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! -Kylie
I am so thankful that I found Rhya! I had struggled with gut and digestion issues nearly my entire adult life. After multiple visits to GI doctors, I was simply informed I had IBS and needed to restrict my diet. Unsatisfied with this diagnosis, I discovered Carolina Functional Nutrition. Within 6 months of working with Rhya, my "IBS" symptoms had nearly completely disappeared and I was no longer restricted in my diet. Rhya is incredibly knowledgeable and supportive and also kept my entirely informed throughout the process (why we were doing certain tests, what the treatments were addressing, etc.). I would HIGHLY recommend Rhya and CFN to anyone who wants to improve their health and well-being! -Brian
Rhya was a total game changer for me! I had spent years going to various providers in search of answers for and relief from
persistent skin and digestive issues. I was told everything from "try this medicine" to "this steroid cream could help" to "maybe a
dairy free and gluten free diet would make a difference". Nowhere along the way was I able to get a clear answer of what was the
root cause in my body nor sustainable remedies that actually helped. I was so frustrated - until I sat down with Rhya. She listened intently to every point I described, took everything into
consideration and was FINALLY able to pinpoint the multi-faceted cause of my constellation of symptoms. Her approach is respectful, non-judgemental and realistic. I trust her and am so grateful for her help and support." -Kathleen
