Following my internship I worked as a clinical dietitian at Vancouver General Hospital in a variety of different areas including general surgery, neurosurgery/neurology, acute medicine, sub-acute geriatrics, long-term care, diabetes and renal dialysis.During my training and work as a clinical dietitian I saw first hand both the positive and negative aspects of the conventional medical system. While recognizing that conventional medicine was well suited to resolving critical situations. I use a wide range of therapies in my practice and enjoy the challenge of individualizing my recommendations to meet the needs and priorities of my patients. I have been teaching nutrition courses at BINM since 2007 and have been their nutrition department chair for the past 5 years.Web Site: Karina Wickland

Dr Sacha Elliott
I have always been interested in biology and the inner workings of the human body. At quite an early age I realized that the foods I ate played a major role in how I felt. I found meditation and deep breathing to be effective in tuning out my surroundings and helping me find an inner state of peace.
Once I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of British Columbia, my plan was to continue training in conventional medicine… until I traveled to Korea to teach English. It was during my twelve months spent in Asia, immersed in a culture where traditional herbal medicine and acupuncture are the primary medical model, that I started to change my tune.Upon returning to Canada, I met with a naturopathic doctor and began to understand the differences in philosophy between NDs and MDs. Because naturopathic physicians are able to spend longer periods of time with patients, delve into the root cause of their imbalance, and educate them on healthy choices, I was hooked! I appreciate life and the gift of health; it is my mission to inspire you to do the same.Wewb Site: Dr Sacha Elliott
