Our Candidates and Graduates' Stories


Remembering Elizabeth Ohm

For her Yo San University doctoral dissertation/capstone project Elizabeth completed a monumental research project that included a retrospective review of 120 clinical charts to explore the impact of a unique herbal formulation (Qing Bao Zhu Yu Tang) on the condition of endometriosis. Elizabeth was an invited speaker on women's health issues at a number of international conferences.

Meet Dr. Debbie Rodriguez Debbie’s research project motivated her to read intensely and gather data from sources that ranged from ancient classic texts to current randomized controlled studies, as well numerous articulations of theory and research in between. From her research Debbie achieved a renewed respect for the time-treasured foundational theories of TCM. 
Stener-Victorin Event Draws National Participation TCM practitioners from all over the country participated in the April 14, 2013 continuing education event conducted at Yo San University by distinguished fertility researcher Elisabet Stener- Victorin, Ph.D. Thirty five eager acupuncturists from both Northern and Southern California, and from points well beyond including Chicago gathered in the Yo San University Qi studio for the Event. 04/17/2013
Dr. Kumiko Yamamoto Kumiko feels strongly that the benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) are maximized through the simultaneous practice of qigong. As a result, above and beyond the extensive qigong training that she experienced through the Master’s Degree program at Yo San University, Kumiko also engaged additional trainings that led to certifications in Harmony Tai Chi, Crane Style Qi Gong and Tai Chi Sword forms. With extensive externship placements at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Premiere Oncology, and Venice Family Clinic, by the time she graduated Kumiko was experienced in treating a wide range of patients and conditions.  12/20/2012
Nutrition, Disney, Deepak Chopra As her TCM career developed, Lori found herself in diverse roles including those of traditional acupuncturist in private practice and spa-based practitioner. Entering and completing the Yo San University DAOM Program with a specialty in fertility studies was the next logical step in Lori’s career, because she had developed a strong interest in reproductive medicine, both from a Western and Eastern medicine perspective. 12/30/2011
Frequent Flyer, Fertility and Fate Paula only considered it fate when she saw an announcement of a new doctoral program at Yo San University in Los Angeles with a specialty focus in Fertility Studies/Reproductive Medicine. In spite of the distance between Fairbanks, Alaska and Los Angeles, California, Paula was determined to be a part of the program. The intensive one weekend per month modular format sealed the deal for making the focused education that Paula so eagerly desired a reality.  12/29/2011
Dr. Jessica Chen and The Sitting Moon Dr. Chen, who is an associate in the busy Tao of Wellness practice collaborated with professional mentor and DAOM Faculty member, Dr. Daoshing Ni on the book, Sitting Moon: A Guide to Rejuvenation After Pregnancy. The book provides sound advice on how women can safely and quickly recover both energy and health after having a baby. The “moon” in the title of the book refers to the one month of recommended rest after delivery—a period of time that allows a woman to regain the strength that she has given to her baby in the gestation and childbirth processes.  12/29/2011
DAOM Graduate’s Expertise Spans both Female and Male Infertility Factors Entering and completing the Yo San University Doctoral in the Reproductive Medicine specialty was a natural and logical step for the ever inquiring young practitioner. In the Yo San University DAOM Program Virginia expanded her knowledge considerably by focusing a good deal of her own research activity on the factor of male infertility. Virginia’s DAOM Capstone research project synthesized the results of prior research on the effects of TCM on sperm parameters with focus on DNA fragmentation. 12/28/2011
Active Army Service Leads to a Passion for Reproductive Medicine With a husband, three children and a busy household in San Diego, those monthly freeway trips between San Diego and LA did not allow time for shopping breaks at South Coast Plaza. While there were lots of sacrifices and a ton of work (with commensurate learning) in the two year program, Gila expanded her knowledge and skills considerably. Besides developing a close network and supportive community of like-minded TCM colleagues among her fellow doctoral candidates and faculty members, Gila engaged numerous clinical experiences that greatly expanded and sharpened her skills and repertoire of approaches for treating the wide range of factors that impact fertility. 12/27/2011
