    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!    Nicolo: I have noticed that my cuts take a long time to heal. Not the clotting part but just seems to take a lokng time to be fully healed. Summer: Hi Dr Cabral! I recently found your podcast and have been bingeing episodes, they are such a wealth of knowledge. Thank you for what you do! I had a baby in July of 2020, an emergency c section after being in labor for almost 3 days. Ever since birth I feel like my body is holding onto a lot of inflammation. I know a c section is a major surgery so it would take a while to heal, but now being 15 months postpartum I am getting very discouraged I will never look the way I did before again. I am already gluten and dairy free - and did a poop test with X Company and have cut out those foods as well (most cruciferous vegetables/nuts/beans etc). I am at a loss as to what could be going on. I workout fairly regularly, drink lots of water and eat relatively healthy. Could this be parasite or mold related? Or is my body holding on to weight because I am still breastfeeding? How do I go about figuring out how to get back to my body pre baby? Thank you for the advice! - Summer Joanna: Hi Dr Cabral What foods do you recommended to eat during a women's cycle at each phase, luteal, follicular, ovulation and menstruation? I am not referring to seed cycling but just general foods. As I have listened to your seed cycling podcast, but could not find any of other foods. Thank you so much Audrey: Hi Dr Cabral. My 2 month old daughter has a sub glottic hemangioma that was blocking 60% of her airway. The dermatologist and ENT have her on Propanolol and want her to be on it for the next 6 months. I hate the thought of my young daughter being on heart medication. Eventually these stop growing when she is 1 year old but since it's in her airway, we can't take any chances. Is there an alternative treatment I could be giving her? I am nursing her as well, so anything I could be taking to help her? Thank you so much Kristen: Hello! For the first time my almost five year old has had a fall allergy this year. He has a cough from something. He also has an allergy to egg and wheat. He has never been in antibiotics, was breastfed, and fights off viruses quickly when he does get sick. His dad has seasonal allergies and a few food sensitivities, so there is a genetic predisposition. What can I do for him that will help him get out of following down the same road? I know any type of strict detox is unrealistic for a young child. Thank you. Morgan: Hi! Love your recent podcasts on gut health. I have been struggling with gut health issues for years and trying to figure it out with conventional medicine only, which has failed me unfortunately. What do I do if I tested and I have parasites, SIBO, candida overgrowth and H. pylori? Where does one even start when you have ALL these things?! Please let me know, I am so lost on where to begin!

    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:  Holly: Hi Dr. Cabral, thank you for being such an inspiration and source of knowledge; you've transformed my health and now helping me transform my families too! My youngest son aged 3.5 often sleeps with his mouth open (breathing through it rather than his nose) I've heard you mention this isnt good and wondered 1. Why? 2. How I can make him a nose breather (if that's possible)? I also hear him grinding his teeth often in his sleep, is that something to worry about? Thanks again, Holly x Anonymous: Hi Dr. C! Thanks again for all you do. I am doing the CBO and following it to a T. I did have a question as some of the food listed on your sensitive gut guide are "not approved" when it comes to removing or limiting traditional FODMAPs. For example asparagus, broccoli, beans, beets, watermelon, and squash. What is the difference in your plan vs that? I know you have a method to your madness but just curious on your variations. Are those foods not actually fermentable in our guts? Also as we reintroduce new foods down the road, what symptoms should we look for? Would they just be digestive disturbances since this is a gut protocol or would they mimic food sensitivity symptoms? Thanks again!! Andrea: Hi! Thank you so much for answering my question! What is the minimum fat percentage you'd recommend for a woman? It seems like a very low fat percentage can sometimes cause hormonal dysfunction. Would you say 15% maybe? Catherine: Can integrative medicine help people who suffer from arrhythmia? Dar: I'm 39 years old and had low ferritin around 4. My specialist had a CT scan done and he noticed that one of my kidneys had shrunk quite a bit and believes only the one kidney is functioning but doing well. Is there anything I can do to try to regrow the shrunk kidney (most likely the MD said from a sports injury or since birth) I had told him I took a number of hits in physical sports growing up. Also what do you recommend for supplementing the remaining kidney with. Maureen: Dear Dr. Cabral, Thank you for your amazing podcast. I look forward to it every day and have learned so many tips to improve my health. My question has to do with eating seeds. Every day, I put 2 Tablespoons Chia Seeds and 2 Tablespoons of Flax Seeds in the Daily Nutritional Shake. I blend this all up to make it easier to digest. I often eat Hemps Seeds later in the day for additional protein as well as pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds on my salad. Do you think this is too many seeds to eat in one day? Might I develop an allergy to them or is it hard on the digestive system to eat this many seeds?

    It may sound strange, but one of the first places (if not the very first place) you should look for the root cause of why you have brain fog, fatigue, low mood, skin rashes, or acne is actually in the gut…   That's because your gut is either helping you stay healthy by extracting life-giving nutrients, or it's causing your body to become inflamed through dysbiosis and increased intestinal permeability…   It's also not as complicated as it may seem…   And that's why on today's #CabralConcept 2127 I'd like to share with you an actual case study where we get to the bottom of those exact health issues and how we helped this client to rebalance their underlying root cause issues - Enjoy the show and let me know if you have any questions! - - -   Show Notes & Resources: http://StephenCabral.com/2127 - - - 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 At-Home Lab Tests: > Complete Minerals & Metals Test (Test for mineral imbalances & heavy metal toxicity) - - - > Complete Candida, Metabolic & Vitamins Test (Test for 75 biomarkers including yeast & bacterial gut overgrowth, as well as vitamin levels) - - - > Complete Stress, Mood & Metabolism Test (Discover your complete thyroid, adrenal, hormone, vitamin D & insulin levels) - - - > Complete Stress, Sleep & Hormones Test (Run your adrenal & hormone levels) - - - > Complete Food Sensitivity Test (Find out your hidden food sensitivities) - - - > Complete Omega-3 & Inflammation Test (Discover your levels of inflammation related to your omega-6 to omega-3 levels)

    Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend! I'm looking forward to sharing with you some of our community's questions that have come in over the past few weeks… Let's get started!    Nadia: Dear Doctor Cabral, thank you so much for all you do to help the community and for your very interesting podcast! I would like to ask if you could indicate me in which direction we could look regarding my dad's health. He is 62 years old, 5feet7 and weighs now less then 125 pounds. He has always been thin (even though he eats 3 times more then the rest of the family) but muscular. But now he really has just skin on his bones even though he still eats a lot (and healthy). He goes to the bathroom at least once a day, sometimes after every meal, which is very good. And his blood work came back normal. He's been trying to gain weight for years but he just gets more and more skinnier and is pretty preoccupied. He is very active all day, always working around the house, in the garden, loves hiking and biking. A Nutritionist told him years ago that it will be impossible for him to gain weight and that it's much easier for overweight people to lose weight. Do you have any advice on how my dad could get to a normal weight again or what we should look at? Thanks so much for your time and help, Have a great day, Nadia Erin: Vitamin c help!! Ok so i was told only to take food based vitamin c but all the other is synthetic and depletes copper....so can you please clear this up for me. I really appreciate it!! Ryan: Hello! I have seen recently a somewhat controversial opinion on D3 supplementation and would like your opinion. Usually, I'd gloss over something like this, but considering the high reputation of the source in the functional/integrative space, I thought I'd get your highly valued opinion. Quote… "D3 is not what they measure in a vitamin D test. They measure 25D. The problem is, they should be measuring 1,25D, and better yet, the ratio between the two. Supplementing D3 will raise your 25D levels which shuts down your vitamin D receptors and innate immune system function. Supplementing D3 above what we naturally get in food will massively increase calcium absorption. In a hard-drinking water world, that causes hypercalcemia, magnesium and K2 deficiency.” Jamie: Hi Dr Cabral thank you for all you do. I have been listening for a very long time. I'll try to keep this short as I did try to search if you have talked about this before but couldn't find anything. I currently see a Dr who claims to be an integrative doctor local to me. I'm 33 year old female. I weigh around 130#. My symptoms have been thinning hair, nail fungus, zero libido, zero energy and pms 2 weeks prior to menstruating, (this has been for many years) increase of stress the past two years due to my job. . He did lab work and my thyroid levels are low, and vitamin d was low. He also told me that I should take Progesterone 100mg qhs for the pms symptoms / low energy. Long story short I'm taking t3/t4 15mcg daily (along with fish oil, vitamin d, b complex, magnesium from EquiLife) I had more lab work done recently and my IGF-1 is 208 (says it should be 280) and he is recommending Sermorelin therapy. I googled it and it sounds fantastic. All the things I need (energy, libido etc) but my question is being only 33 (no kids) is going to harm me in the long run taking these hormones? I know you can't tell me to stop, I just need advice on really what this Sermorelin therapy is and if it is going to hurt me in the long run taking progesterone “forever”. Thank you Leah: Big thanks to you and the team for all the information you put out! If you must get the vaccine, and it is not your preference to do so, can you detox from it? And if so, how? Thanks! Andrea: My 9 year old daughter started menstruating this month. She is already taking a daily multivitamin, what other supplement would you advise her growing body would need to better support her during this stage?

    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:  Ryan: I know you're not a big fan of artificial sweeteners, but from what I've been able to find in the research, there seems to be many meta-analyses and RCTs, in humans, showing that there is no negative effect on bodyweight, glycemic variability or the microbiome, or that there is actually beneficial effects on bodyweight. Studies that show otherwise either seem to be in animals, or providing extremely large doses that would not be realistic for everyday life, or both. Is this a case of the science not being caught up to clinical practice and current times? Or is there definitive research showing the negative effects of artificial sweeteners in humans, in realistic doses? Would love if to hear your valued opinion on this. Thanks for all that you do! Marianne: Hi Dr. Cabral, I love your show. My husband was diagnosed with PVC or Pulmonary Ventricular Contraction. He is on the medication Metoprolol to regulate his heartbeat. He's trying to reduce his stress at work and reduce his alcohol consumption. He drinks about 2 cups of coffee per day. Is there anything else he can do or take to help regulate the heartbeat without medication? Anonymous: Huge fan of the podcast, I listen everyday! One topic I've never heard discussed is the use of anti-viral medications. I've heard a lot about antibiotics and the bad effects they can have on our guts, but I've never heard about anti-virals. The reason I ask, my 3 yr old has been taking low dose acyclovir daily for the past year to prevent frequently recurring cold sores. We think they picked this up from an extended family member or daycare, since nobody else in our family has ever had a cold sore. A year ago they were getting them about every other week. When one would show up, we'd immediately start acyclovir to knock it out quickly, but when we'd stop, another one would pop up a week or so later. We've also tried low arginine high lysine diet, which didn't seem to make much of a difference. I asked our pediatrician about taking a lysine supplement, but they didn't feel comfortable with that b/c of age. The low dose daily has worked really well for us, but now I'm concerned it may be causing other problems. Since early July, I've noticed hives about every other day on my child. They're mostly on the legs and torso, not huge, and they don't seem too bothersome, but I'm wondering if long term use of acyclovir could've caused this, thoughts? And any thoughts on daily lysine use? Tony: Hi Dr C, I can't find anything on your podcasts about amino acid BPC-157. Have asked your support team they said to ask here. Carpenter since a young boy, now in my 60s, used a lot of pressure on my knees for my job property developing, floor tiling etc, at one point (in my 50s) it was so bad I couldn't get up off the floor; lucky enough found a fantastic acupuncturist which made it a lot better. Unfortunately can't find him anymore. Job slowed down but knee pain got a lot worse, struggled to walk on my right knee, even considered knee replacement, prefer to avoid GPs, hospitals etc and go down an alternative route. My daughter had me on a decent turmeric/curcumin, MSM, Proteolytic Enzymes and arnica oil, until she found BPC-157. After a few days of this I could walk. The only thing that bothers her is that it is synthetic. So we gave it a couple of weeks then stopped. Knee has been overall good since apart from an odd day here and there but to go from barely walking to what feels normal is more than expected. My mood has also improved maybe because I can walk! Previously felt as though the bones or ligaments in my knee were rubbing together and there was no fluid. Normal weight, 5'9 don't do any strenuous exercise, other than my job and walking. Thank you Elizabeth: Hi Dr Cabral, My dad has had a dark spot (almost black and the size of a small mole) on the very right corner edge of his lower lip for the past year or so which has not changed. He has no desire to go to GP (had a few wrongful family experiences of being told something awful by a GP and it turning out to be wrong, so don't want to be looped into any fear mongering or pharmaceuticals). He is fine otherwise, in 60s, generally in good health apart from some stressful phases, eats a balanced diet, does love wine but never smoked/taken meds. I'm thinking maybe Angiokeratoma / vitamin deficiency or possibly hormone related. I've looked at the natural topical remedies that may help but wondered what may be best and whether topical iodine could be a solution? P.s. are you familiar with Indiumease?

    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!    Jody: Hi Dr. Cabral. I was hoping you could give me some information on sebaceous cysts...what are they, where do they come from and what happens when they get infected? I have searched your podcasts and don't believe I have heard you mention them before. I had one on my shoulder apparently for a while, where it just seemed to be a small bump. It became infected and painful and my doctor put me on antibiotics. After a few weeks to a month it was much better and has actually disappeared. I have several now on my labia where they too became very irritated and painful. My OBGYN prescribed me a cream that did not make it any better so eventually put me on antibiotics again. That helped a little but not like it did with the outcome of the one on my shoulder. I have a cluster of them on both sides of my labia and they still sometimes become irritated. My OBGYN did say I could have them cut out but that seems very painful due to the fact where they are located. I would love to hear any thoughts or advise you have regarding this. Thanks so much for your time and for all you do. I really enjoy listening to your podcasts every day. Angie: Hi Dr. Cabral. I recently overcame HPylori and am working on my digestion. I am doing your parasite protocol. started taking your DNS powder and will do the CBO protocol soon. When I took the DNS powder it resulted in pain under my right rib cage, so I lowered my dosage to half a scoop, which helped. My questions is, how do I heal a dysfunctional gallbladder so I don't have to get it removed? I also have low stomach acid and gastritis, what are your recommendations to heal those? Kirsten: I am on day 1 of the 7 day detox. Regarding days 3-7 vegan/paleo meals what are the thoughts regarding including gluten free grains like quinoa, rice and oats. Also what about raw nuts - walnuts, almonds, cashews? Lastly what about seeds? I have been going through everything and thought it said no grains and the program itself is nut free, I am presuming because the allergen potential, but i can't find specific discussion on these. Thank you Nic: Hi Dr. Cabral, I've developed a pterigium on my eye and I wonder if there is anything I can do to make it go away or stop growing? I'm terrified of the thought of surgery down the road. Also, why would I have developed it in the first place? Thank you! Nic Stacey: Hi, I have binge listened to your episodes this week. Carb cycling is a lot of interest to me. I tend to work out daily, so tend to keeps my carbs at the higher end. Is that impacting my weight loss? I'd love to know can you be doing too much. I walk 10,000 steps daily and do a 40-50 min workout each day. Thanks Ryan: Hello, I have a question regarding a friend with Klinefelter syndrome and osteopenia. If you were to take lab tests out of the equation, these 2 conditions I'm sure immediately bring to mind some interventions and practices you would like to prioritise to improve health and balance in the body. I was wondering if you had some ground level go-to advice based on the presence of these 2 conditions?

    2115: Detox Protocols Order, Vasomotor Rhinitis, Tight Jaw, Chronic Pelvic Pain, Diverticulitis, Taking Herbs on Fast (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:  Andrea: I had a question for you based on the health plan you provided me back on 4/7. after completing my metals test. Before I could follow-out this plan of detoxes/metals detox, I had lots of abnormal symptoms begin so I had to see my functional medicine doctor. She performed multiple additional tests and long story short, I was recently diagnosed with SIBO, colon bacteria overgrowth, +e-coli, low sIgA, chronic UTIs, and inflammation/elevated CRP. So in addition to the supplements I normally take, I am now also taking the supplements/herbs (attached) for 3 months. Then the plan would be to complete a general detox and metals detox. The problem is we are trying to get pregnant as soon as we are able to (after this 3 month SIBO treatment plan). So in order to also complete a detox and metals detox, I was curious if I'd be able to complete Dr Calbral's general and metals detox while I am taking the attached supplements? Or must I wait til I'm done with these before starting the detoxes? I noticed the metals detox is 6 weeks and wasn't sure if there is a shorter version of this too? Thanks! Katie: Hi Dr. Cabral! What can you share about vasomotor rhinitis? My allergy doctor believes I have it as my normal allergy symptoms have gotten so much better after many protocols, but I still suffer from one odd symptom - the feeling that my nostrils are inflamed and small, making it hard to get air in through my nose. I frequently end up taking sharp sniffs to get enough air through my nose. There are no other symptoms of this aside from occasional throat (and then chest) pain from being so tense trying to get air in. What can I do to overcome this naturally? Thanks for all you do! Jessi: Hi. Thank you for all that you do, Im new to the podcast, I had one issue (im not 100% sure you answered already i tried to look it up on past podcast, but wasn't able to find anything. My question is of 2 1.) I think every night or a lot of nights I wake up with a tight jaw, I once woke up at 3am and i noticed I had my jaw Clenched, not sure why or if its even a health issue, or mental. 2.) Ever since i can remember I've always only had one nostril working. some times it switches, mostly is my right nostril that gets stuffed or can't breath through it. If you can shed some light on this id appreciate it. Maggie: Hi Dr. Cabral. I am a huge fan of your podcasts and try to follow your advice as much as I can. I have struggled with chronic pelvic pain and inflammation in my lower abdomen for about 9 years. I have had ultrasounds, a CT scan, a cystoscopy, physical therapy, botox injections, antidepressants, was put back on birth control in case it was endometriosis, you name it, I have done it. The pain/inflammation started while I was on a course of metronidazole. Ever since then, I have had recurring yeast infections, white coating on the tongue, depression/anxiety worsened, brain fog and just overall feeling more fatigued and feeling like my immune system isn't as strong as it was pre-pain. After listening to your podcasts I thought it made sense that candida would be the culprit so I am currently on week 5 of the CBO protocol. I have noticed a change in my brain fog, yeast infections, and overall mood, but have had no changes to the constant dull ache and inflammation in my lower abdomen. Do you think that this could possibly be caused by something else? The pain is worse if I worked out recently or tends to be worse at night. I stopped smoking weed as that would make the pain worse, maybe from the change in blood pressure, not sure? Any advice is much appreciated. Thank you so much! James: Hi Doctor Cabral I been diocese diverticulitis and had acute attacked many times over the past 15 years. I have been told to get the operation. I take antibiotics when this happens and know that is also not good for me. However it now is two years since my last attack. I am 65 years old and concerned I may need the operation in later years. How can I prevent it from happening and can I cure it with diet ? I take your supplements especially probiotics. What would you recommend? Trying to avoid an operation and trying to cure it. Alex: Hi Dr. Cabral! I am so thankful for all of the content and energy that you have pushed out for everyone. My question is on shilajit. When you take shilajit, does it break a fast. Thanks again.

    Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend! I'm looking forward to sharing with you some of our community's questions that have come in over the past few weeks… Let's get started!    Lindsey: hello Dr Cabral. Thank you for all you do. For the last year I have gotten many chilazens on both eyes. At this current moment I have 3 on one eye one on the other. I do the hot compresses every day with no effect. After seeing many doctors one finally diagnosed me with ocular rosacea. Unfortunately the only suggestion was three weeks or more of antibiotics. My question is what is the underlying cause of ocular rosacea, or chilazens in general. The doctor said the oil is stuck in the gland, but I want to know why it keeps happening. Also any recommendations? Thank you! Shari: Hi doctor Cabral, I hope you're having a great day! I was wondering if you could help me with following: I've been diagnosed with hypothyroidism, SIBO and dysbiosis. I want to start treating them naturally, however I'm wondering which came first - the thyroid problems or gut problems. I feel that one probably caused the other. What are your thoughts about it? And which one should be treated first? Thank you SO much for your podcast and everything that you do! And just FYI - I've just purchased the CBO protocol and I have a feeling that it will help me on my way to perfect health :) Shari Joanna: Hi Dr Cabral Hoping you can help. I have completed the full CBO and while on the CBO I was taking Vitamin C crystals for histamine ( I took this type of vitamin C as better for oxolates) towards the end of the CBO I started getting alot of reflux burping etc. I am now on the heal and seal. I have found Vitamin C and anything with citrus like lemons etc causes tingling in my face and hands and now down to feet. I am assuming this is due to low b12 and low iron from low stomach acid. Is it possible Vitaminc C straight ascorbic acid can cause low stomach acid or even push down b12? As I retested my HTMA towards the end of the CBO and my cobolt was down to 0. Before CBO was normal. On heal and seal now and I still have bloating plus tingling and reflux, I have started taking hcl and removed any foods causing me reflux. My main question is, I am concerned I now have a return of SIBO due to low stomach acid, I am a bit concerned of doing the GSE drops again as it's citrus and have done GSE already like 3 times now over a few years, and concerned my stomach lining has eroded Would he clean gut probiotic be enough to help with any remaining SIBO if there is any? Or you can only remove SIBO with GSE, GI balance and clean gut all together? Many thanks for your help much appreciated :) Maria: Hi Dr. Cabral! I've been reading a lot about the benefits of plant protein and have been trying to convert myself over to eating less animal protein. My ultimate goal would be maybe 5 animal protein meals a week, instead of the 14 I currently eat. My problem is that I'm having a hard time adjusting to the fiber intake of beans, chickpeas, etc. After eating a meal with 1 cup of black beans or chickpeas, I have horrible gas and bloating. I've done the food sensitivity test and no legumes showed up as sensitivities, so I'm guessing this reaction is all due to fiber. How do you suggest I make this conversion? How long should it take for my body to get used to this amount of fiber? Side note, I have awful histamine issues that I'm currently addressing, so I stay away from tofu because of the high histamine level. Currently on week 2 of CBO protocol. Bec: Can you please give me insight into my eating pattern. Largely I am an extremely healthy eater. Green juices (largely veg), balanced meals (protein, fats, Veg) take Foundational supplements, exercise, 3L water & mid week fasting days & don't take medications. Have done Cabral 21 day detox, Cabral intestinal cleanse (12 months ago) & Liver Cleanse. But I need to understand the psychology of my; 1. Binge eating on sugar. The desire for sugar generally occurs after a healthy meal-but if I sample sugar it turns into a binge ( uncontrollable). I am unable to have a small portion. I don't understand the physiology/chemistry of my body that I am so overwhelmed with sugar. 2. When Im with a social group and a platter is presented ( cheese, Quince, Crackers). I eat uncontrollably even if I am satiated prior OR a meal is provided after. I try to analyse whether it is nervous energy/do something with hands-but feel Im a confident person and shouldn't need to obsessively/anxiously snack. 3. Drink Fast-again in social scenarios I drink quickly. I replace some alcoholic beverages with sparkling water to offset the speed and therefore the amount I drink. I also used to be a social smoker-so wonder whether this eating/bingeing behaviour is some mild neurosis. Pls help me understand & overcome. Anonymous: Hi Dr. Cabral, I am a devoted listener and I'm going through IHP level 1 right now and loving it. I researched my question, but couldn't find an answer. Hoping you can help. My husband was recently diagnosed with gynecomastia. He is 6' 1" and 165lbs. Eats a healthy, well balanced diet of mostly organic food and is on a good daily regiment of supplements. He has had the minerals and metals test run about 6 months ago and the hormone test run about a year ago. Both pointed towards his body being under a lot of stress...electrolytes depleted, cortisol high at lunch and too low in the evening, and his DHEA and Testosterone were low (testosterone was 68), estradiol was normal. We implemented the protocols given at the time by his practitioner, including taking DHEA for 12 weeks. The things he is working on are his sedentary lifestyle (he works from home as a computer tech and his low energy makes it hard for him to get up and get moving as much as he would like) and he typically has a drink or 2 most evenings.

    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:  Stefanie: Hi doc! Thank you for all of your incredible knowledge! I don't drink often, probably 2 glasses of wine every two weeks or so. I was thinking of taking some EquiLife FM detox on those nights. Do you think this would be of any benefit at all? If so, is it best to take them before or after drinking? Any other supplement recommendations? Bee: Hi Dr Cabral, I am interested to know your thoughts on clothing and footwear that are made from recycled materials such as plastic bags, plastic bottles, nylon and the like in terms of toxicity/off-gassing etc. There seems to be an increase in 'sustainable' and 'eco' clothing I am seeing around ranging from sportswear and leggings to outer wear and shoes. Are they safe and low-tox to wear in your opinion or would they contribute to ones total toxic load? Love your work! Anonymous: Hi, i am a 17 year old female and have been struggling with insomnia from childhood, i tried different methods for getting rid of it - breath work, reading … ect It works for some time and then i get used to is and back to square one. I heard in one of your podcasts that magnesium supplement and melatonin can work. What are the different and how much and which one should i take? Anonymous: Hi,Dr Cabral. I have a question regarding certain dark areas on my body, my neck, knees and hips (when sitting) are much darker than the rest of my body, what are the reason for this and what are your suggestions on how can to cure this? Thanks in advance Stephanie: Would you say that a sauna puts you in a sympathetic nervous system state? I'm a 23 year old vata with tons of anxiety and cortisol levels through the roof. I have stopped working out for now because it was very high intensity which has only worsen the situation. I will return to working out at some point but while I rebuild my body, I'm sticking to 10k steps daily. I'm trying to find another way to sweat but no sure if a sauna is good for me right now. What are your thoughts? Andrea: Hi! Thank you so much for answering my question! What is the minimum fat percentage you'd recommend for a woman? It seems like a very low fat percentage can sometimes cause hormonal dysfunction. Would you say 15% maybe?   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/2108 - - - 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 At-Home Lab Tests: > Complete Minerals & Metals Test (Test for mineral imbalances & heavy metal toxicity) - - - > Complete Candida, Metabolic & Vitamins Test (Test for 75 biomarkers including yeast & bacterial gut overgrowth, as well as vitamin levels) - - - > Complete Stress, Mood & Metabolism Test (Discover your complete thyroid, adrenal, hormone, vitamin D & insulin levels) - - - > Complete Stress, Sleep & Hormones Test (Run your adrenal & hormone levels) - - - > Complete Food Sensitivity Test (Find out your hidden food sensitivities) - - - > Complete Omega-3 & Inflammation Test (Discover your levels of inflammation related to your omega-6 to omega-3 levels) - - - > View all Functional Medicine lab tests (View all Functional Medicine lab tests you can do right at home for you and your family)

    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!    Samantha: Hi Dr Cabral, I had the big 5 ran and found out I have an extreme sensitivity to vanilla. I also found out I need to stick to a low oxalate diet. :( Would you suggest I take the daily activated multi-vitamin instead of drinking the dns shake since I can't have vanilla or cocoa because it's high oxalate? If so, what would you suggest for a substitute on protein powder? Thank you once again for bringing awareness to so many health concerns. Because of you I was able to bring my TSH number down on my own using Adrenal Soothe and Thyroid Support! :) Jen: I wanted to put in a request for you to do an entire show on the root causes of hypoglycemia. There is a lot of talk surrounding high blood sugar, but my problem is low blood sugar and it really disrupts my life. I know this isn't a simple answer, so I would love to hear a full episode on the topic if you would be willing :) Jason: Hello Dr Cabral, first of all I'd like to thank you for all the content! I really appreciate it :) I've been suffering with chronic non bacterial prostatitis / CPPS for the last couple of years. Typical symptoms include: Frequent / urgent urination, Poor urine flow and hesitancy, At times painful urination with a milky/cloudy discharge, Lower abdomen pain, Testicular pain and Perineum pain. The urinary symptoms are present 24/7, however the pains will come and go, my last flare up was really really painful. I have been prescribed many different antibiotics over the years, my doctors use to say I had epididymitis, however it kept coming back year after year. I was finally referred to urology and they said it was non bacterial prostatitis, I couldn't take flomax due to side effects. I've had a CT scan which came back normal and an ultrasound scan of the testicles which came back normal. STD tests all clear. I have regular blood tests and my neautrophil count is slightly low, my doctors have assured me it is nothing to worry about. I have a peanut and nut allergy so I avoid these foods at all costs. I workout 3/4 times per week and use the traditional sauna 4+ times per week. Any advice would be much appreciated. Matt: a friend recently recommended Stur Water Enhancers, it contains Stevia but also contains natural fruit flavor, concentrated white grape juice, citric acid...however it is zero calories but contains 1g carb. will this break my fast for weight loss? Angela: Aloha Dr. Cabral, I don't need to waste precious air-time proclaiming you are a worshipped in my house as a demi-god kahuna. So instead I will pose a question about bone loss. I use a "smart" scale which now says I lost 0.4 lbs. of bone mass over the last 2 months. I am now in the "inadequate" zone of bone mass and it has me concerned. The only thing different I've been doing in the last 2 months is perhaps eating less meat and not as much resistance training. What do you think about the accuracy of these "smart" scales', especially reading one's bone mass, fat and muscle composition? Are there any dietary changes or supplements I should take to increase bone mass? Of note, I'm a 51 y.o. perimenopausal woman trying to prevent old folk problems! I eat a plant-based diet with fish 1x/wk. I am waiting for my Big 5 Lab results to come back as well. Will those results shed light on my bone health? As always, mahalo for all your knowledge. Angela Chris: Hi Doctor Cabral! First I'd like to thank you for being a huge part of who I am today. Your teachings have improved my life in so many ways. My question is about parasites. I had a parasite and took the parasite protocol (Para Support Protocol) by EquiLife and all my parasite symptoms went away. Since one of (if not the only) bad things about eating organic produce is the higher chance of of ingesting parasites. I've seen several videos of people putting organic produce under a microscope and seeing worms inside things like berries. I know there are ways to wash the outside of produce but what do we do about the parasites inside? I'm worried I'll just keep getting them no matter how many parasite protocols I do.

    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:  Caroline: I have worked with a functional practitioner for a year and a half to heal my H pylori infection. To treat Hpylori, I used biocidin, bio-HPF and triple probiotics for two months. Now I take bio-HPF and probiotics daily and have no symptoms, however, if I stop bio-HPF, the symptoms come back within two days. I feel amazing on the herbals, but feel extremely defeated that I still have the infection. I am now interested in antibiotics but I am scared of the long term side effects. Do you ever feel like cases are in need of antibiotics or is there is deeper reason I am not fully treating H pylori? I take HCL with my meals to help digestion and have no stomach pain but is it better to avoid these while treating H pylori? Lisa: Dr. Cabral- Thanks for sharing so much great information!! My question is about my granddaughter, 3 years old, who has been diagnosed with enamel hypoplasia (soft enamel). By the time you read this she will have undergone surgery to put crowns on several of her teeth due to widespread decay. Her pediatric dentist says it is due to my daughter having had some some of fever during the pregnancy at the same time the baby's teeth were forming and that there is nothing that can be done for it. The dentist said my granddaughter will always have soft enamel and will probably end up with lots of crowns or implants, possibly false teeth. My daughter is beside herself because she feels it is her fault. She provides good dental care, lots of tooth brushing, limited sugar and processed foods, and no fruit juice. I'm in school for nutritional therapy and even though I've learned a great deal, I'm not sure how to help my granddaughter. She is a picky eater, which might be due to her teeth being uncomfortable - we don't know. Please help me understand what might be done from this point on to help her have the best outcome possible. Thank you! Lisa N Darren: Good day Dr. Cabral. We appreciate all you do. May seem like a trivial question and I'm not putting you on spot to promote any brand but when you highlight the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar you typically talk about Bragg's. Would like to know if other brands like Vermont Village, Heinz, Dynamic are also good to use given they're USDA organic, GMP, non GMO and contain the "Mother" too. Thank you Luann: Hello Dr. Cabral! I hope all is well with you today! Do you have any insight into why my face gets very red when I exercise compared to the rest of my body? This has happened even when I was a little kid, and even when I was young and in very good shape running track and cross country. It also happens to my son who is and has always been very athletic. Thank you! Lu Brooke: Hello. My son is almost three. About 6 months ago he had giardia. We gave him what was prescribed and he cleared up. Since then, however, whenever he gets over tired or off schedule for a day, the next day he has diarrhea. We had him retested and he tested negative for giardia but positive for leukocytes in his stool. Do you have any thoughts on what it may be or what the best protocol to help his little guys would be? Thanks so much for your time! Krystle: Hi Dr. Cabral, My question is a bit threefold, so thank you in advance for your review and guidance! I delivered identical twin boys at 33.5 weeks, resulting in a 23 day NICU stay. One of my twins was required to be on a CPAP for lung support. This twin is constantly contracting rsv - the first time needing hospitalization for oxygen support. I've been told asthma may be inevitable, so I would like to strengthen his lungs, immunity and try to prevent further complications down the line. My other son is frequently battling eczema - both who are now 2, have been diagnosed with a minimal stove too egg allergy and have been advised they will grow out of it. I have noticed that by removing dairy and gluten, the eczema clears up. Wondering if there are any connections between both twins symptoms or if they are requiring separate treatments. I appreciate your suggestions!

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!    Nicolo: I finished the 21 day detox and feel great. the one issue that i thought would be relieved by the detox was bumps/pimples on back of upper arms and shoulders. i am 44 year old male 6'-1" 200 pounds. Lorena: Hi Dr Cabral! I'd love to get your view on the following: For young women that don't have their periods whether it is due to primary or secondary amenorrhea, are chronic levels of low estrogen an issue? Estrogen levels of 211 pmol/L for example. I've read that: 1. Not having a period is strongly correlated with below normal bone density. 2. Heart function - low estrogen is associated with a increased risk of heart disease as estrogen helps with the formation of hormones like nitric oxide and so keeps levels of vasoconstrictors low. 3. Increased risk neurodegenerative diseases as estrogen is highly protective of brain cells because the cells called microglia are turned off by estrogen and progesterone thus reducing inflammation in the brain. Do you agree on the above? Tessi: I am a 36 year old, and have addison's disease and hypothyroidism. I recently suffered a Missed Miscarriage (silent miscarriage) after being 8 weeks pregnant. Is this common for people who have autoimmune issues? I read that it this type of miscarriage only happens to 3-5% of females...I really want to try to get pregnant again but scared this may happen again.... Currently I'm waiting to get my big 5 lab results back so I can start my healing journey. Lorena: Hi, it's me again :) If the risk for osteoporisis, heart disease and brain diseases are increased on a woman with amenorrhea what would you advice be other than getting the period back? At this point, I give up on getting my period back. It's been years without it since I came off birth control and never got it. I've gone to the best endocronologists and gyneocologists in Germany and they can't figure out why I can't get my period back. All of my hormones are normal according to them. Maybe a little on the lower side when it comes to E2, LH and testosterone but that's about it. I even ran the saliva test with your team and they said that my estrogen, DHEA and progesterone were a little low but nothing crazy out of range for me not to have my period. I did all of your protocols (CBO, CBO finisher, heavy metal detox & more). Foundational protocol level 3 with extra vitamin D & magnesium. One endocrinologist suspects hypothalamic amenorrhea but tbh I doubt it. I'm a 25 year old vata (bmi 20.1. & 14% body fat.,10k steps per day & 30 mins of strength training 4 times a week. Eat 90% plant-based with plenty of protein, carbs and fat approx 2000 calories). Maybe body fat is a little low? I'm doing everything right and I just want my period back. Leandro: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you for answering so many questions. I find the answers very helpful and I have learned so much. My question is regarding waking up in the morning with a locked jaw. My wife, for years wakes up most mornings with a locked jaw. You can actually hear her jaw pop, like when you crack your knuckles, when she tries to open it most mornings. Sometimes she says it's stuck for a little bit before she can open it. She has been to a chiropractor and seen other doctors and dentists, but most doctors/dentists recommends she gets a shot of botox to help address it, which she doesn't want to do. Is there anything you could recommend to address this? She has PCOS, but otherwise is a very healthy woman. Thank you. Aubree: My question is, is there an underlying issue that goes along with ganglion cysts? I've had two. The first went away on its own and the 2nd one I've had for a couple of years. Any help you can give without getting it lanced?Thanks!

    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:  Anonymous: I have HSV-1 (genital) and used to have a flare up once a year, then when I developed a Candida problem it has been 3-4 times a year. After getting the covid vaccine, I am now having outbreaks every 2-4 weeks. For the last 6 months I have completely changed my diet to mostly meat and veggies to keep the right ratio of lysine/arginine in my body. I drink acv with gse and cayenne daily. I run three times a week, get enough sleep, take a multivitamin, etc. I cannot figure out what else this increase in outbreaks is from without linking it to when I got vaccinated. I have a stressful job but have had that stress for years so that is not something recent. I feel like I am starting to become depressed with how often I am going through these outbreaks. Do you have any other recommendations or have you heard of the vaccine being linked to more frequent outbreaks at all? I love your podcast and appreciate any advice you have. Shelly: Hi Doc! Thrilled to have this resource to guide my health. Thank you for your selflessness. I am hoping you can help me with the supplements I am taking. I feel I am double-dipping and not taking them at correct times but it's easiest to take them after I break my fast with a smoothie. I am a 44-yr-old female, 5'5”, 130 lbs, very healthy lifestyle. I strength train 3 days/week, HIIT 2 days, rest 2 days. My workouts are 30 min/day. I start my day with a smoothie: almond milk, DNS & lots of fruits and veggies. I am almost 100% DF and GF. I get 7½-9 ½ hrs sleep/night and fall asleep within 2 min. I fast from 7:30pm-11:30am most days & do one 24-hour fast/mo. I was diagnosed with RA 3 years ago and changed my nutrition immediately. I found out 2 yrs ago that I have a hole in my heart that I was probably born with. 14 years ago I began getting 1 ocular migraine every 2 years. Weird. I haven't had one in 2-3 years now. I take Pure Curcumin 500 with Biopterin & Vitamin D3 5,000, Nordic Omega 330 EPA/220 HHA, St. Joseph's Aspirin 81m, Magnesium Oxide 500 mg Zinc 15+by Kal, Equilife mushroom pills. What are your thoughts on my situation? Am I taking too much or not enough of something? Thank you so much. Deanna: hi Dr. Cabral, I had some recent blood work done and it came back with low ferritin and low white blood count. My herbalist said to get a covid antibody test which may account for the low white blood cells. That test was negative. I am wondering what other causes might be? In addition, I also have had a lot of random bruising which seems to have mysteriously started since my partner received his vaccine. I have not taken it myself. On a side note, you have answered my question about fever blisters in the past. I have determined that I would get them any time I was in the vicinity of a cell tower. I started researching EMF sensitivity and found that glutathione and NAC are both helpful for mitigating the effects of EMFs. I have not had one fever blister since taking these two supplements. Coincidence? thank you for you podcast! Deanna Ryan: I've been suffering from severe toenail fungus for well over a year. I've done OAT + mycotoxin combo testing and both showed perfect results. Low/normal yeast, fungal, and mold levels. I've been following a healthy diet & lifestyle for years, have done the CBO protocol in full, and continued to follow the diet template in that protocol for the past 1 year since completing it. I've tried foot soaks, topical creams, ointments, essential oils, and literally dozens of proposed toenail fungus remedies and can't beat this thing. I've done extensive ozone (rectal + topical), h202 therapy, IV vitamin C, nail fungus laser removal, and more. Nothing has worked to eliminate the toenail fungus. I don't have any other symptoms or fungal issues anywhere in/on my body (that I know of). I am at the point of trying oral itraconazole or terbinafine. I have been reluctant up until this point due to potential side effects, but I feel I have exhausted virtually all-natural health options and they do have a high success rate. I'm not looking for any medical advice, simply your personal opinion on oral anti-fungal drugs and what you would do in this situation (hypothetically speaking of course). Lily: Hi Dr.Cabral, Do you have any advice regarding back acne in male adults? My husband has been experiencing a lot of acne all over his back, shoulders, and chest. Some are very deep, and some are blackheads. We have tried soaps for sensitive skins and also acne body washes and spray that contains salicylic acid. Could it be something in his diet? I tried to search your podcast but could not find anything on this specific subject. Thank you so much for your time and your wonderful podcast! Chelsea: Hi Dr. Cabral! Fellow Bostonian living down under in Australia. Sharing your podcast far and wide down here! Thanks for all you do - you're truly amazing at what you do, and so generous to share such in-depth knowledge with the community! I just started the limited yeast protocol after reviewing my labs with your team. Leading up to now I've often used a high quality flavourless collagen protein/beef gelatin powder made of bovine hides (see below for link) as I'm mostly plant based but struggle to digest plant proteins. Would this disrupt the CBO/limited yeast protocol or hinder my results? I often put in smoothies as I like that it's tasteless which I like, but don't want to compromise my results. I take the daily nutritional support separately in a little shake with water as I like the fresh unflavoured taste of fresh fruit and veg in a smoothie. Also just curious why things like nuts, seeds, red meat, and bone broth aren't allowed during limited yeast protocol as I wouldn't have associated them with high yeast! Thanks again for all you do and for the time you spend sharing with the community!

    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!    Darren: Good day Dr Cabral. Hope all is well with you and family. I read James Nestor's Breathing book on your recommendation and after hearing him on your show. What are your thoughts on "mewing" as recommended in the book. If it's something you believe has benefits (or drawbacks) is it possible for you to discuss it further? Thank you Anonymous: Hi dr cabral, thank you infinitely for all you do and your passion for sharing your knowledge with us.. i love listening to the podcast. My question is for my daughter who is 18. She is in college and is busy. She enjoys exercising and is on the cheer team so lots of tumbling and is active but she suffers from anxiety. Some days worse than others, especially these days. I too have it. I take the adrenal soothe. Would that be something that she could take as well ? Any other suggestions ? Thanks so much again - take care Nicole: Hi Dr Cabral! First off, thank you for all of the time and effort you put in…it is GREATLY appreciated! I have been struggling with severe cramping, bloating and back pain about 7 days before my period starts. I've also had lab work done over the years and it has shown that my progesterone typically peaks within a high range during first half of luteal phase but then drops off “earlier than desired” (a quote from my RE). My question is, could my low progesterone be solely due to high cortisol (which I already know is one of my issues) or could it be caused by insufficient egg quality/premature ovarian failure? Is there any way to know for sure? Can the two be related? Any other advice on how to increase egg quality would be greatly appreciated! Carrie-Ann: Thank you a million times over for all that you do for this world. 12 months ago I did the big 5 labs and in the last 12 months I have done the 21 detox, CBO protocol with finisher and citrocidal drops, intestinal cleanse, heavy metal detox, 7 day detox, another 3 weeks of citrocidal drops (as symptoms hadn't cleared) and I continue to take your DNS, DFVB, magnesium, zinc, probiotic, vitamin C and D, fish and fish oil daily. I am IHP level 2 certified and also I have been a chiropractor for the last 20 years. I've lived a natural healthy lifestyle for the last 15-20 years. After having my first baby 10 years ago I developed psoriasis and now also have high grade cervical dysplasia. Since starting your protocols I've had some great things change. My two fungal toenails are almost all grown out normal and I've had 2 plantar warts on the soles of my feet for years and they are both gone. I'm thrilled about both these changes as it really lets me know things are improving internally. Although I have seen no change in my psoriasis and I still have high grade cervical dysplasia (confirmed 2 weeks ago with biopsy and colposcopy). So finally to my question, what more can I do? I have no other symptoms. Digestion is great, I sleep well, my stress levels are low and I love my life. Lilly:  Hi doctor Cabral, After you talked about your experience with a CGM, I started wearing one and am learning so much about my diet. Thank you for that great tip! I've noticed that my sugar drops extremely low a few times a night and I usually wake up when that happens. I think I know what's causing it: I eat a very early dinner and fast until breakfast. And I know that in order to prevent the nighttime dips, it would be good to eat something before sleep, but I really don't want to break my (clean) fast. Is there anything you could recommend to prevent the nighttime hypoglycemia, without using food? Thanks so much! Lilly Richard: Hello Dr. Cabral, First off I want to say thank you for all that you do. Your passion for helping people is truly remarkable and it is much appreciated! My question is regarding the use of iodine with autoimmune diseases, particularly Hashimotos. I have done a lot of research on this and listened to some of the top autoimmune specialists and most of them seem to agree that taking iodine, whether from foods or supplements, can do more harm than good. Their argument is that an autoimmune condition is basically and overactive immune system and Iodine can also increase the activity of the immune system, which in turn increases the autoimmunity. They claim there are numerous research papers in scientific literature that shows when Hashimotos patients are given iodine, their autoimmune condition can flare up. I would love to hear you thoughts on this and whether or not you recommend iodine for your patients that have Hashimotos. Thank you so much!!

    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:  Leanne: Hi Dr Cabral, I have a question regarding FASD, Foetal alcohol spectrum disorder. What advice can you give for a 9yr old boy affected by FASD? Symptoms are vast but include sleep issues, mood and behavioral problems, learning difficulties, ADD type behaviors although we've had an assessment for autism and add and there was no diagnosis given. Any input you have will be gratefully received! Thanks. Josh: Hey I have been having an issue with an ingrown toenail. I've had a round of antibiotics and a podiatrist trimmed the nail and didn't do the full procedure. Going back for a checkup on Sept 21. I think the nail is getting infected again, I've been soaking it in epson salt and treating it with neosporin. I've just recently learned of your podcast and was wondering what could I treat my toe with instead of neosporin, didn't realize that it was an antibiotic. Thanks! Tammi: Dr Cabral, Thank you for all the information you provide on your show. I have been listening to your show for quite some time and often though man this guy discusses mold lot. I realize that mold can be a huge issue but coming from the West Coast with our dry heat there's never really an issue. I also have lived in Japan but we had dehumidifiers in each room so still mold and mildew were never an issue. Fast forward to a few weeks ago (the beginning of August) my husband, our 13 month old and I moved to Boston. Now I'm blown away and get that mold is a crazy real thing here, that I just don't know how to manage. For example, I bought a watermelon less than a week later when my husband went to cut it there was mold underneath the watermelon. Our bathroom is constantly mildewy despite the dehumidifier being right outside the door. Our water bottles need to be scrubbed weekly even if they only contain water… I have asked several people we have met about the humidity, how they manage it in there homes and I really just don't get any response other than yea it's an issue. Could you please explain to someone who just does not know how to manage the humidity here, what do I need to be doing to manage it and to keep our family safe? Thank you Feeling ridiculous and lost Chad: Hello Dr. Cabral, love everything you do. For the past 6 months I have been miserable in my own home with near crippling allergies. When I wake up in the morning my eyes are swollen and itchy, I sneeze about 20 times and my head feels like it's underwater. The worst part is that my sinuses are swollen shut so breathing my nose is next to impossible. I'm almost positive the allergen is in my house ie. mold, dust mites, or some other indoor allergen. What would your advice be for the first step to solving this so that I can get my life back to normal. Thank you very much, Chad Samantha: Hi Dr Cabral, After running my big 5 labs it was recommended I stick to a low oxalate diet. I have read this will help with kidney stones although I haven't had any as of yet, I'm 43, but my question is if it has any connection to help with tonsil stones? I am currently starting the CBO protocol with my mom and hoping it will cure the chronic tonsil stones but if it hasn't I'm hoping to find another answer. I have listened to all previous podcasts on tonsil stones and have followed all advice regarding gargles etc BUT maybe the CBO will get me there as I know it's a biggie. I just wonder if eating low oxalate could help as well?? Thank you so much Dr Cabral. You truly are amazing. June: Hello, I have been a long timer follower, dedicated to the detox protocol and beyond. With all the podcasts available and the search engine supplied, i am unable to find a podcast that would support my dilemma. My son who has a two year old is suffering from excema and has been prescribed multiple doses of steroids “GULP” (against my counsel) is now reaching out to me for help. What podcast would be best to send to him regarding this issue. As much as I try, I cannot find out the 100's of podcasts one that speaks to this directly.

    It's funny that when I talk with people, aerobic-based “cardio” (running biking, etc.) is just one of those things that most people love to hate…   I hear all the time that “it's boring, it's a waste of time, it's catabolic, HIIT is much better…”   You can insert your own insult for cardio as well (I know I have!), but with every passing year, I find more and more research pointing not to the body transformation benefits of cardiovascular exercise, but rather the health, mind, mood, and longevity results…   Today, I'd like to share with you a new stress-reducing neurotransmitter we can make ourselves every time we do aerobic cardio - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought! - - -   Show Notes & Resources: http://StephenCabral.com/2085 - - - 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 At-Home Lab Tests: > Complete Minerals & Metals Test (Test for mineral imbalances & heavy metal toxicity) - - - > Complete Candida, Metabolic & Vitamins Test (Test for 75 biomarkers including yeast & bacterial gut overgrowth, as well as vitamin levels) - - - > Complete Stress, Mood & Metabolism Test (Discover your complete thyroid, adrenal, hormone, vitamin D & insulin levels) - - - > Complete Stress, Sleep & Hormones Test (Run your adrenal & hormone levels) - - - > Complete Food Sensitivity Test (Find out your hidden food sensitivities) - - - > Complete Omega-3 & Inflammation Test (Discover your levels of inflammation related to your omega-6 to omega-3 levels)

    By now we all know the immune & metabolic benefits of taking vitamin D3 on a daily basis if we're not maintaining a tan…   However, did you know that you could be absorbing more than double the vitamin D each day by making minor changes as to when you take your daily D3?   Plus, there are potential downsides to supplementing with Vitamin D3 if done incorrectly, which is why I want to help you easily navigate away from those side effects and instead enjoy all the immune, metabolic, blood sugar, hormones, and many other benefits of using Vitamin D3 safely…   So for all the details tune into today's #CabralConcept 2083 for the missing cofactors for absorbing vitamin D3 - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments! - - -   Show Notes & Resources: http://StephenCabral.com/2083 - - - 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 At-Home Lab Tests: > Complete Minerals & Metals Test (Test for mineral imbalances & heavy metal toxicity) - - - > Complete Candida, Metabolic & Vitamins Test (Test for 75 biomarkers including yeast & bacterial gut overgrowth, as well as vitamin levels) - - - > Complete Stress, Mood & Metabolism Test (Discover your complete thyroid, adrenal, hormone, vitamin D & insulin levels) - - - > Complete Stress, Sleep & Hormones Test (Run your adrenal & hormone levels) - - - > Complete Food Sensitivity Test (Find out your hidden food sensitivities) - - - > Complete Omega-3 & Inflammation Test (Discover your levels of inflammation related to your omega-6 to omega-3 levels)

    2081: Ganglion Cyst, Vitamin D Lamp, Bacterial Vaginosis, Calming Supplements, Chilblains, No Period (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:  Cassandra: Hi Dr. Cabral, Since about December I've noticed a ganglion cyst on my wrist. It goes away occasionally but eventually comes back. I asked a physician about it and they said it could be drained but still could come back eventually. The only other solution they suggested is to remove it surgically but only as a last resort if it becomes very painful. Do you know of any natural ways to get rid of this. It's not super painful in daily life but quite uncomfortable if I'm holding a plank for example.  Thanks! Karen: Hi Dr. Cabral! I remember you discussing the Sperti lamp for vitamin D absorption and was wondering if you had been able to test out the lamp? If so, what was your consensus? Super-interested in hearing your thoughts! Alyssa: Hi Dr Cabral! I have bacterial vaginosis on and off for months on end.. i really don't want to have to take antibiotics as I have a liver and GI disease and autoimmune issues I'm working through with nutrition and holistic modalities. I know antibiotics will really set me back… I know you can't prescribe, just wondering, do you have any natural suggestions to remedy BV? Thank you immensely! Angele: Hello, I am looking for a natural supplement to keep me calm. I become very nervous when I have to see the doctor and cause my BP to go extremely high.Thanks in advance. Stacey: Hi Dr Cabral! My name is Stacey, I'm 29 and an Australian listener. We have just had our winter and during that time I noticed the ends of my toes were getting really itchy, red and swollen, it was such an uncomfortable feeling. I was told I have chillblains and that there isn't really a cure then to just keep your feet warm at all times. I must say that has helped so much. But I wonder if this is a response to something else? I have never had this issue before I tried to search up the issue on your podcasts but couldn't find any resources. Thanks so much for your help. Stacey Sarah: Hi! Love your podcast! I'd love for you to review the book called “No period, now what” by Lisa Sanflippo. I know it's very niche but I also know that you're all about granularity rather than surface level. I'm sure you have listeners that would be interested or know others that are going through it. I think a review will be very valuable for us all and to strengthen your knowledge on this area too :) I hope you consider it!
