Diet and Lifestyle Counseling

Diet and lifestyle choices can have a major impact on health, but the best choices aren’t always obvious.

Everyone’s health picture and history is unique, and food and lifestyle choices can play a large role in health outcomes. A fad diet or lifestyle can make one person feel amazing but another feel downright terrible. This is where a naturopathic doctor with a background in functional medicine can help by determining the best choices available to you.

The fist place a naturopathic doctor will start when analyzing a health concern is the foundations of health, which refer to the basic building blocks that are needed to sustain or promote one’s well-being. The foundations of health include things like nutritious food, clean water, physical activity, adequate sleep, community involvement, exposure to nature, and spiritual connection.

Like a house built on a poor foundation, human health will start to have progressively worse issues without all of these foundations in place.

While the foundations can seem simple, there are often dietary or lifestyle habits we can change to better promote health and reduce the impacts of developing health concerns.

For example, a patient with an active infection may need to increase lysine-rich food sources while decreasing arginine ones to help the immune system work more efficiently. Sometimes this can even be the root cause of a disease. Our naturopathic doctor will work closely with you to develop a personalized diet and lifestyle plan that suits your specific needs. This plan will not only help you manage any existing health conditions but also prevent future ones.

We use functional medicine principles to guide our diet and lifestyle counseling. This means we look at your body as an interconnected system, rather than focusing on individual symptoms or diseases. We take into account various factors such as genetics, environmental exposures, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex chronic diseases.

We believe in empowering our patients with knowledge about their health. As part of our commitment to patient education, we provide resources on various topics related to natural health and wellness. Whether you’re interested in learning more about nutrition, stress management techniques, or the benefits of herbal medicine, we’ve got you covered.

At Virasoap Natural Medicine, we’re not just about treating symptoms. We’re about helping you achieve a state of optimal health and wellness. We’re about empowering you with the knowledge and tools you need to take control of your health. And we’re about supporting you every step of the way on your journey towards better health.
