Dr Jonathan Wright Discusses Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

Sunday, October 6th, 2019

My guest for Saturday, a Harvard University (1965) and University of Michigan Medical School graduate (1969), Dr. Jonathan V. Wright was also awarded an honorary N.D. by Bastyr University (1993). He is a pioneer in the research and application of effective natural treatments for health problems not requiring surgery.

Since 1976 he has accumulated over 80,000 research papers concerning diet, vitamins, minerals, botanicals, and other natural substances (along with Dr. Alan Gaby) from which he has developed treatment protocols. Since 1983, he has taught seminars on his methods to thousands of physicians.  Drs. Wright and Gaby’s “Nutritional Therapy in Medical Practice” seminar remains one of the most complete and intensive natural medicine seminars available to physicians.

In the early 1980s, Dr. Wright was the first in these United States to prescribe comprehensive hormone replacement therapy using hormones identical to those found naturally in young humans (rather than hormones from pregnant horses and/or synthesized in factories). This therapy (Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy or “BHRT”) is now used nationwide by millions. Recognized as the original developer and most experienced practitioner of BHRT, Dr. Wright often lectures on maximizing efficacy and safety in bio-identical hormone use.

Other accomplishments include originating successful natural treatment for elimination of childhood asthma, developing natural treatment to stop vision loss and/or improve vision in the majority of individuals with “dry” macular degeneration, pioneering the use of aldosterone to reverse age-related hearing loss, discovering the effects of  iodine on estrogen metabolism and cobalt on steroid detoxification, and popularizing the use of the natural sugar D-mannose for elimination of 85-90% of urinary tract infections. He also originated effective natural treatment for seborrheic dermatitis, allergic and viral conjunctivitis, Osgood-Schlatter’s disease, and treatment which improves bone density in the large majority of those with osteoporosis.  In 2013, he resurrected forgotten research and treatment protocols for the application of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) to treat severe neurological problems.  Most recently, he applied published research showing the presence of Helicobacter-pylori in nasal polyps to develop a treatment for nasal polyps.

Dr. Wright founded Tahoma Clinic in Washington State in 1973. The “infamous” 1992 FDA armed raid on Tahoma Clinic (“The Great B-Vitamin Bust”) inadvertently popularized the Clinic and natural medicine, with Dr. Wright’s ensuing struggles (and eventual acquittal) serving as major impetus for Congressional reform of vitamin/mineral regulation.

He is internationally known for his 29 medical articles and 13 books, selling over 1.5 million copies, with two texts (Book of Nutritional Therapy” and “Guide to Healing with Nutrition”) achieving best-selling status. Since 1996 he has written a popular monthly newsletter emphasizing nutritional and naturally-based medicine with a wide-reaching distributionDr. Jonathan V. Wright authors a monthly newsletter devoted to natural health, Green Medicine Newsletter (www.GreenMedicineNewsletter.com).

Most recently, in April 2012 he was inducted into the Orthomolecular Hall of Fame (International Society of Orthomolecular Medicine), honored for his contributions to the field of natural medicine. A full list of honors/awards appears in Dr. Wright’s curriculum, found online at www.TahomaClinic.com.

Dr Laszlo Boros Speaks on Deuterium Depleted Water and Cancer

Sunday, February 3rd, 2019

Dr. Laszlo Boros is currently a Professor of Pediatrics at UCLA and the Co-Director of the Stable Isotope Research Laboratory at the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute (LABIOMED) at the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center with a primary focus on studying cancer cell metabolism with the use of a specifically designed 13C-glucose tracer and mass spectroscopy. Born and educated in Hungary, Dr. Boros’ medical background includes three years of gastroenterology and pancreatology, focusing on chronic pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer. He spent two years as a visiting scholar in Essen, Germany, studying various animal models of chronic pancreatitis. In 1990, he moved to Columbus, Ohio, where he joined the history-making laboratory of Drs. Zollinger and Ellison, who described hormonal regulatory mechanisms involved in pancreatic cancer growth with a primary emphasis on diagnostics and treatment.

In 1995 he became the lead investigator to clinically apply stable isotope technologies to study diabetes and cancer growth in vitro and in animal models at UCLA. He is an expert in using metabolic profiling and mitochondrial nanomechanics to further understanding of particularly aggressive cancers. Dr. Boros also participates in research projects targeting population metabolic disorders, such as diabetes and obesity, and is involved in discovering the underlying mechanisms of rare metabolic disorders arising from genetic mutations affecting vitamin transport.  Dr. Boros is an internationally proclaimed expert of metabolic water biochemistry as well as deuterium mediated kinetic isotopic effects in health and disease.

Dr. Boros is the recipient of the C. Williams Hall Outstanding Publication Award from the Academy of Surgical Research of the USA (1997), the Richard E. Weitzman Memorial Research Award from the University of California (2001), the Excellence in Clinical Research Award from the General Clinical Research Center at the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center (2004), Public Health Impact Investigator Award of the United States Food and Drug Administration (2011) and received a Best Publication Award from the Metabolomics Society and Springer Nature publisher (2014).

Dr. Boros serves as Chief Scientist at the Center for Deuterium Depletion, the world’s first organization to use deuterium and tracer technologies in a research clinic setting to describe and follow the health status of patients with metabolic disorders such as cancer, diabetes, and autoimmune disorders.

Dr Gil Kajiki, Natural Rx for Thyroid/AutoImmune Conditions.

Sunday, June 19th, 2016

dr-gil-img

My guests next Saturday, Dr Gil Kajiki is the founder of the Valley Thyroid Institute. He graduated from the Pasadena College of Chiropractic and has been a chiropractor for 30 years. The main focus of his practice is thyroid and Auto Immune conditions.

Through working with his patients he developed the Kajiki Protocol for determining thyroid and autoimmune issues with a particular concentration on Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. He offers his patients answers and protocols to improve thyroid function and overall health.

With his roots in chiropractic-biophysics, Dr. Kajiki was busy helping patients in the San Fernando Valley in Southern California with their spinal structural corrective care when his wife became ill with what at first appeared to be Epstein Barr.

As he watched his wife’s health deteriorate under the care of several doctors, Dr. Kajiki began a relentless search for answers to why his healthy wife could become so ill and yet no one seemed to know how to care for her. After more than two years of tests, medication, B12 shots, and finally hospitalization, it was her husband and not her medical provider who came to her rescue.

After countless hours of study, consultation with colleagues, and testing, Dr. Kajiki diagnosed his wife with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, an autoimmune condition that attacks the thyroid. He spent the next several months treating her autoimmune condition through natural supplements, lifestyle modifications, and dietary changes. She is now symptom free and doesn’t take any thyroid medication.

Dr. Kajiki couldn’t stand to think that perhaps somebody else was having to go through the prolonged struggle with this condition as he and his wife had. Because of this experience, he dedicated his practice to helping Hashimoto’s and low thyroid patients overcome their symptoms naturally.

Dr. Kajiki still works from his office in Tarzana, California, however his patients are from countries and cities all across the globe—many as far away as Canada, Romania, London and New Zealand. He is available to his patients in person, via skype or phone. Dr. Kajiki also has more than 100 video testimonials of successful outcomes from happy patients that implemented his Low Thyroid Protocol and are thrilled to tell the world of their success.

Dr. Kajiki has been interviewed several times on Lisa Garr’s “The Aware Show”, heard on KPFK. Garr (also a Hashimoto’s patient), collaborated with Dr. Kajiki on an educational 5 DVD series of self-help for patients with chronic thyroid problems called “The Thyroid Mystery Solved”.
