Time for Health and Wealth


Have you overcome the effects of the short out of Daylight Savings Time?  An Ecuador shaman helped Merri and me shape our daily routine for better energy, vitality and health.

The shaman helped us see the value of following nature’s rhythms.  Sunrise at our house.  The body’s clocks are activated by the glowing orange.

The body’s clocks are sedated by the indigo at sunset.

Making the change from daylight savings time is important because circadian rhythms are amazingly important to our energy and good natural health.  When Merri and I lived and worked with an Ecuador shaman for years, we found that routine was of utmost importance.  Everyone rose at the same time each day. We ate at the same time each day. We exercised at the same time each day and we studied and meditated at the same time each day.  We slept at the same time.

The entire rhythm was based on the rising and setting of the sun.  Setting a good routine on the equator is easier because the sun rises at 6am and sets at 6pm every day all year long.  Ecuador does not have Daylight Savings Time.

In North and South America the target moves.  Merri and I adjust.  During Daylight savings we rise at 6am and decline at 10pm.  During normal hours we rise and sleep an hour earlier by mankind’s clock, at 5am and go to bed an hour earlier at 9pm.

The shamans recognize that every living thing on earth keeps time with the 24-hour light/dark cycle with the master organizer being the sun.

The brain has a master clock, but there are a series of other biological clocks that also impact our energy, vitality and health.

The brain releases proteins that turn various clocks on and off according to the time of night or day.

There is the time when the liver supports detoxification at night and glucose for energy during the day.  The heart is timed so before dawn, the heart gets prepared to be more active.

The kidney regulates electrolytes in the body in daytime and relaxes it at night. The pancreas helps blood get into the cells with the proper amount of insulin/fatty tissue regulates the hormones in the body.

Good health comes when the timing of all this activity works in concert.  If our circadian rhythms are disturbed, the incorrectly times of activity of the various body clocks can lead to a host of chronic health problems.

For example, if fatty tissue releases fats at the wrong time they can congest the body and not be available when hormones and energy are required.

Mankind can fiddle with nature all it likes, but most short term savings are wiped out by long term costs.  Clocks should keep us in tune with nature.  We move time around at our risk because nature always wins.  It is because nature is not limited in time.

Respect and honor the source of all our biological energy, the sun, and you’ll have more energy, vitality and have taken a step to better health.

How to Kick Start Higher Vitality

Vitality and a good start to the day are the foundations of health and wealth.  Good heart health creates this vitality by sending a strong flow of blood to and through the body and brain.  I believe so much in this fact that I take a supplement called Vitality Force first thing in the morning.  Modern living often inhibits a strong flow of blood and the World Health Organization says that 17 million people die every year from heart disease. Fortunately there is a simple, inexpensive way to kick start a positive heart spiral.

llama walk

After taking Vitality Force, I meditate, have an infrared sauna and do some gentle exercises such as this LLama Walk.  This process gets my mind active and my blood flowing.

Take light exercise (perhaps an easy walk) after eating.  Research has found that timing meals and exercise is important for glycogen loading, muscle maintenance and nutrient uptake and use.  The research suggests that even a little light exercise creates healthy hormonal shifts that improves the way nutrients are metabolized.  The exercise appears to help balance triglyceride and glucose levels which reduce the cravings for between meal snacks and the desire to eat rich, sugary foods.

Vitality Force is my kick start to make sure I have the vitality to take that walk.  This supplement has a powerful precursor to a single simple molecule that can increase vitality and feel like getting a good start.  Vitality Force provides L-arginine. This is theprecursor to nitric oxide.  The medical establishment has known about the benefits of nitric oxide as nitroglycerine which create a flood of nitric oxide.  Nitroglycerine has been used in medicine for over a century.

In 1998, three research scientists won the Nobel Prize in medicine when they discovered that nitric oxide is essential to a vital natural cycle at the cellular level.  The nitric oxide cycle, especially helps the heart.  Nitric oxide is the simple molecule that can help improve the flow of blood to the body and brain as it increases energy and stamina, relieve  stress, strengthens the immune and digestive system, plus improves clarity of mind.  Over the past decade, 92 studies examined the role of nitric oxide in modulating the severity of certain heart problems and 73% concluded that nitric oxide has a protective effect.

An Abstract at US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health of a scientific research entitled  “The effect of nitric-oxide-related supplements on human performance” (1)  says:  “Nitric Oxide has led a revolution in physiology and pharmacology research during the last two decades.  This labile molecule plays an important role in many functions in the body regulating vasodilatation, blood flow, mitochondrial respiration and platelet function. Studies involving untrained or moderately trained healthy subjects showed that nitric Oxide donors could improve tolerance to aerobic and anaerobic exercise.

Nitric oxide makes you feel better when you exercise more.  It helps you want to get enough exercise.

The Pritikin Longevity Center website explains the importance of Nitric Oxide in simpler terms in an article, “Sex, Nitric Oxide, and Your Heart” (2) and says: Nitric oxide is a very simple but important molecule.  It is not the same as nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas.” The nitric oxide story is no laughing matter; it will determine how long you live.  And it’s an integral part of sex and heart health.  

The article tells how nitric oxide improves the health of the inner wall of a blood vessel, keep vessels pliable and elastic, dilates blood vessels keeping blood flowing smoothly, relax blood vessels, keep platelets and white blood cells calm and prevent them from sticking to the vessel wall, prevent oxidation, slow plaque growth, suppress atherosclerosis and melt away plaque that already exists.

One way to get more nitric oxide into our system is with a small scoop of powdered Vitality Force.

Vitality Force provides arginine, a semi-essential amino acid that has shown promise in the prevention of blockage of the arteries.  L-arginine is a precursor of nitric oxide.  After arginine is consumed in foods and in supplements, it makes its way into the bloodstream and circulates throughout the body.  As it enters the cells that line the smooth muscle walls of blood vessels, an enzymatic reaction converts arginine to nitric oxide.  Rising arginine levels increases production of nitric oxide, which improves your cardiovascular health and makes you feel better.

There are over 85,000 medically published clinical studies attest to the fact that arginine will help lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol and triglycerides, improve diabetes, improve sexual function, reduce blood clots and strokes, improve congestive heart failure, improve wound healing, improve liver and kidney function, improve memory and cognitive functions, increase human growth hormone (HGH), improve muscle growth and performance, and much more.

Vitality Force, is much more than just a solution for cardiovascular health.  The formula includes the highest quality arginine, vitamins, minerals, and other immune boosting ingredients.  It works by dilating the blood vessels to allow more oxygen and nutrients to flow freely throughout the body.   This helps improve the  bioavailability of all nutrients and helps enhance your other supplements that you may already be taking.

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

Vitality Force supports:

* Cardiovascular health

* Healthy immune function

* Anti-aging properties

* Improved energy levels

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

* Increased efficiency of oxygen utilization for energy production

* Enhanced numbers of mitochondria to actually produce energy

Vitality Force includes:

L-Citrulline

L-Citrulline is an amino acid which promotes energy, stimulates the immune system, and detoxifies ammonia, which damages living cells.

Vitamin D3

Vitamin D, calciferol, is a fat-soluble vitamin. D3 is normally produced in the skin by the action of sunlight.  The major biologic function of vitamin D is to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium, helping to form and maintain strong bones.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a powerful fat-soluble antioxidant that protects cell membrane from environmental pollution and from dietary and metabolic free radicals.  This prevents the oxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids and cholesterol.  By decreasing LDL cholesterol and plaque deposits on the walls of the arteries, it is one of the most important nutrients in reducing probability of heart attack, stroke and atherosclerosis.  Vitamin E also helps alleviate respiratory problems and boost your immune system’s ability to fight off infectious disease.

Vitamin C (50% ascorbic acid & 50% Ester C)

Vitamin C works both inside and outside cells as your body’s first line of antioxidant protection.  Not only does it neutralize harmful free radicals, it also prevents the formation of free radicals that initiate artery blockage by damaging artery walls.

B1 (thiamine)

This vitamin enhances circulation and assists in blood formation, carbohydrate metabolism, and the production of hydrochloric acid, which is important for proper digestion.  Thiamine also optimizes cognitive activity and brain function.  It has a positive effect on energy, growth, normal appetite, learning capacity and is needed for muscle tone on the intestines, stomach, and heart.  Thiamine also acts as an antioxidant, protecting the body from the degenerative effects of aging, alcohol consumption, and smoking.

B2 (riboflavin)

This vitamin is necessary for blood cell formation, antibody production, cell respiration and growth.  It alleviates eye fatigue and is important in the prevention and treatment of cataracts.  It aids in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.  Vitamin B2 is essential for energy production and in regenerating glutathione, one of the main cellular protectors against free-radical damage.

B3 (niacin amide)

This vitamin is needed for proper circulation and healthy skin.  It also aids in the functioning of the nervous system.  This vitamin is an antioxidant and is involved in the regulation of blood sugar and detoxification.  It has been shown to exert a favorable effect on cholesterol levels.

B5 (pantothenic acid)

This vitamin is involved in energy production and is considered the “anti- stress” vitamin because of its importance for optimal adrenal function.  It is required by all cells of the body and is concentrated in the organs.  It is also involved in the production of neurotransmitters.

B6 (pyridoxine)  

This vitamin is involved in more bodily functions than almost any other single nutrient.  It affects both physical and mental health.  Vitamin B6 is extremely important for the formation of proteins and structural compounds, neurotransmitters, red blood cells and prostaglandins.  It is also critical in maintaining hormonal balance and proper immune function.  Vitamin B6 plays a role in cancer immunity and aids in the prevention of arteriosclerosis.  It inhibits the formation of a toxic chemical called homocysteine, which attacks the heart muscle and allows the deposition of cholesterol around the heart muscle.  Vitamin B6 is also helpful in the in the treatment of allergies, arthritis, and asthma.

B12 (methylcobalamin)

This vitamin plays a critical role in proper energy metabolism and immune and nerve function.  It is essential to the manufacture and normal functioning of blood cells and for the production of nucleic acids, which make up DNA.  B12 also helps maintain proper mental functioning and mood.

Folic Acid

This vitamin is considered a brain food and is needed for energy production and the formation of red blood cells.  It is the most commonly deficient vitamin in the world.  Studies have demonstrated that it is difficult to get an adequate amount of folic acid from food alone because it only 50% absorbed.  As a supplement, however, folic acid is 100% absorbed.  Taking supplemental folic acid, along with B6 and B12, will substantially reduce your homocysteine levels.  When homocysteine builds up inside cells and spills into the bloodstream, it damages arteries and reduces the integrity of vessel walls, laying the groundwork for the accumulation of deposits and blockage of the arteries.  Only folic acid, taken as a supplement, has been shown to substantially reduce the risk.  Folic acid may also help depression and anxiety.

CoQ10

Coenzyme Q10 is involved in energy production at the cellular level, is vital for sustaining life and is found in greatest abundance in the heart. The heart requires more CoQ10 to provide energy needed to pump blood throughout the body. It is also most sensitive to CoQ10 deficiency. Numerous clinical trials have shown that patients with congestive heart failure have low CoQ10 blood levels. Generally, the worse the heart condition, the lower the CoQ10 level. In addition, studies have shown that when administered orally, CoQ10 is an effective therapeutic agent in the prevention and treatment of heart disease.

Clinical studies have also shown that CoQ10 can treat periodontal disease. CoQ10 is also being investigated in treating cancer, diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s, Huntington’s and Alzheimer’s and even immune system disorders including AIDS.

Omega 3

Omega EFA’s (essential fatty acids) are vital to good health, but they must be acquired through our diets or supplementation because the body is unable to manufacture EFA’s itself.  Leading doctors estimate that upwards of 80% of North Americans are deficient of these Omegas and there is a direct correlation with this deficiency in Omegas and the modem proliferation of fat-related diseases such as heart disease, cancer and adult onset diabetes.  Furthermore, these doctors believe that by simply supplementing the Omegas into one diet can dramatically reduce the onset of these deadly diseases.

Resveratrol

Resveratrol is known for anti aging and may confer special protection on the heart.  Research has found that low doses of resveratrol mimic the effects of what is known as caloric restriction – diets with 20-30 percent fewer calories than a typical diet – that in numerous studies has been shown to extend lifespan and blunt the effects of aging.

Potassium

This mineral is important for a healthy nervous system and regular heart rhythm.  It helps prevent stroke, aids in proper muscle contraction, and works with sodium to control the body’s water balance.

Potassium is important for chemical reactions within the cells and aids in maintain stable blood pressure and in transmitting electrical chemical impulses.  It also regulates the transfer of nutrients through cell membranes.

Chromium Polynicotinate

Because it is involved in metabolism of glucose, chromium (sometimes called glucose tolerance factor or GTF) is needed for energy.  This essential mineral maintains stable blood sugar levels through proper insulin utilization, and can be helpful for people with diabetes and those with hypoglycemia.

A deficiency of chromium can lead to anxiety, fatigue, glucose intolerance (particularly in people with diabetes), inadequate metabolism of amino acids and an increase in arteriosclerosis.

Chromium has been used successfully to control blood cholesterol and glucose levels.  It also promotes the loss of fat and an increase in lean muscle tissue.  Studies also show chromium may increase longevity and help fight osteoporosis.

Magnesium

Magnesium is essential for healthy heart function. It is crucial to produce the high-energy bonds that drive the energy machinery of your cells.  More specifically magnesium reduces blood pressure,

Selenium

Studies now show that people living in areas with low levels of selenium in their soil have increased incidences of cancer and heart disease.

Selenium has important antioxidant properties and studies have shown a link between low levels of Selenium and a high rate of heart disease and that individuals suffering from heart disease responded well to Selenium supplementation.

OPCs
Oligomer proanthocyanidins (OPCs) are naturally occurring substances found throughout plant life; however, the two main sources are pine bark extract (Pycnogenol) and grape seed extract.  They are unique flavonols that have powerful antioxidant capabilities and excellent bioavailability.  Clinical tests suggest that OPCs may be 50 times more potent than vitamin E and 20 times more potent than vitamin C in terms of bio-available antioxidant activity.  In addition to their antioxidant activity, they strengthen and repair connective tissue, including that of the cardiovascular system, as they moderate allergic and inflammatory responses by reducing histamine production.

Fulvic Minerals

A natural extract from ancient plant deposit that was created 75 million years ago in the upper cretaceous period, consist of an immense arsenal and array of naturally occurring phytochemicals, biochemicals, supercharged antioxidants, free-radical scavengers, super oxide dismutases, nutrients, enzymes, hormones, amino acids, antibiotics, antivirals, and antifungals.  Fulvic Acids greatly enhance the bioavailability of important trace minerals.

AstraGin™

AstraGin™ is the first and only natural food ingredient that has shown in cell, animal and human clinical studies to significantly improve the absorption of many life supporting and health promoting nutrients; such as, amino acids, glucose, and vitamins, into cells, by allowing greater amount of these nutrients to pass from the blood stream into cells.  AstraGin™ provides for truly improved bioavailability and hence improvement in overall health, fitness, energy, endurance, sense of well being, blood sugar balance, and lean body mass.

Fructooligo Saccharide

Fructooligosaccharide is a unique prebiotic fiber blend with various sweet characteristics that are used for growth and multiplication by beneficial bacteria (bifidus) in the digestive tract.  A healthy population of these bifidus in the digestive system enhances the digestion and absorption of nutrients, detoxification and elimination processes, and helps boost the immune system.

Stevia

Stevia Rebaudiana is an herb in the Chrysanthemum family which grows wild as a small shrub in parts of Paraguay and Brazil.  The refined extracts of Stevia called steviosides (a white powder, 85-95% Steviosides) claim to be 200-300 times sweeter than table sugar.   In one study on stevia, participants who consumed stevia before their meals, felt satisfied with fewer calories and did not eat more food throughout the day.  In that same study, the stevia group showed lower after-meal glucose and insulin levels.

All of the above ingredients are in Vitality Force so it packs a lot of positive health spiral into one scoop!

I take mine first thing each morning and feel a big difference in my vitality.

The Ultimate Key to Vitality

Vitality is gained by being vital.

The use it or lose it law is always a part of nature’s play.  Nature is efficient.  Nature does not expend energy maintaining things not used.

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

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

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

Ecuador Living – A Gift from the Equator


Ecuador Living is a gift from the Andes and Equator.

Screen shot 2014-08-19 at 10.27.41 AM

Ecuador Living is living in  a way,  not living in a place.  You can live the Ecuador lifestyle in Ecuador or anywhere.

Ecuador Living is a lifestyle that integrates the brain and the heart, the thinking and the feeling, the logic and the intuition.

Ecuador Living personalizes your lifestyle so you enjoy adapting to change.

Take Ecuador and the change Merri and I have seen there, since first visiting in the mid 1990s.  Abdalá Bucaram was campaigning for the office of President.  He won but in less than six months was removed after being ruled mentally unfit.

ecuador-president

A photo I took of President Correa. He was accessible in the beginning. Will he be now?

From that time there were nine Ecuador presidents in the next ten years.  In 2007 Rafael Correa became president.  Before his four year term expired he used constitutional reform as an excuse to be reelected for four more years and then be elected for a third term.

Now Correa is throwing this idea of term limits out the window.  A Wall Street Journal article, “Ecuador President Rafael Correa Seeks Law Allowing Perpetual Re-Election: (1) by Mercedes Alvaro and Dan Molinski explains that Correa has a new law to Ecuador’s Constitutional Court, (the judges are allied with Correa) that would eliminate term limits for all political offices.   The article says that Congress, is expected to pass this law.

Correa is quoted” “The easiest thing would be for me to retire in 2017 as one of the best presidents in our history, as the people refer to me.  My sincere position was always against re-election, but after deep reflection, and well aware that sometimes our choices are between the lesser of two evils, I’ve decided to support this initiative.”

Correa has done a lot of good for Ecuador where the political system had been manipulated for centuries by the minority of extreme rich.  Correa has directed the nation’s substantial oil revenues to improve transportation and into social programs that help the poor.  Poverty has fallen to 26% from 38%.   Health care has become more accessible.

On the other hand, the indigenous community has protested his changes that have opened tribal lands to oil and mineral exploration and seizure of national water rights.

He has also attacked freedom of the press and civil groups.  The communications regulation passed last year made it a crime for the press to report news in ways that regulators do not deem fair and balanced.

The government also cracked down on civil groups that oppose government policy.  One large indigenous environmental organization, Panchamama, was closed after organizing peaceful protests.

Great leaders who lead the way to great change are almost always controversial.   Chile’s Pinochet led the “Miracle of Chile”.  Chile was, for most of the 1990s, the best-performing economy in Latin America.  On the other hand his government was harsh.  Claims are that thousands of political opponents were killed, up to 80,000 were interned and as many as 30,000 were tortured during Pinochet’s reign.

Over 30 years in office, Lee Kwan Yew, helps Singapore grow from a developing colonial outpost to one of the most developed nations in Asia, despite its small population, limited land space and lack of natural resources.

He was also criticized as being authoritarian and intolerant of dissent.  He successfully sued political opponents and newspapers who opposed his decisions and plans.

Many world leaders have praised Lee.  One leader said if Lee had lived in another time and place, he would have attained the world stature of a Churchill, a Disraeli, or a Gladstone. Others called him “a remarkable leader and statesman” and “one of the brightest and most effective world leaders”.

One description I find most enlightening was Henry Kissinger’s prize. He said  Lee was “One of the asymmetries of history”.

Will Correa go the way of Lee Kwan Yew, Augusto Pinochet or worse like Hugo Chavez who brought his county’s economy to ruin and social disorder?  Venezuela is one of the most violent countries in the world.

Correa has two good things going for him. He (like Lee Kwan Yew) has a background of academia (Lee studied Law at Cambridge) instead of military, as did Pinochet and Chavez.  He and Lee also spent considerable time living in other countries which may enhance a more intelligent global view.

This gives a better chance that Correa’s intolerance of opposition will at least be carried out in the courts and not with death and the prisons.

This website has remained positive about Correa for most of his time in office.  However I may have read Orwell’s “Animal Farm” at too early a stage.  Perhaps the adage, “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely” is too ingrained in my mind.  I feel disturbed by Correa’s increased power and longevity in office.

Will Correa be another asymmetries of history?

This is a question that only history will answer and history suggests that the answer  will be controversial depending on every person’s view.

What we can know is that Correa will bring great change to Ecuador, good for some, bad for others.

This is a benefit of an Ecuador Living lifestyle that anticipates, accepts and makes the best of change. 

Ecuador Living began over five centuries ago with an Andean prophesy before the Spanish arrived.

This prophesy was taught to Merri and me by a yatchak with whom we lived and worked with for many years.

He told us, “The condor of the south would fly in the skies with the eagle of the north again”.

This means the indigenous people of the equator live too much in their hearts.  The people of the industrialized north live too much in their brains.

When we integrate our hearts with our brain, intuition with logic, feeling with thought, we restore equilibrium.

The yatchak taught us that as Westerners move to the Equator, this social awakening will unfold in three circles. The outer circle is outside the Andes (this is where we find our place for now).  The middle circle is on the equator.  The inner circle is Ecuador’s special remote, isolated valleys.

This expansion of global socio-economic integration is a reflection of the inner growth of individuals.  This Ecuador Living process begins on the outside with physical improvements in nutrition, exercise and purification.

The sets the scene for a holistic pinnacle career, the individual mission of service that defines each of us for what we are meant to be. This is a helpful, fulfilling, fun, expansive, healthful and profitable activity that brings peace of mind as it continually forsees and adapts to change.  Pinnacle careers create and maintain wealth through, multi dimensional, global micro businesses and investing for a purpose beyond the bottom line.

This leads to the inner circle of our individual consciousness as it integrates with the whole.  Super Thinking – Escape the Tyranny of Reason.

Seven P Secrets of Self Publishing

When you write, you can work anywhere. 

gary-scott-image

Here I am working poolside in the winter, at our Florida farm.

gary scott

Here I am with our hound Ma, working during the summer at our North Carolina farm.

Learn how to earn everywhere, while living anywhere you choose.  I have been able to earn by writing in Hong Kong, England, the Isle of Man, Dominican Republic and Ecuador to name a few of the place I have lived.  Everywhere I have been… too numerous to share here, I have been able to work.

All I need is my laptop.

That’s all you need too… a laptop to be free!

Before computers, a pencil and pad did the job.

Freedom is just one benefit you can gain from writing.

Another benefit is income.   Writing has brought me both our farms, free and clear… plus a lot more.

Another good example of earning potential is my friend Hugh Howey.   He was working for $10 an hour in a book store when he self published his novel Wool, typing in a storage room during his lunch breaks.

Soon he was earning over $100,000 a month on Amazon.com.  This helped secure a six-figure book deal from Simon & Schuster, and an option for film by Ridley Scott, director of Blade Runner and Alien.

That’s what he’s doing now.

Hugh Howey

Sometimes Hugh and I get together at my  farm and play chess (he beats me badly).

Writers like High are great inspirations.

A couple of years ago Hugh  left Florida, and moved to South Africa.  He had a sailing catamaran built for him and now can sail the world while he continues to write.

Hugh explained it like this: And that’s the miracle of working as a writer: I can do it from anywhere and everywhere. The past few years, I’ve done a lot of writing from airplanes and airports while on business trips abroad.  SAND was entirely written overseas while traveling through seven different countries; I think it’s a better story because of those inspirations.  In upcoming years, I may be writing near your home port.

Hugh’s a super star writer and his success could not happen to a more deserving and talented person.  He pours enormous energy into being worthy of his readership.  But you do not have to be a million dollar a year earner or a traveler to benefit from writing.

The good news is… you do not need a huge success to have a rich and fulfilled lifestyle.  Self Publishing can bring you a life that most people only dream of, as a journeyman writer, instead of a super star.

May I hastily add that the path to stardom begins as a journeyman… so the journeyman’s path brings success without stardom… but can also lead to stardom.

What most success stories like Hugh’s rarely explain is the many hours of writing that was devoted before their self published book sales soared.   Hugh, like most writers were journeymen first.  Stardom came later.

Here are sevens secrets that can help you become a journeyman writer. 

The secrets are a writer’s armory of tools that allows almost anyone to create successful publications for income, freedom and fulfillment.

Take Merri’s and my publishing business as an example.  

Merri and I are not writing stars.  We are journeymen who have for more than 40 years, year in and year out, earned solid income writing and self publishing dozens of publications about multiple subjects.

Some years that income has been more than solid… over a million dollars.  Yet in terms of stardom, we are hardly known.

In a moment you’ll see why that’s fine for us and probably will be for you too.

First some history.

Merri became involved in self publishing over 40 years ago… first helping a veterinarian publish a book on a very specific market… animal acupuncture. Then she showed a needle point artist how to sell more books to an even more specific audience… “needle point enthusiasts”  about her needle point work to an audience larger than the population of the city she lived in.  This led Merri to eventually become Executive Editor of an award winning magazine in Florida.

My story allowed Merri and me to work and live from Hong Kong to London to Europe to Eastern Europe, then the Caribbean and then Ecuador… making millions in the process of following our adventures… having fun… while helping a large readership adapt to a rapidly changing world.

That’s what self publishing can bring, profit, adventure and fulfillment, a great feeling of worth and wonder.

Self Publishing has created exactly the lifestyle we desire allowing us to span the world and work with meaning and purpose.

Self Publishing has become a new business art form. 

The seven secrets can help you start your own self publishing business now.

Everything in publishing is new and exciting and changing.  Publishing is being recreated by the wonderful power of destructive technology.

Everything is new… except the seven secrets. 

Change in the publishing industry is disturbing many.   We love this evolution due to these seven secrets we call the 7Ps.  The 7 Ps are so fundamental to writing and publishing that new technology enhances rather than reduces their power.

The First P is Passion.

Whatever your passion, you can immerse yourself in it AND create income with self publishing.  This can be your direct ticket to the kind of fulfillment you’ve always wanted.

Whether you want to travel the world or live as a recluse, work 12 hours a day or not work much at all,  you can set your schedule to succeed, if you’re willing to learn these seven secrets.

You can start part-time with any dream, passion, and budget.  Once you’ve created a product, you’ll enjoy the “multiple effect” of producing profits over and over again.

So the question is… What do you love to do?

What’s Your Passion:  An example is that thirty years ago, a client of Merri’s had a passion to help people who were in pain?  He published a series of pamphlets explaining various chiropractic disorders in very simple terms.  For example: “What Is Whiplash?”

The pamphlets contained solid information, but were simple 5″ x 7″ brochures with drawings and explanations. He sold them with a rack to chiropractors, who put them in their offices for patients to read.  These little self-published items sold year in and year out for decades.

There are thousands of ideas of this sort that can lead to big business.  It’s just a matter of defining and then acting on your passion.

Although I can work when I please and go where I wish, for me the most important reason for being a publisher is the satisfaction it brings. 

I love the projects I take on, so work doesn’t feel like, well… work.

What do you love?  If you love golf, then you can write and sell publications about golf.  Love travel, fishing, dogs, dolls, or art?  Write and sell publications in these fields.

Are you concerned about crime, war, poverty or environmental issues?  You can publish information products that help reduce these concerns.

Would you like to help the world be a more spiritual place?  Publish a newsletter, write a book (or hire someone to write it for you), record a tape… publish something that enlightens people.

Whatever your passion, you can immerse yourself in it and earn income by publishing for ereaders, print on demand, CDs, lists, bound books, or any format you choose.

Be immersed in your passion and get paid well for it. 

This is why stardom is not the main goal for most writers and self publishers.  Extra income, more freedom and fulfillment are usually more than enough enough.

The seven Ps are:

#1: Passion

#2: Problem

#3: Person

#4: Profitably Priced Product

#5: Prospecting Pathway

#6: Promise

#7: Presentation

The first time I exposed others to the secrets in Self Publishing was in a weekend “Writer’s Camp” seminar.  We offered the camp for $1,500. 80 delegates enrolled.  People from all walks of life attended—chiropractors, businessmen, investors, doctors, realtors, inventors, airline pilots, engineers, and housewives.

Merri and I were so overwhelmed by the response, we decided to make it available to a larger audience.  We created a written course based on our current self publishing activity called “Self Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher.”  Then we recorded the weekend “Writer’s Camp” seminar.

Aging Better


Society is aging better.  

shaman

Ecuador shaman.  Integrate the shaman wisdom to age better.

Our posts repeat the theme… “Technology makes experience worth more than the cost of age”.    Modern communication, transportation and the global economy have altered the notions of work, lifespan and how or if we retire. Meaningless now is the number 65.

NGM Photo

This National Geographic photo by Fritz Hoffman is one of a series of active healthy people who at 80 and beyond are still going strong. Irving Kahn is still working at 106 years of age.  See all the stories and photos at  On Beyond 100.

This is one reason we share ideas on Ecuador shamanic health secrets at our International Investing and Business course.  Good health promotes a clear mind.   Clear minds are essential for good investing and business thought.

When Merri and I lived with the shamans of Ecuador, we learned many simple tricks that encourage better health at all ages but especially has helped us to age better.  We’ll share one simple important tip below.

Anyone can be a good investor and have a profitable business.  What determines the difference between those who succeed and those who do not is the energy and thought to have an idea and stick with it.  The great inventor Thomas Edison summed this up when he said: “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” 

Poor health can ruin a business.  High health care costs can ruin anyone’s budget.

In other words good health is part of everlasting wealth.  Good health and mobility are accessible to us at later and later years.

Expectations of good health and wealth are also a vital part of success.  Those who expect to live long make plans… have ambitions beyond the golf course or arm chair.

Society is catching on to the fact that the concepts of retirement and age 65 and pensions are frauds.

An article at shine.yahoo.com entitled “Aging Better” by Lindsay Powers gives us a clue.

Here are excerpts:  What’s the Perfect Age?  If You’re a Woman, It’s 53.   They say you can’t go back, but most women wouldn’t want to anyway.

That’s not surprising, according to New York City psychotherapist Robi Ludwig. “This is really developmentally the time of life that women plug into themselves and respect themselves, listen to their own voice, and develop their own voice, so it makes perfect sense that they would really feel good, because they’re doing that,” she tells Yahoo Shine.

“It’s almost like a second adulthood in the sense that you’ve played by other people’s rules, and now the name of the game is, ‘What works for me? What makes me happy?’ And that’s what this phase is all about.”  

Just 10 years ago, the same poll found that 41 was the ideal age. So what’s changed?

A lot has to do with the boomers themselves…the graying of America. Also, that the past few years have been rough economically, but by now many Americans in their 50s might feel like they’re back on track financially and professionally.

  For men, the ideal age is 47, the poll says.
  
Being in your 50s doesn’t have the same stigma as it did years ago.

We as a society are recognizing that the golden years can and should glow with a precious metal’s luster… not with the tarnish of rust.

Good Nutrition

Eating right is an important part of anti aging. This is part of Ecuador’s longevity secret…  the food is fresh.

Roberto Ribadeneira, head of the Ateam Ecuador, writes this about Ecuador’s food.

Ecuador’s medical services are inexpensive compared to North America, but how about avoiding these costs altogether? Having healthier food, less pollution and regular exercise improves health.

In Ecuador it is easy to get food that was harvested less than 24 hours.  Big oranges as fresh as they get.  Really ripe watermelon, tomato, lettuce, corn, berries and more, are available at a very low price.  25 oranges are just two dollars.  The same two dollars will buy a decent amount of just picked strawberries or blackberries and wherever you are in the country you can always get fresh fish.

Ecuador-food-photos

Ecuador Local Market. The fruit and vegetables are fresh every day

I was on the coast a couple of weeks ago.  The local market fish I ate that had been caught just a few hours before were my meal.  Any fresher and the fish would have been sold alive.  I bought half a pound of the largest premium shrimp for $15 and half a pound of calamari for $12. We had a nice lady who charged $15 a day to cook and clean the house.   She made a delicious ceviche with the shrimp, and rice with calamari. The meal was out of this world.

ecuador-food

An Ecuador fish market. The day before, this seafood was in the sea.

In restaurants we don’t ask if the juice is 100% natural. We expect that the juice, the fruit, the vegetables and the salad are fresh.

We take the fresh food for granted but find that those from North America are surprised. My mother was a diplomat  in Canada. When we lived in Ottawa  and we were so surprised that the fruits and vegetables were so expensive and rarely ripe or fresh.  Roberto

Ecuador Shaman Health Tip

Ecuador shamans look at good health as a balance between the elements of motion (air), fire (digestion) and earth (the physical parts of the body).  They believe that the element most easily throw off balance is air and that one way to create air disturbances is through indigestion.  Indigestion creates gas which interferes with the digestive process. Poor digestion leads to toxicity in the body which stresses the fire (digestive system).  If the digestive system cannot get rid of the toxins, they are then stored in the body creating earth problems.  Toxins stored in the cardiovascular system creates high blood pressure.  Toxins stored in the muscles creates fibromyalgia.   Toxins stored in the joints creates arthritis. Toxins stored in organs can create cancer.

Based on this belief the shamans teach eating habits that avoid indigestion.

One shamanic longevity tip is to never combine fats.  Many religious disciplines suggest this in one way or another.  Avoid eating meat and milk together is a dietary discipline that is well known.    In Ecuador locro (potato soup) is a popular food.  Usually this is served with cheese and avocado.  The Ecuador yatchak we lived and worked with taught us to eat only one… ether the cheese or the avocado….but not both.

Fats are the hardest food to digest to begin with.  They can remain and ferment in the digestive tract twice as long as grains and vegetables.  This fermentation creates toxins that stress the liver, kidneys and large intestines. These toxins interfere with  bacterial cultures, including those that help synthesize vitamin B complexes. The toxins also disrupt the villi of the small intestine that helps nutrients get absorbed into the blood.

The body produces digestive enzymes as a specific reaction to the food that enters the digestive system.  When different types of fat are combined the body cannot create the specific enzymes needed to facilitate the breakdown of both types of fat.  This leads to disruptions of the digestive process.

If multiple fats are combined regularly, the continued disruption can lead to a toxicity cascade that stresses the eliminative process and leads to toxicity being stored in the body.

We are again as we age better and this is good. We can enhance anti aging with Ecuador shamanic nutrition for better health and wealth.

Secret of the Hogberry

Gain Amazing Health Benefits with the Hogberry

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 those who were most active have a 25% lower chance of developing cancer because reduced body fat is possible pathway to lowering cancer risk.  Time Magazine has some good information on the relationship between exercise and reducing cancer.  Have a look below if you want to research more deeply (1).

intermittent fastng

Graph showing benefits of intermittent fasting.

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 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.

The way to avoid this storage of deadly toxicity is to keep stress down, while digestion and detoxification pathways remain good.

Burn Fat to Burn Toxins

When you burn fat not primarily for weight loss, (though you will lose weight) but for purification, you can 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.

Intermittent fasting is one way to get the body to burn fat.  There is a way of eating that helps reduce weight, improve energy and purify the body as it returns to a state of natural health.

This is a simple easy way to improve and restore feeling good, but works best when combined with better nutrition, moderate exercise and a purification program that helps make sure that the body is not overwhelmed with too much purification at once.

This is why I have written a short report entitled “The FAST Way to Better Health” that features one special tea so an intermittent fasting routine becomes doable and enjoyable.

The Key is in the Hogberry

Intermittent fasting is guaranteed to work, if you have even reasonable nutrition, moderate physical activity and stick with it.  The problem is in the sticking.  When the brain is hooked on metabolizing sugar it can be very demanding.   When we try going an extended period without a sugar, the brain will have a hissy fit and demand that we eat or drink something sweet or starchy or alcoholic.

Sticking through a fast just does not work when the brain pulls out its bag of tricks, from sweet whispers (just one chocolate won’t hurt- but it will!)  all the way to chills sweats and dizziness.   Intermittent fasting, without help, can require enormous discipline that most of us cannot maintain long enough.

I know, I tried intermittent fasting several times and failed.  Then I accidentally stumbled across the secret of the Hogberry that not only stops hunger but more importantly speeds up the process of switching from sugar metabolism to fat metabolism AND assists in the purifying process.  Once I tried using this support for the pancreas (among other things),  intermittent fasting became satisfying and enjoyable.  I am passing 45 days in this routine, and the steady energy just gets better and better.  I am not minding the reduced weight and better fitting clothing either!

“The FAST Way to Better Health” explains how intermittent fasting is not real fasting.  One does not stop eating with an intermittent fast, not even for a day.  You learn why this is such a healthy way to lose weight and detoxify fat cells to reduce risks of cancer, heart disease diabetes and senility.

More important you learn how to feel better almost from the very first day.  Reduce stress, gain smooth steady energy without 10:30am and 3:00pm  droops. Find out how to avoid being hungry right after you eat and how to make the cravings for sweets and junk food all but disappear.

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

This is the only way to attain this report.  Intermittent fasting can make your life better. It works best when you use the nutritional, exercise and purification tips outlined in these three reports.  As with all my reports and courses, satisfaction is guaranteed or your money back.  I want to be sure  that the information in “The FAST Way to Better Health” works for you.  The valuable knowledge you’ll gain in these reports works better when the nutrition, purification and exercise reports are combined so I have made a special offer.

I have created three shamanic health 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 Secret Chargemaster Revealed

Few places can destroy health and ruin a lifetime of savings faster than a hospital.  We are at risk from pocketbook surgery and the incredibly dangerous “Chargemaster”.   See below why chargemasters were normally kept secret, how a 2018 federal law requires their disclosure and how to gain protection from their abuse.

How can it be that medical costs are so high? Why is it so difficult to figure out the charge for a medical procedure?

The government in trying to help answer these questions began requiring hospitals from Jan. 1, 2019 to post their chargemaster lists.

These enormous lists of products and services ranging from a single aspirin up to a complicated surgery does little to answer these questions.

This very weak attempt to create transparency only provides data that is difficult to decipher and is mind-boggling for the consumer.

Chargemasters can include tens of thousands of items and procedures, with technical names and abbreviations that few can understand.

Plus when one goes into the hospital no one knows exactly what items and procedures will be necessary since treatment can vary widely based on the age and health and condition.

So listing the chargemaster isn’t helpful or meaningful, but simply gives hospitals one more excuse for outrageous costs… “but we listed what these costs”.

Modern American health care is under pressure.  Despite horrendous costs, the system is faltering.  At times the care is more dangerous than the illness.  For example hospitals are the worst place to have a heart attack.  The University of North Carolina, did a study and found that 40% of the patients who had hearts attacks in the hospital died before being discharged.  (The study compared that with only a 4% death rate for those who had heart attacks outside the hospital.)

Plus it was recently revealed that medical endoscopy scopes in hospitals were infecting patients with deadly drug-resistant bacteria.  The facts about this had not been previously disclosed.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that hospital-acquired infections alone kill 99,000 people each year.  Here is an even worse hospital mortality fact.

CDC Stats

Click on image.

The image above shows a report from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention.  Hospital-acquired infections alone kill 57% more Americans every year than all car accidents and falls put together.

Often, what patients catch in the hospital is 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 because of the secrets in the chargemaster and the people who do 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.

hospital bill

The hospital bill above is part of a story about a $110,000 infection and why hospital “chargemasters” are often secret.  This story tells how one person with resistant devastating infection ran up a $110,000 hospital bill only to find that Medicare would only pay $2,300 from treatment of infection.

Secret of the Chargemasters

Being in a hospital can kill as well as cure.  There are odds on that.  What is more certain is that hospitals can kill our finances.

The ‘average’ cost of hospital care is rising because the leading hospitals are front runners in figuring out how to amass market power so they can  raise prices and decrease competition.  A codeine pill that costs $20 at a hospital costs 50 cents at Rite-Aid or Walgreens.  Hospitals have “chargemasters” a price list created by each hospital, that typically has more than ten thousand entries, so almost nothing — even an aspirin, a bag of IV fluid, or a visit from a physical therapist to help a patient get out of bed — is free.  However, those lists are usually secret.

Hospital Failure

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.

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.  Shamanic Wisdom accumulated over the millennia can fill the gap.

The way to escape the dangers of the high cost deteriorating health care system, 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 shamanic 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 around the world and checked out just about every source on natural health care.  We have spent years living with natural health care insiders, and trying what they offered.

We took thousands of readers to Ecuador.  Many met the shamans there and we saw some health miracles take place (including a miracle with me!)

Since not everyone can go to Ecuador or travel the world, we have created three Shamanic Natural Health Care Reports that can help improve our natural health.  They 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 shamanic 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 the Andean shamanic nutrition helps them kick start their health with weight trimming.  Here is what a few readers have written to us:

These are typical notes I have received from readers.

*  “Hi Merri,  things have worked out well.  I am healthier than I have ever been, lost 32 pounds since arriving in Sept.  Bought a house and have finished the first level.  What an amazing place you have found”.  Thanks Phil – Ecuador

*  “We’ve decided to change our eating patterns since we came home because we so enjoyed our meals at the farm and how we felt physically.  Thanks so much. With love” JJ New – Chicago

*  “After eating all that delicious food I gained 3 lbs but it must be in muscle weight as my pants fit loosely!”  R Vickers – New Mexico

*  “The food was so delicious and I thought I ate a lot, but during the week I lost six pounds!”  WB Australia.

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 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 with an Ecuador Taita Yatchak and his apprentices.

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

shaman

The “Sunski” report has been 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 is on the line.  So we consulted dozens of top professions who know a lot about natural health.  We spoke with holistic MDs chiropractors, Indian Vidyas, Andean Yatchaks, and other self-reliant natural health experts who live this way 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 we eat ever again 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 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.

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  to tell you the truth).

Here are a few facts and health tools you gain:

*  The single biggest constraint you’ll face in your eating habits  – and how you can eliminate it by adding two simple recipes to your Sunski system.

*  How to calculate exactly how much food you need so you don’t over or under build your nutritional plan.

*  A simple solution for making sure that your food delivers what your body needs when you need it.

*  What components you can choose for yourself and how to avoid mass diets that seem to work for every one except… you.

*  The best long term solution for avoiding sugar.

*  Use sweet spices to compensate for stress.

*  Specific types of unique spices that give you the biggest energy bang for your buck.

*  Spices that cleanse and purify.

*  Three changes in your fruit consumption that is a critical component for long term purificatioN.

*  The best times to eat specific foods.

*  How to direct different foods to different parts of the body.

*  Three teas that add a resilience to your natural health system that are easy to make and enjoy at home at a low cost.

*  Why it is good (in fact almost a requirement) to sometimes eat junk food.

This report on nutrition also includes  23 special recipes of quick and easy but perfectly balanced meals and snacks.

Learn how nutritional secrets can help keep you out of the hospital.

These reports focus on how to have good natural health so you can remain independent and avoid costly medical care.  The second report looks at purification and detoxification.

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

Unlock the Mystery of Key Muscles

For example this third report unveils one exercise that is a nutritional trick  that has nothing to do with what we eat.  The trick is to energize and coordinate the digestive system by exercising a set of key muscles as we eat.  The body has a number of key muscles that regulate breathing, digestion, circulation, elimination and muscular motion.  The 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.

Part of the report focuses on how to have financial balance in investing and business so you can remain independent.

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

Oxygenation-Coordination:  Learn how to gain extra oxygen with the Llama Walk.

Purification: We look at Andean purification herbs and purifying teas.

Energy Boosting: Eating balanced, correctly prepared organic food and drinking herbal teas designed for body type and body imbalances.

Occupation: Physical labor, suited to your body type and condition range from gardening and animal care to path building and clearing the woods.

Relaxation: Learn how Meditation, L-Thianine and Baroque Music enhance thinking and relieve stress.

Body Types Made EZ:  Learn how they cause and influence nine body types and their imbalances.  Discover seven easy ways to determine your body type and how to keep it in balance.

Healthy Eating Made EZ:  Gain delicious, power packed weight reducing recipes from easy to obtain products from super market foods. Coddle Yourself Egg-High Protein Country Cottage Pie-Low Carb-Veggie Chile & Spaghetti- Weightless Bread-High Mountain Pure Protein Quinoa-Better Oatmeal of Steel- Several Soups for Super Strength-Berry Good Crunch Treat and Waist Less Apple Crumble are just a few.

Exercise for Strength and Better Health Made EZ:  Medicine is dose.  Too much exercise is as bad or worse as not enough. Learn how to let comfort be your exercise guide. Move with momentum-some exercises activate all muscles and provide the benefit of leverage, momentum and convenience so 12 minutes of exercise a day is enough. Blend body and mind-Alpha exercises take you into the zone so you win from the inside out.  Spin and bend-blend exercise secrets from India, the Andes and the East for easy and better health.  The Gentle Touch-if you have to breathe through the mouth you have done too much.

Here is what others have said about this information:

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.

There are many ways to improve health naturally.

Fall Eating


Fall into better eating cycles with an Andean shamanic nutritional tip.

Autumn is on its way.

gary scott sunflowers

When the sunflowers in our front yard bloom their spectacular industry is a forewarning… “frosts are not too far away”.

When the seasons change, we change what we wear and… we should also change what we eat.

Right now the Andean shamans of Ecuador say “eat heat cleansing food”. T  his removes the heat build up that takes place in our bodies during the summer months.

One fall eating health tip is to clean out summer heat with a watermelon flush.  We all know about spring cleanings… but internal autumnal cleansing is not as well known.

Ecuador shamanic nutritional health sciences are based around the body being a balance of air, fire and water.  All food is classified as air, fire or water pacifying or aggravating.

All seasons are also classified as an air, fire or water season.  Summer not surprisingly is a fire season.  autumn winter the air season and Spring water.  The basic health tip is to eat foods that balance the seasons.  In summer (fire season) eat foods that pacify fire (more sweet… more berries and fruit).  In autumn (air season) eat foods that pacify air (more fat, nuts and such).  In Spring (water season) eat foods that pacify water (more greens and salads).

During the summer it is easy… even likely…. especially in the aggressive Western fired up societies to accumulate too much heat in the system.

Now is a good time to get reduce this fire and I learned a pleasant way to from an Ecuador shaman that can also make you look five years younger.

Eat watermelon.

watermelon

Natural health comes from a balance between three physical elements, motion (air), material (water) and digestion (fire).

Reducing fire especially in the summer is beneficial for health because fire rules digestion and when out of balance we do not digest food or any information correctly.

However, fire also rules beauty because fire imbalances are reduced by the body through the skin. Too much fire creates rashes, acne, blemishes, poor skin luster, dull hair and much more.The three fire reducing tricks below not only enhance health, but also help clear your skin and make it glow. The first trick is to eat watermelon… lots of it at one time (and with nothing else) and fresh!

Watermelon is a cleanser.

Eat a whole, big one if you can.

This cleansing works at the beginning of each season as the flushing action removes excessive fire, water and air.

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

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

Make the melon your entire meal and eat nothing for three to four hours before and after. Sound crazy? I thought so but tried it after watching a Shaman prescribe it for a woman suffering a severe rash (a summer fire imbalance). I felt so good that I now make this a regular habit during the summer…and thoroughly enjoy it!

We look at seven cornerstones of Andean nutritional system at our Super Thinking + International Investing and Business seminar this October 4-5-6:

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

#2: Eating a combination of food for ideal digestion.

#3: Eating clean organic food prepared and served by happy, joyful people.

#4: Eating in good spirits at the right times.

#5: Chewing in the correct way.

#6: Eating purifying and satisfying meals.

#7: Balancing nutrition with correct sleep and exercise.

Why nutrition and  health at an investing seminar?

Having a clear mind, good health and avoiding major health care costs are some of the most important investments we can make.  Our courses take a global view on investing and business from the macrocosm (multi currency global investing) to the microcosm (smart thinking, good health and strong energy).   Everlasting wealth and a good lifestyle require all.

After you summer cleansing it will be time to start adding more good, healthy fats in your diet with Omega 3 and as the sun wanes we’ll want to keep up our Vitamin D.

About Omega 3

One speaker at many of our seminars is Jim Vigue.  He is a member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and the American Association of Drugless Practitioners and is board certified in alternative medicine and has a Ph.D. in holistic health.

Jim is also a former USA Baseball/Major League Players Association Coach of the Year as well as an award winning author on such diverse subjects as baseball, finance and menopause.  He works with many professional  and non professional athletes and his baseball book spoke out against steroids long before the condemnation  was popular.  Jim’s most successful book has been his book on menopause (and other mid life issues women and their partners face).

Gary, I just received these numbers from one of your seminar delegates who took up and stuck with our Omega 3 Vitamin D program.

Before                                             After
 
Glucose level before 102           glucose level now  76
 
Chol. level before 189                  chol. level now 169
 
Triglyceride level before 235      triglyceride level now 114
 
Vitamin D level before 29            vitamin D level now 52
 
Testosterone before 325              testosterone now 638
 
Plus he lost 15 lbs and is feeling MUCH better.
 
This shows you if you want to make an effort (and you know what to do) you can make a significant difference in a relatively short period of time.

Multi Currency Value Investing Seminar

Old Accord Creates New Profits – Multi Currency Investments.

Earn more with multi currency stock market breakouts.

Improve Safety – Increase Profits

Learn how to improve the safety of your savings and investments by selecting good value and diversified investments in a multi-currency portfolio.

Few decisions are as important to your wealth as the value of the markets and currencies you invest in.  This has been our area of expertise since the 1970s and we have worked with and advised some of the largest currency traders in the world.

Gain Protection First – Against the Dollar’s Purchasing Power Loss.  In 1913 the The Federal Reserve Act created the Federal Reserve Bank to protect the purchasing power of the US dollar, which has since lost about 94% of its purchasing power.  Here is its price compared with gold since 1900.

Dollar chart from pricedingold.com (1)

The Fed has let the dollar lose most of its strength plus has allowed interest rates to fall so low, that safe investments cannot keep pace with the drop in purchasing power.

multi-currency-chart

Chart from Grandfather Economic Report (2)

Many investors have forgotten about the risk of a falling dollar because the greenback has been strong for the past five years.  This temporary dollar strength came after the great recession of 2009 just as there was temporary dollar strength after the great recession of the 1980s.  Then about six years after the recession, an agreement was made by major governments to weaken the dollar.

There was a severe global economic recession affecting much of the developed world in the late 1970s and early 1980s.  The United States and Japan exited the recession relatively early, but high unemployment would continue to affect Europe and the UK through to at least 1985.  As a consequence between 1980 and 1985, the US dollar had appreciated by about 50% against the Japanese yen, Deutsche mark, French franc and British pound, the currencies of the next four biggest economies at the time. Then the governments reached an agreement and exchange rate values of the dollar versus the yen declined by 51% from 1985 to 1987.

Now the world is again in the same place.  The recession is over.  Europe is a bit behind in recovery and the dollar is higher than before the recession.

There is no reason for the greenback to be  strong.

The agreement in 1985 was called the Plaza Accord.   Over just two years the greenback dropped nearly 50% versus other major currencies.  The next accord will generate great profits for those who know what to do while it ruins the purchasing power of dollar back investments.

The strong US dollar and low interest rates have created one of the biggest stock and multi currency breakout opportunities in history.  Learn how to create a plan to profit from multi currency shifts ahead.

One reason for the potential gains is that stock markets and currency values are cyclical.  Due to low interest rates created by the 2009 economic downturn, the US and a few other equity markets have risen to some of their highest prices, ever.  These markets offer very poor value now.  The steep valuation creates incredible profit potential but also hides some enormous risks.  Learn how to develop an investing strategy based of earnings, cash flows, dividends and book values to increase potential for profit and reduce the risks.

Next Extra Profit Created by Value Breakouts

Over the history of US equity markets, the  price of overall markets have risen about 9.1 percent, respectively, compounded annually.  Yet over more than a hundred years of stock market activity,  a majority of the profits have come from just a very few dramatic breakouts.

Equity markets are ruled in the short term by emotions that create unpredictable ups and downs.  Numerous fears of defaults, worries of double dip recessions, high unemployment, concerns about fiscal cliffs, hold investors back.  Yet global population growth and advances in production and prosperity are relentless economic fundamentals that increase value.

When fear holds back a a fundamentally rising value, rising profit potential grows.  Values increase as prices stagnate.  Then markets break free and rocket upwards creating wealth, prosperity and growth.

Find out which breakouts are likely to take place next.

Stocks rise from the cycle of war, productivity and demographics. Cycles create recurring profits. Economies and stock markets cycle up and down around every 15 years as shown in this graph.

stock-Charts

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

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

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

Learn how the Cyber War (WWIV) may change the way we live and act and how this will affect currencies and investments.

Learn:

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

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

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

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

keppler asset management chart

This chart based on a 45 year portfolio study shows that holding a diversified good value portfolio (based on a  good value strategy) for 13 month’s time, increases the probability of 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.

Learn how much leverage to use.  Leverage is like medicine, the key is dose.  Buffett leverages his portfolio at a ratio of approximately 1.6 to 1.  This rate of expansion by the way is called the “Golden Ratio”.  It is a mathematical formula that controls the growth of most natural things; trees, the shape of leaves, the spiral of shells, as well as the way economies and societies grow.

We’ll sum the strategy, how to leverage cheap, safe, quality stocks and for what period of time based on your circumstances.

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

Enjoy investing more with slow, worry free, good value investing.  Stress, worry and fear are three of an investor’s worst enemies.  These are major foundations of the Behavior Gap, a trait exhibited by most investors, that causes them to underperform any market they choose.  The behavior gap is created by natural human responses to fear.  The losses created by this gap grow when investors trade short term under stress.

Learn how to put meaning into your investing by creating profitable strategies that combine good value investments with unique, personal goals.

Learn how to span 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, when they should embrace risk.  Purpose is the most powerful motivator,  stronger than fear and greed.  One powerful way to overcome the behavior gap is to invest with a purpose.

Combine your needs and capabilities with the secrets and the math of our good value model portfolio.

Share ideas about my good value portfolio.  My personal investment portfolio comes from a continual analysis of international stock markets and a comparison of their value based on current book to price, cash flow to price, earnings to price, average dividend yield, return on equity and cash flow return.

Markets included in this portfolio are:

• Norway
• Australia
• Hong Kong
• Japan
• Singapore
• United Kingdom
• Taiwan
• South Korea
• China

These markets have been chosen based on four pillars of valuation.

• Absolute Valuation
• Relative Valuation
• Current versus Historic Valuation
• Current Relative versus Relative Historic Valuation

Learn how to use Country ETFs to easily construct a diversified, risk-controlled, equally weighted representative country portfolios in all of these good value countries.

To achieve this goal my portfolio consists of Country Index ETFs that track an index of shares in a specific country.  These country ETFs provide diversification into a basket of equities in the good value countries.  The expense ratios for most ETFs are lower than those of the average mutual fund as well so such ETFs provide diversification and cost efficiency.

This is an easy, simple and effective approach to zeroing in on value because little management and guesswork is required.  You are investing in a diversified portfolio of good value indices.  A BUY rating for an index does NOT imply that any stock in that country is an attractive investment, so you do not have to pick and choose shares.  You can invest in the index which is like investing in all the shares in the index.  All you have to do is invest in an ETF that in turn invests passively in all the shares of the index.

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

The Test for Low Cost Trading

Research put every part of this portfolio in place, except knowing the best, easiest and least expensive way to buy.  A search for an optimal way to buy and hold boiled down to two methods.  One tactic to test was to use a unique online broker that appeared to offer the lowest cost deal.  The other approach was to use a community bank in Smalltown USA.  The small town bank that I use looks after my 401K trust account and their service is first class.  The benefit of small banks is that they still treat us as a human beings (instead of a number) and when we need, it’s easy to go right to the top to answer a question or get a problem resolved.  There are no call centers and the bank and the person looking after my account is just around the corner.

I created a test to see which offered the least expensive service.

Working with my banker in Smalltown USA,  I created two accounts, one at the online broker and the other at the bank. I placed $40,000 in each.

I set up the order for the country ETFs online, while my trust manager set up orders for the identical amounts of the same shares in his system.  Then we got on the phone, coordinated our timing and on a count of three each pushed the button “BUY”.

The results of this test  show how you can gain on any purchase of country ETFs.

Rosy Health With Roses


Merri and I love roses and use roses for rosy health as well.

ecuador-roses

Ecuador Roses in our kitchen.

Ecuador is one of the best places on earth to grow roses and Ecuador’s shamans use rose in their aqua flora and various healing compounds.

However neither shamanism nor rose healing is limited to Ecuador, the Andes or Latin America.

Merri and study natural healing in Asia, Eastern Europe and India as well as Ecuador.

Shamanism is said to have  origins from the Evenk language (Tungusic) of North Asia and was introduced to the West after Russian forces conquered the shamanistic Khanate of Kazan.

Shamans everywhere use altered states of consciousness to heal and they use many substances in this process.   Rose and its essences are one of the vital compounds used.

In Ayurved, the Indian science of healing, the word for rose means “everyoung” because of  the youth-promoting benefits of rose for the emotional heart, the mind, balancing the digestive system; rejuvenating the colon; enhancing metabolism and especially rejuvenating the skin.

Rose is used in Eastern Europe shamanism as well.   Here is an excerpt from an article entitled ” Healing power of rose treats most dangerous diseases” in the health section of Pravda, the Russian newspaper”.     Bacteria die within five minutes when contacted with fresh rose petals

Rose is an astonishingly beautiful flower which is why it is poetized and immortalized in legends. Long ago, the first rose was raised from an ordinary dog-rose; some unknown gardener did it about four thousand years ago.

Ancient doctors used rose water to treat upset nerves, fumed patients suffering from lungs diseases with rose incense and gave extracts of rose petals to patients suffering from heart and kidney diseases.

Attar of roses is the basic medical component of roses; it stimulates and harmonizes people’s immune and nervous systems. It also improves activity of endocrine glands, removes sclerous disorders in organs and revives cells. Attar of roses is good for digestive tract as it heals mucous membranes, fights disbacteriosis and fermentative deficiency in stomach and intestine.

Rose petals contain vitamin C, carotene, B group vitamins and vitamin K that is essential for haemopoesis. Almost all mineral substances of Mendeleyev’s periodic table can be found in rose petals. They contain calcium that influences metabolism and assimilation of foodstuffs; also potassium which is important for normal heart activity, copper that participates in haemopoesis and improves activity of endocrine glands; iodine that is good for thyroid gland can be also found in rose petals. The list of rose’s virtues is long enough which allows to call rise a universal natural medicine.

Bacteria die within five minutes when contacted with fresh rose petals which makes rose a perfect medicine for fighting skin diseases. Fresh rose petals will help cure festering wounds and burns; they may also alleviate allergic itching.

Powder of dried rose petals mixed with honey is an effective medicine against mouth inflammations, stomatitis and paradontose. The mixture should be rubbed into inflamed gums. Headaches, sickness and weakness can be cured with inhalation of roses and attar of roses. Rose inhalations are also recommended to people with poor nervous system, liable to neurosis and depressions. Put a bowl with hot water and rose petals in the room in case you suffer from nervous diseases, cold in the head, cough and flu.

Attar of roses perfectly tones up the cardiac muscle that is why doctors prescribe rose inhalations for stenocardia treatment. Bath with rose petals is a perfect remedy against nervous diseases: it tones up, rejuvenates, relieves anxiety and purifies skin. Pour boiling water over half a glass of rose petals and infuse in a closed bowl to preserve attar of roses. Pour the infusion and the petals into the bath; the infusion’s healing power will be stronger if beetroot juice is added to this bath. Never throw faded rose bunches away and make curative baths of them.

Spraying with rose water is recommended for treatment of many diseases. Pour a glass of boiling water over 10g of rose petals and infuse in a covered bowl. Everyday spraying within two weeks is recommended to people suffering from nervous disorders. In this case, spraying with warm rose water should be done on the upper third of the back. Spraying with rose water is good for healthy people as well to strengthen the nervous system and immunity. Apply rose water to skin and slightly rub. Warm rose water bath for feet helps cure rheumatism; hot compress with rose water applied to sacrum is good against radiculitis. Wrap a bad-sheet wetted with rose water round the body to tone up the organism after a surgical operation. Then muffle up with a dry bed-sheet and a blanket.

Tea made of rose petals (a tea-spoon of dried rose petals per a glass of boiling water) is good against cold, pharyngitis, bronchitis and various neuroses; it is a vitaminous drink as well. Rose petal jam is a wonderful natural medicine especially in cold weather.

We all know that a rose by any other name is as sweet and has as much beauty.  The rose by any name not only soothes the eye, but is a balm for the body as well.

This is why Merri and I regularly use Candace Newman’s Rose Rejuvenation Face Oil on our faces… hands and as a deodorant.  Everyone comments on the aroma and it makes my clothes smell great!  Plus this oil promotes good health.

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

Only one or two drops are required so a bottle of Candace Newman’s Rejuvenation Face Oil  goes a long ways. One bottle lasts for a couple of months for me.

Essential Oil Deodorant for Natural Health

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

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

ecuador shamans

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Aluminum Downside

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

Antiperspirants and Disease:  It’s the Pits

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

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

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

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

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

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

Then there is the question of  parabens.

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

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

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

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

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

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

The essential oils in the formula are:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We cleanse internally as well as explained below.

Beyond Chelation

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What is L-Arginine?

L-Arginine is the biological precursor of nitric oxide.

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

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

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

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

There are many benefits from removing plaque from the body:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Vitality Force supports:

* Cardiovascular health

* Healthy immune function

* Anti-aging properties

* Improved energy levels

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

* Increased efficiency of oxygen utilization for energy production

* Enhanced numbers of mitochondria to actually produce energy

The Vitality Force formula includes:

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

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

The Ultimate Key to Vitality

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

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

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

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

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

Healing power of rose treats most dangerous diseases”

Shamanic Purification Tea


This Andean natural health idea uses tea.

ecuador real estate

The national drink of Ecuador is herbal tea… not espresso cafe… real infusions made from the fresh plants purchased in the market.  Much healthier… even medicinal!

The shamans taught us an Andean purification tip… for shiny hair and healthy skin.

When we lived in an Indigenous village… there was no running water (until our foundation put a system in).  We always wondered… how did the residents remain so clean… fresh looking…. hair shiny and healthy… without showers or baths.

We discovered that the trick is purification tea.

Here are teas being sold in Otavalo market.

Here is star anise. This is part of a really pleasant shamanic purification brew. 

ecuador real estate

This is a traditional shamanic purification tea to be drunk and bathed in.

One part sweet pepper pictured here (called black cardomon in the US) simmered with cinnamon bark and chamomile.

ecuador real estate

Take eight ounces each of star anise,  black cardomon, cinnamon and  chamomile.

Bring to almost a boil.  Simmer for 20 minutes… let soak for an hour more.  Set aside a tea pot full.   Dilute in three gallons of water.  While warm ladle over your head and body in the shower.   Do not rinse.

Drink the tea pot full as desired.

This is delicious and is a great cleanser for the skin and body.

Here is another natural purification tip.

Longevity Secret

Here is a longevity secret.

This is  a recent comment from a reader in the Pacific Northwest:  Gary, Thank you very much for this product.  I have taken it for 2 months, am down 20 lbs of fat and put on 5 or 6 lbs of muscle.  I currently weigh 194lbs on my way down to 178 where I was 2 ½ years ago. My blood pressure has gone from dangerously high to 133 over 83 and headed further South. I am 70 years old and feel terrific since using this product.  It has done wonders for my energy.

If you see more orders come from my area  I may be the cause of it as I’ve been spreading the word.  I’ve shared it with personal trainers in my gym who train boomers and others and have some credibility as they see it working well for me.  

Ecuador Longevity Secret

ecuador-shaman

Merri and I lived and worked with this Ecuador Yatchak for seven years This photo was taken after a purification ceremony at a sacred spring.

A huge health focus by this yatchak was purification… from the inside and out.  He had us walk in mountain mists. The negative ions in the mists attached to free radicals and purified the skin to cleanse us from the inside out.

Another purification was of our blood. Herbs… minerals and a low calcium diet.  There was almost no dairy served.

Since it is difficult for most of us to eat cleansing food in the West, this message looks at a longevity alternative and begins by showing  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.

Access to good health care is vital and should be enjoyed by all.  Yet it is not.  It had been a Western birthright… each generation living longer than the last.  New research shows this is no longer true for all.  Government studies show that there are widening gaps in life expectancy based on income, race, sex, education and geography.

There are two Americas measured by wealth and  health, and the distortions are growing.

A government-sponsored study by Harvard researchers found that life expectancy actually declined in a substantial number of counties from 1983 to 1999, particularly for women. Most of the counties with declines are in the Deep South, along the Mississippi River, and in Appalachia, as well as in the southern Plains and Texas.

The article went on to say that the people of Appalachia used to be among the longest lived. I can believe it. There is a family cemetery here on our farm. These five headstones show the occupants lived to be 86, 91, 95, 100 and 115!  The 115 year old lived from 1794 to 1909. I  wonder what type of medical insurance she had back here in these hills?

Here is that cemetery.

Health-Savings-Longevity

This problem of declining service is growing in more sectors than just American health care.

This growing gap is a concern on many fronts…but means, that in many parts of the Western world, good health care is only available to an increasingly smaller portion of top earners.

To overcome this problem Merri and take many steps to improve how we feel each day and hopefully enhance our activity and longevity.  We meditate daily… have a strong sense of purpose in our business and life, keep a regime of regular, mild exercise and yoga and eat our own or locally grown food whenever we can.  We also use numerous nutritional disciplines… including a mix of nutrients recommended some years ago by a reader and seminar delegate.

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

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 (TM) 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 Dr. Gordon’s 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 are 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 is 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 is so convenient. Everything is in one simple daily packet. Especially when we travel we just bring along a packet for each day we are on the road. No more loading up pill boxes or bringing bottles (or suitcases full of bottles) of vitamins and stuff.

We liked this product so much we began passing the favor on to many delegates at seminar.  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 Improved and telling us great things about their experiences.

Here is an example of raves we receive on April 21, 2012 from a delegate who received a month’s supply in early March:

I was introduced to and given 30 days supply of a product (for which I must thank my good friend, Merri Scott, profusely) that is clinically proven to clean out the blood and much much more.

Almost Miraculous results?  Well…you be the judge.

Look at the 2 blood tests (lipids,sugars etc.) I had done recently, just 2 months apart.

My Cholesterol was 330 then, 169 now!
My triglycerides were 1350 then, 199 now!

Both incredibly, dangerously high, if fact doctor said he never saw or even heard of Tri’s so high.   (I checked on the internet, others do have them that high).

My (FBS) Blood sugar was 150,  now 129!

Hemaglobin count up appreciably (red blood cells), which is real good too!

And Blood Pressure at the time was 130/80, a bit high, now 107/70= Perfect said the doc!

Man I feel a whole lot better too.

How did I do it?

1) Exercise greatly intensified & consistent= 3-5 days a week in gym weight-lifting, plus biking-walking-swimming.

2) Diet= a) Dropped fatty meats (ie. Bacon/Pork chops etc).
             b) “NO WHITES ALLOWED” DIET= No white Sugar, Flour or Starch (yes= ouch!).
                 b-1= Cut non-white and white GLUTENS (mostly Gluten-free) too!
                 b-2= Mucho water, and only purely natural fruit juices… fresh squeezed & ground (minimized frequency).
                 b-3= More adamantly continued NO ALCOHOL consumption!
             c) Added more fresh veggies & fruits, as many as can be found in BZ (Not many veggies variety esp).

I had been adjusting diet and starting to exercise (Gym= Weights & Biking) 3 months before the tests so who knows if they were even higher before I tested?

The slight dieting and much more exercising alone, evidently, did not change it much!

I have lost about 33 lbs of fat ,and gained 10 pounds of muscle, so I am down 23 lbs, from 244 to 221!

Lost some love-handle & gut inches ! I am going for under 200, over the next few months,where I haven’t been for about almost 20 years!

I have had high cholesterol and triglycerides, since I was in my mid to late 30’s (now 58),and always did diet and exercise changes to adjust them down a bit, but never were they anywhere near this “before drastic action” high  before, nor have they ever been this low after the 2nd test and resultant phenomenal improvements! I continue to refuse to take the poisonous Pharmaceuticals Doc’s keep trying to stuff down my gut! No PHARMA. PHARMA-KILLS!

“Health is our greatest Wealth”…no assets have real value when we lose it!

Thank God for: good friends, good food, good info, good nutrition, good energy, good exercise, and good health!

May Goodness & Mercy follow & lead us, over the mountains and thru the valleys, revealing light thru the darkness all the days of our lives!

I DO FEEL SO GOOD again!  Via Con Dios !

They reordered so much of it through us that I decided to make it available to all my readers at a really special price… lower than I believe you can get anywhere on the internet to see if readers are interested in obtaining Beyond Chelation Improved through us.

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

Dr. Garry Gordon of Payson, Arizona, is one of the fathers of the Chelation Therapy movement and he developed this cardiovascular nutritional supplement called “Beyond Chelation”.

This supplement combines more than sixty ingredients, known to have beneficial effects, into one total cardiovascular support program. “The name of this new product states exactly what it is,” says Dr. Gordon. “It’s what the public should be taking if they’ve already had chelation or can’t afford it, or simply want to take advantage of new breakthroughs that permit us to safely and effectively reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.” In addition to promoting heart health, Dr. Gordon has found that his supplement has multiple anti-aging effects. Along with Dr. Dean Ornish of Sausalito, California, who demonstrated in a five-year study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association that heart disease could be reversed, Dr. Gordon believes that 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, Beyond Chelation may provide similar effects. In his own practice, Dr. Gordon has been able to document 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 so that fewer than 5% 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 than 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.

What is “Beyond Chelation”? With over 30 years of experience as a clinician, researcher & educator in Chelation Therapy, Dr. Gordon has formulated a comprehensive cardiovascular nutritional support supplement designed to maintain and promote cardiovascular health and combined it with the finest ingredients known for mental and physical well being within a product known as “Beyond Chelation,” the new cardio-support, multi-vitamin-mineral of the future augmented by amino-acids, polysaccharides, herbs and more.

There is one more benefit and that is the savings and convenience. Taking Beyond Chelation Improved provides almost every vitamin and mineral that we were previously taking in separate form. Merri and I have actually reduced our spending on vitamins and minerals. Plus Beyond Chelation Improved comes in a handy nine capsule cellophane packets, that is easy to carry and take each day. One container has thirty packets, a month’s supply, which at $59.998 (49.99 plus $9.99 shipping) makes this a very inexpensive way to get most of the vitamins and minerals you already take as you gain the chelation benefits.

Beyond Chelation Improved (TM) consists of 30 packets with 9 capsules. Each packet contains: three multi-vitamins/minerals, three detoxifiers (which deliver a combined total of 400 mgs of EDTA), one Omega 3 marine lipid concentrate, one evening primrose oil and one Ginkgo Biloba capsule. This formula provides the finest multi-vitamin/mineral available and essential ingredients to feed the heart, chelators to help rid the body of heavy metals and help control chronic inflammation, which now is known to be the MAJOR cause of heart attacks and strokes. It also provides Ginkgo Biloba with phosphatidyl serine and choline for their proven neuroprotective effects, as well as their anti-platelet activity.

Dr. Gordon has purposely left IRON out of this supplement because recent research has linked the availability of iron to infectious organisms in arteries, which are now proven to be directly linked to blood clots that cause 85% of heart attacks and strokes.

A reader wrote: This formula helped produce MIRACULOUS results for me in 30 days! No it’s NOT MLM, and NO I do NOT sell it!

Cholesterol from 330 to 169…triglycerides from 1355 to 199…blood sugar from 150 to 120…blood pressure from 130 to 107… plus aided in fat loss, energy gain…overall well-being…along with Exercise and the “NO WHITE” (sugar-flour-starch) diet!

I BLESS Gary & Merri Scott (GaryaScott.com) for introducing and gifting it to me, when I was at their Super-learning Spanish  and Super-thinking course (which I highly recommend too= Mucho Mejor!) . It just may have saved my life…or helped alot!   SALUD! Health is our greatest Wealth!

Longevity comes in many ways… prevention and good medical intervention when prevention did not do the job.  Beyond Chelation and Ecuador health care are answers to both.
