HouseCall: Hot Car vs. Sauna, Low Leptin Levels, Hyperparathyroidism, Easing Parkinson’s Symptoms, R-CPD
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:
Carol: Can staying in a hot car get similar benefits to sauna? Hot cars are common. Saunas are not. Since it’s summer, cars get hot. Can I get similar benefits to sauna by staying in a hot car? How would I modify the temperature in the car?
Alicja: Hi Dr.Cabral, I hope you are doing well. I have question about Leptin hormone. I’m 40yo, BMI 18. I recently put on 15 lbs (I was underweight before) I noticed it is very difficult for me to get full. When I’m done eating my meals, I keep going back to kitchen for more food, because I still feel hungry. Sometimes it feels like I need to eat half of my kitchen to finally satisfy my hunger. I recently run some lab tests. They showed that my leptin levels are out of range, very very low. How can I balance my leptin levels? I’m happy with my current weight and don’t want to put on any more lbs. My diet is very clean and I’m very active physically. I hope you have some advice for me. Thank you in advance for all your help.
Jennifer: I searched your podcasts for hyperparathyroidism. Didn’t find any. For 12-13 years now my PTH has been 225-370. My serum calcium is low-low normal and my Vitamin D is 40-70. Hx insomina, worsening severe chronic constipation and brain fog/memory, vision that is more blurry but eye dr says it isn’t changing, fatigue. Hx Stage III Lobular Breast Cancer (Dx in 3/2012) and 1 month after my bilateral hysterectomy and complete hysterectomy (so 5/2012) my PTH actually dropped to 81. However, 3-6 months later it was quite elevated again. Has your program helped anyone in my situation?? I’ve been to so many doctors, homeopaths, herbalists and no changes. Need help! Thank you for your time!!
Karen: My mother is 74 and was diagnosed with Parkinson’s around 2.5 years ago. She is still fully capable of moving around (albeit with some pain from Parkinson’s and Rheumatoid Arthritis) and she started seeing a trainer around 9 months ago who has really helped her. What other things can we try to help minimise the onset of Parkinson’s symptoms both physically (the shakes combined with Arthitis) and mentally (eg anxiety and depression)?
Terra: Hi, Dr. Cabral! Thank you for everything you do. My question is about R-CPD. I was wondering if you’ve heard of it? Basically I cannot burp. The only way to relieve the pressure is to stick my hand down my throat and press down on my sphincter. It causes tremendous discomfort and I think contributes to issues digesting and absorbing nutrients. I brought this up to a health coach and they seemed to dismiss this, but after filtering through all my issues, this seems to be the root cause. As of now the only treatment I know of is for a doctor to inject botox to paralyze the sphincter so you can retrain the muscle. So, my question is, what do you think is the best way to go about this? Is there alternative solutions? Or is the botox the best and safest way? Thanks!
