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… Let’s get started!    Dar: I am of south asian decent and find it interesting that some of the stories my dad has told me about religious (I think they are called yogis in india) who lived by the village he grew up in, regularly only used to eat food once or twice a month due to religious reasons. How is this possible and what are your views on that? It does not sound like that could be healthy. Courtney: Hello I’ve been dealing with melasma and hemosidren and I also have breast implant scars. I was wondering if you know the causes of the hemosidren and melasma? Also I was wondering if you knew natural ways to get rid of them??Thanks!! Cass: Hi Doctor Cabral,  Im a IHP level 2 Student and have a few questions. I have ran the big 5 in Australia. I have had stage 6 adrenal exhaustion and hypothyroid for at least 10 years. I also have a history of hyperthyroid as it switches between the two. No thyroid antibodies. Low sex hormones all round with a little higher oestrogen not high. Low DHEA of 2.1, TSH 4.57. I've done 4x EN detox, CBO, Parasite Cleanse. Take DNS, natural calm, zinc, B vit, melatonin, Thyroid support, adrenal soothe, adrenal energy, daily pro biotic, digestive enzymes and oestrogen balance 1/3 cap in my luteal phase.  My cycle is between 26 to 38 days. I am 5.7 145 pounds, exercise every other day and have a active job and lifestyle. Super clean eater and only eat wild caught fish and organic fruit and veg. I have lots of time for myself and practice lots of self care. I know that my mindset is what holds me back due programming from my parents and not believing I'm enough but I'm really working on it.  First question, should I be doing the FM detox when my body adrenals are exhausted? second question, I have been doing the 21 days weight loss diet and have not lost any wight at all. I put on a 6 pounds in two weeks when on holidays in October and have not lost it since. Should I have doing a weight loss diet if my thyroid is already under functioning?  I am hoping to fall pregnant ASAP as I'm 36 and time is not on my side. I have been following all your protocols for over 18 months I look forward to hearing your recommendations.  Jacquie: Hi Dr. Cabral! Thank you so much for the knowledge you share on your podcast, it has truly been life changing. I have a question regarding my brother. He tried a high protein diet and was feeling ill. Turns out that one of his kidneys is very small (they think he was born that way). Looks like he has only one good functioning kidney and the high protein diet was too much on his body. He is off the high protein diet, is now more open to a balanced diet and is already feeling better. My question is what can he do (other than the daily foundational support) to further support his body now knowing this? Would you recommend normal protein diet or one that is lower in protein? He is 26 yrs old and otherwise seems healthy. Thank you again for all that you do. Courtney: Hi Dr Cabral, thank you for all that you do. I recently found out that I’m pregnant and I’m so thankful for all of your information. I was wondering if L-Lysine is safe to take during pregnancy. I have herpes and I’m wanting to do everything I can not to pass it along to my baby. My doctor recommended that I take valtrex during my last trimester of pregnancy to prevent the baby from getting it. What are your thoughts on this? Is there a more holistic approach? Thank you for all your help.   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! - - - Show Notes & Resources:  http://StephenCabral.com/1472 - - - Dr. Cabral's New Book, The Rain Barrel Effect https://amzn.to/2H0W7Ge - - - Join the Community & Get Your Questions Answered: http://CabralSupportGroup.com - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular Supplements: > “The Dr. Cabral Daily Protocol” (This is what Dr. Cabral does every day!) - - - > Dr. Cabral Detox  (The fastest way to get well, lose weight, and feel great!) - - - > Daily Nutritional Support Shake  (#1 “All-in-One recommendation in my practice) - - - > Daily Fruit & Vegetables Blend  (22 organic fruit & vegetables “greens powder”) - - - > CBD Oil  (Full-spectrum, 3rd part-tested & organically grown) - - - > Candida/Bacterial Overgrowth, Leaky Gut, Parasite & Speciality Supplement Packages - - - > See All Supplements: https://equilibriumnutrition.com/collections/supplements  - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular At-Home Lab Tests: > Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (Test for mineral imbalances & heavy metal toxicity) - - - > Organic Acids Test (Test for 75 biomarkers including yeast & bacterial gut overgrowth, as well as vitamin levels) - - - > Thyroid + Adrenal + Hormone Test  (Discover your complete thyroid, adrenal, hormone, vitamin D & insulin levels) - - - > Adrenal + Hormone Test (Run your adrenal & hormone levels) - - - > Food Sensitivity Test (Find out your hidden food sensitivities) - - - > Omega-3 Test (Discover your levels of inflammation related to your omega-6 to omega-3 levels) - - - > Stool Test (Use this test to uncover any bacterial, h.

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:  John: Hi Dr. Cabral! I occasionally get small red bumps near the last joint on my fingers (often close to the bed of the nail). They don’t hurt but can sometimes itch. I suspect that these could be from a food intolerance, although i haven’t pinned down any food that may be causing them. I’m wondering if you’ve come across this before, and if you have any answers for what may be causing this, as I’ve gotten these on and off for most of my life. Thank you! Lucy: Hi Dr. Cabral! My stepmom is suffering from a ganglion cyst on her palm. It’s not bad yet but she’s had surgery to remove them before and they keep coming back. I did a search on your podcast and didn’t see anything so would love to see if there are natural remedies for treating and preventing ganglion cysts! Thanks for all that you do! Lisa: Hi Dr. Cabral, First I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being someone I can trust to help me sift through all of the information out there on health, fitness, longevity and wellness. You're the best! A few years ago I started seeing a functional medicine practitioner. She tested my homocysteine levels which came back at a whopping 87! I am an otherwise very healthy 50 year old woman. I have tried various protocols to get my homocysteine levels down, and have been successful supplementing with very high doses of methylated folate, B12, TMG, etc. However, I am extremely sensitive to these methyl donors and become extremely agitated, angry, and anxious, so although the homocysteine drops to a 12 I am absolutely miserable. So I've stopped taking methylated Bs and the levels rise back up to the mid 40's. Is there any protocol you recommend to those of us with MTHFR SNPs who are struggling with hyperhomocysteinemia? Thanks so much for all you do. With gratitude, Lisa Anna: Hello Dr Cabral, I'm wondering if you can give me some advice regarding my daughter Florentine. She has a patch of dry/red skin (the dryness and the redness fluctuates) at the base of her neck. Also a small dry/pink patch on her arm. She has had these patches since she was about 2 months old and she is now 7 months. She is unaware of them. I saw a naturopath and have since eliminated dairy from my diet. This Friday will be a month without dairy and I don't think there has been any change. How long should I give it to be sure that dairy is/isn't causing the skin irritation?Kindest regards, Anna Janine: Hi Dr. Cabral, A few weeks ago I sent in a question for you about a recent cancer diagnosis. It is my second breast cancer diagnosis in eight years. I am extremely healthy and was really perplexed about why I was getting sick again. I thought maybe from having meat in my diet, and stress?.....Since then I had genetic testing done and I tested positive for the BRCA2 gene mutation. So I think my question has been answered! Liesl: Hello, Can you tell me all of the things that I can do to open my detox pathways (with no gallbladder and no exercise) that will not cause a detox/herx reaction? I’ve been stuck in this loop of being too sick to get well since 2003. Everything I’ve tried has made me too sick to continue. Thank you!

Ayurvedic Medicine holds many answers we’ve been searching for - many of those outside of the wellness arena... For example, Ayurvedic Medicine has a deep knowledge and understanding of body types and actually dictates how a person is best able to lose weight...

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… Let’s get started!    Dar: What are your thoughts as using a ginsing based tea or supplement for extra energy? Gracias. Jon: Hi Dr Quick question, I’m wanting to do the genetic test but it’s unavailable, are you going to be doing them again? If not, what would you recommend.Thanks for all your knowledge.Jon from Aus Vivian: Hello, I just listened to the faster way to fat loss pod cast and you were so interesting. I did the faster way over the summer and while it was good I still didn’t see the results I was hoping for. I just had a bunch of blood work done and wanted to know if you do any consulting. I’d love to have you take a look at the results of my bloodwork and let me know what you think. Basically I’m 45 and I’ve been steadily gaining weight over the past year. I’m not overweight but if I continue on this path I will be overweight soon.I workout 3-5 days a week with a combination of strength training and running/ walking and some yoga. I eat a whole food diet but I do enjoy wine when I eat out once a week or so and I do have a sweet tooth but it’s minimal. I drink one cup of coffee per day with a tablespoon of cream. According to my doctor all of my numbers are in the normal range some low end but still with in normal limits. I’m so frustrated with my weight I’m not sure what to do.I do the intermittent fasting but after hearing you speak I’m wondering if that is helping or possibly hurting me. I try to do the 16/8 but it’s very hard for me. I find myself starving after 13 or 14 hr fast. Anyway, would love to get your feedback if you do that. Thanks, Vivian Kristin: Hi Dr. Cabral, I listen to your podcast often while working and enjoy all the great info. on healthcare, etc. I have learned so much and my husband and I are looking forward to doing the 21 day detox in January! I have a little beef I gotta get off my chest...just kidding :-) I did want to mention though, after listening to episode 741 of the podcasts, that Jazzercise is a great workout! I'm 35 and I have tried many different types of exercise and I have found that so much of what is out there is just way to difficult to sustain for more than a few months, and I want something I can do for many seasons of life. I tried Jazzercise since I was always drawn to dance aerobics and have ended up loving it. Each 55 min. class includes 20-30 mins. of cardio, some stretching, and weight training. You can also adjust your level of difficulty by how much "umph" you put into your moves and how heavy of weights you use. The ladies in there are in great shape and are strong. I realized how well this was working for me when I decided to go running one day, without any training, just to mix it up. I ran 1 1/2 miles, faster than I had ever ran. I think I could have run further but it was in the dead of summer and the heat was a lot. I could tell that my cardio endurance has reached a new level. Anyway, I just wanted to mention this since you like knowing what's out there and getting information about all types of diets and exercise. Maybe you could give Jazzercise a second glance. Who knows, you may even recommend it to someone! Thanks and Merry Christmas! Kami: Hi Dr.Cabral! Thanks for everything you do. I’ve spent a lot of money on supplements and a local naturopathic doctor, including a blood and hormone test. I have some gut dysbiosis and severe estrogen dominance symptoms. I am also a college student and have found myself in a lot of credit card debt. I’ve finally had to crack down and make a tight budget. I try to eat mostly blant-based, dairy free, and gluten free - however, my healing fluctuates because I don’t always stick to these guidelines 100 percent. I’m currently taking your multi-vitamins, probiotics and omega 3’s, some digestive enzymes, ester-c, DIM, evening primrose oil, and some herbs to support the liver and menstruation. I have some supplements to tide me over for a while, but I’m wondering when I run out, what to do? My monthly budget for supplements will probably be 20 dollars. Would some lower quality vitamins do anything, or do I need to just try to be very mindful of my diet to get all my nutrients? Also I was wondering if you have any tips with groceries. I try to get organic when I can, but some things I have to pick and choose. My grocery store also has gluten-free oats, and organic oats in the bulk section, but not gluten-free organic. Is it better to go with gluten-free, or just get the organic? Any tips you would have for staying healthy on a budget would be much appreciated.Thanks! Simon: Hi Dr Cabral I have some questions on perfecting my Post Workout Shakes. I am a fit vata-pita wanting to put on lean muscle mass and increase overall health and longevity. 1) what would you recommend as a healthy (powdered) carb to use in a post workout mix for muscle recovery and weight gain? I have previously used maltodextrin (but stopped because it is basically sugar) then waxy maize starch (which seemed good but is corn-based) then transitioned away from carbs altogether after getting into the whole low/no-carb ‘craze’. Now having listened to your podcasts I understand a reasonable amount of carbs before/after workouts may benefit my gains and health. You recommend a fruit smoothie however I need a pre-mixed powder (which I’m happy to formulate myself in bulk). At present my (non-carb) mix consist of: grass-fed whey; collagen peptides (for gut health); BCAAs; glutamine; spirulina (antioxidants) and stevia. I care more about results that flavour! Any recommendations for a healthy powdered carb addition? I was thinking maybe powdered organic fruit but what are your thoughts on waxy maize starch or Palatinose as options? 2) How important is it to include antioxidants straight after an intense workout? I have heard some say antioxidants can actually dampen some of the positive (stressors?) of working out?

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:  Nancy: Hello Dr. Cabral! I've been learning so much from your podcast and book, and have a question about vegetable oils. In my nutrition class at college, my teacher explained how polyunsaturated vegetable oils like canola oil have been processed and are often already oxidized to form damaging free radicals, or at the very least would form them when heated during cooking. We joke that perhaps a bottle of canola oil is like a bottle of free radicals. However, a lot of heart health research studies say that using "polyunsaturated vegetable oils like canola oil" reduce heart disease risk. When I learned about omega-3s, I understood that they are beneficial and anti-inflammatory, and perhaps canola originally had O3 in it, but by its chemical nature of many double bonds, doesn't that mean the processing and heating would create free radicals, so how can heart associations say it's healthy? They even sponsor canola oil on the bottle! Can you help clarify - shouldn't everyone avoid canola oil and similar vegetable oils? Thank you for sharing your incredible wisdom with the world! Wanda: Hello! I am about to start my first 7 day detox and I was wondering if it would be ok to include 1 scoop of the fruit/veg powder with each drink? I do NOT want to lose any weight during the week and thought it might be a good idea? Reem: Dear Dr. Cabral, I hope you are doing well. I’ve been having a hard time passing out stool and suffering from bloating for more than a year now. I stopped getting the urge of wanting to pass out stool and when I decide to go I strain a lot. It’s been a year since the stool came out as bulk...currently when I strain it comes out as small soft blobs. Because of straining, I got a minor stomach hernia and hemorrhoid. I did endocsocpy, colonoscopy, stool test and blood test and all turned out to be fine. When I told the doctor that I’m on a low carb diet he suspected that I’m not having enough fiber. So, they gave me some natural fiber to eat and it does improve passing out stool a little.I’m so tired of all this. I feel down and I noticed that I started to be less social.I wanted to know you opinion on my case and if there are any further tests that can be done for example food sensitivity or any other test. Katie: Hi Dr. Cabral! I have a question about asthma. I am 24 years old and have had "allergy induced asthma" for nearly 8 years. I have been working on my gut for about two years - done CBO & finisher, taken the food sensitivity test, stool test, OAT, am now taking GI balance for 2 months per my practitioner. I've also tested HTMA & am addressing those imbalances with supplements, and I just sent in my Thyroid, Adrenal Hormone this December. My allergy symptoms like sore throat, sneezing, etc, have gotten dramatically better, but the asthma persists on (as does a recurring eczema patch, and I know they are related). I do acupuncture, nasal drains, take all my supplements, eat a clean diet (no dairy, gluten, processed sugar), and do things daily to reduce stress. But I still feel stuck! I've been on Zyrtec & Cingulair for 8 years - I even tried going off my Zyrtec recently and while my allergies were fine, I had to go back on because of trouble breathing after a few weeks. It seems to start first in my nose, the best I can describe it is like I am sniffing to get more air in. Then eventually my throat starts to hurt and I am breathing in through my mouth, trying to get deep breathes in there. It's just uncomfortable, more than anything, and I can't seem to get to the underlying cause. My immediate question for you is: Where is the next place to look? What could be the cause given all that I've already done? Second, I'd love to see you do one or two episodes diving DEEP on asthma. Thanks as always! Katie James: Hey mentor, I have a question regarding breath. I feel like throughout the day I do not breath properly, I often times unconsciously hold my breath, and when i do breath, I do not breath into my diaphragm. For a long time I have had real issues to get a "full" breath and when I breath it feels as if my breath is getting stuck in my throat/top of chest, like I have some form of blocking there, making it hard to breath deeply. I have had this for a long time, and sometimes I have to make myself yawn to get a full breath, whether I'm breathing through my mouth or nose it seems the only way to get a full breath is to yawn. When I meditate i feel the same issue and I have the urge to yawn lots of times when i am breathing during mediation. I wonder if you had any idea on why it may be that I feel some sort of blocking there, or am a unable to get a full breath without yawning. Possibly some emotional trauma type blockage, maybe a physical tightening of the chest/throat due to some inflammation, I'm pretty puzzled.Any thoughts would be great, thank you... James! James: Hi Doc, my question is about these processed food products I see sold at the supermarket. Do they hold any real benefit, or are most of the vitamins and minerals lost in the processing process? I guess there must be many factors that play a role such as what company is making the products, what product it is etc. but for example, coconut water, dark chocolate, dried fruit - can these be good for me? When Im drinking a cartoned coconut water am I really getting the electrolytes which would be present in its natural form etc. Thank you doctor, James Thank you for tuning into today's Cabral HouseCall and be sure to check back tomorrow where we answer more of our community’s questions!  - - - Show Notes & Resources: http://StephenCabral.com/1464 - - - Get Your Question Answered: http://StephenCabral.com/askcabral   - - - Dr. Cabral's New Book, The Rain Barrel Effect https://amzn.to/2H0W7Ge - - - Join the Community & Get Your Questions Answered: http://CabralSupportGroup.com - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular Supplements: > “The Dr. Cabral Daily Protocol” (This is what Dr. Cabral does every day!) - - - > Dr. Cabral Detox  (The fastest way to get well, lose weight, and feel great!) - - - > Daily Nutritional Support Shake  (#1 “All-in-One recommendation in my practice) - - - > Daily Fruit & Vegetables Blend  (22 organic fruit & vegetables “greens powder”) - - - > CBD Oil  (Full-spectrum, 3rd part-tested & organically grown) - - - > Candida/Bacterial Overgrowth, Leaky Gut, Parasite & Speciality Supplement Packages - - - > See All Supplements: https://equilibriumnutrition.com/collections/supplements  - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular At-Home Lab Tests: > Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (Test for mineral imbalances & heavy metal toxicity) - - - > Organic Acids Test (Test for 75 biomarkers including yeast & bacterial gut overgrowth, as well as vitamin levels) - - - > Thyroid + Adrenal + Hormone Test  (Discover your complete thyroid, adrenal, hormone, vitamin D & insulin levels) - - - > Adrenal + Hormone Test (Run your adrenal & hormone levels) - - - > Food Sensitivity Test (Find out your hidden food sensitivities) - - - > Omega-3 Test (Discover your levels of inflammation related to your omega-6 to omega-3 levels) - - - > Stool Test (Use this test to uncover any bacterial, h.

Although the mineral copper is vitally important to many aspects of our health, it has become way too common to see this in excess on a person’s lab results... It is at this point we consider it a problem and copper begins to act as a metal that causes a variety of brain, neurological, immune, skin, allergy, and other health issues... If you’re dealing with “mystery symptoms” it may be time you look into a potential copper overload...

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… Let’s get started!    Amanda: Hi Dr. Cabral! I love your podcast and appreciate all you do to share your knowledge and the gift of wellness. I have had chronic dry eyes for the last 12 years. Before I realized what was going on I’d wake and have extreme pain and watering in my eyes. Turns out I was having corneal erosions (corneal tears). As per my eye doctor, I quit wearing contact lenses and began using OTC tears as well as an ointment in my eyes at bedtime. I have done this for years. Corneal specialist said my cells were like a bumpy road rather than smooth and would get caught on the eyelids and tear. I have also had the inside of my (upper) eyelids abraded with silver nitrate 3-4 times. I have also been using Restasis for the last few months. Eyes are still dry, I still use ointment at night but I would love to get to the root of the problem and not have this constant worry that I’ll wake up with a painful tear. Thank you in advance!!! Jan: I notice my DNS shake has 250 mcg of methyl B12 and 400 Mcg of methyl folate. Other supplements I've taken have a higher ratio of b12 to folate...like 1000 Mcg b12 to 400 Mcg folate. Can you please explain your reasoning behind the lower b12/folate ratio in the DNS shake? (PS - I would love to hear a podcast just on the DNS shake itself, and how and why Dr. Cabral used specific ingredients and specific amounts when formulating it. It helps me to "visualize" what the shake is doing for my body - seriously! ) Andrea: Hi Dr Cabral. I went off the pill 5 years ago and got regular periods straight away, however, I have been struggling with missing periods the last 2 years getting it around once every 4 months. I have been working with my Naturopath, running tests and have been working to bring my thyroid number down from a 6 to currently a 3 amongst other lifestyle changes. I did get my period back in August on day 3 of my 7 day Cabral detox. Today (Dec) I started another 7 day detox and it is back on day 1! Could the timing be slightly coincidental or are the herbs in the detox tablets helping bring this on? Any insights into how I might achieve these same results when not completing a detox? Many Thanks. Audrey: Hi Dr. Cabral. I recently listed to a podcast on longevity featuring Dr. David Sinclair, Harvard professor and author of Lifespan. He spoke on Metformin, Resveratrol, and NAD booster how these are essential for longevity. I know you have referenced Resveratrol several times in your podcasts, but I searched and could not locate any specific podcasts. What is your take on each of these and is a Resveratrol supplement something that is safe to take and if so how many mg? Thanks so much for all you do! Melody: Hi Dr. Cabral! I love your podcast and everything you teach - you've been a lifesaver for me and my family. However, my PCP is a skeptic with supplements and puts doubts in my mind all the time. So I wanted to ask you about the Equilibrium Nutrition supplements - when you say they are third party tested, where can we find that information on the website or product description? I see the GMP certification - but from what I've read, all supplements need to be GMP certified in order to be FDA approved, is that correct? So by "third party testing" do you mean you use NSF as your third party tester? I'll feel better being able to explain this to my doc and friends if I know more about this. Thank you for being one of the best humans on the planet - I'm so grateful for you!

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:  Cheryl: Hi Dr. Cabral, I know I have had alot of stress. In 2015 while trying to lose weight, clean diet and exercising very hard nothing worked. ONe day while working out I crashed. I broke out in a cold sweat and had no energy. I lanaded in the emergency room. then the following 2 months I worked up "everything" and everything was normal-LOL. through my reading I found I had adrenal fatigue. I went on various supplements and changed my diet to mostly vegetables and meats and fats. No gluten, no sugar, no dairy and no processed foods. After about 3 months I started losing weight effortlessly. I had to eat about every 2 to 3 hours to keep my weightloss to no more than 2 pounds a week. I did not exercise. After I loss about 75 pounds The stress started to return and I gained 50 pounds. That was 2 years ago. Now I want to do it properly. I just did a 14 day detox lost 15 pounds. I am now walking 10 to 15k steps a day. What should I do next? thanks, Megan: Hi Dr. C, apologies in advance for the long and personal question, but I know there are many women out there like me with similar issues regarding Hypothalamic Amenorrhea and I'm hoping your take on my situation will benefit all of us. I am 26, 130 lbs at 5ft8, and I haven't gotten my period in 1.5 years since going off the pill (which I was on for about 9 years after having only one natural period at age 13, followed by irregular periods). I was also dieting at a very young age (low carb in particular), so I know this likely wrecked havoc on my pituitary... However, I have never had a full blown ED, but I was nonetheless always very conscious of my eating and exercise habits. During the first 8 months or so of going off the pill, I was also living in a city while working 2-3 jobs so I was very stressed out but it felt like I had energy (thanks, cortisol!).I did the big 5 labs back in October 2018 which informed me all my hormones were practically 0, but my thyroid was fine though, and I was on the brink of adrenal burnout along with markers of candida, which could also explain the high cortisol. I did the CBO protocol and took DHEA along with the other baseline supplements she suggested, and while my digestion has slowly progressed, by period was still nowhere to be seen. Over the last 6 months, I have completely turned my life around, left the city and my stressful jobs, went traveling and enjoying my life, and came back to have my OBGYN run my labs in October 2019. My hormones looked MUCH better, all normal according to my doc, with Estradiol 52 pg/mL, Progesterone 0.17 ng/ml, LH 13.3 IU/L, FSH 6.7 IU/L, DHEA 4.7 ng/ml, TSH 2.29 uIU/mL, Free Test. 0.23 ng/dL and Total Test. 33 ng/dL.... All this to say, my period is still missing and I am at a loss of what to do. I am a health coach myself, thus well versed in the importance of a healthy diet, eliminating stress, and low level exercise in cases of HA. I eat an abundant plantbased diet with occasional fish, I don't do any high-impact exercise or cardio beyond walking and yoga, and I do not feel stressed. In fact, I feel pretty amazing all around-- my hair, skin, nails, digestion, sleep schedule, energy are all the best they've been in a long time, and yet my 5th vital sign is missing! The only other option I've researched is the concept of forcing-feeding yourself 2500+ cals/day at any cost, no food restrictions (junk food, pancakes, pasta...), and eliminating all forms of exercise aside from stretching for 6+ weeks to "inform your body it isn't in danger"... but I find it hard to believe that I must be unhealthy in order to gain my period back. I'm also unsure whether doing a DCD would be helpful or harmful at this point. I am very lost, and would love your insight. Thank you for ALL that you do, each and every day, many thanks! - Megan Molly: Hello, I have listened to Dr. Cabral for some time now. We have also done some food sensitivity testing through you guys for my daughter. Today, I am inquiring about myself. I currently have a shingles outbreak (I had my first one in January of 2019 and treated it with anti-viral meds). I have had several this year since the first one, always in the same spot on my back/side. I also became infected with genital herpes through and unfortunate and unforeseen incident 3 years ago. I had listened to one of Dr. Cabrals podcast awhile back about how it could be possible to get rid of the herpes virus for good. I'm not sure if both of these viruses could be nailed with one protocol, but either way I am looking for some guidance on how to go about this. With both of these viruses active in my body, I am not well a lot of the time. I have a herpes breakout at least once a month lasting anywhere from 3-7 days and is very painful. My nutrition is very anti-inflammatory. I do take his daily nutrition support everyday. Looking forward to having hearing back and having some hope for my future. Thank you Molly Dar: "To eat when your sick is to feed your sickness" hippocrates. I have read many places that it is actually good to fast while sick is this true based on your experiences and do you recommend this course of action? Ellen: Hi, I'd love your thoughts on the "C" curve in the neck. My daughter (14) has zero curve. Some chiropractors want to be very aggressive about treating it with traction and pulleys and some seem to think it's just a structural variance and it's fine. My daughter is overall healthy but she does have a neurological condition called misophonia which is a real burden for her. I'd love any thoughts you have on either condition. Thanks! Anonymous: Hi Dr. Cabral. Thanks for all you do and the great services you provide. I wanted to get your thoughts on Vitamin D level. Recently my blood work came back with a vitamin D (25-OH) level of 92 ng/ml. I know you recommend a level between 50-70, going to 80s being the highest. Although the normal range from my Lab results is 30-100, I’m afraid my level of 92 too high base on your ideal range. About a year ago I switch to taking 2 drops of your vitamin D drop, should I decrease my dose? My level used to be super low and since I don’t get much sun exposure, I supplement everyday. I know most people are deficient in vitamin D and I was surprised to see my level increased drastically from the previous year’s lab results. Am I at risk for any health issue with this elevated level? Best regards.

One of the issues I see with the way conventional medicine views health is that they are an either all or nothing modality... They believe "health is the absence of the disease," but as you and I know this leaves a lot of people dealing with chronic health issues for life... This is exactly the case with heavy metal exposure and their potentially horrific effect on the body, mind & nervous system... It's also why on today's #CabralConcept 1455 I'd like to explain the undiagnosed symptoms of heavy metal toxicity - Enjoy the show! - - -   Show Notes & Resources: http://StephenCabral.com/1455 - - - Dr. Cabral's New Book, The Rain Barrel Effect https://amzn.to/2H0W7Ge - - - Join the Community & Get Your Questions Answered: http://CabralSupportGroup.com - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular Supplements: > “The Dr. Cabral Daily Protocol” (This is what Dr. Cabral does every day!) - - - > Dr. Cabral Detox  (The fastest way to get well, lose weight, and feel great!) - - - > Daily Nutritional Support Shake  (#1 “All-in-One recommendation in my practice) - - - > Daily Fruit & Vegetables Blend  (22 organic fruit & vegetables “greens powder”) - - - > CBD Oil  (Full-spectrum, 3rd part-tested & organically grown) - - - > Candida/Bacterial Overgrowth, Leaky Gut, Parasite & Speciality Supplement Packages - - - > See All Supplements: https://equilibriumnutrition.com/collections/supplements  - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular At-Home Lab Tests: > Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (Test for mineral imbalances & heavy metal toxicity) - - - > Organic Acids Test (Test for 75 biomarkers including yeast & bacterial gut overgrowth, as well as vitamin levels) - - - > Thyroid + Adrenal + Hormone Test  (Discover your complete thyroid, adrenal, hormone, vitamin D & insulin levels) - - - > Adrenal + Hormone Test (Run your adrenal & hormone levels) - - - > Food Sensitivity Test (Find out your hidden food sensitivities) - - - > Omega-3 Test (Discover your levels of inflammation related to your omega-6 to omega-3 levels)

I know that gluten is no longer the "buzz word" in the industry that it used to be, but that's also the main reason I bring it up today... Too often we follow the media's lead and move onto the next hot "nutritionism" trend and forget about the truths we've already learned... I want to make sure we cover how gluten can have a slow, inflammatory accumulative effect on the body that lulls us into believing it's not so bad for us as it quietly causes a host of health issues...

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… Let’s get started!    Anonymous: Hi Dr. Cabral, Can you please tell me what you would recommend for natural antibiotics for my 8 yr old daughter? We working to correct gut issues that we believe have stemmed from too many antibiotics and a previously poor diet. I don’t feel that giving her 9ml 4x a day of clindamycin will help improve her immune system or digestive health. I’ve ordered your labs and we’re in the process of completing them.To make a long story short, my daughter got something lodged in the bottom of her foot. We went to her PCP and then to an ortho doctor, who removed the object. My daughter continued to have pain and normal mobility decreased. We went to another ortho doc, but no one could pinpoint why my daughter was having pain and limping. We went to a pediatric ortho doc who confirmed that there was a foreign body still in her foot. We just had surgery and things went well. IV antibiotics & anesthesia were used during surgery. We were informed that if infection was found, we would be sent home with an additional antibiotic to treat. According to the doctor, there was no real indication of infection, only a small amount of fluid around the object, so I believe the clindamycin is preventative. She’ll be in a splint for about 2 weeks. I can somewhat understand using antibiotics during the surgery, but don’t feel good giving my daughter this amount of prescription antibiotics. What natural antibiotics or supports would you use for your daughters if in a similar situation? Thank you in advance for your wisdom and compassion. Mary: Dear Dr. Cabral, I am writing on behalf of my husband who has recently been diagnosed with muscular dystrophy at age 72. The doctors have told him it's genetic and may run in the family, but I recently met one of your IHP graduates who told us about your Rain Barrel Effect book and is helping us change our diets as a starting point. Together we are trying to understand what triggered the onset at this late age. We've learned about the functional medicine tests, but are overwhelmed with the cost. Can you share any of your experience with this disease and what you've seen to be the most common root causes? Thank you for being such a wonderful human being and for sharing your wisdom of healing with the world! Chris: Hi Dr Cabral team! Love your show and your work and hope you can help me! I am a 42 year old male with healthy diet & habits apart from high stress levels for quite a few years. About two years ago my anus started itching. It would come and go a few times but then got more persistent.It has now been going on for two years and after two separate visits to the GP, the diagnose was chronic pruritus ani. The only remedy suggested was use of steroids in the form of Advantan fatty ointment.I am not sure the diagnosis is right as the skin around the anus get's red, scaly and agitated when taking a hot shower. Unfortunately the only sense of relief is to scrub what seems to be skin cells from the area but then I think that worsens the eczema. While the steroids do remove the itching and inflammation, symptoms return a week or so later and the cycle repeats itself.I really don't want to apply more steroids but now my condition is worsening and I am feeling very frustrated. Any ideas on how I can test my way to what this is? I have also undergone the CBO protocol as well as the gut rebuilding protocol with no result. I also get mild psoriasis in my ear canal and it has been around for about the same time period, perhaps this is related? I have also been diagnosed with mild benign prostatic hyperplasia which I am told is not related but gives you a better overview of my overall health. Any ideas and suggestions appreciated! Chris Mark: Dear Dr. Cabral I’m a keen follower of your overall work and actively listen to most of your podcasts. I’m based in London. Born and raised in south india. Married to my wife (who is also South Indian), and two children aged 8 and 12. (I share this given your own history in the sub continent) While I’ve had my own complexities with life in general, relative to mental and physical health, relationships and family, I would like to focus here entirely upon my son who is 12 years old. He was diagnosed with ADD (not hyperactive, if anything, very mild) a few years ago, and has been on medication (non stimulant) since. Straterra to begin with, and recently changed to Guanfacine.His symptoms I would say extend to beyond ADD related, has a non standard pencil grip, used to suffer with bruxism when little, lots of foods make him queasy and food is generally a struggle (exacerbated when he was on straterra, which I think may have been a side effect), has a history of swallowing glue/ blue tac in large quantities, has a tendency to drop things / spill drinks , is afraid of the dark and won’t sleep on his own after all these years of trying. Sport is not one of this main strengths, in fact on a school trip to Italy his form teacher mentioned that he was always tired/ lagging the group on most tours to places of interest. On a more general note, last but not least, he is very low on self confidence, not the first to voice his opinion, and won’t be the first to approach someone/ make conversation.As a parent it makes me really sad when I think about what life has in store for him. Many of these symptoms sound like my own childhood. I’ve spent some time researching his condition a number of books/podcasts on ADD, including one by Dr Gabor Mate. Arguably some of his condition could be influenced by poor parenting/ arguments at home and there is no doubt is a large part. I would really like to explore “fixing” his problems and dream that he enjoys a normal childhood, grows to be a confident young man, becomes popular in school once again with lots of friends. Would greatly appreciate any advice you have to offer. I know food/nutrition would play a large part of what you would recommend. I also hope to wean him off his medication having read how it doesn’t do a great deal of food for the longer term. Considering we live in the UK I also wonder what restrictions there are in terms of remote testing that would be allowed to ship to you in case protocols/tests form a part of the recommendation. I also wonder if the rest of the family(including myself) should also consider to be a part of the testing and we should all get tested as a family.Thank you in advance. And once again, thank you for all you do. Megan: Hi Dr. C, apologies in advance for the long and personal question, but I know there are many women out there like me with similar issues regarding Hypothalamic Amenorrhea and I'm hoping your take on my situation will benefit all of us. I am 26, 130 lbs at 5ft8, and I haven't gotten my period in 1.5 years since going off the pill (which I was on for about 9 years after having only one natural period at age 13, followed by irregular periods). I was also dieting at a very young age (low carb in particular), so I know this likely wrecked havoc on my pituitary... However, I have never had a full blown ED, but I was nonetheless always very conscious of my eating and exercise habits. During the first 8 months or so of going off the pill, I was also living in a city while working 2-3 jobs so I was very stressed out but it felt like I had energy (thanks, cortisol!).I did the big 5 labs back in October 2018 which informed me all my hormones were practically 0, but my thyroid was fine though, and I was on the brink of adrenal burnout along with markers of candida, which could also explain the high cortisol. I did the CBO protocol and took DHEA along with the other baseline supplements she suggested, and while my digestion has slowly progressed, by period was still nowhere to be seen. Over the last 6 months, I have completely turned my life around, left the city and my stressful jobs, went traveling and enjoying my life, and came back to have my OBGYN run my labs in October 2019. My hormones looked MUCH better, all normal according to my doc, with Estradiol 52 pg/mL, Progesterone 0.17 ng/ml, LH 13.3 IU/L, FSH 6.7 IU/L, DHEA 4.7 ng/ml, TSH 2.29 uIU/mL, Free Test. 0.23 ng/dL and Total Test. 33 ng/dL....All this to say, my period is still missing and I am at a loss of what to do. I am a health coach myself, thus well versed in the importance of a healthy diet, eliminating stress, and low level exercise in cases of HA. I eat an abundant plantbased diet with occasional fish, I don't do any high-impact exercise or cardio beyond walking and yoga, and I do not feel stressed. In fact, I feel pretty amazing all around-- my hair, skin, nails, digestion, sleep schedule, energy are all the best they've been in a long time, and yet my 5th vital sign is missing! The only other option I've researched is the concept of forcing-feeding yourself 2500+ cals/day at any cost, no food restrictions (junk food, pancakes, pasta...), and eliminating all forms of exercise aside from stretching for 6+ weeks to "inform your body it isn't in danger"... but I find it hard to believe that I must be unhealthy in order to gain my period back. I'm also unsure whether doing a DCD would be helpful or harmful at this point. I am very lost, and would love your insight. Thank you for ALL that you do, each and every day, many thanks! - Megan Molly: Hello, I have listened to Dr. Cabral for some time now. We have also done some food sensitivity testing through you guys for my daughter. Today, I am inquiring about myself. I currently have a shingles outbreak (I had my first one in January of 2019 and treated it with anti-viral meds). I have had several this year since the first one, always in the same spot on my back/side. I also became infected with genital herpes through and unfortunate and unforeseen incident 3 years ago. I had listened to one of Dr. Cabrals podcast awhile back about how it could be possible to get rid of the herpes virus for good. I'm not sure if both of these viruses could be nailed with one protocol, but either way I am looking for some guidance on how to go about this. With both of these viruses active in my body, I am not well a lot of the time. I have a herpes breakout at least once a month lasting anywhere from 3-7 days and is very painful. My nutrition is very anti-inflammatory. I do take his daily nutrition support everyday. Looking forward to having hearing back and having some hope for my future. Thank you Molly Jon: Hi Doc, Jon from Aus here. I have a question about the Oura ring, I have one and notice my resting heart rate is on average 40 but goes around 38-39 also. Is this good or a concern? How does it affect blood circulation? Im predominately vata with pitta body type. Also can you explain heart rate variability, and when Rem,Non Rem, deep and light sleep(what they are and is there a "healthy" order of these types of sleep? Meaning are you in and out of all these cycles all through the night or is it supposed to be in order? I have heard you only dream at the end of your nights sleep or is that not true? hope that makes sense LOL second question (couldn't help myself sorry)I want to check my Blood Glucose levels. I bought a glucometer and check before each meal. I have a super metabolism and need 3 main meals a day plus 2-3 fruit snacks to keep me going. What should ideal glucose levels represent? I eat moderately healthy, some processed, and minimal meat. Exampl: I eat oats for breakkie at 6am and im starving by 8;30-9am. Cheers for any help, you are a great mentor #livinglegend!!!love your IHP 1-2 course also!! See you in Sydney!

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:  Justin: I was wondering if you could recommend any type or brand of Triphala. Also, I know you are against using dairy in the diet, however I’ve read from numerous sources that milk, cheese, and yogurt are important in balancing the vata dosha. Lastly, I’ve read that drops of sesame oil in the ear can help resolve tinnitus, what are your thoughts on this? Thanks, love the podcast. I’ve learned so much! Anne: Hi Dr. Stephen! I recently listened to Kelli Tennant's podcast where you were a guest and I have to say - wow! The knowledge that you have acquired is admirable and I am very curious to know more. I am seeking help in the sleep department as I have been experiencing a significant period of insomnia, as well as abnormal/cessation of menstrual cycle. I live in LA, do you see patients here? If not, do you have a list of trusted like-minded practitioners like yourself in Los Angeles/CA? Thank you! Cara: Hi Dr Cabral! Fortunately, I have little stash of your CBD products while we patiently wait for yours to be available again.I recently wanted to try a brand of CBD plus THC tincture that a friend was trying because straight CBD still wasn't quite helping me go to sleep. Ive been doing all the other protocols and supplements for sleep.I came upon a brand that sounds great, they post their lab/pesticide reports right on their product pages. They don't make that 24:1 CBD THC blend anymore but they claim they have the strongest CBD oil. Its 750 mg per a 15 mil bottle. However they use non gmo soy lecithin and upon questioning they say that increases the bioavailability. It's tested for residual pesticides and solvents. They say that's why people say there's is so much more potent because its more bioavailable. Since you're the master at bioavailability, what are your thoughts on this? In gratitude, Cara Dar: Hope you are having a great day. My question is regarding a 2 day fast - can you briefly go over the pros and cons of a water fast vs a juice fast. Which juice is the best to fast with in your opinion and for a water fast is it better to use lemon honey water or plain water. I am planning on doing the 7 day cabral detox in January. Thanks for all you do p.s. if I am asking too many questions through ask cabral let me know and I will cut down but it will be difficult since your answers are way too informative and it almost feels like having a conversation with a friend.  Melissa: Thanks for all of your insights, I love continuing to learn and improve my health and the health of my family. I have 2 opposite sleep issues. My son has Lyme disease. He was diagnosed over 10 years ago. He has done lots of different treatments throughout the years and is feeling good except for his chronic insomnia! Also my daughter deals with chronic fatigue, is tired all the time and sleeps a lot. If only they could share their sleep hours:) Appreciate any recommendations! Chanel: Hi, What is the best method of testing for lyme? From my understanding, the blood test may not be the most accurate. I’ve heard Dr. Cabral mention that he has completed teachings/seminars on lyme and am wondering if those are yet available. Thank you for all you do. Your information is life-changing. DB: Sensitive subject. Son has vitiligo on half of his two fingers and two small spots on the middle of his back. His tests for vitamin b, d, and autoimmune issues(that his pediatrician said are often associated with vitiligo) have come back negative. I heard you on a podcast briefly mention that hydrogen peroxide could potentially help. We give him nutrasea omega 3, smarty pants multivitamin and elderberry. What steps would you take if this was your 4 year old child as obviously this could affect his mental health later on and is worrisome as a parent? Are there better supplements I could get him. I'll do anything for them. Many thanks for your input. Malinda: I’ve been searching for the answer to what is the root cause of CRADLE CAP. Like you, I have a need to know the underlining issues that causes dis-ease in the body. There has to be a reason that some babies get cradle cap while other do not. All I see online and in my baby books is "there's no known reason, it just clears up on its own." My first child had it when he was a baby and after about a year it cleared up on its own. Now my 8 month old has it. I’ve decided this time around I want to really understand what is going on in my babies body. I am using Babyganics cleansing oil which contains oils like sesame seed and almond as well as calendula and black cumin to name a few ingredients, in addition to giving her 30C of Boiron Calcarea Carbonica a day, which is the homeopathic recommendation. Im noticing her scalp flaking more and it looks like it’s going away by using these products. However, I really want to know what has caused CRADLE CAP to happen in the first place because even though Im using these products and the issue seems to be resloving, is her body still in dis-ease even after the cradle cap has cleared up? Does her gut need more probiotics? Should I do a rotation diet? Am I eating something that is causing it, since she is breastfeeding? Someone on your facebook group page suggested that not washing your baby right after birth keeps it away, however I had all natural home-births and didn’t bath my babies for at least a week if not more. Also was suggested that a correction of balance of the skin flora/gut flora would locate its root cause. I want her body/ gut to be as healthy as it can be going forward. I'm curious as to what is REALLY causing it. If you have time, I also would like to know what is the root cause of hernias? I’ve searched your podcast but non address the root cause. After my husband had a inguinal hernia, it seems everyone we talk to has had a hernia or multiple hernias, which I want to avoid for my husband. Our bodies can’t possibly be that flawed. You rock, thank you for helping so many people! You’re a real life superhero. Anthony: Hi Dr. Cabral. IHP student here. My dad has premature ventricular contractions his whole life but it's ramping up in his 50s, to a debilitating point where it would happen every minute of every hour for HOURS until he takes Atenolol & Estazolam. Then it would slowly subside and the skipping & palpitations would be manageable. This would happen at grocery stores at checkout, non-stressful conversations, and sometimes throughout the night. His physician / cardiologist switched him to Metropolol & Clonazepan. Which exacerbated the condition and it's still affecting him now. I think that taking 10 years of benzos caused a dependency that can't make him switch from Estazolam? What is your take on this situation for short term immediate relief & long term root causes?

One issue I see in the fitness field is that we believe we should sprint before we crawl... The reason most of us have been led to believe this is the best way to get results is because we assume based on the media that “more is more...” What I’d like to do today is let you know you can work out as hard as you’d like as long as you stay balanced and follow specific exercise pillars...

There are a lot of people talking about how inflammation is the underlying factor in many diseases in the body... And although this is completely true, we often forget what caused the inflammation in the first place... One of the inflammatory root causal issues is cortisol (your body's stress hormone) which can cause free radical damage, dysregulate the immune system, and cause blood sugar fluctuations... That's why on today's #CabralConcept 1447 I'd like to share with you how to lower cortisol & stress naturally in your everyday life - Enjoy the show! - - -   Show Notes & Resources: http://StephenCabral.com/1447 - - - Dr. Cabral's New Book, The Rain Barrel Effect https://amzn.to/2H0W7Ge - - - Join the Community & Get Your Questions Answered: http://CabralSupportGroup.com - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular Supplements: > “The Dr. Cabral Daily Protocol” (This is what Dr. Cabral does every day!) - - - > Dr. Cabral Detox  (The fastest way to get well, lose weight, and feel great!) - - - > Daily Nutritional Support Shake  (#1 “All-in-One recommendation in my practice) - - - > Daily Fruit & Vegetables Blend  (22 organic fruit & vegetables “greens powder”) - - - > CBD Oil  (Full-spectrum, 3rd part-tested & organically grown) - - - > Candida/Bacterial Overgrowth, Leaky Gut, Parasite & Speciality Supplement Packages - - - > See All Supplements: https://equilibriumnutrition.com/collections/supplements  - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular At-Home Lab Tests: > Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (Test for mineral imbalances & heavy metal toxicity) - - - > Organic Acids Test (Test for 75 biomarkers including yeast & bacterial gut overgrowth, as well as vitamin levels) - - - > Thyroid + Adrenal + Hormone Test  (Discover your complete thyroid, adrenal, hormone, vitamin D & insulin levels) - - - > Adrenal + Hormone Test (Run your adrenal & hormone levels) - - - > Food Sensitivity Test (Find out your hidden food sensitivities) - - - > Omega-3 Test (Discover your levels of inflammation related to your omega-6 to omega-3 levels)

The best part of running an Integrative Health Practice is incorporating any form of reliable and validated natural health into your practice... For me, this means combining the best of both Eastern & Western-based health modalities in order to help people heal from multiple angles...

Each one of us is on a unique path faced with specific challenges we must overcome while doing our best to live a happy, healthy life... That’s not necessarily a bad thing and I believe it’s time we begin to view life not as a set of individual hardships, but rather “phases” we are in that will determine our next level of life based on how well we complete this one...

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… Let’s get started!    Jean: hello, can you please talk to us about boils. my son has had boils all over his body but mostly on his buttock for the last 3 years (off and on) is there anything in Functional Medicine, Ayurvedic or naturopathy to stop them from happening. background 16 year old, male, fit, strong, enjoys life but has everyday stresses of school, diet is 80% organic diet mostly 60% vegetarian 10% organic meat but does have a high dose of 30% junk food (chips, soft drink, dairy, fried food, white bread). sleeps 8 hours a night. thanks for your time Jean. Mina:  What are your thoughts on ASMR as a means to switch on the parasympathetic nervous system? I've received tingling sensations in my scalp by watching ASMR videos and I'm fascinated as to why this happens. Any idea? Check out a ASMR soap-carving or tapping video. *mindblown* Mimi: Dear Dr. Cabral, I'm curious about the length of time for healing after the CBO protocol. I had candida/bacterial overgrowth on the OAT test, no parasites on the stool test, and mild sensitivities on the IGG test. I'm almost done with the CBO protocol + citricidal and have followed it with the sensitive gut/elimination diet very strictly. I'm still following the elimination diet just to be safe. My gut feels good, but I had 3 symptoms when I started that I thought were related to the gut overgrowth, and they persist daily: (1) itchy eczema on my ears (2) anal itching and (3) a white tongue (not a coating, just more white than pink). Based on the HTMA + omega-3 test, I'm also supplementing with all EN products to rebalance mineral deficiencies and omega-3. I was hoping these 3 symptoms would have started to subside as I'm almost done with the CBO, but they haven't eased, so my question is, do you see these kinds of symptoms go away during the protocol, or more after the 3 months of heal + seal? Thank you for everything you do - you have saved my health and my life and I am eternally grateful for you! Manny: Hello Dr. Cabral! I love your podcast and all that you do. I'm a 52 year old male and have had diverticulosis with diverticulitis for the last 5 years. I listened to episode 827 and have ordered the 3 gut tests (OAT, IGG, stool). In that episode you mentioned an "autoimmune/paleo" diet but didn't go into specifics. I understand that when I get the tests back, I will likely go on the CBO protocol with the sensitive gut guide - is this guide the same as the "autoimmune/paleo" diet you mentioned? If so, should I go ahead and start the sensitive gut guide while I wait for the tests? And one more part to my question - in your experience, do the pockets of diverticula actually heal or will they always be there? Thank you, with the deepest gratitude and appreciation for you!! Lauren: Hi Dr Cabral, do you have a protocol for strep/acne.... thanks Cole: Hi Dr. Cabral!! I love your podcasts & books, my question is regarding OCD. I have had it since I was in high school, maybe around 14 or 15 years old. I am now 23. It's not the kind of OCD where I need everything to be straight or clean (though I do like being clean) but rather I have to always "check" everything so that I'm not missing anything. Whenever I leave my house I HAVE to go over a "checklist" in my head of some things I might need or be missing. I've noticed it has to do more with my own possessions, for example, I only start doing these lists once I have stayed in an apartment for a few months. If I don't do this I will continue to go through each room in my head when I'm out with my friends, etc. It makes me feel "complete" when I do this, if I don't do it, I feel off. It has definitely taken up a lot of time in my life and often times I have to re-go over what I may be missing because I can't focus on the list in my head. I was wondering what advice you can give me for this, or even lab tests that would be best for me. I am generally a healthy individual. I don't take any meds, exercise regularly, eat a plant based diet, don't get sick often, Use natural based products, occasionally meditate in the sauna, etc. It's extremely embarrassing for me, the only person who - somewhat- knows is my boyfriend who has to sometimes wait while I go over my checklist in my head before we head out the door.

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:  Olga: Chronic hayfever and long standing exposure to pesticides, DDT, welding fumes etc. what is the connection and how to normalise the immune system response? Would detox be appropriate? Thanks! Olga Daniel: First off, thank you for your service. You have made huge and positive impact in many lives and I continue to additionally spread your name and messages around. You give us all hope, which we do not get in the medical community. I am a 44 year old white male. I have been struggling with daily migraines the last 10 years (pain scale 7-10). Anything I tried as a preventative only made things worse, besides Propanolol. I take 120mg once per day. BP 115/77. Any and all things triggered or caused the migraine to increase in intensity. As you did, I performed a lot of research on my own and learned ways to manage and heal myself based on food/product eliminations. I worked the last two years with a local ND, but your history and experience brings it to a whole other level of knowledge. My testosterone levels were always under 300, so I thought I would try TRT therapy. Out of all things, that just about eliminated my migraines and allowed me to have the ability to take supplements without triggering a migraine. Gradually, I will work to get off TRT, which I have only been on for 18 weeks (1 injection every 3 weeks - 300mg of Testosterone Cypionate). I switched to your practice (under J. Hayes), I now know how deficient I was in vitamins, minerals, and how my body wasn't absorbing much of anything. She put me on a good path. My question to you is, two years ago I went for an abdominal ultrasound due to stomach pain (ended up being gastritis) and 2 - 1x1cm 'hepatic' cysts on my liver were found and a 1- 3mm polyp in my gallbladder (no issues with gallbladder). I usually go for scans every 6 months. Last one (before starting your regimen) on 9/16/2019 now shows they are 2cm on my liver and a 3rd found (left, caudate lobe, right lobe), and polyp (gallbladder) is now 4mm, and now also 1cm cyst was found on my left kidney. If you wouldn't mind explaining how these cysts form, steps to take, etc. Both, Serrapeptase and Nattokinase trigger a migraine for me within an hour. I know both can work miracles, if I could only handle it. MD do not seem concerned, but then again, they do not care much about our health (in my opinion). It will be interesting to see how things go on my next scan, now that fulfilling these deficiencies.For your Notes: (Julia/You have me on the following)Nutritional Supplements:Daily nutritional support shake: Start with ¼ scoop and increase as able with a goal of 2 scoops daily (on-going)GI balance:take 1 with each meal for 2 weeks and try to increase to 2 if able (complete 2 bottles)Daily digestive: 1 with each whole food meal (on- going)Liquid Vitamin D: 6 drops at breakfast (on-going)Omega 3 support: 1 with lunch1 with dinner (on-going)Full Spectrum Magnesium: 1 with lunch 2 with dinner (use for at least 3 months then reassess)Adrenal Soothe: 1-2 with lunch 1-2 with dinner (use for at least 3 months then reassess)Alkalizing Vitamin C: Start with ¼ of a scoop in the morning with the goal of a full scoop (for 3 months then reassess)Zinc Piccolinate: 1 at dinner (use for at least 3 months then reassess)*Iron Response Complete: 1-2 30 min before breakfast pending iron blood test. You are a true blessing to all of us! Daniel Patty: Dr. Cabral, I am a huge fan of your podcast. With all the podcasts I've listened to, I've never heard you talk about Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. I'm wondering if you have treated anyone with this condition and if so, what you used and how much? My daughter has this condition, along with POTS, Mast Cell Activation Disorder and Celiac Disease. She tries to eat pretty clean and has been gluten-free for a year now. I'm looking forward to your thoughts on this! Katie: Hi Dr. Cabral! I'm wondering what the reasons for seeing mucus in your stool might be. For years I've dealt with it on and off - I always just chalked it up to allergies and/or IBS. I've done all the gut testing and have done the CBO protocol, heal & seal, mold protocol, and am now on an abridged CBO that my integrative health practitioner put me on - all that to say, I'm doing the gut work! But I do still occasionally see those mucus-y stools. Any insight on why that might be, and what causes them? Tara: I am a 56 yr old female no major health issues all my life and just now diagnosed with cataracts I’ve never been dependent on eye glasses a have some that I would were for seeing at the movies, theater or driving unfamiliar places at night and just started wearing readers a couple years ago however since the cataracts I really don’t need readers I’ve read that cold pressed haxane free castor can help /reverse cataracts but I’m hesitant to try ( I don’t want to cause more damage ) I’m currently on day 6 of detox I’m searching for a solution other than IOL /surgery I’d like to know if trying castor oil drops is ok or any other recommendations James: Hi Doc, I once heard somebody talk about how unhealthy fats like the various vegetable oils, canola oils etc. were the WORST thing for your body as you can't utilise them at all. Before this i was always under the impression that sugar was the WORST thing for your body, but apparently we can at least use utilise that. I guess this is a bit of a subjective question as it depends on your specific health deficiencies and imbalances when determining what is the WORST food/product for you. But if you was to say on a whole what the worse thing is, or the worst 3 things are, for the MAJORITY of humans - what would they be? IF you cant answer this question because it's too "person-specific" then can you answer me this question - Added sugar vs. Unhealthy oils - what is worse for you and why? Even if you do answer the first, could you also answer the second, I'm quite interested in the Sugar vs. Oils debate.

It's not talked about often, but one of the forgotten factors of people that stay naturally lean is that they're able to tap into fat as a fuel source while they sleep... The reason this is important is that if you stop eating a few hours before bed and then you're in bed for 7-9 hours, you have 10-12+ hours where your glucose levels should be normalized and fat should be the primary fuel...

Long before there was ever all any hype around Intermittent Fasting, Ayurvedic Medicine had already written the book on it... And that's a really important point to make since they've had over 5,000 years of testing to perfect the art & science of fasting... By now we all should know that we need to incorporate some type of intermittent fasting into our day, but the questions as to how long, what hours of the day, and for who largely remain unanswered... Today, I'd like to share those answers on the 3 forgotten fasting truths from Ayurvedic Medicine and how to incorporate them into your daily life - Enjoy the show! - - -   Show Notes & Resources: http://StephenCabral.com/1439 - - - Dr. Cabral's New Book, The Rain Barrel Effect https://amzn.to/2H0W7Ge - - - Join the Community & Get Your Questions Answered: http://CabralSupportGroup.com - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular Supplements: > “The Dr. Cabral Daily Protocol” (This is what Dr. Cabral does every day!) - - - > Dr. Cabral Detox  (The fastest way to get well, lose weight, and feel great!) - - - > Daily Nutritional Support Shake  (#1 “All-in-One recommendation in my practice) - - - > Daily Fruit & Vegetables Blend  (22 organic fruit & vegetables “greens powder”) - - - > CBD Oil  (Full-spectrum, 3rd part-tested & organically grown) - - - > Candida/Bacterial Overgrowth, Leaky Gut, Parasite & Speciality Supplement Packages - - - > See All Supplements: https://equilibriumnutrition.com/collections/supplements  - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular At-Home Lab Tests: > Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (Test for mineral imbalances & heavy metal toxicity) - - - > Organic Acids Test (Test for 75 biomarkers including yeast & bacterial gut overgrowth, as well as vitamin levels) - - - > Thyroid + Adrenal + Hormone Test  (Discover your complete thyroid, adrenal, hormone, vitamin D & insulin levels) - - - > Adrenal + Hormone Test (Run your adrenal & hormone levels) - - - > Food Sensitivity Test (Find out your hidden food sensitivities) - - - > Omega-3 Test (Discover your levels of inflammation related to your omega-6 to omega-3 levels)

One of the quotes that woke me up the most in life was this: “We often suffer more in imagination than we do in reality.” When I stopped to think about this I realized I’m the one that typically makes a bigger deal out of a situation in my mind than it actually was in life itself... This is why using a “fear setting formula” like the one Tim Ferris spoke about at his TedX Talk can be really powerful... And on today’s #CabralConcept 1438 I’d like to take you through this exact formula on how you can eliminate worry and anxiety around decision making - Enjoy the show! - - -   Show Notes & Resources: http://StephenCabral.com/1438 - - - Dr. Cabral's New Book, The Rain Barrel Effect https://amzn.to/2H0W7Ge - - - Join the Community & Get Your Questions Answered: http://CabralSupportGroup.com - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular Supplements: > “The Dr. Cabral Daily Protocol” (This is what Dr. Cabral does every day!) - - - > Dr. Cabral Detox  (The fastest way to get well, lose weight, and feel great!) - - - > Daily Nutritional Support Shake  (#1 “All-in-One recommendation in my practice) - - - > Daily Fruit & Vegetables Blend  (22 organic fruit & vegetables “greens powder”) - - - > CBD Oil  (Full-spectrum, 3rd part-tested & organically grown) - - - > Candida/Bacterial Overgrowth, Leaky Gut, Parasite & Speciality Supplement Packages - - - > See All Supplements: https://equilibriumnutrition.com/collections/supplements  - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular At-Home Lab Tests: > Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (Test for mineral imbalances & heavy metal toxicity) - - - > Organic Acids Test (Test for 75 biomarkers including yeast & bacterial gut overgrowth, as well as vitamin levels) - - - > Thyroid + Adrenal + Hormone Test  (Discover your complete thyroid, adrenal, hormone, vitamin D & insulin levels) - - - > Adrenal + Hormone Test (Run your adrenal & hormone levels) - - - > Food Sensitivity Test (Find out your hidden food sensitivities) - - - > Omega-3 Test (Discover your levels of inflammation related to your omega-6 to omega-3 levels)

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… Let’s get started!    Lisa: Hi Dr. Cabral, I'm a long time listener for the last 3 years and I'm always sharing your podcasts to help others. I truly appreciate how you do daily podcasts because it helps keep me motivated on my way into work each morning.VERY BRIEF history: Kapha body type/ Struggle BIG TIME to lose any weight Done 2 of your 14 day detoxes completed the CBO protocol I'm 100% plantbased and do not cheat because I need to lose 40 lbs. and I know my body is still not healthy, but I do hope one day I can have a cheat meal. I have done most all labs through you. Adrenals and thyroid look good, but I still take your thyroid supplement. A little Estrogen Dominance and I do take your DIM. HTMA did show high aluminum. I'm ordering your heavy metal protocol today. The 2 labs left for me to take is the Toxicity lab and the Mold Toxicity lab. Both of my kids did your mold toxicity lab and both came back high for molds. We are starting them on your protocol over Christmas break. I have a infrared sauna and do 40 mins a day/5 days a week. I do not exercise enough, but do enjoy hot yoga twice a week. Honestly, I am feeling much better than I ever have in the past, even though I still know I have to have more toxicity because I can't lose weight. Besides the struggle to lose weight, I have severe shoulder blade pains. My Biomedical doctor put me on LDN and other anti-inflammatory supplements, but the pain is still there. I have eliminated every type of food that can cause inflammation: lectins, high oxalates, nightshades, and all the other foods. Question: When I do a 14 hour fast, the pain is much worse. Do you have idea as to why fasting makes my pain worse? Should I just stick with a 12 hour fast even though I'm the kapha body type? I already take your full spectrum magnesium and MANY other supplements from equilibrium.Thank you so much! Lisa Noel: Hi Dr. Cabral,In recent years I don't feel any effects of caffeine. I can drink a lot or a little or none, and I don't notice any effects. Currently I enjoy a cup of coffee and a cup of green tea a day. I'm curious about why I don't feel the effects of caffeine. Could it be I'm a fast metabolizer? Or could it possibly be a a clue related to other symptoms related to my current health? In 2015 I was diagnosed with CIRS (AKA Alzheimer's Type 3 according to Dr. Dale Bredesen). I turned around many of my inflammatory markers and symptoms with diet and lifestyle and mold avoidance. I'm curious b/c I heard you mention this low or no reaction to caffeine in one of your Alzheimer's podcasts. I have a few remaining symptoms, and I'm hoping your trainings and protocols can help me clear them all up. I'm so energized and uplifted by all that you do and share. Thank you for helping "tough nut, odd duck" cases like me!!! (Currently in week 2 of 21 Day Detox and eagerly awaiting 3 test results - OAT, Stool & HTMA - and coaching call) Lissette: When can we start a Dr Cabral Healthy mind, body ,soul book reviews. Is would allow us to share knowledge of the different cookbooks with healthy recipes, scientific investigations that are done around food , medicines etc. Also when will you organize a retreat ,convention etc to meet just ideas Thank you Jessi: Hello! Love love your show. My husband and I were wondering that ever since we have been more concious eaters and cut out gluten/dairy etc, we are more "sensitive". Like even if we cheat a little, we blow up w gas, acne, get an array of bad side effects. Meanwhile our friends/siblings who are no where near as healthy in terms of what they eat, can seem to eat whatever they want! They are also a bit overweight but seem to have no sensitivies. Is there a correlation? Do you get more sensitive as you clean out your body? Is it that once you are more "clean" you feel the bad food more than before when you may have built up a resistance to it? It almost doesn't seem fair that us "healthy eaters" are the sensitive ones and the overweight and unhealthy friends say " seeee look at you, what is the point you are eating healthy and not your body can't handel anything" ----- frustrating...... Please clarify. Thank you! Anthony: What are your thoughts Dr. Cabral on mouth breathing and health advocates who say to use tape over their mouths while you sleep?"Breathing through our mouth versus our nose can contribute to poor sleep, dry mouth, high blood pressure, migraines and more. When we breathe through our nose, we’re able to activate our parasympathetic nervous system. This means we’re more calm, relaxed, and ready for bed.” Jay: Hello,My daughter and I both have celiac disease,my daughter is 5 and when she starts to get sick I’ve always given her Echinacea for the first 3 days,The herb causes immune stimulating effects,I’ve always seen results in her recovery when I give her Echinacea. Should I stop giving it to her,will it cause long term problems?Do you recommend anything else as a alternative.

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:  Annette: Hello. I was recently told I have Sjogren's syndrome. I have low iron as well which is being treated by a hemotologist. I was told I have to start, and have for one day so far, meds. Plaquenil. I really would rather not do that, or at least only 1 pill per day instead of 2 because the rear side effect is retana / eye issues. I have not found a good site to explain in detail the foods I should be eating, they just say root vegetables, etc. I have found a couple of receipes, but you know of more, of a food plan I would appreciate it. Nicole: Hi There, Do you work with children, my son who is nearly 5 has major gut issues, SIBO I suspect from many antibiotics when he was a baby. He is getting fussier, and fussier and will barely eat anything. Im at a loss how to help him now. Do you have a program for kids that does not involve tablets.ThanksNicole Jennifer: My father was just diagnosed with IBM-Inclusion Body myositis. His muscles are already beginning to atrophy, he has lost grip in his hands and cannot use utensils or open doors, he has trouble swallowing, and has begun falling. His doctor simply told him to exercise and that was the only course of treatment. I am petrified by the progression of this disease and the toll it is taking on my father who I love greatly. I would appreciate any direction you could give me to assist him. Thank you! Genia: Hi Dr. Cabral. I'm a student of IHP and you are very much a part of my day with my IHP studies, videos of you teaching and podcasts. Thank you for being the master teacher that I highly respect and can relate to. You are a blessing to the world. I am so grateful to be your student. I had some health hiccups and doing my diligence with healing and feeling awesome. Because I have the brace gene and had a malignant cyst on my left ovary I am guided to screen always although I do not go for mammograms. I don't want to express a gene with extra radiation. I do ultra sounds, thermographs and MRIs, and lots of holistic self care. Please explain your views on mammograms for breast screening. With gratitude and love, Genia Daira: Hello Dr. Cabral,First and foremost, thank you for all that you do. Your podcast is my favorite and always my #1 listen at the beginning of the day. I am wondering how do you feel about the accuracy and importance of DEXA scans in terms of tracking body composition. I’m finding the lean mass fluctuations on a weekly basis, which I believe is primarily water weight. Correct me if I’m wrong. I’m trying to lose body fat (total 10lb) and while I’m eating healthy and working out 6 times a week I’m finding the body fat going up and lean mass going down. Should I stick with DEXA scans or really just pay attention on how I feel and look.

Cortisol isn't just one of your main fight or flight hormones, it's also a major player when it comes to weight gain... The reason for this is that cortisol begins to systematically raise blood sugar under stress... Typically this would be a good thing if you needed it in an emergency, but the problem is most of our modern-day stress is more chronic than acute in nature...

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… Let’s get started!    Alex: Dr. Cabral, thank you so much for your work. The info and protocols you share have literally given me my life back. I listened to your podcast on lectins and need some clarity. The Organic Acids test confirmed some yeast and bacteria overgrowth, and I am currently on month two of the CBO protocol. I did not have any parasites, hpylori or clostridia. I do not want to eat poultry/meat for welfare standard issues, and seafood is not very appetizing to eat (except wild salmon). Thankfully I am not allergic to eggs, so this has been my main source of protein. I noticed the vegan proteins on the sensitive gut guide are mainly legumes. Hemp hearts are great but leave me very hungry in between meals. I have been trying lentils and chickpeas, but still have painful and explosive gas which goes away when I eliminate legumes. I did not have any IGG sensitivities to legumes, but have avoided them for years due to symptoms. Should I rerun the food sensitivity and eat legumes the day before the test? Also, once I complete the CBO protocol would it be possible to digest these vegan legumes? I heard from another source that it's because there is not the bacteria present to breakdown the legumes, but adding certain strains of bacteria can help with digestion. I am wondering if the CBO probiotics will repopulate the gut with these bacteria. Should I try again, is there anything I can do to add these vegan proteins back into my diet or am I just to avoid them for life and occasionally eat poultry/meat to keep protein intake at a decent level? Thanks again Chanel: Dear Dr. Cabral, I am a new listener and have loved every minute. I appreciate your analytical, but practical and caring approach. I also appreciate how you put yourself in the listener’s shoes. Every day, I try to learn more about the microbiome and natural health by reading, listening to podcasts, docuseries, etc. I am writing in to obtain your perspective and guidance. My family and I are on a health journey. We’ve made a lot of changes over the last 1 ½-2 years. I’ve suffered with some health conditions and have made many diet & lifestyle changes in order to improve my health. I still have some things to work on and my goal is to include as many natural/holistic methods as possible in order to regain my health and may write in about my health challenges at a later date. My husband is in the process of making changes too. Most importantly, our three daughters (ages 5, 8 and 12) have been the catalysts for our diet & lifestyle shifts. I am writing in about our girls, primarily my middle daughter. I apologize in advance for the length of this email but will try to condense everything. I’ve been able to look back in hindsight and realize some of the things that brought us to this point. In 2017-2018, we incorporated a lot of wheat in our diet. I thought that was the healthier thing to do so we traded white bread and pasta, etc. for wheat. This, along with an overall less than nutritiously dense diet, regular antibiotic prescriptions, hectic lifestyle, etc. more than likely, contributed to the decline of their gut and digestive health. Our children began to experience many health and digestive issues. Not long after this “wheat swap”, my oldest daughter began to randomly break out in hives. My youngest was diagnosed with GERD and then my middle was diagnosed with GERD along with other conditions. My middle daughter also experienced continuous reflux, stomach pain, bloating, nausea, headaches…you name it! These things heightened last spring; traditional medicine, doctors and specialists were not able to help us and may have set us back with acid blockers. This was a very hard time for our family and for me as a mother as I watched my children suffer. My middle daughter had a feeling of malaise, had low energy and was just not herself. She was also having moments of getting hot/flushed, with rapid heartbeat, headache, stomachache, dizziness, etc. We saw a naturopathic doctor in the spring 2019 and she was very helpful at the time. I also ordered a Diagnostic Solutions GI Map stool test from another practitioner for my middle daughter and the results showed high opportunistic bacteria, extremely low Sec IgA and low normal/”good” bacteria. We were put on a protocol and after treatment, things improved, but my younger two daughters take Miralax to prevent constipation. We removed gluten and dairy and embraced a whole-food, plant-based diet, incorporating organic, grass-fed & finished meats, etc. basically removed most candy & sugar, improved hydration and sleep, as well as slowed down our lifestyle. I thought that we were done with health issues, but my younger two daughters were diagnosed with lichen sclerosis (after many doctor & specialist visits) during the summer of 2019. We recently began seeing another holistic practitioner. She’s been helpful and we’ve incorporated supportive supplements to provide key nutrients that their bodies were missing, as well as some natural based prevention methods. This practitioner uses a Zyto energy scan. I’m skeptical of the scan and don’t fully understand it, but felt it had low risk and low cost so it was worth a try. My daughters and myself had the scan done and the results showed many different types of viruses (to include lyme and co-infections), bacteria, fungi, metals, parasites, microbes, mold, dysbiosis, etc. for all of us. However, my middle daughter is starting to experience some of the same symptoms as last spring, but to a lesser degree. I am very concerned to say the least. I feel that gut & digestive repair is a big piece to this puzzle. She’s had many other symptoms too, such as skin rashes, peeling and itching, an ulcer on her gum, and most recently, we’ve been referred to the children’s orthopedic department for unexplained ankle pain and knee pain that significantly impacts her mobility and to neurology for tingling on the bottom of her feet. I realize that this a lot of information, but I wanted to give you some background on my children. Another MRI was ordered, along with some labs. I’ve ordered your OAT for all of my girls, along with your stool, mold and toxicity tests for my middle daughter. We want to be through and comprehensive in our approach. We don’t want to return to this place of ill-health ever again. I know you can only give advice, but if this were you & your daughters, what would you do? We are desperate to rebalance the body and restore health to my child. We live in a rural community and there are not many practitioners that explore and practice natural-based medicine, along with comprehensive testing. Needless to say, our lives have been disrupted and we’re looking to find a place of peace. I realize you won’t be able to answer this immediately, but wanted your direct feedback.Concerning my middle daughter: *What else could/should we be evaluating or exploring-tests or labs? *What do we do in the meantime while we wait on test results? *Do some of these symptoms sound like an issue with the vagal nerve or gastroparesis? *What are your thoughts on the energy/Zyto Scan? *How would I know if we actually have all of the microbes, infections, bacteria and viruses, etc. reported from the energy scan and the best protocol to treat these things? Where do we start? Please help. Any guidance and/or direction is appreciated. Thank you for your time. ~Chanel Anthony: Hi Dr. Cabral, I’m a big fan and have been listening to you since you were interviewed by the MindPump crew. My wife is in her mid-40’s. She normally has difficulty sleeping however it has gotten worse over the past 6 months. Typically, it lasts around a week and is right before she gets her period. We both believe it is hormonal , common, but not normal. I searched previous podcasts and didn’t find anything. Hoping you can shed some light on the possible etiologies and point is in the right direction. Keep up the great work and thank you for all of the knowledge that you share. Happy Holidays! Anthony Rose: Does too much sugar in older mans diet effect his prostrate levels?? Anonymous: Dr. Cabral, I am writing to let you know that I would love to have you record a follow up to podcast #1306:Mystery Illness Solved:Client Case Study (TWT). My story is similar to your complicated client in that I was diagnosed with a Myeloproliferative cancer in January 2018. I have primary myelofibrosis with a component of Polycythemia Vera (needing an occasional phlebotomy due to hematocrit >45). I also have a history of Hashimotos Thyroiditis (currently on watch and wait) and reflux diagnosed a few years before. I have never had any other health problems in my life andI have been fairly active and healthy. November 2017 when my abnormal bloodwork was found I started an Anti-inflammatory diet and was ultimately able to bring my TPO antibodies from 150 to 70 and heal my reflux. Unfortunately as I continued trying for the next year to heal myself I was not able to improve my blood work with the myelofibrosis. In November 2018 I began working with a Functional Medicine practitioner and he found that I had high levels of mycotoxins, mercury, gut dysbiosis, and parasites. For the next year we worked to resolve and eradicate everything we found with the necessary protocols. I have been dry brushing, juicing, sauna sessions, coffee enemas, DCD, intermittent fasting, weekly 24 hour fast, supplementing, and on a anti-inflammatory diet. I even enrolled in IHP level 1 and 2 in January 2019 in order to further my education. I was trained in conventional medicine as a Physician Assistant and now I feel I could never practice the same way again due to what I have learned in experiencing this health journey. I feel better than I ever have in the past 20 years, the problem is, is that the Myelofibrosis continues to progress and we are at a point where my oncologist is suggesting I need to start on low dose chemotherapy. SO....I would love to hear what you found with your client and how you approached it and your results. I am so thankful for finding you and your wonderful community. Your positive demeanor and messages inspires me in my journey. Thank you for all you do. Rose: Hi, I had my thyroid removed over 25 years ago {goiter growth} I"m on thyroid med.

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:  Simon: Hi Stephen. Thanks so much for the amazing service you provide to us all! I discovered you a couple of months ago and have been binge-listening and reading you book ever since. My wife and I have blastocystis and my wife also has dientaboeba. Whilst I am doing the parasite protocol and others, my wife is doing two courses of Paromomycin (as she has a limited amount of time and wants the most effective result). Putting aside the question of whether she is making the right decision (I would prefer she avoided antibiotics), I am hoping to add to minimise the negative effects whilst maxamizing the effectiveness of her treatment. I was wondering: a) whether the a biofilm disruptor would assist with treating blasto with antibiotics, and if so should she take before or during treatment? b) would the CBO protocol approach to probiotics be appropriate after antibiotics? I.e populate with saccharomyces boulardii before/during/one month after; then acidophilus bifidus; then a broad spectrum? Note she wont do the CBO protocol as we will be trying for a baby shortly after the antibiotics. I am also feeding us a diet rich in antiparasitics (clove, cinnamon, garlic, pumpkin seeds) and have suggested she do the 7-14 day detox before treatment. I'd love your thoughts on the above and any related issues. Thanks so much and ayubowan! Cheryl: Hi Dr. Cabral, I am on week 2 day 3 of your 21 detox. I have lost 12 pounds to date- simply amazing!!! I waited too long between meals (4 hours). 2 times I noticed a sweet taste in my teeth just before my meal. Once I eat it goes away. What is the reason for the sweet taste??? Just note my brain fog melted away, I have had a surge of energy since week one day 3. So I have been very active not excercising but cleaning and moving-I surpassed my 10k steps on the detox!!!!. I am looking forward to taking your courses and my future lab tests. Much gratitude on my journey towards wellness.Cheryl Ryan: Hello Dr. Cabral, thanks for taking the time to answer questions! I have listened to many of your podcasts regarding histamines. To keep things short, I just wanted to know the difference between taking a supplement like Histpro and a supplement containing diamine oxidase? I realize rebalancing the gut, removing any overgrowth, etc is working more towards figuring out the root cause. But my question is for relief in the short term while you are healing. I realize the Histpro has multiple good componenets like quercetin, vitamin C, etc. Just wanted to know what would be stronger or more beneficial in short term, of course assuming you are eating a lower histamine diet and the whole lifestyle approach. Thanks, Ryan Cara: Hi Dr. Cabral! After 23 years of wearing contacts, I'm going in for Lasik in January. It took me a long time to come to this decision, but now the technology is amazing and we have an exceptional doctor here in So Cal. Prior to the procedure, they have you take an eye supplement as well as a fish oil. I asked the amounts of DHA/EPA/Omega 3's required and the reply was that their supplement has "DHA Omega-3 at least 800mg and total Omega-3’s 2000mg." It looks like EN's fish oil surpasses that requirement with a total of 2.6g of total Omegas. Do you have an eye supplement that you would recommend with the lutein and zeaxanthin? Cara: Hi Dr. Cabral, Did you catch Ben Greenfields interview of Dr. Tan and his research on Vitamin E? He claims that tocopherols are toxic and that tocotrienols are the form of Vitamin E that is most beneficial? It was a very interesting podcast and I'm Curious your thoughts on this. Thank you! Maurice: Hello Dr. Cabral, I'm 29 and was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis approximately one year ago. I decided to decline conventional treatment after being inspired by my brother Kevin, who is also an IHP 1&2. Since, I've conducted quite some research and have nearly perfected my diet, consisting of very low amount of saturated fat and processed foods, a regular Omega 3 intake, and mainly plant based meals (except for one weekly cheat meal). I work out regularly, do the sauna, and get my daily D3. I listen to your podcast regularly and find your advice very beneficial! I'm currently on the 7-Day Detox and am doing the CBO protocol right after Thanksgiving. I do plan on having the labs done, BUT the way my bank account is set up...Overall I feel good, but am deathly scared to relapse again and the thought of deteriorating. Do you have any additional lifestyle/diet suggestions? Also, is Iherrmitte's Sign (the brief, intense tingling sensations shooting down my spine when I tilt my head) reversible? Lastly, I recently heard of the angioplasty aka liberation therapy for the Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency (CCSVI) treatment, which has been shown to provide drastic improvements to MS patients. What is your knowledge and take on it?Thank you so much for sharing your expertise and your continuous inspiration!

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… Let’s get started!    Jamie: Hi Dr. Cabral, thanks for all you do! I would like to ask you about how to be healthy after bariatric surgery. I had the gastric sleeve on March 1st 2019 and found your podcast later that same month. Had I found you earlier I likely would NOT have had the surgery. However, I believe things happen for a reason so maybe this is my path. Now, my question is I can't eat as much at one serving and so I get hungry faster/need more meals throughout the day and I am also worried I'm not getting enough nutrition. I am starting the 21 detox then I will go into the CBO protocol and finally heal & seal. I have been drinking the DNS smoothie every morning for about 4 months. What advice can you give me & others like me to be very healthy after bariatric surgery. Thanks! Sahsa: Hello Dr. Cabral, thank you for the wisdom you share with the community everyday. I know that I need to start detoxes, but there is something in the daily nutritional support shakes that is exacerbating headaches. I’ve tried it on 2 separate occasions 4 months apart, and both times my headaches began. It makes me nervous to use it or any of the detox pills. I’m able to use some of your other products like the balanced zinc and sinus support without any issues. How would you suggest doing a detox without the shakes or the detox capsules? Thanks for all you do. Laura: I am a healthy, active 31 year old female recently diagnosed with a schwannoma or neurofibroma tumor, 3cm big, under my right collar bone near my brachial plexus, likely nerve C6 or C7. Surgery to have it removed is Dec 2. I’ve had shoulder/arm pain in certain yoga postures for the past year and could never figure out where it was coming from until a failed lymph node biopsy pointed the doctors in the right direction. For the past year, I’ve easily tolerated the minimal nerve pain, but ever since the biopsy a month ago, I’ve been in moderate pain and haven’t been able to do yoga. I’m very worried about permanent nerve damage from this - since they aggressively poked a nerve that they thought was a lymph node. Is that possible? Is there anything you can recommend that will help? Seeing as how you will likely see this after my Dec 2 surgery, do you have any tips on recovery from nerve surgery? Not being able to do yoga (I practice Bikram yoga daily) brings my anxiety and depression back in full swing. Thank you for all you do!! Nicole: Hello, I have a question I didn’t want to ask on the Facebook group as my daughter would be so horrified if anyone knew. So I have a 15 year old daughter who for most of her life has really struggled with pinworms . We can seem to get a handle on them. We use the combantrin and do the second and even have done third doses. They seem to come back. Yes we have done all the things, washing, nails short, washed bedding everyday even for a week. Clean room top to bottom.. all the things.What can we do for her? I don’t love putting all this medication into her . Please keep in mind asking her to eat super clean or zero sugar is prob not going to happen, again she’s a teen . But any ideas ??? Thank you Nicole Rachaell: The past 8 months or so I’ve been getting dizzy for what seems like only seconds at a time but it comes and goes all day long. It feels like everything stops and I’m going to pass out then it passes until the next time. My dr thinks it’s anxiety and isn’t concerned since I’ve never actually passed out. I’m only 28, female, and want to find a solution to this because it’s extremely hard to go about my day feeling like this. Where do I even start? Shae: Are silicone baking mats safe? I have been using Unbleached parchment paper but want to cut down on trash. I also don’t want to go back to cooking on foil or plain metal baking sheets. Cheryl: Can I naturally dissolve a Lipoma on my back without surgery ? It's the size of a half dollar , and I have tried taking chickweed orally for 2 months with no results. I would appreciate any advice you can give.

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:  James: Hi Dr. Cabral I wondered if there was any way you recommend to tan the skin naturally!? Unfortunately I come from a country (UK) where it is very very rarely sunny so its not really possible to get this from the sun. Possibly even some diet tips to improve glowingness (probably not a word I know) of the skin? Any tips much appreciated, thank you :) James B: Hi doc I wonder if you could break down stomach noises that I used to hear all the time from my own stomach, and that I always hear from other peoples. What I've found is that when i am eating healthy foods that I can digest properly I almost never get any noises, as soon as I eat or drink a food i cannot tolerate very well, i hear noises from my stomach, these are like gurgling noises. Is it that the foods cannot be digested properly and are fermenting in my gut, which causes something to be released and that's the noise we hear? (just riffing here). In any case, why do some foods not make noise but other foods do, and if we hear noises coming from our bellies can we assume anything, such as: "this food is not agreeing with me" OR "i have possibly aten too much today" etc. Be keen to know your thoughts. Thank you so much mentor Cabral, James Cara: Hi, I'm one of your IHP students having completed Level 1 and working on Level 2. I have a friend who has had a tremendous amount of mystery pain and rashes over 2 months. - She has a 3 year old born via emergency cesarean - DHEA was 900 before 2nd pregnancy; amenorrhea for 3 years, history of over exercising, but stopped to get pregnant with 2nd child - Healthy pregnancy, but right before delivery got hand foot and mouth virus - Emergency cesarean right after HFM virus - Nursing - 1 month postpartum; sinus congestion, sore throat, severe joint pain, couldn't lift arms, pain was worse in the mornings and evenings, MD ran bloodwork and showed EBV and thought she was having mono. - Started to get better, started running again and then got rash on legs, very swollen ankles, MD now says its HSP and may be what caused the 2 month long illness. The rash is so bad some spots are open wounds and the MD wants her on heavy dose steroids for a week - At the beginning of all of this I recommended; Dr Cabral Foundation Level 2, plus folate (nursing), Vitamin D (at least 4,000 IUs, extra Vitamin C, yoga, no running, epsom salt baths, meditation. -She is open to running labs; recommended OAT, FST, Stool test, however she cannot do any detox protocols - I looked into HSP and it looks like its a form of vasculitis and that appears to be autoimmune based to me - She eats all organic, well-sourced meats/fish, very fit- Rash continued to get worse especially if she "over did" anything and she decided to take the steroids, knowing its'a "bandaid" but she was literally crawling around on her hands and knees to take care of her toddler and baby. This is obviously a complex case because she's a nursing mom and will probably nurse until the baby is 2-3 years. Thank you for your additional insight in this case! (Dr Cabral Detox group and IHP groups didn't really want to touch on this case... I can see why). Erin: Hi Dr. Cabral, Is there a reliable test to measure your level of stomach acid, other than doing a supplemental HCL challenge? I suspect that I have very low stomach acid, but HCL supplementation is contraindicated for me. I tried searching through previous podcasts and couldn't find one that discussed a test for low stomach acid (perhaps I overlooked it?). I take digestive enzymes to give my digestion a boost, but I think improving stomach acid is the key to a lot of my issues. I am beyond grateful to you for your tireless work and dedication in getting out the message of true health and healing! Christine: Hi Dr. Cabral, I am a 43 yr old woman dealing with some chronic pain that I find concerning. Some background: growing up I had chronic back pain on and off until my mid 30's, temporarily helped with chiropractic adjustments. I then did a food sensitivity test and removed those foods that triggered inflammation and sealed my gut with your protocol. I had no pain at all for 2.5 yrs when in May 2019 I went for a 3 mi run and have had horrible pain ever since in my back, neck and right shoulder. I have seen a chiropractor and used the Mackenzie method (back extension and neck retraction) to help alleviate pain, only for it to come back one month later. I have very healthy habits including a clean diet, active lifestyle, etc. In March of 2019 my brother was diagnosed with MS (SAD diet, poor lifestyle choices, etc I'm sure helped triggered this) and my sister has had back issues too. I know that I have poor detoxication pathways and do things to rectify this, my omegas are 3:1 and any inflammatory markers have come back with in functional medicine range. I also did an OATS test in the spring and found that I have klebsiella (as well as HPV), and high cortisol. We talk about how low-grade chronic inflammation can have devastating effects on the body and this leaves me worried. I am trying to find the source-is it mechanical, virus/bacteria acting up, or bit of both? I'm in constant pain, grouchy and feel fatigued most of the time even though I go to bed by 9pm or earlier ( I do wake 1-2x during night). I have worked very hard on lowering my cortisol levels and although I havent retested, feel that it is under control. It may help to know that I am almost done breastfeeding my baby, which i'm sure contributes to neck/back pain, but I can't help but think something else is going on since I have cut out any running/strength training and only walk, yoga/pilates and recovery work since May. Any advice is deeply appreciated. Thank you!! Sarah: Hey Dr. Cabral! Thank you SO MUCH for all that you do! You're like a soul brother to me and I'm so glad I've found you. I've run the big 5 done, found out I had candida among many other imbalances in my body. I've done the CBO protocol now as well as supplementation and other protocols based on lab results and recommendations. I still have however, a rash of some kind around my anus that is pink and pretty itchy and I can't figure out why, what it is, or what's causing it. I've already invested a lot into lab tests so I'd rather not retest again if possible (I'm wondering if this is still a sign of candida?), but I don't know so I'm wondering if you have any idea on what this might be and/or what to do about it? I've tried putting melaleuca, lavender, sesame oil, coconut oil, etc. on it and nothing seems to help. The only time I've noticed it gets a little better is when I do your FM detox, but even then it does not go away. I used to have a spot similar to this at the back of my neck/scalp that is gone now after the work I've done detoxing, cleaning my diet and rebalancing my body, but this seems to be the last thing I cannot figure out how to get rid of. I'd love to try getting pregnant soon but I want to make sure I've done what I can and need to do in my own body before I go into that next season of life. And one last thing! I developed what appears to be a cyst on my inner thigh over a year ago and it has not gone away. Do you have any recommendations on what to do for eliminating cysts?

In my opinion debates about whether protein requirements should be .8g/kg vs 1g/kg are not really moving this industry forward... What we need to be talking about is general needs for the majority of people and where they should be sourcing their protein... And, another topic that should be brought up more often is the chronic protein deficiency (or surplus) in a diet versus a once and awhile occurrence... This is why on today’s #CabralConcept 1418 I’d like to share with you an unbiased look at the pros and cons of protein as well as how much you really need - Enjoy the show! - - -   Show Notes & Resources: http://StephenCabral.com/1418 - - - Dr. Cabral's New Book, The Rain Barrel Effect https://amzn.to/2H0W7Ge - - - Join the Community & Get Your Questions Answered: http://CabralSupportGroup.com - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular Supplements: > “The Dr. Cabral Daily Protocol” (This is what Dr. Cabral does every day!) - - - > Dr. Cabral Detox  (The fastest way to get well, lose weight, and feel great!) - - - > Daily Nutritional Support Shake  (#1 “All-in-One recommendation in my practice) - - - > Daily Fruit & Vegetables Blend  (22 organic fruit & vegetables “greens powder”) - - - > CBD Oil  (Full-spectrum, 3rd part-tested & organically grown) - - - > Candida/Bacterial Overgrowth, Leaky Gut, Parasite & Speciality Supplement Packages - - - > See All Supplements: https://equilibriumnutrition.com/collections/supplements  - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular At-Home Lab Tests: > Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (Test for mineral imbalances & heavy metal toxicity) - - - > Organic Acids Test (Test for 75 biomarkers including yeast & bacterial gut overgrowth, as well as vitamin levels) - - - > Thyroid + Adrenal + Hormone Test  (Discover your complete thyroid, adrenal, hormone, vitamin D & insulin levels) - - - > Adrenal + Hormone Test (Run your adrenal & hormone levels) - - - > Food Sensitivity Test (Find out your hidden food sensitivities) - - - > Omega-3 Test (Discover your levels of inflammation related to your omega-6 to omega-3 levels) - - - > Stool Test (Use this test to uncover any bacterial, h.

We all want more happiness and prosperity, but the question is how do we get there? And if we do arrive, do we know what the specific actions were that took us there? Because if not, we're destined to fall right back into longer periods of unhappiness searching for those same answers again...

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… Let’s get started!    Naama: Hi, I am interested in getting help with losing weight, overall energy and reaching my goals! Much appreciated, Naama Marie: Hello! Do you believe that liposomal vitamin c is more beneficial than „regular“ vit c? If so, do you have any brand recommendations? Greetings from the UK! Jordan: Hi dr Cabral thank you for your podcasts I love listening to them! I wanted to ask you a question that no doctor has been able to help me with. I have had vagina thrush for longer than I can remember. The symptoms come and go same with being positive on any tests. I even tested positive for candida glabrata at one point. I did take quite a lot of antibiotics at one point for strep throat when I was around 17. I am now 22 and have taken every possible candida prescription out there for this. I haven’t taken any antibiotics for over a year now and refuse to go to a M.D. as they just seem to prescribe more items that won’t work. I came off birth control 2 years ago and live a pretty healthy lifestyle. I don’t take any other medication and am generally healthy otherwise- although I did have a thyroid that was slightly slow according to my naturopathic doctor. Last time we checked he did say my numbers were better due to eating and taking vitamins to balance that out. We have not been able to solve my thrush condition tho and nothing has been able to solve it. Please please please let me know if you have any suggestions, natural remedies, or what to buy! Thank you so much in advance! Darren:Hey Dr. Cabral. How is the family doing? Hope they're okay. I'm having a debate amongst a group of friends about male circumcision. We all know female circumcision is an atrocity unfortunately carried out in some parts of the world and I was also saying that cutting a male's foreskin hampers him later in in life. This is a friendly debate but I said I'll ask someone who I believe would give a honest view without taking sides. That's you. Are there pros & cons to male circumcision? If you had a male child would you recommend it or would let them make the decision on their own later? Please keep up good work. Gayle: Hello Dr. Cabral, Thank you for all you do, YOU are very appreciated by so many! I am a new listener to your podcast and I have learned a great deal from you already. My husband and I both purchased your 7-day detox but have not yet completed it. We plan to do this together to add to our success. My question is regarding Diabletes Insipidus. I was diagnosed with this in 2002 after having my 5th child and take an ADH (Desmopressin Acetate) to manage it. I am a long distance runner, yoga instructor and love to lift weights in the gym. Would having this ailment have anything to do with also having Raynauds? Any advice for "growing out of" DI and/or how to control Raynauds when I work out(especially in the winter) would be greatly appreciated. Warmly, Gayle James B: Hi Dr Cabral, can you please tell me (and thousands of others) what the "lesser known" vitamins and minerals that are essential for muscle growth. I am currently on a weight gain plan trying to build muscle and I know I can eat all the protein and calories in the world but if i'm not getting the correct minerals and nutrients i'm sure it will be much harder to build muscle? I have heard the B complex vitamins are really important to build muscle (I have purchased a bottle from you before!) And I have also heard green veggies are really important for muscle (not sure why). But i'm just wondering what else I should be taking into account other than just protein, carbs & calories when trying to build muscle. Thanks again..

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:  Noel: Hi Dr. Cabral I'd love to hear more about Mimosa Pudica seed. After using it for over 10 months, my girth has decreased. Wow. I think it's binding or "scrubbing" biofilm or "mucoid plagues" like crazy. Would love to hear more of your thoughts about this as a part of detox. fyi - I've order a few tests from Equilibrium Nutrition and will begin your 21 Day Detox very soon. I've also just begun the IHP certification program. I'm feeling so energized by all that you offer and share. Erick: I have been trying to remedy my vertical nail ridges, mainly on my left hand, mainly on my ring and pinky finger, with deep ridges. I have been doing the DCD protocols for over a year now and they still haven't lessened. I have done CBO, heavy metal, intestinal cleanse, at least 6 months of healthy gut support, parasite cleanse and eat clean. I also take addl B vitamins, D, Magnesium, C, and probiotic-all Equilibrium products. As you can tell, I am a fan of your information and all has worked very well for me. Just trying to get to the bottom of why the body isn't absorbing nutrients. I am a vata-pitta body type. Thank you for having the mindset you do on all! Anonymous: Hi Dr. Cabral, I haven't heard you talk much about Men's prostate. As a younger man, in my 30's, I'm a bit concerned with the health of my prostate. Ever since I can remember it has taken me a longer than normal to begin urinating when I'm at the toilet while others seem to be able just fire away the second they unzip their pants. Also, it oftentimes feels like I don't entirely empty my bladder and I find myself getting up in the middle of the night to pee pretty regularly. I'm a pretty healthy individual. I'm on your daily foundational protocol and regularly do moderate exercise. I've had Chlamydia in the past which I took care of through antibiotics but still to this day I can sometimes feel a slight burning sensation when I urinate. It's very hard for me to feel fully rested and rejuvenated as I feel like my immune system is always a bit compromised. I also believe that I may have ringworm or some type of fungal infection of the skin which also has caused me to experience itchy anus. Overall I just feel like something in my body isn't right. Either mold, candida, virus, or some type of low grade infection that I can't seem to get rid of. I've done the parasite cleanse and 21 day detox. What would you recommend for next steps in getting well? Thank you so much for all that you do. Hollie: Hi Dr Stephen Cabral , Thanks for taking the time to answer this question. I really love the podcasts. I’m 37 , have had one child 4 years ago , I’ve never had weight issues , even after having my daughter I bounced back within 6 months . In the last year the weight has been piling on - particularly around my mid section. I eat a plant based diet / exercise as often as I can - walking at least 10,000 steps a day , plus a bit of interval training when I can. My daughter and I are an active family. I’ve noticed cellulite on the front of my legs , shocked as I’ve never had cellulite before. My skin appears to have lost elasticity on my legs. My hormones seem fine - from a recent blood test , my cycle regular now after having my daughter . Sleep isn’t great , digestive issues like bloating occurs daily. I’m heavy now than when I was 9 months pregnant. I’ve been under enormous stress for almost 2 years , but things have gotten better recently.Any insight would be helpful - thank you Hollie John: Hi Dr. Cabral, I'm interested in becoming a functional medicine doctor, but I'm having a tough time deciding between naturopathic and osteopathic schools. Could you speak about the pros and cons of both, and which do you recommend to people looking to open a functional medicine practice? James: Hey Dr Cabral! Just wanted to get your opinion on something I was thinking about today. It seems clear to me that ancient civilisations, traditions and medicines were in many ways far more advanced than we are today, and without all the wonderful technology we have. Relating it back to health - hippocrates once said all disease begins in the gut, something we seem to be discovering only now. In Ayurveda, mint is known to be cooling to the body, and I recently heard that in some studies, peppermint tricked the nerves of the liver into thinking it was cold and induced hepatothermic abilities. I’m just curious to hear your opinion on why and how they knew so much, so long ago. Particularly with your expertise in Ayurveda - was this stuff just trial and error? I find it hard to understand how they had all this knowledge without the testing capabilities we have today. I guess that’s a million $ question hey, I just wondered your opinion as someone I highly respect!

Probably none of us are going to ever be gold medalist's in the Olympic games, but that doesn't mean we can't learn from the very best... In my opinion, the fastest way to get results is to model success - And it's hard to dispute the strategies and tactics of world champions... The interesting part of studying champions in their sport is that some of the ways they rise to the top are completely contradictory to what we would expect...

We have some big plans to unveil this coming January, but before we do I'd like to teach you 5 factors that you've most likely never been told when it comes to losing weight and burning body fat... The reasons why these principles are overlooked is because they work at a much deeper level on your metabolism and not simply on the surface... This means that the tactics you'll be using are not as obvious, but they lead to even greater results over a period of 3-6 weeks.

If you're suffering from brain fog, fatigue, weight gain, or wellness issues it very may well have to do with your ability to regulate blood sugar levels...

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… Let’s get started!    Ryan: Whats up Dr. Cabral, I really think what you are sharing with the world is great. I have been listening to so many of your podcasts recently, and am so grateful I found them. I will just ask my question outright. Are there, or could there potentially be options for patients who received Radio-Active Iodine therapy to reverse the damage done to the thyroid? Somewhat similar to you, by the time I was in my late teens I was completely burning out and after a long bout of Mono at 18 I was later diagnosed with Graves Disease (not until I was 23, but I am certain this was the case after I was diagnosed with EBV). Anyhow I had done so much guess work and boughten so many supplements to help my heath all through my late teens and early twenties. Unfortunately I did not understand what it meant to truly live a healthy holistic lifestyle till about the age 25 to 26 right after I got the radiation done. Ever since I have been fully entrenched in functional medicine/holistic learning, but also struggling with unlearning all the harmful lifestyle choices that lead to me developing Graves. I am awaiting my Hair and mineral test results, and will be doing some of the other labs in the upcoming month or so, but am waiting to see if any promotions are run in a few weeks for the holidays. Are there supplements I can take for possible scarring and tissue damage done? Could it make any sense to see stem cell availability to rejuvenate the gland? I am on 1 grain of Nature Throid but my Naturopath seems to think it is fine to only test my total T4 and T3, which are low bottom range. My hands are still cold, I have low energy, and I do not feel adequate. I have always done my own testing even before having this Naturopath, because no doctors would test what I found to be beneficial through my own research. Conventional Medicine had me on Levothyroxine early on which was not helpful, and through my own testing I found my RT3 to always be extremely elevated. My Naturopath seems to think that this is because my albumin is elevated, with low globulin, and elevated creatinine. Basically having left kidney atrophy she thinks I just have to manage it through lifestyle forever, and deal with the problem. It is frustrating because I have order the 4 Iron labs, ZRT 4 point saliva testing, both Vitamin D tests, B12, and many other beneficial labs, yet she only looks at lab ranges and no optimality. I have been reading non stop any and all book recommendations I get from people like you or Paul Chek for instance. I am currently reading Dr. Jensons guide to Better Bowel Care. And it is awesome information, I cannot wait to run my organic acids test. I am just sick of every doctor I have not being open or willing to constant learning themselves. Or telling me they wont run this or that, or that you need to come in and pay $100 to get your refill of Nature throid and talk about how its going. Finding the ability to test these root causal problems through functional medicine lab testing will I believe change my life. I think about my health non stop, and have since I was young. Cannot wait to find more out about my health, and I am thankful for all that I have been forced to learn over the years, as I believe it will shape my future. I am looking forward to eventually becoming an IHP! Thanks! Kerry: Hi Dr Cabral, Thanks for answering my question today. I have learnt so much from your podcast- thank you for your commitment with sharing your knowledge. I have recently completed your IHP lvl 1 & 2 - the course was amazing! I’m using the information to heal those in my community and also my family with amazing results.I have a child on the Autism spectrum we have done so much work with her over the past 3 years to heal her sensitive system and can proudly say she’s developing along side her peers and thriving in life- but still has some healing to do. We have done your parasite protocol which was amazing and saw one of her last autisms - persistent stimming, disappear, almost over night. We then started your Children’s CBO protocol and almost from the beginning saw massive flare ups of autistic behaviours such as OCD, fears, stimming, rigidity, poor communication, toe walking and anxiety - to the level they were 12 months ago, prior to a massive amount of healing. While I know that this type of flair up can happen when healing, and I’m ok with it and will soldier on with the protocol, I’d really like to know why this happens. I love to hear what you have to say on this matter as I plan on specialising in this area of health - helping families and children with Autism. I feel having a justification for the flairs will help parents persist with healing protocols and understanding that this is “normal”. Regression can be really difficult for a parent to deal with especially when they have had some relief of symptoms - I have spent the day trolling the internet for some answers but have come up with nothing so I hope you might be able to shed some light on this. Many many thanks! Alan: Why do you call the Show Notes and Resources section - "Show notes" as there are none? Joanna: Hi Dr. Cabral what i am concerning about is Daily Fruit & Vegetable Blend contains a lot of berries and citric acid - Is this ok? DB:  Can you recommend tips or diet and lifestyle for a teenager dealing with cystic fibrosis. Van City: When feeling sick on occasion what do you recommend eating I don't eat as much wheat anymore but my go to is toast? Joanna: Hi dr cabral I have been having this ongoing upper left abdominal discomfort for almost 1 year now. Where the stomach is and now radiates to the upper left back. I have had multiple tests, endoscopy was all clear, abdominal ultrasound did not show any gallstones, blood test early this year to check pancreatic enzymes was normal, i take hcl and enzymes with every meal. It gets worse after a meal, sometimes when stress or after exercise but mainly after meals. I just can't pin point what it is. Iv tried everything. When im relaxed or only eating shakes for eg i dont get any feeling. For eg when i did the 21 day detox the 2 fasting days i had no upper sensation but the day i introduced food it came back and was worse like a stitch in the upper left stomach. Its a tough one do you have any insight if this could possibly be pancreatitis as the pain radiates to the upper left back? How could you naturally treat pancreatitisMany thanks joanna   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! - - - Show Notes & Resources:  http://StephenCabral.com/1409 - - - Dr. Cabral's New Book, The Rain Barrel Effect https://amzn.to/2H0W7Ge - - - Join the Community & Get Your Questions Answered: http://CabralSupportGroup.com - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular Supplements: > “The Dr. Cabral Daily Protocol” (This is what Dr. Cabral does every day!) - - - > Dr. Cabral Detox  (The fastest way to get well, lose weight, and feel great!) - - - > Daily Nutritional Support Shake  (#1 “All-in-One recommendation in my practice) - - - > Daily Fruit & Vegetables Blend  (22 organic fruit & vegetables “greens powder”) - - - > CBD Oil  (Full-spectrum, 3rd part-tested & organically grown) - - - > Candida/Bacterial Overgrowth, Leaky Gut, Parasite & Speciality Supplement Packages - - - > See All Supplements: https://equilibriumnutrition.com/collections/supplements  - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular At-Home Lab Tests: > Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (Test for mineral imbalances & heavy metal toxicity) - - - > Organic Acids Test (Test for 75 biomarkers including yeast & bacterial gut overgrowth, as well as vitamin levels) - - - > Thyroid + Adrenal + Hormone Test  (Discover your complete thyroid, adrenal, hormone, vitamin D & insulin levels) - - - > Adrenal + Hormone Test (Run your adrenal & hormone levels) - - - > Food Sensitivity Test (Find out your hidden food sensitivities) - - - > Omega-3 Test (Discover your levels of inflammation related to your omega-6 to omega-3 levels) - - - > Stool Test (Use this test to uncover any bacterial, h.

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:  Darcy: I love eating very spicy foods on a daily basis and drinking lemon water often, and for a cheat meal once in awhile I will have pizza or pasta with marinara sauce. The other day I think this way of eating collectively led to my issue of waking up at 3am with severe chest pain. Every deep breath or movement seemed to make it worse. My wife has had acid reflux many times before and coached me through it I had an antacid and a glass of cows milk(which so many people say help so much and it worked for me) I ended up sleeping in almost a sitting up positing because laying down intensified the pain. I am 37 and it was the first time I've had this what can I do to make this my last? Why does tomato sauce affect so many people negatively especially as we age such as myself this never happened in my youth and I eat so clean now. Raw tomatoes eaten or put in smoothies cause no issue but the sauce from tomatoes cause reflux or heartburn please explain why. It took about 3 says to fully recover. Thanks for all you do. Neeks: Hey Dr. Cabral. I have a small bump at my upper inner lip. I believe it was caused via an allergic reaction to a lipstick brand or something. I visited my ENT and he diagnosed it as a retention cyst. He recommends surgery to remove it. He says sometimes one can bite it off but mine is in an awkward position to do so. It doesn't hurt or anything but I would like it to go away. Is there any means aside surgery for someone to get rid of it? My brother says to try high doses vitamin C and NAC but he's no doctor and I would like to receive advice from someone who's qualified like yourself. As always keep up great work. Noel: Hi Dr. Cabral, Do you have any plans to offer The Rain Barrel Effect via audio??? I just listened to episode 560 about speed reading, in which you also mention auditory learning and audio books. Thank you for sharing your tips. AND for mentioning audio learning. I started consuming audio books when I had debilitating brain fog from chronic biotoxin exposure and chronic stress. And I hear so many people with chronic illness say they have trouble concentrating and retaining healing information via text. Now that I'm way better, I STILL love audio books! I must be an auditory learner. Plus it's so convenient to listen to books via audio while walking, driving or doing household chores. Thank you for so many informative podcasts, and for empowering people to empower people! An audio version of your book would be an amazing addition. : ) Jimmy: Hi Dr Cabral, thank you for everything you do. After getting tested, I have discovered that I have very high cortisol levels which is leading to anxiety. After doing some research and also experience in the fitness industry I came to the conclusion that it was best to stop weight training and exercising until I get my Cortisol levels back in a normal range. Do you think this was the right move or do you think I can still train? If not, when can I start training again in your opinion? Joanna: Hi Dr Cabral I would love to know more about diabetes. My dad has type 2 and gets tired often what causes people with diabetes to be tired? His blood sugars do fluctuate sometimes they are good other times they are a little high. His diet isnt too bad no sweets or sugars, he gets out and walks. Could you please refer me to any other podcasts you have and if you can just explain briefly what causes the fluctuations in blood suagrs and why they can get tired and even urinate more frequently especially at night?

Although I would always lean towards the advice of a coach who works with real clients every day, I do believe we shouldn’t ignore valid research...

There's been a lot of debate lately over whether you should be vegan, predominantly plant-based, paleo, carnivore, or some other diet variation...

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… Let’s get started!    Bec: Hi Dr Cabral,Firstly I just want to say thank you for absolutely everything that you do to help others. You are amazing and I love your positive and high vibe approach to health and nutrition! My question is… I’ve already done the CBO and am about to repeat it in order to fully remove the candida and bacteria. I tried the heal and seal for 2 months but unfortunately was getting a histamine reaction and so had to stop. Is there another product I can take to help seal up the gut wall? I’m taking 5g of l glutamine and am already on extra zinc. I was hoping there might be another product I could use that would have all the necessary ingredients rather than trying to source them all separately. Thank you so much Bec: Hi again Dr C, Just have another question. As I mentioned I’m going to do the CBO again shortly (doing parasite cleanse first). I’m very underweight and know from my OATS test (I did the big 5 tests) that I have high oxalates. I also seem to react to lectins and high FODMAP foods- so a very leaky gut all round! I’m worried that by following the sensitive gut diet strictly for 3 weeks, then it is likely I will lose even more weight. I tried upping my starchy carbs last time but unfortunately that caused a lot more bloating. Do you have any advice? Thank you so much Gina: Hi Dr. Cabral, I am extremely grateful for all of the knowledge you share and you have given me the tools to ensure that my family lives much healthier lives. I know that you have spoken about Lyme before and won't have time to explain all of it in a podcast, but I am desperate for help. I would love to have some kind of protocol to follow for not only getting rid of any co-infections, but truly healing from the aftermath. You said that healing the aftermath can be done in as little as a few months time, and this information would be invaluable to me as I am barely functioning and react to most foods and supplements. I believe I have already gotten rid of any co-infections since viruses, bacteria, and pathogens don't show up on my GI Effects stool test. I was also exposed to mold and am wondering which order to detox in. Mold test was pretty low (ochratoxin A 18.09 ng/g creatinine / Myocophenolic Acid 7.59 / Citrinin “The Dr. Cabral Daily Protocol” (This is what Dr. Cabral does every day!) - - - > Dr. Cabral Detox  (The fastest way to get well, lose weight, and feel great!) - - - > Daily Nutritional Support Shake  (#1 “All-in-One recommendation in my practice) - - - > Daily Fruit & Vegetables Blend  (22 organic fruit & vegetables “greens powder”) - - - > CBD Oil  (Full-spectrum, 3rd part-tested & organically grown) - - - > Candida/Bacterial Overgrowth, Leaky Gut, Parasite & Speciality Supplement Packages - - - > See All Supplements: https://equilibriumnutrition.com/collections/supplements  - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular At-Home Lab Tests: > Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (Test for mineral imbalances & heavy metal toxicity) - - - > Organic Acids Test (Test for 75 biomarkers including yeast & bacterial gut overgrowth, as well as vitamin levels) - - - > Thyroid + Adrenal + Hormone Test  (Discover your complete thyroid, adrenal, hormone, vitamin D & insulin levels) - - - > Adrenal + Hormone Test (Run your adrenal & hormone levels) - - - > Food Sensitivity Test (Find out your hidden food sensitivities) - - - > Omega-3 Test (Discover your levels of inflammation related to your omega-6 to omega-3 levels) - - - > Stool Test (Use this test to uncover any bacterial, h.

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:  Nicolle: Hi Dr C, Thanks so much for all you do. You truly have changed my life! I’m looking to have a bit of a mystery solved. I’ve spent since April of this year healing my body, first with the 3 week detox followed by the CBO protocol as I tested positive for candida. During the last week of the CBO I found out I was pregnant! Wonderful news, but very surprising. I’ve been off contraception for 2 years managing my cycle naturally through tracking, very successfully. I have a relatively normal cycle give or take a day or 2. Now the mystery- my conception date happened on the last day of my period. Normally the a safe zone I would have thought? I know the CBO can throw out your cycle but can it throw your cycle out that much? Clearly all of my healing turned me into a fertility machine which I feel very grateful for but would love to know how. :D Thanks again for all you do!! Nicolle Emma: Hey there Dr Cabral, First of all, let me just say that I am extremely grateful for your podcasts and everything you do. The gift of health knowledge that you have given to all of us is priceless for not only ourselves, but our children and loved ones. A few questions: 1) What do you think of the product Advanced TRS (toxin removal system) to remove heavy metals and of zeolites in general? TRS is a nanoparticle zeolite that crosses the BBB. Any safety concerns for adults and children? I have read some regarding aluminum content and I believe that since metals are estrogenic, using the full dose for 6 months caused me to have estrogen dominance. I took a heavy metals test after that and there was nothing concerning reported. Do I even need zeolites anymore in this case? I was using them to help heal my many chronic illnesses and with biofilms. Since I react to egg (I saw that Florafilm has an ingredient derived from egg), I wasn’t sure if I would be able to tolerate that. 2) My kids LOVE your new bars. Thank you SO MUCH for not putting stevia in them! I react severely to stevia which makes many “health products” unavailable to me. Would you consider making more stevia-free products such as the daily shake? I would also love to see some stevia free electrolyte powder! Thank you for everything that you do. Joanna: Hi Dr Cabral I have a question regarding breast health.This year so far iv done a 21 day detox the cbo, then after i went and did a 9 day panchakarma detox, since then my hormones went a little out of balance and lost my period for 1 month and is since always a bit late but starting to regulate. However my question is these changes my body is going through with these protocols has shifted my hormones, i did test for high testosterone high eostrogen and low prog earlier in the year, but my recent breast ultrasound show fibroadenomas and cyst.What is your advice for breast health and how to prevent breast cancer? What causes fibroadenomas Plus when rebounding is it best to wear a bra or not? Thankyou so much regards joanna Kelly: Hi Dr. Cabral, thank you for all the knowledge you provide. I see that there is only 4g of L- Glutamine in the Healthy Gut Support. Can I ask why you decided on 4g when the majority of studies that concluded a positive result from its supplementation were using above 25g on average? Lauren: Hi, recently found out i'm sensitive to salicylates and I know I have many other auto immune conditions. How do you heal your self with healthy nutritional foods, plant based supplements and herbs if you cant tolerate them. IGE is 780 and high Eosinophils. I was having your shake everyday but I cant even have this.... currently tying to treat via therapy. being allergic to healthy food!

One of my favorite topics to discuss is Intermittent Fasting... The reason is that very few things have the power behind them to change (for the better) your health, body, and anti-aging goals... However, like anything in life, when something has the power to transform your health & body there are often consequences if taken too far... On today's #CabralConcept 1398 I want to talk about those downsides and go over the 5 intermittent fasting myths that are hurting your health - Enjoy the show! - - -   Show Notes & Resources: http://StephenCabral.com/1398 - - - Dr. Cabral's New Book, The Rain Barrel Effect https://amzn.to/2H0W7Ge - - - Join the Community & Get Your Questions Answered: http://CabralSupportGroup.com - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular Supplements: > “The Dr. Cabral Daily Protocol” (This is what Dr. Cabral does every day!) - - - > Dr. Cabral Detox  (The fastest way to get well, lose weight, and feel great!) - - - > Daily Nutritional Support Shake  (#1 “All-in-One recommendation in my practice) - - - > Daily Fruit & Vegetables Blend  (22 organic fruit & vegetables “greens powder”) - - - > CBD Oil  (Full-spectrum, 3rd part-tested & organically grown) - - - > Candida/Bacterial Overgrowth, Leaky Gut, Parasite & Speciality Supplement Packages - - - > See All Supplements: https://equilibriumnutrition.com/collections/supplements  - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular At-Home Lab Tests: > Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (Test for mineral imbalances & heavy metal toxicity) - - - > Organic Acids Test (Test for 75 biomarkers including yeast & bacterial gut overgrowth, as well as vitamin levels) - - - > Thyroid + Adrenal + Hormone Test  (Discover your complete thyroid, adrenal, hormone, vitamin D & insulin levels) - - - > Adrenal + Hormone Test (Run your adrenal & hormone levels) - - - > Food Sensitivity Test (Find out your hidden food sensitivities) - - - > Omega-3 Test (Discover your levels of inflammation related to your omega-6 to omega-3 levels) - - - > Stool Test (Use this test to uncover any bacterial, h.

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… Let’s get started!    Jacqueline: My 8 year old daughter is struggling with some mast cell issues. We’ve been to multiple Drs and can’t get a solid diagnosis. They diagnosed her with hyperpermeable skin and then another Dr diagnosed her with chronic idiopathic urticaria. Right now I have her on Zyrtec which has helped her to be able to eat more foods without getting itchy and also helped with her constipation. The weird symptom is if she spends a lot of time outside in the sun the next time she eats she will get itchy dry arms. It doesn’t last too long, I just put anti itch cream on and that seems to help. I’m trying to heal her but every functional test I’ve done on her, stool, OAT, and mold, have come up with issues, Bacterial overgrowth, Candida overgrowth, c diff, h pylori, blastocysts, mold toxicity, and food sensitivities. She is so sensitive to almost every supplement we’ve tried. How do I help her heal if she is so reactive? Also, how do I keep the faith that she will be better one day when we keep having set backs? Dar: Now I don't drink alcohol very often but when I do it's usually a special ocassion like a wedding or birthday party every couple of months where we probably tend to have 5 or more drinks in the night. I guess that's considered binge drinking. How had is it if it's only a few times a year. Rya: Hi there Dr. Cabral, Thank you for all that you do. After suffering for decades, I found your podcasts and have a new sense of hope.I am unfortunately, worse than ever after seeing an Functional Doctor and naturopath and I’m scared.I am a 34 year old woman... Long story short, I was on PPIs for 20 years (finally weaned this year!) 2 years ago I developed extreme vertigo, vestibular neuronitis, daily migraines and head pressure, ear itchiness, leakage, and fullness, Orthostatic hypotension, Histamine intolerance, and more. I figured out it was gluten and dairy giving me the symptoms and promptly gave them up. ALL symptoms vanished! 6 months later, the symptoms returned despite being off of gluten and dairy and I lost oral tolerance to new foods each month until I was down to only tolerating a few. I have had a GI Effects test, heavy metals, Viome, food intolerances, mold, etc. Everything comes back with very little clues and all of my doctors are at a loss. No parasites, no signs of leaky gut (confirmed by both an FMD & naturopath), no metal toxicity... some IgG intolerances (way smaller list than what I actually tolerate)... I do apparently have adrenal insufficiency and estrogen dominance, but I don’t tolerate any adrenal supplements and so far DIM / bioidentical progesterone isn’t helping.I live on a very humid & moldy island that I can’t leave for over a year, but my symptoms started WELL BEFORE we moved here and my mold test showed almost nothing. I also don’t tolerate glutathione! I only eat 100% clean, organic, non processed local food. I never “cheat” because even a tiny bit sends me into the symptom frenzy. I’ve been healing my gut and supporting my detox organs for over a year. I cook and freeze food immediately to lower histamine. DAO / anti histamine supplements don’t help much. The only exercise I tolerate now is light weights and yoga. I go to the sauna 5 days a week and meditate daily. I’m currently doing a modified version of the CBO protocol because I can’t tolerate many of the ingredients. I support my vagus nerve. Please help! I am 98 lbs and I have no idea what to do. I’ve turned from an ambitious, active, social person into a sickly, broke hermit and I fear I will never recover! I’ve spend countless time, money, and effort healing and my debilitating symptoms continue to worsen. FMDs etc just keep putting me on “standard protocols” that work for 99% of people, but I’m the 1% that needs something very customized. The worst part is that I still have NO IDEA what is causing all of these symptoms after I eat basically anything at all. All I know is that it’s connected to food and I get every single one of those (head centered) symptoms after eating. I actually don’t have GI symptoms except GERD.Side note: my younger sister developed celiacs around the same time and has very similar symptoms when consuming gluten. My mother also developed similar symptoms after going on a cruise and starting perimenopause. It must be partly epigenetics? Thank you SO MUCH!! Penelope: Hi Dr. Cabral! Thank you for all you do - I listen to your show every day and you have become my go-to for any health and lifestyle related questions. I have one of the first Apple watches created (the one without a direct cellular connecting, but has wifi and Bluetooth) and Ive become nervous about wearing it for fear that it is harming me in some way. Was hoping you could help me determine whether this fear holds weight or not. I would love to wear the watch for all the tracking benefits. Can you speak to the pros and cons of wearing these smart watch devices? Thank you so much and have a great day!

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:  Barbara: Dear Dr.Cabral, I have been diagnosed with osteoporosis at 26 after losing my period at the age of 14 or 15 due to an eating disorder. I broke my hip last year, and have been trying to get my period ever since, in hopes of gaining back some bone density. Is there any other way I can strength my bones if I don't get my menses back? I am on red clover extract and full spectrum cbd, for I heard it helps bone remodeling, but I am afraid it is not enough. Any advice? Jenny: Hi Dr. Cabral! I've got a question regarding my mom this time. She has been recently diagnosed with atherosclerosis (they think in part it is caused by some left breast radiation she had 20+ years ago as part of her breast cancer treatment plan). I did a search for this but can't find any past podcasts by you on this topic. Anyways, her doc wants to put her on a low dose statin. I've been reading about a plant based diet and how it can slow or possibly even reverse this diagnosis. I'd love to gather your thoughts on this topic and see how to guide her to learn the root cause of this....perhaps it is the radiation! Her cholesterol levels are "within range" but apparently they aren't all that great for a woman her age (62). Thanks in advance for everything and I look forward to hearing you discuss this dis-ease! Anthony: What are your thoughts on Blair Upper Cervical practice? I've read that people whose atlas (C1) is shifted, their nervous sysem is compromised because their brain stem and vital arteries are impaired. Once their atlas is in adjustment, rapid health recoveries can happen. I saw Dr Thomas Forest for 3D cone beam scans and took many measurements and tests recently. Some very fascinating stories here! I was dubious until I heard the stories and met other individuals who've experienced rapid shifts in health. Jan: Dear Dr. Cabral and Team, I will make it short: I like your approach, your podcast, you work! I have a question for you as expert in the field of ketogenic dieting and health issues since the doctors I am consulting have a very traditional approach. - I am male, was always lean, 40 years from Germany- I have gastritis for long time already most likely coming from bile flowing back into the stomach (Gastroscopies always showed little "red" stomach lining, rarely some erosions). Reason unkown. Was on PPIs for a long time. - I changed my diet to ketogenic which I am on now for 2 years. I stopped PPIs and also tried to add HCI (and sometimes ox bile) if i had a protein and fat rich meal since I sometimes feel sick if I ate too much fat and/or protein in one meal. Feel much better in regards to digestion now. The new gastroscopy shows no improvement eventually even a worsening of the problem. - the doctor now says: "stop eating high fat (-diet) with lots of salt / sodium / potassium etc" and switch back to low fat food and many small meals and use PPIs again (probably forever). Now I am very sad and lost: On the one hand I feel much better being in ketosis in regards to general health and feeling on the other hand my stomach problems does not seem to change or even gets worse. Any idea or advice would be appreciated! Best Regards Jan Tom: Hi, I am 19 years old and over the last 3 months I’ve been so busy and have found it hard to eat. I rarely feel hungry anymore and have lost about 15-20 pounds. I rarely have daily bowel movements anymore and appear very thin now. I used to love going to the gym and I hate it now. I would love to hear your suggestions/ opinion to rebalance and gain some weight back healthy. Thank you dr. Cabral.   Thank you for tuning into today's Cabral HouseCall and be sure to check back tomorrow where we answer more of our community’s questions!  - - - Show Notes & Resources: http://StephenCabral.com/1394 - - - Get Your Question Answered: http://StephenCabral.com/askcabral   - - - Dr. Cabral's New Book, The Rain Barrel Effect https://amzn.to/2H0W7Ge - - - Join the Community & Get Your Questions Answered: http://CabralSupportGroup.com - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular Supplements: > “The Dr. Cabral Daily Protocol” (This is what Dr. Cabral does every day!) - - - > Dr. Cabral Detox  (The fastest way to get well, lose weight, and feel great!) - - - > Daily Nutritional Support Shake  (#1 “All-in-One recommendation in my practice) - - - > Daily Fruit & Vegetables Blend  (22 organic fruit & vegetables “greens powder”) - - - > CBD Oil  (Full-spectrum, 3rd part-tested & organically grown) - - - > Candida/Bacterial Overgrowth, Leaky Gut, Parasite & Speciality Supplement Packages - - - > See All Supplements: https://equilibriumnutrition.com/collections/supplements  - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular At-Home Lab Tests: > Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (Test for mineral imbalances & heavy metal toxicity) - - - > Organic Acids Test (Test for 75 biomarkers including yeast & bacterial gut overgrowth, as well as vitamin levels) - - - > Thyroid + Adrenal + Hormone Test  (Discover your complete thyroid, adrenal, hormone, vitamin D & insulin levels) - - - > Adrenal + Hormone Test (Run your adrenal & hormone levels) - - - > Food Sensitivity Test (Find out your hidden food sensitivities) - - - > Omega-3 Test (Discover your levels of inflammation related to your omega-6 to omega-3 levels) - - - > Stool Test (Use this test to uncover any bacterial, h.

There has been a great debate over whether you should eat 3 meals and 2 snacks per day, or 2-3 meals only... Essentially we’re putting the “grazers” up against those that “intermittently fast” for a longer period each day...

Vitamin B12 has been one of the All-Stars for quite some time now in terms of natural health and healing... But did you know that many people are walking around with functional deficiencies of this vitamin even if they believe they are getting enough through a "healthy diet?"And to make matters worse, there are 4 types of B12 with really only 2 of those having clinical merit...

Living in a world where everyone does as instructed, swallows the same pills, and recites the same information can be challenging... Especially if you’re one of the few “outliers” that tends to question social norms, and some of the things your teachers, doctors, or the media preach to you...

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… Let’s get started!    Tatyana: Hi Dr. Cabral, I am a 37 years old female and use to be very athletic (doing bootcamp almost daily). I recently had to quit because I noticed a crunching noise when I would walk up the stairs. I do have some knee pain as well. Xrays showed nothing but I was told I may have caused a mild case of arthritis due to the intense work outs. I am devastated! I am too young to have arthritis, I am now taking up yoga. Can I get rid of arthritis? Is yoga okay? Any recommendations to get rid of the pain? I do not want to start taking medications. Help! Thank you DB: Once a year we try to go for a vacation as a family to places like Mexico, Las vegas, etc, and I feel like that could be money better spent elsewhere as I feel like those trips take a toll on our health after all the terrible eating and drinking. My question is can you recommend a vacation spot where you can have fun and be healthy ? I looked up some health retreats and they were much too expensive. Thanks. Appreciate all you do. Chris: Hi dr Cabral, I was wondering your thoughts on monolaurin as a microbial and antiviral solution? I have Klebsiella, HPV and Candida Albican and would like to know if that is a good recommendation? If so, at what dosage, length of protocol and any particular brand? Thank you for all of your good work, you are appreciated more than you’ll ever know. Adrianne: Dr. Cabral, I have a mystery that google can't seem to answer. When I cry, it causes me to suffer for 24-48 hours. This has always been the case since I was a young child. The symptoms are as follows: Immediate symptoms: *Puffy swollen eyelids that appear to be filled with liquid and sagging over my eyes *The bags under my eyes also completely fill up with liquid *my sinuses swell, and I get the sniffles Delayed and long-lasting symptoms: *Headache in the bones of my face and the sides of my head *Tension in my neck and shoulders *Severe brain fog, can hardly drive or think straight *My eyes become sensitive to sunlight and screens *Even after my sinuses clear up, the eye-lids and bags under my eyes are still bulging *The next day feels like a hangover but without the alcohol, and it lasts ALL day. Even after I let go, forgive, and make peace with what triggered the crying, my spirit recovers but my body does not. The crying basically disfigures my face and I don't know how to get the fluid out. I don't know how to make the pain in my head stop.Some remedies I use with limited success are: Hot Shower Natural Sinus Buster nasal spray tea bags on my eyes Coffee compress on my face Cold packs on my face Jumping Jacks I have to do all these things in order to clean myself up enough to got to work. When I get there everyone asks what happened to your face? It's so embarrassing and I would like to be able to enjoy a good cleansing cry without the repercussions. Do you have some ideas as to what could cause such a longlasting reaction to crying? Thank you for the dedication you have to educating regular people like myself. Annette: Hi Dr. Cabral! kudos for all of your great work and wonderful information you share with your audience every single day. I have done the hair tissue mineral analysis and OAT tests and am on my way to getting better, thank you for that! My question today is more of a petition and see if you would kindly dedicate an episode to iridology. During my first visit to a naturopathic doctor, he read my iris and I was in shock as to how much information he had access to from my past and family conditions I hadn't even told him about, just by looking at my eyes! Ever since that first visit I have followed his indications and have noticed my green eyes turn even greener (I am a vegan and eat a lot of greens as well as drink liquid chlorophyll on his advice), he even says that if I keep doing his indications I'll live to 109, lol. Joke aside, doing a search I found episode 597 in which you briefly said you believe in it, but I am intrigued to hear an episode dedicated to this practice which I find fascinating, only if you agree. Thank you in advance for your consideration and many blessings to you and your team. Erin: Hi Dr. Cabral. I've read that bee propolis has anti fungal, antibacterial and antiflammatory properties and can be a great natural remedy for the common cold. Would love to hear your thoughts on bee propolis.

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:  Kelly: Hello Cabral Team,Hope all is well with you ! I'm Just wondering if you take on any mentors or accept students into to integrative learning programs who are not practitioners. Listening to your podcast are fuelling my fire/passion for proactive and preventative health. I love all the facets of being human, mind body and soul but also the interactions within every living thing on this earth. I am often overwhelmed on where to begin, being pulled into many directions because well everything is so diverse. In hopes to create a solid foundation, with someone whose ethos I can jive with and have come to respect in great awww. I thought maybe I could start here, put it out there and see if you offer any training or mentorships programs…. or maybe point out a good place to dig my first step into the ground and gain some traction to transform my inner passion into out outside world.Keep on being brilliant and humble! your open mindedness, depth of knowledge and emotional intelligence and that simple love of sharing with others is something special... One of a GREAT kind in my eyes... But ehhh that only my perspective.Shine On Kelly Genia: Hi Dr. Cabral. I am a level 1 student and enjoying your IHP Study Program immensely. You are so thorough. Love the details. Spending a lot of time on Module 4 because the whole hormone, female, nervous system - HORMONES - all speaks to me. I had adrenal fatigue and thank gd did the work to feel better via great nutrition and pacing myself with a yoga practice - kundalini that gave me a calm ritual to practice while I was gaining my strength back. I have so much to share but fast forward... in 2017 I went forty obgyn pap smear and found a cyst on left ovary.... treatments, surgery and I'm BRCA 1. Very onto of my game and doing the work. Thank gd over and over again i'm feeling great and moving on... teach yoga, healing and now have more info to share and teach. I want to do the detox and tests. I am writing here because I need more specific guidance. I don't think your IHP team on FB are comfortable to answer my questions. Waiting for support to work with. Should I do the Thyroid Adrenal Hormone test and 21 day detox? I eat pretty clean and juice and smoothie daily. Love your protocols. I do need more guidance, though to keep clean and toxic free and maintain my health. Thank you so much. I love being your student. Forever grateful to you, your vision and team of shining lights. xo Darrel: Hey Dr Cabral. I watched the docu film "The Game Changers" recently and it espoused the virtues of a plant based vegan diet over a meat based one. I know you went over most of this several times on your podcast and I'm most grateful for that. However, I don't know if there was an agenda but they were pretty convincing in their arguments that a vegan lifestyle has no drawbacks in strength, endurance and actually boosts sexual performance (erections) & testosterone levels. Can you say if all this is true and if it's recommended for a vata body type to go vegan plant based? Is it true the Meat industry paid athletes, film industry and doctors to advertize their products and tried to present their own dubious research that meat is best and plant based diet is weaker? As always keep up great work. Christian: Good evening Doctor Cabral. "The Game Chanhers" documentary just debuted on Netflix and it refuted a lot of myths I believed. But you're my go-to source to confirm these things. Growing up we heard soy increases estrogen levels in men but they claim soy merely has phytoestrogens, compounds that look like estrogens but can actually have the opposite effect, blocking some of our bodies' estrogen receptors and preventing real dietary sources of estrogen from taking hold. They went on saying the foods that contain estrogen are really chicken, eggs, dairy which can have a significant impact on our hormone level. Is there any truth to all this or is there some very convincing agenda? For example could I do soy protein shakes now without worrying about testosterone? Sorry for long question. Thanks for everything, great show! Malinda: I just had my second baby, she’s 7 months now and I’m 37 years old. I noticed in the past month my skin has gotten very dry and scaly. I was anemic while I was pregnant and took iron supplements, which I currently am taking now. Also my thyroid was just shy of the lowest normal range, which my midwife said wasn’t low enough to be a concern. I take Vit C, Zinc, Calm magnesium, liquid Folvic minerals, chlorella and algae DHA . My iron supplement (NaturesPlus Hema-Plex, Sustained Release - 85 mg Elemental Iron, 30 Vegetarian Tablets) has many other vitamins and minerals as well as several B- Vitamins. Would one of your B-Complex supplements help my dry skin?I adding the DHA and extra flax and chia seeds in my diet, still dry skin. I added liquid Iodine that helped a little but still dry. My question is which of your supplements can I get right now that would help support dry skin for someone who’s body is stressed out from the demands of nursing 24/7 and interrupted sleep? Also, would a LAB test be recommend, which one would be the best as doing all of them is a bit too much for my wallet? Are you still running a lab sale? PS. I’m a regular podcast listener and if its in your scope of knowledge it would be great to include any variations to your answers and topics discussed for Pregnant and Breastfeeding mamas since our bodies and hormones are different then non pregnant women and I'll be breastfeeding for the next year and a half, that's a lot of podcast!   Thank you for tuning into today's Cabral HouseCall and be sure to check back tomorrow where we answer more of our community’s questions!  - - - Show Notes & Resources: http://StephenCabral.com/1387 - - - Get Your Question Answered: http://StephenCabral.com/askcabral   - - - Dr. Cabral's New Book, The Rain Barrel Effect https://amzn.to/2H0W7Ge - - - Join the Community & Get Your Questions Answered: http://CabralSupportGroup.com - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular Supplements: > “The Dr. Cabral Daily Protocol” (This is what Dr. Cabral does every day!) - - - > Dr. Cabral Detox  (The fastest way to get well, lose weight, and feel great!) - - - > Daily Nutritional Support Shake  (#1 “All-in-One recommendation in my practice) - - - > Daily Fruit & Vegetables Blend  (22 organic fruit & vegetables “greens powder”) - - - > CBD Oil  (Full-spectrum, 3rd part-tested & organically grown) - - - > Candida/Bacterial Overgrowth, Leaky Gut, Parasite & Speciality Supplement Packages - - - > See All Supplements: https://equilibriumnutrition.com/collections/supplements  - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular At-Home Lab Tests: > Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (Test for mineral imbalances & heavy metal toxicity) - - - > Organic Acids Test (Test for 75 biomarkers including yeast & bacterial gut overgrowth, as well as vitamin levels) - - - > Thyroid + Adrenal + Hormone Test  (Discover your complete thyroid, adrenal, hormone, vitamin D & insulin levels) - - - > Adrenal + Hormone Test (Run your adrenal & hormone levels) - - - > Food Sensitivity Test (Find out your hidden food sensitivities) - - - > Omega-3 Test (Discover your levels of inflammation related to your omega-6 to omega-3 levels) - - - > Stool Test (Use this test to uncover any bacterial, h.

It's hard to believe, but the Holidays are already here! And with this time of the year typically comes more parties, social events, missed workouts, and sometimes poor food choices...

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… Let’s get started!    Cindy: I’m hoping to begin easing into a 24-hour fast/ one day reset diet once or twice a month. I’ve been doing the 12-hour overnight fasting for a couple weeks now and feeling calmer, but I’m hoping to add in extra autophagy benefit from an at least monthly 24 hour fast/one day reset. I’m a nursing mom so can’t do the quarterly detox yet. I’m wondering if Dr. Cabral has recommendations on the timing of the 24-hour fast as it relates to a woman’s fertility cycle? No artificial hormones here, and my cycles are pretty regular with a shorter luteal phase since I’m still returning to full fertility after my last pregnancy.I think I remember Dr. Cabral saying that progesterone is a precursor to cortisol, which I think I have chronically high levels of (working on it!). But I’ve also seen research showing that fasting can interrupt the hormones that tip off follicle stimulation preceding ovulation, so the estrogen-dominant part of the cycle might not be best either. I’ve ordered the OAT and HTMA and will complete those this week probably.Any help would be appreciated. Sonja: Hi Dr. Cabral,First of all I'd like to thank you for being a great teacher, for founding the IHP Institute, and sharing your knowledge! I have come very far health wise, I'm very grateful for my health, but I'm stuck with one issue, being fibrocystic breasts.I'll list the labs and protocols I've done, to give an overview what I've tried yet. I ran the big 5 labs in November 2018, completed CBO protocol, gut rebuilding protocol, and parasite protocol (right now doing the advanced parasite protocol). Have done 21 day detox, 2x 7 day detox and 14 day detox in 2019. Mostly dairy and gluten free (right now following the sensitive gut guide), have worked on stress reduction, and feeling great stress wise. Weaned off AED and progesterone cream, and my current supplement regimen is: CBD, DNS, DFVB, vitamin C, B- Complex, Omega 3, Magnesium, collagen, probiotics, vitamin D, astaxanthin, estrogen balance and adrenal energy. Will soon wean down the adrenal energy, since cortisol levels were nearly perfect, when I ran a TAH in August. Thyroid function was great, progesterone was perfect, however estrogen was high. I have used DIM, evening primrose oil, Chasteberry, and vitamin E for hormone balance before, over an extended period of time, but weaned the supplements down about 6-10 months ago.When I started the estrogen balance again, I was quite sure the FB would subside as well, but it got worse. Fibrocystic and painful, almost immediately after ovulation, and during the entire luteal phase. I wondered, if molecular iodine could be the answer to this issue. However discussing in IHP, I got the recommendation to rather try a systemic enzyme, serrapeptase or nattokinase. We saw there's also research on it, but didn't find much regarding dosage. Have you tried any of these for this specific issue, and would you have some insight regarding timespan and dosage? Or would your recommendation be entirely different? Thank you so much! Nikki: Hi my name is Nikki and I have a 2 year old daughter who we are looking to get her started on CBD oil. I noticed that your site was sold out, I was wondering if it would be coming back or if it is still the situation that Dr. Cabral can not sell it at this time. I was also wondering if you provide proper dosing for CBD oil in kids. I would be interested in setting up a consult with Dr. Cabral to see my two year old, if that is possible. She is a child who is diagnosed with syndrome, she has been on a ventilator for the last year. She also has gut motility issues, seizures (which are controlled with meds) and low tone. Any help I can get would be so much appreciated.Thank You in advance, Nikki Michael: Hi Dr. Cabral,Thank you for all that you do. I finally found my North Star with health once I discovered the rain barrel effect.I’m 30 years old. I’ve been on L2 foundational protocol for a while. I’ve never done any FM lab tests but definitely suspect gut issues as I’ve dealt with constipation/IBS my entire life and grew up on bagel bites and fruit roll ups.Question: on my bloodwork I had elevated bilirubin. Doctor calls it Gilbert’s syndrome. Sometimes the whites of my eyes can be a bit yellow. I don’t want to be like Gilbert. Please help.Second question: I have a mild case of tinnitus. I used to play in bands a lot when I was younger and probably damaged my hearing pretty badly. I feel like I always want to pop my ears. Every time I make the yawning gesture I can hear the popping in my ears. I feel like I’m experiencing some hearing loss as well. Almost feels like inflammation in my sinuses or ear canals.I’m going to either test with the OAT/HTMA or just jump right into the cbo protocol.Any advice is much appreciated! Judy: Do you offer or plan to offer a C-reactive protein (CRP) with coaching? My medical provider doesn’t offer it.   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! - - - Show Notes & Resources:  http://StephenCabral.com/1381 - - - Dr. Cabral's New Book, The Rain Barrel Effect https://amzn.to/2H0W7Ge - - - Join the Community & Get Your Questions Answered: http://CabralSupportGroup.com - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular Supplements: > “The Dr. Cabral Daily Protocol” (This is what Dr. Cabral does every day!) - - - > Dr. Cabral Detox  (The fastest way to get well, lose weight, and feel great!) - - - > Daily Nutritional Support Shake  (#1 “All-in-One recommendation in my practice) - - - > Daily Fruit & Vegetables Blend  (22 organic fruit & vegetables “greens powder”) - - - > CBD Oil  (Full-spectrum, 3rd part-tested & organically grown) - - - > Candida/Bacterial Overgrowth, Leaky Gut, Parasite & Speciality Supplement Packages - - - > See All Supplements: https://equilibriumnutrition.com/collections/supplements  - - -   Dr. Cabral’s Most Popular At-Home Lab Tests: > Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (Test for mineral imbalances & heavy metal toxicity) - - - > Organic Acids Test (Test for 75 biomarkers including yeast & bacterial gut overgrowth, as well as vitamin levels) - - - > Thyroid + Adrenal + Hormone Test  (Discover your complete thyroid, adrenal, hormone, vitamin D & insulin levels) - - - > Adrenal + Hormone Test (Run your adrenal & hormone levels) - - - > Food Sensitivity Test (Find out your hidden food sensitivities) - - - > Omega-3 Test (Discover your levels of inflammation related to your omega-6 to omega-3 levels) - - - > Stool Test (Use this test to uncover any bacterial, h.

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:  Dar: Used to have a ton of serious allergies as a kid outgrew them all almost except being allergic to salmon and tilapia. Also if I have too much dairy or wheat/gluten I get congested but I try to limit them these days.Do you know why you would be allergic to one type of fish but not another? I can have all the spicy tuna rolls I want and I fell good. It has always seemed odd to me if I ever have salmon my eyes start to swell a little and my throat is itchy and possibly swells a little as well. Thanks for all your advice appreciate all of it! Stay blessed. D: What has been your longest dry and/or wet fast?I personally have tried two day juice and water fasts and felt great after, however I tried a 36 hour dry fast once and three days later suffered from bells palsy luckily was able to recover 100 percent pretty quickly thankfully. Some people have permanent issues. After that experience I tell everyone I can to never dry fast, I got caught up into the hype after the juice and water fasts something that is easy to do in this say and age after watching a youtube video or reading a blog about how great something is for someone else. Erin: I have read that you should take supplemental NAC away from meals because the cysteine competes with other proteins for uptake and is thus not as well absorbed when taken with food. However, taking NAC without food causes acid reflux for me. I typically do not get acid reflux otherwise. Is there anything specific about NAC that would cause acid reflux? Is it true that NAC should be taken away from foods for best effect? Laura: Hi, I have hashimotos, chronic ebv, anemia, allergies, dairy, egg and gluten intolerances, etc. I’ve been getting acupuncture lately and they keep saying I have a liver deficiency. I want to do your liver cleanse. Is that the same thing as the 7 day detox? I also listen and love the podcast. Thanks! Laura Joanna: Hi Dr Cabral I wake up nearly night about 4am with sneezing and running nose/sinues not sure why this is. I dont go to sleep with a runny nose.I do have high histamines but havent had any high histamine foods recently. The oat test did show high oxalates and salicylates not sure if this is contributing? Any thoughts? My oat also did not show any mold markers but i have had mold where i live.

As always, I will present to you the unbiased facts and share the good, the bad, and ugly of the diet industry...

I came across some research just about 2 years ago that simplified a lot of how we view aging & dis-ease... It very succinctly went through a 25-point checklist on what you need to be looking at and adding in or removing from your healthy lifestyle... And, this program actually has clinical research data behind it to prove the results of reversing dis-eases like Alzheimer's and other health-related dis-eases...

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… Let’s get started!    Carolyn: I have two questions. First, what test do you suggest to evaluate cell function (at the cellular level)? And secondly, what protocol do you suggest for an otherwise healthy 23 year old male bitten by the lone star tick and now ‘allergic’ to all hooved animal products due to alpha galactose reaction. Thank you very much for your dedication to everyone’s wellness. We listeners are all grateful. Gabe: Hi Dr. Cabral, for the past couple of weeks I’ve been having major midday stomaching cramping. I ran a hair tissue test and found out I was deficient in pepsin and Enterokinase. I was wondering if you think that could be the cause of my discomfort and if you had any suggestions to balance the issue. Jennifer: Hi, eating disorder for 15 years, bulimia specifically, working on recovery last couple years. Question is regarding GERD because of the stomach acid from throwing up. I have to take medicine everyday to control it, I’m concerned about it messing up my ability to absorb vitamins/minerals. I’ve tried not taking it for a couple days, and it’s too painful. Thoughts? Tim: How long do digestive enzymes last? The bottle says to take them 15 minutes before, but what if a meal lasts longer than the duration of its effects in the stomach? Should I take 1 mid-meal as well? Kim: I started following Dr. Cabrals protocol in late summer. I am not one to mind having a fruit smoothie for breakfast w/ frozen fruits and vegetable. However, now /w the changing of the seasons; my body just does not want a cold smoothie for breakfast! It craves hot things like oatmeal, rice porridge, squashes, potatoes, etc. Do you have any options for breakfast or how to make the DNS into something more geared towards the changing of the seasons? Right now, I am having to just mix mine in a shaker bottle and sip it throughout the day or down it as a mid afternoon snack. Melissa: Hi Dr Cabral, I am about to start your CBO protocol to work on my SIBO. My specialist has tested me on the cause of my SIBO and as a result I have discovered I have gastroparesis and low gastrin levels. My concern is after I complete the protocol my SIBO could come back! I was unable to get any support from my specialist about what to do to remain SIBO free. They have only suggested to take a drug (for life) to pump my stomach faster and I was told 'there is nothing you can do for gastrin'. I have discovered your treatments and advice and am hopeful you would have some natural advice to help stay SIBO free. Thank you advance for any assistance you can give! Melissa Marie: Hi Doc! I have some specific questions regarding fasted weight training. On weekends I have gotten into the habit of training in the morning and am quite enjoying fasted workouts. My goals are fat loss esp around the midsection (would not classify myself as generally overweight however) and muscle gain in the lower body (glutes, legs). My fasted weekend training consists of weightlifting for the lower body followed by 20 min of light cardio. I am not hungry during these workouts but would like your feedback on whether I am sabotaging my results this way. Should I eat before training? Should I have a quick snack before the cardio (or not do the cardio at all that day?) Or is it fine to just eat after?

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: Hey Dr Cabral Thank you so much for all the work you do to educate us on wellness! I have learned so much from you. My son gets nose bleeds. Without bumping husband nose or any kind of trauma his nose will start bleeding. It usually stops after some pressure in around 5 minutes or so. There are times it will bleed a few times a day.There are times that it won’t bleed for a month and then it will bleed weekly.Is there anything I can do to support his body and little nose to heal and come back to balance. Thanks in advance. Aracely: i would like more information , about a ringing problem in my ears , they give me rx for inflammation , and I would like to know more in lose weight. Bev: I purchase your collagen. I was wondering if it has ALL types of collagen included in it? I was told that a good collagen has to have all types included. I am sure it probably does but I am just making sure Thanks Bev Gemma: Dear Dr Cabral, i have 2 interlinked questions. First, i have very high methane SIBO but hydrogen was in range. My baseline was 24 (too high to even start) but after 3hrs my test showed 68 whichi believe is pretty high. I have been taking atrantil but it hasnt done much so far. The test indicated that its likely LIBO rather than SIBO. Is there a difference in treatments for these conditions? I was thinking to do the Cabral detox for the LIBO but also the CBO program but I am confused in what order to do them. Also, with christmas coming it - it will be hard to stick to a 3 month program if its rigid - does the CBO program allow for an occasional alcoholic drink and a number of christmas dinners (various events leading up to christmas which all seem to involve food)? Troy: What are your thoughts on male ejaculation in relation to vitality energy and health? I've heard that retention of semen (seed) is important, but when I restrict myself I tend to beat myself up over it when it's obviously hard to be celibate.Would love to hear your thoughts! Please include this in IHP :) Heather: Hi Dr. Cabral,Thank you so much for the work you do. I recently completed your 21-day detox and feel great! I am continuing on my journey to health and excited about where it will take me. I am writing on behalf of a friend of mine who has struggled with alcoholism and now has cirrhosis of the liver. I’m not sure how far along it is. In addition to that, she now has a lump in her throat and the doctors are not sure what it is although they have suggested it may be cancer.Is there any guidance you can provide from a functional medicine perspective regarding treating cirrhosis of the liver? Is there any way to reverse the damage that is already done. Thank you!! Rani: Hi Dr. Steven Cabral, I have a quick question for you. I have tried the intestinal cleanse after completing the CBO protocol and got some abdominal pain on day two that lead to diaherra. Of course, I stopped the protocol. Then I tried it later this summer and got the abdominal pain within a day. My husband ended up doing the protocol and had no problem. Why do you think I have a reaction? And is there an alternative method to do an intestinal cleanse, since this one doesn't work for me? I know the coffee enemia only cleanses a small part of our colon. Is this maybe my only option for now?
