With traditional Chinese Medicine as the main approach, he combines traditional Chinese medicine with Western medicine in disease treatment and prevention. Over the last twenty-seven years, he has published more than ten books concerning acupuncture and moxibustion, and traditional Chinese medicine and Chinese pharmacology, such as Jianmei Jingluo Tu, A Collection of TCM Clinical Experience, etc. Among the books, The Dictionary of Acupuncture and Moxibustion and Meridian Points, which has been called "epoch-making illustrative dictionary for the points of acupuncture and moxibustion and meridians" and "the first creation in history," is chiefly edited by Dr. Li Ding and published by Dongyang Academic Publishing House, Tokyo, Japan.

According to many years' teaching and clinical experience, Dr. Li Ding has combined the meridian theory with Qigong's characteristic of regulating respiration and transmitting the Qi (vital energy in human body) to create Meridian Qigong in July 1985. Meridian Qigong has been called "the latest Qigong for transmitting Qi along the meridians." In April 1986, he ran an international shortterm training class of Meridian Qigong and ten doctors coming from U.K., West Germany, U.S.A., Norway, India, Singapore and Belgium attended the class. This Qigong is also welcomed at home. On the basis of Taiji Qigong; eighteen types, he has had his own Taiji Qigong twenty-eight types, and his Taiji Qigong was also welcomed when he taught in Italy and Singapore.

From the year of 1984 on, Dr. Li Ding has been invited to give lectures in Japan, Italy, Singapore, America, West Germany and Canada. At present he is working, teaching and doing scientific research in the college and hospital.

He is also working on some new books in which he will show people his new and uncommon ideas on medical science and they will soon come out.
