She's gearing up to host the season premiere of "Dancing With The Stars" on March 18th, and now Brooke Burke is rocking the April 2013 issue of Health magazine.

While posing for the tummy-revealing Matt Jones-shot front page, the 41-year-old TV personality opens up about everything from her body to the importance of yearly doctor visits.

On pushing through her cancer scare:
"Getting my diagnosis through a routine physical was pretty shocking and a pretty important message for everyone to just be responsible enough to get regular checkups, to take care of your health, to be a good patient and follow up."

On finally letting go of her ageless bod:
"You have to embrace Mother Nature a little. I'm a woman. I'm a wife. I'm a mother of four. I don't want to look like a 25-year-old anymore. I want to be my best healthy self."

On overcoming the anxiety of everyday life:
"Dance through the chaos. Breathe through everything. I've got four kids—including a 13-year-old going on 30—and this is my second marriage. I know there's not going to be balance in every day, so I don't beat myself up. I'm an idealist; I strive and dream big. But I focus on the stuff that really matters, and I let everything else roll off. Truly, truly, truly."
