You are a professional "bathroom locator" when you visit anywhere outside of your home
You've been told to "take this pill" to solve your gut symptoms, or even worse that you're "unsolvable"
You've been to countless medical professionals with no resolution or solution to your symptoms
You're exhausted and frankly discouraged by the length of your symptoms, trying lots of things, & all the commitment to time for appointments...
Hi! I am a licensed dietitian nutritionist with an "integrative" or "functional" approach. That means I apply evidence-based nutrition science to support the body as a whole instead of trying to address a single symptom or system. I am also a certified LEAP therapist dietitian, which means I am trained to design and supervise custom elimination diets.
My practice focus areas include: gastrointestinal (GI) conditions such as IBS and IBD; autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthiritis (RA) and Hashimoto's; stubborn weight issues; food sensitivities, and other chronic inflammatory conditions in both adults and children.

I cannot express my gratitude enough for Rhya and the team at Carolina Functional Nutrition. The best part about working with Rhya (aside from her incredible wealth of knowledge, research and science) is that she listens to you. I came to her when I was in the most pain I had been in my life and totally lost on the cause. Doctors told me it was stress, and a gastroenterologist dismissed it as not a cause for concern. Two meetings in with Rhya, she helped me figure out that my poor gut had a
bacterial infection causing a multitude of dysfunction and discomfort. But the good news is it was correctable!
I am typing this free from misery, all thanks to the incredible insight, holistic treatment and life-transforming empowerment of Carolina Functional Nutrition. If you've taken the time to
