Why Naturopathic Medicine?
Dr. Keen is passionate about naturopathic medicine because it is a multi-faceted science-based discipline that addresses the root cause of illness and stimulates the body’s innate healing response.
“It [naturopathic medicine] is amazing. It is getting to the root cause. The thing I love about naturopathic medicine is it’s almost like you’re being a health detective.” – Dr. Keen
It’s no surprise why Dr. Keen is so passionate about naturopathic medicine. From childhood into her adult life, she battled her own health issues, struggling with food allergies and stress-induced eczema. She experienced first-hand how addressing the root cause as an alternative to masking symptoms can alleviate symptoms and promote lifelong wellness.
What else does Dr. Keen love about naturopathic medicine? She enjoys inspiring and educating her clients on how to live better, more fulfilled lives! She is their cheerleader, teaching them how to exercise disease prevention with whole-body care and a healthy lifestyle.
Dr. Keen is a compassionate, heart-focused provider who believes that the doctor-client relationship must be based on trust and confidence.
“I think it’s one of the most important relationships to have, because you’re trusting someone with your health and things that other people might not know about you.” – Dr. Keen
Dr. Keen also values open-mindedness, a trait she feels is missing from the current field of medicine. She believes there isn’t just one solution to a problem, but numerous ways to solve it.
Thinking outside of the box is an important trait for Dr. Keen. To this end, she customizes protocols for her clients, taking advantage of multiple holistic modalities to get to the root cause of their symptoms.
Dr. Keen loves watching her clients progress! Many have been dealing with chronic symptoms for years—seeing multiple doctors without improving—so they come to her disillusioned and frustrated. Seeing her clients re-energized and hopeful for the future is extremely rewarding.
Dr. Keen is an accomplished doctor with many years of schooling, training and experience, but if you ask her what she is most proud of, she would say: Making people feel better!

Getting Personal with Dr. Keen
Dr. Keen was born and raised in Calgary (her parents still live in the same house she was born in!), but she eventually left town to go to school and also lived in Japan for a while. After years of being away from her hometown, she decided to return for good in 2010.
In her free time, Dr. Keen can be seen outdoors, enjoying nature and its beauty, spending time in the mountains and staying active. Hiking is one of her favourite hobbies as is yoga, two activities she does regularly for fun and relaxation.
Dr. Keen lives with her boyfriend Ray, his two kids and the fifth member of their family, Touka. The duo fell in love with their 90-pound dog Touka after spotting her at the Cochrane Humane Society this past January. Touka was adopted on the spot—and the rest is history.
Dr. Keen also loves to travel. Her most memorable trip was when she and her boyfriend visited Sayulita, Mexico to attend a yoga/meditation retreat. Her time there was magical. They slept in the jungle with the ocean as their backdrop, woke up every day to a yoga/meditation practice and ate delicious food in the beautiful sun. She loved sharing that experience with her boyfriend and greatly enjoyed the rest and relaxation.
Dr. Keen’s favourite food? Broccoli! From the colour to the taste, raw or cooked, she is quite fond of this superpower veggie.
