Diet and Lifestyle Counseling

Seeing a functional nutritionist or dietitian in Meridian can improve overall wellness

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 medical doctor in Meridian + Boise, Idaho, with a background in functional medicine can help by determining the best choices available to you.

Diet and lifestyle choices can have a major impact on health, but improving your relationships with food can be challenging.

The first place a naturopathic physician 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. By assessing your nutrition and diet, our provider takes a holistic approach to recommend healthy lifestyle changes, design an optimal nutrition plan, and offer practical weight management guidance.

Healthy food for a balanced diet in Meridian, ID

Our functional medicine practitioner provides integrative recommendations:

  • medical nutrition therapy
  • medical weight loss

  • heart health

  • high cholesterol
  • improve gut issues
  • organic food choices

Our naturopathic and functional medicine wellness clinic provides holistic health options for every body

While the foundations can seem simple, there are often dietary, lifestyle, or nutrition related habits we can change to help patients improve their relationship with food.

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 nutrition education will not only help you manage 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 and well-being.
