“The solution comes from understanding it’s source and providing a long-term permanent solution”.
Dr. Don Wood’s Story
Dr. Don Wood, PhD developed the TIPP method after spending years researching how atmospheric conditions™ affect our minds and impact our lives. He went back to school later in life to get his PhD in clinical counseling and psychology, to learn how to heal his daughter’s crohn's disease and his wife’s autoimmune disease.
“Teaching people to live with, manage and cope with the daily stress doesn’t fix the problem. The solution comes from understanding it’s source and providing a long-term permanent solution”. “Both my wife and daughter experienced childhood trauma and I saw how it affected their life, including their health. They both had developed autoimmune disorders.” In his search for answers for them, Dr. Wood made the connection between trauma and their health issues. In addition, he recognized the daily stress they lived with and the only solutions provided came from medications. His experience with his family provided the determination required to develop a cutting edge neuroscience approach. A holistic solution that provides immediate and long lasting relief. The TIPP program developed by Dr. Wood has benefited individuals all over the world. “I wanted to create a solution that removed the stigma of trauma. Too many people are afraid to ask for help because of that stigma. That is why we named the program around increasing performance levels. When you eliminate the effects of disturbing or traumatic events, which I refer to as their atmospheric conditionsTM in a person’s life, their performance improves both personally and professionally.” The results have been impressive. Dr. Wood has helped trauma survivors from the Boston Marathon bombing attack, the Las Vegas shooting, to highly successful executives and world class athletes perform at their best.
Marko Cheseto, a double amputee marathon runner, broke the world record TWICE after completing TIPP. Chris Nikic worked with Dr. Wood and made world news by becoming the first person with Downs Syndrome to complete an Ironman competition. The Inspired Performance Institute was built on this simple phrase, “There’s nothing wrong with you, there’s nothing wrong with your mind.” During your lifetime some events and experiences have created some glitches and error messages for your mind, and all you need is a reboot.
Dr. Wood has written two books about his research including the science about how our minds work and why we experience our own unique perspective of the world. Both books, You Must be out of your Mind and Emotional Concussions, are focused on how we can all make the desired changes by allowing our mind to reset and reboot. He has spoken on these topics domestically and internationally. He has been a guest contributor on Joe Polish’s “I Love Marketing,” he has been a speaker for Spartan Leadership, James Wedmore’s Innercircle, Shanda Sumpter’s MasterMind among many other speaking engagements. A podcast guest favorite, Dr. Wood has appeared on over 100 podcasts and many times has been the top 20% listened to show; among some of the great shows, he’s appeared on Dave Aspery’s Bulletproof Radio, SpartanUp Podcast, Unbeatable Mind, Ben Greenfield Fitness, ATP Science Podcast among many more.
