Fully Alive Mission:
To establish a new standard for state-of-the art 21st Century Healthcare.
To serve our community as healers and teachers, through facilitating the self-healing process of our patients and students, and to demonstrate exceptional self-care in our personal lives.
Fully Alive Medicine is a holistic family practice serving Boulder County, Denver, and the entire Colorado community. Based in Boulder, our practice is focused on treating and preventing chronic dis-ease and teaching optimal self-care. Our primary care practitioners – Drs. Ivker and Nelson collectively have over 70 years of clinical experience in the Boulder/Denver area. They are complemented by a local network of gifted holistic healers and teachers.
The Fully Alive approach is unique in a variety of ways. Our Fully Alive family consists of a group of dedicated practitioners and teachers who have chosen to work together, harnessing our collective energy to facilitate consistently successful treatment outcomes for those we serve.
We are one of the only medical practices in the U.S. collecting outcomes data from every patient who chooses to commit to our comprehensive and individualized 3-month treatment program. We utilize our outcomes-based reporting to track the progress of your treatment program. Obtaining the result you want is our primary goal. This ongoing feedback provides our patients and students with the highest standard of quality healthcare, while also helping our staff to improve treatment outcomes. Our most successful results have come from working with people suffering with the diseases and chronic conditions listed on the Home Page.
The Fully Alive team combines the best of modern medicine along with safe and effective complementary therapies and educational programs to help you create an empowering self-care treatment program.
The Fully Alive Medical Center currently operating out of two Boulder offices, represents the initial step in the creation of the Fully Alive Healing Center. This treatment, health education, and retreat facility is expected to open in Boulder by early 2014. Staffed by a team of practitioners who have attained a level of mastery in their unique healing art, it will house treatment and consultation rooms, classrooms, and retreat facilities including dining and sleeping rooms. The Fully Alive Healing Center will help us integrate the profound changes currently transforming our lives and our planet, and become effective caretakers of ourselves and the new Earth.
What Does it Mean to be Fully Alive?
Fully alive is being fully conscious, a heightened state of self awarenesss, and the sense of feeling whole, healed, and healthy physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and socially. It is the unlimited and unimpeded free flow of life force energy (chi, ki, pranna, chai, Tao) through your body, mind, emotions, and soul. This state of optimal well-being results from your committed effort to rejuvenating your body, inspiring your mind, opening your heart, and soothing your soul. It defines your new reality and manifests as the life of your dreams. This energy of aliveness is infused by a sense of knowing that unconditional love is life’s most powerful healer, and the perceived loss of love, our greatest health risk. In short, you feel full…of aliveness!
Fully Alive Medicine, available to anyone choosing to practice it, serves as a guide to your own unique state of being fully alive. We’ll help you create a life that you find meaningful, inspiring, enlivening, fulfilling, and fun. Our Fully Alive practice can guide you in this transformative process, as we help you to initially overcome the challenge of a chronic illness. As you’ve already discovered, it’s tough to enjoy life when you’re living with chronic pain, dysfunction, or disability.
Exceptional self-care is the art and science of practicing loving and nurturing yourself back to optimal health, by making lifestyle and therapy choices that naturally restore optimal function.
The Fully Alive team is committed to individually practicing exceptional self-care in our own lives. Beyond being a clinical team, we are a family of friends and colleagues based on love, service, laughter, and the experience of being fully alive!
Together, we are a heart-centered community, providing services and educational programs that help you and your family enjoy being fully alive!
