About Cynthia Perkins, M.Ed.
— 15+ Years Rock-Solid Experience
Cynthia Perkins, M.Ed. helps clients with chronic health conditions to reduce stress and anxiety, elevate their mental, physical, spiritual health and well-being, take charge of their healing journey, and live life to the fullest via the Paleo diet, mindfulness, deep breathing, non-toxic living, and other self-care strategies.
Educating others is one of my greatest passions, because I believe there are few things in life more empowering than being properly informed. Although a competent health care professional should be consulted for all medical and psychiatric conditions, self-care is a crucial component of the healing journey. You and your practitioner should work together as a team, with you at the helm of the ship.
I help you build a strong self-care plan, move toward a higher level of health with strength and confidence, and improve your quality of life.
Educator, holistic health coach, and author.
Helping you take charge of your healing journey.
I know first hand what it’s like to live with the challenges of a chronic health condition. I’m also a trained mental health professional .
This combination puts me in a unique position where I can offer professional guidance with the added touch of deep understanding that can only be acquired through personal experience.
After a decade of suffering from disabling anxiety attacks, clinical depression, widespread chronic pain, addiction to drugs, alcohol, sugar, and carbs, and compulsive overeating, and a lack of answers from mainstream medicine, I found my relief and recovery in holistic health.
By identifying the underlying contributors to these conditions, getting on a proper diet, and making simple changes in my lifestyle, I was able to overcome these issues.
I have more than 30 years of uninterrupted and craving-free sobriety. I have researched the role of diet, nutrition, microbial overgrowth, and environmental toxins on our physical, mental, and spiritual health and have walked the walk that I teach for more than three decades.
I have helped thousands of individuals with chronic health issues to successfully improve the quality of their lives and move toward a higher level of health and I look forward to helping you.
