Established Clinicians

Full Body Systems is for established clinicians who want to increase patient and client outcomes with nutrition. You know diet and lifestyle make a difference in someone’s health, and you’re looking to make this important addition to your practice
  • Get better outcomes with those “tough to reach” clients that have been challenging in the past

Health Coaches

Full Body Systems is for Health Coaches who are ready to uplevel their practice, and be able to help any client that walks through their doors. Take your understanding of health and habit change, and transform it into a system that allows you to help the population you’re most passionate about.
  • Go beyond ‘weight-loss’ and get real results that will make you stand out in the field
  • Gain confidence working with more complex cases, knowing that you have a system that transcends one-size-fits-all protocols
  • learn the secrets to client compliance, even for the most resistant cases
Enrolling in Full Body Systems was one of the best decisions I’ve made. This training equipped me with the confidence and qualifications to work with clients, and to understand their health issues. Andrea teaches you how to uncover the root causes of your client’s health issues. She takes you on a deep dive into anatomy and physiology to learn and understand how “food”, in its many forms, either feeds the body and its various systems or limits the body’s ability to thrive. I appreciate how she shares her knowledge and experience, and the direct mentorship she provides by answering your questions during group sessions.

Aspiring Nutrition Counselors

Full Body Systems is for aspiring Nutrition Counselors who are passionate about a career that harnesses the power of nutrition. You already know that food and lifestyle make a big difference in someone’s health. You just need the training to let you educate others about its importance.
  • Take your passion for ‘food as medicine’ and turn it into a career
  • Learn how food interacts with the unique biology of your clients, so you can make recommendations to suit each individual’s needs
  • Learn the secrets to client compliance, even for the most resistant cases
I’ve had so many “aha!” moments this year, and I just can’t believe I know what I know now! Having no clinical background, I thought it would be pretty challenging to learn this stuff . But Andrea’s delivery of the content makes it easy to digest and I love going back to the content again and again. My client recommendations are extremely effective and my confidence has skyrocketed.

Andrea's Full Body Systems filled in the gaps and really rounded out my nutritional training. It has given me the confidence to work with clients that have chronic conditions like Fibromyalgia, Hashimotos and whatever else comes up... I am able to work with them and meet them where they are to discover how we can work together to realize their full potential and health. It's amazing what and how you learn in Full Body Systems.... This program is a gift, it towers above any other nutritional training that I've taken!
I came into FBS as a certified health coach with a Paramedic and fitness background, so I knew my science. I was excited to see how science could merge with food. This is EXACTLY what Andrea teaches. She brings in the tough scientific concepts that I geek out over and transformed it into easy-to-understand content and practical application strategies that we could use with clients right away.
I would not have the knowledge base or the confidence to run my own detox program if it weren't for all of the education and experience that I have learned by participating in Andrea's programs. She has changed my life forever in the best way possible.
I am so grateful for Functional Nutrition Lab. I have so much more confidence, and as I support a functional medicine doctor, it has allowed me to understand the protocols he is using, and be in a better position to support clients... And when an issue comes up with a client, I now have so many resources to go back to!
This investment paid for itself ten-fold as I now am able partner with functional doctors who send me referrals that I wouldn't have been able to help without the knowledge I gained in FBS.
I come from a research background and often find wellness courses thrown together and rather light. I appreciate Andrea's comprehensive and well-prepared teaching style. Her discussions, handouts, and links are helpful to me when I'm learning as well as later when I help clients. Thank you Andrea!

How this program came to be

Hi, I’m Andrea, and over the past few years I’ve supported over 4000 practitioners (including Nurse Practitioners, Health Coaches, Nutritionists, Naturopathic and Functional Medicine Doctors, Dietitians, Physician Assistants, Holistic Chefs, aspiring clinicians and more) to utilize the systems that consistently deliver better results and outcomes with their patients and clients.

My road to understanding the power of nutrition began with a personal tragedy. My young husband, Isamu, was diagnosed with a fatal brain tumor when I was just 7 weeks pregnant with our only child.

It was in overcoming his prognosis of six months and prolonging his life for another two years that my expanding interest in food as personalized medicine became my full-time passion and purpose.

When I hung my shingle as a practitioner in 2009, I was astounded by how quickly my practice grew. I went from having a small solo practice to having a waiting list to running a virtual wellness center where I had to hire additional nutritionists (who will now be your mentors in the program).

I even helped the most desperate people with the toughest cases including autoimmune issues such as Crohn’s Disease, Hashimoto’s and MS, as well as those with cancer and undiagnosed health challenges.

When I spoke with my colleagues, I realized that I was having exponentially greater success than others who had the same tools and maybe even the same educational background (or more) as I did.

To help others have the same success that I’ve had, I’ve spent the last decade developing and leading the Full Body Systems online immersion. This program teaches you how to practice TRUE root-cause resolution, create client compliance, and develop a practice that naturally scales based on the great outcomes you’re getting with your clients.

Since starting Full Body Systems in 2012, we’ve had over 4,000 practitioners complete the program.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Functional Nutrition Lab?

    Functional Nutrition Lab is a school that offers in-depth Functional Nutrition training for health providers of all levels. Full Body Systems, our nutrition immersion program skillfully blends the art of practice with the science of nutrition. Functional Nutrition Lab was created by Functional Medicine Nutritionist Andrea Nakayama to help coaches and practitioners achieve the same clinical and business success that she has had. The curriculum is designed to give you all the skills you need to help anyone, no matter their signs, symptoms, or diagnosis.

  • How does Functional Nutrition Lab differ from other Functional Medicine and nutrition training programs?

    Functional Nutrition Lab differs from other Functional Medicine and nutrition trainings in several ways. In many other trainings, there’s a focus on the theoretical. What Andrea is able to do, after working with hundreds of clients and thousands of class participants, is translate the theoretical into the practical. She wants you to have the clinical and business success that she has had, so she teaches you how to implement your knowledge to truly help people get well.

    Full Body Systems is the only training program that teaches the following 4 key skills in building a thriving Functional Nutrition practice:

    1. The art of connection: Learn how to create rapport and connection with your client, how to ask the right questions to find the root cause of their health issues, and tap into their motivations. Both your client compliance and clinical success will skyrocket.
    2. In-depth anatomy and physiology through the lens of food and nutrition: How does food meet physiology? Food meets physiology differently in each of us because none of us are the same as any other. FNL teaches you to see what others cannot see—what’s going on in the unique body of your particular client.
    3. Integrating your client’s unique physiology into their healing protocol: How to take the knowledge gained about the unique physiology of your client, along with his/her unique motivations (learned from the art of connection), to create individualized nutrition plans for your clients and patients that they will actually follow.
    4. How to gain the respect of your client’s medical team: Work in tandem with physicians and other medical professionals, and become a true partner and advocate for your client.

    Above all else, the support and mentorship provided by Andrea and her team are one of a kind. They guide you through case studies and answer your toughest questions so you can practice with confidence.

  • Will I receive continuing education units (CEUs) upon completion of the Full Body Systems Nutrition Training Program?

    By completing FBS, you can earn up to 60 category 1 continuing education units with the National Association of Nutrition Professionals (NANP) by passing an online test at the completion of class.

  • Will I be able to start practicing after completing Full Body Systems?

    Functional Nutrition Lab is not a licensing body, and licensing laws vary by state and country. If you can legally practice as a health coach or other health practitioner, Full Body Systems is the best next step for learning how to practice confidently and effectively. Andrea is a stand for putting this information into practice because she knows the best practitioners are created that way. We encourage you to get started, even if it’s just one test client.

    We continue to see graduates of Full Body Systems create successful practices based on what they’ve learned here. FBS has given them the tools and the confidence to fulfill their dreams of really helping people.

    And if you’re located in the United States, here’s a resource that will help you figure out the laws where you live.

  • Will Full Body Systems help me grow my business?

    Full Body Systems has been the pivotal training for many practitioners who want to grow their nutrition businesses. Upon completion of this nutrition immersion program, you will have both the clinical and people skills to grow your business by referral.

    People want to get better, and when you’re able to solve cases that others found unsolvable, the referrals will likely begin to pour in.

    Full Body Systems is not a business program per se, but we teach practitioners to grow their business the old fashioned way: by doing great work that gets people talking.

    This training will help you build a thriving business—one where your clients become raving fans and you become known as the go-to practitioner.
