Naturopathic medicine offers patient-centered care based on you as an individual, using a holistic approach to provide solutions to your concerns using natural therapies.
As a naturopathic doctor, my role is to address the underlying cause of illness and to assist you along your health journey through health education, guidance and empowering you to reach your health potential.
Taking charge of your health is congruent with taking charge of your life and living well. My goal as a Naturopathic Doctor is to create individualized health plans that educate, inspire and motivate people to feeling and living their very best.
What makes Naturopathic Medicine so interesting and rewarding is its ability to merge new scientific research with traditional health practices and western diagnostic techniques with eastern health philosophy. This enables me to treat the full spectrum of health concerns using a diverse range of therapies. My specialized areas of focus include Women’s Health issues (irregular cycles, PCOS, thyroid concerns, menopause), Fertility (difficulty conceiving, poor sperm count/quality, IVF support), Stress management and Weight concerns.
Away from my clinical practice, you will always find me “living life to the fullest”—whether it’s playing soccer, tennis or hiking in the mountains. I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your life potential. – See more at: http://vivehealth.ca/dr-patti-yik/#sthash.RTQPccn3.dpuf
