“Much to my surprise, the strange cures he made for me, worked. I forgot about my latest diagnosis. I just answered all his off the wall questions, and took all the little sugar pellets he made for me.”

From Ana G. The narrow strokes about me can be summarized in being a wounded healer. The same stock from which I come also came with many thorns to which I incremented over the years. The scars of being uprooted from my family follow me to this day. Adding to that the long and winding road to a place to call home, and I can safely say that I have waters that run deep. If I had to pin point one pivotal moment in life, it would be that point when I was snatched from all the unconditional love in the world, when we left my homeland. I spent the rest of my life searching for home. A very recent realization is that I have been living in the past in this regard. Admiration and love for my father came mixed with expectations and judgements from my mother, led to a very conflicted unconscious belief system. Fast forward to living in Hawai’i. I came to Hawai’i escaping my life crisis. I fully expected to be here to take care of my pregnancy and return strong to my previous life. That never happened. I lost my reason for living, the source of my strength, my child, at 3 days old. Second major blow from which I never recovered. Returning to my old life was impossible. I was broken. I was lost. So I remained here to heal, to take a minute to grieve. I have been here 30 years. All attempts to leave have failed. Along the way, I have had many downfalls, injuries to my body and soul. Western medicine to which I felt so much kinship and admiration failed me. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, depression, herniated discs which I was doomed to live with for the rest of my life. A friend at the time of one of those spine injuries was dating a Homeopath. She suggested I consult with him. He asked the weirdest questions. What difference does it make if I crave sugar or salt?? I humored him. Much to my surprise, the strange cures he made for me, worked. I forgot about my latest diagnosis. I just answered all his off the wall questions, and took all the little sugar pellets he made for me. I was sold. He familiarized me with Homeopathy. I learned that it’s my emotional body that I must heal. My time at High School for the Health Professions, now called DeBakey High School for the Health Professions, gave me medical skills. I worked as a nurse’s aid Page 2 of 2 in a county (free) hospital, I worked with developmentally challenged children, I observed surgeries, observed autopsy, took anatomy and physiology at Baylor College of Medicine, worked in a pediatric clinic, went on to set up my father’s own pediatric clinic and I worked with him for 2 years, I drew blood, I assisted in circumcisions, gave kids shots, did CBCs, cultures, wore the white lab coat, and worked side by side in the field with nurses and doctors. I knew what I wanted. I wanted that contribution to society, that pristine lab coat. I have to admit, I felt like a total failure when I realized how far I had come from my dream as an adult in Hawai’i. Even when Western Medicine let me down, that passion to heal was not quenched. The flame burns bright even today. I have been held back from returning to a healing modality only by the inability to make friends with monetary wealth. The desire burns bright. It is a calling. Homeopathy is the one that I revert to no matter what other modalities I learn. I decided enough waiting. I want this, I have always wanted this. This is my time. I am a healer who is ready to heal.
