Favorite Health Podcast

I love the WCTC Podcast. As someone who believes in proactive health, it’s a must listen. I’ve discovered many great local providers through this show. Excited to keep following along and discover more hidden health gems throughout the Minneapolis area.

Get a feel for provider fit- for free!

The way Cynthia interviews providers allows me to get to know each doctor and healer as an individual and imagine what it would be like to work with them. All without having to invest in an intake appointment blindly - thank you!!
