Kim Cunnington, a Naturopath and Clinical Nutritionist opened Feel One’s Zest Clinic, located at The Core, at the start of 2021. She decided to tie her qualifications in Clinical Nutrition and Naturopathy together with her Cheffing Qualifications to offer the Carterton community a natural wellness approach which supports the whole body with an added focus on nutrition. She has been an international chef for over 20 years, of which 6 of those have been as a wholefood chef.
Kims dad passed away from Type 1 diabetes at the tender age of 54 with so many dreams of his unmet. She knew, 11 years ago when he passed away, that it was her calling to assist other families and individuals in living their healthiest life possible.
Starting her own clinic has been a goal for the past 5 years, and she has found it amazing to be able to support the community in sustainable wellness whilst supporting the other wellness businesses in our town.
Kim knows that when you are diagnosed with a condition or allergy, it can be confusing and overwhelming to know what to eat or do for sustainable wellness. She works with her clients at the stage they are at with their health, and then works collaboratively on their wellness plans.
Feel one’s Zest offers complete nutritional meal plans for their clients, from toddlers to aged care. They offer a ‘kickstart your wellness’ programme which is a great option for people who want and need the motivation and accountability to start focussing on their health & wellness.
Kim works alongside the GP’s as a complementary therapy to support the body optimally and is in no way an alternative therapy. She goes by the approach of not telling her clients what they can’t eat and shouldn’t do, but rather what they can add in for whole body health. She likes to empower her clients to take control of their own health while guiding them to a point of long-term wellness. Kim can incorporate herbal medicine into wellness plans where needed also.
When asked to describe her business in three words summarises it well; Naturopath, Nutrition and Wellness. Kim loves the community feel and togetherness in Carterton and her best business tip is to not let fear hold you back.
