— Dr. Joyce Choe

Dr. Joyce Choe is a plant based ophthalmologist and health educator who struggled with severe food sensitivities and leaky gut, despite eating a whole foods plant based diet for many years. She experimented with various versions of an elimination diet, prior to experiencing significant healing at the Years Restored Lifestyle Center, founded by Mercy Ballard. 

— Mercy Ballard, RN

Mercy Ballard, RN, the founder of the Years Restored lifestyle center, began the center after she recovered from autoimmune disease. She began cooking in her late forties, after realizing the importance of making healthy food that others would enjoy. She recently retired from her job as an intravenous nurse to pursue her passion of providing practical education in nutrition and lifestyle. She is the coauthor of the Autoimmune Plant Based Cookbook and the online Autoimmune Recovery Plan. She resides with her family in central California.

The SURVIVE and THRIVE Series 

As she and Mercy both saw a need for plant based educational resources for those with autoimmune disease and leaky gut, they recently coauthored the Autoimmune Plant Based Cookbook and designed the online course The Autoimmune Recovery Plan, based upon the protocol used at the Years Restored Lifestyle Center. 

Information for the lifestyle center can be found at Yearsrestored.com. The online course is available at https://www.drjoycechoe.com/autoimmune-recovery-plan. Their book is available at Wholenessmarket.com.
