A transgender witch lost a whopping ten stone in just one year – and claims the secret to her weight loss was casting SPELLS.
Skye Valuntino, who was born a boy called Ryan, first became a woman at the age of 18 and has taken hormone treatment ever since.
But the intense course of the powerful drugs caused the hairdresser and make-up artist to pile on the weight – and she tipped the scales at a whopping 21 stone.
In August last year, Skye, 30, had a gastric sleeve fitted which reduced her stomach to the size of a golf ball.
But Skye claims the main reason for her weight loss was witchcraft and white magic, involving drinking a cocktail of natural herbs brewed in her cauldron at home.
In just 12 months Skye dropped to a trim 11 stone as well as going from a hefty size 22 to a svelte size eight.
She claims the herbal remedies have also healed people of illnesses and helped others to lose weight.
Skye, from Edgbaston, Birmingham, said: “I had piled on the weight due to the hormone treatment (to become a woman).
“I needed to control my weight as the treatment was making it spiral out of control.
“I also had a poor diet, so I knew I had to make a change.
“I had a gastric sleeve fitted on August 7 last year to help me lose the weight but I also cast regular spells to help the weight loss continue and to keep the hunger pangs at bay.
“It has been an incredible success. In just one year I managed to shed 10 stone in weight and I feel great.
“I can eat what I want now, but I just have to watch my portions.
“I have to drink water people I eat so it fills me up and stops me from overeating.
“I always knew I was different from other boys. I was bullied quite badly at times both verbally and physically.
“I went through a lot of stressful times but in the end it made me stronger and I am a very confident woman today.
“I was always very sensitive to the spirit world and class myself as a spiritualist witch.
“I am a white witch only casting spells for people which are good and positive.
“I have a cauldron and a crystal ball and that’s all I need.
“I used to run round on a broomstick as a kid and I was always making potions out of things in the garden.
“It died down a bit in my teens, but in my late 20s it really started to surface.
“I lost some ancestors and I had to let my soul leave my body to let one of my ancestor’s souls in.
“I had a sorcerer trying to kill me. If you are around negative energy then you will be negative, so you need to ignore it and fight it off.
“I can read people’s minds too. It’s quite draining fighting evil.
“You wouldn’t believe how much time and energy I put into it.
“I’m immortal now. I find it had to breathe when I know someone close to me is about to pass away.
“If people need help in losing weight then they are only too welcome to come to me and I will cast a spell to help the weight just drop off.
“I put people through awakenings. I’ve had someone come to me because they couldn’t get pregnant, but I could sense that myself through smells.
“When I cast spells, I go into another format. My eyes change and I connect to the spirits.
“I use white candles to bring in the Holy Spirit and salt to symbolise purity and to banish evil.
“I don’t use black candles as that is from black magic and that’s the evil side which is related to voodoo.
“You’d be surprised what I can do.
“I can heal people with my hands. I’m quite a gifted person.
“I have a permanent glow around my body and my cats have it too.
“Every gift that Jesus have, I have too.”
Skye has also carried out modelling work and has appeared as an extra in a film.
Last year she starred on Judge Geordie, presented by former I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here winner Vicky Pattison.
