Seattle Functional Medicine
At Vida Functional Medicine, we combine conventional, naturopathic, genomic, and anti-aging medicine to provide a comprehensive framework for disease management and health optimization.

When you’re doing all the right things, from a Functional Nutrition point of view, there are other things to consider to figure out the unexplained weight gain, thyroid dysfunction, hormonal imbalances or high-stress levels.
Our nutrition team are masters-level trained Functional Medicine Nutritionists who address all things lifestyle medicine oriented. While food is foundational to health, our nutrition professionals go beyond. Digestive health, sleep, exercise, and more are only part of their intake and treatment approaches. Our providers use DEXA scans, continuous glucose monitoring, and nutritional intake trackers and work closely with our doctors to guide their patient’s success.
Vida’s Functional Nutritionists recognize the challenges of implementing lasting change, so they guide their patients with detailed methods of integrating food preparation within their daily routine. Their goal is to support patients to impart sustainable and enjoyable changes that fit within their lifestyle to not only heal, but thrive with sustained energy and endurance, stable mood, consistent sleep, no cravings, and no digestive issues or bloating.
Our Functional Medicine trained Certified Nutritionists at Vida offer fully insurance-billable services. Our nutrition team’s knowledge of Functional approaches is extensive and while our nutrition team cannot diagnose or treat a specific health condition, their knowledge of Functional approaches is extensive and they work closely with our physicians for guidance and mentorship. Lifestyle is the foundation of Functional Medicine. It starts here.

SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth)
Regenerative medicine starts with the HEALTH of the individual, not just the procedure or technique used to accelerate change. Our musculoskeletal regenerative medicine program, led by Dr. Michael Corsilles, uses the philosophy “health from the inside out” to optimize outcomes in procedures like PRP for joint and tendon healing.
At Vida Integrated Health, Regenerative Medicine is focused on developing and applying Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) to heal cells and tissues and restore function lost due to aging, disease, damage or defects.
We know that where you choose to get a medical procedure performed is a big decision, and when choosing a clinic, you want assurance you will have the safest and best outcome possible. This is why at Vida Functional Medicine we use a four-step approach to our Regenerative Medicine Program.
Step 1: Consult with your Functional Medicine provider and ensure you are a good candidate for your procedure of interest.
Step 2: Get as healthy as possible prior to your procedure. This step is unconventional but we consider ESSENTIAL. Platelet-rich plasma, a critical part of most of our Regenerative Medicine procedures, is autologous meaning it comes from your OWN blood. The cells are only as healthy as the person making them. While we can’t do anything about age, we can optimize areas like inflammation, blood flow, and nutrient status. This process may require only a few weeks of work or it may entail several months. Our goal is never to become an assembly-line procedure clinic. We’d prefer a slow and steady approach to maximize positive outcomes.
Step: 3: Schedule and complete your procedure.
Step 4: Begin rehabilitation treatment at Vida Integrative Health with our physical therapy team to enhance your body’s ability to effectively reconstruct and restore the tissue with the newly available PRP it has recently received.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) Treatments Include
PRP with guided Ultrasound
Trigger Point Injections
Longevity Medicine is about maximizing our health-span while enhancing quality of life. We use diagnostics like VO2 max and sub VO2 max testing, DEXA (bone and body composition analysis), cardiovascular screenings for plaque, genetic analysis for neurodegenerative conditions, and blood testing for early detection of cancer. Combined these evaluations help to formulate a lifestyle management program to improve life for decades to come.

Sexual health is crucial for overall well-being, yet it is often overlooked. Issues such as loss of libido, sexual dysfunction, and diminished arousal response can be frustrating and lead to mood disorders like anxiety and depression. Combining this with hormonal changes and cardiovascular risk factors can result in a lack of sexual satisfaction.
At our clinic, we take a Functional Medicine approach to sexual health, utilizing advanced procedures and an attachment theory lens to optimize the mental, emotional, and physical components necessary for a fulfilling sex life.
Our Functional Medicine approach is a personalized approach to your sexual health care including assessment of hormones, nutrient status, and mental health.
We go beyond basic hormonal assessment to help you achieve the best version of you and look at all the prerequisite steps for libido activation, physical response to arousal, and ability to achieve orgasm in both men and women.
We use natural and pharmaceutical agents to support our patients in addition to cutting edge therapies like Acoustic Wave Therapy (Shockwave) and PRP (platelet rich plasma) for erectile and orgasm enhancement, in men and women, respectively.
Sexual Health Procedures Include:
Female PRP Shot for Orgasm Enhancement
Male PRP Shot for Erectile Enhancement
Shockwave and Acoustic Wave Therapy for Women & Men
