About Dr. Kali
ND, MSAc, MS
Dr. Kali Olsen is a board-certified Naturopathic physician offering a holistic, lifestyle-based preventative medicine approach to health, including a focus on womxn’s health and graceful aging - two areas of medicine commonly underestimated for the progress gentle, thoughtful treatments can achieve. Rooted in research and utilizing the most gentle approach possible for each patient, her services include naturopathic health consultations, acupuncture for varied complaints, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, lifestyle and nutritional guidance, stress management, and in-depth lab testing.
Though trained to treat conditions of all systems of the body, Dr. Kali practices with a special interest in:
Anxiety and Stress
Naturopathic doctors are trained to be the "detectives" of the medical world. This is why
Dr. Kali schedules her appointments to be an hour or more with each patient in order to fully explore their health history and attempt to unearth the root causes of their illness. This is also why she commonly utilizes functional medical testing that goes a step farther than your typical blood test.
Dr. Kali offers a number of specialized lab tests, including comprehensive hormone testing, food allergy or sensitivity testing, and stool analysis testing to map out your microbiome, digestion, and inflammation. These specialty labs are a useful tool in providing a more clear picture of your health concerns.
Dr. Kali completed her medical training at the University of Bridgeport, participating in academic and clinical training in the graduate level Naturopathic medicine, Acupuncture, and Nutrition programs offered at UB. She completed both the Biomedical Science Examination and Core Clinical Science Examinations of the NPLEX Licensing Board exams, including additional elective examinations in Minor Surgery and Pharmacology.
Although acupuncture treatments are already included under the Naturopathic scope of practice in Connecticut, Dr. Kali has also completed her Master of Science in Acupuncture at the University of Bridgeport Institute of Acupuncture. She pursued this degree so that the graceful integration of both Naturopathic and Eastern medicine can be used to offer patients the best of both healing philosophies. Acupuncture is a safe, drug-free, and effective healing tool that can be used to treat issues ranging from insomnia to chronic back pain to infertility, as well as a non-invasive, visually effective option for supporting graceful aging and wrinkle reduction.
Additionally, Dr. Kali has completed her Masters in Nutrition in order to have the most comprehensive knowledge of the science of "food as medicine," as well as special certifications in Facial Rejuvenation and Aesthetics and LED (Light Emitting Diode) Therapy. Dr. Kali utilizes professional-grade LED light therapy both in Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture treatments to support improvements in general skin health, as well as to support improved mood, a benefit of red and infrared light supported by growing research.
