We do not become conscious of the three greatest blessings of life, such as health, youth, and freedom, as long as we possess them, but only after we have lost them.”

- Arthur Schopenhauer


The Optimal Bio Story 

Dr. Greg Brannon’s initial experience with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) began during his career as an OB/GYN over these past 30 years. Through extensive research and a passion for improving the health of others with an all-natural solution, he designed a treatment that would help patients reach their optimal hormone balance. 

Dr. Brannon felt it was his duty to carry on his findings to better serve the overall health and life of others who were struggling with the way they were feeling on a daily basis. His hard work and determination have helped make Optimal Bio what it is today.
