Live the fab life

056 A healthy kind of selfish | Dr Linda Joy Rose

If you don’t learn a healthy kind of selfishness you usually wind up with an unhealthy selfishness
— Dr Linda Joy Rose

Healthy living expert, therapist and author Dr Linda Joy Rose paints the picture of a driven and successful woman who initially didn’t recognise the signals her body was giving her.  Constant travelling took its toll on LJ and this resulted in an autoimmune disorder.  Recovery came in the form of nutrition and directing her passion. LJ has since been teaching, speaking and writing on the subject of natural wellness.
