Sleep Aids During Stress


A good night’s sleep,  one of  the best things for good health, is often hard to fine.

We lived in a high stress world before the pandemic, riots and demonstrations and increased tensions with China brought higher levels of unrest.

This added stress exacerbates sleep disorders.

About a third of the population were already experiencing acute, or short-term, insomnia. The pandemic, along with the increased social and economic turmoil has made this problem worse.

Sleeping well is important for our good health. Insomnia has negative the cognitive consequences, from inability to focus to general irritability. Chronic insomnia is linked to diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and hypertension, obesity, increased risk of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

Mental health problems and depression are also complicated by a lack of sleep.

The article says: Specialist at Chan School forum says problem is becoming more common, and offers tips for  falling, staying asleep.

Here are excerpts: Sleep is emerging as the latest casualty of the COVID-19 crisis. Too many sleepless nights can aggravate both physical and mental health problems, but a few simple adjustments to our already altered routines may resolve our bedtime issues before they snowball. “Coronavirus, social distancing, and acute insomnia: How to avoid chronic sleep problems before they get started” was the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health online forum on Wednesday, the fourth in a series of weekly sessions addressing the emotional and psychological effects of the pandemic.

Calling the current situation a “perfect storm of sleep problems,” Donn Posner, the forum’s featured speaker, pointed out how disrupted daily routines worsen the sleep-robbing stress of the pandemic.

“Think of sleep problems as infection,” said Posner, president of Sleepwell Associates and an adjunct clinical associate professor at Stanford University School of Medicine. “We want to jump on it quickly. Think of it as a risk factor that we want to get on top of lest it spread.”

We can use lettuce to let us sleep!

Lettuce can be a super health food, that helps us be more mentally alert and longer lived, but not in the normal, direct, eating way.

Merri and I find that growing our own organic lettuce is fulfilling and fun and brings a huge bonus.

In Florida, during the autumn and winter we grow lettuce in our greenhouse.

Lettuce is part of three simple steps can help us sleep better so we’ll live longer and think more clearly.

#1: Reduce digestive overload at night.   Everything that our senses process is a form of digestion.  Eat lightly in the evening. Turn off the news and violent or negative emotion inducing shows. Put down stimulating books before going to sleep.

#2: Go to bed before 10pm.  The body has natural rhythms connected to the sun.  Sleep is most natural from 9pm to 5am.

#3: Drink warm milk with lettuce.  Researchers have found that when bioactive peptides in milk are taken before bed, the improvements in sleep are remarkable:

  • Promotes deeper sleep
  • Supports more restorative sleep
  • Induces relaxation at the level needed for sleep
  • Supports anxiety that disturbs sleep
  • Improves numerous stress markers

Even better, drink the raw milk that does not have added hormones, chemicals and antibiotics.  Unnecessary homogenization and the wrong type of pasteurization also reduce the benefits of milk.  An alternative to raw milk when it is not available is non-homogenized, vat pasteurized, chemical, antibiotic and hormone-free milk.  This is available in many health oriented grocery stores.

Why cook with lettuce?

This tip was given to me by an Andean yatchak who rarely explained why, but a bit of research provided an explanation about how lettuce can bring sleep.  Lettuce contains an opium-like substance called lactucin that has sedative and analgesic properties.  Lactucin has been called “Lettuce opium”.  It is a latex, lactucarium and physically resembles opium as a white fluid and can be reduced to a thick solid.  The Egyptians refined it.  Refined lettuce opium was sold as a drug in the United States in the 1800s.

Lettuce cooked in milk creates a one-two knock out punch of the bioactive peptides and lactucin.

Like milk, lettuce is not straight forward.  First, commercially grown lettuce involves a lot of pesticides.  If you use store purchased lettuce, I recommend organic lettuce with a good soaking in a vegetable cleanser.

I have not found any research on the amounts of lettuce to use in milk.  My suggestion is to start with a minimal amount, just a few leafs.   Step up the amount slowly, a few leaves at a time.  Discuss this with your health care professional and when you find a level that works stick with that minimal amount.  Medicine is dose and less is usually does more.

These three tips can clear away the clouds of a downwards health spiral and help us gain natural good health.  Reduce digestive loads at night, be in bed by 10pm after a cup of boiled milk and lettuce. This makes it possible to sleep deeply at night.  Waking refreshed, feeling better and thinking more clearly starts the day with optimism that can be a foundation for better health and greater wealth.

How the Hogberry Helps With COVID-19

Gain Amazing Health Benefits with the Hogberry

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Part of the answer is toxicity.

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

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

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

Burn Fat to Burn Toxins

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

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

The Key is in the Hogberry

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

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

These three reports are about:

#1: Nutrition

#2: Purification

#3: Exercise

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

shaman

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

#2: Eat combinations of food for ideal digestion.

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

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

quinoa pancakes

One of the recipes is for high protein Chocolate Quinoa Pancakes.

Recipes include:

  • Carrot Cake Quinoa Brownie with Stevia
  • Thermos Quinoa Kichiri
  • High Protein Veggie Almond Savory Cottage Pie
  • Mild Turmeric Curry
  • Low Carb Quinoa Tapioca Crumble
  • Merri’s Blackberry Crumble with Quinoa and Stevia
  • Merri’s Quinoa Strawberry Shortcake
  • Merri’s Quinoa Corn Bread
  • Merri’s Quinoa Corn Bread Dressing
  • Quinoa Risotto With Arugula and Parmesan
  • Timbal of Quinoa topped with Ginger or Parmesan Cheese
  • Quinoa Gazpacho With a Sherbert of Coriander
  • Quinoa Taboleh
  • Mango Quinoa Salad
  • Quinoa Avocado Curry

All of these recipes are in “Sunski” just one of the three natural health reports.

These recipes are easy to make, delicious to eat, inexpensive but balanced and healthy foods prepared in ways that provide nutrition and purification.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

Unlock the Mystery of Key Muscles

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

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

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

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.  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:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(1) news.harvard.edu: Sleep Problems Becoming Risk Factor as Pandemic Continues

 

 

This Epidemic Complicates the Pandemic


One of the worst health epidemics in our civilized world is a little talked about ailment called CD.   CD makes the risks of COVID-19 more likely and worse.

sleep

Insomnia can weaken our immune system and complicate COVID-19

Insomnia is often caused by CD.

This health risk runs the age gamut from school kids to folks who are retired.  Almost everyone is at risk if they are not already affected.

CD is short for the health imbalance created by disruptions in the Circadian cycle called Chronodisruption or (CD).

CD is a precursor to numerous diseases including; diabetes, heart disease and some cancers.  CD leads to poor cognitive function, mood disorders, sleep disorders, obesity, morning droops,  daytime sleepiness, reduced school performance, reduced driving reaction time and is known to lead to substance abuse.

An article at webmd.com “Can Better Sleep Mean Catching Fewer Colds? (1)” highlights the problem.

The article says: It turns out that lack of sleep really may make us more prone to catching colds and the flu. And that includes the H1N1 virus.

“A lot of studies show our T-cells go down if we are sleep deprived,” Balachandran says. “And inflammatory cytokines go up. … This could potentially lead to the greater risk of developing a cold or flu.”

In simple terms, sleep deprivation suppresses immune system function. Or, as Balachandran puts it, “The more all-nighters you pull, the more likely you are to decrease your body’s ability to respond to colds or bacterial infections.”

Fortunately CD has a free and easy cure.

We learned a lot about CD when we lived in Ecuador because there is almost no seasonal deviation in the length of daylight.  The sun rises at 6am and sets at 6pm.  This makes it far easier to maintain a smooth Circadian cycle.

We found that when the sun set at 6pm we were beginning to feel more relaxed and were often asleep by 8pm.  Likewise as the horizon lightened, even before dawn, we were awakening at about 4am.  This routine of sleep from 8 or 9 pm till 4 or 5pm left us feeling energized and we have maintained this routine over the decades since.   That lifestyle and routine was eradicating CD.

CD is caused by a melatonin imbalance in our natural health cycle.  Melatonin is considered the sleep hormone that is linked intimately to the light/dark cycles.  When melatonin rises, the body prepares for rest and we get sleepy.  When melatonin falls, we are energized and the body prepares for activity.

Research has shown that people who have CD start to have rising melatonin levels about 2 hours after waking up.  This is a time when melatonin levels should have dropped.  Yet with CD they start to rise again.  This leads to mid-morning droop and poor performance at work, while driving and even at play.   This explains the need for a morning coffee break and shows how we are forced to be active at a time when the body is geared up to sleep.

This continual forcing of the body to do what it is not prepared for can create all types of dangerous health imbalances such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer as well as a weakened immune system

A trial published in Sleep Medicine fund that subjects were able to adjust their sleep cycles by up to two hours in three weeks.  Each day they got up earlier than usual, had breakfast, took in as much uch outdoor morning light, ae lunch at the same time, avoided caffeine and napping from late afternoon, ate dinner before 7pm and limited light in the evening and went to bed early.  The subjects reported performing better, feeling less sleepy, less stressed and less depressed.

Our studies of many health routines around the world show that in general it is believed that every day consists of two, four hour intervals.  We could call them air, water and fire cycles.

2am to 6am:  Air Cycle. This is time to wake up. The mind is light, active and this is a good time to think, multi task and learn.

6am to 10am: Water Cycle. Strength is increased. This is a good time to do physical activity and exercise.

10am to 2pm: Fire Cycle. This is the time for digestion. High noon is the best time for the main meal of the day.

2pm to 6pm:   Air Cycle. The mind is light and active again. Study and do mental work.

6pm to 10pm: Water Cycle. If you eat a heavy evening meal, this cycle will digest it. However, if your evening meal is early and light, this second fire cycle acts like an oven cleaner and burns up stresses and toxicities gained during the day.

10pm to 2am: Fire Cycle. Best time for deepest sleep.

We and everything around us are systems composed of cycles.  When our cycles are in tune with the Circadian cycle… we live in a more comfortable… lowest stress… most efficient, energetic and longer way.

Electric lights and late nights, plus the internet and TV, especially the 10pm or 11pm news are the nemesis of a healthy Circadian cycle.

Early to bed, early to rise.  Makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.

Try it and you’ll feel better and be healthier as well.

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

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

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

Unlock the Mystery of Key Muscles

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

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

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

Here is what others have said about this information:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

When you order the three shamanic health reports that normally sell for $19.95 each, you save $19.95 plus get the report on the Hogberry free.

Rewire Your Brain


Learning rewires the brain and makes us better, smarter, healthier.

Plus we learn as we sleep.

pixabay

A healthy part of the learning process.

An article at sciencenewsfor students.com, “Learning rewires our brain” (1), helps understand the special value of learning and sleep.

The article says (bolds are mine) : As teachers, coaches and parents everywhere like to say: Practice makes perfect.

Doing something over and over again doesn’t just make it easier. It actually changes the brain.

As we learn something new, cells that send and receive information about the task become more and more efficient. It takes less effort for them to signal the next cell about what’s going on. In a sense, the neurons become wired together.

Learning while you slumber

The brain doesn’t shut down overnight. In fact, catching some zzz’s can dramatically improve learning. That’s because as we sleep, our brains store memories and new information from the previous day. So a poor night’s sleep can hurt our ability to remember new things. Until recently, however, researchers didn’t know why.

The article points out that the brain fires as we sleep, but doesn’t fire normally.  The brains electrical signals at night fire near the middle of an axon, then travel back in the direction of the cell body. In other words, the cells fire in reverse.

This boosts learning. It makes connections between cells stronger and helps wire the cells together .  Cells involved in learning new information are most likely to fire in reverse during sleep so the next day, they will be wired more tightly to each other.

How to sleep better.

While the world focuses on the Coronavirus pandemic, one of the worst health epidemics in our civilized world is a little talked about ailment of being out of sync or disconnected from the circadian rhythms. This dis-ease is called Chronodisruption (CD).

CD probably kills way more than COVID-19 as it’s a precursor to numerous diseases including; diabetes, heart disease and some cancers.  CD leads to poor cognitive function, mood disorders, sleep disorders, obesity, morning droops,  daytime sleepiness, reduced school performance, reduced driving reaction time and is known to lead to substance abuse.

Fortunately CD has a free and easy cure… getting tuned with nature’s circadian cycles.

Our bodies are naturally attuned to the sun and moves in three cycles of four hour intervals. The cycles can be called air, water and fire cycles.  Here’s the natural rhythm.

2am to 6am:  Air Cycle. This is time to wake up. The mind is light, active and this is a good time to think, multi task and learn.

6am to 10am: Water Cycle. Strength is increased. This is a good time to do physical activity and exercise.

10am to 2pm: Fire Cycle. This is the time for digestion. High noon is the best time for the main meal of the day.

2pm to 6pm:   Air Cycle. The mind is light and active again. Study and do mental work.

6pm to 10pm: Water Cycle. If you eat a heavy evening meal, this cycle will digest it. However, if your evening meal is early and light, this second fire cycle acts like an oven cleaner and burns up stresses and toxicities gained during the day.

10pm to 2am: Fire Cycle. Best time for deepest sleep.

We and everything around us are systems composed of cycles.  When our cycles are in tune with the circadian cycle… we live in a more comfortable… lowest stress… most efficient, energetic and longer way.

Electric lights and late nights, plus the internet and TV, especially the 10pm or 11pm news are the nemesis of a healthy Circadian cycle.

It’s easier to reset your circadian clock while staying at home!

The stay at home routine allows more control over when we wake, exercise eat and sleep.

To rest your cycle, turn off the Wi-Fi after supper. Stop using your cell phone.  Turn off or dim all the lights and use candles or battery powered candles for evening light.

Get outside for a bike, walk or swim, as early as you can in the morning, ideally to watch the sunrise.   Go to bed before ten pm or at your first sign of sleepiness. Get up in the morning before six am.

After six pm, avoid phones, televisions and computers. Go to bed reading a book by candlelight.

CD is one of the most prevalent epidemics in our modern world.  Fortunately, the reset that eliminates CD is easy.  A change in our rhythms can remove the ailment completely with a cure that’s so simple it has been taught to us in a rhyme:

Early to bed, early to rise.  Makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.

Try it and you’ll feel better and be healthier as well.

We use “deeper-than-sleep” sessions in our Super Spanish online course.

Over fifty years ago I started a business that has helped hundreds of thousands of subscribers learn about investing in Hong Kong (1960s and 1970s), Switzerland, London, Isle of Man (1970s and 1980s) and across Europe. My wife Merri and I took thousands on investing tours to these countries.

In the 1990s we began taking investors to Panama, Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Ecuador.  That’s when we realized an incredible need for an easy, super fast way to learn Spanish.  Our delegates were business people with hard schedules and tight deadlines.  They did not have months, or even weeks to learn a second language.

Plus, even though these delegates were successful international business people, most did not have degrees in grammar.  When it came to sentence structure, punctuation rules, parts of speech, morphology (what the heck is morphology anyway) and especially derivation of verbs, they were at a loss. They wanted good basic ways to communicate in Spanish that worked and sounded eloquent, right now, without having to become educated in grammar.

Fortunately there is a scientific method of learning (called Super Learning) that was created and refined by a Soviet educational master, Georgi Lozanov.   Lozanov transformed the entire Soviet Union’s educational system to such a degree that this third world nation beat the USA into space.

My wife Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside the Soviet Union who were taught this system by Lozanov himself in the early 1970s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for decades so we used it to create a Super Spanish course that has helped thousands of subscribers learn Spanish in three days and less.

This course is now available online.

Does it sound impossible to learn Spanish in three days?  Yes, it is impossible when you try to learn Spanish in the old, traditional way, but the scientific Super Learning method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books creates educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun.   This course works because it is education without stress!

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music to create Relaxed Concentration in the learning process.  At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Soviet educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

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

The second tactic uses 17 unique lessons to provide Spanish fluency in a short time.   Let me prove to you how this tactic works by teaching you hundreds of Spanish words in less than 30 seconds.

Here is the proof.

“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently. 

For example action is accion.

Education-educacion.

Manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”

There you have it.  How long did it take you to read these four sentences? 

Ask yourself.  “How many words do you know that end in ION”.

You now know all these Spanish words that you will never forget.

How long would it have taken you to memorize all those words?  How soon would you have forgotten them?

You will never forget these hundreds of Spanish words… gained in just seconds!

The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.

The third lesson teaches almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

The fourth lesson shows how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds).  This simple lesson leaves a person sounding like a Spanish professor without ever conjugating a verb.

Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything you desire in Spanish.

Lesson six gives valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples the Spanish capacity with three words for “yesterday,” “now” and “tomorrow”.

In an incredibly short time you feel comfortable speaking Spanish.

Plus the system is Impro-Dynamic.  This means your Spanish keeps getting better even though you do not seem to be studying… practicing… or speaking Spanish.

I was amazed by this as I traveled back and forth from the USA to Ecuador.  The longer I was away from Ecuador… the better my Spanish became.  My second language was automatically improving.  The self improving feature comes because you learn to create Spanish sentences rather than remember them.

The create portion of the brain is more powerful than the part of the brain that recalls.  When your mind creates something… it owns it!  You do not have to remember, as in the case of the ION Spanish words you now know.

During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know.   This eliminates the need to memorize 99% of Spanish words.

You then learn how to create Spanish sentences from these words.

Throughout the course you learn how to pronounce the sentences you create.

When the course ends… the mind keeps working… and creating… so next time you begin to speak Spanish you’ll be surprised .  You improve even though you have not actively worked on your lingual skill.

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.

The normal three day in person course fee is $499 ($749 for a couple).

The ONLINE course is available at the highly reduced price of $149, but during the pandemic crisis we are knocking another $70 from the price so you can start now for only $79.  

But in an extra special offer, just for today, there is even more.

The most important asset any of us can have during this pandemic is a healthy body and strong immune system!

I was reminded of the need for natural health the when I suffered a two week bout with this viral infection.

gary scott

The symptoms were nasty but fortunately over the past 40 years I have taken MDs, DOs, ODs, DCs, DVMs and DDs as well as physician and nurse practitioners, nurses and numerous other type of health care providers around the world to meet with Andean and Amazonian shamans, yatchacs, Oriental healers, accupuncturists, herbalists, Indian ayurvedic vaidyas, pulse therapists and essential oil practitioners to name a few.

I used what we learned with these healers.  This was of immense help during the weeks I was ill.  That’s why I plan to be wearing this new T-shirt.  What could have been a dangerous disease for a 73 year old male, was closer to an inconvenience.

The knowledge we gleaned in these decades of research and study have been encapsulated in three natural health reports I wrote about:

#1: Nutrition

#2: Purification

#3: Exercise

In this special one day offer, I would like to send you these three reports FREE.

The Super Spanish Course includes meditative techniques that can help your immune system, but I want you to have more, available in the three Natural Health Reports which at $19.95 each normally cost $59.85.

Today when you order the Super Spanish Course, I’ll send these three reports FREE.

Our Super Spanish Course course is available at the highly reduced price of $149, but during the COVID-19 crisis we are knocking another $70 from the price so you can start now for only $79.

In this special offer if you order the Super Spanish course today, I will also send you these three Natural Health Reports, that reveal secrets of health and longevity at no additional cost.

The ONLINE Super Spanish course has our, full satisfaction or money back, guarantee.  Try Super Spanish for 60 days.  If not fully satisfied, simply let us know for a full refund…. but keep the three reports as our thanks for giving the course a try. 

Order Super Spanish Online for $79 and get the three Natural Health Reports included. Save $129.85 n this special one day offer.

Here are some testimonials from the Super Spanish course.

Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.

One delegate from St. Louis wrote:  Hi Gary,  Just ended forty-five years in dentistry last week, and I’m on to a new career.  What is my new career?  Still formulating, but the eye -opening,mind expanding Super-Spanish course last weekend in St. Louis surely shows me the opportunity exists to expand my horizons.

Besides having a lot of nice people to learn our new language; the methods Merri and you developed proved to be just what you said they would be.  We all and I in particular relaxed our way to new learning.  I feel so very comfortable with the basis of my new language skills that I know I will be spitting out great Spanish sentences by the time I reach Ecuador in October.  Last year I spent six weeks in Ecuador and now I plan on conversing with the people.

Today’s excerpt of your newsletter really hit home. You do what you say you will. There are no surprises or hidden sales tricks. The only tricks are beneficial to our learning.  Thank you for a wonderful experience that I was quite unable to grasp how you would pull it off.  You did, however, and I look forward to other courses that you offer, and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially.  Best regards, Denis Molloy.

Another wrote about the Super Spanish course:   Buenos Dias, here is a testimonial for Super Thinking-Super Spanish.  Please feel free to use all or part in promotions for the course.  In addition, you may give my email address to any prospect “on the fence” about enrolling.  Yesterday, in Cotacachi, Ecuador, I finished Super Spanish.  I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.

After three days, I can speak Spanish in complete sentences. In simple conversations, such as buying groceries or ordering a meal, I can make myself understood. I think that’s incredible!

Although I am far from the competence level of a native speaker, I feel I’ve taken a giant step forward in learning Spanish so that I can experience the people and culture of Ecuador.  The foregoing benefits would have more than justified the time and money I invested in Super Spanish.  And learning some Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course.

Prior to leaving the USA, I had felt for some time that the pace of life there was unhealthy for me (and for most people) and I did nothing about it.

I’ve thought about the pace issue during the course.  One of the key elements Merri Scott designed into Super Spanish is placing the student in the optimal state for learning.  In class, the past three days, I’ve been re-introduced to guided journeys and introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music (www.sundaybaroque.org).  What a blessing! I’m inclined to make one or both a daily part of my life.   Rob Christi.  Cotacachi, Ecuador

Another attendee from a course wrote:   “I took this incredible class a few weeks ago, and I would like to tell anyone that is interested, that it is an amazing three days of learning with lots of laughs included. You leave everyday wanting to learn more and are so excited to do so.

“Other Spanish classes and tutoring made us feel like it would take forever to get to the point where we could put it into practice, but this method gave us a more fluent use for everyday life almost immediately AND the confidence to use it.  It is a fantastic way to show people how much they know and give confidence to learn and use Spanish creating a momentum.

“They made learning Spanish easy and fun in a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.  I would definitely recommend this course.  Even if you know some Spanish, this helps make it easier because of the less stress that no verb conjugations gives you.  This gives you more confidence in yourself to try and speak it more.

“I liked how simply the course was organized and the positive attitude about learning.  Thank you so much for helping me to learn Spanish!” Nadine Taylor

Still not sure?

Take just ten minutes to let me prove to you that this super fast way to gain the basics can let you can communicate in Spanish in an incredibly short time.

Lettuce Lets Us Sleep!


We can use lettuce to let us sleep!

Lettuce can be a super health food, that helps us be more mentally alert and longer lived, but not in the normal, direct, eating way.

Merri and I find that growing our own organic lettuce is fulfilling and fun and brings a huge bonus.

In Florida, during the autumn and winter we grow lettuce in our greenhouse.

Spring and summer, we plant lettuce in all types of nooks and crannies around our North Carolina home.

IMG_0768

I explain below how lettuce helps longevity in an indirect way

An article at Smithsonian.com “Nearly One-Third of Americans Sleep Fewer Than Six Hours Per Night” (1) reviews a survey that reflects a worrying trend of national sleep deprivation,

The article says: The number of Americans sleeping six hours or fewer each night is on the rise. According to a new survey of nearly 400,000 individuals’ sleep patterns, 32.9 percent of respondents self-reported a poverty of zzz’s.

The findings, published in the journal Sleep, reflect a worrying trend of national sleep deprivation.

“Poor sleep is a canary in the coal mine,” Ailshire tells USC News’ Jenesse Miller. “We will see worse health outcomes as a result.”

Per the National Sleep Foundation, adults aged 18 to 64 should sleep between seven to nine hours per night. Adults over 65 can skim off an hour, enjoying a recommended seven to eight hours of sleep. But many Americans regularly fail to meet this quota, leaving them vulnerable to short-term consequences such as an inability to concentrate, mood swings and issues with memory. On a day-to-day basis, a lack of sleep can also raise the likelihood of getting into an accident or engaging in conflicts at work and at home. Over time, the built-up effects of sleep deprivation may lead to weight gain, a weakened immune system that increases the risk of developing diabetes and heart conditions, and even dementia.

Now the sleep problem is growing worse for the next year!

a recent study published in the Journal of Community Health.

A recent USA Today article “Majority of Americans say 2020 election is ‘significant source of stress,’ according to new survey” (2) shows how the next year will make it even harder to sleep.

The article says: According to the annual “Stress in America” survey from the American Psychological Association, 56% of U.S. adults identified 2020 as a “significant” stressor.

That is an increase from the contentious 2016 matchup, when respondents were asked the same question just three months before the election, and 52% of adults reported that the presidential election was incredibly stressful.

About one-third of Americans are sleeping less than seven hours a night – and some of the people most affected could be the ones responsible for your safety.

Among working American adults, health and safety professionals reported the highest rates of insufficient sleep (seven hours or less), according to

Among Americans working in protective service and military, about half reported short sleep in 2018, followed by 45% in health care support occupations.

For medical professionals, exhaustion could mean disaster: A 2011 study in the Canadian Medical Association Journal found that lack of sleep can result in higher rates of surgical complications if a surgeon had less than six hours of sleep the preceding night.

So how much sleep are adults supposed to get? At least seven hours, according to the National Sleep Foundation.

“Less than that, you’re clearly posing a risk to your body for future chronic diseases,” Khubchandani said. “There’s a myth in society that Tom Cruise sleeps five hours and Jeff Bezos wakes up at 3 a.m., but you’re never going to know what happens to them in the long term.”

Lettuce is part of three simple steps can help us sleep better so we’ll live longer and think more clearly.

#1: Reduce digestive overload at night.   Everything that our senses process is a form of digestion.  Eat lightly in the evening. Turn off the news and violent or negative emotion inducing shows. Put down stimulating books before going to sleep.

#2: Go to bed before 10pm.  The body has natural rhythms connected to the sun.  Sleep is most natural from 9pm to 5am.

#3: Drink warm milk with lettuce.  Researchers have found that when bioactive peptides in milk are taken before bed, the improvements in sleep are remarkable:

  • Promotes deeper sleep
  • Supports more restorative sleep
  • Induces relaxation at the level needed for sleep
  • Supports anxiety that disturbs sleep
  • Improves numerous stress markers

Even better, drink the raw milk that does not have added hormones, chemicals and antibiotics.  Unnecessary homogenization and the wrong type of pasteurization also reduce the benefits of milk.  An alternative to raw milk when it is not available is non-homogenized, vat pasteurized, chemical, antibiotic and hormone-free milk.  This is available in many health oriented grocery stores.

Why cook with lettuce?

This tip was given to me by an Andean yatchak who rarely explained why, but a bit of research provided an explanation about how lettuce can bring sleep.  Lettuce contains an opium-like substance called lactucin that has sedative and analgesic properties.  Lactucin has been called “Lettuce opium”.  It is a latex, lactucarium and physically resembles opium as a white fluid and can be reduced to a thick solid.  The Egyptians refined it.  Refined lettuce opium was sold as a drug in the United States in the 1800s.

Lettuce cooked in milk creates a one-two knock out punch of the bioactive peptides and lactucin.

Like milk, lettuce is not straight forward.  First, commercially grown lettuce involves a lot of pesticides.  If you use store purchased lettuce, I recommend organic lettuce with a good soaking in a vegetable cleanser such Purely Green as explained in “Food Purification With Purely Green Clean”.

I have not found any research on the amounts of lettuce to use in milk.  My suggestion is to start with a minimal amount, just a few leafs.   Step up the amount slowly, a few leaves at a time.  Discuss this with your health care professional and when you find a level that works stick with that minimal amount.  Medicine is dose and less is usually does more.

These three tips can clear away the clouds of a downwards health spiral and help us gain natural good health.  Reduce digestive loads at night, be in bed by 10pm after a cup of boiled milk and lettuce. This makes it possible to sleep deeply at night.  Waking refreshed, feeling better and thinking more clearly makes one more optimism and that optimism can be a foundation for better health and greater wealth.

Sleep improves learning and learning also increases longevity.  This is why the sleep enhancer exercise included in our Super Spanish course, so the course offers more benefits than just a second language.

Learn Spanish in Three Days ONLINE

Instant $110 discount on the course!

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

Read below to see why we are offering our Super Spanish course online for the first time.

Speaking Spanish is a huge benefit on its own.  You can become one of the rare North Americans who can get along in Spanish speaking countries.  You can be one of the special people who can communicate with 10 million non-English speakers in the USA.  Spanish is the second most used language in the USA.  There are more Spanish speakers than speakers of Chinese, French, German, Italian, Hawaiian, and the Native American languages combined.  According to the Census Bureau, Spanish is the primary language of nearly 50 million people in the US.  This is the largest Spanish-speaking community outside of Mexico. Only half of these speakers also speak English “very well,” and 19% do not speak Spanish at all.

You can tap into all this potential when you speak Spanish.  Yet there are more benefits.

An article in England’s leading newspaper, the Telegraph, entitled “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism” (1) sum up the biggest benefit of learning a second language and increased intelligence.  The article says: “Learning a foreign language is more than just a boost to your CV or handy for traveling.  It will make you smarter, more decisive and even better at English.  Physiological studies have found that speaking two or more languages is a great asset to the cognitive process.  The brains of bilingual people operate differently than single language speakers, and these differences offer several mental benefits.”

The article then explains studies that show seven cognitive advantages gained from learning a foreign language.

#1:  You become smarter
#2:  You build multitasking skills
#3:  You stave off Alzheimer’s and dementia
#4:  Your memory improves
#5:  You become more perceptive
#6:  Your decision-making skills improve
#7:  You improve your English

Does it sound impossible to learn Spanish in three days?  Yes, it is impossible when you try to learn Spanish in the old, traditional way.

Though you may choose to take more time using this course to learn Spanish, thousands of our readers have learned at our Spanish courses.

There is a scientific method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books that create educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun.   This course works because it is education without stress!

This method was created and refined by the Bulgarian educational master, Georgi Lozanov, who transformed the entire Soviet educational system to such a degree that this third world country beat the USA into space.

Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside of Bulgaria who were allowed to be taught this system in the early 70s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for  four decades. It was a delight!

Merri and I began integrating these techniques with other shamanic and educational tactics we had gained in our global travels and then applied them to teach Spanish in three days.

The course has been proven again and again by the thousands who have used this system.  You can read a few of the many raves we have received from delegates who have learned from the Super Thinking Spanish course we created.

Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.

One delegate from St. Louis wrote:  Hi Gary,  Just ended forty-five years in dentistry last week, and I’m on to a new career.  What is my new career?  Still formulating, but the eye -opening,mind expanding Super-Spanish course last weekend in St. Louis surely shows me the opportunity exists to expand my horizons.

Besides having a lot of nice people to learn our new language; the methods Merri and you developed proved to be just what you said they would be.  We all and I in particular relaxed our way to new learning.  I feel so very comfortable with the basis of my new language skills that I know I will be spitting out great Spanish sentences by the time I reach Ecuador in October.  Last year I spent six weeks in Ecuador and now I plan on conversing with the people.

Today’s excerpt of your newsletter really hit home. You do what you say you will. There are no surprises or hidden sales tricks. The only tricks are beneficial to our learning.  Thank you for a wonderful experience that I was quite unable to grasp how you would pull it off.  You did, however, and I look forward to other courses that you offer, and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially.  Best regards, Denis Molloy.

Another wrote about the Super Spanish course:   Buenos Dias, here is a testimonial for Super Thinking-Super Spanish.  Please feel free to use all or part in promotions for the course.  In addition, you may give my email address to any prospect “on the fence” about enrolling.  Yesterday, in Cotacachi, Ecuador, I finished Super Spanish.  I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.

After three days, I can speak Spanish in complete sentences. In simple conversations, such as buying groceries or ordering a meal, I can make myself understood. I think that’s incredible!

Although I am far from the competence level of a native speaker, I feel I’ve taken a giant step forward in learning Spanish so that I can experience the people and culture of Ecuador.  The foregoing benefits would have more than justified the time and money I invested in Super Spanish.  And learning some Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course.

Prior to leaving the USA, I had felt for some time that the pace of life there was unhealthy for me (and for most people) and I did nothing about it.

I’ve thought about the pace issue during the course.  One of the key elements Merri Scott designed into Super Spanish is placing the student in the optimal state for learning.  In class, the past three days, I’ve been re-introduced to guided journeys and introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music (www.sundaybaroque.org).  What a blessing! I’m inclined to make one or both a daily part of my life.   Rob Christi.  Cotacachi, Ecuador

Another attendee from a course wrote:   “I took this incredible class a few weeks ago, and I would like to tell anyone that is interested, that it is an amazing three days of learning with lots of laughs included. You leave everyday wanting to learn more and are so excited to do so.

“Other Spanish classes and tutoring made us feel like it would take forever to get to the point where we could put it into practice, but this method gave us a more fluent use for everyday life almost immediately AND the confidence to use it.  It is a fantastic way to show people how much they know and give confidence to learn and use Spanish creating a momentum.

“They made learning Spanish easy and fun in a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.  I would definitely recommend this course.  Even if you know some Spanish, this helps make it easier because of the less stress that no verb conjugations gives you.  This gives you more confidence in yourself to try and speak it more.

 “The stress free atmosphere and tons of interaction and participation were very conducive to learning.  The relaxation techniques alone are worth the price.  The fact that I can now feel more comfortable conversing in Spanish with my new friends and neighbors is priceless.  Muchas, muchas gracias.”

“I loved the relaxed environment.  I picked up quite a lot of new vocabulary.  I found this course very informative about how the language works, how I can make sentences and understand others better!  Muchas Gracias!  I had a call from Telcel (the local phone company) after our second class and I was able to speak and understand them for the first time. Despacio (meaning slowly) … a great word!  Everyone should take this course before they pick up bad habits.”

“I liked how simply the course was organized and the positive attitude about learning.  Thank you so much for helping me to learn Spanish!”

“I liked the laid back yet professional approach.  I highly recommend this new, relaxing method of learning Spanish,  I feel a lot more confident in the delivery of my words and sentences. It was taught in an excellent and very professional way.

“It was a very enjoyable class.”

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music in the learning process.  At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  Merri Scott was among just a few who learned directly from Lozanov.

The second tactic uses 17 unique lessons to provide Spanish fluency in a short time.   Let me prove to you how this tactic works by teaching you hundreds of Spanish words in less than 30 seconds.

Here is the proof.

“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently.  For example action is accion, education-educacion, manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”

There you have it.  How long did it take you to read the sentence?  You now know hundreds of Spanish words that you will never forget.

See examples of the words you already know below.

How long would have taken you to memorize all those words?  How soon would you have forgotten them?

This is just one of seventeen Spanish lessons in the course.

The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.

Then, the third lesson teaches almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

The fourth lesson shows how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds).  This simple lesson leaves a person sounding like a Spanish professor without ever conjugating a verb.

Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything desired in Spanish.

Lesson six gives valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples the Spanish capacity with three words for “yesterday,” “now” and “tomorrow”.

By the end of three days you feel comfortable speaking Spanish.

Plus the system is Impro-Dynamic.  This means your Spanish keeps getting better even though you do not seem to be studying… practicing… or speaking Spanish.

I was amazed by this as I traveled back and forth from the USA to Ecuador.  The longer I was away from Ecuador… the better my Spanish became.  My second language was automatically improving The self improving feature comes because you learn to create Spanish sentences rather than remember them.  The portion of the brain that creates is more powerful than the portion that recalls.  When your mind creates something… it owns it!  You do not have to remember .

During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know .  

You then learn how to create Spanish sentences from these words.

Throughout the course you learn how to pronounce the sentences you create.

When the course ends… the mind keeps working… and creating… so next time you begin to speak Spanish you’ll be surprised .  You improve even though you have not actively worked on your lingual skill.

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.  Normally $149, this is available at the highly reduced price of $79. Simply use coupon code SPANISH110 at checkout.

I’ll be in touch personally via email with each person who signs up for this course to see how it works or what is required to make it better.  Once this test is complete, we plan to offer the program on a larger scale and at a much higher price.

Here are more testimonials from previous Super Spanish Courses.

Maggie wrote: It didn’t really seem possible that we would be speaking and understanding Spanish in only 3 days but the course made it happen in a very supportive learning environment.  I would highly recommend this course for anyone wishing to learn “practical Spanish”.  The teaching methods, use of relaxation, the use of native Spanish speakers for pronunciation and the teachers themselves who were approachable and helpful and always positive made this a very valuable class.

This course improved my self confidence in my ability to learn and retain a language.  It was presented with genuine enthusiasm, great energy and the style of learning is very effective. Gracias!  It was a great experience.

Nadine wrote: “Just spent the last 3 days in the most wonderful learning environment learning Spanish.  What an amazing learning experience!!  First day out of class and I could not stop thinking in Spanish WOW!!  I am amazed by how much I learned, retained and how much more is showing up now that I am out of class.  And the best part is THERE WAS NO STUDYING!! Indeed this is Super Thinking!!!  I would highly recommend this to anyone that has ever had a desire to learn another language or learn anything in record time.

And a few days after that ….  As I went through my day, just hanging out with my son, I could see myself starting to think in Spanish.  At first I thought it was amusing but as it continued and increased I thought “My goodness this is really remarkable amazing” It was really an effortless unfolding.  I wasn’t at any point “trying” to think in Spanish, just words I knew would fly across the screen in my mind.  And then this afternoon, my son cuddled up on the couch to watch some cartoons on his ipad and was watching Peppa Pig in Spanish…hmm coincidence?  I think not, I’m radiating Spanish so much that my son is being influenced!  Thanks a million again.  This weekend the best learning experience of my life!!

If you have ever had a desire to learn Spanish this is the way to do it!  By the end of the first day I had more confidence and more practical ability than I had from any previous courses I had taken.  It was fun and relaxed and full of laughter.  You will leave this class excited to use what you have learned.  Rather than leaving overwhelmed with how much you have yet to learn and master, you are equipped with the knowledge and know how to go out and communicate as well as the excitement to do it!”

Gary noted:  “The whole approach is positive and conducive to learning at a level that benefits ALL participants.  It is not intimidating and does not set up a pass/fail atmosphere.  The presenters are terrific and the results unbelievable.  It was relaxed, informal, friendly and effective.”

Twila said:  “This class provided a very refreshing and relaxed way of learning.  The atmosphere felt very safe to say the words you were practicing.  I learned a lot in a way that will make it easy to apply.  Starting with conversation is way more fun.  How quickly you can learn!  It was a great group, great instructors and great stories.

The atmosphere in the classroom was so relaxed that learning Spanish felt like a breeze and not like a painful task.  The relaxation exercises are really conducive to language learning.  We learned A LOT in a short time and it was fun and the environment was non-threatening.”

Brigitte sent this:  “Buenos Dias, Suzanne. su clase de espanol es excelente! Muchas Gracias!  
I have already done what you suggested and went into the program listening to the music and going over the lessons.  I know: Repetition……reinforcement…..thinking in the new language….it’s all part of it.  I loved your course and will certainly recommend it to friends.  Who knows….I might feel the urge and have the opportunity to repeat it at your beautiful place in Puerto Aventuras…..Quien sabe? Hasta otro dia y saludos a su familia.”

Marie wrote:  “I would highly recommend this course.  The amount covered in 3 days is amazing!  All with no stress.  The correlation lessons and pronunciation practice has greatly reduced my anxiety to go out and use my Spanish.  I really enjoyed the whole process and thank you for the take away tools.”

Ashwagandha for Stress, and Sleep


Ashwagandha is good for relieving anxiety, stress, and enhancing sleep.

John Douillard’s Lifespa.com says that a report in the Alternative Medicine Review, shows an estimated 75-90 percent of primary care visits may be related to stress.

The article says: Stress has been linked to a host of health concerns involving immunity, cardiovascular system, sleep, mood, bone, brain and cognitive function, breathing, muscle tension, circulation, fatigue, metabolic concerns such as blood sugar and hormonal issues, and more.

This article is timely as it looks at how to mitigate stress, particularly in the winter and thus eliminate stress’s impact on the immune system that can be “the first domino,” in a breakdown in health.

The article says:  The skin, sinuses, gut and respiratory tracts can dry out, altering the inner and outer skin’s natural environment that supports immune-boosting, beneficial bacteria.

Enter Ashwagandha

One of the world’s most well-studied, stress-fighting adaptogen, ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), is harvested during the fall.

The root of this plant has been used for thousands of years in Ayurveda. It was added to soups and stews to support healthy immune function and fight stress.

The link between stress and healthy sleep has been well-established. Stress overstimulates the hypothalamic-pituitary axis (HPA) causing stress hormones, like cortisol, to stay elevated into the evening, postponing sleep.

In one study, ashwagandha was administered to stressed adults for 60 days. The subjects reported significantly less stress based on a stress assessment scale along with less stress hormone (cortisol) production.

Ashwagandha supports a healthy immune function, boosts white blood cell count, increases lymphocytes and supports

Merri and I take ashwaganda daily, and make this discipline especially important in the autumn and winter.

For extra health insurance, consider the benefits of fall harvested ashwaganda as an immune-supportive, winter herb.

How the Hogberry Helps With COVID-19

Gain Amazing Health Benefits with the Hogberry

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Part of the answer is toxicity.

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

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

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

Burn Fat to Burn Toxins

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

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

The Key is in the Hogberry

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

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

These three reports are about:

#1: Nutrition

#2: Purification

#3: Exercise

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

shaman

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

#2: Eat combinations of food for ideal digestion.

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

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

quinoa pancakes

One of the recipes is for high protein Chocolate Quinoa Pancakes.

Recipes include:

  • Carrot Cake Quinoa Brownie with Stevia
  • Thermos Quinoa Kichiri

All of these recipes are in “Sunski” just one of the three natural health reports.

These recipes are easy to make, delicious to eat, inexpensive but balanced and healthy foods prepared in ways that provide nutrition and purification.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

Unlock the Mystery of Key Muscles

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

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

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

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.

Here is what others have said about this information:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

When Merri and I lived in Ecuador, one, small indigenous village we helped, built a small hut for us to live and sleep in when we visited.

shaman sleep

The interior was small and simple, except the bed which had an enormous head board and foot board made from a beautiful piece of woodroot.

shaman sleep

The village shaman said:  “This bed was a gift of sleep… one of the most important elements of good health.”  The shaman said that this was sacred wood with “a special vibration… (pronounced vee-bra-see-own) that assisted good sleep”.

I never understood why that wood helped.

I might have preferred a better, sacred mattress, but we did sleep well there.  Perhaps the hiking up and down steep slopes, the great food, the fresh air and the peace of mind that comes from knowing someone cares enough to make a special welcome.  Or perhaps it was the wood.

Whatever, one fact that modern science as well as ancient healing traditions make clear.  Sleeping helps us to be and remain smarter.

For example, an article at webmd.com “How Sleep Helps Memory and Learning” (1) looks at research on how and why the brain memorizes and stores new skills during sleep.

A study at Boston’s Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital found that memory and learning improved with sleep. The findings appeared in “Neuroscience”  The researchers used a brain imaging scan while the subjects were tested. The scans showed different brain-activity patterns after sleep.

The article says: Take the lower part of the brain, for instance. One of its jobs includes controlling speed and accuracy. This brain region was “clearly more active when the subjects had had a night of sleep,” says Walker in a news release.

Not so for the more central parts of the brain. These systems are involved in stress and emotions like anxiety. These regions were less active after sleep, say the researchers.

Learning in Your Sleep

Matthew Walker, PhD. directs the Sleep and Neuroimaging Laboratory at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital. Walker is also an assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

“The MRI scans are showing us that brain regions shift dramatically during sleep,” says Walker.

“When you’re asleep, it seems as though you are shifting memory to more efficient storage regions within the brain,” he says.

“Consequently, when you awaken, memory tasks can be performed both more quickly and accurately, and with less stress and anxiety.

Good nutrition, adequate exercise and purification are the roots of good, natural health.  These three habits enhance good sleep and together make and keep us smarter, more alive and filled with energy.

Use sound to sleep better.  12 minutes of hearing certain types of music can refresh the mind like hours of sleep.

Be Smarter With Less Stress

Join the top 3 percent of intelligent people in the world.

Become more independent and relaxed by becoming smarter.

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

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

Delegates at a Super Thinking course relaxing in their secret rose garden.

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

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

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

Inflate Your IQ.

When it comes to money… inflation is cheating.

That’s bad for you.

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

Monetary inflation is a sneaky government and business trick.

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

They promise you more.

Liars?

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

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

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

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

Gain more than IQ.

Be smarter… more energetic…. healthier… more relaxed.

That’s the way to get ahead!

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

You can improve your IQ in just weeks.

You might well ask… How is this possible?

Here’s how the scientists say it is possible.

A Wall Street Journal article entitled “Ways to Inflate Your IQ”(1)  show how you can be smarter and actually add matter to your brainThe article says:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Improve the brain through music… without lessons.

Here’s the Super Thinking story…

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

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

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

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

Proof?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Share our years of experience.

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

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

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

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

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

Another attendee to the Super Thinking Workshop sent this note.

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

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

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

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

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

You can order the online Super Thinking Workshop here ($49.95)

Relax in the Secret Rose Garden.

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

Part two is a longer portion on theory.

Part one is enough.

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

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

You might ask…”Will it work for me”?

The Super Thinking Workshop will help increase your IQ.

Our guarantee.

I guarantee it.  Order the Super Thinking Workshop.  Use it for two months.  If you are not totally satisfied… in any way, during that time, simply let me know and I’ll send a full refund… immediately… no questions asked.

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

Inflation is a cheat… a crime when it comes to money.  Inflating your IQ to beat inflation is simple good sense.  Learn Super Thinking now with no risk.  Begin to increase your intelligence today.

Lettuce & Longevity


Lettuce can help us live longer and better with clarity and a better brain.

Lettuce can be a super health food, that helps us be more mentally alert and longer lived, but not in the normal, direct, eating way.

I explain below.

Merri and I find that growing our own organic lettuce is fulfilling and fun.

In Florida, during the autumn and winter we grow lettuce in our greenhouse.

gary scott greenhouse

Spring and summer, we plant lettuce in all types of nooks and crannies around our North Carolina home.

IMG_0768

Here is how lettuce helps longevity in an indirect way.

This lettuce is part of three simple steps can help us live longer and think more clearly.

#1: Reduce digestive overload at night.   Everything that our senses process is a form of digestion.  Eat lightly in the evening. Turn off the news and violent or negative emotion inducing shows. Put down stimulating books before going to sleep.

#2: Go to bed before 10pm.  The body has natural rhythms connected to the sun.  Sleep is most natural from 9pm to 5am.

#3: Drink warm milk with lettuce.  Researchers have found that when bioactive peptides in milk are taken before bed, the improvements in sleep are remarkable: (1)

  • Promotes deeper sleep
  • Supports more restorative sleep
  • Induces relaxation at the level needed for sleep
  • Supports anxiety that disturbs sleep
  • Improves numerous stress markers

Even better, drink the raw milk that does not have added hormones, chemicals and antibiotics.  Unnecessary homogenization and the wrong type of pasteurization also reduce the benefits of milk.  An alternative to raw milk when it is not available is non-homogenized, vat pasteurized, chemical, antibiotic and hormone-free milk.  This is available in many health oriented grocery stores.

Why cook with lettuce?

This tip was given to me by an Andean yatchak who rarely explained why, but a bit of research provided an explanation about how lettuce can bring sleep.  Lettuce contains an opium-like substance called lactucin that has sedative and analgesic properties.  Lactucin has been called “Lettuce opium”.  It is a latex, lactucarium and physically resembles opium as a white fluid and can be reduced to a thick solid.  The Egyptians refined it.  Refined lettuce opium was sold as a drug in the United States in the 1800s.

Lettuce cooked in milk creates a one-two knock out punch of the bioactive peptides and lactucin.

Like milk, lettuce is not straight forward.  First, commercially grown lettuce involves a lot of pesticides.  If you use store purchased lettuce, I recommend organic lettuce with a good soaking in Purely Green as explained in “Food Purification With Purely Green Clean”.

IMG_0768

Another solution is Wild Lettuce Extract.  Different varieties of lettuce have varied amounts of lactucin.  One plant, Lactuca virosa, often called wild lettuce is in the Lactuca (lettuce) genus and has an especially high concentration.  Wild Lettuce is related to common lettuce and is also called bitter lettuce, laitue vireuse, opium lettuce, poisonous lettuce, tall lettuce, great lettuce or rakutu-karyumu-so.

Amazon.com offers Wild Lettuce Extract.

wild lettuce

One of the extracts is “Hawaii Farm Wild Lettuce Extract” an alcohol free Super concentrated liquid extract of all natural ingredients.  This is an organic, gluten free, non-GMO product made from high quality Wild Lettuce using classic conventional methods of extraction from certified organic, ethically sourced wild harvested raw material.

Because this is a concentrated powerful product, consult with your doctor before taking wild lettuce extract.

Dr. Oz recommended Wild Lettuce for insomnia at his website (2) and added these precautions. Do not use wild lettuce extract if:

  • You are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • You have prostate enlargement (BPH).
  • You have an eye condition called narrow-angle glaucoma.
  • You are allergic to ragweed, marigolds, daisies or related herbs.
  • You are scheduled for surgery in the next two weeks.

Hawaii Farms safety information says:  Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing or taking any medications, consult your doctor before use.  Discontinue use and consult your doctor if any adverse reactions occur.  Excessive consumption may impair ability to drive a motor vehicle or operate heavy equipment.

If you have any concerns about using a concentrated product, stick to boiling lettuce in your milk.

Hawaii Farms suggested use of their Wild Lettuce Extract: Shake well before use. 20-30 drops, three times a day or as directed by your practitioner.

I have not found any research on the amounts of lettuce (or extract) to use in milk.  My suggestion is to start with a minimal amount, just a few drops.  If you step up the amount, progress very slowly, a drop or two at a time.  Discuss this with your health care professional and when you find a level that works stick with that the minimal amount.  Medicine is dose and less is usually does more.

These three tips can clear away the clouds of a downwards health spiral and help us gain natural good health.  Reduce digestive loads at night, be in bed by 10pm after a cup of boiled milk and lettuce. This makes it possible to sleep deeply at night.  Waking refreshed, feeling better and thinking more clearly makes one more optimism and that optimism can be a foundation for better health and greater wealth.

How the Hogberry Helps With COVID-19

Gain Amazing Health Benefits with the Hogberry

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Part of the answer is toxicity.

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

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

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

Burn Fat to Burn Toxins

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

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

The Key is in the Hogberry

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

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

These three reports are about:

#1: Nutrition

#2: Purification

#3: Exercise

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

shaman

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

#2: Eat combinations of food for ideal digestion.

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

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

quinoa pancakes

One of the recipes is for high protein Chocolate Quinoa Pancakes.

Recipes include:

  • Carrot Cake Quinoa Brownie with Stevia
  • Thermos Quinoa Kichiri
  • High Protein Veggie Almond Savory Cottage Pie

All of these recipes are in “Sunski” just one of the three natural health reports.

These recipes are easy to make, delicious to eat, inexpensive but balanced and healthy foods prepared in ways that provide nutrition and purification.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

Unlock the Mystery of Key Muscles

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

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

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

Here is what others have said about this information:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

When you order the three shamanic health reports that normally sell for $19.95 each, you save $19.95 plus get the report on the Hogberry free.

Better Memory and Longevity in Sleep


“The sun always shines somewhere”.  

This positive idea was a main theme in my 1970’s book, “Passport to International Profit” and remains equally true today.

Our lives are driven by forces we often cannot see.  Even if visible they cannot always be understood.  Plus we cannot change most of what what we do understand and see anyway. So we need to be positive.

Positive attitudes help us live longer, with a clearer mind and better memory.  See how and and why below.

smiley face

Guess which one will be smarter for more years?

Optimism is the only practical attitude and is related to longevity.   An 11-year study (1) of more than 2800 men and women between the ages of 56 and 72, found that those who were more pessimistic were 2.2 times more likely to die of heart disease than those who were less pessimistic.

Pessimism increases health risk including stroke, poor arterial health, heart failure and coronary heart disease.

We can live longer and accomplish more when we live a more wholesome, peaceful, optimistic, giving, loving, joyful, calm, nature-based lifestyle,which is the key to a happy heart.

How can we be optimistic when so much bad stuff seems to be going down?  Not surprisingly, the three most effective, least expensive and easiest, solutions that improve our positivity are ones we have heard again and again.

#1: Better nutrition.

#2: More good exercise.

#3: Deeper sleep.

This message shares three simple ideas that help us sleep better.  Chronic lack of sleep can increase the risk of most degenerative diseases and anxiety and depression, cancer, impaired cognitive function metabolic difficulties, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, elevated blood pressure and more.

Today’s stress levels are 24/7, with little end in sight for many folks. Such chronic stress has a direct impact on sleep.  According to a 2001 scientific poll, 38% of Americans received a solid 8 hours of sleep.  In 2009, that number was reduced to just 28%.  Sleep is so important for good health that one study linked getting 7-8 hours of regular sleep each night to a reduction in mortality from all causes.

Lack of sleep creates a negative self reinforcing downward spiral.  Sleep creates higher stress levels and elevated cortisol.  These factors create more stress, which raises cortisol levels higher, which disturbs sleep patterns even more.

Here are three simple steps that can break this spiral.

#1: Reduce digestive overload at night.   Everything that our senses process is a form of digestion.  Eat lighter meals, earlier.  Turn off the news and violent or negative emotion inducing shows.  Put down stimulating books.

#2: Drink warm milk with lettuce.  Researchers have found that when bioactive peptides in milk are taken before bed, the improvements in sleep are remarkable: (2)

#3: Go to bed before 10pm.  The body has natural rhythms connected to the sun.  Sleep is most natural from 9pm to 5am.

Sound sleep encourages a positive attitude and the CBS article “The benefits of a positive attitude toward aging” (3) shows how a positive attitude helps longevity.

“We found that people in the study who had more positive attitudes toward aging were more resilient in response to stress — meaning that there wasn’t a significant increase in negative emotions,” study author Jennifer Bellingtier, a Ph.D. student at North Carolina State University, said in a university news release.

“Meanwhile, study participants with more negative attitudes toward aging showed a sharp increase in negative emotional affect on stressful days,” she added.

The Telegraph article “Positive attitude also reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s and dementia” (4) shows how a positive attitude makes longer lives better (bolds are mine).

Positive attitude could halve the risk of dementia, research suggests.  Having a positive attitude towards ageing could halve the risk of dementia, research suggests.

The study showed that older people who have positive beliefs about old age are far less likely to develop dementia.

The “protective” effect was found for all the participants, as well as among those carrying a gene that puts them at greater risk of developing dementia.

Here is the positive, self reinforcing three step loop, that we can start, to live longer, with better memories and clearer minds.   Eat better, exercise more and get good sleep at the right time.   These steps enhance our positive attitudes so we think more clearly and remember more.  That attitude helps live longer so we stick with the three steps as live gets better and better.

Learn Spanish in Three Days ONLINE

Instant $110 discount on the course!

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

Read below to see why we are offering our Super Spanish course online for the first time.

Speaking Spanish is a huge benefit on its own.  You can become one of the rare North Americans who can get along in Spanish speaking countries.  You can be one of the special people who can communicate with 10 million non-English speakers in the USA.  Spanish is the second most used language in the USA.  There are more Spanish speakers than speakers of Chinese, French, German, Italian, Hawaiian, and the Native American languages combined.  According to the Census Bureau, Spanish is the primary language of nearly 50 million people in the US.  This is the largest Spanish-speaking community outside of Mexico. Only half of these speakers also speak English “very well,” and 19% do not speak Spanish at all.

You can tap into all this potential when you speak Spanish.  Yet there are more benefits.

An article in England’s leading newspaper, the Telegraph, entitled “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism” (1) sum up the biggest benefit of learning a second language and increased intelligence.  The article says: “Learning a foreign language is more than just a boost to your CV or handy for traveling.  It will make you smarter, more decisive and even better at English.  Physiological studies have found that speaking two or more languages is a great asset to the cognitive process.  The brains of bilingual people operate differently than single language speakers, and these differences offer several mental benefits.”

The article then explains studies that show seven cognitive advantages gained from learning a foreign language.

#1:  You become smarter
#2:  You build multitasking skills
#3:  You stave off Alzheimer’s and dementia
#4:  Your memory improves
#5:  You become more perceptive
#6:  Your decision-making skills improve
#7:  You improve your English

Does it sound impossible to learn Spanish in three days?  Yes, it is impossible when you try to learn Spanish in the old, traditional way.

Though you may choose to take more time using this course to learn Spanish, thousands of our readers have learned at our Spanish courses.

There is a scientific method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books that create educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun.   This course works because it is education without stress!

This method was created and refined by the Bulgarian educational master, Georgi Lozanov, who transformed the entire Soviet educational system to such a degree that this third world country beat the USA into space.

Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside of Bulgaria who were allowed to be taught this system in the early 70s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for  four decades. It was a delight!

Merri and I began integrating these techniques with other shamanic and educational tactics we had gained in our global travels and then applied them to teach Spanish in three days.

The course has been proven again and again by the thousands who have used this system.  You can read a few of the many raves we have received from delegates who have learned from the Super Thinking Spanish course we created.

Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.

One delegate from St. Louis wrote:  Hi Gary,  Just ended forty-five years in dentistry last week, and I’m on to a new career.  What is my new career?  Still formulating, but the eye -opening,mind expanding Super-Spanish course last weekend in St. Louis surely shows me the opportunity exists to expand my horizons.

Besides having a lot of nice people to learn our new language; the methods Merri and you developed proved to be just what you said they would be.  We all and I in particular relaxed our way to new learning.  I feel so very comfortable with the basis of my new language skills that I know I will be spitting out great Spanish sentences by the time I reach Ecuador in October.  Last year I spent six weeks in Ecuador and now I plan on conversing with the people.

Today’s excerpt of your newsletter really hit home. You do what you say you will. There are no surprises or hidden sales tricks. The only tricks are beneficial to our learning.  Thank you for a wonderful experience that I was quite unable to grasp how you would pull it off.  You did, however, and I look forward to other courses that you offer, and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially.  Best regards, Denis Molloy.

Another wrote about the Super Spanish course:   Buenos Dias, here is a testimonial for Super Thinking-Super Spanish.  Please feel free to use all or part in promotions for the course.  In addition, you may give my email address to any prospect “on the fence” about enrolling.  Yesterday, in Cotacachi, Ecuador, I finished Super Spanish.  I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.

After three days, I can speak Spanish in complete sentences. In simple conversations, such as buying groceries or ordering a meal, I can make myself understood. I think that’s incredible!

Although I am far from the competence level of a native speaker, I feel I’ve taken a giant step forward in learning Spanish so that I can experience the people and culture of Ecuador.  The foregoing benefits would have more than justified the time and money I invested in Super Spanish.  And learning some Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course.

Prior to leaving the USA, I had felt for some time that the pace of life there was unhealthy for me (and for most people) and I did nothing about it.

I’ve thought about the pace issue during the course.  One of the key elements Merri Scott designed into Super Spanish is placing the student in the optimal state for learning.  In class, the past three days, I’ve been re-introduced to guided journeys and introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music (www.sundaybaroque.org).  What a blessing! I’m inclined to make one or both a daily part of my life.   Rob Christi.  Cotacachi, Ecuador

Another attendee from a course wrote:   “I took this incredible class a few weeks ago, and I would like to tell anyone that is interested, that it is an amazing three days of learning with lots of laughs included. You leave everyday wanting to learn more and are so excited to do so.

“Other Spanish classes and tutoring made us feel like it would take forever to get to the point where we could put it into practice, but this method gave us a more fluent use for everyday life almost immediately AND the confidence to use it.  It is a fantastic way to show people how much they know and give confidence to learn and use Spanish creating a momentum.

“They made learning Spanish easy and fun in a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.  I would definitely recommend this course.  Even if you know some Spanish, this helps make it easier because of the less stress that no verb conjugations gives you.  This gives you more confidence in yourself to try and speak it more.

 “The stress free atmosphere and tons of interaction and participation were very conducive to learning.  The relaxation techniques alone are worth the price.  The fact that I can now feel more comfortable conversing in Spanish with my new friends and neighbors is priceless.  Muchas, muchas gracias.”

“I loved the relaxed environment.  I picked up quite a lot of new vocabulary.  I found this course very informative about how the language works, how I can make sentences and understand others better!  Muchas Gracias!  I had a call from Telcel (the local phone company) after our second class and I was able to speak and understand them for the first time. Despacio (meaning slowly) … a great word!  Everyone should take this course before they pick up bad habits.”

“I liked how simply the course was organized and the positive attitude about learning.  Thank you so much for helping me to learn Spanish!”

“I liked the laid back yet professional approach.  I highly recommend this new, relaxing method of learning Spanish,  I feel a lot more confident in the delivery of my words and sentences. It was taught in an excellent and very professional way.

“It was a very enjoyable class.”

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music in the learning process.  At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  Merri Scott was among just a few who learned directly from Lozanov.

The second tactic uses 17 unique lessons to provide Spanish fluency in a short time.   Let me prove to you how this tactic works by teaching you hundreds of Spanish words in less than 30 seconds.

Here is the proof.

“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently.  For example action is accion, education-educacion, manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”

There you have it.  How long did it take you to read the sentence?  You now know hundreds of Spanish words that you will never forget.

See examples of the words you already know below.

How long would have taken you to memorize all those words?  How soon would you have forgotten them?

This is just one of seventeen Spanish lessons in the course.

The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.

Then, the third lesson teaches almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

The fourth lesson shows how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds).  This simple lesson leaves a person sounding like a Spanish professor without ever conjugating a verb.

Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything desired in Spanish.

Lesson six gives valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples the Spanish capacity with three words for “yesterday,” “now” and “tomorrow”.

By the end of three days you feel comfortable speaking Spanish.

Plus the system is Impro-Dynamic.  This means your Spanish keeps getting better even though you do not seem to be studying… practicing… or speaking Spanish.

I was amazed by this as I traveled back and forth from the USA to Ecuador.  The longer I was away from Ecuador… the better my Spanish became.  My second language was automatically improving The self improving feature comes because you learn to create Spanish sentences rather than remember them.  The portion of the brain that creates is more powerful than the portion that recalls.  When your mind creates something… it owns it!  You do not have to remember .

During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know .  

You then learn how to create Spanish sentences from these words.

Throughout the course you learn how to pronounce the sentences you create.

When the course ends… the mind keeps working… and creating… so next time you begin to speak Spanish you’ll be surprised .  You improve even though you have not actively worked on your lingual skill.

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.  Normally $149, this is available at the highly reduced price of $79. Simply use coupon code SPANISH110 at checkout.

I’ll be in touch personally via email with each person who signs up for this course to see how it works or what is required to make it better.  Once this test is complete, we plan to offer the program on a larger scale and at a much higher price.

Here are more testimonials from previous Super Spanish Courses.

Maggie wrote: It didn’t really seem possible that we would be speaking and understanding Spanish in only 3 days but the course made it happen in a very supportive learning environment.  I would highly recommend this course for anyone wishing to learn “practical Spanish”.  The teaching methods, use of relaxation, the use of native Spanish speakers for pronunciation and the teachers themselves who were approachable and helpful and always positive made this a very valuable class.

This course improved my self confidence in my ability to learn and retain a language.  It was presented with genuine enthusiasm, great energy and the style of learning is very effective. Gracias!  It was a great experience.

Nadine wrote: “Just spent the last 3 days in the most wonderful learning environment learning Spanish.  What an amazing learning experience!!  First day out of class and I could not stop thinking in Spanish WOW!!  I am amazed by how much I learned, retained and how much more is showing up now that I am out of class.  And the best part is THERE WAS NO STUDYING!! Indeed this is Super Thinking!!!  I would highly recommend this to anyone that has ever had a desire to learn another language or learn anything in record time.

And a few days after that ….  As I went through my day, just hanging out with my son, I could see myself starting to think in Spanish.  At first I thought it was amusing but as it continued and increased I thought “My goodness this is really remarkable amazing” It was really an effortless unfolding.  I wasn’t at any point “trying” to think in Spanish, just words I knew would fly across the screen in my mind.  And then this afternoon, my son cuddled up on the couch to watch some cartoons on his ipad and was watching Peppa Pig in Spanish…hmm coincidence?  I think not, I’m radiating Spanish so much that my son is being influenced!  Thanks a million again.  This weekend the best learning experience of my life!!

If you have ever had a desire to learn Spanish this is the way to do it!  By the end of the first day I had more confidence and more practical ability than I had from any previous courses I had taken.  It was fun and relaxed and full of laughter.  You will leave this class excited to use what you have learned.  Rather than leaving overwhelmed with how much you have yet to learn and master, you are equipped with the knowledge and know how to go out and communicate as well as the excitement to do it!”

Gary noted:  “The whole approach is positive and conducive to learning at a level that benefits ALL participants.  It is not intimidating and does not set up a pass/fail atmosphere.  The presenters are terrific and the results unbelievable.  It was relaxed, informal, friendly and effective.”

Twila said:  “This class provided a very refreshing and relaxed way of learning.  The atmosphere felt very safe to say the words you were practicing.  I learned a lot in a way that will make it easy to apply.  Starting with conversation is way more fun.  How quickly you can learn!  It was a great group, great instructors and great stories.

The atmosphere in the classroom was so relaxed that learning Spanish felt like a breeze and not like a painful task.  The relaxation exercises are really conducive to language learning.  We learned A LOT in a short time and it was fun and the environment was non-threatening.”

Brigitte sent this:  “Buenos Dias, Suzanne. su clase de espanol es excelente! Muchas Gracias!  
I have already done what you suggested and went into the program listening to the music and going over the lessons.  I know: Repetition……reinforcement…..thinking in the new language….it’s all part of it.  I loved your course and will certainly recommend it to friends.  Who knows….I might feel the urge and have the opportunity to repeat it at your beautiful place in Puerto Aventuras…..Quien sabe? Hasta otro dia y saludos a su familia.”

Marie wrote:  “I would highly recommend this course.  The amount covered in 3 days is amazing!  All with no stress.  The correlation lessons and pronunciation practice has greatly reduced my anxiety to go out and use my Spanish.  I really enjoyed the whole process and thank you for the take away tools.”

How to Live 11.11% Longer


Do the math about longevity and sleep.

The figures are not all in yet for 2017 but it looks like Americans will see a declining life expectancy for the third year in a row.  This has not happened since the Spanish flu, 100 years ago.

Life expectancy is climbing substantially for residents of every other industrialized nation.  America is alone in this decline.  Life spans are dropping to levels seen in Mexico and the Czech Republic.

One big reason for this drop in life expectancy is the opioid crisis.

Another reason for statistically shorter lifespans is increasing long term sleep deprivation.

Many studies suggest that there is a strong relationship between sleep duration and longevity.  One study that followed over 21,000 twins lasted more than 22 years (1).  The research looked at sleep duration, use of sleep medications and quality of sleep.

The conclusion was that people who sleep less than seven hours or more than eight hours a night, have an increased risk of death by 17 percent to 24 percent.

The use of sleep medications increased the risk of mortality by over 30%!

Below is the longevity math of getting the right amount of sleep:

If you live to 80, that’s about average.  You get 700,800 hours.

If you sleep 6 hours a night that’s bad.  That’s 175,200 of sleep.  You get 525,600 hours awake.

You gain 20% more years above the average with good sleep.

If you live to 100.  You get 876,000 hours.  Sleep 8 hours a night.  That’s 292,000 hours of sleep.

You get 584,000 hours awake.

Good sleep gains over 58,400, 11.11%, more wakeful hours.  More importantly, those hours will feel better!  The hours are more refreshed… healthier, more balanced, alert, energetic and at peace.

That math is a bit skewed so don’t put too much in it, but evidence is pretty conclusive that you gain quantity and quality of life when you get seven to eight hours of sleep each night.  Chronic sleep loss, contributes to health problems such as weight gain, high blood pressure, and a decrease in the immune system’s effectiveness.

Actually, we don’t need scientists to tell us how important sleep is to the quality of life.  One thing we all know is how we feel after a night without enough sleep!

Sleep makes you feel better, and a good mood is highly relevant to longevity.  Good, adequate sleep helps your heart, weight, mind, and every part of your body.

Here’s three tips on how to sleep better.

#1: Use Herbs.  John Douillard at Lifespa.com says in an article Rejuvenate, “Don’t Sleep”:  (2)

According to Ayurveda, the body needs energy to settle itself down in order to sleep.  Without such energy, the nervous system may respond by continuously releasing stress hormones.  A person at this deep level of exhaustion may not have enough energy to settle their mind and, although tired, may stay wired and be unable to truly rest.

Four Best Herbs for Sleep

There are a handful of herbs that I use in my practice that naturally support a healthy response to stress while acting as nervines, tonics, or adaptogens for the nervous system.  Be careful, as many herbs commonly used for sleep are actually too calming, causing lingering tiredness throughout the day.

My rule of thumb for identifying a true nervous system tonic is to be sure it supports both sleep at night and healthy energy during the day—making it neither a stimulant nor a sedative.  Here are my favorite “four horsemen for sleep,” which make up my Sleep Easy formula in the LifeSpa online shop.

Brahmi (Centella asiatica)

Brahmi is one of my favorite herbs for deep nervous system rejuvenation. It has shown to be rejuvenating for the nervous system with a long history of supporting healthy sleep.

Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera)

Ashwagandha is considered one of the most well-studied adaptogens, and is used to help reset healthy sleep/wake cycles in those with circadian imbalances. (3) As a deep rejuvenative for the mind, body and mood, it supports energy during the day while under stress, and also supports the body’s ability to normalize cortisol levels so that they are in sync with natural daily circadian cycles.

Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora)

Skullcap is another well-studied adaptogen, nervous system and mood tonic that can support healthy daytime energy and the ability to settle the nervous system in the evening.

Passionflower (Passiflora incarnata)

Passionflower is the final piece of the four horsemen of adaptogenic herbs used in my Sleep Easy herbal formula. Passionflower supports healthy mood and energy during the day while supporting normal sleep cycles at night. For centuries, it has been used as a nervous system, mood, and sleep tonic.

#2: Prepare to sleep after sunset.  Numerous ancient systems of health operate on the principle that the body works in cycles that are in tune with nature.  Every day cycles consists of two four hour cycles aligned with the movement of the sun.  The first waking cycle begins around 2am and around 4am to 5am (the average time of sunrise) is the best time to wake up.   Noon, when the sun is highest is the best time to eat the day’s main meal.  The evening cycle based around sunset is most conducive for sleep.  The body starts to slow down around six pm and if you allow your mind and body to slow down, around 9pm to 10pm is the best time to start sleep for deepest sleep.

#3: Slow down your mind and body after 6pm.  Quit work.  Change into relaxing clothes.  Avoid using smartphones, tablets, and computers.  Their electrical magnetic frequencies can cause lower levels of melatonin and shorten the deepest cycles of sleep.

Avoid the evening news!  Why fill you head with adrenaline pumping negatives that keep your thoughts active and your heart pounding.  Mediate… or do some deep breath or a few stretches… or best, all three.

Eliminate caffeine and alcohol that can increase nighttime urination.  Avoid big meals in the evening.  They make the body work when it needs to rest.

Medicine is dose.  Sleep is the greatest of medicines.  When we get enough, but not too much sleep, chances are we’ll live longer… better and enjoy the extra time more.

Be Smarter With Less Stress

Join the top 3 percent of intelligent people in the world.

Become more independent and relaxed by becoming smarter.

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

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

Delegates at a Super Thinking course relaxing in their secret rose garden.

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

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

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

Inflate Your IQ.

When it comes to money… inflation is cheating.

That’s bad for you.

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

Monetary inflation is a sneaky government and business trick.

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

They promise you more.

Liars?

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

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

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

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

Gain more than IQ.

Be smarter… more energetic…. healthier… more relaxed.

That’s the way to get ahead!

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

You can improve your IQ in just weeks.

You might well ask… How is this possible?

Here’s how the scientists say it is possible.

A Wall Street Journal article entitled “Ways to Inflate Your IQ”(1)  show how you can be smarter and actually add matter to your brainThe article says:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Improve the brain through music… without lessons.

Here’s the Super Thinking story…

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

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

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

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

Proof?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Share our years of experience.

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

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

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

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

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

Another attendee to the Super Thinking Workshop sent this note.

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

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

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

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

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

Relax in the Secret Rose Garden.

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

Part two is a longer portion on theory.

Part one is enough.

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

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

You might ask…”Will it work for me”?

The Super Thinking Workshop will help increase your IQ.

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

Inflation is a cheat… a crime when it comes to money.  Inflating your IQ to beat inflation is simple good sense.  Learn Super Thinking now with no risk.  Begin to increase your intelligence today.

Sleep Secrets That Slow Cellular Aging


Here’s how to sleep for better health and to slow cellular aging.

Nobel prizes reveal the importance of good sleep.

Three scientists were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for discoveries about the life cycles.

Their discoveries advanced our understanding of molecular mechanisms controlling the circadian rhythm.

These discoveries included advances on how our cells recycle their content, a process known as autophagy, a Greek term for “self-eating.”  Disorders in autophagy is important in many diseases and in aging.

The research studied genes that control the rhythm of daily life.  They peeked inside our biological clock, helping “explain how plants, animals and humans adapt their biological rhythm so that it is synchronized with the Earth’s revolutions.”

The studies found that certain genes within cells create a protein that accumulates in cells at night, and then degrades during the day.

The decades long research revealed mechanisms that drive the cell’s clockwork.

Nobel Prize members noted:

“With exquisite precision, our inner clock adapts our physiology to the dramatically different phases of the day. The clock regulates critical functions such as behavior, hormone levels, sleep, body temperature and metabolism.”

The research also found that when the regulating gene mutated, the cell’s rhythm with nature is lost.

All organisms, including humans, operate on 24-hour rhythms that control sleep, wakefulness, blood pressure, heart rate, alertness, body temperature and even reaction time.  When the genes work properly the body has the highest chances of natural good health.

The protein the genes create is call PER. PER accumulates at night and is blocked during the day.  As the body eats PER during the day, the gene regains the ability to create more PER at night.

Their work was pivotal, the Nobel committee said, because the misalignment between a person’s lifestyle and the rhythm dictated by an inner timekeeper — jet lag after a trans-Atlantic flight, for example — could affect well-being and over time could contribute to the risks for various diseases.

Here is an Important Health Tip.

Numerous, ancient sciences of life, have long recognized  the importance of our natural rhythms and use the “As Above, So Below” principle. Incorporate the cycles in your daily habits and routines to help keep your inner biological rhythms in tune with nature.

Here is a tip contained in one of my three Shamanic Natural Health Reports.

Break everyday into two sets of cycles that relate to our natural rhythms.

These cycles relate to our movement (air), our physical being (water) and our digestive sensory processes (fire).

The biggest meal of the day is lunch, eaten at noon.

Here is the essence of the ancient concepts that promote timing of the life cycle and are being confirmed by modern science:

2am to 6am:  Air Cycle. This is time to start the wake up process. The mind is light, active and this is a good time to think, multi task and learn.

6am to 10am:  Water Cycle. Strength is increased. This is a perfect time to do physical activity…(with no injuries and yet a better workout).

10am to 2pm:  Fire Cycle. This is the time for digestion. High noon is the best time for the main meal of the day.

2pm to 6pm:  Air Cycle. The mind is light and active again. Study and do mental work.

6pm to 10pm:  Water Cycle. If you eat a heavy evening meal, this cycle will digest it. However if your evening meal is early and light, your digestive system will be ready to purify the pressures of the day.  If the body does not have to digest a heavy meal, this second fire cycle acts like an oven cleaner and burns up stresses and toxicities gained during the day, thus insuring a body that is not overweight.

10pm to 2am:  Fire Cycle. Best time for deepest sleep and a cleansing so we can start the wake up process and rise with a light and active body, mind and spirit.

These cycles are based on nature’s rhythm.

Live with these cycles and increase the odds of good health.

Integrate the tips when modern science confirms ancient health wisdom.

Feel better.

Have more energy.

Live longer.

Omega-3 is important to sleep, and cellular longevity.

Studies on sleep and omega-3s have shown that higher levels of omega-3s are associated with fewer sleep problems. DHA has also been linked to reduced severity of sleep apnea.

Research at Oxford University studied the effect of daily 600 mg DHA omega-3 supplementation (or placebo supplementation). After about four months of popping either fish oil pills or placebos.  The subjects who took omega-3s slept nearly an hour longer each night, with fewer disturbances.

All kinds of evidence points to a connection between omega-3s and sleep, including the fact that omega-3s can reduce depression and anxiety, both core features in sleep problems.

Omega-3 does much more for longevity than just induce better sleep.

About Omega-3

My friend Jim Vigue keeps me informed about Omega-3.

Jim is a member of the American Association of Drugless Practioners, a Holistic Health Coach and Board Certified in Alternative Medicine. He is also a former USA Baseball/Major League Players Association Coach of the Year and an award winning author. He has written on diverse subjects such as natural health, 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.

Dr. Jim told us:  Our research shows that people who have the highest Omega-3 Index values appear to have the slowest rates of “cellular aging.”

He outlined how Omega 3s may be doing more than just helping longevity.

He wrote: If I could only take one supplement it would be a good omega-3 product.

When we designed our product we included vitamin D, the super anti oxidant astaxanthin  and a proprietary anti oxidant blend along with the krill oil and calamarine oil.

This is a very powerful combination. When you compare a solid level of omega-3s in the blood to other interventions that delay the diseases of aging omega 3s come out first all the time.

The key is getting the blood level of omega-3s at a level that helps offset many of the diseases of aging including heart disease, diabetes, cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s, arthritis and even some cancers.

The fact is that if you can get your omega-3 index around 8% you will age at less than half the rate as those with an index of around 3%. The Japanese are the longest lived people in the industrialized world because they have one of the highest omega 3 index values in the world.

 “No nutrient is more important for decreasing cardiovascular death – and more lacking – than omega-3.”

Bernadine Healy, MD  Cardiologist and  Past President of American Heart Association  – Past Director of the NIH – Past Director of the Red Cross

Low levels of Omega-3 fatty acids are associated with higher rates of:

  • Heart Disease, including:
  • Sudden Cardiac Death (Primary Cardiac Arrest)
  • Mortality from Congestive Heart Failure
  • Mortality after heart attack
  • 2nd Heart Attack
  • 1st Heart Attack in those with High Triglycerides/Low HDL
  • 2nd Stroke
  • Cellular Aging
  • Depression (Major Depressive Disorder)
  • Dementia/Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Inflammation
  • Chronic Joint Swelling
  • Headaches
  • Prostate cancer.

In the USA and European Union, the average Omega-3 Index is 4-5%.

In Japan, the average diet is high in Omega-3 and the average Omega-3 Index is 9.5%.

In the USA, sudden cardiac death rates are about 20 times HIGHER than they are in Japan.

The importance of measuring your Omega-3 Index:

Dr. Jim designs and develops natural products for his own companies and for others. He first introduced his Athlete’s Best line of supplements to us nearly 6 years ago. His flagship product is his proprietary Premium Omega-3 Plus product.

He feels his omega plus formula is the number one supplement that people should be taking before anything else. It is a proprietary formula designed to offer the optimal amount of ingredients for maximum benefit. Dr. Jim’s formula contains the most effective amount of krill oil, astaxanthin, and DHA to achieve desired results.

Regular fish oil doesn’t create enough Omega 3 and has more contaminants and oxidizes quicker than what he has in his formula.   Fish oil is obsolete and much better lipid results are achieved with Dr. Jim’s formulation.

And more research has come out on this since Bernadine Healy’s quote that shows cholesterol isn’t the culprit it has been made out to be.

The fact is that there really is nothing else better for overall health than a healthy omega index. Heart disease is one area of course where omega-3s are known to benefit. But there is also the fact that a healthy omega score slows down telomere reduction and cellular aging, limits cognitive decline and helps hold off Alzheimer’s and reduces overall inflammation levels in the body (thereby improving joint pain).

Inflammation is considered a major factor in all the diseases of aging and this product does a great job at reducing CRP (C-Reactive Protein)which is the major inflammation marker. Users of the Athlete’s Best formula have also shown increased levels of HDL (good cholesterol) and lower readings of both triglycerides and PSA scores.

This identical formula is being sold in gyms all over the country at much higher prices.

The cost per bottle cost is below $1.00 a day.

The price drops with multiple bottle orders and also includes free shipping which brings the cost per day even lower. Since it takes roughly 90 days for red blood cells to go through a complete cycle users really need to take the product(or any supplement for that matter) for at least 90 days to get the maximum benefit.

Longevity is connected to good sleep.   The three foundations of good health are good nutrition, purposeful, enjoyable exercises and good sleep.

Good sleep is also related to longevity, so here’s a tip on how to have better sleep:

Ma & Chuk

Our hounds Mah and Chuk.

Ever envy how a dog can sleep and think… “If only?”   Well, it’s time to turn that covetousness into action because good sleep can help you think better and live longer.

Numerous scientific studies reflect the importance of sleep to longevity and provide some glimpses as to why we live longer when we sleep better.

Sleep is related to melatonin, and melatonin is believed to preserve the longevity protein sirtuin 1.  Sirtuin-1, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the SIRT1 gene.  The functions of human sirtuins have not yet been totally determined, but studies suggest that the human sirtuins are involved in intracellular regulation that have an impact on longevity.

A study published in Nature (1) says: Sirtuin activators mimic caloric restriction, delay ageing and promote the survival of human cells.

This study also suggests that resveratrol activates sirtuins.

Sleep gets involved because melatonin preserves the longevity protein, Sirtuin 1.

A published study at Wiley’s online library (2) explains how sirtuin in the hippocampus of total sleep-deprived rats helps and says: Sirtuin activating compounds (STACs) can promote the survival of human cells.  Melatonin may serve as a novel therapeutic strategy directed for preventing the memory deficits resulting from TSD, possibly by effectively preserving the metabolic function and neuronal plasticity engaged in maintaining cognitive activity.

Perhaps the most convincing scientific study on longevity and sleep is shown in  the report “Mammalian Sleep, Longevity, and Energy Metabolism” (3).

The abstract says: Based on data for 53 mammalian species reported sleep cycle length correlates positively with life span and brain weight and negatively with metabolic rate.

The food supplement ashwagandha can help promote sleep.  Lifespa.com’s article “5 Reasons To Use Ashwagandha For Sleep”  says:

Brain lymphatics drain three pounds of toxins each year during sleep.  The worse you sleep, the less efficiently the brain drains, and the less the brain drains, the less likely you will get a good night’s sleep.

The article explains how stress inhibits sleep and how ashwagandha helps overcome stress and improve sleep. Here are three of the benefits of ashwaganda:

#1: Positively affect the neural receptors responsible for receiving GABA, an important neurotransmitter in reducing neuronal excitability.

#2:  Helps stop blood sugar levels from crashing during sleep and optimizes the body’s ability to burn fat and provide long-lasting fuel reserves to sleep deeply through an entire night.

#3: Acts as an antioxidant in the brain and liver, which triggered a natural protective effect against heavy metal damage, shielding the body’s main blood- and lymph-cleansing organ.

This by the way also helps support healthy weight while under heavy stress.  The report said:

In one study, 52 overweight adults were given ashwagandha or a placebo for 8 weeks.  At 4 and 8 weeks, they gave the subjects the Perceived Stress Scale, Food Cravings Questionnaire Oxford Happiness Questionnaire, Three-Factor Eating Questionnaire and measured serum cortisol, body weight, and body mass index.  The study showed positive outcomes on all counts, suggesting that ashwagandha root can be effectively used to combat stress and cravings, support mood and happiness, and support healthy body weight management in adults under heavy stress.

Isn’t it odd?   Some people worry about sleeping their lives away when the reverse is true.  Getting good sleep increases lifespan and makes the long lives we have, better too.

Reversatrol is one reason why I take a daily dose of the powdered food supplement Vitality Force.  Vitality Force contains heart healthy L-Arginine, L-Citruline, 9 vitamins,  CoQ10, astragin and reversatrol.
