Dr. Karen van Wyk is a family physician with a keen interest in holistic, root-cause, mind-body healing. She has studied Integrative Medicine, completed courses in Eastern medical practices, and is certified in Functional Medicine, through the Institute for Functional Medicine.
She has changed her focus from general family practice to more in-depth lifestyle, nutritional, integrative mind-body, coaching and preventive care practice.
She enjoys exploring the root causes of illness/dis-ease, so that people can truly heal and live to their fullest potential. She welcomes patients who want to be proactive, fully engaged, open-minded, open-hearted partners with her in their journey to health and happiness.
The purpose of a doctor or any human in general should not be to simply delay the death of the patient, but to increase the person’s quality of life.PatchAdams
