Nutritional Therapy - More than Nutrition!

Nutritional Therapists provide professional guidance for upgrading and maintaining your health naturally through laboratory testing, dietary habits, nutritional supplements & lifestyle choices.


Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. It is an effective therapy that addresses a wide range of health concerns, which are commonly found to be intricately linked as recognised by functional medicine.


Practitioners at Kent Nutrition Clinic take particular interest in working with gastrointestinal issues such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), leaky gut, bloating, food intolerances, reflux, heartburn, autoimmune conditions, weight-loss resistance and children's health issues.


Nutritional therapists use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional and biochemical imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual's symptoms and health concerns. Such tools may include laboratory tests, such as Cyrex tests and Genova Diagnostics. This approach allows practitioners to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health. Nutritional therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing.


Practitioners consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a 'one size fits all' approach. Practitioners never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with 'red flag' signs or symptoms to their medical professional. They will also frequently work alongside other medical professionals and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the patient's care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided.


Please take note of the following:  


  • The degree of benefit obtainable from Nutritional Therapy may vary between clients/patients with similar health problems and following a similar Nutritional Therapy programme.
  • Nutritional advice will be tailored to support health conditions and/or health concerns identified and agreed between both parties.
  • Nutritional therapists are not permitted to diagnose, or claim to treat, medical conditions.
  • Nutritional advice is not a substitute for professional medical advice and/or treatment.
  • Nutritional Therapists may recommend food supplements and/or functional testing / diagnostic laboratory testing as part of your Nutritional Therapy programme and may receive a commission on these products or services.
  • Standards of professional practice in Nutritional Therapy are governed by the CNHC Code of Conduct.
