Dr. Jonathan Wright teaches the importance of hormone health and how to turn back the biological clock
by Jonathan Benson, staff writer
(NaturalNews) They call him the "father of bio-identical hormones" -- Dr. Jonathan Wright, medical director of the Tahoma Clinic in Washington State and world-renowned leader in the research and application of natural treatments for healthy aging and illness. Dr. Wright recently spoke at a meeting of the Alliance for Natural Health-International and integrative cancer care charity Yes to Life that took place in London, sharing his immense wisdom and expertise on important topics such as hormone balance and turning back the biological clock.
Dr. Wright has been a practicing physician for more than 45 years now, and during this time he's gained an incredible understanding of how the human body works. Today, he continues to help both men and women achieve optimal hormone balance, avoid developing diabetes and other metabolic disorders, correct thyroid disorders, prevent heart disease and so much more. And his integrative approach to health ensures that patients won't become lifelong pharmaceutical addicts that merely hide their symptoms rather than find true healing.
Along with Robert Scott Bell of The Robert Scott Bell Show, Dr. Wright spoke on a number of crucial topics inherent to health and well-being, including proper hormone balance. Today's world is overloaded with toxic chemicals, which is why Dr. Wright believes in starting first with intravenous chelation treatments to rid the body of heavy metal toxicity. From there, he advises his patients to take in plenty of whole-food-based zinc, vitamin A, vitamin D, and both olive and coconut oils, as these foods, particularly in men, help kickstart testosterone production.
Low testosterone, it turns out, is an endemic problem in today's post-industrialized world, and it's marked by common symptoms such as declining libido, poor memory, lack of enthusiasm, failing strength and moodiness. Excessive belly fat is another common symptom of low testosterone, resulting from too much cortisol production inside the body, due in large part to excess sugar and cheap carb consumption.
Learn how to eat right and avoid disease with the ANH-Intl Food4Health Plate program Dr. Wright also spoke at the meeting about type 2 diabetes, which now affects nearly 10% of the U.S. population, or about 29 million people. Contrary to popular belief, obesity isn't the cause of type 2 diabetes -- type 2 diabetes is the cause of obesity! And the best way to avoid this common metabolic disorder is to change your diet and lifestyle habits. You can learn more about this through the ANH-Intl Food4Health Plate program for metabolic flexibility:
"According to Dr Wright, and borne out in his day-to-day practice, there are clear signs of pre-diabetes, long before clinical symptoms manifest," explains ANH-Intl. "Skin tags, abdominal obesity, waking up at night, sugar and carb cravings and osteoarthritis are all markers of an 80% chance of developing type 2 diabetes. If you tick any one of these boxes, the advice is life-style change and soon."
Perhaps the best part about adopting Dr. Wright's diet-based and detoxification approach to achieving vibrant health and avoiding chronic disease is that, by simply eating right, people will notice both immediate and long-term benefits in many aspects of their lives. Supplementing with whole-food-based super-nutrients and vitamins provides full-spectrum health benefits, in other words, rather than just targeted therapy.
"[T]hose of us dealing in natural medicine have great enjoyment of the fact that if something works on one thing, it'll work on five others!" emphasizes Dr. Wright.
