Feast on your life.
You've been told deprivation equals health. Just cut out gluten, abstain from happy hour, or swap your morning latte for celery juice and - poof -your nasty symptoms will go away.
They haven't. What now?
about viv >
Yes, what you eat matters. But bonding over that perfect pan au chocolat matters to your health, too. A wellness plan that ignores the roles of our relationships, our cultural rituals, and our embodied joy isn't just unsustainable. It's a nonstarter. (The science backs this up)
You're so over diet culture and the fear-mongering that comes with it. And you've definitely outgrown Doctor Google. But your negative symptoms just won't go away. That's where Viv comes in: nutrition strategies that get at the root cause of your symptoms. So you can get back to being a bon vivant.
You're an individual with a unique social context, genetic set, lifestyle habits, and goals. Viv's Functional Nutrition approach considers how this complex biography interacts with your biological systems. It's a challenge to the one-size-fits-all, "just slap another band-aid on it" status quo.
I'm Michelle-Marie, your new call-it-like-I-see-it friend.
I'm a Certified Functional Nutrition Counselor, women's health advocate, and mom. After years of hacking my way through the chronic pain jungle, I was fed up with the deplorable state of women's healthcare. I founded Viv to offer women a framework for lasting wellness.
Pull up a chair!

At age 57 I was experiencing steadily increasing knee pain along with decreasing flexibility. I could not crouch to load the washing machine and instead had to grab the machine and lower myself to my knees, then claw my way back up after. It felt like the beginning of the end of my mobility...
"Viv has lead to life-changing improvements in my joint health."
After a thorough evaluation, Viv outlined a combination of orthotics, supplements, and detailed nutrition advice.
Just 6 months later I’m 90% improved in both strength and flexibility, with numerous unexpected benefits from my improved diet.
I’m beyond thrilled!
"Always kind. Always wise."
