You know how some of us feel like something isn’t right within us? And we just keep pushing hoping better days will come? Well that is exactly what happened to our founder Dr. Marcos de Andrade, most commonly and affectionately known as Dr. De. After medical school Dr. De went on to complete a research year in the metabolic institute of a very prestigious hospital. Nevertheless, he was being diagnosed by his own colleagues with depression. He just didn’t feel right. No energy, had lost his drive, focus and his body was beginning to not respond to his training and healthy eating lifestyle.
Disruptors and innovators of the healthcare space who combine nature and technology together to bring humanity back to how we were designed to operate. Thus, optimizing performance and longevity so that we may increase health-span and life-span.
That’s when he quit traditional medicine and began to search for answers of why he didn’t feel like he once felt – that high energy resilient young man. That’s where Dr. De went back to the basics and started to study his own physiology, biochemistry and immunology and the impact these sacred sciences were having on his overall human experience. Dr. De soon concluded he was simply out of balance and his body and brain were just trying to tell him that.
The process Dr. De applied to improving his life was really simple. He began by collecting data to see exactly what was happening inside of him. He was able to see the things he had to remove from his life, like bad foods, heavy metals, chemicals etc. He then went on to see what he had to replenish in his blood and that’s where he saw he was having a lot of troubles all the way from hormones to vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants he had massive deficiencies. After, he learned to balance his gut flora which he always had troubles with. He struggled with a bad gut since medical school having many horrible episodes of heartburn which led him to take unnecessary medications. Finally, Dr. De learned how to improve his recovery and get that delta wave sleep for optimal performance.
Dr. De realized that we can’t accomplish much if we don’t feel great and you only have so much time.
As each day passed by Dr. De began to feel better and he began to feel like himself again – and even better. Basically, Dr. De began to feel like a comeback story.
That’s where Dr. De realized he could help more people to feel at their best by optimizing their physiology and becoming their best version, Biohax was born.
Dr.De – CEO
Hi, I am Marcos de Andrade MD, MBA. The word is PASSION! I am PASSIONATE about prevention and performance medicine. This story started with my own personal journey when I understood that the outcomes in my life had a direct correlation with the biochemical footprint. Once I understood that if I improved my health my life could be better I then embarked in a journey to build myself and concomitantly build a system/platform to help people be the best version of themselves and thus The Biohaxs Institute was born.
I obtained a bachelors in Biology from Florida Atlantic University. I then went on to obtain my Doctorate in Medicine (M.D.) in a hybrid program between the US and Europe at the Medical University of Silesia in Poland. I then obtained an MBA from Nova International Business Administration with concentration in Finance. Lastly, I went on to complete a research fellow at the prestigious Cleveland Clinic in Weston Florida in the department of surgery and metabolism.
Although I DO NOT PRACTICE MEDICINE, I am passionate about creating a worldwide system where I can serve the most amount of people by adding VALUE to their lives. My job is to build and maintain a system comprised of beautiful health professionals that are here to serve our customers to a life away from disease and closer to the life they dream of.

Head Registered Nurse
Camila is a Registered Nurse who specialized as a Cardiac/Telemetry Nurse for two years at Broward Health. She graduated from Broward College with an Associate degree in Nursing. She has a passion for learning/teaching and helping others feel and look their best. Camilla believes in finding the root cause of illnesses rather than chronically managing it. Seeing people become excited about their health is one of the greatest moments a clinician can experience and that is what she wants for all her clients.
Dorothy graduated from University of Miami with a Master of Science in Nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner. Prior to working at Biohax, she was as a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit nurse for three years and a college professor for undergraduate nursing students. Her background in teaching ignited a bigger passion to challenge herself by specializing in a field that few learn through traditional medical paths, which is alternative/holistic care. At Biohax, she dedicates herself to helping others reach their optimal self. When not in the office, she can be found discovering a new culture or spoiling her two dachshunds.
Rosys (also known as Rosy), graduated from the University of Miami with a Master of Science in Nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner. She worked as a Cardiovascular Registered Nurse for four years and it was then that she came to realize that passion when it comes to healthcare, is to add value and optimize people’s health and well-being. Subsequently, she decided to leave the hospital setting and began working at Biohax, where she believes the team provides the services of improving the quality of life of their clients. In her spare time, you can find her listening to techno music, on the dance floor, or traveling. A fun fact is that Dorothy and Rosy graduated from the same cohort but didn’t know each other until they started working together at Biohax.
Director of Operations
Bart grew up in a family of “health nuts” and was raised to think outside the box of traditional healthcare.

This eventually led to starting his own brand, Reign Together, which was recently acquired by Perk International. Bart joined Biohax in its second year as the Director of Operations. His focus is driving growth by implementing and improving the systems of the business that ultimately improve the lives of our clients.
