Today’s Cabral Concept is here!

HouseCall: Food Sensitivity Causes, Longer Fasts, Firefighter Detox, Grumbling Stomach, Too Much Water After Waking

Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows!

This is where we answer our community’s wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track!

Check out today’s questions:

James: Hi everyooneee (Dr Cabral voice) 😀 but actually Hi doc, because this question today is for you. I wanted to hear your thoughts on food sensitivities, my understanding is that they are usually caused by undigested food particles breaching the tight junctions in the gut lining then the body having an immune response to that specific food because it’s now in the blood stream – then when we eat that food again the body still has that same immune response and starts attacking itself, causing food intolerance symptoms? Firstly can you confirm if I am correct with that, and if so do you think it’s possible to cure food intolerances then by sealing up the tight junctions and taking care of any fungus/bacteria overgrowth – or will your body still have an immune response to these specific foods? If you could dive deep(ish) into how food intolerances are created, how symptoms arise and the mechanism behind curing them I would be super interested to learn! If you have time Thanks again – James

Richie: Dr Cabral, I listen to your podcast all the time. I have recently become interested in extended water fasting and the benefits of autophagy. 5 , 10, 30 day fasts.I was diagnosed with Hashimitos in March. I’m taking 125 mg synthetic T4. I’m 50 pounds overweight and suffering brain fog and mood swings. Do you think a prolonged water fast of 30 days could reset my metabolism and cleanse my gut? Or do you think it could be dangerous and damage my already stressed adrenal system? I’d appreciate if you could consider this topic for your podcast.Cheers, Richie 

Alpha: Hey Dr. Cabral. I really enjoy your show and try to put as many people as possible on to it. I’m a firefighter and sometimes despite out best efforts we get exposed to smoke, fumes, dust etc. All the years the recommendation after a major call where that happens is to drink some milk. The seniors claim it helps trap and remove contaminants. Is there any possible truth to this or is it an old wives tale not rooted in science? Also what recommendations you have for firefighters, victims or those in similar circumstances who may have been exposed to smoke/contaminants etc? Would an active lifestyle help combat risks? As always keep up great work.

Madison: Hi Dr. Cabral! Big fan of your podcast & all that you stand for. I am 22 years old and have a question regarding the correlation between cortisol and intermittent fasting. I am very active workout out 5-6x/week and prefer to fast 7pm-9am. However, I find that, for example, if I wake up at 5:30am to workout, when I return home to get ready, around 7-7:30am, my stomach is grumbling/expressing hunger, but I don’t physically feel hungry. With stress in my job/commute to the city, could these stomach/intestinal noises be a sign of high cortisol? Thanks!!

Ruth: I started doing Amanda’s program and your detox. I drank 30 oz upon waking and then the 20oz shake. I was feeling nauseous and had to stop. So my point: what should i do from here. I didn’t think feeling nauseous was normal, which is why i discontinued the detox shake/pills. Is this something that indicates something else is going on? Should i try again in a week? I have three boys: 9, 6 and 4 that i homeschool and my 4 year old has severe medical issues that i am sole caregiver for. My youngest son has had a lot of medical issues since hes been born to say the least which is why i started my health journey becUse i need to be around to take care of him. But i am in shape and been working out since last oct, and have been eating healthy, whole foods according to the faster way june: no gluten or dairy. I just wanted to give all details so you could advise best on how i should proceed. I will be honest that im scared to try again but maybe it was just the perfect storm of a day with mensuration, but i have a lot on my shoulders in life to be responsible for and being unavailable to my kids, especially my youngest, is not an option. Thanks for your time, ruth
