Functional Diagnostic Nutrition: FDN uses the principles of Functional Medicine and functional lab testing to identify internal stressors, nutritional deficiencies and hidden health trends. Through releasing, restoring and rebuilding, your body can come back into balance. FDN is like the bridge between self care and the medical doctor. We take into account your full health history and use functional lab testing, to identify underlying causes as to why your body may be out of balance.

FDN is a non medical approach, rather than just treating symptoms, we are like detectives looking for hidden stressors. According to Reed Davies “Symptoms are the last thing to appear in a disease process”. So, whether you need support for specific issues or you just want a health check, FDN can help you.

Often symptoms and imbalances take a long time to become visible to us. The body talks to us by presenting small health niggles (you know the ones you think are normal) headaches to bloating, fatigue to pain, before we know it, we are diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, chronic fatigue or other illnesses. We could be told that our illnesses are incurable, we just have to live with them. They may be incurable but it can be possible to put them in remission, lots of people have through nutrition and lifestyle.

The traditional medical model works on diagnosis and the management of symptoms. This might work for simple infections but when it comes to chronic illness is it very disheartening to hear there is nothing you can do. A Doctors appointment is only 10 minutes long, too short to offer full integrative advice for your health and wellbeing.

Functional Diagnostic Nutrition works with your body as a whole. We work with a 5 pillar health system using the principles of Functional Medicine we constantly ask Why? Why have you got this illness and What are the underlying causes? By clearing these imbalances in the body you can enjoy better health and wellbeing.

Our bodies are innately intelligent and have the ability to heal and keep everything working well. However, stress, toxicity, viruses, parasites, nutritional deficiencies, bacterial imbalances, infections and even emotional stress can cause the body to go into imbalance, the more imbalanced we become, the more symptoms we manifest.
