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