Laura Dundovic: 'I Got Every Possible Sickness'
Friday 15 January 2016
'I got every possible sickness': Laura Dundovic reveals how she overcame battle with chronic fatigue syndrome during her teenage years
But the 28-year-old model says she hasn't always felt so fit and runway ready due to suffering chronic fatigue syndrome when she was a teenager.
'I’ve had to make changes in my life and create goals. I needed to push myself through those tough tasks to change my future.'
Elaborating on some of the lifestyle changes she has made, the model continues: 'Subtle changes such as being fit and healthy outdoors, and keeping my hair nourished and manageable through summer months has helped me to look good, feel better and motivate me to fulfil my goals.'
In the video Laura is seen working out with online beauty and fashion sensation Ruby Golani, the pair working up a sweat as they do some beachside boxing.
Laura is later seen walking towards the ocean in a sleek black and white swimsuit, before plunging into the water leaving her luscious golden locks drenched.
'I like going for swims, making sure that I drink at least two litres of water a day (and) as well as that, just eating really really fresh, clean food,' she adds.
Chronic fatigue syndrome is also known as ME.
Its hallmark is persistent and profound fatigue where, on a bad day, a simple activity like grocery shopping can put someone to bed.
It is often accompanied by memory problems or other symptoms.
These include joint and muscle pain, incapacitating headaches, food intolerance, a sore throat or enlarged lymph nodes and sensitivity to light.
Laura was just 20 years of age when she was crowned Miss Universe Australia, before going on to represent her country in the international pageant finals.
It was that year she was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome after wondering for years why she was feeling tired and unwell.
Speaking to The Glow about her condition last year, Laura said: 'I don’t think you ever go back to normal, but I don’t tend to get sick any more. I just get run down and a bit tired, whereas before I was just sick all the time'.
