How to Know What to Eat as a Thyroid Patient
with Reed Davis, founder of the FDN Course
Welcome to Thyroid Refresh TV!
In this episode, we speak with Reed Davis, a Holistic Health Practitioner (HHP) and Certified Nutritional Therapist (CNT). Reed is an expert in functional lab testing and holistic lifestyle medicine, and Founder of Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® (FDN).
Reed served as the Health Director and Case Manager at a Wellness Center in California for over 10 years and now teaches the FDN Course with over 2500 trainees or graduates in 50 countries.
Today, Reed is known as one of the most successful and experienced clinicians in the world, having provided functional lab assessments to over 10,000 clients. He is also a Clinical Advisor for BioHealth Laboratories and lives in the US, teaching the FDN Certification Course and helping his graduates build robust private practices.
As an Environmental Paralegal throughout the 90s, Reed was “saving the planet” including the birds, bees, air, water and trees. In 1999 he found himself asking the question, “What is the environment doing to PEOPLE, including ME?” That began a 20-year career dedicated to helping people find out what’s really wrong and how to fix it naturally.
After earning a certificate in nutritional therapy, Reed noticed that most patients had already seen multiple doctors and therapists and still had many of their original complaints. He decided then that he would be the last practitioner anyone needed to see and became an expert in functional lab assessments. FDN is the result of more research and experience than most practitioners get in a lifetime.
Join us for an interesting discussion with Reed about how to leverage nutrition and what we eat to help optimize thyroid health. Tune in to learn more!
