Why Lyme Disease?


Dr. Jay’s wife, Heather, was diagnosed with Lyme disease when she was seven years old. She spent her whole life struggling with many different symptoms, which greatly affected her ability to live the happy, healthy life she so desired. Dr. Jay and Heather spent countless hours, not to mention money, visiting every specialist known to man, only to be left feeling helpless as nothing seemed to “fix” her.

Then, their beautiful daughter Leela was born in 2012. Unfortunately, this was also a major turning point in Heather’s Lyme disease and her health started to deteriorate quickly. This was the “bottom” for them, and from there the research began.


From this point on, Dr. Jay made it his mission to find the answers that were so desperately needed. As a result of a relentless and enlightening journey, he finally learned what was needed to save Heather’s life.

Once Heather recovered, he took what he learned and focused the knowledge into a 5-step plan which is outlined in his book: “5-Steps To Restoring Health Protocol.” Around the same time, they started hearing from people all over the world whose stories resonated closely with Heathers. Dr. Jay quickly realized they had identified a major gap in the Lyme community. After selling their chiropractic business in Wisconsin, they began to focus all of their time and energy on partnering with clients virtually (via phone and video) on restoring their health.

Lyme disease is becoming more and more prevalent in the world and is often misdiagnosed. Dr. Jay’s team has seen many lives changed from clients who have gone through our coaching program along with incorporating the 5-Steps To Restoring Health Protocol into their journey to health restoration.

Our message is simple: No matter how bad things seem right now, there is hope!

We can help you make the massive health transformation you need so that you can live the life YOU deserve.


When coaching with us, you will work directly with one of the doctors and will also have a team of experts working on your case. Dr. Jay, Dr. Scott and Dr. Nick have been friends and colleagues for a decade and meet weekly to collaborate on each of our client cases, and to stay up to date on the latest research.

We all have expert knowledge in working with Lyme disease, drainage, detoxification (such as heavy metal detox), and much more. Beyond that, we each have a few niche areas where we have specialized interests as well.

“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn” – Benjamin Franklin

Our belief is that you do not need “just another treatment”. You need a coach to guide you through the process of health restoration. We also believe in giving you the knowledge and tools you need to continue your journey of healthy, happy living after working with us so that you no longer have to “rely” on doctors for the rest of your life.

Dr. Scott’s client testimonies –

“I have been a patient for a little over a year, and hands down this is the best health care I have ever received. By following my specific protocol and keeping an open dialogue with Dr. Richmond I was able to discontinue taking all Rx meds within 6 months. I would have been on medication for the rest of my life had I not taken a leap of faith and contacted Dr. Richmond. I’ve never met a doctor that is as passionate about his work and his cause, which is to help teach patients how to live a healthy lifestyle, as Dr. Richmond. He’s knowledgeable, has a network of colleagues as resources, and his methods get real results.”

“After seeing your advertisement about the Thyroid and Weight loss event on Facebook, I called your office and explained I didn’t have a thyroid and wondered if this seminar would relate to my problem? You said it would help.”

“So far I have lost 40+ pounds but more important I am off 15 medications and free of all the chemicals and toxins I have been putting into my body forever. But, most important I feel good, I am enjoying my life and expect I will be enjoying my life for a lot longer!”

Dr. Nick’s client testimonies –

“After 6 years of debilitating gut issues, hospitalizations, doctors saying there wasn’t a cure, unable to wean from medication, and on the verge of a life-altering surgery, I found Dr. Nick. For the first time in years I had hope that, given the right tools, my body was capable of healing. Dr. Nick is so knowledgeable, kind, and a true cheerleader. I am ecstatic to say that I am now medication free and doing extremely well. My body is healing! It’s been hard work, but thriving and not merely surviving has been worth all the effort. Thank you so much, Dr. Nick!”

“I’m so grateful for you!  3 weeks in to phase 1 of treating with Dr. Nick and feeling better already!  I cannot say that about any other treatment plans, and there have been lots.  Truly, my hope is in the Lord who guided me straight to Dr. Jay Davidson and his team.  I was 2 weeks in to my protocol, exactly, when I began feeling this protocol kick in!  I was cautious to say anything at first.  But, it keeps getting better and I had my 2nd appointment today and confirmed this was the goal this month.  No more night sweats, energy big time, loosing water weight, sleeping, breathing through my whole nose (it’s large enough you wouldn’t think that would be a problem, ha!) less gunk in my throat, clear thinking, unplugged ears, thirsty again (so awesome), not eating the whole kitchen, not exhausted walking up the stairs, less bloating, I could go on.  I’m beyond grateful for this and I have 8ish months left of my protocol.  The future is bright!”

“I don’t know if anyone will read this who can benefit from it, but will try anyhow. Some time back I learned of Dr. Jay and felt he could help me with my health issues. I had listened to him talk enough that I felt comfortable working with him. After contacting Dr. Jay he recommended I work with Dr. Nick. I was scared to work with someone I knew nothing of. What if Dr. Nick is snappy and impatient like some other people I’ve met? Today I can tell you I have found Dr. Nick very calm and patient! I will also say I have found Dr. Scott very patient as well, when I had a major issue doing an order and he was not at all at fault for the issue. I will put in a good word for any of Dr. Jay’s doctors!”
