I was born with auto immune challenges and have struggled with my immune system, skin and My weight since I was a young child. When I was 13 is when I started to get severe excema all over my body. It would show up in red Patches from head to toe. I also struggled with thyroid issues which caused me to have severe weight gain, and that was a constant roller coaster for many years.
I would go to the doctors frequently to get my blood drawn and test ran, and the Doctors would prescribe me thyroid prescriptions that would constantly be changing the Dosage because it was not working. My skin would get worse and my weight would just Sky rocket. I was 14 and I was in the dressing room with my mom and I will never forget that day as I was a size 14 as a 14 year old and keep in mind my height was about 4”4, it was mortifying to me. I just wanted to be at a normal weight, and I wanted my skin to look and feel normal again. A few years later, my mom DR. Julie Miller went to school to become a Naturopath and everything changed from there. She started to dig deep to the root of the problem to try to help regulate my weight and help with my skin. It took some time, but I was able to come off my Thyroid Medication and I was able to start seeing my body heal and my weight started to come down. Although it was a battle for me, as I have had struggled with depression and as the years went on I lost weight, but then when I was 22 I was the biggest I have ever been in my life.
I was bullied, made fun of, and put down by people around me. I didn’t make it known that it bothered me as I am a strong willed woman, but deep down inside it caused my depression to get worse and my weight just kept going up. Till one day I remember looking at myself in the mirror and saying to myself I have had enough, it is time to change and be committed to myself. So I spent a year working on myself, working out, eating healthy, and listening to my MOM the Expert, and for once in my life I lost over 99 pounds and my skin was under control and almost clear.
Going through the lifestyle change I did is how I decided to go to school and become a health, life and nutrition coach, as well as a certified personal trainer. I was so inspired by My mom who is A Naturopathic Doctor, and also inspired by my sister who is a Nutritionist. It was such a great feeling knowing that I was able to let go of my depression and become the Me I have always wanted to become.
