Welcome Message & About Us
Posted by Dr. Ben Kim on Dec 21, 2007
Welcome to our website!
My name is Ben Kim. I live with my wife and two sons in Ontario, Canada within an hour's drive of my grandmother, parents, sisters, and a large clan of aunts, uncles, and cousins who I am immensely grateful to call family.
I began my career in health care in 1997 running the northern-most chiropractic clinic in North America in a First Nations Alaskan village called Barrow. From there, I practiced in northern California where I completed an residential internship in water fasting supervision.
I started this site back in March of 2003 when I established a residential fasting and chiropractic clinic in Barrie, Ontario. What began as a way to continue to support those who stayed at my fasting clinic turned into a site through which I am extremely privileged to share all that I have learned and continue to learn about self health care - I'm honoured to note that in 2016, our site welcomed more than 5 million unique visitors with more than 120 million page views.
Throughout 20 years of private practice in the United States and Canada, my guiding principle has always been simple: treat and advise everyone as I do my own family.
While I have a lot of respect for allopathic and alternative health care practices, I believe that through our daily choices, all of us have a great deal of power over the level of health we experience.
If you've been searching for answers to your health concerns, you might be feeling confused by the conflicting views that exist in conventional and alternative medical circles on how to address different health challenges.
As you look through this site, I hope that you gain clarity on your concerns, and confidence in your ability to support your health with your daily choices. I don't have solutions for every health challenge, but I do feel through my years of study and practice, I have learned what the most important determinants of health are - you'll find articles and videos on these determinants throughout this site, all available for free to anyone in the world with internet access.
Through my years of practice and consulting, I have helped enough people recover from severe and chronic health challenges to know that there is always reason to hope for and expect improvement with your health if you apply the principles found throughout this site.
If you're not sure where to start, please feel free to view some of the following resources that I have published on common health concerns:
If you find this site to be helpful, I encourage you to sign up for my free e-newsletter here: Dr. Ben Kim's Newsletter Sign-Up. Doing so will allow you to receive new articles and videos as I publish them. I also invite you to connect with me at my social media pages - I regularly post to Instagram and Facebook.
In case you are curious about my educational background, I studied at the University of Toronto before going on to earn my Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 1997 at the National University of Health Sciences in Illinois. I graduated summa cum laude and class salutatorian, and more importantly, I walked away from my years of formal education with an excellent foundation in basic and clinical sciences - it's a foundation that I largely credit for any help that I have given to patients, clients, and readers of this site over the years.
I'm also a graduate of the Contemporary Medical Acupuncture Program at McMaster University.
The ongoing running of this site wouldn't be possible without a trio of wonderfully kind and competent women - Colleen, Renu, and Naintara.
Colleen is our Client Care Manager. She lives with her family in Arkansas and has a special appreciation for feeling balanced in all areas of her life and being near large bodies of water.
Renu and Naintara are a mother-daughter team based in Delhi. As our Order Processing Manager, Renu is the one who makes sure that orders for resources at our natural health catalogue are processed accurately and in a timely manner. Naintara is our world-class programmer; whenever there is a need for upgrading the software that makes our site possible, she comes to the rescue.
As this website has evolved, and as our readership has grown into the millions, I have been fortunate to correspond with countless thoughtful people from many walks of life. I hope that you draw as much inspiration from this site as I have received from our readers.
Wishing you peace and good health,
P.S. Please note that as of January, 2017, after 20 years of being in private practice, I am enormously grateful to devote all of my working hours to this site and consulting for people where I feel I can on a pro bono basis. Though no longer in practice as a chiropractor and acupuncturist, I am as passionate as ever about caring for oneself and improving quality of life through our daily choices. I will always be with board certification with the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners in the States and the Canadian Chiropractic Board Examiners, but I am grateful to be completely free of obligations to any state or provincial body.
I can always be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
