What people say about Full Body Systems

“There are lots of courses out there competing for our dollars, and I had to decide which one was worth the investment. I’m a nurse and I wanted a program that respected the talents and skills I have, while teaching me how to work Functionally and to use “food as medicine”. Full Body Systems has far exceeded my expectations. I helped my husband reverse his diabetes with what I learned from Andrea and Functional Nutrition Alliance. Andrea and her team are inspiring!“

Devorah Shulman, RN

“Andrea Nakayama is one of the thought leaders in our field of functional medicine and it’s no surprise that her training program generates excellent quality nutrition counselors that are well prepared to handle working effectively with doctors in the field treating complex patients. Nutrition counseling requires a delicate balance of emotional support as well as understanding the underpinnings of functional medicine to deliver patient-centered results. Andrea’s program creates the nutrition counselors that doctors need to grow and build their practices on a bedrock of solid clinical results.“

Dan Kalish, DCFunctional Medicine Expert, Founder of the Kalish Institute

By far, Full Body Systems has been my best investment. I couldn’t recommend it more! As nurses, we are the front lines with so many patients. We all need this information so we can learn to connect the dots of what’s going on in someone’s body. What we learn in nursing school (and in the other programs I took) is all about isolated information. Andrea is the only one that makes the connections and shows us how to back things up so we can find the root causes.
