As a naturopathic family practitioner, Dr. Monawar Fahoum's interests and specialties include homeopathy, diet and nutrition, botanical medicine and physical medicine (bodywork, adjustments, etc). She views healing as a dynamic process, unique to each person, with different treatments appropriate for different patients. These philosophies allow Dr. Fahoum the flexibility to move between modalities in treating illnesses from the common cold to diabetes, hypertension and chronic disease as well as equipping patients for disease prevention and optimal well-being.

Dr. Fahoum began her study in medicine at the University of Washington where she received her B.S. in Cellular and Molecular Biology in 1999. She went on to study the science of natural medicine at Bastyr University, graduating in 2004 with a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine.

Dr. Fahoumís background in conventional medicine provided a solid foundation for her current work. To gain exposure to conventional medicine she worked as an intern in the hospital of Nazareth, Israel during her attendance at Bastyr University. After graduating from medical school, she continued her training at Aradia Women's Health Clinic, University of Washington Medical Center and with specialists in orthopedics, cardiology and pediatrics.

After exploring the world of research at the University of Washington, Dr. Fahoum realized that the key to a patient's health was not adequately addressed in the laboratory. She was fortunate to discover early on that the key is in educating and helping patients understand and apply changes to their lives that are appropriate to their unique constitution and life circumstances. She came to believe that all of our choices affect the basic foundations of health that shape each of our lives. Along with learning evidenced based, natural medicine at Bastyr, Dr Fahoum learned how to guide her patients in eating healthily, appropriate exercise, and improved family and social consciousness. Dr. Fahoum's time at Bastyr educated her on the Natural Medical Sciences, but also the value of conventional medicine.
