About Dr. Kirsten

Dr. Kirsten Smith, ND, is an expert in

women’s health and hormones. 


She closes the gap between the most current medical diagnostics, research and naturopathic medicine, merging the best of both paradigms and delivering optimal integrative medical care.

Dr. Smith began her focus on women’s health when she graduated in 2008. For a decade, Dr. Smith worked with an experienced medical doctor who specializes in women’s health and more specifically hormonal and thyroid health. Together they offered full spectrum care, merging the naturopathic and conventional medical approaches. This provided a medical residency-like experience that significantly contributed to Kirsten’s breadth and depth of knowledge making her a leader in her area of expertise in the naturopathic medical community. She is a skilled diagnostician and clinician. 

Dr. Smith is committed to a high standard of care with an evidence-based approach and works collaboratively with MDs, specialists, and various medical practitioners.

Dr. Smith received an honours degree in communications at Queen’s University and later, took pre-medical science courses and completed the 4-year full-time program at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, one of six accredited naturopathic medical schools in North America. Subsequently, she has completed advanced medical studies in various areas but focuses on hormone health, infertility, oncology, gastrointestinal disorders, anti-aging and environmental and functional medicine.

Dr. Smith continues to strive for excellence by taking ongoing medical education courses and attaining advanced clinical training in Canada, the United States, Germany, India and Costa Rica. This year (2023) Dr. Smith will sit the board exam to become a North American Menopause Society (NAMS) Certified Practitioner (NCMP).

“There is something deeply personal and yet universal about witnessing the vital force of the human spirit, which plays a pivotal role in healing. I am priviledged to see this often. To see my patients decide that they are worth it, decide to rally, and decide to make empowering choices – there is nothing more inspirational than that.”

Dr. Smith has a wealth of life experiences because prior to becoming an ND, Dr. Smith worked for many years as a producer in television, radio and documentary film in current affairs and related programming. She worked, volunteered and lived all over the world from Bangladesh to the Amazon to Antarctica, and learned about the formidable power of various ancient medicines which inspired her to investigate naturopathic medicine and completely change her life.

Between balancing being a parent and managing a business and while walking the talk and putting the time and work into staying healthy and having crossed through peri/menopause herself, Dr. Smith has a deep understanding of how to help move you forward  – this being the art of practicing medicine.

Kirsten is often a guest speaker on podcasts, at conferences, in programs and at events teaching about women’s health, hormones, perimenopause and menopause medicine, committed to bringing it all into the modern era. Women deserve a lot more research and care than they are currently getting, and it is her commitment to be a part of the change.

Kirsten is a mother to a beautiful boy and they dedicate a lot of time to adventuring, travelling, surfing, skiing and playing outside with their pup Birdy.
