FDN Health Coaching Services
Resolve your individual case of “METABOLIC CHAOS”
Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® (FDN) is a methodology used to recover and maintain
the best health possible. We investigate underlying causes of unwanted conditions
including lifestyle, the environment and individual weak links in metabolism.
Let’s work together to collect clues and put the pieces of the puzzle together to help you restore your health and vitality from the inside out by optimizing the function of every cell, tissue, organ and body system.
Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® is NOT about diagnosing or treating anything specific. Instead we use general health building strategies that will outperform any specific treatment. The FDN Practitioner investigation process offer only one diagnosis— METABOLIC CHAOS!
You are probably wondering “what is METABOLIC CHAOS?”
Metabolic chaos® is a state of health that exists because of complexities in one’s metabolism and underestimated influences from the environment; so correlation between the symptoms and cause is unpredictable. One clue of metabolic chaos® is when intervention, based on a traditionally reliable cluster of symptoms, produces only a marginal therapeutic response. Metabolic chaos® is responsible for symptoms that would otherwise be ascribed to other causes. Contributors to metabolic chaos® can be inborn, but they can also come from hidden stressors in the world today.
We use a Three Step process to resolving your “METABOLIC CHAOS”.
The FDN 3-step Process
Step 1: Assess
We assess your “Metabolic Chaos®” by running well chosen functional labs to identify your healing opportunities and malfunctions within the HIDDEN internal stressors:
We start our investigation into your HIDDEN stressors & malfunctions underlying most chronic health complaints!
Be aware that the test results are NOT the problem and we do NOT treat the test results or your symptoms… rather we use the results to provide us with insights into your problems and into the areas that need improvement (rebalancing, rebooting and restoring) as well as using the data to reveal a pathway to reducing CHAOS and restore order so that your optimal health and vitality returns!
5 Functional Labs to begin our investigation
We start our investigation into your HIDDEN stressors & malfunctions underlying most chronic health complaints
1.1 Stress and hormone profile

- Documents Metabolic Chaos®
a. Biohealth 205a = $212
b. Dutch Hormone Panel Test = $399
1.2 Metabolic Assessment Profile
- Documents Metabolic Chaos®
- Assess Gut, Toxicity, Liver Maldigestion, dysbiosis
- Oxidative stress, free radicals

- Identifies multiple healing opportunities, areas that need improvement, and direct measurement of liver congestion
- Results of and contributors to your Metabolic Chaos®
Biohealth 101 Metabolic Assessment
Test = $155
1.3 Intestinal Permeability Test
- Elevated lactulose, mannitol recoveries suggest overall increased permeability between and through the intestinal epithelial cells.
- Paracellular permeability (between the cells) can result in macromolecules, toxins and antigens crossing the intestinal barrier into the lymph & circulatory systems, a condition termed “leaky gut. “
- This increases load on the body’s detoxification system and may stimulate immune reactivity, IBD, arthritis, depression, mental clarity and other inflammatory conditions.
- Decreased mannitol may mean damaged villi in passage of normal particles across the barrier, resulting in poor nutrition.
- Multiple healing opportunities!
Biohealth Intestinal Permeability
Test (Leaky Gut) = $110
1.4 GI Pathogen Screening
- Assess Pathology, Dysbiosis, Overgrowth, Infestation
- Stool Culture, Microscopy, Tri-chrome Stain Stool Antigen testing
- C. Diff Toxins, Occult Blood, H. pylori antigen
- Identify pathogens, overgrowth & biofilms that prevent healing and contribute to Metabolic Chaos®
a. Biohealth 401H
Pathogen Test = $275
b. GI Map Pathogen Testing = $359
1.5 Oral Intolerance Testing
- Food sensitivity testing tells us much more about a person than which foods to avoid
- Up to 170 reactivities
- Avoid consuming for 3 months Re-introduce one-at-a-time
- Secrets to unraveling Metabolic Chaos®
MRT Leap Food Sensitivity Test = $335
METABOLIC TYPING DIET
Metabolic Typing Diet: “Metabolic Typing® (MT) is a revolutionary system that addresses each person at a fundamental metabolic level, allowing for increased energy, weight loss and greater resistance to disease.
There isn’t a single diet that is ideal for everyone due to variations in:
- Local produce
- Environmental conditions
- Individual metabolism variances due to SNS vs. PNS dominance
“The modern science of metabolic typing® utilizes various methods for identifying peoples’ biochemical individuality and determining their dietary needs. A primary method is the interpretation of “body language,” or the evaluation of any number of the hundreds of different traits and characteristics that make one person distinct from another in terms of:
- physical appearance
- anatomical or structural traits
- psychological characteristics
- personality and behavioral traits
- food reactions and dietary preferences
“Believe it or not, all your highly individualized characteristics have biochemical correlates. In other words, they are a direct result of the unique way in which your regulatory (or homeostatic) control systems are designed.”
We all have genetically inherited strengths or weaknesses (or imbalances) in our:
- autonomic nervous system
- carbo-oxidative system
- lipo-oxidative system
- endocrine system

Step 2: Create a Program
We customize your own “D.R.E.S.S. For Health Success” Program with lab guided and individualized “The WHOLESTIC Method” behavior protocols. In creating your program, we identify your unique healing opportunities and remove as many of the contributors to your case of “Metabolic Chaos®” as possible, revealing the basic systems that are actually failing or dysfunctional.
DRESS for Health Success® Program
- Stress Reduction
Throughout our healing and rebuilding journey together, we work on nurturing these main body functions at a cellular level (improving every tissue, organ and body system), while we provide the right support to your “areas of opportunities” (weak links) that are a part of your own Metabolic Chaos®.
As your coach, the goal is to help you gradually restore your metabolic pathways, and help you regain your optimal health (homeostasis) and transform the WHOLE you from the inside out!
Step 3: FDN Health Coaching Process
We run your individualized FDN Health Coaching Process. We coach up your body functions/systems, while we coach down your contributors to your “METABOLIC CHAOS”. We correct course as needed as you continue your journey in restoring, healing and rebuilding the WHOLE you— until you reach your optimal self and your ‘casual factors” are resolved.
Keep in mind, your unique “root cause” may never be known as symptoms are far removed from the actual cause(s)— but that doesn’t impact your healing journey!
The root cause undetectable; it may be very far removed from what we may predict or even measure— which is why we treat the WHOLE you all at once and treat nothing specific as the WHOLE body works together.
We can create a positive effect upon it when you know what steps to take with your individualized “DRESS for Health Success” Protocol.
Healing occurs when the healing process is focused on identifying and removing contributors to Metabolic Chaos® and supporting function through corrective behavior and natural therapies
