Dr. Lu is very passionate about helping people heal and nourish their lives. His ability comes not only from his formal medical training, but also from his family’s long lineage of medical doctors and healers. The Lu family was ‘Yu Yi or ‘doctors to the royalty’, in the Manchurian Qing dynasty which ruled China from the mid-1600’s to the early 1900’s. Their primary responsibility entailed providing the royal circle with medical treatments, healing cuisine and herbal medicine emphasizing wellness and longevity. Their herbal formulas continue to be used over five hundred years later. Dr. Lu built upon his family’s tradition and honed his diagnostic skills, herbal pharmacology knowledge and protocol design by training with healing monks in Buddhist monasteries. He considers himself a life-long student of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Eastern healing.
