About Tree of Life Wellness Center

Welcome to the Tree of Life Wellness Center! I’m Todd Nelson, D.Sc., Naturopath. My team and I have had the privilege of providing thousands of individuals and families the very best holistic health care programs for more than four decades. Our ongoing commitment is to expertly guide you in recovering your health and achieving your highest level of wellness with safe, natural, cutting-edge programs, based in naturopathy and Functional Medicine.

Our approach is truly holistic, integrating all the essential ingredients needed for a personalized program that creates optimal health: Diet, professional-grade dietary supplements, detoxification, fitness, herbs, and stress reduction are all key factors for producing successful outcomes. After thorough evaluation and testing, you will be coached on a do-able plan designed just for you. Most of our clients have chronic health issues and need to make a commitment to get coaching with us for 3-6months, minimum. There is no quick fix for difficult or chronic health issues. We want you to be healthy for the long run!

Our motto is, “Creating well-being through the power of choice”. The choices you make each day – the way you eat, breathe, move, think, relate, rest, recreate, create, express, and work- determines how much wellness you will experience. These choices interplay with your genetics and your environment to create the sum-total of your health. Our job is to empower you with the best tools possible, to teach you the options you have, and to coach and support you in implementing these new choices into your daily habits. Nothing less will prevent illness, overcome health problems, and sustain a high level of function every day.

We take time to really listen to you and care about you. Then I provide the necessary coaching while you implement the recommendations. I monitor how you are doing each step of the way. My top priority is helping you reach those health goals that are most important to you!

Imagine having results you may not have previously thought possible on your journey to restoring your health; Experiencing life with high energy, great digestion, mental clarity, sleeping well, feeling motivated, being in a good mood, experiencing less pain, feeling more joy, better able to perform, and functioning well as you age!

We can serve you either in-office in Lakewood or Boulder, CO, or virtually with telehealth via phone, Skype, Zoom, or FaceTime. In order to work with us, you don’t even have to leave your house! Todd also offers online classes from time to time.

The rewarding journey of health improvement is always within your reach. But you have to take the first steps. It takes commitment. It take perseverance. It takes expert guidance. It takes the right testing and tools. We are here to serve you in accomplishing that journey! Find out if our programs are right for you with a FREE 15 minute health strategy session with me! I can’t wait to meet you! Get started today.

Thanks so much for visiting,

Todd Nelson, D.Sc., Naturopath

About Todd:

He is also certified in: Massage therapy, iridology, Health Coach Intl., FirstLine Therapy, and Rayid method of personality assessment.

Todd is a well-known practitioner in Colorado. At one time he owned and directed the largest Naturopathic clinic in the state, overseeing 4 Naturopaths. For over four decades he has stayed on the leading edge of Naturopathic health care and Functional Medicine, taking courses each year through the Institute for Functional Medicine, Personalized Medicine Lifestyle Institute, and other training courses.

Todd enjoys working with a wide variety of people from all walks of life with a wide variety of health challenges. His talents, as reflected in his consistent 5 star reviews, are deep listening, compassionate presence, clear communication, and highly skilled ability to personalize a health plan for a person’s unique needs that get results. He is passionate about the power of natural living habits to restore health, overcome illness, and live a life of thriving wellbeing.

Todd believes in educating the public on natural health approaches for different health challenges and frequently lectures locally and nationally. He offers online webinars and group online programs on a regular basis. He has done many media appearances on radio, TV, and podcast interviews and is available as a guest for your show. He hosted Colorado’s #1 health talk radio show, Get Healthy!, for 7 years on 630KHOW.

Todd is the co-author, along with best selling author, Dr. Robert Ivker, of Arthritis Survival, Asthma Survival and Headache Surviva,. (Tarcher/Putnam). He is a major contributor to The Complete Self-Care Guide to Holistic Medicine, (Tarcher/Putnam), and most recently to Cannabis for Chronic Pain (2018,Touchstone).

Todd’s entry into natural health care was because of his own health. He had chronic irritable bowel syndrome and severe constipation, along with 2 rare genetic-based illnesses. After a few years of diligent searching and getting support by some pioneering Naturopathic Doctor’s like Dr. Bernard Jensen and Dr. John Christopher, Todd cured his chronic digestive problems. He also has Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and something called Charco-Marie-Tooth 2 neuropathy- so he is no stranger to chronic illness. Nonetheless, he maintains his own level of wellbeing far beyond most people who have these syndromes. He is also a cancer survivor/”thriver”! Todd believes that a diagnoses is not necessarily a “verdict”. And as Dr. Jensen taught him, “there’s always an alternative to the alternative!” He believes chronic illness can be one of our greatest teachers about practicing exceptional self-care and self-love on a daily basis.

Todd lives in Louisville, Colorado.
