Dr. Martha describes what motivates her to provide such caring professional services. “Ever since I was young, I was always in love with natural functional medicine, herbs and nutrition. If we ever got sick my mom would go to the back yard, snip some herbs and boil them to make us feel better. She would use food as medicine for whatever needed to be cured. If we were starting to get sick, she would make a pot of chicken soup and add herbs and vegetables depending on our symptoms. The gift of natural healing runs in the family. My aunt was the town healer in Culiacan, Sinaloa Mexico. She would treat all who came to her with herbs and other modalities for any ailment. I feel very fortunate to pursue a career in Traditional Chinese Medicine, honoring my mother and aunt by continuing the legacy that they began.”
