Functional Nutrition and a Life Well Lived

Functional & Integrative Approaches for the Whole You

Functional & Integrative Approaches for the Whole You


Returning to our original vitality with evidence-based, evolutionarily conscious nutrition and lifestyle design.

At Vital Origins our approach to achieving optimal well-being is rooted in a functional and evolutionary perspective, backed by evidence-based strategies. We believe that an integral approach is necessary. That is why we use the term Lifestyle Design. To make the changes necessary to help us manage a chronic disease or take our performance to the next level, it is necessary to assess all the areas of our life and respond accordingly. 

Through a thorough intake and interview process we will help to give voice to your story. Listening to discover the root of the issue, we move forward to address the whole person. This is the only way can work to re-establish the harmony that is your birth right, your Vital Origins.


Vital Origins is located in Charlottesville, Virginia, however, we offer care nationally. For those residing in the central Virginia area an in person interview can be arranged. For those spanning the nation we utilize Skype for our interview process.
