Dr. John Findlay

It all started back in the early 1960’s when my Mom would listen to Carlton Fredericks, a nutritionist on a New York radio station. She ordered vitamins from the Foods Plus Company. Back then there weren’t any stores that sold vitamins. My siblings and I would have bottle caps with five vitamin pills placed next to our knife and fork with breakfast. In adolescence I started reading the labels on foods and found that I could rid acne by eliminating sugar. There were a lot of other ingredients that were hard to pronounce that were said by the radio host to be harmful to health. There was a deep dive into the macrobiotics world in the late teen years and sports nutrition to augment strength training.
