Getting to the root cause of your health concern, not simply treating your symptoms.

FDN is an emerging field and growing body of work that bridges the gap between clinical nutrition and functional medicine. FDN is a type of detective work that seeks to identify and correct the underlying causes and conditions that lead to our patient’s health complaints. 

Anthony Llabres is a Certified (FDN-P) Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner. He has also been certified through the world renowned Kalish Institute/Kalish Practitioner.  As a Certified Practitioner he is able to work with clients around the world in advancing their health and wellness goals. With the Functional Approach he can work on underlying body systems such as the hormone, immune, digestive, detoxification, and brain systems. Many of your top health complaints may improve working with a skilled FDN/Kalish practitioner.  In 2016, I proudly began advanced training with Tracy Harrison of the Institute of Applied Functional Medicine. This advanced training will assist me in providing STATE of the ART services assisting you in reaching optimal health and wellness.

What is FDN?

Functional Medicine uses laboratory testing and an extensive medical history intake to recommend natural health programs along with lifestyle changes to assist in reversing the Big Five disorders (fatigue, depression, excessive weight gain, digestive problems and hormone imbalances). Physician referrals may be appropriate in some cases. Your safety and health is my FIRST PRIORITY.

Should a pathogen be detected by the laboratory, the client will have natural options available. We will also be happy to refer to a medical doctor should the client prefer that route. 

This healing process is not for everyone. As I am passionate about resolving my clients health issues, I desire a similar passion from my prospective clients. Patients must first realize that much of what we suffer from is self-inflicted. Poor diet choices, lack of exercise, excessive focus on work and career, not on family and relationships etc. My desire is to get clients back to a healthier way of living. Functional medicine testing and nutritional programs address one aspect of the problem. Together we must confront comprehensive lifestyle changes that will help you regain what you deserve: a healthy body and mind.
