The Cabral Concept with Dr. Stephen Cabral

By: Ben Brown

Whether you’ve recently been diagnosed with or are suffering from a chronic illness, this podcast with Dr. Stephen Cabral can help give you the tools to take back your health and possibly even get you off of your medications.


If you’re on cholesterol medication, if you’re on blood pressure medication, if you have Hashimoto’s, what’s the end goal? Is the end goal to literally stay medicated for the rest of your life? To me, that doesn’t make sense.


Stephen is a board-certified naturopathic doctor, founder of the Cabral Wellness Institute in Boston and founder of


Stephen’s interest in medicine started when he was diagnosed with a host of “incurable” health issues including Addison’s disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Type 2 Diabetes. He saw more than 50 doctors and tried more than 100 treatment protocols without success. Unwilling to accept his fate, Stephen immersed himself in the world of functional medicine. It was then that he found relief from his ailments.


Following his success with his own health, Stephen decided to go to school to become a naturopathic physician. During his studies, Stephen completed internships around the world where he discovered how to combine ancient Ayurvedic healing practices with state-of-the-art naturopathic and functional medicine to fully rebalance and re-energize the body.


Now, Stephen uses functional medicine lab testing and personalized wellness plans to help clients rebalance their mind and body to recover from autoimmune, thyroid, fatigue, hormone, weight gain, digestive, mood, skin, and dozens of other hard to treat health conditions. He is living proof that you absolutely can get well again.


During our discussion, Stephen and I talk about the origin of dis-ease and what he views as the perfect diet. We also dive deep into the detoxification process and different lab testing methodology people can use to identify toxic overload. I think you’re really going to enjoy this podcast and Stephen’s message of hope, especially if you’re suffering from chronic health problems.
