As a physician, business and private practice owner since 1991, community-centered leader and educator, I have dedicated my life to improving the wellbeing of others. With more than 35 years as a family practice physician, I have treated thousands of patients from every disease imaginable, helped families and the elderly cope with difficult and complex illnesses, and held the hands of those at death’s door. If I could find a way to ease their suffering, that was my greatest goal.

Over the course of these years, as I, science and consciousness evolved, I knew there had to be a more effective way to treat and cure patients of disease. In particular the chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and obesity that I saw daily in my years of practice. Then in 2005 I decided to focus on weight management and began a program that I felt would have a direct impact on treating these chronic illnesses. And began a journey of discovery that opened my eyes to the healing benefits that were now possible, allowing my patients to remove the pharmaceuticals they were taking daily to manage their conditions. The positive results continued to present themselves time and time again which now led me to delve even further into the causes of obesity and disease as an aspect of one’s belief systems and the imbalance of the energetic systems in and around the body. So committed to the absolute cure of my patients, I decided to became certified in Shamanic energy medicine to ensure I wasn’t missing a single aspect of the root cause of their disease.

Today, my practice continues to thrive and facilitate the healing of thousands of patients as I have fused the latest evidence based medicine with ancient healing traditions to enable them to take control of their health and essentially cure themselves through my whole being approach to weight loss and age management. As a trained and experienced diagnostician I see my role as a guide helping navigate the myriad of treatment options to one that is aligned with the highest potential for a balanced, happy and healthy life experience for all.

Dr. Brandon Brock is a clinician in Dallas Texas who holds a Doctorate in Family Nursing Practice from Duke University. He has returned back to Duke for continued trained and specialization in orthopedics and also has specialized fellowship training in stem cell technology and regenerative medicine. Dr. Brock also holds a Doctorate in Chiropractic and an undergraduate degree in anatomy. He has a Diplomate in Functional Neurology, Nutrition, Conventional Medicine, and Integrated Medicine as well. Dr. Brock is also a Global Clinical Research Scholar from Harvard Medical School with interests in secondary analysis, survey design and clinical trials. He has a past work experience of pediatrics and neurology and has not moved into a more family medicine and orthopedics role.

In Dallas Texas, he currently serves as a chief clinician at Foundation Physicians Group and Brock Integrative Medicine. He enjoys teaching and providing educational support to facilitate learning for multiple groups and agencies. This includes topics that range from nutrition, neurology, orthopedics and regenerative medicine to pharmacology and governmental policy.

There is a desire to continue into the world of academic leadership upon graduation at a large university while keeping a small practice that is part time. The main goals in the future include creating online lectures, didactic teaching and functioning in a collegiate atmosphere. The major areas of desired focus, is helping those with cardiac and vascular issues.

There are many professional goals desired but some include obtaining a professorship at some point and developing lab markers and entrepreneurial development of monitoring and measuring systems related to health, cardiac function and cardiac educational tools based upon a multitude of markers. Research goals include regression methodology through data to see correlations with various markers, symptoms, conditions and prevalence that will aid towards prognosis and treatment paradigms.

Dr. Brock received the most outstanding functional neurology teacher of the year from the ACA council of Neurology four years straight and two times from IAFNR (International Association of Functional Neurology and Rehabilitation). He also received the humanitarian award from IAFNR. Dr. Brock and is also the honorable recipient of the prestigious Living Legacy Award from Samford Universities Ida Moffett School Nursing in 2015. He has also been the spotlight student at Duke University and is on the Scientific Advisory Board for the Mindd Foundation, Vibrant Labs, and Xymogen Nutrition. His unique blend of clinical and teaching experience along with a background in medicine, chiropractic, neurology, orthopedics, regenerative medicine, and nutrition has created an integrated clinical background that has helped him treat difficult cases and offers comprehensive angles on education and clinical presentations. Dr. Brock is a participating partner and educator at BTB Health Systems, Functional

Neurology Seminars, SNA Technologies, and Brain Chat. He also works as an educator with Functional Medicine Meetings and Dr. Brock Lectures.

In my role of nursing I am really focused on patient education just as I am student education. Information, care, treatment paradigms fall into place with good education and clear communication. The environment and setting that this can be done in includes anything from a hospital, to private practice to events and supportive events about the chosen topic (cardiovascular system). Many ways of thinking can be processed through a system model of thinking which really focusses on the patient and their environment. In this situation, one can easily include the environmental stressors of genetic, inflammatory, structural, and inflammatory mechanisms that surround cardiac and vessel disease. This spans from the understanding of labs to the education, treatment, dietary, and exercises paradigms used to optimize dysfunction and danger in the realm of pathophysiology. Optimum outcomes ultimately include an empowered patient that is educated and has optimized their system at the highest level in which their individual physiology will allow them to have a higher level of satisfaction of overall wellness and function. Determining the cause of cardiac pathology, outlining treatment programs, changing the environment of a patient to be conducive to overall integrated health as well as offering education and a follow through with care is very relevant. A structured system for patient safety and progression under a systems model is fitting in this way of thinking and project undertaking. Following a theoretical application can easily create a linear form of methodology to establish quality are that is repetitive, monitored and checked for patient safety or improvement.
