I've spent the last decade going from my BEST health, to being in my WORST health.  Let me support you to reclaiming your health too!

Hey!   I want to thank you for stopping by.  I am Tara Ivins.  I’m a Board-Certified Functional Wellness Coach, Holistic Health, Personal Fitness Trainer, and founder of Tara Total Wellness.

One day, with strength from GOD, I realized that I have a greater purpose here. So do You!!

I found my way into the Wellness field because, like you, I’ve had my own health journey.

  • Severe childhood asthma

  • Allergies

  • Obesity

  • Anxiety & Depression

  • Lack of Self Worth

  • Acid Re flux

 

 I  had NO energy.

It wasn’t until the year 2009, moving closer to that 3-0 number, when my doctor told me that heart burn was a part of getting older, and began to write me a prescription. At this point I didn’t know much about good nutrition or taking better care of myself, but I did know I wasn’t going to “take a pill” to fix this. So, at that point, the life I had knew began to change, for the good.  I’ve always been fascinated with “HOLISTIC” and decide to learn more about the “stuff” (trust me it wasn’t food) I was putting into my body and how it was making me feel.  I started to eliminate processed foods and fell in love with how I was starting to feel - and look! This was GREAT, I wanted to help everyone experience the same thing! 

Which lead me to studying more about healing the body with food and safe movement.

So, I attended the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and graduated as a Certified Holistic Health Coach. I totally fell in love with what I was learning so I continued my education to learn more on a functional level about the endocrine system, gastric health, and emotional eating. I took the next step to becoming a Board Certified Functional Wellness Consultant under American Natural Wellness Coach Board ... and Here I am!

 

I am always looking to get to the root cause of symptoms that are showing up in someone’s health. Taking a prescription isn’t good enough. To me, taking the time to get to the root cause is.

 

Through my health journey that still continues, it has taught me that we are all truly bio-individuals when it comes to our health and nutrition needs. 

There is NO ONE SIZE FITS ALL.

For the last decade I’ve been able to help individual’s find the foods that work to fuel them through my Three Step HealthConnect program. Simple and customized, built upon a foundation of proper hydrating, detox (based on the elimination diet), rested sleep, and safe movement, designed for YOU.

I am a huge believer in the body was created to heal itself.
