OUR DOCTORS

Dr. Miranda WILEY, ND

About Dr. Wiley:  Dr. Miranda Wiley, ND, graduated with a BSc in Human Nutrition from the University of British Columbia. She later graduated from the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in British Columbia in 2009 and after graduating she spent a year as Clinical Resident at Boucher, then as that drew to a close in late 2010 she started a private practice in beautiful Tsawwassen, BC. 

Dr. Wiley now practices at Sina Pharmacy & Health Centre in Vancouver. She has been practicing naturopathic medicine for almost 10 years. Dr. Wiley seeks to identify and address the root causes of her patients’ physical, mental, and emotional health concerns.  She grew up in the arts but was always drawn to science and mathematics in school, and finds the blend of scientific knowledge with the creativity required to treat the unique needs of individual patients invaluable in her naturopathic medical practice.  Patients cannot be treated successfully with a cookie cutter approach, and yet the results of each patient’s treatment helps to clarify the benefits of specific therapies, diets, and interventions. 

Her primary areas of interest are digestive health (the root of all wellness!), mental health, pregnancy and children, the stress-sleep continuum and all of the hormonal imbalances that are at play there (adrenals, thyroid, pituitary, pancreas, pineal gland, and even liver), women’s health from PMS to menopause, and immune balance (allergies, auto-immune disorders, immune fortitude). In her practice, Dr. Wiley uses diet and lifestyle changes, supplements, herbs, prescriptions, acupuncture, Bowen therapy, NET (Neuro Emotional Technique), biotherapeutic drainage as needed to address health concerns in her patients. 

When not in practice she is a full-time, hands-on mum to her 6-year-old son (a former 26-week preemie and NICU alumni!) and 2-year-old daughter.  She spends time with her husband and kids exploring nature, making nutritious meals, and building forts in the living room.

Platelet Rich Fibrin (similar to Platelet Rich Plasma) is derived by taking the patients’ blood, spinning and isolating the plasma and fibrin which is rich in platelets. Platelets are blood cells known for their role in healing. Once platelets are delivered to the area being treated, they break down and release growth factors, which are compounds that help cells repair and renew.

PRF is the new PRP
We only use the best technology here at Sina Naturopathic Clinic, this is why we now use Platelet Rich Fibrin. It is derived in a similar fashion to PRP; however, it is spun at slower rate in the specific PRF centrifuge.

Get BETTER RESULTS
PRF actually contains 10x more platelets, more growth factors and nutrients than PRP. It is more concentrated and effective, which will give you better and faster results. This is achieved by sustained release of growth factors over 1 week instead of instantaneously.

The Liquid Gold
In addition to platelets, PRF also contains vitamins, nutrients, white blood cells, and growth factors. This restores skins elasticity, luster, improves collagen production, minimizes fine lines, wrinkles and scars, and adds fullness and youthful glow to the face. PRF is also useful for treating enlarged pores, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, and dark under eye circles.

PRF for HAIR
By the similar mechanism PRP helps with hair growth  restoration. Platelet Rich plasma supplies the scalp with vitamins, nutrients and growth factors necessary for new hair growth. Minimum 3 PRF hair treatments is recommended; however, some patients may see results after 1 or 2 treatments.

Micropen Elite
PRF Facial includes micro-needling with Medical grade MicroPen, which further increases collagen production and cell regeneration. Micro- needling is used to treatment of acne scars, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, and fine lines and wrinkles. Micro-needling can also be performed without PRF if desired and with Hyaluronic Acid instead.

You are sent home with a complimentary post- micro-needling skin care kit for best healing results.

Is the PRF procedure painful?
PRF injections are injected with a very thin 30-gauge needle. The MicroPen needles are 32 gauge (even smaller). With topical anaesthetic cream the pain is minimal and recovery time is short.

How many treatments are needed?
For best results, PRF treatment should be repeated 3-4 times initially with 4-6 week intervals. For maintenance going forward- 1-3 times per year to benefit from the anti-aging results it provides. The same timing interval goes for hair growth and restoration.

The intake form is required for your first initial appointment. A completed form can be emailed to nd@mysina.ca prior to the appointment date. 

Extended Health Plans

Did you know:  

A majority of Canadians have health benefits covering naturopathic medicine, although many don’t realize they have coverage, or how much. Coverage for naturopathic doctors (or NDs) is usually part of the Extended Health. 

Most insurance coverage is, commonly, between $300 and $500 in a calendar year; it will include visits to an ND and in many cases therapies and tests. Understanding how your insurance plan works is key to ensuring you get the most effective and timely treatment from your naturopathic doctor.

After your appointment, you will be provided with an official receipt from your ND which can be submitted to your insurance for reimbursement.
