I think in the health & fitness industry we sometimes make too big a deal about recommending people lose weight to achieve a certain aesthetic...

It's certainly a big goal for many people (especially earlier in life), but it misses a much larger picture of a person's overall health & well-being...

The fact of the matter is that every point your BMI (and body fat %) goes up beyond the normal range can ultimately affect your brain & body's capacity to stave off disease later in life...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 1552 to find out how having a higher body weight ages your brain 10 years faster - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

Whether you're following a Keto, Paleo, Carnivore, Primal, or any other diet, the Mediterranean food choices should still be making up much of what you consume...

The data is just so strong on the benefits of this style of a diet that it is hard to ignore or simply push aside with a few recent studies promoting other diet choices...

This is why on today's #CabralConcept #1551 I wanted to share with you a day in the life of my Mediterranean diet and how it's actually very easy to stick to - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

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!   

Simon: *Hi and thanks again Dr Cabral! I am wondering how to best avoid contracting a gut parasite/virus/bacteria whilst travelling. I have a history of IBS-D and parasite infections (multiple blasto infections, giardia) and will have just finished a parasite, intestinal, CBO and finisher protocols before travelling to Bali in June. I am desperate not to reverse all my hard work and healing, and also to stop my family catching something. What are all the things I should take before/during/after my trip to protect my gut and avoid contracting something? I am willing to go the extra mile and would love a detailed protocol. Ayubowan! -Simon

Kirsty: Hi Stephen, thank you for everything, you a wealth of knowledge and I continually look to your podcasts for advice! Just a question about recurring UTI's - I've had success with your uTI protocol in the past and manged to avoid antibiotic use. I don't have any digestive issues and no other symptoms. I'm repeating the OATS test to see if any changes from last year. Can UTI's recur though because of biofilm in your bladder? I'm just wondering if so, what's the best way to remove these? Would this show up in the OATs? Much thanks. :)

Erin: I know you have had both your tonsils and adenoids out I believe, and while I have managed my phlegm significantly I still end up spitting up small chunky bits of phlegm occasionally. They do happen more often in the morning, and less chronic. I am a Level 2 IHP, and have done all your protocols, and they have helped tremendously especially my gut and skin issues which is why I did your IHP course. I wonder if because I don't have my tonsils or adenoids that this is just how my body is going take care of it. I don't eat the major foods that cause phlegm, especially the common food sensitivity or allergen foods especially dairy, gluten, peanuts, and mindful of the other ones like soy when I need to be flexible for travel or going out with friends. What is your professional opinion on this?

Meg: Wondering if there is a specific Podcast educating on natural ways to balance hormones after ovulation. PMDD with major depression, mental illness after ovulation until period.

Erin: Hello, love your show and thank you for all that you do! I was wondering if it's safe to take milk thistle and/or liver detoxing herbs and teas daily such as dandelion and burdock to support the liver and detoxification? Thanks!

Lori: Is the rain barrel book available by podcast at all?

Sue: Hi Dr Cabral I wrote in awhile ago about chronic hip pain and you suggested I see a Chiropractor regarding impingement in the vertebrae in my spine. Podcast 1478. She sent me for x rays, 3 Region spine/pelvis, and she will be able to fix most of it but there is degenerative change in the joints. Osteopenic and spondylitic changes . I am going to do the 21 day functional detox but is there a supplement I can take to heal the bone. Thankyou so much for suggesting I see a Chiropractor. I never would have thought to do that. Her treatments are amazing. Appreciate you. You're incredible with your knowledge Regards Sue

Isabel: Wondering if any word yet on Dr Cabral's book,The Rain Barrel Effect being available on audio format. I would love to give it as audible gifts for those friends who never seem to have time to read but they will listen as they multitask.. Please, please it's too good a book to not have it on Audible

 

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!

May 2, 2020

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: 

Missey: Hi, I'm a 43 year old mom to 6 (5 biological). My GYN said I'm in peri menopause with symptoms of weight gain, low libido, cystic acne on my chin, moodiness/emotional, depressed, high anxiety at times, difficulty staying asleep, hair thinning. My periods are regular, every 23-25 days. They start as spotting, then get really heavy. Per ultrasound, I've been diagnosed with adenomyosis, which creates painful periods. She ran my hormone levels via bloodwork and said they are : Testosterone 22.36 ng/dL, TSH 1.66 uIU/mL, Progesterone 18.9 ng/mL. I've had cortisol and testosterone tested via salvia too and those results were: Cortisol 2.7 ng/mL, Testosterone 18 pg/mL. I've recently had two episodes of severe rashes under my arms requiring oral steroids and steroid cream. Over the past few years, I will have random rashes/hives, but recently it has gotten more frequent and severe. Maybe a separate issue, I've always dealt with constipation. My chiropractor recommended Standard Process Intestinal Cleanse and I've been taking 2 pills/night for the past decade as it's the only thing that would keep me regular. I recently started Faster Way to Fat Loss with Amanda Tress and am eating better than I ever have, but my constipation is now worse even with the Intestinal Cleanse. I exercise 4-5 days a week, stay active, only drink coffee or water, eat whole foods (mostly dairy and gluten free now), and get plenty of fiber (I log my food) and yet, I'm still dealing with constipation and bloating (I look like I'm pregnant by the evening). Could this be a hormone issue and GI issue or the same issue giving me all of these symptoms? And what would you recommend I do at this point because there seems to be SO much going on. I truly feel like I'm all over the place and doctors will just say this is normal at this phase of life and keep eating healthy and exercising. I'm really at a loss. Any help would be very appreciated.Missey

Aaron: What experience do you have with correcting vision? I have worn glasses for over 30 years and have a minor astigmatism. I've been debating on LASIK, and recently came across a few people claiming they can correct vision naturally with longer lasting success. They are using a version of Bates' method of focusing on objects just beyond clarity and using slightly off prescription glasses. It sounds too good to be true, but then so does all the successes of naturopathy. What diet, supplement, exercise, etc do you recommend for improving vision? I searched podcasts for "correcting nearsightedness," "LASIK," "healing vision," and "eyes." All I found was a house call about omega 3 before LASIK, and nothing specific to naturally improving vision. I appreciate all you do, keep up the good fight!

Shikha : Hi Dr Cabral, thank you for sharing your knowledge, I have learned a lot by listening to your podcasts. I am looking for a microwave substitute. What are your views on oven toaster and portable mini ovens such as hot logic and other. Do they have any adverse effect on health? Thanks

Ann: Is there some thing that can be done to reduce body hair for men. Particularly back hair? Is there anything that can prevent excessive hair at puberty.

Kimberly: Will the Rain Barrell Effect come out in Audio form any time soon?

Pauline: Dear Dr Cabral, I have recently learned of you and your amazing work, and have already listened to many of your podcasts. They are so encouraging and helpful.1. I wondered if you are familiar with BII (Breast Implant Illness) and what your thoughts are on this. I have had implants for 17 year and only recently began to wonder and start to research if they are perhaps contributing to my now growing listen of ailments and health issues over the last few years. What I have read and discovered is terrifying to say the least. 2. I also struggled with infertility for many years, and had 10 years fertility treatment, which included 16 IVF's, plus many other fertility treatments which required the artificial stimulation of my egg production, and suppression of my own menstrual cycle monthly through daily injections. Perhaps at least 25 cycles in total. I have subsequently been blessed with two adopted sons, but wondered if these many fertility treatments could be a contributing factor to my declining health? I also went into early menopause at about 43 years old and am on HRT. I am 55 years old, in reasonably good health and shape, and follow a healthy eating lifestyle. Over the last 14 years I have developed food sensitivities / allergies, particularly to benzoates, msg and tartrazine which I cannot consume. Debilitating headaches, recurring sinus headeaches and infections, and over the last three years severe fatigue, low energy, impaired ability to concentrate or focus, inability to get a good nights sleep. This seems to be getting worse each month. I recently had blood tests for iron, Vit b12 and my thyroid which the GP tells me are all normal. I have had many antibiotics and cortisone over the years for these 'sinus infections' and headaches which I'm sure have damaged my gut too.The GP's recommendation is that I go on an SSRI, I'm not at all convinced. I would so welcome your thoughts and guidance. Thank you for sharing your own journey and wealth of knowledge with the world, you have given me hope that I too can heal and transform.

Dustin: Hi Dr. Cabral. I want to start by saying thank you for all you do. I have been a long time listener and have learned so much. My question is about water. I have heard you say and have read a lot how squeezing lemon in water and adding natural sea salt can make the water more alkaline and gives it a charge. My question is: Is the water alkaline at that point or does the body make it alkaline as it goes through our system? Secondly, what are your thoughts about "structured water"? There are devices/home filters that you can by for your home that filter the water but mimic nature through native (natural) EMFs (minerals, angles, etc.) that supposedly restructure the water as nature does and brings it back to life. Have you looked at these much? I know natural spring water is the best way to go but the closest spring to me is over 2 hours away and my worry about getting water from a natural spring in the midwest is all the runoff of pesticides that has traveled through the soil and has contaminated all the water supply. I am wondering if structured water is the answer. I would love to hear your thoughts on these two things. Thanks again!
