About Merrie Bakker & Pacific Holistic - Vancouver, BC

Merrie BakkerMerrie Bakker, B.Sc, M.Arch, NHP
Merrie Bakker has pursued and practiced holistic health principles and studied preventative health therapies intensely for the past 21 years. She believes passionately that cellular dis-organization, disease and imbalances can be prevented or reversed gently with therapies that include nutrition (and including ortho-molecular medicine concepts where necessary); ontology and emotional healing work (with German New Medicine principles when appropriate) and with modalities such as Emotional Freedom Techniques and NLP and using hands-on-healing such as Reiki and reflexology for those inclined to embrace energy medicine.
Insights from other modalities can fine-tune the underlying emotional issues connected to our physical health challenges. Combined with care, knowledge and monitoring, clients are encouraged to rebuild, re-nourish, detox, and resolve or tweek their lifestyle and above all to stay knowledgeable and not to resort to guesswork or rely on advertorial mis-information or pharmacological dis-information or online nonsense.

Her personal health education has been evolving for the past 22 years, starting with live blood analysis, nutritional education and microscopy studies as a result of her own serious health challenges that were not resolved by standard medical care.
When her late husband saw her intense enthusiasm for these new options and interesting doors that were opening, he bought her a unique, top-of-the-line microscope for live blood analysis. She has practiced microscopy ever since - darkfield, live and peripheral blood analysis.

Her continuing search for quality, holistic knowledge has included European Biological Medicine, North American holistic nutrition, German New Medicine (neither German nor new) and oxidology work. Her teachers were the best:
trained in 1997 - Drs. De Wall and Bradford, San Diego
trained in 1998 - Dr. Maria Gabrielle, Santa Fe
trained in 1999 - Michael Coyle, (the real) NuLife Sciences Inc, Petaluma and with Hulda Clarke, PhD, San Diego
certificated in Applied Nutrition with Alive Academy, 2000, Vancouver
refresher LBA courses in 2007 with Lynne Hinton, Vancouver.

In her youth she completed Lyceum in The Netherlands and then came to study fine arts, science and architecture at UBC in Vancouver, BC and never left.
She founded and edited the hardcopy and online magazine The Healing Journal.
In addition to her nutritional microscopy / blood analysis / oxygen-ozone practice, Merrie teaches Reiki and Reflexology classes; writes health articles; teaches exclusive live blood analysis classes.
Her key-note speaking venues include wellness centres and alternative health gatherings.

One Drop of Blood!


Speaking Honestly - about Health and Eating
I love to talk about this work!
Once you've had a live blood analysis session you'll see how well it lends itself to presentations.
I can address health issues less superficially with the aide of amazing visuals from Live Blood Analysis / Microscopy - so people don't have to listen to a lot of talk and rhetoric, nor a lot of should's and ought to's.
Seeing is Believing!
I can also include a focus on what you or your group needs specifically or speak on the following:

  • short and long term immune support management
  • cholesterol and how that relates to healthy arteries and heart
  • easy improved eating habits including blood sugar fine tuning
  • vegetarian nutritional pitfalls - missing links specifics - smart choices
  • mining your minerals wisely and enjoying the eating process
  • keeping your digestive tract on track (and affiliated disorders) and having fun with it
  • good nutrition on the run / good nutrition done slowly
  • chewing the fat on fats and oils
  • weight loss - is that spare tire fat, stuck lymph or edema?
  • politics at Codex, WHO and Health Canada and our beleagured supplement choices

I'd be thrilled to address your organisation or group!
Please call or text, Merrie Bakker at 604-261-7742 or info@pacificholistic.com for details!


We use a high quality, advanced American Biologics research microscope, so that we can give you a proper preventative, predictive evaluation, revealing an early warning for imbalances in your biochemistry, your pH, your bioenergetic and immune systems so that we can educate and rectify any unhealthiness and tendencies towards illness or disease.

We emphasize early correction and avoidance of a later health crisis. We recommend lifestyle changes, supplementation, possible medical intervention, naturopathic testing and education (so that you can integrate detoxification, rebuilding, emotional clearing and state of the art therapies offered by other professionals) and only when needed. We are driven by the philosophy that focuses on the need to know the origin of an illness or imbalance, rather than to look for a compilation of symptoms, before beginning any rebalancing - an approach towards rational, natural, biological healing.

Special Acknowledgement

Many fine teachers have inspired me to continue with this work when, at times, I really couldn’t see the point.
Sometimes my clients have unwittingly inspired me when they showed what profound changes and shifts they could make. They are a testament to open-minded strength, dedication and resilience to the best they can be... my best teachers!
