My first guest, Harvard-trained, Dr. Cynthia Thaik is a heart doctor that practices with her heart. She delivers security and peace of mind to her clients by orchestrating behavioral and mindset shifts to evoke lasting transformational changes in their health, well-being, vitality, energy, and creativity. She has helped thousands of people make changes to transform their lives through the ways they think, feel, and act. Intuitively, she has known that she would serve this calling since the age of five, after accompanying her physician mother to the medical clinic in their home country of Mayamar, formerly known as Burma. There, she witnessed the pure hands-on art of healing, free from the modern-day challenges of drugs, bureaucracy, and the threat of malpractice.
Dr. Cynthia began her professional training at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. From there, she completed her internal medicine and cardiology training at the Harvard’s training programs (Beth Israel, Massachusetts General, and Brigham & Women’s hospitals). She manages two successful cardiology clinics and is the founder of Revitalize-U, a wellness center focused on health, nutrition, weight loss, and detoxification. Beyond her academic and professional achievements, she is most proud of the praises that she receives from her patients: caring, compassionate, service oriented, and excellence are words used to describe her style of practice.’
Dr Cynthia believes the mind-body connection for health is best served through the practice of being centered and present in each moment. A practicing Buddhist, Dr. Cynthia is now on a mission to deliver that message about healing through her new book, Your Vibrant Heart: Restoring Health, Strength & Spirit from the Body’s Core.
Dr. Thaik has received numerous awards and honors including the Cardiovascular Research Award from the American College of Cardiology and the L.A. Business Journal “Women Making a Difference” nomination in 2005. :In addition to her book she has published several peer reviewed articles in professional journals and is involved in her professional organizations.
