Dr. Kara Dionisio, B.Sc, M.Sc, ND, NCMP is a sparkly✨ evidence-based-naturopathic doctor in Owen Sound, Ontario.


With particular street cred in hormones, period problems, vaginal issues, menopause, and hormone therapy, she helps women understand their health through the menopause transition and beyond.


Dr. Kara Dionisio ND, received her undergraduate degree with honours in Nutrition and Nutraceutical Science from the University of Guelph, where she was awarded the Brian Walker Memorial Scholarship for highest academic achievement in nutritional sciences.


She graduated with distinction at the top of her program with a Master of Science in Human Nutrition and Metabolism from the University of Aberdeen and the renowned Rowett Research Institute in the beautiful Aberdeen, Scotland. Her Masters thesis researched the effects of omega-3 fatty acids on endothelial function.


In 2008, Kara completed another four years of graduate study at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto. She is excited to be asked to teach the menopause curriculum at CCNM, leading way for more informed and educated clinicians in menopause practice!


Dr. Kara is a leader in the field of menopause practice and regularly is invited to speak to Naturopathic Doctors across North America. She is a faculty member of the Confident Clinican, where she regularly lectures and leads a menopause fellowship program comprised of NDs from across North America.


She has been a NAMS certified Menopause practitioner, now known as a Menopause Society Certified Practitioner (MSCP) since 2020, one of the first Naturopathic Doctors with this designation, and the inspiration for many more after her. And holds Level 1 training in Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy.


Kara is registered in good standing with Therapeutics and Prescribing Authority through the College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO), and is an active member of the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (OAND), and the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND).
