She integrates the best of both conventional and evidence based complementary medicine for a truly holistic approach. With a focus on addressing the causes of illness and the impact of lifestyle on well being, she 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.
Dr Tendek’s areas of interest include:
- Women’s health
- Men’s health
- Bio-identical hormones
- Thyroid disease
- Chronic fatigue/fibromyalgia
- Emotional and mental health
- Digestive disorders and gut health
- Autoimmune disorders

Lyn believes that integrative medicine has a unique role in both prevention of illness and restoration to well being and recognises the body’s own ability to heal itself provided the cornerstone lifestyle factors are addressed- diet, exercise, sleep, stress and purpose.
It is the integrative practitioner’s challenge and privilege to partner with the patient in their journey to healing, health and wellness.
