Treating symptoms doesn't get to the bottom of your health issues. Together we will work to find the underlying cause(s) of your symptoms and develop protocols so you can heal yourself
"Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® (FDN) is a methodology used to build and maintain health. We have no interest in diagnosing or treating disease. Instead, we investigate underlying causes of unwanted conditions including lifestyle, the environment and individual weak links in metabolism. We are very interested in dysfunction and imbalances within the hormone, immune, digestion and detoxification systems and the application of all-natural protocols that work non-specifically. By coaching up function in these areas we find many symptoms and diseases simply disappear over time as health and normal function are restored.
The D.R.E.S.S. for Health Success® protocols have an effect on each cell, tissue, organ and system (the entire organism), strengthening weak links in metabolism and restoring healthy function. In thousands of cases we've proven that general principles of health building can outperform specific treatments. In other words, by treating nothing specifically and everything non-specifically we can reasonably expect an unwanted health condition to improve, or even go away completely, as long as the downward spiral of the disease-process is not so contracted that observations we make cannot be capitalized upon.
The concept of non-specific treatment is well-established in the alternative health space and standard medicine acknowledges the many benefits. Forgetting or ignoring the ideal of non-specific treatment often leads to searching for anecdotes about specific conditions, especially in resistant cases when the principles of health building have not been applied for long enough or earnestly enough to have the desired effects.
A clue that you are headed down this frustrating road is when you find yourself asking "Has anyone ever had a client with XYZ condition" for any reason other than curiosity or camaraderie. There is nothing wrong with asking the question as long as you remember a.) you are not treating that condition, and b.) there is no way to know if the anecdotal solution will work for your client. And that may be the crux of the matter.
The reason general principles of health building outperform specific treatments is partly due to the biochemical individuality of the people we are trying to help. Each person has a different history, inborn and acquired weak links in metabolism, dysfunctions, imbalances, deficiencies, stressors, environment, point-of-view and so on.
What worked for one person may not work for the next and, indeed, may make a third person worse! By staying true to our health building principles and trusting the outcome to strict application of them, we can help 100% of the people we work with, regardless of the unwanted health condition." ~ Reed Davis, Founder of Functional Diagnostic Nutrition®

If you go to your doctor with the above complaints, he will probably run some labs. Based on those labs he will give you prescriptions to treat those symptoms. She may even tell you that the labs came back "normal" and there is nothing wrong with you. That is frustrating and leaves you still feeling poorly! You KNOW it's not in your head. You know there is something going on with your health but how do you figure out what is causing your symptoms and how do you go about getting rid of them?
You can look up information online which will probably tell you to take certain supplements, but how do you know if they will do anything? I guess you can spend some money and give it a shot. If it works, great. If not, I suppose you'll try a different supplement.
What you're really doing is shooting in the dark, hoping something will help. The problem is you are chasing symptoms and not seeking the underlying cause(s) of those symptoms. Until you know the root cause(s) you'll never really improve your health.
As an FDN Practitioner, I look at everything going on in your body and in your life. Most health issues these days are caused by poor food choices, stress, lack of sleep, exercise (lack of, or, too much - both are problematic). We examine your eating habits, your sleep habits, how you handle stress, and what exercise, if any you are doing.
Once we've analyzed the lab results and your intake forms we put together a program specifically for you that addresses the 5 pillars of health - Diet, Rest, Exercise, Stress Reduction, and Smart Supplementation.
We will spend up to 90 minutes going over the results and the DRESS protocol with you and we will meet periodically to check on your progress and make tweaks as necessary.
This process could take 3 months to a year, maybe longer depending on how long you have been having health issues and what the underlying cause(s) are. Periodically you will re-run some of the labs to make sure we are solving the underlying issues.
I want to thank you for working with me on my health. I can’t say enough as to how good I feel. You have been training me for 4 years and I have made great progress but seemed to have plateaued over the last year.
I’ve always had stomach issues and never put gut health with overall health. It has only been 3 months since I started your Functional Health Coaching program and I’ve already lost 9 pounds and I am getting more defined in my abs.
These changes have happened since we did lab work and you designed a diet and supplementation protocol for me to follow.
I’ve been able to stop taking an acid-reflux medication and a cholesterol-lowering drug because of the program you designed for me.
In addition, my energy and mood have definitely improved and I continue looking forward to better health. Thanks again for all that you do and keep up the good work.

If you are struggling to bring some healthy habits back into your life I have the perfect solution. I highly recommend you contact Dave Randolph This guy and his wonderful wife, Cheryl, just changed my life. I have lost 43 pounds and enough inches to drop 4 pant/dress sizes. The Bigger benefit is that I can walk a flight of stairs without being out of breath and I can pretty much do anything else I want to do and do it comfortably. I feel great and I feel strong.
This is by far the #1, best thing I have ever done for myself.
I know you would feel the same. Don't let yourself and those that love you down .... Choose to be healthy!
I have tried several different diet/exercise plans before working with Dave. Ultimately I think I had failed at those other places because there was a fundamental lack of accountability. Dave provided the accountability that ultimately led me to a healthier era of my life. It has been one of the most successful weight last endeavors that I have undergone. I highly recommend it to anybody who is trying to juggle work life and personal development. Dave is a friend and mentor and I thank him for his diligence.
