Dr. Melissa Fougere has been in practice since 2013 and has seen well over 3000 patients. She relocated from Kelowna to Kimberley, BC where she has a clinic that she owns and runs, Flow Integrative Health. Dr Mel was recruited by Dr Denoon to practice at Wild Heart Therapies and Farmacy weekly offering a range of therapeutics our other doctors don’t. Dr. Mel has a double major in psychology and chemistry, and a masters degree in medical neuroscience. She holds an active prescribing licence and can both prescribe and manage pharmaceutical prescriptions in BC.
Dr Mel focuses on functional genomics or epigenetics—the science of understanding how your genes are expressed and how you can use supplements, diet, and lifestyle to shape your genetic destiny. She believes when you know what your blueprint is, you know what you are susceptible to and what your genes need, and therefore you have the opportunity to optimize your health through a precise approach that often saves time and money.
She is the only doctor in the clinic that does oncology care, orthomolecular nutrition, and manages SIBO gut protocols. She also runs our IV suite where she focuses on administering vitamins and minerals via intravenous drip or pushes. IV therapy bypasses the gut, therefore providing potent and effective doses of nutrients right to the bloodstream where you need them most. This is an effective way to see results quickly and is of benefit for mood, energy, immunity, detoxification, fertility and more.
Dr. Mel has years of experience providing and managing bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for fertility, perimenopause and menopause. She has a knack for working with women to regain hormonal balance safely and help them achieve their goals of pregnancy, better moods, easier periods or simply a hot flash free, good night’s sleep!
She is a quick thinker, evidence informed, data driven and provides a direct, concise approach to getting the job done through diagnostics and effective treatment plans. Many patients turn to Dr. Mel for a cut to the chase, get it done approach that ends up turning into a lifetime relationship of unparalleled care.
Neat fact: Mel has recently taught herself to play guitar and has an unbelievable singing voice.
