THE INTEGRATED HEALTH SYSTEMS DIFFERENCE
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
We are not your typical healthcare clinic. Instead, we specialize in integrating aspects of Functional Medicine and Neurology.
We can also take the physical medicine of Chiropractic care and couple it with the most cutting-edge knowledge in Functional Medicine and Neurology.
It is the integration of these disciplines is the KEY to what makes us very different. In fact looking at these three areas of a patient’s health is something that very few clinics around the world do!
We’re committed to looking at the causes, not just symptoms. And we think that personal attention plus thorough diagnosis can lead to the most effective customized plan possible.
So please allow us to kindly, but firmly say… “If you’re looking for a quick fix or a superficial diagnosis, please look elsewhere.”
Integrated Health System doesn’t rely on the medical opinions of others to guide treatment.
Instead, we start from the beginning, working with patients to get a good picture of their past, present, and future health before embarking on the road to lasting well-being.
Essentially, we bring together ALL aspects of a person’s health to determine the best way to get results in the shortest amount of time.
We truly are a category of one in that we are one of the very rare places in the world that actually looks at all aspects of health. We provide evidenced based results you can measure.

3 MAIN reasons Integrated Health Systems is different:
#1. We focus on the brain-body connection
It’s simple science really—the brain controls our body, and our body provides feedback to the brain.When this relationship breaks down, so can your health. We work with patients to identify and address these discrepancies. So, when you have an issue, condition or health problem… we work to locate the breakdown of the brain-body connection.
If you only look at one area of a person’s health—rather than the way the brain and body are fully connected—it’s very difficult to fully comprehend the degree of dysfunction within the person. Therefore it results in a slowing of or a lack of progress for the patient.
#2. We specialize in the integration of Functional Medicine and Chiropractic Neurology
Because of this specialty, we are able to offer our patients vast, cutting-edge knowledge in the area of the brain-body connection. This fact alone makes us different from other practitioners out there you can choose to work with.
A traditional medical practitioner is trained to find gross problems such as a disease process damage. As chiropractic neurologists and functional medicine practioners, we take a functional approach, looking beyond external symptoms to find core issues.
#3. We give a very comprehensive physical, neurological, and orthopedic exam to all of our patients
There are very few doctors that look at the function of the whole body and brain as it relates to:
- Immune Function
- Endocrine Function
- Nervous System Function
- Structure and Physiology
And then take what they’ve found and develop an innovative plan of wellness that involves the patient in restoring proper function of their body. We have been trained to evaluate the human function—in a VERY comprehensive way—through the integration of Functional Neurology, Functional Medicine and Immunology as well as blood analysis and immune panels.
We use neurological orthopedic tests to check your muscle tone, thought patterns, reflexes, eye movements, senses, blood pressure, even oxygen intake.
Our functional diagnostic testing allows us to consider all symptoms…from major health crises to everyday issues like balance problems, mood, sleep, or fatigue. Once we’ve identified your core issues, we can work with them at your core—not with life long medication or complicated, expensive surgeries—which allows your body to begin healing itself.
We offer services that most others cannot do or simply do not offer patients…one of which being Neurological Rehabilitation.
Neurological Rehabilitation is a key area that makes Integrated Health Systems different from others and makes us one of the most cutting-edge and comprehensive clinics in Denver and Colorado! Many other clinics, doctors and practitioners CANNOT do this service or simply do not offer it to patients because they don’t want to.
We perform a lot of neurological rehabilitation for people with neurological conditions such as Strokes, Stroke Rehab, Vertigo, Seizures and childhood disorders like Dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, Autism, Asperger’s and more.
Our brain rehabilitation is done by improving brain function through exercises conducted with our team in office. When you become a patient in our practice, we will actually set up a rehab schedule with you for brain based rehab and therapy.
I have much better and consistent energy now. My head is much clearer and sharper. I like that IHS works to treat the root causes rather than symptoms. IHS started with a comprehensive blood test program, then we worked to support my immune system, remove possible antigens and toxins from my diet and support my physiological systems that were not functioning optimally.
The IHS therapies also have been great to work with, giving me brain-based exercises to restore communication between the brain and thyroid.
A few things to consider, before working with ANY healthcare practitioner…
People need to beware of practitioners that claim the “one thing” they do in their practice cures everyone… kind of a “one size fits all approach.” Not all problems are physically based in nature and therefore may need a customized approach such as brain-based treatment to restore their function! There is rarely, if ever, a “one size fits all.” Be aware when you are consistently going back for the same problem and the doctor is doing the same thing expecting different results. Sometimes patients will do too much to get better and get frustrated with the lack of results.
Be careful of practitioners who just look at symptoms. Remember that working with causes, not symptoms—as we do in our practice—is the best and quickest way to recover and/or maintain optimum health and wellness. Most traditional medical practitioners are trained to find gross problems such as disease processes. As Chiropractic Neurologists and Functional Medical Practitioners, we take a functional approach, looking beyond external symptoms to find core issues… and this is the most effective means of diagnosis!
Make sure the practitioner that you’re considering is able to incorporate the brain-body connection and how it affects your health. If you only look at one area of a person’s health—rather than the way the brain and body are fully connected—it’s very difficult to fully comprehend the degree of dysfunction within the person. Therefore it results in a slowing of or a lack of progress for the patient.
We are more successful in diagnosing and with difficult cases because…
Most doctors perform a short evaluation of the patient and the area of complaint.
Most doctors spend no more than 5-10 minutes with a patient before making a diagnosis and treatment recommendation. Integrated Health System is different. It takes roughly 2 to 2.5 hours (start to finish) for our new patient exam (see becoming a patient for complete details). Once you’re a patient, your visits will last anywhere from 15 minutes to 1 hour depending on your treatment plan and issues we are working on solving.
We look at functional blood chemistry analysis.
Most doctors look at the laboratory ranges and prescribe prescriptions base on that range. Different labs have different ranges, so the results can and do vary greatly. This causes the patient to fall outside the ranges they were once within. This makes a once normal condition now seem abnormal… just by changing some numbers. We look at your blood results in such a way to discover patterns of dysfunction and work with them before they become a serious problem.
We believe and practice sound nutritional protocols.
Nutritional products prescribed in office are high quality professional agents that are: developed based on current research on how they affect physiology. They are also dosed at a therapeutic range to increase the function in the body. Nutritional products in the box stores may be questionable in regards to quality and manufacturing and the patient may not understand how the nutritional products should affect their bodies. Patients may not understand how to use nutrition and diet to change their current condition. They need someone who can find the underlying nutritional needs rather than “self-treating” based on what they hear in the media. Specific conditions require specific solutions.
We integrate different types of laboratory testing such as salivary, blood, and stool testing in our treatment plans.
Our office understands how to integrate comprehensive blood, stool and salivary testing (which is the testing of hormones, cortisol, etc.) with a person’s healthcare to give measuring tools on progress that the person has made.
We look at immune panels to understand many chronic diseases.
We understand the effects of the immune system and the rest of the body. Such conditions may appear as autoimmune disorders (attacking different aspects of a person’s health) or an immune shift or imbalance within the immune system itself. We also work with other healthcare providers to meet the goals of the patient when necessary.
