"Sunshower is my best friend"
Manja Schilstra (33) lives together and works as a product manager. An awful tick bite caused a long period of illness. Until 5 years ago, when the Sunshower came into her life. "My partner finds it strange when I say it, but it's really true: the Sunshower is my best friend. He makes me shine, gives me warmth, makes me happy and energetic."
Manja was 16 when she was diagnosed with Lyme disease. "While my peers were out exploring the world, I was living like a vegetable, in bed. All I did was breathe." Luckily, after a year, the antibiotics took effect. Manja picked up her life, passed her secondary-school exams, and got a nice job. Until Lyme got the better of her a second time, after a severe dose of flu, in 2012. Five miserable years in bed followed. "I hurt everywhere, my energy level was below freezing point, I was always cold, and if I walked just three steps, it took me an hour to recover. I thought it would never end. Until Sunshower came into my life."
When Manja read about the positive effects Sunshower had on joints, muscles and the immune system, it was like music to her ears. So she bought a Sunshower - the surface-mounted version, so that she wouldn't have to renovate the bathroom. It has two buttons: one for the infrared rays and one with UVB light. "The infrared rays reduce my pain, drain waste products and enable my muscles, which acidify quickly, to recover and relax. The safe UVB light makes me produce vitamin D, which was especially important in the beginning because I was indoors 24/7 and saw no sunlight."
My best friend
Thanks to Sunshower, the sun is shining again for Manja. "I'm in a positive flow, I feel healthier - I can't remember when I last had a cold - stronger and more energetic. Thanks to Sunshower I can work, run, and play golf again - sport has always been my passion - and live a normal life like everyone else. So it's not so strange that I call it my best friend."
The always good-humoured Manja doesn't need the UVB light to beat winter blues, but the fact that sunlight keeps her looking healthy even in winter is, of course, an added bonus. And yes, that best friend also helps her enjoy a relaxed sleep. And she is only too happy to sleep next to her other best friend again.
