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: 

 

Bec: Hey Stephen! I have a 5 week old little girl and I was wondering if it is safe to use my Joovv red light panel on her to reset her circadian rhythm and help her build her melatonin? If so what time of day would be best and for how long? And if not, what age would it be safe for her to start using it?

 

Angela: My mother is 83 years old and suffering from Parkenson's. She is on Levo/Cabidopa, Aspirin, Calcium, Vit D3 (but only 2000 iu). She weighs about 135 lbs so I believe she needs more Vit D3. She is also on iron and Modafinil. I believe the Modafinil is to help with her daytime sleepiness. She struggles with drinking enough water and gets constipated (probably from the iron too) and frequent UTIs as well. She fell for the 2nd time and broke her hip again so she is wheel chair bound, and movement is very minimal. All in all she is a hot mess and it's really hard to watch her decline this way. What would you suggest for someone that age and at that level of fragility?

 

Ryan: Hello Doc, Wanted to see if you could briefly explain the connection or potential of albumin binding to testosterone and lowering the free levels of test in the body. My albumin has chronically been about a 5 or 5.1. My total testosterone has always been high, but my free doesn’t seem optimal. I’m 31 and just looking to see what I can do naturally. I’m an IHP 2 so I understand the basics of increasing testosterone naturally. But wanted to hear your thoughts on albumin and testosterone connection, how can we lower albumin levels to a better range. Lower protein? Lower sodium? Any genetic issues I should look into? Liver or kidney? Etc. Thanks!

 

Emily: Hi Dr. Cabral! I am wondering if you could share your thoughts on sorbitol intolerance, how to test for it, and how to treat it? I have been diagnosed with IBS in the past (which was an unhelpful diagnosis at best) and have recently been wondering if I may snuggle with sorbitol intolerance as well, which I have not been tested for. My thinking about this stems from the intense gas, bloating, diarrhea, and abdominal discomfort I have been struggling with daily lately. These symptoms are not new for me, however, I have noticed they are more intense and frequent lately, and am wondering if this is connected to my increased sorbitol consumption over the summer from stone fruits (peaches, plums, nectarines…). Thank you for your work! I am saving up now to take Levels 1&2 IHP:)

 

Sara: Hi there, I love your podcast - thank you for your work! Does fasting help the clean up of damage from chronic alcohol abuse on the body and brain? Thank you! Sara

 

Linden: Hi there! I would love any help I can get for lowering Candida while living in mold. Unfortunately I have no other option but to be in this environment for a few more months, but I’m dealing with pretty intense Candida and I know mold/mycotoxins can really fuel it’s overgrowth. Any recommendations on a diet approach to keeping it as low as possible & other ways to support my body while I live here? Thank you so much!!

 
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!

I was reading a post on social media the other day that provided an interesting take on Blue Zone cultures…

 

While none of these cultures follow a specific “protocol” they all share similarities and a strong focus on nutrition.

 

Surprisingly a vast majority of their diet comes from starchy foods and yet they are typically not overweight, nor do they suffer from most of the diseases you find in western-based cultures.

 

So, on today’s #CabralConcept 2518 let’s find out how these Blue Zone longevity cultures eat so many carbs - 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…

 

Brad: Have you heard anything about vedicinals9 in terms of treating long covid or prevention altogether? My family and I have had covid 5 or more times since March of 2020 even though we try and keep our immune system on the up and up. I’m beginning to wonder if the effects of having covid are becoming more taxing on my body as time goes by. I’ve read good reports on vedicinals9 and would like to gather your thoughts. Thank you and look forward to hearing from you, Brad

 

Joesph: Hey doc hope all is well. I’m 48 and a very active person I hit the gym a few days a week and play hockey a few days a week. I’d like to know why whenever I have a pulled or strained muscle or if I just over did it at the gym the pain seems to bother me most in the middle of the night. Thanks

 

Michelle: Dear Dr. Cabral, I am a lactation consultant and RN working in a hospital/clinic setting. I encourage breastfeeding as much as I can and consider it the best start for babies, when possible. But not every woman makes enough milk, even with all the efforts! Various reasons such as infertility, PCOS, diabetes, obesity can affect milk production. I often have women that really don’t want to feed formula, but their baby needs supplementation. Is there a formula you would recommend, or do you have any suggestions as to what to look for in an infant formula? I appreciate any input you have! Thank you!

 

Eva: What is the cause of granuloma annulare? How do you get rid of it?

 

Gina: Hi Dr Cabral! I am looking for advice regarding fast heart rate that seems to mimic POTS- it'll go up to 130+ about 10 mins after eating a meal especially lunch + especially going from sitting to standing. Sometimes just by walking outside or going up and down a few stairs. My RHR is in the 60s and overnight goes into the 50s. Seen a cardiologist, all clear. HTMA showed high calcium, electrolytes under 4. Cortisol/hormones test; cortisol AM high (18) but the rest of the day + night cortisol normal. Progesterone high, estrogen + other hormones normal + ratios all normal. Added mag, natural Gatorade, multi, C, D, zinc, plan to start adrenal soothe but worried bc of the 3 normal cortisol readings. Wondering what you think I should do next and if you think adrenal soothe is ok? Ty so much!!

 

Kayla: Hi Dr.Cabral, I just want to start off by saying thank you for all that you do, your podcasts give me hope everyday! So I’ve done two labs (starter kit) and have been working with one of your IHP coaches (she’s great!) I’ve done the 7 day detox & I am now on the parasite protocol it’s my second week: here’s my question I suffer from psoriasis and have occasional (couple times a day) anal itching & fissures, doctors keep telling me it’s related to psoriasis the itching, and the fissure due to constipation which I am not. I can’t shake off my negative thoughts that it’s something worse, and every time I look down there I can’t see anything but some fissures and a bit of swelling. Is this really related to Candida and parasites? My Candida levels on my lab results weren’t that high ..

 

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: 

 

Rob:  Hi Doc, me again. Sorry forgot to ask about my blood sugar. I've been wearing a CGM for almost 2 months now and I was shocked how I was basically pre-diabetic. Fasting glucose was about 120 and it could spike all the way up to 180 after eating my prep meal which could involve something like lentils, sweet potato and peas + olive oil. I have gone to a completely starch free diet where I'm eating plenty of cruciferous veg, pulses. 20g+ protein in every meal and healthy fats. No fruits, grains or starches such as sweet potato. I do have a cheat meal per week and anytime I try to add a starch, my blood glucose spikes again. Am I supposed to be on a starch free diet forever? Why is my fasting glucose still around over 100 when I'm not eating any starches? This is so confusing. Bearing in mind that I already get my 10k steps and I'm generally moving after my meals (washing dishes). Please help, I'm so lost.

 

Anonymous: Hello, I'm 38 years old and my Dexa Scan came back with upsetting results. I have -2.0 T score in my spine which is significantly decreased from 2 years ago. I am wondering if you know anything about CalZbone (Cissus quadrangularis) supplement or IMD supplements (which have an Oseto product containing this). I am worried about putting things into my body if I don't know about any potential side effects, especially long term. At the same time i'm working on my nutririon, i'm working with an endocrinologist for on my hormones and thyroid (which have been a mess for years), i'm also working on increasing the amount of calcium in my diet and making sure I have adequate Vitamin D and K. Any feedback about CalZbone, or about suggestions to make sure I can reverse this bone loss would be wonderful. Also, your amazing and use many of your supplements daily including DNS, Adrenal Soothe and Thyroid Support. Thank you for all you do!

 

Casey: Hello I tried to submit a question and it keeps rejecting my submission so I was hoping I could send it here! Thank you so much for anything you can do to help. Here is my question: Hi there! Do you have any recommendations for chalazion cysts in the eye? My poor mama keeps getting them and they’re doing repeat surgeries monthly and putting her on antibiotics each time and just say it’s part of life now which has to be bs. I’m going to sign her up to be a client with you but hoping there was something she can do in the meantime! Thank you for all you do!

 

Mary: After reading and listening to all of your info on hair loss, trying to get to the root cause of mine (all over scalp thinning). In your experience, is it possible to experience hair loss after adding T3 medication (low, at 5 mg)? It does say it's a potential side-effect. I was already on NP thyroid 90 mg. with TSH of 2.3, FT3 of 2.7, FT4 of .9, TPO 11, TGA <1. I know it's "suboptimal", but I don't have too many hypothyroid symptoms though - just inability to lose weight. When I added T3, it suppressed my TSH to .78 and my thought was that I turned off more of my own thyroid production without providing enough T3 to compensate? The other issue may be that I started BHRT testosterone at about the same time. Total testosterone when from 15 to 30, Free testosterone went from 1.1 to 2.3, but dihydrotestosterone was still <5 ng/DL. I'm at a loss - so hard to narrow down because of the delayed reaction of hair loss - just trying to figure out what is most likely so I can stop whatever it is and see if the hair loss declines! Thank you for all you do! Loving the Detox, will be starting CBO!

 

Fiona: Good morning! I would love for you to review the book Glucose Revolution by Jessie Inchauspé . It’s a very easy to read book and it would be great to hear your thoughts on the author’s approach to reducing glycaemic variability.

Research shows that people who use mouthwash are almost 50% more likely to develop diabetes than those who don’t…

 

I was blown away by the amount of research that indicates the detrimental effects that mouthwash has on the body (including high blood pressure)…

 

By killing off the good bacteria in your mouth you alter the natural balance in your body and open yourself up to a variety of issues…

 

So, on today’s #CabralConcept 2511 I want to share with you this unbelievable research on how mouthwash causes diabetes & high blood pressure - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

We are coming up on the time of year when we will be inundated by new diet fads…

 

One of the major things we will continue to hear is that we need to be eating more butter, eggs, milk, and meat like our ancestors did…

 

But, if we look at the science and research on the longest-lived people is this really the diet that will provide us with the longevity and health we are looking for?

 

We will explore this topic and much more on today’s #CabralConcept 2510 where I go over why following the diet of your ancestors may be detrimental to your health and share why these aren’t the same as your grandparent’s foods - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

It’s that time of year when we reflect on the past and look toward the new year ahead of us…

 

And my wish for you is to create something meaningful and memorable that allows you to grow and become the person you are meant to be.

 

But before you can do that you must first become the person who feels they are deserving of this dream, set a plan to achieve it, and then go after it…

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2509 I want to break down the “12 Week Year” for you so you can understand that reaching that goal is attainable and how to get started on becoming the person you want to be - 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…

 

Lorena: What are your thoughts on Anti EMR paint? Would you say it’s legit at blocking emf?

 

Bridgette: Hi Stephen Cabral, I am a student of yours taking the integrative health practitioner course. I can't thank you enough for all of the work you have done and continue to do. I thank God for you. I am thoroughly enjoying this course and am in awe with how much prep work you have done for us all. I can't thank you enough! I am physically feeling the best I have felt in years! I have a question regarding Maslow's hierarchy of needs. For the basic physiological needs, you mention sex being one of them and I was wondering if you would elaborate on this. Please forgive me as this isn't exactly a health question but I would really love some deeper clarity if possible, as I have struggled for years with knowing how exactly I want to relate to sex and intimacy. I am 32 years old and have been so disconnected from intimacy and sex, I seem to always be asking myself if this is whats healthiest for me. I don't know what the answer is. Can you please explain why sex is one of the basic physiological needs? Of course it's needed for pro-creation, but is it actually needed and necessary to be a balanced healthy happy being, climbing the pyramid to self-actualization? I would really love to hear your thoughts. Like I mentioned above, I have been confused about this for years. Thanks!

 

Sarah: Hi Dr Cabral, thank you for all you do, I have learned so much from you. I have a friend who’s son has just been diagnosed with pethres disease. I can’t find anything on this and I wondered what your thoughts were on it and what you would do if your daughter had it? I appreciate you, thank you.

 

Sara: Hey Dr. Cabral what do you think about using castor oil while you’re in the sauna for additional detox support combined with heat?

 

Tamara: What do you think for a post menopausal women taking strontium? My doctor recommended it after my bone density test came back borderline for osteoporosis. I am now taking calmag and DNS shake everyday along with this product. Wondering what you thought about this product and vs your bone supplement. Thanks for everything you do.

 

Rob: Hi Doc! I hope you can help me as I've been feeling very confused lately. I've ran all of my labs and I've done all protocols: 21 day detox, CBO, heavy metal, take my DNS, omega 3, vitamin D, mag-cal, zinc etc every day. I'm 32 year old Vata/Pitta, eat mostly plant-based with approx 60g of protein everyday. All organic. My labs show high estrogen and Adrenal phase 3 (burnout). I have a corporate job so I'm not surprised about the burnout and I've been making some lifestyle changes such as quitting strength training for now and just doing yoga and 10k steps and 1h meditation everyday. So I'm working hard to elevate those cortisol levels again but I'm confused about the high estrogen. I probably eat soy twice a week from tofu but that's pretty much eat and I'm not really exposed to any xenoestrogens since everything at home is natural. No oestrogen-based red meat either... Help?

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: 

 

Alyssa: My daughter (2 years old) has developed severe food allergies to peas, lentils, green beans and most recently sesame and chickpeas. We had to use her epi pen for sesame and chickpeas about 4 months ago and these were foods she had previously without any reaction. Fortunately we had her EpiPen for the previous known allergies so we were able to address the multi systemic reaction to the sesame and chickpeas. We have been working with her pediatrician, an allergist, and also a local ND and have incorporated D3, fish oil and acacia powder into her diet along with her probiotics (variety, sometimes I give her the ones I get from you) and a multivitamin. She had eczema as a baby so I put her on a gluten and dairy free diet and the skin issues seem to clear up. Not wanting to restrict a toddler‘s diet too much, we incorporated the dairy and gluten back in. I strive for Whole-based foods, fruits and vegetables, but she can be a very picky eater and most of the gluten and dairy free items such as the cheese she used to eat has chickpea or pea protein in it. What else can I do for my 2-year-old to make sure we never have to use the epi pen again? Any tests or protocols okay for her age to find out what’s happening w/ her immune system? She is 25lbs.

 

Natasha: Hi Dr Cabral, thank you for all the incredible work you do! As a former patient of yours, and now student in IHP2, I’m a big fan of your work and mission. As I will soon be working with clients as an IHP and recommending protocols, I would love to be able to recommend the DNS. However, I recently purchased it to use myself after years of being away from it, and am surprised at the “other ingredients.” I am curious to learn why natural flavors are included (versus pure extracts for flavor) and what those consist of, as well as sugar and salt? I’m surprised they are included at all, but They don’t even say coconut sugar, Himalayan salt, or one of the other “clean versions” of these ingredients. These are all ingredients I tell my clients to watch out for so I know there would be questions involved if I recommend a product that includes them, and would love to have more insight to help explain that. Thank you in advance, looking forward to hearing back!

 

Anonymous: Hi, hope you’re well… What do you think about yoni pearls? Thank you, have a great week ahead!

 

Simon: Hi Dr Cabral, I’ve been tracking my sleep for the last 18 months with an OURA ring. My deep sleep is quite good however I appear to get very little REM sleep (typically 15-45min). Apart from sleep timing, are you aware of any supplements or practices which affect amount of REM sleep you get? Thanks!

 

Ryan: Hey Doc. I have gone through IHP 1-2, done all of the protocols for improved health that equi life has to offer besides the mold. My question is in regards to deviated septum’s and wanted to get your latest take since I know you deal with it as well. I believe I was born with mine. Obviously I focus on gut health and lowering histamine. That does reduce some inflammation. But even at my best, my left nostril just cannot oxygenate very well. I have a cone beam scan that shows the reduced airways which I got done to check on my oral health. I do not want surgery but really want a better option than what I got. What’s frustrating is when I do cardio, such as HIIT sprints. My recovery is so much fast if I pull a part my nostrils in between sets. That alone does make me consider surgery to widen it. Because of the major difference I feel when I peel my nostrils out. This must have a dramatic impact on stress in my body if I can’t breath well naturally. Is there a directory for finding holistic ENTs or something of the sort?

 

Natalie: What do you think about sole water and are there benefits to drinking a tsp of it in your water daily?

Here’s the problem with “average...”

 

What feels like average to one person may not be the same for another…

 

And the real trouble with average is that it’s a slippery slope…

 

If you are willing to accept it in one area of your life it tells the mind you are willing to accept less and in return that is what you will get…

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2502 I want to go over why you shouldn’t settle for being average in any area of your life - 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…

 

Stacey: Hello Dr. Cabral I first want to say how much I’m enjoying your podcasts and learning so much . I have a lot of bad symptoms due to POTS/ dysautonomia that was diagnosed 4 years ago but I have been suffering for 16 years with lots of other symptoms and by far my worst symptom is extreme sensory sensitivity… the smallest things like running into a friend at the grocery store and saying high gives me a seizure type feeling.. I feel as if my eyes will roll behind my head and I get super hot and loose the ability to say certain words .. it’s absolutely horrible and has robbed my life . I’m in the process of doing the big 5 and praying it will help .. in the mean time what are your top supplements you recommend to calm the nervous system down ? I feel like I’m a hermit unable to go to movies , ball games , dinner parties ect … family & friends don’t understand what I’m going through at all and it’s extremely depressing . Thanks for all your help .

 

Priya: Hi Dr. C! Love your show. I was wondering if you have multiple issues, ie. H. Pylori, Gut Bacteria, Heavy metals, candida etc. which issue/program do you start with first? Would you start with detoxing heavy metals first?

 

Tory: Hi Dr. Cabral! About a year ago my daughter(4) was unofficially diagnosed with periodic fever syndrome by an infectious disease doctor. She was experiencing very frequent fevers up to a week long, every month or more. Since seeing a functional chiropractor and my own extensive research the fevers have mostly subsided with vitamin C, D3+k2 and vitamin A supplementation daily. Her tonsils were/still are quite large. I’m curious if there is more I should be doing to support her immune system/shrink her tonsils. (She has never been v) (we also opted to not remove the tonsils)

 

Anonymous: Hi Dr. Cabral! Thank you so much for all the knowledge you share with us! You are truly a blessing! I have struggled with histamine and salicylate intolerance for a while now. I am mostly okay when i avoid my trigger foods but I want to fully heal. I can't currently afford lab testing, so i have had to do a lot of guessing to figure out what is going on with me. I took out all the foods i am sensitive too and i have improved my lifestyle to offer my body more rest and reduce toxicities. I recently started taking XXXXX, a probiotic formulated for people with histamine intolerance, and i have had a lot of digestive discomfort taking it, as well as fatigue and skin rashes. I then used activated charcoal since i suspected i was dealing with die off and that helped a bit but not much. Similarly, i have had negative reactions to other supplements. Methylated bvitamins and methyl folate for histamine intolerance made me depressed and gave me severe fatigue. L-glutamine also made me really depressed. Omega 3 supplements made my histamine intolerance worse. Multivitamins with herbs trigger my salicylate sensitivity. I am really struggling to figure out how I can give my body the nutrients it needs(The only veggies i can currently eat are cabbage) Any advice :) ?

 

Jen: Hi, I just did a lab test that showed my industrial toxicant level of 2-hydroxybutyric acid (2HIB) was extremely high (off the charts!). What could this be caused by if not from groundwater and what would you suggest to clear this from my system? I feel like the level is so high it can’t possibly be solely from water I’m showering with since we never drink tap, ever! My husband and I are currently starting a 7 day cabral detox followed by CBO and CBO finisher as both our levels of arabinose were quite high. I’m doing all this testing to further investigate what’s causing me to constantly feel nauseous and have mild stomach aches almost daily. Thank you for your input. I absolutely love your podcast and listen to them daily on my drive to work. I’ve enrolled in IHP level 1 and can’t wait to complete it so I can get into the meat in level 2!

 

Emily: Hi Dr. Cabral! Could you explain the shikimate pathway and how it’s affected by glyphosate. Thank you! Emily

Dec 10, 2022

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: 

 

Margie: Hi Dr. Cabral! My questions are about Vit A toxicity. In April I started using a retinol cream at night then developed dry lips that eventually became cracked, bleeding, and painful in July! I also experienced general dryness in my mouth, eyes, and bowels. After listening to your podcast about what your lips tell about your health, I realized that it was the retinol cream & stopped using it immediately. My Vit A history includes 3 treatments of Accutane. It makes sense that adding retinol to my night time routine finally “tipped that scale”, overloading my liver. I’ve done 2 CBO protocols & several detoxes since 2018. Before I realized that the cream was the source of my problems, I did a 7-day detox & noticed that my lips worsened esp. during the 2 days of fasting. I stopped using the DNS powder, all supplements that listed Vit A on the label & stopped eating foods known to have high levels of Vit A. After several weeks, my symptoms improved. I heard you mention in a podcast that you were going to talk about a low Vitamin A diet but haven’t been able to find anything on that topic. What would a low Vitamin A diet consist of? Once my lips are completely healed, would it be safe to resume DNS, supplements, & foods with Vit A? Thanks a bunch!

 

Paula: Hello and thank you for all that you do Dr Cabral! My 77 yr old mother has had intermittent amnesia episodes for over 13 years now, occurring on average 3 to 4 times per year. She has had extensive testing with no definitive outcome. Tests & scans looking at epilepsy, blood supply to the brain & heart were normal. There have been no head traumas that she is aware of in the past. I have recently started looking into it further myself and have come across a condition called Global Transient Amnesia which describes her symptoms almost exactly. When having an "episode" as she calls them, she loses short term memory for about 1/2 an hour and has no idea what she was doing at the time, nor what has happened in her recent past. She is still able to perform normal functions and is alert and very aware that the episode is happening but is just unable to recall anything from days/weeks prior for about 25 minutes or so which is distressing for her. Her memory returns gradually over that time and is then often very tired afterward. I am wondering if there could be an underlying issue that could be causing this and if you recommend any functional testing? She has been taking Ginkgo Biloba and liquid magnesium on and off for years without any notable differences. Thanks so much in advance.

 

Dani: Hi Dr cabral, grateful for your work and would love to hear your thoughts. A few months ago I had my first eczema and dermatitis flare up since 2019 when I healed my gut and rebalanced my body with my naturopath. The dermatitis is on my face, either seborrheic or perioral. I have used native and no pong deodorants for years but they irritated and inflamed the eczema on my armpits, it was very painful so I didn't apply anything all winter (based in Aus). My first though was gut-skin connection so I've been using a gut powder. Also ran the big 5 (just have one more test to do). Have already received my intolerance test back as it felt urgent to me but everything was fine on it (not one intolerance?!) I finished the 21 day detox last week. Still some dermatitis on my face, and I just tried some Bicarb free no pong Deodorant and a few hours later a rash and itching started. So now I'm wondering what other causes should I be looking at for this skin flare up. I'm sure I'll get some more answers from my big 5 but I was hoping it would have been something as simple as the food intolerance which I've experienced in the past. I do have some hormonal issues which were the main reason for my big 5 but wasn't sure if that could be a link to my eczema. Thanks again, appreciate you!

 

Luis: Hi Dr. Cabral, I wanted to get your thoughts on the Salt Water Flush. I believe this is also a ayurvedic practice, but I could be wrong. It involves drinking about a pint of warm to hot water, with about 2 table spoons of salt (pink or sea salt). After some time, it will purge the contents of the intestines until the water eventually comes out clear. The only downside I know of is that it may cause electrolyte imbalances, but replenishing those isn't a problem for me. I have done this many times over the past few years, but wanted your opinion on this procedure as well. Thanks for all you do!

 

Nikki: Hi Dr. Cabral, -I’m 55 yo female, mainly vata with some kapha, exercising 6 days weekly, 5’6” 112 lbs. -I’ve done the 21 day detox and the 7 day detox 3 times this past year. I’ve also done the Big 5 Labs and neurotransmitter test. I have candida and yeast overgrowth along with several food sensitivities (probably from leaky gut). I’ve done the CBO protocol with citricidal drops, noticing digestive improvement only while on the citricidal drops. Each time I introduced new foods I had gas, bloating and loose stools throughout the remainder of the CBO protocol so I didn’t keep eating them. -I then did the 3 day stool test (no h-Pylori or parasites), spoke with one of your health coaches and did the Limited Yeast protocol with the citricidal drops but continued to have the bloating, gas and loose stools after introducing new foods so, I'm still not eating anything off the sensitive gut guide except for once or twice a week when I try a new food. I take Healthy Belly 3 x daily and Healthy Gut Support each morning along with digestive enzymes when I try new foods. -I’ve done the Para Protocol, Intestinal Cleanse and Heavy Metal Detox. -My hormones are still not aligned although I’ve taken the Equilife estrogen and progesterone supplements-presumable my digestion isn’t able to absorb the nutrients from the supplements. I also tried seed cycling but my digestive problems worsened. -I have restless leg which is somewhat helpful with magnesium cream. I take cal/mag at dinner and full spectrum magnesium at bedtime. I drink 2 DNS shakes daily. -I also have the antiphospholipid syndrome and take fish oils which has kept my platelets in range. -My right thumb is constantly swollen and in pain. -My stomach acid was slightly low so I’ve been taking 3 Betaine HCL daily but haven’t noticed any improvement in digestion. -My allergies (of 52 yrs) are better since eliminating dairy in January and I’m not on meds any longer, just Quercitin 3 x daily. -My health coach says to do another round of the CBO protocol and that should help so I’ll be doing that again and will just be finishing when you get this. I’m concerned I will still feel the same and won’t be able to introduce foods I can actually continue eating without problems. -Please let me know if you have any thoughts you think may help.

Last week I went over a new research article that detailed certain ways in which you can extend your life expectancy by over 3 years…

 

I truly believe that if the study was longer, that number could be increased by 8-10 years.

 

Today I wanted to focus in on one part of the study that I find to be crucial.

 

In the stressful world we live in, we have to find ways to reduce our fight or flight reaction, lower cortisol levels, and calm the nervous system.

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2497 I want to go over the relaxation response and how you can easily incorporate this into your daily routine in just 10-20 minutes - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!
