She was inside the belly of the beast for 20 years, doing her best to help heal sick people. As she watched the healthcare system deteriorate and morph into something that actively prevented healing, she knew she had to make a change. A healthcare crisis of her own cemented the deal.
Cynthia Thurlow is a Nurse Practitioner specializing in cardiology. And she left the medical system so that she could help people heal. Today, she's a social media phenom, the creator of a viral TedX talk, a trusted voice on all things health-related for peri-menipausal and post-meno-pausal women, and an advocate for intermittent fasting as a health strategy.
This 68 minute conversation flew by. You'll enjoy it too.
