Huberman Lab Podcast Notes The areas of the brain that control feeding, fleeing, fighting, and mating are in close proximity in the brain possibly to help the animal decide what behavior to prioritize and what to shut down at any given moment“Aggression refers more to a description of behavior than the internal state. Aggression could reflect fear, anger, hungry (in animals).” – Dr. David AndersonEstrogen and the aromatase of testosterone into estrogen is really what generates aggression, not testosterone aloneArousal is tethered to the mating and reproductive process: without a seesaw between sympathetic and parasympathetic, there is no matingThe same behavior can reflect different states and different states can converge on multiple behaviorsIn social animals and humans, the body secretes higher levels of tachykinin when we are not socially connected enough – symptoms: increased irritability, paranoia, fear, lonelinessEmotion involves bidirectional communication between the brain and body, mediated by the peripheral nervous system, autonomic nervous system, and Vagus nerveRead the full notes @ podcastnotes.orgMy guest is David Anderson, PhD, a world expert in the science of sexual behavior, violent aggression, fear and other motivated states. Dr. Anderson is a Professor of Biology at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), a member of the National Academy of Sciences and an investigator with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI). We discuss how states of mind (and body) arise and persist and how they probably better explain human behavior than emotions per se. We also discuss the many kinds of arousal that create varying levels of pressure for certain behaviors to emerge. We discuss different types of violent aggression and how they are impacted by biological sex, gender, context, prior experience, and hormones, and the neural interconnectedness of fear, aggression and sexual behavior. We also discuss peptides and their role in social isolation-induced anxiety and aggression. Dr. Anderson also describes novel, potentially powerful therapeutics for mental health.

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:    Ashley: Hello! My 7 year old son has very enlarged tonsils. He does have allergies and currently takes monolucast every night. I remember you talking about your daughter having enlarged tonsils and you did a protocol and it helped reduce them. He doesn't snore eveynight but sometimes he does. I don't want to have his removed and was hoping you could share what you did for your daughter and I could possibly try it on him. Thank you for your help and truly appreciate all your help.   Patti: Hi Dr. Cabral Wishing you well. I have listened to all of your podcast referencing breast cancer & many on cancer. I have had breast cancer twice in the same breast. I completed approximately 18 gene tests & none of them were found. I don't eat red meat, dairy or saturated fats & stopped eating eggs which I did not eat often. I do eat pasture raised organic chicken & turkey & wild caught sockeye salmon. Is there any research that they can contribute to an increase in cancer? Thank you as always!!   Jennifer: Hello Dr. Cabral! Thank you for taking the time to try to help me. I'm a huge fan and an avid listener! My naturopath ran bloodwork on my first visit with her and discovered my iron was high (169 with iron saturation at 56, TIBC was 304 and UIBC was 135). She did not check ferritin at the time, but everything else she tested was in the normal range. She had me take Alpha Lipoic Acid for a month and retested me 4 months later. I got "the virus" 2 months before the retest. At the retest, she tested ferritin (just regular ferritin, not saturation or any other measure). This time, my TIBC and UIBC were in the low range at 226 and 106, respectively. My iron went down to 120 and my iron saturation went down to 53. My ferritin was 247. My naturopath wanted me to take Alpha Lipoic Acid again to lower the ferritin, but I wonder about that, as my iron is fine now and my TIBC and UIBC are low. She wants to retest and if my ferritin is still high, start having me get my blood drawn to lower it. I personally wonder if the high ferritin is due to inflammation from the virus or if there's another missing piece here. I'm hoping you can steer me in the right direction of what to test for or any other ideas. Thank you so much for all you do!   Anouk: Hi there, I've been listening to your podcast which has been very eye opening. I have a few questions concerning my PCOS. On 6/18/21 I had a panel done. FSH: 10.3 pg/ml PROGESTERONE: 34 FREE TESTOSTERONE: 116 DHEA, ETRADIOL, T3, FREE T4 , LH, TPO ANTIBODIES, TSH , CORTISOL: ( all in normal range). I started taking all of the supplements below and re-tested on 1/20/22 and my levels were: PROGESTERONE: 13 FREE TESTOSTERONE: 58 DHEA: 2.1 and everything else was in normal range. Since my first lab on 6/18/2020 I have been taking these daily: MYO-INOSITOL, NAC, CURCUMIN, QUERCETIN, OMEGA 3, G.I PROBIOTIC At what point can I stop taking these supplements? I am a 27 year old female I exercise almost daily height 5' 8'' weight 125 My periods have gone from 67 day cycles to 35 days cycles and lasts around 3 days. My skin has cleared up and I know longer experience frequent panic attacks! ( My periods are still extremely painful) I am hoping to not be dependent on these but definitely don't want to risk having my previous symptoms return. Would love to know your insight, thanks again very much appreciate all the information you share. Anouk   Pat: I take an estrogen/hormone blocker as I call it Anastrozole (same as tamoxifen) How should I go about to lose weigh all I do is gain and I watch my carbs and eat very clean and exercise.

We all know what stress is. There isn't anyone that doesn't experience stress. The problem is when our stress is prolonged, it becomes dangerous to our bodies. When we are stressed, our adrenals produce cortisol. Cortisol is fine in the short-term, but it's the constant drip, drip, drip over a long period of time that is very damaging. Too much cortisol affects all parts of our bodies. Join Dr. Martin as he teaches on the connection between stress and low levels of testosterone in men and progesterone in women.

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:    Simon: Hello and thank you Dr Cabral. As someone who is 'obsessed' with optimizing my health and performance, I've always wondered how I should view donating blood and plasma. Putting aside the great benefit to others, could you explain what the immediate and medium-term impacts on the body of donating blood, in terms of overall health, mental and physical performance? Thanks!   Laura: What could be the reason of a 30 year old woman on phase 3 of adrenal dysfunction (adrenal fatigue) with normal levels of estrogen but high progesterone on a saliva test? Pg/E2 ratio, testosterone and DHEA all good. Never seen high progesterone before so not sure what we should be looking at here.   Hayley: Hi Dr. Cabral! I have been having issues on and off for a few months with my oral health. I have tiny bumps on the end of my tongue that makes it constantly feel raw. My saliva always feels thick and it seems like food gets stuck before it even starts to go down my throat. My throat feels sore most days, like there is a lump when I try and swallow. My gums occasionally bleed when I floss as well. This all started a few months ago with not much different to my routine and I'm not sure where all this is coming in from. I feel like it has really affected my ability to eat and am looking for an idea of what this could be caused by. Thanks!   Lisa: Hi Dr Cabral! I have a hard time with alcohol. With 1 glass of wine I feel quite buzzed and I'm curious as to why? Is it a histamine intolerance or am I missing and enzyme? Liver clogged? Can I test for this and is there anything I can do or take to handle alcohol a bit better? I simply would like to be able to enjoy 2 glasses when I eat out without feeling too tipsy. Appreciate all your knowledge you share on these wonderful podcasts!   Kelsey: I have a client that burps when she is hungry. She doesn't burp after eating or have acid reflux. Would burping when hungry signal anything? Thanks!   Tiffany: I am 46 years old and my anxiety is getting worse and affecting my daily life. I feel weak all the time and get surges of adrenaline at strange times. I get anxiety really badly when driving. I need an appointment with a functional medicine practitioner. I live in FL but would be willing to do telemedicine. I don't know who to reach out to, but I am starting to get desperate. How can I schedule an appointment?

There's a bit of a misunderstanding in the health world that endometriosis is just a hormone problem, but this line of thinking is incomplete. Hormones can absolutely contribute to the endometriosis picture, but they are not the cause of endometriosis. And part of treating endometriosis should include strategies to support the hormones, though that's not where the support should end. Today on the show Erin speaks with Dr. Lara Briden all about endometriosis and why it's such a complex thing to treat. Tune in to hear Lara dive into the immune side of endometriosis, epigenetics, gut dysbiosis, and how all these things can be interconnected. Erin and Lara also discuss testing options and strategies to treat endometriosis, plus and natural remedies you can try at home and lifestyle factors to consider. This episode is important to hear if you've been struggling with endometriosis or suspect you might have it, have been diagnosed with IBS but think there may be more going on, or if you're a practitioner looking to deepen your understanding on the complexities of endometriosis. In this episode: -Lara Briden is kind of a big deal [2:50] -The misunderstanding with endometriosis [4:02] -Looking at endometriosis as a disease of immune dysfunction [7:25] -Lara's philosophy towards women's physiology and women's health [8:57] -What is endometriosis?

Hormones play a huge role in women's health. In today's episode, Dr. Deb Matthews breaks down the differences between Bioidentical hormones and Progestins. She also explains the different protocols for women of all ages; There is no “one size fits all” approach to hormones. This is something each woman should discuss with their doctor.    Dr. Matthews walks us through the prescriptive history of hormone replacement therapy and why many doctors are afraid of liability issues when prescribing to their patients. Breast Cancer is the biggest concern for women. However, there are so many benefits to hormone replacement therapy that may be overlooked out of fear; which is why Dr. Matthews is dedicated to educating both doctors and patients on the possibilities and risks of these treatments.   Takeaways: [0.25] Are Bioidentical hormones safe? [4:21] Estrogen Dominance: Estrogen can help feed cancer cell growth while progesterone can hinder it. [6:15] Different forms of Progesterone [7:40] Progestins for birth control but not for breast health [14:45] Dispelling Myths: 1. short term hormone use. 2. Avoiding hormone replacement because of hereditary breast cancer concerns [17:30] All hormones are NOT created equally:Hormone replacement therapy and breast cancer [21:00] Considering lifestyle before prescribing Hormones.  [22:30] Menopause: is it too late for Bioidentical hormones? [27:36] Testosterone: Women have 10x more testosterone than estrogen because it is what produces estrogen. [29:19] Hormones can help deal with vaginal skin changes throughout aging.    Mentioned in Episode: https://signaturewellness.org   Twitter: “ When I started on progesterone,I just felt like  it was like nature's version of a glass of red wine, it is just so calming and you can feel more in control and back to yourself again.”  [3:11]    “Toxins in the environment is the most common trigger for breast cancer, but it's also the environment in the breast, if you have healthy breasts,then  it is harder for cancer cells to flourish.”  [4:00]    “The natural form of progesterone has not been shown to increase the risk for breast cancer the way that the synthetic progestins has. There really is a difference between what form of progesterone we're giving to women when we think about their risks for breast cancer.”  [11:36]   “The hormones are just a piece of it, we need a healthy gut We need proper detox pathways, we need the good lifestyle habits and the hormones are the icing on the cake.” [21:54]

Wendy K Laidlaw welcomes back Dr Tony Coope (MD) from the UK to the Podcast where they discuss the truths and safety of natural bio-identical progesterone cream.  “With endometriosis it's not just about adding Progesterone. Without addressing the emotional and spiritual elements of your life, you cannot heal. That's the conclusion I have come too”.  Dr Tony Coope There is often a significant amount of misinformation, misunderstanding and confusion amongst many women, including the mainstream medical realm, about the use and supplementation of natural bio-identical progesterone cream.  Natural bio-identical progesterone cream is a safe way to naturally increase levels of the hormone progesterone (if it is low, or there is none showing up in tests). However, natural bio-identical progesterone is often mistaken for the chemical alternative called Progestins, which are produced by the big pharmaceutical companies and may cause severe side effects for women with endometriosis.  Dr Tony Coope has a wide breadth of experience and wealth of knowledge covering various health conditions spanning over 40+ years. He has trained and served in general practice, as well as a hospital doctor, covering the specialities of medicine, surgery, paediatrics, geriatrics and emergency/trauma medicine.  After leaving general practice he explored an Integrated Medical approach to healing naturally including the use of nutritional supplements, bio-identical hormones, botanicals, as well as complex homeopathy and the use of sound and monochromatic light in healing. He has specialised for over 20 years in female hormone health, incorporating psychology and psychosomatic elements of complementary medicine to assist a full brain/body health and healing. Dr Tony Coope's journey enabled him to branch further into spiritual matters, philosophy and metaphysics, which he believes expands an individual's sense of meaning and purpose in the world, thereby leading to full health, wholeness and fulfilment. *Please note* - it is recommended to address the emotional and spiritual elements of yourself, relationships and past events, first, (and The 5 P's; Poisons, Produce, Products, Property, People & Past), prior to introducing any natural bio-identical progesterone cream.  Sign up for the NEW & interactive live 21 Day Challenge with Wendy called ‘UnBlock Your Emotional Blocks' starts Wednesday 10th August 2022.  To learn more go to Unblock_Emotional_Blocks_21_day_challenge   #UnBlockEmotionalBlocksChallenge  #endometriosisawareness #endo #theendolifestyle #endometriosisawarenessmonth #endoeducation #endosupport #endofacts #endometriosisnaturally #endometriosisnaturallycookbook #cookbook #adenomyosis #healendometriosisnaturally #wendyklaidlaw #healendometriosisnaturallycookbook #Adenomyosis #EndometriosisNaturallyCookbook #EndoBoss #WendyKLaidlaw #PodcastsOnAmazonMusic @AmazonMusicUK

See all the Healthcasts at https://www.biobalancehealth.com/healthcast-blog/ At a get together of friends, I was pulled aside by a good friend who asked me how she could prevent dementia, because the mother she loves is in a memory care facility and she never wants that to be her future!  My answer was brief, but I can now think of so many other things I could have recommended for her, and I thought I would share them with you, and I will give her a copy of the blog that goes along with these suggestions. I read research every day that tells doctors what causes dementia and increases risk of getting dementia at the middle or latter part of life.  When I get to the basis of all the findings in the medical articles, it is detailed as I will discuss, But the basic qualities and problems to treat include INFLAMMATION, ATHEROSCLEROTIC VASCULAR DISEASE, OBESITY, HIGH SUGAR DIET, HIGH BP SMOKING AND ALCOHOL AND POOR DIET. Risk of Dementia Includes the following categories of Modifiable Risk factors:  Low Testosterone and estradiol Chronic inflammation Obesity Diabetes High BP Depression Cigarette/cigar smoking Hearing loss Binge Drinking and excessive alcohol intake Sedentary lifestyle Lack of sunlight High carb diet—sodas, sugar Aging= low sex hormones, poor production of nitric oxide and poor absorption of oral vitamin Bs Chronic injuries and pain that cause chronic inflammation—get that knee or shoulder fixed! Chronic heart disease---arrythmia, atherosclerotic heart disease   Foods to Eat Prevent Dementia Eggs in moderation Cumin Anything with protein Yogurt and other foods (Kambucho) with probiotics and lactobacciluus Clean fresh foods Meats and fish that are fresh or frozen, not preserved, or processed Steamed or fresh vegetables (not canned or processed) Seeds and nuts (raw and roasted without salt preferable) Foods to avoid to prevent dementia: Inflammatory foods and soy products Milk, especially cow's milk. (High carb content) especially skin milk! Soy All phytoestrogens Wheat Food with preservatives (all processed foods have preservatives) Modifiable risk factors        Replace hormones that are missing with bio-identical hormones, non-oral delivery system Estradiol pellets, patches, gels, for women Progesterone for women who miss it or who have a uterus Testosterone pellets, creams, gels Thyroid replacement. Armour Thyroid for women and levothyroxine for men Neurotransmitters by taking probiotics       Suppress LH and FSH –high levels increase risk of dementia and osteoporosis (new study) Take estradiol and testosterone for women—enough to suppress FSH and LH to pre-menopausal levels Replace Testosterone for men Keep Blood Sugar Normal Eat a low sugar and low carb diet— Treat prediabetes with meds Treat diabetes with meds Decease alcohol; intake to 1 4 oz glass of wine a day and < 1.5 oz of alcohol/day Get to ideal weight   Achieve Ideal Weight –Obesity and Overweight Increases Inflammation That Increases Dementia, so Decrease Inflammation             Eat properly--Eat your base caloric intake or less daily Low carb diet Eat ½ X -1 X your body weight in protein daily Drink clear water equivalent to your weight in ounces (you weight 130—drink 130 oz of water a day) No Soda No alcohol until you achieve ideal weight No desserts or baked goods, rice, wheat products until achieve id3al weight Supplements—see below     Exercise Daily Aerobic exercise--for > 40 minutes a day Weight training 3-4 times a week Red Light Therapy especially in the evenings—activate your mitochondria! Directed toward skin for 20 minutes a day Specific red-light therapy –to face or area of pain Natural light in AM Step outside at sunrise or early morning for 15-30 minutes—no sunglasses  Sleep in a dark room with quiet at least 7 hours a night OK to take melatonin at bedtime to sleep      Supplements -Take a multi vitamin every day like Thorne daily Nutrients 2/day + Antioxidants: Vitamins C, A, and E Vitamin D3 Vitamin Bs—Methyl B12, Methyl Folate oral or injections Anti-inflammatory supplements: Aspirin 81 mg/day Milk thistle Curcumin Omega 3 and 6 oils DHA NAC DIM Arteriorisol Minerals: Zinc 30-60/day Magnesium 300-600/day Electrolytes: especially in summer during exercise NUUN supplement Increase Nitric oxide and keep BP less than 140/90 Neo 40 RX Cialis daily 2.5- 5 mg/day Eat beets—lots of them Non-modifiable risk factors: Race (Am Indians and Blacks have a higher risk) Early age of menopause (without hormone replacement) Genetics: HLA-DR15 tissue type, APO-E ¾. And 4/4 Less than high school education Just a word about genetics. We now know that even if you carry genes for dementia, you can modify your genetics…there is hope!  This new concept is called epigenetics, and it shows that the factors we employ above can put certain dementia genes “to sleep” and activate other genes that are going to make you healthier!  We are no longer a puppet of our genes! Genetic Risk for late-onset Alzheimer's disease (LOAD), the most prevalent dementia, is partially driven by genetics. To identify LOAD risk loci, we performed a large genome-wide association meta-analysis of clinically diagnosed LOAD (94,437 individuals). We confirm 20 previous LOAD risk loci and identify five new genome-wide loci (IQCK, ACE, ADAM10, ADAMTS1, and WWOX), two of which (ADAM10, ACE) were identified in a recent genome-wide association (GWAS)-by-familial-proxy of Alzheimer's or dementia. Fine-mapping of the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) region confirms the neurological and immune-mediated disease haplotype HLA-DR15 as a risk factor for LOAD. Pathway analysis implicates immunity, lipid metabolism, tau binding proteins, and amyloid precursor protein (APP) metabolism, showing that genetic variants affecting APP and Aβ processing are associated not only with early-onset autosomal dominant Alzheimer's disease but also with LOAD. Analyses of risk genes and pathways show enrichment for rare variants (P = 1.32 × 10−7), indicating that additional rare variants remain to be identified. We also identify important genetic correlations between LOAD and traits such as family history of dementia and education. If you're a doc you probably understood this abstract from a recent article ..if not.. disregard.

What is progesterone? This is the calming hormone. Progesterone main job is to get your uterus ready for pregnancy. After you ovulate each month, progesterone helps thicken the lining of the uterus to prepare for a fertilized egg. If there is no fertilized egg, progesterone levels drop and menstruation begins.

Does Estrogen Cause Breast Cancer? The "Change of Life" and the Quality of Life Matters of the Heart Breaking Bad Losing and Using Our Minds Can Breast Cancer Survivors Take Estrogen? Progesterone and the Pill Debates, Decisions, and Final Lessons in the Case for HRT That is a list of chapter titles in the book, Estrogen Matters: Why Taking Hormones in Menopause Can Improve Women's Well-Being and Lengthen Their Lives—Without Raising the Risk of Breast Cancer by medical oncologist Avrum Bluming, MD, and social psychologist, Carol Tavris, PhD.  I was introduced to the book by my former PCP, Dr. Melody Rodarte, DO. It reads like a thriller. The introduction is even called, "Who Killed HRT?" The authors tell a riveting story. Over 20 years ago, they indicate that a poorly conceived and misinformed study from the Women's Health Initiative (WHI) swept through the medical community, indicating a causal connection of estrogen and breast cancer and demonizing the use of estrogen to treat menopausal women.  "... We will show in a close examination of the WHI studies, some of those claims were exaggerated, some were misleading, and some were just wrong—and several of the WHI investigators themselves eventually backed away from them." The book delivers the goods, names names, and provides more than 50 pages of referenced articles and studies to back up their claims that "estrogen matters."  "But wait, Jan! My oncologist has told me ... " Yes, I totally understand. Mine has told me the same things. You'll hear my story in the interview. Now that I've read the book, I'm sending my onc a copy and begging her to look into it. You might consider doing the same thing. This quote in the book says it all. "All scientific work is incomplete—whether it be observational or experimental. All scientific work is liable to be upset or modified by advancing knowledge. That does not confer upon us a freedom to ignore the knowledge we already have, or to postpone the action that it appears to demand at a given time." —Austin Bradford Hill, 1965 (Hill is the British biostatistician who pioneered the randomized clinical trial) Why should we even consider using estrogen as women who have gone through breast cancer treatment? Here are a few reasons from the book's back cover. "There is no current way to prevent or treat Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia—except estrogen." "Seven times as many women die of heart disease as die of breast cancer annually. In fact, heart disease, not cancer, is the leading cause of death among breast cancer survivors, and HRT can decrease that risk by 30 to 50 percent." "The same number of women die annually following osteoporotic hip fracture as die of breast cancer, and HRT can cut this risk in half." "There is no evidence to support the current medical advice to take HRT at the lowest dose for the shortest period of time." "HRT is the most effective treatment for all menopausal symptoms, not only the familiar hot flashes, night sweats, and insomnia—which can last seven years or longer—but also heart palpitations, joint and muscle aches, headaches, bladder problems, sexual discomforts, and depression, which many women do not realize are often signs of menopause as well." "Women taking HRT live, on average, several years longer than those not taking it." "Estrogen does not increase the risk of breast cancer. Breast cancer is not a disease, as some professionals believe, 'of having too much estrogen in your body.' Even breast cancer survivors may safely take HRT under a doctor's supervision, and it will not increase their risk of recurrence." Please read it yourself. Do your own research. Discuss it with your providers. Be your own advocate.  Find out more about the book on their website at Estrogen Matters.
