Longevity from Healing Sounds

Music helps you live longer because frequency and health are connected.


I consider playing my piano one of my longevity exercises.

Music can be better than jogging.

Good health, a great positive attitude, energy and vitality are the most valuable assets we can have in investing, business and life.

Music can add years to your life.   Music has been used during healing rituals in almost every culture in the world.   Music therapy has been proven to help with depression, high blood pressure and even problems of sleeping.  Music can decrease blood pressure, relieve stress and elevate moods and immune systems!

Music by composers such as Bach, Vivaldi, and Mozart is especially powerful and our friend, Madeline Frank, a world renowned viola player, has a blog and radio that shows how many famous and successful people have used classical music in their lives.

Her most recent show celebrates the life and work of Jimmy Stewart: Actor, Architect, Air Force pilot, Brigadier General, husband, father, and musician.  The link below takes you to three articles on the power of classical music for education and healing.

I start my day right by listening to classical and Baroque music.

Everyone should do this.  No one is immune from the power of music.  Madeline’s article “It’s All About Discipline!”  By Madeline Frank, Ph.D., DTM  feature Questions for December 2016: How did Classical Music play a part of James “Jimmy” Stewart’s life as an actor, architect, Air Force pilot, Brigadier General, husband and father, and what musical instruments did he play?


This is certainly a worthwhile read or listen.


A Simple Realistic Way to Keep the Mind Clear


A series of simple exercises you can easily do can help reduce depression, a major risk factor in dementia, Alzheimer’s and loss of clear thinking.  Ring muscle exercises have a very beneficial effect on people suffering from depression and help healing from depression.

A new discovery has made it possible for me to share one of my most valuable books that can help overcome depression and numerous other health imbalances..   Though the information this book contains is used in other national health care programs, the valuable health tips therein have been hidden in the US and Canada.   See how this book came to me, why the health care industry does not want you to know about it and why I am sharing this with you now.

ring muscle book

One reason that Merri and I have loved our international business for 50 years is that it has brought us broader health horizons.   One secret I gained is on the book, “Secret of the Ring Muscles” by Paula Garbourg.  Ring muscles include the muscles around the eyes, the nostrils, anus, urethra, genitals and the mouth.

The health secret comes from the fact that in a healthy body, all sphincters work together, contracting and relaxing simultaneously.  They also activate the respiratory system, the gastrointestinal system, the circulatory system, the lymphatic system, the musculoskeletal system and the urogenital system.  Ring muscles are ultimately responsible for putting all the other muscles and all the organs of the body to work.

If the ring muscles are out of balance, then it is enormously hard to keep the skeleton, muscles and organs in good health.


Ring muscle exercises are simple, easy and cost nothing!

Tackle 21 health imbalances such as obesity.  I do the obesity exercise twice a day personally.  It’s as simple as “chewing in the correct way”.  (See 20 other imbalances that ring muscles can address below). Correct chewing releases nutrient molecules so energy from food is more quickly released and assimilated.  This allows the brain to recognize flavors and release the correct digestive juices for that food.

Proper chewing does even more because it stimulates the body’s  sphincter (or ring) muscles that surround the various orifices of the body.

Chewing correctly stimulates the ring muscles and consequently helps exercise all our muscles.

“The Secret of the Ring Muscles” says: Chewing should be done with the lips closed, but with the oral cavity open as wide as possible.  When chewing is done correctly the lower sphincters and intestines can be felt working in rhythm and causing the abdomen to contract.

You exercise the neck, chest, abdomen, all the way down to the butt, just by chewing differently.

That’s it. I exercise every time I eat and no one even knows.  This does not take extra time.  This does not cost a thing and anyone can do it.   Yet this is one of the most deeply profound exercises there is because not only does it jumpstart the toning of the entire body, but helps overcome overeating.   Overeating is a very common problem and is fundamentally a result of poor muscle tone of the oral sphincter.  When our sphincter muscles are out of balance, the body tries to restore them by chewing.

What seems to be the body’s craving for food can be the body’s craving for proper exercise of the sphincters.

With proper exercise the sphincters return to normal operation and there is no longer a demand for more food than the body needs.   It is possible to eat enough without the fear of getting fat.  All you have to do is to make sure to open your jaws widely enough with each chew to bring all the sphincters muscles into action.  This will reduce your body’s craving to eat and will also enable your body to burn up more calories more efficiently.

Can weight control be as simple as just chewing food in a slightly different way?  This has definitely helped me and hundreds of readers I have shared this exercise with personally.  Upon using the technique, my weight dropped and I have been able to reduce the amount of discipline required to not snack in mornings and afternoons.  More important I feel better, more relaxed and at ease.

This simple exercise also helps avoid a blood sugar – insulin roller-coaster.

Northwestern University

Believe it or not in just seconds a day, with no cost, no pain and no contraindications, you can take a step towards being thinner, smarter, less stressed and also stomp out the root of all types of serious disease that begin when we get too much insulin in our blood.

The blood sugar roller coaster begins when we eat too much of something with too high of a sugar content.  Our pancreas starts to secrete insulin to reduce the blood sugar.  Insulin triggers cells throughout your body to pull the excess glucose out of your bloodstream and store it for later use (ie. turn the sugar into fat).  This reduces the available glucose and the brain says  “Hey, guys and girls… eat… sweets… carbs… junk now!”  That little grey guy sitting on top of your shoulders is very demanding.  He throws willpower right out the door the minute the glucose supply starts to run too low.  Then we eat again.  This process creates many of the worst health problems facing us today…too many to delve into here.  The simple fact is, if we eat less and do not start this roller coaster, we benefit in many ways.  This ring muscle exercise helps avoid this tragic medical error.

Now Everyone Can Get “The Secret of the Ring Muscles”.

Learn 21 Imbalances that Ring Muscle Exercises Have Helped

The Garbourg Institute reports that systematic exercising of the ring muscles strengthens weakened muscles and malfunctioning organs and limbs.  30 minutes a day of ring muscle exercises will take pain away – heal, rejuvenate and strengthen the body.  Exercising can be done while driving, watching TV, or sitting by your computer.  No exercising instruments are required!  These exercises commonly result in the curing or relief of pain and discomfort that are induced by:

Aging – Reports from people who have done ring muscle exercises suggest that it is possible to restore affected muscles to more of less competent action by means of these easy to perform exercises. Find out the type of changes you can expect in your body as you continue aging — and what you can do to promote better health.

Arthritis –  Individuals with arthritis can benefit from ring muscles exercise to prevent the joints from becoming stiff and the range of movement limited.  Ring Muscles exercises have been shown to significantly improve function, decrease pain, and delay or avoid the need for surgical intervention in advanced cases. The exercises has been shown to be more effective than medications in treating osteoarthritis of the knee. Exercise often improves muscle strength, endurance and flexibility.

Hemorrhoids – Circulatory problems such as hemorrhoids are often a result of improper breathing. According to Ludwig Hofbauer, author of The Pathology and Therapy of Breathing (Springer, 1921), the act of breathing has a direct effect on the blood vessels.  One prolonged ring muscle exercise helps to flatten the spine, enables the lower sphincter to contract and relax, and helps the blood in the veins to low back as it should.

Asthma / Respiratory Problems – Many people with asthma and other respiratory ailments have reported significant improvement, even with complete normalization of their breathing as a result of doing ring muscle exercises.

Depression – Ring muscle exercises have a very beneficial effect on people suffering from depression and help healing from depression.  People who are depressed usually have a bad posture-their shoulders are slumped, their heads bowed, and the corners of their mouths pulled down.  Ring muscles exercises help the the body start self healing from depression.

Backaches -Backaches are caused by muscle and tendon strain and sprain, muscle tension, emotional stress, poor posture and many other reasons.  Not exercising is also a big reason for back pain.  Ring muscle exercises improve the body’s posture and ease the tension and eventually eliminate many backaches.  There are a number of ring muscle exercises that are beneficial for this.

Incontinence – Natural exercises of the ring muscles are a healthy and easy way to achieve incontinence control and also eliminate constipation.

Scoliosis –  Ring Muscles exercises are found to affect the body’s posture and the back position. By combining ring muscle exercises with appropriate massage, positive results and changes may be achieved.

Improved Appearance – Many people have a “sluggish” appearance caused by poor posture.  One main cause is malfunctioning of the chest muscles and diaphragms resulting from a weak front sphincter.

Road Accidents Rehabilitation – As in most ailments, also people that suffered injuries during car accident, usually require multiple treatments depending on the type of injuries.  They may have suffered Head Injuries, Neck Injuries, Back Injuries, Spinal Cord Injuries,  Internal Injuries or in many cases of Psychological injury.

Flat Feet – Everyone knows what flat feet are.  But not everyone knows that they can often be brought back to a normal state.  Ring muscle exercises are used to straighten the body, these results in the lifting of fallen arches, and the feet gradually begin to work and become more flexible.

Vocal Cord Problems –  Patients who engaged in ring muscle exercises regained control over their vocal cord, gained relief from pain and discomfort and problems created by Acid Reflux .

Ring muscle exercises can also help with Childbirth, Flat Feet, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Bed-wetting, Prolapse of the Uterus, Retardation, Dyslexia, Scoliosis, Speech Impediments, Autism, Digestive Problems and Road Accident Rehabilitation.

The Value of 1st Impressions

Our friend, Madeline Frank, is a world class musician and expert of the healing value of music.  She recently wrote about the value of first impressions and shows three ways to make great first impressions.  I am sharing these valuable insights here with you!

See Madeline Frank live as she speaks about “The Value of 1st Impressions” or read below.

“First Impressions: The First Step in Connecting With Others” by Madeline Frank, Ph.D., DTM

First impressions matter!  How good is your first impression?

As an international violist, conductor, and speaker I have had the privilege of performing concerts around the world and playing for artists:  Frank Sinatra, Lou Rawls, Natalie Cole, Paul Anka, Eartha Kitt and others. Watching these marvelous artists, I learned the importance of first impressions and commanding attention! It all began while playing for Frank Sinatra at Carnegie Hall for two weeks during his sold out concerts. I learned first hand, the importance of First Impressions and how to command attention of your audience.

Carnegie Hall was filled to capacity. Electricity filled the air. The lights were lowered. Silence. The orchestra was given the downbeat to start. Frank Sinatra, old blue eyes, smiling, walked across the stage instantly commanding attention with his hair precisely cut wearing a perfectly tailored suit looking tall, trim, and regal. He made eye contact with his audience making each member feel as a welcome guest to his concert. He begins to sing the song with clear diction, pronouncing each word clearly, painting a picture through words and beautiful phrasing telling the story of the song. Sinatra’s audience was mesmerized by his singing and could not take their eyes off him.

Frank Sinatra between songs told a joke or a story. His concert was two hours of singing with an intermission. The concert ended with the audience giving Frank Sinatra a standing ovation. He smiled, bowed and sang an encore holding his audience in the palm of his hand. The audience left the concert with smiles on their faces.

What are the 3 secrets Frank Sinatra taught about commanding attention and first impressions?

1)   Be conscious of your image. Put on your best attitude. Stand or sit with your shoulders back and your head held high. Wear a smile, have your hair neatly cut and combed. Dress for success in tailored clothes that fit you well and make you feel successful. Sinatra even at rehearsals wore clothes that were tailored to fit him. He always wanted to make a good “first impression”. Belle S. Frank, my father’s mother, was a women’s clothes buyer for a department store said, “Look in the mirror; what do you see?Before leaving for your job take a look at yourself in the mirror and make sure you look your best inside and outside. That includes having a good positive attitude.”

2)   Frank Sinatra looked tall, fit, and trim. Fit people attract everyone. I joined a gym after playing with Frank Sinatra and exercised 3 times a week. I gave up my favorite foods: candy and potato chips and instead ate a piece of fruit, a vegetable like celery or carrots. First impressions are important. They do matter!

While touring in Europe, I found some hotels did not have a gym. So I always travel with my therabands, exercise bands, to do exercises in my hotel room so I can keep fit. By taking the time to make exercise a part of your personal development plan, you will stay fit physically.

3)   Sinatra made his audience members feel as if he were singing to each of them, by making eye contact with them. He sang a song with clear diction, so each word he spoke would be clearly understood. He painted word pictures when he sang, telling the story of each of his songs with beautiful phrasing.  In telling his anecdotes, jokes, or stories between songs, he spoke clearly, at a moderate speed using a pleasing voice.

On my recent concert tour to China, after traveling a grueling 48 hours on multiple flights from Virginia to Xiamen, China; I arrived at their international airport. The Manager of the Xiamen Symphony Orchestra was holding my photo up at the airport. He was dressed in a tailored suit, standing straight and tall, with his dark hair neatly cut and combed. He was about 35 years of age. I was dressed in a tailored dark blue suit that did not show wrinkles. My hair was neatly combed. My viola case was over my left shoulder and my raincoat and concert dress was in a garment bag in my right hand. I smiled back at Mr. M and he smiled back at me. I knew by the look in his eyes that we were going to get along well! His first impression of me was a favorable one. First impressions do matter and set the stage for the future!

As we drove to the hotel,  Mr. M said, “The hotel has just been re-named in your honor the “Music Island Hotel”.

I asked him, “What did they used to call the “Music Island Hotel??

He said, “The Prisoner Hotel.”  I thought he was kidding! “Why, I asked?”

Mr. M said, “When government officials did wrong they were placed in this hotel for safe keeping!”

When we arrived at the hotel I noticed the brand new sign over the building.

Remember first impressions can never be repeated. So make a good one the first time!

Recently I saw the film “The Intern” at the local movie theater.  Robert De Nero played Ben Whittaker, the 70-year-old retired phone directory company executive, who applies as a senior intern for a fashion company, About the Fit. The CEO and founder of the company is Jules Ostin played by Anne Hathaway. Ben Whittaker comes to the interview and later to work, with his hair trimmed neatly and combed, dressed in a tailored suit with a smile on his face and a positive attitude. He wanted to make a good first impression! The other interns coming for the interview looked like they just rolled out of bed.

It’s all about dressing for success inside and outside. First impressions can never be repeated. So, make a good “First Impression” the “First Time”.



Our next Shamanic report looks at the healing value of music.  Learn about all five reports below.

Beyond Chelation Report

This message outlines how and why, in the 1960’s, due to strict OSHA regulations, the government curtailed a simple (and incredibly low cost) amino acid that can help improve cardiovascular systems, increase memory, improve vision, enhance vitality, expand energy and extend lifespan.

One year when we had a Super Thinking Course at our farm, one of the course delegates was a doctor in his eighties.   He had the energy and looks of a much, much younger man.  When asked about his secret of youth he said his vitality was based on several factors.  A few of the habits  you would expect, such as good diet, sufficient exercise and plenty of activity in a strong, purposeful life.

Then he explained another secret of his youth and energy: chelation.

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

Then, he said, he had learned about Beyond Chelation a vitamin-mineral formula created by Dr. Gary Gordon.  The doctor said he found this so effective that he shut down his clinics and exclusively used this simple formula which he (after seeing the results of the formula) felt had better results than I.V. chelation therapy.

Over 30 years of Dr. Gordon’s experience as a clinician, researcher and educator in chelation therapy were behind this comprehensive cardiovascular nutritional supplement, designed to maintain and promote vascular health, mental and physical well being.

Our client and doctor friend gave us a month’s supply of this formula.  He thought it would be excellent for us and would help us with traveling also.  Merri and I tried this product ourselves and felt great, plus we loved the savings we enjoyed.   It was so much less expensive than all the numerous other vitamins and minerals that we had been taking.  We actually were spending less!  In addition this system was so convenient.  Everything was in one simple daily packet.  Especially when we traveled we just bring along a packet for each day we are on the road.  No more loading up pill boxes or bringing bottles (or suitcases full of bottles) of vitamins and stuff.

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

But Beyond Chelation had not been evaluated by the FDA.  Though the product was not intended to diagnose, cure or prevent disease and was only to be taken as a food supplement, the government soon shut it down.

Fortunately the main ingredient EDTA is still available.   This is an alternative for those who should be taking chelation or if if they’ve already had chelation or can’t afford it, or simply want to take advantage of new breakthroughs that permit a safe and effective way to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.

In addition to promoting heart health, this supplement has multiple anti-aging effects.  Dr. Dean Ornish of Sausalito, California, long ago demonstrated in a five-year study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association that heart disease could be reversed.   Vascular disease can be arrested and cured.   However, for those unable to stick to an extremely low-fat diet (below 9% in total fat content) and the meditation and exercise mandated in Dr. Ornish’s program, formulas with EDTA may provide similar effects.   Significant improvements of blood flow to the legs, head and heart of patients experiencing problems of clot, spasm and arrhythmia with the use of oral chelation formula have been so powerful that fewer than 5% of subjects in studies on the use of chelation have had to have heart surgery.

There are many benefits from chelation:

  1. Helps to prevent Arteriosclerosis (Hardening of the arteries)
  2. Helps to rejuvenate your cardiovascular system
  3. Helps to improve conduction in all degrees of A-V heart block
  4. Helps to abolish extra heart beats, skipped beats and rapid heart beats
  5. Helps to decrease ventricular arrhythmia due to digitalis toxicity
  6. Helps as a pre-operative preparation
  7. Helps remove lead and heavy metals from the system
  8. Helps increase American life expectancy
  9. Reduces toxic lead and metal deposits and abnormal calcium deposits
  10. Reduces blood pressure and blood cholesterol
  11. Improves circulation
  12. Improves vision and hearing
  13. Improves liver function
  14. Improves skin texture and tone
  15. Helps prevent abnormal cross linking of molecules that age tissue
  16. Helps to relieve symptoms of senility by increasing circulation to the brain
  17. Helps to relieve pain, hypoglycemia, phlebitis and scleroderma
  18. Dissolves fats in plaque lined arteries
  19. Helps make blood slippery and prevents abnormal blood clotting
  20. Helps to increase tissue oxygenation

How does Chelation Therapy work?

It is a largely hidden fact that the main blood vessel leaving the heart of a healthy 80 year old man has 140 TIMES more pathologic calcium in it that the main blood vessel of a healthy boy of ten. By means of chelation therapy, this unwanted calcium (causing a build up of vulnerable plaque, hardening of the arteries, and potential heart problems) is removed from blood vessels and put into water-soluble complexes (chelates), which are readily excreted through the kidneys. Clinical observations reveal, however, that the amount of calcium in bones is not affected by the removal of calcium in the arteries nor is it diminished by the use of EDTA chelation therapy.

What is EDTA and is it safe?

Chelation therapy (using the synthetic amino acid known as EDTA) has been a standard treatment for lead and heavy metal poisoning since World War II. In the 1940’s and 1950’s, patients taking EDTA chelation therapy for lead poisoning reported improved memory, vision, hearing and smell, and diminished leg and heart pain.  Since then nearly 1,000,000 patients with cardiovascular disease have been treated successfully. Further, EDTA has been used as a food additive for over 30 years, the average American consuming between 15-30 mgs in their diets daily.

Why was EDTA put on the back burners?

In the 1960’s, prior to the current strict OSHA regulations, workers poisoned by high levels of lead at their jobs were given EDTA tablets by their company doctors to excrete the lead. The government, wanting to get to the source of the problem, ordered this remedy to be curtailed and the working environment improved.  Because of this situation and with this order, oral EDTA chelation went into seclusion.

Why is Oral Chelation surfacing now?

Through almost 30 years of comparative case studies, researchers have discovered that oral and IV EDTA chelation therapy (especially when augmented by scientifically formulated nutritive support) improved the functioning of most organs of the body.  Recently, biological age determination testing has gained widespread scientific acceptance, which allows us to prove that Chelation therapy improves the functioning of most organs, effectively turning back their biological clocks.  It also may be a solution to the newly discovered cause of 85% of the major heart attacks now targeting half of the American males in the United States who are over 40 years of age: vulnerable plaque.

Preventive Medicine and Longevity Medicine: the Medicine of the Future!

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

Beyond the Heart to the brain as well

Gain the path to natural health which reduces stress and creates body, mind and emotions that are crystal and clear.

Stress is a major contributor to disease.  Any kind of stress:  weather, physical, bad food, money problems or simply a boss, spouse, friend or government being unfair can clog the purity of our natural health.

Major Gap in Knowledge of the Brain Revealed 

Tiny meningeal lymph vessels that drain dangerous toxins from the brain were just discovered last year through research by a PhD professor in the University of Virginia Department of Neuroscience.  These lymph drains follow a major blood vessel into the sinuses, an area difficult to image and are so close to the blood vessel that were amazingly, but simply missed.  According to Nature, this is a stunning discovery that overturns decades of textbook teaching.  Research is showing that congestion of this purification system is linked to reduced clarity of mind, depression as well as inflammation, autoimmune imbalances.  Because almost every neurological disease has an immune component to it, these vessels may play a major role in improving functions of the mind.

Tweaking the lymph system could become a regular medical procedure.  Improving the brain’s lymphatic system, for example, may help clear protein clumps in Alzheimer’s or rogue immune cells in multiple sclerosis.

While the medical establishments are busy looking for cures to diseases (that will bring them profit), there are ways we can improve our metal clarity, enhance our moods and reduce the risk of diseases in the brain as well as the heart.

The purification report in our three Natural Health reports shows how to clear our lymph system.

Purification Removes Stress

Stress is a major impediment to health, wealth and the pursuit of life’s purpose.  Another problem is that when a source of stress is removed, the results of the previous stress do not all go away.  The body stores stress which creates negative health cycles.   The more old stress is stored, the harder it becomes to deal with current stress.

To improve our natural state of health, we need to remove stress from our day-to-day lifestyle and remove the stored stress in our body in the form of toxicity.  We need to remove it from the inside out, at the most subtle molecular levels in the body.  We also should purify the body from the outside in from the skin into our core.

We need to remove stresses of the past (stored toxins) so we can work on stress in the future.  This is why the second of our three natural health reports is about purification.  I studied for decades with healers around the world because chelation can help kick-start better health.

Here is an excerpt from our health report on purification.

The ultimate form of purification is to be clean and pure.  Yet this is not easy to do.  There are toxic chemicals that can infect us every day.  These poisons can be in our food, medicine, clothes, car, pots and pans, water, air and teeth.  Some of the poisons are even hiding in plain sight, in places that promote purity!  Take BPA as an example.

There are concerns about the effects of BPA on the brain, behavior, prostate gland, fetuses, infants and children.  The Food and Drug Administration is taking steps to reduce human exposure to BPA in the food supply.

Imagine this.  To maintain natural good health we shop at Whole Foods, pick only organic, get only water that is in BPA-free water bottles and carefully stay away from BPA-filled canned food.  We check out and cringe at the higher prices as we examine the receipt, not knowing we were just then contaminated with BPA…twice!

An article is entitled “Toxin BPA Found on Receipts from Safeway, Whole Foods, Walmart”  explained that BPA easily transfers from cash register receipts to skin, where it penetrates at such a deep level that it can’t be washed off.   There was a study to find out how much BPA is on the store receipts that many of us touch every day.  Most thermal paper is coated with BPA and is widely used for point-of-sale receipts, prescription labels, airline tickets and lottery tickets.   A test of 36 receipts from popular retailers yielded some disturbing results:  BPA was found in significant levels in receipts from chains including Safeway, KFC, Whole Foods, Walmart, and McDonald’s. 

We need ways to purify the toxins we pick up from daily life.

There are three reports on how to have better health naturally including the report on purification.  All three are available online.

The purification report looks beyond EDTA at ways to void many of  the toxins that surround us and 17 powerful ways to remove stored toxicities.  A few of the subjects included are:

  • How to Spot Poisons
  • The Daily Household Items to Avoid
  • Healthy Alternatives to the Daily Household Items
  • Toxic Foods to Reduce or Avoid
  • How to Stop Adding Toxicity
  • How to Remove Toxicity with Silver
  • The French Solution to Air Pollution
  • Andean Water Purification that Purifies from the Outside In
  • Andean Spice Purification
  • Food Purifiers that Detoxify From the Inside Out
  • Purifying Baths
  • Purifying Oils
  • Purifying Teas
  • Purifying  Exercises
  • Deep Purifying Systems

The report looks at all the tricks of cleansing the body that Merri and I have learned in our nearly 50 years of global travel.

The three reports are about:

#1: Nutrition

#2: Purification

#3: Exercise

Each report is available for $19.95.  However, I would like to make this special offer that saves $19.95

Order all three Shamanic Natural Health Reports worth $59.85 for only $39.90.

I have written three reports on how to improve our natural health.   These reports have been decades 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 sifting through loads of seeming contradictions to get to the facts about “Do it Yourself” longevity and natural health.

Imagine… never worrying about what we eat ever again and reducing the risks of hospitalization and health care’s outrageous costs!

“Sunski” is the Andean word for eating.  “Sunski” is one of the three reports.  It shows a way to eat that strengthens and purifies as it stops adding toxicity from eating.  Sunski is a delicious, healthy “self defined” cleansing process.  One lesson 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 Ayurvedic health masters and then living for years with the Ecuador Taita Yatchak and his apprentices.

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 clean organic food prepared and served by happy, joyful people.

#4: Eat in good spirits at the right times of day.

#5: Chew in the correct way.

#6: Eat purifying and satisfying meals.

#7:  Adapt eating habits that are suited to individual specific makeup and lifestyle and why such individualized nutrition is better than any specific set plan.

The third report, “Smooth Moves for Longevity” is about inner exercises that make you healthier.  

“Smooth Moves” shows physical ways to gain better health that are too easy to call exercise.  Many of the moves you will learn strengthen the smooth (rather than voluntary) muscles.   Many of the routines go beyond EZ.   “Smooth Moves” are easier (but perhaps healthier) than exercise.

Smooth Moves combine lessons that Merri and I have learned about smooth and easy exercise while living and working with natural healers from around the world over the past 40 years.

Each of the reports is available for $19.95 a piece.  The three reports are “Sunski”on nutrition and “Improving Natural Health through Purification” on purification and “Smooth Moves for Longevity”.  However, I would like to make this special offer.

Order all three Shamanic Natural Health Reports worth $59.85 for $39.90.

These reports can help improve your natural health and the extra energy you gain can change your life.

The mother of one reader in Tampa, Florida who attended one of our health courses wrote: “Hi Merri and Gary: Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!  Our daughter called me from the airport.  She was very happy, excited and told me all about the wonderful time.  She could not stop talking about you guys, about the seminar and about the whole positive experience.

“We want to thank you both so much for your support and care and for the wonderful attention you gave.  I don’t think she could have made it without your help.  Her health is so unpredictable…. She can be fine for a few weeks and then she has a relapse….and, of course, traveling is very stressful for her.  But she has a wonderful attitude and is so looking forward to get her business off the ground…this is the first time in over 6 years that she has been able to ‘get back to work’ and she is full of optimism. T hanks again for being so understanding and helpful. I just don’t know how to express our thanks other than to send you both a big warm hug!”  CT Tampa

The three health reports can help make your life better.  We guarantee it.


Here is our guarantee.  Read the reports.  If you are not totally happy, simply let me know.  I’ll refund your payment in full.  You can keep the reports you have received as our thanks for trying.  You have nothing to lose except the fear of having no way to avoid a health care system that may be worse than the illness.

Days of Wine, Roses are Better With Music

The power of music can enhance just about anything, including wine and roses.

rose music chart

Chart in research paper “Effect of Different Types of Music on Rosa Chinensis”.  Click to enlarge.

Our friend Madeline Frank, PhD, is a world class concert violinist and teacher who uses music in the educational process.

She produces a monthly one-minute radio show that can be heard online. The October session is worth listening to because she has an interview about Giancarlo Cignozzi , a lawyer and musician, who in 1999 purchased a ruined crumbling farm estate with “vines in disrepair” south of Montalcino.

He decided to farm organically to “ensure the best, most natural conditions for making great wine and a part of that process was to play Mozart’s music to his Sangiovese vines.”

Madeline’s blog (1) features how plants can grow stronger, healthier and faster listening to Classical and Baroque Music.

She features a recent article by Christopher Barnes entitled “Does Playing Classical Music to Vines Make for Better Wine?”

She says: In an article by Jeremy Pound, “15 Unusual Uses for Mozart”, from BBC Music Magazine Pound says, “Cignozzi pipes Mozart’s opera over 56 speakers in his vineyards – the grapes ripen in 14 days as opposed to the normal 20 which, we learn, in turn increases the wine’s alcoholic content.”

Professor Stefano Mancuso, a plant neurobiologist at the University of Florence says, “It is not that the grapes are capable of understanding the music and appreciating Mozart. But they are capable of appreciating the sound vibrations and the frequencies.” He says, “The vines are affected by low frequencies between 100 and 400 Hz. The results are somewhat impressive with regard to the quality of the grapes. The most fundamental result is that the number of pathogenic attacks from insects have declined in a significant way.”

Hylton Applebaum, co-owner at DeMorgenzon Winery in South Africa plays, 24 hours a day, Baroque music to his vines. Christopher Barnes says, “Appelbaum is an authority on classical music and has studied its positive effects on natural life forms, including babies in utero and the production of vegetables and cow’s milk.”

The abstract of a research report at the Journal of Environmental Science entitled “Effect of Different Types of Music on Rosa Chinensis” (2) says:  Music influences the growth of plants and can either promote or restrict the growth of plants (depending on
the type of music being played). The present experiment is aimed to study the effect of music on 30 Rose (Rosa chinensis)
plants taken in separate pots.

The research compared the growth of roses subject respectively to Vedic Chants, Vedic Classical Music, Western Classical Music, Rock music and silence.  The plants grown while subjected to the chants and classical music grew larger and had more flowers than those grown in silence.  Roses with rock music grew the smallest and had the fewest flowers.

Hemingway’s Secret


Here’s a great Christmas gift idea.  You can give Hemingway’s secret of success.


Was Ernest Hemingway’s secret to success being able to write in English or Spanish?  

‪There may have been many reasons why Hemingway liked Cuba but he already had access to most of them in Key West.  Why go the extra 104.91 miles to Cuba?

Perhaps he knew that speaking a second language makes you smarter.  Perhaps he realized that he could think and write better in English when one learns Spanish.   In 1939 he moved to Cuba and wrote “For Whom the Bell Tolls” which  became a Book-of-the-Month Club choice.  The book sold half a million copies almost instantly, was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, and cemented Hemingway’s reputation as one of the great writers in the English language… at a time when he was speaking two languages.

You can be be smarter and incidentally… provide a Christmas gift and save $178.90 in the process.

This offer makes a great Christmas gift.  I’ll explain how in a moment.

You might ask… “What the heck does speaking Spanish have to do with being more successful.

Well… to start, being smarter means you gain greater intellect.  You can be smarter with Super Thinking.   Super Thinking tactics integrate brain waves so absorption, retention and recollection of  information improve… a lot.   Most important of all, Super Thinking helps you synthesize what you learn so you can connect dots and use the knowledge you gain to achieve your goals.

In short, Super Thinking makes you smarter.. a lot!

Super Thinking is not a gimmick nor a trick.At least three best selling books, Superlearning, the Mozart Effect and Superlearning 2000 have revealed insights about how we can learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  Merri was among those few who learned how and is licensed to teach the Lozanov system.  She has organized a practical course on how to learn faster and better.  With her modified system, you discover how to think more powerfully in just three days…and experience the wonders of superlearning.

When I figured this out, my first thought was… “Why not help readers learn Super Thinking AND Spanish?”  There and then was a two for one deal.

Enroll for our Online Super Spanish Course and you gain a the Super Thinking Workshop for Greater Intelligence workshop (a $49.95 value) FREE.

We will also deliver both the Spanish course and the workshop to someone of your choice by email on Christmas morning or Christmas Eve.

You save $178.90 total!

Still you ask… “Why Spanish for greater intellect and success?

Spanish is the second most spoken romantic language.  Chances are a huge Spanish speaking population lives near you.  Speaking Spanish can be helpful in innumerable ways just from this fact.

There is more.  Learning a second language makes you smarter and healthier.

Image from Telegraph article “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism”. (2)

The Telegraph article (linked below) entitled “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism says (bolds are mine):  Learning a foreign language is more than just a boost to your CV or handy for travelling. It will make you smarter, more decisive and even better at English, says Anne Merritt.

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.

You can read the entire article at the link below but to sum it up it shows seven ways that learning a second language improves your intellect and health:

* You build multitasking skills

* You stave off Alzheimer’s and dementia

* Your memory improves

* You become more perceptive

* You become smarter

* Your decision-making skills improve

* You improve your English

A better command of English… used by a smarter, more perceptive person who can remember details and multi task.

With this. I rest Hemingway’s case.

Be happier as you become smarter.

A study of 10,000 British people studied the pure relationship between intelligence and happiness stability.

IQ can predict the emotional ups and downs of life.   The research found that the lower the IQ,  the higher the ups and downs in life satisfaction.  The differences were not due to education, income, or jobs either, but simply IQ.

Become smarter, healthier, happier… in just weeks… hearing  a relaxation session that takes you into your secret rose garden.

Merri, David and I originally developed this session for our Super Thinking courses and have set it into an online workshop for you.

Listen… just 18 minutes day.  We guarantee your life will be better.

Inflate Your IQ.

When it comes to money… inflation is cheating.

That’s bad for you.

When it comes to intelligence… inflating is smart… fair… good for you and it’s good for the rest of the world.

Monetary inflation is a sneaky government and business trick.

What cost a dollar in 1965 can easily cost $15 now.

They promise you more.


They devalue the currency so you get more dollars that buy less.  They can rip off your salary,  your pension…raise insurance, almost everything.

And they make you work harder… longer… for less.

Whittle, whittle, whittle.  Push, push, push.  That’s what monetary inflation does to you.

Fight back… overcome the inflation trick.  Inflate your IQ as you relax.

Gain more than IQ.

Be smarter… more energetic…. healthier.

That’s the way to get ahead!

Create more income opportunity.  Improve your health.  Be naturally smarter… use Super Thinking.

You can improve your IQ in just weeks.

You might well ask… How is this possible?

Here’s how the scientists say it is possible.

A Wall Street Journal article entitled “Ways to Inflate Your IQ”(3)  show how you can be smarter and actually add matter to your brain.  The article says:

           Many people think of IQ as a genetic trait, like brown eyes or short legs: You’re born with it and you’re stuck with it.

Now, a growing body of research is showing that a person’s IQ can rise—and even fall—over the years.

Scores can change gradually or quickly, after as little as a few weeks of cognitive training, research shows.

British students were given IQ tests and brain scans at ages 12 to 16 and again about four years later.  9% of the students showed a significant change of 15 points or more in IQ scores.

The study published in Nature said that on a scale where 90 to 110 is considered average, one student’s IQ rose 21 points to 128 from 107, lifting the student from the 68th percentile to the 97th compared with others the same age. 

MRIs in this study showed changes in gray matter in areas corresponding to fluctuations in the kid’s skills.

There are practical steps people can take to see longer-term IQ changes.  New tasks stimulate the brain most.  Young adults given just one month of intense training in juggling, found an increase in the corresponding gray matter in the brain as early as seven days after the training began.

Fluctuations in IQ scores over time underscore the brain-boosting benefits of musical training and new experiences throughout a lifetime.

Music lessons are linked to higher IQ throughout life.  Six years’ lessons lifted children’s IQ scores an average 7.5 points.

 Improve the brain through music… without lessons.

Here’s the Super Thinking story…

The educational program Merri and I developed uses a form of brain wave integration that increases IQ.

Super Thinking uses frequency (in music and a number of other ways) to integrate brain waves so the process of absorbing, processing and recalling information is vastly accelerated.  The music creates the three C’s:  Calm, Clarity and Coherence.

This Super Thinking program is not a gimmick or trick… just advanced education.

Certain types of Baroque music are the base, and they make you smarter!


At least four best selling books, “Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain”,  “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000″ showed how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

This Baroque music tactic alone is so powerful that Small Business Innovation Research… an official site of the US government granted over $100,000 for the specific purpose they said was: to provide a method to remove barriers which hinder or prevent the employment of blind persons.  An innovative method, the Lozanov Learning System, is proposed to help train blind persons to become computer programmers and operators of automated equipment.

Merri was among just a few who learned this technique directly from Dr. Lozanov the time he visited the USA.

Our Super Thinking workshop enhanced this system with numerous other tactics.

We added slight alterations in nutrition that create a higher IQ.   Altered nutritional tips in Super Thinking can make anyone 25% smarter!

Baroque Music and nutrition are just part of seven, easy to use, learning techniques that make you smarter.

Gain any skill, from computers to athletics to conversational languages…in less time…two-to-five times faster.

Here’s a huge bonus.  Super Thinking also relieves stress.  Super Thinking is fun.

You can use a Super Thinking focus in everything:  health… earning… education… investing.

Super Thinking works on the learner first…the data second.  This system “grows the learner” rather than the information.

If you have 4.5 inches of information flowing through a 4 inch learning pipe, the solution is not to add another inch of information.  The answer is create a six inch IQ pipe!

Share our years of experience.

For nearly 50 years, Merri and I have conducted hundreds of courses and tours for tens of thousands, in dozens of countries (even behind the Iron Curtain).  Our Super Thinking Workshop has been one of the most profound.  Now the workshop is even better online because it condenses Super Thinking so you can increase your IQ, at home… right away.

The workshop shows how these mind expanding tactics can be applied to starting and running a business for extra income, to forex trading and investing.  Athletes of all types… golfing being one common sport benefit.  Our Super Thinking plan goes far beyond Lozanov and allows you to rapidly get smarter in every part of your life.

For example, real estate broker, Suzy Kurinsky took the workshop to help her learn Spanish.

She wrote: “You are the BEST!!! Your Seminar was fantastic! I am so excited. I had procrastinated fulfilling my continuing education for my Broker’s License and then just before my surgeries, I realized by expiration date isn’t Nov. 12th – it is Sept 12th. Prior to taking your course I had only completed 3 units of the required 45 units. I thought I would take your course and then complete my remaining 42 units over the next 2 weeks. However, I took one class exam on Saturday night, August 27th. I didn’t even take the cellophane off the required Course manuals until after I saw the two of you today less than 5 hours ago! I used your techniques and completed 39 units of continuing education today. I have now completed all 45 units. All of my test scores were in the 90.6-96% range.  My course exam information is listed below. I just wanted to let you know how valuable your course was to me. Thanks again!”

Super thinking can improve almost anything you do… faster, better, more fun and with less stress.

Another attendee to the Super Thinking Workshop sent this note.

 Thank you for the wonderful workshop on Super Learning + Spanish!  I really enjoyed the workshop and getting to know you.   I can see several ways to apply what I learned in the classes I teach.

Since I returned home, I have purchased some of the CDs of Baroque music and thought about which specific pieces will work best in different parts of my classes.  I am also reading Perfect Health by Deepak Chopra.  I found your discussion of this book to be very helpful in showing how to balance one’s life.  I have adjusted my daily schedule, and I can already notice a difference in my productivity.

Super Thinking can help improve your health. Super Thinking can make you rich and add richness to your life.

However the time, travel expense and workshop cost (delegates have paid up to $999) have prohibited many from getting this benefit.

That’s why we have created the workshop in electronic form.  Get Super Thinking online for less than fifty bucks.

Relax in the Secret Rose Garden.

The workshop is divided into two parts.  Part one is the application… the sessions that tell you exactly what to do, what music to use and even includes two recorded sessions based around a secret rose garden that you can use.  We have kept this portion short and simple so you can easily start immediately.

Part two is a longer portion on theory.

Part one is enough.

Super Thinking is like jogging… giving results if you simply do it!

You do not have to know why Super Thinking works to increase your IQ.   But Part Two explains why you are getting the good results from Part One, if you want to know.

You might ask…”Will it work for me”?

The Super Thinking Workshop will help increase your IQ.

Another Super Thinking workshop attendee wrote: Listening to the two of you during our time together has suddenly got me to thinking, and although some of the ideas still seem foreign to me,  I am at a point in my life now where I can say, “anything is possible”.   I am now willing to embrace and allow myself to experience the world of possibility and let it take me in directions I may have in the past resisted.  I really don’t know where all this is going to lead me but I am now willing to explore, develop and grow.   Thank you again for a wonderful four days!!

Super Thinking Health & Wealth

The rules for health and wealth are strikingly similar. Health and wealth are connected as well according to a New York Times article entitled “So Your 401(k) Is Healthy.  So Maybe You Are, Too.” (1)

baldwin piano

64 reasons why health, wealth and music are connected.

In music, the standard piano has 88 Keys which represents almost eight octaves. In investing , there is an entire philosophy of investing based around W.D. Gann’s ideas in the first half of the 20th century.  Gann was a brilliant trader in any market made over $50 million ($500 million in today’s terms) using a system based on fractals and 64 octaves.  He measured  4 Day, 8 Day, 16 Day, 32 Day and 64 Day Time Frames and harmonics of market moves.  But that’s another story for another time.

In nature, different octaves can stimulate different aspects of  health.

For example in 1998, 3 research scientists won the Nobel Prize in medicine when they discovered the natural nitric oxide cycle in our cells.  Nitric oxide is essential to a vital natural cycle at the cellular level.  The nitric oxide cycle, especially helps the heart. It also increases energy and stamina, relieves  stress, strengthens the immune and digestive system, plus improves clarity of mind.

Music therapists, Dr. John Beaulieu and Dr. George Stefano, neurologist, did research that shows that tuning forks at specific frequencies stimulate the production of nitric oxide in less than 30 seconds.

This is also another story we reviewed in a recent message.

These facts support this New York Times article that shows what retirement savings have to do with physical health and tells of a new study from the journal “Psychological Science”.

That study shows that people who are good at planning their financial future are more likely to take steps to improve their physical health — and then actually become healthier.

The article says: There is something very abstract and fundamental about caring for the future. Researchers looked at employees’ contributions to their 401(k) plans and compared them against various measures of their health, including blood test results; cholesterol, kidney and iron levels; exercise frequency; and whether they smoked. Employees who contributed regularly to their 401(k) plan were not only more likely to take steps to improve their health but also, in aggregate, had a 27 percent improvement in their blood scores. “Noncontributors continued to suffer health declines,” the paper said.

This is why this site and our courses and seminars look at how to integrate health and wealth, thinking and feeling, mind and heart, logic and intuition. We call this process of integration Super Thinking.

Our courses look at seven ways to enhance intelligence through Super Thinking.

#1: Nutrition

#2: Exercise

#3: Aromatherapy

#4: Meditation

#5: L-Theanine

#6: Tuning Forks and similar frequency generators

#7: Baroque Music

Dr. Madeline Frank, attended a recent Super Thinking + Spanish course.  We discovered that she has written an excellent book on how music enhances intelligence and learning.

Madeline holds a Bachelor and Master degree from the Juilliard School as a scholarship student of William Lincer, former principal violist of the N.Y. Philharmonic and the Cleveland Orchestra.

She has a Ph.D. from Walden University and has developed methods of improving education through the use of total quality management as applied to arts and music programs.

Her book “The Secret of Teaching Science & Math Through Music” cites scientific evidence showing that the study of musical instruments helps to develop strong neuronal connections to enhance brain function.

She cites studies from such scholars as Arnold Scheibel, Gerald Edelman, Oliver Sacks, Alfred Tomatis and others.

While attending the Juilliard School, she studied symphonic conducting with Maestro Vincent La Selva, Principal Conductor of New York Grand Opera Company, New York City Opera, the Opera Company of Boston and many international orchestras.

Madeline is a concert artist, teacher, researcher, orchestra conductor, lecturer and parent. She has given solo recitals throughout the United States, the Republic of China, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, South America, Canada, Bermuda, throughout Europe, and at the prestigious Purcell Room at the Royal Festival Hall in London.

For over 25 years, she has worked with individual students on string instruments, children and adults, privately and at universities.  She maintains a studio a studio presently in Virginia and in New York City while working for the Metropolitan Opera/Ballet.

Gain From Pandemics – Riots & Election Volatility

On top of the pandemic… and the riots, another election on its way… all the robo calls from politicians… the dirty tricks and the innumerable amounts of nonsense this vital process brings.

However America’s politics turn out, one thing is sure, there will be volatility in stock markets during the election process.

The first reason markets will bounce has nothing to do with politics or policies.   A market correction was due regardless of the party or the person in office and COVID-19 was a pretty good excuse for it to suddenly drop.  Expect plenty more volatility.  Whether the economy recovers slowly or quickly, history suggests that the US market will do a lot of moving up and down.

Second the new politics has created an uncertain era.  Everyone has been shaken over the past three years whether they are pleased with the government or not.

Nothing frightens markets like uncertainty. 

What more could we ask for… an uncertain COVID-19 future and riots in 30 major cities.

Well interest rates could be a dark horse.  I the massive government handouts create inflation, interest rates will rise and rising interest rates will push stock market prices down.

Despite these pitfalls, there is a way to profit using the strong US dollar and undervalued non dollar stock markets to pick up good value shares.

During nearly five decades of global investing I have noticed found that good value strategies are the best way to profit long term, through good politics and bad.  The steps to take are simple.

The first tactic is to seek safety before profit.

We can look at Warren Buffett’s investing strategy as an example.  Buffett success is talked about a lot, but rarely does anyone explain how he make so much money.  That was the fact until some researchers really stripped his operation bare.  They looked at everything and learned the deepest of Buffett’s wealth management secrets.  Fortunately they published all in a research paper at Yale University’s website. that reveals important truths about extending wealth.

This research shows that the stocks Buffett 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).

The second tactic is to maintain staying power.  At times Buffet’s portfolio has fallen, but he has been willing and able to wait long periods for the value to reveal itself and prices to recover.

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 outperformance 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.

The Buffett strategy integrates time and value for safety and profit.

A third tactic is using limited leveraging, tactic in the strategy boosts profit.  Buffett leverages his portfolio at a ratio of approximately 1.6 to 1.   The Yale published research paper shows the leveraging methods used by Warren Buffett to amass his $50 billion fortune.  The researchers found that the returns from Buffett’s investment company, Berkshire Hathaway, far outweighed those achieved by any rival that has operated for 30 years or more.  The research shows that neither luck nor magic are involved.  Instead, the paper shows that Buffet’s success hinges on using leverage at the rate of 1.6.

To sum up the strategy, Buffet uses limited leverage to invest in large purchases of “cheap, safe, quality stocks”.  He limits leverage so he can hold on for very long periods of time, surviving rough periods where others might have been forced into a fire sale or a career shift.

Stated in another way buffet uses logic (buy good value) to have the conviction, wherewithal, and skill to invest with leverage over many decades.

What do we do when we are not Warren Buffett?

May I introduce the Purposeful Investing Course (Pi) for those who want to invest like Warren Buffet, but know they are not.  This course is based on my 50 plus years of investing experience combined with wisdom gained from some of the world’s best investment managers and economic mathematical scientists.

Enjoy Extending Wealth

Pi’s mission is to make it easy for anyone to create a three point strategy, like Buffett’s even though they do not have a lot of time for or knowledge about investing.

Pi reveals investing secrets and the sciences that make investing easy, safer, less time consuming and increases the chances of profit.

One secret is to invest with a purpose beyond the cash.  One tactic as mentioned is staying power.  This means not being caught short and having to sell during a period of loss.  This also means having enough faith in a strategy that we stick to the plan.  When we invest with purpose, doing what we love, we enjoy the process more and are more likely to hold on during down times, when most poor investors panic and sell.

Slow, Worry Free, Good Value Investing

Stress, worry and fear are three of an investor’s worst enemies.  They create the Behavior Gap, a trait exhibited by most investors, that causes them to underperform any market sector they choose.  The behavior gap is created by natural human responses to fear.   Pi helps create profitable strategies that avoid losses from this gap.

Spanning the Behavior Gap

Behavior gaps are among the biggest reasons why so many investors fail.  Human evolution makes fear the second most powerful motivator.  (Greed is the third.)  Fear creates investment losses due to behavior gaps.  Fear motivates us more strongly than desire.  By nature investors are risk adverse.

Winning investors though embrace risk because they have a plan based on good value.

Purpose is the most powerful motivator,  stronger than fear and greed, so a strategy with purpose is the most powerful of all.

Combine your needs and capabilities with good value secrets and the math to back up your value selections through the Pifolio – The Pi Model Portfolio

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 (often created by someone with vested interests) and is based entirely on good math.

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

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 follow this research of a brilliant mathematician and have tracked this analysis for over 20 years.    This is a complete and continual study of international major and emerging stock markets.

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.

A country ETF provides diversification and cost efficiency by spreading one simple, even small investment into a basket of equities in a good value stock market.  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 matches this mathematical certainty with my fifty years of experience. This opens insights to numerous long term cycles that most investors miss because they have not been investing long enough to see them.

For example 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!  There are currently ten good value (non US) developed markets,  plus 10 good value emerging markets.

Pi shows how to easily create a diversified, worry free portfolio in some of these good value markets using Country Index ETFs.

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.  There is so much more to write and 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 you’ll receive the report “Three Currency Patterns For 50% Profits or More” FREE when you subscribe to Pi.


Pi also explains when leverage provides extra potential without undo risk.  For example in 1986 I issued a report called “The Silver Dip” that showed how to borrow 12,000 British pounds (at almost 1.6 to 1 dollars per pound the loan created US$18,600) and use the loan to buy 3835 ounces of silver at around US$4.85 an ounce.

Silver had crashed, I mean really crashed from $48 per ounce.  As prices decreased from early 1983 into 1986, total supply had fallen to 449.7 million ounces in 1986.  Mine production was restricted by the low prices at this time, with silver reaching a low for this period of $4.85 in May 1986.  Secondary recovery also was constricted by these low prices.

Then silver’s price skyrocketed to over $11 an ounce within a year.  The $18,600 loan was now worth $42,185.

The loan was in pounds and in May 1986 the dollar pound rate was 1.55 dollars per pound.  So the 12,000 pound loan purchased $18,600 of silver.  The pound then crashed to 1.40 dollars per silver.  The loan could be paid off for $13,285 immediately creating an extra $5,314 profit.  The profit grew to $47,499 in just a year.

Conditions for the silver dip have returned.  The availability of low cost loans and silver are at an all time low.  The price of silver has crashed from nearly $50 an ounce to below $14 as did shares of the iShares Silver ETF (SLV).

Now the SLV price is taking off!

Imagine investing in a spike like this… with leverage!

At the same time the silver gold ratio has sot well past 80, a strong sign to invest in precious metals.

I have updated a special report “Silver Dip 2019” about a leveraged silver speculation 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 gained through 30 years of speculating and investing in precious metals.  While working on the report, when the gold silver ratio slipped to 80 and the price of silver dropped below $14 an ounce, I knew I needed to share this immediately.

I released a new report “Silver Dip 2015” so readers were able to take advantage of these conditions and leverage 1.6 times as a speculation.  That report generated profits as high as 212% and a revised 2019 issue has been produced.
