Why I Do This
I have always been interested in healing. My first exposure was as a kid watching my grandmother work her miracles using her folk remedies. With her backyard herbs she made liniments, poultices, ointments, teas--she had a cure for everything. I once asked her how she learned all these remedies. She said that her grandmother was the curandera, the medicine woman, and people would come from all over to see her.
I wanted to go into medicine, but instead I decided to go a more natural route where I can make a difference. So I'm continuing the "family business," except I'm the one with the formal schooling and the fancy degrees. I can only hope to make my great-great grandmother proud.
