Cyndy graduated with a Masters in Pharmacy from the University of Washington in 1972. After working in a community pharmacy for several years, she came to believe that if she was going to achieve her goal of making a real difference in people’s lives, conventional medicine and pharmaceuticals might not offer the best solutions.
Her first “Integrative” certification was in hypnotherapy, building a large private practice in Hood River, Oregon. Cyndy developed a special passion for dietary wellness counseling and various forms of energy healing work, in addition to the use of hypnotherapy developing a unique program based on ‘feeding a hungry heart’.
The inspiration for this book came after a serious auto accident which left her unable to do the things she loved. Hiking, swimming and gardening were lost to her because of neck and back injuries. A debilitating TBI (concussive injury) caused memory loss and loss of basic skills in cognitive processing, verbal communication and social skills. The effects on her life were profound and compounded by PTSD and frequent severe anxiety attacks. She set out on a path of self healing. Along the way, she decided to put her life-long acquired knowledge about healthy eating and its importance into a book.
Recently she served on staff at the GARM (Global Alliance for Regenerative Medicine) clinic in Roatan, Honduras as dietary counselor and coach, hypnotherapist, and Tai Chi instructor. She is now living in Palm Springs and works with Mo’tus Wellness Center, offering classes and individual session work on dietary wellness and hypnotherapy. Her web site is healyourlife.info.
