FUNCTIONAL NUTRITION

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 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.

Conditions that our Functional Nutritionists work with: 

  • Obesity/Abnormal weight-gain
  • Hormone associated weight-gain
  • Pre-diabetes/Diabetes

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.

Meet Vida’s Functional Nutritionists.

 

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.

Food Plans Perfectly for You

Every appointment at Vida is tailored to your specific nutritional needs. So, what can you expect from a nutrition consultation? 

Initial Nutrition Consultations last a full 60 minutes because there is a lot to information to cover! First, we discuss what made you schedule the appointment in the first place. 

Nutrition and lifestyle changes can be complex and difficult. At Vida Functional Medicine, in collaboration with our functional medicine doctors and nutritionists, we aim to help support and guide you in the process of embracing these changes and discovering the healing effects of food.

After we’ve identified your priorities, we’ll discuss your sleep, physical activity, and stress level, which often reveals other areas we can improve with nutrition. 

Next, we discuss your current dietary pattern and liquid intake. What do you like about your diet? Is there anything you dislike about your diet? We also identify your priorities when it comes to your diet, such as convenience, family-style dining, restaurant dining, intolerances or preferences.

Once we have a complete picture of your current dietary environment, the nutritionist will develop a customized plan with actionable steps for you to take over the next few weeks.

These might include:  

  • Increasing intake of certain foods 
  • Prioritizing specific nutrients 
  • Additional laboratory tests that may be useful 
  • Symptom tracking 
  • Meal plan discussion (if a specific IFM plan is used) 
  • Meal timing 
  • Recipe discussion and sharing

Just like working with a personal trainer, one appointment won’t immediately provide the results you’re after. We typically schedule a follow-up appointment 2-4 weeks from your initial consultation to discuss how the plan is working for you and make any adjustments or additions as necessary.
