“Somebody’s told us for so long how and why we are this way, that we forget that we have agency,” shares Lynn Joselyn, PA-C. Lynn spent 20 years working in conventional medicine before experiencing her own series of catalytic moments that led her to opening her own functional and holistic medicine focused food and spirit clinic. Now, Lynn leads group visits to help people find healing through the power of connection to others.

Lynn realized that while she still wanted to be working in healthcare, she was completely burned-out from conventional medicine. Today, she shares the power of human connection with her functional medicine clients by teaching them to trust their innate powers of healing and intuition. 

Even though Lynn is an introvert herself, she explains that being around supportive people can be energizing. Her true passion is empowering others to find strength through their community.

Tune into this week’s episode of The Catalyst to learn more about the power of community, the three catalytic experiences that led Lynn to change her career, and how catalytic functional practitioners differ from regular functional practitioners.

About Lynn Joselyn PA-C, IFMCP, CFSP™:

As a Physician Assistant, Functional Medicine practitioner and a Food and Spirit™ practitioner I am passionate about whole person health. After over 20 years working in conventional medicine primary care settings, I knew there was more I could do for people living with chronic illness. Through my own personal health crisis and healing I not only “knew” there was more but am living proof that integrative approaches to chronic illnesses work.

My passion for improved care and outcomes motivated me to seek further study in integrative and functional medicine. I am a lifelong learner, and continue to seek truth in healing and ways to live a more joyful life. My path has taught me many lessons along the way. I am at a new juncture in life, a time to share my gifts with others and offer a space for healing and a path to a joyful, vibrant and connected life; a birthright for all. I am passionate about the healing power of community and offer creative space for group connection. Integrated Spectrum of Health is the blossoming seed planted many years ago. I welcome you to grow with me, choose into your life and create the full spectrum health that is your birthright.

In This Episode We're Talking About:

  • How humans are wired for connection, community is a key component in healing and living a full spectrum life
  • Adding the elements of joy, color and connection to a medical practice is possible and inviting for both patient and provider! 
  • We all get to thrive, find community, create community even for you “introverts” it is possible!


  • “I got to the place where I literally could not adjust, and I wasn’t showing up in my best self.” (4:30-4:36)


  • “Take a look at what your default modes are. What are those neural pathways, those patterns that are just comfortable and easy, but maybe not serving you? Because I still can fall into those.” (10:34-10:49)


  • “All I have to do is have a connection with one other human that energetically is supportive, and then I am able to move out of anything.” (10:50-11:13)


  • “The brilliance of group visits is we’re not in isolation. It’s an opportunity to not get so attached to your disease or label.” (19:27-19:41)


  • “People just want to be seen and heard.” (34:36-34:38)

About The Catalyst Host, Dr. Lara Salyer:

I worked as a family physician for 15 years until burnout changed the trajectory of my career. I realized I wanted to start a holistic functional medicine practice in my rural hometown and made it happen. In addition to practicing functional medicine, I now mentor practitioners who are looking to change their paths in healthcare by using what I refer to as the “Catalyst Roadmap”. I share each step of this framework with listeners so that they may apply it to their careers, relationships, personal goals, and projects.
