You are an individual

How we approach your health

At FxNA, we’ve taken the teachings of Functional Medicine and customized them for nutrition and lifestyle counseling. Our unique approach allows us to reveal the source of your suffering and create a customized nutrition and lifestyle solution for you.

We work from two foundational truths:

1. You are unique.

Your physiology, and your symptoms, are the way they are today because of myriad factors which are singular to you. You do not fit into a formula. You are not a statistic. You are an individual with a particular history, body and lifestyle. You also have goals and dreams that are unique to you. We work with all of these factors to create a custom-made plan for you.

2. There are likely many root causes to your symptoms.

Alzheimer’s researcher Dr. Dale Bredesen coined the term “36 holes in the roof” to describe chronic illness. There are many factors to your suffering, and you need to address them all. There is no single pill or protocol that will help you get well. We need to help you find all the holes in your particular roof, and plug as many of them as we’re able. This is our commitment to you.

What makes our therapeutic plans so successful?

We have created a unique approach that looks at all aspects of your history and your health, and our process gives us a deep, intimate understanding of what makes you, you.

There are four steps in our unique process:


  • We help you remove the top inflammatory culprits in your diet and lifestyle.
    We call this “clearing the muddy waters.” This step aims to reduce systemic inflammation (the cause of so many symptoms) and helps you see what is going on in your body that is unique to you. We consider this a “non-negotiable.” Without taking this step, it’s hard to go to the next level of care.

  • 2

  • We work with you
    We take into consideration your current situation, life demands, preferences and unique history so that we can create a custom plan that feels right to you and evolves with your progress and your needs. We check in along the way and work with you to adjust as necessary.

  • 3

  • After we clear the muddy waters, we focus on the symptoms that still remain.
    We take a careful history, listening to all aspects of your story, in order to identify triggers and root causes in your past and present life. Through this process we also aim to address any deficiencies that might be getting in the way of your healing. These may be nutrient or lifestyle deficiencies.

  • 4

  • We’re with you every step of the way!
    That means partnering with you and any other providers on your healthcare team that understand the need for a collaborative approach. We ultimately believe that today’s health challenges are best served by practitioners and patients working together. You shouldn’t have to go through this alone!

 Our work is most successful with people who are willing to make significant changes in their diet and lifestyle in order to get better. For more information and details, you can read answers to common questions about the FxNA approach.

Reviews from Past Clients

“I would not have a Health Coaching practice today without Andrea Nakayama and her team at Full Body Systems. They “put the meat on the bones” of what I learned when I became a health coach.”

“Andrea’s teaching style is engaging and informative, backed by research and many years of clinical experience.”

“Full Body Systems has been one of the best nutrition courses I’ve ever taken. Thanks to Andrea and her team, I now have amazing tools to help my clients and it has made me stand out from other health coaches in Latin America. This program is well worth the investment. Thank you so much for helping my practice grow to the next level!”

“Andrea isn’t just teaching physiology or pathology. It’s how to go in and solve the puzzle…. She changed everything about how I look at how I can help people. She’s amazing. Brilliant.”

“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 merges with food. This is EXACTLY what Andrea teaches. She brings in tough scientific concepts and transforms them to be easy to use with clients right away.”

It’s time to get to the root causes of your health concerns so you can finally feel better.
