Ask the Good Doctor By: LaJoyce Brookshire
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit,
who is in you, whom you have received from God?
You are not your own; you were bought at a price.
Therefore, honor God with your body.
—1 Corinthians 6:19-20
In her critically acclaimed memoir Faith Under Fire, LaJoyce Brookshire chronicled her life with her former husband who married her knowing he was HIV-positive but never bothered to tell her. She lived with him for years, and nursed him to his dying day. And when she found out the truth, it was her faith that brought her through it all—including a clean bill of health.
It was during that difficult journey that LaJoyce’s interest in holistic healing was taken to another level. It was her herbal remedies that kept her former husband alive two years longer than doctors expected. And she believes it was her same commitment to this healthy lifestyle that kept her from contracting his disease.
LaJoyce went on to get her doctorate in Naturopathy and Naturopathic Ministry and this, Ask The Good Doctor (The Detox Edition), is the first of a series of books focusing on healing of the mind, the spirit and the body.
