Jonathan V. Wright
"Jonathan V. Wright, M.D. has degrees from both Harvard University (cum laude) and the University of Michigan. More than any other doctor, he practically invented the modern science of applied nutritional biochemistry and he has advanced nutritional medicine for nearly three decades. Thousands of doctors respect Dr. Wright as the author of the best-selling Book of Nutritional Therapy and Guide to Healing with Nutrition, as well as other classics in the field. Millions of Americans first learned about natural medicine through Dr. Wright's regular columns in Prevention (1976-1986) and Let's Live (1986-1996) magazines.
"In addition, for nearly 30 years, Dr. Wright and his colleague, Alan Gaby, M.D., have been building an archive of natural healing science unique in all the world. Today it includes nearly every major study on the subject ever published in over 350 medical journals over the past 35 years...plus every pertinent study published in 50 major journals since 1920.
"Dr. Wright is also credited with introducing the nutritional remedy for benign prostate disease (BPH)…the first successful treatment to reverse macular degeneration…the safe medical use of DHEA therapy…natural hormone replacement therapy for women…and many other revolutionary natural cures.
"He is President Emeritus of the National Health Federation and has served on the Board of Directors of Bastyr University, The Life Extension Foundation, the American Preventive Medical Association, and other important medical institutions.
"Yet he regards all the above as secondary to his family medical practice. For more than 35 years, he has devoted his talents to helping heal many thousands of patients. Combining the most advanced new natural techniques with the best in traditional medicine, he takes a truly holistic approach. As of today, Dr. Wright has received over 40,000 patient visits at his now-famous Tahoma Clinic in Washington State."
His first two books were Book of Nutritional Therapy (Rodale Press, 1979) and Guide to Healing with Nutrition (Rodale Press, 1984).
