Doctor of Natural Medicine | Ayurvedic Practitioner

David has roots as a holistically minded young man dating back decades. David’s mother tells stories of how when he was a young boy, he would talk about being an American Indian medicine man and having visions of using plants and other natural items to heal people. Throughout David’s life, he has always been “that guy” you could call and ask a healing type question, as he has been well read in ancient healing teachings and homeopathy for almost four decades. As he was self-taught in homeopathy, David has treated himself, friends and family naturally for a long time just to be helpful, caring and to spread the love found in holistic healing. In 2010, David decided to make holistic medicine his profession and started on a quest of study that has taken him to many states, and even India. This journey has required a vast commitment not only in time and finances for study programs, doctoral studies, internships and trips abroad, but a sacrifice to the profession he loves. Just this year, 2018, David was awarded the doctoral degree of DNM, Doctor of Natural Medicine. David’s true love is Ayurveda and he was recently blessed with the opportunity to work in an Ayurvedic clinic in India. During the summer of 2018, David returned to India for deeper studies under a famous Ayurvedic doctor in the traditional setting of guru-to-student, and not university teachings. Ayurveda is a life-long journey and requires a discipline that continues to evolve due to its vastness. Now as an Ayurvedic Practitioner and Doctor of Natural Medicine, David is seeing people at his clinic, Blue Lotus Healing Center, and also teaches Holistic Health Practitioners and beginning Ayurvedic Consultants though his institute, OM Wellness Institute, located in the same center as BLHC.
