Get to know us.

We're a crew of like-minded individuals who just want to care for people the best way we know how.

We believe that the times we are living in now demand a big change.

A change in our medical system.
A change in our societal norms and conditioning.
A change in how we treat each other.
And a change in how we treat the planet.

We are agents of change whose mission is to inspire and empower others to live by love, holistically and sustainably, so that we can live in a world where our brothers and sisters, and our planet, are all healthy and happy.

Your Holistic Doctor
Aboutus Image
This is Dr. Brett. He is a holistic doctor with degrees in Chiropractic (D.C.), and Anatomy (B.S.), as well as in Health and Wellness (B.S.) But he hangs his hat on his advanced post graduate studies in functional neurology/neurological rehabilitation, psychoneuroimmunology, cognitive psychology, functional medicine/clinical nutrition, and bioenergetic medicine. Basically, the paragon of mind-body-spirit education.

He is the founder and clinic director of BioModern Health, a new model of integrative medicine that aims to rewrite the books on healthcare and holistic living. He is still currently serving patients from around the world, blending his understanding of the human mind, body, and energy to unlock their potential for true health and well-being

His blend of professional and personal studies, his unique clinical experience, and his charismatic attitude have provided him opportunities to be an authoritative speaker and teacher at events across the country.

Along with his humanitarian purpose for the greater good of a greener, more sustainable world, one of his missions is to provide as much possible value and healing to others in a way that inspires a love-centered mindset and true holistic-based lifestyles.

Barry Kelley
Your Breathwork Instructor
Aboutus Image

Here is Barry!

Barry teaches breathwork techniques to help alleviate and reduce the stress levels in the body that can affect health and the mental state. Barry graduated from South Cameron High in 1972 and he is part of the very first graduating class of Awaken Breath Academy in 2021, then he founded Expanded Growth in 2022.

Barry's journey to wholeness began when he retired from Westlake PetroChem after 26 years as an operator, he came to BioModern using Nexium for 30 years and he had an anaphylactic allergy to sesame seeds. Once he worked with our team, he experienced complete gut healing to a degree that allowed him to quit Nexium and he no longer has to carry an epipen because his allergy no longer exists! This healing created a hunger to learn more about aligning his body and that is where his love of breathwork came from because the healing came full circle in his entire body when he mastered that.

Barry has been married to his 5'12" beautiful blonde bride, Gwen, for 43 years. They have 2 children, Magen and Heath, and 3 grandchildren, Gwyneth, Bennett, and Lyra. They have lived in Sulphur since getting married and their family is very active in our local community.

Barry's favorite thing about what he does is helping and watching people's transformations in the body through breathwork, "It is the most awesome thing in the world!"

No Longer Limited Duty
We partner with them to serve those who served our country
Aboutus Image

At No Longer Limited Duty, they exist to assist our Veterans in their walk to becoming the best version of themselves.

Veterans now have access to many different medical services at little or no cost. However, they do not have access to holistic healthcare at little or no cost, even though these services can help heal the wounds caused by war. Many veterans cannot afford to pay for holistic healthcare services, so they do not get the treatment they need.

This is where No Longer Limited Duty comes in.

They will assist in building a Health and Wellness Team for each of our Veterans that will work together to find a solution to heal the veteran and the organization will pick up the bill for these services at our approved holistic healthcare practitioners, allowing our Veterans to get access to life changing services at no cost to them.

We are proud to be one of those healthcare practitioners!

If you are a Veteran or you know one that could use our help, send them over to

Our Culture

Our culture is one that operates by the philosophy of humanitarianism, seeking to continuously evolve for the purpose of alleviating unnecessary suffering and improving the human condition.

We have an understanding that world change starts at the level of the individual. That the collective of individuals we call communities are where true change must happen first before mass change is ever realized.

We value knowledge and morality; this is our voice FOR the people.

To love one's self and the collective unity of life; this is our message TO the people.

"Be the change you wish to see in the world." - Ghandi

Long story short...

We care about you and want to help you become healthy and happy, for life.

If we can do this for everyone in our community, our community can be an example of change for humanity.
