About Claire Lockridge

As a Clinical intern, my top priority is to support and empower my patients to reach their health and wellness goals. I believe in working alongside other health care providers to provide complementary care to my patients, and believe in a holistic approach to patient management.

Over the past three years at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, I have learned the importance of both accurate diagnosis and the implementation of evidence-based treatments. My treatment philosophy is centered around promoting optimal health through diet and lifestyle changes. In addition, I use herbs, supplements, and other naturopathic modalities to address specific health concerns. I believe in the importance of developing individualized treatment plans for each of my patients, to address their concerns and promote optimal health and wellbeing.

Special Interests

I have a particular interest in hormonal health, gut health, and overall health and wellness.

Hormonal Health:

I have an interest in female health and hormones. I am passionate about providing education to women about their hormonal and reproductive health. I aim to help women promote and maintain a healthy hormonal balance, support fertility, and promote a healthy transition into menopause.

Gut health:

I have come to appreciate the critical role of our gut health and the number of ways it can impact our digestion and overall health. There is an ever-growing pool of research that is showing more ways that out gut health plays a role in not only our digestion but also our overall health. New evidence is showing that there is a strong connection between gut health and hormonal regulation, cognitive function, immune system activation and many other systems in the body. I aim to help patients support their gut health through several modalities such as diet, lifestyle, probiotic supplementation, and mindful living.

Overall Health and Wellness:

Finally, I am committed to helping patients feel their best. It is no secret that over the past 100 years, the world has gone through several changes, some of which have negatively impacted our health. I want to help educate and empower my patients to make changes that will help them reach their optimal health and feel their best.

About Me / Education

I was raised in Toronto and have grown to love the city even more since moving back three years ago for school. I swam competitively in high school and swam for the University of Arizona while receiving my bachelor’s of science in psychology with a minor in nutrition. Sports and being part of a team has been a positive influence on my approach to life. After graduating from university, I moved back to Toronto to attend the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. I am now in my fourth and final year in the program and am enjoying the opportunity to work one-on-one with patients.
