Clarice (age 82):   “For many years the base of my thumb(s) has been swollen from arthritis. Each year it has worsened. When Vivix came out I was skeptical, but I had so much pain in my thumb that I was willing to try anything. After on Vivix only three days I was absolutely amazed. I live with my daughter and I couldn’t wait to show her my thumbs. We stared together, in absolute awe, as the swelling was gone – and the pain was substantially less! 

I also had hip pain. That didn’t go away quite as quickly. The pain was so terrible that walking more than 20 steps at a time was prohibitive. Yet within two weeks of being on Vivix it began to improve. And now, after about six weeks, I have very little hip pain at all. I can do something I haven’t been able to do for a long time – take my dog for a walk all the way around the block. This would be enough to keep me on my Vivix, but I have noticed another wonderful thing has happened.

I have Reynaud’s Syndrome. This is a condition in which the smallest arteries that bring blood to the fingers or toes constrict (go into spasm). One of the triggers, and the one that affects me, is the cold. Even entering a cold grocery store can cause my fingers to go white, or even turn blue. It is very uncomfortable and often I have to wear gloves where other people wouldn’t. Wintertime is always a concern for me. Not so this year! Not only have I needed gloves incredibly less often than usual, BUT I have had no episodes of my fingers turning white. I can only attribute it to Vivix, and it is wonderful!”  (
