A programme developed in a natural environment for seven days as a vaccine against the harmful effects of modern life.

Back to the Origin

Humans have evolved through evolutionary pressures that have shaped our emotional, social, and cognitive intelligence over thousands of years. The need to survive repeated episodes of famine, thirst, extreme heat and cold, violence and infection has led to a series of adaptations that have taken us from strong to intelligent to the point where we can control the environment in which we live.
Today, it is no longer the environment that shapes human adaptations. The loss of evolutionary stress factors makes us more fragile, more passive, less intelligent and less resistant to change. While this gives us many advantages, it also has a significant impact on our health.

In short, modern lifestyles make us more susceptible to disease.

In recent years, there has been a proliferation of research pointing to the intermittent, controlled and scientifically proven reintroduction of the ancestral stimuli inherent to human existence as a safe and effective intervention to restore health and restore human beings to their original resilience.

From the hand of Leo Pruimboom, this is how the concept of “Intermittent Living” was born and is embodied in a very concrete intervention programme in which the participant will experience intermittently (therapeutically) these evolutionary pressure factors to which we are no longer exposed in modern life.

“Intermittent Living” Programme

The Intermittent Living programme takes place over seven days (6 nights) in a privileged natural environment and under the protection of PNI Europe. At all times, it will be directed and supervised by the members of Emovere who, as university specialists in clinical psychoneuroimmunology, have mastered the concept of perfection. In addition, one of our members is certified as a Coach in Intermittent Living and is a member of the International Institute for Intermittent Living.
