Company Name: The Wellness Warrior
How you got started: I started TheWellnessWarrior.com.au as a blog to chronicle my experiences while healing from cancer naturally. That was about 2.5 years ago, and since then it has grown in popularity to now become a hub for all things health and wellness. It is a virtual sanctuary where I share my story, lessons, and healing info every day.
What brings you joy?
My little pug girl, my boyfriend, my family, reading brilliant books, being near the ocean, nature, raw cheesecake, preparing and eating amazing healthy food, connecting with my virtual family via my website, and so much more!
What is your style of Music?
I have a very eclectic taste in music – from laid back folksy stuff, hip- hop, dance, and especially old school stuff.
Do you have a book you could recommend to us?
I just finished reading Wild by Cheryl Strayed and it was brilliant! I’m also reading Pattie Boyd’s autobiography, Wonderful Tonight, and it’s great too. I love bios from that rock era.
The Sunshine Coast. I don’t think there is anywhere better than here!
Share with us a memory that makes you smile?
In 2009 I trekked the Himalayas with two of my friends. It was amazing. We saw the most magical sights and met incredible people. But it was the physically hardest thing I’ve ever done, and completing the trek was the first time I realised how much inner strength I have. This was also right before I was diagnosed with cancer for the second time, so it is one of my last wild and free experiences. A little while after that I started Gerson Therapy and threw myself into my healing regime.
Share a favourite saying with us…
Our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but by how we react to what happens to us, not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life.
What’s being healthy mean to you?
To me, being healthy means making all lifestyle decisions from a place of pure kindness and respect for yourself.
