For the first year and some of my illness I bounced from specialist to specialist and didn’t get anywhere. When I finally knew what I had, I joined a support group. There I found the endless info I had been looking for.
People with chronic illnesses (Spoonies or specifically Lymies for Lyme Disease) are a untapped wealth of medical information. These people have dealt with it all and really know what works. Instead of calling my doctor and waiting for 24 to 48 hours for an answer, I now just go to the message boards to find out what others are doing.
Being on these message boards on Facebook another social media opened me up to a wealth of information that you can’t get anywhere else. They helped me with special diet foods, holistic treatment, support, and made me aware of things that we use daily that can be harmful. If you are ever in need of support, you don’t have to look any farther than your phone or computer, people are out there offering to help.

A friend shared this link with me today and I thought, “This is exactly what I’m talking about”. this-popular-moisturizer-applied-to-mice-for-17-weeks-got-69-more-tumors-1/
Essentially what you need to know … “Irradiated mice who were treated with the moisturizers exhibited a significant increase in their rate of tumor formation and increase in tumor size per mouse. Treatment of the mice with Dermabase, Dermovan, Eucerin, or Vanicream for 17 weeks increased the total number of histologically characterized tumors by 69 percent”.
With a world where cancer is prevalent and millions of other diseases, we need to really be aware of what we are using. This article outlines a few very common ingredients that are known toxins. Remembering the whole list of toxins to me is over-whelming. This is just another reason why I use Beauty Counter for everything. They have already done all this research and more to keep their products toxin free. The Never List was published by Beauty Counter as their promise of what they will not put in your products.
Also, coconut oil is the basis for most Beauty Counter products. Not only is coconut oil non-
toxin but it has anti-fungal qualities, making it not only non-toxic but genuinely beneficial. Whichever product you use, make sure you are protected.

Hi all, this will be my first post here but you can see the previous blog posts at myillnessstartofinish.blogspot.com
A bit of background, I am 27. I’ve been ill with Lyme Disease for a year and a half and I’m all about Awareness and living a healthy life.
So before you roll your eyes, I am hyper aware of everything I put in my mouth. Having an illness is no joke and you will do anything to make it end. After 6 months of absorbing magnesium through Epson salt baths and magnesium oil, somehow I failed to think about what I’m absorbing from my lotion, shampoo, conditioner, and make up.
Once again, at first I kind of rolled my eyes still but then I started to think about it. Did you know that Vitamin A when exposed to sun can make cancerous cells grow? Damn, isn’t vitamin A supposed to be good for you? I would have considered vitamin A in a skin care product positive.
This was just one of the list of things I learned when learning about Beauty Counter. This product line tests all ingredients individually and how they interact together in a product. They are constantly testing their potential products to make sure they are the cleanest and healthiest for us.
Not only did I place my first order, I decided I had to sell this. Second, obviously for the discount sellers get. First, because my mother had a skin cancer scare on her face that had to be surgically removed two years ago and if I can stop that from happening again, I plan to.
I encourage everyone to check out BeautyCounter.com/laurenlovejoy/ and see what their products are all about. I have officially become a loyal customer and am never going back.
