I studied Traditional Medicine under a Theravadin Buddhist Monk for the past 25 years. This inspired my formal studies in Melbourne at the Southern School of Natural Therapies where I completed my Bachelor Degree of Chinese Herbal Medicine and Traditional Chinese Acupuncture.
After finding many clinical insufficiencies with the current TCM, I completed an extensive post-graduate education in Canonical Chinese Medicine under the international acclaimed educator and physician Dr Arnaud Versluys PhD director of Institute of Classical East Asian Medicine (ICEAM).
Driven by a passion for seeing better results for his patients, I spent the last 10 years scaling the planet in search of top quality herbs. I had found that in too many cases the incorrect species or very low quality herbs were made available to most practitioners in Australia. I didn't stop this search until I found Andrew Ellis from Spring Wind in the United States and started the company Empirical Health.
Now, in partnership with Spring Wind, Empirical Health is the first and only company to bring pesticide free herbs to Australia. Australia's Chinese Medicine practitioners are very blessed for the opportunity to access these herbs as they are in extremely high demand worldwide.
