It was during a long and debilitating spell of ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) that I began to question my health and diet. ME is also known as Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFRS). My wake -up moment came when I got up and was too tired to even get dressed. It was then that I realised that if nothing changed, this was it – my life would always suck. It would literally suck the life out of me. Instead of crying and feeling sorry for myself I made my mind up to find a solution. That was when the challenges began.
Though now accepted as a condition by the medical community the causes and treatment are matters of debate. With little offered in the way of guidance from conventional medicine I was forced to learn the way for myself. I explored a path of self-treatment using diet, juices and wheatgrass.
My recovery showed me there was another way to wellness. It’s ironic that the acronym for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis is ME – and it led me to discover a different ‘ME’. In questioning my diet and lifestyle it also led me to question who I was. Not just ‘What was best for me?’ , but who was the ‘real me’, the ‘best me’.
It’s in honour of this questioning that I came up with the new name of the company – Susie Who? It summed up the raw, vulnerable self I remember from my illness, but also the driving belief that there was a better me in the future. I never stop questioning who I am, and what’s good for me.
It’s a lifelong quest for wellness and a better, healthier me. I’m still learning, and I will never stop. Everything we do to ourselves makes a difference for better or for worse. What we eat, drink, put on our skin – makes an impact on us as well as the environment. I believe in always trying to make the right choices – and helping others find their right choices too."
I want to encourage everyone to question themselves..
Who is the healthier you?
Who is the more beautiful you?
Who is the more environmentally aware you?
Who is the real you?
Who is the happier you?
Who is the next you?
When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself,
art cannot manifest, strength is not found,
wealth becomes useless, and reason becomes
