Allergist Nick Nonas, a physician for more than 30 years, has long looked beyond the boundaries of conventional medicine to find ways to help his patients. Based in the Denver area since 1973, he has over time developed a unique approach that combines conventional medicine and alternative components, including homeopathy and acupuncture. Early in my medical career, he notes, "I successfully cleared up my own symptoms with complementary medicine. How can I really do any less for my patients?"

As a newly minted doctor in the U.S. Air Force in the early 1970s, Dr. Nonas was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. But as he researched the subject, he grew skeptical. He was then stationed in Georgia and noticed that the high mold spore counts of the surrounding swamps increased his symptoms. "That's where I discovered there seemed to be environmental aspects to my own illness," he recalls. His interest in the subject got him put in charge of the allergy clinic at the base and also led to a lifelong interest in both allergies and environmental triggers.

Dr. Nonas was Medical Director of the Littleton Center of American WholeHealth (AWH) in Colorado from 1997-2000 and served as a clinical consultant for WholeHealthMD. He is widely respected for his expertise in allergies and immune-system disorders.Today his practice continues in Littleton. CO and he reaches out to the public on his website,
