Lauren Windas is a fully registered Nutritionist (mBANT) (CNHC) and Naturopath (ND) with major focus on stress, fatigue and digestive health.

In addition, she suffered from cognitive and digestive symptoms and food intolerances, amongst other confusing and debilitating health troubles.
Lauren utilised the power of functional medicine, which examines the underlying causes of illness and health imbalances. She treated herself naturally and has almost entirely REturned to her normal health.
By making specific dietary and lifestyle changes she learned the fundamental triggers of poor health. Lauren has build on this personal life lesson to qualify as a nutritionist and naturopath and has teamed up with her sister, Nicole, to share their collective passion for healthy living and create their own wellbeing lifestyle brand, ARDERE.
