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 …

Joint Pain & Arthritis IV Therapy- Collagen and Vitamin C

Joint pain and arthritis are conditions that a significant majority of the population will face in their lifetime. The pain is usually attributed to inflammation and poor joint health due to malnutrition.

Collagen can help to support the strength and flexibility of the tendons and ligaments and aid recovery after exertion alongside vitamin C; the benefits of collagen might be even further heightened.

Collagen is a protein that plays a significant role in building the body’s structures. When it comes to muscles, ligaments and tendons, collagen provides elasticity, which allows the tissues to stretch.

Vitamin C plays several important roles throughout the body, many of which relate to cell protection, growth and reparation. In addition, it is a vital vitamin for the formation of collagen. Enzymes that are dependent on vitamin C work to combine glycine and proline to trigger the body’s initial phase of collagen production. That is why vitamin C  and collagen together can ensure maximum benefits.

One of the main benefits of collagen and vitamin C  is to help those suffering from regular joint complaints and pain by stopping the symptoms from worsening and becoming a lifelong medical issue.

It strengthens cartilage as collagen is a crucial …

What is glutathione IV infusion therapy?

Glutathione is a tripeptide—a combination of three amino acids: cysteine, glycine, and glutamine. It’s present in most of the cells in our bodies, though it’s most often found concentrated in the liver.

Glutathione contains a sticky sulphur chemical group that collects all the harmful molecules in your body and neutralizes them. These are called free radicals; when they’re eliminated, your immune system gets a massive boost.

Benefits of glutathione
• Prevents chronic illness
• Slows the aging process
• Boosts athletic ability
• Controls inflammation
• Detoxifies the liver

For all its benefits, glutathione struggles with one thing: getting absorbed into our bodies. Oral glutathione supplements are a start, but enzymes in our stomachs immediately begin to dissolve the bonds holding the three amino acids together. And without those bonds, they won’t be absorbed into our systems.

When you take glutathione intravenously through IV infusion therapy, though, it goes right into the bloodstream.

IV Therapy is a way to get the nutrients you lack into the bloodstream. IVs are excellent at boosting energy, detoxifying your body, balancing your immune system, and reversing the aging process.

Cost of IV $50 + …
