What is functional diagnostic nutrition?
Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® is a science-based holistic approach to investigating and identifying the root cause of your health problems.
This health care approach addresses the whole person, not just focusing and trying to cover up symptoms. Imbalances and weaknesses in the body can lead to a host of symptoms, such as digestive issues, migraines, fatigue, excess weight, and hormone imbalances.
FDN believes in a partnership between the client and the practitioner to empower the client in understanding their body and how they can heal naturally. It uses individualized functional lab testing shipped straight to your home to provide us insight into how your body is working and how we can strategize our approach so you are not simply guessing and spinning your wheels. A personal strategy is recommended to heal the body from within using therapeutic and personalized diets, sleep hygiene, exercise recommendations, stress reduction strategies and targeted supplementation.
This approach is a part of my comprehensive training and services available for you.

How often do I need to see you
This is individual and varies based on goals and current condition.
For those with chronic symptoms I will often recommend the 4-month health transformational program which gives us the opportunity to work together over a period of 4 months which is a great way to get started.
How soon will I see results
This can be very individual and based off of your current condition and commitment to the program. Healing naturally can take time, for some conditions on average of 3 months for other more serious conditions this may take 10+ months.
This does not mean you will not start to feel better! We work to help provide you relief and results quickly, most people start to feel better within a few weeks.
Do you offer in-person appointments
Yes, I have office hours available for those in the Fort Collins, Colorado area to visit in person
Do you offer phone and skype appointments?
Yes, these appointments are available to anyone, anywhere!
All of your resources can be mailed to your home and through email. This option is wonderful for those that do not live nearby, do not want to have drive and travel to the office, and those who do not feel well enough to leave their home.
Do you offer a free pre-consultation call?
Yes, I offer a free 20 minute appointment so that you can tell me your story, what your goals are, and can learn more about how I work and how I may be able to help you.
There is no obligation with this consultation call, however agreeing to this appointment does come with $30 no-show fee if the appointment is missed and not rescheduled within 24 hours before.
I want to have respect for both your time and mine!
Will you accept my insurance?
I do not directly with insurance companies. Many of the lab testing options provided can be covered by insurance, however this is your responsibility to submit and talk with your insurance company beforehand to see if it will be covered.
Some flexible insurance plans will help cover consultations, supplements, or testing, however it is up to you to become informed on your coverage and submit any information needed.
