Guest column: Speaker has an important message

Published 12:00 am Friday, June 21, 2002

&uot;What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Breast Cancer&uot; is a new book just available since January of this year. You may be familiar with the internationally known lecturer and author, Dr. John R. Lee and his first book, called &uot;What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause,&uot; which was published in 1996. That was the year I went to hear him speak in the Twin Cities along with hundreds of other women. A friend of mine who is a nurse gave me a ticket and said, &uot;He has an important message for women.&uot;

Since I had found out I had a bone density problem and I thought his talk might relate to that issue, I went. Dr. Lee will soon be in the Twin Cities area again, and he has decided to come to southern Minnesota to share the conclusion of research published in his latest co-authored book covering the need for hormonal balance in women. He has a lengthy bibliography with documented references and welcomes questions that many of us using traditional or alternative health therapies may be asking about the controversial topic of hormonal replacement therapy.

Dr. Lee will be speaking at the Christ Episcopal Church in Albert Lea on Friday, July 5 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. If you want more information, you can contact Sara Aiekens at (507) 373-8757, or purchase tickets at Wintergreen Food Co-op, Leo’s Hardware Hank in Hayward, or The Constant Reader. The Constant Reader has both his books available and copies of the books will be available to purchase and for signing. Bring your own books along for signing or reference. Dr. Lee, who is a retired M.D. living in Sebastopol, Calif., is donating his time for the Albert Lea presentation and the total of the proceeds, after expenses, will be donated to a women’s health cause. Space is limited to 100 people, so reservations are suggested. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door.

I believe, &uot;When you know what your life mission is, and your goals have merit, and you trust God to help you let life unfold the way life creatively presents itself to you, the possibilities can be rewards for all of us touched by the process.&uot; If this quote intrigues you and you’d like to converse on what it means to me, or perhaps would like the story of serendipity of how it is that Dr. John R. Lee comes to Albert Lea, e-mail me at
