Niki Carr, Nutritionist

niki-carr-photoNiki Carr is a Nutritionist with a Master of Nutrition from the National University of Natural Medicine. While she studied the healing properties in food and how the food we eat affects our health, she noticed many patients couldn’t make those vital changes to their diet without also addressing their relationship with food. Sometimes the pursuit of perfection and preoccupation with food caused so much stress that folks would avoid eating altogether or feel entirely out of control. Moved by this observation, Niki focuses her work on helping people find a harmonious balance with nutrition, through education on a foundation of gentle nutrition that includes a diverse range of enjoyable foods while also considering their unique health needs. With her empathetic and compassionate guidance, Niki equips her clients with tools to challenge and transform their perspectives on food and feel confident in making meal choices every day. Her approach blends together education, behavior change, practical food tips and encouragement.

She has experience working with many chronic illnesses that affect the way the body interacts with food – including diabetes (and other blood sugar balance struggles), high blood pressure, high cholesterol and dyslipidemia. She is well-versed in therapeutic diets like anti-inflammatory diets, autoimmune support, Mediterranean diet, paleo and vegan. She also assists patients with digestion difficulties, like gas, bloating, constipation, IBS, GERD and more. She works with those seeking to prevent disease, or are simply overwhelmed by the never-ending need to feed ourselves many times each day. She enjoys working with folks looking to break free of the diet mentality and make peace with food. She believes each and everybody deserves respectful and responsive medical care and she strives to offer care that is inclusive of all cultures, sizes, and abilities.

When she’s not helping people find clarity on which foods are best for their unique body and lifestyle, she enjoys stand-up paddleboarding, playing ukulele, doing arts and crafts, and playing board games with her family.
