Reclaim Your Health with functional Health Coach Ana Yazdi
Ana can help resolve conditions such as candida, leaky gut, gas, bloating & other digestive issues, inflammation, hormonal imbalances & more.
Ana had me do a food sensitivity test. From the results, she guided me successfully through adapting my diet to resolve my issues. This helped me resolve my rosacea, which I had no idea was caused by candida and an imbalance of bacteria in my gut. I now have a much better understanding of my health and I feel so much better!

Does this sound like you?
- You’ve normalized your health challenges and are suffering in silence.
- Your health issues are getting in the way of you living the life you want to live
- You know you need to change your diet, but you need guidance and direction.

Some conditions FxMed can Resolve:
Inflammation can be the root cause of many illnesses including chronic pain, mood disorders, autoimmune illnesses, and gastrointestinal disorders. Inflammation can be lowered and managed with things such as diet and lifestyle shifts, detoxification and stress management
In FxMed, we have a popular saying - ‘most diseases begins in the gut’. This is because the majority of your immune function happens in the gut. Just as your skin forms a barrier to the world outside of your body, your gut forms a barrier inside your body. Keeping your gut healthy includes keeping the lining of your gut healthy, having a healthy balance in your microbiome, having regular bowel movements, and nutrients.
A food sensitivity is an immune reaction to food that isn’t a classic IgE mediated allergy.These reactions are often delayed and symptoms may not appear until 72 hours after exposure. Symptoms can affect a wide range of body systems including skin issues, fatigue, brain fog, weakness, reduction in exercise tolerance, arthritic pain, stiffness, itching, rashes, migraines and more.
Hormones do not act alone. When one hormone is affected, it affects all the rest. Everything from diet, stress, lack of sleep and your ability to detox affects your hormones.
Did you know that ~90% of your serotonin and 50% of your dopamine is made in your gut? There are more and more studies showing the link between gut health and mood disorders. FxMed is in the forefront of this understanding. Other things that affect mood include diet, stress, poor sleep and genetics.
Chronic, persistent fatigue can have a variety of root causes, including food sensitivities, toxic overload, nutrient deficiencies, infections and more.
Brain fog can originate from nutrient deficiencies, gut and hormonal imbalances, and toxic overloadBrain fog can originate from nutrient deficiencies, gut and hormonal imbalances, and toxic overload
Extended periods of high blood sugar leads to diabetes and metabolic disorders. Studies are now showing that metabolic disorders cause oxidative stress and impaired mitochondrial metabolism, leading to diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. The good news is, if it’s not too far along, diabetes can actually be reversed!

Many times, the root cause of skin conditions begin in the gut with things like candida, leaky gut and nutrient deficiencies.
What is Functional Health?
The goal of functional medicine is to optimize health by addressing the ‘root cause’ (origin) of illnesses.
It’s a holistic approach to healing – meaning it integrates modern science with other healing modalities.
FxMed doesn’t separate body parts from each other, or mind from body. FxMed approaches the body and what it needs to heal from a place of knowing that 'it's all connected'
Example; imbalances in the gut can manifest as skin issues, depression, pain, autoimmune challenges and more.
In FxMed, client and practitioner are in a partnership. This helps clients step into their power when it comes to their health
FxMed is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses modern day health needs. By shifting from traditional disease-centered focus - meaning, waiting until you have a full blown disease to prioritize health - to a prevention-centered approach, FxMed focuses to resolve health challenges that may turn into full blown disease down the road
Ana specifically focuses on what’s considered the foundational aspects of health in FxMed -
Gut health, Nutrition, Sleep, Stress Management, Toxicity and Detoxification, and Hydration.
When the foundation of your health is balanced and in harmony with each other, your body is able to function at its best and often times, can auto-correct health issues on its own
What approach does fxMed take ?
FxMed takes into consideration your entire health history – from as far back as when you were cozy in your momma’s belly, as well as lifestyle and environmental factors.
All aspects of your life are important 'clues' to your current state of health.
The FxMed model facilitates healing by restoring balance and bringing
mind and body back into alignment with each other
Although symptom relief is an aspect of FxMed, practitioners also look to identify and resolve the original root cause of health issues. This often requires a commitment from clients to some lifestyle shifts, including diet & stress management, but also leads to a more permanent resolution in health challenges, rather than temporarily masking symptoms
Functional medicine can be used to treat a wide variety of chronic conditions, such as allergies, skin conditions, autoimmune diseases, digestive disorders, hormonal imbalances, and mental health conditions.
Functional medicine can help identify and treat the root cause of disease, rather than simply treating symptoms. This can lead to improved overall health and well-being. Additionally, because functional medicine takes an individualized approach, it can be tailored to each person’s unique needs and circumstances.
Because functional medicine involves a more holistic and individualized approach, it can be more time-intensive than traditional medicine. Also, most insurances don’t cover fxmed, which means most costs are out of pocket
Functional medicine uses a variety of techniques to help restore balance within the body. This may include nutrition counselling, stress management techniques & mind-body therapies.
Each person’s treatment plan is tailored to their unique needs and circumstances.
Yes, many people find that they can integrate functional medicine with conventional treatments such as medication or surgery in order to maximize their overall health and well-being. However, always speak with your healthcare provider before making any changes to your current treatment regimen.
