Caroline Barringer is the Founder and Co-CEO/Director of Immunitrition, Inc. and she served as Vice-President and an active Board of Directors member for 3 consecutive years for the Nutritional Therapy Association (NTA). Caroline is and a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP), NTA East Coast Lead Instructor, Master Certified Healing Foods Specialist (CHFS), Certified GAPS Practitioner (CGP), published health author, international health lecturer, and food rights activist. Her own health challenges led her to many years of study and research relating to the direct connection between diet and the strength of the immune system - a connection, which the world of modern medicine doesn't often consider as a major factor contributing to dis-ease. For the past three years, Caroline has been working closely with Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, author and creator of the Gut and Psychology Syndrome Diet (GAPS Diet), organizing national Certified GAPS Practitioner Trainings. Caroline produced and appeared in the official Cooking with GAPS DVD and she is currently working on several health and wellness projects to be launched in 2014. Caroline's mission is to change the way the world eats through nutrition education, performance, and publication; to help empower individuals to make responsible and healthful food choices for restoring and maintaining a higher quality of life. She shares the long forgotten practice of preparing and consuming whole and cultured foods with others through lectures, certification programs, consultations and printed/recorded materials. She believes that a strong foundation of health is essential to staying disease-free. She is an advocate of Nutritional Therapy, holistic self care, education and growth, where an individual has the right to make their own health decisions based on any health and wellness information available.
