Meet Doctor Emi

Doctor Emi Hosoda MD is dedicated to helping each patient and body composition client to live their best life. With the right approach, it can be possible to make your 40’s, 50’s and 60’s, and even your 70’s, be as vibrant as your 20’s. Having transformed her own health and her family’s health as well as the lives of thousands of patients through the power of root cause medicine, she seeks to continually transform the lives of those who work with her. Dr. Hosoda combines knowledge of a Board Certified Internal Medicine MD with experience in hospital, ICU and complex internal medicine care with the passion and lifelong learning of a lifestyle transformation physician. She has spent many hours on additional training in holistic and functional medicine.

Dr. Hosoda does not shy away from diagnostic challenges or difficult medical issues. Believing in the power of each person to be their own best healer, she works diligently to find the root cause of the problems her patients are facing. Although she was trained at some of the top institutions in the country in conventional medicine, she utilizes holistic, natural and lifestyle solutions first to help patients whenever possible. This attention to detail and passion for her patients led to Doctor Emi being selected as one of Seattle’s Top Doctors in the Seattle Metropolitan survey of her peers. When asked “Nominate a physician you would take your own family member to if they had a medical issue” her peers selected Doctor Emi. She was one of the few physicians in private practice in a rural area to ever receive this honor.

Doctor Emi Hosoda is the originator of the Vibrant Body System, a scientific, lifestyle-based solution that empowers women 35+ to live their best, most energetic, most beautiful and most vibrant life, while aging backward from the inside out and achieving their ideal body composition. Our middle years can be our most wonderful years and Doctor Emi is here to get you there.

Doctor Emi helps make weight loss simple by customizing fat loss solutions uniquely to the person. Using tools that address body, mind and spirit, Dr. Emi helps each person get to the root cause of what might be causing their challenges. She does this by testing for what makes each of us unique- our unique genes which can control which diet and exercise is best for us, our unique hormone balance, our unique mind body wellness, our unique food sensitivities, our unique intestinal health. Doctor Emi also utilizes a functional medicine questionnaire which gives a detailed life history, as well as information about lifestyles and stressors–all of these factors can hold keys to making weight loss simple. Doctor Emi also helps make weight loss a journey in aging in reverse, becoming more beautiful and vibrant as you lose weight by supporting your skin and muscles with proper supplementation unique to your specific needs as you lose weight. Having lost 100 lbs and 15 % body fat by using this specific information to help her after a lifetime of weight struggles, Doctor Emi is passionate about empowering others to do the same. Getting answers unique to you and finding the root cause of where your struggles with weight came from and how they can best be corrected in a way that is specific to you and no one else.
