Debra started working with Ali 5 years post colon cancer treatment which included a bowel resection, radiation and chemotherapy.
For years, she experienced inflammatory bowel disease with urgency, frequent loose stools, anxiety, neuropathy (tingling sensation in hands and feet), severe leg cramping causing waking in the middle of the night and weight gain. She was fearful to eat raw vegetables and relied heavily on refined carbohydrates as “safe choices” advised by the hospital as a low-residue diet. Ali ran a micronutrient assessment to identify those deficiencies resulting from the bowel resection and the limited diet, she worked with pharmaceutical grade supplements to regain optimal nutritional stores and food-as-medicine to strategically replete deficiency. Ali customized her diet based on a food sensitivity panel to reduce inflammatory response while working to correct digestive function.

“Ali Miller has been so patient with my issues and has given me my life back. I simply cannot say enough. Ali keep up with all you do! You are making huge differences in people’s lives. I’ve learned so many things during my time with Ali but perhaps the most important has been that there is a blood test to help identify foods that have been causing issues for my body (MRT) and that there is a program aimed at eliminating these foods and eating more sensibly – all for better health. I feel better than I’ve felt in over a decade! I have had increased energy and an improved disposition. Just “feeling better” in and of itself improves everything!”
Augustin came to us with his mom, Maria, who was concerned about his severe eczema with ulcerations and exposed wounds. After seeing numerous pediatricians and dermatologists with no results, Maria, who was suffering from bloating and food sensitivities herself decided to seek out Ali’s food-as-medicine protocols. From their first appointment, Ali decided as Augustin was primarily breastfed that the protocol needed to be focused on mom to resolve his gut for optimal immune function and reduced eczema response. Following a gentle but effective candida cleanse and a bacteria reset protocol, Ali started Augustin on a protocol with probiotics and a low reactive tailored diet with supportive foods to restore gut and immune function while supporting healthy skin recovery. In just 3 months there were remarkable changes bringing tears from mom and dad in follow-up sessions, in 6 months his skin that was once irritated and scabbed became porcelain clear and his digestive processes improved.
Severe eczema was resolved primarily in 3 months, completely in 6 months. Bowel movements changed from irregular and loose to consistent, well formed, and he experienced less gas with improved quality of sleep.
“I came to Ali originally to help with my baby’s eczema. Guiding me through the healing process from my own digestive issues, she helped my baby heal too.
I love that Ali knows how food works AND offers delicious recipes to help with the healing process. Many thanks to Ali and her team!” –Maria Romero (Augustin’s mom)
Robbie was a participant of Ali’s food-as-medicine groups and a regular participant in her Reset, Restore, Renew: 10 day detox program which really motivated her to learn about the role that food played on her body and how to redefine her relationship with food. Robbie started working with Ali individually and began working towards body composition change as an additional way to measure her successful dietary changes. She joined a rigorous exercise program led by a personal trainer and Ali ensured she was supported with clean nourishing fuel to test her body’s ability to truly transform. Even with a busy executive work schedule and travel, Robbie was able to stay on track with a protocol to perform as an elite athlete.
Lost 8% body fat, 3rd place in Classic Bikini Competition, gained a new understanding of food-as-medicine and now has reduced cravings and renewed relationship with how to use food to fuel the body rather than create sluggishness or toxicity.
“For the first time I truly understand what foods are good for me and which foods are literally killing me! Ali explains what foods to eat to help me be healthy from the inside out! The food-as-medicine approach is fascinating and has changed my life in so many ways. I’m now eating foods I’m ashamed to say I didn’t know existed and I love them! All organic foods, chia seeds, coconut oil, flax, kale… the list goes on! I encourage you to take the first step toward gaining your health back with Ali Miller, RD!” –Robbie Pape
Carlos started working with Ali after a year of misdiagnosis and poor digestive health compromising his quality of life, performance, nutritional status, and mood. Carlos was on high dose nexium to treat his reflux and felt nauseas all the time dealing with irritable bowel, vomiting, nausea, and a loss of appetite working to force feed for sustenance. Carlos presented weak, anxious, and nutritionally deficient. Ali assess his GI state with a stool assessment and inflammatory food panel to address dysbiosis, yeast overgrowth, and customized a meal plan based on his results while supporting optimal digestive function with enzymes and probiotics. Ali addressed the micro-nutritional deficiencies with strategic supplementation and was able to reset appetite by getting the digestive tract to heal and begin improve gastric secretions. Following the bacterial cleanse, Ali worked with Carlos on a HCl- acid challenge to wean off nexium and aid in long-term remission ultimately clearing the chronic “lump” in his throat and correcting his digestive state leading to improved nutrient absorption and restoration towards a healthy weight.
Energy levels are back to normal, stress is gone, I feel myself again. All my gastic problems are gone such as nausea, pain, vomiting gastric juices, constant diarrhea, GERD, constant lump in throat feeling….It feels great to start gaining weight again after losing over 20 pounds!
“Ali treats the root cause of the problem not just the symptom, before consulting with Ali, doctors only gave me pills to try to make my symptoms better and they even removed my gallbladder (of course symptoms didn’t go away, they became worse) completely opposite of what Ali did which is restore my whole digestive system. In the end the pills prescribed by doctors did me more harm than good and made my condition worse. Ali’s knowledge of functional medicine was able to pinpoint my problem and solve it to fully recover in a few months when I’ve been ill for years. It is amazing how with the right practitioner, labs, and action plan the body can fully recuperate on its own- with the help from healthy food and the quality supplements!“ –Carlos Garcia
Steve E. joined our Ketosis group after watching Ali on Fox 26 for over 2 years and following the information from her TV segments. Prior to joining the group, Steve lowered his insulin levels from 44 to 14 by following a segment on insulin resistance seen with artificial sweeteners. Steve kicked the can of diet soda and his results followed taking him from pre-diabetic to balanced health. In the ketosis group, Steve learned how to reduce his carbohydrate intake and liberated his diet with healthy fats and moderate protein. In the 6 week program he dropped 3% body fat and jump started his weight loss journey. Following the group, he started working with Carli, a Naturally Nourished practitioner, on a tailored functional medicine program. He was able to successfully reduce cardiovascular risk factors and reduce medication load while improving testosterone and lean body mass!

With successful weight loss and stress reduction was able to get off blood pressure medication. Improved energy, favorable body composition changes, and improved quality of life!
“I learned that you don’t have to take a pill to fix an ill! That Food can be Medicine and I felt empowered to take control of my health! I look at food differently, more as fuel and understand how the decisions make me feel and influence my body.
I now crave more simple foods and have replaced some previous habits with healthy ones such as walking, planks, push-ups and snacking on nuts, choosing protein over carbs when possible! Food-as-Medicine Rocks!” -Steve Evans
