“I knew I wanted to be a biologist at the age of five. I saw a robin eat a caterpillar and my dad, Ernest Edward Waters, explained to me that there was a certain balance in Nature.
After early training in biology, biochemistry, and genetics, I went to Medical School anticipating I could use all the principles of science I had learned to improve the health of my patients.
However, I learned early on that my profession was focused on a drug therapy paradigm to treat human illness. Within one year of starting practice, I decided to apply the basic sciences of biology, chemistry, anatomy and physiology in an attempt to improve the medical complaints of my patients.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that humans were designed to be healthy. My genetics research taught me that, if given the proper raw materials, organisms could heal themselves of illness.”
