Dr. Leila Sahabi, ND
About – Who am I?
I grew up knowing that I wanted to be in health care; from a young age, I was fascinated with biology and learning how our body functions.
I chose naturopathic medicine after learning about this field when a close family member developed a condition for which specialists said there was no cure. Seeing my family explore options, my eyes were opened to a field of medicine offering alternative therapies for complicated health conditions, chronic illness or as a palliative medical treatment.
I became a Naturopathic Doctor (ND) ten years ago when I graduated from Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine. I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of British Columbia with a double major in biology and psychology.
I have completed a 4-level training program in Advanced Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy (BHRT) from WorldLink Medical Institute in Salt Lake City, Utah where I was trained by Dr. Neal Rouzier, the leading expert and educator in BHRT. I continue to attend courses several times a year in the United States to stay current with my training and learn the newest protocols in this field.
When I started practicing in 2009 was when my learning truly exploded. I’ve gained tremendous knowledge from working with seasoned colleagues, attending international conferences, completing advanced courses and exploring each case for all of my patients’ unique ailments.
With additional training in Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy, I have focused on women’s health for the past seven years and I’ve seen hundreds of women optimize their overall health. It has been a dream come true to be able to use my skills as a Naturopathic Doctor (ND) to enhance the health and quality of life for her patients.
