My first post “Health Coach vs. Functional Health Coach” explained the general differences between what is usually considered a health coach and how adding the term functional takes things to a higher level.
So, what about me? I’m a certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner and a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, specializing in helping individuals who suffer from fatigue and digestive issues. I’m trained on using several tools, like signs and symptoms questionnaires, health history, PROPER lab testing, functional body assessments and most importantly, asking YOU the right questions, all to deeply assess your physiological condition and where dysfunction could be showing up and where the root of your health issues could be stemming from. Now I am not a doctor, so I cannot diagnose or treat a specific disease, disorder, or condition. But what I can do it help YOU to heal yourself while treating the body as a WHOLE and doing things that will support every cell, organ, and tissues in your body while also giving special attention to those specific imbalances that are showing up in your body based on the thorough assessments are YOUR specific health issues and physiology.
After the initial assessments, that’s when the real work happens, where I customize a protocol based on the foundations of “D.R.E.S.S. For Health Success”. This covers diet, rest, exercise, stress reductions, and supplements. At this point I offer you support and help coach you through this protocol.
This is a SELF treatment program. Results are not guaranteed but it’s important to understand why. There are two main reasons for this. One, because I have no say in what your body does. The body is extremely complex and even with doctors and other professionals there are always risks and no guarantees. This is no different than seeing any other practitioner. Two, because this being a self treatment program, YOU are in charge of following through with the protocols and advice given. This is why it is necessary to have a HIGH level of commitment going into a health rebuilding program like this. Basically, you reap what you sow. Now while there are no guarantees for those obvious reasons, you are HIGHLY likely to see amazing results. These protocols support every organ, tissue and cell in your body. So now the question is…
Are you willing to do what it takes to support your body in reversing and preventing disease???
