Wendy Smith

BSc (Hons), mBANT, rCNHC, AFMCP Graduate

Wendy qualified as a nutritional therapist in 2001. She began her training at the renowned Institute of Optimum Nutrition in London and thereafter gained an honours degree in nutritional therapy from the University of Westminster. She is a member of BANT (British Association for Nutrition & Lifestyle Medicine) and the Institute for Functional Medicine in America. She is registered with the CNHC (Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council) which means that she is bound by a strict Code of Conduct and attends regular postgraduate training to attain the highest standards of knowledge and competence to practise.

Clients consult Wendy for help with a range of issues including fatigue, stress, blood sugar, hormonal imbalances, but her specialist areas are the gut, and restoration of digestive health, as well as support for cancer. Some clients may be recovering from cancer and invasive treatments, or are looking for help to prevent or reduce their risk of recurrence.  Wendy has undertaken additional training in this field in order to help cancer patients stay as well as possible during their treatment and to assist in their recovery.  

Wendy’s knowledge and years of clinical experience leave her in no doubt about the power of food and nutrition to influence health and the disease process. Her motivation comes from empowering individuals with the knowledge and tools they need to optimise their own health potential and she utilises her many years of experience and training to motivate and coach clients to achieve their personal health goals.

More About Me

Wendy spent several years with Age UK in Bromley & Greenwich setting up and running numerous health and nutrition projects for people over 50 in the community and working with diverse cultures such as Nepalese, Indian, African and Caribbean.  She was instrumental in setting up one of the first ‘Men in Sheds’ projects in the country, a project that addresses isolation and health needs of older men. She continues to be involved in the Gurkha veteran project she created, both as a volunteer and through delivery of educational health events and cooking workshops.

She volunteers for the Charity ‘Yes to Life’, an organisation that helps people affected by cancer to access information and support around integrated therapies.

An experienced speaker on food, nutrition and health, Wendy provides talks and workshops in both corporate and community settings on a variety of topics.

Wendy trained using a Functional Medicine approach which emphasises the importance of high-quality foods and phytonutrient diversity to address clinical imbalances. Functional medicine recognises that each of us is unique - one size does not fit all.  Wendy’s advice is tailored to each person’s unique health and set of circumstances. Functional medicine practitioners are looking to identify nutritional and physiological imbalances, and how they may be contributing to illness or symptoms. The approach allows Wendy to work with people on many levels by addressing imbalances and supporting the body towards a return to health, not simply treating an isolated set of symptoms.

Cutting-edge science enables advice to be even more personalised: functional lab testing helps to identify nutritional and biochemical imbalances, and gene testing provides information about a person’s genetic predisposition. By identifying the unique genetic makeup of an individual, and which of their genes can be influenced by nutrition, advice can be further personalised to maximise health.  Wendy has undergone training in the application of nutrigenomics and continues to study this newly evolving and exciting field of health.
