"It was individual, care and treatment. Also an education on diet and nutrition and avoidance of sugar which has done so much damage in bringing on inflammation causing painful arthritis. I have abandoned medication as Vivamayr gave me the confidence to believe I could do it myself and for my health just must persevere. Thank you to all the team there."
