A journey of hope

Dr. Sandra Piedad Cardona

Atuvera Co- founder

I have been a medical doctor and surgeon since 1992 and a patient since 2001.
For many years, I struggled with constant pain, joint inflammation, muscular contractures, and edema in my body. Going through an illness as a patient was a life-changing experience for me. It was challenging to cope with the physical limitations and the constant frustration that came with it, feeling sad and even depressed sometimes. My illness became the center of my life, which affected me personally and professionally.

I underwent several medical treatments, but they only provided partial relief and didn't restore my health.
After being told by my physician that all available treatments had been tried and there were no other options, my life changed dramatically. However, instead of giving up, I decided to take matters into my own hands and find a solution to my health problems on my own. It was at that moment that I realized that, in addition to a rheumatological disease, I might also have a metabolic disorder, as I noticed that my symptoms would worsen after consuming certain foods. I decided to revisit my nutrition books and studied the relationship between diet and several chronic conditions. My research, experimentation, and personal experience taught me that personalized nutrition was crucial for my improvement.

After making several adjustments to my diet, I began to feel much better and progressively was relieved from the pain and inflammation that had been troubling me. At that point, I decided to take action and share what had worked for me with millions of others who may be in similar situations, as well as those with other chronic health conditions.


I founded Atuvera to provide hope to those who are frustrated with illnesses that can be improved or managed through personalized and proper nutrition.
