On Today's Brian The Hammer' Health & Wellness Show Brian welcomes:

-Papa Spyk, an Ex-Professional Rugby Player, Top International Model, Hollywood Actor & Stuntman. An overly intelligent chld, trapped in a hoplessly dysfunctional world. He lived life on the edge, a lifetime of steroid and drug abuse until he suffered a near death experience as his heart exploded, literally. He now has a very large portion of his heart made out of a suprisingly functional artificial heart . He was told he would never walk again, be paraplegic, never father a child, he spent 2 years in bed, paralyzed from the waist down, unable to move or do anything for himself, he was so weak he couldn't lift his arms off the bed or his head off the pillow. All he could do is stare at the ceiling and he spent his days counting the tiles on the ceiling back and forth, nonstop just to keep his mind occupied and to this day he still counts everything, every step he takes, every mouthful of food he chews and everything around him.

He told his Father no matter the cost he wanted the best Physio-Therapist, he wanted to teach himself to walk again. His Father replied saying Spyk, your legs are dead, they wanted to amputate them and the Surgeon told you, you will never walk again and Spyk replied "Yes I will" He started Therapy, the most painful thing he ever experienced. After 1 1/2 gruelling years of work he walked again and truly felt he had a future for the first time in a long time. He now walks with a limp as his left leg is totally paralyzed and his right leg at 60%, but he is walking...
