Jonathan V. Wright, M.D.

Dr. Jonathan Wright is the Medical Director of Tahoma Clinic in Renton, Washington, and has treated over 2,000 women with bio-identical hormone replacement since 1982 and was also the first to use DHEA in private practice. A Harvard University (A.B. 1965) and University of Michigan graduate (M.D. 1969), Dr. Wright has taught natural biochemical medical treatments since 1983 to thousands of physicians in the USA, Europe, and Japan. He originated successful natural treatment for elimination of childhood asthma and D-mannose treatment for E. coli urinary tract infection, and discovered cobalt’s effect on estrogen detoxification. 

In 1973, Dr. Wright founded Tahoma Clinic, which focuses on disease prevention and treatment by natural biochemical means. Tahoma Clinic is staffed with medical doctors, naturopathic physicians, nutritionists, allergists, nurses and administrative personnel committed to the vision of providing patients with the best holistic medical care. The infamous 1992 FDA Tahoma Clinic “raid” (“The Great B-Vitamin Bust”) was a major impetus for Congressional reform of vitamin/mineral regulation. Dr. Wright continues to be an advocate for patient freedom of choice in healthcare.

Dr. Wright is internationally known for his books and medical articles. He has authored/co-authored 11 books, selling over 1.1 million copies, with Book of Nutritional Therapy and Dr. Wright's Guide to Healing with Nutrition achieving best selling status.

Dr. Wright authors Nutrition and Healing, a monthly newsletter emphasizing nutritional medicine in medical practice that reaches over 90,000 in the USA, and another 20,000 or more worldwide. Dr. Wright has also been a monthly medical columnist in Prevention (1976-1986) and Let's Live (1986-1996) magazines.

Along with Alan Gaby, M.D., Dr. Wright routinely presents the comprehensive and scientifically documented “Nutritional Therapy in Medical Practice” seminar which has helped numerous health professionals gain insight into nutritional approaches for disease. Dr. Wright speaks nationwide at various medical association conferences on varied topics including nutritional medicine, natural hormone replacement therapies for men and women, the natural treatment of cardiovascular diseases, asthma, diabetes, D-mannose for bladder infection, Vitamin D usage and laboratory testing, clinical uses of nutrient elements, and many other subjects. This course is based on the Wright/Gaby research library, a compilation of over 35,000 medical journal articles dating from 1920 to the present.
