Nature is the healer of disease. The natural healing force in each one of us is the greatest force in getting well.

~Hippocrates, circa 400 BC

Dr. Brian G. Brown, DNP, APRN, FNP-BC, PMHNP-BC

Doctor Brian Griffin Brown attended undergraduate school at the University of Mississippi where he graduated cum laude and earned a Bachelor of Social Work.

He earned a second undergraduate degree from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center where he graduated summa cum laude and earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

He attended graduate school at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center where he graduated with highest honors and earned a Master of Science in Nursing, which led to two certifications as a Family Nurse Practitioner and a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner.

He finalized his educational career by completing doctoral training at the University of Alabama where he graduated with highest honors and earned a Doctor of Nursing Practice.

Having practiced psychiatry since 1998, Dr. Brown has treated thousands of unhappy and discontent people.

For years, he practiced the not so subtle art of “chemical happiness” with his patients while he was simultaneously on his own personal journey of “chemical happiness” with nine different prescription psychiatric medications.

Nearly 16 years into his journey, there was no significant improvementHe realized there had to be a better way.

Through extensive research and study, he found a new way to feel better, find balance, lose weight, and come off of antidepressants.

He led the way by ending the hold of “chemical happiness” on his own life. Now, he helps others escape the boxes of a broken medical system, and never asks them to go anywhere he’s not gone before.

Escaping Boxes?

If I were a betting man, I’d bet my last dollar that you’re in at least one box right now.

Most of our life is spent in boxes.

Most of them are wrapped in pretty little bows, but what’s inside the box is far from pretty. In fact, life inside the box can be quite horrid, uncomfortable, disheartening, and draining. 

For all practical purposes, we don’t even ask to be put in boxes, yet somehow, we end up in them.

By the time we arrive in our middle age years, we’ve been placed into so many boxes that it’s hard to know what is a box and what is real life.

In fact, our boxes kind of look like those Russian nesting dolls… a box within a box, within a box, within a box.

 Some boxes are good and are there to protect us, like honoring the right of way at a traffic light. Other boxes aren’t so good, like forcing a child who’s a hands-on learner to sit still in a chair all day long. Or, like making all of your decisions in the present based on your past mistakes and the negative voices inside of your head.


Boxes Are all Around Us.


But, the boxes I’m referring to just happen to be boxes that relate to our wellness

For some strange reason, the traditional medical field has many boxes.

In fact, if you put three specialists in the same room together and give them a problem to solve, chances are they would each have numerous ways to approach the problem all based on the boxes they’ve been indoctrinated into themselves.

And, when it comes to getting out of a box, most people are so afraid of the change that they choose to stay put.

They are paralyzed by fear.

They had rather entertain the beasts that they know than take a chance on crawling into another box with a new beast. Sadly, this level of complacency and fear destroys peoples’ health and wellness.


Escaping boxes is exactly what I help my clients do.


I don’t want people paralyzed by fear.  I don’t want people to stay trapped in boxes they were never intended to be in.


I want them to be free!

At Optimal You, I’ve created a community of like-minded and enlightened people who live outside the box.

I call this esteemed group of people Optimal You Warriors.

To some, this will sound foolish and nonsensical, but to those who are tired of feeling trapped and stymied in their pursuit of wellness, it makes perfect sense.

Who are Optimal You Warriors? Read below to find out.

The Optimal You Warrior’s Manifesto

Optimal You Warriors are a new breed of wellness-seeker; they are smart, educated, courageous, and creative.


Optimal You Warriors are keenly aware of Big Pharma’s dark agenda to plunge them into the many boxes that meet the needs of their stock holders and CEOs, and they refuse to be constrained by these boxes.


Optimal You Warriors are sometimes called “crazies, kooks, or quacks,” yet they are unwavering in their pursuit of a sensible blend of mainstream medicine and alternative medicine to give them the abundant and extraordinary life they once had.


Optimal You Warriors take responsibility for their journey, look for solutions not problems, realize that nothing worth having comes without hard work, and are willing to put in the hard work to get the results.


Optimal You Warriors always seek to be the best version of themselves and regard the path to this “best version” as the single most important investment they could ever make because they are worth it and worthy of it.


Optimal You Warriors don’t get frustrated and quit . . . they dig in and fight for solutions beyond those sold to them by Big Pharma’s agenda.


Optimal You Warriors don’t complain or make excuses why something couldn’t be done . . . they take charge because they know they can have it all: a life of balance, a life of abundance, a life of happiness.


Optimal You Warriors seek out the hidden truths of wellness then shout these truths from the rooftops when they are found. One of their many goals is to reach others with the truth of what has changed their life for the better.


Optimal You Warriors are authentic, full of integrity, and don’t sell themselves short just to please others.


Optimal You Warriors don’t listen to the negative chatter put out by Big Pharma . . . instead, they seek an enlightened path to find the truth and embrace this path as a new lifestyle, not some chore that has to be done.
