To my Patients
Dearest precious patient,
It is with a broken heart that I must inform you that Dr. Bernardo went home to the Lord on October 5, 2010. He was asking about all of you even while in the hospital. My primary concern is for your health and well being. I have worked side by side with Bernardo for many years and know most of you. Please contact me so that I can be sure that your treatment can go forward. I will be happy to continue directing your treatment as Bernardo would (what's your pH today) or I can search for the best referral for your situation.
Please contact me at your earliest convenience. I have included a copy of his obituary. Thank you for your love and support of Bernardo; he will be greatly missed by us all.
Bernardo C. Majalca, N.D.
On Tuesday October 5, 2010 the Lord escorted Bernardo C. Majalca home. Bernardo began his life in San Antonio, Texas on April 16, 1933 as the only son to Bernardo and Bertha Majalca. At the age of 17 he joined the U.S. Army serving as a medic in Korea. He was soon promoted to battalion surgeon, a move that changed the direction of his life. Seeing so much pain and suffering during the battles he witnessed, ignited a passion for healing. He spent the rest of his life on a quest for understanding the human body and how to heal it.
In 1957 he graduated from Los Angeles City College with a Pre-Medical Degree. As a result of his Korean experience he was then recruited to consult in Saudi Arabia for the treatment of Bedouin tribes. He also served as a medical consultant to American, Korean and Saudi Corps of Engineers.
1979 – 1983 Bernardo graduated from the Guadalajara Medical School as an MD. He then went to Munich, Germany to study Alternative Medicine until 1986. In 1986 he began Preventive Medical Research. His objective was to research the published medical literature and look for the missing links for a cure for cancer with alternative therapies. In 1991 he received his N.D. degree from Clayton School of Natural Healing. From that time on he actively treated many patients with Naturopathic methods that succeeded where traditional methods failed. He was known to say “God gave us the earth, plants and seeds, not the AMA and the FDA”. Bernardo never stopped researching. His passion for helping his patients was always his priority, even while in the hospital he was directing treatment and was asking about them.
Bernardo had great compassion for people; he would buy dinner for veterans if he saw a soldier in a restaurant. He was also known to see someone begging on the street and bring them food or literally give them his coat if it was cold.
Bernardo was a member of Eastlake Community Church and loved God. He lived his walk out by the fruit he produced - compassion, love and respect. “For grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them”. Eph 2:8-10 Bernardo believed his life should be a reflection of God’s grace and mercy.
Bernardo is survived by his loving wife Rhonda, daughters Kathleen Martinez and Bonnie Vickers, three grand children and his twin sister Anna as well as several nieces and nephews and best friends Paul Moller and Robert Dawson. He was preceded in death by his parents and sisters Eugenia and Andrea. There will be a private family memorial service at a later date but in lieu of flowers donations can be made to Father Joe’s, a local school for education or any Veteran’s related charity.
