After medical school doctor D studied Internal Medicine and General Surgery, stuck with the system and then had a change in focus.
Disheartened with Western Medicine and the “dangling carrot” cure mentality he sought an alternative approach. Along the way he experienced everything from folk healing to psychedelic shamanism.
