About Len De Nys
Experience and expertise
Healthy Ageing education
I want to create awareness about the science of targeted diet- and lifestyle interventions to increase healthspan. That is why I founded the 'House of Lifestyle', a place for education and consultancy for healthy ageing and longevity. I'm always in for a talk or a lecture about diet-and lifestyle strategies for health and well-being.
Through personal and clinical experiences, I discovered the effectiveness of healthy lifestyle strategies in tackling chronic health conditions. Through my in-depth knowledge and passion about the science of Lifestyle Medicine, I hope to inspire professionals and patients on their health journey.
I have a Master's in Rehabilitation Sciences and Physiotherapy and conducting a PhD study about Stress, Healthy Ageing en Physical Exercise at the University of Stirling of Scotland. My clinical expertise is in stress and sleep management and auto-immune conditions.
Get in touch.
I love to share my ideas, knowledge and experience with health professionals! I aim to translate the latest relevant science in the healthy ageing field directly into clinical practice.
