Tara Hood, NP, LLC
Welcome to TaraHoodNP.com. I wanted to take a moment to thank you for considering me on your journey to wellness. My own journey has been a long road and very personal to me.
After completing my advanced training as a Family Nurse Practitioner, I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl that developed food allergies, eczema, and asthma within a month of delivery. My second daughter was born twenty six months later had some nursing and latching issues, sensitivity to noise, and speech issues. After the first year of my second daughter’s birthday, I too was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, a autoimmune disorder of the thyroid. Blindly, I started taking medication to “manage” the condition versus trying to understand why it developed in the first place.
My son was born in 2013 and shortly after his first birthday developed autism. Even with my advanced training as a Family Nurse Practitioner, I felt unprepared trying to take care of their own medical issues. I was continuing to go along treating their symptoms and not the root causes of their medical issues. I knew then that I had to change my perception of how I looked at diseases and medical issues. I began to shift my attention away from treating symptoms to treating the root causes that were causing the symptoms to develop in the first place. I wanted to know more, so I could help my children and the masses of children and adults diagnosed with many chronic conditions, such as, autoimmunity, asthma, autism spectrum disorder, allergies, arthritis, ADD/ADHD
My mission in starting Tara Hood, NP, LLC has come from my own journey in helping my family recover from these chronic medical conditions. Providing a truly holistic approach to treatment by utilizing a evidence based functional and integrative medicine approach to the whole person. Wellness and health can be achieved by putting the pieces back together and helping the body work as a whole addressing the gastrointestinal issues, immune system, detoxification, and methylation system to name a few. Incorporating assistive aids, such as probiotics, fish oils, nutraceuticals, homeopathies, and pharmaceuticals.
My goal is to help the body heal and recover from the inside-out. Start your journey to wellness today.
