The Joy Factor

10 Sacred Practices for Radiant Health (Holistic Health through Alternative Medicine, Fitness, and Diet for the Everyday Person)

By Susan Smith Jones

Holistic Health for the Mind and Body

“This combination book/workbook is sure to be a welcome companion to anyone seeking to bring vitality and radiant health into their lives.”—Neal Barnard, founder and president, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine

The Joy Factor explores the mind-body connection of holistic health in a way that anyone can understand. With simple, easy-to-implement practices, you’ll be looking—and feeling—healthier in no time. 

Mind your mind to mind your body. Have you ever been physically fine but felt bad all the same? A pioneer of the mind-body-spirit approach to wellness, author Susan Smith Jones knows that health starts with your heart—and not your physical one. A positive mindset and a spirit of gratitude sets the groundwork for a more holistic healing of both the body and the mind. Illuminated through sacred practices like breathwork, visualizations, community work, and more, discover a sense of wonder and a youthful zest for life—no matter your age. 

Embrace holistic health in everyday life choices. Discover the benefits of eating a plant-based, whole food diet and how easily exercise becomes a part of your daily routine when you find activities you love to do. After all, it’s the simple things we do for ourselves and our community every day that make us glow with good health—it’s not "all about me"; it’s about how “me” meets the world.

Inside The Joy Factor, discover:

  • Recipes, tips, and tricks for healing with food through plant-based and whole foods
  • An herbal medicine guide with recipes and explanations of natural remedies
  • How to keep a healthy, vibrant, and youthful mindset through meditations, prayer practice, and more

If you like holistic health books like Radical Longevity, The Mindbody Prescription, or Eat to Beat Disease, you’ll love The Joy Factor.
