Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important. With modern technology, people have developed medicines and practices that allow us to have longer, more fruitful lives. However, despite big advances of modern medicine in fields such as emergency care, surgery, and vaccination, it remains a segregated science. Physicians in the most specific fields of cardiology, neurology, urology, and dermatology, etc. concentrate on diseases of only the particular organs that are within their specializations. Doctors know what organs are failing, but they don’t know why. Little is done to search for the initial causes of diseases.


When we treat symptoms, not the root of the disease, a fundamental law of medicine is ignored. Our organism is able to live and operate only because of the indisputable connection and interaction of ALL organs.Therefore, the most valuable part of any holistic, non-traditional medicine is not only prevention and early diagnosis of disease. Finding and treating ‘The Root Cause of the Disease’ is the essential principle of medical teachings of antiquity that holistic practitioners try to follow.


That is exactly the reason why the so-called “non-traditional medicine” attracts so many people, including western doctors.


Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is one of such holistic, non-traditional medical approaches. Here in the United States, TCM is known through acupuncture and medicinal herbology.


Chinese medicine teaches us that our bodies contain a network of pathways where vital energy flows. Those pathways are called meridians and energy is called Qi (or Chi). When meridians get obstructed, then energy flow is disrupted, and ailments occur.


Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin, sterile needles at specific body points. The therapeutic effects of those points reestablish energy flow and bring your body back into balance. 

Medicinal Herbs

No remedy on this planet is as ancient as herbs. Several thousands of years of collected knowledge regarding qualities of medicinal herbs are used by holistic practitioners today. Various herbs are mixed into formulas based on certain fundamental principles. These formulas influence your body’s physiology and pathology.

Lic. Acu, Diplomate O.M.

Valery Yuabov received both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Computer Science from Queens College of CUNY in 1983 and 1986 respectfully.


In 1993, his mother Ester was diagnosed with fourth stage of cancer. As for treatment, she agreed to surgery only,

refusing to undergo any chemo and radiation.


On the advice of her relative, Ester and Valery traveled from US to their homeland Uzbekistan to meet a holistic practitioner and herbalist. Meeting with Doctor Mukhitdin Umarov was a turning point in lives of both mother and son.

Mukhitdin Umarov was a doctor in a true sense of this word. His amazing pulse diagnostic abilities and in-depth understanding of a human body were acknowledged worldwide. In his village-like town of Namangan, Mukhitdin treated about 150 patients a day!


With help of medicinal herbs, Doctor Umarov assisted Ester to stay in relative health close to 5 years. During mother’s treatment and for 15 years after her passing, Valery was the doctor’s apprentice. That included times spent in Uzbekistan and during doctor’s visits to New York City.


In 2017, Valery graduated from New York College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (NYCTCM) in Mineola, New York. He graduated with a Masters in Acupuncture and, then returned to NYCTCM to complete his studies in Oriental Medicine with Masters in Herbology.


Valery practices acupuncture and herbology in own clinic as well as other clinics.


During our initial meeting we try to determine the underlining (root) cause of your illness.

One of the invaluable parts of patient’s examination in Pulse reading and Tongue diagnosis.


As one ancient pulse book states: “Disease follows the pulse”. To Eastern (Humoral, Chinese) Medicine practitioner that means that through pulse taking one can pick up hidden symptoms of an ailment before they become evident.

Would you like to be relatively healthy until an old age?

What if to achieve this, you were asked to be physically active and routinely visit a holistic practitioner?


This is precisely how some current Holistic doctors establish a doctor-patient regimen.

A patient routinely visits a practitioner who helps keep him or her in good health.


If a patient gets ill, it means that the practitioner missed the onset of a disease.

He now has to continue treating the patient for free, until the patient is fully recovered. After that, the routine continues.


Prevention Is The Best Medicine


Chronic diseases are consequences of bodily disorders that happen for many years. Most of the time, such disorders occur and flow unnoticed. Some of the methods used by holistic practitioners, like pulse and tongue examination, may help detect dysfunctions early on. Then, treatment with acupuncture and/or medicinal herbs will help reestablish normal bodily function.
