After discovering a lump on her breast at age 49, supermodel Elle Macpherson feared the worst. Had her age and lifestyle finally caught up with her?

Although she believed it was cancer, she did not see a doctor right away. On Sunday, as reported by the Daily Mail, Macpherson admitted she was scared to receive the results of the diagnosis.

“I thought I had cancer. I was away shooting Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model so I couldn’t see my doctor and I was really panicking. It was four weeks before I got the biopsy results, so it was a long-drawn-out and stressful period of not knowing.”

It turns out the Aussie beauty was lucky, as the tumor was a benign growth of tissue and non-life threatening. However, Macpherson took it as a warning and at the time approaching 50-years-old, she decided that day to take a deep look at her diet and lifestyle.

“I did some soul searching and realized that maybe I was taking the wrong vitamins and minerals, not eating properly and was too stressed.”

Afterwards, Macpherson went to see a nutritionist, Dr. Simone Laubscher, who explained how her high acid diet may be the culprit. She also advised Macpherson to stop taking synthetic supplements and eliminate stress from her life.

After the meeting, Macpherson recalls the details of the conversation with Dr. Laubscher.

“Disease thrives in an acidic body and I didn’t realize that stress, worry, jet lag, not getting enough sleep, and eating too much red meat, dairy or not enough greens, can make your body acidic.”
