Maria has been living with hypothyroidism for over a decade. A few years ago, her health problems escalated and she was diagnosed with chronic urethritis and Reynolds syndrome. The doctors suggested new and more medicines and various treatments, but nothing helped. Then she took matters into her own hands and ate healthy.
When it was at its worst, Maria was afraid that she would never get well. No doctor seemed to be able to help her get rid of her pain, nor could she explain what was causing her problems. The treatments did not help and Maria did not want to take more medication. Instead, she began to explore natural ways to feel better.
– I found a person who ate healthy from his problems and described his journey in detail. It was the starting shot for my own; I had nothing to lose, so I decided to give it a try. I soon switched to a vegan diet and removed sugar, gluten and flour products. I greatly increased my intake of fruits and vegetables through daily green smoothies. In addition, I added raw materials with high nutrient density that helped to strengthen and heal the body so-called superfoods.
Could greatly reduce its dose
Slowly but surely, the urethritis disappeared and the other results were not long in coming. Today, Maria has no symptoms of her Reynolds and has also been able to reduce the dose of her hypothyroidism medication from 125mcg to 25mcg a day.
– The results made me read even more and then I found a large number of clinical studies on superfoods different effects on the body. Based on this, I put together my own diet plan with several different superfoods. However, it was not so fun to fill the whole pantry with bags of supplements, so I started making my own mixes. Together with her partner Peter, the idea was bornSuperfood & berries.
Launches a new onediet plan
Today it has been just over five months since Peter and Maria launched their first products in Superfood & berries. The product range includes the superfood mixesBerry Beautiful,Detox Deluxe,Hormone Harmony, Health Haven andProtein Power. All have different uses and contain no additives whatsoever, whether sugar or flavors and colors.
– Many people are used to protein powders and powerbars that are full of sweeteners and taste like a dessert; our mixes do not. Instead, they have a fresh, natural taste, which may be a little above at first but which one quickly learns to appreciate. To make the transition easier, we have a great onerecipe blog, With everything fromhealthy smoothiesandmumsiga scones tocreamy dressings andsuperfoodglass, which makes it easy to incorporate superfoods into your regular diet. Now we are also launching a five-daydiet planwhich is based on the food I myself ate to get healthy, for others who also want to eat for better health.
Easy way to get fruit and vegetables
Maria emphasizes that superfoods are not a quick fix but that it takes a while before you see results. Already now, however, they have made contact with customers who feel better about adding superfood to their diet.
– A customer, like me, has had problems with the thyroid gland and has told me that she is experiencing a clear improvement. Others have heard of it and reported reduced stomach problems and increased energy. However, it is not just people with health problems who appreciate superfoods, one of our best customers simply wants to get more fruit and vegetables for themselves and their children and sees this as an easy way to do it. In short, it is a natural way to feel good and take care of your health, Maria concludes..
