Rick has a desire to make a difference in peoples lives. It is his belief that 90% of all chronic metabolic issues are caused by poor eating choices, habits, and beliefs. He truly believes that “your beliefs will cause you to create or attract situations and or events that you experience as life.” Change your beliefs and you change your destiny…beliefs are thoughts.
Overcoming colon cancer in 1984, without chemotherapy and radiation, watching his relatives, elders, and society suffer from Syndrome X, or Chronic Metabolic issues which he calls the perpetual cycle of pain and misery, he wanted to make a difference. By providing, educating, teaching, agitating, and demonstrating how to become more responsible and make better choices regarding diet, exercise and lifestyle choices.
Therefore, he created Natural Foods Plus, more than a health foods store.

Overcoming cancer is a mission Rick L. Poole is fighting for – not just physical cancer, but also the cultural and societal/mental cancer that takes root and grows around the world, without the right mindset and lifestyle choices. He’s done both, and shares his mission and commitment to change the world, one book chapter, keynote and specially developed program at a time. In keeping with his aim, he created both the M.I.N.D.S. (Motivating Individuals to New Direction of Success) program and the 7 Steps to Become Healthy Naturally programs.
