In 1982 she was invited by Kaiser Permenante Research Center as a visiting scholar.

She has been in private practice, specializing in traditional Chinese medicine, since 1992 in Portland, OR.

Book Synopsis

Chinese Home Remedies is a book that offers an intriguing blend of traditional Chinese medicine-as practiced today-and a wide variety of ancient Chinese folk remedies. It contains more than 1,000 effective remedies, a treasure trove of information you can use every day. You'll often be surprised how easily a problem that has lingered for weeks or months can be cured. Making moderate lifestyle changes and following the easy-to-use instructions on how to prepare home remedies, you will see how easy it is to end long-term suffering and experience healthier living.

This book is a distillation of Ms. Wang's thirty years of clinical experiences, as both a physician in China and an acupuncturist and herbalist in the United States. It explains in simple-to-understand language how to treat yourself or a family member using a variety of techniques, including Chinese massage, Eastern food therapy, Chinese herbal formulas, as well as some heretofore unrevealed folk remedies, many of which have been passed down from generation to generation for thousands of years.

Did you know, for example, that:
• Apple slices can ease itching skin?
• Hooking your middle fingers together can stop a nosebleed?
• Sunflower seeds can ease trigeminal pain?
• Eating peanuts can lower your blood pressure?

These are only a few of the more than 1,000 effective remedies that you will find in Chinese Home Remedies. By following just some of this book's advice, you will find yourself on a healthier life path.
