Hi I'm Marieke
I'm a Functional Nutritional Therapist Practitioner (FNTP)
I empower women reclaim their health and live their best life by getting to the root cause(s) of their health issues. Every body is unique and requires a tailored approach to finding back into balance.
Working with me entails filling out a detailed intake form, a three to seven day food journal, and a nutritional assessment questionnaire. This information is my starting point and will allow me to analyze which systems are out of balance and what your body needs.
I am available for consultations via phone and video chat.
I love nature, traveling and trying out new recipes. I am always curious to learn new things. I've been passionate about alternative medicine and healthy living for years. I've always found a way to heal myself with food and alternative methods or grandmother remedies. My aversion against chemical drugs must have started in my early childhood when doctors suspected I had arthritis and prescribed so much aspirin and other medication that I refused any food or other intake at one point. It turned out I didn't have arthritis but in exchange I have had to deal with migraines and digestive issues throughout my childhood and up until today.
Ever since I've been eating a whole foods 'diet' and especially enough healthy fats, I rarely get any migraines anymore. After the death of several family members and being caught up myself running in the hamster wheel of the busy corporate world, I came to a point where I realized that a healthy diet can only go so far and also I wanted to do something more useful with my time that would help other people get healthy too.
This is why I signed up to become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner at NTA, to understand all the processes in the human body and how they affect our health and well-being. Beyond food, we need to consider the whole person. I strongly believe that every person is unique and has his or her unique balance based on lifestyle, nutrition, exercise, social life, activities and relaxation. This is what I would like to help you with: Finding your Balance.
I specialize in Nutrition, but also consider all other important factors beyond that.
