About the author:
Dr. Lifang Liang, O.M.D., Ph. D., L. Ac. received her M.D. from the Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine, where she studied both Western and Chinese Medicine. After six years of specialized training in gynecology, she practiced and taught at the medical school for 14 years. In 1989 Dr Liang came to the United States to conduct research on in vitro fertilization at the University of Texas. Subsequently she taught at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. For over 35 years, Dr Liang has worked closely with infertility specialists and OB/GYN physicians to treat infertility and gynecological conditions using both Chinese and Western medicine. The results of her training and her research and clinical work feature prominently in this text. It contains the latest information from both Western and Chinese medicine on major gynecological diseases. The Chinese medical treatments featured give practical strategies and case studies that guide practitioners in their use either as stand-alone therapy or with ongoing Western medical therapies.
With 35 years of clinical experience, Dr. Liang now works closely with infertility specialists and OB/GYN physicians to treat infertility and gynecological conditions by integrating Chinese and Western medicine. Currently, she teaches in the Doctoral Program at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and provides an opportunity for students and acupuncturists to train in her private clinic in San Francisco.
Her first book, Acupuncture and IVF, is now in its sixth printing and was published in Germany after being translated in German.

“In this comprehensive text, Dr. Liang shares her medical knowledge in the often daunting challenge of women’s reproductive medicine. She thoroughly reviews each major gynecologic diagnosis and treatment with the thoughtful expertise that only 35 years of practice can provide. Many of my patients have benifitted from the combination of traditional Chinese medicine and Western medicine. It is with great honor that I present Dr. Liang’s latest labor of love.”
