Listen to a video testimonial from our past client, Alandra

  • "I reached out to Taryn for a consultation call because I felt like I had done everything I could on my own, seeing doctors, doing testing, and doing my own reading, with no results. During our initial call I felt like, for the first time, someone finally saw me and understood not only my symptoms but the mental tool they were taking. Through our first session we talking through my symptoms; reoccurring yeast infections, heartburn so bad I could hardly eat, gas, bloat, exhaustion and fatigue, high stress, and in and out of depression, all of which I had been suffering with for over 5 years. Over the next few months I began to feel so much better solving these issues and even more I didn’t realize were related. I was able to get off all the harmful medications I had been relying on everyday for years. I don’t even want to think about how much worse I would have continued to feel if it were not for taking action and getting the help of Healthfully Nourished. Taryn was beyond helpful, kind, passionate, and continuously checking throughout the entire program. Even after the program I will continue to be able to leverage all I learned with the many take way resources she provided." - Sarah, 25, NC

  • "Working with Taryn was a long time coming. For at least the previous 10 years I had been dealing with food stress/anxiety, digestive issues, acne, irregular periods, and side effects of coming off birth control and ADHD medication. I had worked with my PCP, OB/GYN, and GI doctor with no real relief or answers. After working with a therapist on my relationship with food, I soon started working with Taryn. Taryn’s program was set up in a way that I was able to easily navigate and make sustainable changes based on results from my lab results while working with Taryn, as well as her overall discovery into my lifestyle. Taryn always made herself available when necessary through the app and answered questions, provided dietary recommendations, and a better overall approach to food that took the guess work and stress out of it all. It’s now 6 months later and my life has taken a 180. I no longer stress over digestive issues and my food choices. My skin is better, my periods are regular, and best of all, my overall mood and energy are better than they have been in years! I am getting ready to go on a 3 week honeymoon, traveling internationally. In the past this would have been stressful, trying to navigate dietary concerns and just the overall toll traveling takes on one’s body but I am not stressed about it at all, thanks to Taryn and the immense amount of progress I have made with her program.  I now know how to support my body so that these types of situations are no longer stressful and a concern. I can now just enjoy myself and live in the moment on my honeymoon ! Now that Taryn has set me up with the knowledge, tools, and occasional still answering  of questions, I am able to live in the moment without the weight of stress and concern over food and my health :)" - Elizabeth, 31

  • "This program has helped me in more areas than I could have imagined. I didn’t realize my depression, energy, and stress was also related to the imbalance of bacteria in my gut. By being able to address the problem at its root, my symptoms started to just disappear." 

  • "I came to Taryn after seeing a handful of different doctors and specialists (ER visits, PCP, Neurologist, Chiropractor, Eye doctor, MRIs, you name it..) none of whom were able to provide me answers as to my dizziness, vertigo, anxiety attacks, and general not feeling like myself. I reached out thinking that I had some imbalance in my hormones. After carefully listening to my symptoms, Taryn recommended doing a GI test and Mycotoxin test, as opposed to the hormone test based on what I was describing. The test came back off the charts with exposure to a mycotoxin that is directly correlated to all the symptoms I was feeling. Without Taryn, not only would I still be struggling with the symptoms, the root cause likely would have remained undetected. I am truly so thankful for Taryn’s expertise and approach to health care." - Kylie

  • "This program has been life changing! I’ve been told for years that my symptoms are normal and the testing looks normal and that there’s nothing the doctors can help me with. When I met Taryn, she was so kind and listened to my backstory and assured me I’m not alone. She’s worked with me through education and testing to find the root cause of my symptoms to start healing my body. And it’s working!" - Meagan

  • "Taryn has been an absolute dream to work with. After years of feeling at a loss (googling, doctors, yo-yo dieting, etc.) on how to address my low energy, weight fluctuation, cravings, and period symptoms, I feel that I have a much better understanding of my body and what I need to do to heal it. Thanks to Taryn's expertise and guidance through this process, all my symptoms have improved and I feel well on the way to my healthiest and best self." - Elizabeth

  • "I felt like my general doctor and my specialists weren’t listening to me and were not willing to get to the root cause of my issues. They seemed only want to give me a broad spectrum diagnosis for something that didn’t make sense but wouldn’t get the tests I asked for run. I felt like with this program I was heard and no rock was left unturned and my gut feelings were respected and tested. I got the tests I wanted and felt I needed and then was given the steps to try to heal my issues at home with some guidance and without being told to take a prescription just to heal symptoms and not the root cause of my issues. Things were easy to understand and Taryn was great at helping me work through any issues I had along the way." - Allison

  • "I was having major unexplained anxiety attacks before I started this program, which I never experienced before, and which led me to this program. I haven’t had any episodes in over a month and no longer need the anti-anxiety prescription I received earlier in the year."

  • "I initially reach out because I was struggling with my weight and having these episodes of really bad bloating and stomach pains, as well as, extreme tiredness. I knew something wasn’t right and had been talking with my PCP, but they kept telling me everything was alright. After starting this program, which was very easy to start, I was tested for all kinds potential issues. This process was extremely easy and I was able to do everything from my own home. Once Taryn started to get an idea of what was going on, she started me on a very complex, but easy to follow treatment plan. Taryn made the program simple helping me understand when to take what and when and linked me with great resources that help establish a better eating habit, which for me, included more frequent meals. Before I know it, all my symptoms were starting to go away and I was feeling worlds better. If it wasn’t for her help, I would still be running around trying to figure out what was wrong. Taryn is the best and I enjoyed working with her greatly!!" - Leandra, 40

  • "I had hit a point in my health journey where I was low in energy, feeling bloated and uncomfortable, having trouble losing weight, skin flaring with acne, painful periods, and just hit a plateau in healthy eating. I had gone in circles and making no progress. I finally decided to search out a nutritionist and found Taryn. I am so glad I reached out! She was very careful in listening to my concerns and took very special care to address those concerns. Each session we had she made sure to go through every concern, make changes needed, and track progress. At the beginning of the process we did functional testing. I had never done anything like this and it was very eye-opening! We were able to nail down the causes to some of the issues I was experiencing, allowing us to really address the cause, not just the symptom. After making adjustments and taking it step by step, I saw most of my what I struggled with almost disappear! My energy has increased, I no longer struggle with bloating, the pain from my periods has decreased, my skin has continued to clear, and I've gained a better understanding of eating in a way that fuels my body. I have gained confidence in myself and my decisions, making this a lifestyle, not just a fad diet. I am incredibly grateful for all of the help and care Taryn gave and would recommend her to anyone!" -Leslie

  • "Taryn has been fantastic helping understand my hormones and how to get my body back to normal! I have tried so many things over the past 2 years and just continued to hit a rock wall. This is the most progress I have made towards treating my PCOS and learning how to eat healthy and see tangible results."

  • "I have enjoyed working with Taryn. She is a passionate, driven individual who is eagerly invested in ensuring that you have the answers to your questions and is genuinely invested in your overall health and wellbeing. She is truly there for you. While Taryn is a professional, she also feels like a friend as she is able to relate to the things you share with her. I would recommend the programs she offers to anyone who is truly seeking change as Taryn can help guide the way."

  • "I reached out to Taryn for help because I was experiencing stomach aches on a daily basis. I had gone to a gastroenterologist and nothing came up in my blood work and no results came up when I had an endoscopy done as well. They suggested I have my gallbladder looked at after that and I felt like I was just being sent down a bunch of rabbit holes trying to figure out what was wrong with me. Taryn recommended we take one test that allowed her to see what was wrong with me and found out my stomach aches were coming from a bacteria that was in my stomach that was easily curable. The test also showed that I do have some sensitivity to certain foods which was also great to validate knowing those foods do cause stomach aches as well as enhance them when I eat them. However, I feel that if hadn’t seen Taryn I wouldn’t have figured out there was a bacteria in my stomach that needed to be taken care of. She put me on a simple and straight forward regimen that I was able to follow over the past few weeks and months. I now don’t get those stomach aches anymore and also feel like I can manage my gut health a lot better just understanding what can cause them. Super grateful for Taryn’s help! :)" - Maggie

  • "Taryn has helped me to take a pause, sit back, and really explore what my health/wellness goals are. She has helped me to get to the root cause of my symptoms and to take a holistic approach towards my overall health/fitness/nutrition goals. She is extremely helpful and supportive and has been a wonderful resource to me these past few months!" - Ragan 

  • "I began searching for a registered dietician because I had finally reached a point where I knew I needed a change - and that the change I needed wasn't in my personal wheelhouse. I had a chronic pain condition that had plateaued, even with weekly PT and medication management. I was tired all the time, felt disconnected from my monthly cycle, and overall was just sick and tired of being sick and tired! I found Taryn via Google Search. Her website was very informative and transparent about services and her expertise. After reaching out, her response time was quick and I felt that her pricing was fair given her time, talent, and skillset. I was surprised at how in-depth our initial discovery call was and how attentive Taryn was to my communicated needs (which was further cemented after I received a copy of our session notes with written instructions, which was SO helpful, as I am someone who needs things written down!) I will admit that immediately I felt better, despite struggling during weeks 4-6 with staying constant and giving myself grace when life events came up. I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to stay consistent and that any progress I made would just fade away - but Taryn continued to encourage me and never made me feel like I was "on a diet". Instead, I feel like I see food and nutrition as just another part of my life that needs to be prioritized, similar to how normalized hygiene or household chores are. Now, I don't feel the huge anxiety when I need a quick meal that isn't McDonalds, I no longer fret over standing up for myself when my significant other wants to eat out at a place I know isn't good for my health, and I overall feel much better than I did before beginning this journey." -Cory, 32, NC

  • "I reached our to Taryn to address gut issues I'd had for as long as I can remember. I was over feeling that way and knew I needed to do something to try to fix it. She listened to me, validated the way I was feeling and genuinely cared about trying to help me. A month or so into the protocol I felt SO much better and I'm continuing to improve. She's also helped me with some struggles I've had with weight loss. I'm so grateful for her!" -Tori, 29, NC

  • "Since working with Taryn I feel like I finally have control over my nutrition. I struggled for years trying many different diets and this created a lot of negative habits and a negative mindset towards food in general. I feel like I have confidence in my decisions and have been able to create a sustainable lifestyle while also losing weight and feeling better." - Charlotte

  • "This program was the step I needed to really prioritize my own health in a world and my life that, so often, revolved around the other people in my life. It was difficult taking both the emotional and financial leap into this, but I believe it was worth it. As someone who is very aware of their body and health history, Taryn met me where I was and never made me feel like I wasn't the expert in my own body (which happens often to women in traditional healthcare settings). Her gentle nature and constant reassurance were welcome proponents to keep my on track."

  • "I have learned how to look at my food intake with a totally different perspective. Taryn has thought me how to ADD instead of RESTRICT. I have learned the importance of snacking where as before I would not snack because of the extra calorie intake. I’ve learned how much the gut has an impact of so many areas of my well-being. I feel that I have more control of my health after working with Taryn. I’m excited to continue my health journey with this new wealth of knowledge I have gained!" -Carolyne

  • "Taryn has been amazing to work with over the past few months! She is super knowledgeable and really wants to get down to the root cause of your signs and symptoms. If you do the micronutrient testing, she really takes a deep dive when analyzing the results to make suggestions so you can truly optimize these nutrients. As an ICU nurse, who works days and nights and is in Graduate school, I was experiencing fatigue and brain fog, however, since I’ve been working with Taryn those signs have drastically improved. If you were considering working with Taryn, do it! There is no better time than now to reach out to Taryn and invest in your health!"

  • "Taryn’s program was amazing!! I can’t stress it enough. I am feeling so much better than when I started and I owe it all to her. I can now enjoy events without having a stomach ache the entire time! She listened thoroughly to all of my concerns from start to finish. Taryn took a holistic approach to really dig deeper and figure out what was going on with my stomach issues. This program was 100% worth it!" - Carly

  • "Taryn helps discover the root cause of your problem, attacks that and helps you completely change your health lifestyle. Not only has she helped me correct my root gut issue, I also lost 15 pounds and crave a healthier diet."

 

  • "Taryn is PHENOMENAL at finding out what your specific issue in within your body. With specific supplements protocols, I have found drastic changes in chronic symptoms that I have had for the past ten years. I would recommend this program to anyone who is looking to make REAL changes and correct the root of their internal body issues!" - India 

  • "When I started with Taryn, I was at a loss at figuring out why I couldn't lose weight, why I always felt so tired, why periods were so painful. I felt like I was doing all of the right things, but nothing was helping. Taryn has provided resources and insight in figuring out not just addressing the symptoms, but digging deeper into the root causes. Seeing the results of the functional tests were so eye opening! Also learning about how the metabolism works and how I need to actually eat to support my body. Since we've started I have gained some energy back, many stomach issues have significantly lessened, and I had my first period that didn't land me in bed! In many ways it's been small wins, but also big wins because I see progress!" -Leslie

  • "I reached out to Taryn because I was struggling with unbearable bloating and lots of food sensitivities that I felt were related to my gut health. She took the time to be thorough going through my concerns and laid out an in-depth protocol that was customized to my specific needs. She has been with me every step of the way to explain how to go through each phase of the protocol we created and has answered every single question I've had, no matter how big or small. I felt intimidated at first introducing new routines into my life, but everything that we did seamlessly fit into my day to day and benefited my gut in my health tremendously. I am not even fully through my specific protocol/regimen yet and I am already feeling sooo much better and I can eat foods that I was not able to eat before! Working with Taryn is worth every penny and she ensures that you don't feel alone at all. If you are looking for a holistic/functional approach to addressing your gut health and nutrition concerns, Taryn is your girl!!!" - Alandra, 26

  • "Since working with Taryn I feel like I finally have control over my nutrition. I struggled for years trying many different diets and this created a lot of negative habits and a negative mindset towards food in general. I feel like I have confidence in my decisions and have been able to create a sustainable lifestyle while also losing weight and feeling better." -Charlotte

  • "This program was the step I needed to really prioritize my own health in a world and my life that, so often, revolved around the other people in my life.

Her gentle nature and constant reassurance were welcome proponents to keep my on track."

  • "This program has helped me immensely! The program has given me a much better understanding my body. I can finally feel my symptoms improving and I am starting to feel better every day! Taryn is amazing and the best listener! She has helped me work through all the stomach issues I had been having and I can’t thank her enough."

  • "For years I have been told by doctors they don’t know why I am getting stomach pains, that it could be my diet as the cause. It wasn’t until starting this program and seeing my lab results that everything started to make sense and since starting the supplements, I have felt so much better!!"

  • "I reached out to Taryn because I wanted to optimize my nutrition. I completed an in-depth assessment form and lab work, which she reviewed with me and we were able to pinpoint potential problem areas. Taryn is so knowledgable and thoughtful. She provided recommendations that truly worked. My fatigue and brain fog were considerably improved after working with Taryn. The whole process was super easy and we were able to find times to meet, even with my busy schedule of working shift work and Graduate school. I was concerned that it would be hard to incorporate these changes into my lifestyle, but Taryn had great tips for how to go about making these changes. Taryn was so supportive during the whole process! I highly recommend reaching out to Taryn with your nutrition and lifestyle concerns!" - Alison, 28, VA

  • "Taryn has taken the time to really help me understand what exactly is going on with my gut health and crafted a treatment plan that fit my lifestyle. I've appreciated the involvement I've been able to have in the decisions we make; it is a very collaborative process! Even before we began implementing my protocol, Taryn's guidance helped me see changes in the reactions that happen in my gut." - Alandra 

  • "The program has dramatically increased my knowledge of my menstrual cycles, including what causes painful periods. Throughout the program, my cramps slowly got better and better until they were completely manageable. This program also helped me realize that it’s okay to have a “bad” meal every now and then; you just need to overcompensate with the good food later!"

  • "Taryn is a great listener and really cares about her client's health. She is so excited to share her knowledge that it is infectious. Her excitement makes you want to try her suggestions and hear more. You are not just a number from a lab result. She cares about the whole you. My food choices are much better now and I feel amazing. My weight and cholesterol both dropped as well. I highly recommend letting Taryn help you too." - Kim

  • "I reached out to Taryn in hopes of learning more about what it means to have a healthier eating lifestyle. I have struggled the past several years with turning to foods that were comforting when I felt any sort of emotion. Taryn helped me to know the difference between emotional vs. physical hunger and how to put that into practice in my daily routines. The guidance and support she offered me through our sessions, direct messaging, and the handouts she provided where so helpful. She was always passionate about knowing how I was doing and how she could be supportive of me. She was always so positive and encouraging, believing in me every step of the way. Having gone through Taryn's program, I feel like I was able to make a true change and be able to have a healthier eating lifestyle. Taryn is remarkable at her trade, and it was a pleasure working with her! I will forever be grateful for the tremendous amount of support she provided me! I feel like a new person!" - Nikki, 33, NC

  • "I had a wonderful experience with Taryn (Healthfully Nourished ). Taryn is supportive, knowledgeable and helpful. She was great at responding to my questions and helping me find information about multiple topics. I was very glad to have found her and after my program I felt significantly better and felt prepared to face challenges in a constructive way." - Kate

  • "Taryn has been extremely helpful to me on my health journey! She was very supportive & educated me on many different aspects of health, nutrition, hormones, & more! I would highly recommend her to friends/family."

  • "Taryn is so sweet and understanding. I was on birth control for ten years and really wanted to learn what was going on with my body to better support myself in the future. I mainly met with Taryn for knowledge and preventative advice to help balance my hormones, understand my gut health and to understand why my body was doing the things it was doing. I often get random small rashes, spikes of anxiety and weird body pains and I was also over trying to solve it alone because my food diary wasn’t getting me the answers I needed. Taryn was great at answering messages and keeping meetings consistent. She is full of knowledge and wants the best for her clients. I also lived being afraid of yet another uti. I guess I was chosen to have chronic utis through my entire life and water, peeing after sex and cranberry pills weren’t doing it. Many Gynos told me the only way was antibiotics and I refused. I learned that low estrogen (which I found out through Taryn I have) can contribute to this and she also provided supplements and information to also fight off pesky utis so I can live my life and travel uti free. All and all, I found out I can maintain these lifestyle changes and I’m looked forward to bettering my routine to help myself long after my time with Taryn has ended. I will admit I wish the program was longer as we didn’t quite get through the entire protocol before our time was up. she has been on a journey with me and it can be nerve wracking to adventure alone. But I definitely am thankful to have beefed up my tool belt on my journey with her. Thank you!" -Brooke, 27

  • "Since starting I have had more energy, noticeable difference in bloating and gas, non-existent back pain and an overall healthier life style!" - Sara

  • "I'm so happy I decided to work with Taryn! Before I started working with her, I considered myself a healthy eater but there is SO much she has taught me about how to fuel my body in the best way possible and to feel my best! I was struggling with some digestion issues that I've already seen great improvement on too. I'm excited to complete the [rest of my personalized] protocol!" -Tori

  • "The most important thing I have learned [from this program] is that progress can be measured in many ways and each one is important. It is not always a number on a scale. It can be your mood, improved complexion, digestive health, enjoying simple moments, etc. it is about gaining a new perspective and putting in the effort to improve your well being." -Kate

  • "I reached out to Taryn because I was dealing with extremely painful menstrual cycles, including excruciating cramps, low energy levels, and headaches. I was tired of my period interrupting my daily life. Medicine didn't help, and I was out of options until my sister recommended Taryn. After my initial meeting with Taryn, I was a little nervous that I wouldn't be able to completely commit to a whole new diet. However, as I began meeting with Taryn, I gained more confidence in my ability to change my diet and my lifestyle. Taryn made sure that my goals were achievable and measurable. In addition, the EatLove app was great for meal planning and keeping up with what I was eating. Taryn was able to give me useful insight into my hormones and how they were contributing to my painful periods. As a result of the program, I am better equipped to make healthy choices that will not only decrease my pain but also make me feel better and more energized overall." - Wesleigh, 23, NC
