Walsh Services – About Lynn


Lynn Bednar - Walsh Natural Health

Lynn Bednar, MS, CNS, LDN

Clinical Nutritionist Specializing in a Functional Medicine Approach

Innovative. Educational. Personalized. Sustainable. Empowering.

I have a passion for natural health! I believe that health is a creative process that is affected by:

  • Genetics
  • Current Health conditions
  • Use of medications
  • Family health history
  • Diet and supplementation
  • Emotional health
  • Social connection
  • Environment
  • Purpose

I was introduced to the use of nutrition and functional medicine while dealing with some health challenges of my own. After having serious back issues that were not helped by conventional medicine therapies, I began to explore alternative means of healing.

This exploration led me to the use of herbs, nutrients, body work, chiropractic, and other modalities to help me heal. What I’ve observed is that natural medicine does a better job of impacting chronic conditions. It doesn’t just mask symptoms, it goes to the root of the problem to produce real healing.

I believe that a natural approach should be used for the prevention and healing of conditions whenever possible. The body has the innate ability to heal itself if given the right nutrients and this should be the first place we turn to in order to heal. Healing therapies should be based on the individual and their unique needs.

“Health is life. Whatever your own unique mission is, you can do it better with good health.”

In 2005 I purchased Walsh Natural Health, the North Shore of Chicago’s premium health and supplements store. I found supplements, diet, & lifestyle to be powerful tools for regaining and maintaining health.

I am expert at the use of supplements including supplement quality, proper dosage, potential interaction with medications, and what best compliments a client’s diet and lifestyle.

I have also studied Nutrigenomics, the scientific study of the interaction of nutrition and genes with regard to the treatment of disease (Oxford). This burgeoning field of health will provide new tools for the personalization of nutrition and lifestyle programs to optimize health. I am proud to offer Genetic Wellness Evaluations as part of my services.

My strength is in my ability to synthesize all of the available information. I can review your health history, bloodwork, previous attempts at solving the issues, genetics, and perform functional testing. Together we can come up with a plan that is both practical and sustainable.

You can expect to come out of our appointments feeling heard, respected, cared for, and empowered to change your health. With the right information and effort you can expect to regain or optimize your health. It would be my privilege to guide you in your health journey!
