April 16, 1933 – October 5, 2010
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.

I am so blessed that I had the privelage to be able to see you one last time in the hospital. You were still being a doctor even while you were in bed and sick.
When no one there just me and you and the nurse, I layed my hand on you and prayed over you,I know you are with your father God in heaven and all of our other family members. You were and are an amazing person with a great personality and a huge heart that cared so much for people, because of you my family has always seeked alternative medicine and will continue to do so. You have been there for me and my family always, I will now continue to be there for your precious Rhonda, Uncle Carlos I love you so much. I will share all of the cds on cancer to my friends and collegues in your memory and legacy...many many kisses my sweet Uncle Carlos

Dr. Bernardo cured my atrial fibrillation naturally. We never met. Via telephone and snail mail it worked. God bless the great Bernardo. I know I will meet him someday. Dave Wood, Indiana

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."
It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Words truly cannot convey the depth of loss with the passing of our dear and trusted Dr. Bernardo. His beauty of spirit and love for others was always evident even in the flashes of "straight talking" discussions. He knew how to "tell it like it is" with out fear of retaliation to let the truth be known - a refreshing quality of bravery. His leadership and generosity guided my path and the paths of countless others in all walks of life. The world is very much a better place for the contribution of his life on this Earth. Truly, to know him is to love him, and this will never change. I am at an absolute loss for how I will miss him as a friend and the part I played as a minor-partner supporter against the wiles of cancer through him.
Amusedly, I coined a phrase regarding him as the "Cappone of Cancer", when I would see him dressed in a suit, tie and fedora, because he was a champion against cancer and other major health concerns, by-passing the American Governmental prohibitions which tie the hands of so many expert tried-and-true healers such as Dr. Bernardo. He was faithful to get the job done and elevate the hope and faith of his patients. I know that his beautiful, generous and highly capable wife Rhonda will continue his expert healing legacy.
Just when I thought I was a mere business associate...
As a result of Dr. Bernardo being open to benefiting his patients through a new liquid supplement, I was able to see a simple business association quickly become a dream come true support to a great humanitarian in his expertise against a fellow enemy. He made ALL the difference. Always True. With Love, Pamela Shurilla

To my dear Father, We can't begin to say how large our loss is without you. You were a man ahead of your time. A world traveler, a medic who served his Country in Korea. A pharmacuetical repreresentative, a humanitarian. A person who hated to see unjust things happen to good people. You loved people and people loved you. You learned about how nutrition could help heal people again. I will miss our phone calls. My kids say " how come Grandpa had to go?, I tell them that the Lord needs another angel to watch over us. That now he has a special mission in Heaven." Daddy , I will be forever grateful that you loved me so much that no matter where you were in the world you would always came back to tell us how special we were to you. We love you! Rest in Peace., Love, Kathleen Paul,Kyle and Kayla
