Lisa Lowery-Jones – Nutritional Therapist
Lisa first became interested in nutrition whilst studying for a Bsc (Hons) in Sports and Exercise Science at the University of Brighton. She went on to work at the Hammersmith Hospital in London as a Research Assistant in Gastroenterology then as a Scientific Officer in Genomic Medicine, where she ran a DNA sequencing service.
In 2008, she relocated to Kent and took time out to look after her new born twins. In 2011, she took her interest in nutrition to the next level and studied for two years at Premier Training, graduating with a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy. She is also a member of the British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT).
She has been running her own practice in Folkestone since 2013 where she sees clients for personalised nutritional assessments. Her main area of interest is helping clients with weight loss, but she also helps people change their nutrition for sports, optimal fertility and gives advice on specialised diets such as vegetarian, vegan or yeast-free. She works with each client individually to determine their likes and dislikes in order to make small dietary changes.
Alongside all this, she provides a food intolerance testing service, which is a simple test for anyone wishing to find out if they have any reactions to certain foods. Client samples are sent off to the laboratory to detect food-specific IgG antibodies in the blood. Symptoms of food intolerance include abdominal pain, skin problems, bloating, fatigue, IBS, fluid retention, headaches, weight gain, wheezing and low mood. Identifying and eliminating any trigger foods can greatly reduce or remove symptoms for the client giving rise to a better quality of life.
