About the Author

Shelly Borsits' nightmare began at the end of 1996, at the age of 25. Almost overnight her seemingly healthy body became ravaged with unexplainable pain. Over the next 5 1/2 years she would turn to several doctors and specialists for help in finding the cause of her chronic, and debilitating pain. X-rays, MRI's, CAT scans and blood tests showed there was nothing wrong. But there was something wrong.

Something was dreadfully wrong. Eventually Shelly was told by one doctor that he believed she had Fibromyalgia and told her to go to the internet to read up on the incurable disease he had diagnosed her with. While searching for information on Fibromyalgia she came across a woman's story that was so similar to her own it was if she had wrote the story herself. Besides their symptoms being identical, they also had one other thing in common. Before they had fallen ill they had both taken the same birth control injections. Shelly put her own story online to see if other women who were on these same birth control injections were suffering from this same mysterious illness. To her surprise, and horror, emails started flooding in from women all around the world. Women were begging her to put up web pages so they could tell their stories too. She started the not for profit web site Antique & Vintage Costume Jewelry. From that point on she continued to bounce from doctor to doctor to no avail. The prescription drugs and surgery she underwent did nothing for her but multiply her health problems. Instead of getting better, she was getting worse. She turned her back on conventional medicine and started looking for alternative methods to cure her so-called 'incurable disease'. Placqued with daily migraines, sinus and yeast infections, severe and debilitating muscle tightness and pain, insomnia, bloating, weight gain, hormonal imbalances, and a long list of other equally severe symptoms, she knew she had to find a cure or else. Her life was so riddled with pain that she didn't want to continue living in the condition she was in. She was merely existing, not living. Unfortunately her turn to the alternative field was, at first, as equally disappointing as was her results with conventional medicine. Eventually she got on the right path. She learned the secret to the cause and cure of disease. Without drugs, without homeopathic remedies, without any potions or pills, she cured herself from the pain that had destroyed her body. Shelly is now sharing the information that saved her life with the rest of the world. Shelly has put her information online and in greater detail in her book Dying To Get Well: RX Drugs & Surgery FAILED! Raw Food, Juicing & Fasting CURED My Disease.

Shelly teaches the truth about reversing disease and creating vibrant health in a clear, easy to understand manner. What could be simpler than healing by removing the causes of disease? This is not a crazy, radical plan. It makes good common sense. Give the body what it needs to be healthy and health is the result. It really is that simple. Highly recommended!

When I read Dying to Get Well, I was struck by the genuine tone of the book. The author is not attempting to "sell" anything to her readers.However,she is offering a wealth of information on taking ones health into ones own hands.
The positive tone of the book, and the emphasis on living, or raw foods being a primary key to health, is so valuable to any reader seeking a wholistic approach to their health. While detailed "instuctions" for renewed health are provided, they are offered in such a way that the reader can follow their own instincts while applying them.

The minimal price of this book could save you thousands of dollars in the future! The author, Keck-Borsits, gives the reader an alternative to throwing more money away on pills that don't work, on surgeries that leave you maimed, on doctors, potions, and lotions.
The real life stories and evidence speak volumes to this reader. If you or someone you know is suffering give this book a chance. This book contains practical advice on how to change your life through eating raw organic plant foods as well as by incorporating other principles of natural hygiene. The author emphasizes how important it is to listen to your own body and make changes you are comfortable with. I was truly educated by this book and moved by the author sharing her experience.

By A Customer on December 3, 2003
Chronic illness, pain without relief and the resulting depression from failed efforts to get well which leaves one in a state of hopelessness, is no laughing matter. Shelly addresses a great many of the issues which a health seeker hungers to learn about, and she does it with care, concern for the reader and a desire to share her own success with others that, they too, may find their own answers. Shelly's empathetic heart and encouraging nature shines through in every chapter as she gently encourages the reader to explore natural and healthy alternatives for themselves by taking an active role in their own healing journey. Candidly sharing her own traumatic journey from illness to vibrant health, Shelly draws the reader to look at the raw facts and judge for themselves what the answers are for their own medical crisis. I would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to explore a natural, alternative healing approach to finding more radiant health.

I read this book last year and it made an impact on me. Someone suggested I re-read it and I'm catching everything I didn't pay attention to last time. I've been in pain for 6 years with fibromyalgia. Medication has a place for some people but for me it just doesn't work. If you begin to understand disease really isn't as complicated as it's made out to be then you can begin to heal yourself.
