    Great advice Ken and we really appreciate your take on retirement. Silvana and I could not agree more. We humans are creators and if we are not creating and striving to be better, more balanced, then health issues are sure to follow. We miss you here in Cuenca but
    hope that all is well where you are now. Thanks for a empowering article that can…[Read more]

    There is so much that can be done to improve your health and reduce or eliminate your symptoms of sleep apnea. This includes obstructive or central sleep apnea. This is important to address because sleep apnea causes hypoxia, or lack of oxygen, which is at the root of many autoimmune, inflammation and acidic conditions. Feel free to contact us…[Read more]

  • In a highly complex world, full of conflicting information, vested interests, and rapidly changing morals, we must rely on people and organizations that we can trust. Trust, according to the Merriam Webster […]

    • When it comes to any government agency you can not trust the information overall. There are some individuals within the organization that are honest but generally they are in a position of very little authority to ensure the integrity of information or service. If you don’t believe my comment, just think back about what you and the public have been told and then compare that to what has been revealed and the results. Just look at the joke the USA has for a government “Of the people, for the people, and by the people” to ensure their freedom. Sorry folks, tragically that has gone by the wayside.

    • . . . .are openly working together to Actively make the public sick . . . ? ? ? Is it possible that you’ve lost your friggin’ mind? Or are you just looking for “Clicks” or “Hits” on this ridiculous article.

      • Ken, I had the same reaction! What a jaded way to think that there are professional people who wake up every morning saying…”Let’s make more people sick and poise on their food supply today!! What a GOOD idea!” Smh…..

    • Well personally Patrick I trust you!

  • wife and I moved from Canada to Latin America at the end of 2011. While we really appreciate many things about Mexico, Guatemala, Colombia, and Argentina, we ultimately decided to live and work in Cuenca, […]

    • Great Article “Coady”!

    • Really enjoyed your article. We too are from Canada and can recommend Dr. Jorge Cabrera Vintimilla (Homeopatica-Naturopatica-Ayurvedica) here in Cuenca. Interesting that in order to practice Homeopathy or Naturopathy one also has to be an MD in Ecuador. The cost of a one hour computerized medical evaluation here in Cuenca is a fraction of what an individual would pay in Canada.

  • Still concerned about fat? That’s understandable. Since the Framingham heart study released its initial findings in the sixties and nutrition scientist Ancel Keys said there was an epidemic of heart a […]

    • Great article on Coconut Oil there is just glaring thing missing…where do I buy it in Cuenca?

      • Good point Bill. We buy our Coconut oil directly from Nature Spirits in Vilcabamba. http://www.oroblancoecuador.com They put our order on the bus in Loja and send it the same day. Generally they ship orders of $50 or more. If you are looking for a smaller amount I would recommend checking out Tienda Nectar in the centro.

  • If you are thinking of moving to a community that is significantly higher in elevation than you are used to, there is a lot to consider. Health issues for ‘lowlanders’ are going to be very different than for […]

    • For me, sleeping is far more difficult at Cuenca’s elevation. I’ve read various articles that suggest that anything over about 7,000 feet tends to cause us to breathe more rapidly when we sleep, trying to make up for the relative concentration of oxygen here. This results in exhaling a lot of water vapor, and can make us wake up feeling thirsty, and dry overall. It also results in apnea-like awakenings throughout the night for some people, or just the inability to remain asleep for very much time. I’m from Colorado Springs (elevation around the 6,300-foot point), and I always sleep much better and longer there. The same thing happens here in Ecuador when I’m on the coast. And a quick warning about newbies rushing up to the Cajas to hike — this can be very dangerous if you’re not acclimated to the elevation. And even if you are acclimated, the thin oxygen there will have a significant and noticeable effect on your muscular coordination. I went up a little higher than Tres Cruces for an event once, and was asked to bring a hand-drum to play; boy was I surprised to find out that I’d left all my rhythm back in Cuenca! I just did not have the physical coordination up there to play even the simplest rhythms. And if the lack of oxygen was affecting me that much physically, it had to have been affecting me cognitively, too. Just be aware of these issues and take it easy up there!
