More About the Author

Dr. Jonathan V. Wright is a pioneer in natural therapies for health conditions and an expert in the use of bioidentical hormone replacement for men and women.

A Harvard University and University of Michigan graduate, Dr. Jonathan V. Wright is a fore-runner in research and application of natural treatments for healthy aging and illness. Along with Alan Gaby, M.D., he has since 1976 accumulated a file of over 50,000 research papers about diet, vitamins, minerals, botanicals, and other natural substances from which he has developed non-patent medicine (non-"drug") treatments for health problems. Since 1983, Drs. Wright and Gaby have regularly taught seminars about these methods to tens of thousands of physicians in these United States and overseas.

He was the first to develop and introduce the use of comprehensive patterns of bio-identical hormones (including estrogens, progesterone, DHEA, and testosterone) in 1982 and (at Meridian Valley Laboratory) directed the development of tests to ensure their safe use. He teaches use and laboratory monitoring of bio-identical hormones at several seminars each year.

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, 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.

Dr. Wright founded the Tahoma Clinic (1973), Meridian Valley Laboratory (1976), and the Tahoma Clinic Foundation (1996). Tahoma Clinic was established to approach disease by natural means and emphasize correction of imbalances in the body that lead to disease. The infamous 1992 FDA Tahoma Clinic "raid" ("The Great B-Vitamin Bust") was a major impetus for Congressional reform of vitamin/mineral regulation. Dr. Wright continues to be an advocate for patient freedom of choice in healthcare.

Internationally known for his books and medical articles, Dr. Wright has authored or co-authored 14 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 "Nutrition and Healing", a monthly newsletter emphasizing nutritional medicine that reaches over 118,000 in the USA, and another 15,000 or more worldwide.

On April 28th, 2012 Dr. Jonathan V. Wright was inducted into the Orthomolecular Hall of Fame in recognition of his outstanding contributions to orthomolecular medicine over the years. He joins other well-known and respected pioneers honored by the organization since 2004. Click here for more info about the Hall of Fame (www.orthomolecular.org).

Waking up doctors and individuals to the importance of stomach acid and the foolishness of using antacids is well worth five stars.

Dr. Jonathan Wright is one of the top dozen or so brilliant MDs helping to educate doctors and people while providing excellent medical care for his patients. His lectures and presentations are usually full of extremely valuable information.

Unfortunately this book waffles around for the first twenty pages talking about conventional thought promoting antacids as a cure for GERD or acid reflux. It isn't until about page twenty when Dr. Wright finally starts to discuss some of the important scientific concepts (and he never gets technical). Another 19 pages convey some useful information (for the majority of people that weren't aware of this already).

As another reviewer pointed out, only 39 pages of this book is actual discussion of the topic, the rest is supporting references. I don't have a problem with this book being short (it can literally be read in just a few minutes).

I had hoped this would be a good medical reference book to add to my shelf of great books. Unfortunately there is very little solid information in this book. If you understand the basic concept that most people with stomach issues (including acid reflux) actually suffer from low stomach acid, not too much stomach acid, and you understand that consuming antacids only gives temporary relief while causing more long term issues, then there is no reason to purchase this book.

I'm truly disappointed by this book as I consider Dr. Jonathan Wright to be one of the best colleagues in our fight against incompetent medical care. (I never hesitate to refer clients to him for care.)

21 of 23 people found the following review helpful By Liz Ryan on November 17, 2009
Format: Hardcover
The actual writing is 38 double spaced pages with one-inch margins. It is not a substantial amount of information. There are two more pages citing databases for finding a doctor, and 104 pages of notes and bibliography references. Most of the discussion is about the problem, but there isn't a lot about what to do about it, in spite of what the cover says. If you have never heard some of the discussion about the effectiveness of current stomach remedies, this might be of interest. If you are looking for more in-depth analysis, this is not your book.

Useful information, however, a bit disappointed that most as in 3/4 of the book is references.. I have other books from Dr. Wright and like them.

Never have I been more disappointed in a book before. 130+ pages in the book, but only 39 are actually the book. The rest of the book is the bibliography. Having suffered from reflux for years, I have even had the gastric fundoplication surgery yet still suffer. I was hoping this book might offer some new info, but all it really does is summarize the authors various readings of other books and studies. Save you money and visit sites like Web MD.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I do not recommend this book. It is poorly written in that it is extremely repetative. The author states over and over that chronic heartburn, ulcers and other common stomach ailments are caused by low stomach acid, don't take antacids, treatment can include taking HCL tablets that can be purchased at health food stores but one should consult their doctor before any treatment are tried. There I just saved you both the time and money on this book!!!

This book consists of 150 pages -- the first 40 pages gives very short versions of causes of low stomach acid, what really causes heartburn, and a list of 6 sources to find Integrative Doctors. The rest of this book consists of Notes(5 pages) and the rest of book is bibliography(source information) a ton more of reading....did not like the book...

There is a school of thought that says when your stomach is acting up, stop the acid production. This book has a new school of thought that says when your stomach is acting up, it may not be making enough acid. It is a very interesting book and theory. It has proven to be the case in our family.

In my opinion this book was a total waste of money. It's more of like a booklet. There are only thirty two pages and the rest of the book is taken up in notes. Kind of high price with only general information. No answers.
