Hi! Welcome to my Ancestral Approach to nutrition and Life. I'm Carolyn, a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, mama of 3, wife, lover of food and all things natural wellness.
Before I tell you a little about my story, I'm curious, do you want to...
reduce sugar cravings?
wake up feeling refreshed and energized?
naturally manage your acid reflux, diarrhea, constipation and PMS?
discover natural solutions that actually work in supporting your health needs - like healthy, vibrant skin, better sleep, supporting upset stomach, allergies, or emotions?
be inspired to make lasting changes to your day-to-day lifestyle for a vibrant, healthy life?
stop counting calories and weighing your food to reach your goals?
If you said yes to any of these questions, I got you because I am you!
A little about me…I began my health journey after my son turned one year old. My husband and I always thought we were eating healthy and that we were healthy. But after trying a 30-day whole food reset diet (think paleo) we felt unbelievably amazing.
For me, a life time of eczema issues cleared up seemingly overnight. My IBS (undiagnosed, but I had alternating diarrhea and constipation for years) was no longer an issue. I was in my mid-20’s carrying Imodium and Tums around just in case! I was also seriously addicted to sugar. Like, eat a whole bag of cookies or pint of ice cream in one sitting, addicted. After changing our diet, I noticed my sugar cravings, PMS, anxiety and mood swings diminished significantly. After eliminating common allergens like wheat, dairy, soy, and legumes, I no longer needed either over the counter meds for constipation and diarrhea. Simply by changing my diet. That’s it!
Today, we follow a whole food, nutrient dense template including fresh vegetables, some fruit, local meat, raw dairy (milk and cheese) and eggs, nuts and seeds, and seafood. We realize life is too short to be too dogmatic about food so when we are out and about we do the best we can with our food choices and don't stress over those choices. Think 80/20 rule - 80% of the time we eat high quality food, 20% of the time we loosen the reigns within our own bio-individual needs. This came after years of healing though, which is what I help my clients achieve - remove the stressors, strengthen the defenses, reintroduce foods and enjoy life all along the way. It's an empowering process of education, self awareness and healing.
Through this experience, my passion for nutrition was born and I decided to pursue a career in nutritional therapy.
And now, here I am, helping folks like you begin, or continue, on their journey to better health.
So, what do you say? Let's get started!
What Clients Say…
I highly recommend Carolyn’s guidance and insight as a nutritional educator. She presented to my cleanse group last night and today I’m reflecting on the content and applying it to my food choices. Carolyn is a great resource and educator. What a gift to our community!
I have to write a huge thank you to Carolyn Marotta. After 2 years of trying to figure out what is wrong with my stomach, it took her maybe 2 months to figure out what was preventing my tummy from getting better. I would recommend her to anyone who is need of a smart, friendly, helpful and caring nutritionist who really loves what she does!
The RESTART Program has really kick started my commitment to achieving a healthy weight and blood work.
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.
