Best Selling Books from Dr. John R. Lee, M.D.
Over a decade ago, Dr. John Lee first published his startling conclusions about conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT): synthetic hormones don't work as predicted and, worse, they pose a health threat to women. His findings touched off a storm of controversy. But years later, research has proved him right. Now millions of women concerned about aging are looking for alternatives to HRT, and finding them in natural hormones, and Dr. Lee's effective, commonsense approach to restoring hormone balance.
Although Dr. Lee died in October 2003, his work lives on in his best-selling books, his audio and video tapes, and on this website, where you'll find a wealth of information about natural hormones, from "Frequently Asked Questions" for beginners, to biochemistry for experts.
The John R. Lee, M.D. Medical Letter was created because every day Dr. Lee was learning more about natural hormones, progesterone and other health issues from people all over the world, and he wanted to share that wealth of information with others. His sense of which research was a scientific breakthrough and which was "nonsense," was unerring, and his analysis was clear and to the point. Dr. Lee also had 30 years of medical practice as a family doctor behind him, and that gave him a wonderful, down-to-earth, commonsense approach to health and healing. He was dedicated to finding the causes behind illness, and would make house calls if need be, to track down what was making his patients sick. Dr. Lee was more likely to prescribe soccer to a teenage girl, or a glass of red wine to an elderly gentleman, than a drug or surgery.
