The isle Ibiza and its inhabitants

Never too late to learn …

Ibiza is a mystery what I am slowly unravelling. Through my analytical thinking, sometimes a nuisance and sometimes a happiness, I want to understand the “why” of all that comes to me. And guess what has surprised me this past year the most?!

In our practice most of the complaints are of two types of complaints …. tired, abdominal distension and burden of intestines is the most common complaint. The other is the general complaint, hay fever or some other allergy. I never have even remotely thought, when I came to Ibiza, that these two complaints were on Ibiza as much as on the mainland….

Ibiza, the island of the possibilities

Ibiza, the island of the possibilities. The island is so small that it always is windy, so there is always clean air. The island had to be not so long ago self sufficient, so there was only agriculture. You can still see that everywhere on the island. You can pick your food in the wild. Sheep are slaughtered and boned in the open air (100 metres away from me), only after they have had a beautiful smoking and skipping life here. In short, I think it is one of a kind place on this planet where you can be super healthy, and still … and still these complaints. …

Ibiza is also the Pine tree Island, and because it is always windy, the flowering season of these trees is pretty stressful for people with a sensitiveness to allergy. And I thought “clean air” … of course that’s right, partially though. No smogg, industry or other evils.

The irritable-bowel syndrome occurs in approximately 2% of the population for-usually between the 15th and 65th year of life-and 3 x more common in women than in mannenBij IBS is the stomach-intestinal wall more susceptible to all kinds of stimuli, including food, medicine and stress, and draws under the influence thereof-usually during the day and rarely at night-often abnormally together (= stomach and/or intestinal spasms). Because of the fact that the sensitivity of the pain receptors in the intestinal wall is bigger than normal, the cramps are extra painful.

IMG_5436This month was heartwarming! All those old clients who did come along. They loved our “project”  and felt welcome by our hospitality. That was the reason over all that we moved to Ibiza. Purely to be able to share, more than being a therapist and  the work that you do. Now we can summarize everything. And share our hospitality, our house and our expertise. Over the years, may I add, we have got a lot of knowledge, and what is the use of this knowledge if you can´t share or propagate.
In the Netherlands this was tricky, then you are extremely limited there by the laws and the weather.y limited.

On Ibiza everything is available. Read more

Past, Present and Future


What a week it was, last week! We have put our best friends on the plane back home, and picked up the work that should have IMG_5259been done earlier. Rob went to Barcelona by boat to fetch the dog of our daughter in Barcelona. She drove with her former friend from London to Barcelona, to meet with Rob in Barcelona. Same day he went back again with dog of course. The fast ferry seems not yet to go to Ibiza from Barcelona. I really believe to have seen that you could reach Ibiza in 2 hours last year ….. weird …
