Jill’s Story

Hi! My name is Jill Durand. I have my RN, BSN degree from Texas Christian University. Prior to having children, I worked at two different hospitals in their pediatric units. The pediatric patients (and their families) that I took care of differed greatly. There were sick infants with RSV, kids recovering from different types of surgeries, and even multiple kids and teens with cancer.  

After having my own children, I started looking at health differently. A lot of my free time was spent either napping or researching ingredients that were in the food my family and I were eating and entering our bodies. My whole outlook on health changed. I started to see chiropractors and natural doctors, in addition to my primary care physician. Eating organically grown foods and grass-fed/pasture raised meats soon became a non-negotiable. Over time, cutting out dairy, gluten, and sugar increased my energy and decreased the amount of migraines I suffered from each month. Healing from the inside out became my passion.

In January of 2021, while on the treadmill, I noticed that I was physically unable to run; I could only walk. Maybe it was just an off day. I wasn’t sure. The next time I tried to run, my legs would not carry me. I made note of it, but didn’t give it too much thought. In February, I went hiking with my husband. Immediately after our hike, I noticed that my thighs were severely cramping off and on. From that day on, every time I moved my legs after resting, they would cramp. I went from doctor to doctor as my symptoms progressively worsened. The pain and cramping moved to every muscle surrounding my long bones. By May, I was barely able to walk or take care of myself. The pain was persistent. My summer was spent going to doctor’s appointments and laying on the couch. I ended up at the Mayo Clinic twice. My final diagnosis was “Inflammatory Myopathy with associated Fasciitis.” That’s a mouthful. Basically, my body was inflamed and no one could figure out why. Only God knows. Medication provided a way out and helped me become functional again. I have weaned off one medication and am in the process of weaning off another. I was originally told that I would be on this last medication “indefinitely.” 

In August of 2021, my naturopath introduced me to a new machine in his office called the BioCharger. The more I used it, the better I felt. Unfortunately, using this machine every two to three months was not enough if I wanted to get off my medication and heal from this inflammatory process. Prior to purchasing the BioCharger, I tried weaning down on my medication and had to go back to my original dose the next time I took it. After using the BioCharger consistently for seven weeks, I was able to come down on my medication and stay down. Weaning off this medication is definitely a slow process, but there is hope for me. There is hope for you as well. All praise be to God!

As for my personal life, my wonderful husband and I married in 2000. We have three amazing children who have quickly become teenagers. Our daughter is 19 and our identical twin boys are 16. 

When I am not BioCharging or taking care of my family, I like to spend time with my family and friends, go to my Bible study, go for walks outside, and help out at my kids’ school. 

Like I mentioned earlier, there is hope for you even when you feel like all hope is lost. 

Life can be challenging, but if you give the BioCharger a try, you too might have your own testimony to share. God bless you!

UPDATE: Approximately five months after this was written, I was able to wean completely off all medication. As I write this now, another five months later, I remain medication free and am back to exercising multiple times per week. I am so thankful!
