Born and raised in a traditional family in Beijing, I have the fortune to be immersed in a culture of Chinese medicine since childhood. Chinese medicine has been a natural part of my life, and I have studied with several renowned Daoist alchemists, Qi Gong masters, and Chinese medicine practitioners for many years before my study of classical Chinese medicine at National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) in Portland, Oregon.
By gaining knowledge in both biomedicine and holistic medicine over the years, I have become aware that mainstream Western medicine has adopted a deductive view on how to treat diseases. However, this perspective has led its medicine to a pharmaceutical-surgical based approach of symptom management, which has revealed many shortcomings and disadvantages. Sometimes the side effects of medications burden the body a lot more than the diseases themselves do.
