Welcome to my website! My name is Veronica Dowdy and I’m a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Practitioner. I specialize in finding hidden stressors in your body for the most common health complaints. We do that through the use of functional labs which you run from home. My job is to make recommendations based on the healing opportunities that I find in those test results. I don’t diagnose nor do I treat disease, but instead, help your body as a whole, by providing you with a self-care protocol so you can feel better and take charge of your own health.
My own health journey started in 2010 when I successfully lost 55 pounds, reversed my blood sugars and went on to compete in my first fitness competition. Even though my health improved and I had started to feel much better, there were a few issues that had not improved. I had suffered from lack of sleep, digestive issues and knew I had some hormonal imbalances that I needed to address.
When I heard about FDN® a few years ago, I was curious as to what it could offer me. So I decided to start my own quest to find out what other internal stressors I needed to address so I would start feeling better. When I ran the functional lab tests on myself, they were quite an eye-opener and I was finally able to go directly to the source of my complaints. Once I did this, things started to improve. Knowing how much this benefitted me, helped me make the decision to pursue this as a career so I could help others in their quest to better health.
The reason I call myself a “Vitality Detective” is because that’s what I am. I’m the kind of detective that helps you achieve better vitality and health by finding the hidden causes that are getting in the way of your full vitality. Having been there myself, I know how difficult it can be to know that we’re doing everything right, and yet, not feeling completely well. It’s frustrating and can be discouraging at times. The good news is that there ARE answers and I can help you find those answers!
