I wasn't always interested in taking care of my body, but after quitting smoking, becoming a vegetarian, and adopting an overall healthy lifestyle following years of health complications, it's become my number one priority. Although I'm only 20 years old, I already worry about my health in the long run, something that we could all benefit from doing. I want to help people not make the mistakes I've made that have harmed my health (smoking, a horrible diet, etc.) or inspire people to take the path I've taken. If you wait until your health is an issue, chances are the damage you've done can't be undone. But if you take a proactive approach, your quality of life will be improved more than you know!
I've seen the effects that untreated endometriosis can have with the recent cancer diagnosis my aunt received. After a hysterectomy and chemotherapy treatments, she has recovered and is cancer-free for the first time this year. I know about the dangers of uninformed young women making risky sexual decisions. I've experienced the effects of withholding health information and parents who did not maintain open lines of communication. And what I want to do is help all of you live better, healthier lives with the best information I can give you — from my own experiences, from the experiences of those around me and from the latest research done in the medical field.
I am woman, hear me roar :*)
