MEET OUR FDN® PRACTITIONERS

We use your body’s data to recommend diet, rest, exercise, stress reduction, and supplement modifications.
We call this the D.R.E.S.S. for Health Success® protocol, and it could be the key to optimizing your health.

OUR MISSION

The Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® program has been producing elite health coaches since 2008. We’re the oldest health coaching program in the industry, and that experience shows in the quality of our practitioners. When you choose FDN®, you know exactly what you’re going to get.

It's time to take care of you.

It’s really hard to take care of other people or achieve your personal or professional goals when you’re exhausted, moody, and overwhelmed.

Tummy troubles, hormone imbalances, thyroid issues, and more can get in the way of looking and feeling your best.

Our FDN®s have seen it all.  We know that all dysfunction comes from Metabolic Chaos®, and we have the tools to teach you how to reverse most of your symptoms.  When you take care of yourself,  you can take care of everything else you want to do in life.

OUR ADVISORY BOARD

Meet the FDN® Advisory Board. We give expert counsel on the issues that matter to you. With countless years of combined Functional Nutrition experience, they’re passionate about leading the FDN® community professionals. And you’ll get an entire team working on your case.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We’ve been where you are. We became certified FDN® practitioners because we couldn’t find any answers in traditional medicine for our chronic health complaints. We struggled with fatigue that kept us from being present with our families and friends. We had insomnia that left us sobbing into the pillow at night. We had frustrating weight gain despite eating a low calorie or low carbohydrate diet. We had embarrassing digestive complaints that impacted our relationships with others.  We developed weird food sensitivities that left us feeling like we couldn’t eat more than five or six boring foods. In short, we understand you completely. And we know how to help.

After your free qualifying call, you’ll select the practitioner that you want to work with and you’ll book your first appointment. Meanwhile, your functional laboratory tests will be ordered and sent to your home or place of business. Over the course of a week or so, you’ll receive at-home testing kits that look for irregularities in your hormones, digestion, and energy. You’ll get clear instructions on how to take your tests and send them to the labs. During this time, you’ll also be filling out some comprehensive intake forms so we can learn everything we can about your health history. You’ll meet once with your FDN® to get acquainted and to discuss your health history. It takes about 2 weeks for all of your lab results to be processed, and when all of the data is in, you’ll meet with your FDN® again for your Results and Recommendations session. You’ll get four more sessions with your FDN® as you learn to apply our signature DRESS for Health Success® protocol. By the end of six sessions, most clients are feeling pretty good. But you’ll always have the option to add more sessions.

We love our doctors. In fact, there are FDNS® that are doctors. But traditional medical care excels at acute care, not chronic unexplained imbalances. There are no pills or procedures for restoring balance to a body in Metabolic Chaos. Your doctor has been excellently trained in medicine, and we don’t do medicine. We simply look for hidden stressors in the body. We have the time and flexibility to explore these hidden stressors with you. Your doctor likely doesn’t. The labs we run are not covered by insurance, and since we are health coaches and not medical or nutrition professionals, we don’t take insurance. Insurance companies like it when every symptom and issue fits in a neat little code or box, and we know the body is a lot more complicated than that. We have the knowledge and the flexibility to go deeper into your body’s imbalances. We get to do what your doctor likely longs to do- teach you how to be healthy. 

Generally, insurance only covers standard lab work ordered by your physician and most functional labs used by FDN® Practitioners are not covered by insurance.  When you hire an FDN® professional, you are “self-testing” and are paying “out-of-pocket”.  Experience indicates that Health Savings Accounts (HSA) are easy to use and cover not only most labs fees, but also some supplements and even adjunctive therapies such as massage, chiropractic, acupuncture, etc.  Some functional lab companies accept payment from Health Savings Accounts for lab fees and supplement expenses. HSA debit cards are easily attained by visiting www.HSAbank.com.  All monies you deposit in your HSA account are spent as “pre-tax” dollars and may provide additional tax benefits.  In the long run, this method of paying for health-related expenses can amount to greater savings than applying for insurance reimbursement, and certainly less hassle.  We hope you find this information helpful and understand that your health is the best investment you can possibly make.

You’re worried you’re beyond help. We get it. We’re here to tell you that we’ve seen it all. We have worked with tens of thousands of men and women just like you. We’ve walked with clients through crushing insomnia, zero energy, explosive diarrhea, a dormant libido, chronic infection, hormone irregularities, heavy metal issues, mold toxicity, and more. We’ve seen issues way more intense than those, too. We don’t fix anything. We simply sleuth out the hidden stressors that are contributing to a state of “dis-ease” in the body. We provide you the tools to achieve health and vitality. We call this an opt-in model of self care.  And it works pretty well (testimonials). 

Our goal is to deliver the most possible value to customers. That’s why our founder, Reed Davis, and the entire FDN® team have poured thousands of hours into making this program truly incredible. We also have an extremely low withdrawal rate, signaling that just about everyone is satisfied with their experience. Of course, premium service means paying a premium price: ${price} + a $250 deposit. 

 

Additionally, we offer a 14-day cancellation policy to reduce your risk. All you have to do is contact us before your first session and labs.
