My mission is to educate, empower and encourage people,

so that they can reclaim their health, and live their lives to the fullest.

Dear Event Planner,

 I’m Dr. Cynthia Libert, a board certified family physician who’s stepped out of the box of conventional medicine. In 2019 I founded Caring for the Body, PLLC, a private integrative medicine practice in Asheville, NC. I help people recover from complex, chronic illnesses so that they can live their lives to the fullest.
My special interest is in brain health, specifically the mind-body connection and the prevention and reversal of cognitive decline. I am fascinated by the gut microbiome and the gut-brain axis.  I speak to groups and teach at the intersection of neuroscience, lifestyle medicine, and Christian spirituality.

Joy Prescription Community members have access to my online course “Happy Brain, Healthy Body: How to Prevent and Reverse Chronic Disease, Build Stress Resilience & Create Vibrant Health.”  We also meet monthly for virtual Soul Care group sessions to provide a sacred space for members to give and receive support and encouragement on their health journeys.
I am in the process of writing an instructional memoir with a working title of The Joy Prescription: Transform Your Health with Biblical Wisdom & Lifestyle Medicine.  I live with my husband of 20+ years and our three daughters in the mountains just outside of Asheville, North Carolina.
I have been speaking to local community groups on health topics for over a decade, however, God is calling me to step out and share the gospel as a part of my work.
My heart and my ultimate goal is to point others to Jesus, the great Physician and help people find JOY on their journey! 
To this end I have developed two signature talks:
  • Stress Resilience – A Whole Body Approach for Vibrant Mental, Physical & Spiritual Health
  • Will God Heal Me? – How to Choose Joy in the Midst of Seemingly Unanswered Prayers.
I’m all in with my mission to share the Joy Prescription with the world. My goal is to communicate life transforming information with audiences, so I am diligently working to hone my craft of being a Christian communicator.  I have trained with author and speaker, Amy Carroll with Next Steps Coaching, for message development. I attended the 2021 SpeakUP conference with Carol Kent and faculty, and the She Speaks Conference with Lisa TerKeurst of Proverbs 31 Ministries in 2018. I’m currently learning from Lisa-Jo Baker through the Ministry to Business Huddle, and am enrolled in a year-long intensive mentorship with Shannon Ehtridge, speaker and best-selling author.
I welcome invitations for speaking opportunities – women’s events, community groups, retreats, in-person or virtual. Feel free to explore my speakers page to learn more about my speaking ministry. Please reach out to me if you think we may be  a good fit to work together. Thank you for your interest in my work, and I look forward to hearing from you!  
Joyfully yours,
Cynthia Libert

As an integrative physician and follower of Jesus, I have a deep appreciation for how our bodies are innately designed to heal.  The word “doctor” derives from the Latin “docere,” which means “to teach.” Teaching is my passion – it’s what drew me to became a doctor in the first place.

My unique Happy Brain, Healthy Body approach to lifestyle medicine is holistic and transformative – and is how I healed my own brain and body.

I would love to share my messages of hope and healing with you!
