Dr. Richard Powers, DC
Hello! My name is Dr. Richard Powers and welcome to HealthCoachDoctor.com.
I created this website to provide my clients and the general public with an authentic and reliable healthcare resource, containing trustworthy guidance and useful links to help them learn more about what truly and predictably creates health.
The website also serves as an introduction to my services, as a Holistic Primary Care Physician and Chiropractor.
Why consult a Holistic Physician?
It is often challenging for people to know who and what to trust when it comes to their healthcare guidance. They are bombarded with tips, programs, and advice from the media, friends, family, the internet, as well as from various healthcare practitioners, all with sometimes very different answers to their questions.
Many have shared with me that they are often more confused than helped by the wide range of contradictory opinions and advice, and with good reason. Here is why the "recommendations" are so varied, and range from helpful to potentially harmful:
So, it is understandable why so many people are led to decisions about their health based on ill advice or incomplete information, producing limited, and potentially harmful, results, and expenses they can't afford or didn't expect.
Expert Guidance + Proper Support = Results
While accessing authentic information is beneficial, my experience suggests that most people need assistance with uncovering the underlying causes of their health condition. They also require some personal guidance, monitoring of their progress, and on-going coaching, to sustain their efforts, and ultimately, to help them reach their health goals.
It is with this in mind that I offer the most authentic and evidence-based diagnostic testing, nutritional advice, treatment options, and educational tools available, to safely and efficiently promote healing and prevent disease.
As a Holistic Primary Care Physician, I also oversee all aspects of one's health, clarify additional treatment and diagnostic options, analyze and interpret any lab and testing results, and refer to other medical specialties and alternative modalities, as indicated.
Evidence-based, Wholesome Guidance
Recommendations I share on my website, as well as with my clients in consultation, are predicated on the most current, valid, and evidence-based medical and nutritional research.
My suggestions are also based on observing my clients' response to care over the past thirty years, and the result of on-going collaboration with some of the finest traditional and non-traditional medical minds and hearts in healthcare today.
I wrote each article with the emphasis on safety, practicality, and effectiveness, with the ultimate goal being that this information will assist people in making better, more informed decisions about their health.
My hope is that these articles and direction (and links within) will reveal new possibilities for safely and predictably improving one's health and quality of life, while minimizing much of the unnecessary suffering and early demise that is far too common today.
Why is my approach so effective, even when others' haven't been?
I utilize the principles of Functional Medicine, which focuses on looking below the "surface" where the true causes of illness originate.
Functional Medicine is personalized, science-based healthcare that deals with primary prevention and underlying causes of symptoms and chronic disease.
A core aspect of my approach is to teach, inspire, and support you in improving your health and quality of your day-to-day living through the use of the most beneficial and efficient health interventions and educational resources available today.
