|« Traditional Tibetan Medicine in Holland...||How Paul Buckless balanced his body on the Blood Type Diet! »|
My life started in Maarssen, small authentic Dutch village on the river Vecht, province of Utrecht, in the center of the Netherlands back in 1953. Youngest of 4 children, 2 sisters, 1 brother.
Had one year extra kindergarten because when my 1-year-older-sis went to school, I cried and screamed so much my mom decided to ask permission to let me go as well. Permission was granted! One year later I guided my 'contempories' through their first year. Finished schools with normal speed with a crush for languages, literature and poetry.
Became a secretary at the age of 20 in a pharmaceutical firm. Later I joined a waste-disposal company as executive secretary. For 21 years I worked for the Dutch Federation of Parents Associations for people with a mental handicap. During these years I have learnt to be patient and listen to parents with kids, and their special problems!
In 1999 my restless nature needed another challenge. I found it in food and micronutrition. Bought Peter’s first book in Dutch, reading and 'recognizing' my way of life and joined the Bulletin Board in October 1999. Finished my course on Micronutrition in May 2001.
Met Peter in February 2001 during his Author book tour in Essen, Germany. He invited me to visit his clinic in September 2001. January 2002 I started working for the European importer of NAP Products Stacktheme Ltd., and NAP, with office in Maarssen, Holland. Inquiries from all over the world entered my office through the internet!
In 2003 I was certified as a Fellow of the Institute for Human Individuality (IfHI) under Dr. D'Adamo. In 2005 I took and passed the IfHI Masters Certification.
Since then my life became a rollercoaster..
My personal life changed dramatically in 2005 and in 2006 my employment for Stacktheme Ltd. ended and I had to find another secretarial job next to my parttime practice in Maarssen.
Change became my keyword in life! I experienced that going with the flow was 'highly beneficial' for me.
Since april 2007 when the Dutch Genotype Diet (Leven volgens de Genen) was launched in Holland, I dug into my Teacher's diet and found that (cowmilk) dairy is no diamond food for me. So I combine BTD and GTD as long my body likes it. Here is my website
So there is a lot going on and I blog about all those things that-matter-to-me and hope to share with you, readership and fellowbloggers.
Hope to hear from you!
Cocky, Teacher, type A
I had a look at your website. I was wondering if there is somewhere on it to translate to English. Thanks. :-)
