On today's episode of The Health Detective Podcast, we have a SUPER special guest, Brendan Vermeire!
Brendan is not only an FDNP, but he is a pioneer in the functional medicine space, particularly around the topic of mental health. After struggling greatly with his own mental health (and watching the mental health challenges of a loved one), Brendan dedicated his life to figuring out the many reasons WHY there is such a widescale mental health crisis around the world.
Not only did he come to some amazing realizations, but he has put things together from the research that are truly unique. This is NOT your average mental health podcast episode, that's for sure.
We hope you enjoy this one, and if you have any follow-up questions, you may always reach out to us anytime at @fdntraining on Instagram.

Brendan is a Mental and Metabolic Health Scientist & Researcher, Functional Medicine Educator, Writer, and Speaker. He is a Board-Certified Holistic Health Practitioner, Master Nutrition Coach, Master Personal Trainer, USAW Sports Performance Coach, and Crossfit Trainer.
He began his career as a personal trainer and nutrition coach at the age of 18 after disappointingly being medically discharged from the United States Navy Seal training pipeline due to an injury. After being exposed to the power of functional lab testing in the start of his career, he began intensely pursuing that as a career path which has led him to be widely regarded as one of the top leading experts in Metabolic Health and Functional Education.
He is the proud owner and founder of the Metabolic Solutions Institute for Functional Health and Fitness Practitioners and the creator of the Functional Mental Health Practitioner Certificate Course (FMHP™). He is also the founder of the Metabolic Solutions Research & Education Foundation, a not-for-profit foundation dedicated to ‘changing the way the world views mental health’ through advancing the science of Mental Health Dysfunction. He is also the creator of The Mental M.A.P.™, a cutting-edge Lab Panel for Mental Health, and the NeuroCeuticals™ Supplement Line.
When he’s not educating doctors/practitioners/professionals, helping clients overcome their most severe health struggles, or producing cutting edge scientific education, Brendan enjoys all things fitness and is probably working out. He also enjoys anything in nature and any activities that expand his heart, mind, and soul.
