About Dr. Feng Liang
Dr. Feng Liang is the Director and primary practitioner at the Fifth Avenue Acupuncture & Herbs Center. Dr. Liang studied at the Beijing Traditional Chinese Medicine College from 1980-1985 and obtained her MD degree. From 1985-1990, she worked as an internist in Beijing Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In October, 1994, Dr. Liang became a New York State Licensed Acupuncturist and a board certified Chinese herbalist. In 1995, Dr. Liang opened the Fifth Avenue Acupuncture & Herbs Center in New York City. One of Dr. Liang's greatest accomplishments is that she has successfully treated thousands of patients for different conditions and had great success with patients who have had conditions that Western medicine has been unable to resolve.
Chinese herbs are a staple of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). When coupled with acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine can treat many different health issues as effectively as western medicine and in some instances, Chinese herbs and acupuncture can be far more effective than western medicine.
In addition to acupuncture and Chinese herbs to treat your hypothyroidism, there are 4 activities required to allow you to feel your very best: exercise, healthy diet, stress reduction, and detoxification.
Dr. Feng Liang was invited to appear on Manhattan Neighborhood Network TV (MNN) by Josiane Hird. The interview and discussion covered various topics relating to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), acupuncture, Chinese herbs, western medicine vs. eastern medicine and so much more.
We are having unusually cold weather in New York City for the start of spring. Depending on where you’re located in NYC, it may be about 30 degrees. Still, allergy sufferers have felt for the last few weeks that the allergy season has already arrived.
We have just published a new video dedicated to acupuncture for hypothyroidism. To view this video, click here.

One of the biggest complaints people make about their doctors is that they have to sit in a waiting room for 1-2 hours and then once they finally see their doctor, they feel like he/she doesn’t spend much time with them. Unfortunately, the reality is that most doctors are so overbooked, that they cannot afford to spend more than a few minutes with their patients and have that doctor patient relationship that once existed. Is this the doctor’s fault for overbooking? Is this a mismanagement of time? Is this due to an overzealous office manager who books as many patients as possible? All of these are possibilities. However, you, the person who goes to his/her doctor to discuss their health issues and concerns, is not being given sufficient time to discuss these concerns and issues.
Anyone who has been diagnosed with hypothyroidism will tell you that they generally feel tired all the time. This is one of the primary symptoms of this disease. Synthroid, the medication prescribed for most people, is intended to offset the thyroid hormone that the thyroid no longer produces and to bring your energy levels somewhat back to normal. After the Synthroid dosage is tweaked by a doctor, patients are supposed to feel much better and feel somewhat energetic. The problem Is that even though Synthroid initially makes people feel a little more energetic, eventually, people who have hypothyroidism eventually start to feel sick and tired.
Acupuncture does in fact really help people who suffer from anxiety. It is one of the oldest natural remedies for this disorder that has been used by thousands and has a very high success rate. Let’s look at exactly how acupuncture works to address this and why it is successful. Before we do this, let’s look at other ways that people treat and deal with this condition.
