Richard Baywood began practicing as a Naturopath in 1999, with clinics in Brisbane, Port Macquarie, and now Kempsey. He took several years off in Queensland where he studied and then worked as an Advanced Care Paramedic for the QLD Ambulance service. This helped to increase his Medical knowledge, providing a realistic and balanced view of Complementary Medicine. Richard holds an Advanced Diploma of Naturopathy, Diploma of Paramedical Science, Diploma of Botanic Medicine, and a Bachelor of Social Science (Psychology). His philosophy is simple, because health should be simple and something that everyone can have control over. Health is a combination of a balance between the Body, Mind and Spirit. Each Consultation involves a medical history and health analysis involving iridology and traditional techniques used to assess the state of your body. A script involving nutritional supplementation and or personalised herbal medicine/nutritional compounding will be given according to the results of the examination. Additionally, if requested access to integrative pathology services and DNA testing provide powerful and modern day tools which help to uncover a deeper understanding of your health.
