From Lucy M., Winnipeg
I always wanted to be a doctor, since the age of 5 I knew who I wanted to be, I wanted to be just like mommy and daddy, just like grandpa. Wonderful doctors, who have a wonderful heart, and always put the patients’ health and well being before money. And I did it, I became a doctor, and I made a difference while doing my medical internship, but I never thought that life would bring me to this change, and I feel blessed for it.
When I was around 5, I was able to run around my parents’ medical laboratory, and I was able to see and interact with my parents’ patients, the patients were always happy to let me listen in and learn, since a very young age Iused to listen to clinical history taken, and diagnoses being done, it was part of my life, and I loved it. I was encouraged to see through the microscope, and they would teach me about cells, I knew what a red blood cell looked like at the age of 6. So I was really amazed by that world, and I knew I wanted to be a doctor, but as I grew older I began understanding that being a doctor is much more than physical exploration and medical history collection, it’s about the personal touch, it’s about understanding that each person is different, and that each person has a specific situation happening in their lives.
I remember one day, I was shopping in the mall with my cousin, and we were talking and laughing, and we went into a jewellery store, and the sales person looked at us, and she approached, and asked if she could help, we said we were browsing, and she proceeded to ask “are you Dr. Lara-Manitas’ grandchildren?” (that’s my grandfather’s last name), we said yes, she then jumped and said, “well you should know, that man saved my son’s life”. I was shocked, she then told us how my grandfather saw that her son was very ill, she didn't have money for surgery, but my grandfather rushed the boy to the emergency room and did everything that he needed to do. And when the bill came, he paid for it. I was in awe , I knew my grandfather was known for his good deeds but getting a beautiful story like this from a stranger, made me so happy; that moment influenced me so much during my training.
I began training in 2004, it was tough, but I could manage, long hours of no sleeping, and on top of all that study for exams? It was challenging, but no less fun, I was doing 32 hour shifts delivering babies, but it was the best time of my life, I cannot deny it got more special every time. In 2011 I graduated and wrote my professional exam, it was one of the greatest achievements of my life.
I moved to Winnipeg in March 2011 and in October 2011, I met the love of my life, my now husband Anton. we were meant to be, and by June 2012 we were married. He is responsible for my shift in thinking. He exposed me to different theories about the world, together we met people who helped us with our spiritual journey, and one of them, my dear friend, gave me as a gift a course of past life regression called, Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy. He believes my husband and I can help a lot of people with hypnosis, but little did he know that course would change our lives and his too.
From that course and all that I have read, my belief is that the body is perfect and it’s made to cure itself, and that every symptom is a message from the body saying something is missing or something is not right, and not only physically but also in our life. So I began doubting pharmaceuticals, I began researching about pharmaceutical companies, and the relationship with illness, and I was shocked to see how we are manipulated as Medical Doctors to give poison to people. We are made to believe that we are helping when we are just making other people rich. We later met a really interesting lady, Carole, who is very spiritual, and only goes to chiropractors, homeopaths, and naturopaths, and she showed me a whole different world of medicine. She is the reason why I began researching homeopathy.
In conclusion, I went from being a very logical and analytical person, to a very spiritual and open person. My reason to become a homeopathic doctor is to help people, to help others with their illnesses, to listen to people and give them hope when they are having a problem. I enjoyed being a doctor so much, for the fact that you have the chance to give and help, and I miss that part of being a doctor, and now that I understand that we have everything that we need in nature to heal, because the Creator gave us this gift, the gift of Mother Earth. And I now believe that true medicine is in nature and in balance, our body just needs a little push and it can do wonders. That’s why I want to learn this beautiful art of healing naturally.
