From vegan, paleo, low carb, high carb, raw, vegetarian to pescetarian the list goes on and on. No wonder so many people are confused about what to eat and what the ideal diet is for them. It’s confusing as heck, but today’s guest Dr Stephen Cabral is going to bust a whole lot of myths and tell you once and for all what the best diet is for you.

Dr Stephen Cabral is a board certified naturopathic doctor and founder of the Cabral Wellness Institute and StephenCabral.com

At 17 years old, Stephen was diagnosed with a life-altering illness and given no hope for recovery. Everyday, he suffered endlessly for many years. It was only after Stephen traveled all over the world and discovered how to combine ancient Ayurvedic healing practices with state-of-the-art Naturopathic and Functional Medicine did he understand how to fully rebalance the body and re-energize it with life.

Today in Dr. Cabral’s online and Boston practice, where he and his team have completed over 200,000 client appointments, he uses Functional Medicine lab testing and Personalized Wellness Plans to help people rebalance their mind and body to recover from auto-immune, thyroid, fatigue, hormone, weight gain, digestive, mood, skin, and dozens of other hard to treat health conditions.

His mission is to help people understand that there is always a reason why you have not achieved your ideal wellness or weight loss goals and that you can and will get well again.

    Melissa I absolutely loved this podcast. I finished listening and had a list of things that I wanted to research more. I’m a sport scientist working with athletes, studying naturopathy and looking into functional medicine. I connected with so much that was said and has given me some direction of where I want to go with my studies. Love all your podcasts and I’m so happy that Welleco are sponsoring the show. I’ve been using their products for 6 months and feel so much better.
    Thank you for all your inspiring podcasts.

    What a powerful podcast! It has left me feeling increadibly emprowered and thirsty. Thirsty to know more! And to dive in deep. There was so many juicy bits that really really resonated with me! Kind of like the missing link. The thing is I have been told this all before, but this silly sussage didn’t open wide. Please know that I am genuinley greatful of how much this podcast has helped heal me! Thank you!!!

    I really found value in this episode. It reinforced the concept of bio-individuality and reminded me that what works for me might not be the best for everyone else.

    Loved this episode Melissa, a big thankyou to Stephen for not holding back. I’m very intrigued by his practices and look forward to subscribing to his podcasts! I was diagnosed as a Coeliac in 2007, Dairy Intolerant in 2015 & now IBS – a lot of the time I feel lost but I think I may have found something that can help me! Thanks again, love tuning into your podcast weekly! x

    I get so excited when I plan my walk knowing that I will be listening to one of your podcasts.
    Today I literally had goosebumps & probably ‘ahaaa’ out loud. Wow!!!
    Dr Stephen fed my hunger for all things health & well being. I just can’t get enough.
    Even contemplating doing some study of my own.
    Thank, thank you Melissa for delivering such awesome podcasts.

    Hi Melissa, thanks for another fantastic episode – love your podcasts!
    Can you recommend a functional medicine doctor in Sydney? Dr Cabral sounds amazing but I’d prefer to work with someone more nearby. Thanks!

    Sensational podcast, Mel!! One of my favs so far (let’s be real, they are all amazing poddies though). Such pertinent insights from Stephen that have arrived in my ears at the right time. Thanks team!!

  11. Aubrey Rice says:

    O..M..G! Melissa thank you for having such rock star guests! It was amazing to hear from a clinician with so much personal experience with lab results backing up bio-individuality. I always teach others the importance of listening to their body and will definitely add this podcast to the arsenal of information to pass along. Already shared it with loads of friends and family 🙂 Thinking a deeper dive into studying physical body types will be a game changer when I start my practice back up. Your light is truly amazing, thank you for all you do and share!
