Adding just a couple of extra well-timed hours per day in a fasted state can allow you to burn more body fat…
 
But if that timing gets thrown off too far in either direction you may get more than you intended (and that’s not a good thing)…
 
That’s why on today’s #CabralConcept 2070 I’d like to share with you how intermittent fasting affects fat-burning hormones (for better and worse and how to maximize your results) - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

One of the biggest questions I get each week is if a certain genetic condition can be overcome?
 
You see, most people have been told due to their genetics they are simply forced to live with an array of health issues for the rest of their lives…
 
The problem is much of this isn’t true and that’s why on today’s #CabralConcept 2069 I’d like to share with you if you can change your body type or genetics - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

It’s difficult for most of us to wrap our heads around this concept:
 
The life we’re currently living is based on our most predominant thoughts, and therefore, if we want to live a different life and get different results we must change our way of thinking…
 
But how do you change your thinking?
 
That is the topic of today’s #CabralConcept 2068 where I share with you one easy way to reprogram your mind - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

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: 

Elizabeth: Hi!! Can you please explain how an imbalanced microbiome can lead to acne please? I know about food sensitivities causing inflammation and therefore skin issues. But assuming that there aren’t any food sensitivities, how can a dysbiosis lead to acne? Does it increase sebum production? Thank you so much.

Karim: Hi Doc! I'm obsessed with your podcast by the way. It's the best podcast in the world. It really is, so take a moment to appreciate that. What a wealth of knowledge you have. Oh my gosh! So, I'm trying to establish what the best time to wake up is. I'd love to wake up at 5 or 6 but I try to get a little more sleep because I'm a Vata body type so I tend to wake up at 7am. I saw that cortisol starts to rise at 6am but then according to Ayurveda we need to wake up during the Vata hour which is 4am and 5:30. Not in the Kapha hour which is 6am to 10am. A little confused about this because it doesn't align with the natural cortisol levels. I would have assumed that the Vata time would be when cortisol begins to rise (6am)?

Sophia: Hi there doc! I’ve been binging your podcast for about 4 months now and am loving it as a part of my morning routine. You’re such a great part of my life and I truly thank you for all that you do. Keep up your fantastic work! I have a somewhat contentious question regarding research studies - what is your opinion on getting “open access” to all research? I appreciate that with your Friday podcasts, you are able to give a simplified analysis of these long and highly esoteric studies to laypeople like me, but you’ve inspired me to do my own research now. Do you have any advice for obtaining “research study literacy”? Which research libraries do you use for your Friday reviews? I notice it’s mostly pubmed, but do you use Springer or do you have a membership with SSRN? I know some people have access to their university libraries, but I do think those expire. How do you check to make sure your studies aren’t contaminated with monetary agendas from certain sponsors? Do you only read ones that are free access? Do you think it’s worth it to become a member to certain libraries that are doing good and necessary research? If so, which ones do you like? Any thoughts would be great. Sorry for the tirade of questions, and thanks again. Much love, from Sophia

Katlynn: Hello Dr. Cabral, I am 30 years old and had my first child naturally Aug 2020. Prior to pregnancy I was slightly overweight but not showing symptoms of toxic overload etc. I competed in powerlifting, practiced yoga, hiked mountains, and worked as a full time firefighter. Since having my baby I have had nothing but inflammation symptoms in my body. I have adjusted my diet back to an anti-inflammatory plan and am following your guidance as far as reducing the amount of meat I eat daily/increasing veg(also finding more quality sources of food). I recently did a 14 day detox with good results. I finally dropped below 180#for the first time since pregnancy. My goal weight and competition weight is 150-155. I am short statured at 5’3” but typically maintain 150 at 20% BF or so. This is the weight/body comp I feel the strongest and healthiest. I am being diligent about my diet and exercise and balancing my stressful job with relaxation to limit my stress response. My feeling is that something with pregnancy has completely thrown me off. I believe it was that tipping point of my rain barrel but I am diligently reducing my toxic load. My question finally, is- what advice do you have regarding remineralization/ nutritional support for a woman after pregnancy given some of my info?

Anonymous: Dr. Cabral, I’m writing out of a place of desperation. I feel like my body is literally breaking down, but realize that I cannot give in to that mindset; that will not serve me. My health is negatively affecting my daily functioning. I need direction on what to do, explore, & next steps. I’ve learned a great deal from you, & for that am grateful. I struggle with symptoms of fatigue & sleep issues, urticaria & skin issues, cysts, digestive issues, hx of rheumatoid arthritis & allergies, inflammation, weight issues, cold hands & feet, brain fog & memory issues, mild fibroids, struggle with word recall, imbalanced cortisol, etc. There are recent concerns about blood pressure & cholesterol. My heart rate is usually elevated, between 100-150ish. Even when I wake up, it’s in the 100’s. I’ve been to many doctors & specialists. I started my holistic health journey by running labs with your team & then found an integrative provider to support me locally. I’ve done thermography, which revealed lymph congestion, inflammation & my immune system is chronically activated. I've completed mold & CBO protocols. Next thoughts are to explore metals/biodentist, hidden infections & lyme. What else should I be looking at? I respect your opinion and perspective. Thank you for your patience.

Andrea: Hey Doc! I'm a 23 year old female Vata. My breakfast for almost two years was always wild blueberries, GF oats, oat milk, DNS powder and a tsp of mct oil or another healthy fat. Recently, I have replaced the blueberries with banana and 2 teaspoons of organic matcha. And to be honest, I'm obsessed I love it! I just feel a little bad because I know that having wild blueberries everyday is important for the antioxidants and anti-carcinogenic benefits. Did I make a bad decision? I've read that 1 tsp of matcha has 17 times more antioxidants than blueberries. So maybe I'm fine? Do you think switching back to blueberries is vital or I'm I getting the same benefits with the banana and organic matcha?

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: 

Whitney: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have had a strange condition for several years that no one and no doctor can solve. In 2017, I had breast implants placed due to breast abnormalities from breast feeding. Three months after surgery, I stopped producing my own saliva. ENT placed me on pilocarpine to initiate saliva production. Fast forward two years, I moved into a house with black mold. The environment in my mouth/nose became extremely sticky and glue - like. The only relief I get from this is taking an anti fungal lozenge, clomitrazole. I am taking an astonishing 600 lozenges a month that are coupled with the 200 pilocarpine pills a month. *side note* was also exposed to heavy metals (unknown type) in 2018. ANY info on this or ways I could improve would be greatly appreciated. It’s getting worse, and the needs for these prescriptions are becoming increasingly alarming and monetarily taxing. submitted earlier,  I also had an explant/ capsulectomy this past March 2021 due to concerns that my breast implants were causing my lack of saliva and sticky glue like issues. It has not eased and possibly gotten worse. I’m also blowing my nose up to 100 times a day with black debri coming out. Was on itraconazole in 2020 for six months due to possible systemic fungal infection. Just trying to give you as many facts as possible so you can help me figure out this miserable and horrible puzzle. Thank you so much, Dr Cabral!!!!

Christina: Hi there. I have suffered with interstitial cystitis since 2018. I am a 31 year old woman who is a school teacher and mother of 2. I am hoping you can answer what good supplements are great for IC also what is the root cause? Thank you!

Anonymous: When someone has bad smelling flatulence almost immediately (within 5-10 mins) after eating processed foods (bakery sweets for example), what could be going on for it to occur so fast?

Karim: Hi Dr Cabral! Thank you for showing up everyday for your community. You are extraordinary. I recently bought an Oura ring and I'm trying to understand it as much as I can. The main reason that I bought it was to track my sleep and HRV. I wear a fitbit at the same time and the sleep data in my fitbit is very different to the oura ring (fitbit always says less deep & rem sleep funnily enough) so not sure which one to trust. I'm guessing the oura ring? haha My second question is about HRV. And yes, I did listen to conversations with Dr Cabral on this topic but I'm just having a hard time understanding where to look at. Since the HRV is based on the previous night, whenever I see a lower HRV, what day do I need to look at? Would it be the factors (lack of sleep, poor diet, stress, etc) on the previous day? Sorry, I know my question is a little confusing and I hope it makes sense. I just want to know what period I need to look at when trying to identify why my HRV was lower than usual. This will allow me to work on it better by figuring out what specific factor caused this decrease.

Karim: Sorry I forgot to ask you in my previous question if a lower HRV is always a bad thing? Is it true that when your HRV drops, it indicates that one branch of your autonomic nervous system (ANS) is becoming more dominant, either your rest-and-digest or fight-or-flight side? So actually, if my PNS increases, my HRV will drop and so it's actually a good thing right? If that's the case, I'm confused as to why everyone is focusing on increasing HRV…

Anonymous: What can help with dyspareunia - a symptom of vulvar and vaginal atrophy, due to menopause. My wife had a hysterectomy years ago. She is using a prescription product- Intrarosa Prasterone , but this gives her headaches and other negative symptoms.
