Welcome to Oko-Logic
Your Place For All Things Health And Wellness
Hello! Welcome to my blog! My name is Joanna. I’m a Los Angeles-based wife and mother, a college professor, a chef and baker, a skincare formulator, a gardener, a survivor and thriver. I’m also Patient Volunteer Consultant for ASCO (American Association for Clinical Oncology).
Following a colorectal cancer diagnosis five years ago, I did what I knew best: research. I devoted all my time to studying how I can improve my chances of survival and recovery, and how to transform my lifestyle into one that would lead to optimal health and wellness. I discovered that I had to implement multiple strategies to optimize my diet, detoxify my skincare, and clean up my environment.
Now it is time to utilize my second best skill: teaching. I want to share what I’ve learned, how I changed my old habits, and how I improved my lifestyle the best way I knew. Sharing this knowledge is what this blog is all about.
You have the power to change your health and lifestyle for the better. All it takes to start are some easy swaps and your nutrition, environment, skin- and body- care can be immeasurably improved. Don’t make excuses. Learn how to unlock your true potential, download the free ebook below.

I come from a tri-lingual background. I was raised in Poland, my mother tongue is Polish. The language of my profession is German. I research, teach, and write about German literature and culture. The language of my adopted country and my home is English.
When I was starting this project, the Polish word ekologia (ecology) and the German ökologisch (ecologic) came to mind. Paired with the Polish Oko (eye), it allowed me to combine my passion for sustainability with my interest in looking closely at what makes us healthy, both body and mind. And so Oko-logic was born.
