At The Functional Health Solution we understand what people are going through as they attempt to heal from complex health problems while trying to navigate through a broken healthcare system that at times creates more problems than it fixes.

Today’s client requires hope, optimism, and a clear path as they work to recover their health and return to normal function.

Hello there, I’m Andrew Gallinaro, CHC, BS

I’m a certified Functional Health and Nutrition Coach (CHC) and I founded The Functional Health Solution. I’ve been in the business of helping people of all ages get healthy for more than 19 years. I believe the current healthcare model has some challenges when it comes to helping people with chronic health conditions like diabetes, low thyroid, cardiovascular disease and obesity.

I have been passionate about health and wellness from a young age and believe the body has an innate ability to heal with the right combination of tools. I have discovered these natural solutions over my 19 years of study and research, and actual implementation with people that came to my office in very poor health, and have seen the outcomes they can produce for my clients.

I take an exhaustive investigative approach to understand not only what’s causing my clients health problems, but also works diligently to customize a solution and action plan that addresses their unique needs. Throughout my career I have been instrumental in helping thousands of clients how to reverse long-standing health problems.  My current focuses is helping people suffering from type 2 diabetes and low hypothyroidism and auto-immune conditions. 

As a functional health & nutrition coach—my top priorities are to:

Educate: Offer guidance and education about proper nutrition and eating habits based on each person is unique and there is no one size fits all approach.

Formulate: Create a detailed, goal-oriented action plan—tailored to you—to help you tackle your nutritional and health goals.

Empower: Coach and help guide you along your journey & experience the benefits of a healthy body, mind, and soul.
