How many people today are just hanging on, living in a state of exhaustion, plagued with diagnosed and undiagnosed health conditions? It is a disgrace that we have all but ignored one of the greatest tools we can take advantage of diet. Nutrition is not only preventative, it can also reverse disease processes. It is unfortunate that this compelling science, Nutrition, is not used more often in the arsenal of weapons to help combat illness. Given a chance, the body possesses powerful abilities to heal itself. Today, the staggering health statistics we face as a nation is unimaginable. Almost nine million children, or one in five, take psychoactive drugs for behavior disorders. One in five adults are mentally ill. One in three people die from cancer. One in five pregnancies end in miscarriage and a quarter of a million children are born with birth defects each year. There are other options.


Delight in the idea - the pleasure in seeing yourself heal.


Faced with her own health predicament, after the birth of her first child nineteen years ago, Joy was exhausted and arthritic. For a period of time her doctors could not identify the cause of her debilitating symptoms. Eventually, she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. She lived with perpetual fatigue, constantly feeling ill. Unable to function and care for her infant, she began her own search to improve her health; in essence, Joy was in Pursuit of Good Health. It was out of this journey to wellness that she not only healed, but also became far healthier than before. It was nutritional balancing science that allowed Joy to regain her health and well-being. Aware that there are countless people who are suffering as she did, she decided to write this book as a means to share the simple, yet highly effective program that restored her energy and good health in a matter of months.




Given the staggering health statistics we face as a nation today, more and more people are diagnosed with a multitude of illnesses, treated with mind boggling amounts of pharmaceutical medications or are just feeling plain sick.


For example:


    Obstetricians and gynecologists write 2,645,000 antibiotic prescriptions   
      every week. Internist's prescribe 1,416,000 per week. This works out to
      211,172,00 prescriptions annually, just for two specialties. Pediatricians
      prescribe over $500 million worth of antibiotics just for one condition, ear


    Today, almost 9 million children, or almost one out of every five children,
      take psychoactive drugs for their behavior disorders.


    In the United States, one in three people die from cancer. One in three 
      suffer from allergies, one in ten has ulcers and one in five is mentally ill.
      One in five pregnancies end in miscarriage and a quarter of a million
      infants are born with birth defects each year.

    "Joy's cookbook really helped me get started. It shows you how to sneak in those vegetables for those less cooperative members of your family. They won't even know what you have done! Once I understood the basics, I was able to get creative and even come up with some of my own concoctions! It really is an immeasurable tool in your quest for better health."

    "Joyful Cooking in the Pursuit of Good Health, is just that. Reading the information and learning how the foods we eat tend to interact with our internal and external environment has brought me to the next level of knowledge about the food we eat. The information leaves me questioning where do I want to go from here? At age 64, all the pains of aging are making themselves known to me. Staying on a nutritional diet with the supplements you have recommended, have helped ease some of the pains in my joints, my back and in my all around health. In fact, my blood pressure has dropped significantly.


    The recipes in your book, sound different and exciting, truthfully, my mouth started to water as I read them. Recognizing that I can live without white sugar and wheat products in my diet, has definitely become noticeable to my doctors and in my blood tests. Your book is more than a cookbook, it is packed with so much information and is an expression of the dedication you have for your clients. This is a must read for all those people who want to take their health to a higher level. Thank you for your patience and knowledge."
