Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN) allows us to work in partnership with your body while we explore the most appropriate food and nutrients to keep you functioning well and feeling good. As a Functional Diagnostic Practitioner (FDN-P), my job is to help uncover the underlying contributors to your body’s imbalance. Everyone is different. The one thing we all have in common is this, in “every body,” symptoms are the last thing to occur.
Using functional diagnostic lab testing as appropriate, clinical correlation of symptoms, and a complete holistic process, we uncover the hidden food and chemical triggers, hormone imbalances, compromised immune and organ function, all causing distress within your body. These findings allow us to identify the healing opportunities that will enable your body to engage its innate healing response, build your vital reserves, and resolve the underlying root cause of your symptoms. This process, over time, can restore your health.
It all begins with a comprehensive health history and a conversation exploring your current lifestyle habits: how you eat, how you sleep, how you move your body, and how you cope with everyday stress. As we work together, I’ll explain the different types of lab testing available – the diagnostic tools that offer you a more in-depth look at the function inside your body. Think of it as insider information explicitly designed to help us move more expeditiously, uncovering the hidden stressors that are depleting your vital reserves and contributing to a whole host of symptoms.
