The “Milkshake” singer took to Instagram to explain that her wellness journey started many years ago when she first became a mother. However, her husband became sick with stage 4 stomach cancer in 2021. This prompted her to do more research about the different ways her family could improve their habits.
“My husband Mike got sick, this was a couple years ago … he was diagnosed stage four stomach cancer. It was just such a shock. We eat well, we lived on the farm already … so we were already eating well, and really focused on what we put in our bodies.”
Kelis added that she and her husband learned about ozone therapy, a practice that administers ozone gas into the body to treat wounds and diseases, as reported by Healthline. However, his tumor returned and spread throughout his body.

“It’s been exactly a year… that’s crazy to me. I’m a very private person generally, especially when there is family involved. But there is no denying the impact and evolution my husbands passing has had on my life. I get asked all the time how I started this journey. It’s a much longer conversation but in short what we were dealing with here pushed me so deep into understanding our bodies and how our minds and emotions are so interlocked you can not treat one with out the other. Our thoughts and intentions are as powerful and key as our skin health and fitness . I want to live well and this is me sharing what I know to be true.”
