Dr. Lee Cowden Seminar for doctors
Silicone Detoxification, treatment of Lyme disease and other intracellular infections
Dr. Lee Cowden (see bio below) is planning a one day seminar at Plastikos and Millennium
Healthcare in Dunwoody, Georgia on Saturday December 6th from 9am until 5pm. Dr. Cowden
developed this silicone detoxification procedure for women with leaking or ruptured silicone
implants in the 1990's. This procedure is also beneficial for plastic and other hydrophobic
chemical detox (which are often carcinogens and neurotoxins) so it has an important benefit for
any patient who has had exposures to hydrophobic chemicals. He will also be addressing Lymes
disease, other intracellular infections, and alternative cancer protocols. Dr. Cowden is featured in
Insights Into Lyme Disease with an excellent non antibiotic treatment protocol by Connie
Strasheim as well as in Burton Goldberg's Alternative Medicine's Definitive Guide to Cancer.
In order to estimate the interest in the integrative community please indicate if you have an
interest in this course. The fee for the one day course is $125.

I am not able to attend, but would consider attending a similar course in the future ____
Biographical Info
How I became interested in medicine and the type of medicine practiced.
In 1975, I moved from arid Lubbock, Texas to hot and humid Houston, Texas to attend medical
school at UTMSH. Soon after arriving in Houston I developed allergic rhinitis, then allergic
sinusitis, then infective sinusitis, then bronchitis, and finally pneumonia. I sought help from the
chairman of the UTMSH Allergy and Immunology department, then the chairman of the
UTMSH Ear, Nose and Throat department and finally the chairman of the UTMSH Pulmonary
department. I continued to get progressively worse, despite following the instructions of these
chairmen and taking their recommended drugs. Fortunately, my wife's grandmother came to
visit us in Houston. She was a school teacher and self-taught nutritionist. She took me to the
health food store and got me started on some vitamins, minerals, and herbs. I then rapidly
improved and was able to perform well in medical school again.
In my spare time during medical school, residency and fellowship, I read books on

orthomolecular nutritional therapies, on Western herbal therapies, on Eastern herbal therapies, on
homeopathy, on fixed magnetic therapies, diet, lifestyle, and so on. As I learned new things, I
would apply this new knowledge to my own health and the health of my family and friends. The
success that I had with these integrative therapies gradually improved. In 1984, I finished my
fellowship training in cardiology and critical care medicine at St. Louis University and opened a
partnership practice with another doctor who had gone through the same training program with
me. We were on the staff at several hospitals and did hospital rounds twice a day, mostly in the
intensive care units. I saw many of my patients improve to the point of leaving the hospital.
However, after a month or two, many of them were back in the hospital with the same problems,
because they had not changed their lifestyle or diet nor supplemented with nutrients. After one
year of this type of practice, I decided two things. First, I was intervening much too far
downstream in these patients' lives to make the kind of difference I wanted to make. And second,
I realized that I could no longer, in good conscience, practice a type of medicine on my patients
that I then knew was inferior to the type of medicine I was practicing on myself, my family, and
my friends. I then set up a preventive medicine/preventive cardiology practice in St. Louis.
Shortly after that, I moved to Dallas, Texas. I could not find another doctor who had a similar
philosophy of practice, so I rented an office space across the street from the busiest hospital in
Dallas. As fate would have it, my office was also between the elevator and the busiest
cardiologist in town. Many patients came to see me after they left the office of the cardiologist
down the hall, who had a four-month waiting list.
I often recommended nutrients to my patients and would send them to local health food stores to
get their therapy. The health food stores soon started referring patients as they saw my patients
coming in with better and better health each visit. The patients who were referred were those
who had failed conventional allopathic medical therapy and had failed self-treatment. My
practice grew from a few patients in 1987 to four thousand patients in 1994. I had to close the
Dallas practice in 1994. Because of the extreme stress of that practice, my wife, who helped
manage the practice, and I had both developed unstable angina (a heart attack waiting to
happen), as well as likely malignant conditions. I used only natural, non-invasive means to treat
my wife's and my conditions. When I went back into practice after recovering our health, I spent
much of my time travelling and teaching, which I still do to this day.
Areas of greatest interest in medicine.
I have a passion to educate health professionals how to use all the different diagnostic and
therapeutic modalities that are available in integrative medicine to help their patients, especially
those patients who are given no help and no hope by the allopathic medical community.
Therapeutic modalities I have used.
Diagnostically, in addition to the usual allopathic history-taking, physical exam, laboratory

testing and imaging procedures, I have used evaluative kinesiology, Chinese pulse assessment,
sclerology, iridology, Chinese tongue and fingernail evaluation, and various forms of electrodermal screening. Recently, I have found the fully-automated, quantitative electro-dermal
screening systems to be the most useful single diagnostic aid. Therapeutically, I use diet, lifestyle
counseling, emotional counseling, Recall Healing, EMDR, REMAP, Thought-Field Therapy,
orthomolecular nutrient therapy, herbal therapies, homeopathic therapies, fixed-magnetic
therapies, pulsed-electro-magnetic frequency therapies, oxidative therapies (ozone, IV hydrogen
peroxide, etc.), color therapies, laser and other photonic therapies, sauna-therapy, colon
hydrotherapy, lymphatic-drainage, modified fasting and various other detox therapies, German
Neural therapy, reflexology, electro-acupressure therapy, Ki-Iki-Jyutsu therapy, and prayer (just
to name those I use most often).
Health conditions with which I have had the greatest success.
I have had very good success treating non-invasively the following conditions: atherosclerotic
disease, cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure, high blood pressure, all types of arthritis,
chronic fatigue, Lyme disease, Autism, most cancers, type 1 and 2 diabetes, chronic sinusitis and
a variety of other chronic diseases.
