Dr. Ladd McNamara Comments on USANA being a FDA-Regsitered Facility

Dr. Ladd McNamara has long used and endorsed the high quality nutritional supplements and personal care products manufactured and distributed by USANA Health Sciences, Inc.  Here's another reason to consider making these products are part of your daily life.  Although USANA Health Sciences (NYSE: USNA)  has always voluntarily held itself to the highest standards of good manufacturing practices, with quality and research that no other supplement-manufacturing facilities performs, USANA has the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's highest "Drug Establishment Registration" for supplement manufacturing facility.  This allows USANA to manufacture over-the-counter (OTC) drugs, a standard well above what is required in the dietary supplement industry.  This voluntary registration proves USANA's commitment to continue to produce the highest quality products for both safety and efficacy.


LEN CLEMENTS (shown here), has been proven correct!  The group of con men and their co-conspirators were found guilty of running a scam.  The ring leader, the "reformed ex-con," who did time for his ZZZZ Best Carpet Cleaning scam, once again convicted and sentenced to securities fraud as he and his team targeted publicly-held companies in order to enrich themselves.  Daily News Article About Barry Minkow's Scam

Len Clements exposed their agenda, which can be read here:​ocs/minkowmedialetter.docx

Barry Minkow created the San Diego-based, ironically-named, "Fraud Discovery Institute," to uncover fraud.  It appears that old Barry could have found the biggest fraud of all merely by lining his office with full-length mirrors.  But, since Barry Minkow and his "FDI" (how clever) was not trying to find fraud, but perpetrate it while cloaking himself by posing as a "fraud investigator," no mirrors were needed.  Barry Minkow spearheaded  "Team Minkow" and its conspirators, that included a hedge fund manager, another ex-con and stock-shorting supporter, Sam Antar ... as well as a paid "forensic accountant fraud-investigating" blogger, named Tracy.   In all, there appeared to be a core group of 5 who shared and perpetuated Internet buzz to shake the confidence of stock holders of the public companies they targeted, ... all in the name of "truth."   This was the background for his scam and the core players.

Of course, the attacks on the public companies came AFTER the scamsters purchased "put options" on the public company, ...essentially, buying insurance on the stock price going down.  Of course the stock price would go down if you attacked it with lies, twisted truth, unfounded accusations, and paid people for their testimonies, and blogged negative information.   And to top it off, trump up unfounded lawsuits!  What a scam!  The truth was irrelevant at worst and relative at best.  It seemed their motto was, "whatever it takes to get the stock price to go down."  This was the scam to enrich themselves.  It worked, ...for a few years anyway.    

However, this scam is called securities fraud, and it is a federal crime.   Barry Minkow was found guilty (again) and admitted to his scam against Lennar Construction ... the same tactics used against USANA Health Sciences in 2007 - 2008.   Team Minkow hurt many people, including scamming people and companies out of hundreds of millions of dollars.  His damage and fraud is so great, he may actually be the world's first "anti-billionaire."

Len Clements, as well as many others had suspected all along this was about shorting the stock, as their allegations were found to be false or twisted ...i.e., completely fabricated.  What does it take to stop a sociopathic liar and fraud-busting fraud?  LA Times Money Blog: Barry Minkow Sentenced for Securities Fraud

What of the self-proclaimed, "forensic accountant fraud investigator" and her "Fraud Files?"  Does she list the crimes and scams of Barry Minkow?  Does she list her participation?  Does she acknowledge that she knew of the fraud?  No!  She flat out denies she knew anything of the fraud!  What?  A "forensic accountant fraud investigator" not being aware of the fraud she was so complicit in perpetuating?  Like some have asked, "is she a liar or the world's worst fraud investigator?"  Imagine con men perpetrating a con?  Who would have thunk it?  Apparently, not Tracy.

Here's her denial, and the sentence that states, "Tracy Coenen only took $50,000 for her part in the Lennar caper.  The judge in the Lennar case found that Tracy Coenen and Sam Antar deleted (destroyed) emails to and from Minkow."  iInvestor Village Report about Tracy Coenen's Denial and Comments

Coenen said she knew 5 years ago (2007) when she linked up with Minkow that she was putting her reputation, and that of her one-person company, Sequence Inc., at risk.  How's that working for her now that Minkow has been sentenced for securities fraud?  Tracy Coenen Admitted her Reputation Was Linked to Barry Minkow

Why destroy evidence if you're innocent?  Why hide anything if you didn't know about the fraud?  What was Tracy's agenda?  Maybe to keep her friends and benefactors fat and happy with plenty of money rolling in by perpetuating information and disinformation on her blogs that would continue to short the stock of the companies they targeted for their scam.  

It's a sad day for America, and others around the world, when you cannot trust the "Fraud Investigators" not to be the fraud perpetrators.  It makes you wonder, what does Tracy see when SHE looks in the mirror? 

Who knew when Dr. Ladd McNamara received his medical doctorate (M.D.) in 1989, board certification in 1995, and then after retiring from the practice of medcine in December 2003 to enter the wellness arena, ...that in 2007 he would find himself caught in the middle of a twisted and well-coordinated scam to short USANA's stock, and a scam that truly had nothing to do with him at all? 

It's clear that the ONLY reason to even attack Dr. Ladd McNamara was to undermine the confidence in USANA stock holders so that Team Minkow could benefit from their greed.  Tracy was paid to participate in the scam.  She played her role well.  

When Barry Minkow gets out of prison ...again ... will he emerge reformed ... again?   People bought the lies once, ... then twice ... will he pull it off a third time?  Time will tell.

"Dr. Ladd McNamara is the rarest of physicians ...a fellow ob/gyn (although now retired) -- who has dared to challenge the status quo in women's health and give women the information they need to get well and stay well. His important work on the cholesterol controversy is, without a doubt, one of the finest and most helpful pieces of research I've yet run across. I highly endorse Ladd McNamara's work."

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)

Collette Larsen:

"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."

Statin drugs lower cholesterol, however how much does that really reduce the risk of death from heart disease? Hmmm? Death doesn't lie. What is the number one cause of death in both men and women? Heart disease! After decades of using cholesterol-lowering drugs to reduce the risk of death from heart disease, my suggestion it's time to give quality nutritional supplements and a healthy lifestyle a chance! That being said, everyone must check with their own health care professional before making any changes to their medications, or before beginning a nutritional supplement program. However, please make sure your physician knows the power of nutritional supplementation, otherwise you will not get the full story of how nutritional supplements can benefit your health and reduce the risk of disease.

This section is for you to comment on your experiences with "The Cholesterol Conspiracy." How has this booked helped you personally? How has it helped you with your health, with your business? For those who don't know, this book explains how oxidative damage and elevated homocysteine levels are the true causes of atherosclerosis, heart disease, and death from cardiovascular disease; .....and how a healthy lifestyle, exercise, weight loss, and taking a full range of quality antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids can do more to promote good cardiovascular health than taking statin drugs. You will find this information well researched and documented in this book.

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.

Ask Ladd McNamara About Nutritional Supplements?

Use this section to ask Ladd McNamara questions about nutritional supplements, and check back often for the replies to other people's questions. (Please do not ask questions regarding any person's medical condition, or as to what to take for any specific problem. You must discuss personal medical conditions with your own doctor. Nutritional supplements are part of an overall health program. This is only for questions pertaining to the function and importance of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids as they pertain to the cellular and metabolic functions, and in regard to health in general, as well as what has been published in the medical literature.)

To see an indication of a top quality nutitional supplement brand, please refer to Lyle MacWilliam's book, the Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements, now in it's Fourth Edition:

Watch the newest movie about this amazing book at:

Did you know that over 30 years of medical research indicates that nutritional supplements; vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids are associated with a decreased risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, type 2 diabetes, respiratory diseases, Alzheimer's disease, osteoporosis, wrinkling, and may even slow the aging process? To keep it simple, it all has to do with oxidation. If you wanted to increase your risk of disease, wrinkling, and accelerate the aging process you would simply need to smoke several packs of cigarettes per day for several decades. The more packs per day you could smoke the more likely you would get a disease. This has to do with more oxidative damage caused by cigarette smoking.

Antioxidants essentially work the opposite of cigarette smoke. They neutralize free radicals in the toxins of smoke that damage cells. Cells being protected from damage are able to maintain health, repair themselves, and stay as young as possible. Healthy cells are by definition not diseased cells. It's almost as if antioxidants are the opposite of cigarettes. This is not really the case; it's only an analogy, but hopefully it gets the point across.

It is true that nutritional supplements, along with a proper diet, exercise, reduced stress, proper sleep, and reduced exposure to environmental toxins can have a very positive influence on many disease processes and promote health. This is NOT to imply that supplements are a cure or a treatment for any disease, but not only do they help promote health in "healthy people," they may exert a positive effect in people suffering from chronic degenerative diseases that are caused and worsened by oxidative damage. The following is NOT to indicate a list of diseases that nutritionals can "cure," but rather how people with such ailments may experience health promotion with proper lifestyle changes, including the use of quality nutritional supplements.

  • Acne

  • Allergies

  • Arthritis (Rheumatoid and OsteoArthritis)

  • Asthma

  • Atherosclerosis

  • AutoImmunne Diseases

  • Breast Cancer

  • Bronchitis

  • Cardiovascular Disease (Heart Disease)

  • Cervical Dysplasia

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrone

  • Colon Cancer

  • Diabetes (Type 2)

  • Insulin Insensitivity

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Lung Cancer

  • Multiple Sclerosis

  • Parkinson's Disease

  • Periodontitis (gum disease)

  • Prostate - Benign Hypertrophy (Enlargement)

  • Prostate Cancer

  • Stroke

The purpose of listing the above conditions is not to be complete, but to give the reader the idea that the many diseases may be influenced by a proper diet, exercise, and proper nutritional supplementation. Certainly taking quality nutritional supplements is no guarantee that a person will not develop a disease, ....and certainly everyone will eventually die. However, since many of us are "living too short and dying too long," it is worth doing all we can to reverse this trend.

Please use this opportunity to share your short comments about how quality nutritional supplements have made a difference in your life and health. Please do not mention brand names, or jump to unsubstantiated claims. However, if you feel your experience with quality nutritional supplements is significant please feel free to share it here.

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.
