CANDi works throughout Mexico and the Caribbean

Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them - that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like. Live each day as it were your last.

You only live once. Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Believe in yourself! Live each day as it were your last. You only live once.

New Clinic Opens in Punta Cana

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment. Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself.

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
