2333: Squinting Eye, Staying True, Deuterium Depletion, Hormonal Acne, Where to Start, Low T3 Syndrome (HouseCall)

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…


Richard: Hello Dr. Cabral! Hope you are having a great day. The issue I have is a bit weird, but basically whenever I smile my left eye looks like it gets smaller. It looks just like I am squinting with my left eye only. The bigger my smile is the more pronounced the squint becomes. It has been like this for about the last 10 years or so. I didn't even know this was occurring until I saw it in pictures. All my pictures within the last 10 years are like this and it's terrible, because people sometimes think I'm drunk and if my smile is really big then it looks like my eye is completely shut which ruins the pictures. The chiropractor that I was seeing several years ago said that my face was crooked and he was literally adjusting my face, pressing on my face around my nose and orbital area. Is my face being crooked a possibility? I should also say that I have Hashimotos and other imbalances which I am currently working on. Could this be a reason? Thank you so much for doing this and all your help, you are much appreciated!!


Gemma: Hey Dr Cabral, I'm a long time listener of your podcast, I think the work you do is amazing. I think the sooner functional health becomes a mainstream approach the sooner people will be healthier and happier for most of their lives. I'm truly inspired by IHPs and it is my mission to become one. My question is, how can we your listeners help to improve an outsiders view to the integrative health approach? For example another pharmacist, probably relevant that he's my ex, dismissed me as 'adopting homeopathy'. It's a shame that the vast majority of people miss out on this treatment because our NHS doesn't really acknowledge it, yet. Can I be of help? A second avenue of thought; have any researchers approached you so they perform studies on your data (obviously with patient permission and personal information redacted) ? I would love to studies more commonplace so as to get the support needed for IHP to become more mainstream. All the best from our home to yours Gemma


Tiffany: Dr. Cabral, This is the first time I have submitted a question because your podcasts are such a wealth and thorough collection of information. I appreciate your authentic, generous and informed opinions, greatly. However, I have not been able to find any info. on deuterium or deuterium depletion. Is this a real thing or a scam, in your opinion. Thank you kindly!


Lorena: Hi Doc! I'm 25 and I've been having real issues with my skin. I get a lot of spots around my cheek before ovulation and it's weird how much it calms down after ovulation. I ran the OAT & Stress, Sleep & Hormones test. Funnily enough, no candida or bacteria and I thought I had estrogen dominance but no! Pg/E2 Ratio of 204! Testosterone & DHEA was also balanced. The only thing that was off was my cortisol (low throughout the day and high at night). But why is the acne calming down after ovulation if my hormones are fine? So confused right now. Hopefully you can shed some light to see if there is anything that I'm missing.


Christine: Hello - I am really enjoying your podcast! My daughter introduced me to it . My question is - where do I begin?? I don’t have a lot of money or I would order all the supplements , detoxes and the labs—- however money is an issue. So where do I start if I want to get healthy? Thank yo


Melissa: Hi Dr. Cabral… I suffer from low T3 syndrome (self diagnosed), often compared to hypothyroidism as it has all the same symptoms, which I have. I have suffered from this for nearly a decade and haven’t been able to get support or confirmed prognosis from any doctor, only that my levels are “mostly” normal, which they are not as I have low T3 levels. I’m at my breaking point and want to feel better in my own skin. I enjoy working out, being active, and I eat healthy, but I’m getting burnt out killing myself with exercise and continuously having to lower my caloric intake with little to no results, or really, just to maintain my weight. What can I do to get my levels normal so I can enjoy life and overall just feel good daily?
