Dr. Alea is a Naturopathic Physician and mother dedicated to optimal health and a balanced life. She believes that when our bodies are nourished from the inside out, we become empowered to live our best lives and are able to navigate through times of stress, upheaval and challenge.
Through in-depth consultation and carefully researched, practical and personalized treatment plans, Dr. Alea tackles the root cause of health concerns. She strives to complement treatment with practical tools that patients can use to integrate optimal health into their lives and experience the ultimate freedom this affords.
In her work to surface health and wellness solutions, Dr. Alea draws from a rich tapestry of experience, four years of medical school at Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine, a bachelors degree in Kinesiology from the University of Victoria, extensive clinical experience, fifteen years as a personal trainer, her own healing through naturopathic medicine and more recently – and most profoundly – as a mother.
During your initial 1-hour consultation, Dr. Alea will carefully evaluate your current health status, review your medical history, and perform a relevant physical exam. If you have had recent blood work completed, she encourages you to bring any reports to your appointment. A personalized plan will be devised to address the foundations for health, your unique concerns, and further testing will be ordered (if necessary). A follow up appointment will be recommended to review your progress and to maintain accountability in your path to healing.
An Island girl at heart, she commutes to her Vancouver office from her home on Bowen Island. Dr. Alea fuels her own fire by spending time in nature, hiking and trail running and chasing after her busy 1 ½ year old daughter. A true believer in the power of food as medicine she spends time experimenting with whole food recipes, developing her green thumb in her garden, and coming up with creative ways to get her daughter to eat veggies, which she may or may not throw on the floor.
Dr. Alea understands that making drastic health changes can be overwhelming. Successful health outcomes require trust and synergy with your health care practitioner. Therefore, she offers complimentary 15-minute “Meet & Greet” sessions, to see if you feel she would be a good fit. She looks forward to hearing your story and helping to shape the next chapter on your health journey.
