What is complementary and alternative medicine (CAM)?
Complementary practices are often relaxation-based, to support self/natural healing abilities, are used in conjunction with conventional health, and are generally paid out of pocket, although most insurance plans do cover counselling. Some examples of complementary wellness practices include aromatherapy, coaching, counselling, energy work, and nutrition.
Alternative medicine refers to treatment-based practices that are sometimes used in place of conventional health treatments. Several of these practices are covered under extended health benefits and may include treatments such as acupuncture, chiropractic care, and naturopathic care.
Wellness may include both CAM and conventional health, and the combination approach is also known as integrative health/medicine.
Please consult with your primary care physician before undertaking any CAM options.
Helthe Connect is user friendly.

Tu Van Trieu
Tu Van Trieu is the Founder and CEO of Helthe Connect. She is a passionate advocate for self-empowerment and personal growth.
Tu holds a Masters of Science in Conflict Resolution from Portland State University, a diploma in Professional Counselling, and 200 hours of yoga teacher training from Karma Teachers in Vancouver. She has comprehensive experience in counselling, stress management, and program development, implementation, and management.
Tu suffered from severe burnout fifteen years ago doing what she loved. Four years ago, she developed thyroid issues and learned that chronic stress can lead to chronic illness. Her healing journey has led her to believe and understand that chronic illness is preventable. Over the years she has experienced the benefits of many diverse complementary and alternative health modalities including and not limited to: tai chi, therapeutic touch, guided meditation, reiki, TCM, homeopathy, coaching, Shamanic medicine and healing journey, and reflexology. Today, her thyroid function is back within the normal range and she can enjoy hiking again.
The idea of Helthe Connect came as an inspiration from Tu’s understanding of the challenges of being both a wellness provider and an alternative/complementary medicine client.
