Trowbridge, John Parks, MD


“Dr. T” – as he’s affectionately known for 39 years – claims he’s “just getting started,” now asking better questions and finding superior answers for healing your body. An Eagle Scout, National Merit and California State Scholar, he concentrated on immunology and molecular biology at Stanford University. “Medical school was so much fun I’d have been a permanent student if they just paid me,” he recalls about Case Western Reserve University.

Entering general practice in 1978, he became a busy “industrial physician” serving 53 area companies, also chief medical officer of Texas International Airlines. Plans changed: disheartened with risks, reactions, and limited results from drugs and surgery, Dr. Trowbridge explored other approaches. A master’s degree in nutritional medicine launched him on a journey with extraordinary state-of-the-art tools to repair illness and promote health. Lingering questions: why and how do people get sick? Dr. T prowled around and stumbled on obscure toxic heavy metals (pollution!), becoming a preeminent educator in chelation therapy, the exclusive FDA-approved treatment. Further: unrecognized devastation by internal yeast, creating discomforts and diseases in 40% of Americans. Innovative treatments in his 1986 bestseller The Yeast Syndrome are acclaimed around the world.
Enthusiastic for patients to get exceptional care, Dr. T lectures across the country, in Canada, Mexico, Taiwan, Brazil. His predictable success with “puzzling” patients is endorsed in over 5 dozen volumes of Who’s Who – and by a Distinguished Lifetime Achievement Award from the International College of Integrative Medicine.

Dr. Trowbridge hesitates to reel off awards and distinctions and professional organizations he has served as president. “Honors don’t matter,” he explains, “only the vitality and joy I produce for each unique patient.” Busting out of the box: “My clinical research focuses on identifying and treating diseases from unsuspected parasites (including plant fungus, of all things!), dramatic rejuvenation with specialized stem cells, reversing heart disease, repairing all joint pains without surgery, literally the list is long.”

His CDs, DVDs, books, articles, and lectures have opened eyes to healing beyond drugs and surgery. “I’m also proud of medical politics contributions: as a med student, I got leaders in the AMA and Podiatry talking. Three years later, foot specialists were permitted to operate in “our” hospitals.”

The catchphrase for Life Celebrating Health in Houston has long been “When life is your choice, failure is not an option.” Trowbridge proclaims that every patient deserves leading-edge breakthroughs in diagnosis and treatment: “Find it now – fix it right!”
