an•ces•tral - pertaining to ancestors; descending or claimed from ancestors

An Ancestral Approach to nutrition and lifestyle involves respecting the innate intelligence of our ancestors when it comes to food and day-to-day life.

As a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner Carolyn's passion is to educate others on the importance of a whole-food, ancestral diet to their overall health.


The 7 pillars of an Ancestral Approach are:

1. A Properly Prepared Whole Food Diet
2. Movement
3. Sleep
4. Optimal Body Function
5. Time in Nature
6. Non-Toxic Environment
7. Community – Connecting with your family and friends

What Clients Say

The RESTART Program has really kick started my commitment to achieving a healthy weight and blood work.

Kathy W, PA

The RESTART Program is a great way to break out of old bad habits while learning the way the body processes food. You’ll be motivated by the changes you feel in yourself to continue with the hard work you’ve been putting in to make these better lifestyle changes.

Erica C, PA

After my summer of fun, food & wine filled weekends I was looking to get back on track with some healthy eating habits and decided to jump in with the restart program. I just needed a few good solid weeks to “RESTART” and get back on track and this program really did the trick. It was a really positive experience for me and I learned an entirely new way of looking at the foods I consume. The results were fabulous too!! My increased energy level, better sleeping patterns, and significant weight lose were just a few of the benefits I experienced. The best part though was the support I had through the entire process. Carolyn is so passionate about her work and helping others learn all the benefits of eating healthy that she was constantly available to me providing information and advice the entire time. From recipes, to grocery shopping tips and just straight up encouragement. It was really a great experience all around.

At the second meting we review the findings and provide your personalized recommendations including diet, movement, sleep, and lifestyle changes.

Essential Oils Education

Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds extracted and distilled from plants for health benefits. The oils are powerful and potent when properly sourced and processed. I recommend only Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils to my client so they have the peace of mind there has been nothing added or removed – simply pure plant magic. Carolyn offers free educational workshops for how essential oils can support a variety of wellness concerns – from digestion, immune support, allergies, sleep, stress, mental health and more. Contact Carolyn today to schedule your free essential oils class!
