Integrating Modern and Traditional Methods For Optimal Health
Dr.Zhang, Zhang Clinic and the Protocols
Developing an Integrative Approach to Patient Care and Wellness Maintenance
Upon graduation from Shanghai Second Medical University in 1962, Dr.Zhang worked as a physician at The Reijing Hospital of Shanghai Second Medical University. His clinical work and research focused on combining the most effective parts of TCM and modern medicine to maximize clinical efficacy and quality of life for the patient.
In 1980, he was awarded a World Health Organization scholarship which resulted in a two-year fellowship at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital.
In 1991, Dr.Zhang founded the Zhang Clinic in NYC. At that time, he was primarily focused on using Allitridi, the chemical pre-cursor to Allicin, and other anti-microbial compounds to combat difficult-to-treat infections.
Garlic, Allicin and Allitridi:
Allicin is the major anti-microbial compound found in garlic. Allitridi is the more chemically stable pre-cursor and metabolizes into allicin after ingestion. Dr. Zhang realized that the key benefit in allitridi was the much higher bio-availability, which make it a powerful and stable anti-microbial agent.
Allitridi, Allicin and Early Work with HIV/AIDS Patients:
During the late 1980s and early 90s, Dr.Zhang discovered that allitridi was quite effective against many of the common opportunistic infections that threaten late-stage HIV/AIDS patients. During an era where very few treatment options were available, many of these patients were able to achieve longer life spans with relatively good Quality of Life by adding allitridi to their treatment protocol.
Transition to Lyme and Co-infections
With the fast growing rate of Lyme infections across the U.S., many patients are left with few options besides long-term use of antibiotics against this difficult-to-treat infection.

LYME DISEASE AND MODERN CHINESE MEDICINE
"From what I have read to date, the authors have done an outstanding job with combining traditional Chinese medicine and Western medicine together."

From her own experiences, Dr. Virginia Sherr, M.D. wrote:
"Tell your colleagues that Chinese medicine might be one way to help enhance the clinical outcomes of Lyme treatment."
