FDN – a case study

Background

Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN) seeks to identify causes of ill health and has an amazing success rate in resolving symptoms.

FDN may be useful to you if you continue to suffer from:

  • Weight loss issues
  • In-ability to build muscle
  • Low energy
  • Low mood
  • Hot flushes
  • Bad sleep
  • Anxiety

FDN focuses on restoring normal function within the main pillars of health; the hormonal, digestive, immune and detoxification systems. Clients benefit from non-invasive laboratory work that will help to uncover blocking factors at the root of dysfunction, imbalances and resultant lack of wellbeing.

Out of nearly 100 clients, I would suggest the use of functional laboratory work to approximately 70%. The tests are non-invasive and provide me with a wealth of information to understand how your hormones, for example cortisol released from the adrenal glands, are affecting you. Imbalances with hormones can easily remain undetected. As a qualified FDN practitioner I do not seek to diagnose or treat, I find healing opportunities to improve the quality of your life.

 Case Study

A client presented with these symptoms:

  • Difficulty in waking and getting up every morning.
  • Slump in energy each afternoon, regardless of diet

Laboratory tests indicated:

Adrenal Dysfunction (as shown by dramatically reduced cortisol levels at crucial parts of the day)

Advised protocol:

  • Targeted nutrition plan and supplementation to support adrenal function, increase energy and reduce stress
  • Create an exercise routine tailored towards the individual’s needs
  • Stress reduction techniques – lifestyle/work etc.

Results after 3 months of following FDN protocol:

  • Drastically increased morning energy (became a morning person again)
  • Improved mental alertness in the afternoon
  • Improved mood and outlook on life
  • Improved ability to deal with stress
