For more than forty years, Dr. Richard Powers has been serving clients as their holistic primary care physician and chiropractor. Known as the “peoples’ health advocate,” he has extensive expertise in whole-person health and genuinely cares about self-advocacy for wellness. His broad base of knowledge, training, and experience enables him to provide a unique service that combines education, guidance, support, and proven natural medicine and treatment. As an integrative physician, researcher, and instructor, he draws from the latest advances in medicine to deliver wholesome and scientifically sound guidance, there by empowering people to make better, more informed decisions to regain, maintain, and protect their health.
Dr. Powers completed his pre-medical education at Tulane University and received his doctorate in chiropractic medicine in 1980, graduating summa cum laude and salutatorian of his class. He established the Holistic Healing Center in Atlanta, Georgia in 1984, co-founded the Holistic Medical Center in Stuart, Florida in 2004, and in 2020, he established Intelligent HealthQuartersTM in Stuart, Florida, where he currently practices today.
He is also a founding member of the Xymogen Medical Advisory Board and Thought Leaders Council and is a scientific/medical advisor for Neurohacker Collective. Other achievements include teaching courses to physicians on integrative approaches to managing chronic, degenerative disease, presenting as a health expert on television and radio talk shows, and contributing to the break through book Shape Shift: The Shape Intelligence Solution by Drs. Kelly and Percival.
Over the past several years, Dr. Powers has transitioned from full-time to part-time practice, shifting his time and energy to the development of Intelligent Health®—an online, trustworthy, learning resource and shop where people may receive wholesome health guidance, vetted product and supplement recommendations, and safer, alternative strategies to regain and protect their wellbeing.
In support of his mission to serve the public at large with access to more affordable healthcare, Dr. Powers also created Intelligent SelfCare™–self-implemented programs to support foundational, restorative, and condition-specific healthcare needs. Intelligent SelfCare™ guidebooks accompany these programs and provide insightful knowledge and practical advice on optimizing one’s wellbeing and reducing disease risks. A valuable and rare resource, these guidebooks authored by Dr. Powers are infused with wisdom gleaned from decades of research and success with his clients. They contain an array of key diet and life style recommendations, supplement protocols, and healthcare instruction, similar to what one might receive within a one-on-one appointment with Dr. Powers.
A pianist and composer, Dr. Powers recorded and published “Mirror Images,” a collection of original, “new age,” solo piano compositions. He has been playing semi-professionally since 1987 and frequently performed for the infirmed, disabled, and mentally challenged at Emory Medical Center in Atlanta and at many other assisted and full-care facilities in Connecticut, Georgia and Florida.
Other interests include personal growth, exploring, being in nature, birdwatching, music, dancing, comedy, archery, golfing, swimming, traveling, and spending time with family, friends, and his pets.
He currently resides in Jensen Beach, Florida, with his wife, Liz, and their fur family—their dog “Pepe” and cat “Razz.”
