“What is functional medicine?”
FDN is a science-based lab system that tests and reveals possible imbalances in one area of the body at a subclinical (causal) level. We address issues such as mineral imbalance, adrenal dysfunction, hormone imbalance, digestive problems, immune deficiency, detoxification, food sensitivities, and other H.I.D.D.E.N. stressors. FDN tests may use hair, saliva, urine, or stool to determine what systems are malfunctioning, so that appropriate lab guided strategies can be utilized to improve and restore optimal function. When function is restored, symptoms will disappear.
