Ashli — a life update
Ahhh, this episode has been promised for a long time. After a turbulent few months, I feel stronger and more positive than ever.
I discuss what TF happened when I got sick in December, two new health diagnoses, the warehouse fire, and what's next.
It's my wedding week, so I am checking out for a few weeks so I can relax and reset.
Catch you in March.
Eleanor Pendleton — dyshidrotic eczema
Ahh, I am SO excited to share this episode with Gritty Pretty founder, Eleanor Pendleton — a kind, welcoming and humble human being.
She experienced dyshidrotic eczema on her hands and feet as a kid to the point where walking was painful. After testing positive for COVID in 2022, her body bought it back, the first time as an adult. El is also pregnant, so she shares some pregnancy skincare tips too.
We met in person at December's Women with Gritt event, which is close to when I recorded this episode. I haven't been able to edit and get this live, until now.
I hope you enjoy it as much as me.
Nikola — psoriasis and dermatitis.
Ok, it's been a hot minute.
I had planned for the podcast to run throughout the entire summer break, into the new year, but the universe had other plans for me. I had a horrible case of COVID, ended up in hospital, and have been recovering ever since.
This week’s episode is with the amazing Nikola, who is a long-time customer Nikola. She’s been living with psoriasis since she was in primary school. She struggled at school and didn’t know anyone else who was living the same life as her. After school, she started working in aged care, which was not kind to her skin.
She ended up flaring and going from specialist to specialist to work out what it was. Nothing really helped until Google helped her.
I will let her tell you the story, but she took control of her life and now is living comfortably, naturally.
Kristy — Breast cancer
Hello! Welcome back to another episode of Allergy Proof. We are getting SO close to Christmas, I am dying to get there. My weeks have been filled with prep work so I can take a proper break this year. Luke and I are going away and will be off the grid for a few days, which I am pumped for.
We have a couple of episodes left for the year and some that I am excited to share. Today’s guest is the incredible Kristy. She’s been a Yours Only customer for some time now after her sister discovered us and purchased COAT to soothe her psoriasis. We’re actually here to talk about her diagnosis of breast cancer, and how she went through multiple surgeries including a hysterectomy and mastectomy to keep her in good health. I loved this chat so much because as you will hear at the end, she was so grateful that people would want to hear her story after a rough couple of years.
Ricayla — Endo, psoriasis and mental illness
Hiiii! Welcome back to another episode with a Yours Only community member. This week we’re talking to the amazing Ricayla from New Zealand, who experiences endo, psoriasis, and mental illness. I’m hoping by sharing her story we will be able to increase awareness on all topics, as endometriosis is something that is so incredibly hard to diagnose. I’ve actually just been diagnosed with adenomyosis, which is similar to endo, but within the uterus. It’s something I need to learn more about, so when I am ready, I’ll share more with you.
For now, pls know this episode discusses mental illness - if you or anyone you know needs help, you can always call lifeline on 13 11 14.
