Imaginative Functional Medicine Consults

Clinical consults utilize integrative, functional, regenerative & preventive medicine techniques to support whole health and well-being. By focusing on finding and fixing the root cause of illness to encourage longevity and wellness ensuring quality of life, not just quantity. Individual visits are available with Dr. Marchionda via phone, e-visit and house calls. Dr. Marchionda does not take the place of your primary care provider, she works in collaboration with them to help you achieve your best possible health.

Acudetox Ear Acupuncture

Acudetox has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety, improve pain and headaches, lessen depression and insomnia, and alleviate the craving for substances. Acudetox is well tolerated and very relaxing for most individuals.

Acudetox therapy involves gently placing five small sterilized disposable stainless steel needles in specific sites in each ear and leaving them in while clients sit quietly for 30 to 45 minutes. It is often accompanied by guided imagery, meditation, or simply relaxing music.

Group sessions are also available!

Dr. Marchionda is a trained National Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist. 

Biohacking & Nutrigenomics

"The study of how food affects a person’s genes and how a person’s genes affect the way the body responds to food. Nutrigenomics is used to learn more about how genes and diet together may affect a person’s health and risk of developing diseases, such as cancer. It may also help find new ways to prevent and treat disease" (from the National Institute if Health).

In practice nutrigenomics is using nutrition and appropriate dietary supplementation to affect our gene expression. Essentially taking "you are what you eat" into the next century, 

We do this via nutrition support, cutting edge dietary supplementation and utilizing culinary medicine education and workshops. "Culinary medicine is a new evidence-based field in medicine that blends the art of food and cooking with the science of medicine" (from the National Institute if Health). We are fortunate at MIMI to have not only a physician who is passionate about healthy food, but also a nutritionist and a chef on staff to support our programing for MIMI's Kitchen.


One of the specific ways in which we do this is with fasting and fasting mimicking. Research is exploding on the benefits of fasting and  mimicking fasting. One of the best researched ways to do a prolonged fast is with the Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD). This is a 5 day prepackaged kit that has shown multiple clinical benefits - including boosting production of your own stem cells and reducing inflammation. If a 5 day fast isn't your thing, or if it is not indicated for your given situation, we can also help with intermittent fasting, restricted time eating and many other nutritional and dietary regimens. 

Katie Ryan RD our Nutritionist is an expert at tailoring dietary regimens to your individual nutritional needs. Combine Katie's experience with Chef Jill's kitchen skills an you have the dynamic duo of nutrients and flavors!

Brain Health & Neurocognitive Support

At MIMI we believe cognitive decline is preventable and reversible, peripheral neuropathy can improve and even resolve, and other brain and nerve issues can be helped and supported. Science and research backs up our holistic approach to improve and maintain your brain and nervous system health. What good is a longer life if it is plagued with pain or if you can't remember or enjoy it? 

Our brain rejuvenation program is for anyone who is concerned about cognitive decline, memory issues, dementia, or any other neuro-cognitive issue. It is a whole person approach that includes nutrition recommendations and support, peptide therapy, biologic therapy and much more. If you are interested in learning more about our Brain Rejuvenation Program gives a call or email and we will be happy to tell you more and send you more information.

Dr. Marchionda has significantly improved her own peripheral neuropathy  (from chemotherapy) and brain health with this same holistic approach and she is paasionate about helping others do the same.

Gut Health

Our digestive system is the key to more than 70% of our immune function and contributes to our brain health in addition to its role in digestion and nutrition. Because of this, a healthy gut is needed to help every other part of your body and mind function appropriately. We are here to assist you in achieving optimal gut health through a variety of ways, depending on your needs. As your grandmother always said, "you are what you eat."

Improving your gut function can start with testing for food allergies, stool analysis or other investigations. Sometimes your symptoms and previous labs  already lead us to the next step. We can help food allergies and other conditions with Low Dose Allergy & Immunotherapy, heal your gut lining and cells, restore your microbiome and improve nutrition and diet with you as part of your health care team. All while focusing on therapies that are naturally based and non-pharmacologic.

Hormone & Sexual Health Optimization 

Hormone optimization is achieved by balancing our various hormomes. These include our sex hormones and other hormones, such as thyroid and adrenal formones. 

Sex hormones balancing is done with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement therapy (BHRT), for both men and women.   Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) has been around for decades. As we age our hormone balance changes significantly. Restoring a healthy balance of hormones promotes healthy aging. 

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a well studied area of medicine. Many of us have heard conflicting information about HRT for many years.  At MIMI we only use bioidentical hormones.  “Bioidentical hormones are chemical substances that are identical in molecular structure to human hormones.” (Whelan, Pharmacy Practice, 2011). 

We use well vetted, state-of-the-art compounding pharmacies for our BHRT, with higher standards of quality than that required by drug companies.  The use of compounding pharmacies allows us to individualize BHRT specifically for each patient.

We also offer other therapies for sexual health rejuvenation. For men this includes the priapus-shot and for women this includes the o-shot and the VFit+ - all of which are hormone free options.

Sexual Health Optimization 

For various reason our sexual health can be impacted and contribute to loss of quality of life. There are several options beyond, or instead of, hormone therapies that can help address these issues for both men and women. We would be happy to consult with you about your options and work with you to improve this integral part of your health and quality of life.

Regenerative Medicine 

Biologic Allograft therapy is the use of biologic tissues, cells, or signaling molecules to treat or prevent a disease or condition. Various sources of biologic allografts are available for use in regenerative medicine. The two most common sources of products are 1. obtaining them from your own body, and 2. obtaining them from amniotic and/or umbilical cord tissue and/or fluids. Each method has its own risks and benefits. At MIMI we help you decide if a biologic product might work best for your given situation and provide the best product and support. 

These therapies are being used for an increasing number of health conditions and research supporting it continues to grow. There is mounting evidence for its use with orthopedic, arthritic, autoimmune and neurocognitive issues. 

If you are considering biologic allograft therapy please contact us for an individual consult. Even if you do not end up deciding to move forward with therapy, we welcome the opportunity to help you decide. Dr Marchionda is the only Diplomat of the American Association of Stem Cell Physicians on the Western Slope of Colorado.

Peptide therapy uses peptides, short pieces of proteins or chains of amino acids, to facilitate healing and tissue rejuvenation. Over 7,000 naturally-occurring peptides have been identified in our bodies. They typically act as messengers that talk to your cells and other molecules directing them in what to do.

Peptide therapy is highly specific, well-tolerated and safe.  There are now well over 70 US FDA-approved peptide medications, with many more being evaluated in clinical trials, and hundreds more in pre-clinical development.  In the past, most peptide therapies were administered via injection, but they can also come as topical creams, nasal sprays, and many or are now available as oral tablets/capsules. 

Peptide therapy can be used alone or combination with other therapies to effect a synergistic benefit.
