Our Story

Dr. Josse was always fascinated by the healing relationships between humans and nature. As a child in New Zealand she treasured her copy of “The Secret Life of Plants.”

After an early vocation as an artist and videographer, Josse segued into healing through an experience helping a friend who was dealing with a serious chronic illness. Working just with her personal passion for holistic nutrition she was able to help her friend achieve a full recovery and experience an amazing level of wellbeing.

This experience inspired Josse to embrace healing as a calling, initially studying holistic nutrition at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York. A desire to be closer to the Pacific Ocean of her childhood led her to California where she studied to become a Doctor of Chinese Medicine and an IFM-Certified Functional Medicine practitioner. She opened her practice Alchemy Radiant Health in 2007.

The Alchemy team loves working with patients who are committed to being the best they can be creatively, mentally, emotionally, and physically, and who are willing to make the consistent effort to get there!
