About Dr. J.E. Williams

Thoughtful Clinician, Author, Ethnographer, and Teacher

Dr. J. E. Williams is a highly respected integrative medicine clinician who treats and revitalizes patients with even the most severe stages of illness.

His mission is to bridge complementary and alternative therapies with evidence-based clinical science. Melding ancient wisdom and modern science, Dr. Williams dedicates each day to the service of his patients and students, and to working toward a healthier environment for everyone. His vision is to create a new healthcare system based on sustainable medicine utilizing the most efficient therapies with the least side effects.

His integrative practice offers proven natural therapies, including:

  • Nutritional supplements and herbal therapy for chronic diseases.
  • Advanced injection therapies, including biopuncture, neurotherapy, and mesotherapy.
  • Regenerative therapies for skin, spine, and soft-tissue repair.
  • Medical and traditional acupuncture for chronic pain and sports injuries.

Pioneer in Integrative Medicine, Longevity, and Quality of Life

His experience ranges from medical acupuncture to traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, naturopathic medicine, bioregulatory medicine, functional medicine, advanced injection therapies, intravenous therapies, anti-aging medicine, and cell rejuvenation. The emphasis of his practice is chronic viral infections and immune-boosting methods.

Dr. Williams began his career in San Diego in 1984 when he co-founded Ecology Medical Clinic, one of the first integrative medical centers in the United States to focus on allergies, chemical and food sensitivities, and chronic fatigue.

For nearly 40 years, Dr. Williams has travelled the globe in search of cures. He has conducted ethno-medical fieldwork and lived among many indigenous tribes from the Alaskan Arctic to the Andes Mountains and Amazon rainforests.

In 1996, he coined the term “green medicine” to describe his investigations of natural healing practices and medicinal plants. Green medicine includes sustainable, biological, and nutritional therapies that heal the patient without harming the Earth.

Realizing that the best artillery for fighting disease is educating others on holistic living and treatment options, Dr. Williams shares his practical wisdom and experiential insights through blogs, digital programming, and books, making the information available and easily accessible to all health-seekers.

Every week, Dr. Williams writes thought-provoking blogs for Renegade Health. His newsletter, “Planetary Physician,” is geared toward those seeking honest, realistic answers to the most difficult health questions that we face today. In his digital programs, Dr. Williams offers tools for those who want to take charge of their health, including detailed information on blood testing and specific conditions like hypothyroidism and osteoporosis. In his books, he focuses on solutions to big topics like pandemic viral infections and aging, and he addresses the environmental issues that will shape the future of Earth.

Connected to Indigenous Cultures

Dr. Williams also wrote about his work with Peruvian shamans and the search for the soul of healing in his books “The Andean Codex” and “Light of the Andes.”

In 2010, he founded the Ayniglobal nonprofit organization, dedicated to protecting indigenous cultures, their traditional environment, and their intellectual rights. His current projects are among the Q’ero people of the Peruvian Andes and Shipibo-Conibo of the upper Amazon.

Dr. Williams has dedicated his practice to not only helping patients but also mentoring the next generation of doctors. In 1981, he was a founding faculty member of The California Acupuncture College. And a few years later, was head of the Chinese Herbal Medicine and Clinical Medicine departments at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego. In 2006, he taught the first medical acupuncture injection course at the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine.

He continues to teach at leading colleges and universities, mentoring students from all fields of medicine, because he believes that disease is the common enemy of every physician.
