Who we are

– Mission Statement –

At Chews-4-Health International, our mission and promise is to always live life embracing and pursuing change, recognizing what’s considered “the norm” and rising above those standards. We vow never to compromise our products and will always demand perfection, potency, natural affinity, bio-availability and superior absorption. We disagree with nutritionists who say, “You are what you eat.” Instead, we believe, “You are what you absorb!” We take the health of our customers very seriously and will always use the highest quality raw materials, thoroughly inspected for safety, purity, and performance. Good health doesn’t come TO YOU, it comes from WITHIN YOU. The good nutrients you bring to the inside of your body today will determine the health and happiness you will receive on the outside tomorrow. Chews-4-Health International produces the highest quality nutritional supplements guaranteed to help you live a healthier lifestyle. Through syndicated radio (including To Your Good Health Radio, hosted by our formulator Dr. Friedman), celebrity endorsements and national media exposure, our products have become household names! Chews-4-Health International represents health and wellness to the fullest degree.

“Good health doesn’t come TO YOU, it comes from WITHIN YOU.”


  • Who We Are

Executive Team

Dr David Friedman – CEO, Product Formulator –

All of our products have been formulated by Dr. David Friedman, B.S.,N.D.,D.C. Dr. Friedman is a renowned educator and lecturer in the field of nutrition, a Chiropractic Physician and certified Doctor of Naturopathy. He’s received post-doctorate certification from Harvard Medical School and is a former teacher of Neurology. The Hollywood Reporter called Dr. Friedman the “Chiropractor to the Stars,” as his list of patients have included top celebrities and movie stars like: John Travolta, Jenny McCarthy, Jamie Lee Curtis, Val Kilmer, and Paul Newman, to name a few. Dr. Friedman is a #1 National Best-selling author and a contributing writer for many leading health and fitness magazines. He’s a frequent guest on syndicated radio and television shows. His bestselling CD, America’s Unbalanced Diet (over a million copies sold) exposes shocking facts about the food we eat.

As “The Health Expert” for Lifetime Television’s morning show, millions of people have enjoyed his weekly, cutting edge features. Viewers favorites include: Artificial sweeteners cause obesity; milk leads to obesity; and, vitamin supplements, which people rely on to prevent disease, may actually be contributing to your lack of good health. Dr. Friedman also hosts the nationally syndicated program To Your Good Health Radio, which has changed the face of talk radio by incorporating entertainment, shock value and solutions to everyday health and wellness issues. The show is heard coast-to-coast every week on AM/FM and internet radio platforms including: iHeart Radio, TuneInRadio, SketcherRadio, SlackerRadio, RadioMD, and PublicRadioFan. Podcasts (many have gone viral!) are also available on iTunes. Each show features interviews from world-renowned doctors, celebrities, sports figures, and New York Times bestselling authors who all share one common goal—finding a healthy lifestyle in the unhealthiest developed country in the world…..the good ole U.S.A. www.ToYourGoodHealthRadio.com.

Dr. Friedman is a member of the Naturopathic Medical Association, American Dietetic Association and is a registered Naturopathic Diplomate (RND). He’s been honored in the National Who’s Who Directory for Distinguished Businesses since 2002.

After becoming frustrated by the void he found in the world of nutrition he spent 3 1/2 years formulating and perfecting his revolutionary product, Chews-4-Health™…the VERY FIRST full spectrum super fruit/sea vegetable and antioxidant chewable in the world!

This product took 3 1/2 years to bring to fruition because every manufacturer failed in their attempt to create the wonderful product Dr. Friedman envisioned. Through his perseverance and refusing to compromise, Chews-4-Health was launched in 2008 and still remains the world’s first and only super fruit, sea vegetable, antioxidant chewable. Since then, he’s followed up with a natural energy product (IGNITE™) natural sleep aid (Good-Night™) and a natural weight reduction product (TrimUlean™) – all whole-food chewable products.
