Wendy Urwin is a highly qualified and experienced practitioner based in the Scottish Highlands with clients from all over the UK.

 

She works with a range of chronic health conditions but has a particular interest in immune dysfunction (persistent infections, food intolerance/allergy and auto-immune conditions), hormone imbalances (thyroid, adrenal and sex hormones), and gastro-intestinal dysfunctions.

 

Wendy has a specialist knowledge of chronic fatigue and Lyme disease, and is qualified in Nutrigenomic Analysis (NTEC).

Wendy’s Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Aberdeen explored all aspects of life sciences and provided a robust knowledge base in microbiology, anatomy and physiology, parasitology, mycology, biochemistry and genetics. She worked in environmental research and gained a senior position working in microbiology labs. Wendy took a career break to have children and suffered a collapse in her own health resulting in chronic fatigue.

Personal experience taught Wendy how diet and lifestyle can have a significant influence on health and wellbeing, with the power to both cause and heal chronic ill health. Having experienced the dead-end of chronic illness (“tests say there is nothing wrong”) and discovered a way out, Wendy was inspired to retrain and gain the necessary clinical skills to help others who found themselves on that road to nowhere.

Wendy entered a Masters course in Nutritional Therapy with Middlesex University and completed a full-time 2-year postgraduate practitioner training course at NCA in York. She is a registered Nutritional Therapist with full professional membership of BANT (British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapists) and is on the CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council) accredited register, as approved by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care, which approves GP referrals. Wendy is a member of IFM (Institute of Functional Medicine) and will complete the IFM training course, AFMCP, in 2018.

These professional qualifications demonstrate Wendy’s desire to achieve the highest standards of integrity, knowledge, competence and professional practice. She regularly attends CPD events, training and conferences to keep abreast of the latest scientific research enabling her to update and develop her clinical practice.

Her goal is to empower clients to take control of their health, helping them understand the underlying cause of their health problems and the steps they need to take to address these issues. Clients are supported on their personal health journey using evidence-based nutrition, easy-to-understand explanations, realistic and achievable steps, joint goal setting, practical tips and advice.

All clients are treated with kindness, respect and empathy. Wendy will work within each clients ability and means to find a solution to their health problems.
