HouseCall: Metabolic Rate, Look Pregnant After Meals, High TSH, Low EMF Sauna, Fenugreek Oil, Breast Augmentation, OCD & Hormones
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!
Staci: Have you heard of the device Lumen? If so, what is your opinion on it? I am in good shape, eat well, do not need to lose weight but feel I’m not getting the most out of my food/exercise. I follow an intermittent fasting/carb cycling eating plan but thinking it might be too limiting for my workout schedule and 112, 5’6” build. I’m researching the Lumen device to see if this would help me better learn to intuitively eat by teaching me my Metabolic readings. Your opinion would be greatly appreciated.
Ken: Dear Dr. Cabral, I’m a 79 year old man, still very active and feel quite healthy. I always had some distension after most meals, but for the last two years my abdomen feels consistently distended – I look like I’m 3 months pregnant! Is it safe for me to take probiotics to see if it helps? All the fad media keeps trying to sell probiotics as a magic pill for bloating. But I remember you said something like if you have gut issues, you wouldn’t want to take probiotics until you fix those issues. Thank you for your help to clarify this. My wife and I love listening to your podcast!
Molly: Dear Dr. Cabral, I completed the CBO protocol and finisher this March, and have been taking the foundational protocol supplements for almost one year now. My TSH for the last 25 years has been around 3.5, which I only learned through you that this is very high. For the last 6 months I’ve taken EN’s thyroid support, but when I recently did EN’s thyroid-adrenal test, my TSH is now higher at 4.3 (with all other hormones tested in this lab being normal, including cortisol). I’m really confused because I don’t know what is causing my thyroid issue if I’ve tested everything (including iron and ferritin), and everything else is normal. I personally feel great and the only symptoms I have are scaling skin on my shins and mild hair loss. Is there anything I’m missing? I would rather get to the root cause instead of taking glandulars. Also, how long could someone like me be on the thyroid support capsules? How would I know it’s working or not? Thank for any guidance you can share – I appreciate you so much! – Molly
Greg: Hi! Thank you for EVERYTHING you do.I am looking to purchase a 15w max infrared sauna for my home. (To go in the “office” it is more important!) Please let me know which one you recomend as some are not “healthy” and I want to make sure I am doing more harm than good! Semi on a budget.Thank you!!
Pam: Hello Dr. Cabral, I read that fenugreek oil is used in ayurveda along with a breast massage to help women with sagging or smaller breasts. Is this a safe oil for me to use in this way, considering I’m 49 and don’t have estrogen dominance, since it has phytoestrogens? And would you consider consuming fenugreek seeds safe for the same issue? Thank you! You are my health guru and I value your opinion greatly!
Michael: I am local to Boston. Do you do take in-house appointments?
Tayla: Hello,I am currently looking to get my breast implants removed. I have done DCD and protocols etc and tests but still seem to not regain optimal health.I am in the process of consulting with surgeons and one has recommended fat transfer – they liposuction fat from different sites like thighs and “clean the fat” and then place it into your natural breast tissue..Does Dr Cabral have any opinions on this ?Some people have said they are fine (recovery is brutal) and others have said that they have lumpy breast tissue now which makes doing a breast check complicated.And I’m unsure as it has only been in Australia for about 12 years now but it was recommended as apparently I will have a concave chest wall until my ribs pop back out in maybe 6-12months.. and I won’t look “as deformed”I’m thinking it’s okay because it’s my own body fat ?But at the same time, toxins accumulate in your fat ..?But if it is washed would it be safe ?Thank you for all that you do 🙂
Savanna: Dr Cabral- I found your work a year ago and my health has improved so much. Physically I am feeling so much better(My fibromyalgia, migraines , UTIs have almost completely gone away!!) thank you! However, mentally I still struggle(I have been battling OCD for over ten years). I have taken the organic acids, food sensitivity & heavy metals test and done the detox and those protocols. I notice my ocd gets worse around the week before I begin my menstrual cycle. My question is should I take the hormone lab or the neurotransmitter test?(if I can only do one). Second question is : my ocd and depression were quite terrible during my first pregnancy and I am hoping to get pregnant soon. Is there anything I can do while pregnant this time, to better manage my mental health by using supplements for my hormones if it is hormone related? Hope that makes sense-hoping to have a smoother pregnancy than last time. Thanks again for your podcast!
