Cynthia Thaik, M.D., is a Harvard-trained cardiologist who focuses on the mind-body connection to help her patients achieve overall health and wellness. She is board-certified in noninvasive cardiology and internal medicine and has been practicing medicine for over 20 years, specializing in women’s health, cardiovascular health and congestive heart failure.
In her book Your Vibrant Heart, Dr. Cynthia unites Eastern and Western medicine to take a whole-life approach to heart health. Your Vibrant Heart guides readers down a path of mindfulness and personal responsibility—a path that Dr. Cynthia has walked personally, transforming herself from a Western-trained cardiologist who exclusively practiced modern, conventional medicine into a well-rounded physician who runs a holistic practice that incorporates mindfulness, Eastern philosophy and the mind-body-soul connection into patients’ health and lives as a whole.
Dr. Cynthia studied at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine and Harvard Medical School and trained at Beth Israel, Massachusetts General and Brigham and Women’s hospitals. Dr. Thaik is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at University of California, Los Angeles School of Medicine and the Co-Director of the Women’s Cardiac Risk Screening Program at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Burbank. She is a member of Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, PCRM, and a recipient of the Cardiovascular Research Award from the American College of Cardiology, 1995.
