Kristy King, M.D.

I am a medical doctor with a special interest in integrative and lifestyle medicine. In my practice, my focus is on the whole person, uniting the best of conventional medicine with nutrition, movement, and other mind/body/spirit disciplines to support your unique balance and innate capacity to heal.

My academic career began at the University of British Columbia, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts with a focus on English Literature. I spent several years traveling and exploring my passion for theatre, and I also worked as a scuba diving and sailing instructor in the Caribbean. Following a profoundly healing experience, I was inspired to pursue studies in naturopathic medicine. My studies convinced me there was a need for an integrative approach to healthcare, bridging the best of conventional medicine with complementary, natural medical
modalities.

I completed my medical residency training at the University of Washington, where I was recognized for excellence in family medicine and scholarly activities in evidence-based medicine. I also completed a two-year fellowship in integrative medicine through the University of Arizona’s Centre for Integrative Medicine. I am currently completing a second fellowship in integrative psychiatry,

During medical school, I co-founded International Integrators, a collaborative, global community dedicated to the promotion of integrative health. As part of International Integrators, I design and facilitate wellness retreats and seminars, in-person and online. I have specialized training in plant-based nutrition and mindful movement, and I believe in a personalized, preventative approach to healthcare. I work with my patients to find the root cause of their symptoms and health concerns, engaging the healing power of community through group visits and collective experiences and promoting optimal health and well-being through connection with others.
