It is her goal to provide treatments that address the problem causing the symptom(s) in your body.
Firstly, her practice has a focus in digestive health, women’s health/children’s health (perinatal/postnatal care, fertility, and hormones imbalances) and stress. In addition, she has a strong background in autoimmune diseases, weight loss, allergies and skin disorders.
Originally from St. Catharines, Ontario, Dr. Jennifer Hendry-Lynn ND graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Sciences with First Class Honours from Brock University. Throughout University she was an active member of the Med Plus Program, which is a four-year non-credit concurrent program for students with a passion for health care.
Furthermore, the program exposed her to a variety of careers in the healthcare and volunteer opportunities. Volunteering at the Niagara Children’s Centre (previously the Niagara Peninsula Children’s Centre) School, she worked in classrooms to help children with both communication and/or physical disabilities.
However, during her time in University she had some health issues that she could not seem to resolve with the medical system. Therefore, she ended up seeing a local Naturopathic Doctor to help find some answers to her digestion concerns. With her Naturopathic Doctor, they worked together to find the root cause of her discomfort. After that, she was on a new career path.
Becoming a Naturopathic Doctor…
