Dr. Nan's Chinese Medicine Journey
My true love is Physics. If I had followed a traditional path, I would have studied Physics at university. However, in my teens, I had a severe case of cirrhosis. I woke up every morning shedding skin. I went to a local Western medicine hospital, where the doctors put me on an IV for one month. Nothing changed.
I had an uncle who was as close to me as a father. He was a Chinese medicine doctor, and he asked me to come live with him to cure my cirrhosis. I was finally able to go live with him when I was 20 years old. He completely cured me with acupuncture and herbs. He CURED me!
My life changed. Motivated and inspired by this experience, I attended the same university for Chinese medicine as he did and have been practicing now for over 30 years.
