Dr. Cordie Williams
- FOUNDER/PRESIDENT -
Dr. Cordie Williams is a US Marine and Chiropractor. At the beginning of the COVID pandemic in 2020, Dr. Cordie felt the state of California was violating his right and the rights of other Americans. As a father, veteran, and business owner, he knew he had to be the man to stand up. Dr. Cordie picked up a megaphone and began speaking up at protests all across California, gaining him the name #megaphonemarine.
His message was loud and clear and caught the attention of millions. His speech from May 1, 2020, at the state capitol in Sacramento, CA, has received more than 8 million hits on Facebook and has generated over 15 million views across all platforms. “In the face of tyranny, in the face of freedom, are you going to sit there in your riot gear against peaceful protesters?” asked Williams. “Or are you going to say, ‘you know what, it’s time to stand up for my country? Because I took an oath of office and it said, ‘I will defend against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”
Emboldened by government overreach plaguing America, Dr. Cordie was inspired to found 1776 Forever Free to help protect all Americans’ freedom. Just like he raised his voice for the people, the movement has increased the volume on the importance of Constitutional Rights to all Americans, regardless of race, religion, creed, or color. In September 2020, 1776 Forever Free began a journey, The Freedom Tour, which crisscrossed the country from California, across the heartland, to the south and landing in D.C. right before the Presidential election. The strength of the movement that Dr. Cordie founded is evident in the involvement of its supporters.

Dr. Tania Williams, DC
- OFFICER OF 1776 FOREVER FREE -
Originally from Long Island, New York, Dr. Tania Williams decided to become a holistic doctor when her dad passed away at the young age of 60 from pancreatic cancer. It was at that time that she began looking into alternative and holistic approaches to health. She soon became a patient of Dr. Ray Omid in Garden City, New York, who taught her the importance of building health and prevention as opposed to treating symptoms and managing disease. Dr. Williams saw so many miracles and so many people getting well that she decided to work for Dr. Ray Omid as the marketing coordinator and soon after, she decided to become a holistic doctor herself.
Once Dr. Williams declared that she would marry a holistic doctor she met her now husband and sweetheart, Dr. Cordie Williams at Life University in Marietta, Georgia. Once they graduated with high honors, Drs. Tania and Cordie Williams moved to Carlsbad, California as a husband and wife team, creating the Health From Within Family Wellness Center.
Dr. Tania Williams takes care of families and individuals of all ages with a specialty in pediatrics and pregnancy. Together with Dr. Cordie Williams, her mission is to serve the masses so that every person she comes in contact with has the best opportunity to create the life of their dreams through optimal health.
