Location |Puerto Escondido | Mexico

Puerto Escondido is a relaxed fishing village on the scenic Mexican South Pacific Coast, in the State of Oaxaca.

The relaxed surrounding is important to de-stress, to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system.

Puerto Escondido, also known as "The Mexican Pipeline" is a world-famous surfing destination.


Puerto Escondido has a remarkable microclimate resulting in year-round ideal swimming conditions.

Swimming and water exercises are crucial in the healing process.

This ideal climate encourages patients to go into the water and stay there.

Sun availability results in plenty of Vitamin D generation leading to an improved vascular system (lower blood pressure), faster regeneration of liver and kidney functions, and better blood circulation in affected joints.

Another bonus is the availability of high-quality organic food such as vegetables, tropical fruits, roots, and seeds, and medicinal herbs.

The residence used by The Gout Clinic is located on the cliffs overlooking the South Pacific.  The orientation of the clinic allows the fresh sea breeze to cool down the Clinic during hot days.

The sea breeze brings fresh non-polluted air, the closest land is more than 8000 km away.
