Acupuncture in Tucson
Hello, welcome to my blog!
I am an integrative medicine doctor, licensed acupuncturist and herbalist in Tucson, Arizona.
My background includes a PhD degree in Physiology & Pharmacology, Master’s degree in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine, Diplomate in Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), 15 years of experience in biomedical research, and previously a college professor in Florida.
In my clinic, I combine traditional Chinese medicine and Western biomedical science to find optimal solutions to health concerns.
I am a firm believer of integrative medicine. Every medicine has its strength and weakness, and no medicine is perfect by itself. The real power emerges when they are combined properly.
Through this blog, I want to introduce you to safe and effective therapies, whether they are conventional or alternative, modern or ancient. I want to keep you abreast of the scientific and clinical data that provide promising treatments and bridge different views of medicine. I also want to help you understand the strength and weakness of each medicine and how to choose or combine them in different circumstances.
I am learning every day. I welcome you to share your insights and educate me.
Health is about making good choices and doing simple things every day.
