In this episode, Dr. George is pleased to introduce to you one of his personal teachers and mentors, Dr.Yue Ying Li. He met Dr. Li in acupuncture school where she was teaching. She specializes in internal medicine and dermatology.

In this podcast Dr. George and John explore with Dr. Li how she originally got involved in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). What’s amazing is she was actually treating herself with acupuncture from the time she was only 14 or 15 years old!

Over time, Dr. Li observed how stress and emotions contribute to disease and how, in many cases, we bring on our own symptoms due to various emotional patterns we adopt.

TCM is about bringing back harmony to the body on the energetic level, which in turn affects the physical level and brings balance. This is why the preventative approach of Chinese Medicine is so important.

In addition to sharing philosophical notes about her background and her study of Chinese Medicine, Dr. Li also shares with us some tips for maintaining a positive attitude and ways to stay in balance when we are challenged with opportunities to leave our center.

Also, we talk about food sensitivities: what causes them, and how to resolve them. As a dermatology specialist, we even go into issues associated with aging skin, wrinkles, use of topical steroids, acupuncture and facelifts, dealing with pain, the importance of sleep, and more.

In this episode, Dr. George and John answer more listener questions. This time the questions are focused on beauty…

  • How can Chinese herbs help us take care of our skin,especially as we get older?
  • What can be done about hair loss?
  • Which herbs,supplements, foods, and lifestyle choices can we make to support beautiful skin and healthy hair?

The skin is the largest organ in the body. It is directly connected to the Lungs and Large Intestines, and responsible for 20% of the body’s detoxification process. Knowing this, it is clear how important the digestion and respiration processes are in the body as they relate to the skin.

  • How does gut health affect the skin?
  • Why is the Blood so important in this respect?
  • Which sub-set of tonic herbs is generally helpful for nourishing the tissue that supports healthy blood flow, leading to improved skin and hair?

Other variables include hydration, external environmental elements, and stress. What is your skin trying to tell you about your psychological health? Learn fun facts about your skin plus important behind-the-formula reasons why certain herbs work well together to improve the structural integrity and radiance of your skin and hair.

This podcast may be about beauty, but both men and women can benefit from the wisdom contained within this episode!

Millions of dollars are spent each year on expensive lotions and creams for your skin, but the best skin care comes from nature. Try making your own homemade skin masque from ingredients you can eat. Here’s one recipe that is good for moisturizing dry skin:

Half a very ripe banana (brown spots on the peel)
Half a very ripe avocado
One TBS yogurt
One TBS olive oil

One TBS chopped cucumber

One tsp Pearl powder

Few drops of Vitamin E oil


Mix ingredients in a blender.  Apply a thick layer to skin and leave on for 30 minutes, then wash off with warm water followed by a splash of cold water. Refrigerate remaining mix for up to 3 days.

Dr. George and John have a new podcast ready for you! In this New Year Year’s podcast for 2016, Dr. George and John discuss setting intentions for the New Year through the lens of Taoist philosophy and herbalism.

As they explore this topic, you are sure to have your curiosity piqued about who you really are and what meaning you bring to your life and actions. What is right action? How do you naturally cultivate that?

Through the use of a simple exercise, they demonstrate how to approach the nature of being by stripping down the common precepts and labels we normally associate with ourselves, such that we are left with a more eternal sense of self…

They also read a few of their favorite passages from ancient Chinese texts to further illuminate the nature of self and how embodied experience is much different than mental understanding of life.

In this episode, Dr. George and John and I talk about their “go to” page for anyone who wants to know how their Three Treasures energies are doing.

They often refer people to visit their Three Treasures Analysis page at www.JingHerbsTest.com as this is a great way for you to check in periodically with yourself to see how well your energies are being balanced… or not.

In this edition of the podcast, they explore more deeply the reason why this self-analysis is so helpful for people, regardless of whether it’s your first time using Chinese herbs or you have been using them for years. How does the analysis work?

How can you get the most accurate results? Once you get your results, what’s next?

By exploring all the questions in the Three Treasures Analysis, you can learn about what qualities each Treasure provides when healthy and how to detect when there is an underlying energetic imbalance.

Dr. George and John go through each category, explaining the rationale for the questions and how and why they might indicate deficiency in a particular category, as well as offering tips such as one thing most women need to be aware of on a regular basis to ensure optimal health.

An herbal program differs from many western style remedies because it works on many deeper levels. Find out more by listening to this podcast now!

In this podcast, Dr. George and John go back to basics and talk about that amazing class of supplements: medicinal mushrooms!

You may know something about medicinal mushrooms but in this chapter they really go in depth into some of the lesser known facts surrounding the history and benefits of these intelligent herbs. Written accounts of medicinal mushrooms date back as early as 55 A.D. and certainly have stood the test of time. Now we are learning more about the mycelium and how it is being used to support the immunity of the earth as a whole in addition to supporting the immune systems of its inhabitants.

Remarkably, the digestive systems of medicinal mushrooms are very similar to that of humans! How is this so and what does it mean? What are the specific constituents of these tonics that give them their powerful qualities? How are the various types of mushrooms different from each other and what effects do they have in the body?

Finally, they discuss some characteristics of particular mushrooms: Reishi, Cordyceps, Chaga, Turkey Tail, Lions Mane, and Poria. Get up to date on your mushroom wisdom by listening now!

Out of 140,000 species of mushroom-forming fungi, only about 100 are being studied for their health-promoting benefits. Even fewer are thought to be strong immune system potentiators. As a natural defense against pathogenic invasion, fungi have developed their own strong antibiotics, which synchronistically happen to be effective for humans. This is why some mushrooms help our bodies maintain a strong defense against certain bacteria and viruses.

In this episode, Dr. George and John were fortunate to be able to speak with a modern day renaissance man… Pedram Shojai, OMD.

Pedram is a man with many titles… He is the founder of Well.Org and the executive producer and writer for the film, “Origins.”

In his spare time, he’s also a Taoist priest, a doctor of Oriental medicine, a kung fu world traveler, a fierce global green warrior, an avid backpacker, a devout alchemist, a Qi Gong Master, and an old school Jedi bio-hacker working to preserve our natural world and wake us up to our full potential. Wow…

In this interview Pedram talks about his forthcoming book “The Urban Monk” which describes how we can thrive and have peace in our lives right now wherever we are, without the need to run for the hills or meditate in a cave. This is important information for everyone!

Pedram shared that a conscious connection to your “higher self” or whatever term you prefer, impacts all your decisions. Everything you experience goes through this filter, so having this realization helps life make more sense.

Our materialistic consumerist society feeds the “hungry ghost” mentality and this vicious cycle is never ending. The only way to find peace is to honor this inner, higher connection. Transformational change can happen daily as a result of living out of this conscious awareness.

In this episode, Dr. George and John have another special guest podcast for you. In this episode they interview Daniele Hargenrader, “The Diabetes Dominator”! Daniele is an international speaker, nutritionist, health coach and certified personal trainer whose mission it is to help unleash the inner Diabetes Dominator in YOU!

In their conversation with Daniele, she shared with them how her personal journey of being diagnosed with diabetes in 2001 has led her to a complete health turnaround from obese to athlete, where she now helps others to do the same through the power of choice.

Are all calories the same? If two different foods have the same number of calories, how do you know which one to choose?

In this podcast with Dr. George Lamoureux, we get to the third of the Three Treasures, Shen. In this episode, Dr. George and John discuss two potent Shen balancing formulas.

All the Treasures are important, but Shen is perhaps the most important, since all of these Chinese formulas ultimately are intended to nourish and nurture this special creative and spiritual aspect of ourselves.

Shen relates to the Heart, Blood, and Liver, so the herbs we describe today all affect these organs and systems in the body.

Any disturbance to the Shen has an impact on preventing us from achieving our full potential, so it’s smart for us to keep Shen in balance, allowing us to live fully the life we were meant to have.

The extended name of one of these Shen balancing formulas is “The Emperor of Heaven’s Pill to Tonify the Heart. Can you guess which formula that refers to?

The second formula we discuss is Peaceful Spirit. Who doesn’t need more calm and harmony in their lives? If you suffer from any kind of grief or loss, are in recovery or just want to feel uplifted, you will want to learn more about this beautiful formula.

In this episode, Dr. George and John and I talk about formulas for Qi and Blood.

Qi is considered the “Commander” of Blood and Blood is the “Mother” of Qi, so these two systems are related and that is why we discuss them together.

We recommend taking herbs every day because tonic herbalism focuses on protecting against disharmony and preventing deficiency.

If we are proactive and stay on top of our health, we can stay in balance as much as possible and achieve ongoing health and wellness. If, for whatever reason (usually stress of some kind), we lose balance, then tonic herbs also help bring us back into alignment.

This episode will shed light on various formulas that help to maintain this balance and also address those times when we might feel a lack of energy or weakness in the body.

Some of the formulas we go into detail about include: The 4 Gentlemen, Ginseng & Astragalus, and Ginseng & Longan, describing the activity, purpose and proportion of each of the ingredients, and how they move various energies in the body.

We talk about who benefits most from each of these formulas and also offer tips on how best to integrate a new formula into your existing routine.

Listen to this podcast now to learn why tonic herbs and formulas for Qi and Blood help to raise your vibration, and assist you in making better choices on a daily basis!

This is Dr. George and in our latest podcast, John and I delve deeper into the theory behind building optimally balanced formulas according to classical Chinese medicine.

We start off with Jing formulas, the most important being Rehmannia 6. Rehmannia 6 is an incredibly important “Mother” formula based on which many other formulas have been created.

  • Which six ingredients make up this powerful formula and specifically what does each one do in the body?
  • How much of each ingredient is represented in a standard dose?
  • How can the base formula be modified to address things like excess heat or dryness?
  • How would you know which formula variation is right for your specific situation…including geography?

In this podcast we answer all these questions, including even what time of day is best to take the different variations of Jing formulas in order to achieve their best effect, and understanding how to find a great kidney point on the body that you can press to help tonify kidney energy.

Rehmannia grows in parts of north and northeastern China, and is the main ingredient in the Rehmannia 6 formula. It has been used successfully in Chinese medicine for over 2,000 years, primarily to treat yin deficiency.

In Asia, Rehmannia has been used for many conditions including: allergies, high blood pressure, anemia, constipation, cancer, diabetes, fever, eczema, bacterial and fungal infections, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, insomnia, and pain relief.

This information can even help you build an amazing tonic elixir beverage that suits your particular needs on any given day.

Putting different herbs together in a formula is not a random process. How many herbs are too many? What is the appropriate dosage of herbs in a formula?

In this episode, Dr. George delves deeply into the foundations of the Chinese herbology system.

Do you get confused about the difference between superior herbs, inferior herbs and harmonizing herbs?

What is it about an herb which makes it belong to each category, particularly as it relates to its therapeutic value, potential side effects, how long to use it, and its potential to affect one or more of the Three Treasures ?

Have you ever wondered about all the associations related to the 5 organ systems, such as taste, etc?

In addition to offering a strong overview of all these topics we also give a list of resources for those who want to explore these ideas further. Check it out and listen now!
