Vivien: Healer, Teacher and Listener

Vivien: where do we start? She comes from a long line of woman healers and herbalists and she is always looking for ways to help people get an insight into their lives in a positive way. Here at Simply Healing it is founder Vivien who is the driving force and inspiration behind the ethos of our holistic and natural approach to health and wellbeing. She has been working as a healer and teacher for many years and her gifts have taken her to many countries to gain and unfold the wisdom and knowledge of the healing arts. She uses gifts given to her at birth and those learned along the way to help her fellow man and woman. She also escorts travellers on spiritual journeys and helps them to unfold their own inner strengths.

In Vivien’s own words:
“My interest in detoxing began in 1985 when I found a book about Candida Albicans. As I read it all made sense to me; my body was so toxic that it could not heal. Headaches, aching joints, bloating, fatigue, the list went on. So I tried to cut out certain foods to establish what was the cause of my ailments. I had a little improvement but it was not really working so a girlfriend suggested to go and see Maggie in the USA. Off I went to San Diego in California for a month long juice-only detox. I found so many answers to so many issues there and the rest, as they say, is for another story. I stayed for three months and tried several detox programmes, some good and some not so good. Maggie and I worked out a programme between us which we then tested on ourselves and friends as guinea pigs.

We have from that time tried many other options but always came back to the original programme - because it works! Fresh juice, herbal supplements, colonic hydrotherapy, massages and tender loving care. Lots of water and gently does it. Five days later you are ready to make changes, to stay clean and full of energy.

Yes, you can do it !”
