Portrait of Dr. Raj Jheeta

Dr. R. S. Jheeta, ND

Dr. Jheeta is an expert in preventative health care, wellness, and anti-aging. In his spare time he provides health care tips through appearances on Television and Radio, and articles in local newspapers.

✔ International Lecturer for the College of Physicians and Surgeons for British Columbia, regarding Naturopathic Medicine

✔ Appeared on numerous TV Talk shows

✔ Physician to Pro Athletes and TV personalities

✔ Expert in Preventative health

He holds a degree in naturopathic medicine from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon. He was an undergraduate in biology and botany at the University of British Columbia, from 1979 through 1983. Dr. Jheeta is a member of the College of Naturopathic Physicians of British Columbia, and a member of the British Columbia Naturopathic Association.

Dr. Jheeta began his journey almost 30 years ago. As a student at the University of British Columbia he was directing his energy towards becoming a Pharmacist. He soon understood the limitations of this traditional form of health care, and that the primary goal in allopathic medicine was to manage and treat the signs and symptoms of illness. Very rarely was the underlying cause of the disease process addressed. He also noticed that the existing health care system was very effective at treating sudden and acute health crises and that many health care issues were slow and insidious. After concluding that the traditional health care system was failing dismally in the adequate treatment of chronic health concerns, he soon became disillusioned.

In the early 1980’s preventative medicine was almost a lost art. Traditional medical philosophy had literally brainwashed the majority of people into becoming a “pill popping “society, and dependent on the system.

The very definition of the Doctor as the teacher, and the patient as a student had all but been erased! We were no longer responsible for our own health. Frustrated, Dr. Jheeta began to search for answers.

A notable influence at that time - Dr. Jheeta met a chiropractor and was intrigued with the underlying philosophy of chiropractic medicine. The idea of removing the obstructions in the path of health, and the body would heal itself was a revelation - simple yet profound! Further searching led Dr. Jheeta to discover the National college of Naturopathic Medicine. Over the next 4 years he would learn to use the natural medicines of the earth, and how to teach his patients to understand their bodies. The goal was to provide the body, mind and spirit the tools necessary to heal.

More recently Dr. Jheeta has been an international lecturer recognized by the College of Physician and Surgeons of Canada and the United States. He has given numerous lectures on the subjects of preventative medicine, (heart disease, cancer, arthritis) drug induced nutrient depletion, prescription drug and herbal medicine interactions, and anti-aging breakthroughs through nutraceutical medicines.

I have been in the CFL for nine years, all with the BC Lions. At age 33, I am a veteran in this league. For me to maintain top physical condition I have had to maintain a very disciplined nutritional regime. Dr. Jheeta and I have worked very closely together on this, including all diet, nutritional and supplemental needs. Leading by example isn't just one way to influence people, it's the only way!

It is such pure joy to be able to live without constant pain, to be able to bend my knees again, to go for long walks, to walk up and down stairs without support, to be able to wear my rings again, to wear high heels again, to do yoga poses I haven't done in years, and to have the energy & desire to do these things!! I want you to know that I am very grateful for all your help. I feel very lucky that my friend recommended me to you. Well, gotta go now, I'm on my way to the gym to workout!!!!!!

I am very pleased to recommend Dr. R. Jheeta. A long-standing ailment and conventional treatment had caused me months of enduring severe symptoms. After a recommendation, I sought help from Dr. Jheeta. He quickly discovered the limitations of the conventional treatment and suggested other complimentary treatments to help in my recovery and overall quality of life during recovery. I found him to be knowledgeable, supportive and clear in how he explained my ailment and treatment. His treatments significantly helped my recovery. The effects of my ailment and initial conventional treatment have greatly improved, as has my overall quality of life and outlook for my recovery. Thank you Dr. Jheeta.
