Valery Yuabov received both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Computer Science from Queens College of CUNY in 1983 and 1986 respectfully.
In 1993, his mother Ester was diagnosed with fourth stage of cancer. As for treatment, she agreed to surgery only, refusing to undergo any chemo and radiation.
On the advice of her relative, Ester and Valery traveled from US to their homeland Uzbekistan to meet a holistic practitioner and herbalist.
Meeting with Doctor Mukhitdin Umarov was a turning point in lives of both mother and son.
Mukhitdin Umarov was a doctor in a true sense of this word. His amazing pulse diagnostic abilities and in-depth understanding of a human body were acknowledged worldwide. In his village-like town of Namangan, Mukhitdin and his staff treated about 150 patients a day!
With help of medicinal herbs, Doctor Umarov assisted Ester to stay in relative health close to 5 years. During mother’s treatment and for 15 years after her passing, Valery was the doctor’s apprentice. That included times spent in Uzbekistan and during doctor’s visits to New York City.
In 2017, Valery graduated from New York College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (NYCTCM) in Mineola, New York. He graduated with a Masters in Acupuncture and, then returned to NYCTCM to complete his studies in Oriental Medicine with Masters in Herbology.
Valery practices acupuncture and herbology in own clinic as well as other clinics.
