Dr. Christina Bjorndal

Naturopathic Doctor, Bestselling Author

Thank you for checking out my profile. I am a Naturopathic doctor that helps people move beyond the diagnostic label you may have been given (ie depression, anxiety, bulimia, disordered eating, bipolar disorders, ADD, etc) to mental wellness by using a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual approach. I have been in practice since 2005.

While I was doing my undergraduate degree at UBC in the late 1980s, I experienced debilitating depression and anxiety. I also had an eating disorder and was not coping with the stress I was under at that time. Like most people, I had not heard about Naturopathic medicine so I was treated with medications that were not effective. After taking the medication that was initially prescribed to alleviate depression, I swung into a psychotic manic episode and was diagnosed with bipolar disorder type 1.

In 1994, after surviving a suicide attempt (which left me in a coma, on dialysis waiting for a kidney transplant), I finally began the healing process after reading a book called “A Return to Love” by Marianne Williamson. Up until this point, I lived with shame and stigma and I had not accepted myself.
Let me guide you on the path to wellness so you can fulfill your potential and be free from the mental prison you may be living in.

In addition to my naturopathic medical training, I have studied aspects of Gestalt psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, Mindfulness & Compassionate inquiry.

Testimonials

Dr. Chris really understands mental struggles. She combines a deep sense of empathy with vast scientific knowledge to move beyond your current limits. From day one, I felt a deep sense of hope that I could follow her program and see great improvement. Months later, the tools are helping me thrive.”

Testimonials

"I always felt incomplete and inadequate after typical therapy sessions. There was always a thread of dependency built. But when I reviewed Dr. Chris’ course, I could sense the years of research and hard work Dr. Chris put into it. Such a course could not have been created by a person who has not personally experienced mental health challenges. This is the best investment one can make to take back control of one’s emotional and mental well-being. I am very grateful to Dr. Chris for designing this course which can impact so many lives.

Testimonials

I really want to thank you! I now have a freedom that I never thought I would experience. All the tension and negativity I had towards my extended family is all gone. I am free! There are no words for the freedom you have walked me through. Years of therapy to help me with my issues with my extended family and in just 7
weeks, you have given me a freedom I never thought possible. It really is the most amazing feeling on the planet. But it’s not just this
situation. I feel more free today than I ever have on a day-to-day basis. I feel hope that I really can kick mental illness in the ass. I just need to say THANK YOU! With much LOVE”
