Kelly Preston is speaking out about the health conditions that led to her 16-year-old son's death.

Jett Travolta – who died in 2009 after suffering a seizure and hitting his head in a bathtub at the family's vacation home at the Old Bahama Bay Hotel on Grand Bahama Island – suffered from autism, which Preston attributes to a series of contributing factors.

"[Jett] was autistic. He had seizures and when he was very young, he had Kawasaki Syndrome," she says on the Nov. 21 episode of The Doctors (check local listings).

Hitting the half-century mark can be daunting, but for Kelly Preston, who turned 50 on Oct. 13, the milestone birthday is reason to celebrate.

"I feel incredible. It floored me for a bit, but now I love it and I feel better than I have in years," the actress tells PEOPLE. "You are as old as you feel and I feel like I'm 25!"

It doesn't hurt that Preston, who lost 42 pounds over the first 14 months after giving birth to son Benjamin on Nov. 23, 2010, has shed an additional 7 lbs. in recent months. "I go up and down one or two pounds without worrying about it," she says. "I think I'd like to stay at this weight. I feel really healthy and I have tons of energy."

Kelly Preston Loses 39 Lbs.

When Kelly Preston gave birth to her son Benjamin Travolta a year ago, she knew losing the baby weight wouldn't be easy.

"When I got pregnant at 48, I didn't know if my body would bounce back," the actress tells PEOPLE.

Turns out, Preston had no need to worry. Not only did she shed the baby weight, but over the past year she's dipped below her pre-pregnancy weight – and is relishing a new figure and renewed vitality as she approaches the mid-century mark.

"I lost 39 lbs., have more energy than I had 20 years ago – and I feel amazing," Preston says. "I'm going to be turning 50 next year – holy s–––! Hey, 50 is the new 30."

While her husband, accomplished pilot John Travolta, may fly through the air with the greatest of ease, Kelly Preston apparently has found a formula for staying grounded.

Asked how she coped with the death of 16-year-old son Jett from a fatal seizure in 2009, Preston, 48, tells Health magazine for its September issue: "To be honest, [it was] the Scientology Center. I don't know if I would have made it through without it."

She adds about life's lessons she's learned, "Don't sweat the small things. Love your kids like it could be the last moment."

"My heart just goes out to him, and all of his family," the actress, 48, tells PEOPLE. "He's such a good person underneath all of it, he really is."

While most of the world awaits the latest Sheen tweet, rambling interview or Tiger Blood cocktail recipe, Preston recalls the days long before the troubled actor became a punch line.

John Travolta has a little mini-me: baby boy Benjamin.

"He looks like me," Travolta, 56, tells PEOPLE of his bright blue-eyed 7-week-old son at the opening of the new Breitling flagship store in New York Thursday night. "He's been great. One night, he actually slept seven hours – which is unbelievable!"

The downside to having a newborn? Traveling – but only because he's away from his little boy. Travolta was in Manhattan Thursday, while his family, including wife Kelly Preston and daughter Ella Bleu, 10, were home in Ocala, Fla.
