Functional Diagnostic Nutrition




What is Functional Diagnostic Nutrition?

Functional Diagnostic Nutrition is an emerging field and body of work that bridges the gap between clinical nutrition and functional medicine. FDN is a type of detective work that seeks to identify and correct the underlying causes and conditions that lead to common (and sometimes not-so-common) health complaints. With Functional Diagnostic Nutrition, the goal is not to diagnose or treat any disease, but instead identify the root cause of physiological imbalances in the body that result in dysfunction.

Common Health Complaints/Symptoms addressed by the Functional Diagnostic Approach:

Weight gain and weight loss
Allergies, acne, and rosacea
Blood sugar problems
Digestive Discomfort
Depression and anxiety
Emotional fragility
Headaches, migraines and fogginess
Indigestion and bloating
Inflammation and joint pain
Insomnia/ sleep issue and wakefulness
Low sex drive / poor libido
PMS, skin, and hair problems
Menstruation irregularities

The FDN approach is designed to assess underlying metabolic functions and discover the root cause of your health problems (symptoms). This natural approach leads to long-term resolution of symptoms, not just temporary relief.

FDN has developed a unique partnership with BioHealth Lab. Using functional lab testing and assessments, Teri Dale will coach you through these 4 areas of health.
