Emma Heming Willis, wife of actor Bruce Willis, opened up about her new brand focusing on women’s brain health.
In an exclusive interview with People, Heming Willis, 44, spoke about her new brand, Make Time Wellness, that helps “women make time for themselves, and put their brain, mental, emotional & physical health above all else. And yes, we can have all that and be beautiful!” per its official website.
She revealed that a few years ago she was experiencing “short-term memory and fogginess.” She visited a doctor to find the cause of her “mommy brain.”
“We always talk about breast health or heart health, but brain health was just something that I had never heard of,” she said.
After discovering what brain health was, Heming Willis started to take it more seriously.
“My brain was suffering, and I could feel it. Why is the focus on the rest of our body when really our brain is our biggest asset and the one that we should be really looking after? I found that when you put your brain first and when you are taking care of your brain, your whole body benefits,” she added.
The brand’s first four products are two types of wellness drink powders and two types of gummy vitamins
She shared with People how his diagnosis inspired her to speak out about the disorder.
“For me, it’s really about connecting to a community and being open and able to talk about dementia and to take away that stigma that there is no shame around it. I’m learning through the process,” she said.
Continuing, she said, I’m able to call an expert and speak to some of the most incredible doctors. So I guess I have a new purpose, and I’m so excited that I’m able to share what I’m learning with everyone. It’s like a fire’s been lit.”
Heming Willis continued to elaborate on her “new purpose.”
“And here I am. I hate that it’s me. I wish it wasn’t, but you know what? I’m not going to be quiet,” she added.
She assured she is “going to use my voice and through action, awareness and conversation, that creates change.”
