We accept all major forms of payment: cash, check, credit card, and debit card. We also accept Health Savings Accounts (HSA) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) as payment for services provided.

We do not treat conditions or diseases but rather work with the human condition. From the perspective of naturopathic and Chinese medicine, any human condition can be addressed because the emphasis here is focusing on the wholeness of your unique life: from genetics, family dynamics, environment, psychology, physiology, and anatomy. Two people can experience the same disease very differently–this is why one-size-fits-all approaches have their limitations. We have a passion for treating patients who are motivated to engage with us in a cooperative therapeutic relationship towards healing.  

If you have questions about your particular condition, you can schedule a complimentary discovery call to learn more about our services.
 

We partner with Fullscript to offer professional-grade supplements made available by mail order.  Please contact your health care provider with questions about supplements.

Frequently Asked Questions

Doctors of Naturopathic Medicine (NDs) are trained as primary care providers who address the underlying cause of disease through individualized and natural therapies. Naturopathic doctors are unique in their ability to bridge both conventional and holistic medicine perspectives, allowing them to utilize the best of both worlds safely and effectively. The goal of a naturopathic doctor is to employ the safest and most effective therapies that support and promote the body’s natural healing process, helping patients to reach their health potential. As professional leaders and pioneers in science-based natural medicine, naturopathic doctors advocate for the development of professional standards, accountability, and regulation of all forms of medicine in all jurisdictions to maintain public safety and freedom of choice in healthcare. Further, they support broad inclusion, collaboration, and equal access in the healthcare system at all levels.
 
Whole Systems Healthcare Boulder Clinic is a non-profit, direct care holistic medicine practice. We develop results-driven, individualized treatment plans for your healthcare needs and goals. We offer naturopathic medicine, Chinese medicine including acupuncture, and bodywork to address your acute and chronic health concerns.
 
We focus on treating the entire person and not managing symptoms. Each person will receive a plan based on who they are, not what diagnosis they may carry. The story you hold and the symptoms you experience guide us to what needs to be done to move towards balance and wellness. We have witnessed the innate ability of our bodies to heal given the right conditions.
 

Primarily, a medical doctor (MD) is trained through a clinical orientation toward saving lives and managing symptoms–focusing on the use of pharmaceutical medications and surgery as methods of treatment. This medical approach is best used for managing severe infectious diseases, trauma, symptom palliation, and necessary surgical procedures.

A naturopathic doctor (ND) is trained as a holistic healthcare provider with a focus on restoring health. Therefore, NDs are trained in an array of modalities that may be helpful for their patients in their pursuit of health and wellness, such as botanical medicine, nutrition, counseling, homeopathy, physical medicine, and lifestyle medicine. NDs focus on treating the person rather than their disease. 

No. Naturopathic doctors are trained extensively in the use of pharmaceuticals, and in some states have equal prescribing rights to MDs. Pharmaceuticals play a significant role in saving lives and managing severe symptoms, including chronic symptoms that impair activities of daily living. However, NDs are trained to take a conservative approach to the use of pharmaceuticals, and, depending on the patient’s needs and goals, try to utilize other treatment options first. Our intention is to support health and healing by using the least invasive intervention possible.
 

Direct care medicine creates a relationship between a patient and a healthcare provider in which the patient pays a monthly membership fee for services. This is opposed to a fee-for-service model in which insurance codes determine the level of reimbursement, thereby creating a transaction instead of a relationship. Direct care resolves the issue of motivation that is part of fee-for-service, also referred to as provider-driven demand. The practitioner is not paid by the code, so there is no incentive to give a treatment that will pay more. For the patient, since they are paying regardless of whether they seek care or not, there is every incentive to come in early with any illness, thus saving themselves undue suffering and making it easier to provide less intensive and invasive care.

In exchange for the monthly fee, patients have more flexible scheduling options and receive reduced costs for services.

We spend about 30-120 minutes with patients depending upon the visit and the patient’s needs.

No, our Boulder Clinic does not currently accept health insurance.

We can provide a form, known as a superbill, for you to submit to your insurance company. You may be able to receive reimbursement from your insurance providers for our services. You may also use a Health Savings Account (HSA) or a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to pay for visits, labs, and medicinary items.
