I would sincerely like to thank Dr. Keith Woodford. I conceived the idea of writing this article after reading his brilliant book about A1/A2 milk, Devil In the Milk. He is a truly independent thinker and researcher who truly follows what I call the scientific attitude: follow the evidence unbiasedly, no matter where it leads.
Jim Cross graduated with a degree in biology from the University of California at Davis in 1975 and with a secondary teaching credential in life science from California State University, Sacramento, in 1976. Wanting to initially see more of the world and expand his knowledge of different regions and their people, he traveled and worked in Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Taiwan, and Alaska. Having been helped by a naturopath, he became part of the first-year class at Pacific College of Naturopathic Medicine in little Monte Rio on the Russian River in Sonoma County, California. After PCNM folded, he finished his naturopathic studies at National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon, in 1984. He later earned his LAc at San Francisco College of Acupuncture in 1989. He has practiced acupuncture and naturopathy in the tiny Northern Sierra town of Quincy since 1990. He has also taught anatomy and physiology at tiny Feather River College in Quincy since moving there. He and his family are extremely lucky to live in a beautiful area where there are more trees than people and that also allows him to practice the hydrotherapy that he learned in naturopathic school from Wade Boyle, ND, by jumping in the local creek one or two times each week all winter. He also wishes that his mother had lived to see him become a doctor, because she was an RN and his first medical teacher. As a child, whenever he was sick, he was made to fast on ginger ale until his symptoms abated. She also taught him, being the good German that she was, to alternate hot and cold in injuries that he incurred playing basketball in high school and college. His true passion is to open an in-patient medical facility in the Sierra Nevada for people with chronic disease.
Dr. Cross also taught at American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco from 1999 to 2005. He has taught ad currently teaches continuing education classes for professionals focusing primarily on nutrition and its relation to optimal health and treatment of chronic disease. He has taught weekend seminars utilizing nutrition to normalize neurotransmitter function and treat addiction, obesity, and cardiovascular disease. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule speaking engagements.
