Do you have health issues? Do you have lower sex drive, irritability, hair loss, or spotting? Do you try to figure out what can be hidden behind those migranes, endless bloating, fatigue, but even back pain or the inability to lose weight? Is your whole body longing to have a baby but your doctors tells you everything is fine and yet, you cannot get pregnant?

In short, I will give you the tools you need to feel and look your best!
I studied biochemistry, specifically cancer research. I was lucky enough to work at the Cancer Center Amsterdam, VUMC as a research analyst at the department of Pediatric Oncology after moving to the Netherlands in 2006. Later our two sons were born and I was in the middle of a dilemma. I wanted to combine my biochemistry background with my passion for healthy and delicious food. After exploring the educational options in nutrition, I decided that orthomolecular therapist is a great fit for me. It combines biochemistry and nutrition. One of the biggest passions in my life.
I love reading up on the latest studies and incorporating the findings into my practice. Based on that information, I fill myself up on plant based, whole foods. My ideas, thoughts, and practices will reflect this and continually change as I grow as a nutrition expert and learn new research, that’s the beauty of it.
I am a functional medicine practitioner using lab tests to look closely on your hormones, your vitamins or minerals, or your intestines to find the root cause.
Whatever level of support you need, whether it’s recipes, 1-1 coaching where we go step by step through your lifestyle, or just an introduction to the basics, my goal is for you to find a balanced wellbeing here on Leafy Life and find that INNER GODDESS you deserve to feel and to be!
