Hello! I’m Dr. Kahlen Pihowich, ND and I’m excited to be a new addition to the team at True Potential. I grew up in Nipawin Saskatchewan, and moved to BC to attend the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine after attaining my Biology Degree at the UofS.
Everyone is an Individual
I believe that people are important, and that everyone is an individual. This sounds simple but it is often forgotten when someone is diagnosed with a condition. We are not defined by our diagnosis, we are defined by who we are; this is why I like to treat the person and the problems they are having, rather than just the condition they are diagnosed with.
Helping People is my Passion
I’ve worked clinical terms at HIV+ and Queer Community resource centers, as well as the Boucher Clinic: I’ve
helped people with their anxiety and fatigue; I’ve helped people with muscle weakness and balance after progression of disease such as diabetes; I’ve helped people discover for themselves why they cannot lose weight; and I’ve helped countless more with digestion, skin, even pre and post-surgical nutrition to aid in healing.
I’m passionate about physical medicine and nutrition, and love helping people gain or restore function and strength so that they may improve their overall life and happiness. I look foreword to meeting new patients!
