Instructor: Katherine Oldfield, ND

Dr. Oldfield is a Washington state native who relocated to Nelson BC with her family in 2017. She owns Counter Cultured foods, a fermented food company soon to be based out of Salmo. She will also have a small medical practice in Salmo. She graduated from Bastyr University in 2000 and is still the medical director for West Seattle Natural Medicine, a multi-practitioner clinic in Seattle. 

As a naturopathic physician she feels that that she can truly help patients to improve their health by addressing underlying conditions that are stopping them from achieving their full health potential. With diet being so important to health, she loves to talk about food, digestion, nutrition and cooking. Dr. Oldfield specializes in women’s health, menopause, thyroid conditions, digestive disorders and allergies. She has belonged to a co-op since her university days and taught cooking classes for years at Seattle largest Co-op, PCC. She enjoys teaching classes on subjects such as balancing hormones and managing thyroid conditions, decreasing inflammation and eating with food intolerances. 

In her free time, Dr. Oldfield enjoys whole foods cooking, hiking, skiing at Whitewater, spending time with her family, reading, gardening and camping.
