Dr. LaJoyce Brookshire is an ordained minister, with a doctorate in Naturopathy. She also is a Master Herbalist and a Certified Group Fitness Instructor.
As an author, LaJoyce is the first African American to novelize a major motion picture, Soul Food, a national bestseller, which outsold every movie tie-in book written before its release. With Faith Under Fire: Betrayed by a Thing Called Love, broke a ten-year silence as she shared the true-life account of marrying a man with full-blown AIDS and how her faith delivered her.
LaJoyce began her career as a publicist, working with Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, Sean “Puffy” Combs, Whitney Houston and Kenny G. But today she devotes her life to her family (husband, Gus and daughter Brooke), and delivering people from sickness and poor health.
With her Ask the Good Doctor series, LaJoyce gives a blueprint for healthy living, which she got from years of studying medicine and the bible. She focuses on health from all angles—the body, the mind, and the spirit.
