Meet Joyce

I started out my career in health care 35 years ago as a Radiologic Technologist. Shortly after graduating from school I started to learn diagnostic ultrasound, which at that time was in its infancy. Most of my career in diagnostic ultrasound has been dedicated to woman’s health, working closely with OB/Gyn physicians and Reproductive Endocrinologists.

I have lived in the Chicagoland area all my life, an area which I really love. Presently, I live in Elgin with my dog and 3 cats. My favorite pastime is taking my little dog, Zippy, to the forest preserve to run and play with her doggy friends.

On a more personal note

My goal for this website is to be an active informational site for women who suffer from all different types of health issues. Understanding the wide choices we have to keep healthy is at times confusing. Knowledge is power and we wish to help you become comfortable with the use of this ancient medicine to live a better life.

I personally have suffered from many gynecologic problems that prevented me from having children. I didn’t know it at that time nor did my doctors but I suffered from polycystic ovarian syndrome. I also had terrible fibroids and had surgery to remove them when I was only 29 years old. Unfortunately, they returned and I had to have a hysterectomy ten years later.

I have had many of the same symptoms that woman complain about to their doctors, such as pelvic pain, heavy periods, mood swings, and hot flashes. I have also seen the blank look that the doctor would give when you tell them about pain. It didn’t matter if the doctor was a man or a woman, if they never experienced it they couldn’t comprehend my suffering.

It wasn’t until I discovered Chinese Medicine that I was able to understand what was happening in my body. Chinese medicine treats the person as a whole and not just the separate parts. So even though I was having gynecologic problems, the root of it was coming from somewhere else. Once the root was treated my symptoms disappeared.

What I want to share with you is the way Chinese Medicine can help with your problems in a natural way without the side effects that some western medicines can create.

I will also help you decode what your doctor is telling you in a way that you will understand. Thereby taking control of your body and living a more balanced life.
