One day, I was eating pizza for lunch, and I felt just awful. I was in my early 20’s. I was nauseous and noticed my skin had broken out with acne. It was hard for me to look at myself and not get upset. I felt depressed and anxious at the same time, wanting to scream. I began to wonder if there may be a link between what I was eating and the skin problems.
I had known people with very healthy eating habits, who ate lots of organic veggies and fruit, and thought about how healthy and vibrant they looked. I began to wonder if some of my habits were being reflected through my skin. I realized that there may be a connection there, and I immediately felt some relief from my ongoing frustration.
I asked myself, could it be that what I was putting in my body was wreaking havoc? This really was an epiphany for me because I had never before made that connection. It was as if a huge door opened up with bright, gold lights shining out from it and endless possibilities waiting on the other side. I opened that door up right then and decided to look for someone who had information on nutrition and health. This was the beginning of my epic journey towards health and clear skin! It felt empowering to take charge of my own health.
