In 1956, Dr. Royal Lee addressed a meeting of physicians and dentists to lay out the principles of his groundbreaking autoimmune theory of disease. An Introduction to Protomorphology presents that lecture in full. In a mere 24 pages, Dr. Lee outlines the basic principles of the concept and even offers his thoughts on the applications of protomorphogens (PMG) in therapeutic nutrition.
This concept was virtually unrecognized by Lee’s contemporaries, and it’s tempting to guess how many of the esteemed professionals in the audience grasped the promise behind the practical therapeutic results of protomorphology. Indeed, all these decades latter, it remains an unexamined medical mystery.
Yet the answers are here for all who seek them. With this booklet, you can join the enlightened health care providers around the country who understand the full truth and meaning of this brilliant theory. As Dr. Lee explains up in his own words:
There is probably no recent discovery in the field of biological science, which has shown in such great promise of prompt and practical therapeutic results as that branch of nutrition as Protomorphology.
Dr. Lee, in a blaze of insight, theorized that there must be a simple explanation for the many complex health problems that plague us. Driven by this idea, and by the research of his predecessors in the field of nutrition science, he arrived at the startling obvious conclusion that chronic disease could be traced back to some missing nutritional element. When viewed through the lens of this theory, we see that chronic diseases and other unrelated disorders have something in common: nutritional starvation. Such autoimmune reactions can be addressed by the judicious use of protomorphogen (PMG) extracts, which can produce dramatic changes in the health of the organ.
Perhaps it is the very simplicity of this idea makes it untenable to mainstream medicine. It is easy to imagine how a new system of treating autoimmune disease—one that relies a little less on expensive pharmaceuticals and a little more on natural protomorphogen extracts—would upset some comfortably established apple carts.
An Introduction to Protomorphology touches briefly on nearly every aspect of Dr. Lee’s theory. To name just a few:
- Acquired characteristics
- Biological category
- Tissue determination
- Growth factors
- Practical use
- Allergic state
- Antibodies (heart, lung, brain)
- Technical reports
This excellent primer that will quickly get you up to speed on Dr. Lee’s most farsighted discovery. A well-stocked practitioner library would also include Dr. Lee on Protomorphogens, a digitally mastered CD of a lecture Dr. Lee gave in 1957. This audio resource offers an even more comprehensive, wide-ranging exploration of the subject, and it makes a great companion to An Introduction to Protomorphology
An Introduction to Protomorphology contains the following supplementary material:
“Rheumatic Fever and Heart Disease” – This historical article demonstrates a practical application of the heart PMG. Applied to assuage autoimmune damage to the heart, the PMG nourishes and repairs the organ in order to “turn off” the autoimmune result.
Dr. Royal Lee: A Brief Biography – Covers Dr. Lee’s early career, family life, and the high points of his career in the field of human nutrition.
Suggested Advanced Clinical Reading – A list of books and articles by Dr. Lee and his contemporaries that practitioners of today would do well to read.
