Vida Manifesto


SCROLL DOWN

Vida Manifesto


Our primary focus is to look at Health with a Holistic approach - by implementing the best of modern science and evidence based protocols, we can correct imbalances and inflammation, prevent disease before it strikes, and build a strong Health Reserve.

  • We believe in personal attention, having the time and the ability to listen, tailoring therapies based on bio-individuality - protocols and products will be based on a deep personal wellness profile.
  • We believe in testing not guessing – in completing a comprehensive analysis to identify the accumulated stress factors that block healing and lead to inflammation and disease.
  • Detoxify and restore your health - reduce and rid your body of toxins and any other stressors in the body.
  • We strongly believe the foundation of health is good quality organic food and making the right choices - pure water, clean air, stimulating physical and mental activities - cultivation of spiritual awakening and fostering of loving attitudes.
  • We believe in empowering people with knowledge and education to become CEOs of their own health.

We don’t believe in a quick fix, but developing new ways of living - Intelligent Living.

Health Reserves


Health Reserves


When we are talking about health – namely disease prevention & longevity - it is important to have some clear criteria that will empower our understanding and most importantly to guide the work towards practical outcomes.

In other words, to have simple and clear criteria that will properly guide our efforts.

We would like to introduce a simple and practical criteria that we call - Health Reserves.

Our primary focus in Prevention & Longevity is building the Health Reserves!  What do we mean by this?

Biomarker Testing


Biomarker Testing


At Puerta a la Vida, we believe strongly in preliminary testing. We think that doing the necessary research prior to a patient or member ever having their first consultation with an expert is the key to being efficient, invested, and most importantly, prepared. We want to get to know you before we can heal you. 

We have created a comprehensive and fully customized Individual Wellness Profile (IWP) for every member at Puerta a la Vida. IWPs are the strategic foundation for designing the healing strategy and Health Reserves build up plan that allows us to work together with members on their new healthy lifestyle changes and goals. By getting to know our members, and using medically safe and smart testing, we want to ensure that everybody receives the proper, personalized care that they deserve.

Our Approach


Our Approach


The Truth

We don’t need to wait for “miracle solutions” to be discovered. What we need is to deliver evidence and results-based solutions with respect to the reality of the modern life. Knowledge alone is not enough: We have to have the courage to break people’s road blocks when it comes to understanding disease prevention and unhealthy lifestyle choices, and we need to find all of the possible ways for the practical implementation of our Health Reserves - Prevention and Longevity program.

The Puerta a la Vida wellness approach is simple: We want to make your healthy living simple, accessible, affordable. We want to make healthy living an everyday practice: Intelligent Living!

The Importance of a natural healing diet should not be underestimated! That is why one of Puerta a la Vida proudly prepares and maintains our very own Green Pharmacy:

  • Fresh Living Organic Farm-to-Table (see more about Organic vs. Non-Organic).
  • Cold-pressed fresh organic juice (see more about)
  • Powerful fresh living microgreens (see more about …)
  • Fresh herbs (see more about)
  • Super fruits of Costa Rica (see more about)

From the Founders


From the Founders


It started with my father. His wealth of naturopathic knowledge, and experiences involving the therapeutic and healing power of foods and herbs, became the foundation. Later, I built on this foundation with personal experiences--moments when I felt the naturopathic approach save, nourish, and enhance my life. As I lived and learned more, I realized that the foundation that my father had helped build became my passion, and as I added more to the building, my passion developed into a dream. And like my father, I shared my knowledge and experiences with my son, Edward, and so we began to build our dream together--Puerta a la Vida. For many years we worked alongside the most accomplished and innovative physicians and scientists, and we defined our dream: To create a truly healthy lifestyle retreat using cutting-edge, results-based protocols.  - Ion Zaydelman, Founder.
