My name is Lester Ruiz, I am originally from Havana, Cuba. At a very young age I found my way into the books of Medicine in my big sister’s book shelf. I didn’t know it at the time but my curiosity for human anatomy would incline my life into the wonderful path of “The Healer.” Around that same time my mother spotted my interest and gave me as a present, a beautiful book about Nutrition and Natural Herbs. The Book’s main topic was the comparison in nutritional value of vegetables and other natural foods harvested on various soils in different parts of the World. The facts I found in the book amazed me so much that even now, many years later I treasure this knowledge. So you could say that was the first time I was interested in Natural Healing and nutrition, I was about 10 years of age.
Time passed by and in Cuba I grew up watching my grandmother making natural home remedies from the garden for different ailments. More years passed by and the economy wasn’t good, so the herbal remedies where now even more popular and almost the only thing we had left as therapeutic drugs. I particularly remember a very bad toothache that bothered me for more than a week, all maximum amount of anesthetics where used and yet there was still the pain. A tincture of Yanten (Plantago Asiatica) was all there was left and so my Dentist used it and Voila ! pain was gone almost instantly. This episode made me earn a big respect for Plants and natural remedies.
It was time to choose a Career, i chose a 5 Year Nurse Program at University of Medical Science of Havana. School was nice, I exceeded in Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry and Psychology, I was enjoying it. Unfortunately for my studies and fortunately for me right after my first two years I decided to migrate to U.S.
A few years passed and the dream of becoming a Health care professional never faded. In spite of the fact that now I had to start from the beginning and in another language I started College to earn my Arts associate. Overwhelmed by the 10 years of studies ahead I was looking for alternatives and I remembered always wanting to learn Herbology, so I started looking, and then there it was. For the first time I read the word AYURVEDA, "The Science of Life." Every line my eyes read about this fascinating ancient knowledge resonated in my soul, everything had a sense of logic and a hint of mystery and that was enough to stimulate my curiosity and get my attention. Ayurveda was what I was looking for and much more. It was the “Lost or forgotten Healing knowledge” of our seven thousand year civilization which I had wonder about all of my life and suddenly there it was I had found it.
One day looking for Ayurvedic Schools I found Sai Ayurvedic College of Miami. I liked the program, it was challenging and for my second Year I needed to study in India, where the Ayurveda tradition was kept latent for more than 5000 years. So no more waiting and my journey started.
In October 2014 in Kannur Kerala. India. I graduated from an Advance Course of Ayurveda and received Yoga and Meditation course from Vaidhyas Ayurvedic Hospital and Institute of Panchakarma Therapy.
in November 16. 2014 after my first year of studies I graduated from Sai Ayurvedic College of Miami as a Certified Ayurvedic Health and Wellness Counselor.
The following year on October 2015 I became an Ayurvedic Prctitioner ,receiving a Bachelor Of Vedic Studies (Ayurveda) (BVSA) earned with Academic Excellence in my class.
In the year 2016 I continued my studies and became a Certified Reiki Practitioner First and second degree from the School of Reiki of Orlando.
After all these years I can happily say i have found my path… Healing is my passion, Love is in my Heart.
