Dr. David Freedman BSc, MD, FRCP(C)
Dr David Freedman, clinical cardiologist and co-founder of VitalityMD has learned over his many years of practicing Medicine to appreciate that in order for his patients to succeed in gaining optimal health, it is essential that they participate in their own wellness. This means that patients need to commit to exploring both exercise and dietary programs which would best serve their needs in order to help them lose weight and improve health. They need to achieve restful sleep, and they need to establish a routine which helps them to de-stress and includes the practice of guided meditation.
Dr Freedman has always been an advocate of the importance of maintaining good health, both through regular exercise and healthy eating practices. He has always felt that people must seek the drive to do so for themselves.
