Dr. Edwards journey to natural health and wellness was a truly personal experience. diagnosed with type 2 diabetes after the birth of her 5th child she suffered the depression and sadness that comes with any diagnosis of that sort.She began to gain weight and was then diagnosed with fibroids. Overweight and diabetic suffering from fibroids and extended menstrual cycles she did what anyone educated in western medicine would do, took her medication and just lived through it. It wasn't until she began her training in plastic surgery that her life changed.This particular office was different it was a holistic cosmetics practice it had all aspects of alternative medicine combined with a surgical component.This began her journey to wellness. She began a regimen of herbs and diet changes that a yr later left her fibroid free but still overweight. Now Dr. Joy wanted to learn more about alternative medicine. As she searched for knowledge she went back to school for massage therapy,homeopathy and finally a Doctor of Natural Medicine (naturopathy).
