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:

The intelligence of the cell begins and ends at the level of the membrane. It’s our communication network to the organelles within the cell and to the trillions of other neighbours living in this system. It’s becoming increasingly important to address cellular health because of the rise in chronic conditions associated with chronic inflammation. Instead of just targeting inflammation, we need to ask the question of why it’s there. Instead of treating the process of inflammation we need to learn to stop it before it starts.

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 over the years have had the opportunity to mentor under some industry leading experts in Hormone health and Detoxification. Dr Nick is constantly learning and is extremely passionate about teaching individuals to become the best version of themselves. Being a parent as well as a Doctor, he knows in order to teach it you have to live it and so both Dr Sonya and Dr Nick follow the philosophy of live it to lead it!

Philosophy:

Education plays a huge role in health, I believe that by learning the reason behind any recommendation or approach the outcome is most likely a success.

Nutrition has a huge impact in all areas of our life from having a good relationship with food to how we feel about ourselves, our mood, our energy levels and our overall health. In order to see shifts in our body we must consider the mind-body-spirit approach, working on all three aspects is fundamental for change to happen. Most people have no idea how good their body is designed to feel, by working on those 3 pillars we can change our physiology and therefore allow our body to heal.

Melissa was born and raised in Costa Rica where she got her bachelor degree in Nutrition and Dietetics. Her desire to learn more about holistic nutrition brought her to Canada where she graduated from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in Vancouver.

Since she was little she was always drawn to the kitchen and as she got older her interest for healthy cooking kept growing. She likes experimenting with recipes and showing people how to prepare healthy tasty meals while adapting them to their nutritional needs.

She´s passionate about learning as much as she can about nutrition and how the body works. She is currently studying Functional Medicine as part of her goal to get a better understanding of the intricacies of the human body, with a special interest in the mind-body-spirit connection.
