C. S. Cheung, M.D. (retired)

Instructor of advanced courses in Chinese herbology at the Rocky Mountain Herbal Institute.

Biography

C.S. Cheung has translated and published numerous volumes of traditional Chinese herbal literature and is fluent in English. He received his medical education at Lingnan University in Canton, 1954; has practiced medicine, surgery, and herbal health care in China and the U.S.; and was the founding president of the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, where he taught for many years.

Dr. Cheung's experiences during the violence of the Cultural Revolution in China, his Jesuit training as a youth, and his knowledge of five languages has given him a unique cross-cultural perspective and an understanding of human nature that includes a no-nonsense wisdom often lacking in many academics. Unlike Chinese education that tends to emphasize rote memorization at the expense of critical thinking, his background provides him with a solid position from which to criticise some of the more naive tendencies in the adoption of TCM in America.

Dr. Cheung brings a wealth of knowledge and medical experience to his presentation of traditional Chinese herbology plus an abundance of useful insights into Chinese culture.
