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:
Nicole: Hi Dr. C! I have an Oura ring and get quite a lot of deep sleep, far above the average. Most nights I get over 3 hours of deep and it averages about 40% + of my sleep. I get normal amounts of rem, but was curious why I would get so much deep sleep. I am active and go to sleep around 9:30 most nights. Is there any negative reasons as to why my body would need so much deep sleep, or is it just more of a good thing? Thank you!!
Alicja: Dr. Cabral, I love your podcast and your wisdom, my question is about sauna. If you could have sauna in your house, would you choose infrared sauna or regular dry sauna? I’m asking because I just bought a house and will make some changes to it. I want to add a sauna and I’m not sure if IFR sauna would be better than regular dry sauna. Thanks in advance for your answer.
Tina: It’s 4 AM and I’m wide awake! I went to bed around 9:30 PM and between then and now I literally woke up about 8 different times. I 53 years old and I did the big five labs plus the gut and parasite test. My hormones are low, I did the 14 day functional detox, a liver and gallbladder flush, and currently I am five weeks into the CBO protocol. I’m also six weeks into the protocol that my IHP level two gave me to follow. I’m doing adrenal soothe, adrenal energy, DHEA, The deep sleep protocol, magnesium, etc., I’m following my protocols and I’m having very little to no relief. I did two different parasite cleanses. I did the mold test and I have zero mold in my body. I don’t know what’s going on with me. I just need to sleep! I am unplugging two hours before sleep. I’m doing deep breathing and meditation almost daily. I’m doing theta healing with a health practitioner to calm my sympathetic nervous system because my cortisol levels are all messed up. My cortisol is at its high right before I go to sleep at night and in the morning it’s very low.I’m lost at this point and I don’t know what to do. Of course I will keep going with my protocols and after 12 weeks I’m supposed to test my hormones again to see where my levels are. I just don’t understand why I wake up at least 10 times a night.
Amy: After having C VIRUS 8 months ago, I noticed my underarm odor got a very strong “onion” smell. Previously, I had very light, to no, body odor. I haven’t changed anything in my diet (I don’t eat a ton of onions or garlic) or supplements. What could be causing this? I’m a healthy, 38 yr old female. Thanks!
Jo: Hello Dr. Cabral, My 12 year old daughter recently had blood test done and showed her DHEA elevated. It was 200 above their normal range and her prolactin was 2 above average range. She also has a noticeable mustache and hair on the upper and lower parts of her back (thin but noticeable). She started her cycle at 9 and still has irregular cycles. Curious as to what you would recommend for this. Can not get into an endocrinologist until July. Thank you.
Briana: Hi Dr. Cabral! I searched the podcast archive for fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) and found no results on the topic. Very interested to hear your thoughts/opinion on the procedure. Specifically in regards to how it may (or may not) benefit individuals with autism spectrum disorder. Thank you!!
