Bruce Thomas, M.D.

Dr. Bruce Thomas, MD graduated from the University of Michigan Medical School in 1991 and completed a residency in Family Practice in which he is board certified. He’s worked as an Emergency Medicine physician for 20 years in Indiana. While he loved his time there, he’s developed an interest in preventing illness rather than just reacting to it. He is also currently a fellow in the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, (A4M).  He lives in Brownsburg with his wife and two boys.

From Bruce:
Through a child’s eyes I remember seeing a vibrant old woman…and broken down elderly man. I’m not going to be like that guy,” I thought. But, why not?  I always felt like there must be some things beyond just luck that led to a healthier life, and I feel like I’ve been on the lookout for what they are all my life.

I think my first moment of reflection on health beyond standard medical care came as a teenager when I reflected that Jesus generally must have thought well of health because He healed everyone who asked in faith. Not long after that in 1983 I read “Sugar Blues.” While this was initially motivated by the hopes of impressing the girl who recommended it, the notion that diet could affect your destiny was an epiphany.

In the first year of Medical School in 1987 I attended meetings of ”Alternatives in Medicine,” an extracurricular group which listened to practitioners of Alternative  Medical practices explain what they did. The next year I ran it.

After residency, I began what I thought would just be a transitional phase in my life working the ER. It turned out to be more of a rush than I’d imagined. It was great, but all the while I kept thinking, “I love what I’m doing, but surely a lot of this is preventable.” Emergency medicine breeds preventive medicine doctors. Modern Medicine can be great, but so often it seems like people with biggest platforms in medicine focus on things that drive money to the latest expensive procedure or the big drug companies. Now I feel like I’ve come home to functional medicine where we try to get to the roots of what’s going on and I couldn’t be happier to be doing that at Health and Wellness of Carmel.
