In 2010, Gaya is introduced to different fields of alternative and ancient medicine. She first learns about the groundbreaking work of Biomagnetism from her sister and how a family member’s Lupus was cured with this method even though Lupus is considered “incurable” by Western Medicine’s standards. As she became immersed in Biomagnetism, she witnessed how her family, friends, colleagues and pets suffering from cancer, lupus, arthritis, asthma, infertility, digestive issues, kidney failure, depression, anxiety, back pain, migraines, insomnia, quickly saw results.

During her time in public health and working with the government, she looked closely at the pros and cons of Western medicine.

Her own scoliosis was corrected and her tendonitis disappeared. She became an avid student of the Biomagnetic Pair, also known as Medical Biomagnetism, under its founder, Dr. Issac Goiz Duran (Mexico), and furthered her studies with internationally renowned professors. 

A researcher by nature with her training in mental health, she pushed the boundaries of her studies in biomagnetism towards a holistic approach in order to effectively address the emotional, mental and energy aspects that influence health, beyond the physical aspects.
