Jillian Augey spent most of her life feeling unwell and pushing herself despite constant health concerns. Although constantly suffering from a myriad of symptoms, she completed university and established a career. Throughout these years frequent visits to doctors did not reveal any answers to her health questions, and none of the tests performed could identify the source of her pain, fatigue, cardiac problems, digestive troubles, and later, mobility issues. Even with compassionate and curious doctors, no answers were discovered and Jillian forced herself to continue working and volunteering, until one day her body gave out. Having exhausted all resources, she traveled to the US where it was determined she was suffering from a multitude of vector-bourne illnesses. After years of intensive IV and pharmaceutical treatments, she is now including Traditional Chinese Medicine and natural remedies with success. She has spent much time researching Lyme disease and viable treatment options.
