About Dr. Kaylee

Dr. Alton is a graduate of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, Canada's leading institution for naturopathic medicine and is a licensed naturopathic doctor registered with the College of Naturopathic Doctors of Ontario.

Dr. Alton graduated from the University of Toronto with honours in Physical Health & Education and went on to complete 2 years in stem-cell neuroscience research on stroke recovery and the plasticity of the brain, for the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto. In addition to this, Dr. Alton also took classes in neuro-patho-biology, understanding the genetics of the make up and breakdown of brain functions and diseases, and neuroendocrinology. Before she could accept her full scholarship for a PhD in regenerative medicine at the University of Bologna, Italy, she was introduced to naturopathic medicine and was hooked by the philosophy that naturopathic medicine promotes, “getting your body to work for you”. She then completed her degree from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine and has completed internships all over the world, in Germany, Haiti, Italy and different clinics within South-Eastern Ontario, including Women’s College Hospital. Dr. Kaylee has trained more intensely in neuroinflammatory disease, from traumatic brain injury, stroke and autoimmune conditions, which include a thorough understanding of the gut-brain connection and digestive disorders. She has also taken a position at the Rouge Valley Centenary Hospital, in a private-pay, outpatient clinic, treating post-stroke recovery, with the goal of getting stroke patients to recover their independence to be able to walk and talk freely again, and in most cases, return to work. Dr. Kaylee is intentional about building the field of naturopathic medicine with a focus on collaborative care with physicians and specialists, sharing charts and patient care, that includes naturopathic approaches. She believes everyone should have a family doctor and a naturopathic doctor.

Dr. Alton provides a thorough workup to understand what your unique biochemistry, hormone and nutrient needs are. She practices using a biomedical model, where patients are assessed and assigned appropriate labwork and dietary changes, lifestyle education, supplements of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, bioidentical hormones, herbal medicine, injections and clinical nutrition, according to their biochemistry deficiencies. Her focus is on hormone irregularities, IBS or SIBO, digestive disease, autoimmune disorders, diabetes, hypertension, thyroid, burnout, fatty liver, liver health, and in particular, has started a multi-disciplinary stroke recovery treatment program.

Dr. Alton’s goal is to give patients medical tools that are sustainable and don’t cause particular nutrient deficiencies or side effects. Her treatment plans always consider moving her patients towards long-term optimal health. Her principles are:

  1. Educate. When we know what or why something is happening, or how it is affected by our lifestyle choices, we are more motivated to stick to the hard-work of making new health habits.

  2. Apply the most effective treatment possible, with the least amount of side effects, while considering cost.

  3. Promote prevention. 

As long term stress often wrecks havoc on our bodies, she works to help patients manage stress while performing at a high level or to help them recover from burnout. 

Dr. Alton continues to operate a family practice downtown Toronto, in addition to her stroke recovery treatment program.

In 2016 Dr. Alton’s previous education in neuroscience, kinesiology and naturopathic medicine, came to the test, when her own father had a debilitating ischemic stroke. While working to support her family in dealing with the matter, Dr. Alton got a first hand experience to what the OHIP system and other agency services provide, for patients recovering from a stroke. It was clear that if the patient was determined and motivated to recover and return to work or complete function, there were no integrated health teams with open communication with other providers, and there were almost no options for care after the 6 month mark within the system. Dr. Alton then went on to research stroke treatments and apply them to her father, who has been able to return to work. In Dec 2018, Dr. Alton opened the first multi-disciplinary treatment program for stroke patients, in collaboration with the Hyperbaric Oxygen Medical Clinic in the Rouge Valley Hospital of East Scarborough. The goal of the program is to provide a case manager, health coach, to the patient, who will be able to provide support and accountability for the at-home portion of the program, that goes on to include an assessment and treatment by our anesthesiologists for hyperbaric oxygen therapy, physiatrist for physical therapy, speech language pathologist for speech therapy, and naturopathic doctor for nutrition and biochemical support to reduce neuroinflammation, improve cellular respiration, mitochondrial function, energy production, and cell-wall integrity, as well as, support neurotransmitters and hormones along the HPA-axis. This is a private pay program, completely independent of OHIP funding, and patients must meet the inclusion criteria.

Complimentary meet and greet appointments are available by clicking on the link below and filling out our “online booking” form.

If you or a loved one you know, are motivated to recover from a stroke and would like to learn more about the program, fill out the “online booking form” on our website and a member of our team will call you to book your complimentary meet and greet phone-call and then in-person appointment.

The program is an intensive 4-month commitment combining naturopathic medicine with hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). The program is intended for motivated stroke patients who wish to recover speech, swallowing, mood stability, walking, and find motor control; who have had a stroke within the last 6-36 months and who meet our inclusion criteria.


 
 

There is a sense in which no doctor ever heals. The doctors themselves would be the first to admit this. The magic is not in the medicine but in the patient’s body—in the vis medicatrix naturæ, the recuperative or self-corrective energy of Nature. What the treatment does is to stimulate Natural functions or to remove what hinders them. We speak for convenience of the doctor, or the dressing, healing a cut. But in another sense every cut heals itself: no cut can be healed in a corpse.
