Dr. John A. Myers began his quest for personal health as a child as he suffered ill health after nearly dying of diphtheria at age three. His education included a degree in engineering from John Hopkins University in 1927 and later returning to his alma mater to pursue medical studies, completing his studies in 1935.
His training in the use of measurement and control devices in engineering afforded him a unique background, enabling him to scientifically discern functional control in metabolic aspects of disease. He was particularly interested in trace minerals and the interrelationships of the biochemistry of cellular function as well as the application of nutrition to improve the metabolism of the body’s systems. Myers used the teeth and the eyes, the most highly differentiated structures of the body as measuring agents for evaluating metabolic response to treatment. Dr. Meyers was a member of numerous professional societies both in the United States and abroad. He was a Founder Diplomat of the International College of Applied Nutrition as well as an Honorary Board Member of the Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation.
