Jacqueline Fields, MD

A practicing physician since 1993, Jacqueline Fields is board-certified in both Family Practice and Integrative Holistic Medicine, with additional specialization in Functional Medicine. She trained during medical school with Dr. Andrew Weil and has worked extensively with tribal medicine of various cultures around the world. In her practice, she utilizes allopathic medicine as well as integrative modalities. She frequently serves as a consulting physician for patients struggling with complex, chronic health conditions. Drawn to teach people about the natural aspects of healing and to make functional integrative health care accessible to people in need, Dr. Fields’ practice of medicine extends well beyond her offices, into the local community and beyond. In 2003, Dr. Fields founded The Healing Gardens in Fort Collins, Colorado. This holistic integrative medicine center connects a diverse network of collaborating practitioners and resources to meet the health care needs of patients. Overseen by Dr. Fields, The Healing Gardens ecosystem includes the Health Center, Medicinal Store, Living Arts Center, Foundation, and the Dr. Fields’ Sacred Skin product line.
