DR. KATELYN STORY KALSTEIN, ND, M.SC.
Dr. Katelyn Story Kalstein is a Naturopathic Doctor and licensed acupuncturist specializing in integrative mental health, regenerative joint injections and a drug-free approach to chronic disease.
Growing up in Nashville, she was taught by her grandfather (the 13th child of 15) to use natural medicine at an early age. Always wanting to be a physician, she was disheartened to find that medical schools were less about healing and more about suppressing symptoms. She eventually found naturopathic medicine, and the rest is history.
Dr. Kalstein began her career as lead facilitator at 40 Years of Zen, Dave Asprey's (Bulletproof) intensive neurofeedback center in Seattle, before opening private practice in Los Angeles.
Her special interest in mindbody medicine and mental health led her to ketamine therapy - a new and powerful approach to treating depression and other mental health ailments. She is certified in Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) by the Ketamine Training Institute (under tutelage of Dr. Phil Wolfson, The Ketamine Papers).
With a B.S. in Sports Medicine, Dr. Kalstein greatly values the power of movement to treat virtually every health condition. She offers regenerative joint injections - prolotherapy, PRP, and exosomes ("stem cells") - to get her patients out of pain, naturally.
Dr. Kalstein has studied with both the Institute of Functional Medicine and the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. She belongs to the AANP, CANP, IFM, and NCCAOM. She lives in Studio City with her husband and dog, Reyna.
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.

"After years of seeing different pain management specialists and only achieving minimal, short-lived results, Dr. Kalstein has given me hope for a pain free life. Trigger point injections have worked better and lasted significantly longer than any chiropractic adjustment or other pain management modality I’ve tried. After one session I immediately noticed a drastic improvement not only in pain, but also range of motion and stabilization of my joints. Thanks to Dr. Kalstein’s expertise I’m back to being active with my friends again, without all of the pain flare ups.”
