Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend!

I’m looking forward to sharing with you some of our community’s questions that have come in over the past few weeks…

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Dec 3, 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: 

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Did you know that 1 out of 5 women are experiencing symptoms of functionally low thyroid?

 

Conventional medicine will tell us that anyone between the range of .5-5 is considered healthy and would not be regarded as having low thyroid or Hashimoto’s.

 

But in reality, the optimal range is .5-2 and those who are outside of this range might be experiencing symptoms that occur with a functionally low thyroid.

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2490 I want to see if you have any of these hypothyroidism symptoms + the low thyroid signs to look out for so you can determine if you might be experiencing functionally low thyroid - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

How often do we go about our day-to-day life just going through the motions and getting things done…

 

Do we ever stop and think about what is going on in the present moment and how we would change things if that was the last time we were able to do them?

 

While some might feel this is a morbid outlook on life, I tend to think that it provides a way to truly enjoy your life and be at peace in the present state.

 

I invite you to join me on today’s #CabralConcept 2488 where we talk about how you can change your frame of reference and stay present in every moment to live life to the fullest - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

Often times we wait longer than we should in order to make a decision that could change the trajectory of our life…

 

Sometimes we’re waiting for more information, a vacation to pass, or just “a little while longer” before going after our dreams…

 

The problem is that “tomorrow never comes” and we can wait too long and miss the opportunity that awaits us right now…

 

To learn more about rewiring your mindset for success join me on today’s #CabralConcept 2481 to find out if you are waiting (too long) for the perfect plan and I’ll also share with you my thoughts on how to get started on implementing the best plan for success - Enjoy the show and let me know if you have any questions!

Testosterone is important for both men and women...

 

It leads to stronger drive, ambition, increased libido, muscle tone, and improved cardiovascular health.

 

But unfortunately, many people in their late 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s and beyond are experiencing levels that are too low…

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2456 I’d like to go over why your testosterone may be too low and the ways to increase it naturally – Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

I truly believe that fasting is the closest thing that we have to the fountain of youth…

 

But when we talk about fasting, and what things can and can’t break a fast, it is important for us to qualify what exactly that means…

 

At the same time, it is also important for us to look at the reasons why we are fasting…

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2455 I’d like to go through some of the ways a fast can be broken as well as provide you with a list of the sweeteners that do & don’t break your fast – Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

A lot of people get caught up in the dogma of whatever diet they decide to follow…

 

But regardless of whatever the name of your diet is, the most important aspect of it should be how it makes you feel and what the outcome is.

 

Nutrition and food allow us to feel better, live longer and have more energy, and at the end of the day, there are certain foods that we should be eating every single day in order for us to achieve these results…

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2454 I want to go over the top 10 anti-inflammatory foods and how you can easily add them to your daily diet – Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

In today’s world, we are constantly overbooked…

 

Between work, family, education, social lives, etc… we are bombarded with things we “need” to be doing.

 

And while all of these things are important, we set ourselves up to break our commitments if we are not careful with what we say yes to. 

 

So on today’s #CabralConcept 2453 I want to go over why you must keep these 2 commitments for life if you want to accomplish your goals – Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

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: 

 

Alaa: My lab showes that i have Multiple small follicles in bilateral ovaries arrange randomly my gyne ruled it as PCOS i have amenorrhea since more than one year i only got it twice my period was always regular my whole life i have tested all my hormones and everything was in the normal range the dr informed me only estogen was normal low , although i have amenorrhea, excess hair , oily skin some days i feel fatigued, some days im super good , some days i cannt move a pen and things starts falling sometimes healthy bowel movements sometimes severe constipation the dr didn’t find any thing wrong in any lab tests and ultrasound, insulin is super good and fasting glucose is always between 70~88 , what i can do about that ? Im super active person because of my work and i excercise usually 4-5 times a week weight training and my cardio is 20 min *5 times a week .. i used to do low carb HIIT AND INTERMITTENT FASTING But I stopped them cause I feel my body cant handle it anymore. My main concern is why sometimes im feeling super good and sometimes im feeling like super zero energy where i stay in bed all day long and going to the toilet seems very hard is it related to alot of exhaustion cause im on 1400 kcal diet as a female but some days im super active and fine i cant find anything since i did all the MRI ULTRASOUND LAB TESTS THAT I XOULD DO AND EVERYTHING IS FINE

 

Maria: Hi Dr. Cabral! I've written in about this issue before and am just looking for any last insights you might have into my vitamin D deficiency. Last time you suggested a vit D lamp, but I didn't end up going that route since summer was just around the corner. My vitamin D has hovered around 30 for the past year. I've had it checked 5 or so times now. I've listened to your Vitamin D podcast many times and I'm doing literally every single thing you suggest. I was taking 10,000 IU Vit D at lunch w/ a meal containing fat, I take extra K2 with it, I also use the DNS powder daily. After 3-4 months of doing that, I was able to get my number up to 39 (highest I've ever had). In early May I backed down to 4000 IU b/c I took a couple vacations to the beach and also it's summer now, and I'm outside getting sun exposure daily for at least 20-30 minutes (more than an hour on the weekends). So I just retested and my Vit D dropped to 22, even with all this sun exposure! What might be preventing my body from absorbing Vit D? And what are your thoughts on continuing 10000 IU long term since it doesn't seem to results in dangerously high vit D blood levels for me

 

Anonymous: Hello! Big fan of the show, thanks for all you do in the world of wellness and for helping so many people! I am curious what your thoughts are on taking Digestive Enzymes during pregnancy. I know women should minimize their supplement intake as much as possible when pregnant (avoiding herbal therapies, avoiding mega doses of vitamins, etc.), but was curious if these are safe to keep using during pregnancy. Thanks again for all you do!

 

Marlen: Hello! I have a question regarding zinc. Whenever I take it I develop mouth sores and skin lesions stop healing properly. I think I am deificient in copper since I have early hair greying (I am only 27), lowered white blood cells and a history with recurrent iron deficiency anemia. I would like to take balanced zinc (for balancing copper) but cant tolerate zinc (same thing happens when taking a mutltivitamin). I also have lots of food intolerances and gut imbalances (I am currently doing the CBO protocol) but still struggling since everything seems to be upsetting my system. Any suggestions/insights? Thank you for everything you do!!

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…

 

Deanna: I am currently weighing my options for correcting my 5-year old daughter’s cross bite - our holistic dentist recommends an ALF appliance while the orthodontist we consulted with speaks very highly of a Hang Expanser. I didn’t realize until recently just how much asymmetry in the mouth/jaw can really effect overall wellness. I want to make sure that I make the best choice for her long-term health. Do you have any insight into the world of orthodontics/myofacial therapy that could help me better make that decision? Maybe you have seen clients in your practice with one or both of these appliance? Any materials/book recommendations that you have found insightful on this subject? Thank you so much!

 

Patty: Most health practitioners say that after eating one should not lay down, but too take a short walk or some type of light exercise. I know that the digestion process goes to processing a meal after eating and we feel sleepy. Most animals sleep after eating. Shouldn’t we honor our body signals and rest for a short time after eating, so that our body’s can concentrate on the processing of the food?

 

Erin: Hi Dr. Cabral, I recently was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, which I believe was caused by my chronic Lyme disease. My question is, is this something I can get into remission like my Lyme? I’m most worried about this affecting me and a future child in pregnancy. Thank you so much!!

 

Anette: Hi Dr. Cabral, long term podcast listener and ayubowan member. Love all your podcast and the information you share. I have two questions, In your book and on previous podcasts , you’ve mentioned that you have specific gene mutations that cause certain issues like histamine overproduction. How can I find out if I have certain mutations? Is there a genetic test I can run? You seem to know so much about how your genes effect you and how to control them so they won’t express themselves. I know this information would help me tremendously as well. Also what are some supplements you would recommend for killing/getting rid of unwanted bacteria in the body? Are cat’s claw and oil of oregano effective? If so what are the dosages you recommend for adults.

 

Jen: Hi Dr C! I recently started drinking a glass of water w/ apple cider vinegar before I drink my morning smoothie. I've heard it helps with the blood sugar spikes to drink this prior to meals. I've been taking my morning supplements with my glass of water/ACV. Is there an issues you see in combining my supplements with the ACV? Thank you!

 

Audrey: Hi Dr. Cabral, I would like to do the CBO protocol but I know the food list is very restricted. I am training for races except for a few months out of the year then I start training for the next race season. On long rides I like to take hummas, cliff block chews, picky bars etc for nutrition which is obviously not on the food list. How can I do the CBO protocol while keeping up my nutrition on long runs/rides? You are truly brilliant and I appreciate all that you do.

 

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!

When most people think of exercise they think of walking, going for a jog, group fitness classes, lifting weights, or maybe HIIT training…
 
It's interesting, but when it comes to the time you put into any form of exercise compared with the benefits you get there's really only one form of fitness that comes out on top…
 
So on today’s #CabralConcept 2267 I'd like to share with you why I believe sprinting is the most overlooked beneficial form of exercise - enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

Today I want to share with you why all of this talk about becoming fat adapted is largely marketing speak…
 
The human body has three main energy systems and burning body fat as a fuel is the predominant one that we are always using.
 
The reason I state this is that you do not get to choose what energy system you are going to tap into, it is chosen for you based on the stress placed on your body.
 
This is why it's important to understand the foundations of human physiology so if your goal is to burn more body fat you truly understand how to do so.
 
Check out today's Cabral Concept #2266 to hear me debunk and explain the “become fat adapted” myth - enjoy the show and let me know if you have any questions!

To say I love health & fitness tech or “biohacking” would be an understatement ; )
 
But, in reality, there are only so many devices, gadgets, and wearables you can use and track at any one time…
 
So when I was trying to decide between the very best wearable in the industry (right now) I narrowed it down to the Apple Watch vs. the Oura Ring…
 
And on today’s #CabralConcept 1987 I break down in a head-to-head battle the Apple watch vs. the Oura Ring to see which one is the winner for biohacking your health - Enjoy the show and let me know what your favorite wearable tech is in the comments!

I understand not everyone has this problem, but…
 
Many people suffer from opposite pulls from their love for their passions, work, career, or education versus relationships and family time…
 
I’ve spoken about my tug-of-war battles before, but I’ve been using 5 questions at the end of each week that help keep me balanced (I think they’ll be useful for you as well)…
 
On today’s #CabralConcept 1984 I’d like to share with you how to keep the main thing the main thing - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments below!

When trying to achieve your wellness, weight loss, or anti-aging goals there aren't too many lifestyle factors that should concern you more than getting good quality sleep...

This doesn't just mean being able to fall asleep within a few minutes of your head hitting the pillow, but it also concerns your ability to get into a deep restorative sleep and stay there...

The problem is that most people have never been told that dysfunctional sleeping usually signals that there's a hidden underlying root cause for this imbalance...

Tune into today's #CabralConcept 865 to discover the 4 ways to fix your sleep cycle by healing those imbalances - Enjoy the show!

It happens to all of us...

Anyone that's ever tried to break free of the chains that have been holding them back to a certain level in life has experienced "Growing Pains."

The reason for this is 2-fold...

Our brain sends signals of anxiety, overwhelm, and apprehension to our body to keep us in our comfort zone. It may not be a particularly happy place, but at least we're familiar with it and have learned to cope...

The 2nd reason we feel growing pains is that we're exploring unchartered territory for ourselves. This can be scary and we often fail at first, which is why so few end up going on to accomplish what they truly desire in life...

Unfortunately, these growing pains can prevent you from ultimately living a life of purpose and feeling like what you do and who you are matters...

Tune into to today's #CabralConcept 451 for details on how to minimize and overcome these growing pains as quickly as possible- Enjoy the show!

Losing sight of what matters most to you in life can happen for 2 main reasons...

The first one is that you're so caught up in your day-to-day activities, stresses, and ongoings that by the time you stop to breathe it's already time to go to bed...

The second reason is that when we're actually going after our goals and what we truly desire in life we get lost in a sea of minutia that has very little bearing on what will move us forward...

The way to break the cycle is to rewire our mind and conditioning and thought process to stop focusing on the small stuff... Tune into today's #CabralConcept 416 for how to do just that - Enjoy the show!

Our 2nd BONUS REPLAY of the month is our 2nd most popular podcast download of all time!

If you've already listened to this show I highly recommend a 2nd review ; )

Once you begin viewing weight loss as more than “calories in vs. calories out” you will be well on your way to finally achieving your goals…

In my practice, I do my best to teach people that rebalancing your metabolism, hormones, inflammation, and blood sugar, are far more important to long term-success…

However, in the short-term there are a number of ways you can lose the weight stress-free without falling for the top 3 most common reasons people fail at weight loss…

Tune into today’s #CabralConcept 340 for all the details – Enjoy the show!
