From his bio:
"Ralph E. Holsworth, Jr. received his Doctor of Osteopathy in 1997 from The University of Health Sciences, College of Osteopathic Medicine, Kansas City, MO. He is a board-certified osteopathic family physician previously serving rural and underserved regions of New Mexico and Colorado. Prior to his medical training, Dr. Holsworth served as environmental scientific consultant with the US EPA and private sector firms providing technical assistance on Superfund site evaluation, remediation and environmental cleanups. He received his Baccalaureate of Science, Majoring in Geochemistry from The University of Texas, El Paso, in 1985. In 1977-1981, Dr. Holsworth was a Nuclear Power Plant Propulsion Operator for the United States Navy.
"At Tahoma Clinic, Dr. Holsworth treats a wide variety of health conditions, with special interest in cardiovascular conditions (especially problems related to increased blood thickness that respond to the therapeutic aspects of Nattokinase), auto-immune problems, diabetes, and environmental illness."
Dr. Holsworth's interest in cardiovascular conditions led him to the work of Dr. Hiroyuki Sumi, M.D. (a.k.a. Dr. Natto) who, in 1980, discovered the fibrinolytic effects of Nattokinase, an extract from a traditional Japanese food called natto (fermented soybeans). Since then, numerous studies, including human trials, have proven the effectiveness of Nattokinase at treating blood clots, improving blood viscosity and lowering blood pressure. Having met with Dr. Sumi to collaborate and expand on the clinical and laboratory research, Dr. Holsworth submitted Nattokinase to the FDA in 2002 as a medical food.
We enthusiastically welcome Dr. Holsworth to the Vesta family and look forward to exciting advances in our product offerings under his expert tutelage.
