James Braly, M.D. graduated from St. Louis University School of Medicine in 1970 and has remained at the cutting edge of new American medical research in natural medicine and laboratory science for the past twenty-four years. Disenchanted with prescription drugs and symptom-oriented treatments, Dr. Braly founded in novative naturopathic medical clinics in Encino and San Mateo, California (1980-1994), specializing in an optimum-nutrition approach to healthcare, backed up by proper laboratory testing. He founded and directed one of the first federally licensed clinical laboratories in the world for testing delayed-onset IgG-based food intolerance. Both through his clinics and laboratory, Dr. Braly supervised the treatment of thousands of people using nutrition-based, nondrug treatments for preventing and reversing disease.
