Aging Better

Society is aging better.  


Ecuador shaman.  Integrate the shaman wisdom to age better.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Good Nutrition

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

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

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

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


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

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


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

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

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

Ecuador Shaman Health Tip

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


Gain Amazing Health Benefits with the Hogberry

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

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


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

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

Part of the answer is toxicity.

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

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

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

Burn Fat to Burn Toxins

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

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

The Key is in the Hogberry

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

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

These three reports are about:

#1: Nutrition

#2: Purification

#3: Exercise

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

#2: Eat combinations of food for ideal digestion.

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

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

quinoa pancakes

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.

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.
