Krista Mackay, BSc ND, graduated from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in 2009, one of the few CNME accredited schools in North America.
With a general family practice, she focuses on stress management, digestive health, hormonal imbalance and skin issues. Her goal is to find balance, treat the root cause and support healing in a gentle and effective way. Working with each individual, she uses a combination of whole-foods eating, botanical medicine, mind-body connection and Bowen Therapy.
Krista’s educational and experiential background is varied. Interested in people and places she began studies in Human Geography and Anthropology at Concordia University. Growing up playing sports to the University level, and understanding the therapeutic benefits of exercise, supported her completion of a BSc in Clinical Exercise Physiology, a specialized branch of Kinesiology. She worked for a few years providing therapeutic exercise for people with various diseases and disabilities including: cardiac rehabilitation, fibromyalgia, wheel-chair basketball, and working with the elderly population.
Travel has been an integral part of her life. Fascinated by ancient healing techniques, she spent 4 months traveling around India during her undergrad. As her 4th year practicum in Naturopathic Medicine she went to Kenya to work in rural and mobile clinics with four classmates. They used natural medicines to treat patients with various tropical diseases including HIV/AIDS, syphilis, respiratory ailments and many digestive infections. She later spent time in Bolivia volunteering with a medical doctor in a teaching clinic, traveled to the Brazilian Amazon and has spent the past 10 years between Montreal and Montevideo, Uruguay.
