My name is Lee, and I'm a licensed naturopathic doctor based out of Canada (no longer in practice, FYI). I graduated from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine ages ago.
Back in 2001, I started an online supplements retail business called Vitamin Lee, which I let die a slow death after graduation as I transitioned into private practice in Toronto. However, botanical medicine, supplements, and clinical nutrition have always been where my interests were, and I found myself back in the supplements industry, but now on the branded products side. This is where my passion for the mitochondria took hold, which--to make a long story short--led to this book.
From there, I joined various organizations as a medical advisor, scientific evaluator, and director of research and development. Now, I continue to provide consulting services to the natural health products and dietary supplements industries, in addition to managing scientific affairs for my own company.
I live in the Greater Toronto Area with my common-law partner and our two sons, and have a particular interest in promoting natural health and environmental stewardship.
