My Journey

I would have to chalk it up to being a miracle…if it just happened once. But twice then three times in two weeks? I knew there was something BIG happening that was repeatedly transforming people’s lives & that’s when I knew I needed to change my career, direction in life and become a chiropractor.

Through a powerful life-changing experience in my birth country of Costa Rica, I discovered my life’s passion of bringing people closer to their optimum potentials. At the time I was a professional athlete and I thought the world revolved around me. But then I witnessed back to back to back “miracles” from our team chiropractor, a little woman who really saved lives. It was after that second “miracle” that I knew there were bigger things in my future than becoming a faster and stronger athlete. Like a flipped switch, a lifetime Olympic quest detoured from competitions around the globe to helping serve others through natural means. After receiving my doctorate in chiropractic in 2004, I served as an associate doctor for one year, before opening Pure Life Chiropractic Neurology in 2005. In 2017, I discovered how great my passion was for restoring form and function while also teaching patients how to achieve an optimal lifestyle at the same time. So, we became Pure Life Neurology & Wellness. And then, towards the end of 2019, I realized "Pure Life" summed up just what our mission stated, giving you the health you need for the life you want so now we simply call ourselves Dr. Pure Life.

Chiropractic Education

While my B.S. in Psychology and Biology was helpful for behavioral modification as a Killer Whale trainer at Sea World (my first career), I never would have imagined how the depth that same skillset would prove to be in helping people as their doctor. My doctoral program quickly brought me to the most interesting field I could dare to dream…the human mind, brain and nervous system. In short, Neurology. After I had gained my Doctorate of Chiropractic, I completed four additional years of specialty training in neurology and became a Certified Clinical Chiropractic Neurologist (C.C.C.N.) followed by achieving my Diplomate from the American Chiropractic Neurology Board (D.A.C.N.B.). Years later I earned my Fellowship through the American College of Functional Neurology (F.A.C.F.N.) and joining a very select group of doctors–278 worldwide–who have earned the distinction and the responsibility of being a Functional Neurologist. This Fellowship consists of Chiropractic Neurologists, Neurosurgeons and Medical Neurologists who work together to pioneer advancements for the new standard in optimal health and performance. I would love to take credit for all the miraculous results my patients and I have experienced but I owe this to God and a good friend. I am honored to have been inspired and mentored by a tremendous man and president of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board, Dr. John Donofiro. He is the reason that today I am a healer, teacher, leader, and doctor of real life empowering results.

Austin's Chiropractor

Board Certified in Functional Neurology

Board Certified in Chiropractic Neurology

I established Pure Life Chiropractic Neurology in 2005 to give Austin area residents the health they need for the life they want.  For some that means ending pain and suffering or dropping 20 pounds while for others it means walking without canes or competing in triathlons. As Austin’s only corrective Chiropractic & Functional Neurologist I have seen that this natural care can resolve a wide array of health related disorders. That said, I respect that there is a time and place for drugs and surgery. However, our practice members are amazed at how the body can heal without drugs or surgery. The common link between all of my patients’ successes is being ready and willing to follow their personalized program in order to have a life-changing breakthrough.

A little about me...

The Borbon Family

I am lucky enough to have been blessed with my best friend and wife, Holly (a nutritional expert in her own right). Together we have three rambunctious and hilarious kids. God has blessed me beyond my deserving with an incredible family, an unequaled country, time to play guitar, an athletic drive and the occasional surfing trip. This is my personal Pure Life.

Just because I am a doctor does not mean that I get a free pass to optimal health. In fact, I strongly believe that doctors should be the utmost examples of optimal health and wellness. While I am not perfect I do my part to create my Pure Life by receiving chiropractic neurology 1-4 times a month (depending on the severity of my mental, emotional, nutritional, and physical demands). This is also the case with my wife and my kids. We do not have a medicine cabinet in our home. We do however take advantage of smart nutrition, quality vitamins and minerals, an active lifestyle and a strong dose of daily laughter. Repetitions of these natural principles are the keys to delivering all that a healthy mind and body was made to achieve. This is central to The Balanced FFL.

I consider myself an excellent listener and hope I get the opportunity to meet you in person to learn all about your specific health challenge and goals.
