Functional Nurse academy mission statement 

We strive to provide a parallel healthcare model that provides holistic care and addresses the root cause of disease.

What we Believe

The human body is magnificently and brilliantly designed by God and has the ability to heal. 

Informed consent is essential for providing individuals with the freedom to choose medical treatments and procedures.

Each person is bio-individual and the "one size fits all" approach is ineffective.

We believe in designing custom wellness plans based assessment and diagnostic data to meet individual needs.

Special interest groups often influence public health guidance. 

We believe that  research and  discernment are necessary for identifying reliable information
