Dr. John Parks Trowbridge attended Stanford University as a National Merit Scholar and California State Scholar, graduating in 1970
with an A. B. degree in Biological Sciences. While an undergraduate, he worked half-time in the departments of immunology and medical microbiology for 3 years.
His first book, a training manual on blood coagulation testing
procedures, was privately published in 1971. After training in medical laboratory technology, he attended the School of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), finishing in 1976 with an M. D.
Serving as the first
National Trustee for the American Medical Student Association, he was privileged to address the House of Delegates of the American Podiatry Association in 1975, where he received their Special Commendation
for sponsoring closer inter-professional relationships, complementing a similar award that year from the American Podiatry Students Association. As a student associate in the Division of Research in
Medical Education, he completed a series of 12 color-videotapes on congenital heart disease, still used in teaching medical students around the world.
After a general surgery internship at Mt. Zion Hospital and Medical Center in San Francisco, he briefly studied
urological surgery at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center in the Texas Medical Center in Houston. In 1979, he started a general medical practice in Humble, a Houston suburb. Always curious,
he expanded into industrial medicine, serving the needs of over 50 light- and heavy-manufacturing companies, with concerns ranging from pre-employment determinations to on-the-job injuries to toxic
1980 - 82, Dr. Trowbridge was the chief medical consultant for Texas International Airlines, which bought and merged into Continental Airlines. From 1980 through 1995, he served as an Aviation Medical
Examiner (AME) for the Federal Aviation Administration. The last 9 years of FAA service were as a Senior AME, working closely with commercial airline pilots.
By 1981, Dr. Trowbridge was turning to the intensive study of
how nutritional changes � with supplements and diet � could improve the condition of patients with chronic degenerative diseases ..... the ones for which operations provide little relief, the ones for
which more and more medications are needed for years, the ones that finally kill people after suffering without effective answers or treatments in traditional medical practices.
In 1985, he was awarded a Diplomate in Preventive Medicine by the Medical Research Institute of the Florida Institute
of Technology for graduate studies in nutrition. Dr. Trowbridge became certified as a specialist in the removal of toxic heavy metals by the American Board of Chelation Therapy (now the American Board
of Clinical Metal Toxicology) in 1985 and by the (now defunct) American Board of Biologic Reconstructive Therapy (arthritis and pain medicine) in 1993; he served as an examiner for both boards. He
served as director and officer of the American College for Advancement in Medicine (1984 - 1991) and was awarded highest recognition as a Fellow of the College in 1991.
Dr. Trowbridge also served as
chairman of the board of governors of the National Health Federation in 1989 and as president of the Great Lakes College of Clinical Medicine (GLCCM) in 1995. From 1996 through 1998, Dr. Trowbridge was
program chair for the advanced chelation training seminars in "Heavy Metal Toxicology: Diagnosis and Treatment."
In 2000, he was re-elected to the board of directors of GLCCM
and appointed editor of their newsletter; in 2001, the society changed its name to the International College of Integrative Medicine (ICIM) and he was named as board secretary. From 1992 through 1998, he
served as a charter member of the board of directors of the American Preventive Medical Association. In 1995, he was appointed to the Medical Advisory Board of the Arthritis Trust, having become skilled in
using this specialized treatment program in his practice since 1983. He served as president of the NCR Doctors Association, a group promoting a safe and effective treatment for migraine and other headaches
and painful neck, back, and posture problems, from 2002 to 2003. More recent studies have involved "anti-aging" and life-enhancing technologies, to "add life to your years as well as years to your life."
Popular as a public speaker
and radio/TV guest, in 1990 he hosted his own nationally-syndicated AM radio talk show � "Finally Feeling Better." Of his several published articles, one dealing with life�s stresses for the Rotarian
Magazine was reprinted in several languages. In 1980 - 81, he published one of the first "health newsletters," called The Company Doc. His many accomplishments are recognized in listings in over 3 dozen
volumes of Who�s Who, including Who�s Who in America, Who�s Who in the World, Who�s Who in Science and Engineering, Who�s Who in Medicine and Healthcare.
Among his several books are three bestsellers: Bantam Books�
million-copy-plus The Yeast Syndrome (1986), The Healing Powers of Chelation Therapy (1985), and DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO (1996). A unique "book-on-tape" on chelation therapy, titled LIVING WELL PAST 50:
Rejuvenate Your Heart and Arteries, was released in 1998, featuring 3 hours of patient interviews and "plain English" explanations of the extraordinary chelation program. The Rumble in Humble: Heart
Surgery and All that JAZZ!, published in 1997, reviewed diagnostic and treatment issues in the modern treatment of heart and blood vessel diseases, including "alternative" or "complementary" approaches.
His recent projects include
a book-in-preparation covering innovative and effective treatment strategies for those suffering with chronic headaches (especially migraines) � emphasizing the use of "NCR," Neuro-Cranial Restructuring, a
remarkable technique to rebalance skeletal posture. He is co-author of a paper being submitted to medical journals on a study showing the spectacular success of NCR in relieving migraine headaches without
drugs or surgery.
"spare" time, Dr. Trowbridge serves as the chief medical consultant to a firm actively remediating buildings compromised indoor environmental quality, including problems with toxic mold exposure and
asbestos. Other recent interests include a series of articles on how pilots can use complementary approaches to maintain or even regain their medical certificate, to enjoy many more years of safe flying,
even after disabling illness.
At LIFE CELEBRATING HEALTH, near the Bush Intercontinental Airport and across the street from the Northeast Medical Center Hospital in Humble (northeast Houston), Dr. Trowbridge uses
nutritional, hormonal, non-surgical injectable, and other advanced strategies to help "people to get out of their pain and get on with their life." He encourages inquiries from people suffering with
long-standing degenerative diseases (requiring continuing medication or repeated operations), unusual illness problems, and those limited by or suffering with headaches, neck pains, low back pains, and
other joint injuries or diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, "chronic fatigue," and other "immune system" diseases. For more information ..... ..... or dial 1-800-FIX-PAIN.
