There's been some really interesting research on the effects of heat and cold and their ability to burn body fat - or more appropriately defined as boosting metabolism.

 

What probably most interesting is that in terms of cold therapy we can see from the research studies that it has the propensity to actually alter the state of the fat tissue itself…:cold_face:

 

Really fascinating science and on today’s #CabralConcept 2301 I'd like to share with you the 3 reasons cold exposure increases fat burning - Enjoy the show and let me know if you've ever tried cold therapy!

As trans-resveratrol, PQQ, astragalus, and NMN continue to gain in popularity it’s time to explore which form of vitamin B3 is best when it comes to the “anti-aging molecule.”

 

There are 3 forms of niacin (B3) that have been clinically studied to improve everything from eyesight to mitochondrial energy to longevity gene expression…

 

However, with multiple forms on the market how do you know which one (NMN vs. NR vs NAD) is best to take?

 

Tune into today’s #CabralConcept 2300 to find out the unbiased answer and why - Enjoy the show and let me know your thoughts in the comments!

Brian Tracy is one of the greatest self-improvement mentors to ever live and I love being able to share his work with you…

 

I think Brian is best known for taking complex “to-do lists” and simplifying them to get rid of what is not needed and focus on the crucial couple of items that will truly move the needle in your life…

 

That’s why on today’s #CabralConcept 2299 I’d like to share with you the simple 5-step goal achievement plan adapted from Brian Tracy - 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…

 

Stephanie: Hi Dr. Cabral! I am a night shift nurse and I am having a tough time with timing my meals/food during the nights i’m working. I am trying be as healthy as I can working night shift (7p-7a). I know the number one best thing for me to do for my health would be to switch to day shift but unfortunately with the staffing shortage at the hospital I am unable to switch as of now and need to stay on nights. I work 3 nights of 12hr shifts a week. Would you be able to recommend the best meal timing for the nights i’m working? I have listened to your podcasts about meal timing for a normal sleep cycle with being awake during the day which I follow on my days off! :) Thank you so much! -Stephanie, a fellow New Englander

 

Anita: Thank you for your podcasts and all you do to promote health and wellness. I appreciate you. I am not able to tolerate any of supplements or even the detox protocol. I do ok for one or two days and then I am terribly sick and cannot even tolerate hardly any foods. I have CYP2C19-2 copies of variant. Overall functional effect- no enzyme function (drugs less effective, increased chance side effects, and unable to clear from liver- blood thinners, PPIs, anti fungals, anti seizure drugs, SSRI'S, and TCAs. I also have SLCO1B1- one copy. Predicted decreased function. Overall functional effect- Decreased protein function. One copy of Hemochromatosis HFE variant also, may not increase risk. My question is: is there an enzyme I can take something I can do to reverse the effects of these genes? Thank you so much!

 

Erica: How does daylight savings time affect our biological processes and rhythms?

 

Erica: Would you ever consider doing an episode that sums up all the recommendations that you would make specifically for professional athletes and how this differs from the average client? For example, through trial and error I feel that my body tends to need more vitamin C, zinc, and magnesium; I've also found ashwaganda to help, as well as higher protein, and I also tend to feel best after around 9 hours of sleep even though my genotype is kapha-pitta (for reference, I'm a professional boxer so there's around 2.5-3 hours of training and about another 1 of walking every day, so it's high demand). I'm a newbie to the podcast but I wanted to thank you because it's already become a constant part of my routine to listen to every morning, which is really comforting and helpful so I really appreciate you putting all the time and effort into doing these episodes and connecting with your audience. Also, I was wondering if you've heard of the hypnotherapist Marisa Peer? You give so many great recommendations, and after listening to a few of your Motivation Monday podcasts (which are some of my favorite), I thought her YouTube videos on mindset and taking control of inner narrative might be something you (or other members of the audience) might enjoy so I wanted to pay it forward :)

 

Terry: My wife thinks I have nocturnal convulsions. She said I have the symptoms as described by Dr. Google. I searched to see if you have ever discussed nocturnal convulsions on your podcast and did find any hits. If that is what I have, what can be done? I have run the big 5 labs and I have a good idea of my mineral deficiencies that I am working on improving. The symptoms seems to have gotten worse since I have been walking 10,000+ steps per day.

 

Jamie: Thank you again for everything that you do and your help to help us all be a little better every day. Really appreciate you and your team. We have a bit of a quandary at home as we have a toddler aged just over 2.5 years and a new baby around 16 weeks old. Whilst my wife and i do not have any dairy in the house (i've largely fixed my gut and know i have a sensitivity and she is very much on baord and will do big 5 later this year). EVery medical practicioner is pushing dairy, her nursery has dairy every day. She is exposed to some and we are ok with it as we control what we can at home but there is a worry about her receiving enough calcium for her growth. What specifically would you suggest food / drink wise if you were to cut dairy completely to ensure your kids had enough calcium when growing? Also as an extra add on question does this change as they get older...?thank you again

 

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: 

 

Anonymous: Hi Dr Cabral! I do the Daily Foundational Protocol Level 2 & immunity protocol. I do have the HSVII. However, I had the C-virus in January. I was sick for half a day, major head pain and then tired but mostly recovered by the next day. 1 week after I lost taste/smell for 5 days. A week after that, I started getting a herpes like rash on one of my fingers. It took a few days to heal. A week later, it resurfaced. I kept an infrared light on it consistently and it healed in a couple days. A week later, it resurfaced. What do I do? I have heard that HSV2 can hide behind heavy metals/Parasite, but I've done the HM & Parasite protocols. Help me out :) Thank you so much!

 

Erin: Muscle knots...i always seem to have them in my lower neck/shoulder area, especially on my right side. Weight workouts make them even worse. What’s the reason for this and what can I do to correct this? Thanks so very much.

 

Ernestine: Hello, Is there a home water softener system that you recommend?

 

Anonymous: Hi Dr Cabral, i have written in before for low wbc.. a quick summary.. i am an anxious perso & an over thinker. A very hard trait to disconnect from for me but i am working on it. I take adrenal soothe, magnesium in the morning, vit d vit c , DNS shake.. in suggestion to my question before you had question i had asked about my low wbc you suggested it could be oxidative stress, which made total sense to me & still does.. but I just recently had some blood work done, the dr was helping me try to dig a little deeper as to why this might be happening as its always on my mind. It turns out i tested positive or its showing up in my bloodwork for EBV &cytomegalovirus. Honestly im shocked & pretty disheartened. I had my cbc drawn and it had actually went up a little & i thought maybe i was doing something right & the same draw as the virus results it had gone significantly down. Im quite frankly scared this is going to lead me down a sad path and i dont know my next move. My cortisol was also high & she said im in adrenal burnout. I listened to a previous podcast of yours (episode 760) i guess I'm wondering if there is anything else i can do or whats your best suggestion for me. Really just feeling kind of helpless. Appreciate any direction from the bottom of my heart, thank you.

 

Steven: Hi! If calcium levels are high in the blood, would you assume that they would appear higher than magnesium in a hair tissue test? And if they're low in the blood, would they appear lower than magnesium? Or is the calcium tested in the hair tissue test different to the one in serum?

 

Susan: Hi- I’m a psychotherapist who works with many women with chronic gastrointestinal issues due to severe eating disorders and long-term restrictive behaviors around food. When trying to introduce fish for instance- they wake up smelling like fish and it seems to seep from their pores. Other “re feeding” and re introducing “fear foods” leads to chronic bloating, pain, gas, constipation and diarrhea. Due to the behavioral triggering aspect, these clients cannot do any kind of fasting or elimination protocol. And supplements can increase symptoms. Most gastro and even ED dietitians and naturopaths don’t seem to have any lasting answers for healing. I really feel for these clients and want to be able to offer suggestions that might actually help. They are often so frustrated and hopeless- and the symptoms can lead to isolation which leaves them at risk for relapse. Any info and help you have would be much appreciated! Thanks for all you do

One of the reasons why I enjoy talking about helping people achieve the ideal body for them is to give them hope that there is another way…

 

We’re constantly bombarded in the media about weight loss more than any other health-based topic and unfortunately, it’s presented in more of a negative light…

 

My goal is to share with people that it’s really about rebalancing your body, your hormones, and your health and as a result of that you will automatically get to your best bodyweight…

 

Tune in to today’s Cabral Concept #2294 to go deeper on the weight loss topic of how the epigenetics of weight gain affect aging as well - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

Although I highly recommend looking at your gut imbalances, food sensitivities, and hormone levels if you’re struggling with acne, I also wanted to share some interesting research on vitamin deficiencies as a root cause…

 

It turns out that on top of vitamin C, zinc, and other nutrients, your skin also needs specific B-vitamins in order to balance the bacteria and skin biome…

 

For all of the details on how acne can be eliminated with these vitamins tune into today’s #CabralConcept 2293 - Enjoy the show and let me know if you have any 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…

 

Nina: Hello Dr. Cabral, first I’d just like to thank you for everything that you do and share with this community. You have helped so many people with your knowledge and passion to help others. I’m a 36 year old female, and I have recently recovered from Candida overgrowth, blastocystis, vitamin/mineral deficiencies, a few other gut issues. I recently took a saliva based hormone test and has very low levels of estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone. My DHEAS were on the very low end of normal and my cortisol levels were in the normal range. Could this be a case of my body still recovering/catching up? What do you recommend to rebalance my hormones? Thank you again for all that you do!

 

Lori: Hi Dr. Cabral, I am currently enrolled in your IHP 2 program (just certified in Level 1) - I recently was discussing one of your podcasts with a ND re: Covid & the gut, & she mentioned she is seeing alot of Pancreatitis in patients after Covid also. Wondering if this is something you have encountered, & if you can speak on this topic in one of your podcasts. Please advise ~ Sincerely, Lori 

 

Kathrin: Dear Dr.Cabral I have Vitilligo and there is no cure . It really depress me . Do you have any suggestions .I try to be Gluten , no Dairy ,Eggs and low carb low fat . But nothing help .Only direct Sun exposure in the Summer. I feel helpless. Thanks for your time

 

Jillian: Hi Dr. Cabral, This may seem random but, I’m wondering if you have any knowledge on sandbox health safety for children. I’ve been debating on getting one for my toddler and have heard some people mention they can be unsanitary and harbor parasites. We would keep it covered when not in use. Also I’ve heard some people use diatomaceous earth but have also heard it could be harmful? What are your thoughts?

 

Barbie: Hello. I am in desperate need for Dr. Cabral to help me! He seems so knowledgeable and so nice. I have spent thousands of dollars on trying to get better and figure out what the “cause” is to my health issues and NOBODY, not even the naturopaths I have seen can find it. My prayer to God is to PLEASE, can I somehow talk to Dr. Cabral? Can he PLEASE help me?

 

Summer: Hey Doc! I have gut disbiosis, possibly SIBO, and leaky gut, have gotten rid of HPylori, and now mid CBO protocol. I have been doing coffee enemas on and off for a few years with a clean organic coffee. Larry I try to do a round once a week for the extra liver support. I always feel great after, but more often than not, a few hours to half a day later, I’ll experience terrible bloating. It feels like a huge gas bubble or something that won’t move. I usually end up doing another enema to move it through. I usually do two rounds of about 6-8 cups distilled water then about 4 cups of coffee. I started using less water thinking I was just using too much and not being able to move it all back out, but it’s still causing problems most times. Any idea what might be causing the bloating and discomfort? Thanks for everything!!

 

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: 

 

Maria: Hi and thank you so much for everything you do and all your time. My question is this. Back in October of 2020 I had my gallbladder removed. Prior to having my gallbladder removed I had amazing bowel movements sorry for the tmi. I also never had a uti. I'm 46 by the way. After I had my gallbladder removed I started to experience that my bowel movements were starting to slow down. Then I had my first UTI in December of 2020. Then I started to develop adult acne little white pimples all over my face my neck my scalp even my ears. Then my bowel movement started to slow down even more. And I got another UTI in April of 2021. My bowel movements continue to slow down. I try to eat ery healthy I eat healthier than most people. And am very intentional with my health. And I try to do all the right things and take all the right supplements. But I am consistently seeing that my constipation has gotten worse. And my acne has gotten worse. And I have gotten another UTI recently in the month of february. Most recently I also noticed that I get full faster and I fell like I'm so stuffed I also have more gas and burping. What would you recommend.

 

Rebekah: Hello Dr. Cabral. I am 39 years old and over the past year I have been having a cluster of symptoms. GERD, headache, vertigo, off balance, fatigue, muscle spasms, numbness and tingling in my hands, feet, tongue, lips. I had an MRI that showed non-specific white matter changes and was referred to a neurologist. An EMG was done but I have not gotten results. I am not a fan of the neurologist I was referred to and am looking for a more holistic approach to my symptoms. I suspected I was having mold toxicity. We have moved out of our home and into a brand new house but my symptoms have not gone away. I changed my diet by eliminating dairy, gluten and going organic.I did have vitamin b12 checked and it was normal. I am currently on your CBO protocol. Any advice on things I should be testing for or foods to eliminate? This is very frustrating and I wish I could feel normal again and get to the bottom of this. I am so glad I found your podcast and thank you for all that you do.

 

Alicja: Hi Dr. Cabral, First I quickly want to say that I love your podcast and wish I discovered it sooner. Trying to catch up with all older episodes since I learn so much from you. Thank you for all you do. My question is about thyroid. I recently found out I have hypothyroidism and Hashimoto. I'm against taking hormones. How can I rebalance my thyroid naturally? I have a naturopathic doctor who mentioned to me LDN (low dose naltrexone) that for some people can reverse autoimmune conditions. Any thoughts on LDN? Is it worth trying or would you recommend other, more natural approach? (I'm also dealing with GI issues I'm addressing and I read that LDN may also be helpful to my gut issues)

 

Gordon: Hello Dr Cabral, my issue is what seems to be a chronic problem with lightheadedness/dizziness. Has been going on for a year plus, happens every day now, sometimes several times a day. I’ve had MRI’s, thorough eye exams (thought to be related to ocular migraines) and ear exams - all testing returned within “normal” limits. I am in my early 70’s, take no medications, exercise regularly, maintain a healthy diet. Typically have a low heart rate and low blood pressure. Any ideas as to cause, next steps? Any help is appreciated. Thanks for all you do!

 

Adam: Dr. Cabral, Many thanks for all that you do. You have truly been a blessing! My questions are related to anti-aging and Equilife's new Longevity Line, which I am very excited about! What is your current anti-aging supplement protocol? Do you take cell boost and inflamma soothe? If so what dosage? Are there any other anti-aging supplements that you use outside of equilife? On episode 1507 you mention that you have been taking nicotinamide riboside (NR) for three years but it was not included in cell boost. Instead nicotinamide mononucleutide (NMN) was included. Do you prefer NMN over NR? Longtime client, Adam

Most people are not aware that there are simple at-home lab tests that you can run that will definitively show you what deficiencies you may have or toxicities you may be holding onto…

 

One of those lesser-known labs is called the Environmental Toxicity Test which looks at over 170 different environmental toxins that are the most common to be exposed to…

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2288 We are going to go through a real-world case study on how environmental toxins infiltrate our bodies and what we can do about it - Enjoy the show and let me know if you have any questions!

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been trying to share information about why people can’t seem to lose weight by just reducing calories alone…

 

One of those reasons is due to the metabolic hormones that can become dysregulated when your sleep is not optimized…

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2287 I’d like to share the main reasons why poor sleep causes weight gain and what you can do about it - Enjoy the show and let me know if you have any questions!

A whole “new” field of non-meditative activities is starting to become mainstream and I wanted to make sure you knew about them…

 

They are helping to revolutionize the relaxation and rejuvenation field by turning down the brain wave activity which can stress us out…

 

This new field of study is being referred to as “non sleep deep rest” (NSDR) and it includes more than just meditation…

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2286 I’d like to share with you how 10-minutes of NSDR is helping people rejuvenate their bodies and minds - 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…

 

Jennifer: Hi Dr. Cabral! I got "the virus" in March 2021 and again in January 2022. I am a healthy 44 woman. For some reason each time the virus affected my heart rate. It gives me the feeling like my heart is beating very fast and makes me feel anxious or gives me a feeling like I drank too much coffee (when I only drink 1 cup a day). Last year I had my heart checked and everything was normal. It went away after I received the v last year but I really don't want to get a b shot this year. Any other ways to stop my heart from beating so fast? My vitamin A and C levels are low, B levels are high. Blood pressure is sometimes low but usually around 100 over 70. Thank you for your help. I love listening to your podcasts.

 

Allen: Hello Dr. Cabral, I have done the HTMA lab in the past. I did have some aluminum levels and vitamin deficiencies  in my hair samples. I have since taken supplements to fix those vitamin deficiencies.  I recognize now that I should have done a heavy metals detox right away, however I was in the middle of trying to conceive and did not wish to interrupt that and I know it's not safe to do while trying to conceive. So I never completed a heavy metals detox. I eat a balanced diet, I'm a healthy weight,  I complete a few liver detoxes each year, I workout 4-5 days a week with a mix of sauna, weights, and cardio, I use the sauna sometimes as well. I was wondering, aren't I naturally detoxing heavy metals and other toxins from my body very regularly while sweating and eating foods that support the natural detox process? I know that the supplements in the heavy metal detox assist with the detoxification process, but I'm wondering how much I am naturally able to detox on my own simply by living a healthy lifestyle. I know the research supports that the supplements that come with the heavy metal detox work. Are there other ways to remove heavy metal toxins? Thank you for answering my questions!

 

Kelly: Hello Dr. Cabral! Thank you so much for your podcast and book. You are a true blessing to people like myself seeking optimum wellness and disease prevention! I am a relatively healthy 35 year old female with a have a strange question- My husband and I had Cin October. Prior to our infection with C, I had suffered for about three years with unexplained shortness of breath. I tried endlessly to get to the bottom of what was causing this sudden onset shortness of breath. I did diaphragm exercises, I took iron supplements, I increase my aerobic exercise, I tried adaptogens and stress relieving herbs like lavender, I did counseling and meditation… The shortness of breath came out of the blue in my early 30s and magically disappeared when I fully recovered from C (which took about two week). The only explanation I have is that while I had C I would inhale steam with essential oils like Teatree oil and grapefruit seed extract and another germ fighting blend. I’m curious about your thoughts on whether my long term shortness of breath could have been attributed to some bacteria or fungus in my lungs that was inadvertently wiped out as I treated my C symptoms with gentle steam inhalation with essential oils. I am baffled at how this chronic condition could vanish!

 

Oren: Hi, I'm a 20 years old female. I can't remember a time in my life when I wasn't chubby. I'm not immensely overweight, I weigh about 70kg at 1.71m. I've done strict keto for months, combined with omad/intermittent fasting a few times a week, and I also train BJJ 4 times a week. Now starting carnivore. I eat about 1300-1700 calories a day, depending on my hunger. My body won't respond to any of that except for helping with bloating. Measurements and compositions stayed the same for a year of trying these things and I don't really know what to do anymore. I took the body ype quite, and my answers were almost dispersed equally between the different body types, with a small favor for the Vatta and Pitta types, except for the fact that I gain weight easily and can't seem to lose it from my thighs and belly no matter what I do. I'm kinda desperate so I'd love some help, thank you :)

 

Anonymous: Hi dr. Cabral! Hope you are doing well and hope you can help point me in the direction TO get well :)! I experience chronic runny nose upon waking in the morning or after laying down for a long period of time. It stops running a couple hours after being awake and sometimes comes back in the evening. I also have extreme sugar (mainly chocolate) cravings, nocturia, mood swings, acne (mainly around jaw/chin) and foul gas (no bloating). My candida metabolic vitamins test showed no microbial overgrowth, below the mean for all neurotransmitter metabolites and slightly elevated orotic acid. If I have no bacterial overgrowth where is the gas coming from? And why won't my nose stop running (lol)! Do I need to run additional FM labs to figure this out? Thank you in advance for all your advice & recommendations!!!

 

Summer: Hey Doc! On day 14 of a 21 day detox and day 14 of CBO as well. 32 year old female hypothyroidism and gut disbiosis confirmed with testing.I have actually lost some stubborn lbs that I haven’t been able to budge in years so grateful for that! I’m concerned that it’s because I’m starving… been eating clean for 5-6 years. I can’t tolerate any of the plant proteins so have had to add salmon and a little wild game into my lunches. I used to survive on mainly fats especially nuts and eggs. I’m really struggling to get over 1,000 calories and hit my macros. Really missing my hearty breakfast. Worried about causing further damage to my thyroid and adrenals. I seem to now be intolerant of my normal exercise as well. Exercise in the morning is out of the question. My stomach is ALWAYS gurgling (not hunger pains) just noisy. Terrible gas and bloating for the last 9 days. I think that may be due to all the extra veggies I’ve added. I cook everything to help digestion, I use Canadian bitters before meals, chewing everything to a liquid, gut massage, and ginger and peppermint teas. Is my digestion actually getting worse? Should I just power through?That’s what I’m doing, but would like to hear your thoughts even if it’s 7 weeks out! Support group had some suggestions but not satisfactory. thx!

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: 

 

Shirleyta: I have suffered for BMS for 1.5 years.. what should I do, Doctor? What kind of specific Doctor do I need . Thank you for your kind attention.

 

Fiona: Scans show fatty liver but I don't consume any alcohol, my diet is organic and plant-based with no processed foods. How is this possible?

 

Anonymous: Hi there! Firstly, thank you for all the knowledge and wisdom you share! I have been working on healing my gut for about 3 months now. I have noticed some changes like more energy, less cravings, better sleep. However, I am still really struggling with my skin. My skin periodically gets this sort of rash that looks like sebaceous filaments and water retention. I know sebaceous filaments are natural but they are not always this prominent. Are there foods that cause this? Also, I have noticed that i have a sensitivity to lectins and a lot of the protein sources on the Dr. Cabral detox are a bit high in lectins(beans, legumes, chia seeds). I listened to your podcast on eliminating them for a while if one is sensitive and then reintroducing them later on. How can I modify the detox so that I still get enough protein while also avoiding lectins? Thank you so much in advance!

 

Moriah: I was just listening to your podcast and you said something word for word what I said to myself a year ago… “I won’t take antibiotics unless I’m dying” Last year, antibiotics caused me to catch a c diff infection and I’ve never been so sick, the antibiotics they gave me to cure the c diff, didn’t even work and I got a second infection, I literally felt like I could have died. A local naturopath finally helped me heal my gut and repair my issues. Just wanted to say thank you for speaking out about the danger of unnecessary use of antibiotics

 

Lisa: Is it ok to use cbd oil while pregnant? I have been using cbd oil for 2-3 years to help me sleep at night and I can’t sleep well without it. Thoughts on taking it during pregnancy ?

 

Anonymous: Hi. I have been listening to your podcast for a while and it has really been helping a lot with my health issues. In numerous podcast episodes, you have mentioned that keto and long intermittent fasting isn't good for female hormones. I have extreme insulin resistance and I have had it for years. I have tried keto with vegetables for about 3 weeks now along with intermittent fasting of 16 hours in order to try to reduce my insulin resistance, hair loss at temples, and skin rash. However, i seem to be gaining more weight around the belly even though I have not been consuming any carbs other than low glycemic vegetables. What could be causing this? I thought that belly fat especially love handles were caused by high insulin? Also, what method would you suggest for healing extreme insulin resistance for a female? Thank you so much in advance!

Most people have been led to believe that weight gain is simply based on eating too many calories…

 

Although that can certainly be true for many, it’s not the case for millions of people who are eating well and moving their bodies, yet still struggling to take the weight off…

 

So to tackle this topic I’d like to review how chronic stress makes you fat and why it should be one big area you focus on to lose the weight and keep it off…

This is the show that many people have been waiting for…

 

I get hundreds of messages a day asking me if I’ve ever “treated X disease,” or help someone “recover from X symptoms…”

 

After 250,000+ client appointments the answer is always the same, however what people really need to understand is the “why” behind how to get well when nothing works…

 

I will teach you exactly what you need to do and how to control variables & titrates on today’s #CabralConcept 2279 - Enjoy the show and let me know if you have any 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…

Afaf: Greetings, Could you kindly answer an inquiry for my dad who was diagnosed with a prostate cancer? He is 78 years old, 5’10 and weighs 150 lbs. The conclusion of the biopsy shows: - Right prostatic biopsy: adenocarcinoma prostatic grade 4 of ISUP, Score of Gleason at 8 (4+4), infiltrating 80% of the examined sample - Left prostatic biopsy: foyer of 2mm of an adenocarcinoma prostatic grade 4 of ISUP, Score of Gleason at 8 (4+4) The test results from the CT scan showed no other organ is damaged along with his bones. His doctor advised to start radio therapy and hormone-therapy. My inquiry is related to the Prostate Support supplementation as I would like to know if it is compatible with the treatment he is about to start. Can he take the supplements while he is ongoing treatment? Otherwise, should these supplements be taken prior to the start of treatment or after? When and what is the best timeframe to take these? Many thanks for your precious advice.

Siomara: Hi Dr. Cabral I am a 47 year old female. I’ve had sleeping issues for years now. I use to take the generic brand of ambien and that didn’t make my sleeping issue any better. Every night when I put my head on my pillow the back of my head and neck hurts to the point where I can’t sleep. My head feels restless, if that even makes sense. I saw a neurologist and she said I have occipital neuralgia and she poked me with a needle to block the nerve on the back of my head, It didn’t work for me. I also went to a pain management doctor and he told me it was stress and prescribed noretriptilyne to relax me at night, that didn’t work either. I stopped taking every medication given to me for this problem and I just bare the pain. I’ve also purchased every pillow imaginable for the head and neck and nothing seems to work. I’ve changed my lifestyle by eating healthy for the past two years. I am gluten free and eat clean. I’ve eliminated processed foods and sugar from my diet. I was thinking of going to a chiropractor. Please let me know what you think. I am always so tired because I do not get any sleep. Thanks in advance for your help!

Amy: Hello Dr. Cabral, Thank you for all that you do. My husband has had consistently low HDL levels (often in the low 30 mg/dl) despite being of normal weight and without other known risk factors. His father (deceased from a heart attack) and his sister have also both had consistently low HDL (although both were/are overweight). The doctor would advise him to exercise more, which is ironic since my husband runs quite a bit. Having said that my questions are : In an otherwise healthy individual is low HDL something to be concerned about? If it is something of concern, other than increasing exercise might there be some natural ways of raising HDL levels despite a possible genetic connection? Thank you for all you do. 

Summer: Hi doc! Question regarding EBV. I’m 32 & had mono around age 15. My health tanked after that until about 5 years ago. My white blood cell count, absolute neutrophils, & absolute monocytes are all low. EBV early antigen D AB (IGG) is 29.4 u/mL, EBV viral capsid AG (VCA) AB (IGG) is 297 U/mL, & EBV nuclear AG (EBNA) AB (IGG) is 191 U/mL. I’m told all the EBV levels are high & that these labs point to chronic active EBV. I’ve been working diligently for at least 5 years on my health. I’ve overcome PCOS, PMD, endometriosis, H Pylori, depression, arthritis, migraines, exercise intolerance, regained energy & drive, but still having gut & thyroid issues. I’ve been overdosed on Bioidentical T3 for a number of years & have recently weaned off & my thyroid has improved dramatically. By the time you answer this I’ll be about half done with the CBO protocol. I guess I’m wondering how do I know that the EBV is causing my residual health issues? Should I have addressed the EBV first instead of the gut? I’ve already been doing most of the things listed in ep. 760 so curious why my levels would still show a problem with EBV. I’ve worked so hard & feel like I just can’t quite get all the way there. I’m struggling with the right order to attack these remaining problems. Thanks so much!

Chelsea: Hi Dr. Cabral - question about coffee enemas. Does caffeine get absorbed into the bloodstream when doing a coffee enema? Or can they be done later in the day without caffeine affecting sleep?

Isabella: Where does exercise fit in when you’re under extreme mental & emotional stress and not getting enough sleep (4-6 hrs) and still have to manage a household with kids and a spouse? I try to eat well, at least 5-7 cups of veggies per day, lean proteins, supplement with Daily Foundation Protocol 2 plus Zinc. I usually do HIIT classes but worry that it may just be adding more stress to my current situation.

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: 

 

Michael: Hi Dr Cabral, what could be the reason I can only handle 1 drop of biocidin? I've been taking biocidin for 7 months. I can take other supplements at full dose daily like NAC 600mg, ALA 600mg and Liposomal Glutathione 500mg. I have tested positive for mold toxicity and h pylori. What can I do to be able to take higher dosages ?

 

Kelsey: Hi! Looking to build a house. How do you feel about living near farming? There are corn crops on the edge of the property we are looking at. Worried about potential harmful effects from them spraying with chemicals. Thoughts? Thank you

 

Gina: Hi Dr Cabral! Thank you so much for all of the helpful information you share, you've been a huge help with a lot of things I've been struggling with. My question is ; Since I was young (elementary school) I've dealt with a fast heart rate/palpitations/lightheadedness intermittently that have become more frequent lately. I'm 33 otherwise healthy, eat clean, no meds, no alcohol, very health conscious. Cardiologist "diagnosed" a "short pr interval" based off EKG that he says may *or may not* suggest I have an extra accessory passageway. Anyway, the episodes are hard to determine triggers for; they seem to be more likely to happen during my cycle and during ovulation. Also highly likely during season changes. Never been on birth control, gave birth 3 years ago and I'd say they have become more frequent since then. Also had a fibroadenoma prior to pregnancy that disappeared and never came back after pregnancy. Not sure if that indicates I'm no longer estrogen dominant? Did the hair test recently and found my sodium and potassium both low, potassium a lot higher than sodium, calcium a lot higher than magnesium so am going to work on that. I take vitamin D3, multi, vitamin C and zinc as well. Any other direction you can help point me in would be appreciated!! Thank you very much!

 

Penny: I know to consult my physician but… I’m 370 pounds & I I do have Hypothyroid & taking meds for it but I’d really like to start Fatlossity & wanted to know if I could get started & for how long can one stay one it. Thank you for any help or advice with this. Thank you.

 

Aisha: Hi, hope you’re having a great day. My daughter is turning 4 soon and she has about 8 grey hairs on the top of her head. I’ve read this might be a copper deficiency issue. What should I be looking into? Some background: She tends to struggle with mild eczema and can sometimes get constipated. Also, slightly unrelated to the hair but who knows, her belly is slightly big and can get bloated after certain meals. Sorry to throw so much at you at once. Truly appreciate your help and guidance.

 

Alyssa: Hi Dr Cabral! I have a question about HRV. I got an Apple Watch for my 37th birthday. I noticed my HRV is very low. It averages 30’s but it sometimes as low as 15. I have pretty well controlled RA and hashimotos. Other than that, I’m pretty healthy and workout 5x a week, eat a very clean diet and have done a few of your protocols (dns, cbo and lots of supplements to fix imbalances found on big 5). I’ve listened to past podcasts on it, but I’m worried since I already do most of the suggestions for raising it and it’s still so low. Am I more unhealthy than I think?!
