Many of the NIHA doctors refer to Scott Richards to support their patients during treatment and detoxification. Scott is trained in many holistic diagnostic techniques and healing therapies which support  the electrical regulation of the body, which represents the second level of healing. These techniques and therapies support the patient by  calming the autonomic nervous system and gaining insight into underlying issues, which enhances healing on a deeper level.

Further, these techniques are especially useful during treatment for detoxification, heavy metal and amalgam removal, allergies, chronic illness, pain and on-going health issues that do not resolve. They are also helpful when a "quick solution" may be most effective; erchonia laser can help ease pain in a new injury, and allergy elimination therapy may calm the autonomic nervous system.

Assessments and Holistic Therapies:

Autonomic Response Testing, ART: A highly effective biofeedback assessment technique to determine disturbances in the body and possible remedies. It is an advanced form of muscle testing that can help identify root cause issues and where to focus therapies.
Allergy Elimination Therapy, AET: A non-invasive, pleasant biofeedback technique used to identify and desensitize the body to allergens
Emotional Transformation Therapy, ETT: A  non-invasive, mind-body therapeutic approach developed by Stephen Vazquez, PhD. It involves the use of frequency, color, and multi-directional eye movements to bring about a deep and lasting change and healing.
Erchonia Laser Therapy: Cold laser therapy to treat pain and range of motion, used by many athletes for peak performance.
Color and Light Therapy: To access and help resolve underlying sub-conscious psycho-emotional issues.


Scott Richards remarkable results

"Hi Scott, I'm providing you a follow-up on the results of the first Erchonia Laser treatment. Well I am happy to say it’s working – more than just working, the results are absolutely remarkable!
At first I thought it wasn’t going to help at all. I started to feel really lousy after leaving your office. When I got home around 7:30PM, I immediately went to bed (which is highly usual for me). I slept miserably – I felt feverish all night, the cup of my left heel was hot (where I have the scar from the tendon surgery) and I was experiencing sharp and dull pains on the right side of my body from mid-calf to shoulder. It was so uncomfortable I got up out of bed @ about 1:00AM and did not return to bed until around 3:30AM. I thought it must be the laser treatment and questioned what I had done to myself.
When I awoke on Friday morning at 5:45AM - my usual time to get ready for work; something felt really different in my knees. The pain in my left knee was barely noticeable except for around the edges of the areas I had been complaining about; and in my right knee the pinching sensation from the torn meniscus was gone.That day I was able to walk up and down stairs with very little pain. Rising from a sitting position was also less difficult.
Since Friday, my condition has only gotten better. I can walk up and down stairs without caution and any really bothersome pain. And rising from a sitting position is also much better. I don’t how long the treatment(s) are supposed to last, but I am really interested in developing a long-term treatment plan that will encompass traditional medicine, laser, prolotheraphy and possibly PRP."
