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.
Dr. John Lee's book is much more than your typical clinical info about "what to expect when you feel like a fading old bag slogging through menopause", but it does have a great deal of clinical info. But it's really about ALL of the female-related medical conditions that exist. It's for women of all ages, from those in their 20s to those super-seniors in their 80s and 90s. And it's about how all of us of all ages will benefit from bio-identical progesterone cream. The book talks about natural progesterone's history, clinical studies, usage, and how the medical community continues to prescribe fake chemical/synthesized meds because they can't make money from a natural product than can't be patented. Dr. Lee talks about the soaring rates of osteoporosis, breast cancer, etc., and how these are generally man-made diseases in industrialized countries.
Dr. Lee discusses the following: osteoporosis (see the clinical trials in the book that prove progesterone cream prevents and CURES osteoporosis for women of all ages, even seniors) fibroids, cystic breasts, hair loss related to PCOS/androgenic alopecia and hair loss from "The Change", PMS symptoms, and the incredibly uncomfortable changes peri- and menopausal and post-menopausal women suffer through. Progesterone cream is great for breast cancer patients, those who have had hysterectomies, heart disease, polycystic ovaries (PCOS), endometriosis, vaginitis, migraines, cholesterol issues, and those trying to switch from conventional HRT to a natural regimen. Progesterone cream is not a cure-all, but it definitely helps--significantly--with a huge variety of hormonally-related "female trouble" for women of all ages. Bio-identical progesterone cream is inexpensive, does not require a prescription or a doctor's office visit, it's safe, and it works. So that's why your doctor doesn't tell you about it.
Be aware that the low-dose 40mg progesterone cream per day that Dr. Lee recommends is not the recommended dosage these days...he passed in 2003, and since then, there has been a lot of new thinking about his approach. Many menopausal women have suffered through years of estrogen dominance and therefore need what is called a "loading dose" to initially compensate for this. This approach means taking 100mg+ progesterone cream per day without a break for 3-4 months, then trying to take a break of 1-2 days per month and slowly work for a 5-7 day break per month. During the months you start trying to take a break, you might try to slowly (by 10mg per day)lower your progesterone cream dose to the physiological doses originally recommended by Dr. Lee...down to 20-60mg per day is what some women strive for. But some women may need more--listen to your body--there are plenty of women who take 100mg or more per day without ever taking a break--and have been doing so for years without receptor site problems. Please check out Wray White's website for her product NatPro and how to manage your menopause and other hormone issues.
BIG NEWSFLASH...Dr. John Lee's family (he passed suddenly in 2003) now makes their own progesterone cream...it's called ProgesterAll, and you can buy it at his family website, which can be found by Googling his name or the ProgesterAll name...don't know if I'm allowed to post it here, but here it is anyway:[...]
I wish good fortune to all my beautiful Rosehip Sisters, and hope Dr. John Lee's book and its program helps you embrace Your Change with wisdom and light.
POSTSCRIPTS: *If you have interest in Dr. Christiane Northrup, check out my review of the revised 2006 paperback edition of "The Wisdom of Menopause"...Northrup continues to urge women to eat soy products as a phytoestrogenic assist to their menopausal symptoms, but the phytic acid blocks magnesium and therefore creates a huge nutritional and endocrine depletion problems.
**The Remifemin brand with black cohosh has been used in Europe and the States for over 50 years and it has clinical trials backing up its efficacy. It does NOT cause liver problems, contrary to recent concerns [refer to the Reuters Health article called "Study Finds No Evidence Black Cohosh Damages Liver" written by Amy Norton, and published on Fri Jan 28, 2011].

In an era before the latest studies, Dr. Lee was advising against artificial progesterone and the combination tablets that are made of Premarin with artificial progesterone for relief of menopause symptoms. These are not bio-identical and now they have once and for all been proven dangerous in the highly publicized studies.
The late Dr. Lee had nothing whatever to sell except some very important information. You make the best decisions when you have the most competent information.
Dr. Lee's outstanding main contribution was in making known the uses and significant benefits of natural progesterone cream, information you probably will NOT hear from your doctor, since this extremely beneficial natural cream happens to be available over-the-counter without prescription. You can begin benefitting from this cream, available in most health food stores, as early as your 20's or as late as your 90's but as there are many imitation products, you need Dr. Lee's book(s) to guide you correctly.
Unlike the synthetic prescribed "progestins," (fake progesterone), this cream is bio-identical, having the same chemistry as progesterone made by the body. It is derived from plants and is applied on the skin, being well-absorbed.
It is a wonderful supplement with many benefits, the most important of which regards our skeletal structure. For women, bone is automatically and continually lost very rapidly starting around age 50, leading to osteoporosis. This causes many problems such as "dowager's hump", but worse, a fractured hip or spine can be an extremely serious injury.
The progesterone has been well-proven by Dr. Lee to actually REBUILD BONE in carefully documented studies over many years and in the premenopause and menopause books Dr. Lee supplies all of the details as to how this works and why there is nothing comparable available that works as well to prevent osteoporosis. Before you fall for any of the TV-advertised (one stars Sally Field) "bone building" medications, please invest a much smaller sum in Dr. Lee's pre-menopause and menopause books that discuss such harmful and ineffective products.
Dr. Lee's books are thorough and medically detailed, they are not simplistic reading. Please don't let that put you off. If you are a woman, you need this information.
(Also excellent are the books "Menopause Without Medicine" by Linda Ojeda and "Smart Medicine for Menopause" plus every book written by Sandra Cabot, M.D.).
