I have written extensively for nuherbs, and have had a regular column entitled, "Crossing the Barrier: Applying TCM Food Therapy to American Cuisine" (http://nuherbs.com/resources/herbalexplorations ) that was included in 14 of their news letters over a span of 2 years, and has garnered me a global following. I've received questions and fan mail from all over the world through this. I am currently working with their editor to develop further articles, and cultivate more writers.
Those articles can be found here:
"Crossing The Barrier: Applying TCM Food Therapy to American Cuisine"
I work well with herbs. Better than most, clinically, that have gone to school with me. I'd say better than most of our teachers, as well.
In practice, I employ a Kampo-style abdominal herbal prescription method. EXTREMELY effective. Usually, I use granular formulations (most commonly Honso and TCM Zone), but I also build formulations from scratch using raw herbs. I also make a variety of tinctures and Dit Da formulations.
I also do quite a bit of work with Chinese Energetic Food Therapy--as can be seen both in my writing, and clinically.
Acu-wise, I have spent a tremendous amount of time learning Japanese Acu methods, as well as of plenty of time with Brian Bender (one of the main teachers from the Five Element Institute) learning more deeply about Five Element. Also included is Mokino Meridian Therapy (a Japanese version of Ortho). I'm well-versed in several styles of massage, as well as various forms of bone-setting. I also feel very competent with Auricular Acupuncture.
I have seen roughly 12,000 patients over the past 4 years...and this is all before I graduated.
In December of 2012, I spent a month working in 3 different hospitals in Shanghai on my own. In one of the hospitals, I saw 100+ patients a day, writing only Gao Feng prescriptions (a Shanghainese-style of Constitutional Formulations to be taken over the Winter).
**I work very competently with Psycho-Emotional Disorders, Gastro-Intestinal Issues, Oncology Patients, Dermatological Cases, Sleep Disorders, Stroke Patients, Sports Injuries, Reproductive and Sexual Dysfunction, and any patient willing to employ the use of herbs.
I feel I can treat pretty much anything that walks through my door. While in school, I was the guy that the clinic booked all of the most difficult patients--difficult both as a case, or as a person to handle. I am also the student many of the teachers and staff came to see (mostly outside of school at my home).
In terms of herbal consults, strictly speaking, I can accurately prescribe Kampo-style (abdominal palpation) within 3-5 minutes. If I were just doing herbs in this manner, I could easily tackle 30-60 patients in an average day. Prescriptions are usually dosed at 1, 3, or 5 days of prescription, and then a revisit for modification or change of formulation--potentially seeing a patient 1-3 times a week, depending on the issues being tackled.
I am also an accomplished Natural Perfumer. I've just signed my first big contract, and my application is currently under review to become a bonafied Registered Natural Perfumer with the Natural Perfumer's Guild (http://naturalperfumers.com/ ), which will make me one of roughly 30 Natural Perfumers in the World! Our company's name is The Rising Phoenix Perfumery. Strangely, perfuming has connected me around the world with herbalists, perfumers, and the modern-day Silk Road.
Additionally--I have spent many years working in Film and Television, and as an accomplished model. I can currently be seen in a cameo appearance on "Finding Cody", with Cody Simpson, as well as in the current Star Line Tours print advertising (the Chinese Theater-based Hollywood, Celebrity, and Tour of Homes company) (http://www.hollywoodtours.us/ ). I am also one of the 4 Hosts at the Annual Turner Classic Movies Film Festivals held in Hollywood every year.
