In this episode of Win the Day:

“The natural force within each of us is the greatest healer of all.”

Last year I was in the audience when Dr. Greg Eckel shared the story of how he lost his 42-year-old wife to Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.

The tragic ordeal led him deeper into the world of regenerative medicine — a journey that began when he noticed the overmedication of children while teaching preschool.

Today, he is the founder of Energy4Life, a wellness and recharging center in Park City, Utah, and is quickly becoming a global leader in bioenergetics.

Dr. Eckel treats everything from brain health and longevity to chronic illness and hormone imbalance. He also works with patients who are suffering from long COVID and other conditions deemed untreatable.

His approach includes: energy fields, brain scans, blood, mind-body, nutrition, genetics, brain frequency, ketamine-aided hypnotherapy, electro-acupuncture, exosomes, and stem cells; light and magnetic devices; hyperbarics, and more.

Dr. Eckel is a regular contributor to major television networks, in demand as a keynote speaker, and author of “Shake It Off: An Integrative Approach to Parkinson’s Solutions.” He also served as the President of the Board of Naturopathic Medical Examiners.

In this episode, we go deep into the technology that’s accelerating wellness and reshaping the medical industry.

We’ll also explore:

  • The defining moment that changed Dr. Eckel’s life forever.
  • What drives degeneration in the body – and his holistic approach to healing.
  • Why the medical system can be the very thing keeping you sick.
  • How to upgrade your daily routine for more energy, longevity, and happiness.
