Tammy and Bo Bingham
Tammy and Bo Bingham have made it their mission to help as many families as possible after the profound changes the Brain Balance program made in the lives of their two sons and family. In 2011, they made the difficult decision for Tammy and the children to move temporarily across the country so their two boys could participate in the Brain Balance program. Tammy’s husband stayed at home and worked, flying out when he could to be with the family.
Due to the great success for their sons in Brain Balance, Tammy and her Bo made arrangements to bring the miracle of Brain Balance to other families. Tammy serves as the Executive Director of the Brain Balance centers in Utah, Arizona, Oregon and Colorado. Their personal experience with the program, from the point of view of a parent, helps to ensure that through Brain Balance there is hope for every child and harmony for every family.
