Todd Nelson, D.Sc

A leader in natural wellness for forty years.

Todd has helped countless individuals achieve optimal health and wellness through his natural approach to health restoration. He focuses on the entire person, including their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health, and takes into account each person's unique needs, values, and life circumstances.

Todd was interested in helping humanity from a young age, a drive that only intensified after going to college at the International Center for Natural Health Medicine in Minnesota. After graduating in 1982 with a Naturopathic degree, he went on to get an honorary Doctor of Science in Holistic Health along with multiple certifications in Iridology, Massage Therapy, FirstLine Therapy, Rayid Method of Personality Assessment, and Health Coach Intl. Todd directed the largest Naturopathic clinic in Colorado, which oversaw 4 naturopaths. He continues to update his training each year, taking courses in Functional Medicine, Personalized Medicine, and Naturopathic practice.

Todd’s passion for the restorative power of nature began with his own body. He was suffering from chronic irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and two other rare conditions that made his health very fragile. He received support from pioneering naturopaths like Dr. Bernard Jensen and Dr. John Christopher before his chronic digestive problems were finally managed.

Todd is also a proud cancer survivor/”thriver”, believing that a chronic illness doesn't have to be a verdict. A chronic illness can also be one of our greatest teachers. The long battle with chronic ailments can ultimately teach us the power of self-love and self-care while allowing us to thrive. His own experience with his health enabled him to more deeply understand that each person requires a personalized approach. And his own suffering deepened his compassion and patience for his clients' struggles. Subsequently Todd's deep passion for using nature to relieve chronic pains and illnesses while restoring optimal function made him incredibly popular among his clients over the years!

The support and guidance Todd received during his toughest years changed his life for the better, and he continuously wants to do the same for his community. Todd has a passionate drive to serve humanity and envisions an even larger impact! Tree of Life Naturopathics was born with the intention to help millions of people who are struggling and needing expert guidance!

In addition to his private practice, Todd is also a sought-after speaker and educator, delivering lectures and workshops on natural health and wellness to both professional and lay audiences. Todd has also appeared on radio, TV, and podcasts. He hosted Colorado’s #1 health talk radio show, Get Healthy!, for 7 years on 630 KHOW. Todd is the co-author, along with best selling author, Dr. Robert Ivker, of Arthritis Survival: Asthma Survival and Headache Survival. (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 is an avid writer, contributing articles and blog posts on natural health and wellness to several online publications. He is a firm believer in the power of education and is committed to helping others learn about natural medicine and how to live healthier, more balanced lives.

Finding natural and holistic health solutions is rarely easy, but a few dedicated practitioners are making a huge difference in making them more accessible.
