March 1, 2013
As a speaker, author and coach, I have dabbled in health and performance for as long as I could remember – but until two years ago, had never really given serious thought to my calling in life or come to a lasting conclusion about what I actually wanted to accomplish and be remembered for.
However, after much serious thought and inner reflection, I discovered that my true desire in life is to equip over one million people with the knowledge and tools necessary to defy the status quo of human health and performance potential, and to achieve peak capacity of physical, mental and spiritual success.
But when it comes to finding such success, you and I are fighting an uphill battle.
The sad fact is that most of us live our lives at just a fraction of our peak capacity, completely powerless to tap into our full potential or to achieve our goals as quickly and safely as possible. Sure, we may have some components in place, such as exercising every day or doing a good job controlling stress, but how many of us have truly optimized our performance, fat loss, recovery, digestion, brain, sleep and hormones?
How many of us have found the ultimate balance of health, energy and life?
So it's time things changed.
And even though I completely understand if you can't join me next weekend for the Become Superhuman live event…
….I've decided to do something that I've never done before…
…and open up a LIVE streaming option for you to come to the Become Superhuman event – in real time (and yes, access to the post-event recordings too)!
I invite you to join me in this journey over an epic two days of learning from the best speakers on the face of the planet…
So besides full access both during the event and the post-event recordings, what else do you get as part of your all access pass to the Become Superhuman live event? Here are the speakers & topics:

Gaston Cornu-Labat, M.D. – “Everything You Need to Know About Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy”
Dr. Cornu-Labat’s consultations in medicine include treatment of nearly any illness, including heart disease, atherosclerosis, COPD, diabetes, hypertension, arthritis, and many more. He also counsels in preventive medicine and health maintenance and optimization, as well as comprehensive bio-identical hormone replacement, originated at Tahoma Clinic in the early 1980s.
His general surgery practice focuses first on whether surgery is really necessary—for example, most gallbladder surgeries can be safely avoided while “gallbladder attacks” are also eliminated. If a surgery is truly needed, Dr. Cornu-Labat emphasizes not only excellent surgical technique but natural “before and after” care for the best and most rapid recoveries possible. He performs gastrointestinal endoscopies including colonoscopy, as well as outpatient body and facial sculpting (“Mesotherapy”), following the techniques of Dr. Lionel Bissoon.
Dr. Cornu-Labat obtained his M.D. degree from the Universidad de Buenos Aires (Argentina) in 1991. His studies in General Surgery took place between 1992 and 2002 initially in Argentina, then Youngstown, Ohio. In Youngstown he obtained his Specialist title, then completed his education at Virginia Mason’s Department of Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Surgery in Seattle, Washington.
With his first years of practice in small rural communities both in Nebraska and Eastern Washington, he worked with a broad range of medical and surgical pathology, performed minimally invasive as well as “open-cavity” surgery, gastrointestinal and biliary endoscopy, and conducted a general surgical practice. During this time his intuitive understanding of holistic medicine developed and matured, with the conviction that many forms of effective healing practice have their place in the holistic care of the human being.
After overcoming a challenge to his basic philosophy of health care initiated by his previous employer, Dr. Cornu-Labat joined the Tahoma Clinic staff to undergo an apprenticeship with Dr. Wright and other Clinic practitioners, acquiring many more of the principles of nutritional and natural medicine and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. As noted above, Dr. Cornu-Labat has become the only truly holistic practicing physician and practicing surgeon in Washington State.
He has also completed an exclusive educational workshop with Dr. Lionel Bissoon in all the techniques of European-originated “Mesotherapy” for body and facial sculpting, becoming the only active practitioner in the Seattle area trained in Dr. Bissoon’s methods.
With a broad and solid education and experience in the physical manifestations of disease and being an avid student of human behavior, Dr. Cornu-Labat observes that it is the process which leads to such physical manifestations what fascinates him the most. “We, health practitioners, at all levels help to reverse, excise or at the very least contain those physical manifestations of disease; however, the cure, the true miracle of medicine is a gift that comes from within. It is our mission as practitioners to facilitate, to guide, to unlock this power; we are tools for the people in their path to health, wellbeing and happiness.”
