is the founder of Pure Indian Foods (pureindianfoods.com ) which makes grassfed organic ghee and sells traditional organic Indian foods.  He is also the founder and chief curator of ButterWorld (butterworld.org), a traveling exhibition showcasing unique, rare and historical dairy artifacts from around the world.  His interest in dairy history grew out of his family’s fifth-generation ghee business (started by his great-great-grandfather in 1889) and the culturally significant role that dairy plays within his Indian heritage.  Sandeep is a graduate of David Winston’s Center for Herbal Studies’ two-year herbalist training program and one-year graduate program.  He has spoken at Ayurvedic conferences in the USA and India. Sandeep is passionate about cooking traditional Indian foods using lots of fresh herbs and dry spices.

Dr. Campbell-McBride graduated with honors as a medical doctor in 1984 from Bashkir Medical University in Russia. In the following years she gained a postgraduate degree in neurology and completed a second postgraduate degree in human nutrition at Sheffield University, UK.

In 2004 she published a book Gut And Psychology Syndrome. Natural Treatment of Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Depression and Schizophrenia where she explores the connection between the patient’s physical state and brain function. The book gives full details of the GAPS Nutritional Protocol, highly successful in treating patients with learning disabilities and other mental problems.  A second edition was published in 2010, and the book has been translated into twelve languages.

In her clinic Dr. Campbell-McBride works with many patients with heart disease, high blood pressure, arrhythmia, stroke and other complications of atherosclerosis. She has become acutely aware of the existing confusion about nutrition and these conditions, which spurred an intensive study into this subject resulting in her 2007 book, Put Your Heart in Your Mouth! What Really is Heart Disease and What Can We Do to Prevent and Even Reverse It.

She uses various cutting-edge treatment modalities including constitutional homeopathy, according to the theories of Dr. Divya Chhabra from India, auriculotherapy from France, neural therapy from Germany, nutritional supplementation, and counseling patients on the importance of a nutrient-dense organic GMO-free Weston A.
