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:

Suzanne: Hi Dr Cabral.. I’m very interested in a very good collagen supplement but have read that it’s not good for someone who has had breast cancer in the past, so this makes me apprehensive. Can you please provide your thoughts on this? Thank you Suzanne

Maria: Hi Dr! The book I’m currently reading says to it is best to avoid microwaving starchy foods as the high heat turns starch into ‘advanced glycation end products’, which can build up in the body and damage organs. I don’t often use the microwave but I know many people do, so was wondering if you have heard of this. Thanks!

Paula: Hi! What are your thoughts on fitbits or Apple Watches due to EMFs? I wear it to track my steps and sleep :)

Troy: Hi Dr. Cabral, You recently joined us on our “podcast” show and we are grateful for everyone minute spent with you. Your work is life changing. Thank you for everything you do. Question: My wife has had trouble breathing over the last few years and was diagnosed with idiopathic subglottic tracheal stenosis. We are looking for naturopathic ways to treat the issue and prevent breathing problems from reoccurring. My wife has had surgery to go in a laser out the damaged scar tissue blocking the trachea and his being recommended for another surgery that will include chemo. With being a family that strongly believes in naturopathic healing, we are in need of help for other options. Thank you for your consideration in helping us build a better plan. Troy

Kenzie: I have heartburn pretty often. I tried the HCL betaine with pepsin as I suspected I had low stomach acid. I took one capsule and experienced a lot of discomfort in my chest in nausea. Does this mean I don’t have low stomach acid? What should be my next steps to figuring out why I get heartburn?

John: Hi Dr. Cabral - I did the food sensitivity test provided by EquiLife and scored High for all foods in the Dairy group besides Sheep's Yogurt and Beta-Lactogobulin which were Low. I don't notice bloating with Whey, but I scored High on that as well. Considering this, do you think I can use Ghee? Would I have to wait until I have a food sensitivity test where the levels aren't High for all dairy foods? Thank you for your time.
