Thats funny - my wife showed me exactly that video when she heard about Douglas Heel.
So, now i "researched" a little more about Douglas Heel and his "Be activated" Technique. First of all, this thing is huge , he is holding his courses all over the world , all the time. Its super expensive. The ( unscientific ) health and sports world is praising him. And I cant find anything critical about him !
Now i kind of think that i found the reason for that. First , I still think he is doing mainly BS - therefore intelligent people might not even bother to care about what that guy is doing ( not to mention to make studies about any of his claims ) . Second , Douglas Heel doesn't care about any scientific evidence - its the opposite, like he shows in this article about his seminar on his webpage:
"Too many people get caught up in the mechanism, not the result." – Douglas Heel
One doctor in attendance said he was taught, “if it’s not documented in scientific research, you can’t do it”.
"Stop worrying about being right. As soon as you think you are right, you stop learning." – Douglas Heel
and especially in this video:https://vimeo.com/130889800
Still, if there is anyone with an opinion or experience with that sort of stuff - you are very welcome to share it !
