DR. ABBIE FOUST
Dr. Abbie Foust is an Integrative Pediatrician from Denver, Colorado, and has been in practice since 2015. She was raised by an OBGYN father and Certified Nurse Midwife mother, and grew up witnessing the capacity that integrating conventional and holistic medicine has to heal, connect and empower.
She attended Denver East High School, was a figure skater, and worked as a camp counselor for years. She graduated from Vanderbilt University, after which she worked for a non-profit abroad in Nicaragua, Ecuador and Kenya for 2 years. She chose to go into medicine because of the joy she found in helping children thrive. She received her medical degree from the University of Colorado School of Medicine, followed by a pediatric residency at Children’s Hospital Colorado. She completed an Integrative Medicine Fellowship through the Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine in 2018.
She has worked at an integrative pediatric practice in Denver for 8 years. She is a kids yoga instructor, has additional training in Integrative Mental Health, integrative pediatric nutrition, environmental health and pediatric mind-body medicine.
She is inspired by the art of medicine and places great value on the connection you build as provider and patient. Her style is warm, nurturing, playful, humorous, honest and open. She loves getting to know her patients and their families, supporting and empowering them to create wellness in their lives. Having witnessed advanced illness while living abroad and working in the medical setting, she has profound gratitude and appreciation for conventional medicine and its ability to treat.
Additionally, she had the honor of learning from traditional healers and medicine men. Centuries-old healing arts brought relief to the mind, body, and spirit. She recognizes that wellness is not just the absence of disease and places great importance on prevention and education. As an integrative pediatrician, she thinks big picture about a child and combines both conventional and holistic medicine to help support and encourage overall health and wellness.
She is a mom of three kids, a 5 year old and 2 year old twins, used to have more free time (!), but still loves hiking with her husband, going to yoga and more than ever, taking naps.

DR. MEGAN HAMMEL
Dr. Megan Hammel (Dr. Meg) is a registered Naturopathic Doctor in the state of Colorado and has devoted her practice wholly to the naturopathic care and treatment of children.
She is passionate about creating a meaningful relationship with her patients and community to meet the unique health needs of each child and family. Dr. Meg pursued naturopathic medicine because she aligned deeply with the belief that the body is capable in healing itself. Much of her work is removing barriers to this healing – mental, physical, and environmental – along with providing what is needed to heal. Pediatric mental health is a priority for Dr. Meg and so her approach is about addressing the child as a whole individual rather than their label or diagnosis.
Dr. Meg’s clinical background lies in family medicine and pediatric health.
Having graduated with honors from the National University of Natural Medicine in 2017, she has dedicated years of study to pediatrics. Her specialties include allergies, eczema, GI disorders, Autism, PANS/PANDAS, genetic disorders including Down Syndrome, ADHD, and pediatric depression/anxiety. She has trained under some of Denver and Portland’s leading pediatric naturopathic specialists.
Dr. Meg strives to empower individuals and families to utilize their body’s healing ability and make attainable and sustainable healthy choices for themselves, their children, and the world around them.
When not practicing naturopathic medicine, Dr. Meg travels the globe, tends to her garden, runs around with her wild toddler, cooks exotic foods, practices yoga, and dances whenever possible!
