"I have developed nutriceutical products for CountryDocMD because research has proven the need for products which can be confidentially used in your home to help control the personal problems of weight, alcohol, nicotine and chemical abuse. Despite my enthusiasm for self help with these products, I know that they are not for everyone and, if they are not effective for you, please contact a physician in your community who specializes in weight control or chemical addictions".
