Ms. Benvegnu has experience prescribing Standard Process products since 2011. These whole food supplements are designed by a genius engineer, Dr Royal Lee. (He was the top expert who engineered U.S. submarines used in WWII.) All ingredients in these products are grown in Wisconsin, cold-processed there in hardware designed by Dr. Lee. These products give outstanding results.

Claudia has studied herbal prescription for over 10 years with Dr C.S. Cheung. He is one of the best translators of medical Chinese into English in the world. He also practiced as a surgical M.D. in the U.S. His books discuss in detail how master herbalists in China have cured the most serious diseases.

Dr. Benvegnu completed a Ph.D. in Biochemistry (1988) doing medical research for 10 years before entering acupuncture school. For a short time during her studies, she had the privilege to work for Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn, the Nobel prize winner who discovered how telomere length relates to aging. Claudia is very interested in recent scientific discoveries which relate to medicine including mind-body awareness.
