Fibrocystic Breasts... A Cure?

John R. Lee, M.D. treated Fibrocystic breasts successfully with natural progesterone!


Dr. John Lee, an expert in bio-identical hormones noticed that his patients with fibrocystic breast were often estrogen dominant (high levels of estrogen and low progesterone). In his experience, using natural progesterone routinely solved the problem. He also recommended adding Vitamin E, magnesium and vitamin B6.

Once the cysts have cleared up, the dose of progesterone can be reduced to the  smallest

dose that is still effective each month and continue the treatment as needed through menopause. This type of treatment is safe, inexpensive, successful and natural!

"I cannot recall a case in which the result
(from treatment) was not positive."

John Lee, M.D.

Dr. Lee’s suggest using 1/8-1/4 tsp twice daily from day 12 of the monthly cycle to day 26.
