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.

Did you know you can easily block fat storage from building up in your body?

The best way to help me spread our mission of true natural health is to pass on the good word, and I read and appreciate every review!

Dec 7, 2022

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!

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!

We’re back with another real-world example from our Integrative Health Practice to help you better understand imbalances in the body and the underlying root causes behind them…

 

Today we are going to walk through the results from an IgG Food Sensitivity Test to show you that, although you might not have an immediate reaction to a certain food, it could still be having a delayed impact on your health.

 

For all the details, check out today’s #CabralConcept 2491 where we dive into the new food sensitivity testing case study and discuss what the results uncover - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

Nov 27, 2022

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…

 

Donna: Hi Dr Cabral! I was recently diagnosed with a renal AML of 1.3cms and focal nodular neoplasm on my liver was noticed on my ultrasound. I need to now do an MRI to further investigate. I can’t find any archived podcasts on these issues. Some background info: I was on “Yas” birth control pill for 8 years from 14-22 years old, and in the last 2 years I took antibiotics 8 times for UTIs. I’m someone who normally NEVER takes medication. I eat well, don’t drink or smoke, but I’ve undergone a lot of stress since becoming a mom 4 years ago and feel like it’s been since that time that my health has started to deteriorate as I try to juggle motherhood with running my own growing business. I’ll be running the big 5 labs in 2 weeks, as I’m convinced they will shed more light on my health. Any input from you would help! Will these tumors ever go away in your experience? Thank you so much, I value your consideration and time!

 

Maria: Hi Dr Cabral! I would love to hear your thoughts on lecithin as a supplement. Do you recommend it? If so, how does it support the body and what benefits are there? I've heard it connected to cognitive functions, nerves, skin, cholesterol etc. Could it be helpful for someone who has signs of dementia? What about when there's loss of sensitivity, tingling and numbness in lower parts of the legs and feet? Or is there anyone is particular that is at risk of being low in lecithin? Many many thanks for all you do, your podcast is like my encyclopedia on all health related matters.

 

Jesseca: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you so much for all of the education you share. I’ve learned so much from you and am so grateful to have resources like yours to empower myself and my family to live happy, healthy lives. I have two separate questions that I asked in the Facebook support group, and they don’t appear to have been answered before: 1) What is your opinion on chemical peels and products like retinol as part of a regular skin care routine? As I understand it, both make your skin very sensitive to the sun (requiring very diligent SPF application), which raises some red flags for me. What do you think? 2) What is your opinion on using mushrooms like lions mane, chaga, and cordyceps while pregnant? I’m planning on getting pregnant in the next year and am thinking about how to replace my morning coffee. When I’ve decided to give up caffeine in the past, I found mushrooms like this (e.g. FourSigmatic’s functional creamer) to work really well as an alternative. I know you recommend reducing herbs while pregnant. Would mushrooms like this fall in the same category? Thank you! Jesseca

 

Tina: You are amazing, and thanks for all you do! My 13-year-old son was just diagnosed with severe swelling in his sinuses, a deviated septum, and sinus polyps. I have him on daily omegas, daily activated mullti, periodic balanced zinc, daily probiotic, 3 HistPro 2 X per day, and I just ordered the alkalizing vitamin c (all Equilife products). I was forced to start him on Flonase, but I also have him on the nutribiotic GSE nasal spray. They want to do surgery, but they agreed to see if his nose improved after three months on the Flonase. So, three questions: 1-How much alkalizing vitamin c should he take? 2- Is it fine to keep him on all of these other things, and for how long? 3-Is there anything else I could be doing before this follow-up visit to help him so that his nose improves and they don't want to push us into the surgery? He's just over 100 pounds and very fit and active. He has all of the seasonal allergies and allergies to peanuts, tree-nuts, and sesame. I know it will take a while for you to answer, and I did ask on Facebook as well, but I know this will be an ongoing issue, so I wanted to get your opinion since I really value it.

 

Jackie: My practitioner has recommended the Candida and Bacterial Optimizer (CBO) protocol. He is not an expert on Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth, however. He has noted that my good bacteria diversity is really low. I have been on antibiotics and antimicrobials for 10 months to combat my SIBO. So far, no luck. My hydrogen level remains elevated. My question is this. Is this particular protocol good to disrupt established and tough biofilms? Or is this protocol better for someone who would be using this protocol as a first round against SIBO? Has it ever been used with success on SIBO patients who had tough biofilms to break down? Finally, is there a reason why EDTA is not included in the biofilm buster formula?

 

Ales: Hello Dr. Cabral, I have a question regarding earth probiotic strains like B.coagulus, B.clausii, B.subtilis. Lately, I have seen many products of these particular strains being used, especially in combination with botanicals and biofilm removers to help with SIBO. Is there any real evidence regarding soil based probiotics or you aren't convinced of their efficacy? With SIBO or in general?

 

Ales: Hello Dr. Cabral, in my last question I forgot to add that I work in a functional medicine clinic, where we analyse gut microbiom. We see very often low counts of akkermansia muciniphila, which is critical for healthy gut barrier. Soil based probiotics are suppose to indirectly increase akkermansia. Do you see any valuable evidence of that?

 

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: 

 

Eilise: Hello Dr. Cabral, My 9 year old daughter has suffered greatly most of her life from chronic stomach pains, switching between constipation and diarrhea. She has Hyper mobility in her arms and hips, has cold hands, often feels itchy without there being any visible rash. Has very bad eyesight, thin, brittle, slow growing hair and can’t gain weight. She is 40th percentile in height and 2 percentile in weight. I’ve been on a wait list to see a geneticist for possible ehlers-Danlos syndrome. It seems very likely that she has ehlers-Danlos and possibly some accompanying issues. We eat organic and gluten free, grass fed beef, Ive tried giving her liver capsules, omega 3’s, cod liver oil, digestive enzymes, and even c60 to try and help get her as much nutrients as possible but she goes through periods of time where her stomach hurts so much she can’t take them. I desperately need help to figure out what I am missing to relieve her pain and help her be able to improve her digestion and absorption of food so she can heal. Do you have recommendations for how to manage the symptoms of ehlers Danlos to improve her quality of life? Thank you for all the work you’ve done to help people in need. Looking forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Eilise 

 

Anna: Hello Dr. Cabral, I´ve just read your book and I thought it was very interesting and eyeopening. My son is 20 years old, we live in Holland, and he was born pre-mature and dismature. He´s had an eatingproblem the first 3 years and a lot of ear infections. He now wears hearing aids. I also recognised myself in your comments that you felt you never got answers at the several hospitals. My son, first discovered when he was four years old, has also numerous calcifications in his muscles. He is fairly healthy, can do sports, but it does trouble him and the calfifications in his feet are often inflamed if he does too much. Up to now, they only take blood tests, urine tests and occasional photo's. They haven´t seen a simmilar case in Holland and I find it difficult they can tell me so little. Can these calsifications be auto-immune related? Do you have any idea what could cause them? Thank you for now for all I´ve learned up to this point.

 

Carl: I have a sluggish (low) metabolism. Every morning I wake up feeling shaky. My morning blood sugar can be anywhere between 85-115. My morning blood pressure is 150's/100's. As the day goes on, it gets better. Every time I try to go on a diet and cut out the crap (mostly carbs) I feel shaky all day and the blood pressure stays elevated all day. even though blood sugar is fine. I realize this is most likely a Cortisol issue. I do have Candida issues/through lab testing. How can I get enough good carbs to lose weight, yet keep my metabolism up, BP low and keep Cortisol normal? Thanks, Carl

 

Tiffany: Hello Dr. Cabral. I am a daily listener to your podcast as I try to incorporate what I can into better healthy lifestyle for me and my family. We really appreciate it. My son is 16 and we started noticing that one of his hands shakes. I was distracted by it the other day as he was talking to me so it is noticeable. He is a healthy strong guy (6ft tall). Does pole vaulting and lifts and cardio. Not anxious or really stressed. Eats fairly good. He does not eat a lot of sugar or sweets. Can you give me some ideas to look at to help him with this? I’m not sure where to start for him. It has been going on for several months but seems to be getting more noticeable. Thanks so much

 

Joesph: I’ll try to make the long story as short as possible: my wife has well controlled diabetes, however in the past five years she has developed complete numbness in her feet, calves, and it has now spread to her hands. Additionally, she has nearly constant muscle fasciculations, with occasional painful cramping. We know it’s demyelination but no one knows why it’s occurring. She has had every test available and everything shows she is the picture of health (aside from diabetes). She has had tests for tropical disease, other exotic diseases, genetic testing, you name it she had the test. She’s even been to the Cleveland Clinic multiple times. Recently she had a spinal tap which also showed nothing wrong; however, it did show 3 oligoclonal bands found in both the cerebral spinal fluid and the serum. Analysis of this was basically “something autoimmune”. On a side note, her spleen occassionaly swells so much you can see it pushing against her skin. We are at our wits end, and she has said that she’s not doing anything else, she’s been through enough. Can you help us try to find the right path to heal her?

 

Jade: Hi. Dr Cabral. Thank you for sharing all your knowledge with us. Truly a blessing! I am 57 years old. I have fibromyalgia, IBS, silent reflux and Gilbert’s syndrome. I suffer daily with chronic fatigue, severe stomache issues (everything I eat hurts my stomache…gas, bloating, cramping, and loose stools) anxiety, whole body pain and trouble sleeping. Oh, and my cholesterol is high. I’ve also had EBV in the past. I’m always in fight or flight mode. I worked full time for 30 years in a very stressful workplace and I’ve always felt drained. I have gone though a lot of emotional trauma in the last few months. Which has made everything worse. I do eat very clean and healthy. No processed junk at all. Everything’s organic. I pray and meditate daily. I walk when I’m not in a flare up and I do yoga. CBD oil seems to help but I’m not sure if that will cause more problems with the Gilbert’s so I’ve stopped it until I know if it’s ok to continue with it. What do you suggest for me? I can’t afford your 1 on 1 consultations but I will do whatever else you recommend. Thank you to you and your team for all that you do!!!

I believe we are doing a disservice to people if we don’t discuss healthy body weight…

 

I am not approaching this from a vanity point of view but instead looking at it from a science-backed perspective that tells us that obesity can take years from a person’s life and disrupt their quality of living.

 

Today I want to share with you what the top health institutes say are the main factors that cause people to gain weight or have a hard time taking off weight and remind you that all of this can be reversed.

 

So join me on today’s #CabralConcept 2483 where we talk about the research behind the 4 “Obesogenic Factors” making you fat and what you can do to reduce your risk for obesity and optimize your mind and body- 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…

 

Jade: Hi Dr. Cabral. Thank you for all that you do for all of us. You’re a true blessing! I have Gilbert’s Syndrome and fibromyalgia. I have horrible stomache issues and all over body pain. I use CBD oil for sleeping and for the body pain. Am I putting more strain on my liver with the CBD oil? Am I causing more damage? I also drink fermented drinks and eat fermented foods. Is this good for Gilbert’s? My bilirubin has been 1.8 for the last 2 years.I’ve gone though a lot of stress and emotional grief. I’m thinking this caused my bilirubin to be higher then before which was around 1.3. Thank you for your time. Blessings!

 

Tiffany: Hello Dr. Cabral I was diagnosed with vertical heterophoria a couple of years ago. Even with corrective lenses it still affects me when I drive on the freeway and the dizziness makes me feel very anxious. It has only gotten worse over the years. What can I do if anything to find the root cause of this or at least relieve my symptoms. It has gotten so bad that sometimes I have to just pull over for a few minutes because of the anxiety. Thanks so much for all the great information. I listen daily!

 

Nicole: Hi Dr. Cabral! I have been listening to your podcasts for 2 years. Thank you for you for sharing your vast amount of knowledge with your community. My question is regarding my 7 year old son. After a long journey we have finally been diagnosed with Non Classic Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia which has put his body into early puberty. For this he has been put on Hydrocortisone. After 3 months of taking hydrocortisone his hormone levels are finally dropping. This was great news except for the fact after my request to check his A1C verified he is prediabetic. Now I am at a loss. Do you have any tips for me or know of any good resources? My goal will be to focus on his nutrition as much as possible, as that is something we can control. I often think of you and your journey back to health. I know how intimidating this feels to me I can only imagine how you felt. Thank you for your time and knowledge.

 

Jamie: Hi Dr Cabral, I was wondering if there is a difference between stomach bloat and lower belly bloat (under belly button) bloat. I sometimes find that while my upper stomach seems not bloated, I have severe bloat in my lower belly, even first thing in the morning. This bloat doesn’t budge with ginger and other natural remedies (or even may still be there after defacation) What are the differences and what may cause lower belly bloat vs upper belly bloat?

 

Holly: Hi Dr. C, hope you're well? I have one daily vice - coffee! Yes it's organic and the second is a swiss water processed decaf :) HOWEVER I'm a latte drinker and do not enjoy the taste of any of the nut milks in coffee. My go to has been Oat milk however it contains veg oils that i know are not good. My question is, would i be better off with cows milk vs. oat milk with oils? Which is the lesser of two evils? Thanks, Holly

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: 

 

Tara: Hello, My name is Tara and I’ve had stomach issues my whole life. Everyone said it was just a stress stomach. Within the last 6 weeks I was introduce to a natural path doctor who has brought this stomach issue of mine to a head. She believes I have Biofilm. I have tried researching this and cannot find many people speaking about it. My doctor and I have started a plan on how to tackle it but curious if Dr Cabral has dived into this as well? I have been eating great and taking top of the line suppliments and test I am still deficient in all B’s, D, C , folate, etc. I resonate with so many of these podcasts and yet I have not heard anything on this issue of biofilm. I am just curious if Dr Cabral has any insight on this topic. Thank you

 

Meagan: Hello Dr. CABRAL! I think I may have heard you mention palate expanders on one of your episodes discussing mouth breathing. Can you expand on that a bit? I'm debating getting one for my 7 year old daughter but want to weigh the pros and cons. Thank you!!

 

Bailey: I have a 12 month old who has a dairy allergy. I completely avoided dairy & gluten when I was breastfeeding her due to colic and digestive issues. I started her on raw goats milk after nursing, she wasn't a fan.. so she drinks raw cows milk. I plan to switch to nut milk / only water once she is getting more calories and fat from food. One day we ran out of milk, so I gave her some store bought whole milk (temporarily), she developed digestive pain, and hives shortly after. The hives have lasted almost a week now, I know dairy takes a long time to leave the system. I feel like I did everything right with her. She was born vaginally, is unvaccinated, she has never been on antibiotics, she took a probiotic with her breastmilk the whole year she breastfed, dairy wasn't introduced to her till 12 months, we live in the country without a ton of environmental toxins, yet she has this allergy. I myself have always been sensitive to dairy, so my guess is genetics. My question is, what is the bottom line.. what is the ROOT cause of so many childhood food allergies? & Why do we "out-grow" them? This is becoming such a norm.

 

Jessica: Hi Doctor Cabral! Thank you for being a source of well-studied information on all things health and wellness. I have been looking into the iodine controversy and whether or not iodine is beneficial or harmful for thyroid patients, specifically Hashimoto's. There is research on how going on a low-iodine food diet along with no supplemental iodine in any form with support the thyroid in healing from Hashimoto's. I have heard strong views from both sides, and I am hoping to get your view on the topic and how you would approach this subject in the helping of a family member.

 

Kasia: Hi Dr. Cabral, Hope this email finds you well. I watched your video about Serrapeptase enzyme. Thank you so much for the detailed informative and useful information. I have silicone breast implants. I have purchased the Serrapeptase product for my chronic nose sinus, but I am concerned it might deteriorate the capsule that naturally form around the a breast implants. I’ve read on line it eats non-living living tissues; including scar tissue and maybe capsule. Others note, it should be fine to use for someone with breast implants. Do you know if taking the enzyme Serrapeptase, can be taken by someone with breast implants? Do you know of women with breast implants, who have been taking it? What’s their feedback? For the past 3-4 weeks, I have been taking a daily therapautic dose of about 120,000SPU. I have noticed my breast fat has slightly reduced. I don't know if it's because of the Serrapeptase, or the intermittend fasting I have started at the same time. I appreciate your input, and advise.

 

Anonymous: Hi Dr Cabral, I was wondering what can be the cause (and possible solution) for hirsutism, particularly if blood sugar levels are well managed, my periods are regular and I am not overweight. In the past I used the birth control pill for 7 years. I got off, had my two kids, had a chin hair here and there, but now, 2.5 years later after having my second child, I have a full-blown highly undesired situation happening on my chin and around a little the nipples. It’s been at least a year and it’s only getting worse. I’ve used a CGM for several months for the sake of research and investigation, and my blood sugar levels appear very well managed. I don’t drink alcohol or coffee, nor do I smoke. I have no known health conditions. But I’m stressed and don’t sleep super well. When I tested a cycle mapping of my hormones (Dutch test), my testosterone, estrogen and progesterone levels were fine BUT my adrenal glands might just hate me. Both free cortisol and cortisone were VERY low (possible due to a prolonged period of stress) while Etiocholanolone & Androsterone were both super high. I have no cysts on my ovaries and my periods are quite regular so I don’t feel like it would be PCOS either. Please please please… help a sister out! Thank you for all that you do.

Heavy metal toxicity can be the root cause for a variety of gut-based and auto-immune issues…

 

Unfortunately, our drinking water can be a primary source for contamination, but heavy metals such as aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury can be accumulated from a wide variety of common foods, products, and environmental factors…

 

Once exposed, heavy metals can wreak havoc on our gut health and create inflammation that leads to a whole host of issues, which only later get diagnosed as a dis-ease…

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2477 I want to share with you how heavy metals affect your digestion, gut & auto-immune issues and how you can reduce your exposure to them - Enjoy the show and let me know if you have any questions!
