Episode #21: Joy McCarthy + How To Heal Your Eczema

May 31, 2017

Joy was one of the first bloggers I met in real life. I remember being so nervous to approach her at an event in Toronto and was taken aback by how kind and sweet she was to me. I’m not sure why I thought bloggers might not be as authentic as they seemed on their blogs, but Joy was definitely the one who changed my mind!

Getting to have her on the show to chat more about her journey and the incredible practice she’s built was truly a dream come true.

On episode #21 of That's So Maven, we're chatting with Joy McCarthy from Joyous Health about holistic living and how to heal your gut naturally to improve your health.

For those of you who may not know Joy, she 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.

On today’s episode we discuss:

  • Joy’s story and how she launched Joyous Health
  • How she started her blog in 2009 and if it’s changed over the last 8 years
  • Food, fitness and everything else – what matters most for our health?
  • What does detox mean to Joy?
  • How to get started with a healthy lifestyle
  • Beyond the kitchen – how to incorporate self-care and other negative habits to change
  • Eczema – why Joy is passionate about helping others heal it holistically?
  • The one health-habit she can’t live without

    I would like to say Foderma Serum is the best thing ever! I’ve had eczema problems for years and gets worse during wintertime. My skin on my hands is the worse, they get really dry, bumpy, cracking, cuts, itchy and so on. For years the Doctors would give those prescription cream or ointments and for years they never worked. Then last year I finally started using Foderma Eczema Serum religiously (before bed, after getting ready for work, after washing my hands and so on) and I’m so glad I did. It was like a miracle, nothing ever worked for me, my hands have never felt and looked better. For years all I needed was Foderma. Thank Foderma, you guys are awesome. No more steroid creams/ointments for me ever again.
