Vida Integrated Health

Functional Medicine

Vida’s Functional Medicine Physicians combine the perfect blend of conventional and naturopathic medicine. This unique approach combines the diagnostic skills of a primary care physician with a 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.

Functional medicine is a science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease. This is a whole systems approach which looks at the underlying causes of clinical signs and symptoms and addresses the root cause of the symptoms. In Functional medicine, there is an emphasis on gastrointestinal health, endocrine system, and the complex interplay between genes and the environment.

Nutrient Deficiencies

Functional Nutrition

Functional Nutrition focuses on building and restoring health by rebalancing 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.

Gut and Immune Health

70% of our immune system is within our gastrointestinal system. Addressing gut dysfunction is one of the first treatments for any chronic illness and immune/autoimmune disease. Anything from IBS, Crohn’s, Celiac’s, to thyroid disorders, Hashimoto’s, Grave’s, Multiple Sclerosis, psoriasis, arthritis, and many more benefit from proper gut healing and optimizing digestion.

Multiple Sclerosis

MS is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that affects over 1 million people in the US. Many individuals with MS may have increased “leaky gut”, formally known as intestinal permeability. In fact, a 2017 article found 73% of MS relapsing-remitting patients had IP vs 28% of healthy control subjects. If we can help support these leaky guts, we may be able to improve lives of people living with MS.
