How a High School Science Teacher with a Black Belt in Aikido became a
believe a lot of the problems we are encountering with the current generation," says Dr. Mauro,"stems from parents not spending enough time with their children. Especially when they are very young.
"And by 'time,' I mean quality time. Not sitting in front of the TV."
In fact, from age two, Dr. Mauro started bringing his son Alek to the golf course. By age four, Alek had a natural swing—always finishing on his toes.
And Dr. Mauro's daughter, Ella, also by age two, was already equipped with her own set of golf clubs (which she could barely carry, no less swing).
People Would Turn And Stare
Ella would line her balls up at the driving range and say, "Watch dis Daddy. Nine balls!" (She always said nine, no matter how many balls she had).
Then whack! Whack! WHACK!... Some balls go ten feet, some go fifty.
But Dr. Mauro wouldn't say anything. "I just sat there and let them have fun," he says.
Dr. Mauro was born and raised in Windsor, Ontario, where the first sport he fell in love with was soccer. He played right through university until age 25 when he was introduced to golf.
"My friends would tell me they were going off to play golf," says Dr. Mauro. "'Alright,' I'd say, 'let me know when you get back.'"
But then one day he tried it, and since then he can't get enough of it. "Golf's one of the few things that'll put a smile on my face at 6am."
Dr. Mauro Didn't Begin
In fact, he wasn't even aware of it at the time. There weren't any ND's in Windsor back then.
Instead, he finished his Bachelor of Science Degree in Biological Sciences at the University of Windsor. "The body" says Dr. Mauro, "is the ultimate mathematical formula in action. No super computer comes close to the complexity of the human body and brain."
Dr. Mauro moved on to study the mind, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology.
He was always recognized as a good listener and enjoyed helping people get through their difficulties. This, along with his love for children led him to earning a Master of Science degree in Teacher Education.
It seemed he would now enjoy a lifelong career as a high school biology and chemistry teacher...
But That Never Happened
In 1992 Dr. Mauro began training in the martial art of Aikido. Today he holds a 3rd degree black belt.
"Martial arts opened my eyes to living a more natural lifestyle. Staying more balanced physically and mentally." This led to a fascination with Chinese medicine.
When, in 1995, Dr. Mauro started experiencing some digestive trouble, he went to see a Naturopathic Doctor in London, Ontario for the first time.
"I was surprised that the Naturopath had such thorough knowledge of medical health—he wasn't just herbs and vitamins.
"I was also impressed by how much one-on-one attention he gave me. I was used to being pushed out of the doctor's office only minutes after finally being able to see the MD.
“I haven't had any problems since.”
"Above all," continues Dr. Mauro, "all the gastrointestinal troubles I had were resolved by the treatments he gave me."
Dr. Mauro went on to visit six other Naturopaths in the London area. Not as a patient with a problem, but as a student full of questions.
"It didn't take long to realize,"he says," that I wanted to become one of their colleagues."
Family and Friends Were A Bit Concerned Though
"It came as a shock when I told people I'd be spending another 4 years (and more money than I care to remember) studying a profession they knew nothing about."
Dr. Mauro's wife stood by him: "Anybody who managed to get 100% in Grade 13 Calculus," says Natalia, "could learn this. Karlo is fascinated by how the body works, loves helping people and has a knack for teaching.
"It seemed like my husband was destined to have an ND after his name."
Destiny Isn't Always So Easy to Fulfill
Dr. Mauro lived in St. Catharine's during his schooling in Toronto. His "walk to school" consisted of a 45 minute drive to Burlington, followed by 60 minutes on the Go Train to Union station, concluding with 20 minutes on Toronto's subway line. That came to a minimal commute of 4 hours and 10 minutes... EACH DAY!
How did he do it?
"Perseverance, dedication, discipline," says Dr. Mauro."Nobody or nothing was going to stop me from accomplishing my goal. I was committed to my passion and dream of becoming a Naturopathic Doctor."
After 4,500 hours of schooling and 3,000 hours of commuting, Dr. Mauro and his wife moved back to the Windsor area and set up their clinic in Tecumseh.
In his 14th year of practice, Dr. Mauro says, "I am privileged and honored to have helped thousands of patients remove pain, fatigue and discomfort from their lives. Many were able to avoid more invasive treatments.
"I'm here to help you find relief from your ailments, with little or no negative side-effects."

Eva V., a 52 year old woman drove 3 hours (one way) to come to my clinic to tell me her story. She had bowel troubles since she was a child...
"Throughout the years I got used to using enemas -- at least 2 to 3 time a week. And if things got really bad I would go to the hospital and get something stronger. This was my life.
I saw many specialists and tried the best natural remedies available. They would work for a couple of days and then I would return to my usual bowel habits.
That's when I decided to buy Dr. Mauro's 37 Constipation Home Remedies For Women.
When I started Remedy #5, I immediately started feeling movement in my stomach. The next day I started a few more strategies and surprise, surprise, I had a bowel movement.
That was over 2 months ago and I'm still having daily bowel movements without taking any enemas or laxatives.
I am extremely happy. It feels so good when your colon is working properly. Especially in my case, having such an extreme case of constipation, my whole body is now working properly. Thank you Dr. Mauro.!"
"It feels so much relief when after years I now know what's wrong. Thanks for everything... for every mail, for every word.
I will say that I have started feeling changes in my GUT already.
Those bricks are much softer and headache has not been there since your emails. I can't tell you how it feels to tell you what you did. Life has changed a lot for me in many ways! Thanks."
