What readers say:

“Hi Marijke – Just wanted to thank you for the book Healing People: The Marijke Method. I’m on page 55 and after I have read to the end, I will read it again. The information is great and so easy to understand. Thanks Again”

“I wanted to tell you that after seeing you for the second time my triglycerides went down, my liver function is better and my neuritis disappeared – none of which the doctors were having any success with.”

“It’s amazing how in just a few minutes Marijke knows where the problem is. It’s like magic.”


This is the book I said I would never write. Life as a healer had taken me in many different career directions – teaching seminars, facilitating retreats, formulating products, writing my first book, writing articles for various publications, and maintaining my healing practice. I had no idea how I was going to stop the world to write another book. Patients, clients, customers and friends alike frequently asked if this book would ever be written – especially after I just published a successful book on equine nutrition and natural healing. “Healing Horses Their Way” was first published in 2008 and followed by a second edition in 2012. Naturally, the expectation was that human nutrition and healing would be my next book project…and so it was…because I had to. I owed it to my people.

I did not, at first, plan to write a book on diet and therapeutic nutrition. What I did feel compelled to do was to write a book on helping people heal with kinesiology – a method of energy testing that uses muscle strength tests to identify health imbalances and to formulate health programs. After over two decades of private practice working with both people and animals, I had developed a unique and specialized method of energy testing for formulating comprehensive and successful health programs for many health conditions. This became known as “The Marijke Method™” and I was eager to empower people to create their own health programs. Writing a book was the only way that I could make this technique available to thousands of people and to anyone who needed it.

The Marijke MethodTM is a simple yet powerful healing technique which bridges the art of kinesiology with the science of nutrition and natural medicine. It is based on knowledge, clinical experience, medical intuition and a passion to heal. It takes the guesswork out of the health equation and replaces it with insight, awareness and strategies for recovery. It is practical and effective and really fun!

However, two chapters into the first draft I realized that I could not effectively teach this method without the reader or student establishing a basic foundation of knowledge in the effects of diet and nutrition on disease. Knowledge and understanding is always the basis for a commitment to permanent change. So there it was – my user-friendly handbook on kinesiology surrendered itself to include extensive information on nutrition and its impact on health and disease.

I started out by making solid statements about nutrition and health, but as the book progressed I discovered that I had a new soapbox from where I could gleefully deliver my passionate and vehement assertion that food not only causes most diseases but is also capable of healing them. I repeatedly refuted the commonly held belief system in mainstream medicine that disease is a random event over which we have no control and that we are helpless victims swallowed up by the giant wheel of modern high-tech medicine.  And I reminded readers that the very diseases that high-tech medicine promises to fix have mostly been caused by the same high-tech world that invented the high-tech medicine in the first place.

This is the book I really, really needed to write. It is my gift to the thousands of people who have entrusted me with their health care over so many years and the many who continue to do so today. It is all of you who are my true teachers. Thank you for reading this healing book on your journey to spectacular health and great wellness…
