About Dr. Claire Lockridge, ND

Watching patients achieve their health goals and enjoy the vitality of life is the most rewarding part of my work as a Toronto naturopathic doctor. The unique blend of modern evidence-based practices alongside the traditional knowledge of health allows naturopathic medicine to have a profound impact on one’s health and wellness.

Prior to starting my practice at Annex Naturopathic, I completed a 2-year mentorship under Dr. Tanya Lee ND focusing on the management of autoimmune conditions and cardio-metabolic health concerns.

Health is a result of healthy living. A simple statement that means so much. Growing up I always knew that I wanted to support people in their health journey. Through my own health journey I discovered naturopathic medicine and the profound impact that its practices offered. Now I am so grateful that I can share the healing power of nature that naturopathic medicine provides with others.

Wellness flourishes when it is supported by sustainable lifestyle practices that include proper nutrition, daily movement, restful sleep, stress management and the enjoyment that our social connections provide. As a naturopathic doctor I enjoy supporting my patients as they take control of their health through these daily practices.

The mind and body are symbiotic, so when assessing a patient’s current health, it is equally important to assess emotional, mental, and physical health. In addition to these important factors the information provided by routine blood work, and other “as needed” diagnostic tests, will provide an accurate picture of current health. A comprehensive assessment of one’s unique needs is the foundation of an effective treatment plan.

Special Interests

Although I treat a broad range of health concerns, I have a special interest in digestive concerns, metabolic health, auto immune conditions, fatigue and family medicine.

A healthy digestive system is critical for overall health. The digestive system is responsible for breaking down food, absorbing nutrients and eliminating waste from the body. The gut also houses a large portion of the immune system, meaning an unhealthy gut microbiome can contribute to low immune function, increased inflammation, or autoimmune conditions.

Because the functions of our bodies are deeply interwoven it is common for individuals to present with one or more of these concerns, generally due to gut, hormonal or immune dysfunction. A focus on restoring overall health assists the body back into alignment and helps to address many of these concerns.

Nutrition is one of the 3 pillars of health (alongside physical activity and rest) and I believe that maintaining a healthy diet can be a joyous experience. My personal love of cooking and sharing that love with my patients with things like personalized meal plans helps build their confidence in the kitchen and gets them excited about cooking healthy food and trying new recipes.

Education and Professional Affiliations

As an undergraduate I attended the University of Arizona (UA) on a swim scholarship and competed as a division 1 NCAA athlete. While at UA I studied psychology and graduated with a Bachelor of Science undergraduate degree with a minor in Nutrition.

Following my undergraduate degree at Arizona I returned to my hometown of Toronto to attend a 4-year program at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, where I received a degree in Naturopathic Medicine.

I am a registered Naturopathic Doctor with the College of Naturopaths of Ontario. I am also a member of the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors and the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors.
