It has been estimated that over 50% of the world's population have low vitamin D levels…

 

I am not surprised by this figure as we consistently see insufficient vitamin D levels on new client labs every day.

 

Vitamin D is a critical component in almost all important functions in the body and low levels can manifest with a variety of symptoms.

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2496 I want to go over what the symptoms of low vitamin D are, ways you can increase your levels, and which Vitamin D foods are best - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

We all have the potential to be, do, and have all that we want in this life…

 

We may start out with big dreams and goals, however, the voice in our head begins to quiet over time and we start to settle for smaller dreams.

 

Fear and uncertainty take hold and we forgo taking the next steps toward our goals because we are unsure how or if it’s going to work out.

 

But on today’s #CabralConcept 2495 I want to share with you the path you can take to develop confidence in yourself and how to overcome uncertainty & go after your dreams - 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…

 

Simon: Hi Dr Cabral, I have a quick question on sugar vs non-caloric sweeteners such as xylitol, erythritol and mannitol. I mostly eat a very healthy Mediterranean diet however sweets are my guilty pleasure! I try not too eat too much sugar and avoid artificial sweeteners at all cost, so lately I've been buying some ice cream and chocolate sweetened with xylitol and erythritol assuming this would be 'better for me', but deep down I'm wondering whether a bit of sugar would actually be better than these additives. I've listened to your podcasts on natural non-nutritive sweeteners but never heard you directly compare them to sugar and say which would be a healthier choice. For context I'm fit and healthy with good insulin sensitivity but have suffered from IBS-D in the past. Thanks!

 

Luke: I have been through quite a lot, from going to the gym 6 days a week, eating relatively balanced, happy and healthy individual to one day January 2nd 2021, massive panic attack I thought i was going to die. 2 weeks later, Fibromyalgia symptoms, then Chronic Fatigue, then burning sensations all over my body, then balance issues, then brain fog got so bad I didn't even recognize who I was. I ended up with 30 plus chronic symptoms.  I found functional medicine and I have healed 20 of the 30 symptoms I was experiencing but some still remain. I am a strong believer that EBV was the main cause for all of this. My remaining symptoms are (new symptom) very warm sensation, feels like someone poured warm milk down the left side of my leg, calf mainly but also my arm and sometimes my head. ER said these warm sensations are nothing to worry about and go home. Ectopic beats, could this be EBV or the parasite, I did a 6 month parasite protocol Still have Blastocystis hominis. But because I got 80% better, was it really ever the parasite as a lot of people I spoke to said it is super bad. But I could never get rid of it with taking very targeted supplements like everything in your parasite protocol and also a 10 day course of a compounded anti parasitic antibiotic.  I feel my heart beat generally all over my body, very heavy at times especially when I do something active, I think the main issue is that I can feel it. I've been through 2 cardioligist and they say everything is normal and fine and benign ectopics. This is the main issue I want to get rid of.  Still fatigue and bodily sensations remain too.  I WAS 80 percent better, but now about 50% better.  Surely after 12 months of clean eating, protocols left right and centre, targeted supplements to go along with my results, I would be feeling the needle move forward and not backwards.  What am I missing here? Thank you Dr Cabral

 

Joy: Hello Dr Cabral, my question/concern is related to pancreatic insufficiency. After years of being treated for CBO then SIBO, plus ongoing treatment for past trauma and still no improvement, actually feeling worse with more bloating and gas my gastroenterologist did more stool testing. The results showed pancreatic insufficiency. I am told the only way to treat this is by taking the prescription digestive enzymes. I was also told just take the enzymes and I’ll be fine, that I should be able to eat what I want. I have been taking the enzymes for over a month now and still experiencing bloating and gas, although much better than before taking them. Are taking the enzymes the only answer? There must be other things I can do I support my system? Thank you for your help! Thank you for all you do!

 

Joan: Hi Dr. Cabral, I’m addicted to your podcasts. :) Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us for free!! My question: I know you said something to the effect that anything that’s wrong with the body can be fixed or reversed, but does that pertain to mental issues as well? I’m 57 and have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I’ve been taking SSRIs for 30 years. I’m worried that there will be poor long-term side effects. I’m also afraid to wean off them because I’ve tried that and it wasn’t pretty. Thank you for your help! Joan

 

Thomas: What would you do about a high AG ratio? My Albumin has been high for two years in a row, and this year my globalin level got closer to the bottom of the range triggering a high A/G ratio. I do the quarterly Dr. Cabral detox and typically add in the blueberries and sweet potatoes day 3 since I’m apt to losing weight. You are the GOAT - thank you for leading the way to better health around the world!

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: 

 

Heather: Hi, me again! I also had a quick question about the natural flavors listed on the ingredient list for the Daily Fruit and Vegetable powder. What is it? I was under the impression that natural flavors are just another word for artificial flavors but I doubt you would put that in any of your products. Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions!

 

Amal: Hi Dr Cabral, I've been diagnosed with an inflammatory eye condition called Uveitis in my left eye. Doctors have not looked into what's causing it but I think it is autoimmune. I also seem to have something called lipedema. Everytime I try to detox my body, it will accelerate the inflammation in my eye, causing further damage to the eye. I tried to take iodine and it would help my eye but cause me to rapid fat gain everywhere. I then tried N acetyl cysteine and the same rapid weight gain but it would lower inflammation in the eye and clear my vision. Then I tried chlorella and spirulina and I would feel coolness in my eyes in 10 mins and it would clear my floaters, inflammation and improve vision. However I will gain a lot of body fat within 2 days of taking the chlorella & spirulina. I came across gynostemma herbal tea and I started losing weight within days but my eye would start hurting and I could also feel weakness in my right eye. I'm not sure what to do. I cant lose the weight without hurting my eye and I can't detox my liver or the rest of my body without gaining weight. My hair has become damaged and dry and I have developed a lot of cellulite on my legs and excess fat around my ankles and everywhere else. I am trying to work on gut health Any advice would be helpful. 

 

Alicja: Hi Dr. Cabral, I would love to get your opinion about inducing period with prescription drugs. I lost my periods a while ago, but I'm only 38 so probably too early to be menopausal. 4 years ago I was pregnant and then was breastfeeding my baby for a while. It's been about 2 years since I stopped breastfeeding, but my cycles don't want to return. After having my baby I developed gut issues. Later I also found out I have hypothyroidism and Hashimoto. I've been addressing both. Overall I feel now much better and stronger comparing to where I was a year ago (thanks to moving to a new house and thanks to your protocols. I've done para pro and currently I'm in the muddle of CBO protocol) I should mention that I am underweight (BMI: 16.2) Since I've been feeling better recently, do you think I could now "induce" my period with a medication? Or do you think I should still wait longer until my body decides it's time. I'm not sure if it's good for me to be that long without cycles. I often hear from other women that once first period is induced, next ones come on their own. I tried Vitex in the past but stopped because I didn't feel well taking it. Thank you so much for your answer. I'm forever thankful for all your help. 

 

Paula: Can you do a podcast on adolescent sports medicine or adolescent sports nutrition? Thanks.

 

Lynn: Hi Dr. Cabral, I’ve enjoyed your podcast for years now, thank you for such great content. Recently I was diagnosed with posterior vitreous detachment by my optometrist. What would you suggest? Thank you so much Lynn 

 

Zak: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have been looking at taking NMN together with Trans Resveratrol however am concerned about any implications these 2 supplements may have on Hashimotos which I have. I have read a pubmed study suggesting that TSH may increase and that NMN is an antagonist to thyroid hormones? I would love to take NMN for all the benefits mentioned in your previous podcast however have reservations. Are you a able to shed some light on the effects NMN may have on the thyroid in particular Hashimotos? Thanks so much for all your insightful material. Zak
