Dr. Jacqui Slavin
Dr. Grace is dedicated to tailoring each appointment to your unique goals & individual circumstances.

Individualized,

Compassionate Care

Unique Care

We care about you and your unique situation.
If you are seeking a doctor who spends a significant amout of time with you to gain a complete understanding of your personal health, family history, challenges and goals, and who takes the time to answer all your questions, then our comprehensive, individualized care is what you have been looking for.
Spending time in the beginning to understand your unique situation saves time, frustration and money down the line.

Root Cause

We treat people – not symptoms.
And, we’ve been there too!
We know it can feel overwhelming to make sense of all the information available online and from many “experts”.
Your unique tapestry of metabolic, genetic and lifestyle factors influence where you are today.
We strive to identify the root cause of your health concerns, that address all areas of concern, and design a comprehensive healing approach specific to you and your goals.

Prevention & Restoration

Looking to optimize your aging?
With careful assessment and understanding of your body’s unique biochemistry & genetics, we can identify dysfunction before it manifests as disease. Many chronic conditions, or what are comonly termed “diseases of old age” usually take 10-20 years to develop.
If you would like a proactive approach to identify early warning signs and reduce progression, we can work together to improve your body’s  functioning, and help to lay the foundation for healthy aging.

A New Wellness Paradigm

"Make Sense of the Research" ~ "Find a Better Way"

Dr. Slavin was horrified, when she learned during graduate school that it often takes 15-20 years for new research to make it into a traditional doctor’s office, and provide updated solutions for patients.

Not only is medical care frequently dictated by insurance companies’ algorithms and antiquated data, much of the first 80+ years of medical research specifically did not include women due to their cycles, and because of this many of the “guidelines” in practice today do not apply well to women, especially where it relates to cholesterol and heart health.  Limitations from the early 2000’s Women’s Health Initiative findings created more than two decades of misinformation and a dearth of accurate information and care for women of peri- and post-menopausal age.

Understanding how to apply up-to-date findings to your specific situation and health concerns takes years of understanding.  Specialty lab testing can be helpful, but more importantly is an analysis of your specific familial and medical history, and the ability to identify patterns and apply appropriate recommendations.

that are both comprehensive and simple enough to implement. Working alongside Dr. Slavin supports you to “make sense of the research” and “find a better way”.

Testimonials

“Dr. Grace is unlike any doctor I’ve seen before.  She persistently asks “why” to get to the root of all the problems.
She functions like a detective discovering what is truly going on with your unique situation. Dr. Grace truly listens, and asks lots of questions to understand your history and health issues on a different level. She worked with me to identify the most effective treatments and solutions. She takes the time to explain each thing individually in a way that makes sense to you. She believes in addressing the simple and fundamental things first, rather than trying to sell you fancy and expensive things. She holds her patients to a high standard and is truly amazing to work with, and undoubtedly can assist anyone in solving their issues and reaching their health goals.”
~ Vicky L. – Pagosa Springs, Colorado
“Your knowledge is so broad! You were able to look at over 15 years of labs and help me make sense of all the varying numbers from my heart scans, to my food sensitivity panels, to my bloodwork, to my genetics, and help me put together a practical plan. Your focus on the fundamentals first, rather than trying to sell expensive labs or supplements is greatly appreciated, as we have been through that process with lots of other doctors in the past. We are so grateful for your vast knowledge and willingness to work through all of these results. We feel reassured and hopeful! Thank you so much.”
~ L&D F. – Pagosa Springs, Colorado
Dr. Grace patiently reviewed every facet of my health plan. She coordinated with my out-of-state practitioners for my continued care.  She is kind and gentle when supporting and reminding me how to take care of my body appropriately, and why advice I find online might not apply well to my situation.  She is willing to go the extra mile to help you get the individualized care you need. She reviewed every supplement I am taking, and every supplement from another online practitioner that I am working with and helped me to optimize the supplements specifically for me, even though I did not purchase one supplement from her. I am so grateful to have found her!”  ~ M.L. – Pagosa Springs, Colorado

Dr. Grace

A Trusted Partner on Your Healing Journey

Dr. Grace has been studying natural and functional medicine for over 25 years and practicing in Colorado since 2008.
Over the years Dr. Grace has trained with over thirty international organizations and well-known leaders in the integrative and functional medicine arena. She holds several certifications and memberships with various groups including Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine, Institute for Functional Medicine, International Society for Bioregulatory Medicine, Association for the Advancement of Restorative Medicine, The Kharrazian Institute, Functional Medicine University, The Kalish Institute, and many more.
Many functional practitioners offer “one-size-fits-all programs” and while these can be effective for 40-60% of the general population, most people’s unique biochemistry and medical history require a more individualized approach.

Historical, Current & ‘Gold-Standard’ Research

Over the past two decades, Dr. Grace has evolved her practice by building her knowledge base and incorporating advancements in evaluation, testing options and therapeutic modalities. This holistic approach utilizes a combination of evidence-based therapies and lifestyle modification to address the underlying imbalances and support the body’s innate healing ability.

Bio-Individual and Integrative Approach

Dr. Grace’s approach to Functional Wellness places bio-individuality at the foundation of each client’s health plan. Lifestyle, testing and supplementation recommendations are personalized for each client. We don’t do cookie-cutter programs!
Functional medicine aims to promote and restore the body’s optimal functioning. It is appropriate for chronic conditions that have not fully responded to conventional medical care alone, as well as for those who would like a truly personalized view on health management options.
