Why Kandis Lock, N.D. and Naturopathic Medicine?
Kandis Lock, N.D. got her first taste of Naturopathic Medicine while studying traditional healing methods as an undergraduate at the University of Alberta. As an anthropology student she studied a variety of ancient healing practices from around the world. It was at the end of her undergrad that she realized that practicing these medicines, rather than studying them academically, was an inevitable course of action. These forms of medicine are her passion.
The primary goal of naturopathic treatment is to address the underlying cause of an illness rather than suppressing symptoms. It emphasizes prevention and treatment in order for the patient to realize optimal health. While holding firm to the belief that people naturally possess the power to self-heal, naturopathic doctors use a combination of modern, traditional, and scientific methods in guiding their patients towards better long-term health. As a doctor in the Central Ottawa area Somerset Health & Wellness Centre, Kandis Lock, N.D. offers a number of treatments that embrace the philosophy of naturopathic medicine, most notably Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Naturopathic Doctors work in partnership with other health care providers such as medical doctors, chiropractors, physiotherapists, osteopaths and massage therapists to provide you with the highest quality of health care possible.
How Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Fits into a Naturopathic Approach to Healthcare
Kandis Lock, N.D. of Ottawa Ontario Bioidentical Hormones Clinic, Somerset Health & Wellness Centre uses Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for several important reasons. First, the hormones are created from plants with an identical cellular structure as hormones in the human body. For most people, this means a low level of intervention without the risk of side effects.
Secondly, by identifying hormone imbalance as the root cause of your issues, Dr. Lock can help you eliminate similar problems in the future. Thirdly, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy encompasses the healing power of nature with the unaltered genetic structure of its ingredients and by enabling the body to find balance and regain optimal function.
Last but not least, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy fits into a naturopathic approach to healthcare because it allows doctors to treat you as a whole person. Naturopathic doctors such as Kandis Lock, N.D. consider your input as valuable as their own when creating an individualized Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy to correct your specific levels of hormone imbalance.
