Born & raised in the Lower Mainland, Shabita went to the University of British Columbia to pursue a degree in pharmaceutical sciences & is a licensed pharmacist in BC. She recently completed her training at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine & is also now a licensed naturopathic physician.
As someone who has gone through her own health challenges including chronic pain & Ulcerative colitis, Shabita has seen first-hand that the balance between acute and supportive therapies is one of the keys to wellness. As such, she strives to bridge the gap between conventional & naturopathic medicine to not only treat but support her patient’s wellbeing.
She takes pride in becoming involved in her community & has served on the Board of Directors for United Ostomy Canada (UOC), written a number of articles for UOC, South Asian Woman, Natural Selections, a student run newsletter at Boucher, as well as naturopathic clinic websites including Vitalia Health & even weekly wellness tips for Country 107.1FM.
Dr. Teja hopes to have a practice that blends evidence based medicine & traditional naturopathic wisdom so that the patient receives the best care possible. She is passionate about facilitating her patient’s healing by getting to the root cause of their condition, & more importantly, walking beside them in their health journey. Knowing firsthand what it’s like to face a challenging health condition, Shabita will always be transparent with you & provide the motivation you need to continue to strive towards a life not only of health & wellness, but one of pure vitality.
