Dr. John McDougall is a thought leader.  He has been challenging people's thinking since 1970.  He discovered something amazing about people's health while he was a Hawaiian plantation doctor that long ago.  He has been putting it to use in his practice and has the research to prove it.  He currently runs a health and wellness program in CA that is endorsed by the likes of Dr. Dean Ornish.  Dr. McDougall not only alleviates hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, some cancers and other ills…he can cure them.  You heard it right, cure them.  The billion dollar pharmaceutical industry swats him away like a fly but anyone who is willing to listen is hearing him loud and clear.

Maysoon Zayid repeated it twice in our interview, “Just try it,”  Just try it,”  and try it she has.  If Maysoon finds a door in her life she metaphorically kicks out a window and knows how to get herself through it.  While she doesn’t want to be anyone’s inspiration she feels happy for anyone who is able to accomplish anything because of something she may have said.  I found her unstoppable, admirable, and a woman to listen to.  She has appeared on Comedy Central’s The Watch List, PBS’s America at a Crossroads, CNN, HBO, MTV, and 20/20.  She was named one of the 21 Leaders of the 21st Century by Women’s ENews, and a 2013 honoree of United Cerebral Palsy NYC’s Women Who Care Awards and those are only two of the honors that this inimitable woman has received.
