With a great heap of humor and a lot of recognition they have not only attracted new readers but also mature readers who have never picked up a traditional health book before. As a result they have helped spread invaluable knowledge – and a lot of hands on tips – and in the long term changed, and improved, the health status of a lot of people."Cecilia Viklund, publisher Bonnier Fakta
Food Pharmacy is one of the most well known health brands in Sweden, and was founded in 2014 by Lina Nertby Aurell and Mia Clase.
It all started with the losses of one mum, one aunt and one dear friend to cancer. These three strong and vital, deeply loved women who were way too young, all passed away within a year and left them with so many questions. Lina and Mia felt like their future was chained to some sort of health lottery where they could only hope that the genes they had been given were not too bad. However shortly after, their paths crossed with that of an 85 year old professor who had spent almost an entire life studying what makes us sick. One of the first things he taught them was that we have more power than we might think when it comes to staying healthy and preventing diseases. Suddenly a door to a whole new world opened, and this information was quite simply, mind boggling. They strongly felt an urge to reach out and share this life saving knowledge with ordinary people. The meeting with the professor was the start of a long journey where as a result, over the following years they have had the privilege to meet with and interview a good many, remarkably accomplished experts within the health domain. Today Food Pharmacy is well-known for its blog, podcast, its supplement brand and three bestselling, award winning books translated into 15 languages. Lina and Mia have been guests on Swedish TV, radio, and podcasts numerous times, are frequent lecturers and just recently, moderated a big seminar at the Swedish Parliament on food and health.
Food Pharmacy is eager to take its Scandinavian award winning concept and share it with the world in the fight against the global burden of lifestyle related diseases.
Imagine a classic weight loss diet program. Now, take that program and throw it in the trash. There is no shame-blaming in the world of Food Pharmacy and all body types are welcome. Food Pharmacy call themselves Nutrient Hunters and the primary focus when filling their plates is on what healthy stuff to add rather than what to exclude.
The Food Pharmacy meal plan has all the ingredients needed to pamper your immune system and boost your health. Our meal plan is a three week menu (do you know this is the time it takes to establish a new habit?) of good food that contains everything that the combined research on food and health recommends us to eat more of; legumes, fruits, berries, groats, cabbage, nuts, seeds, vegetables and green leaves. The portions in this meal plan are adapted so that you will be really full. In addition if you normally eat large amounts of fast carbohydrates and sugar, you will hopefully notice how your blood sugar stabilizes.
Welcome on board, this is a really wise decision to make and we dare to promise you that your future self will thank you.
"I recommend Food Pharmacy to everyone. It successfully communicates vital knowledge about nutrition and its correlation with health in a brilliant and easily accessible manner. It invites readers to take responsibility for their health and well-being. While the impact diet has on our health is familiar to many today, not everyone is aware of the facts. Thank you, Food Pharmacy, for contributing to the creation of a healthy and happier world!"Leena Steen, MD GP
