    This book by Dr. Cynthis Thaik is a fascinating read. I like boo

    This book by Dr. Cynthis Thaik is a fascinating read. I like books that intersect cross disciplines. I have read books on health, wellness, spirituality and running. Being a vegetarian all through and converted to vegan, I am always looking for solid books. This book falls into that category and the mind-body connection is very well established. I loved the introduction how the author got motivated to write this book. I like the way the book is woven. Talking about diseases with real world examples drives the point very clear. Liked the explanation on heart disease, obesity and other lifestyle based diseases and how to prevent them. Many of the chapters are delightful or (scary) to read. I applaud the author for making bold statements on type of food one should eat. Vegan food is awesome and is recommended! The author explains clearly organic vs non organic food. Fruits, veggies, juicing are all explained.

    I particularly liked the GMO discussion. I am amazed America is one of the few countries in the world which does not have GMO label. I feel we are all guinea pigs in the eyes of the food industry. So many countries have banned GMO or enforce label. Why is USA and Canada so backward in this regard. $$$$ in my opinion. I again applaud the doctor for her courage in bringing to light these issues.

    Liked the explanations on fitness, yoga and importance of exercise. The other subtler and powerful choices include meditation, controlled breathing are all wonderful. The quotes on the chapters are particularly inspiring.

    Overall I like the holistic approach the author has taken for getting a vibrant heart. There are many dimensions to a healthy lifestyle - knowing oneself, food, activity, knowing one's mind/soul, awareness, one's attitude, one's goal in life -- so many positive aspects. The author has touched so many of the aspects and created a very powerful positive experience and bound to delight readers. Great work!

    ¿Your Vibrant Heart¿ written by Dr. Cynthia Thaik was best summa

    “Your Vibrant Heart” written by Dr. Cynthia Thaik was best summarized by Mary Morrissey who wrote in foreword that her book is “…a powerful prescription for more joyful living that blends poignant stories of love with practical information about the role that emotions and daily choices play in heart health..”




    Dr. Thaik managed to make an interesting and informative book about the heart that is the essence of what we are, providing a range of useful information about this vitally important human organ and tips on how to properly take care of your heart, in terms of nutrition, as well as achieving better mental and physical health.




    The author herself during her life and career has undergone major changes in the way she looks at heart problems and advices she is providing for their prevention and treatment; she gradually transformed from a Harvard-trained cardiologist who practiced exclusively modern and conventional Western medicine to a better-rounded physician with a holistic practice that incorporates mindfulness, Eastern philosophy, and the mind-body-soul connection into health, and into life as a whole.




    Dr. Thaik’s book is not too long, on about 300 pages divided into 10 chapters she discusses heart physiology, heart diseases, healthy nutrition and ways of food preparation that would be good for your heart, heart exercises, ways to improve cardiovascular health, tips how to revive your heart and reinvigorate your mind, and many other details related to our precious heart.




    “Your Vibrant Heart” is written in clear language without too much incomprehensible medical terms which makes it accessible even for the average reader.




    Therefore Dr. Cynthia Thaik’s work can be fully recommended to anyone interested in the prevention of heart diseases and healthy life, but also for those who have heart problems because using the tips in this book they can certainly make their life easier.

    The Vibrant Heart is about as holistic as it gets when consideri

    The Vibrant Heart is about as holistic as it gets when considering overall care of the heart. It takes into account the standard issues based on the anatomy and physiology of the heart. Yes, it includes the routine discussion topics about diseases, cholesterol, stress, exercise and nutrition although not presented in the routine way.

    It also goes much beyond the normal discussions and incorporates the needs of the emotional heart, the spiritual heart, and an array of “alternative” ideas such as color therapy, meditation, laughter, creativity, music, reiki, visualization, acupuncture…the list of topics covered is extensive. There is something for every person to learn about and hopefully utilize to increase overall well-being.

    This book isn’t targeted for those suffering from heart disease. It is targeted for anyone with a beating heart. A solid resource to have for a lifetime of health centered on the heart. If this is not enough…the Forward of the book is written by Dr. Bernie Siegel (one of my heroes). Well written, inspiring, informative, practical & worth the investment.
