Hey there!

I'm Dr. Kristen

I am passionate about giving people the tools to feel their best and live life to the fullest! My personal struggle with my hormones and digestion initially lead me to Naturopathic Medicine and a desire to help women reclaim their health. 

 

Trust me, health can actually be a lot less complicated than you think! My role is to view your health as a whole and come up with a strategy to help you reach your goals. Your symptoms are often clues that help point us in the direction of the root cause of your concerns. Rather than covering symptoms up, its my job to ask why these symptoms are here in the first place.

 

I graduated from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2021 and  completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology at Dalhousie University. In addition to women's health, mental health is another one of my passions.

 

When I'm not busy as a Naturopathic Doctor, I love baking, gardening, and diving into a great book - I am a die hard Harry Potter fan and have read the whole series about 5 times now!

 

I am honoured to guide you through your wellness journey, helping you navigate testing options, nutrition, lifestyle, supplements and herbs to create an individualized strategic plan for success.

Meet Emilia!

Emilia London, CNP (pending)

Co-op Student, Holistic Nutrition 

As long as I can remember, I have been interested in the complexities and artistry of the human body. The way each body system interacts with one another has always been a source of intrigue for me. This led me to pursue my undergraduate degree in Human Health Science at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology. When I started my undergrad, I wasn’t fully certain of where it would lead me. Many told me I should become a teacher due to my strong ability to teach, and so I contemplated becoming a science teacher. No matter what, I knew I wanted to help others in whatever career I pursued and waited for the right path to be confirmed.  

While in university, I was suffering from digestive complaints and food sensitivities that left me feeling confused and disheartened. I saw that my school was offering free consultations with a Holistic Nutritionist and decided to try it out. Her experience was insightful and empowering. The Nutritionist helped me get to the root causes of my digestive issues and gave me tools to support my digestive health. After this interaction, I knew that THIS was what I wanted to pursue and do for others. The field would allow me to combine my passion for health and human biology with my giftedness in teaching and wanting to help others.

I completed my Bachelor of Human Health Science with a minor in Chemistry and with highest distinction at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology in 2021. I then continued my studies to become a Certified Nutrition Practitioner (CNP) at the Institute for Holistic Nutrition and will be graduating in April 2024.

 

I am currently completing my placement hours with Dr. Kristen Johnson ND, and I am excited to offer my services. I have a passion for nutrition education and empowering others to live holistically well, and so I am excited for this opportunity to partner with you in your health journey!

Virtual Care

Our clinical practice is entirely virtual, so we conduct our appointments together via secure video chat or phone. 

Schedule our visits into your day like a meeting, and never leave the comfort of your home or office. Unfortunately, this means you can no longer take an entire sick day for a doctors appointment! 

  • What symptoms can I get help with?
    My passion is helping women manage their menstrual cycles. This means I love to help with things like painful periods, irregular cycles, PMS, and fertility. In addition to these female-centred concerns, I can also help you with things like gut health, mental health, weight loss, perimenopause, and overall health management.
  • Do you direct bill to Insurance Providers?
    No. At this time we no longer offer direct billing to insurance providers. However, you will get a receipt for your appointment that you can claim with your insurance company for reimbursement if your plan covers naturopathy.
  • I can't afford a 1-on-1 visit - what are my options?
    Your 1-on-1 visit includes not only the direct face time you get with me, but also my time spent interpreting labs, doing up to the minute research for your concern, and creating a comprehensive health plan for you. You'd be surprised how much work I put in behind the scenes to support you! If the price of a 1-on-1 visit is too much for your wallet right now, I encourage you to check out The Hormone Health Academy. I created this learning hub to make quality health information easily accessable. The courses and masterclasses you'll find there provide tons of information for a fraction of the price of seeing me 1-on-1! You can also check out my Freebies page! Lastly, don't forget to check your benefits! A lot of private health insurance has coverage for naturopathic care!
  • How long does it take to see results?
    When working with a naturopath, our interventions primarily rely on you! We will work together to find a combination of diet and lifestyle recommendations to move your health in the right direction. We will choose supplements and herbs to compliment these changes as your health progresses. Every person and condition is different, but for most menstrual or hormonal concerns we typically suggest giving yourself at least 3 months/cycles to notice the most profound results.
  • Do you treat men?
    Yes I do! While women's health and wellness is my passion, I also love supporting men in their health journey as well. If you'd like to learn more about what care might look like for you, I encourage you to book a free 15-minute Discovery Call with me so we can connect.
  • What's the difference between Naturopathic Medicine and Holistic Nutrition?
    Naturopathic Medicine is a form of primary care that focuses on the whole person and treating the root causes of disease. As a Naturopathic Doctor, Kristen practices botanical medicine, homeopathy, traditional Chinese medicine, nutritional supplementation, and diet and lifestyle counselling. With Dr. Kristen you get a medical assessment, diagnosis, bloodwork interpretation, and an overall health management strategy. Though some of the strategy of Naturopathic Medicine often includes Nutrition suggestions, Holistic Nutrition can help take these recommendations to the next level. Holistic Nutrition dives deeper into the impact that food has on our body. Our Holistic Nutritionist Student, Emilia can help translate nutrition suggestions from Dr. Kristen into your daily life. Emilia can spend time helping you understand how to choose what you are eating for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even snacks. She is also able to create meal plans for you! Holistic Nutrition and Naturopathic Medicine often work really well together, and are great services to explore side by side.
