Food is Medicine with Dr. Stephen Cabral

FitFluential Radio

Release Date: 02/08/2018

Dr. Stephen Cabral is a board-certified Naturopathic Doctor whose passion for health and wellness stemmed from having experienced severe health complications at the young age of 17. Over fifty doctors and one hundred different treatment protocols couldn’t find out what was wrong with his body and it appeared all hope was lost. It wasn’t until he found the concept of alternative medicine from a doctor who specializes in natural and functional medicine that he began his recovery process. He has since devoted his life to helping others rebalance their bodies and renew their health.

In this episode, Dr. Stephen Cabral describes his journey into health and wellness that started with his health problems. He shares the doctors he consulted with, the procedures that didn’t work for him, and when he finally found out how to cure his illness. He also explains what a typical day at his clinic looks like, the common patients he encounters, and shares some of his thoughts on self-diagnosis and analysis paralysis.


“Everyone has a genetic predisposition, but that doesn't mean it has to be your destiny.” Dr. Stephen Cabral


In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Where his fitness journey started.
  • Why a blood test isn't enough to determine your health.
  • What he notices in his patients when they start working with him.
  • The first step in taking the journey in finding out what's wrong.
  • The common problems he sees when patients come to him.
  • His thoughts on doing a ketogenic diet.

Key Takeaways:

  • The body will heal itself when you discover, replace, and remove your deficiencies and toxicities
  • There's a time and place for every form of medicine, but we can't have every person fit in one little, nice, neat bucket.
  • 95% of all health issues are lifestyle and environment created.
  • Inflammation is a really good symptom, not a disease. It tells you there's something wrong deep within your body
