Welcome to my site Healthy Inside & Out with Allyson Morgan
Hi, my name is Allyson Morgan and I live on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland Australia.
I first started this website back in Oct 2010 as a place to share tips for online marketing, social media marketing and also share my How To videos.as well as a few personal development posts.
Over the past year various incidents and issues crossed my path that led me to wanting to share more about health and well being.
A little bit about me……
I grew up in the Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne, Australia. The youngest of 7 children and learnt from a very young age that if I wanted something (not needed – but wanted) I had to find a way to get it or to get somewhere on my own accord.
After I finished high school I had various jobs from Retail Assistant to Finance Broker to Jewellery Store Manager to Fitness Centre Owner.
Lack of knowledge & Experience cost me everything!
When I was 29 I was the owner of a Fitness Centre of which myself and my partner did most of the work ourselves from cleaning up a building that had been gutted for years to painting the entire centre. I was an Aerobic Instructor and was teaching anything up to 25 classes per week and when I wasn’t teaching I was running reception or doing all of the book keeping. After 18mths and hours upon hours of work I lost the centre due to a lack of Business experience. I lost everything and went Bankrupt.
BUT I NEVER GAVE UP!!
It was then that I came across the book “The Richest Man in Babylon” I followed the guidelines of the book to a tee and started paying myself 10% of my earnings before I paid anything and anyone else. This was my reward! Doing this totally turned things around and before I knew it I was back to being financially comfortable as well as learning new skills and just being content with who I was.
From then on I started a collection of books to read on Personal Development, Self Awareness etc.
At the age of 34 I moved to Queensland and began work as a Sales Representative for a Blind company, after nearly 18 mths the company had to make my position a commission only position which was not for me so I found myself a new job as a Territory Sales Manager for 3 yrs and then a Fitness Centre Manager for 2 years. In 2008 I started working online, firstly with a bit of Affiliate Marketing and then with a Personal Development Company that took me to Mexico and Hawaii for Business Conferences.. But this business had more expenses than I ever thought a home business would have so I got back into the work force and started working at a Supermarket.
But then came the health challenges!!
In January 2013 I was diagnosed with Lupus and started an intensive search on health and nutrition. I firstly came across a water technique in Feb in which I use everyday now and always will. Then at the end of Feb I went along to a screening of FoodMatters.TV which was the biggest eye opener of all time when it comes to health.
On March 2nd I made the decision to get rid of all “bad foods” and to only eat what was good for me nutritionally. Within 4 months of eating “good food” not only had most of my Lupus symptoms disappeared but as an added bonus I lost 11 kgs ( 24 pounds). And have never actually felt this good my entire life. After almost 48 yrs of eating processed foods and sugar I don’t expect to be at my peak of health for a few months yet but I’m certainly on the way! This also prompted me to research foods and experiment with recipes and needless to say I started designing my own healthy recipes and sharing them with friends.
The next step was to rid all toxins from my home!
In March I also wanted to get rid of all the toxins in my home along with changing my eating habits but I thought I would take one step at a time, so I started my research on toxins in products I had in my household which was also a huge eye opener. I always knew or was aware of SLS ( Sodium Laurel Sulphates) and Fluoride and parabens and lots of other nasty chemicals, I just didn’t realise the extent of the effect it was having on me, even though I was now healthier than ever before. In June I changed over every product in my household for safe products. When I say every product I mean Shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, skin care, make-up, cleaning products under the sink and in the laundry. Everything went and was replaced by safe products.
Within 2 weeks of changing over my household products my skin was flawless for the first time in over 30 years! I had already changed my eating habits to have nothing but good wholesome foods ( 80% raw) and although I was feeling great and had lost 11 kgs I still was having breakouts which totally baffled me – How could someone who has no sugar, no processed foods, mainly raw vegetables still be getting pimples?? I never would have thought that getting rid of all the toxins in my house would be the “thing” that finally stopped me breaking out!
This is why my motto is now HEALTHY INSIDE AND OUT as one without the other only gets you half the results.
I am very grateful to all those who have been an influence in my life and thank you all for taking the time to read my website. I hope that you enjoy it and share it with others 🙂
