DR. KIRSTEN ALMON
Naturopathic Doctor, Certified in Hypnotherapy
In life as in clinical experience, Dr. Kirsten Almon (she/her) 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 novel fertility support, pregnancy, birth, postpartum, women's health 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 supporting growth and development. Dr. Almon is invigorated when teaching women about infradian rhythms and how they can ignite their own healing potential and thrive.
Her practice tools include clinical nutrition, homeopathy and drainage, acupuncture, herbs and detoxification. Dr. Almon is also trained in Craniosacral therapy and Applied kinesiology.
She practiced as a birth doula for 15 years and was honored to support many women and their partners in this process.
Dr. Almon was certified in HypnoBirthing, the Mongan Method. Later after realizing the power of the mind in birth, she wanted to become a certified Hypnotherapist so that she could use this tool to help any of her patients, pregnant or not. She is registered with IMDHA.
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 healthy lifestyle with her husband Doug Andrews ND and their children. Current interests include biohacking, snowshoeing, pilates (often in her pjs!), yoga nidra and wim hof breath work. She especially enjoys swimming in near-freezing ocean or lake waters.
