Zhenggang Guo

    Widely known and respected master herbalist, acupuncturist, and lecturer Zhengang Guo, L.Ac., OM, NCCAOM Board Certified, began his training in Traditional Chinese Medicine by the side of his father, Xiangli Guo, himself a famous 6th generation TCM doctor. Later, Master Guo graduated from Lanzhou Western Medical School in 1969. He practiced both as a TCM herbalist/acupuncturist and as a surgeon and Western medicine oncologist for 12 years until 1981, when he came to the U.S. to do Post-Doctoral work at the M.D. Anderson Hospital and Tumor Institute in Houston, Texas. He then came to the Pharmacy School at the University of Illinois to continue his studies and do research in both TCM and western medicine.

   It was at this time that he started to develop the Life Rising system of more than 300 formulas and founded Ton Shen Health. More than 41 years of clinical experience and consistent efforts have gone into making Life Rising formulas both the first and the most authentic and effective TCM system of herbal formulas in the U.S. This experience has also made Ton Shen Health one of the best TCM clinics for dealing with difficult and stubborn medical cases. Master Guo says: "Our goal is to help you get back to your natural condition of health and then help you stay that way. According to TCM, a naturally healthy condition means that you have no major health complaints or symptoms and also have no need to take medication or other treatments to address those complaints or symptoms in order to feel ‘normal’."
