About Reed

Over 20 years ago, Reed recognized people were caught in a “cycle of trial-and-error” and committed himself to be the last person they needed to see. With guidance from top leaders in alternative medicine, he reviewed thousands of labs for thousands of people and made his own observations about who got better and who didn’t. Over a ten-year period, Reed developed a lab-based, step-by-step system of identifying “healing opportunities” and “contributors to Metabolic Chaos®” that anyone can use, including health coaches. 

Armed with comprehensive lab data and using only all-natural, drug-free protocols, he codified the “general principles of health building”. He was soon outperforming “specific treatments” being offered by standard and even functional medicine practitioners. Today these unique systems are known as Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® and the D.R.E.S.S. for Health Success® programs and are trusted by thousands of practitioners worldwide to get results. The mission? “To educate as many people as possible how to get well and stay well naturally so they, in turn, may educate others” and put control of one’s health in the people’s hands where it belongs! When not teaching and helping his graduates build their businesses, Reed can be found landscaping, gardening, or riding his motorcycle.
