We are a functional medicine practice under the direction of Drs Terri Fox and Amy Reidhead. Together, we have been practicing integrative medicine in Boulder, Colorado for over 20 years. Our vision is to personally meet all the functional and integrative medical needs of our patients through our holistic approach. A core part of our expertise is functional medicine which works on getting to the root cause instead of just treating symptoms.
Our physicians have undergone extensive education through the prestigious Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM) and the Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine (AIHM). At Boulder Holistic, our providers spend time listening to our patients’ histories and track the timeline of their illnesses, treating the complex interactions between genetics, environment and lifestyle that contribute to the development of chronic illnesses.
Dearest Friends of Boulder Holistic,
In light of recent events and recommendations, we have decided to close our doors to the public at Boulder Holistic, Functional Medicine PC. However, we are doing our best to adapt in-office so that we can continue taking care of your healthcare needs.
All consults have been switched to phone consults as of Monday, March 16. Because we cannot ensure social distancing compliance, we will not be doing IV’s or blood draws onsite. We will be happy to email you your lab requisition for your next blood draw. Below is a list of places to get your blood drawn.
Our first priority is the health and wellbeing of the Boulder Holistic team, our patients and our community. As long as we can ensure the health of our staff, we will all be in the office, answering emails, phone calls and doing phone consults with patients. We have a wonderful system in place to leave your supplements and test kits in front of our office for you to pick up or we would be happy to ship them to you. Our online pharmacy, Fullscript is also an option for obtaining many supplements.
Our focus now, is to continue to support your ongoing treatment plans as well as help you stay healthy!
Please note: we are selling out of immune boosters, antivirals and anti-inflammatories as soon as they come in the door. Please let us know if you would like to order or pre-order now. We will continue to order what we can, while we can.

Nothing like this has ever happened before, there’s no medical/historical precedence from which to glean insight. The infinite, unlimited access we have to all types of information, helpful or not, is unique to any global health crisis we have seen before.
In this time of uncertainty and upheaval, let’s try to support, love and take care of each other. There’s an opportunity here to come out of this with more care, understanding and compassion for our fellow humans. There’s an opportunity to bond more deeply with our family.
We are here to help in any way we can.

Defining Functional & Integrative Medicine
ACUPUNCTURE & CHIROPRACTIC CRANIAL SACRAL THERAPY
The body is a vessel that holds the memory of physical, mental, emotional and illness trauma. Hands-on medicine is a powerful tool that can be used on the road to healing. Dr. Amy is able to help with many common problems, including back pain, neck pain, shoulder, wrist and elbow pain, knee hip and ankle pain, and migraine headaches, among other issues.
Chiropractic adjustments and deep tissue manipulations are applied to the spine and joints using direct or indirect manipulations, allowing for better movement and pain relief. Cranial sacral therapy is a healing modality that is capable of releasing restrictions and pain in the body using gentle touch applied to the joints of the body and spine and cranium. Cranial Sacral therapy is especially powerful in the very young and old as well as being an effective tool when treating chronic illnesses.
Acupuncture is an ancient medicine that uses tiny needles to access the body’s energy pathways, called meridians. There have been extensive studies conducted on acupuncture as a method for treating conditions like arthritis, back and neck pain and headaches. Acupuncture is a very safe and powerful treatment modality when performed by a trained practitioner.
In a disease-centered medical model, many have had the experience of being examined by their doctor, undergoing diagnostic tests and procedures, only to be told that everything is “normal”. They are often left feeling helpless, hopeless and unwell.
With a patient-centered focus, our providers strive to use the latest cutting edge lab testing to differentiate the root cause of your illness and better understand the triggers that are preventing you from living your best life.
In addition to utilizing traditional lab testing through Quest Diagnostics and LabCorp, our practice offers specialty testing from Genova Diagnostics, Great Plains Laboratories, IGeneX, Real Time Labs, MicrobiologyDX, Doctors Data, DiagnosTechs, SpectraCell Laboratories, and Mycometrics among others.
Dr. Fox is wonderful! She listened to my concerns and pursued a very thorough work up in order to determine the causes of my medical concerns. She bases her plan on scientific data, and did not blame my symptoms solely on working too much or being too stressed out. We all work too much and are far too stressed out. I had never had another doctor actually take the time to perform lab work and create a long term plan for optimal health. I am feeling amazing now thanks to Dr. Fox. I cannot offer enough gratitude and thanks to her for all she has done for me.
Amy Reidhead is my go-to miracle worker. She is an exceptionally skilled practitioner of functional medicine, acupuncture and chiropractic medicine. During my first visit, Dr. Reidhead totally alleviated my chronic sciatica. It was amazing. On subsequent visits, she has helped with bursitis in my hip, a torn gluteus minimus, and lower back pain. She’s literally kept me going. Dr. Reidhead listens and has the training and multiple modalities to apply just the right treatment. I highly recommend her for your consideration.
After having a bad experience with a traditional MD, I made the decision that I wanted a family doctor who treated their patients from a Holistic approach. That’s what you get with Dr. Fox. After a very thorough initial visit, she mapped out a treatment plan for me that actually works. I’m seeing great results because of her, and it’s all been Holistic and natural.
Dr. Fox has an awesome personality. Always friendly and upbeat and very genuine. I’ve never felt intimidated or afraid to ask questions as I did with my previous doctor. She is great with kids too. My son absolutely loves her and looks forward to our visits as well. I can’t say enough great things about her. I should also mention the front end staff is also very friendly and helpful. They remember you by first name and make you feel welcome. They will also mail out supplements to you if you are unable to pick them up in person. I highly recommend Dr. Fox and her staff.
