Our Story

As an entrepreneur,  Angie Rahm has been involved in the Natural Health and Nutrition arena both personally and professionally since 2007, and the story for Portage goes back a bit further.

In 1991 Angie brought Subway to Portage, Opening the store on New Pinery. At the time a rather new concept focused on fresh food made your way.  Just over 10 years later, in 2003, Angie again brought something new to Portage by opening the Papa Murphy’s, another new concept bringing you fresh ingredients made your way. As she said at the time, “Well, this is just ‘Subway’ for Pizza”.

In 2007 Angie found her true calling and went back to school to become a Naturopathic  Doctor, focusing on Natural Health solutions to help people “Do Life Better”,  with offices currently in Janesville, Madison & Sun Prairie.

Alas, she felt the call to get back to Portage bringing something that combines her old and new professions.  She wanted to again bring something new to the folks back home who have always treated her so well.

Green Berry Smoothies, does just that.  At Green Berry, we are focused on you.  Our All Natural Smoothies match taste with nutrition.  In a time when our food supply is lacking the daily nutrition we need to live our best lives and in this “new era” when we are more focused on our personal health than ever before, we are bringing you the ingredients, nutrition, and flavors that will enhance you every day.

Come on in and give us a try and enjoy “NEWtrition” with Green Berry Smoothies!

Dr. Angie

As an entrepreneur of restaurants (Subway and Papa Murphy's) getting into Natural Health was never on my radar. It was when in one year my son and best friends both became very sick. My son, Lyme Disease, and my best friend stage 2 breast cancer.

I put on my research cap and went to town day and night trying to figure out solutions for them and realizing an entirely different world of what we are taught health is. Surgery and drugs are all I really knew. Luckily I had friends who were chiropractors and my mom had started to take supplements to help some of her symptoms. So I wasn't completely in the dark.

Through these trying times, I decided to go back to school and study nutrition, natural health, digestive health, and energy modalities to name a few. Then it was suggested I go back to school to become a Naturopathic Doctor. After 3 years I joined forces with some amazing women to open the Hopewell Healing Center. Ideal Self Today now works out of that healing center.

Our services have been dictated by the need of our clients and patients. Digestive and weight issues are the highest priorities, then sleep and thyroid/adrenal problems and then there is cellulite, skin problems, and foggy brain. I specialize in digestive health and weight loss using natural healing modalities. With the over-site of our Medical Director, we were able to bring the i-Lipo and i-Lipo Ultra for fat and cellulite reduction. This is so exciting for me.

I am so blessed to be able to serve people who want to better their health naturally. Too many people jump to the quick fix of medication but that will not solve the underlying problem. You must supplement your diets even if they are good! Our food does not offer the needed nutrients. Don't believe me? Just look around. How many children's hospitals were there in 1980? How many people did you know with cancer in 1980? In 1980 did you know what diabetes was or know anyone who had "it"? Since the 1980s regulation has made it so easy for marketers and drug companies to misinform us. Medications serve a purpose but they are not the cure! Our goal is to support our clients' needs through nutrition, diet, emotional and physical means!

Now at Green Berry Smoothies, I look forward to bringing all of these experiences together under one roof as we bring all-natural, healthy food choices together with educating the public on Health, Fitness, and Nutrition.
