Conversation about Boulder Center For Integral Naturopathic Medicine

Reading time: 2.5 min

Did you know that at the turn of the the twentieth century, Boulder, Colorado was an internationally recognised destination for Natural Healing? 

Dr. J.H. Kellogg—of Kellogg’s cereal—established the Boulder-Colorado Sanitarium, in 1895. The sister to the renowned Battle Creek, Michigan Sanitarium. At the time, this state of the art facility, at the base of Mount Sanitas, served to heal patients from around the globe. At the height of holistic healing in the previous century, the Boulder-Colorado Sanitarium set a precedent of health and wellness in the city of Boulder. Health remains a clear and unwavering priority for Boulderites. 

The vision of Boulder Center for Integral Naturopathic Medicine (BCINM), is to rebuild Kellogg’s historical in-patient facility, integrating modern technologies to offer the community of Boulder an Integral Naturopathic Medical Center. BCINM will be the first of its kind in America since the 1940’s, when allopathic medicine began us down the rabbit hole which has brought us to the frustrating and limited medical system many of us battle through, and with today. 

BCINM radiates Health and the joy of living. It is a center for healing, revitalization, and enjoyment. 

The grand vision of the project includes a 100-bed inpatient facility offering the finest diagnostics, therapeutics, education and research informed by Naturopathic Principles.

BCINM offers both community and individualized education in four major areas of living;

Eating, Movement, Thinking and Relationships.

Each area will have its own architectural structure, i.e. a restaurant, gymnasium, auditorium, classrooms etc.


We are all living with the limitations of allopathic medicine and medicine for profit. BCINM is a solution based medical model that integrates the best from all medical disciplines. Boulder is already a Mecca for Natural Healing in America. We avidly embrace and live the principles and practices of Naturopathic Medicine. BCINM is the natural evolutionary emergence of this innate Self-Healing power on the level of community.

We are a sovereign movement to reclaim our Self-Healing Power. Our funding, organization, leadership, etc. all are determined by we the people. Naturopathic medicine is a sustainable model of community Health Care because it addresses the root causes of illness – physical, mental, social, emotional.  We include but are not limited to symptom management.
