She is the founder of the “The Healing Foods Method’ – an 14 week online nutrition
program where she works 1-on-1 with clients to turn their health around utilizing a
therapeutic ketogenic diet for healing (keto paleo).
Tracing back to her Italian origins, Vivica is a passionate cook whose love of healing food
has been shared with millions through her blog, “The Nourished Caveman.”
While living in Northern California, pursuing her self-sufficiency dreams and practice of
nutrition, Vivica’s life came to a turning point when she discovered she was pre-diabetic.
The nourishing Paleo foods she had been advocating we evidently not the whole solution
to modern health problems. Fueled by this discovery, Vivica dove into research and found
the ketogenic diet. It was love at the first bite.
Within the first couple of months, her blood glucose levels dropped, she shed excess
weight, her brain fog cleared up and her energy levels skyrocketed. After a year of
successful keto paleo lifestyle Vivica’s own health journey took another turn as she was
now diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and Hypothyroidism. Again she had to rely on her
studies and practical applications to resolve those challenges, and that is how she
became the first holistic nutritionist to successfully utilize a ketogenic approach as the
foundation to endocrine rebalancing.
Vivica’s therapeutic approach to food, lifestyle and supplementation, utilizes the healing
power of foods and mindset, to address the incapacitating symptoms of many lifestyle-
diseases that have plagued our modern lives.
She has made it her mission to help others reclaim their health and quality of life.
Vivica is also the author of 3 cookbooks: “The Ultimate Paleo Cookbook” 2015, together
with 9 other bloggers, and “the big book of Fat Bombs” in 2016. Her latest book: “the
Keto Paleo Kichen” was released in December 2017.
