About Vida Lifestyles

Our Approach

At Vida Lifestyles, we have a ‘Wellness’ approach to your health. The main difference between this approach and standard medical care is that Wellness care seeks to stimulate your natural healing ability. Wellness care does not add drugs to the system, instead it removes anything that might interfere with normal function. Wellness care trusts that the body knows what to do if nothing were interfering with it. Standard medical care, on the other hand, seeks to treat a symptom by adding something from the outside – a medication, a surgery or procedure.
