About the Author

David R. Hastings Lloyd, R.Ac, R.TCMP & DTCM, is the author of several books on natural health & taoism.

David has been involved with Taoism and traditional martial arts for over 20 years; he has also maintained a busy Chinese medicine practice for 11 years. He has been a member of the Canadian Society of Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture since 2003. David also helped regulate Chinese medicine in his home province of Ontario, Canada.

David's experiences with Taoism & Traditional Chinese Medicine (T.C.M.) came about in an unlikely way in North America. He began learning of it through the Okinawan art of Karate. Before the modernization of many Asian countries martial art teachers were like scholar warriors, they often functioned as town doctors as well as martial artists. In fact, you are hard pressed to find a famous T.C.M. Doctor who wasn't a martial artist or vice versa. David started training when he was 12 years old, and at the time he only wanted to learn how to defend himself. However, he quickly learned that a true martial way had little to do with fighting. It's difficult to explain what his early training was like, because as much as his teacher was like a Mr. Miyagi of sorts, he was also a true slave driver. A lot of sweat and physical effort went into the way David understands T.C.M. Before he knew what he was into David was holding very difficult stances, doing unique push ups, and finding inner calm with breathing techniques.

With no schools for T.C.M. and an incredibly low level of media exposure, David had dreams of one day helping people as a T.C.M. Doctor. He had met masters of martial art that were also Doctors, they appeared to go hand in hand. So, David plunged into the Toronto Chinatown in order to learn to speak Chinese languages, deal with herb shop owners and other martial artists. Since then his passion for medicine has taken me across the country interning with some of the best T.C.M. Doctors in Canada & China.

In late 2006 David was invited to be a peer-reviewer for Oxford University Press at their journal eCAM . Oxford eCAM is a premier medical journal for evidence based complementary and alternative medicine (eCAM).
