Vibrant Health’s functional medicine aims to keep Park City residents in top condition

Park Record – Marketplace – Dr. Fatima Vilich was beginning to lose hope. She was the director of pediatric cardiac anesthesia at Loyola University Medical Center near Chicago, treating babies that needed heart repair. For weeks at a time, she practically lived at the hospital, catching a few hours of sleep when she could and eating whatever food was available.  The lifestyle eventually took a toll. Vilich said she developed severe back pain. She turned to her colleagues, pain specialists, who gave her epidurals and steroids, but nothing worked.

What Our Patients Say:

A year ago I met with Dr. Vilich to address my concerns with my memory (my mother has Alzheimer’s) and I was experiencing brain fog. I had read Dr. Bredesen’s book The End of Alzheimer’s and was looking for a practitioner who used his protocol.
I was also experiencing digestion problems, weight gain, cold all the time and general fatigue. And what a difference a year has made. Dr. Vilich recommended testing and supplements specific to my problems and life history and one by one each symptom has gotten so much better. I now have energy, losing weight, clear headed and my anxiety over the future is all but gone. Dr. Vilich is great and this has changed my life!
Kathryn B.61
I treated with dozens of doctors over the years trying to find an answer to my digestive issues, fatigue and muscle pain. Through testing conducted by Dr. Vilich, dietary changes and supplements, I am feeling better than I have in many years. The IBS that plagued me my entire life has now resolved. I have energy to work full time and go to the gym after work. I am sleeping well and feeling like life is once again enjoyable. Though the changes have been a lifestyle adjustment, it has been worth the effort.
Anette T.55
Dr. Vilich is the only doctor that truly had the answers that brought me to good health. I feel I have my life back after years of traditional medical doctors not listening and under treating my Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis an autoimmune disease of the thyroid. Through diet, changing my medication to a natural dedicated thyroid medication, and treating all the other underlying things that go along with autoimmune and thyroid malfunctions I got my energy back. She is amazing.
Carol M.60
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.

I just wanted to 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. Konrad B.27
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!
Mary M.45

Dr Vilich’s comprehensive recommendations that involved supplements and anti-inflammatory diet and exercise transformed my life. I regained sleep ,energy , my inner strength and acquired new healthy life style . Thank you for helping me rediscover new me!

Dr. Fatima is a very devoted and compassionate physician who combines traditional medicine with the latest innovative approach, resulting in a truly comprehensive care for her patients. Fatima introduced me to different methods for weight control and management, based on natural balance of nutrients and exercise She evaluated my “weak points” and proposed measures to keep me on track. I have been implementing the changes that she suggested over several years and that led me to live a healthier life and make reasonable choices for my Family.
Alma C.58
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

Over the last 40 years I’ve been diagnosed with multiple auto-immune conditions. Uveitis (age 10), MS (age 20), Ulcerated Colitis (age 25), Thyroid Nodules & Secondary Adrenal insufficiency (age 51) In traditional medicine you need to see a specialist for each condition, and they treat the individual disease normally with medicine that has harsh side effects and long- term consequences. For example, and in my case…5 different doctors. Uveitis; Retinal specialist, treated with steroids, which eventually lead to Glaucoma. I now must take medication for the rest of my life. And, by the way, I also see a Glaucoma specialist. MS; Neurologist, treated with immune suppressing drugs. I discontinued on my own because

Dr Vilich got to the root cause of my illness. Four months prior to seeing her, I was hospitalized with numbness in my left arm and leg that came on suddenly one day. I had all the symptoms of a stroke. I was very weak and could not walk unassisted. I had every possible test done; MRI, CAT SCAN, Blood work, EEG, EKG…they all came back normal. I was discharged from the hospital, with orders for physical therapy, but after 4 months I was not making much progress, I was still very weak, and needed a cane to get around as well as I was unable to drive.I went to all my follow up appointments with the neurologist and my family doctor, nobody knew what to tell me. In fact,

I consider myself a health seeker, always reading and researching about health for myself and my family. I was eating a whole food plant based diet, exercising, living a healthy lifestyle and still, I did not feel great. I carried some extra weight that made me uncomfortable, the pounds would not budge. I had skin issues, felt tired and out of sorts, not ill but certainly not a picture of health, particularly for the effort I put in. I faithfully went to my regular doctor for my annual physical exam and was alway told the same thing…”your blood work is beautiful, see you next year”. It went on like this for 15+ years until a new symptom developed….hair loss. As a woman, that will get your immediate attention. I knew I needed a Functional Medicine doctor that would

Hi Dr. Vilich, Don’t 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. SO many people are quick to complain and those are usually the comments we as caretakers hear. This email is the complete opposite! I just wanted to let you know that I have followed your advice on diet and supplements for

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!
Sue C.63
Dr. Vilich has guided me into a whole new level of healing and health.
Prior to seeing Dr. Vilich, I left 3 other Naturopaths who knew little or nothing about my condition, Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth. I was elated to discover that Dr. Vilich had actually attended the Sibo Symposium, which is an annual event educating people on the condition.
She has helped me not only clear SIBO from my intestines, she has helped me to normalize many other important markers, such as homocysteine, thyroid, etc. I am much healthier than when I started and I am very grateful to Dr. Vilich!!!
She is knowledgeable, responsive, kind and extremely well-credentialed. I wholeheartedly recommend her!
Mary D.60
“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. “
Sabrina M. – Medical Student25
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

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.
When I saw Dr. Vilich she knew the exact path to take to my recovery. She addressed my GI problems and found that I had food sensitivities. She was knowledgeable, super understanding and very compassionate. She led me to health.
Now I am a new person, full of energy, able to go to church again and attend my grandson’s games. I thank God for her. I do not know what I would have done without her. Thank you Dr. Vilich!
Genevieve Y.66
I am so grateful that I have found you. My health has improved dramatically within a couple of months after my first visit with you.
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

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.
Latest update for Beth C. She lost 78 lbs in 5 Months

Thank you so much for all of your support with Anais. I really appreciate it!!
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.
