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…

 

Brittany: Hi Dr. Cabral. Thank you for all that you do and the information you provide, it has been incredibly helpful in my healing journey. Wondering if there is any connection between hemorrhoids and candida or other gut bacterial overgrowth? Especially in women who have had a history with antibiotics from an early age, 10+ years of birth control pill use, and poor (refined carbohydrate/sugar) diet? I’m learning that poor liver function doesn’t allow for proper filtration for various bodily functions and it dawned on me that there might be a connection between the two. Thanks for any insight or knowledge on this. Thanks!

 

Nikki: Would you have any ideas on why my toenails have a strong amber/orange tint to them? (I take DNS/vit D/vit C/cell boost/daily hair/magnesium/adrenal soothe/thyroid support) Thanks

 

Rob: Hi Dr Stephen j heard your interview in Hay Ferrugia podcast and was wondering where j can get more informed and info on managing and advice on my endomorph body soma type in order to break metabolic and hormone issues to turn myself into a more of a fat burner Cheers

 

Damian: Hi Dr Cabral. Thank you for everything you do. I am 25 years old and live in the UK. I recently lost my dad and have suffered from central nervous system fatigue for over a year and a half. I have my diet dialled in - vegetables, healthy fats, fish etc, only walk as more causes greater fatigue and heart palpates and body shaking, I use a sauna daily and practise calming rituals like meditation. However I feel like my body is broken and do not know what else I can do. Doctors don’t seem to want to help me and I am struggling to live my life. Thank you, Damian

 

Shannon: Hi Dr Cabral. I’m starting week 2 of my 21 day detox. I’m struggling with the food list, as a lot of the foods listed are inflammatory causing (beans,lentils,hummus, asparagus,celery,garlic,shallot/onion,beets,snow peas,mushrooms,Brussels sprouts,artichoke,cauliflower, etc). I’m really confused how this detox is supposed to help people who have gut issues? Before starting the detox I had been following the FODMAP diet, eliminating all foods that cause inflammation. I felt relief and improvements, but also needed to go deeper with my healing. Now I’m incorporating all those foods back into my diet. My stomach is more bloated, gassy and I’m experiencing diarrhea. I thought perhaps the diarrhea was part of the detox? My sleep only improved on the 2 fasted days during the 1st week of detox. I’m still fatigued, not feeling any gut relief or losing weight. I’m not currently taking any supplements, only the shakes and detox pills. I’ve done your Candida/Metabolic, Minerals/Metals, Omega-3/Inflammation tests but I’m waiting for my results. I thought I’d get a jump start on detoxing and was planning on starting the CBO protocol after. I’m starting to question if I should stop this detox? Please share your thoughts and if this is normal? Thank you so much.

 

Maria: Hello and thank you for all that you do. I am really enjoying listening to your podcast and I'm also a member at equal life. I can really use some help with supporting my children's health. I have two girls who just turned six and seven. And they are constantly getting sick of something. It seems like every 3 weeks or so they have something new. Whether it's a cough, a cold, the stomach flu and so on. It's very frustrating. I feel like I do all the right things which is give them vitamins, make sure they're drinking enough water, make sure they're eating healthy food, getting outside, being active. But unfortunately they still get sick very frequently. Can you give me any recommendations as to what things I can do and should be doing for them and anything that you would suggest that I would add additionally.

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: 

 

Bettina: Hi Dr. Cabral. Thank you for providing such great information in an easy to understand way. What are your thought on a woman getting pregnant at 42 years old? Is there anything a woman at this age should be sure to do, eat or take if pregnant or trying to get pregnant at this age? Is it too big a toll on the body at this age? Thank you for any advice and information you can provide.

 

Bettina: Dear Dr. Cabral. Thank you once again for all the information you provide. Just listening to the mindpump podcast you mentioned. You mention cyst on the pituitary gland. Could you speak more about this; the consequense and what can be done to remove it or make its consequences less.\ Thanks you for any help and suggestion you share

 

Darren: Good day Dr Cabral. Hope all is well with and the family. I know you say to avoid liquids with meals unless it's like a hot ginger tea or something. Given the protein and caloric content some consider as “meals”. Just asking is it okay to have a smoothie at the same time with a solid breakfast or lunch or hould we separate the time we have that. Even if post workout etc. Thanks for all you do.

 

Lynette: Hi Dr Cabral I am recovering from breast cancer and am at the stage where I need to heal my gut issues. Do you have any gut healing tips WITHOUT the use of zinc and glutamine etc. These 2 supplements (along with excess copper, iron, protein and B1 and B2) are not recommended to cancer survivors. I love your podcasts, thank you for all you do. Regards Lynette (Australia)

 

Anonymous: Hello! I'm a relatively new listener and love listening to your podcasts and learning ways to heal myself and my loved ones, Thank you! My mom had lung cancer 6 years ago and has radiation damage to her lungs and COPD. She has had CAT scans every 6 months for the last six years and her most recent one showed an increase in fluid. Her oncologist put in an order to have the fluid drained and said there is nothing she can do on her own to help the fluid drain on it's own. She has been drinking Muellin Tea daily for the last 3 years or so. Is there anything else she can do or take to help the lung from retaining this fluid and/or repair the radiation damage? I searched the podcasts but could not find anything besides Muellin. I understand, no medical diagnosis or cures just would like to know what you would do for your family/patients. I also have another question. Should someone that showed high markers of Candida stay clear of red yeast rice for help with cholesterol? And is that the case for other forms of yeast as well? Thank you for all you do.

 

Tammy: Hi Dr Cabral! Thank you so much for the research and knowledge you bring to the world! I am a 50 year old heathy female. My only issue is a have a n oder that my husband says comes from my nose. I don't think i can smell or taste like normal. I do sinus cleanses every day. I have tried your sinus support but nothing seems to help. What could be causing this and is there a natural way to help with this? Thank you so much! Tammy

As someone who enjoys drinking coffee, I want to make sure that what I am making is the healthiest version possible…

Do you wake up exhausted?

 

Did you get a full 8 hours of sleep but still have to drag yourself out of bed?

 

Our bodies have a natural sleep/wake rhythm and when working properly you should start to get tired when it gets dark out and begin to wake up when the sun rises.

 

When our bodies are out of sync, however, we can feel groggy and sluggish in the morning and wired at night.

 

That’s why on today’s #CabralConcept 2364 I’d like to share with you how our sleep cycle can get out of sync and the reasons why you might have low energy and poor sleep – Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

I love technology…

 

But along with the ease that technology can bring to our everyday lives we need to be aware of the risk we are putting ourselves at if or when we choose to use it.

 

As technology progresses there will be more and more devices that emerge and it is important to understand the damage it can cause so we can make the most informed decisions for ourselves and our families

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2363 I want to share with you some research and known dangers behind wireless personal devices and why I choose not to wear wireless AirPods – Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

I truly believe we can do it all…

 

We all have the same hours in the day to accomplish our goals, yet it seems at times that there are people who manage to do so much more.

 

Recently I attended an event with business founders in the health & wellness space and noticed one specific characteristic that all of these leaders had in common.

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2362 I want to share with you what I think the key component is that allows people to focus on what really matters and accomplish their goals – 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…

 

Richard: Hello Dr. Cabral, I would really appreciate it if you would provide your thoughts on dry fasting. I tried to search for previous shows where you spoke of this but couldn't find one where you spoke of dry fasting in detail, it's pros, cons and if there is ever a time where it should be used. Some say its dangerous and should never be done and others think it has its uses. I have a lot of cysts/lipomas (not sure which one) all over my body and a podcast I was listening to said drying fasting might work to get rid of them because when the body is dehydrated it will look for dysfunctional cells, tissues etc. to dissolve and extract water from. What do you think about all this? Thank you for answering my question, hope you are having a great day!

 

Gail: Hi Dr. C! Thank you so much for all that you offer to us humans seeking to learn and find health and balance in our lives. I am currently going through the program to become certified as an IHP level 1 and then level 2 health coach to add to my work as an acupuncturist and I'm so excited to have finally found the knowledge I have been looking for. I am curious to hear your thoughts about Rifaximin to treat SIBO. My friend was diagnosed by her ND with SIBO and Rifaximin is part of her protocol to treat it. Thank you for your wisdom on this and so many other health-related topics!

 

Michael: Hi Dr Cabral, what could cause burning/pin sensations in the hands and fit ? Tested negative on h pylori and candida. Tested positive for mold toxicity and possible sibo.

 

Michael: Hi Dr Cabral, what would cause someone to wake up about every 2 hours at night to frequently urinate?

 

Anonymous: Hi there! Thank you for all the great work that you do! It has made a huge impact on my life. I have been working on improving my gut health for almost 4 months now and I have noticed some improvements. I realized that i am extremely sensitive to lectins. I have always been but i never knew they had a name. So what i'm wondering is, can i still use oils from lectin-heavy nuts or seeds on my skin? Things like sunflower or chia seed oil? I am also trying to resolve a histamine issue that I have which came as a result of my leaky gut. So while i have eliminated high histaminr foods for a while, i am noy sure if i can still use them topically e.g with avocado hair masks. I look forward to your insights!

 

Jade: Hello, I have recently come out of having 4 months of antibiotics in hospital, plus have also come off my contraception; the hormone coil. Obviously this has sent me hrmones and metabolism into chaos, I feel so puffy and bloated and lethargic. I am such a healthy person, eat well and exercise and I can barely get out of bed! I am about to start a liver cleanse, but would you recommned this and can you suggest anything else to help? Thanks so much

 

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: 

 

Richard: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have recently been looking for a new blender and it seems like much to my surprise, all the descent premium or high end blenders have a plastic jar. After some time of doing research I had decided on purchasing the ninja but then found out that the jar of this particular blender is plastic. This is really concerning to me because it's something that I use everyday and I don't want to be ingesting chemicals from the plastic. I know a lot of these blenders claim that the plastic is BPA free but from what I understand, when BPA is not used they use other chemicals that are just as bad if not worse than BPAs. I also mix in hot water for my morning smoothies to warm them up a bit since I use a lot of frozen fruits so that would make things more problematic. I also use hot water to clean the blender since sometimes there are stains I need to remove. Is this a legitimate concern or am I missing something here? I would love to hear your thoughts on this and some potential alternatives. Thank you for all your help, it is much appreciated!

 

Kristen: Hello! I’ve learned and been helped so much through you! After a “virus” my chest feels so much pressure, I went to a cardio dr and all checks out. I do have MTHFR I read that “ Homozygous variants, and some heterozygotes, may see a decrease in the metabolic pathway that converts folate and folic acid (vitamin Bs) into active forms. There can be a build up of homocysteine (amino acid) which has been linked to cardiovascular issues. ” I’m trying to turn over every leaf to get to the bottom of the random pressure when I lay down. Is It possible they are related or is there a connection with either one of these issues. I’ve done 5 protocols in over a year with significant improvement! To which I’m soo grateful to you and your staff!

 

Darren: Good day Dr Cabral. I see un ayurveda, they extol the benefits of ghee. I use it but recently started looking at the nutrition facts label and all the grass fed New Zealand based ghee brands I have seen say they contain some trans fat. Is pure grass-fed ghee of transfat concern? ? If ghee has trans-fat, why is ghee called healthy? Or is it a misperception given New Zealand is often touted as favoured by nature when making milk, with a climate, soils, and plentiful water that generate an ideal environment for growing healthy grass and New Zealand livestock access open pasture year-round, meaning space to roam and follow their natural affinity outdoors. Care to make us understand? Thank you

 

Lori: Hi, I am considering enrolling in your certification program. I am wondering, however, how to utilize it to practice legally in IL and many other states where it seems only an RD or CNS are allowed to make nutritional recommendations to clients. Thank you! ~Lori

 

Hazel: Im at a loss for breakfast I have high oxalates, a latex alergy and spontaneous uticaria/ dermatographia. I am following your mediteranean diet Many thanks. I listen to all your podcasts

 

Cody: Hi Dr. Cabral - I get acid reflux, mild diarrhea, and intestinal pain on my left side when I eat mildly spicy or citrus foods. I was curious if I had H Pylori, and I did a stool test and upper endoscopy which both came back negative. I also did an organic acid test which showed high levels of yeast. Before I start the CBO protocol, I decided to try some supplements targeted towards H Pylori just in case due to my symptoms. I've been taking Manuka honey, 1/2 cup cabbage juice, and L. Reuteri. I was fine for 2 weeks, but I'm now starting to get intestinal pain on my left side. I was planning to add mastic gum, but I've put that on hold now. Would you recommend stopping the H Pylori supplements and starting the CBO protocol? Compared to the CBO protocol, I've taken much less potent antimicrobials/antifungals in the past which started out fine but then gradually gave me intestinal pain. This is what led me to trying a treatment targeted towards H Pylori, which testing says I don't have, in the hope that it would allow me to tolerate the CBO protocol better, but I'm already having pain which I suspect is from the strength of the Manuka honey. In addition, zinc supplements give me intestinal pain, but I also take DGL licorice which is fine. Thank you for your time and advice.

Does the future of exercise come in pill form?

 

Today I want to share with you some new research that lends insight into the connection between exercise and hunger that could pave the way to producing a pill that provides similar benefits to exercise…

 

And while I am all for scientific advancement, I feel there are some key health benefits to exercise and moving our bodies that may not have been taken into account.

 

Join me on today’s #CabralConcept 2358 where I go over exactly what this research shows and why I think exercise is still the best medicine – Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

There are many reasons someone may choose to take oral contraceptives…

 

Whether it be to prevent pregnancy, reduce PCOS symptoms, balance hormones, or a variety of other reasons.

 

It’s not my place to be telling you what you should and should not be doing, but as an Integrative Health Practitioner I feel it is important that we address the dangers of taking birth control and what to watch out for if you choose to use it.

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2357 I want to go over what your doctor won't tell you about the dangers of oral contraceptives/birth control – 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…

 

Sierra: Hi Dr. Cabral! For awhile now I have been experiencing dizziness and light headedness when walking around inside certain stores, however once I leave the store I feel better. I’ve read about it being a vestibular disorder and this condition being recognized as “supermarket disorder” or “visual vestibular mismatch”. Although it affects me the most when I’m inside stores, it also affects me when I play certain video games as well, or when I’m around a lot of people. This affects me 50% or more of the time. My question is, do you have any recommendations that may be able to help subdue the affects of this condition? Thank you!

 

Kelsey: Hello! I am wondering if you can clarify the difference between a "Reacted" supplement versus an "Elemental." I work at a place that sells practitioner grade supplements and my boss asked me if I knew the answer to that. I did not, but I thought of someone who would be better able to clarify! :) You, of course! Thank you for your help!

 

Anonymous: Is it possible for an overload of histamine to affect female hormones and cause estrogen dominance as a secondary effect? I am asking because we recently had "oakpocalypse" here in Houston (tree pollen above 12,000, which was double the previous all-time high record), and I was having symptoms of high histamine, but I also started having some symptoms of estrogen dominance (no other life or dietary changes in that time period other than the extreme allergen exposure) - when I googled this quickly, I found some articles off the bat that suggested histamine could increase estrogen, so I wanted to hear your expertise and any recommendations for what someone should do if this happens (other than your standard allergy advice ex. Vit. C, quercetin, bromelain, preventing allergens from entering home, Nettie pot, etc.)

 

Karim: What would you say is worse, Coke Zero or glass of wine? Hahaha. Sorry if it sounds silly but I’m just interested in your point of view.

 

Marnie: Hi Dr Cabral-I will be having an Inspire implant placed for sleep apnea. I will be having antibiotics perioperatively and postoperative. What must I do to protect my microbiome? Thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge. You are a Godsend! 

 

Jordan: Hey Cabral! This is kind of an odd question. I have been having extremely frequent sleep paralysis and muscle numbness ever since I got covid. I know I am not alone in this as I know someone else that has been going through this as well. I have seen that there is now new research seeing a correlation between the two. I’m just wondering if you have any suggestions regarding sleep paralysis. Thanks!

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: 

 

Anonymous: Hi. Thanks so much for taking our questions on your show. I love hearing other people get their answers and learning while I listen. I heard on a previous show that fine lines or wrinkles around the mouth area is not a result of aging but from other causes. I am only 47 and have recently (within the last two years) noticed a significant increase in vertical lines around both my upper and lower lips. Is this from nutrient deficiencies or something else? I did the big 5 labs, have been working with an Equilife IHP, and have been using your products now for 8 months. I was hoping the increased nutrition plus protocols I've completed (21 day detox, CBO, parasites, heavy metal) would have helped but the lines just keep getting more noticeable. Is there any way to get these to go away or can I only hope to keep them from getting worse? Thank you so much for your help!

 

Wendy: Hi Dr Stephen, can i ask if EMS training is beneficial for weight loss, especially for people over 45 years old? Doing lots of high intensity activities may not be suitable for people aged 45 and above.

 

Paloma: Thank you so much and your team for all your hard work every single day! I was wondering whether some PMS symptoms are normal or does it always indicate hormonal imbalances?

 

Paloma: Me again! I once asked you whether you thought cardio was necessary if I got my 10k steps every day + 4x a week resistance training with bands & free weights and you said it wasn't. I'm a 25 year old Vata so I don't like doing a lot of cardio because I lose muscle very easily. You've been speaking a lot about cardio recently so I'm wondering whether your answer would be different now? I don't have a lot of free time so to implement some jogging or biking would mean taking out 1 or 2 days of resistance training…

 

Tina: First off thank you and your team for all you do. I am a 53 years old. I did the big 5, the gut and bacteria test, and mold test. I am 12 weeks into my protocol working with an IHP level 2. I have done the 14 day functional detox. I am 8 weeks into the CBO protocol. I just finished the intestinal cleanse. I did a parasite cleanse and liver flush. My morning cortisol is very low and my evening cortisol is very high. Thyroid was a little high. I’ve been taking supplements to support my hormones and I have been doing the deep sleep protocol because I was experiencing really bad insomnia. I still continue to wake up at least four times a night. I’m very thirsty, I wake up startled, I wake up starving , and of course then I have to go to the bathroom because I have been drinking. I’ve been doing the deep sleep protocol, I’ve been wearing blue blockers before bed. I recently bought a lief device because my HRV is very very low. On average my number is 16. I also still have very bad Reynards. My fingertips go numb and purple. I also have this scab in my nose that clears up but then comes back quickly. TPOab is 32. Which is very very low. Any other suggestions on what I could be doing? Is my rain barrel that full? Do I need to keep doing functional detoxes? Could it be lyme? Thank you !!

 

Ryan: Hey doc Cabral. Wanted to ask a question regarding Graves’ disease vs hashimotos. When testing thyroid antibodies, i recently heard Amy myers say TSH receptor antibodies is more telling of graves and the thyroid peroxidase and thyroglobulin markers are more telling for hashi’s I wanted your thoughts on this, as I am testing these markers every few months in conjunction with near daily red light therapy exposure to thyroid. I did see a reduction in TPO antibodies from about 158 in November last year to 45 this past February. So it is cool to think that it may be lowered due to that exposure. I am a previous Graves patient. But will be looking to get the TSH receptor antibody test next time. Have you seen red light therapy work for these issues? Have you ever noticed any difference in testing those anti body markers for different patients? If TPO is lowering is that a sign that inflammation as a whole for the thyroid is lowering?

But it doesn't have to be that way - I fully plan to be as active and healthy as I am today when I am well into my 80s.

 

Today I want to share a very important study that outlines how you can predict if disease is in your future and also understand your risk for early death (and how to prevent it)…

 

Join me on today’s #CabralConcept 2349 where I break down the 18 Biomarkers that predict early death and what you can do to reduce your risk – Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

We all have stories that we tell ourselves…

 

Whether we learned them as children or developed them through life experiences as an adult, these stories shape who we are today.

 

While most of these stories have allowed us to get to where we are today, it is important to note that oftentimes they hold us back from reaching the goals we have set for ourselves.

 

The good news is that YOU are the one telling the story which means YOU can change it!

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2348 I want to share with you how to recognize the stories that are holding you back and what you can do to move forward – 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…

 

Anonymous: I wrote in on FB and your support email and was referred to ask here. Can you tell me why the Omega 3 capsules and liquid has different EPA/DHA ratios and the liquid has added DPA. What would be the reason a person would select one option or the other besides not wanting a capsule or liquid?

 

Rani: I have searched the podcast archives and haven't found anything on this topic so I was wondering if you could touch on it. Could you explain the reticuloendothelial system (RES)? Specifically the iron recycling system. I see many practitioners talk about the iron recycling system & how supplementing with iron is unnecessary and possibly dangerous. I would love to get your explanation on this topic. Thank you as I value your knowledge and wisdom.

 

Samantha: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you for your time. 10 years ago I had what I thought was painful dermatitis/eczema on my hands, but looks like Chilblains. 2 years ago, my family and I found out we had mold toxicity and are still working through protocol with a functional practitioner (my suspicion is years ago, chilblains was my first symptom from an overactive immune response due to the unknown ongoing mold exposure). Do you have any insight on what root cause(s) is for chilblains and if it’s related to histamine and what can be done to heal from the disease, not just manage it. Thank you, Samantha

 

Alicja (Ah-leets-yah): Hi Dr. Cabral, My question today is about protocols and sleep. I started CBO protocol and my sleep got worse. Every day when I took CBO supplements I woke up between 3:00-3:30 am. When I'm up at this time - there is no chance for me to go back to sleep. I took a break from the supplements and my sleep went back to normal. I'm not sure what that means. Meantime I got my stool test results that detected one protozoa (Entamoeba coli) so I decided to do parasite protocol. The same thing happened. I started taking supplements (Para Support) and I started waking up between 3:00-3:30am. What do you think is happening? Any thoughts how to work around that? I need my sleep for proper healing. As always I appreciate your help and thank you greatly!

 

Alicja (Ah-leets-yah):One more question: My test results also showed I have very low levels of pancreatic enzyme: elastase. (It should be more than 200 ug/mL and I only have 28) I take digestive enzymes with every meal. Is there anything else I could do? Do you think HCL would be better for me? Or should I take HCL together with digestive enzymes? Is low elastase reversible or most likely I'm gonna be stuck with low numbers for the rest of my life and rely on digestive enzymes for the rest of my life too? I would love to hear your thoughts. I trust your knowledge very much. Thank you for you your amazing work.

 

Summer: Hi Dr. Cabral! I’d love to hear your thoughts on plant based protein powders. I don’t know if I can use actual company names or not, but I’ve used Genuine Health and Sun Warrior over the last few years and I notice that I CAN tolerated plant based protein in a powder but CANNOT tolerate most plant proteins in whole food form. Looks like both companies are calling their products fermented which also raises a couple of questions. I know you suggest cutting anything fermented if you have gut dysbiosis, but how could any of those ‘good healthy’ fermented bacteria survive the processing required to make these powders? So is it necessary to cut these powders with gut dysbiosis? Is the purpose of the fermentation in these cases meant to purely break down the plant into a more digestible form rather than trying to use it to repopulate the gut with good fermented bacteria as you would do with homemade ferments like sauerkraut? I can understand that it might help break down the plant, but I don’t see how any good bacteria would ever survive that processing. Thanks so much, and have a great day!

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: 

 

Zoe: Hi there! Just listened your episode “how to cure constipation” as I am constipated right now. You mentioned that you would recommend an international cleanse. I didn’t see the brand in the show notes. Could you please tell me which brand you recommend for that? Also I have already purchased the 21 day detox. Should I do a intensional cleanse first and then detox? Or is it okay to just start with the detox? I am getting my hormonal birth control out on the 22nd so I was planning on starting the detox on the day of removal or next day.

 

Anonymous: Dr. Cabral, by the time you answer this, I will have completed the CBO protocol and likely be continuing through the CBO Finisher. I am currently beginning month 3 of the CBO and have a need for more improvements in my constipation/trapped gas symptoms. I have been very diligent, and followed the protocol exactly as recommended. I tried the intestinal cleanse on week 6 and experienced the constipation and lack of motility in over two years, and I took the binder and 4 capsules 3x per day for 5 days with only one bowel movement. If this protocol does not provide any improvements, where do I go from here? What testing do you recommend? (I did the HMTA and Stool Test leading into the CBO). Thank you!!

 

Samantha: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you for all that you do! I would love your insight. I'm a 30-year-old woman from New York. I recently had surgery on my right side Bartholin gland. I had an allergic reaction to either the anesthesia or intravenous antibiotics they gave me during the procedure. I'm seeing an allergist in a few weeks to figure that out. I had dermatitis that spread all over my torso, chest, arms, and back; it was pretty severe. A dermatologist prescribed me a ten-day taper protocol of Prednisone (which was really intense!). At the time of writing this, I'm done with the Prednisone and the bumps from the allergic reaction are gone, but I'm still SO itchy and I'm breaking out in hives. The itching feels like it's coming from the inside out if that makes sense. Actually scratching the area doesn't provide relief. I've been diagnosed with mast cell activation syndrome and I'm listening to your previous podcasts about it now. I've also been taking allergy medication and eating a low histamine diet. This combination provides very slight relief. I feel hopeless and want to feel like myself again. Thank you for any guidance that you may have. With Gratitude, Samantha

 

Stefanie: Hi Dr. Cabral, You are truly amazing! I love all that you do and am so appreciated for finding equi.life and these podcasts! You are a blessing I have had hypothyroidism and addison's disease for 5 years. Recently my doctor discovered that I also have Polythemia Vera. In your experience have you seen all of these diseases to be related? I'm trying to find the right direction on how to naturally lower my red blood cell count without having to take blood medication to lower this. Have you worked with patients with polythemia vera? I would love any advice on where to begin healing this blood disorder.

 

Cassie: Hi Dr Cabral. Thank you for all you do for everyone here. It’s appreciate by so many of us! I have this “anxiety rash” is what my doctor labeled it as, but it happens with any heightened emotion, happy or sad and when I’m nervous. It starts on my neck and moves to my chest and when it’s really bad it goes to my arms. Splotches on my face can appear too and my cheeks are always sort of red anyways. Sometimes a trigger is as simple as a customer at work complimenting me, and I feel it happening, which I don’t really understand. Or being excited about something. Not all the time, but sometimes it can feel like a rush of adrenaline. It’s come to the point where I feel uncomfortable in my own skin and I’ve hidden it for years by not wearing shirts or anything that goes below my collar bones or people always ask what’s wrong. I’m getting married this summer and it makes me nervous I’m going to be a red mess because I know I’ll feeling all the emotions that day. Doctors have just thrown anxiety meds at me, and that is not what I’m looking for. I am a very active person, exercise a lot and eat pretty healthy, I have noticed the healthier I eat the better it is but I can’t figure out triggers with food. Any advice is so greatly appreciated! Thank you, Cassie

 

Marleen: My bloodwork showed high B12 but I don't supplement how is this possible?

Over 70% of people in developed nations are overweight, yet somehow most are undernourished…

 

In our fast-paced world filled with quick fixes and over-processed food, it’s easy to understand that many people are overconsuming calories, but the food they are eating is lacking in the sufficient micro nutrients that their bodies need.

 

Recently I was asked to consult on a project and provide insight into the macros and micros needed for daily consumption and advise my thoughts on when and if supplements were needed.

 

On today’s #CabralConcept 2344 I’d like to share with you some of the research from this project and how to ensure that you are providing your body with the essential micro nutrients that it needs- Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought and if you have any questions!
