Exploring Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN) and Holistic Health Coaching: Your Journey to Holistic Well-Being

What is Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® (FDN)?

Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® (FDN) is akin to detective work aimed at uncovering the underlying causes and conditions of diseases, rather than merely addressing symptoms. Through functional lab analysis, I identify patterns of imbalance in the body, opening doors to potential healing. I guide each client through a health-building process, leveraging the proven protocols of the D.R.E.S.S. for Health Success® program. This natural, holistic approach consistently delivers the most positive outcomes for my clients. As the founder of FDN aptly puts it, “We don’t medicate; we educate! We don’t guess; we test!”

What is Holistic Health Coaching?

Holistic Health Coaching serves as the bridge between understanding what to do and taking actionable steps. We consider all aspects—mind, body, spirit, lifestyle—rather than merely addressing symptoms. According to The International Coaching Federation, 98% of coaching clients report their collaboration with a coach as a positive, worthwhile investment. My role is to empower you to help yourself! I achieve this by establishing an ongoing partnership and unlocking your potential to lead a healthy, vibrant, and purposeful life. Together, we clarify your vision of optimal health and explore actionable steps to manifest that vision. Enhanced personal accountability and decisive action are essential components in attaining and maintaining your goals. My approach is adaptable and tailored to your unique needs, emphasizing the significance of bio-individuality.


Each of us is a unique individual. Recognizing and respecting our individuality is pivotal for health and happiness. Have you ever heard the saying, “One man’s food is another man’s poison”? It holds true! I understand that there’s no universally perfect diet or lifestyle. Every individual has specific health requirements influenced by age, gender, size, and lifestyle. Even blood type plays a role in bio-individuality! Let’s embark on a journey to determine what works best for you by investigating the root causes.

Root Cause Resolution

Our focus lies in healing the root causes rather than chasing symptoms. This approach encourages contemplation of the potential “upstream” factors contributing to “downstream” signs, symptoms, and diagnoses. While we may not always identify the exact root cause, our journey will uncover numerous opportunities for healing. In the words of Andrea Nakayama, “Instead of rushing to address the roots, consider that healthy roots cannot thrive or heal in unhealthy soil. The more we tend to the soil, the more those roots may regenerate and even heal on their own.
