Alternative Health Care Costs


Alternatives to health care costs are included in this series on alternative income and residences.

For several years Merri and I lived and worked with this Taita Yatchak and his apprentices.  We lived as they did, without electricity, hot water or even a roof over our heads at night. We took all the shamanic lessons and one lesson was for abundance.  The Yatchak used to say visualize Golden Orange… the color of abundance.  That is why we chose this color for our website so you are gazing at the frequency of abundance each day.

Here are three health care alternative tips that can bring you great savings because health care costs are one of the average family’s greatest expense and these health care costs are rising!

Alternative Health Care Tip #1:  Immerse yourself in sunrises and sunsets.

I start the day in the sunrise and end the evening observing the sunset over our lake.

See why below.

First, let’s sum up Western health care… poor results…high costs.   The article below suggests that this poor combination will probably grow worse.

A September 2011 Foxnews article by Doug McKelway entitled “Survey Says “Obama’s Health Care Act Partially Increased Costs for Americans” says:  U.S. President Barack Obama singing the Health Care Reform bill in Washington, D.C. 

The signature legislation of the Obama Administration, the Affordable Care Act, came under damaging assault Wednesday from a Kaiser Family Foundation survey that found it has already partially contributed to increasing health care costs.

The Kaiser survey helps to shed some light on why so few employers are hiring, as health care costs for employers are spiraling upwards.

The survey found that insurance premiums rose by 9 percent in 2011. Healthcare costs for a single worker went up on average from $5,049 to $5,429, and for a family, costs rose from $13,770 to $15,073, on average.

The survey also found that some provisions of the Affordable Care Act already in place — including the allowance for young people up to 26 years of age to remain on their parents insurance policy — contributed to 20 percent of that increase.

But other factors are also contributing to the rising costs of health care. They include the prices of new technologies, research and development for new prescription drugs and the proliferation of chronic diseases like diabetes.

The aging of the baby boom generation is also placing a tremendous strain on the health care system, as baby boomers have begun qualifying for Medicare this year. The survey found that with better treatments and drugs, they may live longer than previous generations and impose huge costs on the system as they age.

Health care prices are rising plus the type of health care generally endorsed in the West does not encourage increased intelligence, energy, wellness, vitality and positive energy… which are all requirements for prosperity in a rapidly changing world.

Perhaps we should not depend on the establishment to upgrade our health care.  Many of us need or desire alternatives.

Hence Health Tip #1… get into the sunrises and sunsets. Our senses form us and the sense of sight is vital to the balance of our health.  The frequencies we call light are incredibly important to our health and well being.

The website www.americanacupuncture.com  explains this when it says:  BODY AFFECTED BY COLOR

Light affects every living cell in your body. It is dominated by longer wavelengths than daylight and can disturb your hormonal balance. Stress-like reactions are caused by this artificial light, especially if it’s glaring or flickering.

Body effects of light

Natural solar sunlight has a profound effect on your body. Without light there would be no life. Our development occurred under the constant influence of solar light which affects every living cell in your body from your skin to your light-sensitive eye. We are all affected by the distribution of light, which changes between day and night, winter and summer.

Constant lack of exposure to sunlight causes weakening of the body’s immune system, increases stress, and fatigue. Ordinary window glass absorbs essentially all the biologically active ultraviolet spectra and there is no ultraviolet light emitted. When light contains infrared energy it penetrates the skin, increases circulation and vasodilation of the blood vessels.

Natural light sends signals, by way of the hypothalamus to the autonomic nervous system, to respond to environmental changes. It affects the production of hormones throughout your entire endocrine system that is influenced by your pituitary gland. The pineal gland is involved in the production and secretion of the hormone melatonin. Both the pineal and pituitary glands control your entire endocrine system, releasing hormones, and control your entire body chemistry. Students who stay in school the entire day without outside exposure, have increased hyperactive behavior. These artificial lights also cause stress, and the release of increased cortisone.

Your biological clock keeps time with sunrise and sunset. Melatonin, produced by your pineal body, regulates its activity via the pineal gland, triggered by the light through your eyes. Environmental illumination controls this rate of melatonin synthesis. Melatonin is turned off during the day under sunlight and released at night. By extending our artificial light three hours before dawn and three hours after dusk results, results in increased depression.

There is an entire discipline devoted to using sunlight for health and spirituality during sunrise and sunset called Suryayog.

Surya means “sun” and ‘yog’ means to merge. Hence, suryayog means to merge with the sun (universal energy)- becoming one. Using the sun and its vast cosmic energies one can change, arrange, reduce, remove, balance, and organize the chemical, bioelectric and biomagnetic powers in one’s body.

The changes that sunlight brings in the ACGT of the DNA regulate human behavior in his perfect human frequency and chemical consciousness. This makes a human being natural in his conscious stage.  ACGT are the four nucleic acid bases that make up DNA. A – Adenine… T – Thymine… C – Cytosine and G, Guanine. These four nucleic acids make up ourgenetic code, or DNA.

Alternative Health Care Tip #2:  Try Magnesium. Merri and I have lived and studied for decades with great healers steeped in ancient wisdom on how to have good natural health.  We try to integrate the knowledge we learned in a practical Western way… every day and incorporate our experience into all of our seminars and courses.  To us… wealth and good health are inseparable… integral parts of the whole.

Sometimes readers report incredible results and their health gain benefits outweigh the other parts of the course.

In a recent message about natural health our webmaster wrote:   What turned out to be sciatica rippled spasms of excruciating pain from my lower back down my right leg to my calf, Achilles tendon and toes through day and night. It was agonizing and grated on my nerves worse than toothache. Or childbirth. (Perhaps.)

I tried massage, yoga and a local chiropractor, none of which helped. And I was now starting to take NSAIDs daily just to keep the pain at bay which I didn’t like.

Fortunately, Merri Scott saw me wince as I sat down for dinner one evening at a recent family reunion.

“Sciatica,” I said.

“Try Magnesium. Let me remember what else could work.”

That evening Merri emailed me this note: “B-1, B-12, B-6 – taken by themselves. And all around good B Vitamin complex. To make sure that the B vitamins bind, you need magnesium. I like Natural Calm in crystal form. This means you take it in very warm water before you go to bed and work on it to move up as much as you can and then back off when it causes a runny stool.

“Add these together and you’ve got a permanent release from stress as well as stress buildup, which brings on so many things…such as sciatica.A B-12 shot right into the beginning spot of the pain (usually on the buttocks) will stop the pain instantly but only the continual use of B vitamins plus magnesium will prevent its return.  You don’t need the shot and although I wouldn’t take it, perhaps some would benefit instantly by it.”

I started taking Natural Calm immediately. 4 days later I woke after a full night’s sleep with no pain. I’ve continued to take Natural Calm daily and am now taking B vitamins.

I get the occasional twinge if I’ve been driving for more than a few hours or after a day sitting in my office but the excruciating pain I experienced for weeks has completely passed and I’m amazed at the results this. Thank you Merri!

Some readers who read this gave it a try and had great results.

One reader shared this:  Dear Gary, For eight years I suffered sciatica due to a car accident. A recent newsletter mentioned Merri providing one of your guests magnesium and vitamin B to alleviate a similiar problem.I have been using the same supplements for a month.The sciatica is completely healed. Thank you.
Best Regards

Another wrote:   Happy new year to you. Thanks for the quick response. I have attended your tours, courses, and events because I place a premium on learning and health.  My energy level has increased since the last Mt Dora event and I would not want to go backwards. As always, thanks for your insight and wisdom.

Notes like this make all our efforts so rewarding!  We look forward to hopefully help readers learn more about alternative methods of health care.

Here is Alternative Health Tip #3.  Massage your hands, ears and feet with essential oils.  Merri and I use products produced by the Swiss Gibro laboratory and distributed by Phytobiodermie in the USA.  Almost every night night we massage each others hands and feet using their 100% natural origin massage oils either Zen or Chi Yang.   This helps us sleep well and helps balance our system in numerous ways.

Phytbiodermie energetic skin care products.

We have enjoyed this healthy activity with our entire family for years and when the children visit it is a family tradition… sitting… sharing… and massaging one another’s feet.   This goes way beyond the oil… this sharing and touching… but the oils touching the skin alone, even if one massages one’s own feet, provide a great energetic and balancing boost.

Even alone when touched or massaged, the skin releases a cornucopia of healing chemicals that provide health-promoting effects on the body. This feels good, plus regular massage and loving touch detoxifies, improves circulation, calms the mind, and enhances the immune system.

Giving yourself a daily massage with pure essential oil based massage oils can bee healing as well as enjoyable.

Pure oils and this process activate the body’s inner pharmacy and slows the aging process.

You can massage your entire body or if times does not permit, just the feet, ears and hands.

See how Merri and I use three balancing massage oils from Phytobiodermie to enhance positives and neutralize negatives of an active day.

Jon Canas CEO of Phystobiodermie explains the balancing aspect in his book “Energetic Skincare, Naturally” that says: The body is not simply matter (fluids and solids), but also vital energy (prana, chi, ki). It provides vitality and intelligent information throughout our body. That flow needs to stay balanced. The body is an energetic network interconnecting all parts through pathways (acupuncture meridians), energetic centers (chakras) and energy fields. As a result, our skin—the largest organ of the body—is a reflexive organ providing telltale signs of what is going on within our body. That is why “Beauty is Health Made Visible!” (*) and that proper skincare is a key element in achieving and maintaining wellness.

Excerpt from the book Energetic Skincare, Naturally! : “The skin as a vital organ cannot be excessively stripped, mechanically or with acids, injected with chemicals, cut, stretched and sewn, without consequences. Likewise, what you eat, drink, breathe, and how you exercise your body, or not, will have consequences on your health as much as on your skin. Skincare is caring for your entire body. That is why it is truly a holistic proposition. Anything else is a shortcut with potentially undesirable consequences.”

Learn Spanish in Three Days

Learn Spanish in Three Days ONLINE

The Learn Spanish in three day course is now available online.

Read below to see why we are offering our Super Spanish course online for the first time.

Speaking Spanish is a huge benefit on its own.  You can become one of the rare North Americans who can get along in Spanish speaking countries.  You can be one of the special people who can communicate with 10 million non-English speakers in the USA.  Spanish is the second most used language in the USA.  There are more Spanish speakers than speakers of Chinese, French, German, Italian, Hawaiian, and the Native American languages combined.  According to the Census Bureau, Spanish is the primary language of nearly 50 million people in the US.  This is the largest Spanish-speaking community outside of Mexico. Only half of these speakers also speak English “very well,” and 19% do not speak Spanish at all.

You can tap into all this potential when you speak Spanish.  Yet there are more benefits.

An article in England’s leading newspaper, the Telegraph, entitled “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism” (1) sum up the biggest benefit of learning a second language and increased intelligence.  The article says: “Learning a foreign language is more than just a boost to your CV or handy for traveling.  It will make you smarter, more decisive and even better at English.  Physiological studies have found that speaking two or more languages is a great asset to the cognitive process.  The brains of bilingual people operate differently than single language speakers, and these differences offer several mental benefits.”

The article then explains studies that show seven cognitive advantages gained from learning a foreign language.

#1:  You become smarter
#2:  You build multitasking skills
#3:  You stave off Alzheimer’s and dementia
#4:  Your memory improves
#5:  You become more perceptive
#6:  Your decision-making skills improve
#7:  You improve your English

Does it sound impossible to learn Spanish in three days?  Yes, it is impossible when you try to learn Spanish in the old, traditional way.

Though you may choose to take more time using this course to learn Spanish, thousands of our readers have learned at our Spanish courses.

There is a scientific method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books that create educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun.   This course works because it is education without stress!

This method was created and refined by the Bulgarian educational master, Georgi Lozanov, who transformed the entire Soviet educational system to such a degree that this third world country beat the USA into space.

Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside of Bulgaria who were allowed to be taught this system in the early 70s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for  four decades. It was a delight!

Merri and I began integrating these techniques with other shamanic and educational tactics we had gained in our global travels and then applied them to teach Spanish in three days.

The course has been proven again and again by the thousands who have used this system.  You can read a few of the many raves we have received from delegates who have learned from the Super Thinking Spanish course we created.

Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.

One delegate from St. Louis wrote:  Hi Gary,  Just ended forty-five years in dentistry last week, and I’m on to a new career.  What is my new career?  Still formulating, but the eye -opening,mind expanding Super-Spanish course last weekend in St. Louis surely shows me the opportunity exists to expand my horizons.

Besides having a lot of nice people to learn our new language; the methods Merri and you developed proved to be just what you said they would be.  We all and I in particular relaxed our way to new learning.  I feel so very comfortable with the basis of my new language skills that I know I will be spitting out great Spanish sentences by the time I reach Ecuador in October.  Last year I spent six weeks in Ecuador and now I plan on conversing with the people.

Today’s excerpt of your newsletter really hit home. You do what you say you will. There are no surprises or hidden sales tricks. The only tricks are beneficial to our learning.  Thank you for a wonderful experience that I was quite unable to grasp how you would pull it off.  You did, however, and I look forward to other courses that you offer, and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially.  Best regards, Denis Molloy.

Another wrote about the Super Spanish course:   Buenos Dias, here is a testimonial for Super Thinking-Super Spanish.  Please feel free to use all or part in promotions for the course.  In addition, you may give my email address to any prospect “on the fence” about enrolling.  Yesterday, in Cotacachi, Ecuador, I finished Super Spanish.  I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.

After three days, I can speak Spanish in complete sentences. In simple conversations, such as buying groceries or ordering a meal, I can make myself understood. I think that’s incredible!

Although I am far from the competence level of a native speaker, I feel I’ve taken a giant step forward in learning Spanish so that I can experience the people and culture of Ecuador.  The foregoing benefits would have more than justified the time and money I invested in Super Spanish.  And learning some Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course.

Prior to leaving the USA, I had felt for some time that the pace of life there was unhealthy for me (and for most people) and I did nothing about it.

I’ve thought about the pace issue during the course.  One of the key elements Merri Scott designed into Super Spanish is placing the student in the optimal state for learning.  In class, the past three days, I’ve been re-introduced to guided journeys and introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music (www.sundaybaroque.org).  What a blessing! I’m inclined to make one or both a daily part of my life.   Rob Christi.  Cotacachi, Ecuador

Another attendee from a course wrote:   “I took this incredible class a few weeks ago, and I would like to tell anyone that is interested, that it is an amazing three days of learning with lots of laughs included. You leave everyday wanting to learn more and are so excited to do so.

“Other Spanish classes and tutoring made us feel like it would take forever to get to the point where we could put it into practice, but this method gave us a more fluent use for everyday life almost immediately AND the confidence to use it.  It is a fantastic way to show people how much they know and give confidence to learn and use Spanish creating a momentum.

“They made learning Spanish easy and fun in a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.  I would definitely recommend this course.  Even if you know some Spanish, this helps make it easier because of the less stress that no verb conjugations gives you.  This gives you more confidence in yourself to try and speak it more.

 “The stress free atmosphere and tons of interaction and participation were very conducive to learning.  The relaxation techniques alone are worth the price.  The fact that I can now feel more comfortable conversing in Spanish with my new friends and neighbors is priceless.  Muchas, muchas gracias.”

“I loved the relaxed environment.  I picked up quite a lot of new vocabulary.  I found this course very informative about how the language works, how I can make sentences and understand others better!  Muchas Gracias!  I had a call from Telcel (the local phone company) after our second class and I was able to speak and understand them for the first time. Despacio (meaning slowly) … a great word!  Everyone should take this course before they pick up bad habits.”

“I liked how simply the course was organized and the positive attitude about learning.  Thank you so much for helping me to learn Spanish!”

“I liked the laid back yet professional approach.  I highly recommend this new, relaxing method of learning Spanish,  I feel a lot more confident in the delivery of my words and sentences. It was taught in an excellent and very professional way.

“It was a very enjoyable class.”

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music in the learning process.  At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  Merri Scott was among just a few who learned directly from Lozanov.

The second tactic uses 17 unique lessons to provide Spanish fluency in a short time.   Let me prove to you how this tactic works by teaching you hundreds of Spanish words in less than 30 seconds.

Here is the proof.

“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently.  For example action is accion, education-educacion, manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”

There you have it.  How long did it take you to read the sentence?  You now know hundreds of Spanish words that you will never forget.

See examples of the words you already know below.

How long would have taken you to memorize all those words?  How soon would you have forgotten them?

This is just one of seventeen Spanish lessons in the course.

The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.

Then, the third lesson teaches almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

The fourth lesson shows how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds).  This simple lesson leaves a person sounding like a Spanish professor without ever conjugating a verb.

Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything desired in Spanish.

Lesson six gives valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples the Spanish capacity with three words for “yesterday,” “now” and “tomorrow”.

By the end of three days you feel comfortable speaking Spanish.

Plus the system is Impro-Dynamic.  This means your Spanish keeps getting better even though you do not seem to be studying… practicing… or speaking Spanish.

I was amazed by this as I traveled back and forth from the USA to Ecuador.  The longer I was away from Ecuador… the better my Spanish became.  My second language was automatically improving The self improving feature comes because you learn to create Spanish sentences rather than remember them.  The portion of the brain that creates is more powerful than the portion that recalls.  When your mind creates something… it owns it!  You do not have to remember .

During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know .  

You then learn how to create Spanish sentences from these words.

Throughout the course you learn how to pronounce the sentences you create.

When the course ends… the mind keeps working… and creating… so next time you begin to speak Spanish you’ll be surprised .  You improve even though you have not actively worked on your lingual skill.

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we are testing an online beta program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.   This is a beta test and is available only this week, June 5 to 11, at the highly reduced price of $79.

I’ll be in touch personally via email with each person who signs up for this course to see how it works or what is required to make it better.  Once this test is complete, we plan to offer the program on a larger scale and at a much higher price.

The course has our, full satisfaction or money back, guarantee.  Try Super Spanish for 60 days.  If not fully satisfied, simply let us know for a full refund.

Here are more testimonials from previous Super Spanish Courses.

Maggie wrote: It didn’t really seem possible that we would be speaking and understanding Spanish in only 3 days but the course made it happen in a very supportive learning environment.  I would highly recommend this course for anyone wishing to learn “practical Spanish”.  The teaching methods, use of relaxation, the use of native Spanish speakers for pronunciation and the teachers themselves who were approachable and helpful and always positive made this a very valuable class.

This course improved my self confidence in my ability to learn and retain a language.  It was presented with genuine enthusiasm, great energy and the style of learning is very effective. Gracias!  It was a great experience.

Nadine wrote: “Just spent the last 3 days in the most wonderful learning environment learning Spanish.  What an amazing learning experience!!  First day out of class and I could not stop thinking in Spanish WOW!!  I am amazed by how much I learned, retained and how much more is showing up now that I am out of class.  And the best part is THERE WAS NO STUDYING!! Indeed this is Super Thinking!!!  I would highly recommend this to anyone that has ever had a desire to learn another language or learn anything in record time.

And a few days after that ….  As I went through my day, just hanging out with my son, I could see myself starting to think in Spanish.  At first I thought it was amusing but as it continued and increased I thought “My goodness this is really remarkable amazing” It was really an effortless unfolding.  I wasn’t at any point “trying” to think in Spanish, just words I knew would fly across the screen in my mind.  And then this afternoon, my son cuddled up on the couch to watch some cartoons on his ipad and was watching Peppa Pig in Spanish…hmm coincidence?  I think not, I’m radiating Spanish so much that my son is being influenced!  Thanks a million again.  This weekend the best learning experience of my life!!

If you have ever had a desire to learn Spanish this is the way to do it!  By the end of the first day I had more confidence and more practical ability than I had from any previous courses I had taken.  It was fun and relaxed and full of laughter.  You will leave this class excited to use what you have learned.  Rather than leaving overwhelmed with how much you have yet to learn and master, you are equipped with the knowledge and know how to go out and communicate as well as the excitement to do it!”

Gary noted:  “The whole approach is positive and conducive to learning at a level that benefits ALL participants.  It is not intimidating and does not set up a pass/fail atmosphere.  The presenters are terrific and the results unbelievable.  It was relaxed, informal, friendly and effective.”

Twila said:  “This class provided a very refreshing and relaxed way of learning.  The atmosphere felt very safe to say the words you were practicing.  I learned a lot in a way that will make it easy to apply.  Starting with conversation is way more fun.  How quickly you can learn!  It was a great group, great instructors and great stories.

The atmosphere in the classroom was so relaxed that learning Spanish felt like a breeze and not like a painful task.  The relaxation exercises are really conducive to language learning.  We learned A LOT in a short time and it was fun and the environment was non-threatening.”

Brigitte sent this:  “Buenos Dias, Suzanne. su clase de espanol es excelente! Muchas Gracias!  
I have already done what you suggested and went into the program listening to the music and going over the lessons.  I know: Repetition……reinforcement…..thinking in the new language….it’s all part of it.  I loved your course and will certainly recommend it to friends.  Who knows….I might feel the urge and have the opportunity to repeat it at your beautiful place in Puerto Aventuras…..Quien sabe? Hasta otro dia y saludos a su familia.”

Marie wrote:  “I would highly recommend this course.  The amount covered in 3 days is amazing!  All with no stress.  The correlation lessons and pronunciation practice has greatly reduced my anxiety to go out and use my Spanish.  I really enjoyed the whole process and thank you for the take away tools.”
