According to Lorenzo Puertas, Director of Quality & Safety at Nuherbs, in the United States Chinese herb regulation is very poorly understood."There's tremendous ignorance," Puertas contends."We erroneously assume the industry is as new as ours, but even worse because it's happening in a developing country."As a result, many consumers in the US are not willing to put their faith in Chinese herbal medicine.

Indeed, China has thoroughly regulated herbs cultivated for TCM."There's a tremendous wealth of herb knowledge and regulation in China, but because of the language barrier, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) acts as if herbs are a complete unknown," Puertas said.

Lorenzo Puertas, L.Ac. Lorenzo Puertas is an acupuncturist and health care entrepreneur dedicated who is pioneering a radically different model of health care services.
In 2003, he co-founded Lolo Health, an integrative health clinic that combines many medical traditions in a team environment. At Lolo Health, acupuncturists, medical doctors, yoga teachers, chiropractors, massage therapists, psychologists, and other health professionals work together in an environment of mutual respect and support. For the past 10 years, Lorenzo and his team at Lolo Health have been developing new models for both the clinical and business aspects of health care - models that combine the best of many medical systems in a business model that doesn't depend on donations, grants, government assistance, or the broken health insurance industry. Calling it "grass roots health reform", Lorenzo has created a unique membership model that creates a community of health, where doctors and patients are true partners in making health care more accessible, more affordable, and a whole lot more effective and engaging.
Lorenzo's vision for Lolo Health draws from his experience with many world health traditions, and also from his work as an acupuncturist, as an EMT on an ambulance in Alameda County, and as a U.S. Navy corpsman with the Marine Corps infantry. He has been editor in chief of the California Journal of Oriental Medicine, and has served on the boards and committees of the California Society or Oriental Medicine, the American Herbal Products Association, and American Association of Oriental Medicine.
