Health Consultations

Health Consultations for Dogs & Cats

Comprehensive health assessments are available for those pets who are challenged by chronic or complex health conditions. The work-ups are performed by Marijke van de Water, B.Sc., DHMS. Through using a unique technique of kinesiology, known as The Marijke Method™, she is able to evaluate health status and identify the underlying problems which are causing symptoms and health conditions. These problems may vary from food allergies/ intolerances in the diet to nutritional deficiencies to poor organ function and/or to emotional problems. Once the issues have been identified they are then corrected with a personal health program using diet, nutrition, herbs, homeopathy and intuitive communications.

The following health conditions are commonly addressed:

  • Allergies
  • Skin Conditions
  • Digestive Conditions
  • Parasite Programs
  • Immune Disorders
  • Respiratory Problems
  • Arthritis
  • Hormone Imbalances
  • Behaviour Problems


What is The Marijke Method™?

The Marijke Method™ was developed from her practice of over twenty years working on animals and people. The Marijke Method™ is a method of energy testing (kinesiology) that works by “testing” the electromagnetic energy field around organs, body systems, foods, nutrients and remedies. Kinesiology enables the practitioner to “track” the body systems and many of its functions – it identifies blocked energy fields, pinpoints specific problems and assesses the underlying cause. Kinesiology can be performed in the physical presence of an animal or at a distance, known as remote testing. Remote testing is possible because all imbalances present themselves in the electromagnetic field, a field which is beyond space and time. Electromagnetic fields surround every part of the body including connective tissue, blood, the nervous system, the immune system and all other body organs. This field is a fundamental force of nature and is a unique “fingerprint” for every animal and every person.

For more information on kinesiology and healing see her book or video: “Healing People: The Marijke Method”

How To Schedule a Consultation:

To schedule a consultation please fill out the intake form and return to the Riva’s office by fax, mail or email. Include 2 pictures of your pet– one portrait picture and one complete body picture.

Work-ups are done on a first-come, first-serve basis although urgent cases will be given priority. Upon completion and before invoicing you will receive a written report from Marijke detailing the diet and nutrition program, remedy and supplement program, any recommended lifestyle changes, as well as any “words of wisdom” that your pet would like you to know.

*Please note that we make every effort to support our health programs by answering questions, addressing concerns and making adjustments where required for the first 60 days after the consultation. After this time, there are usually too many shifts and changes to the body and to the general health, lives and lifestyles for us to give effective advice based on the original situation. To maximize results we therefore recommend arranging for a new consultation.
