In episode #39 we are hearing the power of going gray with your hair with Lisa, from The New Knew. Lisa is the face behind the blog, The New Knew. Where she blogs about all things clean living, natural beauty and healthy eats. For the last two years she’s taken her readers on the ups and downs of going gray and what sparked the whole journey in the first place. She went all in with green living just a few years ago. It was the cumulation of a couple of things that happened which brought her into “her awareness” as she calls it. She started wondering what the hype was with “organics” and if it was really a thing or just another sales tactic. Her mom was diagnosed with a brain tumor for the fourth time, her little one was suffering from Eczema and then one day her friend Angela said to her, “Did you know they wash chickens in chlorine?”
Pretty much from that moment on Lisa was on a quest to know and went hardcore all-in. She went crazy turning over all of her products including toothpaste, deodorant and Tupperware containers. She threw out the kids fluoride and hydrocortisone cream. Out went the Clorox wipes and the stainless steel cleaner. Dryer sheets were a thing of the past. Forget refined sugars – they didn’t even stand a chance. She started making my own toothpaste and makeup, she didn’t eat out, she wouldn’t even look at processed or refined food. Vinegar became my best friend. Those were the dark days…. Then after some time and some serious label reading, She realized she could actually rejoin society and still make safe decisions for her family. Everyday more organic options, healthy restaurants, products, food stores and resources are becoming available. Not only is Lisa passionate about spreading the message but also enjoying living out her best natural life. After all nontoxic living is anything but boring!
