In July 2017, Viver Health reached a landmark of 35,000 Guides printed
September 14, 2017
When Vicki Barghout, a mother of two and a pharmaceutical executive was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010, she embarked on a mission to find evidence-based information about foods that are medicine to battle her cancer holistically, and complement her traditional medical treatment.
After completing her treatment and being cancer free, Vicki was determined to let other survivors and the public know about her experience and how food choices have an enormous impact on the body’s ability to resist chronic diseases. Her mission turned into a passion for communicating this knowledge to help ALL forms of cancer. That passion became Viver Health, which means “life” or “rebirth,” her nutrition company. Viver Health publishes The Viver Pocket Health Guides, which are packed with tips, infographics and the very best evidence-based information Vicki and Viver Health’s medical team of experts have researched on food as medicine. All research is evidence-based, physician reviewed and approved.

THE DAILY RECORD, MORRISTOWN – In the past five years, Vicki Barghout has done far more than survive breast cancer. The 40-year-old health economist and mother of two, who calls herself a “thriver,” is the driving force behind Viver Health, a two-year-old company that has created two laminated, colorful, 5-by-8 pocket guides—“Reduce Your Risk of Cancer: 5 Simple Steps to Boost Your Health” and “Your Guide to Healthy Eating: 5 Simple Steps to Boost Your Health.” They are chock-full of facts, tips, pictures, and infographics, a distillation of the very best evidence-based, food-as-medicine research on the planet. In January, Viver—the name means “life” or “rebirth”—will launch an app of the same name in app stores. Designed to be a cancer patient’s companion, the app will contain all the food information in the guides as well as other features.

A nationally recognized breast cancer surgeon showcased Viver Health’s reach and influence during her speech to fellow physicians about the prevention of breast cancer from a lifestyle modification perspective. Beth DuPree, MD, FACS, ABIHM, demonstrated the impact of the Viver Guides to clinicians at the American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBrS) annual conference. She is the Vice President at Holy Redeemer Health System and Medical Director of the Breast Health Program in suburban Philadelphia.
In her speech to about 1,500 attendees at the 2015 ASBS conference in Orlando, Florida, Dr. DuPree explained that scientific studies had showed an increased risk of breast cancer recurrence among overweight or obese patients. In contrast, however, lifestyle modifications such as eating fruits and vegetables and exercising regularly were associated with a reduced risk of cancer recurrence or spread.
