"Unlike any other health care professional
I have seen” –KM

 

Dr. Grace Calihan is a registered naturopathic doctor and licensed acupuncturist now practicing at Steamboat Naturopathic.

 

My Background

Since childhood I have had an interest in science and medicine.  While I was pursuing a more conventional medical degree I discovered naturopathic medicine.  I immediately fell in love with this branch of medicine because the focus is on patient health, not disease.  Additionally, naturopathic medicine does not rely solely on a surgical or pharmaceutical approach; it integrates countless aspects of a patient’s life into the healing process.  The way we eat, move, live, and breathe all determine our vitality, and so much of that vitality is within our immediate control.  It is my passion and calling to help guide patients to the optimal, vital health that is our birthright.

 

My Education

I studied pre-medicine at Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts where I earned my bachelor's degree. I received my Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine and Masters of Science in acupuncture at Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington. Bastyr University is a four-year, fully accredited institution that trains primary care physicians.  After passing rigorous national examinations, I am licensed to practice medicine in Colorado.

 

My Approach

I am trained as a general practice physician, and I enjoy working with all patients who have an interest in improving their health.  I also have a special interest in natural fertility, hormone optimization, and gastrointestinal health.  I have experience coordinating care with other doctors and have the utmost respect for conventionally trained medical doctors.  I strongly believe in the combined importance of conventional care and natural medicine, as patients benefit the most from great relationships among their health care providers.  My goal for each patient is to achieve whole-body health by focusing on the root cause of various health concerns.  My treatment approach combines herbal medicine, lifestyle changes, food as medicine, homeopathic remedies, and nutraceuticals (vitamins and supplements).

 

As a licensed acupuncturist I am also able to diagnose and treat patients from a traditional Chinese perspective.  Integrating this skill set with Western medicine helps to expose the underlying cause of the symptoms.  Additionally, using acupuncture techniques to treat the cause can have truly transformative results.
