What is a FDN Practitioner and “METABOLIC CHAOS”?

What is a FDN Practitioner and “METABOLIC CHAOS”?

  • Recovery Bundle“>Do you struggle to reach your health, wellness and fat loss goals? 
  • Do you have unresolved health complaints even though you have tried searching for answers from various doctors?
  • Do you struggle with losing fat weight?  
  • Do you experience slow recovery from workouts?
  • Are you getting slower in life instead of faster?

The struggle is real…chronic fatigue is real…METABOLIC CHAOS is real.

You must learn how to stop the cycle of trial and error!  There is an overwhelming amount of information out there with endless amounts of practitioners with every kind of treatment or remedy.  I learned this personally and share my story in my book on Amazon- LIFE IS NOT A RACE.  Healing and repairing our main health complaints isn’t by taking lab tests and taking supplements.  That approach didn’t work for me and I am sure it won’t work for you either- for the long term.  How much money and time have you spent trying to get answers and feel like yourself again??

The traditional medical approach provides medication based on lab results and surgery.  If you are like me, I was searching for the quick solution to make me feel alive and thriving again… just give me which supplements my body needs to heal and repair itself!  After spending lots of money on supplements, various therapies and treatments, I finally figured out the solution myself.  It was looking at the WHOLE picture and treating the WHOLE individual all together.  The main game changer for me was working on adjusting my attitude and life schedule to slow down, relax and unplug more often.  What you may need is different from what worked best for my health and recovery.  As an FDN Practitioner, we work on filling the gap between what other medical practitioners and doctors were offering clients.

In order to fill the “gap” to help our clients heal, rebuild and recover from “METABOLIC CHAOS”, we stop chasing symptoms and start sorting out our “METABOLIC CHAOS”.  We need to start by identifying healing opportunities with the right tools as functional lab testing, coach up function while we coach down HIDDEN stressors with respect to metabolic individuality.  FDN practitioners acts as healthy detectives and help guide the client to self-treat to heal the WHOLE individual from the inside out.

nstead of chasing symptoms- we work together with clients to identify the underlying conditions by correlating functional lab test results with the client’s main health complaints (clinical correlation) by implementing a therapeutic individualized “DRESS for Health Success” protocol to improve overall health rather than the typical solution of treating only the symptoms.  We can all order functional lab tests online these days but there is not just one lab to use or order.  Many health practitioners order one lab for clients and treat the test results.  In FDN, we order five main labs to help put the pieces of the puzzle together and look at the WHOLE picture instead of being sucked into the “cycle of trial and error” doing test after test.

As a FDN Practitioner, we help identify the main health complaints and correlate with lab results then create an individualized health rebuilding protocol with the “DRESS for Health Success” program.  The body can heal itself with the right natural therapies that will guide the body into building back up the health- we don’t treat anything specifically but treat everything all at once non-specifically.  We may never find out the root cause but we don’t need to as there usually isn’t just one thing that leads to METABOLIC CHAOS.  In order to unravel and solve the METABOLIC CHAOS puzzle, we need to follow as step by step approach to healing and CHRONIC STRESS is a major contributor to our chaos.

We have HIDDEN internal stressors that lead to METABOLIC CHAOS so we need to run functional lab tests to identify healing opportunities that will help guide the body back to “normal” function – a state of ease instead of dis-ease!  In order to restore our health from the inside out, we need to take a different approach and gradually (ideally) the symptoms disappear and complaints are (ideally) resolved.  If not – we take a different approach.

FDN Practitioners repair and restore functions and/or support acquired metabolic inefficiencies so the client heals and rebuilds as needed to feel “normal” again.  We may never discover the “root cause” as we work on healing and rebuilding the WHOLE individual from the inside out by removing as many stressors and contributors to “METABOLIC CHAOS”, while we “coach up” function and support the client’s vital reserve with the individualized “DRESS for HEALTH SUCCESS” protocols.  FDN is a highly individualized process as each client’s journey is unique as we use functional lab work to help identify healing opportunities and to guide therapy. 

The lab tests include saliva, blood, urine and stool samples to provide the most clinical data needed to help evaluate and get a snapshot on the level of function versus dysfunction.  The lab test results will provide us with clinical correlation and pattern recognition for the HIDDEN internal stressors that contribute to “METABOLIC CHAOS”- hormone, immune, digestion, detoxification, energy production and nervous systems.  We interpret the client’s lab results with their genetic potential, history, environment, lifestyle and their current health concerns.  As we progress with the program, we can identify the clinical correlation and see healing opportunities then provide recommendations to educate the client on self-care, commitment and responsibility to taking ownership of their health, well-being, performance and longevity. 

We don’t treat the test results but use the results to treat the WHOLE client.  The client must be motivated and committed to self-care and taking ownership of their healing journey!  We must put the oxygen mask on first before we can help others!  The program requires a 90-day commitment with re-testing every 30-90 days then update as needed until get the body back on course and back to homeostasis! 

The client needs to understand the process and be motivated to commit to the new healing journey as we unravel the METABOLIC CHAOS and bring the back away from dys-function and dis-ease. Stop chasing symptoms
