Longevity Savings


A study at Harvard, USC, Columbia and the University of Illinois found that researching longevity rather than disease could dramatically change the cost of health care and save almost 1.5 trillion dollars a year.

The same research showed that continuing to study diseases will not save nor increase the number of healthy older adults.

The researchers found that a disabled life expectancy is rising faster than total life expectancy. Longevity has risen but longevity in good health.  Those dependent on ongoing medical care are rising rapidly.

This should change but probably won’t.  The 1.5 trillion a year that would be saved goes into the pockets of big pharma and such.  They use a lot of that money too influence what gets studied, and the focus is researching diseases that make money, not how to improve quality of life and longevity.

That’s the way of the world, but that does not mean that is the way we as individuals have to be.

Consequently Merri and I have studied how to have natural good health and energy wherever we have traveled in the world.

Based on this we have refined our nutrition, exercise and purification using tips we have picked up over more than 40  years of global travel.

Several of the tools we use include, infrared sauna, rebounder, food supplements and essential oils.

We obtain all of our essential oils from our friends, Candace and John Newman and this is the best time of the year to stock up when they have their anniversary sale.

Stocking up now is even more important as Candace and John are selling this business. I have been buying gallons of some of their products too make sure I lock in low prices and guarantee I’ll have these great health benefits for some time to come.

You can see full details of their final anniversary sale here.

The Greatest Fear


FDR said it succinctly.  “The Only Thing We Have to Fear Is Fear Itself”.  Anxiety is one of the greatest problems we face.  Nervousness  can cause us to invest poorly.  Fear stops us from turning our passions into profit with our own micro business.  Worry is bad for our health.  Despite these facts, anxiety is the most  prevalent class of psychiatric disorder in the general population.

Ecuador-longevity

Orange blossoms in our grove.  Springtime in Florida offers orange blossoms and a solution to anxiety.

Credible studies shows that essential oils can reduce anxiety.

Orange essential oil was used on patients in an intensive care unit the day after open-heart surgery. Patients showed a significant psychological benefit from the aromatherapy.

Orange aroma was tested in a dental office.  The smell appeared to have a relaxant effect. Patients had less anxiety, better moods, and more calmness compared to a control group with no oranges.

Researchers used orange with graduate students in anxiety-producing situations.  The orange reduced the anxiety and the student volunteers felt more energetic.   Read about this research at Nutritionfacts.org. (1)

Merri and I get our organic orange essential oil from our friend Candace Newman, the Oil Lady.  One of the greatest pleasures in Merri’s and my life is springtime here at the grove…when the oranges are in bloom.  We can’t send you a grove, but hope that you will enjoy the sweet aroma of these blossoms with Candace’s Essential Orange Oil.

Essential Oil Deodorant for Natural Health

Here is why I am excited about the essential oil deodorant Merri and I use.

Merri and I lived and worked with this Ecuador Yatchak for seven years.

ecuador shamans

This photo was taken after a purification ceremony at a sacred spring.

One of the main ways this shaman helped restore our health was through purification.  He had us walk in mountain mists.  “The negative ions in the mists attach to free radicals and purify the skin to cleanse us from the inside out,” he said.  Another purification was of our blood.  He fed us herbs, minerals and a low calcium diet.  There was almost no dairy served.  We used watermelons, pineapple and sweats to purify.

One of the most important lessons gained is that the first rule of good purification is “Avoid getting impurities in your body in the first place!”

Everyday living bombards most of us with all types of toxicity, from the air we breath, to the water we drink, even the receipts at the supermarket may be toxic.  Merri and I compensate for this by taking care in what we eat, drink and especially breathe and put on our skin.  The fastest way for any element good or bad to get into the blood stream is via the lungs and the skin.

Now there is a better way to replace a toxin with a purifier.

Since it is difficult for most of us to avoid toxicity in the West, this message looks at a longevity alternative and begins by showing how in the early 2000s, due to strict FDA  regulations, the government has approved a product that may encourage cancer, create dementia, Alzheimer’s and complicate kidney problems.

The FDA issued a final rule which said “over-the-counter (OTC) antiperspirant drug products are generally recognized as safe and effective and not misbranded as part of FDA’s ongoing review of OTC drug products”.  I suspect that part of this ruling was influenced by scientists with the Personal Care Products Council, the trade association that represents the cosmetic and personal care products industry.  They have claimed that “antiperspirants can be used with high confidence of their safety. They’ve been used for many years, and there’s no evidence that suggests a problem“.

Many people use over-the-counter antiperspirant drug products every day because almost everyone does.  That’s the way its seems like it has always been.  Is this wise or simply the massive repetition of an error?  We assume that the FDA exists to protect us, but must ask this question, “How much should we trust?”

The FDA’s claims of safety are not entirely correct, because antiperspirants contain aluminum. 

An article at Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment helps clarify the risks of placing aluminum under our arms every day. (2)  This article says of aluminum, a main ingredient in antiperspirants, “What’s it good for in humans? Simple answer: not very much.  Except for possible involvement in some enzymatic reactions, aluminum “has no known function in the human body.”   While there is little or no upside for aluminum in the body, there is a most definite downside: aluminum is a neurotoxin.

The Aluminum Downside

The Duke article (linked below) contains numerous links to a number of negative health effects, including impaired mental and motor function, Alzheimer’s and other brain diseases, and bone diseases.  It points out a number of questions about aluminum’s impact on human health and explains there is not much study on aluminum antiperspirants.  Then it says: So, while the FDA regulates antiperspirants as over-the-counter drugs and deems them safe, it hasn’t based its decision on a large body of work specifically examining these products.  So rather than a stamp of approval, FDA’s aluminum regulation seems more an indication that, given the ubiquitous nature of aluminum, exposure from antiperspirants isn’t believed to be unsafe.”

Antiperspirants and Disease:  It’s the Pits

In other words there’s no definitive answer.  There are links between aluminum and disease, yes.  There is a link to Alzheimer’s, dementia, diminished thinking and cancer but, no study provides specific proof of a direct link between antiperspirants and these problems.

We can see the risks of aluminum more clearly at a different government source, the Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease Registry. (3)

This agency’s report on aluminum says: Workers who breathe large amounts of aluminum dusts can have lung problems, such as coughing or changes that show up in chest X-rays.  Some workers who breathe aluminum-containing dusts or aluminum fumes have decreased performance in some tests that measure functions of the nervous system.

Some people who have kidney disease store a lot of aluminum in their bodies.  Sometimes, these people developed bone or brain diseases that doctors think were caused by the excess aluminum.

Although aluminum-containing over the counter oral products are considered safe in healthy individuals at recommended doses, some adverse effects have been observed following long-term use in some individuals.

Studies in animals show that the nervous system is a sensitive target of aluminum toxicity.

Then there is the question of  parabens.

A health warning from Mercola.com (4) says:   99% of Breast Cancer Tissue Contained This Everyday Chemical (NOT Aluminum). Recent research found higher concentrations of parabens in the upper quadrants of the breast and axillary area, where antiperspirants are usually applied, suggesting they may contribute to the development of breast cancer.

The data from this latest study, the most extensive examination of parabens in human breast so far published, confirms previous work and raises a number of questions on the entire parabens, personal care product and human health debate, particularly relating to the source and toxicological significance of the paraben esters.

Merri and I have not used antiperspirants for decades.  We eliminate a potential toxicity and use purifying essential oils instead.  F

We mix tea tree with other essential oils in a base of organic jojoba oil and use this under our arms instead.

This essential oil formula acts like a deodorant and helps improve rather than decrease natural health. 

Let me begin by saying that essential oils have not been evaluated by the FDA as cures for any specific illness.  This product is not intended to diagnose, cure or prevent disease.  It simply a common sense approach to assume that putting organic, all natural essential oils under your arms is better for you then chemical laden deodorants and antiperspirants.

The essential oils in the formula are:

Tea Tree  (Melaleuca alternifolia) – broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity against bacteria, viruses, fungi. (The #1 First Aid Oil for skin infections and tissue issues of all kinds.)

Lavender (Lavandula augustifolia) – antiseptic, antimicrobial, deodorant, anti-inflammatory. This #1 Balancing Oil for the central nervous system is highly antiseptic.  Great for balancing skin bacteria and combating odors.

Lemon (Citrus limonene) – antimicrobial, antiseptic, astringent, antibacterial, tonic. The Oil of Sunshine to cleanse our skin, lift our spirits, and combat negative smells. Lemon is an exceptional antiseptic with a joyful aroma.

Geranium (Pelargonium roseum) – deodorant, fungicidal, antiseptic, antibacterial. The Soothing Oil for calming down skin irritations and our nervous system. The rose element in this Geranium is nurturing to our physical and emotional state … our whole sense of well-being.

Myrrh (Commiphora myrrha) – anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antiseptic, astringent, anti-fungal. An Oil of Antiquity renown for skin and wound care. Used in healing unguents of Ancient Egypt. Also known to instill tranquility and peaceful effects on many levels.

Use a purifier rather than a toxin and save at the same time.

You save first because you can also throw away expensive colognes, perfumes and face cremes as well as deodorants.  You save money as you gain a chance for better health.  Only one or two drops of each oil are required so a bottle goes a long way. One bottle lasts for a couple of months for me.  If you use it for the face as well… obviously it will go faster.

The price is already low, but during the sale the price is less than half that charged for 3 ounces of  women’s DERMAdoctor Total NonScents Brightening Antiperspirant.

More importantly this could offer a lifesaving savings.  According to answers.yahoo, the treatment cost for stage 3 non-hodgkin’s lymphoma can easily exceed $300,000 so cutting off  potential health problems at the pass can really make sense.

Merri and I love the refreshing smell and feel of this spray that eliminates the need for perfume, cologne and antiperspirants that may contain unhealthy chemicals.

We cleanse internally as well as explained below.

Beyond Chelation

Vitality Force provides a simple (and incredibly low cost) amino acid that can help improve cardiovascular systems, increase memory, improve vision, enhance vitality, expand energy and extend lifespan.

A delegate at one of our courses was a doctor in his eighties but who had the energy and looks of a much, much younger man.  When asked about his secret of youth he said his vitality was based on several factors.  A few of them you would expect, such as good diet, sufficient exercise and plenty of activity in a strong, purposeful life.  Then he explained another secret of his youth and energy: chelation.

This youthful doctor told us he had been running the largest I.V. chelation center in the United States from Hawaii. Hardening of the arteries is such a huge problem in our modern world that he was making a fortune.

Then, he said, he had learned about a vitamin-mineral formula that was so effective that he shut down his clinics and exclusively used this simple formula which he felt had better results than I.V. chelation therapy.

Years of research are behind this comprehensive cardiovascular nutritional supplement, designed to maintain and promote vascular health, mental and physical well being.

That client and doctor friend gave us a month’s supply of this formula.  He thought it would be excellent for us and would help us with traveling also.  Merri and I tried this product ourselves and felt better and better.

We have made it a point to take heart healthy supplements since.  We love the savings we enjoy with the mixed supplement we use.   It is so much less expensive than all the numerous other vitamins and minerals that we had been taking.  We actually were spending less!

The system we use is so convenient.  Everything is in one simple scoop of powder we take daily.  Especially when we travel we just bring along a packet for each day we are on the road.  No more loading up pill boxes or bringing bottles (or suitcases full of bottles) of vitamins and stuff.

As is so often the case when we like something we start talking about it and pretty soon, a batch of friends were taking Vitality Force and telling us great things about their experiences.  They reordered so much of it through that I decided to make it available to all my readers.

Let me begin by saying that Vitality Force has not been evaluated by the FDA.  This product is not intended to diagnose, cure or prevent disease and should only be taken as a food supplement.  Having said this, I share information about Vitality Force below.

This supplement combines over two dozen ingredients, known to have beneficial effects, into one total cardiovascular support program.

Vitality Force’s main ingredient is L-arginine.  Studies have shown that L-arginine is a precursor to nitric oxide, an important cardiovascular signaling molecule.

What is L-Arginine?

L-Arginine is the biological precursor of nitric oxide.

The medical establishment has known about the benefits of nitric oxide as nitroglycerine and amyl nitrite which creates a flood of nitric oxide have been used in medicine for over a century.

Nitric oxide is an important signal and effector molecule made by the blood vessels’ lining. The endothelium is exquisitely sensitive to the physical and chemical conditions inside our blood vessels. When the endothelium senses heart-healthy conditions, such as physical activity and low cholesterol, it releases more nitric oxide.  That’s good because nitric oxide expands the blood vessels, increasing blood flow and decreasing plaque growth and blood clotting.

In 1998, three research scientists won the Nobel Prize in medicine when they discovered the natural nitric oxide cycle in our cells.  Nitric oxide is essential to a vital natural cycle at the cellular level.  It is so  important in neuroscience, physiology, and immunology, that one year it was named “Molecule of the Year”.   Research into its function led to a Nobel Prize for discovering its importance as a cardiovascular signalling molecule. The nitric oxide cycle especially helps the heart.

Nitric oxide is the simple molecule that improves the flow of blood to the heart body and brain, It also increases energy and stamina, relieve  stress, strengthens the immune and digestive system, plus improves clarity of mind.  Nitric oxide improves the health of the inner wall of a blood vessel, keeps vessels pliable and elastic, dilates blood vessels keeping blood flowing smoothly, relax blood vessels, keep platelets and white blood cells calm and prevent them from sticking to the vessel wall, prevent oxidation, slow plaque growth, suppress atherosclerosis and melt away plaque that already exists.

There are many benefits from removing plaque from the body:

  1. Helps to prevent arteriosclerosis (Hardening of the arteries)
  2. Helps to rejuvenate your cardiovascular system
  3. Helps to improve conduction in all degrees of A-V heart block
  4. Helps increase American life expectancy
  5. Reduces blood pressure and blood cholesterol
  6. Improves circulation
  7. Improves vision and hearing
  8. Improves liver function
  9. Improves skin texture and tone
  10. Helps prevent abnormal cross linking of molecules that age tissue
  11. Helps to relieve symptoms of senility by increasing circulation to the brain
  12. Helps to relieve pain, hypoglycemia, phlebitis and scleroderma
  13. Dissolves fats in plaque lined arteries
  14. Helps make blood slippery and prevents abnormal blood clotting
  15. Helps to increase tissue oxygenation

Anti-Aging, Longevity, and Preventative Medicine are the Future!

With our knowledge of alternative medicine doubling every three years and our technology advancing exponentially, we are entering an age where we are able to probably turn our biological clock backwards!  Instruments are now in use that can measure the functioning of each of our physical organs and new high potency nutritional supplements, hormonal balancing, and advanced oral chelation products have become available which can enhance the functioning of our organs and help prevent heart attacks and fight many of the auto-immune and degenerative diseases that are plaguing modern society.

There is one more benefit.  That is the savings and convenience.  Vitality Force is much more than just an all natural solution for cardiovascular health.

The formula includes the highest quality arginine, vitamins, minerals, and other immune boosting ingredients. It works by dilating the blood vessels to allow more oxygen and nutrients to flow freely throughout the body.  This helps improve the  bio-availability of all nutrients and helps enhance your other supplements that you may already be taking.

I like the powdered form because research suggests that consuming liquid nutritional products provides significantly improved absorption, (80% vs. 20% from tablets).

Vitality Force supports:

* Cardiovascular health

* Healthy immune function

* Anti-aging properties

* Improved energy levels

*  Dilated blood vessels to deliver more oxygen and nutrients to muscles and the cardiovascular system

* Increased efficiency of oxygen utilization for energy production

* Enhanced numbers of mitochondria to actually produce energy

The Vitality Force formula includes:

  • L-Citrulline
  • Vitamin D3
  • Vitamin C
  • B1 (thiamine)
  • B2 (riboflavin)
  • B3
  • B5 (pantothenic acid)
  • B6 (pyridoxine)
  • B12 (methylcobalamin)
  • Folate
  • CoQ10
  • Omega 3
  • Resveratrol
  • Potassium
  • Chromium Polynicotinate
  • Magnesium
  • Selenium
  • Fulvic Minerals
  • AstraGin™
  • Fructooligo Saccharide
  • Stevia

I get all these ingredients in Vitality Force from one daily scoop of powder!  I take mine first thing each morning and can feel a big positive difference in my vitality.

The Ultimate Key to Vitality

Taking Vitality Force provides almost every vitamin and mineral that we were previously taking in separate form.

Merri and I have actually reduced our spending on vitamins and minerals.  The powder is tasty, easy to use and one container has a month’s supply, which at $44.95 makes this a very inexpensive way to get most of the vitamins and minerals you already take as you gain the chelation benefits.

Vitality begins with activity including physical activity.  Many factors in modern living inhibit our physical activity.  There is a lot of stress to maintain a lifestyle.  Modern conveniences like the computer, electricity and car make it easier not to exercise.  There is also a difficulty in obtaining vitamin filled and rich, healthy food.  All of this saps vitality and can lead to a negative health spiral.  We feel badly so we eat comfort food and sit.  This makes us feel worse and the negative spiral deepens.

One way to break bad habits and a negative health spiral is to generate more nitric oxide.

One way to generate more nitric oxide is simply by taking a scoop of Vitality Force each day!

Medicine is Dose


Medicine is dose.

We love the meandering creek on our farm.  This creek and the springs that create it provide us with fresh water year round.

However, at times this gentle stream turns into a destructive torrent, rutting roads, eroding land and it can even wipe out a bridge or two.

Here is an excerpt from Candace’s latest report:  Plants and essential oils have always provided mankind with natural substances to support health and well-being on all levels. In our modern day growing use of essential oils, education on safe and proper use is critical. The right essential oil in the right form provides all the positive benefits of true Aromatherapy with genuine and pure essential oils.

Learn three forms for use and many methods for using them, along with important safety guidelines. Create your own Aromatherapy plan to fit your lifestyle and goals for healthy living.

Essential oils are highly concentrated volatile liquids and are not safe to take internally without professional medical assistance. They are taught in medical schools in France and prescribed along with other medicines.

Using essential oils too strong for too long is where the line of toxicity can be crossed. This is different for everyone. The right oil at the right time along with the right dilution, method of use, and length of use are all important considerations.

a.    The wrong essential oil in the wrong strength put a baby in the hospital for 2 months.

b.    A person putting straight oregano essential oil in their mouth, burned their throat badly. They ended up in the emergency room and had to be put on a feeding tube.

Do not apply pure essential oils directly to the skin for more that spot work.

Example: Lavender by the drop on a burn (unbroken skin only) or Tea Tree by the drop on a bite or sting. Essential oils can burn and irritate the skin. Citrus, mints, and spice oils can be especially irritating and cause troublesome skin reactions.

First, do no harm. Go in lightly … you can always add more. Once it has been administered … it’s already in the skin and the system.

Essential oils assist us through transitions, protect our health, and celebrate life with our sense of smell. They can relieve stress, support a healthy immune system, and comfort the body and mind. Too much of a good thing … is no longer a good thing.

This is good advice for anything you do.  Moderation is still one of the most important disciplines we can develop to enhance our health and wealth.

L-Arginine is the biological precursor of nitric oxide.

The medical establishment has known about the benefits of nitric oxide as nitroglycerine and amyl nitrite which creates a flood of nitric oxide have been used in medicine for over a century.

Nitric oxide is an important signal and effector molecule made by the blood vessels’ lining. The endothelium is exquisitely sensitive to the physical and chemical conditions inside our blood vessels. When the endothelium senses heart-healthy conditions, such as physical activity and low cholesterol, it releases more nitric oxide.  That’s good because nitric oxide expands the blood vessels, increasing blood flow and decreasing plaque growth and blood clotting.

In 1998, three research scientists won the Nobel Prize in medicine when they discovered the natural nitric oxide cycle in our cells.  Nitric oxide is essential to a vital natural cycle at the cellular level.  It is so  important in neuroscience, physiology, and immunology, that one year it was named “Molecule of the Year”.   Research into its function led to a Nobel Prize for discovering its importance as a cardiovascular signalling molecule. The nitric oxide cycle especially helps the heart.

Nitric oxide is the simple molecule that improves the flow of blood to the heart body and brain, It also increases energy and stamina, relieve  stress, strengthens the immune and digestive system, plus improves clarity of mind.  Nitric oxide improves the health of the inner wall of a blood vessel, keeps vessels pliable and elastic, dilates blood vessels keeping blood flowing smoothly, relax blood vessels, keep platelets and white blood cells calm and prevent them from sticking to the vessel wall, prevent oxidation, slow plaque growth, suppress atherosclerosis and melt away plaque that already exists.

There are many benefits from removing plaque from the body:

  1. Helps to prevent arteriosclerosis (Hardening of the arteries)
  2. Helps to rejuvenate your cardiovascular system
  3. Helps to improve conduction in all degrees of A-V heart block
  4. Helps increase American life expectancy
  5. Reduces blood pressure and blood cholesterol
  6. Improves circulation
  7. Improves vision and hearing
  8. Improves liver function
  9. Improves skin texture and tone
  10. Helps prevent abnormal cross linking of molecules that age tissue
  11. Helps to relieve symptoms of senility by increasing circulation to the brain
  12. Helps to relieve pain, hypoglycemia, phlebitis and scleroderma
  13. Dissolves fats in plaque lined arteries
  14. Helps make blood slippery and prevents abnormal blood clotting
  15. Helps to increase tissue oxygenation

Anti-Aging, Longevity, and Preventative Medicine are the Future!

With our knowledge of alternative medicine doubling every three years and our technology advancing exponentially, we are entering an age where we are able to probably turn our biological clock backwards!  Instruments are now in use that can measure the functioning of each of our physical organs and new high potency nutritional supplements, hormonal balancing, and advanced oral chelation products have become available which can enhance the functioning of our organs and help prevent heart attacks and fight many of the auto-immune and degenerative diseases that are plaguing modern society.

There is one more benefit.  That is the savings and convenience.  Vitality Force is much more than just an all natural solution for cardiovascular health.

The formula includes the highest quality arginine, vitamins, minerals, and other immune boosting ingredients. It works by dilating the blood vessels to allow more oxygen and nutrients to flow freely throughout the body.  This helps improve the  bio-availability of all nutrients and helps enhance your other supplements that you may already be taking.

I like the powdered form because research suggests that consuming liquid nutritional products provides significantly improved absorption, (80% vs. 20% from tablets).

Vitality Force supports:

* Cardiovascular health

* Healthy immune function

* Anti-aging properties

* Improved energy levels

*  Dilated blood vessels to deliver more oxygen and nutrients to muscles and the cardiovascular system

* Increased efficiency of oxygen utilization for energy production

* Enhanced numbers of mitochondria to actually produce energy

The Vitality Force formula includes:

  • L-Citrulline
  • Vitamin D3
  • Vitamin C
  • B1 (thiamine)
  • B2 (riboflavin)
  • B3
  • B5 (pantothenic acid)
  • B6 (pyridoxine)
  • B12 (methylcobalamin)
  • Folate
  • CoQ10
  • Omega 3

I get all these ingredients in Vitality Force from one daily scoop of powder!  I take mine first thing each morning and can feel a big positive difference in my vitality.

The Ultimate Key to Vitality

Taking Vitality Force provides almost every vitamin and mineral that we were previously taking in separate form.

Merri and I have actually reduced our spending on vitamins and minerals.  The powder is tasty, easy to use and one container has a month’s supply, which at $44.95 makes this a very inexpensive way to get most of the vitamins and minerals you already take as you gain the chelation benefits.

Vitality begins with activity including physical activity.  Many factors in modern living inhibit our physical activity.  There is a lot of stress to maintain a lifestyle.  Modern conveniences like the computer, electricity and car make it easier not to exercise.  There is also a difficulty in obtaining vitamin filled and rich, healthy food.  All of this saps vitality and can lead to a negative health spiral.  We feel badly so we eat comfort food and sit.  This makes us feel worse and the negative spiral deepens.

One way to break bad habits and a negative health spiral is to generate more nitric oxide.

One way to generate more nitric oxide is simply by taking a scoop of Vitality Force each day!

Sleep Better with Aromatherapy.


Sleep better with aromatherapy.  When Merri and I moved to Ecuador and lived and worked with a great healer for years, he told us there were three basics for having good health.  They were: eat right, work right and sleep right.

Ecuador Shamans

To enhance this point he built us this special cottage with a headboard made from an ancient sacred tree.

Science continues to confirm what that shaman knew about health and sleep.  There is a entire website by the Harvard Medical School (1) on the importance of sleep.

This site begins:  When we miss sleep in order to keep up with our 24/7 world, we pay a price with our ability to learn, our health and safety, and our quality of life.

One of the most recent and compelling explanations for why we sleep is based on findings that sleep is correlated to changes in the structure and organization of the brain. This phenomenon, known as brain plasticity, is not entirely understood, but its connection to sleep has several critical implications. It is becoming clear, for example, that sleep plays a critical role in brain development in infants and young children. Infants spend about 13 to 14 hours per day sleeping, and about half of that time is spent in REM sleep, the stage in which most dreams occur. A link between sleep and brain plasticity is becoming clear in adults as well. This is seen in the effect that sleep and sleep deprivation have on people’s ability to learn and perform a variety of tasks.

This is why I am pleased that our friend (and writer’s course delegate) Candace Newman has published a new report “Aromatherapy for Sleep” at Amazon.com.

Candace writes: Aromas you love can instantaneously change your brain chemistry and provide you with a night of sweet sleep!  Sleep is the time of restoration and renewal; it is the time we lay ourselves down to rest. The complexity of modern life makes it difficult to turn off our mental chatter at night.

Read about top essential oils for sleep. Learn simple and effective ways to create your own personal sleep routine. Sleep is paramount to brain, heart, body and mind health. These Aromatherapy recipes and ideas show you the way.

There are many ways to improve sleep including meditation, listening to certain types of Baroque music and exercise.  Another great way to have deeper more refreshing sleep  is aromatherapy.

Learn Super Spanish

Learn Spanish in Three Days ONLINE

The “Learn Spanish in Three Day Course” is now available online.

Learn Spanish in a day, or a week, month or any time frame that works for you.

I’m Gary Scott.  Over fifty years ago I started a business that has helped hundreds of thousands of subscribers learn about investing in Hong Kong (1960s and 1970s), Switzerland, London, Isle of Man (1970s and 1980s) and across Europe.  In the 1990s we took investors to Panama, Mexico and Ecuador.  That’s when we realized an incredible need for an easy way to learn Spanish.

See below how my wife Merri was able to create a program that allowed students to be speaking and understanding Spanish in just three days.

Thousands of subscribers have learned Spanish at our three day Super Spanish course.  These courses have been taught across the US, in Canada, Panama, Mexico, Ecuador, Uruguay and Spain.

Read below to see how and why we are now offering our Super Spanish course ONLINE for the first time.

Speaking Spanish as a second language has huge benefits.

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 English at all.

You become one of a leading few 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 (bolds are mine): “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.

You may choose to take more time using the ONLINE course to learn Spanish, but thousands of our readers have learned to speak Spanish in only three days 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!

A special method of learning (called Super Learning) was created and refined by the Bulgarian educational master, Georgi Lozanov.   Lozanov transformed the entire Soviet educational system to such a degree that this third world country beat the USA into space.

My wife 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 1970s.  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 students 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 to create Relaxed Concentration 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 was among just a few who learned directly from Lozanov.

gary scott super thinking session

Super Spanish relaxed concentration session.

You gain six valuable ONLINE Relaxed Concentration sessions in the online course that is delivered via the internet.

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.   This eliminates the need to memorize 99% of Spanish words.

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 created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.   The normal three day course fee is $499 ($749 for a couple).

The ONLINE course is available 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 ONLINE 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.”

Inhaling Natural Health


Inhaling Natural Health

Many aspects of modern life can throw our energy and health out of balance. Fortunately in our polarized existence, for every imbalance, there is an opposite that is a natural balance.

jewelplant

Jewelweed

Take, as an example, poison oak or ivy.  They are huge imbalances when you have the itch!

Jewelweed, grows right next to poison ivy and poison oak and is an effective natural herbal remedy for poison ivy and oak.

The crushed stems and leaves of this purple-spotted orange inch long flower rubbed on the contact point stops or reduces the rash especially if applied quickly.

The fastest way to give the body balance is through the skin and lungs.

I am about to release our latest series of reports. They are on shamanic secrets for longevity and health. Merri and I have had such good luck in life and business… in part because we  are always looking for new ways to serve… in part because we seek value and very much in part because for decades we have shown up almost every single day in a high energy mode and worked.

Now entering our 7th decade we remain in high gear.  We have not been in a hospital (except to visit others).  Well almost. Twice I have been in an emergency room…once when I attacked my chain saw with my knee and once when I tried to defy gravity from the height of as tree.   Hey, these were imbalances of enthusiasm… out in the woods having fun and in some ways. Plus some might say… “You can’t fix stupid!”

Otherwise we have not had a single hospital stay… nor a single prescription.  We  love what we do and rise early each morning ready to get to it with joy in our hearts and good energy in our bodies and soul.

I have a morning routine to balance my health which begins with essential oils.To me they are concentrated balancing intelligence.

Knowing the characteristics of each plant allows me to instantly apply forms of energy wisdom into my mind/body. What a way to start the day.

Merri and I get all our essential oils from our friend, Candace Newman… the Oil Lady. We shared a neighborhood for many years in Naples, Florida… then we moved to North Carolina and Ecuador… Candace to Colorado.

We  are delighted that now after many years  we are neighbors again as Candace and her husband John have moved to Central Florida!

Here is a note Candace recently sent about essential oils.

Happy Fall Aromas to you! I have great memories of “fall & leaf” smells as a child. Even the air is different as the energy shifts from the hot laboring summer to harvest time. It is my favorite time of year … and Thanksgiving is on its way in.

The benefits of Aromatherapy can be received and achieved by simple inhalation.  Our little pocket-size tin with four pure essential oil inhalers is our Fall Special. The Oil Lady® Survival Tin is about surviving and thriving with pure genuine aromas.

Aromatherapy Inhalers

With Aromatherapy proving to be one of the fastest growing “modalities” for Complementary, Alternative and Integrative Medicine … using them for inhalation is very easy to do with very effective results. Due to the nose-brain physiology, inhaling essential oils can effect not only the emotional-mental state, but also the physical tissue.

The comfort this provides goes beyond words.

Over the past several years, plastic aromatherapy inhalers have become very popular due to low cost and ease of use. Nothing wrong with that … it helps many people.

However, essential oils in a pure state interact with plastic, so over time … it would be best to inhale from an amber glass bottle.

This is why we have always offered our top 5 essential oils in tiny 4 ml amber glass bottles (smaller than your pinky finger). Keep this purse or pocket size gem with you.

The Art of Inhaling pure undiluted Essential Oils:

1. Take 5-7 DEEP breaths, close eyes & notice how you feel.
2. Alternate nostrils with each breath.
3. Direct Palm Inhalation: put 1 drop/tap of pure EO in your palm, rub palms together, cup nose, close eyes, and breathe.
4. Put 2 drops/taps on a cotton ball and give to another for direct inhalation.

Reasons for direct inhalation:

1. Ease of use … all you need is one little bottle.
2. Shifts emotional/mental state in less than a second.
3. Offers instant stress/anxiety relief and energy lift.
4. Offers immediate immune support in challenging environments (airplanes or crowded conference rooms).

Another option … we offer 5 pure essential oils in small 4 ml bottles is our self-care kit:  The Good Medicine Tin®.

You can order the full Good Medicine Tin from Candace.. a simple system for the therapeutic use of pure essential oils with a 12 page Guide Booklet. This is the ultimate home, self-care, and travel tin.

You receive five essential oils, plus Jojoba, and Lavender mist in an attractive white tin with 12 page Guide booklet and quick study in the lid.

With so many changes creating imbalances in our lives, we need every aid we can get to remain steady and balanced.  This is why we love starting every day with essential oils.

We teach how to use essential oils to unlock the creative process in our writer’s camps.  Candace will join us for the November 15,16,17 camp and speak on how to use these oils.  See details here.

Thousands of subscribers have learned Spanish at our three day Super Spanish course.  These courses have been taught across the US, in Canada, Panama, Mexico, Ecuador, Uruguay and Spain.

Read below to see how and why we are now offering our Super Spanish course ONLINE for the first time.

Speaking Spanish as a second language has huge benefits.

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 English at all.

You become one of a leading few 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 (bolds are mine): “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.

You may choose to take more time using the ONLINE course to learn Spanish, but thousands of our readers have learned to speak Spanish in only three days 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!

A special method of learning (called Super Learning) was created and refined by the Bulgarian educational master, Georgi Lozanov.   Lozanov transformed the entire Soviet educational system to such a degree that this third world country beat the USA into space.

My wife 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 1970s.  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 students 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 to create Relaxed Concentration 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 was among just a few who learned directly from Lozanov.

You gain six valuable ONLINE Relaxed Concentration sessions in the online course that is delivered via the internet.

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.   This eliminates the need to memorize 99% of Spanish words.

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 created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.   The normal three day course fee is $499 ($749 for a couple).

The ONLINE course is available 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 ONLINE 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.”

Pining for Good Health with Pineapple


Many of us pine for good health and pineapple can help.  Pineapple is a great healthy food.

However in the healthiness of pineapple there is confusion.

Pineapple

When is pineapple a health food… and not?

Blaine Watson our friend and Vedic Astrologer  send this tip from an Indian healer who we know is very experienced. He wrote:  Vaidya prescribes a few pieces of fresh, ripe organic papaya or pineapple after the lunch time meal. This is why pineapple is so good for you.

However we studied and worked with Ecuador shamans for years.

Eating the correct combinations of food for ideal digestion.

Andean nutritional ideals focus on combining foods in a way that avoid fermentation in the digestive system. Foods and spices are divided into three types: neutral, savory and sweet. Neutral can be mixed with savory or sweet, but no savory and sweet foods are mixed. The main neutral foods are grains, cereals, nuts and seeds. Meat and most vegetables are savory. Fruits are sweet. Cereals are ground and soaked to improve their digestibility. Sweet spices include cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, mint. Savory spices include salt, pepper, chiles, oregano, corriander, bay leaf, cumin, saffron, fennel.  No two fats are mixed nor are fruit types.  This discipline says that there are three foods that should never be mixed with any other food… the rule for these three is “eat it alone or leave it alone”.

Those three eat alone foods are… watermelon… bananas and pineapple.

There you have it… two nutritional plans… both work really well… yet one says eat pineapple after each noon day meal. The other says never eat pineapple on a full stomach.

I understand the philosophy beneath each of these recommendations but often differences in advice like this create analysis paralysis!   Good nutrition needs to account for your body type… your current physical imbalances… your environmental surroundings… the availability of food and your schedule, routine and lifestyle. All these factors should be considered when you think nutrition.

Each discipline, Vedic and Andean, are good.  The question is when.   This is why it is good to know healers from many disciplines and look for the underlying connections in their advice… or stick with one adviser.    Just make sure the one is good!

Merri and I make the effort to know Vedic healers, Shamans, Chiropractors, Kinesiologists, massage therapists and MDs… who look at good health in different ways.  We listen to them… try what sounds right for us and observe how we feel.

For example, Candace Newman, our friend of several decades,  regularly inspires our thoughts of good health each time we meet.   Many readers now use her essential oil formulas (as Merri and I do)

Candace and her husband John recently visited us.  Shortly after Merri and I strolled through Mount Dora and I was so impressed with the signs at a shop in the town center, that fit Candace’s thinking on natural health.

Painters bench

Sign at Painter’s Daughter, a shop in Mount Dora, Florida.

The shop is called the Painter’s Daughter, but it is the sign on this door that captured my attention.

Painters bench

This is such a healthy thought and came on the heels of a note that Candace sent to us last week.

She wrote: “The Touch With Oils® work I started in the early 1990’s has always been to me…  the kind of “work” Kahil Gibran described as the true meaning of “work” … Love in Action … and Love made Visible.”

She calls her Touch With Oils® … a language of no words.

Rosy Longevity Tip

Here is a really rosy longevity tip that can help eliminate a dangerous health risk and enhance longevity… using roses… and a bit more.

sacred valley

Merri and I lived and worked with numerous Andean healers and ayurvedic physicians for many years.  This photo was taken as Merri and I hiked into a sacred valley for purification in a grotto where healing waters flow golden from the hidden rock face.

We have taken hundreds there for cleansing ceremonies in…

ecuador purification

these waters and this is the healing tool kit the shaman brings.  The kit consists of flowers and…

ecuador-shamanic-healing

a blend of essential floral oils called “Agua Flores”.  The healers know the healing power of essential oils.

One of the most important lessons gained from these healers is that the first rule of good purification is “avoid getting impurities in your body in the first place“!

Merri and I take care in what we eat, drink and especially breathe and put on our skin.  The fastest way for any element good or bad to get into the blood stream is via the lungs and the skin.

This is why I smile at our seminars… when delegates ask about my great cologne… telling me how much they like it, even though…  I have not used cologne for something like 40 years.

The delegates are picking up the aroma of essential oils I use every day.  I use these oils for two important purification reasons.

First, essential oils help balance the system and eliminate impurities.

Second, essential oils eliminate daily applications of numerous toxins that most Westerners  are bombarded with.

Since it is difficult for most of us to avoid numerous daily poisons, this message looks at a longevity alternative and begins by showing  how and why, FDA regulations can actually make it harder for us to understand what should go on our skin and what should not.

This problem of trust in the government is growing in more sectors than just American health care, but the reality has expanded that health protection provided by the government is not always in the public’s best interest…. but protects big business instead.

Good health care is only available to an increasingly smaller portion of top earners and often really dangerous practices are condoned by health authorities or at the least ignored.

To overcome this problem Merri and I take many steps to improve how we feel each day and hopefully enhance our activity and longevity.

One regular practice on our part is to use essential oils instead of deodorants.

There is a disturbing article about the FDA and deodorants at impact.com entitled “Deodorants, Antiperspirants and Your Health.”   This article says:  The goal of this article is to provide an overview of the health risks that come with the regular use of most deodorants and all antiperspirants.

If you use deodorants or antiperspirants I recommend you read the entire article (linked below).  Here are few key points from it:  Sweat has no odor, the familiar unpleasant odor is caused by bacteria that live on our skin and hair. These bacteria metabolize the proteins and fatty acids from our apocrine sweat, causing body odor.

Deodorants deal with the smell by neutralizing it and by killing the bacteria that metabolize the proteins and fatty acids.

Antiperspirants on the other hand, try to prevent sweating by blocking the pores using aluminum. Without sweat, the bacteria cannot metabolize proteins and fatty acids that cause body odor.

Antiperspirants – The Over-The-Counter Drug

It might be a surprise to learn that the antiperspirant you use daily is in fact an over-the-counter (OTC) drug.  As mentioned, Antiperspirants work by clogging, closing, or blocking the pores with aluminum salts in order to prevent the release of sweat, effectively changing the function of the body. Antiperspirants are considered to be drugs because they affect the physiology of the body.
Because antiperspirants are drugs, they are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  Consequently, every antiperspirant sold in the US has a Drug Identification Number (DIN), which you can find on the label.  A document called ‘monograph’ states requirements for categories of nonprescription drugs such as antiperspirants.  It defines for example what ingredients may be used and for what intended use.  If the standards of the OTC monograph are met, premarket approval of a potentially new OTC product is not necessary.

Antiperspirants contain many ingredients. However, part II and III of this series will focus on the active ingredient for antiperspirants: Aluminum. Most antiperspirants also contain paraben, an ingredient that is also used in deodorants.

Deodorants

As mentioned, deodorants deal with body odor by neutralizing the smell and by killing the bacteria that metabolize the proteins and fatty acids that occur in sweat.

In the last decade one particular ingredient in deodorants has become controversial: Paraben, a widely used preservative. Part IV will focus on paraben and its health effects.

Deodorants and Antiperspirants are Considered to be Safe

Both antiperspirants and deodorants are considered to be safe by the FDA, the American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute and the Mayo Clinic.

However, as you will learn in this series, FDA regulation does not mean that a drug is without danger. Like prescription drugs, the FDA oversees OTC drugs to ensure that they are properly labeled and that their benefits outweigh their risks.

There are many products or ingredients of products that have become controversial in regards to health effects. However, this does not mean that products will be taken off the market until deemed safe. Often, the FDA does not consider the evidence of danger to consumer’s health strong enough to take action.

The FDA will be the main subject of a future article, but if you want to research some of the bad decisions the FDA has made in the past, then Google some examples of product that only got pulled off the shelves when it became too obvious that people were dying due to heart attacks caused by these medications: ‘Vioxx’, ‘Celebrex’ and ‘Bextra’. The conclusion of this debacle according to leading cardiologist Dr. Eric Topol:

Neither of the two major forces in this 5-and-a-half-year affair — neither Merck nor the FDA — fulfilled its responsibilities to the public.

This is also why I have not used deodorants or cologne for decades and use essential oils instead!

Here is another reason.

This chart show shows how many secret chemicals are in various perfumes and colognes. This come from a safecosmetics.org article linked below. This articles tells about secret ingredients in colognes and perfumes that you may not want touching your skin.

Another health warning comes from Mercola.com.  Here is an excerpt from that site:
99% of Breast Cancer Tissue Contained This Everyday Chemical (NOT Aluminum)

Recent research found higher concentrations of parabens in the upper quadrants of the breast and axillary area, where antiperspirants are usually applied, suggesting they may contribute to the development of breast cancer. One or more paraben esters were detected in 99 percent of the tissue samples collected from mastectomies. In 60 percent of the samples, all five paraben esters were present.

Overall, topical application of personal care products containing parabens appear to be the greatest source of exposure to these estrogen-mimicking chemicals, far surpassing the risk of the aluminum in antiperspirants.

Aluminum chloride—the active ingredient in antiperspirants—has been found to act similarly to the way oncogenes work to provide molecular transformations in cancer cells. Like parabens, aluminum salts also mimic estrogen, and bioaccumulate in breast tissue, which can raise your breast cancer risk.

Despite the fact that parabens are used in such a wide variety of products, their safety is primarily based on a rat study from 1956, as modern toxicology studies are lacking, and not a single study on the chemicals’ carcinogenity follow acceptable regulatory standard carcinogenity study protocols, according to a recent review.

New research examining parabens found in cancerous human breast tissue points the finger at antiperspirants and other cosmetics for increasing your risk of breast cancer.

The research, which is also reviewed in an editorial published in the Journal of Applied Toxicology, looked at where breast tumors were appearing, and determined that higher concentrations of parabens were found in the upper quadrants of the breast and axillary area, where antiperspirants are usually appliedii.

Parabens are chemicals that serve as preservatives in antiperspirants and many cosmetics, as well as sun lotions. Previous studies have shown that all parabens have estrogenic activity in human breast cancer cells.

Another component of antiperspirants, aluminum chloride, has been found to act similarly to the way oncogenes work to provide molecular transformations in cancer cells. According to the authors of the editorial review, the research shows “signals of concern that such compounds are not as safe as previously generally considered, and further research is warranted.” Furthermore:

“The data from this latest study, the most extensive examination of parabens in human breast so far published, confirms previous work and raises a number of questions on the entire parabens, personal care product and human health debate, particularly relating to the source and toxicological significance of the paraben esters.”

Photo from Mercola.com article.

One reason I use essential oils almost every day is to avoid parabens.

I have been mixing up my own pure essential oil formula of Frankincense, Sandalwood, Geranium, Patchouli, and Rose Otto as a face cream after shaving.  I mix a drop with Lily of the Desert 99% organic Aloe Vera Gel which has no parabens.

I use… you’ll see why below… the same formula under my arms.

Now a new premixed formula of the same oils is available and I am using this. So can you.

Here is why you may want to.

Many Deodorants Contain Endocrine Disruptors

Another website lymphomainfo.net  has an article entitled “Just Say “No” to Endocrine Disruptors” Here is an excerpt:   The list is extensive and growing – bisphenol A, phthalates, parabens, PBDE’s (flame retardants), PCB’s, dioxins, atrazine, heptachlor, arsenic, mercury, lead among them. Referred to as “endocrine disruptors“(ED’s), a term describing their documented ability to mimic natural hormones and disrupt normal endocrine system functioning, this term certainly understates the myriad of ways in which these synthetic chemicals compromise our health.

Many of these compounds are lipophilic (stored in fat cells). Because women naturally have more fat cells than men, our bodies store more of these cancer-promoting chemicals than do men’s bodies. These chemicals can then be transferred across the placenta to a growing fetus.

This article (linked below) provides a list of individual steps you can take to reduce your and your family’s exposure to and bodily absorption of ED’s.

One of the steps is: Avoid products with added “fragrance” both in your home and on your body. A truly clean (and safe) home is a home without artificial scents. As a non-ED alternative to scented deodorants, try using a deodorant salt (the only safe deodorant during chemotherapy), complemented with a dab of your favorite essential oil just under your arms.

Lymph nodes are the most important part of the immune system and though they are spread throughout the body, there is concentration. Mostly they are concentrated in the neck, under the arms, and in the groins.

So I do not put chemicals  (Deodorants or Antiperspirants) under my arms in this important and sensitive lymph area… ever.

“These parts of the body are so important to health that my friend Jay Glaser M.D. even suggests avoiding regular soap for cleaning these areas. In his book “Body Renewal – The Lost Art of Self Repair” Jay writes: Use gentle glycerin soap only in the groin and underarms. Otherwise use mung bean flour, barley flour or chickpea flour instead of soap, available in Indian groceries (mung bean flour is usually best, but you can try them all). Keep your flour in a dry container near the shower, moisten it in your fingertips and gently apply it to the areas to be cleansed.”

Jay, by the way is one of the best healers I know… an MD and ayurvedic physician who spent years learning ayurved in India.  When Merri and I first began improving our health through Panchakarma.

Jay was the medical director along with John Douillard and Deepak Chopra at the health center.  Over the next seven years we developed a friendship and when we were invited to hike into the Llangantis deep in the Ecuador’s Oriente to learn more about the shamanic life…  Jay and his wife Danielle were the first we asked to join us.  Sanskrit is the root of Quichua the language of the Andes and Jay’s knowledge of Sanskrit and ayurvedic healing were invaluable in helping us see connections between Indian and Andean healing.

Jay’s book “Body Renewal, the Lost Art of Self Repair” is a must read.  You can order it on Amazon.com.

Here Merri and I with Jay overlooking the LLanganatis.

gary-scott-llanganatis

Hence everyone wanting to know about my (non existent) cologne.

Jay’s advice makes sense.  A medicalnewstoday.com article recently showed how there may even be a link between deodorants and breast cancer. The article begins:  A new study led by the University of Reading in the UK that examined breast tissue samples from 40 women who underwent mastectomies for breast cancer,  found they contained widespread traces of parabens, preservatives commonly used in deodorants, make-up, body lotions, moisturisers and many other cosmetic products. Although the study does not prove that parabens cause or even contribute to the development of breast cancer, it raises questions about their use.

Parabens are just one of the chemicals of concern in deodorants.  According to the Dr. Milker website’s list of toxins, the following can be found in Antiperspirants and deodorants:

* Aluminum: Central nervous system damage and linked to Alzheimers. Found in antiperspirant deodorants.

* Coumarin: Formerly the active ingredient in rat poison. A carcinogenic ingredient used in the manufacturing of deodorants.

* Formaldehyde: Suspected carcinogen and neurotoxin, it may be fatal if swallowed, absorbed through skin, inhaled or swallowed.

* Fragrances (Synthetic): Some perfumes / fragrances contain hundreds of chemicals. Some, such as methylene chloride are carcinogenic. Some cause brain damage or are neurotoxins. Avoid unless you can be sure they are not carcinogenic.

* Phthalates: Proven damage to liver, lungs, kidneys and reproductive system, especially forming testes.

* Propylene Glycol: Kidney damage, liver abnormalities, inhibits skin cell growth, damages cell membranes causing rashes, surface damage and dry skin.

* Propylparaben: Potential breast cancer risk and endocrine disruptor raising concern for impaired fertility or development, and increased risk for certain cancers, itching burning and blistering of skin, gastrointestinal or liver toxicity hazard.

This is why I use essential oils under my arms to eliminate poison instead of adding toxins.

For many years, with the advice of our friend Candace Newman, I have blended my own deodorant… getting the essential oils and organic jojoba oil from Candace and mixing them.

I am especially excited because Candace has now created her own secret blend of these oils that make a perfect replacement for deodorants and antiperspirants.  The blend is called Rejuvination Face Oil and contains Frankincense, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Geranium and Rose Otto in an organic jojoba base.

I am using this now (instead of blending myself) and like it so much I decided to make it available to all my readers at a really special price… lower than I believe you can get a similar product anywhere.

This essential oil acts deodorant and more and helps improve rather than decrease natural health.

Let me begin by saying that essential oils have not been evaluated by the FDA as cures for any specific illness.  This product is not intended to diagnose, cure or prevent disease. Having said this I share a lot of data above that strongly implies that deodorants and antiperspirants may be dangerous.  Below is data that suggests that there are many natural health benefits in essential oils.

It makes sense to assume that putting essential oils under your arms is better for you then chemical laden deodorants and antiperspirants.

Candace Newman with Merri and me studying herbs at an Ecuador market.

Candace learned about essential oils during the 1980s when failing health forced her to leave a lucrative position as Executive V.P. of a real estate company in Naples, Florida. Years of physical discomfort followed, caused by a cyst that eventually ruptured internally, nerve pain from spinal misalignment and incapacitating head and shoulder aches. The unbearable pain and stress caused sleepless nights and sapped her energy. After 15 doctors, numerous health retreats and two operations, Candace began the search for a way to get her life and spirit back.

When a therapist from England used essential oils on her, a light bulb went on that forever changed her life. The aromas gave instant relief and comfort to the emotional stress, anxiety and exhaustion, while the oils soothed the physical aches and pains. However, with her lifetime sensitivity to commercial perfumes and fragrances, Candace was curious as to why these aromas not only didn’t bother her, but also brought needed relief. This led to her worldwide studies with wonderful teachers from England, France, Germany, Canada and Purdue University.

Since 1993 Candace has been giving Aromatherapy massage treatments, developing formulas, writing, teaching and lecturing. During this time she has spoken at hundreds of events and on radio and TV, at conventions, retreats, lectures and classes for the general public. As a volunteer at Hospice, she taught more than 200 nurses, staff, caregivers and volunteers.

This new blend is Candace’s Rejuvenation Face Oil made from rare essential oils and 100% Organic Golden Jojoba.

organic-rose-oil

This  oil is really exquisite and has become Candace’s signature formula and top seller by far even though she just launched it several weeks ago.

It’s great for the skin, and people report the aroma is a great anxiety reliever. When the formula is used at night, it also promotes sweet sleep.

This oil also has excellent antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. The formula includes Frankincense, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Geranium and Rose Otto… so the aroma is perfect as my deodorant but also provides many other benefits including:

* Increased circulation, especially to nerve endings
* Toning of the muscles and the whole physiology
* Calming of the nerves
* Lubrication of the joints
* Increased mental alertness
* Improved elimination of impurities from the body
* Softer, smoother skin
* Increased levels of stamina through the day
* Better, deeper sleep at night

The University of Minnesota website www.takingcharge.edu explores healing practices with essential oils.

Here are a couple of excerpts from the site (bolds are mine and a link to the entire site is at the end of this message):

How do I use essential oils?

Essential oils enter the body primarily in three ways—applied to the skin, inhaled, or ingested. Within each of these, there are many different kinds of application methods. For example, you can apply essential oils topically using compresses, sprays, baths, or massaging them into the skin.

Factors That Increase Skin Absorption

Different factors can affect the absorption of essential oils through the skin. If you massage the area first, it will increase circulation to that area, thereby causing an increase in absorption of essential oils. Heat will likewise increase circulation and thus enhance absorption.

Some researchers report that essential oils may be more readily absorbed from skin locations with greater concentrations of sweat glands and hair follicles, such as the genitals, head, soles, palms, and armpits (Battaglia, 2003).

Interaction with the Limbic System (Emotional Brain)

During inhalation, odor molecules travel through the nose and affect the brain through a variety of receptor sites, one of which is the limbic system, which is commonly referred to as the “emotional brain.”

The limbic system is directly connected to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, and hormone balance (Higley & Higley, 1998). This relationship helps explain why smells often trigger emotions. Knowing this, we can hypothesize how inhalation of essential oils can have some very profound physiological and psychological effects!

“Smell is a potent wizard that transports us across thousands of miles and all the years we have lived.” Helen Keller

Are Essential Oils Safe?

Most essential oils are safe and free of adverse side effects when used properly. However, as with any substance you are introducing into your body, it is important to use them intelligently. We recommend that you never eat or drink essential oils.
Can essential oils be toxic?

Toxicity rarely occurs with appropriate use of essential oils and is primarily attributed to misuse and accidental ingestion, especially in young children. Essential Oil Safety by Tisserand and Balacs, 1995, is a valuable reference to understanding potential toxicity and lethal dosages. Again, we recommend that you never eat or drink essential oils.

The Nature of Plants and Tiny Molecules

Essential oil chemistry is made up of very tiny molecules.  These molecules are much smaller than the molecules found in fatty oils.

The tiny size is the key that unlocks good health because they easily penetrate cell walls, even the blood-brain barrier.   This allows the essential oil molecules to reach parts of the body like nothing else in a really fast and positive way.

These tiny molecules work through the skin and reach most parts of the body almost instantly.

This allows essential oils to permeate your body with the plant’s healing energy.

Plant’s Healing Energy

Plants have an intelligence that allows them to grow and survive.  Essential oils are a concentration of this knowledge.

Plants have to beat back mold and fungi and overcome bacteria and viruses. That concentrated ability is carried into our bodies through essential oils.

Essential oils enhance the power of human immune systems just as they do for plants and make essential oils effective health promoters.

Essential oils help defeat molds, fungi, viruses and bacteria as they support the endocrine, circulatory, digestive, nervous, and reproductive systems.

Essential Antioxidants

Essential oils are also among the world’s most powerful antioxidants.

Remember essential oils are a concentrated form of a plant’s intelligence.  If eating a plant (such as a rose) creates great anti oxidant activity… then using the essential oil concentrates this healthy action.

In other words essentials oils are super scrubbers of free radicals. This is important because anti oxidation is known to slow the aging process and reduce the risks of cancer.

ORAC Value

ecuador-roses

When a rose is more than a rose… a powerful anti oxidant scrubber.

ORAC stands for “Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity”.   This is a scientific measurement that measures the antioxidant capacity of a food item and or oil.  USDA researchers at Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts, developed this laboratory test to measure the oxygen radical absorption capacity of different foods and natural substances.  This is known as the ORAC scale and is one of the most sensitive and reliable methods for measuring antioxidant capacity.

This scale helped the health care community learn about valuable antioxidant foods like Pomegranates that have an ORAC value 3,037 and Blueberries  with an ORAC of 2,400.

Fewer know about the anti oxidant ORAC scale of essential oils.

Rose essential oil for example has an ORAC value of 160,400!

This is more than 50 times the ORAC value of  pomegranates!

Other oils in Candace’s blend also have very high ORAC values such as :

Geranium     ORAC Value 101,000

Patchouli      ORAC Value  49,400

Here are the concentrated properties of each essential oil in Candace’s rejuvenation Rose Oil Blend.

Rose Otto essential oil:  Rose Otto is an anti-infectious, natural anti-inflammatory, relaxant, antihemmorrhaging, antiulcer, scar reducing, and has aphrodisiac qualities.  Rose Otto is used for anxiety, hypertension, viral infections (herpes simples), bronchitis, skin conditions (eczema, scaring, wrinkles, restores moisture balance, all skin types, dry or inflamed skin), menstrual problems, digestive problems, liver congestion, and headaches.

Rose Otto also has the highest frequency (320 Hertz) of all the essential oils.   This means that rose oil penetrates and energizes every cell in the body.

Frankincense essential oil:  Frankincense is antiseptic, a disinfectant, astringent, carminative, cicatrisant, cytophylactic, digestive, diuretic, emenagogue, expectorant, sedative, tonic, uterine and vulnerary.

Sandalwood essential oil:  Sandalwood has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties and helps regulate the digestive tract, fight urinary infections and eases inflammation in the nervous and circulatory systems.

Patchouli essential oil: Patchouli is an anti depressant, antiseptic, aphrodisiac, deodorant, diuretic, fungicide, sedative and tonic.

Geranium essential oil: Geranium is anti bacterial and anti microbial and does not let bacteria or microbes develop. It facilitates blood circulation just below the surface of skin and also helps make distribution of melanin uniform plus promotes cell health and also encourages recycling of dead cell and regeneration of new cells. This helps in the growth of the body cells as well as gametes.

Geranium has an uplifting aroma and helps the body’s systems and functions work properly by influencing endocrinal glands for regulating secretion of various hormones, enzymes, acids and bile etc. and toning up the respiratory system, digestive system, circulatory system, nervous system and excretory system.

That’s quite a blend!  Your body will like it.  Others will like it on you as well.   Everyone comments on the aroma and it makes my clothes smell great!

An 1 ounce bottle of this retails for $45 which is a great price with the 100% organic jojoba base.

This may seem expensive compared to $8 or $9 for a 1.7-Ounce Stick of Men’s Gillette Clinical All Day Fresh Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant or $28 for 3 ounces of  women’s DERMAdoctor Total NonScents Brightening Antiperspirant.

The higher price of natural products versus chemical is understandable.  An ounce of good quality Rose Otto essential oil requires 60,000 roses and costs around $400.

On the other hand the health benefits of this blend make it a bargain.  According to answers.yahoo, the treatment cost for stage 3 non-hodgkin’s lymphoma can easily exceed $300,000 so cutting off  potential health problems at the pass makes sense.

You Actually Can Save.

Since you can also throw away expensive colognes, perfumes and face cremes as well as deodorants you save money as you gain a chance for better health.

Only one or two drops are required so a bottle of Candace Newman’s Rejuvenation Face Oil  goes a long ways. One bottle lasts for a couple of months for me.  If you use it for the face as well… obviously it will go faster.

You can order a bottle of  Rejuvenation Face Oil for $45 from Candace here.

Healing the Seasons


Here are three cool health ideas.

cotacachi church

Cotacachi Ecuador’s cathedral pictured in the full moon from an Inn Land of the Sun suite.  See below how the moon can help promote natural health.

Last week’s message on health ideas created the largest response we have seen in a decade.  Frankly we were surprised so if you missed it… read it by clicking here Longevity Secret.

This reaction from so many readers reminded us of the importance of maintaining good health so here are three more natural health tips.

Cool Health Idea #1: Eat watermelon.

See three great ways to reduce excess summer heat from the body and that can also make you look five years younger at the same time.

Eating watermelon is one.  This cools you from the inside out… in a way you would not imagine.

Ayurved, the Indian science of life and the Andean shamanic wisdom look at health as a balance between three physical elements, motion (air), material (water) and digestion (fire).

Reducing fire in a hot summer is beneficial for health because fire rules digestion.  When out of balance, we do not digest any information correctly.

Fire also rules beauty because its imbalances are reduced by the body through the skin. Too much fire creates rashes, acne, blemishes, poor skin luster, dull hair and much more. The three fire reducing tricks below not only enhance health, but also help clear your skin and make it glow.

The first trick is to eat watermelon…lots of it at one time (and with nothing else) and fresh!

Watermelon is a cleanser.

Eat a whole, big one if you can.

This works in the spring and summer when the flushing action removes excessive fire, water and air.

The melon must be fresh, whole and cut within 20 minutes. Watermelon is a sponge that absorbs and flushes free radicals from the system. If you let the melon sit after cutting, it oxidizes and loses its cleansing capacity. Also, it can become a free radical itself.

The rule is “Eat it alone or leave it alone”.

Make the melon your entire meal and eat nothing for three to four hours before and after.  Do not do this before taking a trip as it will result in a flushing action.  Sound crazy? I thought so but tried it after watching a Shaman prescribe it for a woman suffering a severe rash (a summer fire imbalance).  I felt so good that I now make this a regular habit during the summer…and thoroughly enjoy it!

Cool Health Idea #2: A different type of mooning. The second tip can be romantic as well as healthy  – moon bathing and calm conversation.

Last night, as the sun sets in lavender glory, we took a walk in the cool evening air with our son, Jake, and his girlfriend, Miranda.

little horse creek campfire

We let a camp fire warm the cool night air… listened to the katydids and bathed in the moonbeams.

little horse creek moonwalk

This is cool… and cooling.

We soaked in the moon’s creamy reflections filtered through the forest.

Then we strolled in the moonlight back to the house glowing its welcome in the night.

gary-scott-home

This may sound even crazier than eating watermelon for good health, but try it.  I find the moonlight to be not only beautiful but calming.

The foundations of this idea… though less romantic than the pure beauty of moonlight are imbedded in both ancient and modern scientific terms.

Moonlight impacts the area of the body called, in Ayurved, the crown chakra.   The Andean indigenous wisdom acknowledges this area at the top of the head as a key to balancing all the Rios de Luce (Rivers of Light) or main energy processing points in the body

This center is located in the top of the head  and is associated with the brain, and the entire nervous system.

The subtle frequency of moonlight is soothing and calming… which helps mitigate fire imbalances.

The crown chakra is said to affect what one experiences when in the deepest part of their being, as a point of consciousness glowing with intelligence
called White Light.

Metaphysically, this is considered the most subtle element of which the entire physical universe is created.

This fits nicely with a science if we view the endocrine system as a series of frequency receptors.

The crown chakra is believed to regulate the pineal gland which connects the endocrine system with the nervous system and converts nerve signals from the sympathetic system of the peripheral nervous system into hormone signals.

The pineal is involved in several functions of the body including, secretion of melatonin and conversion of nervous system signals into endocrine signals.

The popular science website has an article entitled “Moonlight Magic” by Alan M. Petrillo (linked below) that  tells how a successful businessman spent $2 million to build a 50-foot-tall moonlight collector, a 30-ton array of mirrors called the Interstellar Light Collector and invited scientists nationwide to put his device to the test.

The article says: Biologists at the University of Arizona have expressed interest in using the collector to study moonlight´s effects on plant growth cycles but not yet on people. If nothing else, the collector offers a unique research opportunity.

Although moonlight is reflected sunlight, its frequency and spectrum are unique and, so far, irreplicable, which makes it difficult to examine in a controlled, clinical fashion. “It´s a hot area to understand the spectral effects of light on human health and physiology,”  says Michael Gorman, a University of California at San Diego biopsychologist who has studied how hamsters react to light.

However we choose to view it… romantically as the soft glow that washes a moonlit path… as an ancient wisdom or a scientific reaction in the pineal gland… moonbaths can help cool us and balance our fire, water, air equilibrium.

Cool Health Idea #3:   Cool Through the Skin

Here are two ways… cream and aloe vera.

Whipped Cream Cooling

A great way to get rid of heat quickly is to massage with cream.

An eHow article “Home Remedies for Dry Skin & Itching” by Karen Carter says: This is not where the whipped cream in the spray can gets pulled out of the refrigerator. This is the old fashioned, good-for-the-skin whipping cream. Cream contains proteins and lactic acids. This helps soften and nourish the skin. Beat 1 cup of heavy cream with an electric mixer until soft peeks form. This creates a bowl of soft and fluffy whipped cream that is not full of sugar. Slather the cream onto the skin and massage it in. Let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes before rinsing off in a warm bath or shower.

Aloe Cooling

Our friend Candace Newman who is our aromatherapy expert writes:   Summer heat is still amongst us with more extreme temperatures than ever. Cool soothing relief is welcome, and healing aloe vera gel with essential oil can really fit the bill.

In 1989, one of the first base ingredients I used with essential oils was aloe vera gel. It just seemed like a natural mate for essential oils. They create a wonderful synergy. Living in Naples, Florida, it grew in abundant supply and was a staple to have around as a plant or in a jar. We just broke off a leaf from the plant, split it open and rubbed the clear soothing gel right on the hurting skin. Then essential oils came onto the scene.

When I think of the word “aloe”, I think of “healing”. It’s soothing anti-inflammatory properties know how to heal. Aloe goes back to ancient times and is mentioned in the Bible for its healing properties.  It is widely recognized for its healing effects on burns, scrapes, bites and cuts. Aloe blends well with many substances, like other lotions, oils and creams.

Our line of five healing gels have developed over the years with the sacred synergy created by essential oils, aloe vera gel, and Organic Golden Jojoba. Since summer is still here, our special for you this month is our Skin Calm Gel.

Healing Gel Palm Blend: Put a dab of aloe gel in your palm and add 1-2 drops of the appropriate essential oil. Use Lavender for burns and cuts, Tea Tree for bites and scratches, and Peppermint for headaches.

August Special: 10% off our Skin Calm Gel. This 2 oz jar of luscious cooling blue-green gel belongs in your medicine cabinet. Our proprietary essential oil formula includes Lavender, Yarrow, Blue Chamomile and Rose Otto.

Life is balance. Medicine is dose.  When we have  just enough air, fire and water… we are happier, more beautiful and more effective.  Late summer is the worst time for fire imbalances… so be cool. Try these three steps to getting rid of the buildup of summer heat.

Funky Micro Business Cashes in on Unusual Debt


See a funky micro business that cashes in on a huge, little thought about… and most common… but unusual debt.

light poluttion map

Our farm (marked A) is in one of the darkest spots in the…

light poluttion map

Eastern US.  Dark nights help us avoid this very common and bad debt.  See the light pollution map link below.

Sleep debt. 

Light pollution causes many sleep disorders and sleep deprivation causes sleep debt.  To do well in these times of change the most important assets we need are… the ability to communicate… plus we need out of the box novel thinking and our logic.   Yet sleep debt… as you’ll see in excerpts below from a Brynmawr University website can destroy them all!

Sleep deprivation is a huge global problem.  Industrialization has created a high paced lifestyle that creates a lack of time to get everything done. Too many burn the candles at both ends and the shortfall usually cuts out sleep.

Plus sleep deprivation is a growing medical disorder that is usually missed because sleep is not taught in medical school.  In fact most MDS are run through a gauntlet of missed sleep and build huge sleep debts.

The cost of sleep debt in lost production, accidents, and human lives is astronomical.

What is Sleep Debt?  When you miss sleep you need, you begin to build up a sleep debt.   If you lose an hour’s sleep a day in a week you have a 7 hours of sleep debt. This can be made up for by sleeping in on the weekend but if not, losses of really important functions… especially in these tense times… begin to occur.

Excerpts from a biology lesson at a Brynmawr University website entitled “The Effects of Sleep Deprivation on Brain and Behavior” explains: Sleep deprivation is a commonplace occurrence in modern culture. Every day there seems to be twice as much work and half as much time to complete it in. This results in either extended periods of wakefulness or a decrease in sleep over an extended period of time. While some people may like to believe that they can train their bodies to not require as much sleep as they once did this belief is false (1). Sleep is needed to regenerate certain parts of the body, especially the brain, so that it may continue to function optimally. After periods of extended wakefulness or reduced sleep neurons may begin to malfunction, visibly effecting a person’s behavior. Some organs, such as muscles, are able to regenerate even when a person is not sleeping so long as they are resting. This could involve lying awake but relaxed within a quite environment. Even though cognitive functions might not seem necessary in this scenario the brain, especially the cerebral cortex, is not able to rest but rather remains semi-alert in a state of “quiet readiness” (2). Certain stages of sleep are needed for the regeneration of neurons within the cerebral cortex while other stages of sleep seem to be used for forming new memories and generating new synaptic connections. The effects of sleep deprivation on behavior have been tested with relation to the presence of activity in different sections of the cerebral cortex.

The frontal lobe is the most fascinating section of the brain with relation to sleep deprivation. Its functions are associated with speech as well as novel and creative thinking (5). Sleep deprived test subjects have difficulties thinking of imaginative words or ideas. Instead, they tend to choose repetitious words or clichéd phrases. Also, a sleep-deprived individual is less able to deliver a statement well. The subject may show signs of slurred speech, stuttering, speaking in a monotone voice, or speaking at a slower pace than usual (6). Subjects in research studies also have a more difficult time reacting well to unpredicted rapid changes. Sleep deprived people do not have the speed or creative abilities to cope with making quick but logical decisions, nor do they have the ability to implement them well. Studies have demonstrated that a lack of sleep impairs one’s ability to simultaneously focus on several different related tasks, reducing the speed as well as the efficiency of one’s actions (8). A person may be able to react to a complex scenario when suddenly presented with it but, similar to the verbal tests, the subject will most likely pick an unoriginal solution. If presented with a similar situation multiple times with slight variations in the information presented the subject chooses the same solution, even though it might not be as applicable to the new scenario (9).

There are many ways to improve sleep like living in remote areas in dark places as Merri and I do.

There are other sleep aids as well, like essential oils.

Our friend Candace Newman, the Oil Lady, has created a tranquility blend of essentials oils to help one relax before sleep.

Candace writes:  Who amongst us would not invite more peace and tranquility into our days and nights? The calm in the center of the storm … the order that comes out of chaos …. these are the challenges of the times. Essential oils serve us well here.

The Peace of Aromatic Health and Prosperity to you!

Oils of Tranquility – Many come to mind … some are exceptional.

Essential oils are examples of holistic medicine by their very nature. The medicinal liquid cares for the skin and tissue; the aroma comforts the mind, emotion and spirit. Some have natural tranquilizer properties.

Lavender is the #1 essential oil to balance the central nervous system. It can shift stress, grief, overwhelm, fear, hypo and hyper rhythms. It anesthetizes the wild monkeys in the mind, and reminds us that everything will be OK. I call it the “River of Peace” and “Oil of Homeostasis”.

Sweet Orange essential oil comes from the rind and it is sweet and nurturing with a fresh-fruity aroma. Soothing the nerves and lifting the spirit, it tends to make us smile and remind us of sweets and holidays.

Roman Chamomile sedates the nerves and flows like a river through the built-up damns of mental overload. The strong aroma can be overpowering, so it’s best combined with some of these other essential oils in light dosages.

Vetiver is distilled from the roots of a tall grass in India where it is referred to as the “Oil of Tranquility”. Its deep earthy-woody aroma makes it a sedative and deeply relaxing for nervous tension.

Valerian is an ancient well-known herb for its relaxant powers. The essential oil is very strong … a little dab of it in a blend does the job.

All the above oils make-up the orchestra of our Natural Tranquilizer Oil
Blend.

•    Use this blend of calming oils to soothe and balance the mind and emotions.

•    Apply to nose, temples, back of neck, chest and belly.

•    Use as a massage blend.

•    Good as a bath oil. Get in the bath first and massage temples, neck, chest and belly.

Candace goes beyond tranquility to help you sleep with a Sweet Sleep Set of Essential Oils!

She says:  For a good night’s sleep, use our Lavender Mist, a drop of Lavender on your pillow, and massage temples, neck and belly. See our Sweet Sleep Set.  Pour in palm, rub palms together, cup nose, close eyes and breathe deeply.

The Tranquility Blend is the October special at Candace’s website Normally $19  now $17.10.

Pure Essential Oils: Lavender, Orange, Roman Chamomile, Vetiver, Valerian Base: Organic Golden Jojoba

This was developed after we opened our shop-studio in Naples, Florida for a client that requested a “natural tranquilizer” to calm down and to sleep. I first learned about Vetiver in 1990 as the “Oil of Tranquility” from India. It is smooth and luscious with Orange, Lavender and Chamomile … and combines well with Valerian (the well-known herb for stress and anxiety).  Some carry it around with them during the day and apply a little to their nose, others keep it on their bed-stand for rest and sleep, and Grandmothers do belly rubs for their grandchildren at bedtime. Good for traveling too.

During these times of enormous social economic change we need our wits about us and we don’t when we are burdened with sleep debt.

Even though Merri and I live in a dark quiet place, we also use essential oils from Candace Newman and suggest you give them a try as well.

The Huge 2019 Risk

Here is a huge risk that could explode in 2019.

I hope I am wrong… but the numbers are clear.

According to Treasurydirect.com, (1) as of December 27, 2018 the cost of interest on the total US public debt of $21,845,329,154,412.01.  Tht’s 23 trillion and 845 billion dollars.

This is not a theoretical problem for the future.  This is not something that our children and grandchildren will have to deal with.  This is a problem in the here and now for you and me.

Rising interest rates create a massive problem for every American.

US debt

The good news is I sent a note like this last year ad I was wrong.

Last year when I sent that note the debt was $20,467,375,664,755.32 (20 trillion+).  The debt has increased almost 1.4 trillion dollars in 2018.

This is good news and bad… the rock and the hard spot.  The bad news is that the rock (US federal debt) is getting bigger….harder to miss.  The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projected in 2010 (the debt then was a bit over 14 trillion then) that, under law at that time, debt held by the public would exceed $16 trillion by 2020, reaching nearly 70 percent of GDP.

The $5 Trillion Error.

They sure goofed on that.  Here we are… only in 2019 and debt has shot past 21 trillion.

How could the CBO be so wrong? 

The CBO screwed up because they could never imagine that the Fed would push interest rates so low… and keep them there.  The interest rates are so low that the government has been able to borrow more than imagined and still afford the interest.

For example, US Federal government interest last year amounted to around $483 billion on the 20 trillion of debt.  Yet in 2008 on debt of only $9,229,172,659,218.31 (9 trillion +) the interest that year was $451,154,049,950.63 (451 billion +).

Interest payments in 2017 were 7% higher than they were in 2008.  Yet the debt is over 100% higher.  

Very low interest rates have helped the government borrow.  Low interest has also helped the US stocks reach all time high prices.

Now US dollar interest rates are rising.  In 2018 the interest costs were 8.2% higher than in 2017.   Yet the debt increase was only 6.7%.

The government will resist raising rates because it will ruin their budget, cause a collapse of the stock markets and destroy the US dollar.

Here is the very hard spot.  

Rising interest rates, will create an almost unimaginable debt crisis.  If government interest goes to 6% it is like the $20+ trillion national debt  rising to 40 trillion!  Unless there are some huge tax increase the interest payments are not sustainable.

A tax increase?  Last year’s tax act reduced, not increased, revenue.

Learn how to have more freedom and time, less stress, better health care, extra income, greater safety and profit in your savings despite America’s deficits, debt and currency risk.

Fortunately there are secrets that will allow a few to live much better, free of debt and worry despite the decline in the dollar’s purchasing power.   My wife, Merri and I, have traveled, lived, worked and invested around the world for nearly 50 years to gain this information.

Let me share the basics of this data and how we can be of help through 2018.

The first fact behind this secret is that things are really good in the western world.  Despite many problems, we are surrounded by more abundance and greater opportunity than almost anyone has ever enjoyed, anywhere, ever.   To enjoy a fair share of this wealth, all we have to do is understand human nature and learn how to invest in the new economy, as it changes and becomes new, again and again.

Merri and I have made seven huge transitions in the 50 years.  Each has allowed us to always stay ahead of losses that the majority of Americans suffer.  We are in another transition right now and want to share why and what to do so you can stay ahead and live a richer, independent life through 2019 and beyond.

A falling US dollar is one of the greatest risks we have to our independence, safety, health, and wealth, but also brings a window of huge profit as I explain below.   Though the greenback has been strong for a number of years, its strength is in serious jeopardy.  The growing federal deficits increase the national debt and this with rising interest rates propels a growing debt service.

While the Dow Jones Industrial Average passed 25,000, the U.S. national debt passed the $20 trillion mark.

The problem is that the Dow will come back down.  National debt will not fall.

The double shock of money fleeing Wall Street and US debt skyrocketing, will destroy the purchasing power of the greenback.

Go to the store even now.  Statistics say inflation is low, but buy some bread or, heaven forbid, some fresh vegetables like peppers or fruit.   Look at the cost of your prescription or hospital bills.  Do something simple like have your car serviced at an auto dealer.  Look at the dollars you spend and you’ll see what I mean.

The loss of the dollar’s purchasing power erodes our independence, our freedom and our savings and wealth as well. 

At the same time, low interest rates by big banks and higher health care costs soak up the ever diminishing income and savings we have left.  According to a Gallup poll, the most unpopular three institutions in America are big corporations & Wall Street banks, HMOs and Congress.

Yet there is little we can do because these institutions are in control.

Over the last 50 years the average income for 90 percent of the American population fell.  Our health system is restricted by a Kafka-esque maze of legislation and insurance regulations that delay, frustrate, and thwart attempts by patients and doctors from proper medical care.  Big banks and corporations restrict our freedom of choice.  The business customer relationships are no longer transactions between free equals.

Banks can trap us in indebtedness at every age from student loans to mortgages to health care costs.  They pay almost nothing on our savings.  They hide unexpected fees and payments in complex and unreadable documents.  Banks and big corporations routinely conceal vital information in small print and then cheat.  Weak regulations and lax enforcement leave consumers with few ways to fight back.  Many of these businesses ranging from cable TV to phone and internet service to health insurance have virtual monopolies that along with deceptive marketing destroys any form of free market.

These same companies control the credit-scoring agencies so if  we don’t pay unfair fees, our credit scores will plunge and we could lose the ability to borrow money, rent an apartment, even to get a job.  Many consumers are forced to accept “arbitration clauses” in lieu of  legal rights.  The alternative is to lose banking, power, and communication services.

Big business has also usurped our privacy.  Internet companies sell our personal data.  Personal information is pulled from WiFi and iPhones track and store our movements.  The government can access this information, sometimes without subpoenas.  There’s a lot that we don’t know, often withheld under the guise of “National Security.”

The glow on Western democratic capitalism has dimmed… or so it seems.  The US, leading the way, is still a superpower with economic, innovation and military might, but the institutions that should serve the people have become flawed or broken.

America’s infrastructure is in shambles.  The nation’s bridges are crumbling, many water systems are filled with toxins, yet instead of spending more to fix this, we build more prisons.  The 2.2 million people currently in  jail is a 500 percent increase over the past thirty years.  60% of the inmates belong to ethnic groups.  Not just non-white ethnic groups are suffering.  Annual death rates are falling for every group except for middle-aged white Americans.  Death rates are rising among this group driven by an epidemic of suicides and afflictions stemming from substance abuse, alcoholic liver disease and overdoses of heroin and prescription opioids.

America’s middle class is shrinking.  Nearly  half of America’s income goes to upper-income households now.  In 1970 only 29 percent went to this group.  How can we regain our freedom, our happiness and our well being in such a world?

What can we do?

Gain a better, freer life is to combine better health, higher income and greater savings for a happier, more resilient lifestyle. 

Merri and I will celebrate our 50th year of global living, working, investing and researching to find and share ideas on how to have simpler, low stress, healthier, more affluent lifestyles.  Our courses, reports and email messages look at ways to gain:

#1:  Global micro business income.

#2:  Low cost, natural health.

#3:  Safer, more profitable, investments that take little time or cost to buy and hold… so you can focus on earning more instead

Many readers use our services for just one of these three benefits.  They focus only on health or on earning more or on better, easier investing.

28 years ago Merri and I created the International Club as a way for readers to join us and be immersed in all three of these benefits.   The International Club is a year long learning program aimed at helping members earn worry free income, have better affordable good health and gain extra safety and profits with value investments.

Join us for all of 2019 NOW.

The three disciplines, earning, health and investing, work best when coordinated together.  Regretfully the attacks on our freedom are realities of life.  There is little we can do to change this big picture.  However we can change how we care for our health, how we earn and how we save so that we are among the few who live better despite the dollar’s fall.

We start with better lower cost health care.

Club membership begins by sharing ways to be free of the “Secret Hospital Charge Master”.   Just as governments hide truth behind “National Security”, big health care businesses hide medical truths behind “Charge masters”.  Most hospital charge masters are secret because big business does not want us to know how much hospital costs have risen.  Motivations beyond our good health, like corporate greed, want to keep us in the dark about health care cost.

Despite rising health care costs, a report from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention shows that hospitals are the last place we want to be for good health.  One report shows that hospital-acquired infections alone kills 57% more Americans every year than all car accidents and falls put together.

Often, what patients catch in the hospital can be worse than what sent them there.  Governments and health care agencies agree  – antibiotic resistance is a “nightmare.”  An antibiotic-resistant bacteria may be spreading in more hospitals than patients know.  About one in every 25 hospitalized patients gets an infection and a report from the Journal of Patient Safety showed that medical errors are the third-leading cause of death in the country.

Along with the risk of hospital acquired illness and medical errors, the second huge threat to our well being… is health care costs, especially at hospitals.  This is why charge masters are so often secret.  There are few risks to our wealth that are greater than a hospital stay.

I have created three natural health reports are about:

#1: Nutrition

#2: Purification

#3: Exercise

Each report is available for $19.95.  However you’ll receive this free as club member and save $59.85.

Club members also receive seven workshops and courses on how earn everywhere with at home micro businesses.  We call this our “Live Well and Free Anywhere Program”.   The program contains a series of courses and reports that show ways to earn and be free. These courses and reports are:

  • “International Business Made EZ”
  • “Self Fulfilled – How to Write to Sell”
  • Video Workshop by our webmaster David Cross,
  • The entire weekend “Writer’s Camp” in MP3
  • The report “How to Raise Money Abroad”
  • Report and MP3 Workshop “How to Gain Added Success With Relaxed Concentration”
  • The course “Event-Full – How to Earn Conducting Seminars and Tours”

This program is offered at $299, but is available to you as a club member free.  You save $299 more.

Next, club members participate in an intensive program called the Purposeful investing Course (Pi).  The purpose of Pi is finding value investments that increase safety and profit.  Learn Slow, Worry Free, Good Value Investing.

Stress, worry and fear are three of an investor’s worst enemies.  These destroyers of wealth can create a Behavior Gap, that causes investors to underperform in any market good or bad.  The behavior gap is created by natural human responses to fear.  Pi helps create profitable strategies that avoid losses from this gap.

Lessons from Pi are based on the creation and management of a Primary Pi Model Portfolio, called the Pifolio.  There are no secrets about this portfolio except that it ignores the stories from economic news (often created by someone with vested interests) and is based mainly on good math that reveals the truth through financial news.

The Pifolio is a theoretical portfolio of MSCI Country Benchmark Index ETFs that cover all the good value markets using my 50 years of global experience and my study of the analysis of four mathematical investing geniuses (and friends).

There are seven layers of tactics in the Pi strategy.

Pi Tactic #1: Determine purpose and good value.

Pi Tactic #2: Diversify 70% to 80% of portfolio equally in good value developed markets.

Pi Tactic #3: Invest 20% to 30% equally in good value emerging markets.

Pi Tactic  #4:  Use trending algorithms to buy sell or hold these markets.

Pi Tactic  #5:  Add spice speculating with ideal conditions.

Pi Tactic  #6: Add spice speculating with leverage.

Pi Tactic  #7:  Add spice speculating with forex potential.

The Pifolio analysis begins with a continual research of international major stock markets that compares their value based on:

#1:  Current book to price

#2:  Cash flow to price

#3:  Earnings to price

#4:  Average dividend yield

#5:  Return on equity

#6:  Cash flow return

#7:  Market history

We combine the research of several brilliant mathematicians and money managers with my years of investing experience.

This is a complete and continual study of what to do about the movement of international major and emerging stock markets.  I want to share this study throughout the next year with you.

This analysis forms the basis of a Good Value Stock Market Strategy.  The analysis is rational, mathematical and does not worry about short term ups and downs.  This strategy is easy for anyone to follow and use.  Pi reveals the best value markets and provides contacts to managers and analysts and Country Index ETFs so almost anyone can create and follow their own strategy.

The costs are low and this type of ETF is one of the hardest for institutions to cheat.  Expense ratios for most ETFs are lower than those of the average mutual fund.  Little knowledge, time, management or guesswork are required.  The investment is simply a diversified portfolio of good value indices.  Investments in an index are like investments in all the shares of a good value market.

Pi opens insights to numerous long term cycles that most investors miss because they have not been investing long enough to see them.

The Pi subscription is normally $99 per annum but as a club member you receive Pi at no charge and save an additional $99.

Profit from the US dollar’s fall.

In the 1980s, a remarkable set of two economic circumstances helped anyone who spotted them become remarkably rich.  Some of my readers made enough to retire.  Others picked up 50% currency gains.  Then the cycle ended.  Warren Buffett explained the importance of this ending in a 1999 Fortune magazine interview.  He said:  Let me summarize what I’ve been saying about the stock market: I think it’s very hard to come up with a persuasive case that equities will over the next 17 years perform anything like—anything like—they’ve performed in the past 17!

Club members receive a report about opportunity in the  current strength of the US dollar is a second remarkable similarity to 30 years ago.   The dollar rose along with Wall Street.  Profits came quickly over three years.  Then the dollar dropped like a stone, by 51%  in just two years.  A repeat of this pattern is growing and could create up to 50% extra profit if we start using strong dollars to accumulate good value stock market ETFs in other currencies.

This is the most exciting opportunity I have seen since we started sending our reports on international investing ideas more than three decades ago.  The trends are so clear that I created a short, but powerful report “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More.”   This report shows how to earn an extra 50% from currency shifts with even small investments.  I kept the report short and simple, but included links to 153 pages of  Good Value Stock Market research and Asset Allocation Analysis.

The report shows 20 good value investments and a really powerful tactic that shows the most effective and least expensive way to accumulate these bargains in large or even very small amounts (less than $5,000).  There is extra profit potential of at least 50% so the report is worth a lot.

This report sells for $29.95 but when you become a club member you receive the report, “Three Currency Patterns For 50% Profits or More” FREE.

Plus get the $39.99 report, “The Platinum Dip 2019” free.

With investors watching global stock markets bounce up and down, many missed two really important profit generating events.  The price of silver dipped below $14 an ounce as did shares of the iShares Silver ETF (SLV).   The second event is that the silver gold ratio hit 80 and has remained near this level, compared to a range of the 230s only two years ago.

Now there is a new distortion ready to ripen in the year ahead.

These two events are a strong sign to invest in precious metals.

I prepared a special report “Platinum Dip 2019”.   The report explains the exact conditions you need to make leveraged precious metal speculations that can increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.  The purpose of the report is to share long term lessons about speculating in precious metals gained through 30 years of speculating and investing in gold and silver.

The low price of silver offers special value now so I want to send you this report because the “Platinum Dip 2018” offers enormous profit potential in 2018.

The report “Platinum Dip 2019” sells for $39.95 but club members receive it free as well.

The $39.95 new “Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere Report” is also free.

There is an incredible new economy that’s opening for those who know what to do.  There are great new opportunities and many of them offer enormous income potential but also work well in disaster scenarios.

There are are specific places where you can reduce your living expenses and easily increase your income.  Scientific research has shown that being in such places actually make you smarter and healthier.  Top this off with the fact that they provide tax benefits as well and you have to ask, “Where are these places?”.

Learn about these specific places.  More important learn what makes them special.  Discover seven freedom producing steps that you can use to find other similar places of opportunity.

The report includes a tax and career plan broken into four age groups, before you finish school, from age 25 to 50 – age 50-to 65 and what to do when you reach the age where tradition wants you to re-tire.  (Another clue-you do not need to retire and probably should not!)

The report is very specific because it describes what Merri and I, our children and even my sister and thousands of our readers have done and are doing, right now.

Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere focuses on a system that takes advantage of living in Smalltown USA, but earning locally and globally.

This report is available online for $39.99 but International Club members receive it free.

The Essential Oil Lady is Back


The essential oil lady is back… even stronger. This creates savings shown below.

During the summer I use essential oils to keep cool.

The essences of flowers and plants have been used in holistic healing traditions such as ayurveda for centuries. The sense of smell is the fastest acting, most powerful means of creating balance.

I use Lavender mist and a blend of Ylang Ylang, Lavender and peppermint.  They are perfect for me when feeling hot and bothered, or when temperatures are when its soaring outside.

I was concerned about my supply. Our friend Candace Newman who had supplied us with our essential oils for years had retired… I thought.

candace-essential-oils

Candace Newman… the Essential Oil Lady with Merri and me and an Ecuadorian Taita Yatchak at a fire ceremony at our North Carolina farm.

One of the ways I maintain my health and vitality balance is with essential oils. I use them almost every morning and evening.

For years Candace traveled with Merri and me to Ecuador and visited us at our North Carolina farm to study shamans and their use of these oils… known as aqua flora.

So we purchased all our oils from her and were a bit worried when last fall she announced her retirement.

Merri and I really stocked up at that time and were wondering what we would do when we ran out.

All of Candace’s formulas are handmade in the forest and mountains of Colorado, USA.  Her proprietary formulas were developed over the past 18 years of her Aromatherapy private practice.  The benefits for us have been many-fold so we and and other of her clients wanted to continue purchasing them because the the products had passed the test of time.  Her pure essential oils are gathered from around the world and are of the highest quality to insure their medicinal properties.

She uses no synthetic fragrances. Her blends are of the highest quality ingredients and her  formulas include base ingredients such as Organic Golden Jojoba, aloe and vegetable glycerin.

We wondered who would supply us as we had complete faith in Candace’s knowledge, reliability and  integrity to provide the purest of oils.

This is why I am so pleased to announce that Candace… the Oil Lady…is back in business.

After a sabbatical last winter, Candace recently wrote:  We offer you the benefits of these wonderful products to assist you in creating a continual increase in your total sense of well being. They are for external use and are a profound part of any wellness program.

There comes a time in life’s processes where in order to move forward, often one needs to stop, evaluate, make a course correction and move on. So our course correction is to go back to the company’s original name, and refine our formulas & product line to what the test of time & our customers’ purchases have shown us are most valuable.

We are delighted and have already ordered some more of her products as gifts.  All we give our children and family for birthdays, Christmas and such are flowers, massages and essential oils from Candace.

Candace has also improved and simplified her formulas. She wrote:

Many of you know our OLA Seven Massage Blends that were the result on my private practice. The past several years have shown us that perhaps we could serve you better with fewer blends.

In the name of “simple” … so we can help people receive the benefits of genuine essential oils blends with fewer bottles, we “distilled” our previous OLA 7 massage blends down to the NEW OLA Four Blends. These are blends with the purest of essential oils from around the world in 100% Organic Golden Jojoba. They are at a safe percentage for body and face massage, wonderful bath oils, and after shower blends. Each of the OLA Four Massage Blends has its own special “medicine and message”, and there will be times where each  one is just what we need at that time. The color chart gives the contents of each blend and lists their properties for use. They are as follows:

Soother:     Cedarwood, Geranium, Patchouli, Orange, Ylang Ylang

Balancer:     Lavender, Orange, Peppermint, Roman Chamomile,

Stimulator: Eucalyptus, Cypress, Lemon, Lavender, Rosemary

Comforter: Lavender, Rose otto, Frankincense

Each of these four blends is available individually in a healing cobalt glass bottle with pump top for home or office.

Or there is the quarter size sampler pack.  This is what Merri and I travel with.

To get her business growing again Candace is offering 10% off on all purchases through August 15th.

This savings covers all of her single essential oils as well.

How We Can Serve You

How to Have Real Safety

garyheadshot

There are only three reasons why we should invest.  We invest for income.  We invest to resell our investments for more than we had invested.  We invest to make our world a better place.

We should not invest for fun, excitement or to get rich quick, or in a panic due to market corrections.

This is why the core Pi model portfolio (that forms the bulk of my own equity portfolio) consists of 19 shares and this position has not changed in over two years.  During these two years we have been steadily accumulating the same 19 shares and have not traded once.

The portfolio has done well in 2017, up 22.6%, better than the DJI Index.

However one or even two year’s performance is not enough data to create a safe strategy.

The good value portfolio above is based entirely on good value financial information and mathematically based safety programs developed around models that date back 91 and 24 years.

The Pifolio is a theoretical portfolio of MSCI Country Benchmark Index ETFs that cover all the good value markets developed combining my 50 years of investing experience with study of the mathematical market value analysis of Keppler Asset Management and the mathematical trend analysis of Tradestops.com.

In my opinion, Keppler is one of the best market statisticians in the world.  Numerous very large fund managers, such as State Street Global Advisers, use his analysis to manage over $2.5 billion of funds.

The Pifolio analysis begins with Keppler who continually researches international major stock markets and compares their value based on current book to price, cash flow to price, earnings to price, average dividend yield, return on equity and cash flow return.  He compares each major stock market’s history.

Fwd: keppler

Michael Kepler CEO Keppler Asset Management.

Michael is a brilliant mathematician.  We have tracked his analysis for over 20 years.   He continually researches international major stock markets and compares their value based on current book to price, cash flow to price, earnings to price, average dividend yield, return on equity and cash flow return.  He compares each stock market’s history.  From this, he develops his Good Value Stock Market Strategy and rates each market as a Buy, Neutral or Sell market.  His analysis is rational, mathematical and does not cause worry about short term ups and downs.  Keppler’s strategy is to diversify into an equally weighted portfolio of the MSCI Indices of each BUY market.

This is an easy, simple and effective approach to zeroing in on value because little time, management and guesswork is required.  You are investing in a diversified portfolio of good value indices.

A BUY rating for an index does NOT imply that any stock in that country is an attractive investment, so you do not have to spend hours of research aimed at picking specific shares.  It is not appropriate or enough to instruct a stockbroker to simply select stocks in the BUY rated countries.  Investing in the index is like investing in all the shares in the index.  You save time because all you have to do is invest in the ETF to gain the profit potential of the entire market.

To achieve this goal of diversification the Pifolio consists of Country Index ETFs.

Country Index ETFs are similar to an index mutual fund but are shares normally traded on a major stock exchange that tracks an index of shares in a specific country.  ETFs do not try to beat the index they represent.  The management is passive and tries to emulate the performance of the index.

A country ETF provides diversification into a basket of equities in the country covered.  The expense ratios for most ETFs are lower than those of the average mutual fund as well so such ETFs provide diversification and cost efficiency.

Here is the Pifolio I personally use.

70% is diversified into Keppler’s good value (BUY rated) developed markets: Australia, Austria, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Norway, Singapore and the United Kingdom.

30% of the Pifolio is invested in Keppler’s good value (BUY rated) emerging markets: Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, the Czech Republic, South Korea, Malaysia and Taiwan.

The Pifolio consists of iShares ETFs that invested in each of the MSCI indicies of the good value BUY markets.

For example, the iShares MSCI Australia (symbol EWA) is a Country Index ETF that tracks the investment results the Morgan Stanley Capital Index MSCI Australia Index which is composed mainly of large cap and small cap stocks traded primarily on the Australian Stock Exchange mainly of companies in consumer staples, financials and materials. This ETF is non-diversified outside of Australia.

iShares is owned by Black Rock, Inc. the world’s largest asset manager with over $4 trillion in assets under management.

Pi uses math to reveal the best value markets then protects its positions using more math created by Richard Smith founder and CEO of Tradestops.com to track each share’s trend.

We use Smith’s  algorithms that calculate momentum of the good value markets.

dr richard smith

The Stock State Indicators at Tradestops.com act as a full life-cycle measure that indicates the health of each stock. They are designed to tell you at a glance exactly where any stock stands relative to Dr. Smith’s proprietary algorithms.

Kepppler’s analysis shows the value of markets.  The SSI signal indicates the current trend of each stock (performing well, or in a period of correction, or stopped out).

The SSI tells you one of five things:

Screen Shot 2017-08-08 at 6.51.59 AM

Screen Shot 2017-08-08 at 6.52.12 AM

Screen Shot 2017-08-08 at 6.52.22 AM

Akey component of the Stock State Indicator (SSI) system is momentum based on the latest 521 days of trading.  A stock changes from red to green in the SSI system only after it has already gone up a healthy amount and has started a solid uptrend.

How SSI Alerts Are Triggered

If the position has already moved more than its Volatility Quotient below a recent high, the SSI Stop Loss will trigger.  This is an indicator that the position has corrected more than what is normal for this stock.  It means to take caution.

Below is an example of how SSIs work.  This example shows the Developed Market Pifolio that we track at Tradestops.com.

tradestops

Equal Weight Good Value Developed Market Pifolio.

At the time this example was copied, all the ETFs in the Developed Market Pifolio (above) currently had a green SSI.

We do not know when the US market will fall.  We only do know that it will.  We also do not know if, when the US market corrects, global markets will follow or rise instead.

The fact that the Pifilios are invested in good value markets reduces long term risk.

Additional protection is added by using trailing stops based on the 521 day momentum of each stock in the Pifolio.

Take for example the graph below from our Tradestops account that shows the iShares MSCI United Kingdom ETF.  This ETF had a green SSI and a Volatility Index (VQ) of 13.26%.  This means the share can move 13.26% before there is a trend shift.

tradestops

iShares MSCI United Kingdom ETF (Symbol EWU)

Pi purchased the share at$31.26 and in this example the share was $34.43 and rising.  Tradestop’s algorithms suggested that if the price drops to $31.69 its momentum would have stopped and it would have shifted into trading sideways.   The stop loss price is currently $29.86.  If EWU continues to rise, both the yellow warning and the stop loss price will rise as well.

When the US stock market bull ends, know one knows for sure how long or how severe the correction will be.

When the bear arrives, what will happen to global and especially good value markets?

No  one knows the answer to this question.

What we do know is that the equally weighted, good value market Pifolios have the greatest potential long term and that math based trailing stops can be used to protect against a secular global stock market correction when it comes.

My fifty years of global investing experience helps take advantage of numerous long term cycles that are part of the universal math that affects all investments.

You also begin receiving regular emailed Pifiolio updates and online access to all the Pifolio updates of the last two years.  Each update examines the current activity in a Pifolio, how it is changing, why and how the changes might help your investing or not.

Included in the basic training is an additional 120 page PDF value analysis of 46 stock markets (23 developed markets and 23 emerging stock markets).  This analysis looks at the price to book, price to earnings, average yield and much more.

You also receive two special reports.

In the 1980s, a remarkable set of two economic circumstances helped anyone who spotted them become remarkably rich.  Some of my readers made enough to retire.  Others picked up 50% currency gains.  Then the cycle ended.  Warren Buffett explained the importance of this ending in a 1999 Fortune magazine interview.  He said:  Let me summarize what I’ve been saying about the stock market: I think it’s very hard to come up with a persuasive case that equities will over the next 17 years perform anything like—anything like—they’ve performed in the past 17!

I did well then, but always thought, “I should have invested more!”  Now those circumstances have come together and I am investing in them again.

The circumstances that created fortunes 30 years ago were an overvalued US market (compared to global markets) and an overvalued US dollar.  The two conditions are in place again!

30 years ago, the US dollar rose along with Wall Street.  Profits came quickly over three years.  Then the dollar dropped like a stone, by 51%  in just two years.  A repeat of this pattern is growing and could create up to 50% extra profit if we start using strong dollars to accumulate good value stock market ETFs in other currencies.

This is the most exciting opportunity I have seen since we started sending our reports on international investing ideas more than three decades ago.  The trends are so clear that I have created a short, but powerful report “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More.”   This report shows how to earn an extra 50% from currency shifts with even small investments.  I kept the report short and simple, but included links to 153 pages of  Good Value Stock Market research and Asset Allocation Analysis.

The report shows 20 good value investments and a really powerful tactic that shows the most effective and least expensive way to accumulate these bargains in large or even very small amounts (less than $5,000).  There is extra profit potential of at least 50% so the report is worth a lot.

This report sells for $29.95 but in this special offer, you receive the report, “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More” FREE when you subscribe to Pi.

Plus get the $39.95 report “The Platinum Dip 2018” free.

With investors watching global stock markets bounce up and down, many missed two really important profit generating events over the last two years.  The price of silver dipped below $14 an ounce as did shares of the iShares Silver ETF (SLV).   The second event is that the silver gold ratio hit 80, compared to a ratio of 230 only two years before.

In September 2015, I prepared a special report “Silver Dip 2015” about a silver speculation, leveraged with a British pound loan, that could increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.  The tactics described in that report generated 62.48% profit in just nine months.

I have updated this report and added how to use the Dip Strategy with platinum.   The “Platinum Dip 2018” report shares the latest in a series of long term lessons gained through 40 years of speculating and investing in precious metals.  I released the 2015 report, when the gold silver ratio slipped to 80.  The ratio has corrected and that profit has been taken and now a new precious metals dip has emerged.

I have prepared a new special report “Platinum Dip 2018” about a leveraged speculation that can increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.

You also learn from the Value Investing Seminar, our premier course, that we have been conducting for over 30 years.  Tens of thousands of delegates have paid up to $999 to attend.  Now you can join the seminar online FREE in this special offer.

This three day course is available in sessions that are 10 to 20 minutes long for easy, convenient learning.   You can listen to each session any time and as often as you desire.

The sooner you hear what I have to say about current markets, the better you’ll be able to cash in on perhaps the best investing opportunity since 1982.

seminars

Tens of thousands have paid up to $999 to attend.

In 2018 I celebrate my 52nd anniversary in the investing business and 50th year of writing about global investing.  Our reports and seminars have helped readers have better lives, with less stress yet make fortunes during up and down markets for decades.  This information is invaluable to investors large and small because even small amounts can easily be invested in the good value shares we cover in our seminar.

Stock and currency markets are cyclical.  These cycles create extra profit for value investors who invest when everyone else has the markets wrong.  One special seminar session looks at how to spot value from cycles.  Stocks rise from the cycle of war, productivity and demographics.  Cycles create recurring profits.  Economies and stock markets cycle up and down around every 15 to 20 years as shown in this graph.

stock-Charts

The effect of war cycles on the US Stock Market since 1906.

Bull and bear cycles are based on cycles of human interaction, war, technology and productivity.  Economic downturns can create war.

The chart above shows the war – stock market cycle.  Military struggles (like the Civil War, WWI, WWII and the Cold War: WW III) super charge inventiveness that creates new forms of productivity…the steam engine, the internal combustion engine,  production line processes, jet engines, TV, farming techniques, plastics, telephone, computer and lastly during the Cold War, the internet.  The military technology shifts to domestic use.  A boom is created that leads to excess.  Excess leads to correction. Correction creates an economic downturn and again to war.

Details in the online seminar include:

* How to easily buy global currencies, shares and bonds.

* Trading down and the benefits of investing in real estate in Small Town USA.  We will share why this breakout value is special and why we have been recommending good value real estate in this area since 2009.

* What’s up with gold and silver?  One session looks at my current position on gold and silver and asset protection.  We review the state of the precious metal markets and potential problems ahead for US dollars.  Learn how low interest rates eliminate  opportunity costs of diversification in precious metals and foreign currencies.

* How to improve safety and increase profit with leverage and staying power.  The seminar reveals Warren Buffett’s value investing strategy from research published at Yale University’s website.  This research shows that the stocks Buffet chooses are safe (with low beta and low volatility), cheap (value stocks with low price-to-book ratios), and high quality (stocks of companies that are profitable, stable, growing, and with high payout ratios). His big, extra profits come from leverage and staying power.  At times Buffet’s portfolio, as all value portfolios, has fallen, but he has been willing and able to wait long periods for the value to reveal itself and prices to recover.

keppler asset management chart

This chart based on a 45 year portfolio study shows that holding a diversified good value portfolio (based on a  good value strategy) for 13 month’s time, increases the probability of out performance to 70%.  However those who can hold the portfolio for five years gain a 88% probability of beating the bellwether in the market and after ten years the probability increases to 97.5%.

Time is your friend when you use a good value strategy.  The longer you can hold onto a well balanced good value portfolio, the better the odds of outstanding success.

Learn how much leverage to use.  Leverage is like medicine, the key is dose.  The best ratio is normally 1.6 to 1.  We’ll sum up the strategy; how to leverage cheap, safe, quality stocks and for what period of time based on the times and each individual’s circumstances.

Learn to plan in a way so you never run out of money.  The seminar also has a session on the importance of having and sticking to a plan.  See how success is dependent on conviction, wherewithal, and skill to operate with leverage and significant risk.  Learn a three point strategy based on my 50 years of investing experience combined with wisdom gained from some of the world’s best investment managers and economic mathematical scientists.

The online seminar also reveals  the results of a $80,000 share purchase cost test that found the least expensive way to invest in good value.  The keys to this portfolio are good value, low cost, minimal fuss and bother.  Plus a great savings of time.  Trading is minimal, usually not more than one or two shares are bought or sold in a year.  I wanted to find the very least expensive way to create and hold this portfolio so I performed this test.

I have good news about the cost of the seminar as well.   For almost three decades the seminar fee has been $799 for one or $999 for a couple. Tens of thousands paid this price, but online the seminar is $297.

Last Chance Essential Oils


We sadly received the note below about last chance essential oils from our friends John and Candace Newman.

Candace spent many years traveling with us and the yatchaks in Ecuador.

Here is Candace with the Taita Yatchak, our daughter Francesca and friends on a journey through Ecuador and Peru studying mystical sites.

Merri and I always use Candace’s oils because she gained so much wisdom on these trips and through her lifetime global studies.

So we were saddened to read this note: Gary & Merri, our oil sales will close October 15, 2009.

After 18 years, the decision to stop selling our Aromatherapy oil products has not been made lightly.  After much evaluation & contemplation, we believe it is the right thing to do. On October 15th, the retail and wholesale shopping carts will close. Our oils & formulas are 10% off from now until October 15th … or until the supply runs out.

We know many of you use our oils & formulas daily. This discount helps you stock up on the ones you love, and is our “early” Christmas and Holiday Sale we normally run in November.  With proper care our products last well over a year.

See August’s newsletter about proper care.

I’m continuing my free monthly Newsletter to keep you informed of classes, education and company changes; the subscription to my Aromatherapy Guides for those who want continuing education; Consultations and Treatments; and more Classes. My Classes on DVD’s and The Good Medicine Tin® will continue to be available to purchase by fax, email or phone.

John will continue to be our webmaster and will pursue some of his other special interests dear to his heart.

Aromatherapy and essential oils are one of the many soulful elements that truly make a difference in people’s lives and health around the world.  We appreciate you and are grateful for your continued support and loyalty over the past 20 years of my work with essential oils.

Our Best to You,
Candace and John Newman

I have personally loaded up with a year’s supply of  Rose Otto, Lavender, Geranium, Lemon, and Orange the oils that I use the most.

You can get more information on the oils they have left in inventory here.

Peppermint 10 ml

Eucalyptus 10 ml

Orange 10 ml

Frankincense 10 ml

Candace also still has some essential oil mists that offer a gentle Aroma therapeutic wash that can have immediate and profound benefits, calming the mind, balancing the emotions, nurturing the skin, cleansing the body and surrounding environment.

Merri and I especially use essential oil mists when we travel or are in public places. On the plane they freshen and purify the stale airline environment. We also use them to relieve the heat of the summer.

Essential oil mists also make great stress-free gifts.  They are always in our Christmas and birthday mix.

Candace is offering a sample of four 1 oz essential oil mist blends each in amber plastic bottle with zipper carrying case with the discount.    An Essential Oil Mist Chart is included free.

It contains:

* Lavender Mist
* Lavender-Peppermint Mist
* Lavender-Rose Mist
* Rejuvenation Mist

The Lavender Mist contains aloe vera, pure water, vegetable glycerin and pure Lavender essential oil. This mist cleanses and hydrates the face, calms the mind and body tissue, balances the emotions.  It is excellent for sunburn, itching or rashes.

Lavender-Peppermint Mist contains aloe vera, pure water, vegetable glycerin, Lavender and Peppermint pure essential oils. This mist is uplifting and refreshing. It comforts and soothes the emotions and provides a feeling of  “menthol lift” lightness.  Keep one in refrigerator for a cool refreshing mist.  Use whenever feeling sluggish, anxious, or out of balance.

Lavender-Rose Mist contains Aloe vera, pure water, vegetable glycerin and Lavender and Rose Otto pure essential oils.

Rejuvenation Mist contains Aloe vera, pure water, vegetable glycerin, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Frankincense, Geranium and Rose Otto pure essential oils. This mist cleanses and hydrates the face.
