His textbook Classic Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, soon to be published by Oxford University Press, targets medical professionals.

Tao Integrative Nutrition Store
Dr. Yang believes people should get as much nutrition as possible from clean whole foods, sunlight and quality water. Supplements should be used only temporarily for people having true deficiencies based on careful blood analysis. The important thing is to find out why your body is unable to digest, absorb, metabolize and utilize the nutrients from food. Treating the underlining causes of these deficiencies is critical.
Chinese herbal remedies, on the other hand, should only be used temporarily to correct energetic imbalances of the body that cause mental and physical dysfunction. People should only take them based on the recommendation of trained Chinese herbalists who perform a comprehensive Chinese evaluation. We offer consultations through our network of Chinese medicine herbalists.
Dr. Yang handpicks the best quality nutritional and herbal supplements manufactured in the United States that have been lab tested for their ingredients, purity and safety. Dr. Yang also formulates his own Tao brand of products and offers consultations for individuals who purchase products through the store.
