The Shen Nong Society is an organization formed to support the vital and committed community of practitioners of East Asian medicine who design and recommend individualized formulations of herbs and natural products for their patients. These recommendations are based on the over 2000 years of practice traditions that have spread from China to Japan and Korea and throughout East Asia and evolved over time. We are devoted to helping our patients through the use of Chinese and East Asian medicine (or Oriental Medicine), and our community needs to be well informed regarding all issues that impact our ability to serve the public through our practice.

The Shen Nong Society provides educational opportunities including, but not limited to: conferences, websites, blogs, bulletins and newsletters.
