A Meeting with Tony Robbins

Tony Robbins

Invisible Forces Are The Key to Success

“Only he who can see the invisible can do the impossible.”

-Frank L. Gaines

How much control do you really have over your life? This might be one of the most important questions you will ever ask yourself.

We’re all familiar with gravity, magnetism, radioactivity, and electricity. These are all invisible forces they have a huge impact on our everyday life, but these are forces outside of us.

There are invisible forces inside of us that have an even larger impact on our lives. These forces control our behavior. Whether it’s in business or in our personal lives, these forces directly affect our success and failure in everything we do.

From ideas to beliefs, love, values, decisions, fear, and emotions, it’s all controlled consciously and subconsciously by the brain. It’s our brain that makes decisions which ultimately leads to action. In a profound way, our brain takes the invisible and makes it visible.

As you know, it’s been my life mission to help people transform their lives through brain health. That’s why I feel like a kindred spirit to Tony Robbins. He’s also dedicated his life to helping people discover their true potential with his practical psychology methods.

I love that we share so many common values. I’ve read his book, been to his seminar, and have followed his career through the years. When my wife was going through a tough time, Tony’s work actually made a huge difference in elevating her spirit. And as the saying goes, “Happy wife, happy life.” So, that made me an even bigger fan.

Recently, I had the honor and privilege to sit down and meet with Mr. Tony Robbins. He flew into our Amen Clinics office in Costa Mesa, California.

If you’re not familiar, Tony is an author, entrepreneur, philanthropist and life coach. He’s known for his infomercials, seminars, and self-help books including Unlimited Power and Awaken the Giant Within.

If you can imagine Tony is 6 feet 7 inches tall. He towered over me. But the biggest part of him was his heart. I could feel his passion and drive to help people. Tony is the real thing. He’s authentic, sincere, and masterful at what he does.

Tony came to see us for two reasons. As Tony has shared before with his fans, he’s been dealing with mercury poisoning. Mercury Poisoning can cause mental changes including mood swings and memory loss.

He’s also an A-type personality who’s committed to maximizing and optimizing his performance. In true Tony fashion, he said to me,

“I’m a peak performance guy. I don’t want to come (to Amen Clinics) just because it’s a problem; I want to come because I want to take things to the next level.” 

Tony is masterful at helping people create breakthroughs by teaching strategies for psychological and emotional fitness. As our discussion progressed, we talked about how the physical health of our brain directly affects our moods, mind states, our capacity for decision making and action.

Tony said, “I think that when people start to realize there are other things outside the psychological, that there are physical aspects (to the brain). I think you’ve given me a really wonderful gift.”

When Tony told me that he was a fan of my work, I was not only flattered, I was elated. He said, “I’ve watched over the years how people attacked you in the beginning. When you’re the pioneer you get all the arrows, and now I see everybody quoting you, which just makes me so happy. I’ve always wanted to come see you.”

I truly appreciate those kind words because as one of the first doctors to pioneer brain SPECT imaging to diagnose and treat patients with mental issues, I’ve had to deal with a lot of criticism. Despite what most people think, being first isn’t always a good thing.

Even as research piles up showing that SPECT can provide invaluable information in a wide variety of cases, traditional psychiatry has been resistant to using it in clinical practice.

Most psychiatrists still ignore the technology and even ridicule it. As a result, psychiatry remains the only medical specialty that rarely looks at the organ it treats. How do you get where you’re going without knowing your exact starting point? In the same breathe, how do you even begin to heal the brain without looking at? How do you know what’s going on, unless you look?

As Tony says, “What I love about you is getting down to what the real reality is.” And that’s exactly what brain imaging does. It gets down to reality. It makes the invisible, visible. Because when your brain works right, you work right. The invisible forces, or in other words, your brain health, is foundational to your success in everything you do – from work, relationships, school, happiness, and fulfillment.

With all the advances in neuroscience and imaging technology available, you can boost your brain health and thrive at every point in life. Brain health is not just about improving memory, focus, and brain energy. It’s about living the best life you can.

“Let’s make sure the brain is at maximum functional efficiency so you get the maximum capacity that’s available to you.”

-Tony Robbins


  1. I’m elated to see Tony and Dr Amen conversing. What a wonderful mix of wisdom. Only good things can result in this atmosphere. 🙂

  2. Wow! I hope Tony is using proper methods. My thoughts: Dr Shade, Wendy Myers, and Daniel Pompa are excellent. However, they and scientists associated with them have barely scratched the surface at securely capturing toxin in the cell, whether it be adipose in large amounts or locked deep in bone structure or in molds/yeasts. I hope we soon see better tools than just a squirt of chelaters under our tongue or into our veins as best offense against mercury and all other toxins. Tony is big and few tests can verify the efficacy of results stating how much toxin he has and what level of chelation he needs. Dr Amen’s techniques are needed and helpful. But chelation is still very dangerous when pockets of mercury and aluminum are found nearby each other. We need more effective solutions for those of us heavily affected by these two toxins in particular. Lead has been written and posted as a toxin that sets deep in the bones. A chelation administration given today does not selectively choose which to draw out first. Many other toxins exist both metallic and organic. How is a dust cloud gathered best? Flying a thousand pointy kites to capture balloons in the sky is about as effective as today’s tools that need years of repetitive applications to reduce and verify contents of what a person has removed. It’s not a weekend project or even a summer project.

  3. So much new info out there..,and dementia patients, many lucky to have a roof over their heads, let alone nursing care eating the same denatured food and drugged into submission. Good thing there are a select group of people able to get top notch care somewhere.

  4. I just worked an event with Tony Robbins 2 days ago. He spoke of his mercury poisoning & the symptoms he had sounded very much like chemo brain. He said it took him three years to recover. I’m on a mission to find out what he did and if that could help thousands of others that suffer from chemo brain.

  5. Thanks for opening the door. April 2018, I had a quadruple bypass, open heart surgery. Genetic, not environmental. After 6 days, sent to nursing home. What a nightmare. Put in a large room, alone, dark, they were waiting for me to die. Food was not fit to eat. Ever dump a can of spinach on a plate? That was a meal, For 2 weeks, did not have any fresh fruit or vegetables. When I developed pneumonia, begged and begged for lemonade or orange juice, I needed acid. I got a glass of colored, flavorless water. For 2 weeks at that place, I coughed and coughed, choking and coughing around the clock. I begged for a doctor, I needed help. No doctor ever came to see me during those 2 weeks (imagine having open heart surgery and no doctor thought enough to see me). For my never ending coughing, I received one, yes 1 cough drop. I was forced to go to physical therapy, ride the stationary bicycle, even though I could not breath. I was told if I didn’t do it, I would be kicked out as insurance requires PT. Chest X-ray revealed pleural effusion, which over the next month, 2 in facility, 1 in ER, to be drained. Needles and tubes stuck in my back into the pleural cavity to drain 3600 cc of fluid. I was given 18 pills every morning, no antibiotics, no pain pills. A psychologist came into my room and asked me why I was mad. MAD? no, I was frustrated. On day of dismissal, I asked for the RX or my meds so I could go home continuing my therapy at home. I was told NO. Could not have anything. Was told if I felt bad, I should go to the ER. A nurse told me management knew I had no family, so they could do anything they wanted. Note: I am a retired commercial liability investigator, in excellent health and mad as hell. I have experienced what others only talk about and do nothing. Nursing homes should be investigated thoroughly, on surprise basis. Get the politics out and stop dismissing complaints. My experience happened in Winter Haven, Florida.

  6. In Wikipedia I found that Tony Robbins was borne in 1960, this means that he is 58 years old, but in this article you write he is 67…I suspect there is an error in this article. I would like to know what did Tony Robbins learn from Dr Amen

  7. Hello Gerardo, in the blog it was stated that Tony is 6’7”, which was meant to depict his height of 6 feet 7 inches tall. We’ve made a correction to make this more clear. Thank you for reaching out.

  8. Terrible sorry for your ordeal !!

  9. I’d love to come to one of your clinics, but I called and insurance is not accepted. I was unable to obtain financing. I’m trying to raise the money to get your help. I’m a police officer and veteran with panic issues. Thank you Dr Amen and also Tony Robbins. You are both changing the world and making it a better place. May God bless you both!
