We are excited to be featuring FDN Practitioner and functional health coach Rick Scott! Rick has used what he’s learned through FDN to not only restore his own health, but to also help clients restore theirs as well!
Rick had a number of health challenges from a young age. Before starting the FDN Certification course, he was experiencing crippling abdominal pains, IBS, indigestion, heartburn, GERD, and a variety of year-round illness symptoms. Today, Rick is happy to report that he has achieved a 90% improvement and that FDN played a huge role in his health success. Rick notes that FDN helped him understand how his body works and how the protocols FDN recommends work to correct dysfunction.
When asked about the most important nuggets Rick found in the FDN course, he said:
“Genetics loads the gun; lifestyle pulls the trigger.”
Rick also goes on to say:
“Symptoms are the body’s way of communicating dysfunction, and treating the symptoms alone without addressing the underlying dysfunction equals a huge missed healing opportunity.”
Throughout his work, Rick is able to give his clients great power by teaching them that they have control over their own health outcomes. Rick points out that this power is worthless, however, unless clients are completely dedicated to improving their health. They must understand that it’s a marathon rather than a sprint. Rick largely works with women aged 35-60. He finds that most clients have some level of adrenal dysfunction, hormonal imbalance and an autoimmune condition.
Some of the questions Rick answers in this interview include:
- What got you involved with FDN?
- What did the functional lab testing reveal for you?
- What did you take away from the course?
- What type of client do you typically work with?
- How quickly do you know if a client is really ready to make changes?
- What are the challenges that you face with clients when you start to work with them?
