Today we are chatting with Joy McCarthy from Joyous Health — and one of the first bloggers I ever met IRL, and she didn’t disappoint. She is just as sweet and authentic as she comes off on her blog!
Joy is a holistic nutritionist from my hometown of Toronto, Canada and has built an incredibly successful business and all-around wellness brand over the last 8 years. With a thriving practice, blog, and two books under her belt, Joy is a household name.
I wanted to have her on the show to share more about her personal health journey and how she built Joyous Health, but also about her current passion, helping women struggling with skin conditions, and particularly eczema, heal their guts naturally and thrive without medication. She truly embraces holistic living, both in the kitchen and out.
