Dr. Heidi Lescanec is a Naturopathic Doctor and passionate whole foods chef who brings her diverse culinary experience and knowledge of food as medicine into her clinical practice through culinary nutrition counseling in addition to primary care medicine. Her areas of focus are: digestion (IBS/SIBO, food sensitivities, dysbiosis, special diets) and hormone balance (adrenal fatigue, PMS, menopause transition, pre-conception care). She obtained her naturopathic medical degree in 2002 from NCNM in Portland, Oregon. In her practice in Kitsilano, Vancouver Dr. Lescanec utilizes the traditional naturopathic modalities: clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, diet and lifestyle counseling, as well as acupuncture and prescription medications like bioidentical hormones. She believes that an integration of these therapies as well as guidance on how to improve daily habits and choices serves most effectively to support patients on the path to optimal health.
