About Gabriela Segura, MD.

I’m a heart surgeon graduated from the University of Milan who after learning all about the heart and repairs of same from a strictly mechanical point of view, had decided to embark on alternative health research. I was born into a multiethnic family in Central America, where I  learned to love nature and beautiful horizons. I’ve had the amazing opportunity to live in several countries and I’m currently located in Europe, as I continue to  learn and amalgamate all my experiences in a new light. You’ll find in this blog invaluable research gained throughout my ongoing learning journey.
