If the COVID-19 pandemic taught us anything, it's that health is the greatest wealth. Kimberly chats with naturopath, Dr. David Sandstrom on incorporating a holistic model of health into your life combining the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. @crownyourselfnow
In this episode, you will learn…
David Sandstrom is a Naturopathic Doctor, Certified Nutritional Counselor, Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, Certified Metabolic Typing Advisor, and a Certified Biblical Health Coach. He holds an MBA from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University and is also an Airline Captain for a Major, legacy carrier based in Atlanta, Georgia.
From a very young age David sensed a God-given passion for health and wellness. When HE was in grade school, he had a friend that came from a family of 10 kids. You can bet there were plenty of cold viruses being brought home by his siblings. However, this kid never got sick. But, from Kindergarten to 6th grade he never missed a day of school from illness. He was also the happiest, most optimistic person I knew. David became convinced even at this young age, that his joyful approach to life helped protect him from illness. This was the start of his interest and passion for natural and holistic health.
In the mid 1990s David developed persistent sinusitis. The doctors gave him all the drugs they could. When the drugs failed to bring him relief, they recommended surgery. The internet was still in its infancy, but with his dial-up connection he did some research on sinus surgery and the prognosis wasn't good. It was in that moment he said, "There's got to be a better way."
David made some changes to his diet by eliminating some of the more offensive foods and did a yeast cleanse. Long story short, 30 days later David felt like a new person. He could breathe through his nose again and he felt better than he had in years. From that point on, David was hooked on natural health.
After the terrorist attacks of 9-11 the airline industry got hit hard and David received his credentials as a naturopathic doctor and opened his private practice office in 2005. He did natural health coaching until 2011 when he and his family moved to Atlanta. The airline industry was looking up, so he never opened a practice in Atlanta. But, his passion never faded.
In 2012, David was diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease. He knew that getting over chronic Lyme and the co-infections that go along with it was going to be no easy task. That's when he decided to learn all I could about true, holistic, whole-person health that nurtures the entire person, body, mind, and spirit.
What David learned changed my life. He beat Lyme disease without any medical intervention whatsoever. It also revolutionized the way he now looks at health and wellness.
After recovering from Lyme disease, David wrote my book "The Christian's Guide to Holistic Health." He is a teacher at heart and I knew that he couldn't remain silent about what he'd learned.
Now, David is the host of the Holistic Health Matters Podcast, and continues to spread his message of faith and fruits and veggies.
