Inside Personal Growth with Greg Voisen · Podcast 802 – The Transformation with Dr. James Gordon We are honored to have a returning guest author
I was so intrigued with my first interview with author Tom Rath about his book “Life’s Great Question” that I invited him to return to
In my recent interview with Dr. Kenneth Pelletier the author of a new book entitled “Change Your Genes, Change Your Life” I learned more and
It is very serendipitous that the publisher sent me a book titled “Skinny Liver“. I was recently diagnosed with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease also referred to as (NAFLD). I obviously was really interested in the topic and what author Kristin Kirkpatrick had to say about the symptoms, treatment and nutrition programs to combat the disease.
What is ironic is that NAFLD’s symptoms are not something that you usually feel. As Kristin stated the disease is the silent epidemic. Over 30% of the American population have the disease and many probably don’t even know they have NAFLD. It can be detected through a liver blood panel where they measure AST/ALT. Both of these are great indicators of types of liver disease or damage.
Here are just a few factoids about your liver: 1) 96% water. 2) It is the one of the largest organs. 3) It produces bile for digestion 4) It helps you resist infections. 5) It stores and releases glucose. 5) It produces cholesterol. 6) It is responsible for regular blood clotting. 7) It clears the blood of drugs. Needless to say it is one of the most important organs in our body.
In my interview with Kristin we discuss in depth the NAFLD disease, what causes it and how to change your diet and exercise program to help in reversing the disease. NAFLD has connections to other diseases as well such as Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, inflammatory bowel disease and many others. I highly recommend that you listen to our interview and listen to Kristin about how to treat and hopefully reverse the disease.

We are all aware of the aging baby boomer population–thousands are turning 65 every day, and the numbers of the aging is not going to diminish. The sad statistic is that a hugh portion of this population has the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. People’s cognitive abilities are diminishing at alarming rates, and it has been proven that this can be reversed by our diet.
In my interview with nutritionist Maggie Moon and the author of a new book entitled ” The Mind Diet” we discuss the food to eat and the foods to avoid to help prevent from early onset dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. You will not be surprised to learn that a good portion of the diet is green leafy vegetables and fruits and nuts. That is not to say you can not eat fish, chicken and meat but in much smaller portions that the American diet consumes this protein today.
The Mind Diet has been proven to reduce hypertension and heart disease as well. During our interview Maggie discussed the correct food groups and the foods to avoid. We also get into the menus and recipes that she recommends.
I hope you enjoy this wonderful interview with an expert in the Mind Diet.

As they say you are what you eat, and you really want to pay attention to what Maggie has to say about the Mind Diet.
In all my years of conducting interviews with authors, I have probably never come across one like Dr. Larry Brilliant. He is literally brilliant, authentic and someone who played a major role in eradicating a disease that was killing thousands of people.
In his new book “Sometime Brilliant-The Impossible Adventure of a Spiritual Seeker and Visionary Physician Who Helped Conquer the Worst Disease in History” he tell his story with flair and humor.
In my interview with Larry we get to explore his history as a visionary physician and spiritual seeker. Larry ended up in India under the guidance of guru named Neem Karoli Baba. Neem Karoli Baba informed Larry that he would be involved in the work to help eradicate smallpox. At the time over 43,000 people were affected by this horrible disease, and through Larry’s diligence, persistence and fortitude to bring the doctors and World Health Organization together they accomplished the goal and vision that his guru has envisioned.
Through “Sometimes Brilliant” you are on a journey with Larry and the cast of characters, which include Steve Jobs, Ram Dass, Dalai Lama and many others. You learn about a man and a life well lived, and a contribution to the world that saved and has saved thousands of lives from the smallpox disease.
I hope you enjoy this great interview with a wonderful humanitarian and physician. If you want to learn more about Dr. Larry Brilliant please click here to be directed to his website, or click here to be taken to his Facebook page.
My good friend Dr. Daniel Friedland MD has written a wonderful book entitled “Leading Well from Within” this book is for anyone who is seeking to leverage the stress in their lives and become a better leader in the process.
I know that many of you reading the blog entry are familiar with “conscious leadership” Daniel provides a platform through his book “Leading Well from Within” that gives the reader an entirely new perspective of what it is like to be a conscious leader. There is a clear correlation between leadership effectiveness and business performance. Daniel states that “to lead well from within you need to ensure you have the best driver in the driver’s seat to meet life’s demands”. To become the best driver you need to understand that how your brain reacts to certain stimuli and conditions, and how you are able to learn to control your response is the secret of being a conscious leader.
The difference between being reactive versus being creative is knowing how to reduce and control your stress and removing your self-doubt, while increasing your inspiration. All of this activity occurs in various areas of your brain, and you can learn how to modulate this through being mindful. “Leading Well from Within” is the guidebook for any leader wanting to improve their responses to circumstances and events that if handled properly could become the turning point to improving their outlook about the situation, and the outlook of all those that depend upon a well centered and focused leader.
