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!    Leah: Hi Dr. Cabral. An overall background about me. I live and breath a healthy lifestyle (and love it - no deprivation here;)). I exercise daily, always walking... living off a clean, mostly plant-based, no highly processed foods + organic diet (well-balanced macros + micros), dry brush, tongue scrape... the works. I'm not tooting my own horn but rather give you a general picture of my lifestyle. One thing I can honestly agree is that my stress levels and anxiety are my biggest battle. About a year ago I have been finding myself at this burnout state. Feeling nauseous, weak (in bed) and fluelike symptoms, which happened about once or twice every other month (give or take). After reading your book (the rain barrel effect) It all made sense to me how I got to this state over a long period of time, even though everything else was right, the toxins (stress) just overflowed. My question is this:I did the FM detox, and while I see many amazing results from family and friends who did it with me, I didn't see or feel major changes. I didn't go down on the scale or react in any way. I try to implement meditation and overall calming rituals to balance my stress levels. I haven't been in this burnout mode for a while, but then sure enough... this week I find myself back in this cycle (this time I also experienced indigestion issues).What other steps can you suggest (lab test + lifestyle changes, or supplements) that I should implement?Also, side note: While It isn't my main concern; I have been struggling with the last 5-10 lbs. Eating clean (not too much but definitely enough/ full) and moving around (16,000 steps daily average and strength training 4-5x /week) Would this stubborn fat be related to the stress and anxiety? Thanks again for the amazing messages and knowledge you share with us all. You have impacted my life in ways you can't imagine. I really appreciate the time and effort you give. All the best, Leah. Anonymous: Hi Dr. Cabral. I am starting to incorporate organ meat into my diet and was wondering if there is a limit to how much I should eat? It is all grass fed and finished and comes from a local farmer. Also I have been listening to a podcast with a doctor who eats carnivore and he eats his meat raw. I have since looked into this and have seen many people online who do this. I am not considering this but out of interest, what are your thoughts on eating meat (organ, muscle etc) raw? As always thank you for your response. Melissa: Hello I am so thrilled to have found you earlier this year! I am binge listening to your Podcast and have heard you talk about genetic testing. I was wondering if you continue to recommend testing and which brand you recommend? Seems like I remember something about teleomere testing! I love learning from you and would love to know half of what you have learned! Jenny: Hi Dr. Cabral! Thanks for all the amazing information you share with us daily, for free. I listen to your podcasts to and from work everyday and it's made my commute seem "worth it." Question about genetic predispositions. My mother has battled (and won) 2 breast cancer battles. She is BRCA1+ as are my sister and I. I chose preventative, risk reducing surgery to lower my breast cancer risk which I feel really great about especially because my sister just finished her breast cancer battle. We also have a 54% risk of ovarian cancer with this mutation. I know you said we can change or maybe turn on/off our genetic predispositions. I'm currently 37 and am not ready to start a family. My gynecological oncologist is pushing fallopian tube/ovary removal to lower my risk of this awful cancer (known well as the silent killer) but I'm not ready. What are your thoughts and advice you have on this topic if this was, say your sister or daughter in this position? I appreciate everything you do and are trying to do! I hope to join the IHP level 1 one day as I love learning.
