A Harvard University and University of Michigan graduate, Dr. Jonathan V. Wright is a forerunner in research and application of natural treatments for healthy aging and illness.  Since 1976 he and his associates have accumulated over 60,000 research papers about diet, vitamins, minerals, botanicals, and other natural substances and energies from which he has developed many natural, non-drug treatments for health problems.  Since 1983, Dr. Wright has regularly taught seminars about these methods to thousands of physicians in the United States and overseas.  In Washington State, Tahoma Clinic was founded in 1973 where he continues to practice medicine while serving as Medical Director for Tahoma’s three health clinics, a supplement store/dispensary, and Meridian Valley Laboratory.

In 1982, Dr. Wright was the first in these United States to write comprehensive bio-identical hormone program prescriptions for estrogens, progesterone, DHEA, testosterone and often thyroid hormones.  To complement this therapy he encouraged the development of comprehensive hormone testing (at Meridian Valley Laboratory) to ensure their safe use.  Recognized as the “Father of Bio-identical Hormone Therapy”, Dr. Wright is a popular speaker, teaching the use and laboratory monitoring of bio-identical hormones for women and men at seminars each year.

In addition to bio-identical hormone research and development, he also originated successful natural treatment for elimination of childhood asthma, developed treatment to stop vision loss or improve vision in the majority of individuals with “dry” macular degeneration, was the first to use aldosterone to reverse age-related hearing loss in humans, discovered the effect of iodine on estrogen metabolism and cobalt on steroid detoxification, popularized the use of D-mannose treatment for E. coli urinary tract infection, developed effective natural treatment for seborrheic dermatitis, allergic and viral conjunctivitis, and Osgood-Schlatter’s disease.  In 2013, he resurrected forgotten research and treatment protocols (published in 1983, never implemented in humans since) for the use of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) to treat severe neurological problems.

Internationally known for his books and medical articles, Dr. Wright has authored or co-authored 13 books, selling over 1.5 million copies, with two texts achieving best selling status: “Book of Nutritional Therapy” and “Guide to Healing with Nutrition”.  He authors a monthly newsletter emphasizing nutritional medicine that reaches over 118,000 in the USA, and another 15,000 or more worldwide.


With three locations in the Puget Sound area, the Tahoma Clinics emphasize natural treatments and testing to ascertain the cause of disease, Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for women and men, customized approaches for all patients, with cutting edge protocols as pioneered by Dr. Jonathan V. Wright, Medical Director and Founder.

With its inception in 1973, Tahoma Clinic became one of the first integrative medicine clinics in the Puget Sound area of Washington State.  With therapies based on over 50,000 medical journal articles, Tahoma Clinic has a long history of providing effective treatments based on natural therapies.  Founder, Dr. Jonathan Wright, is a well-known and respected pioneer in holistic medicine and bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, with the most recent distinction being induction into the Orthomolecular Hall of Fame (April 2012 ceremony).  He serves as keynote speaker at major medical conferences on a yearly basis in addition to providing his “Nutritional Therapy in Medical Practice” seminar, a very popular venue with co-researcher and colleague Dr. Alan Gaby.
