Dr. Megan Wakeham, ND Dartmouth Clinic
Dr. Meg Wakeham, ND is a graduate from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto. Born just outside of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Meg discovered her passion for the complexity of the human body and her love for natural healing while attending MSVU to complete her Bachelor’s of Science in biology and nutrition. She continued to pursue this passion by attending CCNM to earn her Doctor of Naturopathy degree, including additional training in pediatrics through a year-long specialty shift in her clinical year.
Dr. Meg’s approach to healing emphasizes nourishing all aspects of wellbeing through individualized treatment plans that are collaborative, empowering, and compassionate. Her treatment modalities include nutrition and lifestyle counselling, acupuncture, botanical medicine, and physical medicine (ie cupping, fascial work). She provides care to people of all ages with a wide variety of concerns but has a special interest in women’s health, fertility, prenatal/postpartum care, and pediatrics.
Dr. Meg is also training to become an osteopathic manual practitioner (DOMP) through the Canadian College of Osteopathy. Osteopathy is a hands-on manual therapy that includes craniosacral, muscle energy, myofascial, joint mobilizations, and other soft tissue techniques to help individuals achieve optimal health. Both Naturopathic and Osteopathic medicine see the body as a functioning whole with an innate ability to heal itself when all components are in balance and supported. By combining her naturopathic and osteopathic training, Dr. Meg provides well-rounded, holistic care that considers many aspects of health that contributes to a patient’s overall wellbeing.
Dr. Meg is a member of the Saskatchewan Association of Naturopathic Doctors, the Nova Scotia Association of Naturopathic Doctors, and the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors. Outside of work, Meg enjoys spending time with her partner, appreciates nature through gardening and hiking, practices yoga, and loves cuddling up with a good book and her playful Portuguese Water dog, Juniper.
