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…

Kayla: Hi, I am working with an integrative practitioner right now. I have had a sharp pain in my lower left stomach, which she said it was a swollen lymph node. My candida antibodies came back extremely high, so I am currently taking antifungal herbs, as well as a probiotic and it my pain and symptoms seem to be getting worse. Do you think there are other underlying problems contributing to this pain? Or why do you think there is such a sharp pain in the lower left abdomen? Thank you so much!
 
Jenny: Hi Dr. Cabral - I am a long-time, dedicated podcast listener and am so appreciative of the information and insights you share. I am excited to now be a Ayubowan Member and look forward to receiving on going lab tests and coaching calls along with it. I follow the foundational protocol level 2 daily and also take your immune support products. My question has to do with the new longevity line of products that I am also excited to try. Because some of them include some of the supplements I'm already taking daily, how can I determine whether I should continue with my current supplements in addition to the longevity products? I have been reluctant to order the ones I'm most interested in trying because I am unsure. Much thanks to you and your amazing team!
 
Hans: how to rid the body of a fatty liver
 
Mally: Hi Dr. Cabral! Thank you so much for all you do, your podcasts and Equilife products have been SUCH a blessing for me and my family! I have ran a stool & organic acids test test through my local functional doctor, and have completed a 6 month bacteria overgrowth protocol through him. I recently tested for incredibly high levels of Ochratoxin A and started on your mold protocol. (His protocol called from some intense binders, so I did not feel comfortable taking those while my body is already herxing.) I appreciate how your mold protocol has less side effects. My question is, is your protocol able to address mold that has colonized in the sinuses and/or organs? My chronic sinusitis started when I was a kid and I am wondering what the proper expectation should be are far as recovery time. I have seen decent amounts of biofilm in my stool for about 6 months now. Also, is there any bloodwork I should be monitoring while I am detoxing so heavily?
 
Crystal: Hi Dr. Cabral! Because of my PCOS, I now have chronic dry eye syndrome. I have listened to all of your podcasts on dry eye that I could find and nothing seems to help. The only thing that has seemed to help the constant burning are Restasis eye drops that my eye doctor prescribed me. The dry eye suddenly started in Feb. 2020 out of nowhere and ever since, my eyes are really red and a large, visible, red vein has formed in my right eye. My eye doctor told me it will never go away, but I just don't want to believe that. My eyes have always been my best feature and I hate having red eyes all of the time and this giant red vein. What can I do to stop my dry eye and can I ever get rid of the red vein? Sorry my question is so long, but I so appreciate you taking your time out to answer my question and I value your work and advice so much. Thank you Dr. Cabral, you are my biggest inspiration!
 
Michael: Hi Dr Cabral what would cause someone to burp omega 3 capsules? I've tried many functional medicine brands but I keep burping them. I have low stomach acid, tested positive for h pylori and I probably have sibo as well.

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: 

Summer: Hi doc! Thank you so much for the time and effort that you put in to serving your fellow man. I’ve learned so much from you and share your podcast every chance I get! Long story short, I learned about natural health a little too late in life. After years of imbalance, infertility, dis-ease, and irreversible surgery, my husband and I are hoping to adopt an infant and I’ve recently learned that it is not our decision whether or not the child is fully vaccinated according to the standard vac schedule. It is the state’s decision until the child is 6 months old when the paperwork has all gone through. So basically I will be forced to take the baby to every ‘well child’ appointment and hand them over to a well meaning, but ignorant hospital employee for all of the neurotoxins mandated by the gov. After learning this I initially decided that I can’t be a party to that. I’ve wrestled with this for months and decided that any poor child in the system would at least be better off with us where we can try to mitigate the damage immediately and give them a healthy full life to the best of our ability. So I’m wondering what is the best way to physically prepare the baby for each visit and how to detox from these unnecessary tox injections? Thanks again! Summer
 
Summer: Hi Doc! In the case of adoption, since the majority of infants in the system are born addicted to drugs and alcohol, and within hours are bombarded with vacs and antibiotics, what is the best approach to help their poor little bodies find balance and healing for the first time in their young life? Also, if the birth mother has some kind of infection like an STI, would you recommend allowing the use of antibiotics especially in the eyes or can some kind of a modified natural anti-v protocol be used if all parties are in agreement? Thanks! Summer
 
Even: Is H pylori bad for you if left untreated? I don’t have any symptoms but tested for it on stool test so I don’t want to spend all this money to treat if it doesn’t matter. Thank you!
 
Kenzie: Hi dr Cabral! I have Gilbert’s syndrome and typically have no symptoms from it. I am a wine sales rep and do love wine so sometimes my job requires to drink a little. I try to limit it but when I do drink I am pretty hungover. How do I support my liver when I do? I’ve heard milk thistle is bad for Gilbert’s
 
Amy: Thank you for all of work & sharing this information Dr Cabral! My son is 7.5 years old and has suffered from allergy induced asthma for the last 6 years. We thought he was doing much better, then last October he was hospitalized for 3 days due to an asthma attack. Less than 3 months later he ended up with pneumonia and not to mention all the viruses he’s had between. Of course the allergist wants him on Flovent 2 times a day, Albuterol, allergy shots & daily Zyrtec but this just doesn’t feel right. We’ve done a food sensitivity and removed those items including dairy & gluten. We met with a holistic nutritionists that did a stool test & learned he has gut dysbosis & a presence of H . Ployri. He is currently on a supplement regimen to help those issues but still doesn’t seem to be improving. We have an air doctor, water filter, only use natural cleaning products & hygiene products. We eat organic & only local grass fed meat. We have removed all the toxic burdens that we know of and are at a loss of how to help him heal. I appreciate any feedback for next steps. Thank you!
 
Greg: Hi Dr. Cabral, I love fruit and sometimes I enjoy the crunchiness and convenience of freeze dried fruit. No additives, fruit is the only ingredient. What are your thoughts? How does it compare it to frozen or fresh
 
Anonymous: I want to first off thank you for all that you do! Providing valuable information for free is very altruistic and appreciated by all of your listeners. I have a few quick questions: -Do you have any recommendations for seasonal allergy support for dogs? My dog gets hot spots for a cluster of weeks 1-3 times a year and I want to be able to help support his gut health/suspected histamine response during those times. -What are your thoughts on the ayurvedic herb, Neem? I am a kapha-pitta (pretty even split) and it was recommended to me by a practitioner and has helped me greatly especially when pitta is aggravated. I was just curious as to your thoughts on it. -What are your thoughts on vegan meat alternatives (for example, Sweet Earth Benevolent Bacon)? Are there any good brands you know of that you would recommend for eating occasionally instead of having the actual processed meat? Sorry if that was too many questions for one submittal, and thank you for your guidance!

Most of the time companies just do this to try to fool you into thinking their product with fake sugars is somehow healthier than consuming simply sugar…

On today’s show I will share with you the most common names for different types of sugar and how they are processed by the body. Plus, you’ll learn an easy way to identify sneaky words for sugar on food labels…

Not very much ever gets to me anymore since I understand that life isn’t about shying away from challenges or believing you will not encounter hard work and effort…
 
That’s why on today’s #CabralConcept 2264 I wanted to share with you why you must choose your sacrifice in life - This will all make sense by the end of the show so be sure to 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…

Bryan: Hi Dr Cabral. Just want to start by thanking you for everything you do for me and so many people. You (and Julia) have helped me uncover a couple of root causes to some of my dis-eases and I’m feeling much better overall. I travel quite a bit for work, sometimes have to stay in hotels, and just find myself in situations where I can’t really cook and it might take a lot of effort to find something healthy. I always take my DNS powder and shaker bottle with me everywhere for the morning and sometimes afternoon shake. Do you have any recommendations for eating clean lunches and dinners while on the road or somewhere where it’s difficult to cook? Thank you so much.
 
Anonymous: Dr. Cabral, I recently ran the heavy metals and minerals test and it was recommended that I start on a multi vitamin for some subtle mineral deficiencies. I am using the equilife multi and have noticed my urine taking on a neon yellow color. I am well hydrated, and my urine very rarely goes past a very pale yellow, mostly clear. Is this a sign that there are vitamins that are not being absorbed or possibly that I am getting too much of certain vitamins and simply offloading the excess? Thanks for all you do!
 
Lesley: Hi Last year I was admitted to hospital with Covid pneumonitis and had oxygen for 12 days. I was hypoxic on admission but not noticeably breathless(silent hypoxia). I have been on a good nutrition plan since hospital discharge and taking zinc, vit c and vit d. I have just had a 12 week follow up X-ray which shows resolving Covid pneumonitis. I feel quite well but worried about the recovery of my lungs. My blood saturation is good 99%. Please can you give me any advice on what I can do to improve my lung recovery. Many thanks
 
Diana: Hi Dr. Cabral, thank you for everything you do and your daily podcasts! I have a question about digestive enzymes. Is there such a thing as being allergic to digestive enzymes? My son has Alopecia Areata, never had any stomach issues like bloating and vomiting, but he does when he takes digestive enzymes, he has tried 3 different and they all had the following enzymes in comment: Protease, amylase, lipase. Any idea of what could be the reason for bloating and vomiting after taking digestive enzymes? It also triggered a flareup. I want to do the CBO protocol, but I am afraid of him losing more hair because of the biofilm distributor and die off symptoms. He is 15 years old and it’s been very hard.
 
Michelle: I have a family member who was just diagnosed with mitochondrial disease? Can you recommend an ayurvedic/ functional medicine approach?Labs or tests that she should have run? Any insights would be appreciated--love your podcast!
 
Lorena: We all know how estrogen dominance and weight gain in the mid section are related. But this is interesting because there have been studies (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5460681/) that show how the risk of diabetes was reduced by 62% in women currently using HRT (hormone replacement therapy with estradiol included) compared to women who had never had HRT. One resource suggested that loss of estradiol, the primary human estrogen, from either natural or surgical menopause causes an abrupt reduction in metabolic rate, a tendency to increased fat around the middle, increased problems with cholesterol and triglycerides, and increased progression to metabolic syndrome. So which one is it? Does it cause weight gain or not? I'm confused now and I only trust your advice haha…

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: 

Bob: Hi Dr. Cabral - I have a fun hypothetical for you. What do you think the health of America would look like 1, 5, and 10 years down the road if you could snap your fingers and eliminate Glyphosate and replace the highly inflammatory oils most Americans cook with and consume with healthy oils? Say everyone carried on with their same diet and lifestyle, just those two things instantly changed. Love the podcast - keep up the good work!
 
Jen: Hi Dr. Cabral! recently did a genetic test and found I have genotype GSTP1 rs1695(A;G). This has been associated with possible harmful effects of supplemental vitamin E. I take the Daily Nutritional Support powder daily and I'm wondering if I should have a concern with the vitamin E in that formula? Should vitamin E supplementation be avoided completely? Thank you for your insight and all you do!
 
Anette: Hi Dr. Cabral. First of all, Thanks for all that you do! And the information you share with us. I don’t want to make this long and take up your time, so here are my two questions. My first question, how do I reduce inflammation in my body which is probably the cause of my seasonal allergies? Is adrenal fatigue a cause of inflammation? I did the OAT and metals test, results did not show any major concerns. My second question, I’m experiencing dry cough and mucus after the virus. It’s been about 3 weeks now. What can I do to get rid of these symptoms?
 
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.
 
Diane: Hi Dr. Cabral and thank you for all you do in your unending efforts in getting us all on track to total wellness. I recently read of a bath ‘recipe’ of 2 cups of Epsom salts, 1 box of baking soda, and one bottle of peroxide in the bath water to help aid in restoring the body’s PH Balance. I’ve watched your Podcasts on epson salt baths along with optional essential oils such as lavender, have read the Rain Barrel Effect, an excellent book, but had wondered your opinion on if this combination has any wellness benefit or if I’m just wasting products. . Thank you for you for any information you can give.

Today’s case study comes directly from our private practice where we had someone looking to figure out the underlying root cause(s) for their low energy, low mood, and poor digestion…
 
To crack the case we had them run the Candida, Metabolic & Vitamins at-home lab test, which assesses 72 biomarkers using just a small sample of urine…
 
You will be amazed (just like this client was) at what we were able to uncover with these lab results!

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…

Tennea: Hi Dr Cabral, I’m currently doing your IHP training. I wanted to know if you have any advice on the condition called Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) I had an accident 4 years ago leaving me “permanently disabled” in my left arm, hand, and shoulder after breaking my elbow (terrible triad). And I ended up with this nerve chronic pain CRPS. I also developed a anaphylactic reaction to seafood last year (I LOVE seafood), I believe it’s related to the CRPS. I would be eternally great full for your advice or thoughts on this. Warm regards Teena

Lara: Hi, dr. Cabral :) I’m hoping you could talk about the “extra” ingredients in supplements.. like different fillers, additives, preservatives..? Which ones should we be careful about, which different names do they use for the same crappy substance, for example, citric acid is in lots of them, also lactic acid, etc. What kind of a capsule (vegan) should it be and so on? Would love to buy extra clean supplements but sometimes it’s really difficult to get them, especially with the crazy prices.. Thank you! Happy healing, everyone!  

Rachel: Body odour. I sometimes find that I have very very strong body odour in my armpits. It's not the "normal" BO smell. It is pungent but more like a strong gasoline smell. When it happens it's almost as if I can't wash it off. Showering and washing my armpits helps lessen it, but the smell is still there. Any idea what the cause could be or how to rectify it? Thank you!

Debra: I have mast cell disease,, hereditary alpha tryptaemia syndrome, and Intracranaian increased hypertension which causes debilitating migraines. I have done your detox and despite the debilitating migraines getting worse I stuck it out. I did the hair migraine erase test and I had to stop all supplements recommended for now. I was reacting to everything. Especially the shakes high in vitamin A. Do you have experience in IIH aka pseudo tumor? Would love to work together further. I'm a huge fan and desperate to heal.thanks, Debra

Nick: Hi Dr. Cabral! I have two questions for you — one, i recently had a snowboarding accident where i hit my head and got a CT scan and MRI which showed a Cavernoma in the back upper outer edge of my head. Do you have any natural remedies advice for controlling / improving it? i’ve had no symptoms and it was found incidentally. (i’m 25 years old) my second question is — they told me i will need to monitor it probably 1-2 times a year with contrast and no contrast MRI. Should i be concerned with the gadolinium metal that’s used to contrast the MRI? if so, would you have any alternative suggestions (i.e. recommending no contrast) or any detox solutions you’d recommend if you think it’s necessary? thank you!

Karen: Hi Dr. Cabral - I recently found your practice and I love what you do. My question is - my son joined the navy and had extensive blood work done. He discovered that he has a high percentage of sickle cell trait. He was 1% from the navy's limit. Are there health issues associated with a higher percentage of this trait? Thank you so much! Karen

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: 

Chelsea: Hi Dr. Cabral! Two quick questions - I’m a healthy and active 30yo female and have a high running body temperature. My friends and my partner often comments that my skin is always hot to the touch almost like I have a fever but it’s my baseline, especially in the evening and overnight. I sweat easily and am a true pitta. Do you know why I might run so hot? I have stripped back most inflammatory foods after doing my lab testing and am in good health overall, and don’t have hot flashes or anything I’m just curious why I’m warmer than anyone I know! Second - my Oura ring shows me that I get almost all of my REM sleep between 6am -8am. Is this normal? This means any time I have to get up early I miss out on most of my rem, when when I try to go to bed earlier. I’d estimate most nights I’m fully asleep before 11 and always practice good sleep hygiene to maximise my deep and rem cycles. Is this normal/is there anything I can do to get more rem before 6am? Thank you! Chelsea
 
Jill: Hi Dr Cabral. Thank you 100 times over for changing my life. Question I go to bed around 11 but around 2-3 am I start itching uncontrollably until I wake up. All over really but then specifically in one spot on the inside of my thigh. It keeps me up all night. I have read It’s because of body temperature change, moisture etc I also have severe dry mouth upon waking? Is this simply dehydration? . I have an air purifier in my room and i drink water? Does this mean i need more? I try to slow down water before bed to avoid waking up to urinate. What am i missing or what Would you suggest? What exactly is going on? Thank you again, Jill
 
Anonymous: Hi! I am such a huge fan of the podcast! It has truly taught me a lot. I have been learning a lot about ayurveda lately, but something that still confuses me is the ayurvedic season. In my country, we only have only rainy and sunny seasons, not the 4 seasons. I was wondering how that translates ayurvedically to the dosha seasons. I would like to tailor my diet to the season but I'm a bit unclear on how to do that. Also, my birth constitution is predominantly vata(50%) and the rest is pitta and kapha respectively. I understand that I need more grounding carbs, and wholesome oils and fats in my diet. Especially because I tend to have dry skin and dull low density hair. However, whenever I increase them, I gain a lot of weight especially in my face and belly. I assume it's insulin issues. I have tried detoxing and fasting but I still have a lot of food cravings. And it's not for refined carbs, it's for healthy foods like sweet potatoes and also fats like avocados . When I finish a meal, I feel physically full but mentally unsatisfied. I can't seem to stop eating even though I know that I've had enough. The feeling is so strong. I also can't seem to stop thinking about food even when I'm not eating. It's overwhelming. I would love your insight on this. Thank you for all you do!
 
Michelle: Hi Dr. Cabral. I hope this will be an interesting one for you to answer. Couple years ago before I knew what a proper functional medicine gut/stool test was I did one that gave me a list of foods to avoid and superfoods to maximize based on my microbiome. Avoid list foods were bell peppers, paprika, tomato and the reason given was because my gut had pepper and paprika mild mottle virus and tomato mosaic virus. Another food on the avoid list was coffee and the reason given was because the catechols in coffee can be unfavorable to my gut. What are coffee catechols? Is any of this real? Can the viruses be eradicated? I don't drink coffee but I want to try a coffee enema so will I be compromising my gut as the test suggests? Thanks for the guidance!
 
Marleena: Hi! Thank you so much for what you do! I’m a Vata 32 years old currently working through adrenal fatigue with your team. I’ve been trying to maximise my self-care so I started implementing hot Epsom salt baths 2x a week before dinner. My readiness in the Oura ring is not as great the morning after the days I do the bath as it looks like my heart rate is a little higher throughout the night. Any idea why these baths might be affecting me like that? I only stay for 10 min.
 
Brenda: Hi & thank you Dr Cabral for all your knowledge. What are your recommendations/experience with transdermal cream vs by mouth form. An Ayurvedic practitioner recommended chandika vit d transdermal cream instead of using a by mouth form of drops or supplements to prevent less liver overload . Appreciate your advice regarding this. Thank you

There are so many tips surrounding the topic of intermittent fasting that I consider it my job to simplify the overall dogma as much as humanly possible.
 
My goal for today's show is to teach how the body works and when it is most important to feed it based on bioenergetic needs.
 
I believe by the end of the show you will understand intuitively when you should be eating and how much, as well as when not to be consuming the largest amount of food during your day.
 
For this big quick intermittent fasting tip tune in to today's #CabralConcept 2253 for all the details – Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

I do my best to keep up with the latest science and the most innovative ways to help people boost their metabolism and lose unwanted weight…
 
However, there is a big distinction between what you can do that has short-term benefits, versus working at the root cause of a slow metabolism that will continue to work for years to come…
 
The difference comes between what you add to the body versus how you enable the body to function in a balanced state of equilibrium…
 
That's why on today's Cabral concepts to 2252 I'd like to share with you how to use internal versus external fat loss fixes to give you the best of both worlds and maximize your results – Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

Too much growth hormone can certainly cause potential issues during middle age, but too little can also spell disaster…

 

The reason is that your skin, hair, nails, muscle, connective tissue, and even your organs rely on having the proper amount of growth hormone…

 

That's why on today’s #CabralConcept 2251 I'll share how to increase your human growth hormone (HGH) naturally - 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…

 
Justin: Hi Dr. Cabral, Does cold weather make you sick? My mother is paranoid about her body being cold even when she is inside, and being out in the cold weather she is even more paranoid. She is convinced cold weather will make her sick. I’ve looked this up and could not find anything on it. Thanks
 
Fay: I’m curious… Dr. Cabral you cured yourself of all your diseases. Drs tell me mine is not reversible. I have Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI).. my pancreas is not producing the enzymes I need to digest my fats, proteins and carbs. I have done your labs and your protocols. However, I am going to have this continued bacterial overgrowth because of the EPI. I am taking XXXX enzymes with all meals. My pancreas is fine, not enlarged. My liver is fine..I still have my gallbladder. I have no surgeries or diseases. I’ve done all the bloodwork, endoscopy  etc. I am fine except for the EPI. My Dr said I was drinking more alcohol than I should have on a daily basis. It’s been a few years now that I only have few drinks on weekends. I know I should have none.. I’ve tried that with no change. My question is can I heal my pancreas so that it makes the enzymes I need? Otherwise there’s no point in doing anything more to get rid of the excess bacteria I have.. it’ll just keep coming back. I suffer with bloating and burping. XXXX enzymes helps but I really don’t want to take these pills the rest of my life if I don’t have to. Thanks for any insight with this.
 
Kenny: Hi Dr. Cabral, a friend sent me an article saying that there’s health risks to taking melatonin. I take it at least 5 nights a week and I know in the past you’ve spoken very highly on melatonin and it’s safety. Here is a link to the article. It’s CNN, so I am very skeptical already. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts. Thx! https://www.cnn.com/2022/02/01/health/melatonin-overuse-wellness/index.html
 
Alicja: Hi Dr. Cabral, I love your podcast and have learned so much from it! I've had candida overgrowth and other gut issues that I have been working on. I've done a couple of protocols for candida and parasites in the past (not yours) but still experience lot's of bloating. I take probiotics daily. One of the probiotics I take has S.boulardi in it. I know it's a good yeast, but it still yeast. My question: can Saccharomyces boulardii make candida worse? I also had to take antibiotic recently (Xifaxan), so I want to bring good bacteria to my gut now. Will I benefit from s.boulardi, or can it make my candida worse? (I just purchased Complete Candida, Matabolic and Vitamins test from you and will retest for candida to see where I stand now, I'm curious about the "good fungi" and candida interaction)
 
Alicja: Hi again Dr. Cabral, I also would love to ask you about the medicianal mushrooms and candida overgrowth? Chaga, Reishi, Lion's Mane, Turkey Tail, Cordyceps etc. Can they be good for a person with gut imbalances and candida overgrowth? Or will they make my condition worse? Thank you so much for your answers. Lot's of gratitude and love towards you and your family.
 
Elizabeth: Hi Dr. Cabral! Thank you for all of your wonderful wisdom - I have been a faithful follower for many years. My daughter was diagnosed with a Chiari-1 malformation at age 2 (about 4 years ago) after a fall that required a CT scan due to persistent concussive symptoms. We had an MRI one year ago that showed interval development of a syrinx. Because of the higher probability that it may cause irreversible paresthesias and/or chronic pain, we decided to have decompression surgery in attempt to reduce the pressure in her spinal cord. She has had a follow-up MRI in the past 6 months which has not shown much improvement in the size of the syrinx. Wanting to avoid surgery again, I am curious as to whether you have any recommendations (not cures, diagnoses or treatments) to improve her symptoms. We are currently in PT due to her low muscle tone and poor coordination. I also give her a high quality multivitamin, Vitamin D3/K2, and omega daily. How would you treat this if it were your daughter? Thank you again! Elizabeth

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: 

Jovita: Hey Dr. Cabral, I would like to know if you can help me with my stomach problem. I get bloated a lot and burp 24/7 to a point where I can’t sleep at night. My doctor said I had a chronic constipation and bacteria in my gut and I also have heart burn. And I have been having this problem for 2 years and the medicine doesn’t help. Is there anything you have that I can buy to help ?

Jenna: Hey Dr. Cabral! I really appreciate this community you’ve built. It has helped me overcome health complications I didn’t think I’d ever heal and restored my faith in the power of my own body and mind. My question is a little different. I am thinking of going back to school to get my masters in psychology because I love the field, but don’t know what career I want to pursue with it. I was wondering if functional medicine companies like yours had a psychologist on staff working with the team and the clients. I would love to work with people who are determined to improve their health in all areas. I’ve thought maybe sports psychology would align the best with working on both the physical and mental aspects of health, but thought I’d ask if there are any opportunities for psychologists on functional medicine teams. Thanks for all your help!

Gillian: Hey there Dr. Cabral! I want to thank you first for sharing all your wisdom with all of us. You have an amazing heart for people and touch more people than you will ever know. My question is about breast implants. I got silicone implants 15 years ago and after reading and learning about natural and functional medicine, I think I may have made a big health mistake. While I love the way it makes me look and feel, I do not want to sacrifice my health. I’m in my late 30’s and healthy. Should I have them removed for health reasons and if so, are there any heathy alternatives? Thank you so very much!

Nancy: Hello Dr Cabral, I am a 57 yr old female with history of Hashimotos Thyroiditis, sleep apnea and I had a heart attack 5 yrs ago with one stent placed. I am on Pravastatin 20mg and zedia 20mg. I have recently gained about 30lbs over covid period due to lack of exercise. I am vegan and gluten free. My cholesterol has crept back up to 190 and my glucose is at pre-diabetic level (over one point) I have gained most of my weight in my middle region and my cortisol is also elevated. My oxidative stress and inflammation markers are low. I sleep well and I meditate and do breath practices. I can't tolerate stronger statins due to side effects. I know exercise will help and am getting back on the wagon. What else can I do to reverse all of this. Thank you.

Desire: Hi, is heavy metal intoxication related to Autism/ASD? Is there any treatment recommended if they are related to reducing the effects of heavy metals e.g diet, vitamin or natural therapies?

Audrey: Hi Dr. Cabral. I’ve been listening to to show for several years now and it has truly changed my life. Thank you. I’ve searched for this question but have not found it on the archives. Is broken 8-9 hrs of sleep still considered getting a full 8 hrs sleep? My 6 month old still wakes up once a night, so for instance I will get 6 hrs of straight sleep then another 2-3 hrs after I feed her and she goes back down
