HouseCall: Dupuytren’s Contracture, Rheumatic Fever, Morning Bloat, Non-Toxic Lotion, Low Estrogen in Women
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:
Rosemary: Asking for help for all who have (what supplements etc.,) for Dupuytren’s Contracture (this from the internet) is a common problem that develops most frequently after age 40. It is more common in men than women, though both can be affected. It is usually hereditary occurring in people of European and Western Asian ancestry. It is unusual in Oriental or African-Americans. Dupuytren’s usually starts as a painless nodule in the palm. It can progress to fibrous cords extending into the fingers, most commonly ring and little. These bands can cause contracture of the fingers. It can progress slowly or rapidly. The flexor tendons are not affected.
Kerry: Hi DR Cabral, What you you advise to support a 8 yr old how has had rheumatic fever and now has been prescribed daily antibiotics till their 21st birthday. Your advice is so appreciated
Jason: I’m wondering what you recommend as a sunscreen that’s not toxic to the body. I’m looking for something you can use multiple times a day with summer coming up.. thank you
Aston: Hi Dr. Cabral, I know you like to like to talk about doing things that support the body’s natural detox process. Even with a good diet of mainly plant based foods with some fish and a good exercise of Pilates and yoga, I still will wake up sometimes very bloated/puffy. I have been into using jade rollers, dry brushing and foam rolling to help out my lymphatic system and it does seem to help a bit. I was wondering if there was a way to prevent the puffiness and what your thoughts are on these “trendy” tools. Thanks!
Katie: Hi Dr. Cabral! I’ve heard all your podcasts focused on estrogen dominance and your recommendations, but I was wondering if you could talk about low estrogen in women (who are too young to be going through menopause). Do you see this a lot in your practice? I’ve had extensive hormone testing done (both convention endocrinologists and integrative practioners) and my estrogen levels are consistently low, even when considering the progesterone ratio. I know you can’t make specific recommendations for me, but I was hoping you could spend some time discussing why this happens to some young women and what your suggestions are. What are the negative symptoms of low estrogen? How to balance these hormones? I think this would be really great for a lot of us struggling to find answers about our hormones when there is so much information out there is about pacifying too high of estrogen… but sometimes its the opposite issue! If you search up seed cycling for examples, so many articles and testimonials are about how it was aimed to cure their estrogen dominance and regulate their cycle. I know you mentioned that seed cycling could also help menopausal women with low estrogen, and that most women can benefit from it, but if you have any more to say on the topic (low estrogen in young women) I think there’s a lot of us who would love to hear your insights. side note: all other markers (cortisol, pituitary mri, FHS, thyroid) came back totally well and good. Haven’t had a period in 2 years, not on BC, on ultra sounds a lot of follicles present so I have been left with the “mild PCOS” diagnosis and very little options other than ‘not to worry’ because i will be able to have kids some day and that ‘there’s always the pill’ if I’m that concerned about mensturating regularly (which is definitely not an option for me ha). I have been really struggling with my health the past two years, so much so I had to take time off from college (academics are so important to me so this was a really big blow) and has had a huge impact on my mental and emotional help. I have been treated for parasites, eat a super healthy diet, and am currently following you CBO protocol. Without getting into EVERYthing I have tried and done (much like your journey, its been a wild ride), I guess I’m wondering if this hormonal imbalance really could all be related to stress and my emotional state (despite stress hormones being in normal range) that have resulted from all my gut and digestive issues. Thanks so much for all the information you share with us, I love learning as much as I possibly can to get to the bottom of this, and the podcast is so full of value, it’s truly amazing how much you offer free of charge. Thank you. best, Katie!
