About Dr. Richard Picard
A native Rhode Islander, Dr. Picard grew up witnessing health-related issues with his family, always believing there was a better way of achieving good health. His personal story began with his own battle of childhood allergies, asthma and eczema. He witnessed his mother go through a series of health challenges and illnesses, such as spinal problems, fibromyalgia and IBS. This was the motivation that got Dr. Picard interested in health and wellness.
After attaining his undergraduate pre-med requirements, he attended the National University of Health Sciences and graduated as a Doctor of Chiropractic in 1990. After being in practice for a number of years, Dr. Picard went back to school and attended the University of Rhode Island’s Nutrition and Food Sciences program. He also attained a national certification as a nutritional consultant from the American Association of Nutritional Consultants. Through his education and training in chiropractic and nutrition, Dr. Picard later overcame his allergies, asthma and eczema on his own and has helped thousands of patients achieve better health.
