Dr. Kali, ND
Dr. Kali is a board-certified Naturopathic physician offering a holistic, lifestyle-based preventative medicine approach to health, including a focus in functional medical testing. Rooted in research and utilizing the most gentle approach possible for each patient, services include health consultations and follow-ups, nutritional guidance, stress management, in-depth lab testing, cupping, and other Traditional Chinese Medicine services.
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 College of Naturopathic Medicine, one of only seven accredited medical programs for Naturopathic medicine in North America. She completed both the Biomedical Science Examination and Core Clinical Science Examinations of the NPLEX Licensing Board exams.
Although acupuncture treatments are already included under the Naturopathic scope of practice in Connecticut, Dr. Kali is also scheduled to finish her formal studies as a licensed acupuncturist (LAc) within the next year. 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.
Additionally, Dr. Kali is currently wrapping up her Masters in Nutrition, in order to have the most comprehensive knowledge of the science of "food as medicine.”
