No-Hype Holistic Health Solutions

Looking for honest, practical and hype-free holistic health strategies that get to the root of the problem?

Hi, I'm Cynthia Perkins, M.Ed., and like many of you, I know first hand what it's like to live with the challenges of chronic illness and chronic pain.  I'm also a trained mental health professional and a holistic health counselor.  This combination puts me in a unique position where I can offer professional guidance with the added touch of deep understanding that can come only through personal experience.

Through my personal and professional experience I have found that, regardless of the diagnosis, at the root of most mental and physical health conditions, including chronic pain, are one or more of the following:
  • Poor Diet
  • Nutritional Deficiencies or Imbalances
  • Chronic Stress & Autonomic Nervous System Dysfunction
  • Candida Overgrowth or other Dysbiosis
  • Environmental Toxins
When these core factors are addressed, significant, and sometimes dramatic, improvements in your mental and physical health can be made. On this site I will share with you the facts about each of these elements, their relationship to your health and the steps needed to confront them.

One of the cornerstones of holistic health is the patients involvement in self-care. Although a competent health care professional should be consulted for all health conditions, self-care is a crucial component of the healing process because it empowers you and enhances whatever treatment approach you follow.

I will assist you by providing you with the information you need to build an effective self-care plan that enables you to become an informed consumer and work as a partner with your health care provider. You will learn how to optimize your physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual health using the Paleo diet, green living, mindfulness, functional medicine tests and a variety of other holistic self-care strategies.
