Welcome to the place where weeds are turned into medicine!

(Like dandelions!)

This is the health coaching home for Catherine Barnhoorn – certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, creator & author of Mila’s Meals, mama to Mila and… Crone.

Here I will offer 1:1 coaching, group coaching, membership community, masterclasses, online courses, live events and a little shop with all my meal plans, books, and other nourishing goodies & gadgets to support you on your wellness journey!

Sign up to my mailing list to know when new courses & events launch.


I don’t use the word Crone in a New Age-mystical-witchy-spiritualism kind of way.

(Although I lovingly embrace my witchyness.)

I use the word Crone in a physiologically-embodied, for-real-life, post-menopause way!

"Catherine Barnhoorn has been a gift. She has given me so much more than I expected from a health coach. Not only is her advice compassionate and realistic, but she heard me, offering solutions that met my needs. In all areas Catherine is warm, authentic, empathic and generous, initiating a personalised health journey in a safe space for one to explore options and find what resonates and liberates. I would highly recommend Catherine."
