Emilia de Vries started her career in business, but due to her long-standing chronic Lyme disease, decided to follow the path of healing herself and shifted her focus by studying integrative health, specialising in gut health. She started her private practice in gut health and microbiome testing, but missed the element of incorporating the mind in treating disease in the body. Wanting to bridge this gap, she pursued training in the mind-body connection and positive psychology. Now, she is working with clients worldwide, bridging science, health, and self-development. Aside from being a health therapist and coach, she likes writing and speaking at events.
