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:
Buffie: Hi. I have been diagnosed with a uterine fibroid (10mm by 7 mm). I am a 51 year old woman and am approaching menopause. Is there any certain test or lab you recommend that I complete? I’m not sure where to start with this. Also, do you have any dietary recommendations? I eat mostly a plant-based diet, but do have chicken or beef on occasion (I don’t like fish at all). I only recently found you on YouTube and have been listening/watching your show as much as possible.
J.M.: Hi Dr. Cabral! Firstly, thank you for everything that you do – your podcast has helped me so much and I always recommend my fmaily and friends listen to you to get their queries on their health answered. I have experienced very mild hair loss that I noticed after a very stressful time in my life, my trichologist advised I had telogen effluvium however it was combined with redness, scaling and itchy symptoms. my dermatologist suggested some creams/ointments/shampoos etc to try first. Eventually (this being approximately 2 years ago) symptoms went away and I assumed it was a bout of inflammation due to stress. Now it has returned so I decided to go through with the biopsy and it showed i have Lichen Planopilaris. Can you shed light on how i can manage this condition and prevent hair loss
Jasmine: Hi Dr. Cabral! First of all, thank you so much for all the free knowledge you provide to the world. I feel so empowered to take on health issues autonomously because of you and the information and trustworthy products you provide. My question is about topical retinol skincare products. These can be OTC or prescribed by a derm, which would namely be Tretinoin. I have seen so many people have incredible results with retinol/vit-a derivatives. It almost seems too good to be true. What are the side effects, if any? Is it safe to use? Thank you!
Emma: Hi Dr Cabral Thank you so much for everything you do! My question is regarding the DUTCH hormone test. I have heard you say that you don’t use it, and that it isn’t as reliable as the saliva test, which I completely understand and respect. However I hear many functional medicine practitioners and doctors who do use it say why they love it, and the main reason being that they can see which pathways certain estrogens are going down (2OH, 4OH, 16OH) Eg- they may see that E1 and E2 are going down the 4OH pathway (being associated with DNA damage and breast cancer) and methylation. Isn’t there benefit of knowing that information to then dive deeper into why that’s happening as opposed to the saliva test which doesn’t show that information? Thank You!
David: Good morning, I’d like to get some info on using Serrapeptase for reducing high blood pressure. Thank you.
Chris: Hi doctor Cabral. Absolutely love anything you are doing for the world. I just have a question regarding silica dust. I work in construction and although I do everything I can to prevent inhaling the dust, it is extremely hard to keep myself from breathing in some dust every day. I know how deadly silicosis can be and was wondering if there were ways that I could help rid the body of any built up silica dust in my lungs? I was also wondering if there was a lab/test that would indicate if I had high levels of silica in my body? Thanks for everything you do
