Resolve your individual case of “METABOLIC CHAOS”

FDN Health Detective Services


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. https://www.functionaldiagnosticnutrition.com

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:

  • Hormone
  • Immune
  • Digestion
  • Detoxification
  • Energy Production
  • Nervous Systems

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!

We run well-chosen functional labs and begin our investigation

Stress and hormone profile

  • Assess H-P-A Axis Dysfunction Cortisol dysregulation
  • Circadian rhythm problems Cortisol/Catabolic Dominance Sex hormone imbalances
  • Vital reserve snapshot
  • Cortisol, DHEA Estrogens, Progesterone Testosterone Melatonin
  • Provides snapshot of overall vital reserve, guides/directs therapy, points to areas for deeper investigation, baseline to monitor changes
  • Documents Metabolic Chaos®

Cost: 

  1. Biohealth 205a = $212
  2. Dutch Hormone Panel Test = $399

Metabolic Assessment Profile

  • Documents Metabolic Chaos®
  • Assess Gut, Toxicity, Liver Maldigestion, dysbiosis
  • Oxidative stress, free radicals
  • Poor detoxification, enterohepatic circulation
  • Indican
  • Lipid Peroxides
  • Urinary Bile Acid Sulfates
  • Identifies multiple healing opportunities, areas that need improvement, and direct measurement of liver congestion
  • Results of… and contributors to… Metabolic Chaos®

Cost: 

Biohealth 101 Metabolic Assessment Test = $155

Intestinal Permeability

  • Assess Mucosal Barrier Function Nutrient assimilation, penetration Immune system
  • Villi integrity Hyper-permeability Dysbiosis, Pathology
  • A healthy mucosal barrier protects the very sensitive inside of our bodies from the toxic outside world.
  • Documents Metabolic Chaos®

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!

Cost: 

Biohealth Intestinial Permeability Test (Leaky Gut) = $110

 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®

Cost: 

  1. Biohealth 401H Pathogen Test = $275
  2. GI Map Pathogen Testing = $359

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®

“Lab results are not the problem; they are the result of the problem” ~ Reed

Cost: 

MRT Leap Food Sensitivity Test:  $335

Chronic Stress-Related Dysfunctions

  • Symptoms & Lab Values
  • HPA axis and adrenal dysfunction
  • Cortisol dysregulation, circadian rhythm problems Hormone dynamics and imbalances
  • Poor nutrient breakdown and absorption Pro-oxidant vs. antioxidant imbalances
  • Sluggish liver, Detoxification
  • Dysbiosis and gut malfunction
  • Antigenic overload and pathogenic conditions Bacteria and yeast overgrowth
  • Biofilm, Biotoxins
  • Inflammation, Immunodeficiency

“We identify healing opportunities and apply wellness principles” ~ Reed

Step 2: Create a Program

  • Address Metabolic Chaos® with lab-guided drugless protocols & unique behavior program
    • Diet
    • Rest
    • Exercise
    • Stress Reduction
    • Supplements
  • DRESS for Health Success® Program
  • Coach up function, coach down contributors to Metabolic Chaos®, observe and correct course, expect health to return or vital voids are revealed

FDN Works Because of Sound Principles…

  • We do not diagnose or treat anything specifically- instead we address everything non- specifically
  • We identify your unique healing opportunities and remove as many of contributors to your case of “Metabolic Chaos®” as possible, revealing the basic systems that are actually failing or dysfunctional
  • 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 we coach up the WHOLE you from the inside out and coach down the stressors- your metabolic pathways are gradually restored, and you regain optimal health (homeostasis) to feel your best again!
  • Don’t you want to improve the aging process and thrive each day in life?  If you could feel even better… don’t you want to improve the quality of life if you could control it? 

“General principles of health building outperform specific treatments” ~ Reed Davis, founder of FDN

Step three:  We run your individualized program

  • 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 measures—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” ~ Reed Davis, founder FDN Practitioners
