A Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P for short) is trained to identify the underlying root causes and conditions that result in disease instead of simply treating symptoms. Using functional lab work, FDNs recognize patterns of imbalance in the body and identify healing opportunities. We don’t medicate, we educate! We don’t guess, we test! Functional coaching involves a process of investigating and continuous course correction until optimal health is achieved, it is not a quick fix. FDNs build health by addressing the causal factors of disease, instead of merely attempting to silence the symptoms.
Yes! You have malfunctions occurring in your body that are at the root of your health complaints and we can identify them using functional lab work. Most of my patients had no idea what was causing their health complaints…and neither did their doctors! This is because they have been chasing their symptoms for years as most health care providers can’t find the cause or don’t bother to even look for it.

Restoring hormone balance may happen quickly in some people and take more time in others due to how we each respond to our own chronic stress factors.
Most likely, yes! FDN practitioners have helped over 100,000 people reach their best level of health and maintain sustainable health. Many clients have found dramatic decrease in symptoms, even if they were previously diagnosed with chronic medical conditions. You can too!
Unfortunately, the answer will most likely be no unless you have extensive coverage. We are lucky to have free ‘sick-care’ in Canada, but unfortunately the type of care you are offered is limited. There is currently minimal preventative and true ‘health-care’ in the conventional model. As a nurse, I have seen how relying on the conventional model for health can end up in an ever-growing list of diagnoses and pharmaceuticals. Functional health coaching helps you to take control of your health before the need for medical intervention arises.
We are likely a good fit to work together if-
