What is Integrative Medicine?

Experience evidence-based medicine that promotes root cause healing with...


Aspen Integrative Medicine works hard to combine the best parts of conventional and naturopathic medicine to produce remarkable results for your health and wellness. Our medical team seamlessly blends together naturopathic medicine, functional medicine, physical medicine, neurofeedback, and a host of other modalities to provide a superior level of care. Our providers frequently collaborate on patient cases and share ideas to maximize treatment outcomes. We firmly believe our integrative medicine approach is the future of medicine. It is our mission to combine traditional medicine, conventional “allopathic” medicine, and cutting-edge therapies to create a higher “standard of care.” We will forever be looking for more innovative ways to better serve you and your health care needs.

What is integrative medicine?

Integrative Medicine is a healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person, including all aspects of lifestyle and environmental influences. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapies including conventional, naturopathic, and functional medicine modalities. Conventional medicine is probably what you think of first when it comes to medical care. It frequently includes your primary care physician and/or specialists who prescribe pharmaceuticals and surgery. These forms of treatment are quite useful in certain situations, but too often just suppress your symptoms instead of addressing the root cause(s). Integrative medicine offers a truly holistic approach and calls upon a wide variety of treatment modalities to help you recover as quickly, safely, and fully as possible.

Who can benefit from integrative medicine?

Aspen Integrative Medical Center routinely uses integrative medicine to treat both acute and chronic illnesses including:

    • Primary care and general concerns
    • Fatigue
    • Chronic pain, headaches, migraines, and so forth
    • Gastrointestinal disorders
    • Autoimmune disease
    • Hormonal disorders including hypothyroidism
    • Women’s and men’s health concerns
    • Acute and long COVID-19
    • Lyme disease and other tick-borne infections
    • Mold illness
    • Chronic inflammatory response syndrome (CIRS)
    • Musculoskeletal injuries
    • Neurodegenerative conditions
    • Dementia and cognitive decline
    • Traumatic brain injuries and concussion

You can also take an integrative medicine approach to anti-aging and other wellness goals that have nothing to do with a disease or injury.

What treatment types does integrative medicine offer?

Integrative medicine can take a lot of different forms depending on the patient’s stage of disease and personal preferences. Your care plan at Aspen Integrative Medical Center often includes more than one type of treatment. After a thorough intake, physical exam, and lab testing, your physician will provide you an accurate evaluation of your condition and prescribe you an individualized treatment plan.

Your integrative medicine treatment plan may include:

    • Dietary and lifestyle advice
    • IV therapy
    • Craniosacral and visceral manipulation
    • Nutraceutical supplementation
    • Pharmaceuticals
    • Chinese medicine and acupuncture
    • Botanical medicine
    • Depuration and detoxification strategies
    • Massage therapy
    • Low level laser therapy
    • Heavy metal chelation therapy
