Lee Cowden, MD is Dr. Joseph Mercola's personal physician. Years ago, exposed to pollens and similar allergens upon relocating to attend medical school, he suffered terribly but none of the medical-school experts could get him better. It was his elderly grandmother who came to visit and dragged him to the health-food store where she bought vitamins and herbs, taught him how to use them, and to his amazement, his allergies disappeared! This began a lifelong practice in what is called integrative medicine -- combining Western and other modalities for better results. Dr. Cowden now has an institute and provides a curriculum available to any and all for further studies in innovative/integrative healing.
