Our recent message on Ecuador looked at how to combine Ecuador shopping for the holidays and to earn extra income.

There are other ways to combine the joys of giving with the benefits of earning. One way is with essential oils.

Essential oils fit all the requirements of a good international micro business… unique… easy to transport and high in value.

Essential oils can help gain better health… increased wealth… and are wonderful holiday gifts to give.

Surviving the stress of the modern polluted lifestyle and high costs of Western health care are major issues in our lives today. Essential oils can help bring better health at very low cost.

Merri and I always send our children essential oils to our children as holiday gifts… just like the Three Wise Men…. Frankincense and Myrrh. We personally use essential oils every day.

This is why we asked Candace and John Newman to create a turnkey business opportunity for readers to help improve natural health with essential oils.

This month there is Christmas gift opportunity as well. We’ll review the turnkey business ideas in a moment.

First, Candace writes this about essential oils and Christmas.

If there is ever a time for Holistic ways … it is the Christmas & Holiday Season. Emotions and memories of family, friends, health and finances can put one over the top. As the saying goes: “Stay Calm … so far so good” … essential oils are here.

True Aromatherapy affects our physical and nonphysical parts, showing us they are intimately connected in a reverent way. Essential oils serve as physical medicine due to their natural chemistry, as emotional medicine due to the aromatic molecular pathway, and as energy medicine due to their high level of vibrational frequencies.

By recognizing the “field” essential oils encompass, the full meaning of holistic and medicine come together. “Holistic” refers to integrated wholes rather than treatment of separate parts. “Medicine” in many cultures, refers to much more than modern medicine. The innate nature of essential oils does not allow us to separate our parts.

Knowledgeable and safe use of Aromatherapy offers the opportunity to connect us to this “field” the poet Rumi mentions that goes beyond borders and limitations. Essential oils embrace the unity of everything.

John, Muga & I are all at work for the holidays at our Base Camp (oil warehouse) in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. Such a special time of year for us … we speak and hear from so many of you. This is now a 20 year tradition for many of us. We are grateful!

Our new shopping cart and website is the result of summer labor. With this done, we invite you to become an OLA Affiliate with us. Offer our products to your customers on your website & receive a commission check every month as a “Thank You” for helping us further our mission to bring the benefits of essential oils into lives around the world.

Candace is offerng a 10% holiday discount and free shipping on orders of $200 and above until December 7, 2011.

I especially like the Good Medicine Tin. This is Candace’s original tin and offers 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. Merri and I use this all the time. Also this tin makes a really great gift. What better to give than natural health?

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

•    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.


Sleep deprivation is a huge problem and the bigger the problem, the greater the opportunity.

Essential oils economically and naturally get to the root of many of today’s stresses and health problems.  This is why we included Oil Lady Aromatherapy as one of the first turnkey business opportunities.

John and Candace Newman have now completed the program and here is the rules for an affliliates and resellers.

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.

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.

Summer Health & Wealth Idea

Here is a summer health and wealth idea with mint.

Native Americans north and south use many plants and essential oils to maintain a healthy physical balance.

Up here at our North Carolina farm many native plants of medicinal and tonic value grow.

Fwd: international health & wealth wild plants

Some are quite large!

We have huge banks of mint growing on the water’s edge.

international health & wealth wild plants

Mint is a herb that is used in summer dishes from lamb to iced tea to mint juleps and even as a garnish on pies. The cool flavor is a welcomed and refreshing relief on hot sultry days. It grows wild near cool running ravines and streams. Common varieties are spearmint and peppermint and watermint.

Mint contains Vitamin A, C, B12, folic acid, thiamine and riboflavin, as well as, minerals such as, calcium, copper, fluoride, iron, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium and zinc.

Mint Health Benefits

Mint brewed in tea or hot water has been a remedy for digestive problems and stomach cramps for centuries. Of course it is a natural breath freshener. It is also a natural diuretic and has been used to relieve IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and colitis. The oil may reduce and relieve the pain of hemorrhoids.

Herbalists believe inhaling mint oil incense helps open the mind and calms the nerves. It has some antioxidant properties and can be used as an anti-itch relief for bug bites or other skin irritations.

Mint can be served as a garnish or dried and crumbled into cold summer soups. It enlivens summer fruit salads.

Dried mint is a natural air freshener and can be boiled as a potpourri.

Peppermint is the Oil of Digestion. This is a general tonic, refreshing and invigorating that brings calm and vitality.   Mint tea is served world wide as a soothing cooling drink and mint is a traditional medicine in many ancient herbal

Candace Newman, the Essential Oil Lady, offers these summer mint tips:

Keep a bottle of Peppermint with you during the day for direct inhalation. Good: energetic menthol lift, clear brain fog & fatigue, increase focus, sinus or headache & digestion relief.

Mint is antibacterial, antispasmodic, antiviral but if using essential oils they are strong so be careful as they may irritate skin if applied directly, always blend with base oil.

Mint for Travel Too

Candace also wrote: We offer a “Healthy Travel Set” of essential oils that contains peppermint oil.

Traveling is challenging to our health due to the air & environment. Drink good water … eat, sleep & exercise for your good health. Carry items in the clear pouch while on airplanes. Cars, buses & boats too!

Keep a Lavender-Peppermint Mist with you for the menthol lift of fresh air and healthy breathing. It also lifts the foggy-head-feelings notorious with travel. Mist head, face & back of neck at hairline.

Inhale from the bottle of pure Lavender Essential Oil for balancing the central nervous system and for the stress and nerves of travel. Inhale the pure

Peppermint Essential Oil is good for motion sickness, jet lag, digestion, and sinus & head relief.

Apply Ear/Nose/Throat Oil to the nose, ears, sinus areas, throat, chest or neck. Put a few drops on a piece of cotton ball for your ears on planes & for sleep.

These recommendations are based on 20 years of Aromatherapy practice. We recommend a Mist, a pure Essential Oil, and a Blend. These 3 methods of delivery contribute to our sense of well-being.

Note: These recommendations do not prescribe, diagnose, or make any claims to cure. Aromatherapy can bring great comfort and compassion to difficult challenge in our lives. Our products are for external use ONLY! Do not apply pure essential oils directly on the skin.

Over our 40 years of business, Merri and I have worked with and used the products and services of a number of wonderful businesses.  Each has a unique product or service that we love.  These companies are headquartered in many places… Switzerland, Denmark, Ecuador, Spain, Canada as well as the USA and all of them offer global potential… business opportunity almost anywhere.

We write about many of the products of these companies often… though we are not paid.. just because we like their products and hope you’ll enjoy them too.

We have started a program to help our readers create their own micro businesses working with these companies as referrers, dealers and distributors.

What a match… tens of thousands of readers, many wanting to earn globally… meeting some great entrepreneurs … really unique global businesses tied together with our communication system that can bring all this: training…. communicating and networking.

We are starting with these five businesses first.

#1: Jyske Global Asset Management  (JGAM)

Travel & Sleep Enhancements

Here are travel & sleep enhancements

essential oils

Here’s help for health and sleep with special savings for the next two days.

Two of the greatest problems that modern technology life has brought into our lives is extensive travel and sleep disorders.

An abstract from a scholarly study entitled “Sleep Disorders and Sleep Deprivation – An Unmet Public health Problem” by the
Institute of Medicine’s Committee on Sleep Medicine and Research Board on Health Sciences Policy, Harvey R. Colten and Bruce M. Altevogt Editors outlines some of the health risks that sleep disorders bring.

Sleep abstract

Lack of sleep is a huge problem that goes beyond health.  Our judgement, our investing, our business, our personal communications can be very negatively affected. Yet so much of the modern world seems to distract from good sleep… beginning with travel.  Evidently sleep problems are everywhere.

Here’s an excerpt from April 2011 Los Angeles Times editorial entitled “What you have in common with air traffic controllers: sleep deprivation”:
Well-publicized incidents of air traffic controllers and others sleeping at inappropriate times point us to science that suggests most people need at least eight hours of sleep a night.

There seems to be an epidemic of under-sleeping these days. This year alone, seven air traffic controllers have been caught sleeping on duty. In two well-publicized cases, pilots were heard nearly pleading with control towers to guide them in. (The planes landed safely.) The most recent incident occurred Saturday, when a controller was observed sleeping at a Florida tower. (He did not miss any calls from pilots.) In response, the FAA has adjusted controllers’ schedules and mandated that additional controllers be assigned during sleepy midnight shifts. Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, Los Angeles/Ontario International Airport in Ontario and San Diego International — among 27 airports nationwide with a single controller on duty during the midnight shift — will be assigned more controllers.

Of course, they’re not the only workers who get so fatigued that they fall asleep on the job. In 2007, a videotape was released of guards sleeping on duty at a Pennsylvania nuclear power plant. In 2008, two pilots flying a small commercial jet from Honolulu to Hilo fell asleep and overshot the airport by 15 miles before returning and landing safely. Less dangerously — except, perhaps, in terms of his image — Vice President Joe Biden was seen either briefly nodding off or meditating as he sat in the audience at President Obama’s speech on the deficit last week.

A sleep study cited in the New York Times on Sunday says the overwhelming majority of people need eight hours of sleep. Not seven. Eight. And most of those who get less and think they’re operating fine on it turn out to be too sleep-deprived to realize how sleep-deprived they are.

It’s tough to make sleep a priority when juggling job responsibilities, family obligations, gym workouts and social engagements.

This is why I am pleased that our long time friend and health counselor Candace Newman… the Essential Oil Lady is offering essential oil formulas that helps ease the rigors of travel and improve sleep.

Merri and I have known Candace for decades… she has traveled with us through the Andes, studied with shamans and used her essential oils.  We give them to our family as our most precious gifts on birthdays and at Christmas.  The first thing I reach for in the morning are her oils to anoint my feet.

Candace is celebrating the 19th anniversary of her business and offering two special oils at a discount through tomorrow.

Sleep Better

The first special is a Sweet Sleep Set.  Candace writes: Lavender from the Latin word “Lavare” – to wash and  clear away. Lavender is the #1 essential oil for relaxation and sleep.

1.    Sit on the side of your bed when ready for sleep.  Lavender Mist your face & head in big sweeping clouds of mist; then closely mist the back of neck at the hairline. This action serves to wash away the day…then mist your pillow.

2.    Put 1-2 taps of pure Lavender Essential Oil on a cotton ball and tuck in your pillow.

3.    With a little Natural Tranquilizer in your palm: apply some to your nose, temples, back of neck and shoulders. Lay down and do a slow, gentle, circular belly rub to relax the mind, comfort the body and soothe the soul.

These recommendations are based on 20 years of Aromatherapy practice. We recommend a Mist, a pure Essential Oil, and a Blend. These 3 methods of delivery contribute to our sense of well-being.

Surviving International Investing Shifts Part V

Surviving International Investing Shifts Part V – Using the Frequency We Call Touch


This chapter looks at how we can use the sense of touch as a from of frequency modulation that expands our skills to survive and prosper in shifts.

Times are changing so fast, it is hard to keep up. This applies to investing, business and all of life.

What we can be sure of is that the future is increasingly unsure.  This is not a negative statement for those who are prepared.  Those who are flexible, who embrace change, who spot trends and act can really move ahead.

The greatest impediment for success is normally the old boys network… the old officials… trying to hold new ideas and new energy in place. Never before have we possessed so many tools to bypass this inertia that would otherwise stifle our creative endeavors.

The foundation of success in the outer world is improvements within… clearer thinking… more stable emotions… broader perspectives… wiser activity… healthier habits… expanded horizons and fortified bravery.

To succeed as change accelerates… we need to hone all our senses.

This report looks at how we can use Frequency Modulation through touch to, live, work and invest better by getting into the zone.

Previous chapters showed how light and sound can make us smarter.

We can also gain improvement in our discriminative abilities through touch.

Tactile Benefits

When my first daughter was born, my grandmother who was a quarter Native American taught me a trick passed down from her mother to massage my daughter’s head every day while she was as a baby. “This will make her head smooth and make her smarter” my grandmother told me.  I made this a habit with all five of our children.

A wife’s tale?  Maybe but it has been proven that one can derive many benefits through head massage.   Seventy percent (70%) of the human nervous system is in the head.  A head massage activates neural pathways to the brain, stimulating unused brain cells, and awakening cellular intelligence.  This awakened cellular intelligence reorganizes the nervous system, enlivening nerves reminding the cells of their function, and creating cell to cell communication.

A massage can stimulate and balance the beta, alpha, theta, and delta brain wave patterns in all the brain hemispheres and create an the optimum brain wave state (the zone).   This state  is creative, healing, and peaceful. Successful people utilize this brain wave pattern naturally and more often.

This tactile frequency balancing goes beyond the head… especially to the feet.

Years ago while in Ecuador, I ate a bad melon in Quito and became ill. That night, between the nausea and high altitude, I passed out. No big deal except the place I chose, a marble clad bathroom lined with lots of sharp hard corners. To this day I do not know how I managed to break my nose, crack the back of my skull, create a concussion and wrench my neck.

I’ve read about near death experiences and mine fits the description, but, as skeptics, let’s just attribute the next moments to a flood of endorphins, laying in a pool of blood on an icy cold marble floor. I was somewhere else, a place so sweet I cannot even begin to describe.

Next thing I remember was Merri, (darn her, I thought) trying to bring me back. She managed to get me awake and into bed and that night and the next two days were a stream of fuzzy thoughts, Shamans and Doctors visiting and not being able to move my head for the pain.

The yatchak came every day and stayed most of the night.  He rubbed and rubbed the bottom of my feet. ” This will reconnect your earth energy,” he would say.  I believe scientists would say he was stimulating neurons in my brain.

Our family has a tradition of rubbing hands and feet.  Merri and I do this for each other every night and when our children were small the children joined in as well.  To this day when the family gets together we all enjoy a great nightly foot rubbing.

History shows that our forefathers figured out the importance of balancing in the tactile frequency range long ago.

5000 BC the Chinese practiced pressure therapy and foot massage.  Egyptian, inscriptions from 2300 BC found in Ankhmahor’s tomb at Saqqara show foot and hand massage.  The Bible is filled with reference to washing and anointing the head and feet.

Indian and Tibetan mystics documented the existence of the Luminous Energy field thousands of years ago describing it as an aura or a halo around the physical body that was generated and received by meridians that run along the surface of the skin.   In China they are called acupuncture points. In Indian that are called charkas. In the Andes. Rio de Luz (Rivers of Light).

These energy meridians are analogous to the circulatory system inside the body. They are described as the arteries and veins of the body’s energy field.

These meridians are frequency generators and receivers… just like a radio.  They tune into frequency signals… however these are very different ones than your FM radio receives.  Stimulating them sends messages to the brain associated body parts. This reduces tension, improves circulation and helps the body deliver oxygen and nutrients to the cells.  All this makes us smarter but there is more.

One key to health, wealth and happiness is a strong, clear mind and effective memory. Yet as we age, mental capacity seems to diminish. In fact most of us suffer some mental shutdown in situations that make us nervous, unsure, or downright afraid. Our loss of mental capacity in times of stress can even become a self-fulfilling prophesy. We worry, and this reduces our ability to deal with our concern. Hence the problem grows.

This mental shut-down is caused in part by a ancient mechanism at the top of the neck that is an important defense mechanism in our body. This point responds to our thoughts and reactions toward everything we experience.  This is a mechanism meant to take over when escape becomes impossible.  The occiput, atlas and axis jam  together scrambling the circuitry of the hindbrain and shutting down half the blood flow to the brain. This creates a possum effect… a last stance appealing to the nature in all living things that avoids the dead.

Our lives of daily stress cause mini activations of this switch-off mechanism.  The mechanism shuts off the blood flow to the brain so it feels no pain. This is good when you have severe physical trauma, but not for day to day stress.  The brain needs a full blood supply to do its job. Stress makes us less capable which then creates more stress.

Massage… the human touch however, relaxes and enhances the blood supply.

A number of scientists at the Department of Neurology, University of Muenster, Muenster, Germany performed different studies. If you care to wade through the scientific language, links to the abstract of their research paper entitled “Learning of tactile frequency discrimination in humans” are below.

In short what the studies said was:  Learning is based on the remodeling of neural connections in the brain. The purpose of the present study was to examine the extent to which training-induced improvements in tactile frequency discrimination in humans are correlated with an increase of cortical representations in the primary somatosensory cortex.  During the first 15 days of training, there was a steep improvement in frequency discrimination, which generalized from the trained finger to its homologue on the opposite hand, and to a lesser extent, to the other fingers on both hands. Retention of improved performance in frequency discrimination 30 days after training was demonstrated for all digits.

Another study by researchers from Laboratory for Human Brain Dynamics in Japan the Department of Psychology at McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario Canada entitled:  “MEG study of early cortical plasticity following multiple digit frequency discrimination training in humans” says: Recent advances in human brain imaging techniques have made it possible to study cortical plasticity during learning using human subjects. Three recent MEG studies have reported plasticity changes after somatosensory stimulation.The first MEG study [4] used the protocol of Wanget al. and showed that extensive training produced areversible decrease in the strength of equivalentcurrent dipoles after perceptual learning, although fusion was predicted. The second MEG study [5]showed that passive tactile finger co-activation for 40 min reduced the Euclidean distance between median and ulnar nerve somatosensory evoked filed. The third MEG study [6] reported that sequences oftactile stimulation affect the organization of theprimary somatosensory cortex after a brief training series. In this work, we used MEG to study early plasticity following multiple digit frequency discrimination training.

MEG by the way is MagnetoEncephaloGraphy a procedure that analyzes the magnetic responses of neurons.

In other words, the researchers are documenting what the ancients have known for millenniums… that the correct types of tactile frequencies help the brain work better.

What to Do?

There are many ways to use tactile stimulation to increase intelligence. Merri and I have a weekly massage by a trained massage therapist.  We massage one another’s hands and feet most evenings and in the morning self massage our face, head, ears, hands and feet with essential oils.

Essential Oils

If you use oils or lotions for massage make sure they are pure essential oils or of a therapeutic quality.   Many oils and lotions with synthetic ingredients can be harmful rather than helpful.

We obtain our essential oils oils from our long time friend, Candace Newman. See more about her oils here.

We believe, have been treated with Phytobiodermie and use their products for over two decades.


Phytobiodermie is a unique holistic method for beauty, based on the energetic principles of traditional Chinese medicine and the 5 Element theory. Phytobiodermie has created a full line of skincare pure products for Face, Scalp, Body, and Bath. It received the Prize for Innovation at the Paris Beauty Show in April 1998.

Surviving Shifts Part III

Surviving Shifts Part III – Frequency in the Range of Smell

Learn below how frequencies in the range of our sense of smell can enhance our health, wealth as they help us survive and prosper during shifts.

See part two of this report here.

Navigating new worlds with old maps does…


not work.  Imagine trying to navigate with a musty smelling old map like this.

Yet in investing… in business… in all of life that’s all we have… an obsolete education leading us into a dynamic future. We need other tools to beat the tyranny of reason.

The economic and social order has fundamentally changed bringing a new set of realities that we’ll have to survive (and profit from) for generations to come.  Neither investing nor business will be the same in the decade ahead. Because markets, societies and opportunities have changed we also must adapt… beginning within. We need to become smarter… wiser… and more aware.Those who do best during these shifts are those who enhance all of their senses and integrate them with intuition.  They can then tap into deeper knowledge and gain a broader, more stable reality.

Today we review the frequencies we know as smell. We can harness great power through smell.  The art of perfume has a long history in the Western World beginning with incense in Mesopotamians about 4,000 years ago.

Incense made its way to Egypt and became very popular. Egyptians carried perfume with them from birth until after their death.

Perfume was important in Biblical times. There are frequent messages in the Bible including the gifts of three wise men: gold, frankincense and myrrh. Moses was commanded by the Lord to “take unto thee sweet spices, stacte and onycha and galbanum…with pure frankincense…And thou shalt make it a perfume.”

Greeks and Romans soaked their skin in oils because it gave them pleasure, and helped protect their bodies from the drying effects of the torrid sun.

The Roman public baths were spectacular, and the baths of the Emperor Caracalla were the most famous. One room, called the “unctuarium,” had shelves with pots of unguents, jars of fragrant oils, and essences in bottles of varying size. The Romans indulged in the practice of applying perfume three times a day.

With Alexander the Great’s invasion of Egypt in the 3rd century BC, the use of perfume and incense became even more widespread in Greece. The Greek Theophrastus of Athens discussed the various carriers of scents, the essential oils and their plant origins, and even the effect of various scents on our moods and thinking processes. He also researched how we perceive scent, and noted the connection between the perception of odors and taste.

Cleopatra, knew the power of scent, and used perfume lavishly.

Nefertiti, an Egyptian beauty from an earlier dynasty, surrounded herself with perfume: containers with myrrh, flacons filled with sweet oils, and handsomely ornamented jars of unguents.

The cedars of Lebanon have been famous throughout the ages. Cedar was used by King Solomon in the construction of the temple; oil of cedar was used to coat papyrus manuscripts to protect them from insects in the time of the Roman Emperor Augustus, and today cedar is sprayed in wardrobes to keep moths away.

The Phoenicians of Syria believed that possession of the sweet-smelling herbs was evidence of wealth. It was prestigious to wear perfume, and owners of large amounts of oils and unguents were greatly respected.

During the reign of Catherine de Medici in France, perfumes flourished. Catherine brought her own perfumer, Rene le Florentin from Italy, with her. His laboratory was connected with her apartments by a secret passageway, so that no formulas could be stolen en route.

Now science is suggesting that the roots of the power in aroma play in our quantum existence literally transporting us to a more intelligent world.

Excerpts from a March 24 2011 BBC article by Jason Palmer entitled “Quantum physics explanation for smell gains traction.”

The excerpt says: The quantum details of a flower’s chemicals may make the difference to our noses.

The theory that our sense of smell has its basis in quantum physics events is gaining traction, say researchers. The key, they say, is tiny packets of energy, or quanta, lost by electrons. Experiments using tiny wires show that as electrons move on proteins within the nose, odour molecules could absorb these quanta and thereby be detected.

If the theory is right, by extending these studies, an “electronic nose” superior to any chemical sensor could be devised.

But how precisely an odorant molecule is detected remains a mystery.

But in 1996, Luca Turin, now of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the US, suggested that the “vibrational modes” of an odorant were its signature.

Molecules can be viewed as a collection of atoms on springs, and energy of just the right frequency – a quantum – can cause the spring to vibrate.

Since different assemblages of molecules have different characteristic frequencies, Turin proposed, these vibrations could act as a molecular signature.

The idea is that an electron on one part of a protein may move, and arrive at another part lacking a quantum of vibrational energy.

“The electron starts at one end of the room, if you like, and it can only make it to the other end if it gives up energy to the molecule in the middle of the room,” he explained.

“Once it’s arrived, you say ‘Aha! The fact that it’s here means that somewhere beteween where it started and where it is now there’s a molecule with the right vibrational frequency’.”

Dr Horsfield and his collaborators have demonstrated nanowires – wires just billionths of a metre across – that can act as the “room” of the analogy.

Nanowires exploiting the effect could be the basis for “electronic noses”

“Mathematically, the theory is robust, and even if it’s not happening in smell, it’s interesting to think it might be a discriminatory process in nature in other ways,” she said.

We shared this article with our friend, Candace Newman… the Essential Oil Lady and her reply shows how smells can help our health and wealth. Candace replied:  Gary & Merri,  I love seeing this quantum physics explanation for smell.  In the early 1990’s, the futurist, Faith Popcorn, gave a talk at the Ritz in Naples and told me that smell was one of her top 10 interests that she projected for the the 21st Century.  I felt this was true in my heart, and would continue to be so, as people and “science” moved into the  amazing and mysterious and not-yet explored effect of our sense of smell and how it works. Then of course pure essential oils is the most powerful concentrated genuine smell there is.

Of the five senses the least explored and understood is the sense of smell. Its direct and raw connection into the brain tissue is the physiological part, then the fact that the part of the brain the olfactory neurons zap directly into is the limbic system….the most primal, non logical, mysterious and least understood part of the brain.

At birth the only one of our 5 senses that is completely developed is our sense of smell. This really makes a statement as to how primal it is and how important it is to our survival … how the baby finds the mother ….  and later on how we can smell danger.

The molecular vibrational frequency of essential oils is so high, much higher than the healthy human body, that it makes sense they can have this dramatic effect/affect on us through the olfactory neurons to the brain.  The aromatic molecule has this electrical pathway to the brain just through inhalation … this is unique to smell & essential oils. Then the instantaneous thought and emotion that is created from the smell is sent to cells throughout the body with the corresponding brain chemical messenger to that emotion. Fascinating….without any effort on our part to MAKE it happen. We don’t have to think or meditate our way into it.

Since essential oil molecules are made up of mainly carbon atoms…then hydrogen and oxygen (Like our bodies)…the electron activity in the outer valance of each carbon atom creates unending patterns and activity. Each essential oil has so many natural chemical constituents that is most cases only the major main ones are known.

The fact that essential oils are lipid soluable, is one reason why smell is so powerful as it connects to the mucosa in our nose-brain connection. Some of our clients have shown me that even with people who are anosmic (lost sense of smell) , many of them can FEEL the sensation (VIBRATION) of the pure essential oil when they smell it, even though they cannot detect a smell.

As Einstein said: “There is nothing more beautiful than the mysterious. Be in awe of the Mystery.”  I love it!  ….. as we continue to explore the expansiveness of how smell & the limbic system connect … they are mysterious in their own right!

Frequency modulation in the range of smell can helps us in business because smells are frequency stabilizers. The sense of smell is so powerful that it can be used to stabilize our thinking and emotions during these times when turbulence has replaced calm as the norm in our daily lives.  Rapid change now is our bellwether in the here and now.  Our sense of small can act as an anchor that steadies equilibrium in times of turmoil.

Essential oils maintain the frequency of their origins longer than any other form. So potent were some of the oils used, 3,300 years after Tutankhamen’s death, a trace of fragrance in the tightly sealed pots of unguents could be detected when the tomb was opened.

Merri and I show delegates at our Super Thinking, plus Spanish Course how to use essential oils to improve the ability to absorb, retain and recall data. If you smell an aroma while learning,  the data returns more easily when you smell the same frequency during recall.

Rejuvenation Oils

Candace Newman is offering our readers a  Spring and Rejuvenation essential oil formula (Candace’s exquisite essential oil formula of of Frankincense, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Geranium and Rose otto that is in her Rejuvenation Face Gel.)  She puts this same formula in her Rejuvenation Mist and is offering the mist at  10% off to celebrate Spring time and Rejuvenation in April.  I use this formula almost every morning to start my day!

Ecuador Shamanic Health Tactics For Winter

We can feel better in simple ways during the winter when we blend two Ecuador shamanic health tactics… using essential oils and showers.

Fwd: andean-hacienda

Daily mists roll over the ridges at our Ecuador Hacienda Rosaspamba.  See health tactics of Ecuador shamans that use these mists.

Here we are February 21, 2011 one more entire month and a day of this darned winter… just until the spring equinox.  Even then… there’s no guarantee that the weather won’t be miserable and cold.

See below see three ways to stop your health from sliding downhill in this miserable weather.

These Ecuador shamanic tactics improve health even in warm weather and sun.

Winter Health Tactic #1: Head South! This is what Merri and I do… to Florida or Ecuador.  Yet we know for most… this is just not possible so let’s bring Ecuador shamanic health and other tactics to you in the north.  See Ecuador tours here.

Winter Health Tactic #2: Get Out in the Cold. Our friend, Dr. Jay Glaser writes about winter health in his book Body Renewal: the Art of Self Repair:

Collective health can be threatened by the frigid winter months with deep snow drifts as people hibernate indoors for four months, egged on by the gloomy banter between news anchors and meteorologists.  The pineal gland, an important modulator of hormonal secretion, is activated to secrete melatonin when the lights go out, helping you fall and stay asleep.  As nights lengthen, the pineal senses that it is time to hibernate.  It can express itself as the wintertime blues. The best prevention is to expose your self to bright full-spectrum sunshine for a few hours a day, ideally in the morning.

When you go for a walk, the senses mind and intellect ingest experiences and are engaged just as much the arms and legs.  There are few activities, including a walk in the woods, whereby the mind can be calmed and exhilarated at the same time simultaneously, the antidotes to both anxiety and depression.  Additionally activation of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems initiates a complex  cascade of euphoric neurotransmitters, including serotonin, endorphins and catecholomines, partially explaining why exercise has been shown as effective to medication at relieving depression.  Unless you have the freedom to fly south, find something you look forward to doing on a regular basis. Walking is the simplest, safest and least expensive – as well as fun.

Winter Health Tactic #3: Use Water & Oil to Start Your Day.

Ecuador shamans use water and oils to boost health in many ways.


Delegates on an Ecuador shamanic minga tour heading onto Lake…


Cuicocha for…


a water and purification ceremony.

One Ecuador shamanic health tactic incorporates evaporation.

When Merri and I lived and worked with an indigenous Yatchak and his apprentices for several years, he explained that he was purifying us slowly from the outside in.  One way to do this was to have us walk in the mists of non polluted valleys.   Another way was to shower or bathe and then do not dry off but let the water evaporate.   The free hydrogen molecules on the mists and/or water attach to free radicals in the skin which is the largest organ of elimination in our body.   This process slowly cleans us through the skin.

This process can be a bit chilly high in the Andes… but this is a simple, powerful, purifying process.


Merri and I with the yatchak after soaking in sacred spring and drying naturally.

Another Ecuador shamanic health tactic involves essential oils they call aqua flora.

Ecuador shamans believe that health is “balance” and illness and disease are “imbalance”.


Balance, is influenced by season and varies by physical makeup, age, gender, personality and exposure to environmental temperature extremes. A central medical-related theme is that there is there a connection between how a plant or food food looks and what it does for your body?  Take the walnuts as brain food, as an example.   A walnut half looks like a brain. The human brain is made up of about 60% of what is called “structural fat” and needs high-quality fats like omega-3s to function properly by keeping the brain fluid and flexible. Walnuts are loaded with omega-3s, which make them the ultimate “brain food.”

This leads Ecuador shamans to use plants in their healing (balancing) process and they view essential oils as the refined intelligence of plants.

Shamans and healers believe that the aromatic plant essential oils are helpful in healing because the fragrances and chemistry reflect the plant’s true inner nature. Throughout history, the oils have been used for healing and are still key elements of many of the world’s non-Western healing traditions.

Essential oils are a concentrated, hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants. An oil is “essential” in the sense that it carries a distinctive scent, or essence and chemistry.

The fastest way to get any information into the body is via the lungs and skin. Thus essential oils carry data directly to the physical chemistry.

So in winter there are ways to combine the science of plants and herbs with a shower.  Our friend, Candace Newman, the Oil Lady explains:

The Aromatic Immune-Boosting Shower

By Candace Newman

Oh yes, Winter is here now … and the natural laws of Nature guarantee Spring follows! Shoveling snow and ice, has given me a deeper appreciation of Deep Rub Gel for the back, neck and shoulders. Hot Aromatic showers are part of the joy too!

It’s often been said that what we read, see, do and think about as we awaken in the morning … will set the pace for our day. What we do every morning … sets the scene for our day and creates our future accordingly. With other brilliant things we choose to put in our minds and bodies each morning, let’s add the joy and therapeutic benefits of an aromatic shower. Having just finished mine this morning with Ravintsara … I’m ready to go!

Winter is associated with “cold & flu season”, so let’s put on our armor of essential oils. Four top pure essential oils are: Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus radiata), Ravintsara (Cinnamomum camphora), Peppermint ( Mentha piperita), and/or Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia). You may choose one or any combination. All four are highly effective for antiviral and antibacterial benefits. They provide excellent benefits for respiratory conditions. Their preventive and holistic medicinal qualities are profound.

Eucalyptus and Ravintsara are top respiratory oils as decongestants and expectorants. Great protectors of our ear/nose/throat/chest connections! Peppermint and Tea Tree are good for sinus protection. If you prefer one aroma over another … chose that one.

Keep in the shower: (1) bottle of a pure essential, (2) bottle of Organic Golden Jojoba, or bottle of a blend. If you prefer one made, our Ear/Nose/Throat Oil (special this month), Stimulator Blend, or Deep Rub Gel are very effective.

Aromatherapy works through inhalation and skin absorption. Your Aromatic Steam Experience gives you all these health benefits. (1) Turn the shower on HOT and get the steam going, (2) Turn it down as you step in and sprinkle 4-5 drops of PURE essential oil on the floor. Stand there enjoying deep breaths of Good Medicine. (3) When done showering, turn off the water. Before toweling off, rub the blend into your skin: neck, shoulder, chest and belly. Use a Palm Blend with Jojoba and 2-3 drops of PURE essential oil, or use a ready-made blend. (3) Optional: Add 2-3 drops of pure EO to a healthy liquid soap.

Transform your morning shower with healthy essential oils to protect your health and lift your spirits. Get up, get anointed, and get on with the day.

Our Ear/Nose/Throat Oil is one of our most effective formulas, helping many people in many ways.

Ear/Nose/Throat Oil




Tea Tree Oil

Winter is nature’s way of taking away imbalances with more imbalance.  This season can be our health’s worst enemy but we can balance with these Ecuador shamanic health tactics that use walking, showers, water and oil.

Learn Spanish in Three Days

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.


A Super Spanish course in Florida.

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.

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.”

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.”

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 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.


OLA Four Massage Blends in the healing 4 oz cobalt blue bottles and chart.

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


1 oz sampler pack of all 4 OLA blends with chart

How We Can Serve You

How to Have Real Safety


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.


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.


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.

What you get when you subscribe to Pi.

You immediately receive a 120 page basic training course that teaches the Pi Strategy.   You learn all the Pi strategies, what they are, how to use them and what each can do for you, your lifestyle and investing.

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.


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.


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.


Here is Candace at our Andean hacienda Rosaspamba and its wonderful mystical views.


Candace with group at Lake Titicaca.


Candace checking out herbs at the market.


Candace on the trip to Machu Picchu.


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.

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

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.

We take delegates on our Ecuador seminars to Otavalo markets.  Many buy enough goods to resell in North America to pay for their entire trip.  Ecuador textiles like these I photographed in Otavalo are popular.

Here are comments from one seminar delegate about the followup from our course:  Gary & Merri –
I know why I get a ‘warm and fuzzy’ feeling when I see your two names in the ‘From’ column of my emails!  I sincerely hope that others are getting that same satisfaction.  Thank you both again for the help and assistance in getting to Ecuador.
