"I am pleased to have met Dr. Vilich recently - I have hypothyroidism and she was able to address this disease with an all natural thyroid medicine which according to my blood work results brought my TSH level back within the normal range after only one week. She is experienced in finding out why patients have chronic diseases and helps find solutions to make them heal.
After many years of fatigue, without knowing the reason why, I am feeling more energetic now and finally have a plan of action for my health. I recommend Dr. Vilich to help you address your symptoms and receive a healthy plan of action - Thank you Dr. Fatima! "

Dr. Vilich has changed my health dramatically. I was looking for a functional practitioner who was also an MD in the Chicago area and found her practice. I have lost 35 pounds in over 9 weeks just by eating healthy foods and my fasting sugars dropped 39 points without any medication. The best part of this journey is the science based approach to medicine and the whole body philosophy. Without her extensive tests, we would have never discovered that I was not digesting fats and taken steps to correct the condition. I am extremely lucky to have found her.

Dear Dr. Fatima,
Meri S. / 52
I have been suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia and extreme fatigue for the past 2 1/2 years. I have tried several biologic drugs which have made my symptoms much worse. I was also on methotrexate and steroids. There were times I had over 50 symptoms. I went to Mayo Clinic two times last year. I also had several visits to the Emergency Room last year for heart problems.
Dr. Vilich was able to get me off all of my medicines. She looked at what was going on on a cellular level in my body, food sensitivities, infections and recommended vitamins, supplements, dietary changes along with life style changes. Everything was based on scientific evidence and she used her expertise to work out a plan that changed my life in a very short time.
I now have significantly lower joint pain, fatigue and have lost all the weight I gained from being on the various medicines.
Dr. Vilich is very knowledgeable about autoimmune diseases and chronic pain. She is very compassionate and caring. She responds immediately to any questions I have.
I never thought I could get off of my rheumatoid arthritis medicines and now I am off the medicine and able to participate in sports I thought I could no longer do. I have more energy to enjoy time with my family and friends. I have been unable to work due to my health. Now I am looking for a career and don't feel limited to the type of work I can physically perform.
Thank you Dr. Vilich! You are an amazing and compassionate doctor. You have given me my life back and a positive outlook on life again.
Hi Dr. Fatima,
My 13 year old daughter Anais was suffering from severe abdominal cramps for several weeks. Often after meals she would be bent over in pain and unable to function. Dr. Vilich spent almost two hours with her learning every detail about my daughter's habits, pain and family history. After a series of tests we found out that Anais is suffering from celiac disease. Again, Dr. Vilich took a lot of time patiently explaining to Anais what that meant making sure she answered all of her questions. Dr. Vilich not only provided Anais with a lot of information and recipe suggestions, she actually empowered her to take charge of her own health.
Soon after implementing the recommended suggestions Anais began to feel better, but the cramps continued to come back. Dr. Vilich, recommended more testing and discovered that in addition to celiac disease Anais was also dealing with a lot of food allergies which were causing the severe reactions. Even though her diet is pretty restricted for a few months, it has actually come as a real relief to her knowing exactly what is going on and what she needs to do to heal. After two weeks the cramps have finally stopped. Dr. Vilich has been an amazing support to my daughter and thanks to her incredible sensitivity, Anais is now finally starting to regain her health and energy.
I have been thrilled with the care I've received from Dr. Vilich. Before finding Dr. Vilich, ...
Dear Dr. Vilich,
Dear Dr. Fatima,
Dear Dr. Vilich,

Dear Dr. Vilich,
I have been thrilled with the care I've received from Dr. Vilich. Before finding Dr. Vilich, I'd endured two years of relentless fatigue and overall declining health. I was finally diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder, but was told there was nothing that could be done to ease my symptoms. It was a challenging position to be in as a young woman with a family who needed me to be well and energetic. As a last ditch effort, I decided to try an alternate route, a functional health doctor. It has proven to be one of the best decisions I've ever made. Dr. Vilich really took her time with me and seemed to take everything I said seriously. She's been very thorough as far as gathering information through lab testing, but hasn't relied on labs only and has been willing to treat and advise based on how I feel. Previously I'd been treated based exclusively on where my lab values fell within the standard range, so this approach has been revelatory. Within two weeks of implementing the plan we developed at my initial appointment, I felt better than I had felt in years. I had more energy, was waking rested, and relentless gastro symptoms I'd suffered since being a teenager almost completely resolved. I still have a long road ahead, but I no longer feel worried or scared because I see with Dr. Vilich that I CAN live a normal and full life and feel great. Feel free to cut that down as needed. I'm sure it's longer than necessary, but I wanted to give a clear picture. As far as scheduling a follow up, I can do any Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday between 10am and 2pm. If we scheduled the last week of August or later, I think my lab results would for sure have made it took you by then. Just let me know what works. Thanks so much!

I had severe diarrhea, lost 20 percent of my body weight and had only 5 percent of my energy. I was sleeping 16 hours a day and still had severe fatigue. I could not leave the house and I was desperate. I thought I was going to die and someone would find me in my bed. I had no answers for 20 years with my regular doctors.

From my first appointment with Dr. Vilich, I felt that my health was a collaborative effort. She really listened to my symptoms and ran tests that my health issues stemmed from histamine and SIBO. She prescribed a treatment plan that included: diet, supplements and prescription drugs only when necessary, an approach so different from every other physician I've had. And her treatment is working, and I have made vast improvements as a result!

I started seeing Dr. Fatima Vilich because I was having some chronic health problems related to my digestion, hormones and anxiety that, in my opinion, were not being helped or treated by my regular physicians properly. I felt that my regular physicians were given poor advice pertaining to my health, that I was not comfortable with and that was not acceptable to me. These doctors were not really listening to me, they were merely treating my symptoms rather than trying to help me find the greater problem. I was referred to Dr. Vilich by a family member, after hearing my frustrations. Dr. Vilich listened to all of my concerns and agreed that they were all valid. She sought to try and find the root of my health problems through tests and provided me the tools to help treat them with diet, sleep, vitamins, and additional supplements. One of her best pieces of advise was getting off of the birth control. I had no idea how negatively it was impacting my health. She was all about cleansing the system and repairing the gut, through natural means. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Fatima if you are experiencing chronic health problems and are not satisfied with your regular physicians recommended treatments. I am so much better, and am still noticing improvements so I plan to continue doing what she recommended for me and hope to continue moving in a positive direction.
I just wanted ot sincerely thank you for guiding me in the right path. After months of annoying symptoms of laryngopharygeal reflux and small bowel bacterial overgrowth, I am now finally symptom free. I also Think our preventative plan is on the right track since it's been 2 months since treatment.

Dr. Vilich has guided me into a whole new level of healing and health.

"Dr. Vilich is determined and devoted to finding the cause of diseases and illness that are becoming more prevalent in today's society. With her combined training in traditional medicine as well as Functional Medicine, Dr. Vilich is equipped to investigate and provide answers where there are none according to traditional medical practice. In addition to her wide scope of knowledge, she has an incredible ability to relate to patients ages 1-100+, and every patient walks out of her office with hope, and a plan to a healthier, disease free life.
What a privilege it was for me to spend some time with Dr Vilich this past month doing elective rotation in her office. I am so grateful for such a wonderful opportunity. I am now feeling refreshed and excited about the field of medicine again. "
I LOVE My doctor!I am 63 years old and have been searching for a physician with the qualities that Fatima Villich possesses for over 30 years! I feel so blessed to have finally found a doctor who listens to what I have to say about the struggles I have with my health. When I was in my 30's, I was on 20+ medications, many prescribed for side effects I was having from the medications I was on. Tho I have only been a patient of Dr. Villich for 6 months, she has done more to improve my overall health than any Doctor I have seen in 30 years. I thought I had a clean diet but she has helped me tweak it to improve digestion. She has ordered tests I've never had and educates me each time I see her. I realize that I improve with each appointment and know that I have found someone who cares about my health. Dr Fatima and I are a team and I couldn't be more grateful!

Dr. Vilich has transformed our lives! My husband, age 73, and I, age 65, have been seeing Dr. Vilich for ten months. Both of us have lost 50 pounds each and are still losing. We have much more energy and feel the best we have felt in years! In fact, my husband had given up golf due to pain from past knee and shoulder surgeries as well as foot pain from a "dropped" toe. After working with Dr. Vilich, he tried golf again and is pain-free so has re-joined his golf club. As for me, I had years of arm, wrist, and hand pain and numbness and was seriously considering carpel tunnel surgery. Thank goodness that I waited... I am completely pain free now and the numbness is gone, too!
Dr. Vilich is truly concerned about her patients, and we continue to benefit from her expertise and caring style.
About our journey... Last summer my wife Marcia was told by her internist that she would have to begin taking medication to control her developing diabetes, as her then recent A1C was over the 6.0 limit. She was a wreck emotionally after that visit. She was already on cholesterol medicine, two heart medications and an antibiotic for rosacea. She was without hope as we were eating mostly organic foods then and didn't eat fast foods at all. She was confused and fearful.
After listening to her sob for some time I said that we two were smart enough to find a way to limit her taking the diabetes medicine. That was the end of July. By August she had purchased The Blood Sugar Solution by Dr. Mark Hyman. After Marcia read the book... then and there we dropped sugar and wheat from our diet. Then after about two months we learned about a group of Functional Medicine Doctors who were certified to practice many of Dr. Hyman's approaches. https://www.functionalmedicine.org/about/whatisfm/ There are only about 200 of these certified doctors in the world and when we looked there were only two in Illinois. We went to see Dr. Fatima Vilich, MD in Glenview. (http://vibrant-health.info/ )
The premise of the functional doctor's approach is this... they look at the body in totality--with all the markers and test results, so to reach a conclusion of what needs to be fixed in your health practices and/or diet. They believe that food can be a medicine to heal you or a poison which will ultimately make you ill or even kill you.
Funny thing is that as we have worked with this program to "heal" ourselves we feel better, are stronger, with more endurance and energy. I remember well in our first 4-hr visit back in October with Dr. Vilich; she asked us to remember back to the last time we felt good! What a question. Marcia said it was when she was in her late 40s before perimenopause. I said in my late 40s too. I think we are nearing that "feeling" state once again.
So what results have we seen so far?
o Marcia has lost about 50 lbs.
o She had tried many diets and exercise programs to lose weight with little to show. Then Dr. Vilich discovered she had a Thyroid problem that was only discovered by taking two different thyroid tests which her internist doctor never ran. The internist only ran the standard Thyroid test which showed Marcia to be within range.
o She is off Cholesterol medicine
o She has avoided taking diabetes medicine
o She is off one of her two heart medications... and soon will drop the last one too
o She is off the antibiotic.
I also lost 50lbs. I regained my energy and was able to rejoin my golf club and start golfing again.
I think if we had gone on this earlier in my life the cancer and surgeries may well have been avoided.

Hi Dr. Vilich, Dont know if you remember me or not but I saw you about 1.5 years ago regarding Functional Medicine and Rheumatoid Arthritis. I only saw you twice but wanted to let you know where this disease process is at now.
