Freelee, una ‘youtuber’ australiana de Queensland que promueve ideas veganas, ha ahorrado miles de dólares en tratamientos de belleza durante el año que ha vivido “fuera de radares” en la selva suramericana, informa el diario Daily Mail.

La bloguera vegana, de 37 años, ha huido de la “civilización occidental” con su pareja para librarse de “la vida de esclava” que llevaba trabajando cinco días a la semana.

“Quería inspirarme y sentir algo significativo todos los días”, relató Freelee.

In my early teens and most of my twenties I had serious digestive issues. I was often curled up in pain, this picture is symbolic of that. I took courses of strong antibiotics, they only intensified my issues. I was losing my sanity. I decided to book in with the ‘best gastroenterologist in Australia’. The 15 min consult cost $215. He looked ill himself but he was the “expert” after all, so I trusted him. I was sent for an endoscopy. $430 later he diagnosed me with “an inflamed gut”. Well no shit Sherlock! I could FEEL it was inflamed…but why?? He said I need not worry as there was a special medication coming from the USA soon which would heal me, in the meantime there was another drug he recommended. I knew this was a lie, I’d been there before. As he was writing the script I stood up and pushed the chair away “NO✋️I do NOT want anymore drugs!” and stormed out. Long story short, I decided to take my health into my own hands. I found the raw vegan and raw till 4 lifestyle (most importantly fruit) and finally got out of my bodies way and let my body heal itself. Freedom from your digestive distress is closer than you think. #gofreeyourself Btw – We built this composting toilet, link will be in bio.

Although it’s seldom, I still feel the pressure to conform in society, to shave my legs and underarms, to paint my face and look a certain way to others. This western self-obsession is a powerful dis-ease to shake. Some days I strut confidently, other days I pick at my insecurities, but everyday I move forward with strong purpose. I sometimes see that look of disgust from certain others at my hairy armpits and legs but I always remind myself – that person is not part of my tribe. Would I really want to spend my valuable time with someone who feels that way? About body hair? A person who thinks I’m disgusting as my natural self? Heck no! 🤷‍♀️Girls, remember, your body hair is a gift, it’s protective and part of your being, but maybe best of all it’s also a powerful natural fuckboi repellent.😉#gofreeyourself

Lately I go days without looking in the mirror even once, and I find it incredibly freeing. This was definitely not always the case. As a young woman I became obsessed with my reflection. I would spend hours a day analysing and comparing. Was it because I was vain? Because I thought I was too perfect for this world? On the contrary, I saw a face filled with ‘imperfections’. I believed the story I was told by advertisements, that I was born inadequate and in desperate need of enhancement. I saw normal human charateristics as defects to be erased or covered; to be ashamed of. I hated my skin, especially my freckles. My smile was too narrow and my teeth too crooked. My top lip too skinny. Eyes not big enough. My hair too fine. The reality is, I didn’t see the real me in the mirror. I didn’t see the cheeky girl who loved to explore nature for hours and play in the dirt and creeks, instead I saw the ugly lies the beauty industry fed me. I’ve now been many months without makeup, fake lashes, creams, treatments etc and it feels so damn liberating. Remember, you were not born flawed, you were born into a flawed system. You were designed to be wild and free, to get dirty, to love and laugh, to explore and experience this beautiful planet – not to stress over your humanness. Don’t buy the lie$ #gofreeyourself

So how do ya like ma coconuts? 😸…I just love seeing my DIY coconut bowl collection growing 😍It feels really empowering to make things myself rather than pay others. You might think “Oh I could never learn to do that, I’m just not good at that stuff” and that’s where you are wrong. I grew up without a shred of do-it-yourself experience, I was taught by this consumerist society that it’s better to just buy something rather than attempt to create it yourself. Sure, it may be quicker and easier but where is the personal satisfaction in that? Everytime I use the bowls I feel a sense of purpose and pride. You try, make mistakes (eg. hole in bottom of one bowl) but you learn and become more skilled, confident and powerful each time. Save money and become a stronger, freer woman with each project. 💪 Remember – If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you, if you are determined to learn, no one can stop you. #gofreeyourself
