Most health, nutrition, and weight loss programs are incomplete. They lack crucial factors needed to not only get results but make those results last a lifetime. CNK helps identify and address underlying health issues, and make healthy living delicious and doable, so it’s sustainable.
What Does a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® (FDN) Practitioner Do?
As a Certified FDN® Practitioner, I use functional labs to identify the reason behind your symptoms and then address these root causes with dietary improvements, bioenergetics, lifestyle modifications, customized supplement protocols, and compliance-focused coaching.
Identify Root Causes — Test, Don’t Guess
Functional labs are crucial for restoring health as they not only eliminate symptoms at the source but provide correlation to confirm your health complaints (no, it’s not “in your head”), program customization and a baseline for tracking progress (you’ll not only feel better but have physical proof). Labs also save time, money and frustration by taking out the “guess work.” Without labs, many root causes go undetected.
When you experience weight gain, fatigue, digestive issues or any other symptoms of malfunction in the body, I ask “why?” If you’ve got a splinter, don’t just put a band-aid over it. Get the splinter out and find the root cause so you don’t get infected. My goal isn’t to help you get by and survive, but to get well and thrive!
Heal The Body — Diet, Lifestyle & Supplements
I focus on healing the body with a nutrient-dense daily diet, healthier lifestyle habits (sleep, exercise, stress reduction), and additional supplements for support. Imbalances in one area affect all areas of the body, which is why we view the body as a whole. We remove any contributors to poor health (toxins, pathogens, food sensitivities, etc.) and support optimal function (hormones, digestion, detoxification, etc.) This well-rounded approach provides the building blocks your body needs to heal and repair.
Compliance-Focused Coaching — Delicious + Doable = Sustainable
I work with you to make healthy eating delicious and lifestyle changes doable. Together, we create an enjoyable program that fits your schedule so it’s sustainable. This style of coaching educates and empowers you to take charge of your health now and for the rest of your life. In addition, I support you each step of the way by providing encouragement, tracking progress and making adjustments as needed.
The combination of functional lab tests (proof of underlying causes), effective coaching (understanding the importance behind the suggested changes) and sustainable habits (delicious and doable), are all crucial for client compliance. The more compliant you are with the program, the better results you get.
