LI HONGXIANG

Li Hongxiang (1924-)

One of the 500 doctors chosen for the government’s unsuccessful documentation effort in 1990, Dr. Li has now been in practice for almost 60 years. He is the last traditionally trained practitioner left from the lineage of Wang Shiqing, who was widely regarded as one of the great practitioners of the early-mid 1900’s. Once a vocal proponent of the importance of traditional medicine, Dr. Li became extremely reclusive after coming to believe that contemporary China did not care. A dedicated scholar as well as clinician, he is a master of bringing traditional theories to clinical practice, explaining ancient texts by demonstrating their clinical applications.
