Author, Lyle MacWilliam, MSc, FP Endorses Work of Ladd McNamara, M.D. 

Dr. Ladd McNamara is a Maverick. One of few medical practitioners trained in Western medicine, who has dared to stand up to the pharmaceutical industry; Dr. Ladd McNamara is not afraid to “tell it like it is.” In the years that I have known and worked with him, I have found him to be a conscientious and dedicated physician—one who has refused to buy into the false promises offered by our drug-dominated health care system.

His recently revised book, "The Cholesterol Conspiracy" is a hard-hitting exposé on the drug industry and the widespread abuse of statin drugs. Citing the hard facts of clinical studies, Ladd McNamara, M.D. exposes how a disease-centered industry has manipulated research findings and ignored conflicting studies to suit the bottom line of the controlling drug cartel. As Ladd tells it, the pandemic-like prescribing of statin drugs by doctors duped by Big Pharma has perpetrated one of the gravest of crimes imaginable on an unsuspecting public—a purposeful abuse of public health and safety.

As is the case with anyone who dares to buck the system, Ladd has received his share of personal attacks. What he and others who practice nutritional medicine espouse is an anathema to our current healthcare model: his tenet is that each of us has the ability to optimize our health and longevity through an informed and pro-active approach to wellness—one that does not depend on expensive and dangerous drugs as a quick fix to decades of intentional neglect. As a physician, Dr. Ladd McNamara has returned to the simple truth expressed centuries ago by Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine: “Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.” How “outrageous,” indeed!

We need more "Ladd McNamaras" in this world.

Kelly Sennholz, M.D. on Ladd McNamara, M.D.  

Although I’m doubled-boarded in internal medicine and emergency medicine, I also became involved in the wellness industry several years ago. When I first learned about all the wonderful things possible in this new field, I started collecting as much of the research and information I could to put together a book to help teach others about how nutritional supplements might be used to improve the health and lives of others. Then I became acquainted with Dr. Ladd McNamara and realized that he had already written several books on exactly these topics. Dr. McNamara had put together a series of books that were so helpful to me in educating patients and other physicians on the value of a healthy diet, nutritional supplements, and a healthy lifestyle. He created books that are just amazing; books that are understandable and informative; with references to substantiate the cutting edge information he was providing.

What truly amazed me and touched me deeply, was that as I got to know Dr. McNamara personally, I saw that he was a man of true conviction and passion for helping all people who came into his life. His heart is pure, and his entire work is committed to helping people with their health, and their wealth, and with living a better life. I would say his whole life is truly devoted to that one goal of helping others live healthier and happier lives. I admire Dr. McNamara, and I am proud to call him my friend.

How Has Ladd McNamara Affected Your Life? 

I am a 28 year old Cystic Fibrosis patient who has benefited tremendously from Dr. McNamara's friendship, wisdom and expertise. When my husband and I first learned I was pregnant, we were filled with so many different emotions. It was hard to not think of all the times the doctors had told me that my life would be in serious risk if I ever got pregnant. They told me I would most likely not survive the pregnancy, and suggested the unacceptable. We immediately knelt in prayer to give thanks for this gift, and ask for the faith and strength to go through with our decision, given that all the doctors were against it. Immediately after we finished praying we both said, "We need to contact Dr. McNamara, he will believe in us and help us." His knowledge of how proper supplementation and pregnancy affects cystic fibrosis were things we hadn't heard from any of our doctors. His suggestions, love, and encouragement gave us HOPE and the peace of mind we needed at that critical time. Dr. McNamara truly made a difference, and we have been blessed with a beautiful baby. In my life, whenever I ask my Father in Heaven for help I have found that he usually sends me help in the form of what I call "earth angels." Dr. McNamara is certainly one of those earth angels.

With Love,

(Sharlie, Ryan, and baby Harrison)

"Dr. Ladd McNamara is a true shining star – always willing to share his unique perspective and give selflessly of his time and talents to all. How fortunate we are to have someone so experienced and highly qualified bring credibility and professionalism to our business. Whenever I hear that Dr. McNamara will be speaking, I move heaven and earth to get potential business partners and product users in the room! His highly visual presentation is as entertaining as it is informative and his quick wit and personal perspectives add to the enjoyment of the experience. His presentation is geared to those of us who are not so medically inclined. Everyone can relate – and I believe it is nearly impossible to walk away from his "Power of Cellular Nutrition" presentation without committing to try the nutritional products. It is an honor to know Ladd. I consider him a dear friend as well as a business associate."
