"I am passionate about an integrative approach to health and wellbeing, balancing medicine with a holistic approach to each individual. Each person has their unique blueprint for health which involves a complex interplay of lifestyle, environment and their physiology. Next Practice supports this progressive approach to health, continually evolving to provide both practitioner and patient an optimal environment to achieve wellness."
Dr Lyn Tendak has been practicing integrative medicine for 15 years and is passionate about the impact this type of medicine can have on people’s wellbeing and how a collaborative approach with mainstream GPs and allied health practitioners, can lead to a truly holistic approach to healing.
After completing her Bachelor of medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS, (Hons)) and obtaining a Diploma in Gynaecology and Obstetrics. Lyn undertook further training at Bio-Balance health and ACNEM which has given her extensive experience in Women’s health and Integrative Medicine.
Integrative medicine is a comprehensive approach to health and well being that takes into account the whole person and therefore all the factors that influence health, wellness and disease for a truly holistic approach to healing. Lyn believes the relationship between the practitioner and the patient is integral to the healing process. It is a true collaboration with the focus being on the person and not the disease. Integrative medicine combines the best of western medicine with evidence based complementary medicine and healthcare practitioners to achieve optimal wellbeing and facilitate the body’s own healing potential.
With a focus on addressing the causes of illness and the impact of lifestyle on well being, Lyn works with the individual to develop a personalised program that may include lifestyle recommendations involving sleep, diet modification and stress management, nutrient and herbal supplements and bio-identical hormones. As we come to realise just how much impact lifestyle factors such as nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress management, relationships and environment have on our health, this field of medicine takes all of this into account.\
