Vida Naturopathics offers in-personal consultations in Minneapolis (Lyndale Ave) & Hopkins, as well as virtual consultations.
Vida Naturopathics is a professional and supportive health and wellness clinic offering online and in-person naturopathic consultations, nutritional coaching, and functional breathing training. We are specialized in restoring gut health and in restoring functional breathing.
At Vida Naturopathics, we believe that true health radiates from within, and it starts with three essential foundations: gut health, holistic nutrition and optimal (functional) breathing. These core pillars are key to unlocking your body's natural ability to heal, thrive, and embrace life to the fullest.
Why Gut Health Matters
Your gut health is the cornerstone of your physical and mental well-being. It's not just about digestion; it's about vitality. It's a dynamic ecosystem that influences every aspect of your health, from your immune system, skin health, hormone balance, to even your mood and mental health.
Our Approach to Restoring Gut Health is Different - Nutrigenomics
Vida’s specialized approach to restoring gut health extends far beyond traditional methods. We embrace a nutrigenomic approach. Nutrigenomics studies how specific nutrients, and carefully selected high quality supplements, can influence gene expression. For example, we know certain foods or nutrients can activate genes that promote health and/or suppress genes associated with disease. This is an effective and powerful approach, as it enables us to support and up-regulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms. It is also a very empowering approach - we need not be a victim to our genes!
The distinguishing feature of this approach is its focus on addressing imbalances in the body "upstream." This means identifying and correcting the underlying causes of health issues, rather than merely addressing or suppressing the symptoms. Only by targeting the root causes, can we truly restore balance and support the body's innate ability to heal itself.
Your gut is the epicenter of health, and when it's out of balance, it can manifest in a wide range of symptoms and conditions. Whether you're grappling with autoimmune issues, digestive challenges like IBS, SIBO, or reflux, troublesome skin conditions such as eczema, allergies and/or food intolerances, hormone imbalance, impaired sleep, chronic pain, or respiratory concerns, we provide personalized recommendations tailored to your unique needs. Our approach not only brings rapid relief but also delves deep to uncover and address the root causes of your health concerns, bringing about lasting health and well-being.
Breathworks: The Power of Breath
Breathing is much more than an automatic function; it's a gateway to your physical and mental wellness. At Vida Naturopathics, we offer Breathworks consultations based on the Buteyko Breathing Method, a proven approach to restoring healthy, functional breathing. By optimizing your breath, you can unlock a wealth of benefits, from reduced anxiety and stress, to improved sleep, enhanced athletic performance, and relief from asthmatic symptoms. Our specialized techniques will empower you to harness the full potential of your breath and transform your life.

She then creates a wellness plan that is realistic and individualized to suit your needs. This is an empowering process for each client as they experience first hand the amazing healing that comes from a personalised & holistic approach. Beth's areas of expertise include restoring gut health (e.g. SIBO, IBS, autoimmune conditions, hormone imbalance, skin conditions, etc), men's health (e.g. ED, gut health, hormone balance, hair loss, and BPH), and restoring functional, healthy breathing via Buteyko Breathing Method based breathworks sessions.
Naturopathy is natural medicine healthcare that incorporates a wide range of alternative & complementary therapeutic treatments, to prevent and treat acute and chronic health problems holistically. While there may be a place in treating the symptoms to provide relief, the aim is always to identify the root cause of dis-ease, and treatment is focused on encouraging and supporting a person's innate self-healing processes, promoting a return to optimal health long-term.
Naturopathic alternative therapeutic methods include holistic nutritional advice, dietary enhancements, tailor made liquid herbal formulas, beneficial lifestyle recommendations, and where needed, high quality practitioner-only supplements. All products used are backed by scientific research to ensure their full efficacy and absorption into your body, to boost your health.
Herbal medicine is an integral part of natural medicine, that has a long history of use. Today scientific research is increasingly validating herbal medicine as we seek to understand the active chemistry of medicinal plants. Each plant contains many active ingredients that work synergistically to stimulate or strengthen the body's normal functions, and innate healing processes. These active ingredients or nutrients include vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, essential fatty acids and flavonoids. Herbal actions include immune boosting actions, supporting the body's stress response & nervous system, enhancing cognitive function, modulating hormone production, supporting the body's circulatory or cardiovascular system, and much more.
Proper supplementation with natural plant remedies aids the body in healing itself and preventing future illness and disease.
Our approach to restoring gut health and overall health is based on nutrigenomics. The term ‘nutrigenomics’ originated in 2004, and can be explained as “how our food affects the expression of our genes”. The foods we eat send signals to our DNA, and therefore, our food (and supplement) choices can determine whether we activate genes that promote good health – or genes that promote disease. This is a powerful approach, as it enables us to support and up regulate the body's natural healing mechanisms. It also enables us to address the underlying root issue, which is key to restoring health long term. As such, the science of Nutrigenomics is a guiding principle that underpins everything we do.
Our nutrigenomic approach to health and healing typically involves a combination of dietary recommendations, lifestyle modifications, and high quality natural supplements to support gut health, modulate metabolism, and promote overall wellness. This is a truly holistic approach that recognizes the interconnectedness of various bodily systems and aims to rebalance and optimize their functioning.
Buteyko Breathing Method
Named after Russian medical researcher & doctor Konstantin Buteyko, Buteyko Breathing is essentially breathing retraining. Dysfunctional breathing is extremely common & has a huge negative impact on our health. Signs your breathing is dysfunctional, include mouth breathing, frequent yawning, sighing, sniffing, waking with a dry mouth, and snoring. Conditions associated with dysfunctional breathing include asthma, sinusitis, allergies, hay fever, chronically blocked nose, sleep apnoea, snoring, reflux, constipation or diarrhea, impaired immune function, poor stress tolerance and anxiety. The way we breathe influences the functioning of our airways, blood circulation, our nervous system and emotional regulation, cardiovascular function, and oxygen release to the cells. Both adults & children suffering from these conditions can be significantly helped by use of the Buteyko Breathing method. This method can profoundly improve physical and mental health.
The Buteyko Breathing method is taught via a series of sessions, usually held about a week apart, with homework and daily practice to improve breathing patterns between each session. Over time, with application of the breathing exercises you learn, you will restore healthy functional breathing long term (via neuroplasticity), improving your health now and long term.
The Oxygen Advantage is a science backed breathwork training program developed by Patrick McKeown, an renown international expert in functional breathing. It incorporates a collection of breathing exercises designed to enhance your health and athletic performance. As an Advanced Oxygen Advantage Instructor, Beth is certified to guide you through this innovative programme, which centers on two core principles: restoration of functional breathing and simulated high-altitude training. Learn at a pace that suits you, whether online or in person. Oxygen Advantage focuses on improving how you breathe in all aspects of your life, including daily activities and exercise, to optimize your health and performance.
Beth is both an Advanced Oxygen Advantage instructor, and an Internationally Accredited Buteyko Breathing Method practitioner. Her breathworks consultations utilize whichever method is most suited to you, and can include a combined approach. Buteyko Breathing Method focuses on restoring healthy, functional breathing for anyone experiencing chronic symptoms and/or may have received a diagnosis for a specific health condition. Oxygen Advantage on the other hand, is incredibly helpful for anyone who considers themselves to be in generally good health, and wants to proactively support and/or enhance their health and wellbeing. This method can help high performers, take their fitness and sports performance to the next level. Each breathworks consultation will be highly tailored to suit each individual, so initially the focus may be on using the Buteyko Breathing exercises to address and resolved symptoms, however, subsequent sessions may be more focused on the Oxygen Advantage breathing exercises to take your physical and mental health to the next level, and really support you to be operating at your full potential.
