IBS, crohns, colitis, SIBO, diarrhea and constipation are all survival responses of the body. Your body is creating these symptoms as a way of adapting to the unconscious stress that you have experienced. You can try all the supplements, diet changes and detoxes to get rid of it, but those are only short-term solutions. If you want to get rid of these for good, you have to get to the root cause. In today's episode, I will discuss the subconscious root cause of symptoms that are connected to common digestive complaints of the intestinal system.  Free Healing Guide: Why Can't I Heal?

Today, I am blessed to have here with me Megan Hall. She received her BS in Exercise Biology and MS in Nutritional Biology at UC Davis where her research focused on the effects of low carbohydrate and ketogenic diets on longevity and health span in mice. This episode originally aired in July 2021. She currently works as Scientific Director at Nourish Balance Thrive, an online health coaching company helping people achieve optimal health and peak performance. In her free time Megan enjoys reading, strength training, and hiking in the Colorado mountains. In this episode, Megan opens up the show by explaining why she wanted to learn more about nutritional and lifestyle interventions for optimal health. Even if you are making the necessary lifestyle changes, you can still be facing health issues. Megan explains why you may want to consider the gut as the reason you are having problems. Plus, Megan talks about how both physical and emotional stress can impact our gut health, and she gives tips on avoiding stress during mealtime. Tune in as we chat about overcoming acid reflux, the impact keto and fasting have on gut health, and whether or not you should give up drinking coffee.

She wanted to know more about how lifestyle and nutrition play a role in chronic diseases. Plus, Megan was becoming frustrated with conventional medical school education. Instead of pharmaceutical education, Megan wanted to learn more about helping people implement impactful nutritional and lifestyle interventions. Now, Megan works at Nourish Balance Thrive. She helps people achieve optimal health and performance.  [06:15] You Made Necessary Lifestyle Changes But Something Is Still Wrong Megan will help people who already have changed their diets, and their sleep is on point. However, there are still health issues. In this case, Megan says something is going on in the gut. Intestinal permeability or dysbiosis could be causing health issues. A stool test and targeted supplementation can fix the gut problem. There isn't a perfect stool test, unfortunately. [09:40] Mental Emotional Stress Impacts Not Just Our Digestive Health, But Also Our Overall Health There are different ways that stress can impact the gut. Both physical and emotional stress can have consequences. The elevation of stress hormones can cause direct inflammation and lead to further gut-derived inflammation. Stress hormones can potentially even lead to food intolerance if gut permeability is involved. Also, stress can directly impact digestion and nutrient absorption. Our bodies are not designed to digest food while we are under stress. Plus, stress can lead to making poor food choices. Stress can also increase motility and fluid reabsorption in the gut. Take deep breaths before eating – it will bring your body back into the parasympathetic state. [16:05] Eating Before Bed: It Can Affect Digestion, Sleep, And Your Circadian Rhythm  The body expects food to come during the day. Eating inherently increases our energy output and our body temperature. A drop in body temperature is one of the biggest signs or signals for our bodies to go to sleep. If you're eating before bed, you're not able to cool your body temperature down to increase melatonin. Sleep should be a time of rest and repair. If we are digesting while sleeping, it can cause issues. Plus, our gut microbes have their own circadian rhythms. [19:45] Megan Reveals Tips For Overcoming Acid Reflux   Avoid really large meals. Some people have specific food triggers that cause acid reflux. Don't eat close to bedtime. If you're doing everything right, look at what's going on at the level of the gut to see if there's small intestinal dysbiosis. [21:35] How Ketosis Can Impact Your Gut Health It makes sense from an evolutionary lens that our guts evolved to have this metabolic flexibility to adapt to different food resources available at a given time. There is some recent evidence in animals that butyrate may help enhance sleep. Butyrate also seems to have some anti-inflammatory effects both locally in the gut and then also outside of the gut. [25:00] The Importance of Rotating Foods For Gut Diversity When gut cells use butyrate as a fuel, it's actually converted to ketone bodies. Ketones may help improve gut function and also be used as an alternative fuel source for the gut. Increase gut diversity by rotating which foods you eat. Plus, going in and out of ketosis will also help with gut diversity.   [27:25] The Multiple Benefits That Fasting Has On Your Gut Health Longer-term fasting may improve gut barrier function. Improved gut barrier function is associated with reduced relative bacterial abundance. Intermittent fasting or time-restricted eating in your day-to-day life is a good thing. Plus, fasting can give your gut a rest. Strategic fasting is a helpful tool for your toolbox. [38:05] The Problems With Artificial Sweeteners & Which Ones You Should Avoid Monk fruit and stevia are some of the better artificial sweeteners. Whereas aspartame and sucralose are some of the worst. People who consume artificial sweeteners may have higher levels of insulin resistance. Long-term studies in humans looking at artificial sweetener intake that are controlled don't exist. There are a lot of questions that still need to be answered. Artificial sweeteners can potentially impact energy balance. [43:50] How The Carnivore Diet Can Help Heal Your Gut Nutrient-dense whole foods are great for your gut. What diet works for you today may not be helpful for you down the road. Antinutrients in plants can be problematic. They can inhibit nutrient absorption. Some antinutrients will increase intestinal permeability. [48:50] Should You Give Up Coffee For Your Gut Health? Polyphenols in coffee may have a positive effect on the gut microbial ecosystem. However, coffee can be inflammatory. People do not want to give up their coffee. Adding liquid saturated fats to coffee can be making your gut health worse. It can cause significant gut inflammation. If you're having joint pain, brain fog, or an inability to focus, then coffee could be the issue. We need to appreciate that coffee can have both a positive and a negative effect on our gut health.

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…   Luis: Hi Dr. Cabral, I was wondering what your thoughts are on DMSO and MMS (Miracle Mineral Supplement), particularly when it comes to taking them for the elimination of things like SIBO, for example, but also for any other purpose? Thanks   Melissa: What is the safest water system for an inground pool ?   Patrick: Hey doc hope all is well. Huge fan here. I know you did allot of podcasts on proteolytic enzymes but I'm not sure if you mentioned if it would be good to take for acne. I believe you say acne is a result of dirty blood and this enzyme cleans blood so thought this might work good. Thank you for everything you do   Lara: Hi, dr. Cabral :) I'm finally on my first FM detox, day 4 & I already feel a bit better, can't wait to see the results after 21 days! And then straight into CBO.. and CBO finisher afterwards.. I wanted to ask when during CBO would be a good time to start with the Heavy Metal Detox, Mold protocol and Ultimate Sleep Help Protocol? Should I wait until the end of CBO or even the Finisher? And when would you recommend my next detox then..? It wouldn't have to be another 21 days, right? After all these protocols my body should be much less toxic? vI would also like to ask if you could do an episode about how to properly brew different teas to get the most benefits.. I'm mostly interested in herbal teas and ginger tea, but I think information about all teas would be beneficial.. Thank you   Tonya: Hello Dr Cabral! I have 2 quick questions for you please and thank you! 1. What are the long term effects of donating plasma? 2. Is it okay for people to use exlax every day?

Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows! This is where we answer our community's wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track! Check out today's questions:    Marie: Hi Dr. Cabral. Just want to start by saying thank you for offering the lab services/coaching. Brief history – I was chronically undereating (unknowingly) and hitting the gym 5-6x a week. Exhaustion set in late 2019 but I attributed it to work stress. When NYC went into lockdown in early 2020, I thought ‘great! A 2-week vacation!' But as the weeks piled on so did the pounds. When losing the weight by cutting calories and increasing workouts didn't work, I joined a nutrition coaching service which focuses on fueling your body not starving it. After a year and a half, I was still struggling to lose, and they recommended bloodwork. I had had the full thyroid panel in the middle of the 18 months and the numbers were fine, so I ran the equilife hormone test and found out I have low prog   Jackie: My question is this. Is the CBO protocol good to disrupt established and tough biofilms? Or is this protocol better for someone who would be using this protocol as a first round against SIBO? Has it ever been used with success on SIBO patients who had tough biofilms to break down? Finally, is there a reason why EDTA is not included in the biofilm buster formula?   Anonymous: Hi. I am so grateful to you and your team for all the information you share. You are truly changing so many people's lives for the better! I had a question about l-glutamine. I have MCAS and i have been taking l glutamine to seal my gut and thus calm down my immune system. However, it has given me anxiety, depression and fatigue. Is this a glutamate issue? What can do to prevent the side effects? Also, I was wondering how long it took for you to resolve your food sensitivities and be able to have lectins again?   Richard: Hello Dr. Cabral, I know that you recommend 7-9 cups of fruits & veggies per day, with more coming from veggies. I get about 6 cups of fruits & 3-4 cups of veggies on a good day, sometimes even less. The problem is that I'm a vata dosha & veggies aren't very conducive for gaining or even maintaining weight. Veggies are filling but a very low calorie food. If I eat 5-6 cups of veggies per day then I don't have the appetite to eat other higher calorie foods that will help me increase weight. It gets even hard when I'm trying to build muscle. Is it possible that vatas need less veggies than other doshas or is that just wishful thinking? If not then do you have any suggestions for gaining/maintaining weight while getting my 5-6 cups of veggies? Thank you, really appreciate you & all you do!   Anonymous: Hello, Dr. Cabral, my question is regarding a case of painless ulcerative colitis. When I was first diagnosed with this "disease" I was experiencing all of the standard symptoms: urgency, bloody stool, fatigue etc. My initial flare was brought under control & has remained dormant since. Recently, however, I completed a few of your labs including the Gut Bacteria & Parasite Test. It revealed very high inflammatory markers. I found this troubling since I wasn't showing any symptoms. Fast forward a few months, I completed the CBO protocol & went in for a colonoscopy. My doctor said that I had severe inflammation and needed to go on a biologic. I'm distraught, as I'm still symptom free. My question: How will I know if I am truly well if I can have severe inflammation and no symptoms? What now?   Pamela: I have been suffering from reynauds for years and I'm done . Can you tell me what best to do?? Supplements etc.     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 and Resources: StephenCabral.com/2528 - - - Get a FREE Copy of Dr. Cabral's Book: The Rain Barrel Effect - - - Join the Community & Get Your Questions Answered: 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 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) - - - Get Your Question Answered On An Upcoming HouseCall: StephenCabral.com/askcabral - - - Would You Take 30 Seconds To Rate & Review The Cabral Concept?

And I hope you'll help me welcome Kate to the podcast.   (03:07): I'm so excited to be here. Thanks for having me. So   (03:09): I always like to start with people talking about why they do what they do and you have some unique certifications and experience. You've been in the health and fitness industry for over 25 years and I'm wondering what drew you to get the certifications and trainings that you've acquired and what makes you so passionate about helping women at midlife boost their metabolism.   (03:35): ? Well, it's a great question and I, I think the driver for most of us is always, we have our own experience that leads us down a path that we try to look at all the, the, the information that is readily available to us. Maybe it's through the medical space or maybe it's just what nutrition is offered in the, the standard American diet. And you find that that isn't working for you. And so you start going down different paths. And so for me, yes, I've been in this space for 25 years. I've always had an interest in people. I actually have degrees in psychology and exercise physiology and how to improve either performance and your experience here on life and so forth. And I've certainly had plenty of experiences in my life where I thought I was doing the healthiest things for myself because it's kind of what I was taught, especially in down the path of, you know, let's get fit and healthy.   (04:28): So maybe go down the eat less, work out more. And did that kind of approach a good bit to my twenties and thirties and then all of a sudden that when I was about to hit 40, it's didn't seem to be working. And the the tighter and more stricter I became, the more walls I seemed to be hitting. And you know, I kind of was thinking, well that must be just what happens in your forties. That's what everyone keeps saying. You hit this wall. And then I started to learn about metabolic health on a a different spectrum and looking through health with a different lens. And until we kind of change the lens of how we're seeing things, we're gonna keep going down the path I believe. So we have to kind of take a different perspective. And the perspective I learned was based on the work of Dr.   (05:11): Broda Barnes and Dr. Ray Pete. And it's essentially you're defining health as how well your metabolic rate is working. And if we understand that metabolism is basically the sum of all chemical process in your body or, and or how well your body is taking food and producing energy. And so how can we measure that is the question. And the way I would measure it is your heat production because heat would be a product of how well your body's producing energy, your temperature. So temperature and pulse would be ways to monitor how well your metabolism is working. And then if we think about it as it's the sum of every metabolic process, well then that would be how well you are digesting. How's your cycle? Do you have PMs or do you have a lot of menopausal issues? If you're at that stage in your life, how are you sleeping?   (05:58): How's your skin and hair? We know that when you are producing energy at a good rate and you're able to use food and then make energy for yourself, you'll have plenty to run your body optimally. If something starts to interfere with that, then you're gonna start to become compromised. And then what you tend to see is the opposite. Bad digestion, a lot of PMs issues, you're cold all the time. You might have a really low pulse, you have a lot of sleep issues, brain fog, all of those things start to occur. I stop looking at each symptom independently and because again, when we, when we look at how metabolism works, it kind of is the sum of all those products. So from my perspective, if we, if I could find a way to increase the body's ability to turn fuel food into fuel and produce better energy or more energy for your system, then ultimately what happens is your body just starts to function better without addressing each symptom independently. Mm-Hmm . And so if you can basically like say what, what does that all look like? And so there are certainly a series of things that you can do to help that happen. And it's not just kind of do this or that. It's always finding where the invi the individual at is at the process and working with them within that space and then slowly trying things to again help their body produce energy better or there's more accessible for them in their body and their metabolic health so that things just start working better for themselves.   (07:24): Okay. So let's start a l with a little basic, cuz I know some people are pretty advanced to listen to the podcast. They're, they, they're all about knowing about their metabolism. But what is your metabolism and why is this an issue as people age? I love how you say stop blaming aging for your slow metabolism, but let's break it down. What is your metabolism to begin with and why is it a problem for women as they age?   (07:49): Yeah, that's a great question and you can kind of define it a few different ways. One would be, like I said, it's the sum of every metabolic process in your body. So everything your body is doing takes energy. And so metabolism is essentially how your body turns food into fuel. And it essentially goes through a process. So we can look at it down at the cell level cuz all your cells are basically producing energy in their mitochondria primarily so that, that you have energy to do what you need to do, but you also need energy to run everything in your body. In fact, most of the energy that your body produces is used to run your body. We refer that as the basal metabolic rate. So 60 to 70% of the energy you produce is just utilized to do your systems, meaning digest food to keep your muscle and your, your your, your bones and have your nervous system working and all these things require fuel.   (08:43): And if at some point you start to run at a deficit, then your body always goes through this adaptation and will actually slow down metabolic function. And we see this when people diet and if they, they diet long enough, what normally happens, well you don't sleep as well, you're not digesting as well. You might start to feel tired or fatigued or you might start to feel wired because now your body's trying to produce energy via the stress response. And then you start to get a little bit jittery or it might even feel good initially because the stress hormones can feel good initially. So we start to see these responses your body's giving you. But if you're all of a sudden like going into your forties and fifties and saying, I still wanna lose weight, but yet you have a series of symptoms occurring, right? Let's just say you have horrible periods or you have all these sleep issues and you're unable to lose weight or you can't hold muscle tissue or you're getting all these brain fog or other issues, then we've gotta work on those symptoms first.   (09:44): Because what I know is that your body isn't providing you enough energy to run your basic functions because either you're too stressed out, you're, you're using it too other ways or it's gone through too many adaptations to slow it down. Cause we always have to remember the number one thing our body is trying to do is keep us alive. It isn't trying to procreate, it isn't trying to really digest your food, it's not trying to do any of those things. It's trying to keep you alive. So it's always in this energy preservation space where if you don't give it enough, it's going to adapt to that. And if you do it long enough, you'll have symptoms and then it'll look like illness and disease and so forth and so on. And so when I look at it say look, we can say well that just happens with age.   (10:26): And I say, well usually what I see is it just happens more time on this planet to stress your system out . And so, and that will come with age, but if we actually treat our body differently and actually provide it with enough fuel, minerals, nutrients, space and time to heal, then we can actually reverse that process and allow the system to do what it needs to do. And so we don't have to use the age factor to say, well this and, and there's just succumb to this is gonna happen cuz I'm getting older. We should know that there are things you can do to kind of fix that or reverse that so that you don't have to say that, that it is a product age. It's just a product of how you're treating your body.   (11:04): Right. I love that. It's so true. It's not age and and you know, it's just coincidental that as we get older, but we're also spending more time on the planet getting our body stressed out and yeah really that is the key factor. It doesn't have anything to do with our age. And you know, if you look around, there are plenty of women who are older who don't have metabolism problems, don't have weight problems, don't have health problems. And so what's the difference is that they're probably managing the various stressors that are insulting their body as they age. You know, another, could you share this quote with me before we started from Dr. Schwartz being about you have to get healthy to lose weight, not lose weight to get healthy. And really that's how I lost over a hundred pounds. People ask me all the time, well how did you do that?   (11:51): Did you starve yourself? Did you, you exercise like crazy? No, I figured out the secrets to hormonal balance, detoxification, mitochondrial function, all the things that you and I both teach about. And then when I fixed that, the weight just came off. So how do you get people to shift their mindset? Women over 40, 50, 60 who are really, I mean we've had drilled into us from the time I was a little kid, I remember having drilled into me, it's less calories and more calories out, right? Cut your calories in, expend your calories. That's how you lose weight. And how do you help people to understand that that's, it's not a numbers game, it's not a math problem.   (12:34): That is a good question and it is a complete mind shift. And even for me it took a lot of unlearning cuz I was brought up in that space and that's, it was dug into me and I and it works until it doesn't work,   (12:46): Right   (12:47): . And that's the problem and that's, and when it does work, you know you can have it work pretty quickly, right? It's also a space, if you just grind it out and you, you know, you're like balls of the walls, you can have it happen but it's not sustainable over the long haul and then, then it's just, and so you're gonna get into trouble eventually and it doesn't work because you're, like I said, your body will go through adaptations and we now know that like exercise is actually not a great, certainly cardiovascular exercise is a great long-term approach for long-term weight loss. Because when you start putting, cuz exercise is a stress on your system, right? You're stressing your system to use fuel faster and if the fuel isn't available, then yes, it'll try to use what's on you, which is body fat. But it also will use a percentage of muscle tissue, connective tissue because those are also regulators.   (13:38): You need to regulate your blood sugar. And so when all those things happen, anytime we put a stress on our system, our body says, hey, at this point in time she has more demands than we have coming in. So okay, we're gonna use some of our other resources, however we're going to slow other things down to adapt to this stressor because again, number one thing your body wants to do is keep you alive and it doesn't want you to burn off all your muscle tissue to try to regulate blood sugar so that you can keep going. So it's always adapting to this response. And in your twenties it kind of, you do it and it can fix itself. It kind of goes okay, you know, she's lost some weight and we, we will kind of try to autoregulate a little bit, maybe a downregulated metabolic rate just a little bit.   (14:22): But then you do it again and again and again and by the time you're in your thirties and forties and you've hit that system, you know, 30 or 40 times it is now downregulated 20 30%. And now it's just so much harder for your system to push through that cycle. And usually at the same time now you have a bunch of symptoms, right? You have, you've had bad periods for 10 or 20 years or now you're having menopausal symptoms or perimenopausal symptoms and they are horrible and that's not normal, I guess it is, is normal cause a lot of people have it, but it doesn't have to be normal. You don't have to go through those if the body is in a better space. And for me I try to address it and get 'em to shift because I want 'em to look at the definition of health differently.   (15:05): Look, health is not just how thin you are and how good you look in, you know, your swimsuit health is a product of, again, it what is your temperature and pulse. If you're 96 degrees and a lot of women are, then that's a problem. You're not producing a lot of heat and that's a factor of metabolic health. So I look at, are you running around 97.8 to 98.6 degrees through the day? You know, is your pulse 40 or is it between 75 and 90 beats? And you know, believe it or not, it's better to have a pulse a little bit higher even though your doctor, you know that when you're running your marathons it's, it's down at 50. But that is an adaptation that occurs to kind of keep up with that activity. And then we wanna look at your digestion again, how your menstrual cycle, how's your libido, what are all these factors doing and what do they need to function?   (15:54): And they need energy, right? You cannot run on thin air. And so, and you also need a lot of nutrition and if you're eating crappy foods and we're not enough, we are going to see dysfunction at some point in time. It's just, it's going to happen. And if you just keep thinking, well I still need to work out more and exercise, it's just a matter of willpower, you are gonna make yourself absolutely crazy and, and then you feel horrible and then your whole life kind of starts to crumble down because you don't have the fuel to keep up with it. And so you know, the next thing you know you're going to your doctor and he is putting you on antidepressants and anxieties, sleep medications, everything. And you know, to kind of alleviate some of these symptoms when in fact look we have to address the underlying problem, which from my perspective is you have core cellular function, you're noting energy. Well wherever that is, align the system and that's what we need to improve.   (16:46): Yeah, and food plays a huge role in this. What you are feeding yourself and this whole concept of calorie restriction and a lot of diets are poor quality calories. I know you have a free guide that you're gonna offer everyone, we're gonna have the link in the show notes, but you also cover your top 13 metabolic foods in there. Could you just mention maybe three of your favorites that people might consider adding to their diet? That would be something to help with their me metabolic rate.   (17:15): Yes. And again, we, from my perspective, I come from the context of always improving cellular function. Now I always, I do have foods I suggest, but all those foods might not work for everybody depending on where they are in their healing cycle. And so, mm-hmm , I am a huge proponent of carbohydrates but the right carbohydrates because carbohydrates are your best source of energy to, for yourself, your cells prefer carbohydrates to run. Now a lot of people, especially women in their forties and fifties say, I eat carbs and I just blow up and then I don't do well with 'em so forth and so on. But if that's the case, then we have to find out, well what is going on in your system, right? Why are you not using those properly and can that be addressed and can that be fixed? Because if your body's utilizing other resources, fats or proteins as fuel, which it can, your body's awesome and it can use other resources, in my opinion, it's not the ideal source of fuel.   (18:12): Your body's actually function best utilizing carbohydrates. And so we wanna get the body to use those primarily. And the ones I like are more like fruits and roots, high nutrient rich carbohydrates that your body can help assimilate and there's tons of minerals and nutrition from 'em. And so I like actually a lot of simple carbohydrates cuz it's easier for your body to break these down. I definitely come from a space where we wanna give your body foods that are not super challenging to break down because what I see when someone's in dysfunction, 95% of those people have poor GI function. If you have poor GI function, again, it's another system of your body that requires energy to function. If that's not working and we give it really, really hard to digest foods, you're going to have problems. They're not gonna break 'em down properly, they're not gonna get what they need. Maybe they're filled with nutrition, but if your body doesn't have the fuel to break that system down or that food down, then you're just gonna poop it out. So I love fruits and roots, you know, like potatoes. Those are great sources of energy in my opinion. Just on the caveat. Okay. I never, okay,   (19:17): , hold on, I'm gonna, you're slaying a few sacred cows here so let's, I wanna dig into this a little deeper cuz some people are like, what? Eat carbs and lose weight. Wait, I, I like what she's saying but, so you're saying eat fruits and roots and fruits and roots have been fairly vilified Yep. By most people. And then you're talking about things that are easy to digest versus hard to digest. So can you break be more specific? What are you saying is hard to digest that people can't get nutrients out of? And what are you saying is easy and then also break down, why are you a proponent of fruits and roots for helping metabolic rate?   (19:55): Yeah. Oh that's a good question. Again, if we come from a place of h how, when you look at optimal metabolism, the fuel source that we are using is carbohydrates. Carbohydrates will run through the system much quicker than fats and to be utilized as energy. Yes, fats will contain more energy, but when carbs are being used, they actually go through the system in a quicker space. And so we want energy that's being used quickly. And so carbs are gonna be your most, primarily the best source of fuel. Now as you age, the body can have issues digesting carbohydrates and it's normally because that system is in a chronic stress state and they're starting to run other systems that are kind of regulating them at that time. But if we can get 'em out of the stress state and get them to utilizing carbohydrates better, then we'll bring those stress hormones down and their body will start to auto-regulate.   (20:45): I like fruits and roots because they're, they're high nutrient rich and if they're prepared properly, they don't tax your GI system as much as other foods like breads or grains or pastas or even legumes. Nuts and seeds of course. And even a lot of raw green vegetables, which I know is gonna be very controversial. But again, if you eat a raw salad which doesn't have a lot of fuel in it, it might have a lot of nutrition, but our body's gonna have a challenging time breaking that food down. And because I'm trying to give it fuel to run and I know when your body is under a lot of chronic stress, the GI system is the one of the systems that gets really affected. In fact, the GI system works best in that parasympathetic state. And if somebody's in a stressed sympathetic state all the time, the GI system just doesn't work properly.   (21:37): And so if I give it a ton of food and, and I try to push it through the GI and it's hard to digest, guess what? You're gonna see that food in your stool the next day. We're not gonna be able to break it down . And so, so true really irritating to the GI system and we need to give it foods that are not gonna be irritating. So again, I'm certainly not suggesting to everybody go out and they eat a huge bowl of potatoes or fruit by itself. Those foods are not, they shouldn't be consumed. I always balance all my, my carbohydrates with protein and some fat so that it does help go into the system a little bit slower and it can help regulate your blood sugar a little bit better. But we still don't want a tax, right? Because your GI system is the entry way for all your nutrition and energy.   (22:26): And if it's in dysfunction, if you're having bloating and, and SIBO and leaky gut and all of these things that are maybe not allowing your body to digest food properly, then even if you're eating the best of diets and the most nutritious of diets, if you can't break that food down, who cares? Doesn't matter. It's just gonna be pooped out, it's gonna irritate your gi, it's gonna make you constipated, whatever, doesn't matter. And so, but if we actually give it some stuff that's easier, then all of a sudden your body's okay, we don't have to work so hard so we can kind of operate, you know, 70% cuz you're not really taxing us so much and we'll actually give you the fuel that you need so that your body can have fuel to run. It is a mind shift, right? Because you have to know, you have to increase your body's ability to utilize energy and that means you've gotta teach it to utilize more calories.   (23:18): You've gotta teach it to actually know that calories are available to coming in. Cuz if not, it always is going to adapt to, to it. Your body does not care if you have an extra a hundred pounds on you and it's like, oh look I got a ton of extra weight on me. We'll just use that. It doesn't work that way. Your body will still adapt to a slow metabolism with extra weight on you. And so you have to increase overall basal metabolic rate so it, it starts utilizing that energy better. If not, you're gonna be eating less and less and less and feeling crappier and crappier and crappier and, and, and you can't live that that, right? As soon as something comes or happens, you just binge and eat everything so your body doesn't go into, you know, complete craziness, right? And then you go, you yo-yo yourself all the way, you know, into gaining another 20, 30 pound you're miserable.   (24:06): I remember seeing the study on the biggest loser contestants Yep. Right? Showing that how their metabolic rate slowed when they lost the weight on the show, but then it went even lower after and invariably they all gained the weight back within a couple of years. And I don't know what it's gonna take for us women to really get that out of, out of our heads about the, the calories and minus calories out myth. But I, I think you, you are really making some great points. I do wanna jump to another topic cuz you have such varied experience and certification and just the way you envision a person's health. You talk about posture in addition to wellbeing being about diet, stress, exercise, sleep, digestion, hormones, mindset, lifestyle. You also mentioned posture. Can you talk a little bit about that? Cuz that's not something that most people I think are aware affects their metabolism?   (25:03): Well I think we can just go into essential structure and again, if you're somebody that is hunched over and you can just see this from kind of today's society and everybody's looking at their phone or they're on their computer, right? So they're all just kind of hunched over and kind of in this kind of kyphotic state all day long. Well again, how does our GI system work and how does all of our systems work when we're kind of just compressing it all day long? So, you know, I always, I I get people in front of me and they, they're coming in and they're hunched over head forward. They got kind of forward head posture, shoulders are rolled, hips are starting to get tucked and I show them this posture a little bit exaggerated. I'm like, well this is your future. This is how you're going to function.   (25:46): And again, when our body starts to kind of maintain these structures and aren't ideal for it, the brain gets quite used to that and then it starts to go, well we don't actually need to stand up. So it starts to lose function and it starts to just stay. And, and I don't know if you've ever seen like people that aren't extreme, right? They're like completely leaned over and they can't like even stand up any longer and you're like, how does that even happen? Well it doesn't happen in a month or a year, it happens over decades in time without correction. But what I can say to you is if you were in the compromised position all day and you're leaned over and you're leaned over, that is absolutely gonna affect how well your GI system is functioning. And again, if we know that, that the GI is the entryway from everything from an outside world into your body and that's being compressed and compromised, then we can suspect that somewhere along the lines your body's gonna have some issues with digestion somewhere. Because in that compromise and compressed position. So obviously it's one of, I think many pieces of the puzzle to try to get somebody healthier. Certainly the food and everything else is a, a big part, but working on your backside and maintaining and learning how to sit upright and stand upright and look forward and you know, not looking to your phone all the time is certainly yeah. A big part of trying to improve your   (27:05): Health. Yeah, you know, this first came to my attention really, there was this brilliant chiropractor in Atlanta when I was working there and you know, he was talking about the structural integrity and how it puts when you don't have it, lack of structural integrity puts torque on the nerves, particularly like you say the digestive system, the autonomic nerve parasympathetic nervous system and then they stop functioning optimally and it affects digestion and hormone balance and everything else. But I just wanted to highlight that for everyone because you know, I think everything relates to hormones cause it does and posture relates to hormones, relates to metabolism along with what you're eating and your exercise. I think we're really trained to believe that it's, again, only about diet and exercise. I think most people are getting the stress piece. What are some of your top tips for women over 40 to really get a reign on how stress is affecting their health or mitigate the effects?   (28:03): Well I think a good thing to monitor is certainly your sleep. If you're finding that you are not sleeping well, then that's a sign that your system is under fueled to me. I mean, sleep is a, a high metabolic function. Like, you know, young children think about what young children know, they can sleep 10 to 12, 12 hours, they can sleep anywhere and they just fall asleep in our deep sleep . And so it's a high metabolic function and as we age, obviously sleeps becomes more challenging and we don't sleep as deep and we don't sleep as long when you wake up and so forth. So how well your sleeping is certainly a sign that if you're sleeping poorly, that things aren't going in the right direction. Some easy tips are like go out and get morning sun. Your body likes the sun, your circadian rhythm likes the sun.   (28:46): So getting sun into your eyes in the morning or at least getting out through the day and getting sun on you is a, a good way for your body to sleep better. Certainly making sure you're eating enough through the day and making sure you're eating balanced meals through the day. One of the things I like to address with people is regulating their blood sugar. If your blood sugar is all over the place, it's going to elicit stress responses all through the day because your blood sugar is what basically keeps you alive. If, if you, there's not enough fuel in there and all of a sudden there isn't any, you die. So there's a, you know, a regulatory system if you're starting, if your blood sugar gets too low, if you start to go hypoglycemic, your body's gonna send out a stress response. Your stress hormones, adrenaline, cortisol, glucagon are all gonna elevate to try and either break down tissue or release storaged sugar to regulate you.   (29:34): And if that's happening all day long because you're not eating or you are eating the wrong foods, then you're keeping yourself in the stress response all day. And so we have to get yourself and that's not gonna make you feel relaxed and it's certainly not gonna make you sleep. Well, making sure, and a great way to do that is, you know, having balanced meals throughout the day. So whether you're eating three meals a day or six meals a day, find a frequency of meals, it feels good to you. If you're eating a meal and you're like, I'm gonna eat three, but you're hungry after two or three hours and you probably need a snack in between your meals, we want you to feel satiated during the day. We, I don't want you to feel hungry, especially if you're trying to fix things. And what we have to understand is your body actually needs to heal and it needs to fix metabolic functions then that's a different space than you trying to lose weight in my opinion.   (30:27): Sometimes you have to kind of fix the foundation first to get the body like so, so the body can lose weight a little bit healthily versus just trying to stress the weight off of you, which most of us have been doing most of our lives. So it's kind of, you know, people refer to it as reverse dieting where you start to slowly eat more food so your body get used to having more fu fuel available to you. I just say it's improving metabolic function cuz we monitor your metabolic processes to see how well you're improving. There's a lot of different things. So again, I would say getting light, eating balanced meals throughout the day is important. And then of course, adding some of the foods, the, I would suggest, and again, those could be fruits and roots and maybe avoiding some of these hard to digest foods like nuts scenes, legumes and raw feed greens, , which I knew will be controversial. And again, I'm not saying these are bad foods, I'm just saying if you have some GI dysfunction and you need improve metabolic function, they might be better to limit them or even avoid them for a while while you improve those things and then you can slowly add them back in mm-hmm. into something you wanna do.   (31:32): Okay. Those are great tips. You mentioned something in there, reverse dieting, but I'm not entirely sure what you mean by that. Could you clarify?   (31:39): Reverse dieting is a term that's being kind of utilized. It seems right now where it's dieting as we think of it's eating less and, you know, and slowly eating less to lose body fat. Reverse dieting is actually teaching your body to eat more and so that your body adapts to a space where now it's getting more comfortable eating, you know, 2000 calories versus the 1200 calories. And so it's a process that you would take someone through, whereas, you know, maybe if you're, if someone's coming to me and they're eating 12 to 1400 calories and they have a bunch of symptoms, I'm like, well, we're not gonna heal on that. It's not enough fuel. I actually, my clients eating anywhere from 1900 to 2,400 calories before we would actually start to initiate some sort of deficit to try to initiate weight loss or add some activity or something in.   (32:27): So I want their bodies to be primed. I want them to have tons. I I really wanna teach people to eat as much food as they possibly can to, to maintain good metabolic function. And yes, with some people initially that might result in some actual weight gain and either a, they might need it or their body just has to go through a a time where it's saying, Hey, you know, you've been starving me for the last three decades, , it's gonna take a little time for me to adapt to this new energy increase and it couldn't come with a little bit of weight gain, but we try to minimize that. But what I look for versus just what's on the scale, I'm gonna look for well how your, well your clothes fit. Because certainly if I can get you enough fuel, you're gonna have better anabolic function, so you'll be able to maintain muscle, you'll be able to increase muscle faster.   (33:15): And again, it's something that happens in women in their forties and fifties, sixties is they have a harder time maintaining muscle mass and muscle is incredibly important as we age, we know that women who have the most muscle mass will be most healthiest or have the least amount of bone breakdowns and so forth. So we wanna create an environment, their body that is able to produce and maintain muscle. If the body's constantly stressed because you're going down these stress pathways, it is gonna have an incredibly hard time doing that. You'll end up just losing more muscle mass. And that is not something do as you age.   (33:49): Right. Thank you for explaining that. I love that term and it, it really reminds me of Dean Ornish with his eat more, way less, you know, most of us are eating poor quality, wrong macronutrient and micronutrient not dense foods. And so really this concept that you do need to eat more, but also a better macronutrient and micronutrient profile, I think is really huge for women. And, and if you're listening, I hope you really hear what Kate is saying because it's key to boosting your metabolism. Your metabolism is not decreased direct because of your age. So just stop blaming it on your age. You've got to really take a hard close look at the stressors that are impacting your health that we've mentioned throughout this episode. Hormones being one of them. I loved how you tied in the whole cortisol stress cycle to digestion and what that's gonna do overall. So I think this has been really valuable for everyone. Thank you so much for joining us, Kate. You have this free guide, understanding Metabolism and your Top 13 me Metabolic Foods for everyone to download. We're gonna have a link in the show notes. They can also check out your book, how to Heal Your Metabolism, stop Blaming Aging For Your Slowing Metabolism. If you wanna, what would you like to tell them about these resources and where else people can find you and get more information?   (35:17): Yeah. Well, I have an Instagram account, it's Kate during fitness. I also am on Facebook at Kate during fitness. My website is kate deering.com. I'm actually working on a second book right now, which is gonna be heavy on one thing I've been asked since I've wrote the first one is a lot more recipe type things and, and kind of a more directional way that people can utilize this information to help themselves. I, you know, I I definitely come from a, a place of specificity, a spec being specific, meaning everyone is a little bit different. You kind of have to find your own path. It's what I provide is a lot of information to help people try to understand their body better so they can learn what to measure and how to keep up with things. And so they can see kind of direct their own path. And I, I think the more you learn about yourself and how well your body functions, the better off you're going to be in life. We don't teach, we don't really teach that anymore and I think it's just a, a really good way for you to kind of improve your health without lots of drugs or supplements or so forth and so on. Awesome.   (36:18): Well, thank you for those great resources.

“It just made me realize the importance of health coaching. Not telling people what to do, but helping them realize their wants and their needs, and helping dive into their personal strengths, and getting them to pave their own way. Because they really are the experts on their life and on their body,” explains Heather Cracauer. Heather began her career in healthcare as a doctor of pharmacy and has 14 years of experience as a pharmacist. When she caught covid in the Fall of 2020, she began experiencing chronic health issues like fatigue, headaches, and overall feeling like garbage. Her traditional doctors could not find the issue with standard lab testing and one suggested she see a functional medicine practitioner. That practitioner ran a bunch of tests and the results were shocking. Heather's body was dealing with mold exposure, SIBO, and dysbiosis. She immediately wanted to learn more about functional medicine. Now Heather is a certified functional medicine practitioner who runs a virtual practice from her home offering health and functional nutrition coaching.    Heather went into medicine wanting to help people achieve better health. As a pharmacist, she did not get to spend enough time with each patient to really help them with their health goals as much as she would have liked. When she realized that functional medicine could help get to the root cause of chronic illnesses, she found her calling in health coaching. As a pharmacist, Heather was giving patients medications for their ailments rather than helping them to determine the root cause. But now, she is able to eliminate medicine from her patient's charts and replace it with nutrition and lifestyle changes.    The difference that functional medicine can make in patients' lives is truly mind blowing. Heath coaching and nutrition should be treated like an integral part of the healthcare system, yet traditional Western medicine is years behind in this regard. By getting to the actual root cause of the illnesses in the body, chronic conditions can be eliminated and there can be a reduction in the amount of medication a patient needs to take.    Quotes • “I got the functional medicine tests back and it was shocking. I had mold exposure, I had dysbiosis 10 out of 10 on that scale with SIBO. I had inflammatory markers that were just sky high. Just so many things were wrong. So it's kind of the catalyst that was the light bulb, where I realized there's more to medicine. We can actually get to the root cause.” (4:36-5:33 | Heather)  • “It just made me realize the importance of health coaching. Not telling people what to do, but helping them realize what they want, their wants and their needs, and helping dive into their personal strengths, and getting them to pave their own way. Because they really are the experts on their life and on their body.” (12:28-12:54 | Heather) • “What has always driven me is just helping people achieve health, good health, better health, whatever that means to them.” (16:56-17:05 | Heather) • “I feel like health coaching and nutritionists need to become part of the integral system.” (25:35-25:42 | Heather)    Links Connect with Heather Cracauer: Website: https://www.cracauerfunctionalpharmacy.com/ Connect with Lara:  Website: https://drlarasalyer.com Instagram: @drlarasalyer Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/drlarasalyer Linked-In: https://www.linkedin.com/in/drlarasalyer/ YouTube:  https://www.youtube.com/c/DrLaraSalyer TikTok: @Creativity.Doctor   Podcast production and show notes provided by HiveCast.fm

If your goal is to optimize your hormones and gut health, have better energy, or lose weight and keep it off Rachel can help you! This episode originally aired in August 2021. Rachel's journey as a nutrition coach began in weight-loss and athletic performance. However, a couple years into her practice she began to suffer from severe gastrointestinal dysfunction (IBS.) After many false diagnoses, spending thousands of dollars on doctor visits and tests, and one doctor even suggesting the removal of her entire large intestine, Rachel decided to take her health into her own hands. Using her knowledge in nutrition and dietetics Rachel became an expert on gut health and hormonal balance and completed her certification in functional medicine through the Kalish Institute. Rachel says “using a functional approach and focusing on the health of the gut microbiome saved [her] life. Rachel's nutrition philosophy is one that looks at the total person. She uses functional lab testing to address the root cause of any imbalances in the body and creates a customized program consisting of dietary recommendations, supplements, and lifestyle modifications to optimize your health and wellbeing. In this episode, Rachel opens up about her story of becoming one of the world's top health and fitness influencers. On the outside, Rachel had the "perfect body." However, on the inside, Rachel was suffering from gut issues, depression, anxiety, thyroid problems, and hormone imbalances.

Rachel decided to go to Baylor University for Nutrition Science and Dietetics. At college, Rachel started weightlifting, fitness competitions, and bodybuilding. She was known as someone who could maintain this incredible physique for so long. Fitness was an outlet for Rachel to escape her trauma. [04:20] Rachel Was Close To Getting Her Entire Large Intestine Cut Out Rachel suffered from a lot of chronic gut issues. She realized that bodybuilding wasn't healthy; she was miserable on the inside. During her bodybuilding days, Rachel had hormonal imbalances, her thyroid took a massive hit, she was depressed, and she had anxiety. Rachel's gut issues were severe – whenever Rachel ate, she had massive pain. The gastroenterologist wanted to cut out her large intestine. Something in Rachel's gut told her not to do the surgery. Instead, she went down the road of functional medicine. [15:40] A Guide To Increasing Diversity In Your Gut Food is a great way to increase diversity in your gut. More diversity in our gut leads to more leanness, which can help improve our metabolism. The first thing you can do is feed the bacteria in the gut by increasing more fibers. Green bananas are a great way to increase diversity. Figure out a way to rotate some of the foods and fibers that you're eating. “Food is going to be the number one source of fuel for a greater diversity in our gut.” -Rachel Scheer [23:45] The Worst Foods You Can Eat For Gut Health Sugar A lot of pathogenic bacteria thrive off of sugar in the diet. Sugar also leads to obesity which will wreak havoc on our gut microbiome. Vegetable oils They create massive inflammation throughout our entire body. We can metabolize sugar, but we can't metabolize these seed oils. Medications (antibiotics, antacids, PPIs, and birth control) Birth control can deplete the body of key micronutrients. It can wreak havoc in our gut microbiome not only because of depleting the nutrients, but it can cause an imbalance of bacteria. Most people have too much stomach acid, and we overuse antacids. Stress Stress causes us to be in a catabolic state. When our digestive system is not really working because we're in a stress state, this can lead to a lot of bacterial overgrowth. Unresolved trauma People who've gone through trauma actually have a low vagal tone. When we go through periods of stress, our gut is affected. Sugar substitutes Use monk fruit and stevia instead of other popular substitutes like sucralose. Dairy and wheat Most of us can't really break down lactose. Try to do an elimination diet by removing dairy. Raw diets Raw vegetables have a lot of insoluble fibers. In general, we need to cook our food. [43:25] Building Lean Muscle Mass Important For Longevity Protein is incredibly important for our skeletal muscle mass. When we don't have adequate skeletal muscle mass, we have higher levels of blood sugar and higher levels of insulin. The number one reason why people end up in nursing homes is for sarcopenia. Overall, we need to eat high-quality protein and increase skeletal muscle mass in the body. [48:25] Which Is More Important: A Physical Six-Pack or a Mental Six-Pack? Rachel says a mental six-pack is more important than a physical six-pack. Losing weight won't make you happy. Instead, who you are as a person will make you happy. Always work on being the best version of yourself and always do things that will improve your mental health and wellbeing. [40:55] How To Respond To Hateful Comments and Messages Online People like to put you down and criticize you online. Usually, it's all about the person that is doing the criticizing. When you stand up for the things you believe in, then no one can make you feel bad. You have to know undoubtedly who you are and what you stand for. [56:55] The Benefits of Having A Coach On Your Health Journey If there's anything you want to truly excel in, you should work with an expert. You are the greatest investment you can ever make. Too often, people think the cost of a coach is too high. However, you are the only investment that you can make that will continue to give back to you. Find a coach in every area of your life that you want to improve in. AND MUCH MORE!

He is Medical Director and founder of the Undoctored program including the Undoctored Inner Circle. He is Chief Medical Officer and co-founder of Realize Therapeutics Corp. that is developing innovative solutions for the disrupted human microbiome and author of the book Super Gut.Lisa and Dr. Davis discuss his latest book, "Super Gut: A Four-Week Plan to Reprogram Your Microbiome, Restore Health, and Lose Weight."Book description: The best-selling author of the Wheat Belly books brings his next big, game changing idea — the human microbiome and the silent epidemic of SIBO — to the mainstream.Wheat Belly was a breakthrough, informing listeners that the wheat and grains we consume today are not the same wheat and grains of our ancestors and were making us overweight and sick. In Super Gut, Dr. Davis takes his research and findings a step further and shows that because of our highly processed diet, pesticides, and overuse of antibiotics, our guts are is now missing so many of the good bacteria required to be healthy. As a result, many of us have lost control over health, weight, mood, even behavior.The ancient bacteria that keep our gut in alignment and our digestion easy have been dying off, replaced by harmful microbes that don't serve to keep us physically healthy and mentally fit. With cutting-edge research, Dr. Davis has connected the dots between gut health and modern ailments and complaints. There are entire species of microbes that have disappeared, creating health issues that were uncommon 100, or even 50, years ago. A major consequence is SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), a silent and profound epidemic, which affects one out of three people and is responsible for an astounding range of human health conditions.Super Gut shows listeners how to eliminate bad bacteria and bring back the missing “good” bacteria with a four-week plan to reprogram your microbiome based on research and techniques that not only get to the root of many diseases but improve levels of oxytocin (the bonding/happy hormone), brain health, and promote anti-aging, weight loss, mental clarity, and more restful sleep. Super Gut explains the science clearly and includes more than forty recipes, a diet plan, and resources so you can pinpoint your gut issues, correct them, and maintain your long-term health and well-being.

The presence of these small bulges is fairly common, but it can become problematic when they become inflamed or infected.Diverticula, or the small pouches, are formed in weak portions of the large intestine. They are usually found in the sigmoid colon, which is on the lower left side of the gastrointestinal tract. They are often due to weak spots in the colon.Diverticulitis symptoms are severe abdominal pain (often in the left side), fever, and nausea, chills, and cramps. Since it has similar symptoms to a lot of other gut issues, it can be hard to diagnose. However severe symptoms signal that you need treatment as soon as possible.While the presence of diverticula is fairly common, only 5% of these cases turn into Diverticulitis. It is more likely as you get older.Other risk factors include:high-fat diethigh red meat consumptionlow-fibre dietlow exercisenonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (aspirin, ibuprofen)maleSources: HERE and HEREDiagnosis of Diverticulitis and TreatmentIn order to diagnose diverticulitis, your health care provider will often check your medical history and touch your stomach to gauge pain levels.They can also run the following tests:blood testsstool samplesCT scansigmoidoscopydigital rectal examOnce diagnosed, diverticulitis is often treated with antibiotics. Often it will be recommended to rest, and follow a low-fiber diet or liquid diet until inflammation goes down. This prevents the risk of further inflaming the diverticula.In extreme cases, surgery is sometimes required. This is only if the infection reaches a point where it is creating blockages and affecting your entire digestive tract.What Causes DiverticulitisA lot of scientists theorize that one of the main causes is a low-fiber diet. This leads to constipation which puts pressure on your abdominal wall and causes diverticula.It is also thought that infections of these diverticula can occur from gut dysbiosis, parasites, and bacterial infections.By increasing the consumption of high-fiber foods (implementing a more high-fibre diet), you can reduce the risk of diverticulitis significantly.Eating Habits for DiverticulitisJoanna recommends a couple of shifts that made a huge difference in preventing her own diverticulitis from flaring up.Taking digestive aidsJoanna takes HCL with meals that are high in protein or are harder to digestShe also takes Lactaid when eating dairy to help with digestionDigestive enzymes can also be usefulBetter digestion= less chance of inflammationBeing careful with probioticsWhile some probiotics can help with gut dysbiosis, some can further inflame the gutThe effectiveness of probiotics with diverticulitis is based on the root causeEating less raw foodJoanna limits her consumption of raw veggies such as saladsCooking veggies makes it easier to digest and reduces risk of inflammationIncluding supplementationTaking supplements your body is low in or to substitute for hard-to digest foodsJoanna takes iron to limit her red meat intakeSmaller portions and mindful eatingTaking time in between mealsAllows time for the MMC to “sweep the gut”Gives your body time to actually digest in between eatingDrinking plenty of waterHelps move food through the digestive systemFluids can help with more regular bowel movementsTIP: carbonated water to increase if opposed to regularMoving body after eatingCan help with both digestion and blood glucose levelsThe takeaway here is that anything that improves overall digestion will reduce inflammation.This results in less flare ups of diverticula.Are you having a hard time digesting food? Digest Plus was created for you!YES! GET MY DIGEST PLUS HERE + USE CODE GUTHEALING10 TO SAVE 10% AT CHECKOUTDiverticulitis DietThere is honestly no one “correct” dietary changes for diverticulitis.However, it is often suggested to follow a high-fiber diet in order the keep the digestive system flowing smoothly.It is recommended to eat 14 grams of fiber per 1,000 calories eaten in a day.The western diet typically does not contain nearly enough fiber, so it is important to make a conscious effort. This amount is recommended to ANYONE, regardless of if you have diverticulitis or not. It does help to follow this to both treat and prevent intestinal inflammation.Here are some common high-fiber foods to include in your diet:whole grain foodsbeansberriesbroccoliavocadospotatoesapplesnutsWANT MORE INFORMATION ON FIBER AND THE MICROBIOME? YOU'LL FIND IT ALL BY CLICKING HERE.Joanna personally does not adhere to a special diet but has found a routine that works for her.Her diet includes things such as oatmeal, fresh fruit, nuts, starchy carbohydrates, proteins, and soups.She recommends finding foods that feel good to YOUR body, as no template for eating will be perfectly fit to your own gut. You are the only one who can properly know what works for your digestive system and what does not.Some fun tips Joanna has found through experimentation are:red wine can help with her symptoms of SIBO (bloating and gas)almonds and fatty nuts help with both sugar cravings and migrainesstarchy carbohydrates help with both satiety and digestionAll of these work for HER, which is part of the reason it is so important to find your own eating pattern.If you listen to your body it will be much easier to prevent a flare-up.Lifestyle Shifts for DiverticulitisOne of Joanna's main shifts that has changed her gut has been to REDUCE stress. You are probably so tired of hearing this advice, but it is truly a game-changer.Here are some ways she lowers her stress:Setting boundariesEspecially if you are a type A person, setting boundaries for yourself is critical. Saying no to certain opportunities and not overloading your plate are so helpful in giving your body time to rest and relax.SleepPrioritizing sleep is truly one of the best things you can do for your body. Joanna sets a strict sleep schedule in order to be asleep by 9:30 and have a full 8 hours a night.Moving bodyMoving your body not only is healthful for your physical well-being, but it also helps with mental well-being.Exercise boosts both endorphins and helps to lower cortisol levels (stress hormone). Adjusting your exercise to fit your current needs is a KEY part of making the most of your workout.Joanna recommends low-impact exercise such as walking or yoga over higher intensity cardio or strength training.This turns exercise into a way to both strengthen and stretch your body, rather than being hard on your cells.Being intentional with foodSince food literally feeds our gut it is crucial to think about WHAT and HOW we are eating.Opt for foods that feel good to you and are nutrient-dense.Self-careOr as Joanna calls it, “living slow.” This could be anything from sitting down to read a book to taking a hot bath at night. Take the time to care for your body.These are more natural remedies for treating inflammation in the body. Since inflammation and stress are so directly linked, it makes sense that taking steps to reduce stress can help prevent a diverticulitis flare-up.Advice for Gut HealingJoanna recommends a few steps to take for anyone on their gut journey.Follow practitioners and individuals well-versed in gut healthGather information about yourselfTHE ANSWERS ARE IN YOUR OWN BODYAs with any podcast, I asked Joanna to give us her three convictions around gut healing.Here were the three convictions she provided:Listen to your own body and know that everyone is uniqueBe your own detectiveDon't underestimate how much stress can impact your healthBe your own detective!Get ‘A Gutsy Girl's‘ 90-day gut healing journey journal, Healing Blooms from Within.Our team can mail you a physical, spiral-bound journal OR you can download the journal PDF to print on your own instantly.I NEED THE PHYSICAL COPY OF THIS JOURNAL SENT MY WAY TODAY!All three of these are absolutely key to anyone trying to figure out their own health problems.Taking ownership over your own symptoms and treatment is one of the first steps anyone should take in their healing journey, whether that be diverticulitis or anything else.More from A Gutsy GirlWant to learn even more about the gut and ways to heal it?Learn all the secrets via my signature book, A Gutsy Girl's Bible: a 21-day approach to healing the gut.

This week on the Less Stressed Life Podcast is a recording of a LIVE community call I recently hosted all about gut & stool testing.  I want to do these calls monthly to be helpful, get to know your needs, and answer questions for you.My next community call will be on Dec 20, 2022, at 11 AM MT/1 PM ET for 30 min, and we'll be talking about testing for stress hormones. You can register for that one at www.christabiegler.com/community.I've got a couple of tests I'm going to compare for looking at adrenal hormones in practice.We covered:Differences between conventional and functional stool tests, including sensitivity and conventional tests, are useful in acute situations, where functional testing can be more helpful in chronic situations.DIY vs. working with a practitioner.Viome stool testing.What to do if budget is an issue.SIBO testing vs. stool testing.I walked through a GI Map and compared it to another common functional stool test on the market.Andrea asked great questions about what to do with constantly changing markers on a stool test.Susan asked about parasites.Adriana asked about HS and body acne.Britt asked about trying to find a practitioner.When to go functional? Chronic, low-grade, annoying symptoms (When you're told everything is fine)BOTTOM LINE: Your symptoms are AS important as a test.To paraphrase Andrea from our call, “the test will show you a problem but not solve the problem.”You do need to find a practitioner that knows what they are doing with stool testing. It's pretty useful in gut, skin issues, and fatigue, which are all topics in my wheelhouse.If you'd like to work with me 1:1, I'm accepting a small handful of clients in December to complete testing and get started in January.www.christabiegler.com/schedule

Cómo se diagnostica el SIBO?Hay 2 formas de saber si tenemos SIBO o no:ASPIRADO YEYUNAL, que se realiza mediante endoscopia y el diagnóstico se considera positivo si el recuento del contenido duodeno-yeyunal es superior ó igual a 103 UFC/ml de bacterias gram negativas aerobias o anaerobias estrictas. Este tipo de prueba no suele ser la de primera elección, ya que resulta CARA e invasiva, además de que si el SIBO se encuentra en íleon (es decir, al final del intestino delgado), esta prueba no lo detectará.TEST de ALIENTO, que es el más habitual y usado: consiste en beber una solución de 10g de lactulosa lactitol o 75g de glucosa e iremos soplando cada 20-30 minutos durante un período de 2 a 3 horas. Lo que se va a medir en esta prueba de aire espirado van a ser 2 gases principalmente: hidrógeno y metano, que van a ser los gases generados por ese sobrecrecimiento de bacterias intestinales que, al fermentar los azúcares de la solución que nos hemos bebido, fermentarán por un gas, por otro o por ambos.¿Qué ventajas tiene esta prueba? más económica no es invasiva Hoy en día hay laboratorios que incluso te mandan el kit a casa para realizarse uno mismo la prueba, así que resulta mucho más sencillo y cómodo. Aunque también tiene algún que otro inconveniente, como la sensibilidad y especificidad, que son menores que en aspirado yeyunal.Como consideraciones previas antes de la realización de la prueba, vamos a nombrar las siguientes, aunque va a depender, al final, de cada laboratorio, pero hablaremos de las que suelen ser comunes casi en todos ellos:un mes antes de la realización del test: no se debe haber tomado antibióticos, probióticos ni laxantes. Ni tampoco deben habernos realizado ninguna colonoscopia, ni habernos aplicado ningún enemas.El día anterior a la prueba, no debe haber consumo de fibra o de alimentos ricos en fibra y, según, que lab o guía miremos, tampoco de HC. Vamos, solo podremos ingerir protes.Las 12h previas a la prueba, no se debe ni se puede comer, beber (ni siquiera agua), fumar, masticar chicle, ni pintarse los labios.Justo antes de la prueba: no se debe haber hecho ejercicio físico los 30' antes. Reposo absoluto! Y, cuáles van a ser los valores diagnósticos?Según el sustrato usado, los valores diagnósticos serán unos u otros.Si se ha ingerido la solución de Lactulosa/lactitol, los valores de referencia de H2 respecto a los valores basales, será de un aumento de más de 20 ppm en los primeros 90' de la prueba. Los valores de referencia para CH4 rondarán los 10-12ppm o por encima de los valores basales. Si el sustrato ha sido la glucosa, los valores para H2 también serán de un aumento de 20 ppm o más, y de CH4 de más de 10 ppm sobre los valores basales, siempre dentro de los primeros 90'.Además, es muy importante que durante la realización de esta prueba, se valore contínuamente la sintomatología compatible y la velocidad de tránsito de la persona. Vamos a hablar ahora del tratamiento para SIBO, cómo tratamos el Sibo?Bien, pues lo primero que debéis saber es que el tratamiento de SIBO consiste por un lado en tratamiento con ATB, por otro, en el abordaje nutricional para adaptar la alimentación y por último pero no por ello menos importante, en el abordaje psicológico para la gestión del estrés. Vamos con el tratamiento farmacológico, que puede se convencional o con herbáceos:Si se opta por el tratamiento médico tradicional, es decir, mediante ATB farmacológicos, siempre siempre vamos a necesitar tener el test de aliento realizado en los 2 gases comentados, ya que en función del gas que se eleva, se va a escoger un fármaco u otro.Se utilizan antibióticos de amplio espectro entre 7 y 14 días para corregir el sobrecrecimiento. A veces, son necesarios varios ciclos de tratamiento, por lo que es recomendable usarlos a dosis mínimas efectivas.En el caso de elevación de H2 suelen pautar Rifaximina o Spiraxin (nombre comercial).Si se eleva el metano se aconseja asociar 2 ATB: Rifaximina + Neomicina/ Metronidazol. Es necesaria la combinación de ambos ATB, ya que como hemos comentado antes, aunque en el test solamente se eleve el CH4 seguramente haya producción de H2 y por ello va a ser necesaria la combinación de ambos ATB, para erradicar tanto arqueas como bacterias. En el caso de SIBO por sulfuro de H2, el tratamiento es el mismo que en el caso de SIBO por metano, es decir, combinación de Rifaximina + Neomicina/ Metronidazol.

Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend! I'm looking forward to sharing with you some of our community's questions that have come in over the past few weeks…   Simon: Hi Dr Cabral, I have a quick question on sugar vs non-caloric sweeteners such as xylitol, erythritol and mannitol. I mostly eat a very healthy Mediterranean diet however sweets are my guilty pleasure! I try not too eat too much sugar and avoid artificial sweeteners at all cost, so lately I've been buying some ice cream and chocolate sweetened with xylitol and erythritol assuming this would be 'better for me', but deep down I'm wondering whether a bit of sugar would actually be better than these additives. I've listened to your podcasts on natural non-nutritive sweeteners but never heard you directly compare them to sugar and say which would be a healthier choice. For context I'm fit and healthy with good insulin sensitivity but have suffered from IBS-D in the past. Thanks!   Luke: I have been through quite a lot, from going to the gym 6 days a week, eating relatively balanced, happy and healthy individual to one day January 2nd 2021, massive panic attack I thought i was going to die. 2 weeks later, Fibromyalgia symptoms, then Chronic Fatigue, then burning sensations all over my body, then balance issues, then brain fog got so bad I didn't even recognize who I was. I ended up with 30 plus chronic symptoms.  I found functional medicine and I have healed 20 of the 30 symptoms I was experiencing but some still remain. I am a strong believer that EBV was the main cause for all of this. My remaining symptoms are (new symptom) very warm sensation, feels like someone poured warm milk down the left side of my leg, calf mainly but also my arm and sometimes my head. ER said these warm sensations are nothing to worry about and go home. Ectopic beats, could this be EBV or the parasite, I did a 6 month parasite protocol Still have Blastocystis hominis. But because I got 80% better, was it really ever the parasite as a lot of people I spoke to said it is super bad. But I could never get rid of it with taking very targeted supplements like everything in your parasite protocol and also a 10 day course of a compounded anti parasitic antibiotic.  I feel my heart beat generally all over my body, very heavy at times especially when I do something active, I think the main issue is that I can feel it. I've been through 2 cardioligist and they say everything is normal and fine and benign ectopics. This is the main issue I want to get rid of.  Still fatigue and bodily sensations remain too.  I WAS 80 percent better, but now about 50% better.  Surely after 12 months of clean eating, protocols left right and centre, targeted supplements to go along with my results, I would be feeling the needle move forward and not backwards.  What am I missing here? Thank you Dr Cabral   Joy: Hello Dr Cabral, my question/concern is related to pancreatic insufficiency. After years of being treated for CBO then SIBO, plus ongoing treatment for past trauma and still no improvement, actually feeling worse with more bloating and gas my gastroenterologist did more stool testing. The results showed pancreatic insufficiency. I am told the only way to treat this is by taking the prescription digestive enzymes. I was also told just take the enzymes and I'll be fine, that I should be able to eat what I want. I have been taking the enzymes for over a month now and still experiencing bloating and gas, although much better than before taking them. Are taking the enzymes the only answer? There must be other things I can do I support my system? Thank you for your help! Thank you for all you do!   Joan: Hi Dr. Cabral, I'm addicted to your podcasts. :) Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us for free!! My question: I know you said something to the effect that anything that's wrong with the body can be fixed or reversed, but does that pertain to mental issues as well? I'm 57 and have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I've been taking SSRIs for 30 years. I'm worried that there will be poor long-term side effects. I'm also afraid to wean off them because I've tried that and it wasn't pretty. Thank you for your help! Joan   Thomas: What would you do about a high AG ratio? My Albumin has been high for two years in a row, and this year my globalin level got closer to the bottom of the range triggering a high A/G ratio. I do the quarterly Dr. Cabral detox and typically add in the blueberries and sweet potatoes day 3 since I'm apt to losing weight.

Resources90-day gut healing journey journalWebsite (Dr. Jess + her work)Dr. Jess on InstagramDon't Miss These Thoughts!Who is Dr. Jess Peatross?What exactly is Lyme disease and how does one get it?What are some symptoms a Lyme disease patient might experience? And what does it have to do with the gut?For many it seems as though Lyme disease treatment can be tricky. Dr. Jess shares what some of the most common and/or effective treatments are + why it's hard to heal from Lyme.Do dietary changes work for her patients with Lyme disease? And what are some specific foods she has them eat and/or remove from the diet?Are there any nutritional supplements that are helpful for those with Lyme?Dr. Jess is well-versed in other topics, too, so I wanted to at least highlight them in the episode. The first is mold illness. Like Lyme disease, it seems as though mold illness is another major underlying factor for severe gut issues. So, what is mold illness and how is it connected to the gut?So much of chronic illness has to do with our drainage pathways. Dr. Jess talks a lot about this so she gives a brief overview of what drainage pathways are and what the first step to opening them up contains.Finally, besides chronic disease, she also talks about scarring from C sections, augmentations, etc. and how they hold the sympathetic nervous system in overdrive of the trauma that sustained them. I also know that scarring can be one of the main reasons for recurrent SIBO, so Dr. Jess tells us more about what this might look like for someone.“A body that is imbalanced is a body at risk”Dr. Jessica PeatrossWhat is Lyme?Lyme disease is caused by a corkscrew bacteria known as bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi.Its shape gives it the unique ability to burrow deep into tissue and dig its way in, which is part of the reason this infection can be so hard to fight off.It often hides deep in connective tissue, such as joints, which is part of the reason it can cause symptoms such as joint pain.Since b. burgdorferi does not hide in the bloodstream, and instead in the tissue, most of the conventional tests are highly inaccurate. Blood tests used by conventional doctors such as the western blot blood test are known to miss Lyme in 50-80% of patients.Dr. Jess calls Lyme “the great mimicker” as it mimics other diseases and symptoms due to its wide-ranging effects.Its location can cause migrating joint pain, chronic fatigue syndrome, and brain fog.All of these are somewhat vague in nature, which is another reason Lyme is so hard to pinpoint initially.How Do You Get Lyme?Lyme is carried primarily by ticks.The bacteria is transmitted through a tick bite into the skin of Lyme patients.Unfortunately, due to climate change ticks are expanding their territory and the places they can inhabit. This makes Lyme a much higher risk than it used to be, regardless of location.Tick-borne illness such as Lyme have DOUBLED in the last 13 years, with Lyme being the most prevalent.New studies are also showing that mosquitos can also carry Lyme, which is slightly concerning. This means more potential infections in the future.Source: HERECommon Lyme Disease SymptomsDr. Jess list some of the common symptoms of Lyme:visual changes – blurry visionmigrainesco-infection (like stubborn SIBO)TMJ or locked jawbrain fogjoint paininsomniahormonal imbalancesdecreased immune functionflares of other chronic disease such as autoimmunityLyme infections cause the body to go out of balance, or have trouble maintaining homeostasis.A lot of mechanisms that we rely on daily are due to homeostasis, such as our sleep cycle, energy, body temperature, hunger cues, etc.This is part of the reason that Lyme is truly so destructive on overall health, as it impacts so many different reactions within the body.In terms of its impact on the gut, Lyme has several negative effects.Since Lyme has such a negative effect on the immune system, it actually makes it easier for pathogens to make it to the gut. The immune system lacks the capacity to fight off these foreign invaders and more infections can spring up in the gut.This can be anything from parasites to yeast to mold.Manifestation of SymptomsYou may be wondering, how long does it take for these symptoms to start showing up?And the answer is- it totally depends.Dr. Jess explains how the individual's immune system actually determines how long these symptoms will take to occur. It also controls how severe these symptoms may be.If someone's immune system is in good standing, you can expect to see a “bulls-eye” rash appear quickly after the bite. This rash is your body's reaction to Lyme initially, and it actually a good sign of immune function.After the rash occurs, it is fairly variable how long the symptoms will take to occur.This often happens anywhere from 2 weeks to a month or so after being exposed to Lyme.It only takes about 24-72 hours for the ticks to transmit the bacteria, but symptoms usually do not occur until the bacteria starts fully colonizing in the body.Lyme Disease TestingDr. Jess recommends several different tests that she uses in her own coaching:vibrantlabarmin labsIGeneXwestern blot (a last resort but is ok if on a tight budget)All of these tests are blood tests but have more sensitive markers than traditional blood tests.They test for different bands of tick exposure, which can point to Lyme disease.Treatment of Lyme DiseaseDr. Jess explains how her Lyme treatment actually differs slightly from the traditional treatment.Most doctors go straight for an antibiotic treatment, which can work, but also leaves room for bacterial resistance. Bacteria can easily alter and form resistance to certain antibiotics, which lowers their potential for success.Dr. Jess uses a two-step approach to healing Lyme consisting of opening drainage pathways and then killing the infection.Opening drainage pathwaysOpening drainage pathways helps to reset the body to homeostasis and normalcy BEFORE attempting to kill anything.This allows individuals to actually dump toxicities and exposures out of their body through multiple pathways such as the liver, bowels, and kidneys.Since bacteria feed on organic waste, removing this waste also helps to determine why the bacteria was there in the first place.Once the drainage pathways are opened- individuals able to sweat, consistently go to the bathroom, and establish normal sleep- they are ready for the next phase.Killing phaseBy using antimicrobials, Dr. Jess focuses on killing the Lyme bacteria.Some of her suggested antimicrobials include:BiocidinCellCore productsbiofilm bustersShe also recommends some herbs that have antimicrobial properties such as:clovewormwoodblack walnut hullberberineSome of these herbs also have anti-inflammatory properties, which is an added bonus!Drainage PathwaysDrainage pathways are actually one of the MOST important parts of your body to understand. These pathways allow you to remove any toxins that you may breathe in, eat, or inhale through your nose.Since we are constantly being exposed to toxins, it is CRUCIAL that we have well-functioning drainage pathways.These include organs such as the kidney (filtering urine), liver (filtering out toxic material), bowels (rids bodies of unwanted substances), and sweat glands.Unfortunately, these pathways can often become overwhelmed and blocked. This results in a build-up of toxins, which can just lead to further infection.Dr. Jess reveals two common drainage blocks and how she remedies them:stagnant livercastor oil packs to encourage production of bileincreased consumption of bitter vegetables and herbscoffee enemasblocked sweat pathwayssauna or hot bathsslowly increase exposureBy working with a practitioner, you can hone in on opening these pathways, which is so important to overall gut healing.Lyme DietA Lyme diet is almost identical to an anti-inflammatory diet.It focuses on whole, unprocessed food while minimizing the number of inflammatory foods consumed.Dr. Jess recommends to “shop the perimeter of the grocery store” if you unsure where to start. This is the part of the store that will usually contain all the fresh fruits and vegetables, and fresh meat.ENCOURAGED TO EATgrass-fed meat and wild-caught fish (omega-3 fatty acids)fresh fruit and vegetables + leafy greensunprocessed whole grainsnuts and seedsbeansginger and turmeric (both anti-inflammatory)olive oil- healthy fats help to reduce inflammationHIGH-QUALITY MEAT IS CRITICAL! THIS IS WHY WE TRUST WILD PASTURES. CLICK HERE TO SAVE 20% FOR LIFE!DISCOURAGED TO EATseed oilsartificial sweetenersfood coloring and dyesprocessed glutenANY PROCESSED FOOD (chips, processed meat and cheese)nightshades (eggplants, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes)- correlated with higher inflammation, try experimenting with thisTaking out foods such as added sugars and processed gluten can be extremely hard for those with stealth infections.These pathogens often control your cravings and will lead you to crave food that they feed off of. It truly is the practice of extreme self-control that will get you on the path to healing.In addition, some individuals do find some relief on a gluten-free diet, but it really comes down to the individual.Try experimenting with taking gluten out, as it is a common inflammatory food.Lifestyle ChangesOn top of changing to an anti-inflammatory diet, it can also be helpful to make some changes to both your eating and lifestyle.This can help reduce inflammation and make the treatment process easier.Chronic inflammation both amplifies symptoms and slows down healing.include a variety of food – ensures that you are getting the necessary amount of vitamins and mineralscan also turn to supplements if nutritional deficiencies are suspectedthe more color in a meal, the higher it will be in antioxidants (prevents inflammation and damage on cells by oxygen)exercise – helps to decrease inflammatory responsesleep- make sure you are prioritizing sleepdecreased levels of sleep associated with increased inflammationadjust diet to what FEELS good to YOU- very individual on how certain foods will feelno single diet fits everyone's needs and symptomsdecrease stress levels – this one is SO hard I know, but it really helps reduce oxidative stress on the bodyThese changes can really help to get your body to a place where it can properly tackle the bacterial infection.Source: HERESupplementation for LymeWhile Dr. Jess does not use many supplements in her everyday life, she does have a couple that she likes using.vitamin Dvitamin Corgan meat supplements (contains essential B vitamins; When you use THIS link you'll automatically save 15%.

Oftentimes mold exposure actually is the catalyst for a host of other chronic diseases and autoimmune issues.Other fungal offshoots of mold can cause issues such as SIFO, small intestinal fungal overgrowth, or candida issues.These spores behave in almost the exact same manner as mold, growing in the gut lining. This affects the body's ability to maintain homeostasis (just like Lyme) and makes one prone to a whole host of other chronic infections.AwarenessFor all of these infections, AWARENESS is absolutely crucial!Lyme and its fungal counterparts all are extremely detrimental to overall health and well-being and it is crucial to know both how to identify it and what to do about infections.Over time these infections can lead to chronic issues and autoimmunity issues, so it is important to know how to recognize the signs.Taking a functional medicine approach to these fungal and bacterial issues can be an absolute game-changer for your overall health.More from A Gutsy GirlWant to learn even more about the gut and ways to heal it?Learn all the secrets via my signature book, A Gutsy Girl's Bible: a 21-day approach to healing the gut.

By getting to the real, root cause answers for WHY the body might be malfunctioning. Her philosophy….embraces that health encompasses the whole patient – mind, body, and spirit – and Dr. Jess has become one of the most-sought after Functional Medicine Leaders.She is known for her ability to help identify the root cause of illness, most often traced back to hidden, stealth infections like Lyme, parasites and mold, Dr. Jess's area of expertise.After graduating Magna Cum Lade with a BA in Biology, a minor in Psychology, and earning her medical degree from University of Louisville, Dr. Jess worked as a hospitalist for 6 years before beginning to experience what many of her patients experienced, deep anxiety, hormonal imbalances, and mitochondrial dysfunction.In the process of trying to heal herself, she sought answers to uncover the root cause of disease – something she thought she had learned in medical school but realized she had not. She began to investigate alternatives to today's modern medical industry that “treats every ill with a pill.” Dr. Jess left her hospitalist position and became trained in Gerson Therapy, Functional Medicine, Nutrigenomics, and Ozone Therapy and quickly uncovered that 90% of disease is a result of lifestyle, diet, and environment.The body has all the answers to heal and reverse chronic disease. She has gained notoriety for her Kill*Bind*Sweat method, a timed method of using herbs, binders and sweating to eradicate stealth infections and invaders from the body. Recently Dr. Jess launched her Wellness plus subscription app where she is helping thousands learn how to heal themselves. Kill – use of herbal supplements to kill off stealth infectionBind – by using a binding supplement, it acts like a sponge to “soak up” the die-offSweat – by sweating via exercise, sauna or hot baths, the deceased toxins are excreted by sweat out of the bodyShe previously devoted her time to consulting with clients around the globe and educating thousands of people worldwide, however with a waitlist more than a year long, Dr. Jess launched a comprehensive online platform and app called Wellness Plus to better serve all those hoping for an appointment.The new platform offers a plethora of educational courses, live webinars, root cause Quickies, Q&A, and guest vlogs that address the root causes of Lyme, Epstein Barr, mold, parasites, hormonal imbalances, digestive issues, mitochondrial dysfunction, censored topics, and more— the common root causes her patients seek help with from her. Dr. Jess is able to heal people without the need for narcotics, immunosuppressants, antidepressants, antibiotics or steroids and in 2020, made the decision to not continue her board certification with the AMA as she no longer practices pharmaceutical-based medicine.When she is not consulting with patients or speaking at national and international conventions, she can be found, practicing yoga, playing with her fur baby, Blaze, traveling the world or eating her favorite food, blueberries. Contact  hello@drjessmd.com to work with Dr. Jess. If you liked this episode, you might also enjoy:Cellular Healing {+ Diet Food List} {Episode 56 with Paola Xhuli}Guthealingsupplements.comEco Friendly DiffuserXox,SKH

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…   Donna: Hi Dr Cabral! I was recently diagnosed with a renal AML of 1.3cms and focal nodular neoplasm on my liver was noticed on my ultrasound. I need to now do an MRI to further investigate. I can't find any archived podcasts on these issues. Some background info: I was on “Yas” birth control pill for 8 years from 14-22 years old, and in the last 2 years I took antibiotics 8 times for UTIs. I'm someone who normally NEVER takes medication. I eat well, don't drink or smoke, but I've undergone a lot of stress since becoming a mom 4 years ago and feel like it's been since that time that my health has started to deteriorate as I try to juggle motherhood with running my own growing business. I'll be running the big 5 labs in 2 weeks, as I'm convinced they will shed more light on my health. Any input from you would help! Will these tumors ever go away in your experience? Thank you so much, I value your consideration and time!   Maria: Hi Dr Cabral! I would love to hear your thoughts on lecithin as a supplement. Do you recommend it? If so, how does it support the body and what benefits are there? I've heard it connected to cognitive functions, nerves, skin, cholesterol etc. Could it be helpful for someone who has signs of dementia? What about when there's loss of sensitivity, tingling and numbness in lower parts of the legs and feet? Or is there anyone is particular that is at risk of being low in lecithin? Many many thanks for all you do, your podcast is like my encyclopedia on all health related matters.   Jesseca: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you so much for all of the education you share. I've learned so much from you and am so grateful to have resources like yours to empower myself and my family to live happy, healthy lives. I have two separate questions that I asked in the Facebook support group, and they don't appear to have been answered before: 1) What is your opinion on chemical peels and products like retinol as part of a regular skin care routine? As I understand it, both make your skin very sensitive to the sun (requiring very diligent SPF application), which raises some red flags for me. What do you think? 2) What is your opinion on using mushrooms like lions mane, chaga, and cordyceps while pregnant? I'm planning on getting pregnant in the next year and am thinking about how to replace my morning coffee. When I've decided to give up caffeine in the past, I found mushrooms like this (e.g. FourSigmatic's functional creamer) to work really well as an alternative. I know you recommend reducing herbs while pregnant. Would mushrooms like this fall in the same category? Thank you! Jesseca   Tina: You are amazing, and thanks for all you do! My 13-year-old son was just diagnosed with severe swelling in his sinuses, a deviated septum, and sinus polyps. I have him on daily omegas, daily activated mullti, periodic balanced zinc, daily probiotic, 3 HistPro 2 X per day, and I just ordered the alkalizing vitamin c (all Equilife products). I was forced to start him on Flonase, but I also have him on the nutribiotic GSE nasal spray. They want to do surgery, but they agreed to see if his nose improved after three months on the Flonase. So, three questions: 1-How much alkalizing vitamin c should he take? 2- Is it fine to keep him on all of these other things, and for how long? 3-Is there anything else I could be doing before this follow-up visit to help him so that his nose improves and they don't want to push us into the surgery? He's just over 100 pounds and very fit and active. He has all of the seasonal allergies and allergies to peanuts, tree-nuts, and sesame. I know it will take a while for you to answer, and I did ask on Facebook as well, but I know this will be an ongoing issue, so I wanted to get your opinion since I really value it.   Jackie: My practitioner has recommended the Candida and Bacterial Optimizer (CBO) protocol. He is not an expert on Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth, however. He has noted that my good bacteria diversity is really low. I have been on antibiotics and antimicrobials for 10 months to combat my SIBO. So far, no luck. My hydrogen level remains elevated. My question is this. Is this particular protocol good to disrupt established and tough biofilms? Or is this protocol better for someone who would be using this protocol as a first round against SIBO? Has it ever been used with success on SIBO patients who had tough biofilms to break down? Finally, is there a reason why EDTA is not included in the biofilm buster formula?   Ales: Hello Dr. Cabral, I have a question regarding earth probiotic strains like B.coagulus, B.clausii, B.subtilis. Lately, I have seen many products of these particular strains being used, especially in combination with botanicals and biofilm removers to help with SIBO. Is there any real evidence regarding soil based probiotics or you aren't convinced of their efficacy? With SIBO or in general?   Ales: Hello Dr. Cabral, in my last question I forgot to add that I work in a functional medicine clinic, where we analyse gut microbiom. We see very often low counts of akkermansia muciniphila, which is critical for healthy gut barrier. Soil based probiotics are suppose to indirectly increase akkermansia. Do you see any valuable evidence of that?   Thank you for tuning into this weekend's Cabral HouseCalls and be sure to check back tomorrow for our Mindset & Motivation Monday show to get your week started off right!   - - - Show Notes and Resources: StephenCabral.com/2487 - - - Get a FREE Copy of Dr. Cabral's Book: The Rain Barrel Effect - - - Join the Community & Get Your Questions Answered: 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 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) - - - Get Your Question Answered On An Upcoming HouseCall: StephenCabral.com/askcabral - - - Would You Take 30 Seconds To Rate & Review The Cabral Concept?
