Joy Ziefer


Joy Ziefer’s life changed forever during the Summer of 1996 when her 15 year old daughter, Amber, was diagnosed with Crohns Disease and underwent her second bowel surgery. Determined to find a drug free remedy for Crohns Disease, Joy discovered the Macrobiotic Lifestyle designed by founder Michio Kushi. Immediately, Joy and Amber enrolled in “The Way to Health” course at the Macrobiotic Institute in Massachusetts. At the end of the 7 day program, Amber no longer needed her medications which has continued for the past 22 years.  In 1998, Joy completed the Macrobiotic Teacher Training Course and has continued to teach others about how Macrobiotics can cure certain conditions and put even cancers in remission. She has helped hundreds of friends and family lead a healthy and happy life. 

  With a focus on healthy lifestyle living combined with her teaching degree from Penn State University, Completion of Kripalu Yoga Teacher Training, Dr. Belisa Vranich’s Breathing Master Class and the outstanding Breath – Body – Mind Workshop by Dr. Richard Brown and Dr. Patricia Gerbarg, Joy’s mission is to teach and educate the public about “The Healing Power of Your Breath” by Dr. Richard Brown and Dr. Patricia Gerbarg and its amazing results from a 20 minute daily Breathing practice.  Individual or Group classes are available. Inquire about the Breath – Body- Mind Workshop being offered at Williams Island Spa, Aventura, Florida in the Fall 2018.
