It all started with frustration: is one egg a day good or bad for you? Avocado too fattening? What about gluten, are they good or bad? All the conflicting information in magazines and blogs was driving me nuts. So I started my search for 'The Truth'. My first basic training started in the Netherlands at the LOI, out of interest and curiosity only. Also, I wanted to have answers to all the questions I had on health and food. There I was trained in a variety of dietary theories and studied practical lifestyle coaching methods. The training was more extensive and serious than I expected and even before I finalised my training, people started asking me if I could teach them how to live more healthily, which brought me to the idea of actually start working in this field.
In 2014 I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN), based in the USA, where I was trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. This institute teaches cutting-edge programs on personal growth, natural healing, health food, counseling, coaching and psychology. My teachers include Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University's Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willet, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities.
In 2014 I successfully completed the following enrichment courses:
- Nutrition, Health and Lifestyle, Vanderbilt University, USA
- Chemicals and Health, Johns Hopkins University, USA
- Child Nutrition and Cooking, Stanford University, USA
