Although I was born in Germany, my family moved to Spain when I was twelve years old (that is the reason for my native language level of German and Spanish). After finishing medical school at the Universidad de la Laguna, in Tenerife, I started my 5- year specialist training in Internal Medicine at the Complejo Hospitalario Universitario Insular - Materno Infantil, in Gran Canaria.
Soon I became aware of the paramount importance of an individualised and holistic (whole-person) approach. I could see a clear link between the emotional state and the health disturbances my patients were suffering from, and that prescribing drugs alone would not resolve their problems. Every person is different and has his/her own special needs that should be addressed individually.
This prompted me to gain further education in complementary therapies including a MSc in Homeopathic Medicine at the Universitat de Barcelona, MFHom qualification in Bristol, Master’s parctitioner in NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) and Master’s in Ericksonian Hypnosis, as well as advanced training in Bio-analisis e Inversión EmocionalTM (several courses in Málaga and Barcelona), related to identify and solve specific emotional conflicts in the patient's life that may aggravate or even lead to health disturbances (from allergies, to autoimmune diseases or from depression to cancer).
Until recently, our genes were thought to rule our life, our health, however, since the discovery of Epigenetic, this paradigm is no longer true. Continuously increasing research is showing how our life-style is influencing our DNA expression, and how, not only environmental factors, such as food or pollution, but also emotions are able to up- or down-regulate genes.
