From this part of my site, you can learn about my background and training. Having to go through severe health issues after graduating from medical school, I experienced and learned many things that helped me towards understanding the bigger picture related to health and life in general. Now I am sharing and using everything I learned to help others.
Nevertheless, a few years later in December of 2006, I was diagnosed with cancer of my left vocal cord, which was already at stage three. At first, I thought it was not true. I kept asking myself why would something like this happen to me if I am a medical doctor, I didn’t smoke and I had “healthy” habits.
The first step was to begin with the traditional treatment which I started in January of 2007 at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital in New York. The treatment consisted of six months of chemotherapy and 37 sessions of radiotherapy. During that time, I started to read about the relationship between foods and cancer, and immediately I started to eat organic foods. I got rid of all artificial drinks, artificial sweeteners, etc. Being a Christian, I put in GOD’s hands my life and my health. After three months into the treatment, well into the middle of it while I was praying, I received healing through GOD’s word. He told me through the Bible: “May you go in peace, your faith has healed you.” As confirmation that this was real, I asked the Lord to suspend the treatment. After praying, I found out that for medical reasons the treatment miraculously was suspended.
My interest to obtain more knowledge about the nutrition influence in the development of cancer increased even more and with enthusiasm, I studied at the Institute of Integral Nutrition in Manhattan, New York, where I obtained my certificate as Health Coach. I then studied cancer and nutrition program offered by the University of Arizona (Integral Medicine Faculty), and additionally, I obtained my certificate as Health Educator at the Institute of Hippocrates, in West Palm Beach, Florida, where I am currently working.
It has been many years since I had cancer and presently, I am in perfect health. I must point out that JESUS’s hands healed me and I have been compliant in keeping myself healthy. Thanks to my professional development and my personal experience, I learned that the best way to cure any illness is to prevent it.
At this time in my life, I dedicate myself to help people to reach an optimum health level through natural methods in order to prevent illness. Equally, if anybody has cancer or any other illness and wants to try different methods other than through conventional or allopathic medicine, it would be a pleasure to treat them as well.
I believe we are not only a physical body, but we also are an energetic body, emotional, mind and overall we are a spiritual body, I believe in order to heal you need to approach all these bodies, most of the western medicine have focus only in the physical body ignoring the others, in my experience we need to treat all of them to bring healing and optimum health, this is what I call Holistic Medicine.
The Microbiome the new frontier in Medicine, the super organ that needed to be discovered.
Although for decades conventional medicine has spread the false belief that bacteria, viruses and fungi are harmful by nature, today these concepts are being revised and widely controversial.
The Microbiome refers to the billions of microorganisms that inhabit our body and that are essential in most of the processes that take place not only in the digestive system but in all systems of the human body.
My wish is to inspire you to take measures and actions in order to cultivate this relationship with the earth, nature and the beautiful microbiome that is not only present in us, it is in everything that surrounds us and us. holds.
