And on this week’s show!

This week, I interview Dr Stephen Cabral, founder of the EquiLife & the Integrative Health PractitionerInstitute, and Author of the International Best-Selling Book, The Rain Barrel Effect. As a naturopathic doctor, Stephen has helped many around the world and it all started for him when the myriad of health issues in his late teens wasn’t healed conventionally. Steph has performed his studies around the world and brings an east meets west holistic healing approach to his patients. Today we talk about the most common issues that trouble us today, from metabolic disease to thyroid, digestive and immune and what some of the biggest drivers for whole-body health healing are. Enjoy the show!

Questions I asked Stephen:

  1. Can we talk about your wake-up call and journey towards doing what you do today stemming from a personal health crisis? 
  2. If you look at public health stats (feel free to share some major ones) we are more chronically unwell than we’ve ever been and it’s not just adults, children’s health is suffering too. A lot of people with holistic health views seem to be leaving the system – is this a good thing? Do we not need to fix things from the inside? 
  3. And in terms of the biggest offenders when it comes to health sabotage – what floats to the top for you as the most significant impacts? 
  4. Metabolic/endocrine health is obviously huge when it comes to resilience, immune health, healthy weight, and reducing overall risk factors for a disease but often people find it hard to connect to root causes = especially when they’ve adjusted food, started eating better, and think “but I’m doing everything right” – what other places can people look when things are off in these areas? 
  5. How do we find peace and personal truth in the ‘eat healthy’ exercise healthy when there are narratives out there that contradict each other? 
  6. I don’t know anyone who hasn’t experienced digestive issues over the years – how useful are diagnoses such as IBS or Crohn’s – do they not make us feel like we’re at the endpoint instead of a ‘now come the solutions point’? 
  7. How can we balance conventional treatments and naturopath medicine when something like SIBO or H Pylori hits (maybe chat about what each of these present as?) 
  8. And how important is an individualised diet for patients in their recovery? 
  9. Is this why you’re a fan of the ayurvedic approach focusing on different constitutions/body types?
  10. What do you believe is a core set of values and disciplines to feel one’s best and also feel healthy in the mind as we go about that (ie we don’t want to be stressed out of our mind following protocols)

About Dr. Stephen Cabral:

Dr. Stephen Cabral developed his passion for health & wellness after going through severe health complications at the age of 17. He saw over 50 different doctors, tried over 100 different treatment protocols, but still saw no hope of

It wasn’t until he met an “alternative” health doctor, who explained where his health complications came from and how he could become well again, that he began his recovery process. It was at this young age that Dr. Cabral knew his life would be dedicated to helping others rebalance their bodies and renew their health.

This led Dr. Cabral to study in the US, completing doctoral intern work overseas, studying with the top doctors, hospitals, and clinics in India, Sri Lanka, China, and Europe. Studying abroad helped Dr. Cabral to develop a completely unique integrative perspective which now allows him to truly uncover the root cause of many elusive health conditions. Dr. of Naturopathy, Ayurvedic and Functional Medicine Specialist, Author of the International Best-Selling Book, The Rain Barrel Effect.
