Using evidence-based natural medicines, Dr. Yik facilitates optimal health by supporting the body’s ability to heal itself. Her goal is to address the cause of illness rather than to simply treat or suppress symptoms. Thorough medical history, physical examination, lab testing (routine blood tests, IgE/IgG food intolerance blood tests, salivary hormone testing, genetic testing, hair mineral analysis, heavy metal toxicity tests, etc.) and traditional Chinese medicine diagnostics are all used for assessment. Treatment often includes a combination of nutraceuticals, nutritional therapy, herbal medicine, traditional Chinese medicine and counselling.
