Other Key Events
In 2009, the former Chinese prime minister came to phoenix. He was introduced to GWCM through the Chinese community because of his lower back injuries. When he came to our clinic in Scottsdale, he assumed Dr. Qingsong Xiao was a man, not a woman and was surprised. Dr. Xiao had to have her brother supervise the treatment because he didn’t want just a women doctor to treat him. However, after the treatment was done, his lower back pain went away.
In 2015 Dr. Xiao began a WeChat group composed of doctors from all around this world. This special group began in response to the treatment of an ER Patient who drowned in the swimming pool of his apartment complex. This patient was an international ASU Student who just arrived at the US from China, two weeks before the incident. He was left in the water for 30 minutes, before Emergency response units pulled him out and took him to the hospital. Dr Xiao was called upon by members of the Chinese community to volunteer and treat him while he was being treated at HonorHealth Scottsdale Osborn Medical Center. To treat the patient, the patients doctor, Dr. Wareing (Chief of Staff), gave Dr. Xiao special permission, which has never been given to another TCM doctor, to give the patient acupuncture treatment twice a day for 11 days in the ER. Because of this treatment, the patient’s vitals got better which allowed him to return home to China to be with his family. Dr. Xiao frequently used her newly established WeChat group to help with treatment plans and diagnoses and this group is now a hub to share information and ask for the advice of fellow doctors all around the world. Now the WeChat group has well over 300 members and is continuing to thrive.
In 2016, Dr. Xiao designed a wellness program, the 5 Elements Health Program, targeting diabetic as well as high risk diabetic population. With grants from local government, the first course was held with weekly acupuncture treatments, herbal medicine, guided exercise, dietary guidance, and lectures including topics on mental health and TCM theories for three months. Data was collected throughout the course and a three-month follow-up period. Researchers reported great results on participants’ improved HbA1c level, cholesterol, triglycerides, hypertension, energy level, mental focus, quality of sleep and more. With this success, the 5 Elements Health Program held two more courses with larger group of participants, giving the research more powerful evidence.
