We now offer a menu of intravenous nutritional "cocktails" for colds, fatigue, exercise recovery and hangovers. This "drip room" is open to the public and it is not necessary to become a patient first to do this. There are other requirements though that our nursing staff will go over.
The below study found that not only did HCG work but that it worked better than testosteone injections becasue of a lower side effect profile.

Metformin is a drug that is used primarily to lower blood sugar in prediabetes or diabetes. In recent years research continues to show benefits for arresting cancer cell growth as well.
Metformin affects multiple key processes related to cell growth, proliferation, and survival through a number rof pathways.

We do not "take" insurance but this only means we do not bill insurance. Our services are an excellent complement to conventional insurance based care. Most people do not know that much of what we do can be covered by insurance. Our current nationwide health insurance problems only add to the confusion.

EBV causes MS in genetically susceptible individuals by infecting a white blood cell, these infected cell seed the nervous system where they produce pathogenic autoantibodies and promote the survival of autoimmue T cells that would normally be eliminated. Thus, the virus promotes the autoimmune process.
We are participating in an clinical trial using this device. Read more HERE.

Johns Hopkins has an interesting article about how cancer patients benefit from Mistletoe injections.
The National Cancer Institute has written a very balanced informational article on mistletoe. We do not sell it or import it. Patients but it and we help them understand the literature and guide them with using it. We are waiting to participate in a NIH clinical trial on this currently.
A new blood test that measures levels of TMAO (trimethylamine-N-oxide) — a metabolite derived from gut bacteria — can powerfully predict future risk for heart attack and stroke.
Stephen. W. Parcell, ND here. I specialize in cardiovascular medicine at NatureMed, Boulder, CO. My approach is comprehensive. I spends more time learning about patients so that a holistic, patient centered model can be implemented. I work closely with athletes in both the prevention and treatment of many conditions including cardiovascular.
EDTA chelation therapy is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a treatment for lead and heavy metal poisoning. About one million people in the United States are treated with EDTA chelation therapy every year. Chelation therapy is a medical treatment that improves cellular function by removing toxic metals (such as lead and arsenic) and abnormally elevated tissue levels of nutritional minerals (such as cobalt and iron) EDTA is best administered intravenously (through a vein).
The hormonal hypothesis is one of the most important biologically plausible hypotheses in prostate cancer etiology. In addition to hormones, other possible causative factors include; dietary fat, calcium, dairy products and genetic polymorphisms. The purpose of this paper is to provide a background for the understanding of how various hormones may be implicated in this disease. Because of the difficulty in measuring hormones within the prostate itself and the lack of data on how tissue levels of hormones correlate with serum levels much of what we know on the relationship between hormones and prostate cancer is speculative . Epidemiological studies have used serum levels of androgens. Out of 12 prospective studies on the role of serum androgens in prostate cancer only one was able to show that men with higher serum levels of testosterone have a higher risk of prostate cancer .
Iron helps form hemoglobin, the part of the red blood cell that carries oxygen and thus plays an important role in the body’s delivery of oxygen to working muscles. A lack of iron in the body can reduce aerobic capacity and impair endurance performance.
Studies of the nutritional status of athletes in various disciplines have shown females are at greater risk of iron deficiency. This reflects the situation in the general population, with menstruating women being the main risk group for iron deficiency.
We have all heard it so many times, exercise is good for the heart, keeps you slim, and makes you feel good. But I find that people forget just how good exercise is at slowing down aging. Have you ever wondered if your intense exercise program was shortening your life? Could raising your metabolic rate over time lead to accelerated aging? According to the medical literature…apparently not. In fact most of the research indicates that sports such as XC skiing, bicycling and running extend life span. There are over thirteen thousand papers in the medical literature on exercise therapy.
Andropause, somatopause, and other age related hormone changes in men.
By the time men are between the ages of 40 and 55, they can experience a phenomenon similar to menopause, called andropause. Alternative names for Andropause have been suggested including the Male Menopause, Androgen Deficiency in Aging Male (ADAM) and Partial Androgen Deficiency in Aging Male (PADAM)[i].

Study: Different Hormone Therapy Formulations May Pose Different Risks for Heart Attack and Stroke
We at NatureMed, especially Kelly Parcell, ND, in Boulder are known for doing quite a bit of natural hormone replacement. Here is a post from Cedars Sinai demonstating that what we have been saying for years is trure. Natural hormones are safer.

I had to write about this today as I heard about the crisis in Flint, MI again in the news. As a certified expert in chelation I think I know something about lead.The media is not talking about how to mitigate the lead levels IN PEOPLE only the water. This needs to be discussed. A book could be written about the deleterious effects of lead on humans but lets just put it this way...its bad.
Dr. Clark recently attended the International Lyme and Associated Disease (ILADS) annual conference. ILADS strongly supports physicians and other health care professionals dedicated to advancing the standard of care for Lyme and its associated diseases. The theme of the conference was "From Bench to Beside: Translating Research into Clinical Practice". Dr. Clark says,"It was great to hear the latest research from some the the pioneers on lyme disease and its co-infections as well as come back with some clinical pearls that will help me treat it".
