ill title The Practitioner

Wendy’s first career was in IT consultancy having graduated from Imperial College with a Masters in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. 

Wendy became interested in nutrition after the birth of her first daughter. Age 6 months her daughter developed eczema and age 1 year she was diagnosed with glue ear. After some research she put her daughter on a dairy free diet. Her daughter’s eczema and glue ear cleared up.

    

After the birth of her second daughter both Wendy and her daughter developed health problems. Wendy developed breastfeeding thrush and her daughter developed oral thrush and experienced growth problems. They were both diagnosed with candida and adopted an anti-candida diet.

After seeing the benefits to her own and family's health Wendy started studying nutritional therapy. She has a diploma in Nutritional Therapy from the Institute of Optimum Nutrition in Richmond, founded by Patrick Holford. Click here to visit the ION website.
