A Note from Our Founder
As a physician who has shifted from "procedure-oriented care" – performing Angioplasties, Stents, and Electrophysiologic procedures – to a doctor most interested in preventing problems from ever occurring in the first place, I created VitalRemedyMD to be the nutritional supplement company that bridges the gap between complementary and allopathic medicine.
VitalRemedyMD has as its central goal the formulation and production of top-quality, scientifically sound nutritional supplements. We diligently and tirelessly follow the medical literature in order to understand and respond to credible advances in the young but blossoming area of nutritional medicine. We aim to be the resource – for both you and your physician - for education and clarification in this often murky realm of science. We welcome and encourage you to contact us so that we may be your ally in the quest for optimal health.
Wishing you the best of health and happiness,
Seth J. Baum, MD, Founder and Director of Clinical Development, VitalRemedyMD.
