Welcome to the L.I.F.E. Medicine Institute–A new clinic that combines Lifestyle, Integrative,Functional and Evolutionary Medicine. We pledge to return HEALTH and CARE to your medical clinic experience, along with compassion and a strong community. Join Us! My mission is to provide compassionate and better medical care to residents of Colorado. We optimize your health and healing with a community of your peers in an environment where we all work together toward a better LIFE. My most valuable education comes from my two children. I love being an integrally involved father. My kids teach me bottomless love, balance, patience, and compassion, remind me what matters most, and encourage me to continually grow and evolve into the best man, father, and citizen possible. Raised in Colorado, matured in Northern California, and schooled at the University of California Davis (and Melbourne University, Australia), Dartmouth Medical School, and the University of Colorado Family Medicine Residency, I enjoy sunshine, travel, and experiencing new people and cultures. I love to laugh and cherish the moments that BIG laughter accompanies life and requires wiping tears from my eyes. I move my body often on a yoga mat, mountain bike, ski hill, or dance floor. Every piece of ground is an opportunity to dance! I love to listen to music, and will wear a costume any chance I get. An open-minded, passionate, and creative physician, I believe in a multifaceted approach to your well-being and health — physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental. I will work with you to prevent and reverse disease, improve undesirable symptoms, and decrease your medication use. Together we will develop better awareness about your health choices, while incorporating a more positive attitude and approach to life. My Medical training and career highlights include: Volunteering on Patch Adams's land in West Virginia during medical school Coordinating a clinical trial, published in Diabetes Care, that compared a vegan diet and an American Diabetes Association diet.

JasterHealth.com I look for opportunities to connect to life every day–rescuing a wandering dog, talking to cashiers, relating to children, building community, and reaching out when someone is struggling. Increased isolation in our society is a root cause of our declining collective health, in my opinion. In addition to our increasing disconnection from nature. My passion to change the landscape of health and medicine is palpable, and I welcome kindred spirits on this creative journey. JOIN ME or SCHEDULE YOUR APPOINTMENT NOW.
