Meet Our Founder, Stephen Cabral!

boston naturopathic doctorStephen Cabral

Functional Medicine Practitioner
Doctorate of Functional Medicine Practitionery
Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner


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 recovery.

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


After almost 20 years and over 600,000 pages of research study completed, dozens of certifications in the natural health field, over 16,000 health & fitness client sessions, and a doctoral degree in Functional Medicine Practitionery, you can rest assured that Dr. Cabral’s knowledge, experience, and compassion are at the top of his field.

Dr. Cabral also spent over 5,000 hours of formal doctoral degree work, which included 2,200 hours of internships. These internships were mainly spent overseas studying the very best of natural medicine (much of which is unknown here in the US).

His internships included actually studying, working, and living in clinics all around the world. This intimate setting allowed Dr. Cabral to talk in depth with the patients at these clinics and listen to their struggles and path to wellness. He also got to see first hand the remarkable recoveries these people were making. Some of these internship locations included India, Sri Lanka, China, Europe, and various practices in the US.

(Please note that Dr. Cabral is not a licensed ND in the state of Massachusetts. You would be working with him in the capacity of as a Functional Medicine Practitioner and not as a licensed Medical Doctor or Functional Medicine Practitioneric Doctor.)
