Practitioner Spotlight – Maggie Reinke

1:15 –    Brandon discussed Lesson 8 update – Testing food sensitivities. Sample consults now available – Midterm, Lesson 6, Lesson 7, Grads will have full access to these, trainees will need to take the quizzes to have access.

2:20 –    Brandon announced Grads.

3:25 –    Brandon Introduces Maggie Reinke.

5:25 –    Maggie’s background – what brought her to FDN. Maggie’s symptoms were abdominal pain, bloating, and digestive issues. She worked at a research hospital – wanted to get out of research and do something she was more passionate about.

7:00 –    Maggie worked with Chris Kresser – helped her to feel better and she enjoyed the process.

8:00 –    Wants to help people more, research less.

12:00 – FDN testing on herself helped her to understand better (not just depend on someone else to tell her what to do), it helped her to take responsibility for her own health. Maggie tries to educate her clients now so it gives them power to help themselves and to heal.  She wants to help clients to learn to think for themselves.

15:50 – Maggie says she learned when to stop giving info to the client – sometimes it was too much information for them.

17:00 – Maggie learned that some clients couldn’t take all the information she was giving all at once.  She remembered she made all these changes over years.

18:15 – She tailors the education to the individual.

20:00 – She discussed who she works with.

21:50 – Conditions she sees a lot/How she works with people: 1-Foods (right and wrong foods for them), 2-Digestion, Gut – labs to assess and help them make the changes. She has some complicated cases where there are several practitioners involved.

27:30 – The biggest challenges/obstacles she comes up against when working with people: 1) Financial – a lot of the time it’s people’s priorities needing to be shifted. 2) Changing the way people eat – it’s a HUGE shift in thinking for some people.  Some are more willing to make lifestyle changes over food changes.

32:00 – She asks her clients questions to help them come to the conclusion on their own.

34:20 – How she thought she was going to work, isn’t how it worked out.  She found the people she was working with really needed coaching.

38:00 – She found it to be very helpful to by clear from the beginning with clients about what to expect.

39:00 – She talked about how your system won’t be perfect from the start – it will change as you gain more experience and knowledge.

44:00 – She decided to face her fears of public speaking so she would have the opportunity to help more people in her community.

46:00 – Outflow affects your inflow – Get out of your comfort zone and you will grow – that is KEY in being successful.

54:40 – Marketing – what she uses right now is word of mouth, referrals, other practitioners – she is looking into diversifying this.

56:00 – In the beginning of starting her business everything was hard because it was so new.  Slowly building the business has been good for her – Steadily increasing over time so she could maintain balance in her life

57:00 – She had to set boundaries for herself because she wants to learn and study so much. What you have and where you’re at right now is enough to help a lot of people out there.

If you are defending, you are depleting

Any symptom or any disease can arise from any stressor or number of stressors

Education of the client is our greatest work

Stick with and trust in the process

Right expectations and client motivation come from right understanding

Clients need to have faith in the process

It’s okay to threaten to fire a client if they are not compliant

The more difficult the health challenge, the more strict you have to be as a practitioner

Bill’s opinion of genetic testing/MTHFR

40:30 – Commission on ordering labs, PLP, how FDN’s charge for kits “I have had an FDN Practitioner ask me whether I knew why we don’t get commissions on lab tests.   The question has come about because in Jordan and Steve’s promo materials for their PLP course, they discuss the extra income they have made in this way.”

44:00 – Medications, pharmaceuticals, getting off of meds safely “I am considering some potential clients that are using pharmaceuticals.  I know we can never tell a person to come off pharmaceuticals or change their dosing but I was under the impression there was to be some education or examples given on how to deal with clients that wish to come off their drugs, especially SSRIs. Do you have any experience with this or how do you handle conversations around the drugs or do you have a network of doctors you know that will titrate clients off. “

Special Guest Dr. Bryan Walsh

6:00  Being selective on who you work with

13:00  Different types of practitioners

16:00  Take an inventory of who you are as a practitioner.  You can’t be all things to all people, but there is room for all types/styles of practitioner

18:00  Working primarily based on referrals

19:00  Looking healthy on outside, but not on inside.  Diet and exercise not enough.

20:00  Fat Is Not Your Fault history.  Dr. Walsh’s fitness background, lies of fitness industry, discovering weight loss with clients without exercise

24:00  Healthy body = healthy body weight.  Diet and exercise will work better when other pathways are fixed.

25:00  Good effort just wrong focus. High cortisol messing everything up.

29:00  Belly fat issue

31:00  Reducing cortisol using phosphatidylserine, immune system connection

32:00  Treating test results vs asking “why” / reasons for it

33:00  People present differently.  Any symptoms from any stressor.  No specific protocols for specific condition.  If get good results, great; if little to no results, look deeper and at different pathways.  Become a good practitioner so you don’t have to rely solely on lab results.

36:00  Reed’s one diagnosis: Metabolic Chaos.  General principles vs specific treatments

37:00  Ask “why”.  Diagnosis will handcuff and limit a practitioner

42:00  Great vs mediocre practitioners ask “why” and not just raising or lowering something.  Could it be protective or could you be harming someone if you only focus on raising or lowering a number?

45:00  Don’t treat the test results; they are not the problem, they are the result of the problem.

46:00  Truth about Adrenal Fatigue.  Multiple physiological reasons for low cortisol.  It’s adrenal suppression not inefficiency.

52:00  Be humble, willing to learn and change and admit when wrong

55:00  Fat Is Not Your Fault and Metabolic Fitness both great courses, good reviews, the course Dr. Walsh wished he had when he started

  • When testing for food sensitivities which lab is the most sophisticated? MRT, MT, Cyrex #4 and #10 which are recommended by FDN? I recently ran all three along with Meridian Valley within the same month and have different results.
  • How does creatinine factor into test results?
  • Is Matula Tea necessary if taking Biocidin, BioTonic, Pyloricil, Candicid Forte, and G.I. Detox? Will the Bio Matrix protocol alone, without the Matula Tea, eradicate H. Pylori? Or conversely, if I use the Matula tea, do I even need the Pyloricil?

Ask the Mentors!
  • Is it common and/or possible for pre and menopausal women to become estrogen dominant… when there was no estrogen dominance before… as a result of progesterone levels decreasing so significantly with menopause… relative to estrogen also decreasing as well?
  • Do you think it’s common to get false negative readings from the Genova IP test?
  • A client feels she has had issues with her teeth yellowing, since taking the recommended hormones on the 90 day protocol.
  • Do you have a favorite multi vitamin for toddlers or any must have supplements? I’m struggling to get my 2 year old to eat at times so I want to make sure she I nourished and immune system supported as flu season approaches
  • Is it possible to eradicate pathogens/ heal the gut if heavy metals are around? Do heavy metals need to be addressed first? I’ve heard the gut needs to be strong enough to deal with heavy metal detox, but can heavy metals hold the gut healing back?

  • What is FDN and what it’s not.  Diagnosis and treatment vs Lifestyle Coaching.
  • Our only tool is DRESS
  • What to do when you feel inadequate or like you don’t “know enough”
  • How long is it safe to take the program enhancers (hormones like DHEA, pregnenolone, progesterone, and melatonin)?  While these are only supposed to be used temporarily until the body stressors are reduced and body function is returned, how long can they safely be used if function has not returned yet?
