I got an MRI done on my brain to rule out some causes for some lingering issues from my gran mal seizure in mid 2019. I had it done here in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. I share some tips and the place I used in the video, plus cost and a bit of my personal journey of how Mexico has helped me heal so much. The results are that I’m clear of any brain issues which is real helpful to narrow down my last remaining issues.

I got an MRI done on my head to rule out some causes for some lingering issues from my gran mal seizure in 2019. The results cleared me about some potential causes which was great news.
I went to Dres. Ojeda Resonancia Magnetica and it cost US$250 and took an hour. It was a Craneo Simple scan. Bring a robe and blanket, the MRI room is quite chilly.
The technician only knows Spanish so bring an interpreter with you if you are uncomfortable with speaking medical Spanish. My local assistant drove me there
They give you the negatives and all the medical imaging files on a CD. I couldn’t read files on my MacBook so I went to Postdicom.com and opened up a free account so I could download graphics and videos which I used in this video.
I also love my chiropractor who has been the most helpful in my recovery Dr. Pierre-Alexis De Saint-Prix.
Expat Rebel host Christopher Sherrod is an American Expat currently living in Chixculub Yucatan Mexico on the beach.
Expat Chris is from the San Diego, CA area and first came to stay in Mexico in October 2016 a month before the US Presidential election. He and his love choose Playa del Carmen due to a friend getting married a month later at a nearby resort. The trip was the start of slowing traveling around the world. Chris had a health scare in the US and choose to live out his remaining days slowly seeing the world.
He learned how to chill out living in Mexico and also got some alternative health care that changed his health outlook. Mexico helped him recover and live life to it’s fullest.
They heard that the Yucatan Beach communities had lots of beach homes which all of Quintana Roo have barely any so choose to move to Chixculub.
Chris got into filmmaking as a hobby while recovering from two brain seizures and started sharing his Expat Life. Expat Rebel came out of that.
