Who we are
Wing Ming Herbs, a Company, established in May 1993, started as just a small section in one side of a convenience store. The founder, Ming Seid, is a graduate of Sun Yat-Sen University of Medical Sciences (中山医科大学), in Guangzhou, Guangdong, China and worked as a medical doctor in China for over 20 years before coming to the U.S. Ming’s goal is to help people stay healthy with Chinese herbs while providing affordable prices and great services. Ming insists in free herbal consultations for our customers. Over the years Wing Ming has helped thousands of people in Oregon & Washington, some of them from as far as Eugene, Oregon and Spokane, Washington. Just to get her advice for what herbs to take for any health concern. As one of our customers said in a review, “Wing Ming Herbs is one of Portland’s Treasure. We are all very fortunate to have Ms. Ming in our community”.
In September 2003 Wing Ming Herbs moved to its current location that contains 3000 sq.ft. of retail space and over 2000 sq.ft of warehouse area to carry over 550 different kinds of bulk herbs and 800 types of herbal pills! We carry the full line of Plum Flower® brand of herbal formula and many other brands like Min Shan® and Lanzhou®. We also carry many natural products by well known companies like NOW® Foods, Ezvill Ltd, Best in Nature®, BioCalth®, Mitsuwa®, Mikei®, and many others.
Wing Ming Herbs has become a supplier for many practitioners in Oregon & Washington who come for herbal formulas, acupuncture needles, cupping cups, and more. Many practitioners send their patients to get their herbal prescriptions filled at Wing Ming Herbs. To make it convenient our customers, herbal prescriptions can be emailed or faxed to us, and, once the formulas is filled, it then can be picked up or shipped to the patients directly. Beside practitioners, many beauty and nails salons come to us for essential oils, and other supplies. Even restaurant owners come to Wing Ming for herbs, tea, and spices. As of today, Wing Ming Herbs have over 200 registered retail clients. Because we have such a broad customers base and well known status, Wing Ming Herbs has been chosen by national companies like Ezvill Ltd, (signature product: Solo Slim® Evolution) as the exclusive distributor in Oregon.
Today’s Wing Ming is more than a traditional Chinese herbal store, we have become the combination of Eastern and Western herbal supplements and health foods super store.
