Joy Lasseter did not have good health as a child. Her parents and
doctor were unaware of her numerous food allergies. Believing she had
the flu, her doctor gave her a penicillin shot for each episode of
symptoms. Which, as we now know, radically upsets the gut balance.
Gradually her symptoms increased through the years.
After leaving home she explored every health option she could find
through practitioners, lectures, workshops, books and personal
experimenting. As she worked at several different jobs she continued
to study nutrition, looking for answers for her own recovery. After
her mid-career burnout, Joy sought the help of a holistic nutritionist
who helped her recover.
Then she felt 20 years younger, full of energy and made the decision
to go back to school where she earned Masters and Doctorate Degrees in
Holistic Nutrition. Dr. Joy has been in practice for 26 years. She
guides her clients through the process of learning healthier ways to
care for their body with her custom-designed programs and follow-up
support. She writes a column in The Messenger, gives talks, company
presentations, and encourages people everywhere to nurture their
health for a longer, healthier life.
