Yuma "Dr. Yew" Bellomee was raised between Bronx and Mount Vernon, New York. It has always been said, by family and community members alike, that he possesses "an old soul", referring to his seemingly wise and precocious ways as a child. Brought up in ethnically cultural surroundings, Yuma found his first calling in the form of music, when he gravitated towards the West African djembe drum at the age of 9 months. Along with music and culture, he also realized the importance of wellness at an early age. With natural intuition, he would often take on the responsibility of trying to awaken health consciousness within family members, or to motivate them to make better lifestyle choices. Therefore, it was nothing but a natural fit when his father introduced him to the master traditional healers of the community, who would turn out to further mold him into his purpose. In addition to feeding him their guidance and knowledge of medicinal herbs, foods, nutrition, etc., they also inspired him to learn independently and apply his information and experience to help the mental, physical, and spiritual state of himself, his family, and his community, to which he is dedicated. To accomplish this task, he combines a variety of traditional healing modalities with current information, logic, divine inspiration, and love. Yuma is now certified as a Holistic Health Consultant through the International Board of African Thinkers, Traditional Priests, Priestesses, and Religion, Inc., and was also registered as a Naturopath through the Health Professional Licensing Administration of Washington, D.C. in 2009.
