Dr. David Yoder discovered throughout his education he wanted to be a doctor to help those in need. He began a pre-medical course of study and was granted a full-ride scholarship by the N.I.H. at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, to pursue a special M.D.-PhD program. After beginning this program, Dr. Yoder soon realized that his analytical brain was being stimulated, but his heart was not in it. He needed to find a different philosophy that incorporated natural healing principals.
On a summer break, Dr. Yoder interned with a chiropractor who mentored him on how the mind-body connection was actually through the human nervous system. He became a patient to learn this firsthand, and he soon noticed how much healthier his own body became. But what was more important was discovering the concept that the body can heal itself and that western medicine was really designed for crises care, not “health care”. With that in mind, Dr. Yoder began to pursue a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree. Upon graduating from Life West Chiropractic College in the San Francisco bay area, he moved to San Diego with his family.
