Dr. James Gilchrist
Originally from Parker, Dr. Gilchrist left Colorado in 1998 to attend college in Utah. He interrupted his studies to serve a mission in Argentina, and among the lessons he learned there was that making healthy food choices and getting regular exercise were powerful tools for health and well-being.
Upon returning home, Dr. Gilchrist decided he would learn all he could about natural health so he could teach these tools to his future patients. World events took Dr. Gilchrist overseas for a few more years, but he eventually found the path to realize his dream at Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington. There Dr. Gilchrist earned his Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine, and his Master's in Chinese Medicine.
Dr. Gilchrist completed his studies with an internship to China where he saw the full gamut of Chinese Medicine, including acupuncture, massage, herbal medicine and Tai Chi employed to improve quality of life.
