About


Chinese Medicine News (formerly Chinese Medicine Post) is an info weblog dedicated to reporting evidence-based studies and research on traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).

CM NEWS is unique because, unlike most other TCM blogs/sites, it isn’t linked with any product sales or service promotion. This makes CM NEWS stands out as an independent, trustable, and credible source of information about this centuries-old medicine examined under the microscope of modern science.

I’m a Vancouver-based newspaper editor. I have long wished to build an info website about evidence-based Chinese medicine. This is partly due to the work I wasn’t able to complete a few years ago as an editor of an online health info site on traditional Chinese medicine. That site went under prematurely when the dot com bubble bursted.

With the growing interests in alternative medicine from the public around the world, it is important for them to get informed of the validity and reliability of the herbs they want to take / are taking. I hope my humble effort of building an info blog based on evidence-based Chinese medical studies could benefit people in the long term.

Recently, I’ve been adding stories about scientific studies on dietary and other important scientific breakthroughs in major diseases such as cancers and diabetes — which are not necessarily “Traditional Chinese Medicine”. Hopefully a widened scope of CM NEWS topics could provide patients more insight of their diseases.

Once again, the stories I write are NOT influenced by any sponsored marketing efforts (no pharmaceuticals, no nothing!). I have total control over the editorial content of Chinese Medicine News. I handpick each and every story I think might be of interest to the readers.

The other two blogs I have are:

Meanwhile I welcome any comments, suggestions that you may think would make this blog more useful. Thank you.
