    Who is Cynthia Thurlow?
    She has worked in clinical medicine, both in the ER and cardiology, for nearly 20 years. Although she respects the power of conventional medicine to treat disease and save lives, she began to think more about the root causes of chronic health issues. Soon, she recognized the powerful relationship between food and her patients’ health and wellness. This led her to do advanced training in nutrition and functional testing so I could help others enjoy optimal health before they needed emergency care.
     
    She is currently a nurse practitioner, intermittent fasting and nutrition expert, and a two-time TEDx speaker. She is passionate about helping women find wellness through the healing power of nutrition and fasting. She believes it is possible to feel better tomorrow than you do today and wants to equip you to experience that freedom!

    (42:10) Outro
     
    Who is Dr. Torkil Faero?



    Torkil is the driving force behind the book The Pulse Cure and the social website thepulsecure.com.
     
    He is a general practitioner and emergency doctor, documentary filmmaker, author, photographer and globetrotter. As a medical student, he was the first to go abroad for Norwegian Doctors Without Borders when he worked in war-torn Angola in 1996. Through 25 years as a freelance doctor, he has worked in municipalities all over the country, had tens of thousands of consultations and gained a unique picture of the diseases that plague us. He has learned that the cause is most often found in a lifestyle that stresses our body. He wanted to do something about that.
     
    Torkil is concerned with how we can get the most out of life. In the book The Pulse Cure, he explains step by step how we can use the heart rate monitor or the smartphone to get to know our own body better and gain better control of the stress balance and the autonomic nervous system.
     
    Torkil himself has been given a new life by making several smart lifestyle changes. His hope is that everyone who wants better health and more energy to live life to the fullest will benefit from the measures he himself enjoys so much. He also has a big wish for the healthcare system: That it works preventively to a much greater extent and provides help for self-help than is the case today.
     
    Torkil Færø is also an award-winning photographer who has published photography art books, held exhibitions, and held photography workshops in many countries. He is an enthusiastic long-distance walker and has made the NRK films about pilgrimages to Nidaros and Santiago de Compostela. In his previous book, THE CAMERA CURE, he combined medical and photographic knowledge into a unique book about therapeutic photography, where coping with life is combined with taking good pictures. Faero has traveled by backpack, bicycle, motorbike, kayak, boat, and car in over 80 countries and speaks eight languages. Torkil is married to Tone, who is also part of the team at Pulskuren.

Excellent podcast

Recently found this podcast and really enjoy it! Loved your conversation with Maggie and Brad Jones about her journey surviving cancer after given a 1% survival rate. The information shared in this episode is so incredibly valuable and hopeful. What really resonated with me was the importance of our diet, especially a ketogenic diet. Looking forward to their documentary! Thank you for the tons of amazing takeaways to help people in this episode!

Great information and guests!

I was already using Peak Performance supplements when I learned about this podcast. The information and guests are great! I love the variety and relevance of the topics. The episodes are easy to listen to and not too lengthy. Especially loved episode 115 on how to sugar proof your kids. More kid-related episodes please! Thanks Peak Performance!
