The 2nd Opinion - Our Life in Costa Rica Yr #3

I mentioned in my last post that we always like to use natural holistic healthcare when we can, so to that end we made a trip to San José to consult with Dr Stins.

We last met with Dr Stins in Dec 2016.

His office takes walk in patients, no appointment needed.
Dr Hendrik Stins Ham is a Naturopath, Homeopath, Iridologist, Specializing in Herbal Medicine, Nutrition, EFT, Color Therapy, and Holistic Medicine. 
 Dr. Hendrik speaks DUTCH-1st language, ENGLISH, SPANISH, GERMAN some FRENCH and ARABIC. 
Since my brother is here visiting we wanted him to consult with Dr Stins, I wanted to ask him about my eye issues and Lavanson took a tumble on one of the muddy hills last week and wanted to make sure that he hadn't done any damage to his head or neck.

We took the bus to San Jose at 10:10 am got off at the stop for Hospital Nacional de Niños and from there it is only a short taxi ride to his clinic (which is located in Bario Chino)

There was no wait when we arrived and we all met with the doctor together, although it is perfectly fine to see him alone. We probably spent about 45 minutes with him as he diagnosed our conditions. It's amazing how he seems to "just know" exactly what is wrong - no xrays or blood tests or long medical history forms to complete. 

Initially, he uses iridology to get a picture of what's going on in our bodies.
The iris of the eye is an extension of the brain with many nerve endings that connect to every organ and tissue in the body by way of the nervous system. ... Iridology maps those regions of the iris to the tissues and organs of the body and qualified Iridologists use this map to assess its state of health.
Pretty amazing!!!

HOURS:  Monday-Friday - 9am-5pm.  Saturday - 9am-12pm/noon
LOCATION:  San Jose - Paseo de Los Estudiantes, - Calle 9 and Avenida 10 

My prescription

After the consultation treatments are prepared for each individual as directed by the doctor. The assistants then explain how to take each one. This was especially helpful to us as the directions are all in Spanish - so I recorded each of ours -- just in case we should forget!

Unlike the traditional western medicine approach to my eye problem ("nothing can be done") Dr Stins is focused on the underlying causes and thinks that I can be helped.  

Can't hurt right? And we shall see....

Oh and BTW - the cost for the office visit was less than $20. 

Here's a little snippet of my prescription directions
