Powerful Benefits of High-dose Vitamin C IV Therapy

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a powerful antioxidant that plays a crucial role in overall health.

High-dose Vitamin C is crucial to a healthy body and contributes to your immune defence by supporting and directly stimulating various cellular functions of both the innate and adaptive immune systems.

Vitamin C is an essential antioxidant and is responsible for many functions in the body. While not all of our oral supplements are fully absorbed, IV delivery of Vitamin C ensures that 100% of the vitamin is bioavailable. In addition, when given high doses, Vitamin C converts from an antioxidant to an oxidative therapy.

Failing to get enough vitamin C can result in deficiencies that may result in poor wound healing, easy bruising, bleeding of the gums, and anemia. In addition, since vitamin C aids in iron absorption, a severe deficiency may cause scurvy, a disease categorized by extreme weakness, bruising, bleeding, and lethargy.

I may suggest a high-dose vitamin C IV drip if:

·        You spend a lot of time in the city, travel a lot, and are frequently exposed to pollution
·        You suddenly feel run down
·        You have gastrointestinal issues
·        You have a chronic infection

Familial Health Insurance, When and Why?

Familial Health Insurance, When and Why?

In Ecuador, family insurance is available for both heterosexual and same-sex couples/families. I felt this was important to note since not all countries recognize the marriage of same-sex couples and this recognition was only recently made in Ecuador in 2019. Currently, same-sex marriages are totally legal in our country and are protected by law.
If you are thinking about starting or adding to your family we recommend that you get a health insurance plan as soon as possible before taking that next step. This is recommended because in the event that you or your wife becomes pregnant immediately and you contract a health plan after, this pregnancy will be considered a pre-existing condition and will not be covered by your health insurance. In order to ensure coverage, insurance must be contracted three months before you plan to conceive a baby in Ecuador. If contracted at least three months before, the mother and the unborn child will definitely have coverage before, during, and after the pregnancy. In the event of complications at birth, thermal cribs, surgeries, or immediate care for catastrophic illnesses is needed, this will also be covered by the company.

As for …

Are you sure that you have the BEST Health Insurance Coverages? Check and compare!

Coverages and exclusions in insurance policies changes according to each company. It cannot be generalized since health insurance companies have the option to improve plans according to their financial capacity.
For instance:
We work with one of the best companies in the country, both in coverage and prices. Compared to other companies, they have several additional benefits.
These extra benefits include:
• Nurse at home up to the full amount of coverage while prescribed by a doctor
• Physical, language, speech therapy, etc. No session limits up to the full amount of coverage
• Hospital coverage of 80%/20%.
o There is a maximum copay of $1,600. If the hospital bill is more than $8,000. For example, if you need a hip prosthesis, the cost is $8,500. You will only pay $1,600. In the same year you are hospitalized again, you now have 100% coverage because you already meet the maximum copayment amount per year.
• This company has NO NETWORK, so you can use the doctor that you trust the most.
Exclusions (the most important) are:
• Undeclare pre-existing conditions.
• Spa treatments
• Psychiatric illnesses

Are you Irregular in Ecuador and want to be Regular and Legal?

If your visa has expired and you are irregular, pay attention to the following recommendation:

DO NOT pay any penalty at Immigration, because if you do, they will give you 30 days to leave the country. Currently, the payment of the penalty does not guarantee that you can apply for a visa, you must leave the country.

If you are irregular but have plans to apply for a visa, wait, there will be a new date for regularization very soon. After the provision for regularization is published, you will be able to pay the penalty.
