Sounds great, right?

You just can’t figure out how to get there.

You’ve Been Sold This Dream Before

You’ve completed a health coaching program (or two), jumped through the hoops of certification, and invested thousands in your education. You’ve poured endless amounts of energy into this career path. Maybe you’ve even seen momentum in your business, but it comes in waves and isn’t repeatable.

Now, you feel stuck.

And the good news is that it’s not about trying harder.

It’s about getting THE RIGHT TOOLS.

Good News

We have the solution to take you to the next level.


The FDN Certification Program

A world-class functional health certification designed to help you master functional labs, create custom protocols & grow a freedom-filled health coaching practice.

Our program is uniquely positioned to fill in the gaps in your health coaching education by giving you essential tools that aren’t offered in today’s leading certification programs.

Access to functional lab testing as an FDN graduate.

Confidence to interpret results.

Data-driven protocols that work.


The program kicks off with an introduction to the FDN philosophy, followed by comprehensive training on (6) functional health screening tests. Once you’ve learned how to analyze test results, we teach you how to create custom protocols based on those results.

Explore the curriculum!

Learn the FDN Philosophy

Module 1 | How to Be an FDN Health Detective

Learn the FDN ropes! We’ll teach you the overall FDN philosophy on health & wellness, and how it differs from conventional medicine. We’ll also introduce the concept of Metabolic Chaos™, and how to use functional lab tests to identify healing opportunities with the body. 

Decode Stress & Hormones

Module 2 | The FDN Stress & Hormone Profile (SHP)

Learn the fundamentals of stress & hormones. In this module, we’ll look at the Hypothalamus / Pituitary / Adrenal Axis & the significance of cortisol dysregulation. We’ll also introduce the “FDN Stress & Hormone Profile.” 

Assess Sex Hormones

Module 3 | H-P-A & Sex Hormone Assessment

Learn how to assess sex hormones. In this module you’ll look at both male & female hormone cycles, common symptoms relating to deficiencies, and hormone excesses. We’ll also review how to test premenopausal females. 

Leverage Metabolic Health

Module 4 | FDN MWP – Metabolic Wellness Profile: Digestion, Detoxification, Oxidative Stress

Learn how to assess metabolic health. In this module, you’ll learn the absolute importance of the liver, digestion, and natural detoxification. We’ll also introduce the “FLUIDS iQ Metabolic Wellness Profile” and review each marker. 

Evaluate Digestive Health

Module 5 | Digestive Health

Learn how to evaluate digestive health. In this module, you’ll learn the physiology and significance of the mucosal barrier, and its role in digestive health. The “FLUIDS iQ Mucosal Barrier Assessment” & “Genova Intestinal Permeability” tests will be covered with explanations of markers that provide clues into intestinal permeability. 

Understand Barriers to Digestive Health

Module 6 | Antigens & Pathogens

Learn what happens when the environment inside the G.I. track breaks down, and how to test for the presence of good & bad bacteria, pathogens, immune system functionality & inflammation levels. You’ll walk away with a solid understanding of how to use the GI-MAP stool test, and an understanding that bugs are not usually the underlying problem.

Identify Food Sensitivities

Module 7 | Food Sensitivities

Learn all about food sensitivity testing. In this module, you’ll learn how to use the “Great Plains IgG Fingerstick” & the “Oxford Biomedical Mediator Release” tests to screen your clients for potential food sensitivities. We’ll also cover guidelines for when to reintroduce sensitive foods, and when to retest your clients. 

Learn Metabolic Typing®

Module 8 | Metabolic Typing®

Learn what foods to recommend, and in what quantity! In this module, we explore how Metabolic Typing® helps you determine the proper diet for each client. We talk about the percentage of carbs, protein & fats that are most suitable for each client, and also introduce the D.R.E.S.S. framework, which is our unique health restoration process.

Create Custom Diet & Nutrition Protocols

Module 9 | Diet

Embrace the power of functional nutrition. In this module, you learn how to use functional nutrition to help eliminate Metabolic Chaos™ within the body. We dig into bio-individuality & how to create highly-customized protocols that accelerate the healing process. 

Address Rest, Recovery & Sleep

Create Personalized Movement Programs

Utilize Stress Reduction Strategies

Module 12 | Stress & Stress Reduction

Learn how to support healing with stress reduction. In this module, you’ll learn how to identify hidden stressors for you and your clients. Plus, how to incorporate stress reduction practices into your custom healing protocols.

In this module, you’ll learn how to select the most effective supplements to restore optimal function for your clients (surprise, surprise: it’s based on lab results!). 

Learn From Real-World Case Studies

Module 14 | Case Studies & Prep

Solidify your understanding with real-world case studies. In this module, you’ll review some powerful examples & reflect on what you’ve learned so far: there is only one underlying problem…Metabolic Chaos™. 

Streamline Your Online Business

Module 15 | Client Onboarding & Intake

Prepare to serve clients. In this module, we’ll talk about setting up your online business for success & ease. We’ll walk you through the logistics & best practices for client onboarding so you’re ready to see clients.

Here’s How We Compare

Other Certifications:

Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN):

Teaches you functional lab analysis, so you can make data-driven decisions that actually get results, even for complex cases.

Gives you a timeless framework that combines data-driven decisions with a thorough client intake to provide whole-person support.

Paves the way to freedom-filled business by focusing on client success. results → referrals → success

Provides you with essential business training, so you understand how to create high-value packages with your new advanced health skills.

Offers a next-level Business School, designed specifically to help you go from “struggling health coach” → to 6-figure CEO.

Gives you access to 60+ functional lab tests through the Medical Director Program (MDP), allowing you to operate a highly-profitable independent health coaching practice.

Includes (9) individual sessions throughout the program to help you optimize your own health, practice what you’ve learned & prepare for your final exams.

Offers a top-tier graduate program with a private group of fellow health entrepreneurs.

Access to affordable “clinical consults” to help you address complex client cases as you grow your business.

Teaches you how to optimize your own health with the power of functional labs (at no extra cost), leaving you with massive amounts of first-hand experience.

Teach you generalized holistic health information, which leaves you guessing what’s actually wrong with your clients, and how to help them get better.

Claim to teach you “business & marketing”, but fall way short when it comes to the practical strategies necessary to grow your online business.

Provide zero access to functional labs as an unlicensed professional, leaving you without the ability to run a profitable independent wellness practice.

Provide very little (if any) 1:1 mentorship throughout the certification process, and fall way short on practical support for graduates.

Do not include any labs to help you optimize your own health, leaving you with far less first-hand experience, and more imposter syndrome.

We know our program is no small investment. The truth is, you’re investing in a brand new career and life here! One that provides you with more time, money, impact & ultimately – freedom. Plus, you’re completely transforming your own health along the way. 


This is likely the lowest cost the program will ever be, as the price increases annually to keep up with inflation & increased value. We do offer flexible payment plans that allow you to join the program for as little as $424/month.

Great question! When you graduate, you earn the title of Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDNP). You also have the option to join the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP) when you graduate, which allows you to use “Holistic Health Practitioner” as your title!

But at the end of the day, when you launch your health coaching practice, you have the option to choose whatever title you want. For example, some graduates prefer to use “Functional Health Coach” or  “Health Consultant”.

The key difference is that you are trained to leverage functional lab testing to identify healing opportunities. It’s the difference between guessing what’s wrong, and actually figuring out what’s wrong. From there, you create highly-personalized diet, lifestyle & supplement plans that collapse time & help your clients get better faster. 

We highly recommend taking advantage of our 50% bundle discount, and purchasing FDN Business School upfront. This is a savings of $1,500! If you’re not sure, just book a free call, and we’ll help you make a decision that is right for you. 

No worries! Most of our students never worked with functional labs before joining FDN. There are no prerequisites for the program, and we’ve designed the course assuming you are brand new to functional lab testing. We break it down in a way that is comprehensive and digestible –- plus, you’ll receive support every step of the way!
