Care Philosophy

 

I help people who are struggling with pain, fibromyalgia, fatigue, IBS, thyroid issues, diabetes, hormonal issues, anxiety or depression so that they can have more energy, less pain,  and get back to living their lives once again. 

My name is Dr. Colleen Gagliardi, and my goal as a Naturopathic Physician and acupuncturist is to help you back to feeling like yourself again.  Frequently I find that there are several underlying issues that may be contributing to your health symptoms. By working together to identify these underlying issues and then addressing them with natural medicine and acupuncture, we can start to get you on the road to health again.

Many chronic health symptoms may be due to undetected food sensitivities, nutrient deficiencies or underlying metabolic imbalances.  Once these underlying issues are identified, we then can create a step-by-step treatment plan using a natural medicine approach, incorporating specific diet and nutrients, herbs, supplements, acupuncture, Chinese medicine and mind/body medicine to help you start healing. My goal is to help you get back to feeling like yourself again

Biography

My practice rests on a firm belief that when people come to our clinic that they receive an understanding of the underlying factors that are causing their symptoms. We strive to provide a comprehensive overview of their health, and give a "blue-print" of specific steps they can take using natural medicine to enable them to successfully reach their health goals - and help them feel better. In 2015 I relocated to Kalispell, Montana to join The Montana Center for Wellness and Pain Management, as part of their integrative medicine team. I am excited to be part of the health care team that includes Medical Doctors, Chiropractic, Acupuncture, Massage, Counseling, Physical Therapy and now Naturopathic Medicine in patient centered care. I love the nature in Northwest Montana and feel quite at home here! What brought me to this point: Before I began my Naturopathic medical education -- at age 42! -- I had undergone a metamorphosis in my life and career. Although from childhood I'd had a deeply spiritual connection with nature and an intuitive sense of energy and natural healing, my early adult life became eminently "practical." I worked in office management and bookkeeping. While successful, I found that I really wasn't happy or fulfilled; and it was at that time that I came to the realization that I wanted to formally study medicine. Studying chemistry and physics was totally new ground for me. Yet, I found that I enjoyed my classes in chemistry and physics and then anatomy and physiology. As I was getting ready to apply to medical school, I learned of Naturopathic Medicine. As I researched it, I realized that the tenets of Naturopathic Medicine resonated deeply with me and was the path that I really wanted to pursue. So, at age 42, I packed up all my belongings into a U-Haul truck and drove west across the country to start my journey in becoming a Naturopathic Doctor. Five demanding and satisfying years later, I had learned not only about biochemistry, pharmacology, anatomy and biochemistry, gastroenterology and gynecology, but I had also learned how to effectively use natural therapies such as herbs, hydrotherapy, physical medicine, therapeutic massage, homeopathy and nutrition. I was slowly beginning to assemble a very powerful "toolkit" that combined my rigorous education in science-based natural medicine along with my intuitive awareness and respect for healing, energy and spirituality that I'd had all my life. After graduating with a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University, and passing the national Naturopathic Medicine boards, I began a two year Bastyr-sponsored Naturopathic family practice residency at Yellowstone Naturopathic Clinic in Billings, MT. After my residency was completed, I opened my own clinic in Miles City, MT. In 2008 I moved to Denver to pursue a three year Master's degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine at the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine. During that time, I practiced Naturopathic Medicine in Arvada and later Westminster, CO. Once graduating with my Master's Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine, I then added a third "tool" -- acupuncture -- to my natural medicine therapies. Although it was hard to leave a thriving Naturopathic practice in Westminster CO, the opportunity to work in an integrative setting at the Montana Center was too good to pass up. So, once again, I packed up a U-Haul truck and drove across country (this time north!) to Kalispell, MT. Since being at the Montana Center for Wellness and Pain Managment, I have been warmly welcomed by the practitioners at the Montana Center, the community of Kalispell and the Kalispell Regional Medical Center. And, I find that I enjoy the outdoors "Big Sky Country" immensely as I continue to help people on their healing journeys.

My goal is to help you get back to feeling like yourself again

Dr. Gagliardi says...

I use natural medicine, common sense, along with state-of-the-art lab testing, functional medicine and expert nutritional knowledge to provide you with an understanding and knowledge of what exactly what factors are creating your symptoms and what you can do to help yourself start to feel better.

Dr. Gagliardi says...

Here is a testimonial from a patient who  found help in working with me:

I've been a patient of Dr. Colleen Gagliardi for almost three months. When I met Dr. Gagliardi I had severe digestive problems and acute, debilitating anxiety/panic attacks. I also suffered from muscle pain and insomnia.

Dr. Gagliardi has literally saved my life. She's taught me how to manage my anxiety and digestive problems by alternative medicine and therapy methods: naturopathic vitamin supplements, educating me about nutrition, offering different diet suggestions, acupuncture, and massage.

Dr. Gagliardi sent me for blood work and we discovered I was deficient in important vitamins. She takes the time to get to know the patient and works to help the patient understand how to get better.

I no longer have severe panic attacks, my digestion is 100 % better, I no longer have insomnia, and I have the energy of a teenager. I continue my path with Dr. Gagliardi and highly recommend her."
