To keep her knowledge up to date, Dr. Yik regularly pursues Continuing Medical Education courses offered by Harvard Medical School. She has experience in hospital settings working with amputees and disabled children as well as children with special needs. Dr. Yik’s kindness, compassion and strive for excellence began at a young age--she earned the distinct honour of being valedictorian of her graduating class at Zion Heights Jr. High School. Dr. Yik is currently licensed and registered with the Board of Directors of Drugless Therapy (Naturopathy), the regulatory body for naturopathic medicine in Ontario, Canada. She is also a member of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors.
Dr. Yik treats a wide range of conditions including women's health concerns such as hormonal imbalances, polycystic ovarian syndrome, fertility issues, pregnancy and prenatal care, skin conditions, children's ailments, liver disorders, anxiety, chronic stress/adrenal fatigue, etc. She also provides integrative care for clients diagnosed with various types of cancer. She currently supervises the IMI Weight Loss 2.0 Program.
Using evidence-based natural medicines, Dr. Yik supports 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, heavy metal toxicity, salivary hormone testing, etc.) and traditional Chinese medicine diagnostics are all used for assessment. Treatment often includes a combination of nutraceuticals, herbal medicine, nutritional therapy, traditional Chinese medicine and counselling.
Well-known for her expertise and compassion, Dr. Yik is dedicated to helping her client achieve and maintain optimal health and wellness. She is fluent in English and Cantonese.
Besides maintaining a family practice, Dr. Yik offers her expertise through various print media (South China Morning Post, Hong Kong Parents’ Journal, AsiaSpa, etc.) as well as corporates/ institutions, including McKinsey & Co., Morgan Stanley, Nomura Group, Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong and Hong Kong International School. She has also appeared as a naturopathic medical expert on Bloomberg Television. You can follow her health blog at http://drardyceyik.com.
