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. Sonya Jensen

Dr. Sonya has always been interested in all aspects of the human body—how it heals, how it functions and most importantly how it can create. She’s a graduate of British Columbia’s Simon Fraser University where she received a degree in cell and molecular biology. Passionate about helping others, Dr. Sonya pursued naturopathic medicine to explore the body’s healing potential and learn how to share it with patients. Her travels through South East Asia and India also helped deepen her understanding of incorporating holistic approaches to healing.

Dr. Sonya has special interest in Women’s Health and Pediatrics, specifically fertility, pregnancy, post natal care and hormonal balance. In 2012 she traveled to Haiti as a mentor to 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.

Now a Mother of two, Dr. Sonya uses her own personal experiences to support others in their journey. Her mantra: A healthy mom helps make for a healthy family.

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.

Dr. Pamela Smith

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 has special interest in chronic skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis, digestive health, and weight loss. She uses a variety of modalities in her family medical practice including: acupuncture, herbal medicine, physical medicine, clinical nutrition, and IV 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.

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.
