  1. Homeopathy, which I have been using since the 70's, works. There is no one remedy for a specific problem. It treats the person, not the name of the illness. Your migraine headache, sore throat, or belly ache would have different symptoms than mine. I did not wake up one day and decide I like homeopathy. I tried it when I had a problem that allopathy couldn't help. It worked, so I tried it another time. It worked. I had an open mind, but not a stupid "belief" in it. I am 75 years old and am very healthy. Unlike most people my age, I don't take a bunch of meds, I don't have to run to the doctor often, but would have no hesitation using allopathics if my homeopathic treatment didn't work. The allopathic system often doesn't cure, it might alleviate some symptoms but the side effects of the meds can bring on more problems, which need more meds, etc. And BIG PHARMA makes more money. Homeopathy works to strengthen your immune system so the body does its own healing. No one person has the same makeup as anyone else. The British Royals have been using homeopathy for generations. They seem to do well with it, don't you think?
  2. I buy Premarin cream without a Rx at Farm Guad, Costco, Walmart, and various Farmacias. I really do not remember the cost-not cheap but not outrageous.
  3. There is a world of difference between Naturopahty and Homeopathy. Dr. Elizabeth must be a Naturopath with some knowledge of basic homeopathy. I needed a fairly common remedy recently which she didn't have and I noticed that her supply of homeopathic remedies is very small. Naturopathy works with herbal remedies. Homeopathic remedies can be made from herbs, yes, but it is not her biology. Homeopaths have studied many, many intensive years, and most never stop studying. It is a very complicated course of study. Many people confuse Naturopathy with Homeopathy, because they both do not use allopathic drugs. I am not aware of homeopathic colleges in Guadalajara, but you can check with Dr. Gabriel who has a store on the Lateral kind of across from Villa Nova. I am sure also that there are places in Guadalajara that give basic homeopathy classes. PM me if you want more info on practitioners in this area.
  4. The health food store next to Carlos' Bazaar has closed.
  5. Private messages

  6. The tour was great, I agree. It was very low-key, I enjoyed meeting the other "tourists," the Birria and quesadillas we had in Mezcala were delicious, and it was a gorgeous day to boot. I hope Victor does some other day trips, he is a sweetie.
  7. I sent an email to Victor at the email above but never received an answer. I am interested in going, but need some info.
  8. I moved here from Manhattan and never owned a car, public transportation there is excellent. I could walk or take a bus or subway to get anywhere. I lived here in Ajijic for about a year when I bought my first car ever. I had friends living from Riberas to El Chante and taking buses and taxis got tiresome. I love being able to zip from LCS to the Farmers' Market to HandyMail in one morning. I call Francisco Miramontes when I need a cab day or night if necessary. I LOVE having my car!
  9. I did get your other reply to my PM to you. I wonder if you and I know each other by our real names? I've been here since 95 and you say you've been here since 97, so probably we have met along the way. LaChula

  10. His name is Dr.Gabriel GARCIA, Vasquez is his mother's last name, but the father's last name, in his case GARCIA is the correct way to address him-but, everyone just calls him Dr. Gabriel. He is very knowledgeable. I use him for homeopathic remedies, I know quite a bit about homeopathy, and he is up-to-par. He also does acupuncture, but I haven't used him for that.
  11. When I moved here in '95, there was an earthquake in Manzanillo, I think, that was felt here. I had been under the impression that we were not in an earthquake zone and was very surpised. The next week, a geologist who is still here, Bill Doughlas, gave a talk at LCS and brought charts that show all the reasons we ARE in an earthquake zone. Tectonic plates in the lake, volcanic activity not far from here and other reasons I don't remember. It was an eye-opener to say the least.
  12. When I was teaching newly-arrived, non-English children in NYC, at first most of my kids were Puerto Rican. Then, the Cuban kids started to arrive to get away from "la RevoluciĆ³n." One day we were talking about fruits in NY compared to the tropics. I mentioned papayas-the Cuban kids were scandalized, "Maestra, ud. dijo una muy mala palabra!" Apparently in Cuba, they call the fruit "fruta bomba" and the word papaya has a sexual connatation.
  13. Que dios se lo paque. - Thank god you have paid. Que dios se lo pague means, May God reward you (usually for doing a good deed.)
