Today I’m talking to Tonya Papanikolov on trusting the path, synchronicities, and following her intuition, as she built Rainbo, a functional mushroom business all made in Canada.

About our guest:

Rainbo was created by Tonya Papanikolov, holistic nutritionist, raw food chef, and wellness leader.

In 2017, Tonya created The Well Woman, an education platform to inspire, empower and educate holistic health, nutrition, and healing through food and lifestyle. She continues to coach clients, consult with restaurants, cafes, speaks and hosts wellness workshops, and leads international retreats.

From a young age, Tonya was sure of a few things: her affinity and deep love for all things rainbow and that she was here to help people on earth. Her interest in mushrooms started in her early 20s and continued as she used mycotherapy to heal herself, clients, and through her research into how mushrooms can save people and the world.
Rainbo is inspired by a reverence for nature and its healing properties and a desire to reconnect people back to this innate wisdom.

Mushrooms have the incredible ability to heal and balance the body and mind, and they help heal our environments and ecosystems at the same time.

Key points from this interview:

  • Changing the narrative when it comes to growing mushrooms sustainably and locally
  • Why Tonya chose to grow functional mushrooms in Canada and not China even though it had never been done before
  • Behind the scenes of running a mushroom business
  • Partnering with First Nation elder, Spirit Bear who is of the Sioux Lakota tribe from South Dakota now living in Canada in the Temagami First Nation community to create a handcrafted chaga product
  • The best way to take supplements while respecting your body’s needs
