A naturopath has denied breaching the Medical Practitioners Ordinance by falsely using the title 'doctor'. Alexander Yuan Tai-ming, 47, who trained as a naturopath - treating diseases without drugs - and a chiropractor in Canada, was charged with falsely implying he was a registered doctor after police raided his health centre in Jardine's Bazaar, Causeway Bay, on June 19. In Eastern Court, magistrate Alan Wright had to amend the trial date twice to accommodate Yuan's busy schedule. Della Mak, the manager of Yuan's Jardine's Bazaar centre and his nearby colon hydrotherapy practice in Pennington Street, advised Yuan several times from the gallery about a convenient date. Yuan said he would have to fly to Los Angeles as soon as possible to attend a cancer conference. From mid-October, he is due to take part in conferences in Australia and New Zealand on pregnancy and on ionic testing - the use of urine and saliva for health analysis. Mr Wright fixed the hearing for October 7 and released Yuan on $5,000 bail. Yuan's card offers services on weight loss and general health consultation to acupuncture and homeopathy. He also offers herbal medicine, reflexology and massage.
