Dr. Dave Sinha
MD and Founder of Synergy Collaborative Health
Dr. Dave Sinha completed his medical degree from the University of Alberta and his post-graduate training in Family Medicine with the Rural Alberta North Program. Exposure to the breadth of primary care in under-serviced areas provided the foundation of his current practice in procedural medicine, psychotherapy and comprehensive primary care.
His later experiences with Medicentres, Integrative Medicine Institute, and Oasis Health Systems inspired him to pursue training in a multitude of disciplines spanning the scope of healing – from prolotherapy and functional medicine, to minor surgery, women’s health and hypnotherapy.
He began to develop a greater appreciation for the role of consciousness in healing and how health issues were intimately connected to the deepest issues of the heart. He observed how these unresolved patterns would emerge through imbalances of behaviour and biochemistry to ultimately manifest as disease. He learned that patient engagement as well as community play an essential role. It could be said that healing is as much about tending to the fruit as laying the axe to the root.
The coming together of potential, people and perspectives is the heart of ‘Synergy’.
