Chinese Medicine & Cancer – An Integrative Approach

Dr. Mao Shing Ni first began his studies in Chinese medicine with his father, Hua-Ching Ni, a renowned physician and author-teacher. After earning his doctorate and Ph.D. in Oriental Medicine and Nutrition, Dr. Mao completed his postgraduate training and residency at Shanghai Medical University and Zhong Shan Hospital in China.  During his residency, it was at the Shanghai Cancer Hospital where he was first exposed to integrative oncology—employing the best of both Western and Chinese medicine for the care of cancer patients. After returning to the US in the mid 80’s, Dr. Mao started working collaboratively with oncologists to help cancer patients cope with side effects from chemotherapy and radiation and improve quality of life. Since that time, he has worked thousands of cancer patients.  Visiting on Late Night Health, Dr. Mao talks with Mark Alyn about metastatic breast cancer and the LA County Susan G.Komen  Metastatic Breast Cancer Conference held in late 2018.

Dr. Mao also began studying centenarians, first in China and then around the world which culminated in the publication of his bestselling book, Secrets of Longevity which has been translated into 22 languages.  He is the co-founder, past president and current Chair of the Board of Trustees at Yo San University and has been the recipient of many awards including The Best of the Bestaward on The Doctor Oz Show and the Acupuncturist of the Year award. Dr. Mao maintains a full-time clinical practice with his brother, Dr. Daoshing Ni and their team of associates at the Tao of Wellness with offices throughout southern California.  Among his eighteen publications is the translation of the Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Medicine and The Tao of Nutrition. His newest book, Live Long, Live Strong: An Integrative Approach to Cancer Care and Prevention will be published in January, 2019.
