1093: Invisalign Bacteria, Vata Food, Pregnancy & Detox, Endometriosis Pain, Type 1 Diabetes, Smoothies vs. Soup, Growling Stomach, Vestibular Migraines (HouseCall)

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:  Shelly: Hello Dr. Cabral and Team, I am currently obsessed with the Dr. Cabral Podcast. I plan to purchase a copy of The Rain Barrel Effect soon to gain further insight. I am highly interested in functional foods which led me to Dr. Cabral's Instagram Account, which led me to the Podcast. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto Thyroiditis 18 years ago and decided to go gluten and dairy beginning 01/01/18. I am currently experiencing symptoms of possibly being over medicated and am going in for blood work tomorrow morning per my doctor's request, she responded to my emailed inquiry concerning my symptoms. My ultimate desire is to get off the Levothyroxine. I would love to run a full panel through Dr. Cabral and hope to be able to do so in the future, at this time I do not have the finances available to do so. Aside from the Hashimoto, I was curious to know if Dr. Cabral had toxicity concerns regarding Invisalign treatment used to straighten teeth rather than traditional braces. I am currently 2.5 months into the projects 14 month treatment. Best Regards, Shelley Kylie: Hi Dr Stephen Cabral, just want to start off by saying thank you so much for all the information you share every week, I have learnt so much & it has helped me so much in my healing journey. Just a few questions that I would appreciate so much for you to answer - 1. What is a great make the day before lunch that you would suggest for a predominantly vata constitute? I also live in a tropical warm climate in Queensland, Australia & it's currently about to come into summer here. 2. Do you eat red meat? If not, how do you make sure you get enough iron? 3. What are your thoughts on eating brown rice? 4. What are your thoughts on resistant starch? ie. Cooked & cooled rice or potatoes? Thank you so much for taking to the time to answer these questions for me :) Kelsey: In regards to being pregnant — are all of the detoxes off limit ? Or maybe a better question is what products would be recommended for pregnancy? Kristin: Do you have any advice or guidance on how to alleviate pain cause by endometriosis? I have had surgeries but the symptoms have come back and are painful again. Are there any alternative options to alleviate pain Danielle: Hi, I am very interested in the intuitive health practitioner course however I have been unable to find anywhere what organisation or university the course is recognised/registered under. I am concerned that I won't be able to safely practice in Australia unless it is recognised. Thank you for your help, Danielle Lauren: My friend's 5 year old son was diagnosed in September with diabetes type 1. He has to be given 4 injections of insulin daily. Which lab tests would you recommend he do? Susanne: Hi! Can I drink soup (made of bone broth and vegetables) every morning instead of a smoothie on the CBO protocol ? Carlos: Hello, I am done with the CBO protocol but still feel loud, persistent stomach growling throughout the day more so when I lay down. I assume it bowel movements but they’re so loud they keep me from sleeping at time. Any recommendations? Thank you Melissa: Hi i have been suffering with vestibular migraines & inflammation. I'm from Australia & am 38 yrs old. I eat really healthy and would love to get some tests done   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/1093 - - - 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.

1090: Case Study: Low Mood - Low Energy - Low Libido - Low Everything! (WW)

When looking at someone’s labs it’s important to not go overboard in any one direction... Don’t get me wrong, running Functional Medicine Lab Work beyond your annual blood work is crucial, but we can’t go by just the “numbers” alone... What’s equally important is the patient or client’s story of how they got here and what they’re suffering with now...

1089: Top 10 Reasons Why the Carnivore Diet Is Disastrous for Your Long-Term Health (TWT)

There’s no doubt that people are experiencing a lessening of digestive, inflammation, and pain based symptoms while on the “Carnivore Diet...” The problem is that health is NOT the absence of disease and every time we forget this it leads to long-term consequences... And these consequences are typically much worse than the original symptoms that were suppressed during the band-aid approach of removing an entire macronutrient (versus rebalancing the true underlying root causes of your dis-ease)... Today, on #CabralConcept 1089 I provide an unbiased overview of the top 10 reasons why the carnivore diet is disastrous for your long-term health and if you do use it how to do it in the safest way possible - Enjoy the show! - - -   Show Notes & Resources: http://StephenCabral.com/1089 - - - 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.

1087: Candida Supplement Substitutions, Reflex & Heartburn Labs, Hemp Alternative, Infertility Labs, Insomnia Guilt, Crohn's Sufferer (HouseCall)

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!   Alysia: I currently have candida overgrowth. I fit all of the symptoms for it and it seems to be getting worse. I have started a candida diet, meaning I have taken away most carbs other than some vegetables. I have been feeling much better but I fear that this is not enough to help with the overgrowth. I still feel many of the symptoms. I was thinking about getting the Candida Overgrowth supplement protocol. I did my research and tried to figure out what was in your supplements. I have an allergy to flowers (pretty anything with pollen and some root plants like Ginseng). I am a Naturopathic medical student and I cant even enjoy the pleasure of trying homeopathy or drinking most teas. I noticed that your supplements provided have ingredients that I know I would have an allergic reaction to. In that case, what would you recommend I do?  Nikki: Hello My partner suffers from severe reflux and heartburn, over the past 2-3 months he has also had flu like symptoms and has been advised that he may have problems with his thyroid. He has also figured out that he is Gluten intolerant. It is hard to know which tests he should take. It would be good to get an overview of everything. Can you advise what test would be best for him?  Lisa: I recently completed a IgG food sensitivity test. Pea and Rice were reactive foods. I am curious to know what this means for the continued use of my DNS. Thank you for your time!  Renee: I just listened to episode 516, as i'm trying to the get to the bottom of my hormone problems. I am 34, secondary infertility (got pregnant easily, had c-section for breech, healthy birth, been trying for baby #2 for 6 years), since having my first baby i found out i have endometriosis & had some scar tissue (had 2 laparoscopy's, right tube removed but both ovaries OK and 1 tube in good standing), as well as hasimoto's (1.11 TSH, but T.P Antibodies of 22) for which i'm taking the lowest dose of Synthroid, I suffer from migraines- mostly hormonal migraines during ovulation and my period, and I often get LUF's so now we're focusing on egg health even though most testing ive had done shows healthy follicles/eggs. All other hormones and thyroid results come back within functional ranges. I am working to eliminate toxins, and don't eat gluten, dairy, processed foods, sugar, caffeine, and eat mostly Paleo and organic. The podcast explains estrogen dominance- where Progesterone is low, cortisol is high, and dhea can be lowered in time. I don't really have the symptoms of estrogen dominance, and my progesterone always comes back fairly high (30-50 during peak +7 or day 21ish), estradiol normal, cortisol normal, and DHEA is really high usually around 290-300. So it's almost the opposite of estrogen dominance, so what would that be considered- what could be driving those kind of numbers?  I am working with a functional medicine doctor, working on gut health, hormone balancing, stress reduction (yoga, acupuncture, mindfulness), and getting acupuncture- and most symptoms I had before are gone but I still really struggle with the migraines and obviously i'm not pregnant even though i'm still trying. What could I be missing? Thanks in advance for your help!  Emerald: Hi Dr Cabral, I heard your podcast episode with Melisa Ambrosini about pre and post natal. I exclusively breast fed for the first 6 months and then introduced formula during the day when I went back to work. My post partum anxiety didn’t kick in until 3 months after, when my daughter was around 9 month old. I continued to breast feed until 21 months but felt an enormous amount of guilt around using formula. I’ve seen a psych and since August been having irregular sleep and insomnia. Some days are better than others. When I listened to the podcast yesterday I felt an enormous amount of guilt that I used formula from 6 months onwards. Do you think my insomnia is related to this past issue or could it be something else? Best, emerald  Luisa: Hi Dr Cabral, I'm from Melbourne, Australia and I want to ask about my fiance. He was diagnosed in 2009 with Crohns Disease from a biopsy, medication and steroids helped him for 5 years. Then started going down hill again flare ups, hospital visits with morphene, endone etc, started a bio-med called 'Humira' injections in the belly button area fortnightly. Still pain and flare ups on and off. In 2016 had surgery to remove 20cm small intestine and 15cm large and they found fistulas when they went in. Had ostomy bag for 9 months then it was reversed thankfully in July 2017. He had IGG testing and cut out gluten/dairy as dairy affected him badly. He's been seeing a naturopath and taking some zinc and magnesium etc but I feel he needs more. His gut isn't at optimal level and it frustrates me that no one has looked deeper into whats happening inside. Are you able to guide what might help him? He gets colds often, always coughing with a chesty cough, allergies (sneezing, red eyes, runny nose, blocked nose, fatigue, run down, pale, lethargic. The list goes on. I love him to bits and just want to help him feel his absolute best but didn't know what to do that wouldn't affect the Crohns disease or set anything off. (he is still on Humira injections fortnightly- immune suppressant) I would love some guidance on how to help his energy, life and gut bugs. I'm currently reading Rain Barrel Effect and LOVE it!

1086: Apples, Graduate Certifications, Seed Cycling Length, Firefighter Toxicity, Failed Meal, Medication Overload, Natural Shaving Cream (HouseCall)

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:  Meghan: Hi Dr. Cabral- I love listening to your podcasts while I work out, especially the recent ones on Ayurveda. They keep me motivated and excited to make healthy choices throughout my week. I recently enjoyed your podcast on the 7 foods you eat daily and can't live without. Your discussions on food have helped me fine tune my diet (like eating oats and berries more frequently!). In your podcast you mentioned that you'd like to hear if there was something your listeners eat on a regular basis and can't live without. I eat a granny smith apple almost everyday. I'm prone to constipation so it's really important that I get the right type and amount of fiber everyday. I don't know what it is about an apple but it truly does keep the doctor away for me! That along with plenty of water of course. I'm curious to know your thoughts on that since I haven't heard you talk much about the benefits of apples (I recently started listening within the last few months). Is it merely the fiber content or something else too? Or maybe I just found something that works well for my body!  Misty: Hello! I’ve been listening to Stephen Cabral’s podcasts and I applied in October to go to school for integrative health but I’m nervous that the school is so new that I may not get the education I need. I am a registered nurse with a background in Intensive Care and post recovery from surgical procedures. I ultimately want to own my own health “center” with nutrition classes (for profit & community volunteer education for the less affluent), include a “fast food” section for healthy dieters, exercise center (local teachers for yoga/weight lifting/etc), and a homeopathy shop with local vendor items and aromatherapy.  I am, as of now, going to Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH) for the Masters in Nutrition and Integrative Health. Do you or Stephen know of this school? It’s regionally accredited but I want to make sure I am getting what I pay for, it’s pretty expensive. They over post graduate certifications in aromatherapy, Chinese medicine, and yoga which I intend to obtain when I’m done. Please help! I need some advice. Sincerely, Misty  Andrea: Hello! quick question! I started the SEED CYCLING that Dr. Cabral mentioned and advised. I was wondering how long I could expect to do the cycling before seeing changes in my menstrual cycle...? I know it depends on the person and that there are too many variables to conclude as to when any one woman will see its effects- but I am a 26yr old female, 130lbs, very healthy other than having no menstrual period for 2yrs. I have done the cycling for one month thus far and will continue it indefinitely. Any answers would be helpful! I'm grateful for your all!!!! Thank you in advance, Andrea  Darrow: Hey. I am a firefighter working shifts day and night. I am reading your "A Man's Guide To Muscle and Strength". Great book. I am a vata pitta body type, more vata. Was wondering how I should go about training given my work schedule. Sometimes we have major calls that calls for hours of strenuous work in smoke filled environments. Or nights where we're out working. Should I still try to train on those days or count that as a strength day. I've friends I train with in the construction industry who are working hard everyday who have similar concerns. Keep up good work. Also what do you recommend if one has been briefly exposed to smoke inhalation. What immediate measures he can do to minimise any potential damage? Thank you.  Halle: Hi! Was just looking to see if there was a podcast from you guys about acid reflux and natural ways to diminish the symptoms. Thanks!  Tyffany: I'm on day 7 of the 21-day Detox and had a failed lunch. I am in the military and had only dining hall fare to choose from. Will picking up right where I left off be ok or do I need to do something special to start over?  Laura: Hi Dr. Cabral! I’m scheduled to have double jaw surgery (4-6 hours procedure) at the end of February 2019. I’ll have finished your CBO protocol by the end of January 2019 and will do your CBO Finisher Heal & Seal for one month before my surgery. I have some questions. 1. What would you recommend I do before my surgery in order to prepare I am ready? Any supplements I should be taking or natural remedies? I’ll be on your CBO Finisher but is there anything else I should incorporate?  2. For this surgery, I will be prescribed a lot of medication. I have to use an anti-nausea patch and Zofran (anti-nausea medication) before/during surgery. Afterwards, I know FOR SURE I will have to take antibiotics, nasal sprays (like Afrin, Simple Saline Spray, Decongestion Spray) and then possibly Oxycodone, Ibuprofen, Prescription Joint Medication, Mucinex, Tylenol, and Benadryl. As you can see a lot of medication! What do you recommend I do after surgery so that I can make sure my gut isn’t completely ruined after going through your whole CBO protocol? What supplements of yours do you recommend?  3. Any supplements/natural remedies you also recommend after surgery to help heal or to help with pain? I want to try and use as little medication as possible, but I just don’t know how bad I’m going to feel after.  Just so you know, I’ll have to be on an all liquid diet for 10 weeks after surgery! Thanks so much for all you do! Really appreciate it!  Darrel: Hey Dr. Cabral. I am of African descent and have to shave my face regularly. I do so using a depilatory shaving powder called SoftSheen-Carson Magic. Listening your podcasts and reading Rain Barrel Effect has me wondering whether there are any major toxic drawbacks from using it. Searches on EWG website proved futile. If it is negative can you suggest alternative options. I cannot use razors because they cause ingrown hairs. Thank you, keep up great work.

1083: The Main Factors That Affect Thyroid Malfunction (WW)

One of the top health issues we see in my Integrative Health Practice is sub-optimal thyroid function (typically low thyroid)... Much of the time this goes un-diagnosed, but people are walking around with the symptoms of a weakened thyroid that manifest themselves as: Low energy Low mood Low vitality Thinning hair/skin/eyebrows Weight gain Sluggishness Brain fog Poor circulation and much more... The good news is that all of these issues can be overcome and you can begin to heal your thyroid as long as you know the toxicities and deficiencies you may be dealing with...

1080: Amalgam Removal Process, Green/Yellowish Mucous, Bile Reflux, Staff Smoothies, Join the Community (HouseCall)

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!   Dayna: Hello, I am having my amalgam fillings removed in two weeks and was wondering if you have any advice on how to prepare my body for the procedure...thank you  Daniel: Hey, I am 25 and have been listening to your podcast ever since I heard you on Mind Pump and I am very intrigued by what you have to talk about. For the last few months I have had a really dry nose and it is tender to the touch. I usually wake up to hard boogers that are green/yellowish and I will usually have them throughout the day. I wanted to see what your thoughts were and if you had any remedies for this. I also have symptoms of brain fog, but sometimes my thoughts turn dark and it feels like I don't have control over them. This frightens me but I don't have good enough insurance to get it checked out and don't want to be put on medication if there are other alternatives. I did encounter a very serious concussion about a year ago ( I played football and lacrosse growing up so I have dealt with them before but this one was definitely the more serious of them, with the greatest symptoms) so I am not sure if this is playing a role in all of this as well. I look forward to hearing back from you! Thank you!  Makayla: Hello there! I have been suffering with bile reflux since March. I have a lengthy history and I'm pretty sure I know what got me into this mess, but I'm so unsure what to do to get me out of it. I'm in a sufferable amount of pain and discomfort daily. I'm unable to eat most foods, my GI doctors have done absolutely nothing to help me. They want to remove my gallbladder and said that even then there's a 50/50 chance my pain will resolve. So, I remove an organ and hope for the best with the odds of a coin flip? I need help. Insight. Anything! My stomach and esophagus are becoming severely damaged. And its a total MYSTERY to every doctor I've been to. Please help me.  Tinishia: Hello I just started listening to Stephens podcast and was wondering if you could help me find out which podcast he talks about why breakfast smoothies are important for your health. He stated in the 999 that his whole staff drinks smoothies every morning and I just wanted to learn the science behind it. Thank you in advance.  Tinishia  Riannan: How do I join your FB group so I can interact?  I’m only seeing how to follow but I thought I’ve heard a group mentioned on your podcasts. Thx!  Thank you for tuning into this weekend’s Cabral HouseCalls and be sure to check back tomorrow for our Mindset & Motivation Monday show to get your week started off right! - - - Specific Show Notes & Resources: http://StephenCabral.com/1080 - - - 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.

1079: Behcet Disease, Pitta-Vata Body, Safe Dinnerware, Yeast & UTIs, Protocol Lengths, CBO Approved Beverages, Keto/Carni Diets (HouseCall)

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:  Roshana: Lily is 21 years old college student. She has always been a healthy child and teenager until last spring an ulcer like breakouts in her mouth and genital area, which continued with sores in eye lids ( similar to a chalazion case). After seeing rheumatologist , dermatologists and running all conventional medical test they are suspecting an autoimmune system decease named " Behcet". They are treating her with Steroid based medications. But even that doesn't keep the the flare outs away. I would love her be seen by dr. Cabral.  Roshana  Brittani: Hi there,  Just listening to podcast number 922 at the moment and logged on to view the body type images. For the women, however, I've noticed that pitta-vata isn't pictured, there's one for the men though. I do know this is my type so was hoping for a visual :).  Not that I'm a pro in typing, but in terms of body shape and structure - would Julianne Hough be considered a pitta-vata?  Thanks for your thoughts on this!  Steve: Hello - I have been researching clean and safe dinnerware options lately as I would really like to make the switch to a cleaner option. I have found many endorsements for stainless steel (food grade 304 18/10 or 18/8) but have also found equal warnings regarding chromium & nickel leaching. Can you speak into whether stainless steel is a safe option or not? Thanks, Steve  Breanna: Hello! I had a quick question in regards to the Candida and bacterial overgrowth protocol. I know it helps with chronic yeast infections (yeast) but does it also help with chronic UTIs (E Coli)?  Rachelle: Hi, I started the heavy metal detox this past Saturday and I know it’s a six week protocol. I’m unsure if the products I purchased from equilibrium nutrition will last six weeks with the amount Dr. Cabral recommends I take. Should I purchase another set of supplements for the heavy metal detox? And also, some people take six months to detox heavy metals. Should I be doing this longer than six weeks? I want to ensure maximum benefit for my efforts. I just had my breast implants removed almost 8 weeks ago and I’m looking to completely cleanse my body as they really did a number to my hormones and health. Thank you!  Katie: Hi-  I just started my CBO Protocol Monday. Can I drink Herbal teas and coffee with almond milk?  Also can you send me a link to some CBO recipes? I am part of the detox facebook group but struggling to find some inspiration for yummy CBO approved recipes that arent just a pile of veggies:) I am so excited for this journey!!!! Thank you! -Katie  Anonymous:  Hi Doc! Thanks for your podcast and all you do, changing lives.  Do the world a favor and explain why the Keto diet and the carnivore diet are not suitable long term diets. I’ve had so many peolple debate with me on how great they feel and how it’s healed all their medical ailments that I’ve even started to doubt my own belief on what the base of all diets should be (mostly veggies and moderate protein/fat). I’m constantly doing research to find the best diet for my family and I keep seeing more anecdotes and stories from people have tremendous success with Keto/carni for all around health.  I think the world needs clarification on this and I know you are not bias towards any specific diet so your perception is greatly needed in the health community at the moment to clear things up for us normal folks who want the best for our people.  Could you explain in depth/scientifically why we should avoid these diets except for unique medical cases? Maybe this deserves its own 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!

1078: New Daily Protocols, You Are the Placebo, Testosterone & Pynogenol Research, ALP Lab (FR)

We have a big #FridayReview coming in with everything from book reviews, to research, to the debut of my brand new @equilibrium_nutrition Daily Foundational Protocols! Our book/product review of the week is one that is centered around the actual science of how powerful the mind can be in manipulating the results you get in your life... And in our "in the news" research piece I reveal how TRT hormone replacement has been falling over the past few years (for good reason). Plus, we have another study on a specific "superfood" that at 100-200mg daily helps with DVTs and blood clots...

1076: Safe Carbs: Starchy vs Non-Starchy Vegetables (WW)

With so much talk about carbohydrates lately it's almost unimaginable of me to be recommending them, but I'll do my best to share with you another side of the equation ; ) Today, I'd like to explain the different types of carbohydrates and which ones will have a greater effect on the blood sugar, calorie intake, serotonin production, cortisol dampening, and your weight loss/gain efforts... As you'll soon see, the carbs you should be eating will be more centered around your goals rather than some dogmatic style of diet adherence you must abide by...

1075: The 5 Vitamins Everyone Should Take? (TWT)

I was reading through some articles last week and came across an interesting one where both MDs and NDs teamed up to share the nutritional supplements they believed EVERYONE should be using... Surprisingly, these doctors all agreed on which ones most people should be using on a daily basis... Why did they so readily agree? As a Functional Medicine Doctor or Integrative Health Practitioner, you will read thousands of labs in your practice every year, which will highlight the most common deficiencies - This makes it easy to know what 9 out of 10 people are always short on...

1074: The Nocebo Effect: Are You a Victim? (MM)

Do you ever feel that you should be further along in your life or progress than you currently are right now? If so, you're not alone and there are a few proven factors that can stall people from reaching their potential and living their best life... One of those is the opposite of the Placebo Effect and actually neutralizes much of the goal setting and progress you are trying to make... The good news is that you can overcome this hurdle once you become fully aware of how it is sabotaging your goals and results...

1073: Acid Blockers, Holding Onto Fat, Epilepsy, Perioral Dermatitis, Ringworm, Miscarriages, New Zealand Shipping (HouseCall)

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!   Caris: Hi Dr Carbral, Firstly, thank you for so openly sharing your wealth of knowledge to all of us- I'm so grateful to be learning from you all the way from Australia.  My question is in relation to my Dad's health. He is 61 years of age and has suffered from reflux since he was in his 20's, and subsequently, has been on a the highest dose of Nexium (40 mg/day Esomeprazole) for 30+ years. For the past ~10 years he has also been having surgery every 6 months to remove between 10-20 gastric polyps at a time. His gastroenterologist has also said his stomach lining is chronically inflamed. I have been doing a lot of research on this and believe the polyps may be as a result of the Nexium suppressing his stomach acid for so many years. He has also had high cholesterol since his twenties (requiring long-term statins), has chronic back pain and recently, low iron.  His doctors have said that it is better to stay on the Nexium and deal with recurring gastric polyps, than to risk developing oesophageal cancer as a result of his reflux.  He eats a very healthy diet with lots of fruits and vegetables and rarely has junk foods, although he does drink socially a 1-2 times per week. I fear that his low stomach acid means he isn't absorbing enough nutrition from food, and I am greatly concerned for his health and the damage that chronic medication-use has caused. I am desperately seeking your advice of what direction we can take to improve his health - we will do anything!! Thank you so kindly in advance.  Caris  Lauren: Hi Dr. Cabral. Thank you for everything you do! I have listened to all podcasts back to episode 800.  I am 5'3 and 163 pounds. I have always struggled to get back down to where I think I should be at 135 in a balanced approach. About 5 years ago, I trained for a bodybuilding competition, and since then have felt like no matter what I do, I can't lose weight.  Last year, I worked with a local FM doctor, and was able to finally feel like I was making progress. The problem is he had me play around with intermittent fasting. At that point, I stayed at around 155, and felt like my health was finally in my control. Then I tried taking fasting to the next level. I fasted until lunchtime everyday for the past three months. I have listened to your thoughts on this, and stopped. But now what do I do? I bought your thyroid support and now only fast 12 hours daily (8pm-8am), and I do your daily protocol (greens and daily nutritional shake) but I still feel so stuck. I feel like my body just wants to hold on to all the fat. I keep telling myself it is not broken, It is doing what its natural response is to going without food. But how do I get out of this cycle? Logically I feel like I need to eat more often so my body knows it has food, but that goes against what I have been learning about space between meals.  Valeria: Hi dr.cabral!  So iv had epilepsy (complex partial) for 14 years now (if ur hearing this in 2019 it's 15 years) so since I was 7. After listening to a lot of ayervedic and balance dosha podcasts iv grown curious as to trying ayervedic medicine to rid my seizures for good without undergoing risky surgery which would impact 20% of my verbal memory. It'd be great for you to give me advice as to what I should do. Thanks  Paul: Hello, My name is Paul and I’m an 18 year old male. Lately I’ve struggled with acne, primarily Perioral Dermatitis, and took an antibiotic to cure it. It worked very well but now I’m worried and believe I have Leaky Gut. I’ve read and listened to many podcasts and hear bone broth is great for curing this. I also have had you and your team suggest an organic acids test and food sensitivity but I cannot afford those right now. Do you suggest I try bone broth and if so, how often should I consume it. Also, any other suggestions?  Thanks,  Paul   Ryan: Hi Dr. Cabral, I discovered you through listening to Ben Pak and MindPump and love your podcast as well. I have noticed two itchy bumps on two different spots on my scalp. I thought they were pimples at first but the just wouldn't go away. I went to see my doctor and he prescribed me an antifungal topical cream to put on and then a special shampoo. I found all they did was suppress the bumps and they would just move to a different spot on my scalp. My haircut barber said it might be from not washing my hats regularly and that it might be ringworm on my scalp. He said I need to ask for antifungal pills to kill the infections not just topical creams or shampoos. Can you please give me any recommendations that will help me fix this and not just give me temporary relief or suppressants? Are antifungal pills going to give me long term complications? Are more natural solutions that I've seen online like garlic, tumeric, coconut oil, or aloe vera just going to suppress or give temporary relief, not actually fix the issue? Thank you very much! - Ryan Lisa: I am 39 years old and have two children, but over the last 3 years, I've had two miscarriages at 10 weeks. I am currently doing the seed cycling and have seen good results so far. What tests do you suggest starting with in order to figure out what's happening? I can't afford all the tests at this point, so where should I start?  Jane: Hi there, I was just wanting to enquire as to how to get your Detox shipped to New Zealand!

1072: Colitis, IBS, SIBO, Calorie Deprived, Flatulence, Pizza & Donut Diet, Gassy Supplements, Gut Issues (HouseCall)

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: Not sure how to join your facebook page;I believe I have developed food sensitivity and IBS or colitis after taking antibiotics a couple of times a year for a variety of problems. I think this summer put me over the edge with 2 rounds of antibiotics, most recently Augmentin. My elimination has not been the same since. I also developed swelling of the lips after going vegan and think I can say it is from a peanut butter powder / peanuts I was using. I have never had these problems like this before-my rainbarrel is definitely full.I am not certain where to begin, but I know my digestive system is Way Way off. Was also diagnosed last year on colonoscopy with diverticula for the first time ever. I was quite surprised about that. I am 64 and have always watched my diet.Do I need to start with the gut rebuilding products? I have been listening to your podcasts. I need a little guidance on where to start here and what products to get. Thanks. Nancy Isaac: Hi I have IBS maybe SIBO and also some anxiety/nervous system type of issues I want to get tested for. Im in the health field and dont feel like I need a coach or someone to meet with on a regular basis. Im wondering if its a good option to just get a test for each of these things and then I saw they come with a 30 min coaching session. Would this provide me with supplement/diet recommendations based on the tests? Would this be a good route if I not wanting the coaching on a regular basis? Kristy: Hello, I was just wondering if you ship to New Zealand at all? Many thanks! Tijana: Hi Stephen Cabral's support team!I am 19 years old and I am suffering from hypothalamic amenorrhea. I have not had a regular period in around 3 years. I have maybe had 1-3 over the 3 years but for the past year I have not had a single one. I am aware that I am suppose to exercise less and eat more in order to get my period back as well as reduce stress (mental and physical). Which is very hard for me as I love going to the gym and pushing myself. I have not been able to lose any weight even though I am exercising lots and eating a relatively healthy lower calorie diet. I am at the heaviest I've ever been in my life weighing 145lbs and I am 5 foot 7. I also have extreme cellulite. I have a decent amount of muscle on me which makes me question why I have so much cellulite (never suffered from cellulite before). One last thing to mention is I am extremely constipated, I never ever have regular bowel movements, maybe 2 times a week if I am lucky. I have been following your team for a while now and just wondering what is the best way to go about my situation. Please help. I live in Canada and I am able to run any blood test for free. Am I able to send your team my blood test results?Thanks,Tijana Josh: Hi Stephen,I have recently discovered your Podcast on iTunes and find it really interesting and insightful, I love it. Your listener questions are great and have prompted my email. I’m hoping you can give me some advice, particularly in relation to my digestive gut health and cystic acne. Brief background about me; I’m a 26 year old male, who lives an active lifestyle – I play Rugby League and resistance train 5 trains a week. My diet is ‘clean’ and balanced. I work as an Architect and as a result, I’m sedentary most of the day - 7.30am until 6pm. Then, I will go the gym after work and rugby train 2x a week, after the gym. Onto my issues, trying to be brief, I appreciate your time is valuable; - I started getting cystic acne roughly around the age of 15 years old. - I went to my local General Practitioner at the time, who put me on a repeat course of antibiotics Lymecycline 408mg. At the time, the antibiotics worked periodically and provided some relief.- Now I believe this is part of my current problem… I still take these antibiotics (although, I have started a regime to slowly come off of them, as I describe below – I’m scared to come off of them in one hit, due to the amount of time I’ve been taking them). - Over the years, my cystic acne has been terrible, then good, then back to terrible. I have visited my GP on numerous occasions, who have either switched the antibiotics I have been taking or provided a topical treatment, as well as, the oral antibiotic. - Again, this has worked on and off for many years. But never actually completely stopped the cystic acne. - After many hours of research over the years, I’m now aware that the antibiotic’s I have been taking are more of a prevention than a cure; and have likely been making my general health worse! (I did broach this with my GP, however they dismissed it). - I battled with the above regime for years and years. Getting huge cystic acne spots, having a period of no acne, then the acne resurfacing. - For at least 6-8 years to present day, I have tried to exclude dairy and bread as practicable as possible; doing this seemingly had little or no effect, as the cystic acne hasn’t budged. Bringing us back to 2018; - Around March 2018, my friends and I booked a summer holiday, I found this as an opportunity to get in to great shape; I was in the best shape of my life (my physique has always been relatively good, but I have never pushed myself and tried to get low body fat). - From March to June, my diet was very ‘clean’ contained lots of vegetables and few carbohydrates. - During the same period, the supplements I were taking consisted of the following – Zinc, Magnesium, 2 tbsp’s of ACV per day, Calcium, Vitamin A, Vitamin D3, Burdock Root and Probiotics. - I found over that time period that my cystic acne flare ups, were very rare. Any spots I did get where minimal, I certainly wouldn’t call them cystic – more small white heads. - I felt great, I got into the best shape of my life and finally after 10+ years my acne was seemingly going. My confidence was at an all-time high and I was loving my life. - I put my reduction of cystic acne down to my diet, active lifestyle and supplementation routine. Note; I was still taking the prescribed antibiotics during this period. Late July to early October 2018; - During a rugby match in July I suffered a complete tear of my distal bicep tendon, requiring surgery. - I had surgery on the 6th August, going under general anaesthetic. - As a result of my surgery, my activity levels reduced dramatically – walking was the only form of activity, were I would walk up to 20,000 steps a day. - My diet was largely the same as the previous, however I started getting my meals made and buying them from a company. - The only differences between my diet and supplementation between pre-surgery and post-surgery were; - Stopped taking Probiotics - Stopped taking Burdock Root - Increased carbohydrates and reduction of vegetables, eaten with my lunch time meal - However, my cystic acne was back as worse as ever and has been present ever since. - I couldn’t put my finger on why my acne was back, so I started doing lots of research, listening to Podcast’s (how I found ATP LAB!). - I come across one Podcast that suggested acne, specifically cystic acne is caused by underlying Streptococcus - SIBO overgrowth, in the gut, which can be caused by the frequent use of antibiotics! - This rang true with me, I had severe tonsillitis as a child, which resulted in me having them removed. I understand tonsillitis / strep throat is caused by group A streptococcus, the same bacteria which the Podcast stated causes cystic acne. - Perhaps, I never fully treated / removed the by group A streptococcus bacteria as a child, which results in my cystic acne; my diet / supplement change post-surgery and the reduction in vegetables, increased carbohydrates and no probiotics allowed the overgrowth of this bacteria? - The overgrowth could also be attributed to the antibiotics, general anaesthetic used during the time of my surgery? - Whether the streptococcus theory is factual or not, I do believe that the bacteria in my gut, is very poor, particularly since surgery – but largely due to the 10+ years of taking antibiotics; which again, could cause my cystic acne. Present day from 10th October 2018; - Listening to your Podcast on acne and the streptococcus Podcast on acne, changed my mindset completely. As a result, I have changed my diet and supplementation routine. - I have tried my best to incorporate as many of the strep killing foods / vitamins and minerals into my diet as possible. By no coincidence, these strongly match the foods / vitamins and minerals, many experts suggest consuming to prevent cystic acne. - Present day diet from 10th October 2018, largely reflects that post-surgery. Lots of vegetables, typical day; Breakfast: 4 whole eggs, cooked with coconut oil. Lunch: 200g chicken breast Large servings of broccoli, cauliflower, red & white cabbage ‘Stir-fry’ of spinach, kale, onions, asparagus Mixed with turmeric, ginger, garlic granules. Dinner: 200 – 300g chicken breast Large servings of broccoli, cauliflower, red & white cabbage ‘Stir-fry’ of spinach, kale, onions, asparagus Mixed with turmeric, ginger, garlic granules 110g quinoa, bulgur wheat and wholegrain Hummus. Snack: Tin of tuna Half an avocado 100g pickled beetroot - Around 2,600 calories – 230 grams protein, 160 carbs and 110 fats. - Present day, daily supplementation from 10th October 2018; Calcium Magnesium plus Zinc - Solgar -Take two before bed -Take one at lunch Zinc Pilcolinate - Now Foods Zinc Picolinate 50mg-Take after tea Vitamin D - Carlson labs D3 5000mg -Take after tea Vitamin A - Now Foods, Vitamin A, 10,000 IU -Take after teaBurdock Root - Now Foods 430mg-Take two before bed-Take one at lunchDandelion Root - Now Foods 500mg-Take one before bed-Take one at lunchACV - 4 tbsps / day-Take two tbsps in morning-Take two tbsps before bedFibre - Now Foods Fiber-3-Take two tbsps with ACV on a morningFish oils - Now Foods Ultra Omega 3 Fish Oil-Take two with lunchProbiotics - Now Foods GR8-dophillous-Take two at soon as get to work, 2 hours post breakfast, don’t eat for 2 hours afterwards-Take one mid-afternoon, 2 hours post lunch, don’t eat for 2 hours afterwards Multi vitamin - Nature's Way, Alive! Max3 Daily-Take three with lunch-Garlic – Raw-Swallow two whole cloves (crushed), before bed- As you can see, my diet is very clean (quite boring) and many of the foods contribute to strong gut health? I still to avoid dairy and bread – maybe it doesn’t help with my acne and may help my gut health? - However, since starting the above regime, my flatulence and bloating has been overwhelming and without wanting to provide too much detail, it smells! But my stool is of a healthy consistency, due to my high fibre intake. But, I cannot understand why I have so much flatulence. My overall health is good. I rarely get any illness or any other issues, only cystic acne! - Side note; I’m more than happy to sit this one out and wait for the flatulence to stop / reduce, if it will. Continuing my present day regime. - As noted at the start, I have also began a regime to stop taking the antibiotics. I’m scared to come off of them in one hit, due to the amount of time I’ve been taking them. - Reduction regime; Take one acne tablet every four days then have a day off, for a month. Take one tablet every three days then have a day off, for a month. Take one tablet every two days then have a day off, for a month. Take one tablet every other day, for a month. Take one tablet every three days; tablet, day off, day off, tablet..., for a month. Take one tablet every four days, for a month. Take one tablet every 5 days, for a month. Stop taking acne tablets. My theory as a whole; - Taking antibiotics for most of my life has resulted in me having poor gut health, maybe group A strep / candida / leaky gut / H pylori?? This has a direct cause to cystic acne causing bacteria. - Increased carbohydrate, reduced vegetable consumption during my lunch time meal and stopping taking probiotics (all post-surgery), as helped bad gut bacteria thrive and increase my cystic acne. - A moderate carbohydrate diet results in acne for myself – moderate to high GI. A recent food intake and resultant cystic acne, may help prove this theory – - I had plain Quaker oats, instant oats two nights in a row before bed (Thursday and Friday), then the Saturday I got one of the worst cystic acne spots I have ever had. When I look back through my diet on MyFitnessPal and correlate to my acne flare ups, there seems to be a strong correlation, particularly post-surgery. - As a complete side note, a couple of points; - For a 26 year old male, my libido is very low. I rarely wake up with ‘morning wood’ etc and random erections are very infrequent. I discussed this with my GP and I had a blood test to test my testosterone levels. The GP stated they would inform me of my results, only if, the results showed anything irregular. They did not contact me. It has been like this for a couple of years. I couldn’t certain how long. - When I drink alcohol and go on a night out, my mouth can stay dry and ‘claggy’ with white salvia for up to 3 days afterwards, I appreciate alcohol dehydrates you but I don’t think it is normal at all. Especially when, I can drink up to 5 / 6 litres of water a day. Link to poor gut health? Questions; - Is my current regime, feeding the bad gut bacteria, hence my flatulence? From my research I’ve heard that introducing cruciferous vegetables and probiotics at the start of a regime to kill bad bacteria is the wrong approach? - Or is the flatulence a result of a change in diet and killing of bad gut bacteria? - Can I stop taking the antibiotics completely immediately? Or is my reduction regime sensible? - Does bad gut health / group A strep infection have any link to low libido? -Lastly, does my theory and current diet regime seem appropriate to make my gut health better and finally , after 10+ years stop my cystic acne? I really hope you can help me and provide some advice. My confidence is at an all-time low, I have spent thousands on different skin care products over the years to try treat my cystic acne, I finally believe I could be on the right track, by trying to increase the amount of good bacteria in my gut and removing the antibiotic use, I just don’t understand the flatulence. I did well at trying to keep this brief. Apologises. I look forward to hearing from you. Many thanks Josh  Katie: Hi Dr Cabral I am currently one of your wellness clinic patients and active listeners / readers. LOVE YOUR WORK! My question is what is your thoughts on the equalation diet? It claims you can eat whatever you want and be healthy and lose weight? It gets some great results which I struggle to understand given I strongly believe certain foods are not good for you eg. dairy, sugar, processed foods, which all feature on this diet. Really interested to hear your thoughts!  Chris: Hi, Do you provide on-line training? I am in Austalia and am looking to change carreer into the health and wellness area and have a great interest in a lot of the information that Dr Cabral provides. I'd really like to learn more so that I could use it in a procatice setting. Thanks, Chris Jamie: Hi there, just finished week one of the CBO protocol. Bloating and constipation seems to be worsening. I’ve upped vitamin c and magnesium (calm), drink a ton of water, plenty of body movement daily etc. I’m doing the healthy fats too. What do you recommend at this point? I’d already planned on the intestinal cleanse at the midway point but should I stop CBO and do it now or try to hang in there until week 6? I’m doing the nutritional support powder every morning with the blueberry smoothie. I added prune juice to it yesterday out of desperation. I’ve struggled with this issue for many years and have tried everything it seems, except I’ve never done an intestinal cleanse. Just looking for some direction as to what to do next. Thanks so much. Devouring the podcasts. ~Jamie Amelia: Hi there! Not sure where to ask this question on what test to get so I am going to lay it out right here! If this is the wrong place, please let me know where I can find it on the website. I am a 23 years old, haven't had a period since 2017 before I took Plan B. For over a year now I have had gut issues...loose stools, constipation, bloating, pain, food sensitivities, etc. In August 2018 (few months ago) I went to a functional medicine doctor who did a blood test on me. Came back with low cortisol, free T3, T4, testosterone, progesterone...and high TSH and thyroid peroxidase. I am now on Adernal Cortex and Nature-throid. My doctor was not worried about my gut problems, I on the other hand am very interested in this subject and am aware of the correlation between gut issues, stress (a whole other story), and health issues. My question is...what should I be doing now? I cannot afford an OAT and Stool test at this moment but I think that is the next big step. I have eliminated so much from my diet yet I still am having gut issues. On top of that I am noticing cold sore like things around the edges of my mouth and my puffy face still seems to be here. Please help! I am a less than rich college student who wants to heal herself and is struggling to get back to my old self! Have a nice day and thank you for reading my message, I am sure you get a ton. Amelia Olivia: Hi there, I've been suffering with serious gut, candida, hormonal and mitochondrial issues over the past two years and am interested in working in Dr. Cabral to try to resolve these health problems. Could you kindly let me know how I should proceed? I look forward to hearing from you!

1066: Nicotine, Private Client, Pre-Natal, CBD & Exercise & Epilepsy, Detox While Breastfeeding, Bloating Foods (HouseCall)

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!   Tracy: Hi Dr. Cabral, My partner has started vaping nicotine recently. I'm concerned about this and when we've discussed it he's said that nicotine isn't bad for you, that it's the tar in cigarettes that is so damaging to one's health. I don't feel comfortable with this answer and would like your opinion on the health benefits and/or detriments of taking in nicotine by vaping. Thanks so much for all that you do. I love your podcasts and find them so helpful. Tracy Jenine: HI! I'm feel very spiritually compelled to work with Dr. Cabral, and I am really hoping you guys can work with me! In January, 2017 at 38 years old, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer with mets to liver, lungs, and lots of lymph nodes. It was a shocking diagnosis to say the least....I only had symptoms a couple of months leading up to the diagnosis. I underwent a over a year and a half of chemotherapy and worked with a functional doctor. I juiced and became a vegan and my cancer did not show any tumors on the scans for about 6 months. The tumors showed up once again last November, and after more chemotherapy until this past spring, we decided to do a clinical trial immunotherapy in June. Although still better than chemo in terms of side effects, I began to have many autoimmune related responses....colitis being my main issue, but also temporary arthritis and secondary adrenal disease from long term use of prednisone. I've had a blockage this past summer from the colitis and was hospitalized multiple times for dehydration, and adrenal disease (the worst). After all this my latest scan showed a very small growth (width of my thumb) of another tumor in my liver. So now I was taken off the trial. There are other trials and an oral chemo that I will have to look into, but right now I am still suffering from colitis and adrenal disease so until I am off the prednisone, I cannot do treatment....I also need to heal so it's ok! I tried to wean off prednisone from 60mg to 40mg last week and was sick with diarrhea and stomach pain for 2 days. It has resolved itself since as I went back on 60mg for the last week. This morning I tried to wean again, and took 50mg, I will do that for 3 days and see if I can tolerate. My main objective is to support my body as naturally as possible as I am going through this. I also need a better way to support my body suffering with cancer of course and these autoimmune issues I'm getting! I am no longer a vegan as with colitis it was not possible to eat so plant based with the roughage.....I needed the protein as well. I do try to eat as healthy as possible, and do not eat red meat. I eat fish once a week and eggs 3-4 times a week. I eat a lot of rice and cooked vegetables, smoothies, etc. I have been indulging more than usual because of the state of my colitis and how awful I've been feeling, but I really need to be 100% on track again. I've looked into Ayurveda a few times, and have even done a 3 day cleanse with mung dal, but it's a little more complicated than I would like right now with all I am going through. The practitioner I went to wasn't great, and I don't think she was confident enough to help me with Ayurveda. I need some specific testing done, and a streamlined Ayurvedic approach to what I am going through right now, and I'm hoping you guys can help with that. I would love to speak and see Dr. Cabral. I know he has a waiting list, but I will get on if I need to. Or is there another way? I live in Northern, NJ so I can go to Boston. I am willing to do anything and believe the body can heal. Can you help me? Kristina: Dear Dr. Cabral, I have always been a health and fitness enthusiast so dealing with a sudden medical issue was a shock to me. I found out I was pregnant at 3 weeks and we were over the moon with excitement. At 7 weeks I started bleeding and it was dismissed as a miscarriage. After pressing several doctors for an ultrasound finally one agreed. They discovered a 3.1cm mass in my right fallopian tube - it was an ectopic pregnancy. We were devastated, but given the option to treat with Methotrexate injections or surgery. I chose Methotrexate, which has been disturbing to say the least just thinking of all the chemicals that are now in my body. I am thankful my tube did not rupture and that I am still alive. Methotrexate strips your body of all folate and can also be damaging to the liver. Folate will reduce the drugs effectiveness so I am on a zero folate diet until my pregnancy levels reach zero. We were told we would need to wait 3 months to repair my body and create a safe place for pregnancy. My question to you is what would you recommend would be the most effective way to cleanse my liver of these toxins and replenish my body with nutrients. Also in what order? (i.e. replenish with nutrients/folate rich foods first then do the cleanse toward the end of our 3 month wait?) Thank you Dr. Cabral! Colin: Stephen, I wasn't sure if this was the best avenue to ask you a question, but I figured I'd give it a shot. I was totally blown away by your two hour video with MindPump TV a few weeks ago on YouTube. The things it made me think of which I never have before were a huge eye opener. I really appreciate your approach. My question is this: I have read CBD reduces inflammation. Is this the same type of inflammation that a hard weight training workout induces? The kind that is necessary for muscle growth? Asking because I'm wondering if it would be a negative to use CBD, like taking NSAIDs which hinder the recovery processes from working. Is this logical? I just started using relatively low doses to assist me In getting sleep back on track, but Id hate to be negating all the effort of a hard days work in the gym. Appreciate you taking the time to read this if you can! Thanks so much -Colin Sonja: My name is Sonja, I'm 33 years old and almost three years ago I was diagnosed with epilepsy. After taking five different anti epileptic drugs during these years and experiencing bad side effects, I'm finally almost completely drug free and take around 100mg CBD daily. The catamenial seizures however remained. After testing my hormones, I knew it was due to low progesterone. I'm supplementing with bio identical progesterone cream and am seizure free since. But all the medication left my hormones unbalanced and I'm feeling not well despite all the natural remedies, herbs and supplements. I'm getting better, anxiety and insomnia are almost gone and so is the hormonal acne. But my T3 is low, I tested my vitamin D and it was 12.56 despite taking 2000IU daily. Now my doctor recommends strongly to run the big 5 lab tests. But before investing, I'd love to know the correct order. Should I stop some supplements before? (I take many; especially for hormone balance) Should I detox before? I hope it's ok to ask these questions. Kind regards, Sonja Kristina: Hi Dr. Cabral. You do not recommend a detox while breastfeeding which I understand. What are some ancient traditions that you can share regarding mother's health during a long term breastfeeding relationship, 2 years and beyond? In many ancient cultures and currently in many cultures around the world, nursing is common for many years. Between long term breastfeeding and multiple pregnancies that resulted in a larger family (we have four beautiful children), I have struggled to remain in robust health. What suggestions could you share for overcoming deficiencies and regaining energy and vitality in this situation? Is there anything special to share from your international studies? Thank you! Lorraine: I am suddenly/ but not a suddenly having serious stomach issues. I have for a long time had discomfort after eating I think- cooked onions mushrooms Brussels sprouts, whey protein. In the last 6 weeks I decided to eat healthy- which includes now eating all that plus... cut sugar and a lot of salt, no eating out. And my gut is brutal!

1065: SIBO Drugs, Salt Cave, Itching All Over, Metal in Teeth, Chicory Root, Stomach Bugs,Wine Detox, BPH (HouseCall)

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:  Rachel: I ordered your organic acids test. A western dr diagnosed me with SIBO without doing any tests and prescribed me xifaxan for 3 months. My question is, if i do the organic acids test now after being on xifaxan for 1 month, will results be a bad reflection ? Do i have to wait to take the organic acids test? Elaine: Hi, I recently had a Organic Acids Test done and was wondering if I sent you the results could you interpret it for me and what this would cost? Kind Regards, Elaine Tori: What are the benefits of salt caves? What should you look for when deciding between salt caves or rooms? Is there research that supports halotherapy (dry salt therapy) as a treatment for the conditions/ailments the salt caves claim? E.g., COPD, asthma, allergies, skin conditions like eczema and acne? Linda: In June I started itching first my head and earlobes it seem to go away and then it started on my hands and feet . The strange thing is that it would be gone for almost sometimes 2 to 3 weeks and then come back . Then I broke out in hives . My doctor suggested Sarna and histamine and Prednisones . The hives would come and go right now they seem to be gone but my hands, feet and head are itching again any suggestions . I must say the sarna has saved my craziness of the itching it does help some what. Anthony: I'd like to get more information on getting test(s) to discover the root of my health issues. How do I get started Alex: You were on the Mindpump podcast and great info. I wanted to see if you could send me some additional tips on Psoriasis and the website to remove metal from teeth. Thanks. again, great show. Elizabeth: Hey Dr Cabral, it doesn't seem as if you have spoken about chicory root before. I was wondering if it's a good alternative to those who drink coffee? Given the prebiotic (inulin) factor presumably it may not do well with some people? I know you've mentioned inulin before on your show but wondered your thoughts on drinking chicory root? Thanks for all and all the best. Tiffany: You have said on your podcasts that you don't have to wait the 6 weeks that your emails are behind to find out which tests you would recommend taking but I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask you the questions? It is about my daughter. She is 5 years old. We recently moved from US to Costa Rica, it's been around 6 weeks. Previously her diet has been great, not a picker eater. Everyone is impressed at how she will eat whole foods, salads and even whole fish (eyeballs and all!) along with Cole's Portuguese sardines... she loves them. We avoid over gluten-ing ourselves as well as avoid white sugar, and sugar in general (we use stevia). I always buy organic and even soak any nuts and grains that we will be consuming. We don't have access to the same food here and recently, everytime she eats (very little at that) she claims her belly hurts. She did recently battle with an inner ear infection and I have been excluding eggs and dairy from her diet for the past 2 weeks. She started at a new school and the bathroom is "dirty" and "the door doesn't close" so she has been struggling with holding "it" until she absolutely can't anymore and then having an accident. Luckily, her daily poops are around 4pm so we are home for them. My thoughts about what could be wrong are all over the place! Parasites, bladder infection, SIBO?!? We are returning to the states in 2 weeks so I can order a test and send it in but I'm not positive what test I should order. Hopefully this can get answered before our trip back as I don't think we will be back in the state for almost 1 year. Thank You in advance for your time! Valerie: Hello Dr. Cabral! First off, thank you for the Rain Barrel Effect. Really enjoyed the book. It was packed full of easy to read information. I've been telling everyone I can about it. I'm 57 years old and since my 30's I've not followed a very good diet and drank a lot of wine (1.75L in one week period) and excess coffee (700 mg/day) In March (2018) I went on a Whole Foods, Plant-Based Diet, I gave up drinking, zero coffee and work out, as per your protocol. I suffer from Adrenal Fatigue. I'm working with a FMD and waiting for my results from my Organic Acids Test and a stool test. My Mother had Breast Cancer at 54 (she's now 91) and my Sister has been recently diagnosed (age 60). My Sister is a heavy drinker and a junk food Vegan (a bag of chips for dinner). I was tested several years ago, for the BRACA1 and tested very low. My question is, with my years of drinking and poor lifestyle, does this increase my chances of developing dis-ease later in my life? Have I done to much damage over the years? Thank you and I always look forward to your Podcasts. Vivienne: Hi there, My name is Viv, I currently have multiple food sensitivities, which include histamine and salicylates and amines (these are recent in the past year). I've done multiple hair tests over the years and hormone blood tests, I'm on DHEA as this hormone is very low after being in birth control for 20 years (and coming off 3 years ago). I don't metabolise copper well and have low levels of copper/estrogen. I'm struggling mainly with brain fog and fatigue and also generally still unsure of what to eat and when (eating around 25 foods on rotation following the failsafe diet approach). What I want: Someone to help guide me out of a state of intolerance (I've been told many times I'm stuck with them but I don't buy into that) Someone to help guide me on what food to eat and when so that I have energy to get through the day (without resorting to using chocolate and modafinil which is the only way I feel I can function). Someone to help me heal my gut when most of the traditional supplements and healing methods are off limits because I can't tolerate them. Can you help and how would we get things started? I've sent a few messages before but no reply so I'm hoping you get this and can back in contact! Thanks, Viv John: Dear Dr. Cabral, I’ve been diagnosed with BPH and am getting up 3-4 times a night. I don't believe I’ve slept more than 4 hours straight in 3 years. I’m 57 years old and the doctors all say it’s a normal part of aging which I wholeheartedly disagree with. My wife and I eat clean, take supplements and workout 4-5 times a week (crossfit) and are in good health. What is your recommendation for shrinking the prostate. There’s got to be something that causes this condition.

1060: It's Time to Re-Invent Yourself (MM)

Sometimes people get upset when someone says they've "changed..." But, in my opinion, I'd be more upset if someone said I have remained the same... I believe that true happiness comes from the pursuit of your potential, and therefore, if you're still the same person a year later then you may not have actualized any more of your natural gifts...

1059: EMF Cases, Anti-Inflammatory Steroids, Hypnagogic Jerks, Body Type Assessment, Hashimoto's Diet, GERD Root Causes, OAT Diet (HouseCall)

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!   Stephen: I was listening to an interview that Stephen was doing with Loyd from the EMF Summit. He had mentioned that he has a case on his cell phone than helps block EMF/RF radiation from his cell phone. I have searched his podcasts and his website and could not find anywhere about what he uses as the case on his cell phone? Would you please give me a link or tell me where I can buy one of these EMF blocking cell phone cases? I have looked on Amazon and googled it and there is so much that comes up. I don't think the stickers work. Just wanted to know what he uses. Thanks so much for your help. Stephen  Bec: Hi guys, I discovered Stephens work last year and have been glued to his podcast ever since. I love his (and your teams!) approach to health and wanted to enquire about services for my mum. She has been suffering with memory loss and severe vagueness for 5 years now after a short stint on heavy steroids which were perscribed to treat her fibromyalgia. We are based in Melbourne Australia and have tried seeking help from GP's, naturopaths, functional medical practitioners and she has also undergone testing at the Melbourne Dementia clinic, with no definitive answers or diagnosis. I'm her daughter and have worked closely with her on all of these steps and can see her fustration/disappointment with no improvements to her memory loss which is very concerning. I would love to enquire about working with Stephen and if you feel your clinic could help uncover what the hell is going on! Look forward to your response. All the best, Bec Caleb: Hi Stephen, Just wanted to say that I absolutely love listening to your podcasts and learning new things each week. I am getting all of my friends and family onto your products also so thank you for everything you do. I am after some advice regarding a problem I have been experiencing for the past 5 years which continues to be getting more frequent. This is a topic that you have touched on in one of your house call podcasts but was a very generic case which you summed up to magnesium levels. I suffer from VERY aggressive hypnagogic jerks while falling asleep and all the way throughout the night every night. This problem is not only affecting me but also is stopping my wife from having a peaceful night sleep as I continue to wake her by unintentionally hitting her or moving the whole bed with some of my jerks throughout the night. Which is such a horrible feeling knowing I am doing this to her. I have tried the products below for at least 4 -6 weeks each which didn't seem to make much of a difference. Magnesium chloride trans dermal oil (applied to legs before sleep), Magnesium citrate, chilate, oxide, chelate (up to 600mg per day), Valerian, Melatonin, Valium, 5mg of gaba, brief meditation & stretching prior to sleep. My current supplement stack is as follows...-Cort RX by ATP Science. Which is a natural cortisol moderating supplement.- ZMST by ATP Science (Magnisum citrate, Zinc, Selenium & Torene supplement).- Iron supplement by Eagles (as ferrous bisglycinate) 24mg, (given by Integrated Dr) because my doctor said my iron levels are low for a male and it might be playing a part in this issue. My doctor also tested the magnesium levels in my blood which did not show any deficiency. I am currently training 5 days per week. I have been weight training for coming up 2 years and trying to put on size (which seems to be a bit of a struggle) and social basketball once a week. The only other supplements I am taking are creatine monohydrate (5mg per day) and beef collagen protein. I was wondering if you know what could be causing this and if you ultimately know a cure to fix this or decrease the frequency. The only thing I have found that helps slightly some nights is 800mg of DL-phenylalanine before bed but the jerks continue. Any advice at all would be greatly appreciated as you can imagine this is wearing thin on my wife's patience after 5 years. Thank you so much again. Kind regards, Caleb Joe  Hi Stephen, I was listening to a podcast today with Ben Pakulski. I was pleased to hear that you work in Boston. I am 30 years old and I live in the Boston area. I would like to make an appointment to come in and talk about possible tests and working out a diet plan. Thanks, Joe Lauren: Hi, My name is Lauren, and I'm a relatively newcomer to Dr. Cabral's material and podcasts (which are fantastic). I'm particularly interested in the Ayurvedic Body Type podcasts he's been doing; I've listened to them all. I'm having gut issues and a hard time losing weight (I had previously lost over 100 lbs in my 20s), but it's slowly crept up, even though I do my best to exercise and eat a healthy diet). I'm working with a functional nutritionist to get all my testing done, but my question is about the body types. According to what I see from Dr Cabral's assessment (I am about 50-60 lbs overweight), I am about half Kapha, thirty-some percent Pitta, and some Vatta, but the more I think about it, I don't have a lot of the Kapha physical characteristics. I'm six feet tall, medium boned, narrow shoulders, small waist and ankles, but thick hips, thighs, and calves, and I do gain weight easily (I'm getting my hormones tested). I really, really, really want to eat right for my type to be healthy, get balanced, and lose weight; so, how can I find out what I truly am for my dosha? Is this a service that you can do? I would greatly appreciate any help you can give! :) Regards, Lauren Kalli: I have Hashimotos. I’m so confused on which foods go eat. I have research many “diets” or healthy eating plans and one will says yes to one type of food and then the next will say no to that type of food and I just need some guidance. I struggle with digestive issues, depression, anxiety, most thyroid symptoms. I want to heal my body. Looking for some guidance! Erion: I see a lot of information here and around on weight loss, but what about weight gain. What holds me back is GERD and physical limitation because I cant lift weights due being disabled. Denis: How should I be eating prior to testing to optimize detection of the bad organic components were essentially looking for? I’m on a candida diet at the moment and I don’t want it to go undetected Incase if my current diet influences the test to undetected what we’re looking for.

1058: Life's Challenges Rant!, Carbs Before Workout, Crop Spraying Toxins, Meters, Blood Sugar Testing, Hormone Replacement (HouseCall)

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:  Suzan: Dear dr Cabral and team, Im a nutritionist living in Abu Dhabi, and im SUPER interested in your new training program. Please sign me up!!! I'd also love to book a detox plus appointment with you, so please guide me on how to do that. So grateful for all you do, in health, suzan Rachel: Hi Dr Cabral, Thnk you for all that you do; I am OBSESSED with your work and teachings! What are guidelines for what foods and what time you should eat before and after working out? My trainer told me carbs 1 hour before, and protein within 30 mins after. Is that right? Sometimes I feel better working out on an empty stomach, but I’ve heard that I’ll get a better workout if I eat before, even if that means eating at 530am.... And sometimes I’m not hungry for an hour after working out. Do I need to eat sooner than that? What is more, the additional food consumption before and directly after working out increases my total caloric intake for the day, and I’m not trying to get larger.. Your advice is greatly appreciated! Thank you!! Dee: Hi Dr Cabral We recently moved to Nebraska and there are corn and soybean fields as far as the eye can see. I’m concerned with how being in a highly sprayed area will affect our health. Do you have any suggestions on things we could do to combat the increased exposure to pesticides in the air? Thanks very much. Dee   Leah: Hello, I put my email for the IHP Charter Member launch. I realized that it will (at this moment) launch in 20 hrs and in about 10 hours I will be taking in a Jewish holiday which wont allow us to use any electronics until Tuesday (sundown). I am not sure what qualifies someone to get accepted as a student but it is something I am very interested in becoming apart of as I am a huge fan of Dr. Cabral and what he believes in. So my question is how can I be proactive about trying my best to better my chances in being one of the lucky 100 students. Thank you so much! Leah Cathy: I saw you on Lloyd Burrell's EMF summit. Your book looks to be written for the lay person and will be extremely informative to me as a novice to this issue. I'd like to start with an EMF meter. On the summit you avoided providing a brand name. Can you recommend a brand and where to buy a meter as I start my adventure in detecting and eliminating EMFs in my home. Thank you. Lindsay: Hope all is well! I just watched a very interesting video featuring Dr. Cabral and had a followup question and was hoping someone could help me! In the video he talks about ectomorph vs. endomorph body types and testing your blood sugar in the morning when you wake up, after you eat, after you work out, etc... Does he have any articles or podcasts on this topi? I want to test my blood sugar in the morning when I wake up (I believe I wake up with very low blood sugar) but I wouldn't even know what is considered "low" or a healthy range for after a meal, after a work out, etc...I would truly appreciate more insight on this topic. I am sure you get an overwhelming about of questions and comments, but I hope to hear back from you soon! Best,Lindsay Christianne:  Hi Dr. Cabral: I've been listening daily for months now to your podcast and appreciate them so very much. I've also recommended you and your teachings to so many friends/family. Have so much gratitude for you and your team - thank you!! I finally ordered the three tests you recommended for me when you answered my question about distention and bloat after eating in a recent HouseCall podcast. I'll be doing the organic acids / food sensitivity / stool tests as soon as I receive them in the mail. I'm crossing my fingers the 60 min consult will be with you. Possibly related, but maybe another issue entirely is my estrogen dominance. I just listened to the podcast from today about losing the last 5lbs. I feel like you were talking directly to me ;) !! I know from having my functional physician here in Miami run tests on me that I'm estrogen dominant, so in other words, my progesterone is low. She initially diagnosed me with hypothyroid, put me on thyroid meds, then when that wasn't making a huge difference and my periods were still super irregular, she put me on progesterone hormone on cycle days 14 thru first day of my period. My cycle is now way more regular, but I'M STILL FEELING AND SEEING INFLAMMATION! Especially in my hips, midsection. I have a feeling you are going to suggest the thyroid / adrenal lab test, however, will the results even be accurate given the two medications I'm taking? Would you recommend that I stop taking both meds, wait until they are out of my system and then do that test? i'm pretty terrified of the weight gain and low energy that might creep back.This is all so crazy to me because I'm the healthiest person I know! Diet excellent (i'm a health forward chef recently graduated from Natural Gourmet Institute), exercise a good amount (6x week including yoga and i'm a former fitness instructor), I meditate, have an amazing family and friends, stress is managed, etc.As a FYI: I'm 44 years old, about 125-128lbs and 5'3" but my normal happy weight is closer to 118. Whatever I do I cannot get back to my normal, happy less-inflamed body. Thanks for any suggestions you might have! Christianne. P.S. I'm also a Boston native :) Grew up in Brookline! But please open a practice here in Miami.   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/1058 - - - 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.

1055: The Truth About Carbohydrates (WW)

I believe the current argument against carbohydrates is very shortsighted and will lead to the eventual future detriment of many people following it right now… While it can have its merits in the short term and is typically recommended for very noble reasons in a clinical practice, that does not mean what works in the short-term should be done in a long term… To find out why and how to overcome these long-term hurdles tune in to today’s #CabralConcept 1055 to discover the truth about carbohydrates – Enjoy this sure-to-be-controversial show! - - - Show Notes & Resources: http://StephenCabral.com/1055 - - - 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.

As we are about to start the New Year and you begin to set your goals it’s extremely important that you look beyond the “what” you hope to achieve...

1052: Non-Dairy Formula, Slow Oxidizer, Fatigue & Immunity, Dystonia, Lupus, Keto Gone Wrong, (HouseCall)

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!   Sandra: Hello! Love your podcast. My supply is drying up please help! I have listened to your podcast about goat milk formula and I’m forced to choose between two. One is called Holle Organic goat milk formula and the other one is non gmo Kabrita goat milk Formula. Should I choose the organic one because non organic has pesticides? Here are the ingredients for both. Do any of these ingredients look alarming to you? You said to stay away from palm oil. Seems like every goat milk formula available has some type of palm or vegetable oil in it. What about organic dairy formula? Baby only is the brand I used with my daughter. Is Taurine an ingredient I should avaoid? What about palm kernal oil? Sunflower seed oil? I’ll attach the dairy one too for ingredients. I know you can’t tell me what to feed me baby but i value your opinion and i hope you can educate me on which one has the best ingredients so i don’t have to have anxiety over it. Cant wait to hear your response on the podcast. Hope all is well. Holle organic goat milk formula: ORGANIC GOAT MILK POWDER, ORGANIC MALTODEXTRIN, ORGANIC LACTOSE, ORGANIC VEGETABLE OILS [ORGANIC PALM OIL, ORGANIC RAPESEED OIL, ORGANIC SUNFLOWER OIL], CALCIUM CARBONATE, L-TRYPTOPHAN, SODIUM CITRATE, CHOLINE BITARTRATE, VITAMIN C, L-CYSTINE, L-METHIONINE, L-ISOLEUCINE, VITAMIN E, IRON SULFATE, ZINC SULFATE, CALCIUM D-PANTOTHENATE, NIACIN, COPPER SULFATE, VITAMIN B2, VITAMIN A, VITAMIN B1, VITAMIN B6, MANGANESE SULFATE, POTASSIUM IODATE, FOLIC ACID, VITAMIN K, SODIUM SELENATE, BIOTIN, VITAMIN D, VITAMIN B12.

Can you please do a podcast on slow oxidizers? My husband and I have recently gone through a 1 hour coaching session with one of your fabulous health coaches and she mentioned that we were both slow oxidizers. She answered our questions and gave us some great health recommendations but I'd love to learn more about slow oxidizers. Are there specific foods that would be best for me? How should my habits differ from a fast oxidizer? Is it a good or a bad thing to be a slow oxidizer? Anything else I should know about being a slow oxidizer? Thank you, Judy Jordan: I am interested in working with Dr. Cabral on wellness issues including general fatigue and immunity issues. Is he able to do this consultation remotely? I live in Tacoma, Washington. Also - will you bill insurance or provide me with forms to submit to my insurance company? Carter: Hey stephen! LOVE everything you do!! I have a cousin with cery bad dystonia, have you heard of this? It is genetic in our family but my mother does not carry the gene. He is stuggling bad and has found little relief with brain surgeries, wires/batteries put into his chest and brain etc. He would be willing to try ANYTHING and supports alternative medicine 100% so please ANY suggestions will be greatly appreciated! Thanks again much love everyone on the cabral team!  Stacey: Hi Dr. Cabral. I was wondering if you could do an episode on lupus if possible. My husband has lupus that affects the skin only. He breaks out in rashes if exposed to too much sun. It is pretty well confined to his back. He is 41 and it presented itself in his mid 30's. He does take an anti malarial medication to help control it. Are there any dietary or lifestyle changes that we could make to better control this? Any advice would be appreciated!! Thank you, Stacey Zoe: Hi Dr. Cabral, I've just listened to your podcast on keto (965) and I wanted to confirm that everything you have warned about has happened to me. I'm a highly stressed (presumed/self assessed) vata-pitta dosha - I operate at a hundred miles an hour and pride myself on "efficiency" rather than moderation. I started exercising with a personal trainer 3x per week for 6months (on top of walking 10k steps, cycling everywhere and generally rushing about all over the place) and undertook a highly keto (80%+ fat diet) for this period, plus a further 6 months. I also undertook significant fasting periods (regularly 60hr water fasts) and undertook fasted workouts. Initially, I felt good, almost "high" and was running off cortisol/adrenalin. In the last couple of months, I realised that I was flagging and wasting my muscles (despite undertaking strength and cardio training). Long story short, I think I have flogged my adrenals and thyroid half to death (nb I was previously informed by a conventional GP that my thyroid was borderline underactive, although I never took medication) - I am now introducing a lot more carbs into my diet (now aiming for 200g per day, which is more than I have had for years and years). (I think) I have realized my mistakes with surviving on a keto diet with long periods of fasting just in the nick of time - and am thankful for your insight, which helped me come to this conclusion (albeit more slowly than I should have!). A quick question - do you think that fasting for any period longer than the overnight 12 hours can be helpful/advisable for someone in my situation - that is a high-cortisol, adrenal fatigued female in her early thirties. I loved the effect that fasting had on clearing brain fog and an almost "spiritual" feeling after the 36 hr period, but im now afraid to do anything to further wreck my fragile adrenals. Secondly, and unrelated, would it be possible for you to dedicate an entire podcast to the menopause.

1051 Clinic in India, Collagen Powder, Gastroparesis, Cheat Meal Timing, Halt Cognitive Decline, Exercise Post Nasal Drip, Pinpoint Pupils (HouseCall)

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:  Nala: Hi i was hoping that you could recommend a center in india do do a 21 - 30 day panchakarma ? Ive been researching my own but thought with your experience you could refer a place Thank you. Ps im and organic farmer and permaculture land scaper living in California. I would like to continue eating organic and being in a place out of a city. I loved your book everyone in our family (extended) is reading it Cherie: I am about to start the CBO protocol and was wondering when/if I can continue to use my collagen powder. Also I liked day one and day two of the 7 day detox. Could I continue to only have the all in one shake on the first two days of each week during the CBO protocol? Annika: Hello there, thank you for the great work you're doing. My sister told me that you are about to launch your own certified program to teach people your way of healing. Unfortunately, I cannot find anything about it on your website. Maybe I looked in the wrong places. Is there an email list I can join to get more information about it? Thank you for getting back to me. Best regards from Germany Annika Brooklynn: Hello, I’m in my late 20s, and have been diagnosed by a GI with leaky gut and gastroparesis. I eat gluten, diary, and almond free after getting my IgG and IgE results back. I struggle with bloating, constant exhaustion and fatigue, and lately extreme pain and soreness in my neck/shoulders. Can you please let me know what you’d recommend? I’m unsure of what to do. Thanks in advance for your expertise, insight and knowledge. I appreciate and respect how dedicated you are about helping others, and love your consistent enthusiasm and passion on your podcast! Joel: Hello, I am interested in doing the CBO protocol but since it would go through the holiday season I was wondering if you are allowed cheat meals during the protocol. If so, how far in to the protocol are you allowed a cheat meal and how many times a week? Thanks! In good health, Joel  Julie: I'm writing in regards to my 83-year old father. He has dementia and suffers from significant cognitive decline and loss of muscle strength and control. He's not wheelchair-bound, but uses a walker full-time and is very unstable. I just listened to podcast #746 on halting/reversing Alzheimers & brain-based aging diseases. I'm wondering if it's too late to help my dad? He's so thin, I'm afraid of major diet changes that would cause him to lose weight but at the same time, I would do anything to help him if there's any hope. Lisa: I have been working out for over 10 years but the past 2 month I have noticed that every day when I go to the gym or even when I use my cybex machine at home I get this post nasal drip down my throat during my workout . What could this be and what do suggest I do for it? Lydia: Hi Dr Cabral - I recently found your podcasts and have been listening and learning. For the last 8 or so years I have done my best to be my own naturopath. I did Dr 30 day incurables cleanse 7 years ago.. I found a great homeopath and also a good naturopath, as well as a functional medicine chiropractor, but none seem to have been able to help me the way I feel you will... I feel such a relief to know that I can find some answers, finally. Thank you so much for you willingness to help those of us who just don't know where else to turn. I took the Big 5 Lab tests you recommended and I am on a hopeful path forward and I thank you for that. My question -I have constricted pupils and have had constricted pupils for around 8 or so years now. I guess I would call them pinpoint. My pupils are always small. When I am in a room with a bright light they are tiny and when I cover them or dim the light I see no change or barely a change. I went to an iridologist and she thinks that this happens when someone has extreme adrenal fatigue. When I did the Big 5 lab tests on 7/9/18, the results did show that my cortisol was: 7.7 morning,1.8 noon, 2.7 evening H1.5 night H. I am currently doing the CBO protocol, I am also taking 2 -Adrenal Soother capsules at lunch and dinner. I went to a optometrist who recommended vision therapy and light therapy, but neither the vision therapy or light therapy (red and green) have helped. Do you think that my constricted pupils may be from my high cortisol levels? If so, should I take anything in addition to the Adrenal Soother? Is there something else that can cause this? Any thoughts or suggestions are most welcome. I realize you can't diagnose or lay out a treatment plan. What would you recommend a member of your family do? thank you . . . with warm regards, Lydia 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/1051 - - - 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.

1048: How to Overcome Mold Toxicity (The Complete Mold Protocol) (WW)

It's an unfortunate reality that 1 in every 2 homes in the US and the UK (most likely other countries as well) have an unhealthy level of dampness and mold overgrowth... And, the worst part is that most mold toxicity symptoms come from the exposure to invisible mold spores that are floating around in your home or office and land on furniture, pillows, or are directly inhaled... My goal today is to enable you to see why mold toxicity is underdiagnosed in conventional medicine and what symptoms you should be looking for...

1045: Detox Lab, Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy, Candida Food List, Hemochromatosis, Switching Probiotics, Chronic Bronchitis, Tele-Meeting, Fluid in Ears, Food Intolerance (HouseCall)

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! Megan: I was wondering if you recommend doing particular lab tests before doing your detox? Or Is it okay to just complete the detox at any time? I wasn't sure if you wanted to look at different levels before vs. after the detox. Thanks! Beth: Hi Dr. Cabral! My name is Beth. I'm 25 years young and I have recently, in the past year and a half, been diagnosed with Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy (JME). No one in my family has any form of epilepsy that we know of, so this was strange to us. My neurologist has me taking 750mg of Keppra twice a day, once in the morning and then again at night. I have been told that if I plan to have a family in the future, I will have to come off of this medicine because it can be harmful for a baby. He suggested I also take a good folic acid, which I have been doing every day. My question is, is there anything plant based I could take in replacement of this medication, or anything in conjunction with? I have never had a full-blown seizure, I was just having what he called "mini seizures" almost daily, especially when tired. One of these "mini seizures" caused me to drop an eight pound dumbbell on my forehead while lifting weights, and from there having the stitches, EEG, and brain MRI is how I was diagnosed back in 2017. The medication has completely stopped these "twitches" as I called them. Sorry for the long post, just looking for any healthy option here. Thank you for your time. I love listening to your podcasts!  Cherie: I am about to start the candida protocol soon. I like to make a salad dressing with flax oil, I usually take a couple tablespoons of apple cider vinegar throughout the day and I also usually drink about 4-8 ounces of unsweetened cranberry juice mixed in my daily water intake throughout the day. Are these three things allowed and if not how should I try to reincorporate them into my diet? Christine: Hi Dr Cabral, I want to thank you for all you do and I’m wondering if you can lead me in the right direction. I am 55 years old, going through menopause, currently on hormone therapy which I know is not the best thing. I also take a compounded thyroid medication-T3, pregnalone, adrenal support, 5 htp, omega 3,probiotic and a daily multivitamin. In addition to all that I use your daily nutritional support shake on a daily basis. My dna testing came back showing I am a carrier for the mthfr gene but also suseptible to hemotomachromosis. I have had one lab result come back with elevated iron before. My question is this, I understand the benefits of vitamin C and how it works in many aspects, anti aging etc etc. My naturapathic dr even said I should take it to help support my adrenals. Also with winter coming I’d like to take it during cold and flu season. But how can this be done safely to avoid elevating my iron levels? Thank you for all you do and I look forward to hearing your reply. Hanna: Are you supposed to switch up your probiotic after a while?  Jennifer: Hi Dr. Cabral, I'm a relatively healthy woman in my mid 30's. My diet is ok, though I'd say I have 4-5 cheat meals a week that often include dairy and occasionally gluten (not sure if that is relevant). Once or twice a year over the past few years I will get a lower respiratory cold that I assume to be bronchitis. The coughing is fierce and will typically last a month. My friends and family always push me to go to a doctor to get antibiotics, but most of the research I've done tells me that it is most likely a virus that can't be treated with antibiotics. I take a more holistic approach to health than those around me and would rather treat myself with this approach. Being sick this long takes a toll on my work and pretty much puts me out the entire time I'm sick. 1. At what point do you recommend visiting a doctor if you think you have bronchitis (if at all) and do you think antibiotics are necessary or the best option? 2. Are there supplements or a protocol you'd recommend to treat bronchitis from a more holistic approach? 3. Once you've recovered from bronchitis are there immune supporting supplements or adaptogens you'd recommend taking to keep your body healthy as a preventative? Something you'd take year round or maybe seasonally? Thanks so much for all that you do. I really think your podcast is opening people's eyes up to a whole new approach to health that they didn't know existed. Mackenzie: Hello! I live in Philadelphia and I came across Stephen Cabral's videos on YouTube. I am interested in working with him, does he accept clients via tele-meeting? For reference, I'm a 26 year old female and I've struggled with disordered eating (being both overweight and underweight at different times in my life). I would like to figure out a final solution to my diet and health, as it's been consuming for me. Please feel free to let me know what opportunities I may have with the center! Thank you, Stefanie: Hi Dr. Cabral, A friend of mine introduced me to your CBD Oil and I have had really positive results. I was wondering if it will be available online again at some point? If not, is there another place that it is available? Thanks! Katie: Hi Dr Cabral, I'm writing from Australia and came across your podcast through the gorgeous Melissa Ambrosini and am now devouring every single episode from the start and want to say thankyou for taking the time to read my question. My problem is that I've been dizzy for over a year, I have fluid in my ears and inflammation in my nose and constantly feel pressure in my face and behind my eyes. There is no pain just the dizziness and pressure. I have been back and forth to the doctor with no answers. Im losing hope in ever feeling "normal" and well again which is why I am writing to you and I would love to hear what your advice would be. Thank you so very much. Katie  Rebecca: Hi, I have been listening to Dr. Cabral's podcast for the past several months and have found so much value in the content. I have been experiencing some issues that I believe to be food related and am interested in some type of testing to determine the root cause. On several occasions after eating I have experienced severe nausea which sometimes has led to vomiting or diarrhea and on other occasions has passed after several hours of feeling sick. These symptoms usually occur several hours after eating once I lie down to go to bed and are different from what I consider "typical" acid reflex which I have experienced since childhood. On more than one occasion I have experienced nausea after eating food cooked in a smoker such as ribs, pizza and chicken. However, I have also experienced the same symptoms when eating foods cooked by other methods. I have not been able to pinpoint a specific food or spice so I thought that it may be helpful to do food sensitivity testing. I have an allergy to sulfa drugs but no known food allergies. Is this the best test for me to perform or is there another option that you recommend?

1044: Blood Type Vs. Dosha, Meat Only Diet, FM Testing, Mucuna Pruriens, ME Symptoms, Vata Weight Loss, Ear Candling, IgE Desensitization (HouseCall)

HouseCall Intro for Libsyn For Saturday 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:  Jake: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have been really getting into your podcasts on Ayurvedic Medicine, and have really been getting into the doshas/body types. I really am seeing some trends amongst friends, family, and myself depending on body type. I have read a lot of the blood type diet and I am wondering if there are any correlations with Ayurvedic Medicine and blood type or the blood type diet? Thank you!  Natalie: Hi Dr. Cabral, I'm hearing a lot of banter around the "meat only" diet. People often reference the inuit communities to support the long term efficacy. I would love to hear your perspective. Thank you so much! Natalie Kylie: Hi Stephen and team, I wanted to make enquiries with regards to your functional lab testing and coaching call included and then also your private concierge practice. I have been suffering with chronic illness for a number of years, two years ago I became so unwell I had to stop working and move back home with my family. With a history of gut issues, constipation, candida, bladder infections, eating disorder etc. The year leading up to moving back home, thyroid issues, loss of periods, strepteccocus overgrowth of 96%, liver congestion and my bowel stopped functioning completely on its own. I have tried many things and always learn to a more wholistic natural approach, I have definitely healed in many ways in the last few years but still my bowel requires daily supplements of herbals to function, I have lost a lot of weight due to not absorbing nutrients, I react easily to food and am on restricted foods no grain, limited protein, just fruit and vegetable all fresh and organic, I also react to many supplements and always have to approach with care, I still have thyroid issues and gut issues, and suffer exhaustion as well as nausea, cramping etc. I have been considering getting some of your tests done and was wondering if the cost is in US dollars? I am in Australia. And also the hair mineral analysis test, this doesn't work if you have coloured hair from hair dye does it? I also wanted to ask what tests you find are most beneficial, I was drawn toward the thyroid, and organic acids testing. But wanted to know what is recommended, cost is a consideration for me as well having spent so much on my health. I also wanted to ask re you private coaching and if this is an option how far in advance it is booked out, and is this also US dollars?I have been looking at your supplements and also different protocols, Saccharoyces boulardii I am actually allergic too and have tried in the past can you not use this if you do get testing and suggestions and perhaps something else be offered.Also how does the call work included in the functional lab tests if you are in Australia with time differences? Is it just one call you get?Thanks so much Kylie Darrell: Hey Dr. Cabral. Great show. Thank you for this. It has been a life changer for me, my family & friends. I'm writing from Tobago. I've used your search bar before asking and haven't seen anything on either Mucuna Pruriens or Shilajit. I heard they're both used un ayurvedic medicine. What are their benefits and do you recommend it for say a male in his late 20's (or anyone for that matter). Javier: Dear, Mr. Cabral. This is Javier (24 years old) from Peru - South America. It was hard to find a person that finally understands my symptoms but finally I found you so far from my country. Let's get to the point. Ive been following a Candida Diet for about 3 months at the request of my doctor. I experienced some kind of improvement the first month but I've felt little progress since then. I continue with the same symptoms: strong fatigue, muscular pains, difficulties from just getting up from the chair, walking and any kind of movements; long list of food sensitivities, but the most surprising fact for me is that I have so many difficulties in talking to people and reading and I also get sick very easily and frequently out of nothing. Ive already listened to some of your podcasts and I have run a Organic Acids Test in Great Plains Laboratory whose results will be ready in about 2 weeks. My question is what can I expect from these weird symptoms that have me deeply worried. I'd also love you to tell me what sources of carbohydrates I am allowed to eat during this Candida Cleanse Diet (maybe beets, carrots, sweet potatoes, berries, maca root, low glycemic fruits?), because I've been on a Keto Diet for 3 months and it seems far too long period of time for me since Im practicing weightlifting 4 days in a week (to keep my health and self-confidence up during this difficult times) and my thyroid profile is kind of low according to some blood tests I did a couple of weeks ago specially my T3 levels (1.81 pg/ml) Thank you so much in advance. Sincerely,Javier  Sunny: Hi there! I have two questions: I think that I am a Vata-Pitta body type (primarily Vata), and am struggling to lose weight. In your podcast about diet plans, the Vata plan is geared more towards those who lose weight easily, however I need a plan that focuses on losing weight. So, would starches in the morning and grounding foods still be okay on the diet? Can you give more tips for Vata weight loss? Also, Will you be offering the Dosha body type analysis service to listeners? In one of your previous podcasts, you mentioned that we could send in photos for your team to analyze and come back with the correct dosha body type. I would love this! Adrianne: Dr. Cabral, Do you recommend or have any feedback on ear candling? I did it for the first time a couple weeks ago with positive results, but I would appreciate your thoughts. I was surprised it hadn't come up in 900 episodes. I am 37 years young and getting younger everyday, now that I am armed with your knowledge. The concept of removing toxicities, replacing deficiencies, and re-balancing the body, has been transnational for my family! T h a n k y o u ! Anonymous: Hi, Is it possible to get rid of some (or all) IgE food/environmental allergies? I have gone through some of the previous podcasts where you discuss IgG sensitivities going away after healing the gut, but does that apply to IgE reactions as well? I do not have the financial means to get functional medicine lab testing at this time or to see a functional medicine practitioner, but I am curious to know if, in general, IgE allergies can theoretically go away. If it is not possible for IgE allergies to go away, is it okay to eat the foods I'm mildly allergic to (no anaphylaxis) or should they all be avoided because they will increase inflammation?
