"People make assumptions, oh, it's common to be obese and overweight by x age. It's common to have aches and pains. It's common to have poor sleep and how so many of us have been conditioned to accept these things, and I'll be the first person to say that does not have to be our destiny. So, a lot of the work that I do is helping people understand the net impact of these lifestyle choices and how we can make better choices.” [00:05:52] - Cynthia Thurlow
"I think for many people they get fixated just on the exterior and not enough internal work, and that's the most important work, is what we do in terms of, you know, supporting ourselves spiritually, mentally, physiologically." [00:13:40] - Cynthia Thurlow
