Start Your Day The Herbal Wei

Chief Science Officer – Dr. Wei Yuan

Dr. Wei Yuan R.Ac, R.TCMP, M.Sc, Ph.D

Wei grew up in his grandparents’ house in the historic city Changsha.  His grandfather was a TCM practitioner who owed a herbal pharmacy.  Immersed in traditional culture, Wei developed his ever-growing interest in ancient philosophy, literature and healing practices.  Despite nation-wide “Great Proletariat Cultural Revolution (1966-1976)” outside the window, Wei was fortunately exposed in Taoism, Confucianism and Buddhism inside the house. After high school, Wei was sent to the countryside being re-educated by the peasants.

In 1977, China resumed its higher education system a year following the death of Chairman Mao. With the highest marks of the year respectively, Wei entered the professional program in 1978 and the graduate study program in 1983 at the Hunan University of TCM. Among his peers, Wei was the first to gain the opportunity to study  overseas. After receiving his MA degree in 1991, Wei completed his doctorate in 2000 with a generous scholarship from the Associated Medical Services, Hannah Institute for the History of Medicine. Through many years of university education and training, all related to TCM, Wei received degrees of bachelor of medicine, master of medical science, master of arts and doctor of philosophy.

Wei could have pursued an academic career to be a professor, or he could have become a natural health product examiner with the government.  However, Wei found his true strength and passion is directly working with people, helping another human being one at a time.
