At CuraCore, we are committed to providing education for veterinary healthcare practitioners in scientific integrative medicine to improve patient quality of life as well as to raise the bar for standards of veterinary medical care. The way we approach integrative medicine provides vets and their patients with safe, effective treatments that are established on research-based evidence and a scientific foundation. We believe that integrative medicine upheld by science is a solution veterinarians can rely on rather than assuming that pharmacological treatments and surgery are the only options. Integrative medicine can work in place of or lesson the need for medical drugs and even surgery.

Did you know that treatment options beyond drugs and surgery actually lower veterinary medical costs and enhance the patient’s overall well-being and satisfaction with the treatment? We’re in full support of overthrowing the former model of drugs and surgery being the first treatment option for issues like functional disorders and pain in animals. Increasing your patient’s bodily ability to gently and naturally heal without all kinds of additional side-effects that result from prescription drugs should be the top priority for each animal doctor’s medical learning. To bring healing to the patients in their care, we must “heal” the way our veterinary medical doctors practice.



Our Mission

To humanize medicine in order to improve patient outcomes, reduce healthcare costs, and restore joy to the profession of caring for others.

To teach healthcare providers how, when, and why to include integrative medical options as first-line approaches alongside or instead of medications and surgery.

To encourage critical thinking, a scientific rationale, and a basis of evidence across the conventional - integrative healthcare continuum.

CuraCore’s History

In the 1990’s, the Curacore Integrative Medicine & Education Centers serving both the US and Canada began. The President and CEO of CuraCore, Dr. Narda Robinson, first started her practice with osteopathic medicine. She then grew her career, adding veterinary medicine. Over the span of the next 20 years, Dr. Robinson used integrative medicine to treat both veterinary and human patients. At the same time, she taught and researched integrative medicine practices and principles at Colorado State University in Fort Collins. This enabled Dr. Robinson to develop a state-of-the-art method of practicing and teaching integrative medical treatments that trumped the mythical beliefs that have been referred to as holistic care. Rather than depending on unseen energies or mystic mechanisms in order to examine and seek out the merits of “alternative” medical treatments, she created methods and put together courses that had sound scientific foundations and were based on research. The platform of education for integrative medicine at CuraCore is significantly different from others in that it rests securely upon science. Our education also focuses on the need for veterinary healthcare providers to seek out other solutions that result in greater outcomes than can be expected with only drugs and surgery.
