Singer-songwriter Lorde recently shared a newsletter with her fans, disclosing her struggles with a mysterious health condition affecting her for years. She revealed that she stopped taking decade-long medication to observe how her body reacts to it.

Lorde’s updates emphasize the obstacles she has encountered while listening to her body and underscores the significance of prioritizing one’s health. She said that she made the decision to discontinue her long-standing medication only five days ago. In her newsletter, she shared:

Singer acknowledged that her body is inflamed and trying to communicate something to her

Despite her efforts to support her body, she expressed frustration with the lack of improvement.

The artist came to a significant realization this year, admitting that she neglected her body’s signals for most of her life. She wrote:

“I realised earlier this year that listening to my body is hard for me. It’s something I never really learned how to do.

“I’ve been trying to teach myself that this year, but it’s been hard, actually pretty confronting, has made me fully aware of all the times I ignored it or didn’t give it what it needed.”

The singer detailed some of the symptoms she’s experiencing, saying that her gut is not functioning properly, and her skin condition has exacerbated.

She also disclosed that she has fallen ill several times, compounding her frustrations. The artist’s vulnerability in sharing her journey highlights the challenges many face in understanding and tending to their body.
