Kimberly Williford, MS,RD,LD,NMD is a native Texan, Licensed Naturopathic Doctor and Registered Dietitian. She has dedicated her entire career to studying and helping patients to heal and balance metabolic dysfunction to help chronically ill patients while optimizing vitality and performance.
She earned her undergraduate degree from The University of Texas at Austin. She earned her Master’s degree in Nutritional Science, Magna Cum Laude, from Texas Tech University and completed internship at Texas Tech Health Science Center in Lubbock, Texas. After graduate school her focus was on children born with metabolic disorders later becoming an intensive care dietitian. She also worked extensively with the geriatric population both in the hospital and extended care facilities.
As a desire to treat the cause of disease rather than symptoms she furthered her education by attending medical school at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, one of only four accredited, four-year naturopathic medical schools in the United States where she earned her Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine degree (NMD). She completed a two year general and functional medicine residence, which focused on metabolic testing in Atlanta, Georgia. She served as a consultant in functional test interpretation for Metametrix/Genova laboratories reviewing test results with doctors from all over the country.
She has completed Board Certification fellowship training in anti-aging and restorative medicine with the American Academy of Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Medicine. She studied environmental medicine with Dr. Bill Rea, founder of Environmental Health Center Dallas, and Dr. Walter Crinnion, an expert in environmental medicine for over thirty years.
An unexpected cancer diagnosis and surgical menopause led to an increased passion in understanding hormones and optimizing the immune function. This was a natural fit for completing Master Class training in the Metabolic Approach to Cancer with Dr. Nasha Winters ND, FABNO and author of The Metabolic Approach to Cancer.
Dr. Williford’s practice focuses on integrative functional wellness to help environmental toxicity, cancer support, metabolic dysfunction, hormone imbalance, longevity/optimal aging and chronic disease. Treatment is individual as each person is unique rather than being a protocol. Focus is on the person as a whole rather than a diagnosis. She has been working with patients, both in and out of the hospital for over 20 years to help them achieve optimal health.
