Hello! My name is Kathy Milliron and I am a Holistic health coach, stress management coach, certified master hypnotist, and FasterEFT practitioner.
So who am I and what is the story of my life…..the one that led me to follow my path to becoming a holistic health coach?
I haven’t always been a healthy person. As a matter of fact, I lived many decades as
a completely unhealthy person. I have been overweight for pretty much as long as I can remember. I remember going to Weight Watchers meetings with my Mom when I was a pre-teen (yikes!). I spent my teen years being about 30-40 pounds overweight. It definitely took a toll on my self-esteem.
Once I was in college and had the freedom to go and do what I wanted, my food addiction kicked into high gear. Fast food was my best friend and I regularly spent entire paychecks from my part time job on drive thru fare. By the time I was 23, I was morbidly obese…..and uncomfortable in my own skin. I hated who I was (and it didn’t help that I was an opera singer…..can’t you just hear jokes about it not being over until the fat lady sings…..that was me!)
My highest weight was around the time that I graduated from college. I was almost 260 pounds!
I was completely uncomfortable in my own skin. On top of that, I really didn’t like who I was. I was putting way too much pressure on myself to be “perfect” and the more I strove for perfection, the more weight I gained. I was living to eat….and, eating lots and lots of fake food! Not only was my weight out of control, but I was also experiencing some health issues. I began having extreme anxiety and depression. I was having severe reflux every single day. My self esteem and my health were in the toilet and something had to change! I did not want to live that way any more!!
In 2010, I had a couple of life changing events that really put things into perspective for me. My mother was diagnosed with uterine cancer and at the same time, I was forced to make the decision to leave a job that I had been at for just under 9 years, cutting our family income significantly.
That was a very stressful time for me. It was a very emotional time for me too. The stress was so great that I actually ended up in the hospital myself with severe chest pains that I thought were a heart attack. Those chest pains ended up only being anxiety (thank goodness!!) But as scary as that time in my life was, it also brought me a lot of clarity as well. Life really is too short. There were many blessings in the difficulties. I finally recognized that leaving my job was the best thing that could happen to me. It was a job that was not my passion and I finally recognized that it was not filling my spirit, but holding me back. Leaving gave me the time to connect with my true passion….natural health!
Throughout my life I’ve always been fascinated with natural ways to heal the body. I loved learning about natural health on my journey to heal myself. And to say that I am passionate about it is an understatement. As a result, over the years I have studies a host of different natural healing modalities such as hypnosis, aromatherapy, NLP, EFT, FasterEFT and nutrition. So I decided to pursue the love for natural health.
I received my Holistic Health Coaching training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, the largest nutrition school in the world. It was here that I was trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. Drawing on this knowledge, I will help you create a completely personalized “roadmap to health” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals. I can help you to transform your health and transform your life.
