HouseCall: Small Red Bumps, Ganglion Cyst, High Homocysteine, Dry Skin Patches, Breast Cancer, Herxheimer Reaction
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:
John: Hi Dr. Cabral! I occasionally get small red bumps near the last joint on my fingers (often close to the bed of the nail). They don’t hurt but can sometimes itch. I suspect that these could be from a food intolerance, although i haven’t pinned down any food that may be causing them. I’m wondering if you’ve come across this before, and if you have any answers for what may be causing this, as I’ve gotten these on and off for most of my life. Thank you!
Lucy: Hi Dr. Cabral! My stepmom is suffering from a ganglion cyst on her palm. It’s not bad yet but she’s had surgery to remove them before and they keep coming back. I did a search on your podcast and didn’t see anything so would love to see if there are natural remedies for treating and preventing ganglion cysts! Thanks for all that you do!
Lisa: Hi Dr. Cabral, First I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being someone I can trust to help me sift through all of the information out there on health, fitness, longevity and wellness. You’re the best! A few years ago I started seeing a functional medicine practitioner. She tested my homocysteine levels which came back at a whopping 87! I am an otherwise very healthy 50 year old woman. I have tried various protocols to get my homocysteine levels down, and have been successful supplementing with very high doses of methylated folate, B12, TMG, etc. However, I am extremely sensitive to these methyl donors and become extremely agitated, angry, and anxious, so although the homocysteine drops to a 12 I am absolutely miserable. So I’ve stopped taking methylated Bs and the levels rise back up to the mid 40’s. Is there any protocol you recommend to those of us with MTHFR SNPs who are struggling with hyperhomocysteinemia? Thanks so much for all you do. With gratitude, Lisa
Anna: Hello Dr Cabral, I’m wondering if you can give me some advice regarding my daughter Florentine. She has a patch of dry/red skin (the dryness and the redness fluctuates) at the base of her neck. Also a small dry/pink patch on her arm. She has had these patches since she was about 2 months old and she is now 7 months. She is unaware of them. I saw a naturopath and have since eliminated dairy from my diet. This Friday will be a month without dairy and I don’t think there has been any change. How long should I give it to be sure that dairy is/isn’t causing the skin irritation?Kindest regards, Anna
Janine: Hi Dr. Cabral, A few weeks ago I sent in a question for you about a recent cancer diagnosis. It is my second breast cancer diagnosis in eight years. I am extremely healthy and was really perplexed about why I was getting sick again. I thought maybe from having meat in my diet, and stress?…..Since then I had genetic testing done and I tested positive for the BRCA2 gene mutation. So I think my question has been answered!
Liesl: Hello, Can you tell me all of the things that I can do to open my detox pathways (with no gallbladder and no exercise) that will not cause a detox/herx reaction? I’ve been stuck in this loop of being too sick to get well since 2003. Everything I’ve tried has made me too sick to continue. Thank you! Liesl
