“The groundwork for all happiness is good health.” – Leigh Hunt
Dr. Marwa Dabbagh, ND: About Me

I have been a registered and licensed Naturopathic Doctor in Ontario since 2014. I have completed my four year degree in biomedical sciences with a biology minor at the University of Waterloo before pursuing my four year degree of Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM). The foundation of my treatment plans addresses the root cause of disease by acknowledging the interdependence of the body, mind, and soul. I have a family health practice with special focus on woman’s health, weight management, digestive disorders, stress & anxiety, low energy, poor sleep, pain management, and infertility. I use an evidence-based approach in my practice along with clinical nutrition, diet & lifestyle counselling, botanical medicine, acupuncture and Asian medicine, and physical manipulation to help my patients reach their goals.


When I’m not busy helping my patients achieve their best health, I practice yoga and meditation and spend my time at the gym. I’m an avid nature, dance, food, and family lover. I lead an active lifestyle and love to share my healthy tips on diet and exercise through my social media outlets (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn).
