Nutrition & Lifestyle Medicine?
Nutrition & Lifestyle Medicine (NLM) is a patient-centred approach to healthcare which promotes long term wellness by digging down and addressing the root cause of chronic illness.
Chronic disorders (and even lack of energy) are the result of physiological imbalances throughout your body – from systemic inflammation, insulin resistance, oxidative stress, to hormonal imbalances – made worse by poor diet or undiagnosed food intolerances, lack of key nutrients, stress, emotional and environmental toxins, as well as a sedentary lifestyle.
Clients usually present with multiple symptoms which may appear unrelated, only by drawing connections between the symptoms we can start to understand and address the underlying cause.
Wendy Urwin has a particular interest in working with gut health-related issues; this highly complex system incorporates the bulk of our immune system and an entire ecosystem (microbiome) and can be connected to a multitude of health complaints and symptoms.
Over the course of 4 -6 months, we provide a personalised nutrition & lifestyle medicine care plan. Most of our clients experience significant improvements to their wellness within a few weeks of starting to work with us.
- Free discovery call: free 15-minute call to find out more about how we work.
- Intake (initial) consultation: 90 min in-depth exploration of your health issues.
- Follow-ups: 60 min or 30 min consultations over the course of the following 3-5 months to review and progress your plan.
The detailed assessment of your health status takes into consideration nutritional, genetic, microbial, lifestyle and environmental factors that influence the function of and interaction between the body’s systems and can mediate progression of disease.
Advanced functional tests may be recommended if necessary to inform clinical decisions: gut, oral or vaginal microbiome tests; comprehensive stool tests; thyroid screens; urinary organic acids; DUTCH test for hormones; genetic testing; mould and environmental assessments.
NLM restores whole-body health and wellbeing by gently supporting healing from the inside out. You are encouraged to engage in a therapeutic partnership, understanding the cause of your problems so you are motivated and empowered to make life changes that bring about long-term health.
