With Vicky Reeves on Shine Freely


It’s all about sharing life experience’s wisdom as we discuss healing, disease, emotional pain, self-compassion, and the essential work of being human. We talk about integrating painful experiences, discovering authenticity, releasing anger from the body, compassionate parenting, how we can support our loved ones in pain, how psychedelics can support healthy change, and the role of curiosity in the healing process.

About Compassionate Inquiry & coaching – in French

With Clint Paddison


Meet the wonderful and inspiring Clint, a must see on TEDxBondUniversity (Video; 18 minutes). He talks about his experiences battling Rheumatoid Arthritis symptoms, and explains what has worked for him. This kind of strategy is very powerful at improving physical well-being, giving room to work on the root cause with other modalities.
I had the pleasure to be a guest in three episodes of Clint Paddison’s podcast. Clint is Australian, he struggled for years with a very aggressive Rheumatoid Arthritis and when he achieved to be pain free, meds free, he decided to share his findings with anyone who would be interested. Working with him has been a break-through in my health journey.

Prednisone and Rheumatoid Arthritis


The pros and cons in 45 minutes

What you can expect in this podcast

While I consider RA drugs an absolute life savers for many of us, which gives us the room to heal while preserving our mobility, I have a different take on the long term usage of corticosteroids. Dealing with the side effects of those drugs is not easy, the challenge is to keep in mind the long term picture and find the balance regarding what is acceptable. We should never take anything for granted and be in full alert mode without letting it get in our head. With Prednisone I went to the deep understanding in my body and mind that it was dragging me down on all levels, mental and physical. Weaning it off after two years was an enormous challenge; it was hard to accept to take it slow but I am sure it was a big part in my success.

With Wendy Walrabenstein


I had the pleasure to meet Wendy Walrabenstein in my health journey. She was the dietician I turned to when I decided to transition my little family to a plant-based way of eating. Little did I know I was about to meet a dedicated researcher! Of course, we ended up working together. This interview was recorded (2018) as an inspiration for people who want to improve their lifestyle, for example because they have arthritis. In particular, it is used for the program Plants for Joints. Reade, an Amsterdam based clinic specialized in the treatment of rheumatism, is currently investigating the effect of this lifestyle program on patients with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Wendy has a series of video’s on het website where she gives tips and advice on dieting, some of them produced together with Libelle TV. Check out her series here.
