Staff Picks for Healthy Eats

Hi, I'm Dr. Marie Starling.

At The Healing Center, we help people like you reach their full potential.

I specialize in adjunctive care for internal disorders, autoimmune conditions, IBS, thyroid symptoms, diabetes, and other complex health issues.


As a functional medicine practice, we encourage building a lifestyle that supports optimum health whether you have leaky gut, autoimmune, gastrointestinal, or thyroid issues. For many of our patients with gluten and other food sensitivities, eating out can be a challenge.  With the holidays approaching, we wanted to give you some of our top picks for healthy eats around Denver. Enjoy!

In Doubt about Gout?

Gout is a form of arthritis that this characterized by sudden reoccurring attacks of severe pain, redness, tenderness, heat/warmth, and swelling in the joints of the body. The metatarsal-phalangeal joint is the most commonly affected area of the body, but it can also affect other major joints of the body (ex: hand, wrist, elbow, knee, ankle, etc…). Gout is commonly caused by an increased intake in foods that are rich in purines and/or a dysfunction of the kidney’s ability to properly excrete uric acid from the body.
