As a licensed naturopathic doctor, Dr. Kalstein practice within the context of Naturopathic Principles. She chooses therapies based on the patient's interest and values, as well the Naturopathic Therapeutic Order, which focuses on choosing therapies which cause the least harm before moving up the ladder to higher force interventions like drugs and surgery.
She approaches psychedelic work from a trauma-informed and harm reduction viewpoint, greatly informed by her own experiences over 20 years, as well as academic training from CIIS and MAPS.
