Our story

It started with nature

It started when I was a child, being aware of how beautiful & amazing nature can be & that our body is a miracle we often are not aware of.

During my teenage years I became very sick for many months, due to liver toxicity & gut dysbiosis. My passion at that time, swimming, was put on hold. I was confronted deeply for the first time to realize how important your health is & how you could turn things around if helped & guided properly

Because of the person, whom I proudly call my mentor, I’ve been in a sense forced to see the current modern western medical system differently & kept challenging intuitively & mentally for many years during my studies to become a MSc Biomedical Scientist.

Because of what I experienced, what I’ve seen & what I’ve been told by patients who have been to many doctors and specialist for their illness. I now know what true health is & how you can influence the process of chronic diseases & prevent the majority of late-stage illnesses.

Although I’m certain of knowing enough to help & guide people to better health, the science, treatment modalities, and possibilities seem endless from both western medicine & “alternative medicine”. Waking up every morning as a student makes it possible to think outside the box & become innovative into creating the perfect personalized treatment plan. The best teachers are my most-complex cases. This journey is why I can easily relate and empathize with my patients.

Our Services

Every person is unique, which means that every treatment is also very unique.

Providing proper health services cannot be done with a “one size fits all” type of approach. That is why after a consultation we would get straight into a full spectrum research about your blood levels and more, in order to understand what your body is telling us. After an analysis a diagnosis and a plan of action will be provided along with information about what we have found.

That is why we often recommend to perform proper testing to verify and quantify your Metabolic Health, using minimum to extensive & comprehensive blood, urine, & feces (microbiome)tests.

This will show a snapshot of your current health  and will also aid at monitoring the effectiveness of nutrition & lifestyle changes.

The treatment usually focuses on high quality nutrition & lifestyle interventions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Orthomolecular medicine in the Netherlands is seen by (most) health insurers as a purely additional form of healthcare and is therefore not covered by the basic health insurance. Therefore there are no reimbursement options for orthomolecular medicine under the basic insurance.

If a person wants to be eligible for reimbursement of a orthomolecular medicine consult and/or food supplements, he/she must take out an “additional insurance” (aanvullende verzekering) with a health insurer that recognizes one (or more) of the professional associations, such as in our case MBOG.

“Orthomolecular medicine” describes the practice of treating and preventing disease by providing the body with sufficient (high) doses of nutrients that it considers natural & essential. We know that due to the detriment and poor management of our soils there is a steep decline in nutrients across the world. An additive effect on the latter is the poor nutritional content of (high)processed manufactured food, which contains the macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins and fats) but lack or is depleted from micronutrients. This depletion, chronic malnutrition, is one of the main keys to the underlying causes of chronic disease. On the contrary, food grown closest to nature & in symbiosis with the natural environment contains the optimal nutrient content and structure, which in turn nurtures the body properly.

The eminent two-time Nobel laureate professor Linus Pauling brought to life the word “orthomolecular “, a term used to describe naturally occurring substances, in a particular time & place, that are needed to maintain health and cure diseases.

We follow the latest discoveries in Academic Medicine & Research, but also utilize natural treatments
that have proven effective over the centuries from Ayurveda, TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), and beyond..

We believe that the human body is very intelligent and knows how to self-adjust and repair itself. It consists of approximately 40,000,000,000,000 (trillion) cells, and each of these cells is an extraordinary factory that produces its precious energy, essential enzymes, hormones, and neurotransmitters, all with the goal to support its vital functions. Since your body knows how to repair itself, the only thing you can do is provide it with all the necessary substances and optimal environment.

In terms of acute, life-saving medical and diagnostic procedures, Modern Western Medicine is primary, essential & should NOT be replaced.

However, when it comes to treating chronic diseases such as digestive tract issues (IBS or PDS), arthritis, diabetes, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, and autoimmune diseases, Modern Western Medicine is often helpless in treating the underlying cause. As the saying goes, “no human body is deficient in *name medication*”. This approach often only provides (temporary) symptom relief and/or may slow down the progression of a disease. By suppressing the symptoms, you are only pushing the disease deeper into your body. Sooner or later, it will reemerge with increased force & intensity. Therefore, suppressing your symptoms will never heal you.

The majority of people we treat are chronically diseased patients with a diagnosis, which often have gone through an extensive & expensive journey through the medical system to find answers and treatments. Treating a chronic disease in this way is often a dead-end and may result in people taking medication(s) for the rest of their lives (with all its consequences). Our goal is to empathize and work with the already obtained data to find out the possible root cause of the diagnosed disease. This is possible by looking at, for example, diagnostic blood-markers in a Metabolic Biocompatible way instead of a “diseased progression”. We use different averages, calculation, and associate diagnostic values more with metabolic processes and nutrients to come to a diagnosis & treatment plan.

Talking about your symptoms during a consultation is important, yet it is often not enough to diagnose someone with a certain disease. Therefore, testing, quantifying, and verifying is essential. This makes it provable and tangible. Moreover, this data will be important throughout the treatment plan. Before or after the 1st consult, we advise to take a broad range of tests through your general practitioner.

However, not all GPs are always willing to cooperate, due to many reasons, and restrictions within the Medical Industrial Complex. A second option is for us to write a scientifically based letter to explain why it is important to test certain values. For writing this letter we charge € 25,- BTW incl. If that is still not enough, we can perform testing through independent laboratories in the Netherlands, Germany, Norway, and the US.

Microbiome, Omega 3 (fatty acids), and Vitamin K2 are currently only available through independent partners.

This all depends on the person’s situation & personal preference. Some people require more attention than others. Some may need several consultations and others may only need 1 or 2. The number of consultations usually amount to 1 or 2 a month. Our aim is to not see the patient or client anymore after they become healthy and empowered with all the right tools & knowledge to live optimal & healthy.  Of course, you are always welcome back for a chat or yearly check-up!

Not necessarily, as a whole-food nutritionally dense diet should theoretically provide most nutrients for optimal health. In most cases this is not possible for many reasons, such as soil depletion and the way agricultural practice became more focused on quantity & yield instead of quality & nutrient density. Moreover, our Modern Western Diet is filled with (highly) processed foods that are abundant in macronutrients (carbohydrate, proteins and fats), but lack micronutrients. And lastly, due to environmental toxins and stress our bodies require more nutrients to balance out these negative influences.

Very simply put, due to this lack of balance, our body expresses itself with symptoms and chronic disease(s). To solve this problem, supplements could play a big role in the treatment of these diseases.
It is not required for you to buy supplements, however if we think that it may aid your recovery, we would highly advice you to do so based on our knowledge and experience in the clinic. We are aware that it can be quite an investment to purchase supplements. The 2 questions we would ask you are, “how much is your health worth? And how much are you willing to invest in your own health?”.

Sometimes clients tend to decide to buy their own supplements at a much cheaper price (and quality) at for example Kruidvat, Action, Etos etc. We highly advice and warn to not do this. As they may be ineffective, cause disruption in the digestive system, and even cause harm in the long term due to their (non-bioavailable) synthetic form. An example is the nutrient Folic acid, which is often prescribed during (pre-)pregnancy. What most people do not know is that there is a synthetic (still inactive) form of this vitamin that still needs to be converted into the effective form 5-MTHFR (sometimes noted by Folate). Many people lack the enzyme (MHTFR gene) to convert the synthetic form into the active form, thus remaining inactive and might even accumulate in the body.

Through testing it is possible to determine the levels of most nutrients, such as vitamin D, B12, B6, magnesium, calcium etc. However, certain nutrients are more difficult and expensive to determine. To solve this problem to some extent, we use indirect markers that are tested through a general practitioner, such as liver enzyme values may provide insight into zinc & protein levels.

No, due to the current situation we adapted to also offer (international) online-consulting. The only downside is that we cannot perform certain examinations and/or notice subtle bodily changes.

We are currently offering this possibility to make it more accessible. The other reason is to evaluate whether we can truly be of service to you. In the future we may change this, as our time may become limited.
