Dr. Lee’s Bio
She is passionate about providing advanced and effective cancer therapies with minimal toxicity by integrating the wisdom of other traditional healing practices into Western medicine. Her interest in complementary medicine started at young age when she watched her father practice acupuncture in patients who were failed by Western medicine. He taught her that a strong and well-balanced immune system is the foundation of good health and emphasized the importance of diet and nutrition for longevity. He is still alive and well at 99 years of age and continues to be her rock and source of inspiration.
