Chase Health Advance eventually repaid nearly half a million dollars to people who claimed they were bilked by Babcock.

Brandon Babcock’s chiropractic license has been suspended
» West Jordan City revoked Babcock’s business license in August 2012 after he was formally charged.
» The Utah Department of Occupational and Professional Licensing suspended Babcock’s chiropractic license by emergency order in April 2012. But Babcock can appeal that decision and could eventually regain the ability to practice.
» In the time since his license has been revoked, Babcock has led seminars throughout the country in hotels from Idaho to Florida, where he touts a nutritional program to reverse Type II diabetes.
» On May 18, 2013, Babcock was cited by police in Chandler, a suburb of Tempe, Ariz., for selling supplements without a city permit.
» In 2008, DOPL issued Babcock a cease and desist order after the agency found he was advertising for his business, offering treatment for depression, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, learning problems, attention deficit disorder, allergies, hormone replacement relief, sleep problems and memory loss, despite not being licensed to treat any of the above. He was not formally reprimanded.
