Haorong Yao firmly believes in the principle that “To cure a disease, one must seek its root cause.(治病必求于本)” He emphasizes that it is only by understanding the root cause of our health issues that we can regain balance in our physical and mental well-being, as well as our relationships with nature and society. He believes in addressing the underlying issues to achieve lasting health improvements rather than just treating the symptoms.
