Life took her through various paths such as studying at the University at UNAM, a law degree and a technical career in Oil Painting, managing to rediscover her path in Traditional Medicine. When, as a mother, she treated her first Daughter with all the teachings of her Mother; Over time she healed with Indigenous medicine (vegetarian nutrition, yoga and meditation) fibroids and cysts of her uterus, at the age of 26.
