Tara, you are full of good information. As the saying goes “it’s only a one degree difference for water to boil” .… you are that degree that helps me stay on track. SC, Cleveland, OH

I met with Tara for 6-weeks for a constipation issue. During that time I began to poop daily, rather than every 10 days. Tara’s bag of tricks and guidance made the difference. PK, Boulder, CO


You can book a nutritional consultation or more specific body ecology support with one of the options below:

Pick My Brain – 60 minutes

This is a good choice for answers to basic questions, such as detox, food combining, adjusting diet while pregnant/breastfeeding, feeding picky eaters or kids with food sensitivities, getting “things” moving, and so on. We will brainstorm together and you will be cheered on as you fine-tune your experience. 

Start-Ups – 90 minute intake plus two follow-ups (60 minutes each) 

This is a good choice for customized nutritional support with an in-depth review of your health history and dietary needs. You will receive a weekly food journal, variety of handouts, and a summary of recommendations made during our time together. Start-Ups are designed to assess your current state of health as you take steps into a different way of eating and living. 

See pricing and booking.

May all bellies be happy!
