Want a peak inside?

Here’s How the Program Works

  • 1. Health Coaching Mastery with Dr. Lori Rose

    Dr. Lori Rose, PhD, National Board Certified Holistic Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC), Registered Herbalist (AHG), and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Practitioner (FDN-P), teaches you everything you need to know for the national board exam with a mixture of on-demand and live coaching sessions.

    Five core topics you’ll cover include:

    Wellness Wheel: Discover how to guide your clients through a detailed self-assessment of their current health and wellness needs. 

    Strengths: Learn how to pinpoint your client’s individual strengths & weave those into your health coaching program to build confidence & improve follow-through. 

    Values: Learn how to determine & leverage your client’s unique value system to create lasting behavioral change & better health outcomes.  

    Vision: Understand how to uncover your client’s long-term vision of health & life, so you can help keep them focused on what really matters when the going gets tough.  

    SMART Goals, Barriers, & Accountability: Get clear on how to help your clients set realistic, measurable goals so you can keep them motivated & engaged.  

    You’ll walk away with the necessary skills to get better client results every time. 


  • 2. Personalized Mentorship

    In these hour-long 1:1 sessions (3 total), you’ll meet with your assigned FDN mentor where you’ll review your coaching calls with a client. Your mentor will then provide expert guidance and feedback on how to strengthen your coaching skills.

    Your third and final session will conclude with a graded Practical Skills Assessment (PSA) that is necessary for the national board exam.

    You’ll walk away from each mentorship session being one step closer to board eligibility.

  • 3. On-Demand Health and Wellness Trainings

    Enhance your knowledge with fundamental, on-demand health and wellness modules that cover the NBHWC requirements and move your career forward. This is an incredible opportunity to learn from industry leaders in the functional & holistic health industry.

    Foundational Health & Wellness Modules include:

    1. Mitochondria: The world is full of stressors that negatively impact our mitochondria, otherwise known as the body’s energy centers. Learn how to identify these daily stressors and educate your clients on how to improve their mitochondrial function.

    2. Blood Chemistry: Blood work results that are “normal” by conventional standards does not actually equate to optimal health. Discover different lifestyle strategies that can help you or your client live in a state of true wellness – free from symptoms.

    3. Herbal Foundations: Herbal medicine has been used to promote health and healing for centuries. In this module, you’ll explore the power of herbs and how they can function as a safe + effective alternative to help your client reach their goals.

    You’ll walk away from each module with a practical understanding of how to apply this knowledge to help your clients overcome specific challenges & build better health.

Meet FDN Founder

Reed Davis

Over 20 years ago, FDN founder, Reed Davis, recognized that most patients with chronic conditions were caught in a frustrating cycle of trial-and-error – desperately searching for answers, but never finding the lasting results they were after.

He spent years working in a wellness center and making observations, until he began to recognize patterns of healing opportunities, giving way to what is now Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN). 

Today, FDN has trained over 4,000 practitioners in 50+ countries and helped over 10,000 people get well and stay well naturally. Our values remain rooted in data-driven health, pushing past the status quo, and committing to our path as life-long learners.
