Re: Real life experience Fonasa B with the private system

As far as the prolotherapy...its the real deal. My wife worked for a dr at a natural health clinic in the US for years that pioneered prolo in the NW US. Saw amazing results outside of conventional treatment options. I mean seriously amazing results. Sounds like you are on a great path

Re: Real life experience Fonasa B with the private system

Yes, it seems that Fonasa B has a really good reputation from everyone who has had experience with it and the prices are simply a great value. My wife is going to be using (Fonasa B as well I think) at a private hospital so I can comment on her experience once she goes through it. Question: Is it po...

Re: Argentina Economy, Election, and possible default?

Here is how I explain it to little tourism business down in say Futa or wherever down south, when they ask me how to get more gringo tourists. I tell them forget about it.

Re: Argentina Economy, Election, and possible default?

Puerto Rico and hurricanes, Argentina and defaults...its hard to keep caring when it just keeps happening over and over and over again. It's too bad for Chile...just getting double whammyd by the US/China and Argentina in terms of indirect impact of trade and tourism. We may see yet the USD/CLP appr...

Re: U.S. IRS starting to revoke passports

As the article points out...expats may not get the letter from the IRS. There should be a way to proactively check if you are on their naughty list
