Hi, I'm Joyce!

I've always had an interest in using more natural things at home.

Degrees in Geology, Environment & Natural Resources, and later in Hydrogeology (groundwater movement & contamination) made me aware of the impact synthetic (man-made) chemicals had on the environment and on us!

But it was several personal health issues in my 30’s and 40's that drove me beyond natural cleaning at home into an avid interest in personal health.

Repeatedly, (under different health situations) I was told by medical professionals that "this was just the way things are now". I was told to just muddle through as best I could until I couldn't take it anymore, and then come back for surgery. Or that would I just have to learn to live with it.

What I found over time that it was often the things I learned in the wellness community - the things I could do at home - that made the biggest difference in my recovery.

I’m now on a mission to help other people get back to better health after an injury or health set back.

I show folks how to use simple techniques at home to improve their health over time, even in the midst of full schedules, families, and life in general. We owe it to ourselves to protect our health so we can enjoy the life we have.
