Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend!

I’m looking forward to sharing with you some of our community’s questions that have come in over the past few weeks…

Let’s get started!   

Simon: Hello and thank you Dr Cabral! We are expecting our second baby in late November and I am preparing for six-plus months of reduced and interrupted sleep with additional stress. I'm wondering what your best recommendations are for preparing for, and dealing with, this taxing time? My main concerns are impacts on energy and focus (at work, exercising, and being a good father), as well as general health and not reversing my last 12 months healing from chronic IBS-D. I've listened to all your podcasts on adaptogens and figure a maintenance dose of stress-reliving supplements like Adrenal Sooth, swapping with or adding energy-boosting supplements like Adrenal Energy Support on days when I need more energy and focus at work? What do you think of Korean and American ginseng for energy also?Are there any supplements or practices that benefit sleep when you know it will be frequently interrupted?Many thanks!

Simon: Hello Dr Cabral, Simon here again! As above I am preparing for a period of reduced sleep and increased stress when our second baby arrives. I normally like to train frequently (mix of weights, calisthenics, yoga and cardio) and do want to keep fit over this period, however I am cautious not to impact my overall health and energy by adding additional stress to on my body and waring myself out. How would you approach exercise over this period? I am a Vata/Pita body type.

Samantha: Hi Dr Cabral!Do you ever use Chaste tree in your practice for pms symptoms and/or to help stimulate progesterone in someone with estrogen dominance?Thank you so much! I just completed the big 5 labs and am working with one of your health coaches. :) Thank you again for all you do. I have learned so much through your podcasts and wouldn't be where I am today without you.

Jessica: Hey Dr. Cabral, thanks for all you do! I am a healthy 36 year old female. For the past few years I have had two issues that I have tried to fix with a healthy diet and a decent amount of supplements that I take daily with no help. Firstly, I have horizontal ridges in my nails that are worst/deepest/sometimes only in my thumbs (which can get uncomfortable almost painful at times). Secondly, I lose a lot of hair, like a ton when I get out of the shower. Not sure if these items are related but they are both very frustrating. I workout every day (running or HIIT), I am vegan and gluten free, not really stressed, I've taken a food sensitivity test, and I take a bunch of vitamins daily. Any idea what could be causing this to happen? Thanks so much.

Marissa: Hi Dr. Cabral. I’m hoping you can do a podcast or provide some advice on “red skin syndrome” aka topical steroid withdrawal. I’ve been withdrawing from corticosteroids for about 5 months now and am more than ready to be healed completely. Do you have any advice how I can speed up the process?

Chris: Hi Dr Cabral,I have a perplexing situation that I hope you can shed some light on. This summer, my husband who has no known allergies, went for a run outside and after coming home and starting the cool down process, he broke out in hives all over his body, from head to toe. His face swelled up as well as his tongue (although no trouble breathing) and became super itchy on certain parts of his body. He took Bendadryl and a Pepcid AC (as prescribed by his sister, a nurse) and the reaction slowly went away over about a period of an hour or so. This happened twice during the heat. We assumed it was heat rash or he swiped against a bush and had a reaction to it, but then it just happened again in mid-October in Chicago on a very cool day. The only common denominator we can think of is that the night before he drank some beers and then went for a run the next day, however this would be odd to have a reaction when he's had beers several times throughout his adult life and then exercised the following day with no issues. He is 40 yrs old, in great shape with no known medical issues besides psorasis {for which he takes a monthly injection :(}. What could be causing this strange reaction? Thank you.

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!
