About Dr Lai
Dr. Lai was born in Taiwan and
migrated to the States with her family when she was young. Her
father, Dr. Lai Tong Ming, has a doctorate in agriculture. Dr.
Lai obtained her doctoral degree in Chemistry from the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She then researched the
prevention and cure for cancer in one of the top three ranking
cancer hospitals in the U.S., M. D. Anderson Cancer Center,
University of Texas for ten years. During this period, she
realised the limitations of the modern Western medical
approach to cancer. She resigned from her well-paid job to
return to her Oriental roots in search of the meaning of life
and the true principles of health.
years of study and research in the East-West models of
healing, Dr. Lai realized that true well-being encompasses
body, mind and spirit healing. This holistic principle was
intrinsic to the Eastern philosophy of health but was
gradually forgotten due to the influence of Western medicine.
Dr. Lai is a pioneer in promoting body,
mind and spirit healing to the East.
In 1991 she founded Lapis Lazuli Light, a
holistic health education and information centre in the United
States. Currently, there are centres in Malaysia, United
States , Taiwan, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand.
