Meet The Team

Carina Brits

Owner and founder of EWC mediwellness centre

Carina spent many years in the business and corporate world before she changed her career and entered the Health and Aesthetic industry in 2004 when she established EWC mediwellness centre.

She is a qualified therapist, nutritionist and ASCHP registered specialist wellness counselor (B PSHYC honours degree) as well as member of COMENSA (coaching association of SA). She has a special interest in the impact of genes on overall health and has been practicing as an accredited Geneway practitioner and coach since 2018.

Carina partnered with Dr Anel van Putten during 2008 to offer the Slender wonder medical weight loss program, and has since then build up a very successful practice with years of experience in weight loss coaching.

She is overall just a down to earth person that loves nature, people, travelling and her family as a grandma of three.

Dr Anel van Putten 

I studied at Stellenbosch and worked in many fields over the years as a General practitioner. My involvement with EWC started on a part time basis in 2008 as a medical partner on the Slender wonder medical weight loss program.

I have a special interest in the prevention of lifestyle related diseases and also how you could adapt your lifestyle and the way you eat based on your own genetic make-up.

My full-time private GP practice is in Durbanville.
