Hello and thank you for visiting Thrive Health! I'm Dr. Scott Richmond. I graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2005. I am a health coach, dad, husband, and who many people call “the mold guy.”

In 2008, I was diagnosed with mold toxicity, MCS (multiple chemical sensitivity), chronic lyme disease, hypothyroid, and heavy metal toxicity. We were living with mold in our home, which led to a very fast downward spiral of disease.

After years of hospitalizations, massive medical bills, and a slow recovery, I finally discovered the missing pieces that led me to a life-changing protocol that transformed my life.

At the time, I was a chiropractor based out of Des Moines, Iowa. Many of my own patients were also experiencing significant health challenges, so I started teaching many of them the protocol that I had done. In time, women with thyroid issues were getting healthier. Families were detoxing heavy metals from their bodies and finding more energy.

It took years to refine the protocol I now use today in Thrive Health Centers and after hundreds of patients going through this process, I am confident that people who are motivated to get healthy will get healthy through 1:1 coaching.

“After seeing your advertisement about the Thyroid and Weight loss event on Facebook, I called your office and explained I didn’t have a thyroid and wondered if this seminar would relate to my problem? You said it would help.

So far I have lost 40+ pounds but more important I am off 15 medications and free of all the chemicals and toxins I have been putting into my body forever. But, most important I feel good, I am enjoying my life and expect I will be enjoying my life for a lot longer!”

“I have been a patient for a little over a year, and hands down this is the best health care I have ever received. By following my specific protocol and keeping an open dialogue with Dr. Richmond I was able to discontinue taking all Rx meds within 6 months. I would have been on medication for the rest of my life had I not taken a leap of faith and contacted Dr. Richmond. I’ve never met a doctor that is as passionate about his work and his cause, which is to help teach patients how to live a healthy lifestyle, as Dr. Richmond. He’s knowledgeable, has a network of colleagues as resources, and his methods get real results.”

“Dr. Scott has been coaching me for almost 2 years. Based on his wisdom with many clients and his own health journey Dr. Scott has guided me through some tough times. Dr. Scott’s approach in listening and discerning the next step has been invaluable. I’ve had much needed emotional breakthroughs based on his customizing various techniques for me such as liver and gallbladder flushes. In many ways I’m grateful for having Dr. Scott as my health coach.”  Dede
