Hello

Hi, I'm Garrit Van Dijk.

I've been bouncing around the Natural Health industry of New Zealand and Canada for over 15 years, but before that I was involved in the Fire Service as a Lieutenant, an educator, and an Arson Investigator. It's the skills I learned as an educator and forensic investigator that has helped me help thousands of clients over the years achieve their health goals through nutrition and natural health practices. 

I have studied under some of the best minds in the field of nutrition, homeopathy, herbology, gemmotherapy, nutritional psychology, and nutritional microscopy (just to name a few), and I bring all this learning and experience to my clients in every session. 

I hope to work with you soon.

My Story

Garrit has been helping guide his clients to a healthier, happier, life since 2008, but his story in natural health began much earlier than that when he was diagnosed with his own life-altering condition. 

"After the medical community failed me time and time again, I sought the help of a Natural Health Specialist who taught me how the body can heal itself when given the right combinations of nutrients and a change of lifestyle. Within a few short months, I felt better than I had ever felt so I sold my business and set out to learn the healing arts to guide others, like me, towards a better life".

Now practicing as a Nutritionist & Nutritional Microscopist, Garrit teaches his clients how they too can live a happy, vibrant, life, without the burdens of disease or illness.

Garrit has a special interest in, and was on the faculty of one of Canada's leading schools of Nutrition lecturing on Nutritional Psychology (now referred to as Nutritional Psychiatry), and has authored the book 'Treating Depression the Natural Way'. Although Garrit classes himself as a 'generalist' in the field of nutrition his areas of specialty include endocrinology (hormones), Neurodivergency (ADHD, ASD, etc.), fertility, and psychology/psychiatry from a biochemical perspective.
