necessary for muscle growth? Asking because I'm wondering if it would be a negative to use CBD, like taking NSAIDs which hinder the recovery processes from working. Is this logical? I just started using relatively low doses to assist me In getting sleep back on track, but Id hate to be negating all the effort of a hard days work in the gym. Appreciate you taking the time to read this if you can! Thanks so much -Colin

Sonja: My name is Sonja, I'm 33 years old and almost three years ago I was diagnosed with epilepsy. After taking five different anti epileptic drugs during these years and experiencing bad side effects, I'm finally almost completely drug free and take around 100mg CBD daily. The catamenial seizures however remained. After testing my hormones, I knew it was due to low progesterone. I'm supplementing with bio identical progesterone cream and am seizure free since. But all the medication left my hormones unbalanced and I'm feeling not well despite all the natural remedies, herbs and supplements. I'm getting better, anxiety and insomnia are almost gone and so is the hormonal acne. But my T3 is low, I tested my vitamin D and it was 12.56 despite taking 2000IU daily.
Now my doctor recommends strongly to run the big 5 lab tests.
But before investing, I'd love to know the correct order. Should I stop some supplements before? (I take many; especially for hormone balance) Should I detox before? I hope it's ok to ask these questions. Kind regards, Sonja

Kristina: Hi Dr. Cabral. You do not recommend a detox while breastfeeding which I understand. What are some ancient traditions that you can share regarding mother's health during a long term breastfeeding relationship, 2 years and beyond? In many ancient cultures and currently in many cultures around the world, nursing is common for many years. Between long term breastfeeding and multiple pregnancies that resulted in a larger family (we have four beautiful children), I have struggled to remain in robust health. What suggestions could you share for overcoming deficiencies and regaining energy and vitality in this situation? Is there anything special to share from your international studies? Thank you!

Lorraine: I am suddenly/ but not a suddenly having serious stomach issues. I have for a long time had discomfort after eating I think- cooked onions mushrooms Brussels sprouts, whey protein. In the last 6 weeks I decided to eat healthy- which includes now eating all that plus... cut sugar and a lot of salt, no eating out. And my gut is brutal! For me and everyone I live with- extreme gas and hard stuck out stomach and just feel bad! I think eating healthy is making me sick. Please help!! Lorraine

Thank you for tuning into this weekend’s Cabral HouseCalls and be sure to check back tomorrow for our Mindset & Motivation Monday show to get your week started off right!

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: 

Rachel: I ordered your organic acids test. A western dr diagnosed me with SIBO without doing any tests and prescribed me xifaxan for 3 months. My question is, if i do the organic acids test now after being on xifaxan for 1 month, will results be a bad reflection ? Do i have to wait to take the organic acids test?

Elaine: Hi, I recently had a Organic Acids Test done and was wondering if I sent you the results could you interpret it for me and what this would cost? Kind Regards, Elaine

Tori: What are the benefits of salt caves? What should you look for when deciding between salt caves or rooms? Is there research that supports halotherapy (dry salt therapy) as a treatment for the conditions/ailments the salt caves claim? E.g., COPD, asthma, allergies, skin conditions like eczema and acne?

Linda: In June I started itching first my head and earlobes it seem to go away and then it started on my hands and feet . The strange thing is that it would be gone for almost sometimes 2 to 3 weeks and then come back . Then I broke out in hives . My doctor suggested Sarna and histamine and Prednisones . The hives would come and go right now they seem to be gone but my hands, feet and head are itching again any suggestions . I must say the sarna has saved my craziness of the itching it does help some what.

Anthony: I'd like to get more information on getting test(s) to discover the root of my health issues. How do I get started

Alex: You were on the Mindpump podcast and great info. I wanted to see if you could send me some additional tips on Psoriasis and the website to remove metal from teeth. Thanks. again, great show.

Elizabeth: Hey Dr Cabral, it doesn't seem as if you have spoken about chicory root before. I was wondering if it's a good alternative to those who drink coffee? Given the prebiotic (inulin) factor presumably it may not do well with some people? I know you've mentioned inulin before on your show but wondered your thoughts on drinking chicory root? Thanks for all and all the best.

Tiffany: You have said on your podcasts that you don't have to wait the 6 weeks that your emails are behind to find out which tests you would recommend taking but I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask you the questions? It is about my daughter. She is 5 years old. We recently moved from US to Costa Rica, it's been around 6 weeks. Previously her diet has been great, not a picker eater. Everyone is impressed at how she will eat whole foods, salads and even whole fish (eyeballs and all!) along with Cole's Portuguese sardines... she loves them. We avoid over gluten-ing ourselves as well as avoid white sugar, and sugar in general (we use stevia). I always buy organic and even soak any nuts and grains that we will be consuming. We don't have access to the same food here and recently, everytime she eats (very little at that) she claims her belly hurts. She did recently battle with an inner ear infection and I have been excluding eggs and dairy from her diet for the past 2 weeks. She started at a new school and the bathroom is "dirty" and "the door doesn't close" so she has been struggling with holding "it" until she absolutely can't anymore and then having an accident. Luckily, her daily poops are around 4pm so we are home for them. My thoughts about what could be wrong are all over the place! Parasites, bladder infection, SIBO?!? We are returning to the states in 2 weeks so I can order a test and send it in but I'm not positive what test I should order. Hopefully this can get answered before our trip back as I don't think we will be back in the state for almost 1 year. Thank You in advance for your time!

Valerie: Hello Dr. Cabral! First off, thank you for the Rain Barrel Effect. Really enjoyed the book. It was packed full of easy to read information. I've been telling everyone I can about it. I'm 57 years old and since my 30's I've not followed a very good diet and drank a lot of wine (1.75L in one week period) and excess coffee (700 mg/day) In March (2018) I went on a Whole Foods, Plant-Based Diet, I gave up drinking, zero coffee and work out, as per your protocol. I suffer from Adrenal Fatigue. I'm working with a FMD and waiting for my results from my Organic Acids Test and a stool test. My Mother had Breast Cancer at 54 (she's now 91) and my Sister has been recently diagnosed (age 60). My Sister is a heavy drinker and a junk food Vegan (a bag of chips for dinner). I was tested several years ago, for the BRACA1 and tested very low. My question is, with my years of drinking and poor lifestyle, does this increase my chances of developing dis-ease later in my life? Have I done to much damage over the years? Thank you and I always look forward to your Podcasts.

Vivienne: Hi there, My name is Viv, I currently have multiple food sensitivities, which include histamine and salicylates and amines (these are recent in the past year). I've done multiple hair tests over the years and hormone blood tests, I'm on DHEA as this hormone is very low after being in birth control for 20 years (and coming off 3 years ago). I don't metabolise copper well and have low levels of copper/estrogen. I'm struggling mainly with brain fog and fatigue and also generally still unsure of what to eat and when (eating around 25 foods on rotation following the failsafe diet approach). What I want: Someone to help guide me out of a state of intolerance (I've been told many times I'm stuck with them but I don't buy into that) Someone to help guide me on what food to eat and when so that I have energy to get through the day (without resorting to using chocolate and modafinil which is the only way I feel I can function). Someone to help me heal my gut when most of the traditional supplements and healing methods are off limits because I can't tolerate them. Can you help and how would we get things started? I've sent a few messages before but no reply so I'm hoping you get this and can back in contact! Thanks, Viv

John: Dear Dr. Cabral, I’ve been diagnosed with BPH and am getting up 3-4 times a night. I don't believe I’ve slept more than 4 hours straight in 3 years. I’m 57 years old and the doctors all say it’s a normal part of aging which I wholeheartedly disagree with. My wife and I eat clean, take supplements and workout 4-5 times a week (crossfit) and are in good health. What is your recommendation for shrinking the prostate. There’s got to be something that causes this condition. God Bless
