Dr. Jonathan Wright has taught natural medicine treatments since 1983 to thousands of physicians in the USA, Europe, and Japan.

Most notably, he personally developed the use of Bio-Identical estrogens in 1982, was the first to use DHEA in private practice, originated successful natural treatment for elimination of childhood asthma and D-mannose treatment for E. coli urinary tract infection, and discovered the effect of cobalt and iodine on estrogen detoxification.

In 1973, Dr. Wright founded Tahoma Clinic and Dispensary, Tahoma Clinic Foundation and Meridian Valley Laboratory in the Puget Sound area of Washington state, serving as Medical Director and Medical Research Director.
