Vibrant Heart And Mind – Balance Imperatives
Dr. Cynthia Thaik, La Canada Flintridge, CA – Harvard-trained cardiologist, functional medicine doctor, holistic practitioner, author of Your Vibrant Heart, has provided a deeply informed medical practice for over 25 years. “We are shifting the medical community’s current paradigm of symptom and disease-based model of practice. We are changing that paradigm into one that fosters and actively promotes wellness.” Listen up as she encourages moving from a passivity model to a participatory, active form of heart and brain health.
Dr. Thaik’s Activities
Dr. Thaik is a Los Angeles cardiologist who practices with her heart. She helps replace stress, fear, anxiety in her patients and instills a sense of inner calm and peace by educating and inspiring them to take proactive steps towards health and healing. She has helped thousands of people transform their lives through the ways they think, feel, and act through her Vibrant Heart strategies.
Intuitively, Dr. Thaik 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 Myanmar, 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.
This childhood experience laid dormant deep within her as she navigated her American life, completed her modern medical training at Harvard Medical School, and subsequently began practicing Western medicine. It wasn’t until the opening of her wellness center three years ago – where she guided her patients to experience tremendous improvement in their health and well-being through integrative lifestyle practices. Today she focuses on vibrant heart recovery through nutrition, fitness, and spiritual or meditative practices – through her use of those early, reawakened childhood memories of the art of self-directed healing.
Her Practice Principles Applied Personally
Rediscovering her life purpose has inserted authenticity to her work and filled her with joy, energy, and spirit. She believes the mind-body connection for health occurs through the practice of being centered and present in each moment. A practicing Buddhist, Dr. Thaik is on a mission to deliver her Vibrant Heart message, best outlined in her new book. Interesting here: how the brain and heart are connected.

- Podcast 107 (Brain Health) - Very informative!April 13, 2017 by ad1978mke from United States
I especially liked this Podcast because it provided a wealth of valuable brain health research and tips in an approachable, easy-to-listen-to format. The rapport between the Guest Speaker (Dr. Braun) and Host (Dr. Parker) was evident, and I hope to hear another Podcast with this Guest Speaker!
- Top quality informationFebruary 5, 2017 by MD Ireland from Ireland
As a functional medicine doc I found this iterview stimulating, inspiring and it is full of clinically useful information
- FascinatingFebruary 1, 2017 by jinki1 from United States
If you love science and psychology, then this is for you. The brain is such a mysterious machine, and listening to experts discuss how it works is fascinating. This seems like a pick-and-choose type podcast: I'll skip the shows focusing on estrogen and alzeimer's and go for creativity, anxiety, music, and others. But what I've listened to so far is great.
- My Brain Thanks You!January 13, 2017 by B. Keenan Johnston from United States
Thanks for shedding some much needed light on issues of the brain. I recently became interested in the subject when I was listening to NPR do a segment on neuroplasticity. I could never remember the name of the author, but it helped me find this great podcast!
- Flipping Junkie ReviewDecember 23, 2016 by Danny Johnson -Flipping Junkie from United States
Awesome podcast! I really loved the bipolar episode. Wonderful insight into these issues. Keep up the good work!
- “How I Found Myself” Dean RobertsDecember 2, 2016 by Don Hutcheson from United States
I just had the pleasure of listening to Dr. Charles Parker’s latest interview with Mr. Dean Roberts on the topic: “How I Found Myself.” The thesis of this remarkable podcast is that the difference between treatment success and failure for conditions such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD and others is often the result of omitting crucial brain, biomedical, and functional neuroscience information and insights. Well done and much-needed. Wish you continuing success!
