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

    Hey Davida,

    Have you ever heard of Drew Canole on YouTube from FitLifeTV? Sounds like ya’ll 2 need to pair up and do a blog interview and podcast together about this healthy living thing. He’s an expert on juicing vegetables and using food as medicine for better living.

    This was such a great episode and my story is almost parallel to Joy’s. I wish I would have discovered her when I started my journey to heal my eczema almost a year ago. I’ve been battling my gut health for the past year (no dairy or gluten!) to get to the root cause of my autoimmune disease. I’ve recently been focusing on my skin-care products and environment pollutants, which can have the same impact as diet on skin conditions! I’m looking forward to exploring Joy’s blog some more and refer to it as I continue on my healing journey. Thanks for the episode! P.S. just left a review on iTunes.
