Judy’s Story written by journalist Jo Hegarty

The positive approach and knowledge healed Judy

Judy MillsWhile the diagnosis of a tumor is devastating for anyone, having it return after you’ve beaten it once is another thing all together. For Judy Mills, in her mid sixties this moment in February 1999 was the start of a life-changing journey.

“As I heard the specialist say the words, ‘You have the start of cancer in your body’, my mind raced. I tried to stand up to leave the room but my legs wouldn’t move,” says Judy.

“I knew then and there I had to truly heal my mind, body and soul in order to beat this thing once and for all.”

Twelve years prior to that moment, Judy was living a life pretty typical of an Australian woman in her late thirties. She was a wife and mother to two beautiful girls, working too much in her own business, managing staff, hitting the gym, constantly juggling her commitments.

“I was really being a ‘normal’ person but, looking back, I can see I was living a pretty fast life, trying to be superwoman and not getting much balance. Although I knew in principle how to tap into a more balanced state, it wasn’t a big priority. I didn’t have an in-depth understanding of the ramifications of stress at that point.”

When Judy began struggling for breath during her regular workouts, she dismissed it as exhaustion. She kept up the fast-paced existence, assuming things would get better, that her circumstance would change and she would simply step into a better life. But it soon reached the point where Judy understood that something was terribly wrong. An investigation revealed a tumor in her lung and ribs.

As someone with a scientific, practical and analytical mind, Judy trusted the medical profession to solve the problem; and it did. An extensive operation that removed two ribs and a “good bit of lung” was successful in ridding Judy from this large tumor.

“I always had a positive attitude,” says Judy. “I worked on that side of my body with my mind and didn’t let the fear get a hold of me.” Fast forward to 1999 and Judy found herself again facing her fears. The foe she thought she had despatched with was back. How could this have happened?

From cancer with love

“I decided that this time, I was going to take control of my health. I began researching the causes and solutions of cancer, so I could defeat it once and for all. The first step was letting go of unwanted emotional thoughts and conditioning. I knew I had to go deep into my soul, into the emotional side of my body. Our minds create so much dis-ease in our bodies.

“I went on a strict regime of cleansing, including dealing with childhood issues, and developed an understanding about what happens to our bodies at a cellular level. I felt so light and truly believed I could beat cancer again; I could feel every cell healing.”

Judy’s healing path led her to one of Australia’s top biochemists -later going onto work with this wonderful team. She was on such a journey discovering the extent of the damage caused by toxic ingredients in our environments and everyday products.

“It was unnerving, to say the least,” Judy says. “And what was worse; it seemed no one knew about it!”

Understanding and overcoming cancer

“Having armed myself with knowledge, I went on to speak openly in small and large forums about the amount of toxins (many of them acknowledged as potential carcinogens) allowed to be contained in the products we use on our bodies daily.”

“Manufacturers use these nasty chemicals in skin care products because they are cheap. These may give the appearance of good results at first but the long-term use of man-made chemicals like sulphates and parabens not only destroys our complexion, but potentially sets us up for much more serious long-term effects.

“Our bodies can’t deal with these chemicals so it stores them (most commonly in fat cells) often leading to weight gain and other long term health issues.”

This began her quest to discover toxin-free beauty products which Judy to develop her own range of skin care products and nutraceuticals, called CELL Infuse.

Judy’s mantra is that your chronological age has nothing to do with the actual “age” of your body. “That’s what really matters to me. We can be 80 years old but if we have a biological age of 45 inside, we’re going to be fitter and healthier, and free from disease. Of course, the same is true in the reverse.”

CELL Infuse skin care and CELL Infuse Super Greens powder supplement are designed to nourish and feed every cell in your body and are the result of painstaking research and testing in conjunction with Australia’s leading biochemists.

“I believe you can keep your skin looking youthful without chemicals like Botox, expensive surgical procedures or fillers,” says Judy. “Nature always has and still provides the answers.”CELL Infuse Super Greens tastings

As for Judy, it’s coming up to 20 years since her world was flipped around. “I’m enjoying this continued healing journey, I’m thriving and still run three or four times a week and exercise on alternate days. Today I am biologically years younger than my age and I like who I have become, with a passion and love to see others embrace change and ultimately shine from the inside out.

“I feel my journey has been like climbing Mount Everest and I give thanks for every step I’ve taken,” says Judy.

Is there a Nasty Smell in your Bathroom Cabinet (Synthetic Fragrances)?

Would you wash your face in paint thinner? No of course not! The sad thing is you could be doing this without realizing it!

What’s in your bathroom cabinet? Is there paint thinner in your makeup remover?

synthetic vs natural sprayWashing your face and getting that last layer of makeup off is something we all do every day… but there may be a hidden cost to this nightly ritual. Truth is, many of these beauty products you use to remove makeup and dirt are full of alcohol and chemicals that actually act like paint thinner.

These chemicals hide behind scientific names like “ethoxylated alcohol” and “butylated hydroxytoluene.” But what they do is cause redness, burning and dry spots – the same effect you get with corrosive solvents like paint thinner.

What’s worse is that when you use them every day, they accelerate the effects of ageing.

Do your products have a strong aroma?

natural scentsAgain chances are it could be a chemical. When I was facing my health challenges with cancer cells my research showed me that the perfume I used had chemical compounds. Oh dear! I thought even my perfume has to go (aahhh!) so I immediately replaced it with aromatherapy pure oils, and made sure they were pure essential oils.

To maintain healthy skin always choose products that don’t include alcohol or harsh chemicals. Instead always make sure natural ingredients are in the skin care products you’ll be putting on your face or spraying on yourself.

We need to check the labels & check the deodorizers in your home and bathrooms – are they synthetic?
We always get to choose, so I encourage you to empower yourself with knowledge.

Scent is still a powerful force of attraction.

aromatherapy candlesIt can lift your mood, calm you down and help you focus – depending on the particular fragrance. That’s because your “sense of smell” is located in your brain. It’s closely attached to your memory and can influence your mood and thoughts.

What’s more, scent has the potential to benefit not only your emotional well being, but also your physical well-being. So very important to know it is compatible to our human chemistry.

That’s why more and more people are using the power of essential oils for healing. You would have heard of this treatment method referred to as aromatherapy. Aromatherapy offers natural relief from various health concerns (both mental and physical) that life can hand you on a daily basis.

To help you find the perfect scent for you to enjoy and have no toxic effect here are some suggestions:

  • To get a better night’s sleep try German and Roman chamomile, sweet marjoram or ylang ylang

Radiance Forever!

Would you like to look radiant, forever?

dry skinYou may look in the mirror and see a dull complexion but, when I look at you, I see thirsty skin. In fact, I see a lot of thirsty skin in Australia and New Zealand!

Dehydration is one of the primary reasons for tired looking skin and wrinkles, and most of us experience it to some degree. Dehydration can quickly make you look years older than you really are. But don’t worry, there’s plenty you can do about it. First, let’s get something clear: when I talk about dehydration I’m not talking about dry skin; these are two different things.

The secret to revealing radiant skin

skin layersIf your skin type is “dry” – and this may be part of your genetic makeup – it means your sebaceous glands produce relatively few healthy oils. Your skin is made up of about 30 per cent water. Most of that moisture is stored in the two lower layers of skin. The top layer – the epidermis – can’t draw down into the layers below to take up moisture; the only way moisture travels up to the epidermis is when new cells carry it there.

Once those new cells bring moisture up, the epidermis must lock it in. To do this, your skin produces a film of water and oil to seal in the moisture. This is called the “hydro-lipid barrier”. Too much exposure to harsh winds or intense sun can strip the protective hydrolipid barrier, and when it breaks down, water evaporates too quickly from the epidermis, leaving your skin dehydrated. Your diet can also sap moisture. Dry, processed foods, too much sodium and excessive alcohol and caffeine will all leave you dehydrated.

It’s true what they say – radiance comes from within

drink waterFirst, drink water to moisturise your skin from the inside out. Secondly, consider nutritionally supporting your skin with organic nourishment that will help cells retain the water.

Our CELL Infuse Super Greens, which I developed myself, is designed with the core ingredients you need for healthy skin cells. Next, ditch moisturisers with harmful chemicals that make dehydrated skin worse. An effective moisturiser must contain a natural emollient (as opposed to a chemical substitute). Emollients seal in the skin’s natural moisture – Aloe or Shea butter are two examples of safe, effective emollients.

Being in the over 50+  STEMULATE is always the first product to use. I also recommend our CELL Infuse Anti-Aging Spritz, with the power of Aloe, followed by the CELL Infuse CoQ10 complex to seal in the moisture.

And, soon to be released, our CELL Infuse Organic Restore Night Cream also contains a high percentage of both Aloe and Shea Butter. By treating and and retaining the moisture both inside and out, you can certainly achieve that enviable, healthy glow known as radiance.

Here’s to a more beautiful you!
