He has been the store Nutritionist at Lori’s Natural Foods in Rochester, New York and a Wellness Educator at Natur-Tyme, a large health food store in Syracuse, New York.

Rick is a trained kinesiologist, using NRT and QRA protocols to analyze the week organs and gland of the body.
Rick‘s interest in natural health started in 1988, when he was diagnosed with a high blood pressure problem. He didn’t want to take medications, so he started studying natural health and cured his high blood pressure with diet and life style changes.
Rick moved to Chattanooga last July to be near his daughter and to restart his nutrition practice in a warmer climate. Rick says that “the body is always trying to heal itself, all we have to do is help it”.
