About Dr. Ann Lee
Dr. Ann Lee, ND, L.Ac. is a leading specialist in natural strategies for fertility. The founder and owner of Health for Life Clinic, Inc., Dr. Lee brings a new sense of hope and healing to her patients, especially those who have exhausted all other options.
Highly trained and skilled in the areas of naturopathic medicine and acupuncture, Dr. Lee uses her passion for education to empower her patients. She brings attention to how simple, positive lifestyle changes can increase their health and directly enhance fertility.
Dr. Lee began her career as a pharmaceutical chemical engineer. She left the corporate world when her parents were faced with the possibility of being on cholesterol-lowering drugs for the rest of their lives. It was then that she knew there had to be an alternative, that she wanted to find a natural path for healing.
Health for Life Clinic, Inc. opened its doors in 2010 as a general family practice, integrating various methods to offer personalized health care to patients in Lancaster, PA. This includes:
- Hormone balancing
- Holistic medicine
- Dietary recommendations
- Lifestyle modifications
- Natural supplements, Herbal and/or Homeopathic therapy
Although her patients suffer from various conditions, from anxiety to chronic pain, Dr. Lee has a passion for treating fertility issues in women. As Lee says, “Many people go through the traditional route of specialist after specialist. It is a joy to help them understand their bodies better, to assist in the revelation that they can actually do something to increase their health and have a better life.”
She takes special pleasure in discovering creative, innovative strategies that produce results for optimal health. Dr. Lee has made the dream of having a family a reality for many of her patients. She is now very focused on ensuring that those working on growing their families pass the healthy habits they learn down for generations to come.
“The cause of illness encompasses mental, emotional, and physical factors that all need to be addressed.”
Truly listening to all health concerns and teaching people how to understand their bodies is part of Dr. Lee’s approach to naturally optimized health.
Infertility is complex because each person’s factors may be different, but Dr. Lee enjoys the challenge. She believes a critical piece is to balance hormone levels, so that women can regulate their menstrual cycles, allowing them to predict ovulation more efficiently. “There are many ways to optimize fertility naturally,” she says.
Dr. Lee’s degrees required four years of study at an accredited graduate level naturopathic medical school, and three years of study at a master-level acupuncture program. Not only is she educated in all basic sciences, her course study also included:
- Clinical nutrition
- Botanical medicine
- Physical medicine
She completed more than 1,000 hours of clinical work and passed professional board exams to receive her licenses.
By being involved from infertility to conception, Dr. Lee impacts the optimal health of entire families.
