At a young age, Dr. Jennifer Kaster, ND (Dr. Jenn) suffered from debilitating digestive issues. Her days were spent worrying if she’d be sick after eating and she planned her activities based on proximity to a washroom. This was her life for years.
Living with digestive upset is what led Dr. Jenn to Naturopathic Medicine and learning how to treat and heal her body.
Food sensitivities played a major role in her digestive issues and once she had a clear understanding of what foods she needed to avoid at that time, paired with the guidance of a health practitioner to help her incorporate healing supplements into her routine, her digestive issues resolved. And as an added bonus, all the foods that caused her so much pain and discomfort in the past are all back in her food routine now without any issues.
After hearing Dr. Kaster’s story I’m sure it comes as no surprise that after achieving her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Waterloo and graduating from The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine she has focused her Naturopathic work on helping people who suffer from digestive concerns. In her practice as a licensed Naturopathic Doctor in Ontario, she utilizes a number of different testing methods to uncover food sensitivities that can be a contributing factor.
You can learn about some of those approaches here in this short video.
