Are We A Good Fit? - Wendy Urwin Nutrition

Are We

A Good Fit?

We seek to build a collaborative partnership with our clients so we encourage you to book a free discovery call, to find out if we are a good fit.

What Makes Us Different

Are you dealing with chronic health problems? Do you feel like you’ve tried everything? Are you tired of seeing doctors and being told your tests are fine and there’s nothing wrong?

We see this all the time – clients like you with chronic, unresponsive health complaints and who have had numerous tests and are not getting the answers as to why they aren’t feeling right or what to do about it. 

When you experience changes in health, it is important you always engage with your GP to ensure there are no serious issues which require medical intervention. Most people are given the all-clear but then where do you go?

Healing is possible when you partner with nutrition practitioner who asks the right questions, takes the time to listen carefully and finally gets to the root of your problems but beware, the internet is awash with conflicting and inaccurate advice from untrained nutrition ‘specialists’ selling off-the-shelf programs driven by commercial gain and not tailored to your individual need

Why Partner with Us

You will benefit from an individualised, patient-centred approach to healthcare pioneered by the Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM), which treats the body as an interconnected entity rather than considering each system separately – this way we can look for the common threads that link your symptoms, however unrelated they may appear at first glance.

By following this evidence-based approach, your practitioner will seek to identify underlying causes of your dis-ease and will engage you in the process of restoring wellness by the most appropriate means. Functional medicine does not exclude the use of pharmaceutical medications but instead compliments conventional medicine by addressing the dietary and lifestyle factors that drive most chronic diseases so patients get a better outcome with reduced need for medication and long term health benefits. Symptomatic relief may come quickly from medication but long-term sustainable health can take a little longer to achieve.

Our approach requires specialist training and considerable clinical experience to negotiate the complexity that underlies chronic disease, this includes the use of a range of functional tests (blood, stool, saliva, urine & genetics) to support the investigation into what drives your health complaint. Please note that we do not offer medical support so you should continue to engage with your GP or consultant.

Gut health (IBS, IBD, SIBO, ‘leaky gut’, food intolerance, reflux & indigestion, gall bladder problems, Candida overgrowth, parasites, histamine sensitivity), mast cell activation and the myriad of symptoms associated with these conditions are our areas of specialist interest.

Mental health: anxiety, depression, brain fog, poor memory & concentration, lack of motivation, insomnia

Nutrition and lifestyle medicine offers an integrative approach to healthcare which does not exclude the need for conventional medicine, it is important you consult your GP on matters concerning your health and any changes to bowel habit, pains, fatigue or skin changes. Any prescription medications you may be taking will be checked for potential interaction with your health protocol.

How It Works

For more complex or chronic health issues, we recommend a supportive consultation package that runs over the course of 4 months. This gives us time to investigate the cause of your problems and work through treatment program. Most of our clients experience significant improvements to their wellness within a few weeks of starting to work with us, some cases may take longer to achieve adequate resolution. Pay as you go options are also available.
