Dr. Alex Keller is a practicing naturopathic doctor in Ottawa, Canada and the Medical Director at Fullscript. As Medical Director, he oversees the Integrative Medical Advisory team (IMAT) and the development of educational content for practitioners across North America.

He is a graduate of the University of Ottawa with an HBSc in Health Sciences and Psychology. Although originally planning to attend conventional medical school, Alex shifted direction and completed a degree in naturopathic medicine at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. The shift followed a three-month internship at a rural Kenyan hospital where he worked with doctors who used local food to successfully treat patients, after which he felt compelled to practice a nutrition-oriented system of medicine. Today, he blends an evidence-based functional approach to care with his experience as an organic farmer and a passion for anthropology to serve an expert in traditional and integrative medicine.
