November 2020 Dr. Pollack- I’m so grateful to be finally, after so may years, seeing improvement! I think the plan we set in motion is working! I had no idea what a SIBO infection was and had noooo idea that it could do so much damage. I wish I could somehow help all the people out there who struggle with this and have no idea what is wrong with them. I kind of feel like a lucky survivor of a plane crash! It was discouraging to see how little help was available through regular doctors. Even GI specialists! Unreal. Thank the Gods for naturopaths like you! Thank you so much for being so caring, for truly listening, and for helping me figure this crazy thing out.
April 2020 Dr. Nearpass- I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your help AND that we are expecting! You gave me so much hope and I appreciate your knowledge and compassion along the way. You are the first doctor that we have seen that spoke from words of possibility. Living in Frisco was a dreamy experience and all well worth it to have been able to work with you! Wishing you the very best through these times and always. I truly can’t thank you enough!
October 2019 Doctors Eryn Scott, Kim Nearpass and Justin Pollack~ "I think you guys should keep exactly what you're doing. Thank you for all you do to support holistic health in Summit County! We all get to enjoy life more. Thanks.
July 2019 Dr. Nearpass, Thanks again for your help, I feel very grateful to have crossed paths with you years back. You are honestly the only doctor I have ever felt I can trust with my health and actually knows what the heck they are doing! My mom said the same exact thing after her appointment last week :) Thank for all you do, you are helping so many people find their way back to health, which is seriously needed in our country right now!
January 2019 Thank you Dr. Justin Pollack: I’ve been battling an unknown, undiagnosed illness since August of 2017... I was at my wits end, leaving doctor’s offices crying and frustrated. Well, I had had enough, left an appointment in tears, and drove straight here. Made an appointment for the same week with Dr. Justin Pollack. The consultation was AMAZING... We spent 2 hours talking, going over everything, and he LISTENED to me, didn’t brush me off, didn’t make me feel like I was “crazy”, that my symptoms were psychosomatic... Please, if you’re going through an illness that is effecting your entire body, mind, and spirit, do yourself the kindness of coming here and seeing these wonderful people... It will literally change your life! More was accomplished in 2 hours with Dr. Pollack than has been accomplished in the last year... I felt so light walking out, so freed and I know we will develop a plan to get me well, to help me help myself!
April 2018 I have seen numerous Endocrinologist for my thyroid health and Dr. Nearpass was the only one who actually helped. Dietary changes have had a huge impact on my energy. Highly recommend this practice. --Google review
February 2018 Thank you Dr. Justin Pollack: My son developed moderate to severe eczema from head to toe at about one month after birth. He failed to thrive and gain weight appropriately as I was told he was allergic to my breast-milk. He was prescribed allergy friendly milk which is partially broken down for better digestion. That too I'm afraid worsened his symptoms. We saw Dermatologists, Allergy Specialists, Pediatricians, Chiropractors, and Naturopathic Doctors across the Roaring Fork Valley as well as in the Denver and Boulder area. We were desperate parents and willing to go anywhere. I would spend late nights scrutinizing the internet for any options, treatments or testimony that contained the cure to my son’s eczema and poor nutritional intake. He was blood tested and revealed multiple and pages worth of "reactions" to many different food groups. I thought to myself…what will my baby eat? How will he gain weight? Due to his constant scratching, bleeding, and skin infections his tummy time, sleep schedule, and normal infant development was severely interrupted. He required physical therapy to bring him up to par with children his age and the few foods he was able to eat offered little nutrition. I was concerned about nutritional deficiencies and worsening of his symptoms and or immune system. I literally spent hours upon hours praying for a miracle for almost three years. I TRULY cannot describe it any other way. I cried out to God in severe anguish for my son, and I literally found Mountain River Clinic, and Dr. Pollack in the middle of another sleepless night immediately after this prayer. His innovative, and progressive approach to allergies changed our lives and quite frankly that is an understatement. My son immediately started sleeping better, healing his eczema, and better yet we were even able to introduce new foods through his allergy reversal techniques. I am so extremely grateful, and I will continue to go to Dr. Pollack for follow ups and consultations as we continue to manage any remaining allergies. It's wonderful to see my sons renewed interest in playing, laughing and learning as a result of these treatments! I sincerely can't ever express it enough, how much this had a made a difference in our lives. November 2017 Dr. Kim Nearpass: I have to tell you, I owe you the largest thank you ever for all of your advice. I feel a hundred times better than I did the first time I met with you! I will always be eternally grateful for your support with getting away from medication and the knowledge you shared with me. You changed my life and I think you should know that. :)
October 2017 Thank you Dr. Kim Nearpass: I want you to know how much I appreciate all you do to get to the bottom of my health issues. When I am with you in the office I can see the wheels turning in your head as you are searching for answers. So glad I've got you. Blessings to you.
April 2017 Drs. Nearpass and Pollack! I just wanted to say thank you for letting me shadow your clinic and be a part of the patient visits! I thoroughly enjoyed myself. It was quite refreshing to see the foundations of naturopathic medicine be put to use with such great results! It's hard as a student to grasp how to implement the determinants of health with patients and not throw a bunch of supplements and modalities at them. I feel like I took so much away from those 3 short days I was there! I love how much you educate the patients and all of your handouts are awesome! You're the first docs I've shadowed who really made sure the patients understand what exactly is going on with their body, which I could tell every single one appreciated! So thank you for being so welcoming and open to me being there! ~Lauren Marcoullier (ND student)
November 2016 Dr. Kim Nearpass: You have been a God send to me, I am so glad that I met you this year!
October 2016 Dr. Nearpass: I thought you would want to know that Nepal and Everest Base Camp were a big success, thanks to you and your guidance!! I made it to the top and didn't even get a bit sick. Thank you!!
April 2014 We were very pleased with the services we received from Mountain River Naturopathic. They gave great care and remedies that help my children recover quickly from their upper respiratory infections. They truly care about seeing you well and thriving in life. We are happy to have their expertise in our area! --Google review
November 2012 I was visiting Frisco, Colorado this summer with my daughter and granddaughter, and Drs. Nearpass and Pollack recommended that I have a full blood panel as they observed that I seemed overly impacted by the altitude (coming from sea level). I followed their advice, and learned during this visit that I was severely anemic. They were concerned and recommended an iron supplement, and that I follow up with my doctor in California right away as I had to return home the next day. My interpretation of “right away” kept me from following up for several months, but when I finally did see my G.P., she ordered a colonoscopy and I learned I had cancer! Within two weeks of the diagnosis, my tumor was removed and my pathology results thankfully showed this was still an early cancer that had not metastasized to the adjacent lymph nodes or organs. My doctors ALL told me that I was fortunate to have such astute practitioners in Colorado, who brought to light a problem I would most likely have ignored or excused away by other stressful factors in my life, and they noted that naturopathic doctors often notice things that traditional practitioners do not, unless a specific test indicates a specific problem. Justin and Kim were looking at the whole person, and I am so grateful to them for giving me this knowledge that certainly allowed me to continue my very blessed life. During the same visit, my 30-year old daughter’s blood test results indicated she had some serious thyroid imbalances, and she was able to follow up with a specialist, and is working on controlling those imbalances, which did not have any noticeable physical symptoms, but cause her to have considerable mood swings that might otherwise have been treated with medications that treated the symptoms, but did not address the underlying problem.
January 2011 I wanted to let you know how pleased we have been with our son’s health since you began treating him (with BioSET) in November, Dr. Justin Pollack. For the first time since I can remember, his sinuses are clear. Finding the root of the cause, the mold allergy, and reversing it, has improved his overall health so dramatically. The underlying allergy seemed to keep him in a constant state of infection that affected every aspect of his life. He wasn’t sleeping well, he was grouchy, he didn’t have any energy, and he couldn’t fight off any sort of infection; he was constantly sick. However, within 24 hours after our first visit, our son was breathing better, sleeping better, and feeling better. Even his hockey coaches noticed and commented on the sudden and dramatic improvement that followed your treatment. After missing more than 5 days of school before seeing you for the first time, he hasn’t missed any days due to illness since. When we saw you for the follow up visit in December, he did have a mild cold. You mentioned that you hadn’t worked much with reversing viruses with your bioSET protocol, but the treatment that day also improved his virus dramatically the next day. He rebounded very quickly from the virus, something his body hadn’t been able to do in about 18 months. Obviously, that was a remedy that worked! I cannot thank you enough for helping our son. As parents, we were so concerned that we could not help him feel better. It was very frustrating watching him be sick over and over again. It is such a relief to see him happy and healthy and feeling good! We look forward to our next visit to clear the remaining allergies. I’ve also recommended you to a friend, who will hopefully be calling you soon about her son’s allergies!
August 2010 Thank you Dr. Kim Nearpass for all of your help and support in my fight against dysplasia! I feel more healthy than ever before. You inspired me to change my diet and start listening to my body – I’m so grateful, I’ll never go back. This whole experience has been life changing and really tough, but now I can look back and actually be glad that it happened. What a good feeling!
February 2010 Thank you Dr. Kim Nearpass. A little over a year ago, I was faced with the daunting news that pregnancy would be a difficult possibility for my husband and I. I envisioned spending my summer break going to Denver for invasive fertility procedures. When Dr. Gutierrez recommended that I see you first, I was a bit skeptical but figured I’d give it a try. From the first time that we met together, I felt completely at ease and optimistic that I had mad the right choice! Not only did you help me navigate through the world of fertility, but you helped me become a healthier person in general. Elizabeth has brought more joy to our lives than I could have imagined. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything!
March 2010 Thank you Dr. Justin Pollack: I thought that hemochromatosis was to only follow the male bloodline as far as genetics...but you proved to me that it CAN affect the female bloodline as well. I went again last week down to Denver to Bonfils for another blood draw and was so hyper and happy to get that excessive iron out of my body! I felt and still feel like a million bucks! AND I’ve lost more weight. If you recall, when I first met with you I was about 200 lbs and 5'9"...and now in a few short months, I’m at 175 and continuing to be more fit and lose weight to my appropriate weight. I signed up for a gym membership at the Silverthorne Rec Center, I bought a mountain bike, and I can’t WAIT to do my 14ers again with more zest and vibrance than ever before! People at work have asked me "where are you getting all of this energy and optimism?" I’m so glad that I didn’t settle for another medical doc giving me the "bandaid" of prednisone, because it made me feel worse over the past 3 years vs better, AND prednisone contributed to my 50 lb weight GAIN. I appreciate that YOU took the time to put the puzzle pieces together and really get to the source of what was truly "ailing" me. My parents are super happy that I stumbled over you as well! :) Thanks so much...and God Bless You and your family!
August 2008 Thank you Dr. Justin Pollack: I had developed allergies to cats, dogs, horses and other unknown farm animals, but after two BioSET clearings, I was able to go on a vacation to a ranch, and ride horses again! I was able to adopt a kitten this summer too!
June 2007 Thank you Dr. Justin Pollack and Kim Nearpass: After years of medical care that was at best, indifferent, your expertise & concern gives us hope. Thank you for being a part of our lives. I appreciate the wonderful care you and Kim have given to our daughter.
