Jan graduated in 2008 with a Diploma of Nutrition and as ‘Top Nutrition’ student at Wellpark College of Natural Therapies. Jan also holds a Nutritional Advisor Diploma UK and is a member of the Clinical Nutrition Association of New Zealand.
Jan’s approach as a nutritionist is holistic and Jan believes food must be functional as well as enjoyable, and most of all, fit into one’s daily routine. Sound nutrition is a vital aspect in our lives, but it is part of the ‘big picture,’ and striking a balance that works for the individual is the key.
An initial consultation is arranged by appointment, where an assessment of the individuals health concerns, diet and lifestyle are taken into consideration.
Bio-chemical mineral therapy is prescribed to support the individual’s specific requirements.
A sound nutritional program works extremely well in combination with mainstream medicine. Consideration is given to treatments prescribed by a medical practitioner, regarding awareness of interactions to drugs and medications.

Thanks again for all your help Jan.
I have continued on my elimination diet and am feeling really well for it. I plan to continue being careful as I am feeling so good for it and have a good collection of recipes now.
My skin has really calmed down a lot from when I first saw you.. not the same acne that I did have.
My daughter is now very aware of what sugar does to our bodies which is a good thing to know and is feeling a lot happier about things. I have incorporated a lot more veges and fruit in the kids lunch boxes and put in a healthy treat occasionally and they have both adjusted well to the healthier way of eating.

Two years ago I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. I am on Prednisone, a steriod drug which suppresses my immune system and helps my liver function, however there are many side effects taking steriods and I suffered badly with poor digestion and inflammation.
I decided to have consultation with Jan van der Lee – Clinical Nutritionist at Waipu Natural Health. A masked allergy test showed I had positive readings to various foods, including gluten and some chemicals. I believe that behind every autoimmune disease are other health issues and I have suffered from IBS for many years.
Thanks to Jan I am now thriving on a gluten free diet, a worthwhile lifestyle change. My digestion has improved and inflammation has reduced so much that I have gained weight and the good news is my steroid dosage is reducing.
