Julie Gomez, CMA

I have had the amazing opportunity  to be trained in the United States Air Force as a medic.  I took that detailed training to be a medical assistant.  I have traveled the world and experienced many amazing  adventures.  I have worked with Plastic Surgeons, Facial Plastic Surgeons, Cosmetic & Laser physicians.

Being able to use those skills to enhance an Integrative Medicine office is a dream come true for me.

“Is Acupuncture right for me?”

AcupunctureThe World Health Organization (WHO) identifies over 40 medical conditions acupuncture effectively treats.

At PPIM, we may recommend Medical Acupuncture as part of your comprehensive treatment plan. Many are familiar with the use of acupuncture to treat issues such as post-operative pain and acute pain from injury and chronic conditions. But the effectiveness of acupuncture is not limited to pain management. The World Health Organization (WHO) of the United Nations identifies over 40 medical conditions acupuncture effectively treats, which includes migraines, allergies, digestive issues, infertility, and neurological conditions.

Acupuncture is believed to encourage the release of endorphins, natural painkillers that can also increase feelings of well-being. Acupressure, in which the same acupoints are stimulated by hand, may be effective in the same way, but usually to a lesser degree.

Medical Acupuncture can have profound positive effects on the human body.

AcupunctureMedical Acupuncture, when performed properly by a trained physician practitioner, can have profound positive effects on the human body. But like all things in nature, the body needs time to heal, especially if the disease is chronic. While seemingly miraculous cures are always a possibility after an acupuncture treatment, please do not expect that to be the norm. Oftentimes one or more follwo-up treatments may be necessary to treat a given medical condition and, as with all of our treatements, acupuncture will be most successful when paired with your efforts to live a healthy lifestyle. Successful healthcare is certainly a collaborative effort between our services and our patients’ decisions.

Accupuncture has few side effects, so it may be worth a try if you’re having tourble controlling pain with more conventional methods.

“I’ve heard of acupuncture, but what is “Medical Acupuncture””?

Medical acupuncture is performed by a specially trained physician with not only extensive understanding and background in traditional western medical principles, but also an understanding of eastern medicine. For nearly 3000 years, Chinese physicians have studied and practiced a very effective type of medicine which uses principals and techniques that our western healthcare system has only recently begun to understand and appreciate.

The use of herbal-abased therapies, the use of hands-on manual techniques, and the use of acupuncture, are well established and proven approaches that have been used successfully for thousands of years. Over the past half-century, this eastern medical model (often called “traditional Chinese Medicine”, or TCM) has been increasingly understood and accepted by western physicians. We are finding many uses for these proven techniques, and we are seeing the many exciting ways they can be applied to greatly enhance our care of our patients.

Dr. Denam has been trained in Medical Acupuncture at the Helms Institute of Medical Acupuncture.

Joseph Helms, MD traveled to France in 1973 to study with eminent European physicians who brought TCM and Chinese acupuncture to Europe. They began to incorporate these eastern medical principals into their framework of western medical understanding. Their studies found that TCM, particularly acupuncture, is not only compatible with  our western healthcare model, but can provide a much greater understanding of our patient’s maladies, and adds another very powerful tool in our medical armamentarium. Dr. Helms has taken the knowledge he gained from his studies in France, and over these past decades has developed a very comprehensive medical model that incorporates the concepts of TCM and acupuncture into our established western model. Many physicians from all over America and the world have come to study Dr. Helms’ approach, and like Dr. Denam, are incorporating his principals into their practices to provide better care for their patients.

At PPIM, Medical Acupuncture is being used with great success to not only relieve pain, but to reestablish normal energy flow (Qi) throughout our body and brain, allowing our patients to have optimal organ physiology and healing capabilities.

See our brief video below for more information about acupuncture.

Doctor of OsteopathyOsteopathic Manipulative Treatment

Through Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment, or OMT, Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine can use their hands to diagnose illness and injury. By realignment, restoration of normal structural mechanics, and other manual treatments, we encourage your body’s natural tendency toward self-healing. DOs have a keen understanding of how the body’s systems are interconnected and how each one affects the others. This is the holistic approach Osteopathic physicians are known for.

Osteopathic MedicineAs part of their education, DOs receive special training in the musculoskeletal system, your body’s interconnected system of nerves, muscles and bones. Using OMT, your DO can effectively treat your muscles and joints to relieve pain, promote healing and increase overall mobility. OMT is often used to treat muscle pain, but it can also help provide relief for patients with asthma, sinus disorders, chest congestion, carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines, and many other ailments. In many cases, OMT can be used to complement, or even replace, drugs or surgery.

By combining the latest advances in medical technology with OMT and other integrative methods, Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine are able to offer their patients the most comprehensive care available in medicine today.

Nutrition Services and Counseling

Many patients suffer from medical conditions that are greatly helped by proper diet practices. Diabetes, hypertension, arthritis and other inflammatory conditions are only a few such examples. Proper and personalized nutrition practices are essential to maintaining wellness, as well as treating and overcoming many injuries and illnesses. Integrative Medicine has a firm foundation in clinical nutrition. Holding a degree in Clinical Nutrion, Dr. Denam has long recognized this dynamic and the importance of good nutrition practices, recommending those that help the patient, and assisting his patients to avoid those that can cause harm. Let us design a diet for you.

Diagnostic Services

While no radiologic imaging, and only limited laboratory services are available on-site, your treatment may require specific blood tests or radiology diagnostics. PPIM has partnered with LabCorp and Quest Diagnostics for laboratory services, and Penrad Imaging and other local imaging centers for radiologic services.

As a fully licensed Colorado physician, Dr. Denam can order and interpret diagnostic studies to aid in the care and treatment of his patients. Many other healthcare providers offering alternative treatments do not have the full medical licensure to legally use such services.

Sound Therapy

During an acupuncture session, or during massage treatment, certain specific sounds or music may be used to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment. While this is an evolving field, Dr. Denam has taken a keen interest in the application of Therapeutic Sound Stimulation. During the treatments, sound therapy may help the patient to self-direct the valuable healing mechanisms of these treatments.

Testimonials

What Our Patients are Saying

Lisa – Shoulder Pain

“Dr. Denam answered all my questions and explained, to the best that he could, exactly what he was doing and why it was effective. I love coming to this office and I recommend them to everyone that I know.”

Amy – Fibromyalgia

“Dr. Denam is very different. He pushes a holistic approach and is more worried about helping me with my pain that he is with getting me in and out the door and shoving a pill bottle at me.

I’m going to keep coming back when things are bad and let them fix me.”

Carla – Post-Covid Complications

“Dr. Denam, I find him to be very compassionate, loving and caring. He is a wonderful, wonderful doctor.

Anyone who has tried traditional medicine…I would say definitely come here and give it a try.”

“I had complete relief with one [acupuncture] application. Dr. Denam actually sits down and takes the time…to explain the process and to put you at ease.

If you’re tired of taking narcotics, tired of the side effects of narcotics…I would recommend coming to Pikes Peak Integrative Health”. Also, “The staff up front are professional.”

Eddie
Pinched Nerve in Neck
Cervical Neuropathy
Neck and Back Pain

With Dr. Denam’s help life is much more pleasant. Great people I would highly recommend. “

Kelly
Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome
Pelvic pain

“After my first treatment [of acupuncture] I was completely blown away. I’ve always been on pain management so coming somewhere where they use acupuncture…it has done more for me than pain management has done in over a decade. I’m definitely down at least 70% on pain medications.”
