The Value of Trees


Let’s look at the science, art and value of trees and many ways we can love (and profit ) from them.

I love reading Elizabeth Barret Browning’s  Sonnet 43 “How Do I Love Thee”.  I think first about my wife, children, mom, sister, friends and you, the reader, who adds so much purpose in my life.  This sonnet also reflects how I feel about trees.

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.

Recently I was speaking with Tom Kerr, the editor of Independence Monthly about qualities I seek when looking at real estate.

One quality I pointed out was “I look for trees“.   Tom’s conversation on this subject sparked my imagination about the value of trees.

“Logically,” I told Tom, “trees offer logging opportunities”.  Sometimes land can be purchased for less than the income logging the trees will bring.  Then I have to be honest, even though sustainable logging can help a forest, Merri and I have not been able to bring ourselves to log a single live tree for the 20+ years we have been on our farm.

There are so many other ways to profit from trees. “Let me count the ways”.

First, there are health benefits.

An article at the National Library of Medicine “What’s in a Color? The Unique Human Health Effects of Blue Light ” (1) show that color has an impact on our well being and health.

The article says: A major milestone came with the 1998 discovery of melanopsin retinal ganglion cells, a new type of photoreceptor in the eye. These cells provide signals to the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), the brain’s master clock. They project to many other brain regions as well, influencing myriad aspects of human physiology.

Researchers have shown in humans that light influences hormone secretion, heart rate, alertness, sleep propensity, body temperature and gene expression.

Another article at Livescience.com “Does the color green boost exercises effects?” (2) zeros in on some health benefits from the color of green.

Working out in the great outdoors may produce more psychological benefits than hitting the gym, suggest researchers who say that “green exercise” may boost mood, self-esteem, motivation and enjoyment. But according to a new study, the positive effects of green exercise may have more to do with the color green than with being surrounded by nature.

The study is the first to show that the color green may contribute to the  feel-good benefits of outdoor exercise, the researchers said. The findings were published in the journal Environmental Science and Technology in August.

In other words, we gain health benefits from blue skies and green forests!

I definitely make sure I surround myself with green when I exercise.

I use trees in play.

When my brain won’t fire right in North Carolina I pack up my computer, get the hounds and go work while sitting under a tree.

We earn income from wood.  I have never been able to log live trees but when they fall on their own, we harvest them and put them through a portable mill.

the trees and blue sky.

Most summer days we eat on our porch while looking at trees.  (The porch table by the way came from a tree we salvaged on the farm.)  We build and sell them to add a bit of income to the local economy.

trees

That’s the science, health and profit in trees but the deeper quality is reflected in the arts.  The book Norwegian Wood: Chopping, Stacking and Drying Wood the Scandinavian Way by Lars Mytting sums this up with this poem by Hans Børli:

The scent of fresh wood
is among the last things you will forget when the veil falls.
the scent of fresh white wood
in the spring sap time:
as though life itself walked by you,
with dew in its hair.
That sweet and naked smell
kneeling woman-soft and blond
in the silence inside you,
using your bones for
a willow flute.
With the hard frost beneath your tongue
you look for the fire to light a word,
and know, mild as southern wind in the mind,
there is still one thing in the world
you can trust. — Hans Børli

A March 2017 National Geographic article “What We Can Learn from Trees?” (3) also shows and tells why we should look upon trees with wonder.

One of the trees that article shows is…

trees

a Montezuma cypress known as el Árbol del Tule.  The trunk, 119 feet in circumference and roughly 38 feet in diameter, supports a crown the size of almost two tennis courts.

Here is another spectacular lesson we can learn from trees the article shares.

trees

This Pando clone featured in the National Geographic spread is described:

Made up of 47,000 tree trunks covering 106 acres and weighing some 13 million pounds, is real.  It’s a single organism, a quaking aspen that began life as a single seed—possibly tens of thousands of years ago—and spread by sending up shoots from an expanding root system. (Pando is Latin for “I spread.”) Each trunk is genetically identical and no more than 150 years old, but the root system may be the oldest living organism on the planet.

That’s quite a lesson in longevity, of harmony and unity.  Maybe we should look harder at the wisdom of trees in our modern divisive world!

Whatever your reason for looking at real estate, to live on, to profit from or to protect, next time you look, stop for a moment (or two) and reflect on how many ways you can love the trees.

Learn about Independence Monthly below, a publication that can help you live a simpler, richer life among trees.

Regain Control from the Wells Fargo Syndrome

 

Here is how to take back control of your life as big business launches its most serious attack on being small.

Well’s Fargo is back in the news.

Another fraud.

Last year the bank paid $185 million in penalties after creating 3.5 million unauthorized consumer deposit and credit card accounts just to meet aggressive sales goals.

Then in July 2017, it was revealed that hundreds of thousands of Wells Fargo customers were charged for auto insurance they did not need. An Office of the Comptroller of the Currency report says Wells Fargo may need to refund customers more than the $80 million for this cheat.

Now we are reading about an investigation into the bank’s the foreign-exchange dealings.

The cheating culture at Wells Fargo is just one example of how big businesses and government acts like we, the people, don’t matter any more?

The only leverage we had, the threat of taking our business elsewhere, or changing our vote seems to have gone up in smoke?

We are caught in “take it or leave it.

We have become numbers caught in a system”.

Has big government, big pharma, health care or big business ever made you feel ripped off? 

Do you feel like your representative in government is more concerned about his welfare than yours?

Do you worry that your bank and credit card company rip off, rather than look after your savings?

Have you stopped complaining, because no one seems to care whether you are a satisfied customer or not?

Have you had to wait and wait on the phone or stand in a line for hours?

Welcome to our modern world.

Markets are global, technology replaces people.  We have become numbers, rather than human beings.

I invite you to get off this treadmill where we do not seem to matter and join a new movement.  Join us to become a Pruppie like my wife Merri and me.

I am sure you are asking, “what’s a Pruppie?”

Pruppies are those who use changes in technology to integrate the best features of Preppers and Uppies.  We all know about preppers.  They believe that the world, as we know it, is about to end.And we also know about Uppies, upward professionals as in Yuppies, young upward professionals.  Uppies expect their world to get better.

The reality is that the world might get better or it might get worse. 

Chances are it will be better in some places.

Other spots will get worse.

Pruppies are those who will gain either way! 

I invite you to join Merri and me as Pruppies, because we expect the world to get better.  We live and earn based on that expectation but we also prepare for bad times as well as good.  Just in case… the world goes sideways… we Pruppies will still survive and prosper anyway.

We do not give up anything by being prepared either.  We can enjoy the good parts of the new economy, as we protect ourselves from what can be bad.

We pursue our passions in an incredible new economy that’s opening up for those who learn how to start multi dimensional micro businesses, tiny businesses that offer multiple streams of income in good times but can work well in disaster scenarios too.

Here’s an example… there are special opportunities in medicinal crops.  One of the best kept secrets is that 125 medicinal crops, that are currently unsustainable, can be grown on land that is wonderful for low stress living and is extraordinarily cheap to own.

Take Ginseng as an example.  This is a crop with enormous upwards potential due to growing demand in China as well as the Western world.

Pruppies do not accept just the established wisdom.  They look for secrets and one secret is that in parts of the Pacific Northwest Ginseng was an important crop for the local economy there before World War I.

Ginseng… according to the establishment…. does not grow there.

This example shows how looking for secrets creates opportunity.

Pruppies look for ways to make life better in non establishment ways.  New technology creates many new ways to earn multiple small streams of income that have been forgotten or were previously unknown.

goldenseal ginseng

Ginseng and Goldenseal growing in our back yard.  (I know about growing ginseng and want to show you how).  But enough about ginseng.  The earning potential of this medicinal root is just one small example of how to create large earnings in many small ways.

Any Passion Can Make You Rich

Let me hasten to add, I am writer, publisher and investor, not a farmer.

Yet I love agriculture and low stress rural living, so I earn multiple small streams of income in agriculture, plus enjoy the benefits of growing and raising some of my own medicine and my own food.

The small agriculture ventures that Merri and I do are fun and each activity earns a little, plus helps us have better health.  Gardening is good exercise. Eating the fresh food we grow is better than any food we’ll find in big business super markets.

If times turn tight our small agriculture enterprises could become big… in lifestyle terms because I turn my passions into income.

Here are  sun flowers I grow.

international_business070621a_1.jpg

These sunflowers can be made into bouquets and floral designs that stimulate my artistic bent and sell well at the local farmers market.

Anyone can make good money in small time agriculture and its a growing trend.

Pruppies earn in numerous ways. 

Here is what Merri and I do.  We have our self publishing business.

We have traveled globally for decades… tax free and financed by our publishing business.

Writing is a great way to earn.  Writers can work where they want, (here I am writing away in the woods on our Blue Ridge farm).

gary scott

In the winter, I work at our Florida home instead.

gary-scott-images

We have other mirco businesses businesses as well.

For example, we have an orange grove.  Not a good earner right now with citrus greening but with huge fringe (AKA known as tax breaks) benefits.

We have a real estate rental business with annual leases and we also rent though airbnb.

We raise trout which we sell locally in North Carolina.

There are many benefits in having numerous ways of earning.

First, each activity is enjoyable… for us.   Our hobbies are, art, fishing, agriculture and music?   We use each of our passions to create a small business.  This stops us from becoming bored or burned out.  A passion or interest, not the money, is always the starting point we use to find new ways to serve and earn.

Second, the diversification increases the odds that we’ll always have enough income.   Something always seems to be hot so we never live beyond our means.

When you join us as a Pruppie you join a family of like minded souls who are looking to improve their lives by improving three basic qualities of real freedom.

Merri and I begin our 50th year of 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, easy to make value investments.

Many club members find that just one of these three benefits makes membership worth while, but using all three provides added value.

27 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 to gain real freedom in 2018.

#1: The first quality of real freedom is the ability to earn through service.

Have you ever wondered, “do I matter as a person any more”?   Certainly the hectic inhumane modern social structure where business and government all treat us as a number run through a system can make us ask such a question.

This is a life and death question.  The establishment, business, government, law enforcement,  health care,  education,  everything big has grown so large and so computerized that we don’t seem to matter as human beings.

It is Fun & Fulfilling to Matter.

We can regain a true form of importance, fulfillment, wealth and freedom by serving others in a profitable way.  A multi dimensional micro business creates freedom as it redesigns your lifestyle by bringing profit, fulfillment and peace of mind, by helping others as you do what you love.

The way to maintain freedom through service and continual lifestyle reinventions is to “Go Try Things”.

Today we have a global income with a self publishing micro-business with readers around the world, but run from our current homes in Smalltown USA.

May I share how to regain control in the valuable report, “The Pruppie Factor”.  I’ll give it to you free, no strings attached.

As you will learn in this report, I became famous in a very small way (remember small is good) by being one of the first writers and publishers to recommend global investing 50 years ago.

Everyone thought I was crazy then.  Then we led investors to Hong Kong, London, Switzerland, Austria, the Isle of Man, Dominican Republic and Ecuador.

 In 2009 after more than 40 years of residence, business and investing around the world, I returned to the the USA to enjoy a more carefree, simplified life in the countryside and Small-town USA.

If you are thinking about a simpler life in Smalltown USA, you have made a good choice.   Merri and I could live anywhere I want, but chose to live in the USA and on properties in rather remote rural areas of Appalachia and Central Florida.

Background.   I started buying real estate at age 19.  Since that time my wife and I have purchased real estate in five states in the US and eight non US locations, Fiji, London, Gloucestershire, Isle of Man, Hong Kong, Dominican Republic, Ecuador both on the coast and in the Andes.

These purchases have ranged from raw land…

to condos…

to houses… to farms…

even a hotel.

We have owned everything from an old manor house where construction was started in the 1700s.   Here it is, Forwood East in Minchinhampton.  Princess Anne was our next door neighbor, but we bought this house for a song.

small-town-USA

Forwood.

This is our front yard at Rosasamba, our 962 acre hacienda deep in the Andes, about an hour and a half outside Quito, Ecuador.

rosaspamba

In each case we used the same process to find and buy real estate.

Price was never the only key in these investments.  Our decisions have been based on having a better lifestyle and how it helped create multiple streams of income.  For example Rosaspamba was purchased with the idea of creating a healthy and remote healing center.

We seek value within a particular market created by distortions in unrealized utility and value to our lifestyle.

In other words we look for property we love, where we want to live and that can help us earn extra profit.   These values are more important than price.

“Where are these places?”.

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.

Learn about these specific places.  Learn what makes them special.

Discover seven freedom producing steps so can find these places of opportunity.

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

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

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

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

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

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 club members free.

#2: The second basic quality of real freedom is natural good health.   None of us can be truly free until we wrest ourselves from the grip of the expensive, big pharma fueled, health care system.  Plus it has been proven that we can live longer by living in rural settings.

According to a study at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health there is an amazing correlation between living in a home surrounded by greenery and longevity and mental health.

The study of more than 108,000 subjects across America found there was a 12 percent lower risk of death for those who lived in the greenest surroundings.

Subjects with the greenest vegetation around their homes were 34 percent less likely to die of a respiratory-related issue. They also found that those living in the greenest environments were 13 percent less likely to die of cancer.  The researchers were quite surprised by this strong correlation that also extended into mental health.  Subjects  living in the greenest environments were happier and less depressed.

merrily farms

Imagine how working at our trout pond that sits just below our North Carolina home helps keep us stay healthy and relieves stress.

 I have been studying how to have natural health for decades since I first connected the relationship between good health and wealth over 45 years ago.  Over these four and a half decades as we traveled the world, Merri and I have kept a continual watch for new ways to be stronger, more flexible, in better shape and more immune from disease.

After decades of study with experts in Chinese and Indian medicine Merri and I moved to Ecuador and lived and worked with an Andean shaman for years.

Merri and me with Andean shaman.

We learned that good health and longevity come from easy, low impact internal exercises, good nutrition and deep sleep so our bodies are fit and strong and our minds clear.

Club membership shares 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 2013 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 shamanic health reports are about:

#1: Nutrition

#2: Purification

#3: Exercise

Each report is available for $19.95.  However club members receive these three reports worth $59.85 free.

The Third Quality of Real Freedom is Safe, Profitable, Low Stress, Good Value Investing.  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.

There are seven layers of tactics you learn with Pi.

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.

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. 

The Pi subscription is normally $299 per annum but club member receive Pi at no charge and save an additional $299.

 

Club members also receive a report about opportunity in the  current strength of the US dollar is a second remarkable similarity to 30 years ago.  this roert “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More”  shows how to earn an extra 50% from currency shifts with even small investments.  I

Plus get the $39.99 report, “The Silver Dip 2017” free.

 

The report explains the exact conditions you need to make leveraged silver & gold speculations that can increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.

The report “Silver Dip 2017” sells for $39.95 but club members receive it free as well.

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.

St. Patrick’s Longevity Tip to St. Valentine


See Red?  Feeling Blue?  Go Green.

There is a lot of political tension in America between the red and blue that can leave us angry or depressed.  See a cure below when all this stress gets you feeling fried up or melted down.  This is a tip from my Natural Health Report.  Colors can be natural health tools, and the color green can help us rebalance.

When events or the news leave me feeling angry and depressed, I head for our greenhouse or…

gary scott

go out and work in our orange grove.

gary-scott-orange-grove

In the summer, I talk a walk around the farm.

merrily farms

These activities upgrade my mood, because there is power in green.

A good way to increase intelligence is to be in nature.  Often when stumbling in my thoughts, I pack up my laptop and walk the couple hundred yards from our front door to the pond.

merrily farms

I find that the peace, quiet and calm of nature frees any clouds and stimulates my thinking.

Also there is evidence that “nature deficit disorder” shortens lifespan.  Researchers at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health (1) found a strong correlation between living surrounded by greenery and longevity and mental health.

They evaluated more than 108,000 women all across America for eight years. There was a 12 percent lower risk of death for those women who lived in the greenest surroundings.  34 percent were less likely to die of a respiratory-related issue and 13 percent less likely to die of cancer.  The strong correlation also extended to mental health. Women living in the greenest environments were happier and less depressed.

Next time if you are feeling blue or so stressed that you are seeing red….go green.  You’ll feel better.  The odds are that you will also live longer also!

How the Hogberry Helps With COVID-19

Gain Amazing Health Benefits with the Hogberry

Research is showing that excess body fat can complicate the risks of COVID-19.

A recent article in USA Today, “As obesity’s link to COVID-19 grows, one family that lost 24-year-old daughter diets together” (1) tells the tale.

The article says:  The parents and two brothers of Silvia Deyanira Melendez, 24, are all in therapy after losing their daughter and sister to COVID-19 on March 28.  She weighed more than 300 pounds with a body mass index of 60, double the BMI considered obese. This most likely contributed heavily to her Type 2 diabetes, hypertension and a heart condition that required open-heart surgery two years ago.

The chronic conditions that increase the risk of serious illness and death of COVID-19 are now well known: diabetes, heart disease, hypertension and being older than 65. Obesity is less well known or understood. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention groups “severe obesity,” defined as having a BMI of 40 or higher, with the other known “risk factors for serious illness” for COVID-19.

A growing number of studies and data on COVID-19 deaths confirm the link. The extra weight on people in the 40-plus BMI range who contract COVID-19 increases the chance they will require hospitalization, most likely in the intensive care unit. It also hampers the ability of physicians to treat them, especially with ventilators, doctors say.

Body fat complicates many health problems.   For example more than 100 studies have found that physical activity can lower cancer risk and even help cure cancer.  Fortunately researchers asked why and one answer became clear. Body fat.

Studies showed that reduced body fat creates  a 25% lower chance of developing cancer.

Fortunately there is a little known way to reduce body fat that does not even require exercise.? I’ll share more on this secret in a moment.

First, body fat, COVID-19 and cancer? Let’s ask why?

Part of the answer is toxicity.

Healthy bodies naturally and regularly remove water-soluble toxins from the body. Our blood and kidneys flush them away.

Fat-soluble toxins such as metals, pesticides, preservatives, other pollutants are harder to flush out of the system. Fat-soluble toxins must become water-soluble before the body can get rid of them. The liver can do this conversion (bile emulsifies fat-souble toxins into water-soluble). This process requires healthy digestive and detox pathways. When they become imbalanced, fat-soluble toxins are stored in fat cells and brain cells instead. These toxins can remain for decades and create health problems.

The fat stored toxins cause oxidation (free radical damage) and degeneration as well as mutation. Toxins in the fatty tissue of the brain become neurotoxins that can cause cognitive problems and a host of mental and brain imbalances.

Burn Fat to Burn Toxins

When you burn fat you turn on the body’s detox fuel.  Fat metabolism is the body’s natural form of energy. Fat metabolism provides a more steady energy than glucose metabolism and flushes fat cells free of toxins. As the toxicity drops, the nervous system has reduced stress and will naturally burn fat instead of sugar.

This is why I have written a short report entitled “The FAST Way to Better Health” that features a special tea that can help reduce body fat.

The Key is in the Hogberry

I would like to send you a report “The FAST Way to Better Health” that reveals the secret of the Hogberry, FREE when you order my three Natural Health reports described below.

This reoort is only available with my three Natural Health Reports.

These three reports are about:

#1: Nutrition

#2: Purification

#3: Exercise

In this special offer I want to send you a special report on how you can gain better natural health with the hogberry along with three other reports that reveal secrets of health and longevity.

The Commonwealth Fund in its latest survey on overall health care ranked US healthcare dead last compared to 10 major countries.  Despite being worst, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, New York Times have all warned about huge, increasingly costly, health care changes.  There are enormous problems in hospitals and chances are they are going to get worse, with the added complication of COVID-19.

When it comes to health care, we may well be on our own. The very people, institutions and establishments that we should rely on may actually hurt rather than help our health.

Ancient health wisdom accumulated around the world, over the millennia, can fill the gap.

The way to escape the dangers of high cost, deteriorating health care, is to not need it.  Declare health independence… and create natural good health. There are dozens of simple, really low costs steps that can improve health… eating, purification, exercise, even the way we think and don’t think when we sleep.

Ancient health wisdom from around the world can help us reduce our risks of poor health care and help us fight the ever rising costs.

For nearly 50 years my wife Merri and I have lived and worked around the world. During this time, we checked out just about every source on natural health care. We even  spent years living with natural health care insiders, and trying the lessons they offered.

We took thousands of readers to Ecuador, met with shamans in the Andes and Amazon. We helped other readers visit India and also learn great health care ideas from China and beyond.

Since not everyone can go to Ecuador or travel the world, we have created three Natural Health Reports that can help improve the power that your body has.  These reports are concise and to the point. In 15 minutes the first report shows exactly how to start preparing for better health and more energy.

We do not have to depend on the health care and health insurance monopolies for better natural health… or cave into a healthcare system that can put us at risk and charge outrageous prices at the same time.

Our health reports provide information on how to use ancient health care systems to become more healthy, self sufficient – providing our own good health.

The first report is “Sunski?”, the Andean word for good eating, for maximum nutrition and purification.

We started the series with eating because so many of our readers have found that a blend of Indian and Andean shamanic nutrition helped them kick start their health with weight trimming.

Good eating is the first step towards natural health. The first rule of good health is getting the correct nutrition.  The second step is purification of toxins and eating to avoid getting impurities in our body in the first place!

Sunski is a way to eat that strengthens and purifies as it stops adding toxicity from eating.  Yet Sunski is a delicious, healthy “self defined” cleansing process.  One chapter in Sunski shows how to correct a simple mistake that most of the Western population makes which increases the chances of adding and retaining weight by 84%.

Sunski combines lessons about healthy eating that we learned from years of working with all types of Western healers, ayurvedic health masters and then living with an Ecuador Taita Yatchak and his apprentices.

We lived, worked, farmed, cooked and ate with this Taita Yatchak for years while learning “Sunski”.

The “Sunski” report was 50 years and millions of miles of travel in the making.

We’ve invested thousands of hours into learning the skills of health self-reliance and resilience, identifying the best foods and combinations and sifted through loads of seeming contradictions to get to the facts about “do it yourself” longevity and natural health.

But that wasn’t enough – not when our good health was on the line. So we consulted dozens of top professions who know a lot about natural health. We spoke with holistic MDs, osteopaths, chiropractors, Indian vidyas, Andean yatchaks, and other self-reliant natural health experts who live a naturally healthy path every day.

Don’t let the simplicity fool you… years of research went into these reports.

And we only kept the best of the best: this system is complete – and FAST to learn – so you can get started immediately.

We all need to stay out of hospitals and reduce our exposure to modern medical risks and costs.

Why re-invent the wheel? Especially when time is NOT on our side.? We’ve already done the hard work for you pulling together the information so you can create better natural, good health.

Imagine… never worrying about what you eat and reducing the risks of hospitalization and health care’s outrageous costs.

A few of the life balancing nutritional tips include how to:

#1: Eat a balance of fat, carbohydrates and protein.

#2: Eat combinations of food for ideal digestion.

#3: Eat in good spirits at the right times of day while chewing in a special way.

This report includes a complete list of EZ to use recipes that will immediately improve your short term energy… and your long term natural health – so that you never have to guess what foods you need (or rely on the health care establishment).

All of this information is in “Sunski” the first of the three natural health reports.

These reports focus on how to have good natural health so you can remain independent and avoid costly medical care.

The second report shows you how to purify and detoxify existing poisons that have accumulated in your system.

The third report is about exercise… but not the type you would think.

Unlock the Mystery of Key Muscles

This third report unveils one exercise that energizes and coordinates the digestive system by exercising a set of key muscles, not while you are in a gym, but when you eat!  The body has a number of key muscles that regulate breathing, digestion, circulation, elimination and muscular motion.

The third report reveals an exercise you can do at the dinner table to energize these muscles which in turn coordinate every other muscle and organ in the body. Eating in this way for example (most of the modern world does not) energizes just one key muscle that regulates part of our ability to burn sugars and fat.

The report looks at oxygenation, coordination, purification, energy boosting, education, occupation and relaxation.

Here is what others have said about this information:

Though I ate more than ever, my weight dropped and I lost two inches off my waist.” – S.H. Oregon

The life path altering effects from the weekend with you and Merri continue. Thank you again. I have begun to change my diet. Bless you!” – D.B. Connecticut

You are indeed a spiritual pioneer, blending disciplines to create tools and resources for success in this new land of opportunity.  Anyone who thinks this is just all about money is missing the real message: This is about life in its most profound implications.” – W.P. Australia

I want to thank you for the wonderful time. I travailed from California to hear you convey your knowledge in the way you do so well, and I wasn’t disappointed.  The amount of information in the sessions was almost overwhelming, but it’s exactly what I went to hear.” – B.R. California

The technical information I gathered was most not new to me, but I like to compliment you for putting it all in the right perspective and to make it very understandable to all.  What was at our opinion one of the most important gaining of these 3 days is the opening of the new world, this new circle of what you call ‘normal’ people! (I call us ‘not normal’ as a matter of respect to the majority.)  But as we know, all is relative and depends at the point of view of each, His spiritual mind and his opinion about the senses of our being.” – E.V. Florida

People who, among other things, are active and productive and creative and resourceful, whose word can be counted upon; People who realize that spirituality DOES NOT mean sitting in a cave contemplating your navel and weaving baskets, nor does it equate in the Western culture with living in abject poverty.  People who realize that abundance is not a dirty word. People who understand that we are here to ENGAGE life, not to submit to circumstances out of fear and ignorance and apathy; People who don’t just use the most current ‘buzz words’ so they can feel like they are part of the group, but who actually DO something… Builders. Thank you for showing up in my life.” – E.W. Nevada

Good health is the most important asset in stressful times. Beyond the fact that modern health intervention (ie. hospital) can destroy one’s finances, being in good health brings the energy and balance required to make sound investing and business decisions.
