HouseCall: Menstrual Cycle Fasting, Fibrocystic Breasts, Child CBD Dosage, Inflammation in Sinuses, CRP Testing
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!
Cindy: I’m hoping to begin easing into a 24-hour fast/ one day reset diet once or twice a month. I’ve been doing the 12-hour overnight fasting for a couple weeks now and feeling calmer, but I’m hoping to add in extra autophagy benefit from an at least monthly 24 hour fast/one day reset. I’m a nursing mom so can’t do the quarterly detox yet. I’m wondering if Dr. Cabral has recommendations on the timing of the 24-hour fast as it relates to a woman’s fertility cycle? No artificial hormones here, and my cycles are pretty regular with a shorter luteal phase since I’m still returning to full fertility after my last pregnancy.I think I remember Dr. Cabral saying that progesterone is a precursor to cortisol, which I think I have chronically high levels of (working on it!). But I’ve also seen research showing that fasting can interrupt the hormones that tip off follicle stimulation preceding ovulation, so the estrogen-dominant part of the cycle might not be best either. I’ve ordered the OAT and HTMA and will complete those this week probably.Any help would be appreciated.
Sonja: Hi Dr. Cabral,First of all I’d like to thank you for being a great teacher, for founding the IHP Institute, and sharing your knowledge! I have come very far health wise, I’m very grateful for my health, but I’m stuck with one issue, being fibrocystic breasts.I’ll list the labs and protocols I’ve done, to give an overview what I’ve tried yet. I ran the big 5 labs in November 2018, completed CBO protocol, gut rebuilding protocol, and parasite protocol (right now doing the advanced parasite protocol). Have done 21 day detox, 2x 7 day detox and 14 day detox in 2019. Mostly dairy and gluten free (right now following the sensitive gut guide), have worked on stress reduction, and feeling great stress wise. Weaned off AED and progesterone cream, and my current supplement regimen is: CBD, DNS, DFVB, vitamin C, B- Complex, Omega 3, Magnesium, collagen, probiotics, vitamin D, astaxanthin, estrogen balance and adrenal energy. Will soon wean down the adrenal energy, since cortisol levels were nearly perfect, when I ran a TAH in August. Thyroid function was great, progesterone was perfect, however estrogen was high. I have used DIM, evening primrose oil, Chasteberry, and vitamin E for hormone balance before, over an extended period of time, but weaned the supplements down about 6-10 months ago.When I started the estrogen balance again, I was quite sure the FB would subside as well, but it got worse. Fibrocystic and painful, almost immediately after ovulation, and during the entire luteal phase. I wondered, if molecular iodine could be the answer to this issue. However discussing in IHP, I got the recommendation to rather try a systemic enzyme, serrapeptase or nattokinase. We saw there’s also research on it, but didn’t find much regarding dosage. Have you tried any of these for this specific issue, and would you have some insight regarding timespan and dosage? Or would your recommendation be entirely different? Thank you so much!
Nikki: Hi my name is Nikki and I have a 2 year old daughter who we are looking to get her started on CBD oil. I noticed that your site was sold out, I was wondering if it would be coming back or if it is still the situation that Dr. Cabral can not sell it at this time. I was also wondering if you provide proper dosing for CBD oil in kids. I would be interested in setting up a consult with Dr. Cabral to see my two year old, if that is possible. She is a child who is diagnosed with syndrome, she has been on a ventilator for the last year. She also has gut motility issues, seizures (which are controlled with meds) and low tone. Any help I can get would be so much appreciated.Thank You in advance, Nikki
Michael: Hi Dr. Cabral,Thank you for all that you do. I finally found my North Star with health once I discovered the rain barrel effect.I’m 30 years old. I’ve been on L2 foundational protocol for a while. I’ve never done any FM lab tests but definitely suspect gut issues as I’ve dealt with constipation/IBS my entire life and grew up on bagel bites and fruit roll ups.Question: on my bloodwork I had elevated bilirubin. Doctor calls it Gilbert’s syndrome. Sometimes the whites of my eyes can be a bit yellow. I don’t want to be like Gilbert. Please help.Second question: I have a mild case of tinnitus. I used to play in bands a lot when I was younger and probably damaged my hearing pretty badly. I feel like I always want to pop my ears. Every time I make the yawning gesture I can hear the popping in my ears. I feel like I’m experiencing some hearing loss as well. Almost feels like inflammation in my sinuses or ear canals.I’m going to either test with the OAT/HTMA or just jump right into the cbo protocol.Any advice is much appreciated!
Judy: Do you offer or plan to offer a C-reactive protein (CRP) with coaching? My medical provider doesn’t offer it.
