July 2017 Newsletter

 

 

 

 

Dear Clients, Associates & Friends,                                

 

So, here we are in the middle of July, 2017 and a beautiful celebration that took place last week to celebrate our country’s 241st Birthday. The fireworks on the 4th celebrating the United States of America reminds me that FREEDOM IS NOT FREE and how grateful I am to all those brave soldiers who died and to those who jeopardize their lives and limbs every day to allow me to enjoy the freedoms I have and take for granted!  This holiday also brings back childhood memories of obtaining the best LEGAL explosives we could get our hands on (M80s) and blowing something up or sending things into the sky as high as something would go…I’m spilling the beans a little, being from Miami, hearing a gunshot or light explosion was never really a reason for concern; it actually melted itself into the back drop of the neighborhood. Lol!

 

I know I often stress how quickly time flies as we get older and that we feel we can get things done tomorrow…even though we know better! There’s nothing wrong with that approach, as long as you get it done.

 

We all remember when we couldn’t wait till we reached 18 or 21 years-old…things were going to be great: I could vote, drink, go places a little younger punk kid couldn’t. Now as we enter or continue well into middle age (ages 40-to whenever you want), we cringe at time and want it to slow down.

 

 

 

So even though we are living longer, I think we need to look at what shape our bodies and minds are in. What quality of life do you want to live if you’re fortunate living to age 80 and beyond? I say, “Life is for the living,” and people who refuse to take a few minutes a day to walk, eat better, stay on top of annual physicals, just may be the people who suffer later in life and watch everyone else enjoying things they would like to do!

 

So why do I bring this up? It’s July and I’m sure many are guilty of relinquishing their New Year’s resolutions, so I’m here to say, let’s start NEW…

do daily stretches, take 15 minute walks, eat more veggies, eat less more times per day, drink water instead of sodas, love more often…OK, I’m not Dr. Oz or even Dr. Ruth. Do things in moderation. I’ll just say live today like there’s no tomorrow…because tomorrow may not come, but if it does, be a little healthier to enjoy it!

Importance of Taking Time Out For Yourself

by John McGee

 

I just returned from Quito, Ecuador and had a blast on my day off from the International Living Conference, where I was one of the Experts and speakers concerning, Private Global Medical Insurances!

 

I wanted to make an important point that LIFE is stressful enough and taking time for yourself is really self-healing both on a mental and physical level. I hired a private driver and he showed me Quito and surrounding cities and it was an awesome and adventurous day that I will never forget. Quito is basically the CENTER of the World…

 

 

Standing in the center of the world

 

Check out how the magnetic and gravitational fields allow this egg

to stand up on a nail! 

 

Some say it’s Hocus Pocus; I follow the science!

 

The point I’m trying to make is that we are personally responsible to take time and I mean some time DAILY to reconfigure our outlook, recharge our passions … I love taking a ride on my Harley, walking in the park with my wife, chipping and putting a few golf balls, smoking a Cuban cigar and drinking a Johnnie Walker Blue Scotch… I am a little tightly wound as my wife says….so I need to take advantage of these moments… AS SHOULD YOU!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Importance of Having the Correct Private 
International Health Insurance Plan…….

By: John W. McGee

There are TWO things in Life that you can’t buy…
LOVE & HEALTH!

 

 

 

 

With the technological advances in medicine and health care throughout the world, doesn’t it make sense to have a Private Health Insurance coverage that allows you and your family access to the FINEST doctors, hospitals and other medical facilities in the world?

 

Most clients are very busy doing what they do best: running their companies, staying active during retirement, mixing the two, etc.! Unfortunately, many countries in Latin America and throughout the Third world, lack true professional advice – when it comes to benefits of their current health plans. Many PRIVATE plans offer ONLY networks of hospitals and doctors, limiting you and your family’s choices. Do you really care about choice – when it comes to you or your family’s life or death medical decisions? I hope so…. Do you want to go to John’s Hopkins, Mayo Clinic, and Cleveland Clinic or do you want to be forced to stay in a NETWORK?

 

This is known as Freedom of Choice. Your Freedom to Choose the Best!

 

Many residents in third world Latin American countries will travel to the United States for major surgeries and treatments. They will then return to their home country to continue treatment if their country is equipped to assist the patient; if not, several trips a year will be planned to revisit the States.

 

No Limitations is truly the only way you and your family as policy holders can really begin controlling the quality of medical attention.

 

Note: International Medical plans continue to evolve, and the best match is those that offer contracted facilities as well as allow freedom to choose.

 

 

Important Questions & Answers about Private International Health coverage

 

Question: As an International citizen, will benefits cease when I reach a certain age?

Answer: Be careful, some plans discontinue after age 70 or 75. www.expatglobalmedical.com offers policies that will cover you for LIFE.

 

Question: What are the benefits of having a Group or Corporate health coverage?

Answer: Many carriers offer a corporate policy that will cover a minimum of 5 employees to as many as 50+ employees. This plan is very attractive because all premium rates are identical. If you are 55 and the average age of the group is age 35, you will pay the same average premium as an employee age 35. This program is a great incentive or bonus to retain key executives or employees.

 

 

 

Question: What type of quality, ratings and history do the companies have?

Answer: www.expatglobalmedical.com offers you and your family access to the highest quality International Private Health Insurance (Individual, Corporate or Hybrid Association) programs and companies in the world.

 

Question: Which plan is right for my family and me?

Answer: Most plans offer complete freedom to choose any doctor or hospital in the world. Once we know the ages, country of citizenship, country of residence, if anyone takes prescribed medications and their daily dosage and preexisting conditions…we can customize a plan for you, your family or company within 48 hours.

 

Question: How does the process work if I am interested in attaining coverage?

Answer: Because each case is different and we establish a strategy to protect your assets so it’s not product driven…the plan is customized for the client, then products are plugged in to deter any possible Swiss Cheese leakage of financial exposure!

Foot Care

The National Institute on Aging

www.nia.nih.gov

 

 

 

It’s important to put “your best foot forward.” Be kind to your feet. Years of wear and tear can be hard on feet. So can disease, bad circulation, poorly trimmed toenails, and wearing shoes that don’t fit right. Foot problems are sometimes the first sign of more serious medical conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, and nerve or circulatory disorders.

 

Step in the Right Direction

Practice good foot care. Check your feet often, or have a member of your family check them. If you have a problem with your feet, your family doctor can help or you can see a podiatrist (doctor who treats feet). Sometimes, the special skills of an orthopedic surgeon or dermatologist are needed.

 

One easy step to take is to remember to put your feet up when you are sitting down. This helps keep blood moving to your feet. So can stretching, walking, or having a gentle foot massage. A warm foot bath is also helpful, but make sure your feet are dry before you put on your shoes. Try to avoid pressure from shoes that don’t fit. Don’t sit for a long time or keep your legs crossed for too long. Don’t smoke.

 

Make Sure the Shoes Fit

Protect your feet by wearing shoes whenever you go outdoors. Wearing comfortable shoes that fit well can prevent many foot problems. Here are some tips for making sure your shoes fit:

·       Shoe size may change as you age so always have your feet measured before buying shoes. The best time to measure your feet is at the end of the day when your feet are largest.

·       Most of us have one foot that is larger than the other; fit your shoe to your larger foot.

·       Don’t buy shoes by the size without trying them on first. The size marked inside the shoe may not fit you.

·       Walk in the shoes to make sure they feel right.

·       Choose a shoe that is shaped like your foot. Styles like high heels or pointed toes can hurt feet.

·       Stand up when trying on shoes to make sure there is about ½ inch between your toe and the end of the shoe.

·       Make sure the ball of your foot fits comfortably into the widest part of the shoe.

·       Don’t buy shoes that feel too tight and hope that they will stretch.

·       The heel of the shoe should not slide up and down on your heel when you walk.

·       The upper part of the shoes should be made of a soft, bendable material to match the shape of your foot.

·       Soles should give solid footing and not slip. Thick soles cushion your feet when walking on hard surfaces.

·       Low-heeled shoes are more comfortable, safer, and less damaging than high-heeled shoes.

 

 

 

Something’s Afoot: Common Problems

Fungal Infections, such as athlete’s foot, happen because our feet are in shoes most of the time. Shoes are warm, dark, and moist—the perfect place for fungus to grow. A fungus can cause dry skin, redness, blisters, itching, and peeling. It can be hard to cure. Over-the-counter anti-fungal powders or creams can help. If your foot does not get better within 2-4 weeks, talk to your doctor.

To prevent infections:

·       Keep your feet clean and dry. Be sure to dry the area between your toes.

·       Change your shoes and socks or stockings often to help keep your feet dry.

·       Don’t buy tight shoes.

·       Try dusting your feet every day with foot powder.

 

Dry skin can cause itching and burning feet. Use mild soap in small amounts and a cream or lotion on your legs and feet every day. Be careful about adding oils to bath water since they can make your feet and bathtub very slippery.

 

Corns and calluses are caused by pressure when the bony parts of your feet rub against your shoes. Wearing shoes that fit better or using special pads may help. You may feel better if you use some over-the-counter medicines, but they do not treat the cause of the problem. See your doctor, especially if you have diabetes or circulation problems.

 

Warts are skin growths caused by viruses. They are sometimes painful and may spread if not treated. Over-the-counter products rarely cure warts, so you may need to see your doctor.

 

Bunions develop when the joints in your big toe no longer fit together. They become swollen and tender. Bunions tend to run in families. If a bunion is not too painful, wearing shoes cut wide at the toes and instep (middle part of the foot), taping the foot, or wearing pads that cushion the bunion may help. Physical therapy and shoe inserts can bring relief. See your doctor. Medicines can help with pain. Sometimes surgery is needed to relieve the pressure and repair the toe joint.

 

Ingrown toenails are caused by a piece of the nail breaking the skin. This can happen if you don’t cut your toenails straight across so the corner of the nail can be seen above the skin. Use clippers made to cut toenails. Ingrown toenails are very common in the large toes. A doctor can remove the part of the nail that is cutting into the skin so the area can heal.

 

Hammertoe is caused by a shortening of the tendons that control toe movements. The toe knuckle grows and pulls the toe back. Over time, the joint gets bigger and stiffens as it rubs against shoes. This can affect your balance. More space in the shoe or stocking can help. In very serious cases, surgery may be needed.

Spurs are calcium bumps that grow on bones of your feet. They are caused by stress on the feet. Standing for long periods of time, wearing badly fitting shoes, or being overweight can make spurs worse. Sometimes spurs are painless. At other times, they can hurt. Treatments for spurs are foot supports, heel pads, and heel cups. Sometimes surgery is needed.

 

Swollen feet may be a sign of more serious health problems. If you continue to have swollen feet and ankles, see your doctor.

 

 

 

Stay on Your Toes

If you have diabetes or peripheral artery disease, good foot care is very important. Both diseases can cause poor blood flow to the feet. Scrapes or bruises can become infected. Make sure your doctor checks your feet.

 

Don’t Get Off on the Wrong Foot

Good foot care and regular foot checks are an important part of your health care. Your doctor should look at your feet often. If you have foot problems, be sure to talk to your doctor.

PLACES I’VE BEEN AND MY CLIENTS LIVE

 

 

 

 

Quito, Ecuador

 

 

 

Quito, formally San Francisco de Quito, is the capital city of Ecuador, and at an elevation of 2,850 metres (9,350 ft) above sea level, it is the highest official capital city in the world and the one which is closest to the equator. It is located in the Guayllabamba river basin, on the eastern slopes of Pichincha, an active stratovolcano in the Andes mountains. With a population of 2,671,191 according to the last census (2014), Quito is the second most populous city in Ecuador, after Guayaquil. It is also the capital of the Pichincha province and the seat of the Metropolitan District of Quito. The canton recorded a population of 2,239,191 residents in the 2010 national census. In 2008, the city was designated as the headquarters of the Union of South American Nations.

 

The historic center of Quito has one of the largest, least-altered and best-preserved historic centers in the Americas. Quito and Krakow, Poland, were the first World Cultural Heritage Sites declared by UNESCO, in 1978. The central square of Quito is located about 25 kilometres (16 mi) south of the equator; the city itself extends to within about 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) of zero latitude. A monument and museum marking the general location of the equator is known locally as la mitad del mundo (the middle of the world), to avoid confusion, as the word ecuador is Spanish for equator.
