Functional Diagnostic Nutrition

Test! Don’t guess.

Functional Diagnostic Nutrition

Functional Diagnostic Nutrition™ (FDN) is a holistic approach that works to seek out, identify and correct the underlying causes and conditions that lead to a person’s main health complaints. FDN is an “Opt-in model of self-care” meaning you are the person in charge of your health and wellness.

I use non-invasive laboratory tests to find hidden internal stressors and their root causes. With this step-by-step method I can assess the functions and pathways of the Hormone, Immune, Digestion, and Detoxification systems. Basically, everything we need to have running smoothly for optimal health.

Why should we test these systems?

When these systems start to malfunction, symptoms present themselves such as:

  • Allergies, acne, and rosacea
  • Blood sugar problems
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Emotional fragility
  • Headaches and fogginess
  • Indigestion and bloating
  • Inflammation and pain
  • Insomnia and wakefulness
  • Low sex drive
  • PMS, skin, and hair problems
  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain and weight loss

If you prefer drug-free, natural solutions to health problems, then stop chasing symptoms and get to the root cause!
