About dr. linné linder

LIFESTYLE ENTHUSIAST, HEALTH & WELLNESS EXPERT, AGING-WELL ADVOCATE

"Providing real-world techniques that you can apply for immediate empowerment and success in supercharging your health and well-being…"

Linné Linder is a board-certified physician, author of The Forever Fat Burner, founder of JourneyTowardJoy.com and a huge lifestyle enthusiast. She helps those on a journey toward supercharging your health, satisfying your soul and simplifying your lifestyle so that you may live and love your best life.

There were pivotal times in Linné’s life that she was unhappy with her body, struggling with depression--and at one point--stressed to the point that she was hospitalized when she thought she was having a stroke. These events shaped her desire to not only figure out how to lose the weight and become the healthiest she has ever been; but, to pursue a life of peace and purpose by simplifying her environment and daily routines.  Through her success, she began helping others to do the same and now she teaches and trains others to live more healthfully and intentionally.  

After attending a postgraduate four-year medical school, she directed medical programs at the college level and quickly moved up the ranks to Director of Education/Dean, making education and motivational training, her passion. In her position, she received training and certification in high-performance methods rooted in cognitive psychology.  She continues to utilize these same techniques in assisting patients with their overall health and wellness goals; helping them work through barriers toward achieving ultimate wellness so that they may build healthy relationships with themselves whilst achieving their health goals. 

Dr. Linder pursued a career in medicine at SANTÉ Aesthetics & Wellness in Portland, Oregon where she serves her community with her expertise in lifestyle, health and aging-well practices. 

There was a time when she was 45 pounds heavier. She had to struggle over 20 years to curate the best research to help formulate the best fat burning plan -- both to improve her own health and the health of her patients. In addition, she had two pivotal life-altering events take place. 

The first incident was when she was struggling with a major depressive episode. She had lost a job, had failed a board exam in an effort to pursue her dreams, she had just been broken up with the man she had hoped she would someday marry. The culmination of events left her feeling paralyzed to the point she did not leave her bedroom for three weeks. The second life-changing event took place in a car ride home when she believed she was having a stroke as she was left unable to speak or to move her body and was rushed to the local ER, only to discover that her body was displaying symptoms of a severe panic attack as a result of her stressful lifestyle.   

The combination of these events (losing 45 pounds, getting through major depression and hospitalization) led her to create the blog and website: jouneytowardjoy.com. This website is dedicated to helping others to improve their health, recognize how to truly satisfy the soul and to simplify one’s lifestyle in an effort to live a life that generates joy, purpose, peace and productivity. Dr. Linder is the author of The Forever Fat Burner: The Secret to Optimizing Your Health, Longevity and Body Composition.

Since the publication of her book, she has helped hundreds of people to achieve optimum health -- both in the clinical setting and in the maintenance phase of weight loss. Her book has inspired people to improve their health and wellness using her step-by-step methods. With her education background and certification in cognitive psychology techniques, she continues to create blogs and videos that inspire others to achieve optimum health and a more meaningful life. 

Here is what some folks are saying:

"Doctor Linné helped me achieve the most incredible gift of getting my health back on track after several failed pregnancies and then finally the joyous birth of my daughter.  Needless to say from my hormones to weight gain my body was in major need of a dramatic intervention. Under her care, I have lost over 70 pounds and am the most healthy I have ever been. I have easily maintained my health with all the education and knowledge Doctor Linné empowered me with. She made switching to a strictly clean lifestyle and everything that comes with that a breeze. I thought this would be an overwhelming journey but to describe my experience in one word would be….simple. She gave me all the tools and skills that I can use for the rest of my life and help share with the ones I love.” -- Pamela Z."

"To say that I am grateful for your help and guidance through my weight loss journey is not enough.  When I embarked on this journey, I had no concept of how far it would take me and how many changes I would experience.  As of today, I am holding right around 40 pounds of weight loss.  I didn’t know I wasn’t feeling great, but I feel so much better; emotionally, spiritually and certainly physically. Better sleep/rest, fewer muscle/tendon/ligament issues, smaller appetite and a nice reduction/change in cravings.  I have also noticed that my self-esteem and inner confidence levels were more suppressed than I had realized.  Put it all together and I am really feeling amazing! To all of this, I thank you." -- Danielle E.

"Regarding her book, The Forever Fat Burner: I have to say, this naturopath helped me lose 20 pounds while my body was under constant stress. It seemed hard at first, counting. Then I realized it’s what I had never taken the time to do before. It was the missing puzzle piece: finding my carb tolerance. Now I don’t have to count at all. I have it down."  -- The Healing Cave Lady

Dr. Linder has multiple appearances on KGW’s Portland Today and continues to appear for public speaking and motivational education appearances. 

Her philosophy recognizes that there is no cookie-cutter approach toward achieving optimum wellness but that an individualized approach is key. As a result she provides unique artistry in assisting others with their metabolic and life-management makeovers; helping them work through barriers toward achieving ultimate wellness—and as a result, build healthful relationships with themselves, whilst achieving their wellness goals.
