As a practicing radiologist, Dr. Brown has aided more than 300,000 patients in the United States throughout his career in medicine. The breadth of Dr. Brown‘s professional experience has given him unique insight into the health of the American population.
Dr. Brown has worked as a radiologist in 13 states at both private and public academic centers, including NYU Medical Center and the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. His unique perspective on health stems not only from his experience as a physician, but also from his exploration into alternative forms of health care and his passion for helping others achieve wellness. Dr. Brown gained a broadened perspective on health, while volunteering his medical expertise in Tanzania, teaching medical imaging to local doctors. Observing traditional healings by an Iban medicine man in Malaysia and discussing traditional Tibetan medicine in the Himalayas have further shaped Dr. Brown’s vision of health and wellness. His personal regime reflects his teachings. He has incorporated a wellness lifestyle at home, practicing daily meditation, opting for alternative forms of health care when appropriate and tending to an organic backyard farm, reaping the benefits of farm to table nourishment for himself and his family.
Dr. Brown‘s education and diverse background have fueled his mission of educating others on living a healthier lifestyle and sharing his deep understanding of what it means to be joyful and living life to its fullest. His varied life experiences, including surviving cancer, have helped him understand how precious one’s health truly is. Drawing on this personal experience, his inspiration behind his new book, Toxic Home/Conscious Home: A Mindful Approach to Wellness at Home, focuses on the ways environmental stressors inside our homes are harmful to our health and how to reduce their concentration or rid them from our lives for good.
“Growing up in a health-conscious environment naturally led me to a career in the health care
profession,” Dr. Brown says. “My blended perspective of wellness derives from a long-term
conventional career as an allopathic physician mixed together with a longstanding passion for
wellness and spiritual exploration.”
