As a child, Dr. Angelina would always ask her father (a medical doctor) why he had to leave to go to work. His response was always, “I’m not going to work, I’m going to play!” The thought of enjoying what you do while taking care of patients drove her desire to become a doctor.
When time for applying to medical school came around, she thought back to how her mother would offer her home remedies like turmeric powder or gargling with warm water instead of the typical doctor’s visits.
Dr. Angelina’s whole life circled around the concept that health can be accomplished & maintained with natural remedies.
