FDN is a holistic discipline that bridges the gap between functional medicine and clinical nutrition. Practitioners utilize functional laboratory assessments and interpretations that identify malfunctions and “healing opportunities” at the root of most common health complaints. Our work includes customizing lifestyle and behavior programs, which encompass diet, rest, exercise, stress reduction, targeted supplementation recommendations. FDN practitioners embrace metabolic bioindividuality and seek to identify the root causes of dis=ease so that we can develop natural protocols that restore function instead of just treating symptoms.
Symptoms are a dis-ease signal that something needs to change, and they rarely ever occur “out-of-the-blue” or alone. They’re a perfectly natural response from a body struggling to cope in an unnatural environment. A truly broken body would be incapable of manifesting symptoms at all. The fact that you’re exhibiting symptoms means that your body is doing exactly what it’s supposed to be doing – which is signal you to correct your environment so you can return to a state of “ease.”
The body is designed to always move towards health with an innate intelligence to self-heal when properly balanced. The challenge we face today is how to sync our modern form to our evolutionary function. How do we find balance?
If you want to optimize your health and performance, then it’s imperative that you first learn how to optimize your environment and lifestyle. As a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, I want to find out what’s causing your symptoms and help you restore your body back into a state of ease and keep it there.
This is “root-cause resolution,” and this is I want to help you achieve.

“Working with Lisa Herndon literally gave me back my health and enabled me to continue earning a living in a demanding profession. I had eaten poorly and pushed my body for many years and it eventually manifested in multiple layers of health issues. Lisa suggested I do some initial testing and then designed a program that customized my diet and wellness protocol based on many factors that took a “whole person” perspective. She systematically stepped me through the long process of regaining optimal health in terms of digestion, detox, immune function, hormones, pathogens, stressors, and toxins. Through it all she was compassionate, yet firm, and this approach encouraged me to stay the course through many physical and emotional challenges. Lisa was always readily available for consultations and support, and often did extra work to fine-tune the supplement protocol to my physically demanding profession. I am grateful every day for all that I have learned from Lisa about how to continue living a healthy lifestyle. I consider Lisa to me one of my most valued health and well-being advisors and a good friend.”
