My health journey began in the early 1980’s when I felt, and looked, like … well, let’s just say it was really bad, and I was determined to find out why. I’m Susan Rosin, the host of the Healthy Tips After 50 Podcast, and in my early 30’s I found out that I was allergic to wheat, cows (i.e. milk and beef), a bunch of veggies & fruits, and almost all perfumes & scents. I cut all of these out and within 2-3 days I was feeling better than I had in months. I also found out that that was all my new allergist could do for me, no shots, or any other prescriptions.
At that point I became obsessed with finding places where I could buy food that I could eat and with learning as much as I possibly could about my health situation. This was pre-internet and way before anyone used or even heard of the terms gluten free or dairy free. I found a few small Health Food Stores (do you remember those?) where I could buy very obscure, and expensive, food products like rice noodles and crackers, soy milk, and quinoa. They also carried books about health, organics, vitamins, etc., from small printing houses which I read cover to cover.
Fast forward almost 30 years and the world is very different – the biggest problem now is finding one’s way through too much information and too many food products and supplements. I still spend a lot of my time reading and learning about health and wellness in books, talks, and on the internet. And I have to laugh when I say to someone that I can’t do dairy or wheat and they just nod knowingly. But, after many years of sharing my knowledge and personal experience through HTA50 podcasts I have found that I have expanded my understanding of health & wellness and found it to be much more than just our physical bodies — it’s also the mental, emotional, intuitive, and holistic parts of our lives and the lives of everyone on this earth that we all call home. I hope that you will join me going forward to help in the expansion of the HTA50 community and the world by subscribing to my podcast and leaving me your comments on iTunes, Stitcher, GooglePlay, and/or here on my website.
