Graduating in 1994, Dr. Tanzar served her patients through chiropractic and nutrition, until making the decision to stay at home with their child.

She now uses these skills in helping others with similar or related conditions, in addition to teaching clients to avoid the pitfalls of poor health through proper nutrition. Because of Dr. Cindy’s passion to help others reach their full potential physically, emotionally and spiritually, she has taught classes for more than a decade on helping women find their true worth through Christ.
