What is Nutrition & Lifestyle Medicine?
Nutrition & Lifestyle Medicine (NLM) is an individualised, patient-centred approach to healthcare which promotes long term wellbeing by addressing the root cause of chronic ill health.
Wendy Urwin, a Registered Nutrition Practitioner, will carry-out a detailed assessment of your health status taking into consideration nutritional, genetic, microbiological, lifestyle and environmental factors that influence the function of the body systems and identify imbalances that underlie and mediate progression of disease.
Blood, stool, breath, saliva or genetic tests may be used to aid your assessment. Functional tests differ from medical tests in that they identify abnormalities or imbalances which precede or underlie disease. (Medical tests are diagnostic, used to identify and treat acute or life-threatening diseases, usually with pharmaceuticals.)
NLM restores whole-body health and wellbeing by gently supporting healing from the inside out. You will be encouraged to engage in a therapeutic partnership, understanding the cause of your problems so you are motivated to make life changes that bring about long term health.
More than one consultation will be required to understand and address chronic health concerns which have developed over a number of years; packages offer better value and improve outcome for clients. You can upgrade your package, add-on tests or extra consultations if required, however, once a package has started it is non-refundable.
‘Pay as you go’ consultations are also available.
Note that the consultations below display face to face contact time (e.g. Initial – 90 mins) but the fee also reflects extensive non-contact time analysing and researching your case.
