Born from Collective Wisdom Spanning Generations

Spanning several millennia, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has a rich history developed from each generation of practitioners studying nature and life, and entrusting their knowledge to the next generation. Similarly, I received my family's heritage of TCM as practiced by my forefathers over the last seven generations, and I draw from both my decades of expertise in TCM today as well as a decade of experience as a doctor of Western medicine to bring the best care to my patients.

An Eighth-Generation Practitioner of Chinese Medicine

Wei Li, LAc, Dipl Ac, MD(China)

I'm an eighth-generation physician in my family, with 40+ years of clinical experience in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) as well as 10+ years of experience in Western medicine as a hospitalist and nephrologist at the Anhui Medical University's First Affiliated Hospital. Over this time, I've acquired a wealth of knowledge and expertise in treating skin conditions of all types. I started my TCM studies at the age of 12 under my father, opening my own practice within five years, and I went on to study both Western and Eastern medicine at Anhui Medical University, where I earned my MD degree. I have since continued to study traditional texts to expand my knowledge in Chinese medicine. . . . Read More

The Holistic Advantage of Traditional Chinese Medicine

The philosophy of Chinese medicine defines health as a fine balance of many elements, from Yin and Yang of every interrelationship to the flow of Qi at different depths, wherein illness manifests from any collection of imbalances. I consider not only your symptoms and their immediate pathological origins, but also the interrelationships between all the elements of your body to diagnose and treat your presenting symptoms, i.e. branches, as well as their potentially more widespread roots.

Approaching illness otherwise, by managing its branches or symptoms alone, only attempts to stall the disease process, much like cutting off the tops of weeds without killing their roots. Clinical conditions today are commonly treated by chronic medications, with the number of prescriptions often increasing over time as the disease progresses. On the other hand, by targeting treatment at and dispelling the disease's root, the likelihood of recurrences may be signficantly reduced. . . . Read More
