Dr. Stephen Cabral is a board-certified doctor of naturopathy and founder of the Cabral Wellness Institute.

At the age of 17, Stephen was diagnosed with a life-altering illness and given no hope for recovery.


He saw 50 different doctors; tried more than 100 treatment protocols; 
but continued to suffer for many years - until he
met an “alternative” doctor who set him on the road to recovery, forging his lifelong dedication to helping others rebalance their bodies and renew their health.

Dr. Cabral has travelled the world to intern with doctors in India, Sri Lanka, China, Europe, and throughout the US - ever expanding his knowledge of naturopathy, homotoxicology, 
bioregulatory medicine, ancient Ayurvedic healing practices, and state-of-the-art Functional Medicine lab testing.

Dr. Cabral’s commitment to "paying it forward" has resulted in thousands of patient consultations (specializing in auto-immune, thyroid, fatigue, hormone, weight gain, digestive, mood, skin, and dozens of other hard-to-treat health conditions) as well as a veritable online presence - including Skype consultations, e-books, and a popular daily podcast.


Dr. Cabral firmly believes in bio-individuality; the search for root causes; and the formulation of truly Personalized Wellness Plans to help patients rebalance their minds and bodies.
