This practice treats chronic conditions both metabolic and neurological. Dr. Ian is very honest about if he believes he can treat you and tells you this upfront. Dr. Henry is treating me for PTSD with neurofeedback and other therapies. Both of these docs don't stop till they get to the root cause of your problems. It's working and I now have brain maps to confirm this.
I went to see Dr. Ian at the beginning of 2017. I have been struggling with illness for almost 20 years. I’ve tried everything you can think of to help my body get better, but I always ended up feeling horrible again. Extreme fatigue, joint pain, ringing in the ears, poor sleep, depression and low energy were just a few of the symptoms I was struggling with on a daily. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s in 2012. I was given no hope; just a pill. I have been told many things throughout my quest to find answers: “It’s all in your head,” “you just need to take more medication,” “you are just depressed,” and “you are a young mom; you are supposed to be tired.” This never made sense to me because I couldn’t even do simple chores around the house. I would do some sort of natural protocol and it would help a bit but I knew there was more to life than having to meter out my energy reserves. The first time I sat in Dr. Ian’s office, I felt understood. He listened to me, and my husband and I felt confident that he could help. We dug around to find my root cause and we started a plan. The plan takes ENDURANCE! The journey is LONG. The work is PAINFUL. There is not a magic pill to take to make you feel better. You have to work HARD. Dr. Ian and his staff will help you every step of the way. Today, I am still on my journey, and I need to remind myself that I didn’t get this way overnight and I am not going to heal overnight. BUT, I have hope. I have more energy. My joint pain and ringing in my ears are GONE. I sleep better because we found that I have sleep apnea and now use a cpap machine at night. Sleep is a glorious thing! I was taking a walk one day and realized that I was smiling without a reason. My depression is getting better. If you are willing to do the hard work then this is the place for you. Did I mention that the office staff and the rest of the crew are fantastic? They are very personable and kind.
Red Tail Wellness center has been a huge help to me on my path to healing. When I first came to Red Tail, I was almost out of hope; having gone to no less than 20 different doctors and healers in the past year, with an assortment of symptoms from chronic anxiety, depression and mood swings, to TMJ and chronic pain in my neck and shoulders. My physical pain and emotional issues were so severe before going to Red Tail, that I was unable to complete many of my basic life tasks, and I basically had to put my life on hold for a time. I had closed down my business and many of my relationships were suffering, and my every day experience was one of immense suffering. After having seen so many different doctors with very little results, I was feeling discouraged and I am so happy to have found Red Tail, and I can now say that I am very much on a path of healing. My depression symptoms went from being something that ruled over my life, to being something that pops up here and there and is easily manageable. I feel like my anxiety is completely under control, and I just feel better and healthier in my mind than I did before. The mental haziness, lack of direction, and the confusion that were symptomatic of my depression have subsided, and I’m feeling stronger than ever. I had been experiencing repetitive thinking patterns that spiraled into panic attacks for many years and, after doing neurofeedback, coupled with nutrition and trigenics, I find that that is not a problem anymore. The neurofeedback definitely had amazing effects on me and I highly recommend it. I feel like I got a clean slate and a fresh start with my mental/ emotional health. I was always determined to heal but unfortunately some of my mental patterns and issues were so deeply ingrained that my determination alone was not getting me very far and having this extra help has been huge for me. Through working with on nutrition with Ramya, I also became aware of the issues in my gut and how that might be affecting my mental (and overall) health. We were able to pinpoint foods that were harmful to me and remove them from my diet. I got a greater understanding of nutrients that may be lacking in my vegetarian diet, and how to supplement those nutrients in a way that still honored my preferred diet. The use of supplements to get my health back on track has been hugely helpful for me. I can feel my hormones starting to balance out, I have more energy, and my IBS symptoms and constant bloating have been greatly reduced. My digestion is all-around healthy and normal after doing this work with Red Tail. My pain has also been greatly reduced, and I experience many days which are without pain. Only 4 months ago, this accomplishment seemed like a distant and unrealistic dream after 4 years of chronic, and almost constant, debilitating pain. I still have a ways to go before this pain is completely healed, but I am satisfied with the progress being made, and I am now able to return to doing activities I love, such as painting and yoga. Trigenics and the complimentary therapies were hugely helpful to me, and they seem to me to indicate a greater understanding and support of healing my chronic pain, than any other treatment I have experienced. Lastly, everyone who works at Red Tail is completely lovely and I really enjoyed going there daily for the two months that my program lasted. I look forward to follow ups and I can’t recommend this place highly enough!
I found out I had Hashimoto's in 2014 thanks to Dr. Ian I have been in remission for almost 4 years! He is truly a blessing! I can't recommend him enough!
I came to Red Tail Wellness after being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and living with psoriasis for several years. I have always felt “healthy" but leading up to my work with Dr. Ian and Red Tail Wellness I was eating poorly, feeling tired, slightly depressed, psoriasis was constantly flaring up and overall, just not well emotionally and physically. I was consistently eating gluten, dairy and sugar all of which were wreaking havoc on my autoimmune system, hormones and mental health. What I wanted was just to feel good in my body and mind, but I was committed to my bad habits and being emotionally attachment to food. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s right before seeing Dr. Ian and had been living with psoriasis for several years. I had been treating my psoriasis with traditional western medicine which just minimized the symptoms and never actually aided in any healing. But, it was because of the Hashimoto’s that I looked for a serious solution to my health issues. I sought out Red Tail Wellness based on a referral from a friend. I knew that I needed to address the underlying causes of my hashimoto's and I knew this friend also treated her Hashimoto’s successfully with Dr Ian’s help. After my initial meeting with Dr. Ian, I knew it was going to be a great fit for my health goals and treating my Hashimoto’s. I felt understood and seen. I saw improvements in my health almost immediately after beginning the program. Food was and is such a big factor in my healing. Dr. Ian and team provided me with all of the resources I needed to get off to a successful start. They were my foundation. After just a couple of weeks, I had lost several pounds and felt my brain fog start to lift. The psoriasis which had plagued my life for years finally started to clear up on its own without the help of topical steroids. I can say with all honesty that without the professional help of Dr. Ian and his team, I would not be where I am today. After 5 months of clean eating, taking the supplements, and proper exercise my hormones are starting to balance themselves, my psoriasis is 90% clear and I have officially sent my Hashimoto’s into remission. Before starting with Dr. Ian my thyroid Antibodies were 300+ and are now down to 12. 12! My progress has been unbelievable and I couldn’t feel happier or healthier. I would with 100% confidence recommend Red Tail Wellness and Dr. Ian to anyone I know who just isn’t feeling their best, needs support with their health goals, or is looking to heal the systems rather than just covering up symptoms with western medicine. I already have circulated his name with friends and close family and I am sure that some will use his on their journey toward health. A big thank you to Dr. Ian and his team at Red Tail!
Dr Ian diagnosed a couple things wrong with me before I got official diagnoses. I wish I could afford to keep going but unfortunately it’s just out of my price range right now. Highly recommend the brain reconditioning method they use with the lights. I noticed a significant difference in my anxiety and depression after my treatments too. All around I recommend Red Tail if you can afford it.
My 16 year old son was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease (Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis) 1 ½ years ago. He spent nearly a month in intensive care with complications from chronic inflammation including kidney failure. After a year of intense medication and immune suppression, his symptoms started to flare up again. He had extreme fatigue, horrible sinus issues, very high inflammation, high blood pressure from kidney failure and couldn’t attend school regularly. His medical plan was to increase medication of chemo drugs and steroids. It was at this point that I saw his future going down a dark an unpleasant path of re-occurring flares, negative drug side effects and hospitalization. I became desperate to find a way to heal his body and not just suppress symptoms. In my intense research, there was much confusion to why his body was reacting this way and what exactly his body needed and what other types of treatments he should try. Although he needed to be on these drugs to suppress the disease, and we are grateful he had them when he needed them, western medicine offered no other solutions to address the root cause of the problem so he could begin the healing process. That is when we found Dr. Hollaman at Red Tail Wellness and finally had some relief and hope. Dr. Hollaman and his team were able to immediately put him on a recovery plan. After just a few months, he no longer had fatigue, his lab results were improving, blood pressure was normal, and we were able to start weaning off steroids. He started to feel like a normal teenager again. It has now been 8 months and almost all lab results are in the normal range. He is completely off steroids and we are discussing to wean off of immune suppressants. He is back to a full schedule in school, has a part time job, and still has energy to hit the gym several times a week. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Hollaman and his team. We have seen many doctors on this journey and to find one that is so passionate about his patients and is always working for my sons’ recovery is truly a blessing. He always has new information for us to research on this horrible disease and gives us questions to bring to his other medical team so he can continue to heal for long term health. I will add that it wasn’t an easy journey to get to where he is today. It takes dedication on everyone’s part and our lives will be forever changed however, it all has been worth it and we wouldn’t have been able to get where we are today without the team at Red Tail Wellness. Forever Grateful!!!
When I came to Dr. Ian's office I was looking for better digestion and brain function. What he found were several other problems that I was not aware of; mainly that I've got an auto-immune problem. After going through the program with diet and supplements, the auto-immune is now cleared up (which is very important) and other issues have improved as well. Dr. Ian has a vast medical knowledge and is very good at diagnosing problems and providing the correct approach to solving them. I can't say enough about Dr. Ian's staff. They are very well versed in their jobs, able to answer any questions, and always cheerful and present. It's nice to be greeted by name and with a smile any time I enter the office.
Prior to working with Dr Ian, I spent almost two years working with an MD trying to heal my gut and reverse food, chemical and environmental sensitivities. A month before reaching out I hit a breaking point, collapsed at work and then spent almost a month in bed. When I walked into Red Tail for the first time, I was weak, terrified and feeling pretty hopeless. I was immediately greeted by the staff and treated like family. My initial exam with Dr Ian was eye opening. I appreciated that he talked to me about what he was doing and explained everything thoroughly. I decided to work with him on the spot. It’s now been almost six months since I started working with him, and I can’t put into words how blessed I feel to have found him. My health was a complex case, but within a few months he was able to do more for me than my MD was able to do in two years. He identified many of the things that were triggering my actions and was able to prescribe treatments that supported my body to begin healing. There have been many ups and downs over the last six months, and I've worked really hard to diligently follow the protocols, but Dr Ian has also provided exceptional support and education along the way. He’s super friendly, listens to my concerns, and always takes the time to educate me about why he is opting for certain treatments or supplements. I’m still on my healing journey, but the results I've made are priceless. My anxiety is completely gone, I have more energy now than I’ve had in over a decade, my environmental and chemical sensitivities have disappeared, I haven’t had any gut symptoms in over a month and my nervous system has stabilized. Without his support and knowledge, I honestly do not believe I would be where I am today.
Ian basically saved my husband's life by helping us find a way to reduce nerve pain through healthy living. My husband was on a max dosage of Lyrica twice daily and a hydrocodene a day for a number of years after he broke his neck. Now he is off both. Follow Ian's directions and he should be able to help immensely.
When I chose to visit Red Tail Wellness I had been struggling with extreme fatigue, anxiety and depression, and some ambiguous but frustrating digestive symptoms. I was feeling at a loss for what to do and in a place where I was so exhausted I would sleep anytime I wasn't working. I wasn't sure what was happening to me but I sensed it was something big and Dr. Hollaman was actually able to diagnose the issue. I was anemic and my digestive track was suffering from unknown food allergies and the two were of course related. Receiving this news wasn't easy for me but Dr. Ian made everything so streamlined for me, giving me a plan for neurofeedback treatment, nutrition and also supplementation that would help my body rebuild itself and heal. He also helped me with some structural issues and gave me exercises to maintain proper structure of my spine! I had never encountered functional medicine before and I was blown away with how wholistic the treatment was and I appreciated the understanding that my three issues would heal and help each other heal as a consequence. The best part of my experience was truly seeing big changes in my iron levels and energy and my brain function just within the two months I had to work with Dr. Ian before I moved away. The team at Red Tail's confidence in that they could help me feel healthy and thriving again within two months was an amazing thing and I have those results I am so thankful for. Especially in this transitional time for me, being able to turn my whole body around from where it was going and to start living again is something I am so glad I chose to take on for myself. I would absolutely recommend Red Tail to everyone in Boulder, especially to those who just don't know what they are struggling with and need that extra support and guidance.
This Doc knows his stuff! Love this place and the information you receive is priceless.
I started feeling sluggish and tired but thought that it had something to do with my lack of sleep and stress at work (and found it eventually it did!) After years of struggling I was diagnosed by my MD with Hashimoto's hypothyroidism. At 30, this really scared me. I did not know what to look forward to and the symptoms varied from day to day. I had trouble getting out of bed. I had emotional mood swings. My skin was extremely dry and I constant stomach pains. I was prescribed Levothyroxine but I was not really feeling any relief. After searching around I found Red Tail Wellness Center and Dr. Ian. When I met Dr. Ian I immediately felt a connection. You can tell he cares so much about his patients! He is enthusiastic and takes the time to really explain the WHY of things are happening in your body. We focused on the importance of diet and supplements as well as lowering stress and getting the right amount of sleep. Within one month I started to feel better! I forgot what it was like to have energy. My digestive issues are almost completely gone. I continue to see improvements. Dr. Ian keeps in touch and he is very responsive. Amy is great to talk to and gives plenty of options regarding diet. Nancy and Joy are extremely sweet and helpful. I highly recommend Red Tail Wellness! You won't regret it!
I was struggling with several symptoms that had developed slowly over the course of a couple of years. Fatigue, brain fog, aches in my joints and muscles, lack of energy and motivation, insomnia and general malaise to name just a few. I had tried a few traditional and alternative medicine specialists but nothing was helping. When my wife suggested functional medicine, I was slightly skeptical but as I began to research it more, I became excited. Luckily, I found Dr. Ian. Through his thorough examination he concluded that I had dysbiosis (leaky gut) and started me on a diet and supplement regimen that began to help the symptoms almost immediately. Over the next few months, my symptoms subsided and I took control of my life again. His program was difficult to follow, but it worked very quickly and I was so desperate, that I didn’t mind. He also worked with me to customize a plan that worked for my budget and busy lifestyle. Additionally, everyone at the office is kind, supportive and accommodating. I highly recommend Dr. Ian and Red Tail Wellness.
At the age of 36, I was depressed, yelling at my children, tossing and turning each night, had high stress, had chronic neck pain with migraines, was perimenopausal!, and was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s. I spent 2 years going Paleo, seeking the help of fitness coaches, traditional physicians, and alternative physicians. At 38, nothing had improved. I found Dr. Ian and a good counselor at the same time. I spent my precious assets of time and money, but now that I’m about to turn 40, I can say that it was worth it. The neurofeedback (which seemed a bit sketchy when I started ) helped me to find restful sleep. My husband is thrilled that I’m no longer keeping him up, and I’m thrilled that I awake feeling rested. The elimination diet, food testing and nutrition support helped me craft something better than standard Paleo, something specific just for me, something that has eliminated my IBS-like symptoms and helps to keep my immune system in great shape. Before seeing Dr. Ian, I would get at least 4 colds/illnesses per year. I’ve had 1 cold in the past year and half. Trigenics has resolved my 5 years of chronic neck pain. And, finally, my thyroid – It will never be 100% healed. However, with Dr. Ian’s guidance, the right supplements, the right nutrition, laser, and PMF, I no longer experience the horrible side-effects of wanting to flee my life, give away my children, and constant anger. I cried in my first appointment with Dr. Ian and told him that I wanted to dance with joy again. Now I do! Dr. Ian wants to help people. He’s not always the greatest at expressing that as he gets a new relationship started because he’s not a salesman, he’s a medical professional. He’s a bit of a geek with how much intelligence resides in his brain! That probably makes it hard/uncomfortable for him to sell himself. However, he will use all of that research and knowledge to customize a plan for your specific needs. He will identify things about you that you hadn’t realized yet. He will make connections that no other physician does. I’m so very thankful that I put my trust in him. He has helped me put my life back together!
When I began treatment at Red Tail Wellness Center in September of 2016, I was experiencing chronic tension and pain in my head, neck, shoulders, and back from an auto accident that occurred a year and a half previously. I was also struggling with years of depression, mood swings, foggy brain, lack of motivation, and constant forgetfulness. Before seeing Dr. Hollaman, I had tried a variety of therapeutic treatments including Massage Therapy, Chiropractic, Psychiatry, Active Release Technique, and Acupuncture, which only brought temporary relief. Needless to say, I felt hopeless and thought I would never find an answer to resolving these issues. It was such a relief when Dr. Hollaman told me that his program could address my chronic pain and everything else I was experiencing. After some initial testing, Dr. Hollaman noticed there were certain areas of my brain that were not functioning in a balanced state, which could be addressed through Neurofeedback. He also put me on a program to receive Trigenics, Cold Laser, and Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) for my chronic pain, and had recommended I work with a nutritionist to get my diet on track to decrease the inflammation in my body. After the first week of being on a specific nutritional plan, I noticed my joints weren’t hurting like they used to and my skin had cleared up. After three sessions of Trigenics Therapy, Cold Laser, and PEMF, the chronic pain and tension I was feeling was about 50% better than when I originally started the program. After ten sessions of Neurofeedback, I noticed my mind was less foggy and my mood seemed a little more balanced. After three months of weekly treatments I can now say that I am more focused, my memory is much sharper, I am more stable emotionally, my Depression is almost non-existent, and the chronic pain and tension in my body has significantly improved with lasting results. What I liked the most about the treatment program at Red Tail Wellness Center is that Dr. Hollaman didn’t just try to fix the symptoms I was experiencing, but he looked at every aspect of my life to find the cause of my health issues and treated me accordingly. In the end I felt more balanced physically, mentally, and emotionally. I would highly recommend Dr. Ian Hollaman and his staff at Red Tail Wellness Center to anyone looking to improve his or her overall health.
I have had issues with sleep and sleep deprivation most of my life. On a night being up at 2 am I realized I either needed to get some help or start taking opiates, as not sleeping was no longer an option. Dr. Ian was able to quickly identify some issues with diet and lifestyle along with neurofeedback therapy and now I get 7-8 hours of sleep a night and wake up rested for the first time in as long as I can remember. Thank you to Dr. Ian and his wonderful staff.
Dr. Ian is a whiz and has really intelligent (backed up by science!) answers all of my questions. I'm feeling better and better.
