Today we’d like to introduce you to Joyce Gerber.
Joyce, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
When I was 20 years old, I made the “big move”, leaving my parents’ home in New York, to live on my own in Miami Beach. I used to hitch hike to get around (hippie times), and a guy named “Johnnie” (to this day, I do not know his last name) picked me up, and brought me to my first health food store/restaurant. He was absolutely passionate about health and nutrition, and I caught the fever!
When I returned to New York city a couple of years later, it became clear to me that I wanted to work in holistic health. A friend of mine mentioned that she was enrolling in massage school, and that sounded like a perfect first step for me. I knew that I totally disagreed with allopathic medicine (traditional healthcare), and I liked that this would offer me a year long course of study of anatomy and physiology, so people would trust that I really had a substantial body of knowledge, and that I legally had the right to touch them.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I had to earn the money for each modality I studied, and study while I worked, so it was a stretch. Also, learning a skill, no matter how important it is, or how good you are, is very different from earning a living from it. Learning how to “market” myself, and offer what I did, in a way that resonated people, that showed people the value of my work and it’s benefits, was a whole other subject, and required a different skill set.
Please tell us about Health Is An Inside Job.
My expertise is in the health of “the gut”, known as “the second brain”. If the gut is compromised, then the whole body is compromised. All disease begins in the colon. A healthy microbiome creates a happy person! I’m certified as a nutritional consultant, and as a colon hydrotherapist. I use colon hydrotherapy, and cutting-edge nutritional protocols, to remove GMOs, chemicals, and heavy metals from the body and intestinal tract (the gut), to heal and repair the intestinal lining, to restore the villi in the small intestine (which are so important in absorbing nutrients), to remove old wastes and toxins, and to rebalance the microflora. The two most important aspects to address, in order to restore health, and reverse disease, are to eliminate both toxicity, and nutritional deficiency. When that occurs, weight is lost, energy is gained, and pain and disease disappear!
people avoid the chemicals and fillers that might temporarily make one “look good”, but that have toxic side effects. This technology is also extremely effective for pain, injury, burns, and wounds, providing non-toxic, non-addictive alternatives to pain medication, and other medical options.
Who Also Deserves Credit?
Again, as I mentioned before, the great healers in my life, whom I studied with, had a huge impact on me: Dr. Bernard Jensen, Ann Wigmore, Annemarie Colbin, Susun Weed, and most recently, David Sandoval.
