and then we’re going to pick ten commentersto win that book and we’re going to send it to you so with that being said we’regoing to rush over to the content in the section and first we’re going to jump intofive natural rectifies of menopause take it away all right so menopause is reallya life change that all women experience and we’ll get into the definition alittle bit later but you know countless people can think of it as a catastrophic endto their fertility and sexuality and youth but genuinely you know it doesn’thave to be that behavior and so that’s a little bit what we’re going to talkabout today with Dr.Cabeca so the manifestations of menopause can beuncomfortable and although you know prescription hormone replacings andthings like that can be helpful there are at home remedies that you can try tokind of ease some of those symptoms that you’re going through so the first onethat we’re going to talk about is ginseng and ginseng is readily availablein health food stores and online mostly it can be used to increaseenergy increase your resilience to stress during menopause it helps preventdepression distres hot flashes and even cognitive expense so the second one isorganic commons and we talk about this all the time so best one of the bestthings you can do for your form during menopause is to feed it well and soadding you are well aware added veggies into your diet simply to get all thoseextra antioxidants in can really help your body manage your desire it canhelp with the aging process and it can help to balance your hormonesso that’s super important and then I’ll just jump in with this one withDr.Cabeca is she does have a parks and so we’ll go over that a little bitmore but if you click the clause in the description it’ll actually take you overand we’ll talk a little more about that in the commodity itself and I’m sureDr. Cabeca will talk about it as well but it’s called Mighty Maca and it’savailable on her website and also on Amazon as well yeah so just jump intonumber three and then the third one is vitamin D so when you’re going throughmenopause your form causes less estrogen and this can lead to a vitaminD deficiency which represents you more prone to developing osteoporosis andtruthfully most of us are walking around vitamin D insufficient anyway so it’s agreat mind to supplement with vitamin D for most people the fourth one is blackcohosh and this is a natural ameliorate that’s been used by women for a verylong time for menopause for symptoms of PMS it helps to regulate your metabolismyour sexual office your sleep your attitude all that good trash so it can bereally helpful during menopause and then the fifth one is yoga and this is my favorite yeah I represent it’s a it’s a great relaxation procedure it’s greatexercise it helps to you know balance your climate and all of that so yoga isreally important and exercise in general when you’re going through menopauseso let’s actually take a step back and we’re going to actually talk about themenopause definition and what is menopause so menopause is basicallya phase that a woman’s mas goes through where it’s all of the symptoms that theyexperience just before or after menstruation stops so menopause actuallymarks the end of a woman’s reproductive hertz or menstrual cycle and you know aswomen our ovaries induce estrogen and progesterone but we have a limitednumber of eggs in our ovaries and formerly those eggs are depleted your ovaries youknow just stop making all of those you know all the estrogen and progesteronethat’s needed to have a baby and so when all of that is finished then menopausekind of comes into play and it can cause a lot of different fluctuating hormoneslike I said and lots of other different signalings andsymptoms so some of the things that you might notice if you’re in perimenopausejust before menopause or if you’re actually in menopause our vaginaldryness erratic seasons you know hot flashes shiverings night sweats sleepingproblems mood converts cool hearts and surface reducing whisker force gain all of thosethings might be things that you notice when you go through menopause so let’sjump into when does menopause start and what is the average age of onset somenopause frequently starts anywhere between 45 and 55 years old feel theaverage age in the U.S is 51 years old right now and then how long doesmenopause generally previous it can last-place you know ordinarily on average about three tofour years on the short extremity a couple months on the long expiration you know 10 to 13 times ish okay huge so this is The Dry Eye testify I’m Dr.Travis Zigler and I’mDr. Jenna Zigler and today we’re talking about menopause andwe’re actually going over everything to do with menopause as far as thedefinition the signs of symptoms and natural remedies and we are actuallyinterviewing Dr. Anna Cabeca today and we’re actually going to bring her onright now so Dr. Cabeca is a triple boardcertified Emory University trainedphysician and hormone professional who is diagnosed with early menopause at theage of 38 and so with that being said she was devastated by the menopause andso she went on a wellness outing to reverse her menopause sideeffects whichresulted in her give of a healthful baby girlfriend at the age of 41 whom we justmet and so that was very exciting so after event her own healthsuccesses Dr. Cabeca began counseling others eventually modifying the lives ofthousands ladies across the globe her new journal The Hormone Fix again if youcomment below we’re going to select ten commenters to winthat journal and we’re going to send that to them and then other empoweringtransformation programs have helped women of all ages become their bestselves again her successful cable of allnatural products boasting thealkaline super foods drink mighty maca plus which we mentioned a little earlierand then the regenerate ointment Julva so with that being said Dr.Cabeca tell listeners a little about yourself and what compiles you such apassionate propose for women’s health thank you thank you for thatintroduction and it’s great to be here with you guys and your viewso you are well aware I considered that the biggest thing that drives me is the fact thatI’ve watched so many dames suffer I suffered myself with no answers even inmy doctor’s pocket I didn’t have the answers and I recognized my momma suffer shesuffered from her mid to late 30 s on through at age the senility younger than I amnow she necessary cardiac bypass surgery and so at 50 when she was 52 it wasdetermined that she needed cardiac bypass surgery and and I watched hersuffer another 15 years to die prematurely at senility 67 certainly strugglingand I’ve seen in my clinical practice other women struggle you know start tofollow that same move and I said you know this is not how God proposed us tolive privilege this is not by design our body is the temple of our character so youknow I you know where are the answers and that was part of my outing thattook me around the world looking for answers to solve my own quagmire and andand to recover from that totally overruling minimum you don’t talk aboutthat we don’t talk about that in medicine and med clas reversemenopause what and then in 48 I had a second you know I is entered into menopauseagain at age 48 and that’s when I really under you know I certainly dug in okay nowthis hormonal switch here I am again also I switch menopause again soso I contemplate the issue is two really big you know influences in my life to say okay wecan restore health you know our ovaries are already beginning creating hormones again rightand an understanding why they’re being shut down I know numerous you are well aware andthe that’s the story of so many wives right and I exactly affection everythingthat you’re doing in this room and our audience is going to benefit a lot fromthis interview and then also make sure you guys pick up The Hormone Fix by herbecause it’s going to change the acces you look at menopause but it’s also going tohelp with your cool look and so with dry heart it’s also hormonal very hormonalrelated so we’re going to jump in to hormones so let’s talk about hormones Igot it oh my gosh I have to tell you Travis so yesterday I came this in themail you know this book is it’s a soft emulate and this is UK published inthe UK and it’s already on Amazon UK I was with us UK reigning the health spacefor women yes neat you’d like that so I desire that let’s talk about hormones Iwant to talk about what they are and how do they influence our state and how dothey convert as we age yeah yeah surely and this is where it’s reallycritical the hormone connection to dry looks and that’s why I was really happyto talk to your community because that’s something patients would complain aboutyou know these dry hearts in the perimenopause menopause post menopausetime period and the hormonal connection to that is really really important so as we age our hormones do fluctuate like from our mid 20 s to late 20 s DHEAour hormone resilience starts to decline in both men and women we start to see akind and that’s a predominant hormone by our adrenals produced under our adrenalsalso ovaries and women and testes and men and so that’s a really importanthormone so it’s just kind of this life phase you know genuinely recognizing thatwe have to have stops and becomes we can’t be gogogogo right and so by designthat’s another thing understanding our design how we need to keep using otherways to restore our body’s natural you know it’s natural healing faculties sothat’s what’s happening with DHEA and then with women our progesterone levelsstart to decline in our mid3 0s as we’re decline our fertility and ourprogesterone steeply refuses and estrogen starts reject too and it canbe you know again I’ve heard now with exposing my legend so many beings comeout and they’re telling me I went through menopause at 38 I went throughmenopause at 42 unheard of that was not in my textbooks going through now youknow I’ve been in clinical drug for over 30 “years time” so that’s notsomething that “weve learned” we studied 52 menopause plus or minus 5 year notthe event anymore not the case anymore and and so this decliningprogesterone and estrogen grades that’s important for brain function rightthat’s important for our cadre health our you know ourvascular blood flow and and so the indications that we get instead of you knowthinking okay we just in you know need to introduced a bandaid on this indication we needto address this symptom we look at the underlying cause and really cure ourbody you are well aware rebuild a natural hormonebalance suitable for our age and and what that looks a lot like and and that canthat can really help testosterone gradually wanes from our 40 s you knowmid 30 s to 40 s onward so there’s a more of a gradual decline in progesteronethat I’m in my mid 30 s they’re coming up this year it’s crazy to think about Imean so as brides you know we’re provisioned to believe thatperimenopause and menopause and these places of life are almost theatres to befeared you know how do you help women move through these stagecoaches and feelempowered instead of doomed yeah yeah you know andI think that’s it’s a really key question in a overlook that we justconducted looking at 2000 dames aged 30 to 60 we asked them you know what isyour biggest concern about getting older and number one is the fear of not beingable to take care of yourself and number two was the fear of loss of mobility andnumber three was the fear of memory loss and so that when we’re thinking aboutgetting older we’re thinking about those things I just wanted to merely cleanse that out ofthe question because like you know we we know we have seen at least a fewsanitarians that are walking up mountains and climbingand hiking right so so you know we’re we’re made of the same stuff the sameorganic compounds so we should be able to do that so let’s take out thosefears and then let’s inspire us what’s the best I can be and you know what canI do now that I wasn’t able to do while I’m you know busy running the hamsterwheel so to speak you know our raising children are what can I do now so maybethe fear is that I you know what is there’s a great saying that sometimes wefear are our future potential right we can have this like we can redefineourselves and be even better selves I read daily I read a dailydevotional and it’s called Give Us This Day it’s a Catholic devotional and daily there’s a blessed being of the working day and I speak that religiously becausethere’s always an enliven fib of someone the status of women you know I adore thestories about females that you know improved hospitals or constructed residences for prostitutesand rehabilitation centers and orphanages and women did that affix childbearing years so what is it for us to do we have if we have that mental clarityand we can all have it I’ve seen it now we watch girls merely perfectly reducetheir indications in our in our 10 day program significantly by over 50% that’shuge in ten days so I crave you know I only require peopleto know that there’s more to it that really prompted me of a narrative of thiscouple that we met about two years ago and there was we were at a conferenceand there’s somebody various kinds of far-famed there and so everybody was crowdingaround him so I was like okay what’s going on who is this guyand I was actually there’s this very unassuming 80 year old-fashioned gentleman outsideof this circle precisely standing there ogling and watching so I went andtalked to him instead of going to where the personality was and this unassuming 80 time old-fashioned gentleman and his wife who was also 80 he is the oldest person tosummit every single mountain on every single continent and he’s going to do itagain he started last year again at the age of 80 and so the fact that youempower beings to do whatever they can and it doesn’t matter the senility and thennot to take anything away from his wife his wife actually starts orphanageswherever he goes and so she’s a big huge proponent of these orphanages over byMount Kilimanjaro in Africa so she goes and passes these orphanages and ordenhangs out to those used as he climbs the highest peak of all these continentsexcept for Antarctica I don’t think she goes there but that just prompted me ofthat simply empowering people so I’ll let you yeah it’s just amazing youknow we really have to I enjoy that you talk about you know feelingempowered as you get older because it’s really it’s so important you knowso we’re going to you know switch paraphernaliums a little and talk about weight lossbecause it’s something that a lot of women going through menopause aredealing with you know they feel like they’re they’ve got excess pounds thatthey don’t want around anymore so time you have some suggestions for women goingthrough perimenopause and menopause who really want to removed a little bit ofweight yeah and I would say that it’s interesting because I expected you knowsomething related to obesity or you know weight issues to be one of the biggestfears growing older didn’t form the last didn’t fix the inventory these were allemotional feel of being alone fear of being you know isolated panic of you knowthose were the fears that brides really have so I recall like that I reckon partof it is like getting to the bigger picture right and weight loss is abeneficial side effect of good health right so we look at it that way and thatwas you know certainly that was when I smacked 48 and the value started creepingon despite not doing anything different perhap I would examine my patients tell methat all the time Dr.Anna I’m gaining 5 10 20 pounds and I’m not doinganything different and I’d be like truly let it happen to me I’m like wellyour thyroids goodness I didn’t have to be like well really really I’m not doinganything different and peculiarly because I had come from a target of beingover 240 pounds and kept off 80 of those pounds for a decade to see that scalestart creeping up you’re like it’s not going to stop till I’m 300 like when’sit is going to stop so I get that so that’s where I genuinely that’s why I started myKeto greenway the importance of plantbased alkalinizing foods with aketogenic food and life to get our form into ketosis so that combination oflifestyle and nutrition parts that are so important to help us keep the scalefrom climbing up to help us maintain healthy heavines because eventually as wetalked about this 80 year old like when we have our health there’s a sayingthat says when we have our health you have a million intentions but when you don’thave your state you only have one wish yep 100% I adore that and we’re going to askabout the keto dark-green approach but you time various kinds of you kind of went into itbut did you want to go into that even more or is that pretty much it yeah no Idefinitely talk about that because that was one thing when you know Keto iseverywhere now and back in 2014 2 015 when I started you know the scalestarted climbing again I was okay I got to simply cut out all carbs youknow next to starvation what am I going to do to get this value out because Ineeded to stop and then I knew what my patients would knowledge myperimenopausal patients because I would encounter patrons with Parkinson’s MS seizuredisorders and whenever I use a carbohydrate curbed embed and alsoCandida and whenever I use this carbohydrate curtailed flora I wouldoften hear I feel irascible I’m on edge and I announced it like for when Iexperienced it as I inhibited carbohydrates travelling more on a ketogenicdiet I announced it keto crazy like what’s happening to my neurotransmitters I’mnot patient I’m on edge I’m exasperated I’m like you know I’m a single momyou know raising girlfriends I had two teens at the time and one inelementary school still in elementary school and so you know how to figureout what’s going on here because you know more than anything my relations ourrelationships are the most important thing to us and so that’s when I startedlooking and checking my urinary pH I was acidic acidic acidic I’m like bullsofcourse right it’s there’s a cyberspace inflammatory and acidic laden that’shappening and so I started supplementing on the alkalinizers the low-pitched carb alkalinegreens to keep me in ketosis well first to get alkaline get a continuous urinealkaline pH of seven I convey really seven is perfect right urinary pH of seven orhigher or seven to eight and then you know wake up that room and thenstart restricting the carbohydrates through intermittent fasting stoppingsnacking and healthy fats healthy proteins and good roots because whenwe’re use any animal needs when we’re anything we lay in our torso puton our mas has a consequence good and bad so we need to really consider thatso I truly set that into my keto dark-green lifestyleand nutrition proposal in my work The Hormone Fix but that made all thedifference within six weeks I lost 18 of the 20 pounds and it was not only thatreally you know Travis and Jenna and you guys will appreciate this I was alsostruggling with psyche gloom I was also I was in a very mold poisonous environment at that time I has no such plan and I was you know in this menopausal stage hormones were striving still administering alot with posttraumatic stress so I got a lot of this you know memory issuesbrain fog I was contending from those moments and as I became clearer you knowgot keto lettuce I call it getting keto you know getting alkaline urinary pHand getting my figure into the fatburning state of ketosis I time had such mentalclarity and I call it invigorated enlightenment galvanized enlightenment I’mlike this is why you know are the prophets fasted this is why you knowmost every major really every major religion has fasting toiled into youknow into the culture because it creates a precision for a spiritual connectionbecause we have to remember we’re not just physical bodies we’re energeticbodies and so that dynamic I found to be very very helpful in my spiritual lifeas well now I want to say that to our audience that we did not tell herto say any of that that is purely her sentiments and it is exactly what we tellthem all the time is we just talked about keto and how negative it can bebut how positive it can be because a lot of people recollect keto is just I need toeat bacon for breakfast and burgers for lunch and it’s not that at all the ketogreen approaching I cherish how you did mark that term I’m guessing rightyou should because that’s exactly what we coach we just didn’t trademark itfirst but it’s fantastic to think that you doing this alkaline shifting dietwhich we ever talk about the antiinflammatory diet eating moregreens and then getting into that alkaline country because we always talkabout an acidic regime being cancercausing and inflammation causingso that’s going to motive your perimenopause your menopause to be evenworse and then your dehydrate gazes so I adored howthat’s why I had a big smile on my face pretty much the whole time you’retalking because that’s exactly what we talked about to our gathering all thetime and exactly sounding a second source say that it time shows that it is thatimportant diet we ever tell people that they always query us what’s yournumber one management recommendation for dry eye and I say 80% of what you can dofor dry attention is diet and hydration stage the other 20% is your eye sags youromega3s you’re this you’re that you’re this and it’s hard for them to kind ofgrasp that but it’s true and it’s probably the same with menopause 80% isthat diet hydration and activity it’s that material that you’re doing to yourbody because the other stuff exactly clothes up things right and so I loved hearingeverything you only has spoken about so do you have a couple hours to make somequestions I adoration questions absolutely we have lots of questions so hang in tighten but firstthis is The Dry Eye Show I’m Dr.Travis Zigler and I’m Dr. Jenna Zigler and that’sDr. Anna Cabeca menopause expert hormonal expert just came out with abook The Hormone Fix and we’re giving away 10 facsimiles to any commenter socomment if this is your first time here if it’s not your first time now andthen where you’re from and if you have any questions for the hormone expertDr. Cabeca then post them below and we’re going to collect 10 people that commentto winning journals so let’s jumping over to the first questions we had some “were having” somedoozies usually so alright person says how energizing I desire whenthere are interview videos and she’s agitated for this one can you read thatone yeah so question is this is from Carrieso she said the week following the birth of her lad her sees were excellent andthen they slowly started to have dry nose indications again she’s still nurse andshe’s now experiencing ocular rosacea so what hormones if any were at playfollowing delivery and then now during breastfeeding quite interesting so prior to pregnancy was there dry gazes also and then after gestation so duringpregnancy no baked noses so there’s estriol and progesterone so two really powerfulhormones that are in abundance during pregnancy and likewise you know we reallyare you know in are actually there’s a communication with our newborns tooduring pregnancy as well between their adrenals and their hormones and there’s that communication but I would say obviously progesterone andestriol and sometimes I is located within patrons that had persistent baked noses that I knowwhat Travis have you ever exploited estrogen eyedrops we have not known or somethingeyedrops I have not squandered testosterone butestrogenbased eyedrops I would start genuinely I would think you know definitelyyou crave the high quantity omega3s because we want to improve that celltocellcommunication cell membrane function but then you know maybe consideringbioidentical progesterone and I wonder if that wouldn’t help as afirst step yeah sounds good interesting secondquestion and this is kind of a question for both of us but we’ll various kinds of propagandize ittowards you a little bit more is there a medical evaluation for hormone referred dry eyeand I believe that we can rephrase that question to saying is there a medicaltests for hormonal imbalances that can be done surely looking at hormonesI’m not sure about testing exclusively for baked hearts but definitely when Ithink of dry attentions I certainly I’m going to think about toxicity hormone toxicityand you know epithelial cell dysfunction so things that I want to improve is thedetoxification of hormones you are well aware from our liver improving our intestine state Imean basically everything in the keto greenway because we want to improve cellto cell communication blood flow the you know the lubrication of our cellmembranes right that’s really critical so as we get healthful internallyeverything else gets really really health formidable all right so let’s lookover at the live criticism so let’s see Peggy had a little problem with hersound and that’s echoing generally that happens at the beginning of anythingCheryl says thank you I adore a follow of the book Jen says thank you and let’ssee Donna says hi this is exciting thank you for presenting on this topic Iactually only had my first restorative yoga session thatfun awesome and let’s see Ursula says have been in menopause fairly some time butdon’t remember when it started Shelley says this is great I’m glad to hear morethan the wrote rebuttals most physicians hand and then let’s see Sylvia says I’m soexcited about this topic I’ve been trying to find answers myself after sopick up the book The Hormone Fix and maybe we’ll picking you too to triumph it aswell let’s see you want to read that one yeah she said she’s a perimenopausal andhas concerns like all women about menopause she just says thank you forthis discussion and interview it’s been wonderful then Donna says my eyes gotdramatically worse with menopause I would listen to this interview becausethere are some great talking qualities and if you can take away a marry thingsleafy park vegetables made them in your nutrition commons pulverize like Dr.AnnaCabeca’s mighty maca plus and then hydration and following everything shedoes and maybe we’ll get you a mimic of the book soUrsula says huge subject Sylvia invites can you tell me more about your volume andhow or how your book can help with menopause and my value gain yeahdefinitely because number one I think it’s really important to understandwhere we’re at in our theatre of living and how our person has rewired so we becomelike you know energy conservationists from thephysical position right like we can survive those long treks and and in thedesert a long time so we really need to work with our nutrition and life toimprove that and to improve our natural hormonal balance so the keto greenway isabout 25 percent nutrition and 75 percent life points so likewise looking at howwe can improve you know restoring our torso or sentiment ourhealth as long as we live so that we can have that quality of life so I gothrough that in my bibles from you know hormones and questionnaires and whattests you have been able do as well as what interventions what are the you know whatare the right interventions as far as bioidentical hormones and supplementsand a great deal of good datum in there awesomepeople hate on when we talk about stress and not that we talkabout stress but how much stress comedies a role in disease it’s almost likethey don’t believe it but and it’s huge it’s hugeit is so vast I symbolize it applied me in early menopause a hundred percent placed me inearly menopause it’s not something I was informed about right I knew it andthen I went to learn and understand it and it’s still I convey this is newinformation chapter eight in my journal is all about stress and also the hormoneoxytocin the powerful hormone of ardour and connection that we really need tomake primary in our life and do everything we can to keep that in theforefront of our life and stress are big thing to understand whether it’s real orperceived has the same effect so posttraumatic stress is still runningan engine moving within us and until we can recognize that we will continue tosuffer its consequences all right so Terri says gaining weightmay not have realise the register but it sure happened to me Peggy says yeplifestyle nutrition are key to being healthyall right so Jen requests do you propose yeah can’t talk anymore do you suggestthat females take DHEA and how much well good question I firstly want to answerTeri’s make weight was you know obesity was not a fear of getting olderthat wasn’t a fear but it’s definitely a manifestation was one of the one of thesymptoms memory loss hot flashes you know weight gain loss of libido aches andpains all of the hair loss all of those were indications that over 50% of women’sexperienced so we didn’t want to say I wanted to say that and then what wasthat question Jen asks do you propose brides make DHEA and how much well you knowas far as supplementing with oral DHEA very rarely very rarely and your if yourDHEA levels are low certainly below 50 below 100 you may want to consider DHEAsupplementation the biggest thing is that I was of the view that you know using adrenaladaptogens naturally increases our body’s ability to produce DHEA we loped astudy with mighty maca plus and we lookedseveral patients who started mighty maca plus looked at their DHEA levelsand retested them in two months and the average was a 70% increase in DHEAthat’s when and the only reason i experimented others was because I was striving PTSDmy DHEA elevations were in the 30 s I was tanked I was wearied I was guiding apractice and being a mom and doing all the things that you are required to do so I thencreated mighty maca and started exercising it in my rehearse and with my patients andwith me and then the next time I checked my DHA was 200 and I was like whoabecause I had been doing all the adrenal protocols I necessitate list every diary everyauthor husband we had complements out the yinyang and then mightymaca just really turned that for me and and because of the adaptogenic formulathat makes a difference and then sometimes I would complement with DHEAfor sexual health and vaginal dryness and vulva editions we use JulvaJulva is of natural mixture I created that has DHEA in it nearly eightmilligrams per half ml but also has other parts to help withrejuvenation for the aspects of aging that that can affect our sexual healthand wellbeing as well as continents so so I’m a big fan of clearly abusing itin that way awesome so before we jump into the next questionI do want to mention again that if you’re just joining us make sure you letus know in the comments where you’re joining us from if it’s your first timeor not and we are giving away 10 two copies of The Hormone Fix which is Dr.Cabeca’s new bible that she just came out with so comment below any questions thatyou have if it’s your first time connect us and then let us know where you’rejoining us from so with that being said Cheryl this is an interesting questionwhat about those of us that get itchy from leafy dark-greens that’s what Isaid too I necessitate I would think it’s just maybe an allergy maybe they have anallergy to a specific lettuce I would explore and so try kale andthen try spinach and then try watercress and try like exactly keep tryingdifferent leafy light-greens or switch to a powderform a gunpowder structure can get a little complicated because it has so many somany different types of leafy commons in it so you are able to actually have allergy tomaybe like spirulina which I do and that’s a very common thing to beallergic to but I would just explore different things so try mighty maca andif you don’t get itchy “youre using” that if you do get it you try a different one and soit might be precisely the route one ingredient in that greens pulverize reacts or it couldbe something in like the kale that reacts to you so I would single it outfirst use kale implementation spinach try other lettuces and then try lettuces pulverizes andthen if one obliges you ache “youre trying to” a different oneor get a food sensitivity test to see if you’re allergic to something freedom rightand also is it is it exactly fresh greens or cook parks I wonder if there’s adifference if you blanch them if you cook that and then I would definitelyjust is in addition to that register of suggestions sprigs broccoli alfalfa sproutssomething like that and see it and do those Cheryl if you can clarify if it’sraw greens parks powder or cooked greens we can maybe I don’t know if wecan answer it better but we can maybe steer you a little bit more so cause us knowin the comments if you if you haven’t answered that so Sylvia questions is the dietin the book yes there’s a 10 day keto green quick start detox nutrition and 21 daysof menus so both are in there perfect great Donna’s from WhitehallPennsylvania welcome from Pennsylvania Peggy’s happy to hear about this topicthank you and Jen we know it’s not your first time now we see you lots andDonna requested is there diet in the book as well so we just answered that Shellysaid the first time here from Illinois all right Sylvia questions do you recommendany augments and which ones yeah so in my record I have a whole assembly onsupplementation I think it’s important to kind of look at that but I have youdo questionnaires and figure out there are certain things that Irecommend for all of us like I would say if there were only two things leaving myyou know I’ve retired my medical rehearse now but two things leaving myoffice it would be a high quality omega3 add-on with you know a goodDHA EPA ratio and it would be mighty maca plusbecause of the you know the results I’ve seen with it overall and so that wouldbe like the two key ones often as we’re getting older I want to add magnesiumbecause every red blood cell magnesium test that I’ve done were suboptimal andyou know vitamin D you know will I want to get as much in quality as I can but Iwant to get our optimal our blood degrees optimal as well because every hormone inour form every like progesterone needs vitamin D estrogen needs vitamin D Imean we need vitamin D to work with our hormone and DHA and oxytocin we needvitamin D so that’s another supplement that I would want to beoptimal and then post menopausal and postmenopausal I usebioidentical progesterone and in complement with a transdermal ointment or aprescription formula great and we know somebody that has a great Heyedrateomega3 that’s I imply has a great omega3 it’s called Heyedrate omega3 that’s ourstowards dry eye so it has a couple unique properties in it as well but yeahwe recommend double-dealing the dose like you said kind of increasing that omega3 allat once firstly and then kind of tapering it down slowly so yeah we do mentionthat as well Naomi just has her storey right there and she says thank you foryour input and help on the subject as I know I have suffered all or many ofthese same indications so she thanks you for that Donna queries Donna wants toknow your thoughts on probiotics which various kinds of exits along with the lastsupplement question yeah so I emphatically I’m a big fan of probiotics because atleast on an inter time if not daily basis depending on your nutrition rightbecause you can get a good healthy dose of probiotics from fermented sauerkrautfrom kimchi from all of these things and you are well aware from those things my daughterjust went in so I came agitated so so which is almost time to get ready forbed and our lad is talking behind us in the wall behind us so I certainly recommendprobiotics and it’s certainly with you know my with my thinking of my daughtereven with my daughter when my best friend are sick I sacrifice herprobiotics you are well aware open her vitamin D you know lent in some zinc lozenges somethinglike that really important on a regular basis I take a probiotic as part of myroutine supplement regimen because a good deal of them like we eat out we’re going to getif it’s nonorganic food we’re getting a quantity of antibiotics and so that killsoff the most important you know part in our mas the microbiome if we can callit its own its own organ I kind of started to think about it like thatbecause it really is you know it creates hormones and it metabolizesthem and it you know detoxifies them so so we really have to keep the health ofour microbiome you know priority how much hour do “were having” ofyours left Dr.Cabeca well how much term do you want I have the top of the hourokay so we’ve got about ten more questions and they still sit all flowingin so let’s climb here in this question Judy says thank you so much and she affection usand Karen says so she’s 54 has a had her interval in a few years but hasn’t had hotflashes and and she doesn’t sleep and she sleeps perfectly sorry so why couldit be that I have one potential mansion of menopause which is dry gazes but no othersigns of menopause could my bone-dry look alone be due to leaky gut and nothormones yeah it’s definitely possible and also you know if you are livingso much of you know a healthy life and insulin feelings Idon’t expect you to get hot flashes if you’ve got that facet hormonalybalance you’re still with hormonal drop-off I would definitely suppose thosetwo things maybe it’s just the natural hormonal worsen if you’re also veryvery thin then we don’t have any estrogen alteration from our fat cellsand then also if it’s a intestine concern the the mucous sheaths of our heart of ourvagina of her cheek all of them suffer so another big question Ralph says isthere such thing as male menopause andropause we call it andropause fromthe crumbling levels of testosterone and DHEAyeah it’s so pretty much same mansions and manifestations and maybe not the exactsame but very similar as far as the fatigue and everything we went overearlier yes muscle loss value advantage and we worry about gynecomastia too likewhere is testosterone converting to so the you know the key to greendiet everything I put in The Hormone Fix use really well for menopausal womenand you know being one I can say this if it works for us it works foranyone and so many beings have come along with their wives journey or theirpartner’s journeying and have just seen an incredible transformation chaps do somuch better so much faster and I rationalize dames but it’s true yeah andthat’s yeah that’s a great that is what’s probably causing your bone-dry gaze andjust going through that passage is just going to help with the dry eye as well yeahso another great question I’m well past menopause not me Peggy asksand time had my medicare birthday is your book for me as well absolutelyabsolutely whether you’re early you know in your mid thirties or you know justwant to live a health life or well past menopause this the plan and planned andrecommendation in my journal utterly will help you be even healthier morevibrant and more entertaining than you are alreadyUrsula questions can menopause effect of bladder health yeah utterly thedeclining levels of estrogen DHEA testosterone progesterone affect themuscles and the collagen the connective material around our bladder so we ofteneven like you know like I would say you know we were worried about the wrinklesaround our eyes but when we start wrinkling down there we’re going to haveleaking urinary leakage when you cough and sneezing when we laugh and those arethings you want to keep being able to do without you no repercussions the samewith exercise so many ladies stopped activity because they’re leaking whenthey’re exercising and in using that we we know that my product Julva can reallyhelp with that because it’s an antiaging cosmetic cream for the vulvaand it can help as a thematic solution for you are well aware an easy justpreventive care like we want to use something now now we definitely needto take care of our maid bits and that can make a really big difference sopelvic floor exercises plus Julva is is my prescription you know to help withto help prevent that as well all right Sylvia asked what is mighty maca plusmighty maca plus is an association of over 30 superfoods that I employed andexperimented with as part of my jaunt around the world in my healing journeyso some foods based on my experiences as well as research and I articulated thatcombination together because I actually attributed some of the key ingredientsin mighty maca plus to help me recover my state and so it has you knowmaca which is an adrenal adaptogen it sprung that proliferate and it’s in thecruciferous kinfolk grows up in the high altitudes of Peru and it was reportedby the ancient Incans that the fighters where they are reported that theancient Incan soldiers would booze maca before they went into battle and sowhen I was wandering through Peru they said well if you’re tired booze maca ifyou’re infertile potion maca so I was struggling with infertility at that timeand then they would elbow my husband and say it’s the Peruvian viagra drinksome maca and I was like first of all give me that maca let me drink itsecondly I couldn’t stand the way it perceived thirdly if something’s this goodand if I’d gone to boozing and I can’t stand the method it savor let me look atthe research that was my awfully technical process and I looked at the research and maca contains specific proteins unique to it and it isdefinitely there so it’s an adaptogenic formula for the adrenals I believe it’svery much like to marking and resveratrol and also in mightymaca plus the hell is have genetic adaptogenic cleverness as well and so wesee that so likewise maca has a high amount of arginine whichincreases nitric oxide which multiplications blood flood which is how viagra worksso that was the basis and then I needed to make it taste good too plus you knowI worked mangosteen acerola you are well aware different berries and greens andextracts to develop a very powerful very delicious formula so that’s mighty maca plus my healing jaunt we use it and it runs reallywell like it’s great so question involving maca and this I’ve heard macacan cause weight gain Shelley asks what’s your opinion on that we have notseen that at all with my combining we don’t use straight-shooting maca for a fewreasons but we use in mighty maca plus we’veseen passion increase weight loss blood sugar betterments all of thosethings so where is your practice pinpointed Melanie invites Melanie I’m in SoutheastGeorgia but I retired my clinical rehearse so hubbubs familiar I’m conjure mychild right now raising my youngest so instructing you online get my record yeahthis is actually a great question Sylvia asks does your diary offer guidance pastthe 21 daytimes of keto green diet and I could answer this but I want to hearyour answer too well it’s a lifestyle converting commitment plus the checklist are inthere too and the questionnaires come back to it time and time again this ismeant to be a resource a lifetime resource and I’ve been really pleasedthat in Amazon it was it’s been for over six weeks now number one in menopauseit’s been in the top three for women’s health in the last several weeks as wellas been number one in textbook books so it is this resource so it’s a great goodread as well as a resource manual for you at every stage and to come back toagain and again something else will speak to you yeah and that’s exactlywhat we always talk about is we’re coming out with our bible next monthRethinking Dry Eye Treatment and it’s the exact same conception you’re not going toactually you can read both notebooks and they’re going to be very very similarand I say at the beginning of our notebook that this is not for the gimmicky peoplethat are just going to fall back on old attires this is for the people that wantto change their part life to improve their health and get rid of thedisease once and for all so the keto light-green diet even though it’s a ten stepplan that’s to get you started on a healthier lifestyle after that ten daysyou can essentially save doing what you were doing thatten days for the rest of your life which is what my wife and I have done the lastfive years and we struggled with infertility and we had a son as a resultof three years of us exploring different food changes and exercise andstressrelated things and we tried everything in the Western medicine worldand it didn’t work and we didn’t do IVF that’s the only thing we didn’t do andwe explored acupuncture in eastern medicine and it made in three to four monthsand so it’s a lifestyle switch and yeah it’s amazing when you doit you don’t miss the things like cake and donuts and when you gobble those thingsyou actually get that you’re not attracted to themanymore because your body craves what you eat and so you’ll start to createhealthier things so I think that is all the questions let’s answer thislast one last-place question here so it’s interesting that you promotebioidentical hormones so you believe that they’re safe yeah you know there’sa age and a region for them they’re not for everyone but let me tell you unlesswe’re living out in them I would say I get this issue and also how long isit safe to be on them now I’ve used by indistinguishable hormones in my practice foryears and especially you know that’s key bioidentical not synthetic hormonesthere is a difference and looking at the research on bioidenticals there’simprovement in morbidity and death so there’s less illness and less youknow certainly consequences of going without them now why we need this Ialways get this question so I’ll answer questions you know the I get the question whydo we need hormones if it’s a natural age process and aging is a naturalprocess and if we’re living in a natural environment like in Ubud Indonesia we’reoutside you know majority of the day giving gratitude step living innature or in in the forests or in you know where we are living with naturewe’re get a lot more than vitamin D from the daylight we’re designed to live that wayif we’re not living by design what is the next natural course that I can helpsupport my form to live a health long old ageand that’s key that meets the difference so that’s where I’m a proponent Idefinitely use bioidentical progesterone transdermally on a on a weekly basis sothe first you know Monday through Friday Monday through Saturday Sundays offtypically now in the this menopausal cognitive state or cyclically when I wasperimenopausal and then likewise DHEA I generally you know the products I createdbecause I number 1 I required it is a matter of chemical free and as clean as possibleso my pure poised PPR cream and then Julva and so the issue is two things I usecoming from those slants and I surely I certainly believe in it inthe research in it and and those are you know ingredients that are called GRASGRAS generally recognized as safe and are available for us to be able to useprescription wise sometimes there’s a need for additional prescriptionprogesterone testosterone or estrogen and a little bit runs a long wayhormones are very powerful and we need to really discern again what’s workingfor the americans and what’s working against us in my bible The Hormone Fix I go into thisin a lot of detail because I want to empower us the individual to really takecharge in our state and know is well positioned to mark what’s working for us and what’snot well we wanted to thank you so much for coming on
