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 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.
Finding a qualified practitioner who offers acupuncture in NYC is not very difficult. A search in Yelp for “acupuncture” in “New York, NY” will yield 1,000 entries for people/businesses offering acupuncture and related services in the 5 boroughs and New Jersey. You can find this many and much more by doing a similar search in Google. So clearly, there is no shortage of people/businesses offering acupuncture in New York.
With so many acupuncturists to choose from, how do you determine who is the best acupuncturist in New York City to entrust your health to?
Autoimmune disease is viewed and treated very differently by Chinese medicine and doctors as compared to Western medicine and doctors. In this blog, I will explain these differences and how I treat these diseases.
Many people, especially women, enjoy eating lots of salads that are made from raw uncooked vegetables. I realize that this is a way of eating that makes some people quite happy and these people do not appear to have health issues as a direct result of this. However, for others, eating raw uncooked vegetables can have serious health consequences. In fact, many people find it is impossible to believe that after they have developed health issues, that it is related to their eating these raw vegetable salads. I am not advocating that everyone stop eating salads. This blog is intended to explain from Chinese medicine’s point of view why it is healthier to cook your vegetables than it is to consume them raw. And if you are concerned about losing nutrients from cooking vegetables, you can get just about as many nutrients from cooked vegetables as you can from raw vegetables as long as you do not overcook vegetables.
Candida is caused by mucus toxins in our body. It can be detected by a trained doctor practicing Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) by looking at the coating on the tongue. It appears as “thick and greasy tongue fur”.
