I am so excited to announce that Thrive by Food is now a certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition practice!


This means that not only can clients work on healing their gut through diet and lifestyle, but we now can dig even deeper to the underlying causes of digestive issue with functional lab work!


Thrive by Food clients now have immediate access to lab tests that can uncover imbalances in:

  • Hormones
  • Adrenal function
  • Liver detoxification
  • Intestinal Permeability
  • Digestion
  • Thyroid


This announcement is deeply meaningful to me because I was first a client of several FDN practitioners before I became one myself. Running functional lab tests and having data to work from was a huge reason why I was able to recover my own digestive and adrenal health and wellbeing and I’m so excited to now help my clients do the same.


How Does It Work?

During our first session working together in my 1-on-1 coaching program, I will recommend the lab tests that will help us uncover hidden stressors on your body and that can give us insights to help you move forward on your health journey. For one person, this may be a comprehensive hormone panel, for another it may be food sensitivity and gut pathogen testing. It’s very individualistic, and that’s what I love about this approach. 


Once you complete your at-home lab test (I will drop ship this to you), and I receive the results back from the lab, we will have a Results & Recommendation session where I will review the results with you and talk you through my recommendations that will help restore balance and normal function. This is often a combination of diet, lifestyle, and strategic supplementation.


Re-testing is recommended 90-180 days after your initial test to see where your levels stand. At this point, we find that either your body has fully rebalanced itself, or we have a bit more work to do. Factors that determine this include how long the issue has been going on, how compliant you have been with your protocol, and your body’s unique chemistry and metabolism.


As with all of my coaching programs, we will be in contact regularly during the entire process as you implement key changes to your life.
