Naturopathy

Naturopathy

The essence of Naturopathy is that every body has the innate wisdom to heal itself. We call this the self-healing mechanism, shown in the way wounds heal automatically and fevers fight infection. This incredible regenerative ability is not only visible in us, but in all of Nature.

In a similar way, when our body is out of balance, dis-ease and complaints may occur. The state of our internal terrain matters. This is why one person gets sick when in contact with germs and another, who has had the exact same contact, does not.

 

As a Naturopath it is my mission and priority to help you align with (your) Nature, aid and inspire this unique process of regeneration, help optimalize the state of your bodily terrain and facilitate a multi-leveled and sovereign way of healing and wellbeing.

 

In Naturopathy sovereignty is of utmost importance. It can be incredibly self-empowering to learn you are your own healer and all you need to get back to balance is inside. A Naturopath simply helps uncover, clarify, guide and ignite. Sometimes you need some external intervention (through conversation and realization, nutritional adjustment, acupuncture etc) to create the spark that will ignite your internal process towards harmony and healing.

As a Naturopath I treat each person as a unique individual by addressing all aspects of life: the physical, the emotional, the spiritual, the environmental, the lifestyle and the attitudinal. By doing this we can together uncover and treat the root cause of your health challenge.

WHAT CAN I, AS A NATUROPATH, DO YOU FOR YOU?

On top of inspiring you through my books, e-books, programs, events and workshops I also provide individual Naturopathic consultations in Dutch or English. These consultations are typically done remotely, as an e-consultation via (AVG/GDPR) secure videocalls. This allows for us to connect where ever we are. If you prefer a face-to-face consultation, these are available upon request near Utrecht, The Netherlands. Want to know more about me and my background?

Single consultation

On top of these programs you can also request a single consultation, during which we focus on your unique nutritional and/or health challenge.

I can help you get clarity regarding the roots of your nutritional or health challenge.

We can, together, find ways to restore physical, mental or spiritual balance and wellbeing.

We do this by addressing the root of your challenge or dis-ease and by igniting the self-healing mechanism.

I will give you a practical (treatment) plan to restore equilibrium through concrete and daily actions.

As a Naturopath I support you as an Autonomous Being, with the innate power to self-heal and in full charge of your own health and healing.

 

The naturopathic treatments I typically use are: nutritional, movement, breath and lifestyle adjustments, botanical medicine and therapeutic interviewing. All of these treatments work well in remote consultation settings.
