Shaline Miller became my Health Coach for about 1-1/2 months (in April/May 2020) as a result of my doctor prescribing a strong dosage of medication to prevent recurrence of melanoma cancer. Since I was only 100 lbs (age 81), I gradually became extremely ill and weak. With many side effects such as projectile vomiting, diarrhea, anemia, dizziness, etc., I was so weak I could barely walk (needed a walker). I also lost part of my memory, vision, and hearing.
I stopped taking the cancer medication after 2 months and had to call 911 because I was about to pass out. I was nauseated, dehydrated, dizzy, and developed arrhythmia (irregular heart beat).
As my Health Coach, Shaline first determined specific food requirements for me based on my blood test results at that time. A few examples:
o Being pre-diabetic with high LDL cholestrol, Shaline suggested morning meals eating oatmeal and adding cinnamon to help stabilize blood sugar.
o Being anemic, Red Blood Count (RBC) was low. Shaline suggested eating a specific cereal with high iron content to help raise the RBC. Also suggested drinking plenty of water and eating various high protein foods to help get rid of dizziness and to help regain body strength.
o The cancer medication affected my liver and kidney. Shaline suggested foods that could help cleanse or detox the liver and/or kidney.
In addition to a healthy diet, Shaline suggested making some lifestyle changes by meditating, doing yoga exercises, and other options to reduce stress, get more sleep, and improve overall body wellness.
With Shaline’s guidance, my blood test results returned to normal by July 2020. By making healthier food choices (including healthier snacks) to benefit my diet and also my immune system, I have regained body strength and feel much better. I now meditate, listen to soothing music, and do yoga exercises and exercises designed for Seniors. (Did not require a walker after about 4 weeks of exercising. I am again taking the same cancer medication, but at the lowest dosage possible, without much side effects.)
I highly recommend Shaline Miller as a Health Coach for anyone needing guidance in making healthy food choices and/or in healthy lifestyle methods. Shaline’s knowledge in both dietary theories and lifestyle guidance, and her patience and commitment to one’s health, are qualities of an excellent Health Coach. I am forever grateful to Shaline on how she has improved my overall health and well-being in such a short time.

I met Shaline Miller on line about 8 years ago. I was in a rough time of my life emotionally and physically. I just found out I was diabetic. I was very overweight and I had high blood pressure. I was still recovering from fracturing my back in 2009.
I recommend Shaline Miller as a Health coach to any one who has a need to have someone who needs personal, one-on-one support and guidance, especially health-wise and nutrition-wise. I have had bad health for quite a long time in my life and it was hard for me to navigate all the medications I have to take daily. I have to make wise choices on what I can and cannot eat. I am in the process of starting dialysis as my kidneys are not functioning well. With the tips that come from Ms. Miller I am able to eat healthier and I will know what not to eat when I take certain medications. She has a book entitled “Healthy Living Made Easy” which I refer to often.
Ms. Miller goes to many conferences and updates her knowledge in this area of healthy living. I highly recommend her.
Since working with Shaline, I noticed several positive changes to my lifestyle. With Shaline’s coaching, I achieved my health goals. These are some of the positive changes I have made: substituted coffee for tea, added in vegetables smoothies daily, increased fish consumption, more home cooking, and no longer eat beef. With Shaline’s suggestions, I added pea or hemp protein into my smoothies instead of dairy protein and I noticed that I felt better. I also added super foods such as cacao powder, marine phytoplankton, spirulina, maca powder which gave me more energy. One of my major achievements was eliminating process sugar. I drink more water. I incorporated Shaline’s suggestions and recipes to my meals. Overall, I found that when Shaline shared what she does herself gave me confidence.
