After listening to this CD many skeptics, like Dr. Ladd McNamara originally was himself, have opened their minds to the possibility that quality nutritional supplements may indeed be a key component of a lifestyle program that helps maintain health and decreases the risk of chronic degenerative disease.

It is important to eat right, exercise, get regular sleep, reduce stress and exposure to toxic substance; however, Dr. Ladd McNamara makes the case that historically, medical doctors have not been taught to recommend nutritional supplements to their patients, and are therefore inherently skeptical to the idea of supplementation despite years of favorable medical studies. Medical education has focused on the diagnosis and treatment of disease with drugs and surgery, and there is certainly a place for medications. There are several medications that have saved lives after disease has struck. However, if we take precautions, change our lifestyles, take quality supplements, we can greatly reduce the risk of getting a chronic degenerative disease and dying prematurely.

Heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, respiratory disease, osteoporosis, Alzheimer's disease, arthritis, autoimmune diseases, and many other chronic degenerative diseases, including the acceleration of the aging process (which is related to the disease process) are all related by one common denominator, ....excessive oxidative damage to cells, DNA, cholesterol, and tissues.

Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, which are responsible for oxidative damage, and can protect cells and cellular structures from damage. Cells are protected, and can then repair themselves, and function more normally. Healthy cells are by definition not diseased cells. An example of a diseased cell would be a cancerous cell. Cancerous cells arise in our bodies on a regular basis, but the immune system is constantly searching for abnormal cells removing damaged and cancerous cells. When the immune system is not functioning well cancer cells can run rampant in the body and develop into a diagnosable disease. Medical studies show an association between vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and the essential fatty acids and a decreased incidence of certain types of cancer. Do NOT confuse this that if you take nutritional supplements that you will never get cancer. There is no such guarantee. Nutritional supplementa are not a treatment, nor a cure for chronic diseases or cancer; they are used along with a healthy lifestyle to promote health.

Medical studies show that oxidation of LDL cholesterol and oxidation of the arterial walls by elevated homocysteine levels (as discussed in the book by Ladd McNamara, The Cholesterol Conspiracy; see also Dr. Wentz's foreword at is the primary cause of atherosclerosis, heart disease, stroke, and death from cardiovascular disease, ....and more importantly, nutritional supplements may do more to promote heart and vascular health than taking cholesterol-lowering statin drugs.

Please be advised that you must NOT make any changes, such as coming off cholesterol medications without a thorough discussion with your physician regarding such medications based upon any materials produced by Ladd McNamara. These materials are for informational purposes only. Do not attempt to self-treat or diagnose. Discuss this information, especially the information found in The Cholesterol Conspiracy with your physician, and ONLY after such a discussion with your doctor should you together come up with an appropriate treatment plan. It is highly advised that you discuss this information with a doctor who has a keen understanding of the importance and knowledge of the power of quality nutritional supplements.

The PURPOSE of the CD by Dr. Ladd McNamara is to help the lay person (and open-minded physicians) to understand the need for, and differences between nutritional supplements, and how quality nutritional supplements may promote health beyond what they thought was possible. Many people involved in network marketing who sell wellness products are using "The Power of Nutritional Supplementation" CD as an effective tool to open the minds of some of their more skeptical potential customers and business partners.
