From Sick to Fit
My name is Diane Vich. I am a Registered Nurse, Professor of Nursing and former Special Educator. I am also a mother and wife. My sick2fit journey began in January 2013 with nutrition and fitness. This was a highly stressful time in my life, balancing two young children, full-time employment, full-time Graduate nursing courses and a traveling husband.
The time of body illness and fatigue had reached its peak, I was exhausted, taking 13 prescription medications just to get by. I had migraines, gastrointestinal reflux (GERD), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), severe hair loss, carpal tunnel, nerve pain down my right arm, temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ), anxiety, and constant body pains. The symptoms and illness was so severe, I was constantly at the doctors and specialists with no solution to my problem for 35 years of my life.
The realization came to me after physicians tried to label me with “fibromyalgia.” I’m a nurse I’ve seen patients with this and my mother as well. I was not going to accept this vague diagnosis that essentially means your crazy and inventing these pains on yourself.
I knew I had to find a solution, stop taking prescription medications and become well again for my children and family. I want to help people fight back against their health struggles and stop the suffering in the world. I remember how frustrated and hopeless, I felt over the years. Let me know how I can help You. I am here to guide you.
The journey took me to see a homeopathic doctor; I was actually looking for acupuncture to deal with my chronic neck and shoulder pain. In the end this visit helped me find a solution to all my problems.
Finally, the homeopathic physician understood me and the results showed the truth. My biggest problem was my bodies storage of minerals and elements had already been critically low. With these low levels, I had two babies, breastfed them each for a year, which caused a spiral of events and worsening of symptoms. I was right the entire time, my body was weak and missing the nutrients I need. I had been eating poorly for years, eating processed food, junk food, and protein only. Vegetables were nonexistent in my diet. I had removed them from my body and my families diet as well. All of these changes in diet, family life, stress and illness made me realize my body needed balance and nutritional support.
What is balance? It is individualized and personal, it requires internal analysis and reflection, it requires relaxation and deep breathing to connect with your body. Now, I ask you to stop reading, take three deep long breaths and read the introduction again. My story might inspire you or someone you love to feel healthier, happier and more energetic.
