Hi! I'm Dr. Kimberley O'Brien
I treat a wide variety of health conditions but I have specific expertise in treating digestive disorders, fatigue and hormone imbalances. My approach is science based, and it’s by identifying the root cause of your symptoms that I am able to create a safe, targeted and effective natural treatment plan that enables you to feel your best as soon as possible. In addition to reviewing your health history in detail during your initial consultation, I often suggest laboratory testing and conduct physical assessments in order to pinpoint the underlying cause of your health concerns.
As a naturopathic doctor I have 8 years of post-secondary education, which have earned me my “Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine” from the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine and a “Bachelor of Science with Honours in Neuroscience” from the University of Alberta. I am also a "Bowen Health Therapist" and I have completed additional training to receive my pharmaceutical prescription rights within the province of British Columbia.
I'm passionate about inspiring and helping you to own your health and live a life you love! This passion led me to the create my blog, Healthy Life Redesign, through which I support you with naturopathic health information and delicious gluten and dairy-free recipes. I am also the creator of the Elimination Diet Meal Plan online program, through which I'm grateful to have helped hundreds of people worldwide to resolve chronic symptoms like headaches, bloating, fatigue, IBS and eczema by identifying their food sensitivities and refueling their bodies with deliciously nutritious meals.
A healthy body and mind provides us with the ability to live a passionate, adventurous life in which we are able to do and experience all of the things that we love. This is what drives me to maintain my own health practices and inspires me to help you to do the same.
Outside of my naturopathic practice you will find me experimenting with new recipe creations in my kitchen, hiking and exploring the great outdoors, gardening, travelling and taking in all of the beauty and adventures that the Kootenays have to offer!

What Patients Can Expect
Initial consultations are scheduled for 60 minutes and involve a comprehensive evaluation of your health history and current concerns. Laboratory testing may be recommended as part of your assessment, but is optional and not required. You will be provided with first-steps of your treatment plan during your initial consultation, which will be further expanded upon during your first follow up appointment.
Follow up visits are scheduled for 30-45 minutes, allowing time to explore treatment progress and address any questions or concerns. Both initial and follow-up consultations are scheduled via Zoom video-based telemedicine appointments, which conveniently allows you to work with me from the comfort of your own home.
Please refer to the frequently asked questions below for additional information. A doctor-patient relationship is a partnership and I welcome you to contact us to address any other questions that you may have or to schedule your initial visit.
