In his TEDx Talk, Dr. Hall eloquently put the complex nerve, brain and physiology pathways of the body into riveting and provocative facts and questions about how the mind interprets our senses and our changing environment. His presentation highlighted the power of meditation and positive thoughts to shift matter and produce positive change in one's life.

Dr. Hall is a leading chiropractor with over 29 years of clinical experience and the visionary behind PILLO1, a preventative all-natural solution to neck and back pain and sleepless nights, landing him the nickname "The Pillow Doctor." He has intriguing insight into the body, mind and spirit of our human system and culture of change. 

Dr. Hall's talk reflected his unique perspective along with TEDxMalibu's intriguing theme: DESIRE. The event theme was inspired by a number of philosophers and teachers including Thomas Hobbes who asserted that human desire is the fundamental motivation of all action.

"Millions of Americans suffer from chronic sleep, health and pain issues," explains Dr. Hall. "My TEDx Talk offers a fantastic opportunity to further educate and empower individuals to positively change their thoughts, bodies, and ultimately, their lives."

Dr. Hall's presentation is now available for public viewing on TEDx YouTube channel at http://youtu.be/nabXiXfZqFo
