gut health nutritionists

  • inflammatory conditions 
  • hormones disruptions

How does a nutritionist help with gut health

A clinical nutritionist can help with gut health issues due to their degree level training, experience with gut specific health complaints and up to date knowledge of gut health science. 

Clinical nutritionists have experience with functional testing (microbiome stool testing, SIBO testing etc) and are well versed in deciphering test results and applying individualised treatment plans based on your clinical presentation and symptom picture. 

A nutritionist can educate you on how your gut health is impacting your overall well-being and how individualised nutrition can be used to make a significant positive shift.  This will be used to create tailored treatment and dietary plans catering to your specific needs.

how does this differ from your usual consultations at the jcn clinic?

The package is designed to run over 3 months offering clients with specific gut issues and interest in functional testing a discounted option to kick start their treatment process. The Gut Health Nutrition Package offers a truly comprehensive format, celebrating The JCN Clinic’s passion for gut health and its centric connection to our overall well being.

The Gut Health Nutrition Package utilises the latest and most well researched testing methods to identify your personalised gut microbial footprint. This in turn helps us assess, guide and treat you based on your individual health requirements and needs. Thanks to the latest in gut based functional testing combined with JCN practitioner support, guidance and treatment plans we can aid you towards getting your gut health sorted!

why should I do a gut microbiome test?

Information about the systemic effects of the microbiota is now flooding the mainstream media day to day with more research and links to overall health. At The JCN Clinic, we have always prioritised gut health as the underpinning of wellness; therefore it is integral to us to offer a package that gets you as excited about a gut health as we continue to be.

A comprehensive stool test that breaks down your individual microbial foot print is an invaluable window into your gut function. This is often an essential tool for your practitioner to guide you through a treatment plan of individualised gut care. The most common symptoms seen with a dysfunctional gut are:

  • IBS symptoms such as bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhoea, reflux and heartburn.
  • Poor energy and fatigue. 
  • Frequent colds, flus and immune issues.
  • Joint inflammation and systemic fluid retention.
  • Poor skin integrity, acne, psoriasis and eczema.
  • Brain fog, poor concentration and frequent headaches.
