Dr. Cristina Allen is a graduate of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, Canada's leading institution for naturopathic medicine.
As a Naturopathic Doctor, Cristina's goal is to provide her patients with a holistic and sustainable form of medicine. She determines the root cause of the complaint and treats to encourage long-term optimal health. Her four-pronged approach to healthcare is therefore simple:
1. Consider the individual as a whole
2. Empower through education
3. Apply the least invasive treatments possible
4. Promote prevention as key
Dr. Allen sees patients of all ages. Her passion is to educate and heighten patients’ self awareness so that they can build positive practices that fit their lifestyle and are life-lasting.
Treatments are a blend of the most modern, evidenced base medicine with traditional modalities, including diet and lifestyle modifications, herbal and nutritional medicines, intravenous therapy, and acupuncture. She has completed additional pharmaceutical prescribing certifications to prescribe bio-identical hormones and natural desiccated thyroid, specialty training in paediatrics and fertility, and is one of the few naturopathic doctors in Eastern Ontario licensed in Intravenous Therapy and Mesotherapy.
Dr. Allen provides workshops on seasonal and clean eating, and the impacts of stress on health.
Dr. Allen is an explorer, chef, and an artist in her free time. She enjoys traveling, getting off-grid, and participating in activities such as camping, open-fire cooking, cycling, swimming, snowboarding, surfing, and fishing. She has had several art shows in Toronto, played in various bands, and worked as a photographer.
Dr. Allen welcomes patients to a practice where a science-based approach is combined with a depth of experience, to ensure quality in both patient care and clinical results.
