Our Vision – Are you a fit for Dorada?

Dorada is an exclusive community of likeminded people who value healthspan – the quantity of healthy time one lives. Dorada is the intersection of the most pristine natural environment, the most advanced regenerative and personalized health technologies, and inner spirituality through meditative practices and settings.

Environment: The pure environment is the Nicoya Bay Blue Zone – one of five rare regions on earth where people live longer and healthier due largely to clean natural environments. The quality of Dorada’s environment is verified by the recent Environmental Performance Index (EPI) study completed by Yale and Columbia Universities in 2010, ranking Costa Rica’s environment #1 in the Americas and #3 worldwide. The Dorada site borders the Carrara National Park primary rainforest.

Did you know most of our exposure to environmental pollutants occurs by breathing the air indoors? These pollutants come from products and materials we use every day. The air indoors can be 2 to 5 times more polluted, and in some cases 100 times more polluted, than outdoor air. In fact, the US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) estimates that the average person receives 72 percent of their chemical exposure indoors, which means the very places most people consider safest paradoxically exposes them to the greatest amounts of potentially hazardous pollutants. Dorada residences will make the indoor environment as pure as the outdoor environment, with an attention to healthy indoor spaces that optimize wellness. Dorada will use an in-house cleaning service that uses only certified products that have been tested for more than 10,000 chemicals to ensure they are safe and healthy for indoor environments, but also effective at cleaning. Dorada will provide reverse-osmosis filters and source water from artesian rainforest aquifers, install HEPA / ionic / UV filters in HVACs, combination humidity & temperature control systems, ozone “baking” for home sterilization, allergen free spaces via PureRoom™ technology, low EMF living space, and all food on-site will be label-scanned with a process similar to Whole Foods.

Regenerative Medicine: Residents will have access to regenerative and personalized health technologies, lab analyses, and lifestyle and diet programs through the on-site Regenerative Medicine Institute (RMI). Directed by Nobel Prize Nominee and renowned age-management physician and surgeon, Dr. Vincent Giampapa, RMI focuses on regenerating the core building blocks of life – cells. Breakthroughs in biochemistry, genetics and basic biology have unlocked many new avenues to approach health and aging. The smallest functional unit of all life is the cell. Although a person’s cells differentiate into hundreds of specialized types, they all contain identical information and have a core set of similar needs to maintain optimal function throughout our lifespan. Aging reduces the fitness of our cells, consequently generating the conditions associated with aging. By addressing the underlying cause of these conditions, at the cell itself, RMI believes it can make a remarkable difference in peoples’ lives.

Spirituality: Internal peace, lower stress levels, and health are inextricably linked. Spaces, classes, and professionals that promote meditation and mindfulness will be pervasive throughout Dorada. Connection to the earth and nature will empower the spirituality within each resident, and help them to be at peace.
