Monita Triplett 

Registered Acupuncturist
Holistic Nutritionist

I’m passionate about medicine that is natural, evidence-based & effective. Sessions with me are unique because I combine the healing methods I have learned to bring each patient personalized and comprehensive care. My goal is to treat the root cause of your health issues.

For decades I struggled with a long list of chronic health complaints and illness; hormonal issues, acne, digestive issues, anxiety, addictions and depression to name a few. After years of following the advice of doctors and realizing that conventional medicine does not get to the root cause and is only offering me pills and countless antibiotics, I decided to chose a different path that would transform my life.  It became clear to me that in order to fully heal I needed to learn how the human body works and how to take care and nourish my body.  So I made the decision to enroll in Chinese medicine and holistic nutrition school and that started my healing journey….

Where I believe disease comes from:​​

  • Pathogens & Stealth infections (lyme, Epstein Barr, Borrelia, H Pylori, parasites etc)

  • Environmental Chemicals/ Pesticides

  • Heavy metals (Lead, mercury, aluminum, cadmium etc) 

  • Mold and mycotoxin exposure

  • Emotional Trauma 

  • Malnutrition

 

All epigenetic changes come from these places. Once you figure out the root cause you take a whole new healing perspective. 

My goal as a practitioner is to enlighten and educate. 

Things you may not know about me:

  • I love to forage mushrooms, and other medicinals

  • I began my own business as a nutritionist and acupuncturist downtown Vancouver in 2011

  • I am an avid trampoline gymnast

  • I am originally from Kamloops, BC, where I attended Thompson Rivers University ( I had a major in Sociology and Minor in Anthropology).

  • I like to Skateboard 

  • I am learning to hunt

  • I grow hydroponic fruits and vegetables

  • I am a world traveller and have been to many places including India, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, Mexico, Costa Rica etc..

  • I am half East Indian

  • I will never get botox and embrace aging naturally.

  • I love to read research journals and listen to podcasts.

  • I am driven by curiosity and the pursuit of pleasure.

I would love to meet you and help you improve your quality of life.
