"I am passionate about an integrative approach to health and well-being, 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 Tendek has been practicing Integrative Medicine for 15 years and is passionate about the impact it can have on her patient's well-being. Lyn believes 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 and Bachelor of Surgery, Lyn obtained a Diploma in Gynaecology and Obstetrics. She then continued her training at the Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine and Bio-Balance Health, leading to extensive knowledge and experience in Women's Health and Integrative Medicine.
Integrative Medicine (IM) is a comprehensive approach to health care, it reaffirms the importance of the relationship between practitioner and patient while taking into account the whole person. IM combines the best of western medicine with evidence-based complementary medicine and therapies to achieve optimal well-being and facilitate the body's own healing potential.
With a focus on addressing the cause of illness and the impact of lifestyle (such as nutrition, exercise, sleep, relationships and environment) on our health and well-being, Lyn works with her patients to develop an individualised programme of care. This may include diet modification, stress management, nutrient and herbal supplements, and bio-identical hormones.
Due to the comprehensive nature of Lyn's consultations, her appointments are as follows:
- Initial consultation - 1 hour
- Follow-up consultation - 30 minutes
