Functional Medicine - Treating the Root Cause of Illness
Mariska uses functional medicine to help you find answers to the cause of your illness and the nutritional and biochemical imbalances that may be making you feel ill. Functional medicine is personalized medicine that deals with root cause of disease instead of just treating symptoms.
Mariska will search for underlying triggers that are contributing to your illness through cutting edge lab testing and tailor the intervention to your specific needs as an individual. She may use diet, supplements, brain retraining and lifestyle changes to treat your illness but will seek the most gentle way to help your body restore balance along with the least invasive treatment possible.
She seeks to promote wellness and create hope, health and healing by working with you!
Mariska opened her functional medicine practice, in The Netherlands in 2016 and has moved to Ibiza in 2021 where she now sees clients in person as well as online.
She completed her study at the Natura Foundation school of Orthomolecular medicine according to the PNEI method (Psycho-Neuro-Endocrinology & Immunology) She has learned from many knowledgeable practitioners and doctors in the field of environmental illnesses like mold, mycotoxins, Lyme (&co-infections) and heavy metals. She is especially interested in treating the neurological and psychological symptoms arising from these pathogens and can therefore treat the root of a variety of symptoms that usually go along with that like: Pain, Fatigue, Brain disorders, Gut problems, Mood issues etc.
"Curiosity plays a key role in the work I do. I like to live on the edge of wonder and constantly ask myself: Why people develop chronic symptoms and illness. I try to find a way to solve the problems they have. Not just by only treating the symptoms but by finding the root cause and tackling it together with the client."
