The late Dr. Lee had done his homework even after medical school ended and it showed within both of his books. Everything is explained simply, concisely, thoroughly and in easily understandable terms.
Topics include: biochemistry of the body and synthetic drugs and hormones, mechanisms of the body, glands and functions, the estrogen myth and results of HRT study, female cancers and causes, autoimmune disorders, pros of natural progesterone and details of all relevant hormones, the pharmaceutical community and conventional medicine practices, illness and natural prevention, nutrition and exercise, osteoporosis and bone re-building, vitamins, herbs and minerals, heart disease and strokes, insulin and glucose, thyroid problems, liver health and many, many more that tie everything together so sensibly.
Without the specific label of a holistic doctor, Dr. Lee obviously believed and practiced a more natural way for his patients to live with optimal health and well-being. His books attest to the facts that natural is always best; synthetic drugs will always have side effects because they are foreign substances to our bodies; radical surgery is not always the best answer and menopause is not a to-be-feared disease.
I have been to 3 board certified family practice docs or internists since my uterus had its retirement party. I had a bone density test 5 years ago which indicated osteopenia-the doc said to just take calcium with Vitamin D. It burns me up that none of them ever mentioned bio-identical hormones to me, even though every symptom I have complained of points to hormone imbalance. The fact is, progesterone protects us from breast cancer, uterine cancer, and osteoporosis. In fact, if you don't have progesterone on board, the calcium & vitamin D are largely futile. It burns me up that I had to discover all this on my own. When I took the hormone test results to my own physician (who I like and respect a lot) he gave it a cursory glance and said "This is not mainstream medicine. You do not need hormone therapy. This is a normal part of aging".
So, ladies, if you are like me, having trouble losing weight, having unexplained fluid retention, having itching skin, and fatigued from inability to sleep more than 4 hrs/night, read this book (and order a test kit to document your hormone levels). This all occurs gradually, so you don't realize you feel like crap-you accept it as normal. I'm happy to say that I found a doctor who understands this enough to prescribe bio-identical progesterone for me, and the Adreno-Mend, and to say: You have got to normalize your sleep cycle to overcome the adrenal fatigue. I'm sleeping 7-8 hrs/night now, my skin does not itch, fluid retention is reduced, all the symptoms that I accepted as normal have subsided or disappeared. Don't be ignorant like I was, read this book!
