1980 – Worldwide recognition
In 1980, Maria Treben published the book “Health from the Pharmacy” based on her personal experiences. Treben fell ill with abdominal typhus and was given a bottle filled with a strong smelling liquid from a stranger. She made a compress with the liquid and applied it to her stomach, regaining her health as a result. As a result of this experience, she made her own mixture of Swedish bitters and decided to help the general public. For example, she treated a young woman for pneumonia, restored a woman’s hearing and provided relief to a man’s intestinal cancer.
