Program are all focused on the message of true health through adequate and proper nutritional supplementation.

Ladd McNamara, M.D. is dedicated to helping people live healthier, happier lives, and reducing the risk of chronic degenerative diseases first and foremost through education.  Dr. McNamara focuses on the helping others to use proper nutritional supplementation, in addition to other lifestyle changes, so that they may enjoy more energy, a better sense of well-being, and most importantly to reduce the risk of chronic degenerative diseases that cause suffering and premature death.
