Dr. Janet Trieu
Dr. Janet Trieu obtained her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Alberta. After a number of years in the insurance industry, she proceeded to complete her 4-year doctorate program at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in Vancouver, BC.
Dr. Trieu is a mother of two and she is passionate about helping families restore and maintain optimal physical, mental and emotional health. Naturopathic medicine saved her from a life of numerous drugs for a few chronic conditions she had as her naturopathic doctor was able to see her as a whole person instead of as a list of symptoms. This experience changed how she approached health forever, and she feels honored to be able to help others regain a state of wellness. She firmly believes in the principles of naturopathic medicine, as she strives to treat the whole person in the least invasive way possible, believing in the healing power of nature and treating the root cause instead of simply palliating the symptoms.
She believes that every family deserves to have the skills, tools and knowledge to help treat a variety of ailments naturally and effectively. While in naturopathic medical school, Dr. Trieu had her two children. Becoming a mother is where she learned how important it was to have safe, natural alternatives for common ailments which help lay the foundation to optimal health for the rest of their lives. The body simply needs a bit of guidance to get back into a state of health, and that’s where naturopathic medicine can shine. Dr. Trieu’s goal is to help educate her community about natural medicine so that everyone can have the opportunity to feel empowered to reach the best version of themselves.
