Reed Davis Notable Quotes

“You can live yourself out of the trouble you lived into.”
Reed Davis

“The question needs to be rephrased so that it’s not one or the other [a health coach or a physician]; you go to the one you need. You go get your needs served, filled. And that’s the problem with standard medicine. It doesn’t fill all the needs.”
Reed Davis


Episode Summary

A stable, functioning metabolism is one of the keys to maintaining our health. If one part of our metabolism doesn’t quite work, it can cause a cascade of health issues that can be detrimental to our everyday quality of life. Lucky for us, through trained professionals and rigorous testing, we can find the root cause of metabolic dysfunctions and make the essential corrections to reclaim our health.

In this episode of This Podcast Burns Fat, we’re talking to the man who created Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN) and made leaps and bounds in the health coaching space, Reed Davis. Reed shares how helpful testing can be when it comes to getting to the root cause of metabolic chaos and to help build a nutrition and lifestyle program specifically tailored to a patient’s needs.
