Blogger Interview With Cynthia Thurlow

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your blog.

Hmm, well, I am a Western medicine nurse practitioner and functional nutritionist…..I have a huge passion for helping clients make connections between symptoms and their lifestyle habits vs just solely prescriptive medications. I’m a thought leader (just completed my 2nd TEDx talk!!)…..I love inspiring women to live their best lives! I’m co-host of a podcast (Everyday Wellness); I’m the creator of a signature program, called Wholistic Blueprint, which dials in on strategies to help support healthy hormones. 

I’m happily married, have two beautiful boys, two crazy doodles and live in the Washington, DC area. When I’m not recovering from a ruptured appendix, you will find me in the gym, cooking or traveling. Next stop…Portugal/Azore and Sri Lanka.
