Did you know that EmpowHER’s Medical Advisory Board is filled with the best women’s health experts in the country? From the former President of the American Society of Breast Surgeons, the founder of Yale’s Menopause Program, to our 38th generation doctor of Chinese medicine, Dr. Maoshing Ni who is with us right now. Hi, Dr. Mao.

Dr. Maoshing Ni:
Hi, Todd.

Now Dr. Mao, you have been developing a strong relationship with our audience here at EmpowHer for quite some time, and I wanted to take a few moments, well, really to talk about you and your background and the tragedy that led you to practice Chinese medicine. Can you tell me about that life-changing accident when you were a young boy that inspired your life work in wellness?

Dr. Maoshing Ni:
Yes, an event that happened when I was a child, I was living in Asia at the time before I immigrated to the United States, and my brother and I were playing on the rooftop of our three-storey house, and I fell.

We value and respect our HERWriters' experiences, but everyone is different. Many of our writers are speaking from personal experience, and what's worked for them may not work for you. Their articles are not a substitute for medical advice, although we hope you can gain knowledge from their insight.
