When you feel like you have tried everything, spent thousands of dollars on endless supplements, practitioners, doctors, protocols, diets, tests and nothing can give you the answers you need, all you feel is helpless and without hope of ever getting well again. That is exactly how I felt until I found my holy grail of health! And oh my, I thank my lucky stars for finding the incredible human that is Dr Stephen Cabral.
Dr Cabral is a Naturopath, Ayurvedic, Functional Medicine & Integrative Health Practitioner who went on a journey to heal himself after experiencing 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 who 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. Dr Cabral who after 2 decades of research, reading 3,000+ books, and 150,000+ client sessions has uncovered exactly what works – and why. His motto Is ‘CHANGE YOUR BODY CHANGE YOUR LIFE’ and that’s exactly what he helps people do! I have been lucky enough to test his theory (the Cabral Concept) and see incredible results. His theory is based on testing the body for imbalances and re-correcting via lifestyle and supplement protocols to bring the body back to equilibrium.
My main mission in getting well was not only to just regain my health so that I can improve my quality of life but not so long ago I went to see a very well known subspecialist in reproductive endocrinology and infertility to better understand the issues I was having with my cycle and investigate to ensure that there was no major issues that would stop me from having children. I knew something wasn’t quite right and wanted answers before I started trying for a family and found out too late down the track. This particular specialist did some investigative surgery and confirmed not only that I had Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) but part of my right fallopian tube was actually dead and had to be repaired. His professional opinion was that my best chance to have a family was to go through IVF due to the PCOS and fallopian tube damages. My whole body didn’t accept this method as I was so sensitive to chemicals and I didn’t want to go down this path at that early stage. In my determined ways I decided that wasn’t the path for me and I wanted to try more naturally first.
I worked my butt off doing the Cabral protocols, using a FAR Infrared Sauna (to eliminate toxins), seeing an amazing chiropractor who treats using kinesiology, used doTERRA Essential Oils (in particular ClaryCalm), practicing self love, meditation, journaling, moving my body- daily, eating as organic as possible, being mindful of dangerous Electro Magnetic Frequency (EMF) more on this later, reading quality health literature, tongue scraping, reducing stress and toxic chemicals and doing more of the things I love. Within a matter of months of completing my protocols and doing the above mentioned things not only did I feel amazing and a lot of my symptoms went away I also fell pregnant naturally and in October of 2019 gave birth to a healthy son.
To say I got my life back is an understatement and because of this amazing human and his protocols I was able to live out my lifelong dream of becoming a mother. I now feel it is my service to share my experience with the world. I want to pay it forward and help others heal and live the life that they always dreamt of living. Without your health there really isn't any drive to live out your dreams... trust me I have been in the pits of agony and didn't think I would find my way out until I did.
From what I have learnt, yes having mentors to guide you in the right direction is important but for the remaining 23 hours of each day the healing power is in your own hands to show up and do the things you need to do especially when you don't feel like it. Although I have come a long way on my health journey I still have a long way to go to reach my health goals however I now have the blue print to achieve this which lights me up from the inside!
So many people take their health for granted and the interesting thing is that many people's bodies are suffering but the symptoms haven't quite hit yet and won’t surface until later in life. Our bodies were not made to deal with all the toxic chemicals in our food, products and environment that we endure day in and out. In the near future I will be studying to become an Integrative Health Practitioner that will allow me to coach you so that you too can achieve wellness again so stay tuned for this amazingness!
I am passionate about sharing my health journey in the hope it will help others improve their health. Instead of taking 10 years like it did to me it is accessible now! I have a bachelor of Public Health with Majors of Nutrition and Health Promotion. I will soon be undertaking an Integrative Health Practitioner Certification.
