Get Empowered to Live Your Best Life Possible
with Cynthia Perkins, M.Ed. and her
Integrative Holistic Health Coaching


"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain." ~ Vivian Greene


As your integrative holistic health coach, we will work together to optimize your physical, emotional/mental, and spiritual health by identifying the potential underlying causes of your symptoms, individualizing your diet, helping you to be thoroughly informed, and creating a strong self-care plan that empowers you to take control of your own healing journey and move forward with strength and confidence.

At the core of my approach is the belief that the foundation for healing is built first and foremost with a diet and lifestyle that encourages health. This means that the food we eat and the way we live should be aligned with Paleo/Primal principles at the base, the way nature intended us to eat and live. While at the same time, recognizing that we are all unique biochemically and the need for individualization.

Your dietary and lifestyle needs will be affected by whatever health condition you may be addressing or the goal you are trying to achieve, and therefore, need to be personalized to address these issues.

  • Get customized dietary and lifestyle suggestions
  • Individualize your Paleo/Primal diet for your personal biochemical needs
  • Identify foods that may be contributing to your symptoms or conditions
  • Overcome cravings for sugar and carbs

During a session with me you can expect to attempt to identify possible underlying contributors of your symptoms, clarify goals, develop a plan of action, get headed in the right direction, receive customized dietary guidelines and lifestyle approaches, troubleshoot roadblocks, a nutritional supplement assessment, supplemental reading material, and lab testing suggestions if desired.

  • Identify root causes of symptoms
  • Clarify your goals
  • Design a plan of action and strong self-care plan
  • Troubleshoot obstacles

From there, we strengthen the foundation with other holistic practices like mindfulness and breathwork and we may use functional medicine lab testing to go deeper or explore other avenues. We will investigate potential issues like microbial overgrowth, neurotransmitter imbalances, sympathetic nervous system activity, environmental toxicity, nutritional imbalances, and more.

Also at the heart of my philosophy is the belief that healing is a life-long journey, not a one-time event. It requires a passionate commitment and dedication to the goal. Sometimes, not all conditions, syndromes, illnesses, or diseases can be completely "healed", but they can, at the very least, be significantly improved and managed with the right interventions.

Being healthy or achieving optimal health is not always defined by the "absence" of disease or illness. It may also mean living and functioning as optimally as possible with your condition. Finding harmony and balance in the midst of the storm, while continuing to strive for a more optimal level of health.

  • Move toward a higher level of health with strength and confidence
  • Improve your quality of life
  • Reduce feelings of fear, helplessness, hopelessness, and loss of control
  • Take control of your healing journey

Last but not least, I hold a firm opinion that responsibility for your health lies in your hands, not your practitioners. My goal is to help you take the reigns and lead the way. Empowerment is found by being as informed as possible about your conditions, the challenges that exist, and the options available to you.

Cynthia's Holistic Health Coaching is Short-term and Goal focused

I can provide you with everything you need to begin moving toward a higher level of health and living your best life possible in one or two sessions, depending on how deep you want to go and the extent of support you would like. I'm not going to lock you into months of unnecessary coaching.

When I come into the initial consult with you, I have already reviewed your intake forms, taken notes for a plan of action, and I'm ready to dive immediately into presenting you with an empowering self-care plan designed specifically for your needs. When you leave the session, you can put these steps into action instantly and begin your journey towards better health.

However, you can benefit greatly from additional sessions by working on a particular issue, concern, technique, remedy, etc, in more depth or for accountability and support. So, I am always here for ongoing consultations if you need or desire to go deeper.

Cynthia's Areas of Expertise

I hold a bachelor's degree in psychology, a master's degree of education in mental health counseling, a certificate of completion in functional medicine, and a certificate of completion in MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction as taught by Jon Kabat-Zinn) and I'm the author of more than ten self-help books.

Furthermore, I have overcome many challenges in my own life like fibromyalgia, disabling anxiety attacks, clinical depression, alcoholism, drug addiction, sugar and carb addiction, and compulsive overeating. So, my expertise comes to you on both a professional and personal level. Additionally, I have been walking the walk of what I teach for more than 30 years.

My integrative holistic health coaching or counseling has helped thousands of people with chronic health conditions of many different kinds to successfully improve the quality of their lives and move toward a higher level of health.

~Amy W.

I thoroughly enjoyed talking to you yesterday. You had answers to questions numerous doctors have never been able to answer!

~Shelley

Indiana


"After struggling with an addiction problem for 26 years, I discovered Cynthia's website, by some miracle and the book "Seven Weeks to Sobriety". After talking with Cynthia only two times, my life changed dramatically for the better. She has more knowledge than any doctor or counselor I have ever talked with. She actually knows what causes the problem. She helped me to determine that I was allergic, that there was actually a physiological or biochemical problem, I wasn't nuts. I took out sugar and caffeine as she suggested, added a few supplements and it's like a light came on. Cravings disappeared and I'm on an "even keel" mentally and emotionally."

~Jane

"I thank you so much Cynthia. You are the greatest thing that's happened to me since I began my healing journey. The best money I've ever spent."
