William J. Bantz
Chief Operating Officer & Director of Coaching and Education
Registered Natural Health Practitioner, Certified Health Coach
Most people call me Bill or Bill J. and I was a commercial real estate investor / developer and information technology professional for 15 years before I realized I was being called to something more. Being considered an Advisor / Creator and Resource Aggregator, I’m passionate about using those skills to help people design and execute their personal health and wellness goals. In particular, I believe that optimal gut health and the gut microbiome (our “second brain”) are critical in fostering the body’s ability to heal from the onslaught of “health offenders” that are thrown at us all each and every day; things like a modified food supply, environmental toxins, stress, poor sleep, and imbalanced bacteria. As a self-described “gut guy”, I love helping people learn about a healthy gut and the gut-brain connection and optimize their own microbiome to pursue a new and improved level of balance and wellness in their life. I prefer to talk more about you than about me but some people have asked what qualifies me to do that. I’ve always felt like “qualifications” are subjective but here’s the short story on some things I’ve done that have helped me to help others; I’m a Registered Natural Health Practitioner, a Certified Health Coach, a Certified Aromatherapist, a Board Certified Master Christian Life Coach, a former Firefighter and Emergency Medical Technician, a member of several different professional associations and masterminds, and am continually researching and evaluating great tools and resources to help people make the changes they’re looking to make. I live in the Carolinas with my wife and our children. In addition to helping people optimize wellness, I enjoy spending time with my wife, my kids, and my friends, helping my children grow to love God and love people, biohacking my own health for optimal wellness, solving crossword puzzles, and taking trips to the beach.

At BRC, we use a variety of tools including:
- Rational use of pharmaceuticals (that we deem safe based on pharmacogenetic or DNA testing) Click here
- Nutraceuticals (dietary supplements) including some of our BRC supplements e.g. Total Brain Restoration that supports total brain health and recall ability, provides nutrients that support antioxidant and mitochondrial mechanisms as well as protein and amino acids for neurotransmitter production.
- Electroceuticals (cutting edge therapeutic agents which act by targeting the neural circuits of organs and modulating them, that is providing neuromodulation)
