researched East Asian civilizations and Chinese medicine for 30 years.
After studying comparative literature, philosophy, sinology, and Chinese
medicine at universities in Germany, China, Japan, and the United
States, he received a Ph.D. from the Dept. of East Asian Languages and
Civilizations at the University of Chicago. During five years in China,
he researched Chinese medicine both within the institutionalized TCM
model (Chengdu University of TCM), as well as the traditional lineage
system that continues to function outside government schools.

Chinese Medicine at National College of Natural Medicine, where he has
taught and practiced since 1992. He also has an active private practice
in the Columbia River Gorge area, specializing in the treatment and
prevention of chronic, difficult, and recalcitrant diseases with Chinese
herbs. His interest in preserving some of the traditional features of
Chinese medicine led him to develop a database dedicated to the

chronic and difficult diseases. A selection of his publications, as well
as archived video lectures by him and other contemporary scholar
physicians can be accessed at www.ClassicalChineseMedicine.org.
