Karim realized his interest in Naturopathic Medicine after working with patients at a rehabilitation clinic as a Kinesiologist. His passion for providing the best possible healthcare drove him to complete the Naturopathic Medical program after he had attained an undergraduate degree of BSc in Kinesiology from York University. Throughout his professional experience, Karim has developed a special interest in treating patients who suffer from Metabolic Syndrome—namely diabetes, hypertension, central obesity, and hyperlipidemia.
Why should patients choose you?
My goal is to take a holistic and personalized approach to treating the person by addressing the root cause of their chief concern. I see my patients as actual people that are coming to me for help with a specific problem. Through long discussions and collaboration, I aim to work with them in finding gentle health solutions that are realistic and customized to their abilities. I have undergone extra training in homeopathy with the purpose of improving my listening skills so that I can provide the best service possible to my patients. I work hard with every patient because I know my success will depend on their success.
What are the top 3 treatments that you specialize in?
Weight loss (Abdominal obesity), High blood pressure, Diabetes, High cholesterol
What are you proud of in your practice?
I am proud of having patients coming back with a smile, telling me of their success after they’ve implemented what we discussed. I am also proud of helping my patients achieve so much in their health, with relatively minor changes to their lifestyle.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
I enjoy treating people who are committed to their health and who are willing to be part of decisions affecting their health. From experience, I know that change is more powerful when it is the individual’s own choice rather than being enforced by a healthcare provider. I work together with my patients to help them realize the best solution possible for them. By empowering them to take their health into their own hands, I remove their dependence on my services so that they only come back when they need to and not because they have to.
I am particularly passionate about treating people suffering from metabolic syndrome because I strongly believe blood sugar dysregulation to be a root cause of not only diabetes and many cardiovascular disorders, but also of disorders not previously linked to it, such as Alzheimers and Acne.
