Together with Jan van der Greef (TNO) I started this project in december 2010. I’ve been suffering from heart problems since 2002.

Being healthy and feeling well is a gift of life. Living in good health requires continuous attention and care. Being ill can often be seen as an invitation to regain the right balance and path.
