Happy Spring everyone! As I am writing this there is snow on the ground but it is Calgary.

My name is Dr. Michelle Hagel I am a Naturopathic Doctor, this is my fourth year with Docere Wellness. I am so happy to be apart of the team. My clinic focus is mental health, digestion, allergies and hormone balance. I have a wide scope of practice I utilize herbs, supplements, homeopathics, acupuncture, and most importantly diet and lifestyle recommendations.

Some of the treatments I use in clinic include injections therapies (check out our shot bar selection), mesotherapy, NAET (Nambudipad Allergy Elimination Technique) and acupuncture.

Every person’s health journey is different and they will respond differently to recommendations. During our visits, we will determine what the best course of treatment for that individual will be. Naturopathic Medicine is about finding the root cause of the concerns/symptoms then resolving that root cause. Another big focus is in my practice is on prevention, if we can change things in our diet or lifestyle to prevent illness from occurring or progressing, fantastic!

I love being apart of an individual’s journey to optimal health, I am very passionate about it and every day is exciting.


Dr. Michelle Testimonials

Thyroid Back to NORMAL!

Dr. Hagel is absolutely amazing!  I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism earlier this year and I wanted to avoid going on Synthroid. I opted for naturopathic treatment and after going to a few other naturopaths and seeing no improvement in my thyroid levels I was about to give up, but decided to try naturopathy one last time and came in to see Dr. Hagel.  Dr. Hagel started NAET treatments with me and put me on some naturopathic medicine and about 1.5-2 months later I got my blood work done and my thyroid is back to normal!  I cannot thank Dr. Hagel enough for the support, encouragement and faith that she had. She was always open to listening to my concerns and never pushed anything.  Dr. Hagel and her staff were very accommodating and professional.  I would definitely recommend her to anyone that is struggling with their health and wants to take a natural path to recovery.



“Dr Hagel is a very talented Doctor who has knowledge, experience, and extensive research to help her patients find what is wrong and how to fix it. I have been going to doctors for so many years with the same problems and nobody has helped me the way she did. She listens, gives her time, encourages email updates, asks questions, very kind and considerate of my feelings unlike other past doctors I have been to. She helped me find the root cause of my problem and assisted me to an effective plan that has removed everything I was going through for 14 years! She also has solutions to manage PTSD through acupuncture.”


Got My Life Back!

“Dr. Hagel is a very attentive and considerate doctor. I had been to countless specialists for debilitating digestive issues. Once serious illnesses were ruled out the specialists lost interest in helping me–regardless of the disruption these issues were causing in my life. Dr. Hagel never lost interest in me as a patient, and her continued efforts helped me get my life back. She patiently listened to every detail and remembered everything I had said. I always felt heard, and I was never rushed in any of our appointments. She was always ready with additional recommendations if I found any treatments ineffective. She never left me feeling hopeless, as many of the doctors before her had. I am forever grateful for her help.”
