Mirthe is passionate about facilitating the best possible version of yourself. Having travelled the world with elite athletes like the Olympic Winter Team and Worldtour Surfers, high profile executives in the business world, and being the auntie and friend to adorable children and people, she thrives to help each walk of life achieve their individual optimum.
Confronted with the debilitating symptoms of the autoimmune disease Crohn’s early on it life, followed by an early burnout and hormonal imbalances, she embarked on the search for alternative methods to get better from a young age. Growing up in a family where yoga, meditation, herbal medicine and organic foods were the norm, she started to practice these as a means to help her symptoms, involving a lot of trial and error. However it was only after completion of her Bachelor of Health Science degree at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands that she had the tools to properly dive into the scientific literature, and within months of applying the evidence based strategies found, her illness completely cleared up. This lead to a post-graduate degree in Functional Medicine at Functional Medicine University and continued education including cutting-edge fields such as epigenetics and nutrigenomics, with the strong desire to help people achieve their personal best, and lead a happy, healthy and pain free life. She is currently furthering her knowledge as a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine, always striving to find the best solutions and newest research for her patients.
Some of her specific areas of interest include genetic diet & lifestyle assessments, which allow to determine genetic weaknesses and how to bypass and strengthen these with ‘epigenetic’ factors (diet, lifestyle and environment), female hormone balancing such as in cases of PMS, infertility, endometriosis, preparing mothers for a healthy and optimal conception and pregnancy, brain neurotransmitter support such as in anxiety, ADHD, dyslexia or ‘burnout’, gut and autoimmune issues, and 'anti-ageing'. She views 'anti-ageing' as a means to not only slow or prevent the onset of degenerative conditions by running 'predictive biomarker testing', but also to optimize health as to thrive and enjoy the highest quality of life with physical and mental performance and wellbeing.
