Dr. Xianen Wang
Chairman, American Institute of Eastern Medicine
Dr. Wang was born in China’s rural Anhui Province in 1961, the son of a farmer. His interest in medicine was peaked when his father became ill and medical treatment was not readily available. Dr. Wang then focused his studies on medicine, and in 1984 graduated from Anhui Medical University. He went on to complete his master’s degree at Tongji Medical College in 1988. Dr. Wang’s master’s thesis was Treatment of Emergencies such as Diffuse Intravascular Coagulation with Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Dr. Wang then engaged in research and clinical practice of Sino-Western medical syncretism (fusion of the Japanese adaptation of traditional Chinese medicine and modern Western medicine) at Tongji Medical College’s hospital and at the Institute for Research on Sino-Western Medical Syncretism.
In 1991, Dr. Wang transferred to the Digestive Organs Department of Internal Medicine at Chintse Medical University where he conducted research on the analysis of Type-C hepatitis gene forms and the function of Itoh cells.
Dr. Wang enrolled in Japan’s Juntendo University School of Medicine in 1993, completing his doctorate in medicine in 1997. He specialized in Sino-Western medical syncretism therapies for intractable illnesses. Dr. Wang’s doctoral thesis was titled Mechanisms of Liver Fibrosis; Gastric Mucosal Cell Injury and Repair Mechanisms.
To date, Dr. Wang has focused his medical inquiries on allergies and diabetes. Areas of imminent interest include intractable diseases and organic illnesses, such as rheumatism. He has also found clinical results in the areas of: asthma, nephrosis, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, skin diseases, arthritis, depression, migraines, insomnia, tinnitus, and even cancer along with improvement of side effects that come with chemotherapy or radiation treatments of cancer.
Dr. Wang was granted an Assistant Professorship at China’s Tongji Medical College in 1995, and became a Full Professor there in 2002. In December 2005, he became the first foreign Assistant Professor in Japan’s clinical medicine, with an Assistant Professorship at Juntendo University’s School of Medicine. Dr. Wang’s teaching is concentrated on studies of the liver and stomach.
Dr. Wang’s interest in treating allergies stemmed from his observation of fellow professors suffering from allergies. This, coupled with the lack of effective treatment, led him to author the book Improvement of Allergic Predisposition, published in Japan in 2006. This book proposes alleviation of allergy symptoms through herbal compounds.
Dr. Wang became involved in pursuing viable diabetes treatments when he noticed diabetes cases were on the rise, with increasing numbers of patients suffering and dying from complications. Developments of insulin and oral blood glucose lowering agents did not lower the occurrence of the disease. Genetic and molecular therapies only provide local treatment for certain symptoms.
Dr. Wang’s approach to diabetes incorporates treatments to lower blood glucose levels with constitution improvement agents, the combination of which will elicit improved efficacy of diabetes treatment. He formulated a proprietary herbal compound that has been widely used in China and Japan to treat diabetes for over 20 years.
Dr. Wang’s ongoing involvement in diabetes is practical and solution-oriented, emphasizing studies that will directly alleviate patients’ pain, rather than studies for purely academic purposes. He wrote a book on diabetes treatment methods.
Dr. Wang first visited the United States in 1997. He enjoys Chinese literature, and writes a column that is published in Chubun Doho. His practice is unique in his methods of combining traditional eastern medicine with the most up-to-date medical procedures, such as MRIs and CT scans for diagnostic purposes. It is not uncommon to find him combining TCM with acupuncture, western medicines, or prescriptions. He is a qualified expert in the ares of internal medicine, surgery, gynecology, pediatrics, as well as treatment of recurring and especially difficult diseases.
