After starting Vivica's program, within the first week, my blood sugars stabilized, in two weeks my blood pressure was back to normal and I'd already lost seven pounds. Vivica has been a true lifeline of support and help throughout the program, and her program is designed to help any person achieve optimal health.

Before I had several relatively mild seizures a day. A few weeks into the program seizures frequency lowered significantly. By the end of the 10 weeks I have had a 70-80% decrease in seizure activity day to day. It helped me sleep significantly better and quickly lose the fat off my body that I was interested in doing away with. Significant positive difference after doing the program.

A HUGE thank you to Vivica for all of her guidance and wisdom with The Healing Foods Method! The picture on the left is our wedding day in 2013 and our heaviest weights. The picture on the right was yesterday back at the same spot we got married.
My husband had gastric bypass later in 2014 and lost 120 lbs but the last 30 lbs were not coming off. I didn't want to undergo surgery after seeing what he went thru & I was transitioning to eating all organic food and getting the toxins out of our home. One day at work in March 2016, I was fed up and knew I had to get this weight off & hopefully get off my heavy dose of anxiety medications. I don't remember exactly what I searched in Google, but Vivica's program and another one were the top results. I emailed both programs, and within 2 hours, I had a response and I knew this was for me because this was going to be a rough journey and I needed someone that would give me lots of attention. After my first phone consultation with Vivica, I knew my life was going to change. By the way, I got an automated response from the other program, that basically said buy these books and figure it out yourself.
The first few days were rough, but after day 4 and I woke up with a lot of energy and not starving, I was beyond excited! Since April, I have lost 54lbs and I have had my dark periods dealing with some issues and going out of keto those two times, I felt SO horrible with fatigue, anxiety, extreme hunger, etc. I had learned my lesson!
I'm not at my goal weight, but I am on my way there. My husband is now doing keto and almost at goal weight. THIS PROGRAM WORKS and I don't feel deprived of any foods like the other diets I have done, I am almost off my anxiety medications and slowly weaning off to be completely off by Spring 2017.
Trust Vivica and her program and get into the best health you can be! My husband and I have dealt with weight issues most of our adult lives, but now we are feeling better than ever, getting to healthy weights, our food bill has gone down considerably, and I think we look better now than ever!
I have more energy throughout the day. I feel more in control of my diet. I have not needed to snack because I am not hungry all of the time. I feel that I am on my way to the level of health I desire. Vivica has helped me to move forward after feeling stuck in my health journey. I am still going and looking forward to even more improvement over the next 10 weeks, as I continue to utilize the tools I have learned throughout this program.
Jessica H. (Week 10 of the Program)
Feeling utterly exhausted and the tired all the time, without a clue to making myself better. After browsing through the Nourished Caveman blog over time, things just started to click. (And the beautiful food photography certainly helped too!)
Did The Program address those challenges?
Absolutely! Speaking to Vivica initially really hit the nail on the head, and at the risk of sounding like a hypochondriac (!), she really got me. Vivica could explain why I felt the way I did, and what I needed to do to fix it. I felt positive from the beginning, as I could see benefits straight away.
How did you feel when you started and how did you feel at the end of the 10 weeks?
As a technically “healthy” person (albeit an overweight one), I felt so awful at the beginning of this program. I couldn’t remember when I had last felt energetic and motivated. By the completion of the 10 weeks, I just feel like a different person. My mindset most of all has changed…probably as I have loads more energy and a positive attitude. My knowledge of food has sky-rocketted!
How are your sleep and energy levels compared to before the program?
Incredible. I can sleep through the night now…and feel refreshed! No more 2pm slump!
Would you recommend this program to somebody with similar challenges as yours?
Without a doubt. It really is life changing
What was your favorite part of the program?
I think I liked the individual approach. Vivica tailored the programme to suit me, and my challenges, and despite our geographical distance, I was able to source and locate what I needed relatively easily. The recipes are great too…and work!!
Brit W. (Upon Program Completion)
Thank you, Vivica! It has been almost two full weeks without any allergy medication and I have no symptoms and breathing so clearly, easily and deeply! So happy to have found you and your program.
S.M.A. (Week 5 of the Program)
You guys, I am so proud of myself. I did awesome with my macros and met them to the "T" and I'm making small to moderate ketones. I have lost 5lbs (some how, I didn't even workout hard this week at all). I skipped 2 days in 1 week. I'm sure most of it was water weight! Either way, success!!!! I will not devalue my success, yay!!!!!
L.W. (Week 2 of the Program)
Went to my diabetes nurse appointment and she was thrilled on my progress (phew! I thought they would give me heck about this diet). Also she was so happy I am down 23 lbs, my sugars are right on target. And apparently my diabetic nurse understands the Ketonic diet and knows how it goes - imagine that !!!! I am thrilled to have more support and they told me that Vivica's program was excellent and they will support me al the way! I am blessed.
B.B. (Week 3 of the Program)
So, I must say...I was afraid. It just sounded yucky, but I did it anyway. Did bullet proof coffee this AM with my scrambled eggs. I used coconut oil and organic hormone free butter plus a packet of stevia. WOW, pleasantly surprised. And full... couldn't eat my two eggs with ground beef and onions. Thanks for pushing me Vivica. I can't wait to start cooking this way for EVERYONE who asks me what the heck I'm doing!
P.W. (Week 1 of the Program)
Just had my weekly call with Vivica. I'm in my second week, and getting organised to start Detox next week. I just have to say how amazing I am feeling already!! Clear skin (and better colour), more energy and down 4kg already. I have a way to go yet, but feeling very positive with the changes so far - thanks Vivica!!
