Traditional medicine focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Once the diagnosis is
established, the diagnosis is cross-checked with the list of medications used to treat that
particular disorder. Often times, the medications chosen are merely treating symptoms, rather
than the root cause of the problem.
The integrative or functional medicine approach focuses on prevention and, when problems
present themselves, seeks to find the underlying cause. This approach is relatively simple
and consists of identifying those things that might be making you sick and eliminating them,
while at the same time replacing any identified deficiencies, be they hormonal or nutritional.
In the majority of cases it is not one recommendation that we make but, rather, a combination
of suggestions that lead to wellness.

Quoted in the Denver Post
Health care in a setting that promotes communication, compassion, and confidentiality. Patient
health and well-being are our main concerns and as we develop a long-term relationship with
each patient, we strive to advance their health and healing.
Our integrated approach to patient care combines the best of traditional Western medicine with
other techniques and procedures, including acupuncture, nutritional counseling and preventive
care among others. Our objective is to understand and treat the whole person, as opposed to a
narrow set of symptoms or concerns. Many of our patients, who have suffered for years with
chronic pain and distress, have found hope and healing through our integrated approach.
We look forward to serving your health-care needs. Please browse our Website or call us at
(303) 343-3121 if you have any questions or wish to make an appointment.
