Tero is the founder of Four Sigmatic, a nature-centric Finnish-American company specializing in functional mushrooms, superfoods, and adaptogens. Born in Finland to an agronomist father and nursing teacher mother, Tero was the 13th generation to grew up on Isokauppila farm. There, he foraged for mushrooms and other wild foods while learning about nature at an early age. In this, he frequently channeled his middle name Tapio, the Finnish god of forests, animals, and mystics. Following his early education on the farm, Tero later completed a Degree in Chemistry and a Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition from Cornell University. In 2006, he won a Finnish innovation award for discovering that the sought-after Japanese culinary matsutake mushrooms also grow in Finland. In 2012, he left a corporate position to start Four Sigmatic. Tero is a reputable source on superfoods, an expert on natural health and has been a featured speaker for example at Summit Series, Wanderlust, Further Future, Culinary Nutrition Conference, and WME-IMG. Tero was also chosen as one of the world's TOP 50 Food Activists by the Academy of Culinary Nutrition. "Healing Adaptogens: The Definitive Guide to Using Super Herbs and Mushrooms for Your Body's Restoration, Defense, and Performance" is Tero's 3rd book, co-authored with Registered Herbalist, Danielle Ryan Broida. He has also written "Santa Sold Shrooms" and "Healing Mushrooms: A Practical and Culinary Guide to Using Mushrooms for Whole Body Health." Tero has lived in eight countries on three continents. He has a strong personal interest in health and wellness, which includes activities like making raw chocolate and practicing yin yoga. He has also recently taken up a unique practice of napping on a nail mat, which is a modern form of acupressure and helps to energize his busy life.Read more Read less
