How is the Functional Approach Different?
The functional approach respects the amazing DESIGN and innate intelligence of the body to function optimally when given the necessary requirements and support to do so. The functional approach examines HOW the body utilizes NUTRITION, REST and EXERCISE plus how it responds to STRESS to sustain balanced metabolic health and weight. Focusing on addressing underlying CAUSES of dysfunction rather than on symptom management through a process called the 5R Protocol of Removing, Replacing, Repopulating, Repairing, Rebalancing is key to the functional difference.
What does Diagnostic mean?
“To DISCOVER. To find or uncover something that is needed.” The COMBINATION of self assessments, Nutri-Q (Nutritional Assessment Questionnaire), metabolic typing, functional lab testing and COACHING creates a comprehensive PERSON centered path to WEIGHT MASTERY that seeks to identify H.I.D.D.E.N. stressors in Hormone, Immune, Digestive, Detoxification, Energy production and Nervous System that are perpetuating a cycle of METABOLIC CHAOS. Test, don’t guess diagnostics help our Coaches go beyond calories in, calories out to make functional correlation of lab results to the PERSON and their unique health profile, lifestyle situation and bio-individuality. It’s not about being “in range”. It’s about using testing and assessments as TOOLS to PUT TOGETHER your FUNCTIONAL health and WEIGHT MASTERY puzzle. Diagnostic is NOT diagnosis. We do not diagnose or treat disease. The functional lab tests are different than testing you will find through a primary care or specialist office. They are part of our self care model and are NOT used to diagnosis disease or code illness of any kind. We do not treat anything specifically, but build FOUNDATIONAL health non-specifically leading to powerful, whole person results.

What is Holistic health coaching?
“It is the philosophy that health is a COMPLEX INTERPLAY of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of one’s being. Holistic nutrition approaches health and healing from a whole-person perspective. Using nutrition and lifestyle EDUCATION as a primary tool, emphasizing the BUILDING of health by approaching each person as a UNIQUE individual.” – National Association of Nutrition Professionals (NANP)

Basic Statement of Faith:
We believe the Bible, comprised of the Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God (Matthew 5:18; 2 Timothy 3:16-17). In faith we hold the Bible to be inerrant in the original writings, God-breathed, and the complete and final authority for faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16-17). The reliability of the Scriptures is based on the following evidences: archealogical, prophetical, national, historical, logical, natural and supernatural. These evidences work together. In isolation they can be fallible and subject to misinterpretation, but if viewed holistically they create an overwhelming body of evidence for believing the Bible is true.
We believe in the one triune God: who is personal, spirit, and sovereign; perfect, infinite, and eternal in His being, holiness and love, wisdom and power; absolutely separate and above the world as its creator, yet everywhere present in the world as the Upholder of all things; self-existent and self-revealing in three distinct Persons, The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit, each having a distinct ministry in God’s relation to His creation and people.
The Eternal Purposes of God:
We believe His purposes are progressively revealed from “In the beginning” to “Even so, come, Lord Jesus”. God has progressively revealed Himself in three “Words”. His Natural Word – creation spoken into existence (“The heavens declare the glory of God”). His Written Word – the Scriptures preserved (“The Word of God is living and powerful”). His Living Word – the Person of Jesus – (“In these last days spoken to us by His Son.”) “Faith comes by hearing. And hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17.
