Dr. Alex Keller, ND, AFMCP is a graduate of the University of Ottawa with an Honours Bachelor in Health Sciences and Psychology. Although originally intending to attend conventional medical school, following a three-month volunteer internship at a rural Kenyan hospital where he observed how doctors used local food to treat patients, he shifted his career goals and pursued a degree in naturopathic medicine at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto.

After one year of practicing with the esteemed Dr. Chris Pickrell, ND, RH in a community acupuncture setting, in 2015 he and his wife Dr. Jenn Keller, ND moved to rural Ottawa where they started an organic farm and retreat center. In the same year, Alex and his sister Jess Keller combined their practices to form Keller Active Health in Ottawa, which they operated successfully for seven years until the COVID-19 pandemic forced its closure. In 2022, he joined Manotick Integrative Health and currently consults with patients virtually across Ontario. 

He is a member in good standing of:

  • College of Naturopaths of Ontario

  • Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors

  • Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors

  • International Society of Sports Nutrition

  • Institute for Functional Medicine

Ever curious and passionate about the education of evidence-based natural medicine, in 2017, Dr. Keller joined an Ottawa-based health tech startup named Fullscript, where he serves as Medical Director and oversees the development of medical education content for practitioners across North America.

 

As a former provincial-level athlete in rugby and competitive-level athlete in football, hockey, and soccer, Alex has a deep respect for the influence athletics and movement can have on a person's overall health. Today, having traded his cleats for running shoes, he competes in ultra-marathon trail races and half/full marathon road races. 

In his spare time, he and Jenn chase around their children and tend to the everyday duties that come with operating a farm. 

His clinical passion is to work with like-minded people seeking a proactive and preventive approach to health resilience.
