Dr. Mona Fahoum
As a naturopathic physician and owner of Meridian Medicine in Seattle, Dr. Mona Fahoum focuses on preventive primary care, women's health, hormones and digestive concerns. Whether you are in need of basic primary care, PMS support, menopausal issues, hypothyroid or IBS, she views healing as a dynamic process, unique to each person, with different treatments appropriate for different patients. This philosophy allows her the flexibility to move easily between conventional and natural treatments.
Dr. Fahoum – who everyone calls Dr. Mona - began her study in medicine at the University of Washington where she received her B.S. in Cellular and Molecular Biology. After exploring the world of research as an undergraduate at the University of Washington, Dr. Mona realized that the key to health is not adequately addressed in the laboratory. Rather, the key is to understand, and apply, those changes to your unique life circumstance.
Dr. Mona went on to study the science of natural medicine at Bastyr University, graduating in 2004 with a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine and has her certification in the advanced use of Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement (ABHRT). Outside her primary care practice, she is also the Director of Clinical Services at the Bastyr Center for Natural Health and has been adjunct faculty at Bastyr University.
Professionally, Dr. Mona is Past-President of her state organization, Washington Association of Naturopathic Physicians (WANP). She is a member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP) as well. She has provided lectures and continuing education seminars for these associations, other state associations and regularly appears on podcasts, webinars and interviews for women’s groups, hormone support influencers and others. She is on the medical team for Symphony Natural Health, makers of Femmenessence, where she consults extensively on women’s health and hormones.
Whatever free time is left gets filled with gardening, baking, playing soccer and snowboarding with her kids and husband.

Dr. Mona got me off Snickers Bars, Coke, and Diet Coke. Not by being dogmatic and insistent like every other natural and alternative health care practitioner I’ve ever known. She did it by meeting me where I am, giving me gentle guidance in how to think through my diet, and knowing that this is a lifelong process of improving my health. Thanks to Dr. Mona, at 44, I’m healthier, more energetic and more positive about living a vibrant long life than I ever imagined. - B.
Dr. Mona is intelligent, diligent, caring and sensitive–from my experience with doctors this is a rare combination. She has helped with find solutions for my constant anemia and most importantly we have found other solutions to aid my ulcerative colitis that is not prescription medicine. Currently, I take hardly any prescription drugs and I am living a healthy happy symptom-free life. I go to Dr. Mona for everything and she always finds an answer for me. She is more than a doctor–a confident and a friend and I recommend her to everyone. - A
First of all, I highly recommend Dr. Mona Fahoum as your Naturopathic Physician. She is thoughtful and caring and spent some quality time with me even though she was clearly having a stressful, jam-packed day at the office! She is kind and funny and spends MUCH more time with her patients than any M.D. you will ever find! Instead of the 15 minutes you get if you’re LUCKY with most physicians, Dr. Mona spent 45 with me, talking and listening before she ever did a physical exam! I am excited to have her as my new primary care physician. I highly recommend this clinic for all of your healthcare needs! The space is cozy, the practitioners are great, they really care about you and give the personal attention that patients should ALWAYS be receiving! - B.
