Michael Traub


Dr. Traub completed pre-med studies at the University of California at Irvine.  He graduated from National College of Naturopathic Medicine in 1981 and completed a residency there in Family Practice and Homeopathy. Dr. Traub was recognized for his many years of service in the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, including President from 2001-2003, when he was honored with the 2006 Physician of the Year Award. His father was a dermatologist, and this inspired Dr. Traub to undertake extra study in this subject and become the leading expert in dermatology in the naturopathic profession.  He has taught dermatology at five of the seven accredited naturopathic medical schools in North America and is the author of “Essentials of Dermatologic Diagnosis and Integrative Therapeutics.”  He has been medical director of Lokahi Health Center in Kailua Kona, Hawaii for the past 31 years.  Dr. Traub is a fellow of the American Board of Naturopathic Oncology.  He has been actively engaged in clinical research throughout most of his career.  His most recent publication is “Impact of Vitamin D3 Dietary Supplement Matrix on Clinical Response” (JCEM 2013).  He is currently a co-investigator in The Canadian/US Integrative Oncology Study.
