About Dr. Gosal

In this brief video, Dr. Gosal discusses his background and how he applies the integrative medical approach.

Dr. Gosal is the physician consultant at Kaizen Medical Inc. Dr. Gosal received his medical degree from Manchester Medical School at the University of Manchester. For many years in his practice as a family physician, Dr. Gosal felt strongly that he could offer more to his patients. He had entered medicine to promote health and wellness, and had come to find that through the utilization of the standard medical treatments, a significant proportion of his patients continued to succumb to the complications of the disease process.

He recognized that there was an inherent need in medicine to treat patients not as the management of units of separate unrelated symptoms, but as an interconnected web of complex and interrelated biological systems which should be addressed simultaneously. When one part of a patient is unhealthy or out of balance, there can be other processes or systems that are consequently affected. Dr. Gosal realized that he could offer more to his patients, and has been striving to broaden his education and resource base, in order to deliver a more complete integrative medical approach to his patients.

Dr. Gosal enrolled in the Fellowship for Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine at the American Academy for Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M), and has completed his Master’s Degree in Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine. This University affiliated Master’s degree is currently the only one of its kind in North America and aims to bridge the gap between the Conventional Medical approach and Functional Medicine. He is one of a select few physicians within Canada to hold this distinction, supplementing his well-established Family Medicine practice with expertise in Preventive Care and other innovative evidence-based therapies. In addition to this, Dr. Gosal is a lead physician for the BC Athletic Commission as well as a member of the Association of Ringside Physicians.

By offering medical intervention focused on treating the root cause of the problem, instead of masking symptoms, Dr. Gosal has seamlessly integrated Functional Medicine into his medical practice. By not only seeing patients when they are sick, but also offering prevention and wellness education as part of an integrative medical environment, means that Dr. Gosal will help his patients to truly optimize their medical care on an individual basis, with more options available to patients for personalized health care.

Dr. Gosal is also an accomplished athlete and instructor (martial arts), and certified fitness instructor. He spends his leisure time researching health and wellness, and enjoys exercise and physical activity.
