bio

Alexina Mehta is inspired by her work each day and is passionate to serve the health and well-being of others. She encountered yoga and the spiritual traditions at a young age and is fascinated with the possibilities of human potential. Interestingly, Her great grandfather, R.B. Lal Singh Mehta was on a team who discovered the oldest written book ever found of earth so far, called the Diamond Sutras. The book teaches about enlightenment and compassion. These teachings are an important part of Dr. Mehta’s life.

Dr. Mehta has a thriving practice in Kitsilano, Vancouver with a focus on family medicine, women’s health, hormone imbalances, pediatrics, digestive health, weight loss, sports performance, mind-body awareness and chronic disease. She brings an inspirational, uplifting, refreshing and innovative approach to natural medicine.

She began her post-secondary education at Queens University where she studied Life Sciences and ran on the varsity cross country and track and field teams. She continued her undergraduate degree in Human Kinetics from the University of British Columbia, and became a fitness expert at a young age. As a varsity cross country runner, she cultivated an attitude of perseverance and resilience which now contributes to her ability to support others in their health. At a young age, she overcame a serious illness by teaching herself about healing, which required thinking outside of the box.

This led her to further pursue Naturopathic Medicine, as it offers many appealing options for patients. She gained her Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine from the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine. As an award-winning doctor, she has guided many to not just better health, but also peace of mind. In addition, she has done extensive studies in energy medicine in a wide variety of disciplines and currently mentors physicians and healthcare practitioners on how to be more holistic in their approach to medicine.

Dr. Mehta has been teaching and guiding events centered on inspirational Natural Medicine, women’s health and mind-body education regularly for the last 7 years. She is currently accepting new patients and welcomes you to her upcoming events. Be inspired by natural medicine from Dr. Mehta by signing up for her newsletter.
