Therapeutic Nutrition Consultant

Tara Carpenter, NC.

Nutritional guidance for people healing with The Body Ecology Diet.

I am a Nutrition Consultant offering step-by-step nutritional guidance for people of all ages on Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.); a foundational system of health and healing

I offer the following nutritional services:

  1. In-Home Cooking
  2. Meal Plans
  3. Nutritional Consultations

My scope of practice:

I provide supportive advice on food and nutrients to help people feel better rather than manage, handle, control, diagnose, or treat individual health conditions. My role complements that of a medical health care provider to provide step-by-step healing, wholesome, nourishing care.

I am most experienced with:

Health Issues

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Dietary restrictions (i.e., dairy, sugar, gluten)
  • Digestive Issues (i.e., bloating, flatulence, pain)
