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.

Can Smoking Change our Genes?

Friday, December 27th, 2013

logo1267406_mdA new study published in the journal Human Molecular Genetics concluded that smoking alters several genes that can be associated with health problems such as increased risk of cancer and diabetes. Although we inherit our genes from our patents the genetic material can later be changes by epigenetic  modification such as chemical alterations of the DNA that affect the activity of the genes. These alterations are normally caused by aging but can also be a result of environmental factors and lifestyle.Researchers identified a large number of genes that were altered in smokers but found noi such effect in non-smokers. The researcher said “This means that the epigenetic modifications are likely not caused by substances in the tobacco, but by the hundreds of different elements that are formed when the tobacco is burnt.”  ….”Our results therefore indicate that the increased disease risk associated with smoking is partly a cuased by epigenetiv changes.”

Use Alternatives to Reduce Type 2 Diabetes Risks

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

John LaGrace, National Awareness Director, DrugWatch.com was kind enough to provide the following guest blog written by his staff on alternatives to reduce Type 2 diabetes. I hope you enjoy it.

__________________________________________________________

Doctor Mark Hyman, author of the “The Blood Sugar Solution,” described diabetes as a foodborne illness. While the exact cause of diabetes isn’t well understood there is a recognizable link between fat buildup from unhealthy foods and the onset of the disease. The American Diabetes Association says that about 50 percent of men and 70 percent of women are obese when they are diagnosed.

This link between obesity and type 2 diabetes opens up the door to exciting possibilities for naturally fighting symptoms. Even if a person isn’t obese, adjusting their amount of exercise and beginning a healthy diet can drastically reduce symptoms. Doctors say that patients only need to lose 5 to 10 percent of their body weight to see an improvement.

The Look AHEAD study showed that people with type 2 diabetes benefit the most from natural treatments when they seek out the help of professionals like dieticians and personal trainers. Doctors should also be consulted before attempting to modify your exercise or diet to treat diabetes. With a combination of expert guidance you can develop a well-rounded and effective treatment plan. In the Look AHEAD study people with type 2 diabetes who received professional guidance were able to keep significant weight off consistently, while those who didn’t saw fewer results.

Medical studies show a combination of diet and exercise are the most effective natural treatments to reduce diabetes symptoms. Exercise helps sensitize the body to insulin, which lowers blood sugar. It also reduces harmful cholesterol, which reduces the risk of congestive heart failure.

Patients should begin their lifestyle changes progressively. After talking to a Doctor they can begin to make conservative changes in diet and exercise, and then see how their body reacts. By pacing themselves people avoid potentially over stressing their body, or lowering their blood sugar too rapidly. As the body adjusts to a new health routine people can gradually increase the aggressiveness of their natural treatment.

The health risks of congestive heart failure and stroke are serious side effects associated with diabetes medications are serious and should be addressed. In fact, the FDA has issued a black-box warning on type 2 diabetes medication, Actos, because of its link with congestive heart failure. This has resulted in many users filing an Actos lawsuit against the manufacturer.

Having type 2 diabetes may make changing diet and regular exercise more difficult, but with enough discipline people may actually be able to beat the disease. One British study showed that with dramatic lifestyle intervention type 2 diabetes can actually be reversed in some patients.

The American Diabetes Association says that people can have an impact on their symptoms by starting to exercise 30 minutes a day for five days a week. Exercise doesn’t have to be strenuous either. Working around the house or walking is sufficient to improve heart health and reduce the risk of diabetes related symptoms. Be sure to warm up before jumping into a fitness routine, and always consult your doctor about beginning natural treatment.

Do Women Working Irregular Night Shifts Have an Increase Risk of Type 2 Diabetes?

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

A new study published online in the journal PLoS Medicine concluded that women who work an irregular shift schedule including three or more night shifts a month in addition to days and evenings in the same month may have an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes when compared to women who work only days or evenings.

Researchers analyzed data on move than 69,260 U.S. women ages 42 to 67, tracked between 1988 and 2008 and another 107,915 women ages 25 to 42 tracked between 1989 and 2007. The study subjects were part of the Nurses Health Study Part I and Part II respectively. Around 60% of the nurses performed more than one year of irregular shifts at the baseline. About 11% of the nurses in Study I had more than 10 years of irregular night shifts and in study II about 4% worked more than 10 years of the irregular night shift. Researchers found that the longer women worked on irregular night shifts the higher their probability of type 2 diabetes. Thus, those working 3 to 9 years had a 20% increased risk; those working 10 to 19 years had a 40% risk, and those working irregular shifts over 20 years had 68% risk for type 2 diabetes. When their data was adjusted for body weight the increased risk continued but at a lower risk level. The author said the increased risk seen was partly a result of increased weight. However, The awareness of the relationship of increased risk for diabetes among irregular night shift workers shows the importance of lifestyle and diet changes. The researchers also noted that these findings need to be confirmed in men and ethnic groups.
