In life as in clinical experience, Dr. Kirsten Almon believes that each person must be assessed on 3 levels... mind, body, and spirit. She believes that symptoms are warning signals of improper functioning of the body and when ignored, can result in chronic disease.
She has a naturopathic Family Practice with special interest and training in fertility (helping couples conceive naturally as well as improving outcomes for couples using assisted reproductive technology), pregnancy, birth, postpartum, women's issues, and pediatric care. She loves seeing children for "naturopathic well child visits" and consults on common issues such as food introduction, how to avoid colds, flus and ear infections. She works along side of Midwives, Obstetricians and MDs while attending births as a Doula.
Her practice tools include clinical nutrition, homeopathy and drainage, acupuncture, herbs and detoxification. Dr. Almon is also trained in Craniosacral therapy and Applied kinesiology.
Dr. Almon is the co-author and instructor of a Doula course specifically designed for Naturopathic Doctors, and teaches across Canada.
Dr. Almon enjoys living a naturopathic lifestyle with her husband Doug Andrews ND, daughter Evelyn and son Callum. Activities include playing ultimate frisbee, doing yoga, meditation and Dr Almon especially enjoys swimming in near-freezing ocean waters.
