In dit artikel koppelen we de belangrijkste leefstijlfactoren aan een transd...

Leefstijlgeneeskunde is de wetenschappelijk onderbouwde toepassing van preventieve en therapeutische leefstijlveranderingen in de gezondheidszorg.

Hippocrates beschouwde leefstijladv...

Wij ontwikkelden een twaalf weken durende, gecombin...

Article
In het huidige tijdsgewricht lijkt er een neiging te bestaan om levensproblemen die nu eenmaal tot het bestaan behoren te psychologiseren of zelfs psychiatrisch te labelen. Zou het bij die levensproblemen gaan om een werkelijk gebrek aan zingeving? Of gaat het om een spraakverwarring, door een gebrek aan eenduidige terminologie met betrekking tot b...

Thesis
