Personalized integrative nutrition & functional medicine healthcare.

Hi, I’m Joanna Heyse.

Born and raised in Belgium, Joanna spent most of her adult life in war zones as a relief aid worker. From a very young age, helping in whatever capacity has always been the focus of her life. Now retired from humanitarian aid work, she dedicates her life to healing people and the world, one bite at a time. She believe it is critical that our pursuit of optimal health and longevity begins with an effort toward a collective rise in consciousness such that we should begin to thrive within nature, holistically, instead of fighting it.

Why Functional Medicine

Functional medicine determines HOW and WHY a disease develops and attempts to restore health by addressing the ROOT CAUSES for each individual. I start by exploring your medical history and symptoms through a slightly different perspective than your conventional doctor.  I organize your health story using the Functional Matrix, and this allows me to identify key areas of dysfunction and imbalance that can be corrected. 


Conventional medicine aims to categorize and label your symptoms as a diagnosis, in order to match it to a prescription or rehabilitative treatment.  Functional medicine goes upstream to look for causes for your problems and diminish inflammatory influences in your body. 


My goal is simple:  improve quality of life, diminish prescription burden, and teach you what you need to do to remain as healthy as possible – the natural way!


The future of healthcare is individualized, holistic treatments that take the human in its bio-individuality into account. Restoring natural biochemical cycles to maintain homeostasis. Ultimately it's about teaching patients how to reconnect to their inner wisdom for longevity.

Start with the microbiome

Dis-ease starts in the gut. That’s why every health protocol considers your microbiome’s health and addresses its imbalances. 

Motivation and Support

Lasting changes require motivation and support.All health protocols are designed to give you the motivation and support you need. 

Personalized healthcare

We are all different, so why should we have a blanket approach to health. Our protocols are designed to look at your bio-individuality and support your unique body. 

Nutritional Expertise

Nutrition is not just what we eat, but everything that we nourish our body with: foods, thoughts, relationships, surroundings, … Integrative Nutrition looks at you as a whole person rather than just at what you eat.
