Best Holistic Health Coach Certification


What Makes the Best Holistic Health Coach Certification?

The top 3 reasons holistic health coaches joined FDN, even after graduating from other certification programs.

Welcome holistic health warrior!

If you’ve landed on this page, you probably fall into one of two categories

  1. You’re not yet certified as a holistic health coach, but want to be!
  2. You’re already certified (yay!), but something is still missing.

The good news is that whichever category you fall into, you’re in just the right spot.  

Here at Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN), we’ve trained over 4,000 health coaches & practitioners, who are now able to make an incredible living doing what they love most. 

Many of those 4,000 people came to us with zero experience (other than their own healing journey), but many others came to us after receiving another holistic health certification.

So…why would our students invest even more money once they’re already a certified holistic health coach??

Because they realize they’re missing a few key tools for success.

So today, we’re going to dive into the top 3 reasons holistic health coaches decide to join FDN after getting certified elsewhere. 

#1 | “I Can’t Run Labs.”

There are a few key points you’ll learn inside many health coach certification programs.

Things like:

Generalized diet & nutrition to support whole-body health.
Best practices to support whole-body health.
Positive psychology and behavior change techniques.

And don’t get us wrong, all of this is important!

BUT – there are a few key things missing, with the first being…


We’re going to make a bold statement here…

Learning how to run functional lab tests, analyze them through a holistic lens, and also have access to ordering them, is the difference between a wildly successful health coach and every other health coach out there. 

Now, if you’re fairly new to the health coaching industry, you might be wondering how we can make such a lofty claim like this. Or, maybe like many health coach grads, you already know this to be true, and you’re desperate to get your hands on this kind of training. 

Either way, the proof is in the pudding. Our FDN graduates consistently go on to build 6-figure health businesses, and mastering functional labs plays a huge part in this. People pay for results, and being able to make data-driven health decisions gives you (+ your clients) results!

How to Pick the Best Holistic Health Coach Certification?

The best certification gives you:

High-level functional lab test training
Access to ordering functional labs post-graduation 

You need both.

Because if you pick a program that teaches you how to analyze functional labs, but doesn’t give you access to ordering them once you graduate, you’re going to have a hard time running your own business. 

So, be sure to consider your long-term goals. If you want to start and grow your own online health business, make sure to think about these things when choosing a program!

What Do You Get With FDN?

When you join the FDN certification course, you:

  • Receive the most advanced functional diagnostic training in the industry.
  • Learn how to apply the data from functional lab results to create highly personalized diet & lifestyle protocols.
  • Get access to ordering 60+ functional labs through our Medical Director Program (MDP) even if you’re not licensed.

At the end of the day, this gives you the tools to run your own, self-sufficient & successful online health business.

#2: “My Clients Aren’t Getting Results.”

Another complaint we hear from health coach grads *before* they join FDN, is that their clients just aren’t getting results.

Even though they care so much about helping their clients get well, and they *thought* they were prepared after receiving their certification, still…

Their clients aren’t experiencing real, life-changing transformations.

If you can relate to this as a Health Coach grad, know that you are not alone!

So, what’s the problem?

If you’re using “best practices” rather than a data-driven, personalized approach, you’ll have a hard time getting powerful results for those tougher client cases.

This can effect:

Your confidence as a Health Coach
Your business growth
Your revenue

Which means you need to find a certification program that focuses on applying functional lab results to protocols that work, and getting unparalleled client results.

How to Pick the Best Holistic Health Coach Certification?

The best certification combines: 

Diagnostics + lab testing, with 
Comprehensive diet and lifestyle protocols

This allows you to look under the hood to see what’s going on in the body, then create a comprehensive roadmap to resolve hidden stressors and restore health.

What Do You Get With FDN?

When you join FDN, you learn a proven methodology to restore function within the body, no matter what symptoms or diagnosis your client comes to you with. Yes, seriously!

So when you graduate, you have the tools to find solutions to ANY health issue, because your decisions are backed by data, science, and a proven system, rather than generic “best practices”.  

This ultimately leads to greater confidence, happier clients, faster business growth, more money, and more health coaching success!

#3: “It’s Hard to Make Money.”

The health coach industry is booming, being valued at about $7 billion in 2021. [1] Which means the amount you’re able to charge is booming, too!

So, why then do so many certified health coaches who start their own business have a hard time making money after they graduate?

Well, a lot of opportunity comes with a lot of competition. With the number of health coaches rising everyday, it’s never been more important to stand out!

This means moving beyond offering generic holistic health advice, and solving real health problems. 

This will then lead you to…

You guessed it – 

Excellent client results

Getting consistent, transformative results for your clients is hands-down the best way to set yourself apart from other health coaches, get referrals, and grow your biz.

How to Pick the Best Holistic Health Coach Certification?

We’ve already covered the importance of choosing a program that teaches you how to utilize functional lab testing and apply it properly.

And, you should also keep your eye out for a certification that focuses on client results. If you don’t hear mention of client results, this is likely not a focus inside the program.

What Do You Get With FDN?

Here at FDN, we set our students up to build 6-figure online health businesses. It’s not uncommon, it’s the norm.

In fact, our founder, Reed Davis, tells students that if you’re not making 6-figures during your first year, you’re doing something wrong!

That’s because you learn how to get real results for your clients, which in turn leads to a thriving, referral-based health business!
