That is my happy place.

Lifestyle Medicine

Lifestyle medicine is a practical, holistic and personal approach to health that relies on the science of psychology, neurology, immunology and evolution to identify diseases and to treat them using nutrition, physical activity, temperature, thought, and emotion as strategic tools.

This practice is about:

  • understanding how our habits impact our health and
  • adopting habits that work with our body, instead of against it.
  • Less-strained and more efficient systems and
  • more energy.

Many of today’s conventional habits work against our genetic and evolutionary make-up. Whilst societal conditioning leads us to believe that certain habits considered ‘normal’ are good for us, many of these habits, actually wear down our systems. Daily. 

Chronic disease such as cardiovascular disease, metabolic disease, inflammatory disorders, is at epidemic proportions. The evidence linking processed foods and a sedentary lifestyle to these diseases is overwhelming. And yet, these factors are the norm for a very large part of the western population.

If the research shows that the western lifestyle is such a big contributor of our chronic disease epidemic (an infectious agent if you will), isn’t lifestyle the most logical place to start reversing the situation?

Resilire – latijns voor Veerkracht:
Het vermogen om terug te stuiteren of het vermogen om snel te herstellen van moeilijkheden.

Processed foods and a sedentary lifestyle have become the norm for a large part of the population. There is a very significant amount of research linking these lifestyle aspects to chronic disease which is at epidemic proportions and have become ‘common’. If the research shows that the chronic diseases are largely the result of lifestyle, then lifestyle is the most logical place to start reversing ‘lifestyle diseases’. Think about it

Small adjustments can lead to big changes. The key is understanding which adjustments will make a big difference to your overall well-being.

How resilient are you?

How quickly do you recover?

In life, we will encounter turns and bumps that throw us off.  Whether it is a be an incident or a stream of events, the unforeseen is inevitable.

When this goes on for too long, we start feeling depleted and our health cascades negatively in response.

If we can accept this impermanence of state as a given, if only makes sense to strengthen our recovery – our resilience – as this is ia defining factor of our health.

This is the essence of my practice, ‘Resiliendo’: I’ll teach you how to actively practice resilience to improve your health using evidence-based techniques and therapies from the fields of Orthomolecular therapy and Clinical Psycho-Neuro-Immunology.

The smallest adjustment can lead to the biggest change."

For whom?

People often ask what types of conditions drive people to my practice. My best answer is: chronic imbalance and recognition of the need for change.

The key is understanding which adjustment will make the biggest difference.​

People come to me when they:

  • lack energy, when they feel like they are “dragging”
  • experience brain fog or an inability to focus
  • want to understand what is going on in their body,
  • feel unseen and unheard by their regular practitioner,
  • want to know what they can do to restore balance and regain their health.

It usually involves a “chronic” state of imbalance (of varying severity) and unsuccessful atempts to find a sustainable, long-term solution elsewhere.

In essence it is the recognition of the need for change that drives someone to seek help.

What do I mean by “chronically unwell?” 
When imbalance lasts long enough, chronic ‘unwellness’ becomes the state of being. And like any other, a state of being requires a shift to be able to recover.

Bringing some degree of change to that state. This is the goal.

Is this you?
