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.

My Journey

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.

result, excuse me, failure
Frankly, there is a lot of misinformation and hype out there … in both mainstream medicine and the alternative health field. All of which can lead to mass confusion and paralyzation and time wasted, rather than healing. 
I strive to cut-to-the-chase and provide you with empowering self-care strategies that are honest, realistic, practical, cost-effective, and hype-free. 
Most of what I know and teach to my clients has been learned through first-hand personal experience, which enables me to discern between hype and truth with ease and provide you with professional guidance that gets results.
