Traditional Chinese Medicine Across Generations

Wei Li, LAc, Dipl Ac, MD(China)

Physicians of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) have been in my family for generations before mine under our ancestral clinic name of De Shou Tang (德壽堂), translated as “Clinic of Virtue and Longevity.” I started studying TCM at age 12 by reading the classics, including "Shang Han Lun" (Treatise on Cold Damage Diseases) and "Wen Bing Xue" (Warm Disease Theory), and training under my father's clinical supervision. By age 17, I had begun seeing my own patients.

Decades of Experience in Traditional Chinese Medicine

Disease of the Kidney and Bladder

I have practiced TCM for nearly 50 years today, and taught at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM) from 1992 to 2004. In 2003, I also published my textbook entitled, Diseases of the Kidney and Bladder: Diagnosis and Treatment with Chinese Medicine.

Since then, I have focused my time on patient care in my private practice, with my clinics currently based in Portland, Tigard, and Salem in Oregon. Over all these years, I am thankful to have been able to help so many people in my practice, and I want to continue doing so for as long as possible.

Testimonials from My Patients

“I have been seeing a team of specialists and doctors at OHSU for almost two years. They made no progress in improving my constellation of symptoms. I was bedridden, on a liquid diet, and was being considered for a feeding tube when I started to see Dr. Li. Her acupuncture, herbs, and other treatments have started to give me my life back....” Kara Harbour, Google Reviews
“....I was in the hospital for a week during the pandemic and was critically ill. I needed so much medical support from my doctors but I wasn't improving....I couldn't walk unaided on the first visit....I'm already thinking it might be time to start my daily exercise program now. I cannot tell you how much she has benefitted me and I am so very grateful. I appreciate her humility and how in like one minute she can tell me what is going on and how she wants to fix it. If you are unwell, commit to 5 visits once a week. It's worth a try. I'm guessing it will likely turn your health around.” Kat V, Google Reviews
“I have used acupuncturists for decades....[Wei Li] is, without hesitation, the best acupuncturist I have ever worked with--probably the best on the planet. She is also a gift [sic] herbalist. And very affordable. I owe the return of my organs to her treatments and herbs: kidney, adrenals, liver, and spleen. I owe my radiant health to her....” Dr. Gwendolyn Galsworth, Google Reviews
“I've been going to Dr. Li for over 15 years, and her herbal formulas have never failed to help me. She is truly a master herbalist. Dr. Li always tries to address the root of a problem instead of just treating symptoms. She has my highest recommendation!” John R, Google Reviews
“....Although, my family and I had relocated to the east coast, we have flown (and this time around, driven) back to Portland, to see Dr. Li, when issues have arisen with our children....Since starting her herbs, we have seen a complete turnaround in [my son's] mood and digestive issues....” K N Lee, MAcOM, LAc, Google Reviews
“Wei Li has made a tremendous difference in my health and quality of life! I have been seeing her for about a month now and have been noticing vast improvements via both her acupuncture and herbal formulas. And her ability to be flexible with later appointments has been a life saver with my current work schedule. Never-ending thanks to you Wei Li!” Mary G, DPT, Facebook Reviews
“....[Wei Li] rocks with knowledge in her TCM (traditional chinese medicine) field. Got a great vibe! Thumbs up Doc Li! Thanks for sharing ancient chinese secrets for health!” Maria R, Yelp Reviews
“....I was plagued by mold & algae issues. My medical doctors told me I would not be able to live in the PNW anymore, I had to spend part of the year living in S. California for many years!....[Wei Li] made me a 'formula', I took it, and have not had to move from Oregon any longer. I have lived full time here for years now! Wei Li is a fantastic source for relief from your ills!!! My entire family uses her for help with different pains and disease remedies. We highly recommend Wei Li!” Mary N, Yelp Reviews
“....When I first met with Dr. Li for my Grave's disease, my radioactive uptake was 65% and I had no nodules on my thyroid. After nine months of visits, herbs, and acupuncture, the disease was in remission and did not come back. Seven months later, my TSH went back to normal and stayed there.” Oregon Resident, Age 53
“I had chronic fatigue for three months, and after getting an immune shot, I started feeling extremely sick, and had to stop going to work. After I got one acupuncture treatment and started taking Dr. Li's herbs, the next day I got much better and went to work feeling reinvigorated.” Washington Resident, Age 51
“My kidney function improved a lot after a month of taking Dr. Li's formula. My lab tests showed my GRF increase from 26 to 36, my blood creatinine level drop from 2.4 to 1.4, and my blood potassium level drop from 5.5 to 4.9. I haven't seen these sorts of numbers in a long time, and my edema is all gone, too.” Oregon Resident, Age 81
“I came to see Dr. Li for alternating bouts of constipation and diarrhea, with cramping and bloating. After starting her herbal formula for three days, I began having regular bowel movements and my old symptoms were gone. Altogether I took a week of herbs and got a year of relief.” Oregon Resident, Age 40
“I have seen Dr. Li for the last three years for hepatitis and liver problems. This amount of time I have worked with Dr. Li has made my life much less afflicted by pain and memory loss. She has brought me relief and comfort of life. I highly recommend her expertise.” Oregon Resident, Age 64
