What is Functional Medicine?

by | Jun 5, 2020 | Health & Wellness, Immune Support, Video

Functional medicine combines conventional, naturopathic, genomic, and anti-aging medicine for the management of disease and optimization of health. This unique approach combines the diagnostic skills of a primary care physician with philosophy and treatment rooted in the healing power of nature. Functional Medicine determines how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual.

“Vida Integrated Health is the only Functional Medicine & Primary Care clinic in the greater Seattle area on an insurance-based model.”

Functional Nutrition

Functional Nutrition focuses on building and restoring health by rebalancing the proper physiological functions of the body through food as medicine. Imbalances due to vitamin/mineral deficiencies, poor digestion, malabsorption, bacterial overgrowth, and chronic inflammation can be realigned with personalized, nutritional interventions. In addressing the root causes of illness and dysfunction, we will work together to optimize your health and vitality.

A functional nutrition consultation involves a thorough discussion of your recommended functional medicine food plan and lifestyle changes as well as clarification of how to optimize your food plan in a sustainable way. We will also have a conversation about your personal goals, potential obstacles to these goals and the importance of mindset and maintaining a healthy relationship with food. Nutrition and lifestyle changes are complex and difficult.

At Vida Functional Medicine, in collaboration with our functional medicine doctor and nutritionist, we aim to help support and guide you in the process of embracing these changes and discovering the healing effects of food.

Vida is offering our Functional Medicine services at our Vida Ravenna and Vida Bellevue clinics.
