This photo was taken on June 7th, 2016. A month before I started my cleanse. Before I started my journey of cutting out sugar, gluten, and dairy. I maybe smiling here, but my gut was in constant pain every single day. Lemme say something here... Eating so clean has cleared up my skin completely. I suffered from acne for years and tried everything under the sun so you could say I was shocked by this. Cutting out sugar has helped tremendously and I honestly don't crave it one bit. I didn't even realize that sugar is literally in EVERYTHING! I also have been really getting into essential oils and blown away by how many different ways you can use them. I'm in the market for a natural deodorant and toothpaste so if you can recommend some good ones... Please help a sista out! This journey hasn't been a very easy one if I'm being honest. I'm still dealing with my health issues. But I have an amazing support system, my faith, and Thunder basketball to distract me.
