I am an *Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. In 2014 I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in NY and am a member of (IAHC) International Association for Health Coaches.

Amanda received her training from Reed Davis at Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® in CA in 2015-2016. As a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner I help each client rebuild their health. FDN is a type of detective, that seeks to identify and correct the underlying causes and conditions that lead to the patient’s health complaints, while providing intelligent relief care. FDN bridges the gap between the medical community and functional medicine.
As a certified FDN practitioner, I can run functional lab tests (Blood, saliva, urine and stool) to identify HIDDEN malfunctions that need to be corrected in order to build health. I help clients work on the underlying causes and teach them a model of self-care, using the D.R.E.S.S. for Health Success® Protocol, so that they can take care of themselves and stay healthy for the rest of their life!

On August 2016 I graduated from the Hashimoto’s Institute which is taught by Dr. Alan Christianson, NMD, Andrea Nakayma, Nutritionist- CNE, CHHC, CNC and Dr. Izabella Wentz, Pharmacist- PharmD, FASCP. The mission of the Hashimoto’s Institute is to transform the treatment of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis worldwide through clinician and patient education efforts.

Because I was enrolled in the Hashimoto’s Institute, I was also able to attend Andrea Nakayma’s “Holistic Nutrition Lab: Reframe Nutrition.” I received frameworks to assess client care. In this “workshop” I learned NINJA-LIKE SKILLS that will allow me to:
*Find the root cause of my clients’ symptoms (Even the super complex cases!)
*Create client compliance without being pushy or overbearing
*Be recognized as a valuable and trusted leader of your clients’ healthcare team
*Become a vital player in the healthcare revolution (We are needed!)
January of 2019 I took two courses through Michael McEvoy’s Metabolic Healing school. These courses were: Functional & Nutritional Blood Chemistry Analysis, and Mastering Functional Lab Test Analysis.
This is how Michael describes these courses:
“1. Functional & Nutritional Blood Chemistry Analysis
When I made this course, my intention was to make it the most provocative and educational course on functional blood chemistry analysis in existence.
I teach 75 blood chemistry markers, but do so from the perspective of physiological function.
I also teach protocols for each part of the course, and give the student ample case study examples through which to learn. In this course, I’ve distilled and condensed my knowledge of blood chemistry analysis into this education-charged course.
2. Mastering Functional Lab Test Analysis
When I first released The Lab Analysis course, I dripped the content over the course of 4 weeks to a large group of hungry clinicians who all wanted to get the most cutting-edge clinical training and insights.
This course is charged with topics and information not covered in any other courses.
You will learn Organic acids testing, key insights from stool and GI testing, important patterns to look for in hormone testing.
The last module of the course features an hour long, in-person interview with Sandeep Gupta, MD on the subject of mold illness and CIRS.
Our Functional Lab Analysis course has become our most popular training program.” – Michael McEvoy with Metabolic Healing.
In February of 2019, I continued my education with Metabolic Healing and completed the Blood Sugar & Insulin Mastery Course.
This is how Michael, the creator describes the course:
“When creating the Blood Sugar & Insulin Resistance course, I intended to create a course that links together 4 key aspects:
• The cellular biology and biochemistry of glucose metabolism
• The most relevant blood chemistry markers
• The research literature for the most important nutraceuticals and botanicals that modulate glucose and insulin signaling
• A complete and effective 30-day Blood Sugar Optimization Program that ties together: testing interpretation, diet, and therapeutic protocols.” – Michael McEvoy with Metabolic Healing.
I also have personal experience with overcoming autoimmune diseases such as Crohn’s and Hashimoto’s. You can read by personal bio and story here: https://amandagoodwin.biz/about-bio/

If you’re like I used to be, you have likely been struggling to find the right doctor, the right tests, understand lab ranges, and the best medications for your body. You’ve likely tried a number of diets and strategies that haven’t worked.
I know how frustrating this can be, and how confusing it is to try to make sense of all the conflicting information out there. That’s why I put together this guide! ~ Top 5 Tips to Optimize Your Thyroid!
