Beatrice Liu was shocked when her mother was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer back in 2014.
“She was 80 per cent vegetarian and exercised almost daily,” she explains.
The elderly woman was however adamant about staying away from conventional medicine, turning to alternative treatments for relief of her symptoms.
“Her main gripe with conventional medicine was the pain and side effects. She wanted to live her last days with a better quality of life, not with impaired immunity. As such, we sought alternative therapies like TCM.”
Beatrice lets on that the treatments gave her mother a boost in energy, allowing her to do things like walk the dog. The elderly woman was also less prone to coughs and colds.
In 2016, Beatrice crossed paths with TCM physician Leong Weizhen. Seeing how TCM helped her late mother eventually made her embark on a different career path.
