MIRON, a family business
Four years after its 1995 founding in Switzerland, Miron Violetglass was brought to the attention of the family de Boer. Because of his mother, Eelkje’s long time health issues-which had stumped modern medicine- Evert de Boer began to explore the path of natural medicine. Mother Eelkje was eventually diagnosed with Celiac disease. She was seriously ill, weighing only 40 kilos (88 lbs) at one point. Eelkje’s holistic doctor advised her to move to a Mediterranean country for more contact with the sun. In support of his mother at this critical juncture, Evert sold his retail business and moved with her to the Algarve in Portugal. With the increased exposure to the life-enhancing properties of sunlight, sun enriched foods, and Miron Sun Remedies, Evert's mother step by step regained her vitality. Amazed by these results, and intrigued by the phenomenal violet glass, Evert decided to further investigate the properties of the violet glass.
Together, mother and son began to support what they called The Project Miron. With their funding, Miron Sun Healing Remedies was able to further produce remedies on Cyprus and Mallorca, and to finance new productions of the Miron Violetglass- the only vessel the Sun Healing Remedies could be stored in. Over time, Evert decided to shift his leisure life in Portugal to the challenges of the new start-up company and became more and more involved in The Project Miron. In 2006, Evert became CEO of Miron and started transforming the company with an eye to also maintaining its authenticity. His goal was to spread the fascinating violet glass further around the world. While working at Miron, Evert met Dr. Hugo Niggli a friend of Prof. Fritz Albert Popp who performed pioneering research in biophotonics. These two scientists executed experiments in human cells in order to show biological ultraweak light emission. In collaboration with Dr. Niggli and Prof. Popp and later with Prof. Dr. Roeland and Eduard Van Wijk (father and son), Miron has conducted several tests using analysis with biophotons. In short, a beneficial influence on the biophotonic light quality of products stored in Miron glass was found. In 2012, the familial involvement in Miron grew further when another Evert de Boer, cousin of the initial Evert (whom we now call Evert G.) joined the project as an investor and member of the management team. Subsequently both Evert's moved the company from Switzerland to Hoogeveen (the Netherlands), their hometown. Together, the two Everts share the same goal of changing the world by spreading the message of Violetglass from generation to generation.
