Children’s Health
Cell Health and Detoxification
Mental Health and Digestion
Pre and Post Pregnancy Support

Philosophy:

It is my job as a Parent, Doctor, Employer, and Teacher to strive to be the best version of myself in physical, mental, and emotional health. It is through this knowing that I can better serve the world through each patient I inspire.

Dr Sonya Jensen is a Mom of 2 boys, a business owner, a yoga teacher, a workshop leader and a Women’s Health Expert. After years of working closely with Women and their families her mission and purpose has become clear,  to Inspire Women so they can live free and balanced lives.


She’s a graduate of British Columbia’s Simon Fraser University where she received a degree in Cell and Molecular Biology. Pulled in the direction of helping others since the age of 5, Dr. Sonya pursued Naturopathic Medicine after University to explore the body’s healing potential and learn how to share it with patients.

 

Her work with Women has taken her to places like Haiti where she assisted a group of Naturopathic doctor students with an organization called Mama Baby Haiti to provide maternal and pediatric health care at a birth centre in Mourne Rouge. This experience solidified for her that her passion lies in working with women and their families. She now runs monthly workshops for Women to support them in all aspects of life.

 

In 2009, Dr. Sonya and her husband Dr. Nicholas Jensen opened Divine Elements Naturopathic Family Wellness in the Kitsilano neighborhood of Vancouver, British Columbia where they help clients create lasting changes in their overall health and well-being for the entire family.

Philosophy:

Whether aware of it or not, our bodies are constantly guiding us towards health. The symptoms we feel are a road map to understand the relationship we have with our lifestyle habits, our stressors, with the food we eat and our environment. It’s up to us as individuals to be proactive and listen to these signals so that we can create change before illness sets in.

Dr Nick grew up in the small town of Osoyoos B.C and completed his undergraduate degree in Biology at Okanagan University College, now known as UBC Okanagan. He went on to attend Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine, graduating in 2007 as a licensed Doctor of Naturopathic medicine. Following graduation his desire to deepen his understanding of other healing modalities took him to South East Asia and India with his now wife and business partner Dr. Sonya Jensen.

 

They Opened Divine Elements in 2009 and in 2012 implemented the Truebalance-Bioidentical Hormone Replacement therapy program under the mentorship of Dr Ron Brown OBGYN which has successfully treated thousands of patients. The addition of this powerful and effective treatment into the clinic, along with the strong foundation in the holistic approach of Naturopathic medicine, gives Dr. Nick many ways to work with his patients in helping them achieve a life filled with balance and vitality.​

Philosophy:

The human body has the incredible ability to heal itself when given the right tools. Dr. Pam is focused on living a balanced and preventative lifestyle and supports her patients in doing the same.

Dr. Pam completed her Bachelor’s degree from Thompson River University in Biology and Psychology with the goal of becoming a Naturopathic Physician in mind. She then completed the four year intensive naturopathic medical program at Boucher Institute for Naturopathic Medicine in New Westminster, BC.

 

She has a strong passion for working with families which has been strengthened through many experiences treating underserved populations in both Canada and abroad in countries such as Europe, Central America, and India.  Here, she was required to truly examine the root cause of many diseases and patient concerns using minimal resources. This helped her to understand the value and power of treating the cause using first line naturopathic treatments and how far compassion and empathy go to assisting people with their journey back to health.

 

Dr. Pam uses a variety of modalities in her family medical practice including: clinical nutrition, acupuncture, IV therapy, and aesthetic procedures (meso-therapy). She also has pursued extra training in naturopathic pediatric & obstetrical care, trained as a naturopathic doula, and has her pharmaceutical prescriptive authority. Dr. Pam is focused on living a balanced and preventative lifestyle and supports her patients in doing the same.

Gut Health and Brain Health

Neurodegenerative Diseases

Autoimmune Conditions

Stress and Your Mental Health

Womens Health

Philosophy:

The body has a powerful story to tell. There is no magic pill, health is about looking at the whole individual. When a lot of things seem to be going wrong in the body, often we have to go back to the basics to build a strong foundation for wellness. It’s not always about what we put into or take out of the body, that determines health or illness, but often it lies in getting the body ready to receive.

Dr. Natalie is deeply committed to helping you reclaim your health and the health of your family. She found her calling to work in a helping and healing capacity at the age of 14, while working with individuals with special needs. After completing a BSc in Biochemistry, and for close to a decade thereafter, she worked in special education and mental health programs, as well as volunteered in India and Haiti. More recently she has worked with aboriginal communities in Northern BC and volunteers at the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre in Vancouver.

 

Dr. Natalie graduated as a licensed Naturopathic Doctor in 2013, from the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in BC. She has in-depth training through the Medical Academy for Pediatric Special Needs, and has a strong focus on biomedical treatment for children with complex pediatric conditions, such as autism spectrum disorder and other neurodevelopmental disorders.

 

In her general practice she focuses a great deal on the connection between the gut and the brain, as well as the mind, the spirit and the body. She is committed to community health and to working with families to find the root causes of illness, providing individualized care. Visit her website at www.drnatalierahr.com.
