Functional Diagnostic Nutrition

Are you, or someone you care about, sick and tired of being sick and tired? Have you been to doctors and their lab results indicate 'there's nothing wrong with you'? Have you been told 'you'll just have to live with it', 'this is what getting older feels like' or, the very worst: 'it's all in your head'?

Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® is an emerging field and body of work which bridges the gap between clinical nutrition and functional medicine. It is a type of detective work which seeks to identify and correct the underlying causes and conditions which lead to health complaints. It is a model of care which does NOT compete with the medical (allopathic) model of care.

How does it work? Functional laboratory testing is used to identify malfunctions at the subclinical level within the following biological systems: Hormone, Immune, Digestion, Detoxification and Intestinal Barrier. It includes a process of support, analysis and continuous course correction until the body heals and normal function returns to the body system. Drugless protocols and lifestyle modifications are used to support the body's innate healing ability while eliminating overt or covert stressors, including environmental, lifestyle, antigenic, inflammatory and pathogenic stressors.
