One of the most amazing parts of goal manifestation is how much we are the determining factor in the outcome of the timeline.
 
By that, I mean that it is we who ultimately decide how quickly we will achieve something based on our preconceived notions of how long it should take.
 
Sometimes this is based on reality, but more often it is simply enabling cultural norms to dictate how fast we can make our goals happen.
 
For more information on how to make your goals come to life faster check out today's #CabralConcept 2187 - 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!   

Krystina: For as long as I can remember, I get recurring yeast infections and BV. I generally flip-flop between the two. I know it is a common problem for many women. I am assuming I have candida overgrowth, but what can I actually do to solve this? In addition, I am currently pregnant and having to treat a yeast infection now every 2-3 weeks. My doctor says to just keep treating it, but it is having a dramatic effect on my life. Keep in mind that I will be breastfeeding in a month or so.

Jeffrey:Hello Dr. Steve, I'm grateful for you generosity and the expansion you create in the world! Could you please add a review of the coffee alternative product called MUD/WTR? I'm curious as to your professional and personal evaluation. With gratitude, Jeffrey

Becky: Are you the NP that reversed your Addison’s disease? Did you have primary or secondary and how did you do it? Do you have protocols or recommendations to support the body for primary adrenal insufficiency?

Alex: Hi Dr. Cabral! I am super thankful for your continued work and service to the world. My question is regarding swallowing pills. I have this mental block where whenever I try to swallow a pill, my throat just locks up and I swallow the water but the pill will stay there in my mouth. Any tips, advice, or resources for moving past this? I was able to swallow -meds- a few months ago since it was so tiny. Thank you for your time and presence.

Michael: Can h pylori and gastritis cause Tension headaches?

Lara: Good day! I'm obsessed with your podcast, I listen to it every day. I wanted to understand how marijuana is known to dilate the pupils. Wouldn't it be the other way around? I thought marijuana would activate the parasympathetic state and we know that dilation of pupils is related to the sympathetic state which doesn't make a lot of sense!

 

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: 

Dianna: Hello, I am a Pitta/Vata. There was no female celebrity as an example. I am 65 and trying to lose the last 30lbs. I usually follow low carb (meat) due to having gluten intolerance, grain intolerance. I have difficulty trying to fast. Do you recommend a specific diet? thanks.

Andrea: I hope you're having a great day! My question is about maltodextrin. There are great functional medicine brands out there but I've noticed that sometimes supplements contain maltodextrin when using an extract of something (i.e. ginger root extract). What are your thoughts of maltodextrin in these situations?

Maria: Hey Dr. Cabral! After 10 months of chronic hives (No other histamine symptoms. I was diagnosed with autoimmune based hives), I did the Big 5 and after consulting with 1 of your health coaches, I started CBO protocol, citricidal drops, thyroid support, adrenal sooth, vit D3, and Omega 3s. I'm on my last week of the CBO and will start the CBO finisher immediately after for 3 months. During this time I've seen improvement in my hives (98% gone), I've been able to get off of all my pharmaceuticals except for 1 biologic injection that I still get bi-weekly. I've been following the Sensitive Gut Guide, but also sticking to a low histamine diet (which unfortunately eliminates a lot of the foods on the SGG). My question is if you think I can truly heal myself from this or if I'll always live with this issue, and I'll just have to learn to manage it through strict lifestyle and diet like I have the last 3 months? Even though I've been doing better, I'm terrified to stray from the SGG or low histamine diet for fear that the hives may return. I'd love to be able to enjoy a cheat meal or even high histamine foods on the SGG. Any thoughts or words of hope?! How long did it take you to fully heal all your histamine based issues?

Rosie: Hi Dr Cabral! I’ve been loving your podcast. Honestly, there’s nothing like it out there. Question: My HRV has fallen dramatically the last 3 months. I track it with Oura. It used to be around 70 and now it has been consistently on the 30-40s. Mental stress has not changed and I actually stopped working out so hard. Just sticking to 10k daily steps plus some band resistance training. However I’ve ran a HTMA and OAT and heavy metals and yeast showed up. This was not present when I ran this a year ago after I completed CBO. But I guess I caused myself yeast overgrowth again Do you think this can cause HRV to go down? Heart rate has also been elevated during sleep too! Very weird. Basically my readiness has been terrible the past 3 months.

Lewis: Please is pure mastic gum taken before meals or after meals

Breanna: In your heavy metal detox protocol you use chlorella to bind the heavy metals. In a different course I am currently taking, I am being taught that if someone has silver fillings you want to stay away from chlorella because it will pull it out of the mouth. Have you heard of this? Would you suggest other binders if this is the case?

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!

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!   

Dianne: I have, what I call, an occasional froggy throat. No amount of attempting to clear my throat nor coughing helps. I live alone and don't realize I don't have much of a voice until I get on the phone or go shopping, which doesn't help in determining if it is strictly morning or night. Thanks for any suggestion you have,

Allie: Hello! Thank you so much for answering my question. I’ve struggled with gaining weight my whole life. During pregnancy I’m able to pack on a good 40 lbs but then I loose it all quickly and then some. Currently weighing in at 94 lbs and I’m 5’8”. Do you have any ideas as to what I might try in order to gain more weight while keeping a healthy diet? Also, I’d love to try the 7 or 14 day detox but am concerned with losing more weight. Do you have any suggestions in doing the detox for someone with my concern? Thank you so much for taking the time to help!

Anonymous: Hi Dr Cabral I have a question regarding stretch marks & hyperpigmentation. What are your thoughts on getting rid of stretch marks. And getting rid of hyperpigmentation from neck and knees, will micro needling/derma rolling help get rid of hyperpigmentation and stretch marks, or is laser the only option for good results? Thanks

Erin: Hello! I love these podcasts; they are so so helpful. I’ve been wandering...Is there a root cause to asthma? Thank you!

Susan: Hi! I’m 50 yo female who takes generally good care of myself. My right eye has been twitching several times a day for at least the last seven weeks. I don’t have any other symptoms and a recent eye exam (just prior to the twitching) was healthy. I take magnesium and other anti inflammatory supplements. I have struggled with monthly hormonal headaches- and often have neck tightness/pain particularly the muscle between my shoulder and neck. I also tend to clench my teeth at night but not significantly enough to cause jaw pain or tooth issues. Could I have somehow injured or stressed the muscles in my face/eyes? I do use blue light glasses and have cut down screen time but the twitch remains!! I do yoga and exercise moderately most days and get enough sleep and do not have high levels of stress. So what gives with this twitch!! Thanks so much in advance!!

Noelle: 3 years ago I woke up in the middle of the night and wasn’t able to walk. I wasn’t able to put any pressure on my ankle. I saw multiple doctors whoeither said my x-rays showed nothing or said I just don’t remember injuring myself. Twitches even put my ankle in excruciating pain. I wore a boot for three months and after three months I could barely put enough pressure on my ankle to be able to walk.3 yrs later the pain is gone but comes &goes every 3months but the swelling is still there and looks like I have a cankle. since then about every 3-6 months the swelling and joint pain to other joints. It next went to my knee and I woke up again in the middle of the night and couldn’t put pressure on my knee. Then 3 months later it went to my wrist and then my elbow then my upper back/shoulders/spine. These joints all have flare ups and days where I can’t sit up because my back hurts so bad:The worst one is my wrist where doing nothing hurts or getting dressed hurts or pulling a blanket over myself in bed hurts. I’ve been tested for rheumatoid arthritis,Lyme disease but both are neg. I’ve done detoxes and diet changes and I’ve noticed no difference. I’ve seen a functional dr,allergist, and still no answers.Wanted to see if you’ve heard of anything likethis or have suggestions?

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: 

Andrea: I’ve heard that Ashwagandha can have a negative effect on the thyroid, leading to hypothyroidism, if taken for too long. Is this an herb that should be pulsed, or is this information untrue?

Anonymous: Any advice for crusty eyes? Feels like it's a little sticky when I wake up. Never had this before!

Cara: You are incredible, thank you so much for showing up every day for our community! I'm an IHP L2 female graduate (Vata/25 year old) and recently did a bunch of tests (saliva hormones test, stool test, food sensitivity, hair tissue test & neurotransmitters test due to feeling very wired, with muscle spasms, and anxious. Gut is great but the following showed up: Stage 5 adrenal fatigue, very low potassium, elevations in mercury, arsenic and other metals and apparently my serotonin is on the higher end (not out of range), low norepinephrine and low epinephrine (the ratio between them is high though so confused?). My question is: What can I do to fix my norepinephrine and epinephrine? Also, do you think the l-theanine from my daily matcha is causing the high serotonin? Should I stop?

Anna: I am generally fit and healthy 35 y.o. woman, with long history of being vegetarian, who experienced 3 miscarriages (2 out of 3 was partial molar pregnancy). After all tests, supplemnetary plan, my period got completely crazy (it used to be every 30 days) and now I am bleeding for a month, it started on 10 day of my cycle. I have taken progresteron and excatyl to stop bleeding. Going on acupuncture. Nothing helps.

Victoria: Hi Dr. Cabral. Looking forward to this response & hearing your mastery! Thank you for you time. My question is - what order should I heal the below issues? I have a lot of different issues going on. Long-term lyme (still currently positive for IGM and IGG w western blot) - never took antibiotics. High mold - very high in Aspergillus mycotoxins (Ochratoxin A & Gliotoxin) Ochratoxin levels - 21.19 MG/dl (normal range <7.5) Gliotoxin - 1431 MG/dl (normal range <200) Complement C4- 2819ng/mL (normal range is 0-650) I think I also have high candida considering I took your food sensitivity test and I was off the charts for the candida section. Lastly - I believe my Epstein Barr levels are also high. So my question is .. would you first tackle the mold, lyme, candida, virus in that order? My most nagging symptoms of “dis-ease” are vertigo (menieres disease), high sensitivity to foods, and eye fatigue. / issues focusing. For example .. I could purchase your mold detox package, then follow your long-term lyme protocol, then tackle the candida using the CBO protocol, etc. or would you have a different recommendation? Thanks so much! Hopefully this wasn’t too much of an earful!

Dar: Have you ever done the andreas moritz liver and gall bladder flush? Wondering what your thoughts are on it. I've done it a few times. It ends with olive oil and grapefruit juice and having Epsom salt water to flush stones out.

Isn't it funny how in the health and fitness industry everyone seems to work in absolutes?
 
I would've thought as an industry we would have all learned our lesson and begin to understand that the truth always lies closer to the center than with fringe diets and fads…
 
Luckily not everyone thinks this way and if you keep an open mind and you actually look at the mechanisms for how the body works you can begin to see the flaws in the marketing around these fad diets…
 
So in today's #CabralConcept 2175 I'd like to help answer the question once and for all if you need to be in ketosis in order to burn fat - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

Since low carb and high fat diets are all the craze right now, I thought I’d share some interesting research on mitigating the harmful effects of certain high fat diets on your health…
 
It’s interesting, but nature has once again given us a compound to dampen the oxidative and inflammatory stress we can put on our body when not careful…
 
So on today’s #CabralConcept 2174 I’d like to share the amazing research on a high-fat diet and how reseveratrol can negate the effects - Enjoy the show and let me know if you have any questions or comments!

Every quarter I like to look at my priorities and goals list and make sure it is up-to-date…
 
Along with those goals I also want to make sure that my non-negotiables match what I am looking to get out of life over the next 90 days…
 
If I am not putting in the work, providing enough value to those in my life, or of service to our community I have to rethink either my goals or what I am willing to do in order to achieve them…
 
That's why on today's #CabralConcept 2173 I'd like to share with you my non-negotiables list and hopefully inspire you to create one of your own – enjoy the show and let me know what you thought and what some of your non-negotiables are in the comments below!

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: Hello doctor, I’d be grateful if you would provide your thoughts about my digestive concern. I pass gas often. Sometimes several times within an hour. It’s odorless. It’ll begin a couple hours after lunch and continue through the night. I pass a lot of gas in the mornings before having to go number 2. After that i won’t have excessive gas until after lunch again. I never feel bloated. I’m not gassy when fasting, it’s only after eating whole food meals. I drink a smoothie for breakfast. Lunch and dinner follows your weight maintenance plan from ihp. I eat plant based for 80% of my whole food meals. I take two digestive enzymes with each meal and I use extra enzymes when I eat beans. Thanks in advance for your response.

Angie: Hi Dr. Cabral. Thank you for your work and dedication to help people all over the world get well and feel alive again. I have done the detox, parasite protocol and am now doing the CBO protocol and am currently undergoing testing for mold toxicity through my local naturopathic doctor. I have two questions: 1). I will be doing the CBO Finisher after the CBO protocol. My body does not react well to glutamine and it gives me unexplained anxiety. I can take the FM detox levels, but not the 5G in the Healthy Gut Support. Why is that? Because of this, what dosage do you recommend me titrate until I can handle the 5G? 2). If I have high levels of mold and will likely need to repeat or lengthen my treatment, what do you recommend? Should I repeat month 1 and 2 again or continue only certain supplements until I get my levels down?

Jen: I am curious why I urinate so much more after a smoothie, than just plain water. Whenever I have a smoothie, I am running to pee multiple times within the following 1-2 hours. I don't have this with water. Thank you!

Emma: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have struggled for years with constipation, gas and bloating. I have tried everything in the book and the foods I have the hardest time digesting are vegetables and fruits. I struggle because I know how healthy they are for the gut and everything, but they just make me more constipated and bloated. What do you recommend?

Lorena: I take the DNS everyday and recently have done a blood test in which serum vitamin B12 and serum folate were elevated. Does this means there's a deficiency or that I'm taking too much vitamin B?

Lorena: I also forgot to ask that I recently did a hair tissue test that showed high magnesium (low potassium) & high zinc (copper normal). I take 400mg of magnesium citrate and 100mg of mag glycinate before bed and the balanced zinc every morning. As an anxious Vata, my body does well with magnesium. But now I’m not sure what to do. Should I stop taking magnesium and zinc?

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: 

Ashley: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have had amenorrhea for quite a long time. It first started when I lost a large amount of weight for a bodybuilding competition. This was 10 years ago. Over the years I was put on birth control to help try and regulate the period and "bring it on" however I didn't like the way that made me feel and I knew that was only putting a bandaid on the problem and not fixing the real issue. I have tried MANY different things to no avail. Fast forward to present day. In the last 2 years my period has started to return! My doctor says this is a great sign. Maybe my body is becoming more balanced? However it still is irregular. I've gotten it about 4-5 times a year the past two years, it lasts just a few days. The very hard part is I will experience pms symptoms for 3-4 weeks! Irritability, extreme bloating, extreme nipple and breast discomfort. Truly severe symptoms. It even affects me mentally as well as physically. I know you often talk about estrogen dominance but in my case, my estrogen, including estradiol and those other female hormones, are extremely low. What do you do in this case? How can I rebalance these hormones and ease these symptoms? There is a lot of information out there and it all can be so overwhelming, like there's so much I need to do. Please help!

Anonymous: Hi Dr. Cabral! I’m a daily podcast listener and I want to thank you for all your helpful wisdom you share. I’ve had medical issues that I was born with that has caused me to have chronic pain and multiple surgeries throughout childhood and all the way to being an adult now. I recognize as an adult that those procedures and how I was treated was at times necessary and that the doctors were only trying to help. However, lately I’ve taken a look at what happened through a child’s perspective and can see how scary, invalidating and traumatic those experiences were. How do I move on from medical trauma? How do I get help with moving through this when the same people I look to for help are the same people that trigger these feelings in the first place? My body feels constantly stuck in SNS dominance despite following all the health protocols, and I know this issue is holding me back from being well. I’ve tried working with different therapists, hypnotherapist and a life coach. Any guidance would be much appreciated.

Erin: Hoping you have some advice... I keep getting sinus infections and constantly have allergy issues and in the winter often get bronchitis. I’ve done allergy testing and have bad environmental allergies. I’ve been doing a lot of gut healing over the past few years yet I am still having these issues. Starting to feel defeated...any ideas or advice? If it does help/matter, most family members on my moms side have allergy issues as well. Thanks so much for all you do.

Kathy: Dear Doctor Cabral, thank you for helping so many people. You are amazing! My daughter (who is in her 20's) wants to know why something has been happening for the last few years, and I did do a podcast archive search, but nothing came up, so I would love to know if you have seen this before: The first bite of any type of food that she eats after not eating for a couple of hours (especially first thing in the morning) tastes very sour and causes her cheeks to pucker. The food is not necessarily a sour food, so it seems a little unusual. Water is the only thing that will not do this. She's in great shape and takes good care of her health. Thank you so much, I really appreciate you. :)

Tina: I have a few brown spots on my face that my dermatologist is calling melasma. Is there a way to get rid of it naturally without using all the bleach and chemical creams he’s recommending? He told me melasma comes from the sun and from heat. So now I’m afraid to go for a walk during the day with the sun out and also I have been avoiding the infrared sauna because he said the heat can cause more of it. Are the spots caused by liver toxicity? Hormone in balance? How can I get rid of them? Thank you so much!

Lola: Hi! I have learnt so much from the show and it truly is a blessing! I am a 24year old vata-pitta female with kapha vikruti and I have had alopecia since I was 16. I had always had extremely fine and thin hair so getting alopecia really affected my mental health. It started out as small bald patches on the sides on my head and one in the back, but then over the years, I got thinning at the temples, a receding hairline and thinning at the part of my hair and the crown. I have tried everything but haven't really found a solution. I have recently adopted a pitta pacifying diet, but I'm not sure if it's helping. I am now losing tiny hairs that almost look like vellus hairs and I'm not sure why. I think the hair that regrows falls out after a few weeks. Please.provide some insight into what the issue could be. Also, I have tested my thyroid and it is normal.

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 seems that there’s a different diet out there for every day of the week…
 
However, if you strip back the marketing and dogma of all of the best diets they all center themselves around tried and true formulas backed by science…

I use to believe that how we age was mainly due to our genetics and outside factors largely outside of our control…
 
But then after running a large-scale functional medicine practice and working with many families I saw how some individuals look decades younger than other adult siblings…
 
What I begin to realize was while there certainly is a genetic factor as to what we will look like when we age how quickly we age and how youthful we look has far more to do with our toxicities and deficiencies…
 
That's why on today's #CabralConcept 2167 I would like to share with you the seven factors for flawless skin and how anyone can easily adapt these to their life – enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

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!   

Emma: Hello Dr. Cabral, My mother has been diagnosed with Grave’s and Thyroid Eye Disease. Her symptoms include proptosis in one eye, very low TSH and normal T4 & T3. Although all of her antibodies have shown very low or zero, even after repeat testing. Is there a specific imbalances or deficiencies you commonly see paired with low TSH ? What could be causing the proptosis if she doesn’t have any antibodies? Could Candida be at play? What are your top recommendations for Grave’s/Thyroid Eye Disease? So grateful for your support. Thank you!

Anonymous: If someone is sensitive or allergic to wormwood and/black walnut, what product or ingredients would you recommend instead to be able to do both a parasite protocol and a CBO protocol? It seems like omitting the microbial balance and parapro would not achieve the best results, but I can’t tolerate either of these. Even using the smallest doses and titration, I get severe stomach pain when using these supplements. I have learned so much from your podcast. Thank you for all you do!

Michelle: I'm always on a quest to source the best possible animal proteins I can find. Recently I went on a search for turkey, specifically turkey slices like deli meat. I know better than to buy any grocery store deli meats so I tried searching for local pasture raised turkeys but couldn't find anything except a whole bird. Then I referenced The Cornucopia Institutes Organic Poultry Scorecard which gave me one option I could find in the stores with a 4-bird rating but on further research of that company I found they only have a special Holiday bird that qualifies for the GAP step 5 rating and all their other birds are only GAP step 3, which means outdoor access, not pasture raised. Very frustrating and I've come to the conclusion that I'll probably need to buy a whole bird and cook it myself. What I am wondering though is even with the local pasture raised farms it's normal to supplement with an organic / non-gmo feed that is a grain product. I do not eat grains due to my autoimmune history. If I'm eating animal protein that had some grain feed during it's life span does that affect me? To quote Michael Pollan "You are what you eat eats.”

Melania: Yeast showed up in the stool test but not in the OAT. How is this even possible?

Tina: I am a 52 year old female who loves doing bodybuilding shows every couple of years. I eat a very healthy macro-based diet with Whole Foods play on for the most part I am very healthy. I just ordered the big five and I’m excited to test my hormones. Curious how I can put on more muscle without taking steroids? How can I increase my testosterone levels naturally? Is there something I could be eating or taking to help me put on more muscle since I do strength train five days a week moderately heavy but I feel like I’m not putting any new muscle on. Thank you for everything! I think you’re amazing and I appreciate you and your team so so much.

Simon: Hi Dr Cabral, I know you are a big fan of high-powered blenders for smoothies and I was wondering what your thoughts were on 'vacuum'/pressurized blenders, which remove air before blending, supposedly reducing oxidation. I have to make my smoothie 2+hr before I drink it every morning so the potential to reduce oxidation is appealing, but I'd love to hear whether you think they are worth the extra money and have any recommendations?

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: 

Lorena: Hi there! I’m a 28 year old Vata and IHP Level 1 and 2 certified. Recently, I’ve been noticing that my Oura ring has constantly been telling me that my heart rate has been elevated at night. My HRV as a result is much lower than usual. I haven’t got one night of a normal heart rate and it’s been in “red” in the Oura app (56-62 bpm. At the same time that this started happening, I started to feel some weird neurological symptoms similar to those in MCAS (intense anxiety especially after eating, heart palpitations, brain fog & more). I’ve also suddenly started to experience bloating and gas after whole food meals (not smoothies). I’ve never had digestive issues before and did the CBO a year ago for skin issues solely. Trying to figure out how to lower this heart rate at night. I’ve even lowered stressed massively (at work & stopped working out intensively). Any idea what could be going on? I take a good amount of magnesium before bed too and sometimes even melatonin. Waiting on stool test results because I want to rule out parasites & h pylori. But if the latter is negative, what else should I look at?

Melanie: I always hear you talk about people with high blood pressure needing more potassium in their diet. They would therefore not have to worry too much about sodium. However, my dad has high blood pressure and a few weeks ago ended in the hospital as his potassium levels were very very elevated and it was life threatening. He has high blood pressure, diabetes type 2 etc… I was wondering how this can be possible? I thought everyone with high blood pressure usually had low potassium levels! Btw this event happened the day after he took the laxative to do a colonoscopy so not sure if this is relevant.

Anonymous: Hi Stephen, I have a question about insulin. In the health world currently, there is A LOT of talk about blood sugar and insulin in regards to losing weight. I am regularly reading that insulin must be kept low because insulin halts fat oxidation. Therefore is insulin is up you can't burn fat. However, there is an abundance of research that shows that under isocaloric conditions, there is little to no difference between LCHF and HCLF diets. I knw you yourself are familiar with the rice, fruit, and fruit juice diet reearch which was basically all carbs and yet insulin sensitivity was improved and weight loss occured. Surely this would suggest energy balance is the overriding important factor in weight loss. If "fat can't be burned when insulin is present or high" how can such studies be explained? Would love your insight here. Thank you.

Amber: Hello Dr.Cabral. First I just want to say thank you so much for all you do and give. I’m currently getting my level 1 and I truly look forward to learning from you everyday. Ok so in regards to my question… My 7 year old son got covid about 3 weeks ago now. He got hit in the form of mostly diarrhea for two days. I’m only giving that piece of info because the current problem has only happened since having said virus. (In all his 7 years he has been sick about 4 other times.) He’s been hit with the current problem about 3 times in the last two weeks. He’ll be eating and his stomach will start to hurt really bad. One, was on Thanksgiving which I thought ok maybe all the different foods being combined. Then it happened again today two different times after eating something he always eats. Didn’t hit him as hard but still came. His stomach does seem to settle once I give him this ginger drink. My mom intuition tells me something isn’t right and I need to catch it before it develops into something worse. I have some ideas on where to start but I’d love your thoughts first. Greatly appreciate it. Thank you very much.

Ewa: hello, my son Isak18 can't seem to get his full voice back after he caught a cold early fall, which happened around the same time last year. Its Really bad especially in the morning when he has to cough, clearing the pflem and scratchyness out. The ENT took a pict of inflamed vocal cords, lots of pflem and gave him antibiotics and steroids. He felt all better for a week before it came back again. He is working outside around damp leaves quite a bit but doesn't have any other mold-symptoms... Since he was a little puppy his colds always got to his lungs and airways. What do you think doc, whats going on? Much appreciation your way! Ewa and Isak

Malinda: Ive read in medical studies of children who contract the chicken pox virus are less likely to contract shingles later in life, which is so much worse. If this is true what is the best way for them to catch the chicken pox now that so many children are vaccinated against it? What can parents do to avoid their child from contracting painful shingles later in life? As well as naturally boosting myself?
