"Symptoms are not the problem, they are the result of the problem -dysfunction."
-Reed Davis, Founder of Functional Diagnostic Nutrition®
Mission: Our mission is to educate, and help, as many people as possible to take control of their health, naturally.
Who are we? We are a real business, brick and mortar, Functional and Strong, LLC, based in San Antonio, Texas, and we are certified by Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® (FDN), TRX®, and STRONGFIRST®.
The current "Health Care System" is really a "Sick Care System", the system manages sickness and people just stay sick. In eastern medicine the doctor is paid to keep the people of the community healthy, guess what happens if the community is not healthy? they are out of a job. Here, in western medicine, the more people that get sick the more money that they make... This is what we call Sickness Care!
We firmly believe that each one of us should actively pursue our own wellness in a natural way, this would be true health care. We educate our clients on how to change their way of thinking from sickness care to wellness care, and by doing so they learn how to take control of their health.
"If the body is functioning correctly, and at ease, symptoms just can not exist. Symptoms appear after our bodies lost some function and are not longer at ease."
We believe in eating clean real food, and in having an active, fun and healthy lifestyle, with lots of outdoor activities.
We were designed to be healthy, full of energy, and have strong bodies!
We also believe that; our body is a masterpiece. If given the right building blocks it is capable of maintaining health. At Functional and Strong we can help you find your sensibilities to your internal and external environment (certain foods, chemicals, EMF's, mold, artificial lights, etc.)so you can minimize your exposure to them, and acting as "Health Detectives" we'll coach you to do what is really good for you, so you can become the healthiest version of yourself.
You should; have abundant energy, sleep "like a baby", be able to concentrate and don't forget "stuff", thrive in your sport, be able to play with your children without getting tired, etc.
"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."
There are a lot of good books, good information on the web, great schools, awesome universities, etc. in the world. In short there are a lot of good resources out there. But one of the biggest problems of this Digital era is that there is way too much information at our reach, and sadly, a lot of it is wrong, incomplete, or it probably doesn't even apply to you! The result of this is that you get overwhelmed, stressed out, and you end up not knowing were to start!
This is called "Paralysis by Analysis"!
Our job at Functional and Strong is to be very practical, of course we'll teach you what you need to learn. But what matters most is obtaining results! You want results, right?
And there is no better way to get results than having a Coach guiding you, helping you set goals, and making you accountable!
We can not expect to have results with Diets and Programs that were built for the masses, why? Because every one of us is UNIQUE! For example; something that is very good for you can be bad for somebody else and it might even be deadly for another person.
"Symptoms are always the last things to appear, and they could be very far removed from the root cause. It only makes sense to go after the root cause and help your body restore it's normal function."
We'll apply FDN's D.R.E.S.S. for Health Success® protocols to address your unique Diet, Rest, Exercise, Stress and Supplements needs and/or circumstances.
And we'll also apply and teach you STRONGFIRST®'s principles to help you build a strong and resilient body. We are certified SFB's coaches, meaning that STRONGFIRST® Certified us a Bodyweight Training Coaches. No need for a Gym membership, no need to have access to equipment, etc. just you.
There are other tools that we use, one example is the TRX Suspension Trainer® and the TRX RIP Trainer®. The best suspension and functional training tools in the market. We have 3 different Certification Training Courses by TRX®, these are: STC, RTC, and FTC.
"You are an expert in your field, let us be the Health and Wellness Engineers in your life and you will learn how to take control of your health. You will have more energy to do what you enjoy the most!"
We have been there before (Insomnia, overwhelmed with stress, anxiety attacks, not being able to gain weight/muscle, taking course after course of antibiotics, being overweight, blood sugar level issues, hormonal imbalances, mood swings, migraines and headaches, chronic sinus infections, weird and unrelated reactions to food, etc.). Most of the time by fixing the Metabolic Chaos in your body your own body then starts to do the rest.
"There is always room for improvement in our lives, and by discovering healing opportunities or natural performance enhancing options, your body could dramatically improve it's function, and achieving this will improve your quality of life! I have done it myself, and I have taught other people how I did it, and I can teach you too."
We have been able to "fix" one by one of our clients health issues by going after the root causes.
We can coach you so you can start having a healthier lifestyle and improve your general wellness.
It's time for you to take control of your health!
It has been said that the best time to start doing something was 20 years ago! And that the second best time to start is TODAY!
Why should I start working with you? Here are the top three reasons:
1. Because we have been successful at helping a lot of people with many different health complaints (FDN really works!).
2. Because you are tired of chasing symptoms, and you want to uncover the root cause of your health issues. 3. Because you prefer to learn how to self treat following natural protocols and a healthier Lifestyle.
We are pretty sure that you'll be very pleased with your results, because we know that you will be very committed on applying all the things that you'll learn!
Also, you can apply the knowledge for the rest of your life, a longer more enjoyable life, because it just makes sense that if you have a healthier lifestyle you could live longer, and not only live longer, but you could feel and look younger for the rest of your life!
