David Foreman RPh is a retired pharmacist who now host his own radio show “The Herbal Pharmacist.” His research in healing led him away from traditional pharmacy and toward the healing power of nutrition, supplements and herbs. The author of 4 Pillars of Health: Heart Disease, he studied at the South Carolina College of Pharmacy.

Foreman speaks to colleges, medical groups and hospitals about the importance of natural healing, which he believes works hand in hand with mainstream medicine.
