My special guest this episode is Remington Splettstoesser, the host of Deeper Energy Podcast. I had a fantastic time connecting with Remington as a guest on his podcast and I'm so glad he returned the favor of being a guest on mine.

Remington is an American ex-pat living in Germany who puts family first, then Jiu-Jitsu and Podcasting. I had fun picking his brain to see what his experience as been like.

2:00 When and why did he decide to move to Germany?

9:00 Where did you move to and how long did it take to learn the language?

17:00 Why does he think living in Germany has affected how emotional he is?

25:00 Would he ever move back to America?

32:00 Why did he change the name of the podcast? What has he learned from it? Why does he do it?

We also talk about Wim Hof, being present, sharing vulnerabilities, and why he loves jiu jitsu.

I was honored to speak with Dr. Mark L. Gordon from Millennium Neuro-Regenerative Centers. His protocol was my first step in recovering from traumatic brain injuries and one of the most important. He has transformed the lives of so many men and women, both civilians and the those who are serving or have served in the armed forces. I appreciate him taking the time to share his knowledge.

Dr. Gordon answers my questions:

(2:25) How much of the population could benefit from having their hormones regulated?

(8:50) Does your typical family doctor properly analyze blood work? What does Millennium do differently?

(17:35) How important is diet? Does it affect the success of treatment?

(22:45) What is Clear Mind and Energy? How is it able to curb my caffeine consumption? Can caffeine cause more inflammation?

(30:50) How does the medical community respond to his message?

(34:20) In 5, 10, 15 years will the average person be able to go to their doctor and be properly treated for excess inflammation?

  (46:00) Would neurofeedback and other treatments be as effective if hormones aren’t regulated first?

(50:00) We discuss the great documentary Quiet Explosions and the Warrior Angel Foundation

He also shares how they have had success in reversing Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and tinnitus, along with so many other issues.

If you or a loved one want to improve your brain, and overall, health, check out his website for a doctor near you. The site also has so many amazing supplements that I highly recommend as well.

It's been an exciting week. The English and German hardcovers of TBI or CTE arrived in time for the Frankfurt Book Fair. So did the new Try Not to Die face mask which looks and feels awesome.

I ran into a few problems on the German market side of things but am getting them squared away and I'm also about to launch my first German newsletter.

The rest of the week was spent lifting weights, doing yoga, and killing characters in TNTD: In the Wild West.

My special guest is Gary Roberts, the host of the Good Dudes Grow podcast, a Firefighter, and Cannabis / CBD Advocate.

Here is Gary's story:

From physical pain to the emotional pain of losing my daughter and father in the same year to opioids. To growing a Hemp CBD Company and Recovery and Research Center based on plant medicine. I talk to physicians, Professional Athletes, and entrepreneurs in the world of Hemp, Cannabis, and Psychedelics to get their view on the future of a new medical revolution.

My CBD discovery started out as a selfish journey looking to help my CrossFit Master Competition career but then realized that my daughter had a dependency on opiates that lead her down a path of using heroin.

I then realized that this plant could help her overcome her addiction. Unfortunately, the law and legislation were not on my side, and before I could get the product that was safe and viable, she lost her battle, losing her life.

She was on life support until her 27th birthday. That day my wife and I decided to let her go. She was always the type of person who wanted to help others, which even showed her death. To our surprise, she was an organ donor, and she saved someone else’s life with her own.

At that point, my CBD / Cannabis relationship changed to one of helping others in addiction and my fellow brothers and sisters in the fire department.

After a fantastic weekend selling books at Awaken the Spirits, I struggled with feeling overwhelmed and not getting enough work done furing the week. Fortunately, a few talks with friends helped me swtch my perspective and look at taking time for myself physically and mentally as an important type of work. Instead of looking at books as difficult challenges, I need to take my time with each one and enjoy the process, remembering how much fun it to write.
