VitalLife: Rethinking Wellness 


With the surge in health anxiety that swept across the globe during andafter the pandemic, many people have realized that there are proactive measures they could take to lower their risks of disease and lead longer, healthier lives. The healthcare space has seen a paradigm shift toward wellness initiatives that help people make simple modifications to their everyday activities to become healthier.  

VitalLife Scientific Wellness Center, a subsidiary of Bumrungrad International Hospital, one of the best and largest international hospitals in Thailand, reels out wellness packages and programs to help people rethink their well-being and lead healthier lives. VitalLife, driven by innovative solutions and the need to deliver the most vital healthcare needs with advanced cutting-edge treatment solutions, has curated several wellness plans for people to rewire their bodies for happiness and longevity. 

VitalLife wellness plans cut across several aspects of well-being including mental health, aging, stress management, sexual health, weight loss, gut health, and musculoskeletal health. The offerings are personalized and tailored to meet the individual needs of each client. 

Integrating genomics into well-being, VitalLife Scientific Wellness Center unlocks the secrets hidden in the genome or DNA that helps people to identify their future risk of disease, their metabolic profiles, and what diet or lifestyle modifications are suitable for their journey to a healthier life. Using the cutting-edge genetic screening technology of VitalLife Scientific Wellness Center, people can make informed decisions about their health based on their genetic profiles. 

For instance, if genomic analysis reveals a risk of breast cancer or colon cancer, a person can adopt targeted wellness shifts and even preemptive treatments to mitigate the risk. Similarly, with nutrigenomics, one is able to understand how certain diets affect their overall health based on their gene profiles. This, in turn, helps people identify the ideal diet for them and the appropriate ratio of proteins, carbs, and fats that their bodies need to maintain an ideal weight and health. 

Blanket dietary recommendations do not yield the same results for everyone and may not work for everybody, therefore, it is important to tailor these plans to the physiologic and genetic needs of each person. 

VitalLife Wellness Center also offers a wide range of mental wellness offerings in the VitalLife Brain Health Program, a personalized program that helps people identify specific problems or risks impacting their mental well-being, with individualized solutions based on these findings. The program especially helps people at risk of or with early symptoms of neurocognitive impairment, helping them with wellness activities to lower this risk or reduce the rate of progression of the condition. 

The mental wellness program also offers solutions for people with mood disorders and chronic fatigue, with extensive investigations to understand the drivers of these symptoms, and curate unique solutions, including lifestyle and behavioral changes, to improve these symptoms. 

VitalLife Wellness Center also runs the Healthy Sleep Program/Package, which helps people with a number of sleep problems, including insomnia, narcolepsy, and sleep apnea. The sleep program also follows the same principles of personalized care, offering solutions tailored to the needs of each individual.

The team at the Healthy Sleep Program take a holistic approach to providing solutions to sleep problems, basing recommendations on sleep test results, a client’s medical history, and other unique physiologic parameters. 

VitalLife also has a weight loss program that offers personalized weight loss solutions for people struggling with overweight or obesity. With offerings that include gut health analysis, intestinal profile, CoolSculpting and X-wave, Vanquish and X-wave, and weight loss medications, VitalLife curates numerous options for people to achieve healthy weight without compromizing other aspects of their health. 

The program combines nutrigenomic recommendations with tailored exercise program and medical treatment to achieve healthier weight, thus, lowering the risk of chronic problems, including high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. 

VitalLife Wellness Center also offers ozone therapy, which has extensive benefits in improving immune health, improving blood circulation fighting off infectious agents, and also reducing inflammation.   

Other supportive treatments offered by VitalLife Wellness Center include heavy metal detoxication coordinated in the Chelation Therapy Clinic to rid the body of potentially harmful toxins and heavy metals, and a Sexual Health Program that offers a variety of solutions for a wide range of sexual health problems, including erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, and hypoactive sex drive.
