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.”
