A Brush with a Health Scare Made Me Start Treating My Body Much Better

I had a cancer scare last year, and it really made me reevaluate my life and everything in it. Along with changes in the way that I lived life, I also knew that I needed to treat my body better. I began eating much healthier, and I also started buying healthier products that I use on my body, too. I bought natural makeup, natural deodorants and even natural lotions and creams. For most of my life, I had simply bought all the things that I had purchased for years without really thinking about it, but when I feared that I had cancer, I decided to change everything for the better.

During my 20s, I ate a ton of junk food and partied a lot. I’m in my 50s now, and I dumped the partying long ago, but up until my cancer scare, I still ate really bad foods. It was not uncommon for me to wake up and eat a half a bag of chips or cookies for breakfast, but that changed when I realized that I needed to start eat better or else! I hired a nutritionist, who helped me learn how to eat much better, and she taught me how to make healthy recipes that are really tasty to eat.

The nutritionist I worked with also taught me that it’s not enough to just change your food habits. She quizzed me about what other products I used on a regular basis, and she helped me to figure out which things I should get rid of and replace with natural products. I was lucky to find out that I didn’t have cancer after having two biopsies, but that didn’t cause me to get lazy and go back to my old habits. I switched out all my creams, lotions and makeup quickly that are made only with natural ingredients. I’ve found that they work just as well, if not better, than all the products that I used to buy.
