Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows!

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

Check out today's questions: 

Ryan: Hello Dr. Cabral, really enjoying the new Thursday guest podcasts! Thanks for all that you do! My question is in regards to people with graves disease who have had radioactive iodine ablation. (Thanks to you I understand the workings of the HPA and HPT axis, and triggers/solutions for autoimmune conditions within the framework of our lifestyle habits and epi-genetics)My question is simply this, in your clinical experience have had clients regain normal thyroid function after having their thyroid ablated without needing thyroid medication? When I had this procedure a few years ago I was told I would be on thyroid medication forever since the ablation apparently induces a permanent hypo-thyroid state. I have been on nature throid for a while and am doing well, but wanted to see if a protocol (12-16 weeks?) with the daily thyroid support and potentially an additional thyroid glandular could help heal my thyroid and allow me to wean of nature throid? I understand that this could work for typical hypo-thyroid or hashimotos clients but could this work for those who had radio-active iodine ablation? My goal is to eventually be off thyroid medication for good, and use supplements as the stressors of life see fit! Thanks!

Rie: Hi. Thank you so much for all you do to help people. I have completed all the tests except for the food sensitivity test and have completed all the protocols as indicated by my health coaches. I follow your daily regimens as well. For the past three years, I have been getting salivary gland infections. My MD prescribes antibiotics each year and these take care of it after the ten days of treatment. I do not go to the doctor until they are so bad that I cry whenever I try to eat. These salivary gland stones/infections are very painful and I hate to have to take antibiotics. I ha e noticed that they occur in either August or September. This year I made it until October. I take the alkalizing vitamin C and the Hist Pro, but I did miss some days on the Hist Pro. I figure they are allergy related since they occur at the same time of year generally. My doctor isn’t very familiar with them and thinks I should see an ENT for possible surgery. I have searched all the podcasts and only found information on tonsil stones. Mine seem to be in the glands under my tongue, but the lymph gland on the left side of my neck enlarges first each time. Please help me!

Inga: Dear Dr.CabralI have another question about my baby .. he’s currently 16 months old and has never slept through the night. He wakes up 5-10 times a night! My pediatrician just said that’s what happens with breast fed babies . I find that hard to believe. He wakes up crying and wants to be fed he won’t take a bottle or pacifier. He co sleeps with my husband and I .. I have tried a sound machines, diffusing lavender, foods high in magnesium, and taking out gluten/ dairy from his diet. We tried getting him to sleep in his own crib hoping that would help and he cried hard for 5 nights each night in his crib .. I really don’t know what to do .. thank for any advice you can give me I really appreciate you and value your opinion. Inga

Daise: You talked about the importance of hormonal balance to burn fat as one of the 5 factors to burn fat. But you did not explain how to do that. Could you please explain the solution to this problem. How to balance your hormones? Are you saying fatlosity is the answer to this problem?

Meghan: Hello Dr Cabral, I have had incredible transformations through your protocols, now have an Integrative Health Baby, am an IHP 1 and currently enrolled in IHP 2 and will be one of your supporters for life.My question is regarding the product called Ion Gut Health which was created by Dr Zach Bush. The main ingredient is Terrahydrite® Tests showed it restores cellular tight cell junction integrity. ION*Gut Health supports the body’s production of beneficial enzymes through redox signaling (cellular communication) and promoting lysine production. Are you aware of this product and in terms of healing leaky gut and what are your thoughts about it? I know you are supportive of the ingredients within the healthy gut support product but keen to hear whether you have come across Terrahydrite in your research. Many thanks in advance

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!

He currently owns and operates Exodus Health Center in Kennesaw, Georgia. He is also the author of the best-selling book “SuperCharge Your Brain” the complete guide to radically improve your mood, memory and mindset and the SuperCharged Recipe book with over 180 full-color recipes to help you take back control of your health.

Dr. Jockers sees patients at his clinic, Exodus Health Center, to help customize specific lifestyle plans to help individuals improve performance and beat chronic disease. In this episode, Dr. Jockers opens the show by describing the inspiration behind his latest book, The Fasting Transformation. Next, Dr. Jockers reveals his favorite fasting facts. For instance, fasting is part of many religions and has been around since humans have existed. Dr. Jockers dives deep into fasting and explains how fasting will help you lose weight, the benefits of autophagy, and why you may want to switch from cow dairy to sheep or goat dairy. Plus, we speak about the importance of fasting for our digestive systems. / E P I S O D E S P ON S O R S PureForm Omega Plant Based Oils (Best Alternative to Fish Oil): Use ben4 for $4.00 off. ☕️ Purity Coffee: http//, use ketokamp at checkout for 10% off Text me the words KKP +1 (786) 364-5002 90 Detox Program with Ben Azadi, Dr Daniel Pompa, Dr Mindy Pelz: [01:00] About The Fasting Transformation * Jockers wanted to write a book about the transformational power of fasting. * Sadly, our society is metabolically damaged, causing us to be sick, exhausted, and overweight. * Luckily, fasting is the most ancient, inexpensive, and most powerful healing strategy known to humankind. * There are key strategies you need to know when it comes to fasting. * People need to be aware of everything when it comes to fasting in order to have success. * Every person on the planet should be fasting (unless you’re pregnant, a young child, or an elite athlete). * Fasting once a week will reduce metabolic disease massively. [02:25] Favorite Fasting Facts * Fasting is part of many religions. Spiritual people will practice fasting when they have challenges or when they have significant decisions that they need to make. * Also, fasting is some of the best medicine. * Throughout history, people have done fasting to hear from God, have greater levels of creativity, and achieve a higher level mentally. * Fasting isn’t a fad; it has been around since humans have existed. [04:35] Will Fasting Help You Lose Weight? * When you fast, your insulin goes down. * When insulin is high, it tells all the other hormones to stop burning fat. That way, your body can focus on burning sugar. Plus, your body will increase inflammation. * Throughout history, systemic infections have killed more people than anything else. So, the body created an inflammatory process to protect us against systemic infections. * Overall, the body creates inflammation in case your body needs to protect itself. To burn fat, we need periods of time where insulin is really low. The best way to do that is not to eat at all. * If we want more advanced weight loss, we may take a few days to keep insulin down by doing a five-day fast. [12:00] What Is Causing Your Insulin To Increase * Unfortunately, stress could be a massive contributor to insulin levels. * Poor sleep will also contribute to cortisol. Which will increase insulin levels. Cortisol inhibits insulin production to prevent glucose from being stored. * Plus, if you drink too much caffeine, that could be an issue. * Eating a lot of carbs can be a factor in your insulin increase. * However, every time you eat anything, there will be a small increase. [19:10] Switching From Cow Dairy To Sheep Or Goat Dairy * If you react to casein in dairy, then you may need to switch to sheep or goat dairy. * Many people can tolerate sheep or goat dairy. * If you think you have a sensitivity to cow dairy, then try and switch out your products. * Test it out for a month and see if you feel any better. * Everyone should take dairy out of their diet for one month of the year. That way, you can see if you notice a difference. [20:15] How Autophagy Works * Your brain and body will do well on intermittent fasting because of ketone production and autophagy. * The body needs energy. If we don’t get enough energy from our diet, then our body will get the energy from within our cells. * Our body knows the difference between an old cell and a new cell. * During autophagy, the body will break down old cells and creates stronger cells through recycled materials. * If you don’t take the trash out of your house, what would happen? You would get sick, and it would be awful! Well, we need to take out the trash in our bodies. [23:25] The Building Stage vs. The Cleansing Stage * Insulin will trigger building. We need a building stage because we need hormones and new cells. Also, we might want to build muscle – we need insulin for this. * When insulin is low, we are cleansing. During this stage, our cells will get rid of toxins. * Kids will need to be in the building stage more than the cleansing stage. Pregnant women need to be in the building stage too. * Most adults don’t need to constantly fuel their system. Instead, they need more time with low insulin than high insulin. [30:00] How Fasting Will Reset Your Digestive System * Fasting will take the stress off your gut. When you have gut problems, it’s like having a broken ankle. If you go out and walk every day on your broken ankle, it will never heal. * For the gut, you can fast for a period of time each day to reset your digestive system and heal your gut lining. * Fasting will reduce inflammation in your digestive system. [37:40] When Does Autophagy Start? * We don’t fully know. However, it will depend on your metabolic flexibility. * Other factors include sleep and stress. * Someone who is metabolic healthy can reach autophagy at sixteen to eighteen hours. * If you have high fasting insulin, you may need to fast for multiple days. [43:55] Extended Fasting Strategies * When you do an extended fast, you’ll get higher levels of autophagy. Plus, you’ll get a higher level of stem cells. * If you are battling chronic disease, it can be a powerful therapeutic strategy. * Doing a three-day fast once a year will help prevent chronic disease. * If you are underweight, doing a fast every three to four months may be a better strategy. [50:30] Fasting When Insulin Resistant * You need to lower insulin. When you lower insulin, you will have lower inflammation. * Fasting will help regenerate your insulin receptors. That way, your body will reset how much insulin it produces. AND MUCH MORE! Resources from this episode: * Jockers Website: * Follow Dr. Jockers * Facebook: * Instagram: * Twitter:…

[16:00] Healing Childhood Wounds * How his childhood growing up in Ukraine and coming to the USA at 4 years old has impacted his life. * Differences between work in Ukraine and the USA and how that shifted his parent's focus and ability to be there for him. * How being a latchkey kid from a young age created a lot of sadness as he felt like something was missing and he turned to himself when feeling alone. * What has been able to heal since becoming a father including the ability to better understand what his father went through for him. * The fact that he was dead for several minutes when he was 3 years old from Laryngitis and was saved with a tracheotomy. * Why his parents had such a strong need to protect him from any harm after his experience with Laryngitis but Aleks rebelled. * The work he does as a Level IV C.H.E.K Practitioner and Director of Athletic Programming & Rehabilitation at Primal Fusion. [26:30] How To Become A Great Man * How our thoughts can turn into emotions and then a physical expression of themselves. * Why he discusses his client's childhood and background with them first to understand their emotional intelligence barometer before focusing on the physical. * How he helps people find out what their main purpose in life is and what they are destined to do. * What specific steps he takes when doing an assessment for a new client and why it can take up to 3 hours or more. * Why health is deeper than just the physical body. * How we can heal the gaping holes in our physical, mental, and emotional selves. * Unpacking how every organ in the body has a physical, mental, and emotional process that it needs to go through. * Why it took a lot of violence from playing football for him to figure out how to be calm and balanced. [47:30] Inner Work For The Modern Man * How doing the inner work will help transform you from being a good man to a great man. * What people get wrong the most about men's work and what they should know about it. * Why many men only focus on improving one area of their lives but they need to look outside of themselves to truly grow. * The challenges he has faced in his embodiment to become a great man. * Why most people know what they want but don't know what they need. * Unique challenges he has faced as a father. * Exploring obstacles and experiences that most men go through even if they never become a father. * What his family has taught him about being a man and how it varies from household to household. * His relationship with his wife, Sara, both at home and at work as she is Primal Fusion's CEO. * How his upbringing impacted his relationship with Sara plus how he has grown since they first moved in together. * How the universe has shown him what he needs to be doing in life through injury. * Why his family has been so helpful in keeping him grounded and not working around the clock all day. * His advice for men who want to become a father someday and where they can begin their inner work journey. * Why having a detailed idea of what you want in a partner and knowing what you need from them as far as support will help you find them faster. [1:02:30] Taking Ownership & Responsibility For Your Life * The differences between taking ownership and being responsible. * Why it's so important to create a lifestyle that is based on your values and from a place of love. * How he makes sure that the choices he makes are done for the benefit of his relationships and family. * Why it's so important for men to have men's groups and have support from one another during their journeys. * What spiritual bypassing is and why people who are doing it won't truly be able to guide others. * Exploring the various groups that Aleks has led and how his experience doing it has evolved over the years. * How he figures out what he will do to guide an individual from a mentor standpoint based on their needs. * The 15 - minute pause practice Josh and his partner, Carrie Michelle, do whenever they feel triggered during a discussion or argument. * How not to let your biology and emotions overpower you when you are on edge. * Why giving up the idea to move and focusing on what's important, his family, led him and Sara to make their dream home possible. [1:14:30] What Men Are Actually Seeking In Life * Why all men are seeking a sense of grounding to know who they are, to truly feel and experience life, and to have the skills to practice awareness. * What inner work and growth examples have helped him the most to lead other men. * The importance of doing something from a place of true purpose rather than making money from something. * Exploring archetypes, processions, and what your true calling actually is. * Why his life journey from being in a relationship with Sara to becoming a personal trainer and studying with Paul Chek didn't make sense but it just f…

Looking back over life, Nikki realizes, “I was always either on or off a diet.”  In 2018, she found IF through carb cycling. She dabbled in it, but was't consistent. She read Delay, Don't Deny in 2019. In May of 2020, after her second pregnancy, Nikki went back to IF. She has lost 20 pounds, has a ton of energy and improved mental clarity, is more active, and no longer needs her afternoon latte! The advice Nikki would give to new IFers: "Be patient. The weight loss may not happen right away. Don't overthink it. It's a lifestyle, not a diet."   Get Gin’s books at, including her New York Times Bestseller, Fast. Feast.

Alan Christianson: The Simplest Way To Reverse Thyroid Disease
What is thyroid disease, exactly? What causes it? Can we even reverse thyroid disease? If so, how can we do that? In this episode of the Align Podcast, I have a conversation with Alan Christianson, where we discuss how the foods we choose to fuel our body can actually help reverse thyroid disease and how a healthy thyroid contributes to our immune system, our mental health, and our physical health. We then break down what is iodine, what are the optimal levels for human consumption, and what are the best resources we can refer to in order to ensure we are intaking the proper and recommended amount. We also pick Alan’s brain about emotions and how they can impact our overall wellbeing, his own personal practices of meditation and journaling, and we even touch upon epistemology! Alan Christianson is a Naturopathic Medical Doctor (NMD) who specializes in natural endocrinology with a focus on thyroid disorders. He is the author of The Metabolism Reset Diet and the New York Times bestselling book The Adrenal Reset Diet. He has been named a Top Doctor in Phoenix Magazine and has appeared on national TV shows and in numerous print media.
