Through his scholar years, he developed a taste for martial arts, which won him championships. This new passion allowed him to learn about alternative treatments like acupuncture.
Valdes was the only physician willing to apply such methods in conjunction with traditional medicine and was awarded for his research in Abel Santamaria Hospital. In 1988 he graduated medical school in a time where drugs were scarce in the country. This situation allowed him to practice alternative medicine.
In 1996 he relocated to the USA where he worked as a technician in pathology for a dermatology firm in Orlando, FL. Once established, he decided to re-take his passion. He received his degree in acupuncture in the state of Florida in 2011.
