Our Spine Treatment Centre was first established
in the place called Huayo Ccari, 3840 m.
in the Sacred Inca Valley of Urubamba, situated in the high Andes.
(Google Huayo Ccari.)
The name means “Hanged man” because the last Inca king
was chased down and murdered there by the Spanish.
Here MMU founded an International Institution for Spinology.
It was called “Cuzco Spinal Tutorium” where we tried to educate as
many persons as possible while we stayed there for one and a half year.
During that time MMU also was in collaboration with the
Universidad National San Antonio de Abad, Cuzco.
When leaving on our further journey
we left this Center behind for the natives to take over and use.
The tutoring was done for one and a half year and in three languages,
Norwegian, Spanish and Quetchua.
Norwegian because, amazingly, as many as eight Norwegians signed up
and came all the way to stay with us.
Dr. Reginald Gold from the ‘Institution for Spinology’ in Philadelphia,
was requested to come over to Peru.
He was our instructor, with Marty Coppola his assistant.
We had to grow our own food, which was no problem because the gardens were
magnificent and the watering system, done by the Inca long ago, was superb.
Until we found out that the whole hill was a graveyard when sculls and
thigh bones started appearing among the parsley and the cauliflower.
However. The place was a marvel.
