In 1982, Dr. Wright developed the clinical use of bio-identical estrogens, and was the first to use DHEA in private practice. He originated successful natural treatments for the elimination of childhood asthma, pioneered D-mannose treatment for E. coli UTI, and discovered cobalt’s effect on estrogen detoxification.

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.
