Creekside Herb House
Self-Wellness Through Sustainable Nutrition
At that time, Joyce knew there was not any new treatment for this condition as her biological father had just passed away with the condition. Joyce chose not to be treated. When she shared her findings with her friends, they took her to an Iridologist who had an herbal shop. The Iridologist read Joyce’s eyes and told her the same things the medical profession had told her. She also said I had ovarian cancer. However, this herbalist started Joyce on a regiment of supplements that made her feel better immediately. Joyce was sold on the power of herbal healing.
Joyce spent as much time as she was allowed at her newfound friend’s herbal shop. This herbalist taught Joyce how to learn natural healing, the basic laws and how to distinguish between what is “snake oil, so to speak,” and what is actually healthy. Joyce was also taught how to read eyes (Iridology). She studied the works and research of Dr. Bernard Jensen’s, Dr. John Christopher’s School of Natural Healing. This is a book course on herbs, their preparations of herbal solutions. Joyce also studied the work and research of Louise Tenney, M. H. (Master Herbalist). Tenney has written many books on herbs, their history, healing properties, and conditions they can be used for to heal the body.
Joyce and husband closed their trucking company and moved to upstate New York to help care for her husband’s parents. She continued her study of herbs and natural health. She opened a chat room on Paltalk and for nine years was able to help people all over the world with their health concerns. Joyce closed the Paltalk chat room after a costly upgrade for commercial room. During that time, her husband died, and Joyce began her journey to Austin to live with family.
Joyce joined Toastmasters to get out into the community and to develop her skills in presenting to build her business.
Joyce strongly believes the continued research and results of knowing how to live healthy is opening the doors to many about treating the body as a whole and not trying to segment a condition.
In 1979, the medical profession had told Joyce that she would be in a wheelchair by the time she was 50. The fact that she is still alive, not on any medications, plus willing to teach others the secrets to longevity, in a healthy productive manner, says a lot. At 74, she is still mobile, happy, healthy, and looking to the future.
