Mirthe Eckl is the brain behind the Functional Medicine App.
With a primary degree in Health, Mirthe holds a postgraduate certification in Functional Medicine from the Functional Medicine University and has attended extensive further training in epigenetics, nutrigenomics, predictive biomarker testing and a Functional Medicine approach to hormones, anti-ageing, mental health, gut health and more.
Her own diagnosis of the autoimmune condition Crohn’s lead her down a road of “trial and error” in many different areas of treatments from an early age. Eventually, always questioning the status quo, she stumbled upon research to relieve her of the disabling symptoms, and only thereafter discovered the new field of Functional Medicine.
With a stint travelling the world looking after the NZ Olympic Team and surfers on the World Surfing League, she has since made it her mission to dig deeper, always staying on top of the newest research to help individuals live the best possible version of themselves.
It is her ultimate goal to allow individuals to take their health into their own hands, make educated choices, take the guesswork out of it, and thrive.
