The Steve Weatherford Show | The Secrets To A High Performance Life

Mar 7, 2023

I’ve always been into biohacking, dating back to my NFL career when I tried supplements, spent time in a hyperbaric chamber, and did all sorts of blood tests to improve my physicality and performance. At around that time I came across Dr. Amen who’d just launched Brain MD


I’d tried adderall which made my moods erratic, and so I went to see Dr. Amen at his clinic with my son. We spent money on brain scans to better understand how my brain had been negatively impacted by physical trauma, and how my son’s brain was still developing. 


I learned so much about my brain and the divine uniqueness with which God created me. It allowed me to shed the shame of the label ‘ADHD’ as I learned how my brain is supposed to work. Instead of choosing chemicals with harsh side-effects that were retarding me, Dr. Amen led me to an all-natural solution. I’ve been taking BrainMD for over ten years now and I haven’t looked back. 


Dr. Amen has indirectly given me Grace in so many areas of my life — and I thank him for that. I couldn’t be more grateful to be in conversation with him today as he shares his wisdom ahead of the launch of his new book, Change Your Brain Every Day. Please join us.
