Upon his arrival to the U.S. to further expand his academic knowledge, Mr. Liu taught as a Fulbright Professor to Oregon State University and then as a visiting associate professor to DePaul University in Chicago.

Backed by his plethora of global cultural experience, Mr. Liu currently remains an adjunct associate professor at DePaul University. And, following the traditional Chinese Confucian social ideal that if you cannot become an able administrator you should be a fine doctor, Mr. Liu takes advantage of his knowledge of traditional Chinese medicine and culture to promote general health, especially in terms of alimentotherapy, also known as food therapy.

Over the years his company has pushed hundreds of dietary and cosmetic products based on traditional Chinese medicine and nutrition on the market, many of which are becoming popular. He is among the first to introduce serialized TCM products among which are full line of herb teas, Balanceuticals formulas, seabuckwonders (both supplements and cosmetics), reishi, etc. Recently Mr. Liu has created a new and separate company called Alimentotherapy Research & Development Enterprise with himself as general manager, in order to fully realize his promise to bring the best from traditional Chinese medicine and nutrition. He is confident that traditional Chinese medicine, as one of the most outstanding medical traditions of world, that is wholistic in orientation, natural in material source and low cost in practice, nutrition-oriented in approach, with prevention as the primary focus, and balance as the objective, can and should be able to supplement and help conventional medicine to improve and safeguard general health. Through his companies, he is able to focus on educating consumers on health foods and dietary supplements based upon traditional principles in compliance with the FDA’s guidelines.

It is reported that the first product of Alimentotherapy Research & Development Enterprise has just come out: It is named as Instant Super Reishi Mycelium Drink under the trademark of Super Reishi Essence. The main ingredient came from reishi, the legendary “immortality herb” in traditional Chinese medicine and is designed to build up the immune system and balancing various functional systems of the human body. Mycelium is the baby stage of reishi mushroom. The drink is designed as a convenient food item easily incorporated into every life. It also makes a nice coffee-mate!
