Karim Abdullah, ND

When I look back on the path that has led me to a rewarding practice that integrates Naturopathic and Oriental Medicine, there have been many important elements and experiences which have motivated me along this wonderful road. Primary among them have been my interests in learning about Nature, Humanity, the Sciences and the Source of all Life and Creation.

Each time we meet, my focus is to learn about your constitution and your condition, and to restore your health using the safest, yet most effective natural methods in medicine. I have great respect for the efforts and advances in conventional (allopathic) medicine and enjoy collaborating with Medical Doctors and Specialists to help a human being regain the gift of good health on all of its refined dimensions of well-being: spiritually, psychologically, emotionally and physically.
