Dr Jana Wegner is a General Practitioner who obtained her medical degree in 2008 at the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa. She completed her internship in Pietermaritzburg and spent a year of community service at the Red Cross Children's Hospital in Cape Town where she additionaly obtained a Diploma in Child Health. In 2013 she opened a private practice in Sea Point but became increasingly disillusioned with the normal medical approach to treating patients. Medical technology claims to be more advanced than ever yet chronic diseases seem to be on the rise instead of declining. This frustration together with her own health challenges, including depression, anxiety, multiple digestive issues and chronic fatigue, inclined her to dig a bit deeper to uncover the root of disease.
Her introduction to Functional Medicine brought about a new excitement when she found that diet, lifestyle and environmental factors likely play the biggest role when it comes to chronic disease and discomfort. She also investigated “new” research (which is actually as old as time) which proves that most diseases can be traced back to the health of our digestive system and that optimising the gut is critical in the approach to treating almost any chronic condition.
This information ignited a new-found passion to partner with patients holistically so they may become whole in body, mind and spirit.

Danielle Labuschagne is a qualified Physiotherapist who has found that when patients’ postures improve and they learn how to move well, their pain reduces significantly. The deep truth about posture and movement is to carry yourself within your identity in Christ. You are made to be royalty. An overcomer. Truth changes your heart, your mind and your body so scripture led Danielle to develop a Christ-centred exercise, namely Rahzu. This exercise is focused on who you are in Christ portrayed in your ideal posture.
