    Baby Boomers Retire to Mexico For A Better Health Care Experience By Kim Wherley

    Affordable health care with a pleasant experience... Does such a thing exist? Yes! In Mexico, many retirees are sitting back and soaking up all the attention at the Doctor’s office. With bed-side manors still a trend, many dentists, general practitioners and specialists offer a warm smile; informative, direct communication and a sincere answer to all your questions. In addition, many of these doctors still do house-calls for a small additional fee. To top it all off, many health professionals in Mexico are English speaking and can offer alternative,but proven, methods of care that the average U.S. patient cannot gain access to.
    “What kind of V.I.P. pass does one need to acquire for this kind of quality service?”, you ask. The answer is, “There’s no V.I.P. pass needed!” Anyone can enjoy the plush services of the health care industry in Mexico!
    Very few people know that many doctors and dentists have received training not only in Mexico, but also in in the U.S. and/or Europe, making them world-class leaders in their field of medicine. In addition many clinics and hospitals offer some of the most progressive medicines, treatments and surgeries at the highest- quality standards. Mexico can offer both affordable healthcare, as well as alternative medicines and treatments that are not approved in the U.S., but have proven to repair some of the most prominent issues in the average retiree body,successfully. Hip and knee replacement surgeries, alternative, non invasive him and knee repair, as well as access to anti-aging, heart and eye specialists has put Mexico on the map of “health care giants” for the Boomer generation.
    It is estimated that the average cost of healthcare in Mexico is between 50% and 70% cheaper compared to the U.S. . World-class surgeons, clinics, dentists, hospitals, even in-home care and anything else related to health care is less expensive and more accessible than in the U.S. . Many can argue that Canada offers comparable or better health care, however prescription drugs and out-of-pocket expenses are much less in Mexico.
    Can you get health insurance in Mexico?
    The answer is, YES. Anyone can get health insurance in Mexico for a very affordable price! The average price is one third or even less for full health care coverage for a family. In addition, many insurance companies are beginning to expand their coverage to Mexico, or
    are teaming up with other companies already based in Mexico. In locations like Tijuana, Baja California, the Medical / Health Tourism industry has been in service for years with it’s many visitors from the Southern California areas. With this constant flow of traffic from California, this area has several health insurance companies that focus on providing health insurance for foreigners. Tijuana also attracts patients from all over the U.S. and the world with it’s close proximity to the San Diego airport about 20 minutes drive North. For many U.S. citizens, flying to San Diego and driving down for an appointment or treatment eliminates the headache of flying internationally.With the current economical conditions world-wide, many retirees are seeking a secret getaway with perfect weather, an affordable and comfortable lifestyle and, most importantly, affordable, high-quality health care. The simple fact of the matter is that Mexico has all the answers to the Baby Boomer’s everyday wants and needs. As more retirees decide on their next destination, Mexico will be there, ready to offer it’s warm weather, welcoming culture and affordable lifestyle to all who seek the good life. Saludos!

  • Be Social- you'll Live Longer!

    Social Connections Promote Longevity

    Previous studies have linked the quality and quantity of a person’s social relationships to mental, as well as, physical health. Julianne Holt-Lunstad, from Brigham Young University (Utah, USA), and colleagues conducted a meta-analysis of 148 studies that included data from 308,849 men and women who were followed for more than 7 years.  The team’s analysis determined that individuals with adequate social connections have a 50% greater likelihood of longevity, as compared to those with poor or insufficient social relationships. The researchers note that the overall effect remained consistent across age demographics and health status, suggesting that positive social engagement across the population may be a key to society-wide longevity.Social Connections Promote Longevity

  • Red Tea Rocks your Body!

    Red Tea is Awesome!!

    Red Tea Helps Boost Antioxidant Defenses

    Rooibos, a type of red tea from an African plant (Aspalathus linearis), has been used in traditional medicine, with previous studies reporting anti-inflammatory, immune-modulating and chemopreventive properties.  A potent antioxidant, rooibos also contains a variety of phenolic compounds, including flavanols and flavones.  Debora Villano, from the Istituto Nazionale di Ricerca per gli Alimenti e la Nutrizione (Rome, Italy), and colleagues found that consumption of both fermented and unfermented rooibos tea increased total antioxidant capacity (TAC) levels in human plasma.  Among a group of 15 healthy adults who consumed either 500ml of water, unfermented or fermented rooibos teas, those who drank fermented rooibos tea experienced an increase in the antioxidant capacity of 6.6%, and those who drank unfermented rooibos tea experienced a 2.9% rise. The team concludes that: “The data show that rooibos teas represent a source of dietary antioxidants in humans.”Red Tea Helps Boost Antioxidant Defenses
