what other practitioners say about holistic nutrition lab

I took Andrea Nakayama's Full Body Systems course and can honestly say it was the best decision I have made for my private health coaching practice. Full Body Systems has taken my practice to a whole new level as I now feel incredibly confidant guiding my clients through various digestive, immune and endocrine health concerns. Full Body Systems is an absolutely invaluable tool for any health care practitioner who is looking to help their clients on a deeper level by getting to the root cause of health concerns. Andrea is a masterful teacher and one that you must have in your corner moving forward in your respective practice! Andrea's approach to functional nutrition is the future of health care and I can say with confidence that Full Body Systems is already making waves in the health and wellness industry.

When I met Andrea Nakayama, I was about to graduate from IIN. I thought I was a good coach in the making, but had a little bit of self-doubt. I was fortunate enough to have trusted my gut instincts and I dove into her Full Body Systems course. It literally catapulted my confidence and my practice. The very first intensive was rich with content, immediately usable information and actionable steps that I incorporated into my digestive health coaching practice right away.

Within a month, of having taken the Digestive intensive, I had attracted new clients, was able to help them so much more effectively, and was inspired to teach one of my favorite smoothie workshops, with a new liver cleansing twist.

I am so pleased - my clients are having tremendous results with healing their digestive health and more, because everything is connected.

I can sum up Andrea and her ReplenishPDX FBS program in one word... BRILLIANT! This program has connected many of the dots that were missing in my health coaching training. I now feel so much more confident and qualified to work with my clients, who often come to me with many chronic conditions... such as diabetes, obesity, hypothyroid, metabolic syndrome, cystitis, high blood pressure, acid reflux, Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis, menopause and hormone disruptions, anxiety and depression. My first ah ha came in the very first module on digestion. I was able to use the Done-4-You handouts immediately with my very next client... and feel confident that I knew how to proceed in following the recommendations for their specific condition. These invaluable condition-specific handouts cover what the condition is, why it is a problem, along with the solutions including foods to eat and not eat, supplements and herbs and lifestyle. Plus, Andrea's teaching style and multifaceted approach kept the learning fun and engaging for even the more difficult physiology material. I highly recommend FBS as an invaluable training for every coach in the health and wellness field and am incredibly proud to be a graduate!

I come from a research background and often find wellness courses thrown together and rather light. I appreciate Andrea's comprehensive and well-prepared teaching style. Her discussions, handouts, and links are helpful to me when I'm learning as well as later when I help clients. Thank you Andrea!

Andrea's Holistic Nutrition Lab filled in the gaps and really rounded out my nutritional training. It has given me the confidence to work with clients that have chronic conditions like Fibromyalgia, Hashimotos and whatever else comes up because as I was taking the program these kinds of clients were magically presenting themselves to me. I am able to work with them and meet them where they are to discover how we can work together to realize their full potential and health. It's amazing what and how you learn in HNL. I find Andrea to be unique in how she teaches, explaining the underlying biology for health conditions and how to be a detective for your client's underlying condition so that they can heal. This program is a gift, it towers above any other nutritional training that I've taken!

Shelly Foland
www.simplyeatrealfood.com

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 could merge with food. This is EXACTLY what Andrea teaches. She brings in the tough scientific concepts that I geek out over and transformed it into easy-to-understand content and practical application strategies that we could use with clients right away.

Not only did this transform the way I looked at my own personal health issues, but it gave me a much deeper understanding of the intricacies of every system in our body and how they work synergistically to keep us upright.

I have so much more confidence in what I do after being apart of HNL for the last three years. I don't think I would ever not take this course, as Andrea improves on it each and every time.

I am so grateful that I found out about HNL and Andrea. It has been the BEST education I have received to date and is priceless in growing my business.

Thank you Replenish!

I could not have chosen a better course to accelerate my health coaching practice than Andrea Nakayama’s Digestive Intensive.

I signed up after Andrea’s talk at a TED Conference that made me realize that I needed to know more about what this woman had to say.

I am thrilled to say that this course really "blew my mind!" Andrea presented the course with such clear explanations and diagrams of the many areas involved in the human digestive system. She made the course material easy to “digest” – so to speak, and added in a fun-loving approach to the month-long program.

I loved being part of a large community of like-minded people to be able to hear and listen to various points of view. I was amazed that Andrea answered 95%, if not more, of the questions asked on the “message board” by the participating audience. And, that, to me, was very comforting as I revered her knowledge on this subject.

Thanks to the Digestive Intensive and Andrea Nakayama, I was able to use some of the information I gleaned to help my son-in-law through a bout of severe pain due to ulcerative colitis. It was amazing to see the results he experienced and is still experiencing.

You can make an investment that is comfortable for you and you come away with way more than you can ever imagine.

who am I? let me tell you a little bit about myself here

Andrea Nakayama, CNC, CNE, CHHC
Founder, Replenish PDX and Holisitic Nutrition Lab

I have been in the health and wellness field for over 20 years and I'm still learning and updating my knowledge. Andrea and HNL is one of my go to learning places. If you want to take your practice to next level of excellence you don't want to pass this opportunity up. Remember you're worth it. The more you improve, the more your clients improve.

Greg Ashby

HNL has given me so much knowledge and the skills I've acquired through this training have really taken my practice to the next level.

Gina Hickman
www.ShoreHealthy.com

Through Andrea's very straightforward and easy to follow teaching style, Holistic Health Lab /Full Body Systems has really transformed my life and my practice. Each week, Andrea took scientific principles about human physiology and broke them down into simple steps – discussing concepts that, for someone such as myself who does not have a medical background and has never taken a huge interest in science, surprisingly unleashed the science nerd within! (That would be my biggest moment of revelation for sure, especially since I couldn't wait to learn more from one week to the next.)

Not only has my confidence increased ten-fold as a result of my participation in this program, it's also expanded my vision for how I can best serve my clients, and also to really hone in on my niche for healthy aging.

Earlier, I'd worked with a business coach who encouraged me to focus on diet alone, specifically the gluten-free diet. And while that is still the foundation of what I do, I always knew that healing your body needs to be about so much more - encompassing lifestyle and environmental concerns, along with cleaning up your diet. Andrea's teachings gave me the tools and the information I needed, to in turn give my clients exactly what they need.

Karen Trubner-Kent
www.designahealthylife.com

From the start, Holistic Nutritional Lab has been my go-to resource. Andrea's expertise has helped me reach a new level of understanding what's going on with my clients' health. This new depth in understanding gave me the confidence I needed with clients and in creating classes of my own. It allowed me to truly step into the role of educator, where I am helping clients connect the dots in terms of not only what foods and lifestyle choices will work for them but why those choices are specific to them and their physiology. In addition, the community on the message board was invaluable. Being able to not only interact with Andrea, Megan, and Andie, but the other participants made it feel like a real community of learners

Jamie Siwinski

FBS has grounded my life. I was swimming in a soup of ideas and business niches after getting my CHC. I was stuck in confusion, and I knew I had to take this valuable course filled with a solid foundation of the physiology of the body. Andrea is artist and genius educator combined. What she has created is a new model of nutritional care for everyone. Near the end of the course I found my confidence skyrocket and started talking to people in the birthing community about what I now have to share. They want me to educate their mothers-to-be. Without effort I am seeing my business unfold.

My life has transformed because of Andrea and her classes. From reading about her approach and philosophy on her website, I knew I had finally found a perfect fit for me. The combination of the live on-line classes (recorded to listen to at another time if you can't make it), the expert guest interviews, the message board for asking every question possible that didn't get answered in class, the live one-on-one clinicals — for specifics about how to work with clients — the tech support staff, the image gallery for visuals, the mini You Tube tutorials to help us further grasp anatomy or physiology, the impeccable lectures meticulously prepared and presented funneling down incredibly complex information into terms we can all understand, the on-line store offering the Replenish' staff favorite supplements, the recipes, the guided cleanses and detoxes.... these are a few of my most favorite things about studying with Andrea and company.

Further, it is reassuring to know that Andrea is a work in progress herself, continuing to tweak and tune her own nutrition support plan, while sharing with us throughout. This gives us permission to begin to help others even when we are addressing our own health issues. Andrea's generosity is beyond measure — her time, materials, and mostly how present she is with each of us. And what an amazing community to be a part of! Although many of us have never met or spoken to one another, by the time each class is completed we feel compassion, empathy and deep caring for all of the fellow students we collectively shared our time with. And, how about going to school at home — in your dining room, in your yoga pants, t-shirt and slippers, drinking tea (or even cooking!) and watching the birds. Sure beats enduring traffic, parking, time wasted on getting to and from school...

My wish? We have a ReplenishPDX Summit gathering and meet each other in person!

Holistic Nutrition Lab's Full Body Systems has been a truly transformative experience! Over the years I have taken many courses and trainings on nutrition and wellness. Full Body Systems has provided me with a much deeper wisdom and confidence in how to use nutrition for true healing. This course is not just more information, it's beyond that. It's like a lens inside the body to help uncover 'what's going on in there' as well as presenting a new way of living. Not only is the course amazing, but Andrea is a highly intelligent, compassionate and giving teacher. She goes above and beyond to ensure that this very complex information is presented in a way that can be easily applied for the most benefit for our clients. It is also evidence-based, which is important to me. Being able to ask Andrea and her lead nutritionists, Megan and Andie, questions during the course has also been invaluable. Not to mention the many bonus sessions Andrea provided with top leaders and innovators in the nutrition field! This course has been one of the best investments I have ever made and I would highly recommend it. I'm so grateful I found Andrea and holistic Nutrition Lab!

Kamron Keep, RN, BSN, NC-BC

I now feel able to further embrace my target market and connect with them in a way where I can be a true coach and guide. As a coach, I was looking for a 'missing link,' something that would give me a more stable foundation to work from with clients in a more professional way, and this course provided that foundation.

I was drawn to Andrea and her program. She is someone who is constantly striving to learn more, experiment and share her knowledge with others in a collaborative way that makes continuing this learning exciting. Andrea is passionate about her work and she passes that energy on to her students. Andrea is a gifted teacher who makes complicated Health Science concepts easy to assimilate and share with your own clients. I would highly recommend Andrea's classes. Learning from Andrea will enhance whatever knowledge you already have of Health & Nutrition.

Andrea is the master of the analogy and makes it so easy to understand human anatomy from a perspective of how FOODS AFFECT OUR HEALTH. I find myself repeatedly going back to her recordings and transcripts.

I've got so much to share about holistic nutrition lab! come watch and learn. Click on the first video thumbnail so that i cab explain what HNL is...

This program was one of the best investments I made in my business because it gave me the education that I did not receive prior in order to round out my knowledge base without going back to school full time.

Since I have taken Digestive Intensive:

  • I have been able to raise my session rates (this reflects increased skill as well as confidence)
  • I am more aware of the tests that can be offered for specific types of clients’ needs
  • My clients see faster results because I can offer them a more effective and concise healing plan
  • My understanding of an integrative treatment plan for the client has increased and I can more effectively work with other practitioners with this plan.

Elizabeth Hirsh, CHHC
Certified Holistic Health, Functional Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach

I am always looking to deepen my nutrition knowledge and skills to better serve my clients. I jumped at the chance to participate in Holistic Nutrition Lab - Full Body Systems and learn from Andrea Nakayama. Andrea is not only an exceptional practitioner, but also an inspired educator.

As a functional nutritionist herself, she really gets the challenges our clients are faced with and how to approach them. experience in putting foundational knowledge of physiology and nutrition into practice was more valuable than any textbook or traditional nutrition training course I have attended. As a result, my confidence in my abilities as a practitioner has skyrocketed!!! I can't recommend this program highly enough for anyone seeking to learn the science and practical application behind nutrition concepts.

Andie Jones

Andrea answers the "how" to my "what". As a health coach I love helping guide people in making healthier decisions, but I desperately want to help my clients discover the root cause of their ailments rather than simply manage their symptoms.

When I first heard Andrea's mantra "what's going on in there" I felt like somehow she had been in my own head, listening to my thoughts.

Although I have always had an interest in food and a healthy lifestyle, I never got excited about anatomy or biology in school. With the current SAD state of our health in this country, having a keen understanding of food and how it moves throughout the body and why it does or does not release nutrients is crucial to healing chronic illness.

Andrea is the master of the analogy and makes it so easy to understand human anatomy from a perspective of how food affects our health. I find myself repeatedly going back to her recordings and transcripts to help connect the dots with my clients’ symptoms.

If you are thinking about training with Andrea, stop thinking and start doing. You will not regret it.

Brent Kaluhikaua, CHHC

HNL/Full Body Systems education gives me the scientific edge and confidence to "figure it out" when applying whole food nutrition to human physiology...it's not just about getting more greens, exercise & meditation. (Although those things help!) ;-)

what physicians say about working with andrea

“Andrea is a world class nutritionist with a huge depth of experience in not only the biochemistry of food but also actually making the information real for people with recipes, anecdotes and “how to” advice. She is dynamic and brilliant and I am thrilled to call her my colleague.”

Dr. Leigh Ann Chapman
www.chapmannd.com

“Andrea is gifted at identifying the root causes of dis-ease and using food as her tool to find a graceful and efficient path back to wellness.”

Dr. Liz Wallace
Naturopathic Physician
ahealingpractice.net

“It is rare to find someone so knowledgeable, so thorough, so dedicated, and so effective in helping us understand, as she would say, 'what's going on in there.' Andrea Nakayama is that person. Her gift is to be able to practically teach clients and health coaches alike how to decipher, like Sherlock Holmes, a nutritional riddle that is unique to you. If I myself had a nutritional challenge, I would call Andrea.”
Venu R. Julapalli, M.D., Gastroenterologist, Co-Founder of Conscious Medicine
www.conscious-medicine.com

“Andrea Nakayama is a nutrition goddess. Her knowledge of foods and how they affect the body is mindboggling.”

Dr. Jennifer Karon-Flores
Naturopathic Physician
www.nurtureclinic.com

“Andrea is a wonderful and wise team member. When we work together to co-manage patients' cases, I know that they are getting top-notch nutritional advice from someone who also intimately understands functional medicine. I have confidence that Andrea will understand, support, and enhance my treatment recommendations.”

Dr. Travis J. Elliott
drtraviselliott.com

After graduating IIN, I felt really excited about coaching clients, but I didn't have the confidence that I'd be able to support clients with specific health issues. Holistic Nutrition Lab Full Body Systems changed all that. Andrea is extremely knowledgeable about the different body systems, how they work together, and how nutrition and lifestyle affect them. She teaches in a style that makes it easy to grasp complex scenarios. I regularly refer back to the done-for-you protocols and the message boards when working with clients and creating presentations. Holistic Nutrition Lab was definitely the piece of the puzzle that gave me the education to go out there and coach with confidence!

Cheryl Dexter
www.cheryldexter.com

Within a few minutes of Andrea Nakayama's free call on functional nutrition, I was hooked.Finally someone that spoke my language, that wanted to talk about WHY things happened in the body. Someone that wanted to understand what was going on. This was the training that I thought I should have gotten in my initial health coach training. Plus, Andrea's style of teaching makes it easy to learn. I had been told that I "knew enough" already. But I knew I needed more. And I found it through Andrea Nakayama and Holistic Nutrition Lab. As a result, I am finally confident in my abilities as a coach and have found the right direction for my business.

Barbara McNeely
www.mariposanaturals.com

Full Body Systems has made such a positive impact in my life by allowing me to become very aware of how my body responds to food, both good and bad. I have learned how to listen to my body and become in tune with which lifestyle choices are working for me and which ones I can release because they are not serving my body in a healthy manner. Andrea's teaching style was fluid and easy to understand. The lectures in addition to having the transcripts available to go back and review were a huge benefit to me. I found that reading the transcript after listening to a lecture allowed me to absorb the material better. My education through Full Body Systems has propelled me to another level and has built my confidence to take on more complex clients. I am able to hold a positive and educational space for them to learn how to listen to and support their body throughout their journey to wellness.

Brooke Tidball

When I first learned about Andrea's work and Full Body Systems, I knew it was the ideal program for me. I was successful with my health coaching practice but I had a deep desire to work more in the functional nutrition realm. I wanted to help clients connect the dots of their symptoms and truly heal with nutrition. I wasn't sure how to gain that knowledge or make that shift until I found Andrea!

Taking Full Body Systems has literally transformed my own health and my work. The understanding of the digestive, immune, and endocrine systems that I gained during FBS helped me heal digestive and immune issues that I had been dealing with for a long time. For my business, FBS gave me the confidence to work with clients at the deeper, functional nutrition level. I started attracting my ideal clients, getting referrals from doctors, receiving invitations to speak, and loving my work even more.

Andrea is an amazing mentor and teacher. She dives into the complex topics but always brings it back to simple things that you can do to help a client heal. Her depth of knowledge is incredible but it's her ability to truly listen to clients and hold the space for them so they can heal that is the most inspiring to me. I am so grateful that I signed up for FBS and started studying with Andrea!

Caroline Stahlschmidt
www.elevateyourwellness.com

Full Body Systems has not only changed my practice but it has changed my perspective on what I can accomplish! This series of classes has increased my knowledge base in such a way that I had the confidence to work with a more seriously ill client that the regular medical community had given up on. My biggest revelation came when working with a client and with one piece of advice, he was able to implement the change and lose 15 pounds within one month's time. This may not sound like a lot but, he has been trying for years to lose weight and he could not make it budge. His physician was urging him to have bariatric surgery. He came to me as a last resort to avoid surgery and he had HOPE for the fist time in many years that he could improve his health with diet changes. This was life-changing for him as it was for me as a coach!

Prior to taking this class and other classes that Andrea has taught, I would not have had the ability nor the breadth of knowledge to tackle the variety of health issues my clients are experiencing. It has made me a better coach because I now have a larger scope of understanding of many different health issues and conditions. My clients are able to see results and improve their health with the information I am able to extend to them — all thanks to the training that Replenishpdx.com offered. Andrea's teaching style is way above and beyond what I have received in the past. She is able to make very complicated medical terms and conditions easy to learn and remember. She is easy to understand, she answers all questions and she is capable of making you want to learn more and more of each of the topics she covers! And that is the sign of a great educator, that she inspires YOU to do and learn more! I cannot thank you enough for all that you have done for me and my practice!

I believe 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. With the complicated issues that are out there today, there is no way that I could have successfully navigated my way around. Andrea has such heart, and she delivers what she promises, and then more, and then even more after that. I also am very comfortable conversing and partnering with those from the medical field (where before FBS I was quite intimidated because my background is not even remotely science or health related). I get so excited when I read a complicated medical article now and I understand it! I am so happy that I followed my gut and signed up for FBS!

Deb Regan

Andrea is the impassioned teacher you never want to leave. She teaches using a perfect blend of emotion, story, faith, science, technicality, and evidence. She consistently over-delivers. As her student, I was present to her loving embrace and determination that I be equipped with the critical thinking skills that gave me the confidence in my practice to successfully spread my wings and fly.

Brian Hedgpeth
www.pivotalmomentshealth.com

The decision to invest with 2013 Full Body System was one of the best decisions I have made in my wellness career. TOTALLY worth EVERY penny I spent. Andrea Nakayama is EXTREMELY giving with her materials and knowledge plus she is very transparent about herself and her own struggles. I am one very happy customer due to the fact that Andrea OVER delivers on the materials. You will get the recordings and the transcripts so you can learn at your own pace. For me, there were two big moments of revelation from going through the program. The first one was the Nervous/Brain Intensive which helped me to understand why I struggle with some thought processes and how I can support my brain. The second was going through the Reproductive Intensive and having forum discussions with Andrea and her team — which was awesome! I learned that I need to work on the emotional side of my infertility, digging deep to free some of that pain with nourishment and by creating a space of expression so that I can embrace all of me and to help other women who are having this experience as well. Many thanks to Andrea and her team for creating an amazing and empowering program!

In High School, I hated science because it was boring, complex and didn’t use my imagination. Then, I signed up for the Holistic Nutrition Lab: Full Body Systems and went from a “science avoider” to a “science embracer!”

Andrea took those complex topics and made them simple to understand while fun to learn. Her multi-sensory presentation honored my visual learning style and I loved taking the quiz to test my knowledge! I never thought I would ever say I loved taking a Science Quiz but the Holistic Nutrition Lab made it fun! Now, when a client comes to me with a health issue I am confident that I can help them. I am able to take the symptoms and create a protocol that is simple and easy to implement.

If you are ready to take your business to the next level; then you need Holistic Nutrition Lab. Not only will you receive expert knowledge that is easy to understand but Andrea is the Ultimate teacher and mentor.

Holistic Nutrition Lab brought me a much higher level of understanding of how our bodies work. Andrea is masterful at presenting complicated concepts in an approachable, understandable, and even entertaining way. My confidence has increased and my practice has filled, as I'm able to meet my clients exactly where they are, and I am able to see a much broader picture for them. Andrea and her team have filled in so many gaps in my knowledge base, and I am a much better health counselor for it. Thank you, Andrea!

who am I? let me tell you a little bit about myself here

Andrea Nakayama, CNC, CNE, CHHC
Founder, Replenish PDX and Holisitic Nutrition Lab

When I review the last 10 months I cannot believe how I learned from FBS. Even though I have a master's degree in human nutrition, I found these classes offer more practical and clinical information. Every class was full of "ah-ha" moments. I spend my leisure time reviewing modules, reading the message board, and listening to the lectures—I love the way Andrea explains difficult concepts. I have to tell you that there were several times during the live classes that I was brought to tears! I was learning so much—it was overwhelming! I secretly want to be "just like Andrea"! I am HAPPY to be able to take FBS for the second round... thank you for the opportunity!

Donna Mills
www.yourfoodandfitnesscoach.com

The FBS course was such a great step for me. I have been practicing as a Health Coach for a few years but couldn't really find my groove. Andrea's FBS course was a great fit and just what I was looking for. I needed the background of how the body systems work together to make sense of nutrition. Looking at the body and symptoms clinically gave me so much more insight. This is a field where we need understanding, broad knowledge (anatomy, physiology, symptoms), and system interaction knowledge in order to field each client's concerns from a fresh, unique perspective.

I have learned to feel confident yet humble. There is so much more to learn in this field and I must stay humble and open-minded in order to connect with each client, keep up with the latest science, and empower each client so that they know they are the expert on their body and I am joining them on their journey to better health. I love and can so relate to Andrea's style, how she promotes and conducts her program. I'm naturally drawn to the flavor and style of all her work. (I extend those thoughts to her team!!). I knew right away — this is what I want to do and this is how I want to conduct my practice. And I have plenty of learning ahead of me.

Through the course and my concurrent personal health journey, I have come to better recognize how health challenges are gifts. These gifts include maturing and growing so much more and faster, maximizing your life purpose, appreciating simple yet beautiful aspects of family and life, and learning to find support and sharing your life.

Another important lesson that I strengthened during the course is allowing time and being patient with healing. It's important that it is portrayed to a client right from the get-go. We must always step back to the basics and work through the layers. Does that sound familiar?!

The last main point is that FBS solidified for me in many ways how gut health is at the root of all body functions, symptoms and health challenges.

Just loved it!

Carla Ferrara

I have been so impressed with Andrea Nakayama and Holistic Nutrition Lab. The information in her classes has been invaluable and I really feel they are better then some of my college classes. The format allows for me to review over and over again with the transcripts, audios, and videos. How could I go wrong? This information continues to give me learning and to give me confidence to make great decisions for my clients, knowing that they will gain some of this knowledge that I have learned. It was well worth the cost and I thank Andrea and her team for making such a huge contribution to the health of the world.

Beth Schupanitz

I am so glad that I decided to make an investment in Andrea Nakayama's Digestive Intensive, and ultimately in her Full Body Systems course.

As an Institute for Integrative Nutrition graduate and a Certified Holistic Health Coach specializing in digestive issues (especially those related to Celiac and Gluten Intolerance/Sensitivity), I wanted to dig more deeply into the how/what/where/why/when of digestion.

Not only did I find that Andrea's teaching style lent itself beautifully to the material, I found that I was able to immediately put what I learned into action, even after just the first class. The sense of accomplishment that I had after coaching a client newly diagnosed with Celiac, with a myriad of other health issues, was well worth the cost of the intensive ten times over.

And when I spoke with my client the next week, seeing how the changes I suggested helped improve her health in such a short time, I was thrilled beyond measure.

I am a huge advocate of Andrea's classes and would suggest that anyone interested in furthering their studies on how our bodies impact our health should run, not walk, to study with Andrea Nakayama.

Andrea has a unique ability to take the complicated and make it easy to understand and applicable to my daily practice. As a result, I am partnering confidently with medical practitioners, taking on more clients, and seeing real results.

Words can't express how happy I am with the caliber of education I have received through Replenish PDX. Andrea has a unique ability to take the complicated and make it easy to understand and applicable to my daily practice. As a result, I am partnering confidently with medical practitioners, taking on more clients, and seeing real results. I'm thrilled! Andrea is not a mentor, but THE mentor to choose if you are looking for a strong science-based yet practical education in functional nutrition. I am continually grateful.

Signing up for the Digestive Intensive with Andrea and Holistic Nutrition Lab was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. In just the first class I felt like I had made great strides in furthering my knowledge base and feeling more prepared for my work as a health coach.

The material is thorough and very well presented – very detailed but in a way that you can grasp it (even if it’s not your background – trust me, I’m a former accountant and I was able to hang in there!). The amount of information provided in the sessions is amazing and then there are also handouts and protocols and a message board to further support the learning process.

On several occasions I’ve posted questions and all them have been answered quickly by Andrea or her team. Not only are they thorough and helpful responses, but they always offer additional encouragement as well. It feels like you are working with them one on one, even from your living room!

I have had several meetings in the past week alone where I was able to talk to medical professionals and other individuals with confidence and with the right “lingo”. It not only felt good personally to realize how much I was learning, but added a lot of credibility for me as a new health coach.

If you are looking to expand your depth of understanding of the body and functional nutrition, I can’t recommend this enough. It’s well worth the investment and then some. Andrea has a wealth of information and a sweet spirit that you don’t want to miss.

Andrea's Full Body Systems is a must for every aspiring health coach. Andrea makes complex physiology easy to understand and explains each body system and its maladies from a nutrition perspective. Each well-designed "intensive" comes with lots of reading material, images and video links. The HNL staff is super-supportive and the forum community offers an additional wealth of perspective and information. I highly recommend!

Holistic Nutrition Lab has enabled me to take my nutrition counseling skills above and beyond what I ever could have dreamed of. I always feel confident leading clients down their unique path to health and I know that with my deep understanding of how the body works, I am able to communicate to each client what the best nest step is. Holistic Nutrition Lab is the best education and I am so thankful that I get to be apart of it each step of the way!

Andrea Nakayama's Holistic Nutrition Lab course is one of the best things I have done for my practice. Taking this course has transformed my business by elevating my confidence dramatically. It has enabled me to take on clients I would have never felt I could, and get amazing results. The information is detailed, but taught in a way that it is easy to grasp and understand, and apply with clients. The handouts, recordings, transcripts, bonus materials and support she provides are worth their weight in gold. I have referred back to them many, many times. I have learned so much! I am so very grateful for Andrea Nakayama, and to be a part of the future of nutrition with her!

Each time I do one of Andrea's cleanses or programs ( I have lost count, but I think 6 so far) I am blown away by how easy she makes complex information "digestible"and how much I learn about my body and brain connection and the food I eat. Andrea is one of my "secret tools" i keep in my tool belt for health!!!

Holistic Nutrition Labs has given me the confidence to handle clients with health issues. Through Andrea's program, I gained a much deeper understanding of anatomy and physiology than I had before I started. We didn't learn much A&P in health coaching school. Andrea's teaching style is delightful; she is witty, interesting, and incredibly smart about how the body works. She peppers classes with interesting tidbits that I never heard any place else. Her functional nutrition approach is unique. I know that the time and money spent on the program were a great investment for my practice.

I am so grateful for Holistic Nutrition Lab. It has helped me develop a working understanding of all systems of the body. It has opened the door to so much more learning as well. I have so much more confidence to work with clients, and as I support a functional medicine doctor, it has allowed me to understand the protocols he is using, and be in a better position to support my clients. I have such a love of learning all this, all because of how Andrea has communicated the materials. Her teaching is outstanding, and I really can't thank her enough. The highlight of every week has been anticipating Andrea's classes. I love attending live, and listening again...there is just so much wonderful information. And when an issue comes up with a client, I now have so many resources to go back to — not to mention the wonderfully supportive Message Board! And also, the other teachers have been wonderful as well! Taking this class was an easy yes, and I am sooooo grateful beyond words.

I've taken many programs, classes, workshops and trainings throughout my life and I'll admit that I am addicted to learning. Yet, somehow as a health coach, I felt I didn't know "enough". That changed when I discovered Full Body Systems with Andrea Nakayama. In a word, brilliant! I think Andrea is a gifted teacher as well as clinician. She has the genius of presenting complex information in a way that makes it meaningful, understandable and implementable. When FBS first started, I looked at it like any other program, but it didn't take long for me to know I had just given myself a tremendous gift and within two weeks I had the confidence to move forward as a health coach. A bonus to the program, is the resource of the message board where FBS trained coaches find meaningful information, unlike other coaching portals filled with misinformation. While I will continue to learn as a health coach, I can approach learning with a renewed meaning; a hug between friends, rather than a clutch to a lifeline. Thank you Andrea, you are indeed changing lives!

I've got so much to share about holistic nutrition lab! come watch and learn. Click on the first video thumbnail so that i cab explain what HNL is...

I started my journey as a holistic health coach about a year ago and was so full of excitement but also confusion and intimidation after finishing school. Like many health practitioners, my path was influenced by a traumatic personal experience that woke me up to our broken "healthcare" system, the toxicity that surrounds us and the power that lies within each of us. I have been searching for programs, educators and mentors that focus on the root cause, that see how beautifully complex our systems are and how to approach it with curiosity and confidence — HNL and the Replenish team are it!

I am so grateful to have found Replenish PDX and enrolled in HNL. Best. Decision. Ever. These past 9 months have been full of discovery, depth, illumination, and play. I don't think I've ever learned so much smart and applicable information in such a short amount of time. My confidence and ability to help my clients has skyrocketed and I can now more fully step into that role of practitioner and partner in their health journey.

Since starting FBS, I have partnered with a popular pilates studio and now do monthly workshops. My clients are seeing real results... one of them just told me she's finally pregnant after working with me for 3 months (she's been trying for a couple of years) — and that was before we made it to the reproductive intensive! I'm also seeing results in my personal health as I take what I learn in HNL and apply it to my own life.

Andrea is masterful in her content presentation and delivery. I feel as though she has become a great mentor of mine. Thank you and the Replenish team from the bottom of my heart!

Holistic Nutrition Lab is a phenomenal program and it has absolutely changed the way I work with my clients. Andrea is amazing at breaking down complex science and making it completely understandable It’s truly a gift of hers. You’ll find yourself wanting to listen to the classes when they’re scheduled and then wanting to go back and listen again because they are just THAT good. Each time I tune in I do so with a more “trained” ear after continued application of what Andrea has taught me.

Andrea will teach to specific conditions and how that might appear in testing, as well as providing baseline protocols for treatment. I like to think of Andrea as a detective. She’s amazing at seeing the big picture and peeling back the layers to discover the acute problem. This is what she’ll teach you to do.

You’ll get a deep understanding of how the digestive system works, how dysfunction in the digestive system causes immune and mental health issues, and how nearly all healing begins with gut health.

Admittedly, I was on the fence about signing-up for HNL. There are so many trainings and certifications offered for health coaches. Plus, as a mentor coach for the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I see so many new coaches paralyze themselves under the guise of one more training until they're "enough." I wanted to be sure that HNL didn't take my eyes off my own growing, health coaching practice.

Well, I'm so glad I carved out the time this year! Not only did Andrea make this course fabulously flexible, but also easy to reference. Lectures to exercise by! Transcripts! Reference/book lists! Not only did you pour your own heart and soul (and all your past training) into the course, but you shined a spotlight on other speakers and perspectives. You left the functional medicine door ajar for us to peek in and learn.

Professionally, my focus has been on the gut and poop for five years. It was awesome to hear you speak to the body's other functional systems, but encourage people to critically think and consider the gut. HNL really helped me further distill the interplay between the systems and concisely convey it to my clients and students. It gave me more language and resources.

Thank you, Andrea, for performing alchemy on such a deep, personal loss to create something so beneficial for the rest of us.

I have been following and participating in Andrea's seasonal cleanses and detoxes through her Replenish PDX website. I have become a seasoned cleanser and am about to launch my own detox program. I would not have the knowledge base or the confidence to run my own detox program if it weren't for all of the education and experience that I have learned by participating in her programs. She has changed my life forever in the best way possible. I am forever grateful, Andrea!

After taking Holistic Nutrition Lab's Digestive Intensive course it didn't take much for me to sign up for Full Body Systems. I went into the course with the hope of solidifying my knowledge of the human body along with my confidence in working with clients. I learned something new every single class, whether it was regarding what ways to best support the thyroid or how to get a client to "back it up" and look at the big picture in their healing process. I am definitely a hands-on and very visual learner and Andrea's style of teaching and explaining the very complex and intricate workings of body systems was just what I needed to take my business to the next level.

Holistic Nutrition Lab's FBS has breathed new life into my practice. I am now able to offer my clients much more comprehensive and insightful coaching, which helps improve their outcomes. Their lung health improves because they are better able to fight infections and inflammation with the improved coaching I am able to provide. My biggest revelations from the program are how interactive the gut is for overall health and how hormone balance is imperative — especially for those on oral steroids. Andrea breaks complicated processes of the human body down into easily understood bites and puts them together into a full meal that you can readily digest. I am now able to offer programs that target my coaching niche. The information in the FBS program has added to and refreshed my earlier education in medical biology and respiratory therapy. I have been very glad to have participated in this transformative experience.

The Digestive Intensive was amazing and completely special... more than I imagined.

The amount of information, and the thorough, concise way in which Andrea teaches is something to marvel at! I also loved the way the class content, surprise bonuses, and other materials were so well organized and easy to access.

The Digestive Intensive rekindled my excitement and confidence as a health coach. It opened the door to Holistic Nutrition Lab: Full Body Systems and I am completely inspired to continue learning with Andrea and her team. I could not be more excited to be a part of this community and the ongoing amazing experience!

I couldn't be more pleased with my decision to complete Holistic Nutrition Labs Full Body System course work. Each class helped me connect the dots for myself and my clients. It really helps to understand the WHYs. It helped me and my clients! I have gained so much confidence as a health coach. Highly recommend it!

As a coach, I was looking for a 'missing link,’ something that would give me a more stable foundation to work from with clients in a more profound way, and this course provided that foundation.

I was interested in how this course dives deeper into several body systems while still viewing them in relation and as part of a whole. I also was very much interested in learning to “peek under the hood" in a more sensible way then modern medicine does.

The forum was a big part of this experience, sharing info and insights, and learning from questions from others. I noticed a major shift in confidence working with clients! I now feel able to further embrace my target market and connect with them in a way where I can be a true coach & guide and articulate a plan from where to start.
