During March 2013 I was so sick that I was nearly dead. I survived off boiled water and honey for three weeks, because everything else made my throat constrict. I had over 75 food allergies and was also reacting to chemicals, environmentals, inhalants, pets, seasonals, the list goes on. My various allergies made it impossible for me to get the vitamins and minerals I need to thrive from day-to-day. As a result of these deficiencies, I developed adrenal exhaustion, anemia, leaky gut syndrome, among various other problems. I also had Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS) which made it impossible for me to leave my house without a mask on (car exhaust and other fumes made me feel like I was suffocating, etc.). I heard about NAET through word of mouth, but I was very skeptical about whether it would help. However, I was literally knocking on death's door and desperate for any kind of help.
I started seeing Dr. Miller twice a week for NAET treatments, but also received great naturopathic care. I live in Kelowna, so I drove to Vernon for each visit... and it was SO WORTH IT! In under 5 months, I'm quickly getting my life back. I'm now able to eat a balanced diet, including things I never thought I'd be able to safely consume again! I don't require a mask anymore and can safely drive myself through heavy traffic without getting any allergy symptoms. I don't have to worry about other people's perfume/aftershave, nor do I need to be concerned about the smells of cleaning agents and VOCs. The freedom is exhilarating! I haven't experienced any anaphylaxis since we started treatment either! Overall my health has made a steady progress for the better. I'm healthy enough to get a job now, and hopefully able to return to school soon. Dr. Miller has not only saved my life, he has also taught me so many useful tools for getting through each day. During treatments, we often discuss how to effectively deal with emotions, techniques to achieve great things in life, and various alternative remedies for all sorts of ailments. He teaches me about herbs and even helped me create a homemade tea mix for my Mom's migraines and arthritis. Dr. Miller also lets me borrow his books and DVDs whenever I want, so I can learn more about the things that interest me. So he's not just a doctor, but also a great teacher and life coach.
Words can't even express how grateful I am to have Dr. Miller as my doctor. He has made a huge impact in my life. I've been getting so healthy that people keep telling me I look radiant! The bags under my eyes are gone, and I have energy when I wake up in the mornings. I've also been able to make positive changes in other areas of my life - getting rid of the negativity and learning positivity. Sometimes he even gives me fun "homework" like writing lists of goals and ambitions, which have benefited me greatly. I absolutely love his holistic approach! I definitely believe that in order to be healthy, you have to address more than just the physical self... you have to be healthy in mind, body, AND spirit! I look forward to appointments, and I miss Dr. Miller and Elaine now that I don't need to go as often!Thank you, Elaine, for always being in a fantastic mood and brightening my days. Thank you, Dr. Miller, for the life lessons, the coping mechanisms, the health advice, the philosophical chats, and for helping me to be functional again. "
